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?

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.

tongue twister?

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.

Welcome to Destiny, or I should say Middle Earth…
I’m Jack Lang, sheriff and former Navy pilot. To say Destiny was not what I expected would be like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure. I’d been looking for Mayberry, a quaint little safe town to raise my daughter. That ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy, who turned out to be a storm witch with a djinni brother and an ex who was… hell, I don’t know what he is. But I wasn’t sure I could stay. I had a teenage daughter to consider.
I’m Tempe Pomeroy, Tempestaerie, mail lady, and as Jack likes to say, trouble magnet.
Isn’t it just like a man to exit a relationship when he finds out a woman’s got a few little secrets? Jack’s finally investigating my little brother’s disappearance but time is running out and our relationship’s gone from attraction to suspicion, support to friendship, romance to oh-my-god-get-away-from-me revulsion.
Jack’s was a Navy pilot. He says he wants to know “everything”. He may stick around, help me save my brother and discover the whereabouts of my parents, but I doubt he’ll still want to take me to the Mardi Gras ball, once he knows “everything”. He’ll probably take the first jet out of Middle Earth ’cause there’s a lot of everything…

Brette: Intentions Gone Astray (Conundrums of the Misses
Culpepper Book 3)
He thought his adventures were over…
A rogue reluctantly turned rector, Alexander Hawksworth, prefers soirées to
sermons and parties to prayers. Though impoverished, he seizes every
opportunity to escape parish duties, preferring to hob nob with London’s
finest–especially after the precocious and petite Brette Culpepper arrives in
Town. Alex secretly fantasizing about claiming the breathtaking beauty as his very
own, and when he unexpectedly inherits an earldom, he’s determined to make her
his countess… Until he’s accused of murdering the previous earl.
Then she burst headlong into his life…
New to Society, Brette adores the whirlwind social scene, the stream of
invitations… the slightly-sensual verbal sparring with the devilishly
attractive, much too witty, and oh so unsuitable Mr. Hawksworth. But her
fairytale existence crashes to a halt when rumors circulate she’s a peer’s
illegitimate granddaughter. Even though he’s left her a tidy inheritance,
formerly hospitable doors slam in her face as a newly appointed guardian
emerges, intent on stealing her wealth and forcing her to wed an elderly despot.
Time is against them as Alex struggles to clear his name and deliver the woman
he loves from an unthinkable fate.

The Billionaire Cowboys trilogy by best-selling author
Kristina Knight kicks off with a seductive story of long-simmering feelings and
hot Vegas nights.
What the Bachelor
Gets
When Vegas Nightly names local property developer Gage
Reeves as its sexiest bachelor, he’s barraged with a stream of showgirls, local
socialites, and entertainers who all expect something from him. But all Gage
wants is to make a success of his new luxury shopping development.
Enter Callie Holliday. Callie dreams of having the hottest
day spa in Vegas, but she’s saddled with a bad location and an account balance
full of zeroes. When she walks into a last-chance meeting with an angel
investor and finds herself face to face with Gage, the childhood friend on whom
she had a huge crush, she’s not sure his reputation is the right match for her
business. But then he offers her a storefront in his new high-end retail
complex, and she has to admit it’s a thoroughly tempting proposition. But
feelings she thought were long buried threaten to turn their deal from strictly
professional to decidedly personal.
It’s risky business gambling on love.
What the Heiress
Wants
Denver publishing heiress Miranda Clayton craves more from
life than society parties and shopping sprees, but her tycoon father refuses to
take her seriously. Her solution? Beat him at his own game by going to work for
his top competitor, Connor Reeves, in Las Vegas.
Connor isn’t fooled by Miranda’s new plan for a second. He
knows exactly who she is; what he doesn’t know is why she’s pulling him into
her games. After their first meeting, Connor knows what he wants – Miranda in
his bed! But the more he’s around his new vice president, the more he wants
something deeper than a short-term fling. The question is does the lady want
Connor – or his business?
What the Gambler
Risks
Twenty-something ice queen Sabrina Smith enjoys the fame and
fortune she’s found writing self-help books for a largely female audience. Her
readers hang on every word of how the Vegas Virgin – an unflattering and
inaccurate moniker given to her by a local shock jock – juggles dating,
working, and friendships in Sin City.
And that’s why Jase Reeves spells trouble.
Jase knows Sabrina’s secret – that she’s not nearly as cold
as she would like people to think – and he’s through keeping it. He didn’t
intend to have a one-night stand with the Vegas Virgin, but now he can’t get
her out of his head. And he can’t keep living this lie.
With Jase back at the tables in Vegas, Sabrina has one goal:
stay away from the handsome gambler before he melts her career – and her heart.

