Stressing Orol from Dark Flight @CynthiaSax #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceToday we’re reading about Orol from Dark Flight by Cynthia Sax. Tell us about your book.

His mission. His challenge. His forever.

Orol, the Refuge’s second-in-command, has been given what he believes is a simple mission—escort two human females to the settlement. The winged warrior arrives at the meeting site to find one of the females missing and the other aiming a gun at his head. To rescue the first, he must capture the second. Once he has Rhea in his talons, however, he realizes he never wants to let her go.

Her enemy. Her captor. Her everything.

Rhea doesn’t trust anyone. She certainly doesn’t follow commands issued by a gorgeous flying male with glittering eyes, a beautiful face, and a seductive touch. Orol is dominant, edged with darkness, and determined to find her sister. Rhea will do anything to prevent that, even if it means playing sensual games of submission with her powerful enemy, seducing him into forgetting everything except her.

Dark Flight is a stand-alone Sci Fi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.

It Takes a Cat Burglar by Cailin Briste @CailinBriste #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceToday’s featured book is It Takes a Cat Burglar: A Thief in Love Suspense Romance, a sci-fi suspense romance by Cailin Briste.

Sebastian St. Croix is a wealthy businessman with a specialized hobby. He steals things. As in entering without permission and purloining expensive artifacts and art objects. This could be his flaw, a penchant for taking what doesn’t belong to him, but it isn’t. He’s a thief in a white hat. The items he takes have all been previously stolen from public museums and are in private collections. He returns these priceless works of art once he appropriates them.

Like most romance heroes, Sebastian is handsome. When Darcelle sees him for the first time after a year of interacting through notes this is what she thinks. “He was gorgeous. Only a master sculptor could have formed a face of such perfect symmetry. The masculinity of his high cheekbones, angled jaw, and straight brows was softened by his exquisite lips. From beneath black locks slanting over his forehead, pale green eyes stared at her.”

On the surface it doesn’t look as though Sebastian has any flaws.

Rich? Check.

Good looking? Check.

Uses his skills for good? Check.

But a romance book isn’t as fun to read if the hero doesn’t have at least one flaw he must struggle with or overcome to find his happily ever after. The aspect of Sebastian’s personality that makes him an exceptional cat burglar also makes his love life one of physical release with no long-term connections. He must be in control. And then Darcelle Lebeau enters his life. She exposes that flaw, so that even Sebastian recognizes he must change or lose her.

It Takes a Cat Burglar is a novella, so the length limits creating a hero with multi-layered flaws. The best full-length romances are a spider web of the hero and heroine’s flaws, intractable situations, and devious villains. I personally love a hero who struggles to relinquish control. When he lets go, the result is so satisfying.

Which flaws are your favorites? Are there some flaws that would make a hero unacceptable? What about dark heroes? The darker the hero, the more flaws he has, but getting a bad boy to fall in love is a huge favorite among romance readers. So, what part of the bad boy persona is flawed and what shouldn’t change? Let me know what you think.

It Takes a Cat Burglar: A Thief in Love

When Darcelle Lebeau throws off the invisible chains that keep her bound to her family, she discovers a new vocation. Tempted to enter the illegal playground of a man she nicknames Matou, she becomes a cat burglar in training. Deeply ensnared with each task he entices her to fulfill, she fails to discover his identity and true intentions.

Sebastian St. Croix, a wealthy businessman, has a dark side. He’s a thief, a cat burglar who steals art and historical objects. For one year, he trains Darcelle to become his assistant, remaining incognito, observing her from afar. His admiration grows along with his desire for her with every phase-one challenge she completes. Phase two will test the limits of his control. Hands-on personal training? Yes. Sex? No. With his sister’s happiness at stake, nothing, not even the tempting Darcelle Lebeau, can interfere with accomplishing the biggest break-in of his career.

Today we’re reading about NarrAy Jorlan from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen. Tell us about your book.

He’s a professional thief. She’s a by-the-book army captain. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device.
Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

Stressing NarrAy Jorlan

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

Age: 28

Birthplace: Tarthian Empire

Profession: Captain in the All People’s Liberation Army (a rebel)

Ethnicity: Better (an addictive, enhanced human)

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.

