Meet Katrina from Jager @jsubject #RLFblog #scifi #romance

Welcome Katrina from Jager, a new scifi adventure romance.

Jager Galactic Defenders #2

Genre SciFi Adventure Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Jager's new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn't show up, Jager must find her and drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.
Katrina is a Defender, not a princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.
But when a new enemy threatens both their lives, they must work together to survive.

Introducing Katrina

Age: 20 Earth years
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Earth, though I was conceived on my mother's home planet, Hemera
Profession: I'm a Galactic Defender, not a Princess.
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): My mother is Hemera and my father is Kalaren.
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I can fit in on Earth better than most other Defenders. I have light brown skin with long, dark hair, and dark brown eyes. I'm fit. I need to be to bring down the Erebus. They're not exactly lightweights, and I prefer hand-to-hand combat rather than the plazers and bows the other Defenders use. I don't have an eyebrow ridge like my dad, but I do have the 'V' of freckles across my shoulders and down my back like my mom.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I was born and raised on Earth. A couple years ago, my home was attacked by the Erebus. It was after a Galactic Defender arrived to help us that I found out the man who I believed to be my father wasn't my dad, and that I wasn't Terran. Turns out the Defender who arrived on Earth is my dad, my mom was the long lost princess of Hemera, and I haven't been on Earth since that day. But, I'm itching to go back. I know I can't stay there, but I just want to see what's changed, how my friends are doing.
Who is the significant other in your life?
I don't have a significant other, like a boyfriend. Jeff Bennett and I almost had a thing on Earth, but I had to leave the planet, and didn't get a chance to say goodbye. My squad leader, Jager, is hot, but we don't exactly get along. And then I have Jace, my best friend. He's the only Defender who has my back, so we spend a lot of time together. But, he's nothing more than a friend.
How do you dress?
I wear my blue Defender uniform. Though, sometimes when I'm training on my own, I'll wear a pair of leggings and a sports bra. If I lived with my parents on Hemera, I'd have to wear their royal garb. While the lehenga choli I wore for my mother's coronation was beautiful, it's not something I'd want to wear all the time.
Please tell us about your education.
I graduated from high school on Earth, though I didn't make the ceremony. I was supposed to go to university that fall, but wasn't on the planet to do so. While the Hemera council taught me a bit about Hemera culture, I've learned a lot about the races belonging to the Galactic Alliance as a Defender. I've also learned how to bring down an Erebus by hand. Not stuff I could have learned on Earth.
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
I don't have pockets or a purse—I have no need for them—but I carry my zuranium blade in a special pouch in my boot. It goes with me everywhere I go, because I never know when I'll meet up with an Erebus that needs to be taken out.
What is your family like?
They're great people, really, just a tad bit overprotective. My mom is now the Queen of Hemera. She's wonderful, and rules far differently than her father and brother did. The commoners are no longer starving and dressed in rags. Everyone works together for the good of the planet. And with the dome the Alliance installed for her, the planet no longer had to worry about an Erebus attack. My dad is a legend among the Defenders. I hope I can be half as good as he was. He was leader of Echo squad for many Galactic years, and killed more Erebus than I can ever imagine. Then there's my sister Gwenodyn. She's not really my sister, but my parents are raising her after the last Erebus attack on Hemera when her mother was killed. She's a sweetheart, but not when she uses her Mingot mind-reading abilities to get her own way.
When (if) you lie or are upset, what gives you away?
I scratch my arms. It's a habit I wish I didn't have, as it totally gives me away when I'm lying.
What would you like to tell your writer?
It would have been nice if you'd given me more than one friend. Though, I wouldn't trade Jace for the universe. And why is this book called Jager when it's supposed to be my story?

