Is It True: Crimson Dreams by Margaret L Carter #RLFblog #vampire #PNR

Play Is It True with today’s guest Margaret L Carter, author of Crimson Dreams, a Vampire 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.

The summer when Heather was eighteen, her dream beast’s nightly visits warded off loneliness and swept her away in flights of ecstasy. Now, returning to the mountains to sell her dead parents’ vacation cabin, she finds her “beast” again. But he turns out to be more than a dream. She meets Devin in the flesh, apparently not a day older. His first human lover, centuries in the past, died horribly because of her devotion to him. Does he dare to expose another mortal woman to that risk?

Genre: Vampire 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.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, my “Vanishing Breed” vampire universe. Almost all the novels and stores can be read on their own.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No. I lose sleep about some things, but not writing.
you did research for this book?
Yes, some fact-checking about the setting, based on a location in the Shenandoah National Park we visit every summer.

Yes, a Golden Retriever, and of course the vampire hero. My vampires are members of another species, not supernatural undead.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, if you count fantasy and romance as two genres; no, if you consider paranormal romance a genre in its own right.
you speak more than one language?
Yes, sort of. I studied Latin for five years in high school, but it’s a case more of reading it than speaking it. I’ve also taken a little French and German.
you grew up where you live now?

you love to read?
Yes, ever since I was four years old.
you are never late?
No, but hardly ever.

Reading Dracula at the age of twelve ignited Margaret L Carter’s interest in a wide range of speculative fiction. Vampires, however, have always remained close to her heart. Her work on vampirism in literature includes Dracula: the Vampire and the Critics, The Vampire in Literature: a Critical Bibliography, and Different Blood: the Vampire as Alien. In fiction, she has written horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance. Recent publications include Crimson Dreams (vampire romance) and Legacy of Magic (sword and sorcery, in collaboration with her husband, Leslie Roy Carter). “A Walk In The Mountains,” co-written with her husband, appeared in the 2016 anthology Realms of Darkover. A sequel, “Believing,” was included in Masques of Darkover (2017).

This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Since he lost his father and his childhood at the age of ten to a witch’s curse, cynical journalist Stuart Caldwell has searched the world in his quest to find the key to his family’s centuries-old curse.

Instead of a battle to the death with the cruel enchantress he believes resides there, Stuart finds he’s the one in the firing line, and the target is his heart.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Genre: Paranormal 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
this book is part of a series?
No. It’s a standalone
you lost sleep while writing this book?
I always lose sleep. My characters love to torment me in the middle of the night and I frequently get up to write at 3:00 am.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Absolutely loads. I have a friend who uses Tarot so I took her to lunch and picked her brain. She did a reading for me and then I went away and studied tarot and witchcraft to such a huge degree.
I also did a massive amount of research on the Inner Hebrides.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Some are definitely not human. Ruth has three rather interesting black ‘cats’.
this book has more than one genre?
I think so, it’s a contemporary dark paranormal, but it’s prologue is historical.
you speak more than one language?
Unfortunately not. I can understand a certain amount of German and French, but I just never practice enough to keep my schoolgirl languages up to date.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I grew up in Africa and Germany. I travelled extensively throughout Europe when I was a child.
you love to read?
Absolutely. I never go anywhere without either my kindle or a book.
you are never late?
No. I hate to be late for anything. I’ve spent so long juggling work, children and activities that I tend to run things with military precision. Well, not so much these days now my girls have grown up…
you love pizza?
No. It certainly doesn’t love me. I always get terrible stomach pains after pizza.
you love sushi?
No. It’s not so much the fish as the bland rice. It just doesn’t appeal.
you have a pet?
I have several. A stunning Dalmatian called Skye, and handsome black Labrador called Beau. Felicity, my one-eyed kitty who’s forever in trouble and Sam our ginger queen who rules the house. We also have six chickens – soon to be more as one is brooding over four fertilized eggs.

Faye Hall Social Media

Faye Hall’s passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800’s. Each of her novels brings something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.

Each of her books tells of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder. These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland. Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.

Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their nine children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Is It True: Dark Love Rising by Danita Minnis @Danita_Minnis #RLFblog #pnrPlay Is It True with today’s guest Danita Minnis, author of Dark Love Rising, a Paranormal 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.

Former MI6 agent Xavier Quinn would say that you’re daft if you think he will stop killing for a living. But that is exactly what is about to happen. Very soon now, Quinn will start killing to stay alive. On the run after taking out the wrong man, Quinn would die a happy man if he could just live long enough to ruin the Parliament member who set him up.

Layla, a 2,000 year old vampire with a moral code, has other plans for the contract killer. When she awakens to the sound of a dark rising, she enlists Quinn to join her on a mission to save humanity from her twin sister Tamara.

But Quinn is just the kind of man that a cold-blooded killer like Tamara needs in her world. A man like Quinn, who never believed in humanity, has only one belief; self-preservation. Being a vampire sounds much better than staying human in the game of kill or be killed. Will he stay alive long enough to find out how Layla’s love can change the equation?