NarrAy’s story starts out with her wearing a hot red party dress so she can fit in at a night club. She’s there undercover to meet and hire a professional thief. The place is crowded to the max.

How does the heroine feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she displaying that gives it away?

She is not happy about being there and stands above the crowd on a hotel balcony, her arms crossed while she taps one foot.

Is she more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

NarrAy is not shy, but because her kind is addictive, they are forbidden access in society. She stays away from crowds.

If she drinks, what is her drink of choice at this party?

She’s too aware of her pheromones and how they affect others to risk getting drunk. She drinks something that looks alcoholic but isn’t.

How much drink is her usual?

She sometimes has a glass of wine with dinner. That’s it.

The heroine figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

She’s avoiding anyone and everyone. Not only is her kind forbidden to mingle with others, they are not allowed to touch anyone either.

Is she likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?

Others go stand beside her. She is the strong, silent type.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?

Physically, she is tiny. However, all she has to do is release her pheromones and anyone in the vicinity will go glassy-eyed and slack-jawed. She’s not afraid of anyone no matter how big they are. Literally, no one can touch her if she doesn’t want them to.

Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

She would do the tossing.

Will she know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?

She’s often the first to leave, unless she’s meeting someone on a covert mission or op.

Stressing NarrAy from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure #RLFblog #scifi #romance

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?

She’s meek and demure and does not argue. However, she will not allow herself to be detained unjustly. It’s not something she’s proud of, but she can overpower with her pheromones and use her voice to control others. If she’s angry, the combination can kill.

How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?

She seeks backup if possible, but if she can’t, she will still investigate.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?

Protect the person. Then punish the assailant.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?

Take a second to assess the situation. She does not leap blindly into anything, but she’s quick to decide and once she has, she doesn’t pull back.

This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?

NarrAy will use her pheromones and voice to take command of the situation. She avoids that if possible.

The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?

She gets stiff and formal, retreats behind a wall of polite iciness and waits for the person to leave. If it looks like they aren’t, she makes excuses for leaving and gets out of there.

Someone younger than the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?

She comes alongside, talks to them, and if she outranks them (she’s a captain, after all) she will direct them as to how to fix the situation and proceed.

The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?

Pain is fleeting. Honor is forever.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“Think, assess, and then act without regret.”

What lesson from her past gets her through a stressful situation?

When her parents were killed and their belongings confiscated by the Tarthian Empress, she considered it the worst day of her life. From the moment she heard what had happened, she knew she had to take back what was stolen and honor her parents’ legacy. She reminded herself daily, sometimes hourly, that she would make them proud.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Anne Kane, author of Her Cyborg Lover, a Science Fiction Romance. 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.

Natalie’s loved and lost and she’s not so sure she wants to risk her heart again. She’s willing to settle for a challenging career as a space-pilot instructor and a succession of no-strings attached lovers. But that’s before her boss saddles her with the last thing she wants—a new partner.

Jebediah recognizes his perfect match in Natalie from the moment she seduces him on a dare. Everything that makes her a top-notch pilot, from her fearlessness to her passion, make a night in her bed both challenging and unforgettable.

A dangerous confrontation with a brutal enemy, an exploding drive engine and a traitor close to home throw everything into perspective. Natalie is going to have to put the past behind her and risk it all, because when your partner is also your lover, failure is not an option.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): (R)

Genre: Science Fiction Romance

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! I think it’s about my thirtieth. Of course there were some really short stories mixed in, and a number of anthologies so I could be wrong. Or right. There’s always a chance I’m right!

this book is part of a series?

Yes, this is the first book in the Terras Five series featuring lots of hot alpha male heroes, who just happen to be cyborgs.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

No. On the contrary, I was quite happy to fall blissfully asleep and dream about having my very own cyborg lover.

you did research for this book?

Umm. Sure. I sent out an intergalactic call for information on the development of a rumored cyborg colony with human ancestry. Imagine my surprise when they returned my call! Please don’t tell my children. They already think I’m a little strange.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes. Definitely! Spike is not human. He is a miniature dragon with the loyalty of a cat. Yup. That means exactly what you think.

this book has more than one genre?

Yes. It has science fiction and romance and cyborgs and futuristic. That’s lots for one book, don’t you think?

you speak more than one language?

