Know the Heroine from Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol's Curse by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifiromanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol’s Curse by Veronica Scott

Genre Scifi romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

One of the 13 all new stories in this year’s Pets in Space® 4 anthology to benefit Hero-Dogs INC.,

An unusual bequest….

Juli Shaeffer, the Nebula Zephyr’s cruise director, receives a mysterious bequest from the estate of a longtime passenger – a lump of rock taken from a reef on the planet Tahumaroa. Legend states anyone who steals from the ocean gods will be cursed. The passenger’s will requests the rock be returned to the beach so his heirs won’t be affected by the bad luck he believed he’d incurred. Juli doesn’t believe in superstitions and she agrees to carry out this small favor on the ship’s next stop at the planet in question.

Until the rock disappears from her office…

When the rock disappears and reappears in various locations around the ship, and seems connected to a steadily escalating series of mishaps, Juli turns to Third Officer Steve Aureli as the only one she feels she can trust. Along with Steve and his elderly Aunt Dian – a passenger aboard the Nebula Zephyr for this cruise – she investigates the strange series of malfunctions plaguing the interstellar luxury liner. Steve and Juli enlist his Aunt Dian’s dog, Charrli, a retired Sectors Z Corps canine, to help them track the missing rock as it moves about the ship.

Juli and Steve must find the rock, hang onto it and transport it to the planet’s surface, before the alien idol’s curse turns deadly. The attraction between the two of them grows as the threat to Juli becomes more and more focused. Can she carry out her task while he keeps her safe from the alien curse? Will the capricious alien idol bring them good fortune…or disaster?

Know the Heroine: Juli

Know the Heroine from Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol's Curse by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifiromanceHere are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Juli would probably research the next stop for the Nebula Zephyr, since she’s the Cruise Director, and identify fun things for her passengers to do while on the planet.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She tries to eat a healthy diet but she’s on the go all day so her snacks are fruits and nuts. If she was feeling really decadent, she’d go have a special ice cream cake in one of the ship’s upscale restaurants.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

On duty she wears the cruise line’s blue and white uniforms, mixing and matching various approved pieces depending on the day’s activities. She likes to be casual in her time off but she does enjoy wearing a fabulous gown for special occasions.

Does she know how to fix things?

Juli knows how to problem solve for her passengers, so she knows who to talk to on the ship to resolve issues and she’s happy to work through the cruise line’s offices on various planets to fix problems encountered by passengers in their local travels. She’s not technically trained in any way so she’d call the ship’s chief engineer or ask the ship’s Artificial Intelligence to fix anything of that nature.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Earlier in the same cruise, one of the passengers, who is a famous opera singer, and who has symbiotic butterflies instead of hair, was pounced on by the ship’s cat. The alien butterflies flew away, the diva nearly died (because she lost her symbionts – the cat didn’t hurt her) and only the ship’s captain could persuade the singer not to sue. Luckily the butterflies returned. Juli had to apologize and swallow a lot of insults directed at the cat!

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She’s very good with children, a natural at talking with them and discovering their interests and enthusiasms. She organizes a lot of activities on the cruise ship to keep passengers’ children happy and busy.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She needs a loud alarm to wake up but once she does open her eyes, she’s a total morning person who jumps out of bed and dives into the day’s tasks. She’s always conscious of her To Do list and feels the pressure to get things done.

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

Juli has built up a healthy level of self-confidence over her years working in the interstellar cruise ship industry so she knows she can resolve problems and issues successfully. In her personal life, she’s a bit more insecure, as with her crush on Third Officer Steve Aureli. Fortunately the events in this story force Juli and Steve together in the course of their duties and she’s able to pursue the romance she’s always hoped to have.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

She has a bit of an inner conflict not doing everything herself but as she’s risen through the ranks, she’s had to learn to delegate effectively and not micro manage. She’s effective at training people to carry out their duties, which eases her mind, and she has a wonderful assistant on the Nebula Zephyr, who is able to fill in for Juli when the issue of the idol’s curse sidelines her.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

I know Juli loves earrings but she doesn’t have any piercings or tattoos. She does like the tatts Officer Aureli has though.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Since she lives aboard the ship, she borrows a groundcar from the local cruise line office if possible when she’s on a planet, or would rent a vehicle if necessary. She’s not much for public transit only because she’s always under so much time pressure.