Is It True: Ungranted Wishes by Grace Risata #RLFblog #Paranormal

Play Is It True with today's guest Grace Risata, author of Ungranted Wishes, a Paranormal Romantic Comedy This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.
First, tell us about your book.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
It would be putting it mildly to say that full-figured Cleo Welch was in a funk. Dead end job? Check. Bank account? Running low. Sex life? Non-existent.
Her luck took a turn for the better when she stumbled upon a magic brass pot at a rummage sale. After getting drunk and rubbing things the right way, Cleo found herself in possession of one extremely attractive genie who was very grateful to be released.
What's a girl to do when a four thousand year old genie is far more interested in satisfying her every desire, rather than granting any of her wishes? Well…she does the genie. That's a no-brainer!
Warning: This full length novel contains quite a few explicit sex scenes (including ones involving candy that explodes, a dirty-talking detective, and an ancient ritual performed with raspberries). Every scene is absolutely consensual between all parties involved. All my stories come with a guarantee that you will crack a smile, find a happily-ever-after ending, and never have to deal with an annoying cliffhanger. There's also no cheating, no billionaires, no bigfoot sightings, and plenty of character backstory.
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, it is my fourth full length novel!
this book is part of a series?
No, it is a stand-alone novel.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, it kept me awake with new ideas for scenes. I fell in love with the characters and didn't want the story to end.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I had to research Genies and Ancient Egypt. I also researched ritual scenes with raspberries that are Rated R! How's that for a tongue twister?
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No, everyone is human. Well, I guess the genie is a genie.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, BBW, Romance, Comedy, Suspense, Paranormal.

Yes, my German is passable.

I would first and foremost like to thank everyone for taking the time to give my stories a chance. My goal is to take you out of your world, and all the stresses that go along with everyday life, and bring you into my world of romance and fantasy. I have a special weakness for hot alpha males and the feisty heroines who love them. Above all else, I hope you got a laugh out of my book. I aim to incorporate as much comedy into my romance as is humanly possible.
My professional biography is as follows (I'm not sure why it's in the third person, evidently that's the rule): Grace is happiest when reading, eating Portillos hot dogs, and patiently waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Pack the boxes. Romance Lives Forever is moving May 17th #RLFblog #authors

The Romance Lives Forever blog moves from Blogspot to Wordpress May 17, 2017. If you hate moving as much as I do, you'll be happy to know all the heavy lifting will be done by professionals. Your part will be to grab a favorite drink, sit back, take it easy, and come read the posts in beautiful new surroundings.

Once the move completes, all posts currently on the Blogspot version of Romance Lives Forever will appear on the new site also. On the Blogspot site, a note at the top will redirect readers to the new Wordpress location. Links on original posts will remain active, and all posts will remain on the Blogspot old blog while also appearing on the Wordpress blog.

Want a sneak peek of the new blog? It's under construction so it doesn't look now the way it will when it opens. But here's a peek: http://rlfblog.com/ Go ahead. I'll wait.
Okay, welcome back! Do you want to know more? Here you go.

For Readers

On the new site, you'll have a listing of authors so you can find your favorite. Each book will be listed by name and by genre. Author interviews will have their own home and so will character interviews. As always, you'll be able to leave comments, share posts, and find great books. The new site will be available on Kindle, RSS, email, and other programs.

Sharing and Reach

The current feed from the blog to Triberr's blog-sharing system will reroute to the new site, ensuring an unbroken link to Twitter and Facebook outreaches. As always, social media share links will appear on each post. Genre specific areas will allow you to post your book in the area it best fits. A new registration system is already in place. We now use SignUp Genius, which lets you confirm your own date and sends you a reminder as well. A new interview system is being prepared. Old favorites such as Character Interviews, 5 Easy Questions, and so on will be available. Overall, the site will be easier to sign up on and will draw even more readers. The current reach is over 3 million. I expect that to increase rapidly.

Cover ads

A cover ad costs $5 for one month. Thre is a discount for multiple months. A quarter year is $12, and a year is $48. Prices will remain the same until the end of 2017.
If you buy one year of ad space between now and the end of June, you'll get an additional three months free. Fifteen months of ads would normally cost $60, so it's a savings of 20%. You can change covers as often as once a month. Please click the PayPal button on the right side of the blog to order, or email me to request an invoice.