No. Nein. Nyente. Non. Het. Nada. Nao. Nem.

you grew up where you live now?

**Snort** Hardly. As a kid I moved a lot, and then I became an adult and acquired the ability to move across entire continents in a single, stressful, insane move. Just FYI, I have no intention of ever moving again. Ever.

you love to read?

Yes.

you are never late?

True. I was once characterized as chronically early. And in case you were wondering, it’s not hereditary. I have two children who prove that on a regular basis.

you love pizza?

Yes.

you love sushi?

Yes.

you have a pet?

No. I have a spoiled little rescue mutt, and a Himalayan cat with a God complex.

Anne is a gorgeous supermodel who writes romance in her spare time while jetting around Europe with a string of boy-toys in tow.
Hmmm… no one is going to believe that. How about this?
Anne is an undercover agent for a super secret government agency and when not saving the world for democracy and all the good people, she writes romance one-handed on a special mini computer designed by a mad scientist just for her.
Yeah, that sounds way better. So, ignore the people who tell you she’s just an ordinary person with an extraordinary imagination. They’re just jealous because she gets to play with James Bond and vacation in exotic locations.
Honestly!
When she’s not busy saving the world or writing the next great novel, she likes to kayak, hike, ride motorcycles, swim, skate, practice karate, play her guitar, sing and of course, read.

Welcome Cailin Briste author of It Takes a Cat Burglar, a new sci-fi romance.

Why did you write this book?

It Takes a Cat Burglar began with a prompt in a Goodreads group writing event. The characters wouldn’t keep to the prompts story line, so I put it aside and wrote another story for the group. I had thought of including it in a boxed set, but when that fell through I decided to self-publish the novella. Now I intend to write additional A Thief in Love Romances and make a series.

What is your favorite genre to read?

If you go by the number of books on my kindle, historical romance wins by a landslide, Regency romance in particular. I love the fantasy aspect of many of these novels.

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

My favorite character comes from the Foreigner series by C. J. Cherryh. Bren Cameron is the only human allowed to interact with the Atevi. Humans landed on the Atevi planet after a disaster separated them from human space. He’s supposed to be writing a dictionary that will allow the two species to talk effectively to one another. A difficult task because the Atevi are wired completely differently from humans. In the first book someone tries to kill him, and the entire series (20 books) is set in motion. I love his struggle to communicate, to find the words that have meaning to humans and Atevi, to keep the delicately balanced peace between the two species.

What are you working on at the moment?

My works in progress include a novella for the next SFR Shooting Stars anthology, the Cosmic Love Cabaret. It’s the love story of Master Trey from the first Sons of Tallav book Shane: Marshal of Tallav. He was a Dom at the Opio Institute, a sex school, but now works at the Whip Hand, a BDSM club. He’s been delegated the task of explaining dominance and submission to the newly hired creative director of the Whip Hand’s cabaret.