Recycle or toss?

Definitely recycle!

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Return of Dancer of the Nile (The Gods of Egypt) by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #AncientWorldRomanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Return of Dancer of the Nile (The Gods of Egypt) by Veronica Scott

Genre Ancient World Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

1550BCE

Nima, formerly a tavern dancer in the land of the Nile, has settled into the leisurely life of her dreams as the pampered, beloved wife to a high ranking general who’s also a member of Pharaoh’s court. She’s sworn never to dance for anyone else but Kamin, the man she loves. All is fine until one day news arrives that her husband has been killed in a chariot accident while on a trip to a remote city on Pharaoh’s behalf.

But as a reward for their previous service to Egypt against a dangerous enemy, the gods had promised Nima and Kamin they’d die at the same moment…so if she still lives, so must he.

Why is the ruler of the city lying to Pharaoh about Kamin’s death? What is the woman covering up? And where is Kamin?

Time for Nima the elegant lady to vanish from Thebes and Nima the skilled dancer to make her way in disguise to the far distant province and fight for Kamin’s life. She’ll have to deal with angry gods, black magic, an enemy prince and a deadly ghost along the way.

Nima is the only one who can rescue her beloved from the dark fate planned for him by Egypt’s enemies…

Standalone sequel to Dancer of the Nile.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve always been fascinated by ancient Egypt and this is my tenth novel set there. I love the challenge of telling a good story, with the gods taking an active role in the events. Mixing romance and adventure with the details of life along the Nile thousands of years ago is a challenge I relish. I was excited to return to Nima the dancer and Kamin the soldier, who both first appeared in Dancer of the Nile and tell more of their ongoing story. This is a standalone book but there are mild spoilers for the first book. And I relish the opportunity to put all my historical research to work and create an environment where readers feel at home in ancient Egypt, but keeping it relatable to the modern audience.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Science fiction romance is my first love, filling my e-reader (and what I write primarily), but I also read paranormal, fantasy, urban fantasy, thrillers and Regency romance.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Going by what I reread the most, Judd Lauren in Nalini Singh’s Caressed by Ice. He was the template for all her lethal Arrow soldiers who fall in love and they’re my favorite characters in her Psy/Changeling series. She makes me feel like I want to be the woman to melt that ice! I’m also always impressed by Frederica in the Regency romance novel of the same name by Georgette Heyer.

What are you working on at the moment?

Currently I’m writing a holiday novella set in my fantasy romance world of Cladddare and having fun with it. After that I’ll be writing the next book in my scifi romance Badari Warriors series about genetically engineered soldiers of the far future.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In October the fourth annual Pets In Space® anthology releases and I have a full length scifi romance Star Cruise novel in the collection, all new. The fantasy holiday novella I mentioned should be out in November and hopefully the next Badari Warriors will be released in December. We’ll see how I do on that schedule!

Camron: A Badari Warriors #SciFi by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #SciFiRomanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here!

Camron: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 7) by Veronica Scott

Dr. Gemma Madarian is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped along with hundreds of other humans to be used for horrifying experiments conducted on a remote planet by alien scientists.
She and another prisoner, Camron of the Badari, are the only survivors of a deadly crash landing. She’s paired up with the genetically engineered soldier by their mutual enemies and sent fleeing through rough country, hunted for pleasure by an enemy officer and his ferocious trackers.
The enemy wants a triumphant kill. Gemma and Camron want to survive.
Camron never dreamt of having a mate but Gemma shatters his preconceptions and makes him desperate to do everything in his power to save her life and claim her for his.
There’s no help or refuge to be had in the desert where they’re fleeing for their lives.
Or is there?
Will Camron and Gemma live to fight another day and explore the growing attraction between them, or will ancient secrets and bitter rivalries end their bid for freedom?
This is the eighth book in the Badari Warriors world (and the seventh book in the numbered series) and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Top Blogger of 2018: Brenda Sparks

#Romance Lives Forever on #RLFblog Meet the top bloggers @NJWaltersauthor @Brenda_Sparks @VickiBatman As I looked at this list of names, I wondered if people would think I was only giving out this award to friends. That’s true, partially. Each has become a friend over the last year or has been for a long time. Hosting this site gives me a unique opportunity to get to know many authors. But the statistics speak for themselves. When I pulled year long stats from the backside of the blog, these were the names that floated to the top.

