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.

Stressing Orol

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Age: Many, MANY human lifespans
Birthplace: In a Humanoid Alliance laboratory
Profession: Genetically designed to kill
Ethnicity: Half Human, Half Oberon Flying Death
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Modified Humanoid

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Orol is surrounded by the top warriors in the universe. There’s a melee. The last being standing wins. They’re given their choice of any blade. Orol chooses to use his talons.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
Orol LOVES to fight and is excited to be at this party. His talons are extended. His wings are spread. He will keep his feet on the floor to give the other party-goers a chance.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He searches out beings to fight, giving each of them a rough time before engaging.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
He seldom drinks and never when he’s fighting.
How much drink is his usual?
During breaks,he sips any beverage he’s given, taunting other party-goers.
The hero 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?
Orol goes there to avoid Scales, a friend of his. He has agreed to never fight him.
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He prefers to fight alone but will compete with friends for the most kills.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
This party is one big fight and Orol is right in the middle of it.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He’s not leaving until he wants to leave and he won’t want to leave until all of the fighting is done.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
When the fighting is done, he’s leaving.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
Orol will make a joke and walk away.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
Orol will fly to investigate.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
Protect.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
Stand between the abuser and his victim, using his body to shield the victim.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Orol calls Balvan or one of his other brethren for help. If help doesn’t come, well, he’s a warrior. All warriors eventually die in battle. He has accepted that.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does he do?
He makes jokes and acts as though there was never any conflict between them.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
As long as the situation won’t kill anyone, he lets the being bungle things. Sometimes you need to fall on your a$$ to learn how to stand on your feet.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
He has been through worse…. And, unfortunately, he has.
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
Kralj is the closest Orol has to a mentor.
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Every situation is survivable.

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.

Blurb

Belinda “Bee” Carter is a good girl; at least, that’s
what she tells herself. And a good girl deserves a nice guy—just like the gorgeous
and moody billionaire Nicolas Rainer. He is everything she wants in a man.
Or so she thinks, until she takes a look through her telescope
and sees a naked, tattooed man on the balcony across the courtyard. Hawke is mysterious,
the bad boy she knows will bring only heartbreak. He has been watching her, and
that makes him all the more enticing.
But when a mysterious and anonymous text message dares her to
do something bad, she must decide if she is really the good girl she has always
claimed to be, or if she’s willing to risk everything for her secret fantasy of
being watched.
Is her mystery man the reclusive billionaire with a wild side
or the darkly dangerous bad boy?