I’m also about a third of the way into Rand: Son of Tallav, the third book in the Sons of Tallav series. It’s the story of Randolph, the owner of the Whip Hand, and best friends of Shane and Maon, characters from the first two books. He’s a sadist, so this book is taking a lot of thought.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Cosmic Love Cabaret boxed set will be available for pre-order in September and released in October.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Welcome Veronica Scott author of Danger in the Stars, a new scifi
romance.
Why did you write
this book?
When I was writing Star Cruise: Stowaway for the ‘Pets In
Space’ anthology last year, I had the premise of an empathic alien priestess
stolen from her own world and sold to an interstellar crime syndicate, forced
to do their bidding. In that novella, the story was about the woman’s escape
with the help of my ship’s crew and two pets. When I finished writing that one,
I started thinking about a sister, also held as a prisoner, but not lucky
enough to escape. How would it be for her, to be in the midst of the criminal
operations, trying to stay true to her own values, but forced to commit crimes?
Who would help her? Conor, the hero, came into my head and said, “I will.”
He’s a comple man of many secrets, but no spoilers from me!
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love science fiction romance, but I read voraciously,
everything from Regency romances to romantic suspense with Navy SEALs.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I love Nalini Singh’s Arrows in her Psy-Changeling series,
and of that group, Judd is still my favorite.
What are you working
on at the moment?
I’ve got two things going on – a paranormal novel set in
ancient Egypt and a new scifi romance. I don’t usually try to juggle telling
two stories at once but the Egyptian tale came to me one night completely
plotted and so I figured I’d better write it!
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In May I’ll be releasing a volume of three scifi romance
stories, which were previously only available in anthologies, and then of
course the two new books I talked about in the previous question will come out
in the summer.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Genre Science fiction romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Miriell, a powerful empathic priestess, has been kidnapped
from her own primitive planet along with a number of her people, and sold to
the evil Amarotu Combine, largest organized crime syndicate in the Sectors.
When she and her handler are sent to use her power to commit an assassination,
she must leave behind her own sister as hostage to ensure her compliance.
Miriell cannot ask for aid without endangering herself and others.
Despite his best efforts, Combine enforcer Conor Stewart is
entranced by Miriell, and helps her evade the worst of brutal treatment from
the rest of the mob. But Conor must keep his distance, before the lovely empath
learns that he has secrets of his own–secrets that could get them both killed.
The situation becomes dire when Conor and Miriell come to
the attention of both the Combine overlords and the deadly Mawreg, aliens who
threaten the Sectors. Can she save herself and the Mawreg’s next victims? And
will Conor help her, or remain loyal to his evil bosses?

Welcome Cynthia Sax author of Dark Thoughts, a new SciFi
Romance.
Why did you write
this book?
When I first met Kralj, the hero of Dark Thoughts, during
Chasing Mayhem, I knew I had to write his story. Kralj is Ruler of the Refuge,
a settlement that many of the most violent beings in the universe call home. He
can read minds, can control beings with his thoughts and has a very dark
beast-like side of him. He EATS his enemies. Yeah, he goes there.
I only write romance so, of course, that got me thinking, “What
type of female would love a male like that?” Dita, a pint-sized assassin,
is as unique as Kralj is. She is as strong as he is yet has a cheerfulness that
offsets his grim demeanor.
Note: Dark Thoughts is a standalone. It is not necessary to
read Chasing Mayhem first.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love all sorts of romance. Give me a happy romantic
ending! I gobble that up. I read everything from sexy Regency Dukes to
tormented half man, half machine cyborg warriors.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
In the SciFi Romance space, I really like Ral, the Zorn
warrior in Laurann Dohner’s Ral’s Woman. That was my first Laurann Dohner story
and I loved it. Ral is an awesome beastly hero. Beauty and the Beast is my
favorite romance premise. If there’s beast in the book description, the writer
has me.
What are you working
on at the moment?
I’m writing the follow up story to Dark Thoughts (releasing
in July). The hero will be Orol, Kralj’s winged second-in-command. He has been
given a solo mission. His heroine, of course, isn’t cooperating with that
mission. (grins) It is never easy for our heroes, is it?
What books will we see
from you in coming months?
Ghost Of A Machine, my next standalone cyborg romance, will
be releasing in May. He’s a severely damaged hero and has earned his happy ever
after.
The next story in the Dark Thoughts series will be releasing
in July.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Genre Sci Fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Can love redeem a monster?
The Refuge is home to some of the most violent beings in the
universe. Kralj, its leader, reigns over the remote outpost with terrifying
ease, ruthlessly squashing any rumors of rebellion, killing anyone who breaks
his rules. Primitive, deadly, powerful, he’s a monster, scarred both on his
face and his soul. He has never met a being he couldn’t control.
Until he meets her.
Dita has one mission—to kill the three targets claiming
sanctuary within the Refuge. Or so she claims. For the first time in his long
lifespan, Kralj isn’t certain of another being’s intentions. The tiny assassin
is immune to his powers, her thoughts unreadable. He can’t predict her
movements, can’t control her, can’t stop wanting her.
Dita is rare, as unique as he is, and, to keep the residents
of the Refuge safe, Kralj will have to kill her. But first, he’ll touch her,
taste her, show her how passionate the beast inside him can be.
Dark Thoughts is a STAND-ALONE SciFi Romance.
The hero might be tall, dark, and scarred but don’t be
fooled by his appearance.
He’s truly a monster.
This story is not for readers with delicate sensibilities.