Brenda Sparks made the list as top blogger due to having the most page views throughout the entire year. She also promoted the blog itself. I was tickled when I looked at the stats and saw her name right at the top, because in my mind, she certainly deserved the appause. Please do visit her post and check out her book, Alpha Pair. Brenda wins a year of cover ads on RLF.

Of these, two were from the Cancer Awareness series (Vicki Batman and Iris Blobel). Four were paranormal romance. Four were historical. Two fantasy, and two were LGBT. If these don’t add up to ten it’s because some posts covered more than one genre. I invite you to click and visit each of these. They will be well worth your time.

Know the Hero from Gabe by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi romanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Gabe: A Badari Warriors Sci Fi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 5) by Veronica Scott

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13+
Gabe Carter, hotshot pilot and ex-Special Forces soldier, is far from his home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Shot down by the enemy over desolate territory far from his Badari allies and gravely injured, Gabe’s only hope is a mysterious woman on the run herself.
Keshara has to decide whether to abandon the human to die of his injuries on a windswept mountain top or give up her own quest for freedom and take him to a place he can be helped. The undeniable spark between them complicates matters.
His attraction to her is off the charts but when she betrays him to the Khagrish enemy, Gabe doesn’t know what to believe. Trapped inside an alien lab bursting with mysteries and lies, his only hope may be to trust her…again.
Because the renegade alien scientist running her own private experiments wants to use him to accomplish her goals and perpetuate the evil, no matter what she has to do to ensure his compliance. Keshara’s life hangs in the balance and Gabe has to make a choice.
This is the sixth book in the Badari Warriors world (and the fifth book in the series) and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Know the Hero from Gabe: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel (Sectors New Allies Series Book 5)

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Gabe can’t stand being inactive or bored so he’d get up a card game with buddies, maybe go for a late night run or volunteer for extra duty in his pilot job.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
He works hard to stay in shape, to be prepared for combat missions and eats very healthy foods, so probably a mix of carbs and proteins, maybe trail mix with nuts and dried berries if he only needs a snack.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
He generally wears black tee shirts, camouflage utility pants and combat boots. Plus of course his knife and a blaster!
Does he know how to fix things?
He’s a soldier and a pilot primarily but he’ll make an attempt to fix things in an emergency. He’s got a good technical mind and understands the bigger picture of how things work in his technologically advanced universe. His way of fixing things might not be the conventional solution but it works.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Gabe does the best he can under any situation and if there’s a failure, he learns from it and moves on. He’s not easily defeated – he’s constantly thinking of alternative solutions and will only give up when he’s dead…so, in effect as long as he’s breathing, he’s moving forward and problem solving.
The book begins with him flying through a storm, trying to escape three enemy fighters, and he eventually crashes, but Gabe perseveres despite his injuries.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Gaber doesn’t have much experience with kids but he likes them, especially their thirst for knowledge about the world around them. He enjoys tutoring the Badari cubs in the sanctuary valley, which he does as he has free time.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He’s not a morning person but give him something hot with a hefty dose of caffeine and he’s ready to go. In combat situations, he doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for the ideal time of day, so he’s trained himself to respond rapidly at any hour of the day or night.
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
Gabe’s always himself – he doesn’t put on airs and he’s not boastful. What you see in what you get with him. Most people in the valley are aware he’s an ex-Special Forces soldier and they know he’s a hot pilot. They can see how the Alpha relies on Gabe for tackling dangerous assignments, so he lets his actions speak for him.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
If a worker is assigned to do a specific task, like servicing the engines of captured enemy flyers, he’ll stay out of the person’s way. Otherwise, he’s a self-service kinda guy who’d rather just take care of whatever needs doing.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
He has a Sectors Special Forces tattoo on his upper bicep. No piercings. Not to give spoilers here but IF Gabe was to become the mate of a Badari woman (author gives coy grin here – you’ll have to read the book), then he’d receive a ‘claiming mark’ on his shoulder, which the Badari goddess would turn into a golden circle like a tatt on his shoulder, to show her approval of the mate bond.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
In the dire situation on the Badari planet, there aren’t any private vehicles. He flies shuttles which have been captured from the enemy, in support of military operations.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle! Gabe’s a practical guy and he cares about the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Heroine from Star Cruise Mystery Dancer by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi romanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Star Cruise Mystery Dancer by Veronica Scott