explain any (or none) of your answers.

Now twenty years have gone by, and she’s Cindy Sullivan, stuck in a loveless marriage to Patrick, an ethically corrupt lawyer who controls her every move… And the daughter she shares with Sean is getting married.

A moment of passion leads to unexpected complications…
After a few stolen moments during the reception, Sean is determined to be with Cindy again.

Seeing this as her long awaited second chance, Cindy leaves her husband and runs back to Sean, but Patrick is prepared to use any means necessary—legal or otherwise—to keep Cindy by his side.

Seducing Her
The brilliant, multi-layered, bestselling author, Houston Havens thrills your senses with this 282-page teaser book. It includes only the first 4 chapters of each of the first 4 books in this series. This is not a full book – it’s meant to provide a sample, and it’s free on Kindle Unlimited.

From the Series

4860 AD Earth. Humans had been warned yet refused to believe doomsday was at hand until it was too late to find sanctuary.
Since the beginning of humanity, an unseen presence guided human beliefs, actions, and lives. The Secret Blood Doctrine is the law the Dirt Dwellers Elites live by. They have their own goals and reasons for controlling the Earth. The humans were a means for accomplishing their goals, and a way to cover operating costs by culling them at the end of each cycle. At the arranged times, the Dirt Dwellers Elites withdrew to the Underworld with a few chosen ones to await the renewal.
Book 1: Sinful Surrender
Top psychic spy Fay Avalon suspects what she’s remote viewed in her mind-travels and what her post-catastrophic dystopian government of the Underworld is stating as fact is a lie. In search of the truth, she escapes the Underworld, only to land in the arms of her enemy; the Airborne. Will she get the chance to uncover the secrets the Underworld is hiding before those on the surface, Logan and his brothers, discover who she is? Will they make her their wife or execute her as a spy?
Book 2: Phantom Desire
The search for truth continues with Fay’s friend Chandra Lamar, but from a past she can’t remember. A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it’s a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she’ll never have. Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart? Will uncovering her true past expose the Underworld’s deception?
Book 3: Exposed Ecstasy
Tessla Reto escapes the Underworld after finding the two men sent to help her dead. She’s rescued by a handsome stranger…or is she? Faerydae’s search for truth abruptly ends when a woman who stirs everything he’s spent a lifetime denying falls into his life. Will Shomar be able to win the woman of his dreams or will a fairy always have her heart? Can the Underworld’s long reach find Tessla, daughter of the ruler of the Dirt Dwellers, on the space station or will they find a way to draw her back to the surface?
Book 4: Intimate Betrayal
Kindise Wyatt is in search of her lover and escapes her Star Rider capture with the help of an Old World Mole. What she doesn’t know is, his sexy but mysterious friend, Jaden Valenti is a Dirt Dweller with orders to assassinate her. Will betrayal crush Kindise’s inner strength to help the Freedom Fighters defeat the Dirt Dweller Elites?

Be a Guest Author

Romance Lives Forever uses Signup Genius to schedule guests. The system also reminds authors of their visit. One post is available each day. Once you choose a date, no one else will be able to take it. You can sign up for more than one visit; however, each visit must be in a different month.
January – April
March – June
July – September
October – December