Genre Scifi romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
New Sectors novel, included in Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 3 anthology. Tassia Megg is a woman on the run after the death of her elderly guardian. Her search to get off the planet in a hurry comes when chance directs her to an open dance audition for the luxury cruise liner Nebula Zephyr’s resident troupe. If there is one thing Tassia can do, it is dance!
Security Officer Liam Austin is suspicious of the newest performer to join the Comettes. She shows all the signs of being a woman on the run and seems to fit the Sectors-wide broadcast description of a missing thief, accused of stealing priceless artifacts. As he gets to know Tassia during the cruise, he starts to wonder if she’s something more – a long vanished princess in hiding from deadly political enemies of her family perhaps? And what’s the story with the three-eyed feline companion other crew members swear Tassia brought aboard the ship? Does the animal even exist?
As the ship approaches its next port of call, all the issues come to a boil and Liam must decide if he’ll step in to help Tassia or betray her. Life is about to get very interesting aboard the Nebula Zephyr as Liam tries to uncover the truth. Could F’rrh, the peculiar alien cat he has been hearing about, be the key to the mystery and Tassia’s fate?

Know the Heroine from Star Cruise: Mystery Dancer

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Tassia has a companion, a three eyed- alien feline named F’rrh, who is a genie of sorts and lives in a beautifully painted black lacquer box when she isn’t out in the world. So Tassia might sit for a while with F’rrh in her lap, and have a conversation in their native language about what to do next in her escape across the galaxy. Once Tassia meets Liam on board the ship of course, she likes to go out with him after shows and they often go to the ship’s gigantic beach deck for picnics. She also makes good friends among the dance troupe members and spends time with them. The cruise ship crew are allowed to make use of the amenities when off duty and the ship’s Artificial Intelligence also has an endless supply of trideos and shows.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Rich desserts! Since she works off so many calories every day at rehearsal and doing the shows, she can eat as much as she wants and not be concerned about the somewhat skimpy costumes. But in general Tassia eats a balanced diet, since she needs to be fit to perform.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Tassia is a dancer so she likes loose fitting, flowy dresses, although when it’s time to rehearse she wears clothes like leotards or leggings and a sports bra. She enjoys going barefoot as much as she can. Her costumes for the shows on the interstellar cruise ship Nebula Zephyr as a member of the prestigious Comettes dance troupe are elaborate, glittery and glamorous.
Does she know how to fix things?
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Tassia hasn’t spent much time with children, having been on the run from assassins nearly all her life after her royal family was murdered in a coup, but she’s generally a very friendly and sweet person. She does help teach a basic dance class for the passengers’ kids on the cruise ship and they like her. She’s patient and good at giving instructions and corrections.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
She’s had to learn to wake up instantly and be ready to move at a moment’s notice because of the danger surrounding her, so Tassia doesn’t linger in bed or dawdle over breakfast. She’s a morning person by nature but has late nights as a Comette dancer.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
No one was ever supposed to suspect she was a princess, for her own safety, so she’s polite and reserved. She doesn’t put on any airs.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Tassia will always try to handle things for herself.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
She’s not much of a jewelry person but will wear the blingy, dangling earrings mandated as part of her costume. There’s a giant gem involved in the mystery surrounding her and whether she is or isn’t the real princess, so she tends to associate jewels with trouble and unhappiness.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
As a member of the ship’s crew, when on a planet she has to rent a groundcar or take public transport.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle definitely! As a fugitive she’s been poor and hungry so Tassia believe nothing should ever go to waste.
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