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Genre: Paranormal 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. Dark Love Rising is my fourth paranormal romance novel. I’m hooked on the genre!

this book is part of a series?
Not at the moment. But I’m not sure I’m done with Quinn and Layla. I may delve deeper into their relationship and globe-trotting hunt at a later date.

you lost sleep while writing this book?
I did! In the quiet darkness of my bedroom I could see Layla dancing for Queen Cleopatra, her hands weaving intricate patterns in the air.:)

you did research for this book?
Yes. When researching ancient Egypt for Layla’s background, I kept thinking what it would be like to be Queen Cleopatra’s handmaiden. It must have been a very privileged life.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Layla is upset with this question. I can see her fangs on display. She loved being human and her life at Cleopatra’s palace in Alexandria. That was before she was forced into the dark life of a vampire.

this book has more than one genre?
All of my books have more than one genre. Horror, probably from all the Twilight Zone and Hitchcock I imbibed growing up. Historical, love it, can’t help myself. Paranormal: Vamps are my latest thing but I can’t do without a few ghosts, who make an appearance in Dark Love Rising.

you speak more than one language?
I speak New Yawk.

you grew up where you live now?
Yes.

you love to read?
I LOVE to read. All the books I’ve read were research. And I didn’t even know I wanted to be an author until ten years ago. But looking back now, I probably should have known.

you are never late?
I could say something very dishonest here but let’s just say if you invite me to a party that starts at 7pm, you better tell me it starts at 5pm.

you love pizza?
Yes. But I don’t love the enhanced pear-shape it tends to give me.

you love sushi?
I could do without it, but I just think of that pear-shape and raw fish sounds pretty good!

you have a pet?
The Khan-Man is a member of my family. Yep, I’m part Husky. Love you Khan-puppy!

Is It True: The Du Lac Chronicles by Mary Anne Yarde @maryanneyarde #RLFblog #HistoricalPlay Is It True with today’s guest Mary Anne Yarde, author of The Du Lac Chronicles, a Historical 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.

“It is dangerous to become attached to a du Lac. He will break your heart, and you will not recover.” So prophesies a wizened healer to Annis, daughter of King Cerdic of Wessex. If there is truth in the old crone’s words, they come far too late for Annis, who defies father, king, and country to save the man she loves.

Alden du Lac, once king of Cerniw, has nothing. Betrayed by Cerdic, Alden’s kingdom lies in rubble, his fort razed to the ground and his brother Merton missing, presumably dead. He has only one possession left worth saving: his heart. And to the horror of his few remaining allies, he gives that to the daughter of his enemy. They see Annis, at best, as a bargaining chip to avoid war with her powerful father. At worst, they see a Saxon witch with her claws in a broken, wounded king.

Alden has one hope: When you war with one du Lac, you war with them all. His brother Budic, King of Brittany, could offer the deposed young king sanctuary—but whether he will offer the same courtesy to Annis is far less certain.

Is It True: The Wedding Date by ZrinkaJelic @Firetulip #RLFblog #romance #comedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Zrinka Jelic, author of The Wedding Date, a 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.

Nerissa (Neri) Runic, in her late thirties, single and overweight is deemed unmarriageable by her family. So she fabricated a story about dating Mark Warren, a sexy doctor and the gym owner she’s been ogling for months. She thinks none of her lies will come back to haunt her. When her mother RSVP s to the cousin’s wedding invitation on her behalf including a Plus One, Neri has no choice but to attend…or come clean and face her family’s scrutiny.

Frustrated with everyone trying to fix him up on a blind date, Mark Warren lied about dating an elusive redheaded member of his gym who caught his eye months ago. Only, he fully intends to turn this lie into truth. Once he musters enough courage to approach her, that is.

With hardly a month before his cousin’s wedding, he hopes his mother would reply to the invitation, declining his attendance. But getting out of this obligation is out of question. She expects him to reply with ‘happy to attend with a guest’.

When they find out they are forced to attend the same wedding, Mark and Neri must practice their ‘relationship’ in an effort to fool their families into thinking they are a real couple.

But the thin line between pretending and the real deal is easily crossed.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: Romantic Comedy

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 have five full length novels one novella and couple of short stories and a poem published prior to releasing this book.
this book is part of a series?
No, this is a stand-alone title.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
On occasion
you did research for this book?
True. As with every book I’ve written.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
True, there’s a dog named Tag in the book.
this book has more than one genre?
True, or could be true, it’s a romance and a comedy.
you speak more than one language?
True, my mother’s tongue is Croatian, but I’m from a costal part that has its own dialect which is very similar to Italian, but converted to our grammar. So I can converse in Italian, if you’re not in a hurry.
you grew up where you live now?
No, I grew up in the town of Zadar, in the province of Dalmatia, (yes, where the original Dalmatian dogs were bread, back then called Canis Dalmaticus and the early breeds looked different from what you see today).
you love to read?
Yes, of course. I only heard Danielle Steel say she doesn’t read when she’s working, which is always, for fear she writes something she read in another author’s book into her own.
you are never late?
Not true, or rather used to be true, before I had kids. They really have no concept of time.
you love pizza?
Yes and no, depends on the pizza.
you love sushi?
Vegetarian only, used to like fish, but not anymore.
you have a pet?
Unfortunately, no. Me and half of my and husband’s family are allergic to cats. Dogs are expensive to keep, and so are cats. I hear horror stories from my coworkers who are paying astronomical sums in veterinary bills. I don’t know how they can afford it.

Is It True: Day for Night by Stacey E Bryan @StaceyEBryan #RLFblog #Paranormal #ComedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Stacey E. Bryan, author of Day for Night, an urban paranormal 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): PG13

Day For Night is a Los Angeles-based urban paranormal comedy. Rife with pop references and scathing commentary on L.A., we follow main protagonist Rae Miller, a 38-40 something wannabe actress who has recently been voted off her reality TV show, as she languishes at a crossroads. She barely has time for self-pity, though, when the unthinkable happens: she witnesses an alien abduction in broad daylight!

Worse, Rae soon discovers that aliens aren’t the only otherworldly beings inhabiting the world, and after escaping a terrifying almost-abduction herself, she succumbs to a sexy Nosferatu’s silky assurances, becoming undead in order to up her alien Ultimate Fighting skills.

While not a strict romance, Day for Night does contain romantic elements. While Rae juggles constant male attention, only one person truly has her heart, although he refuses to have sex with her. I would say the heat level stabilizes at “smoldering” for most of the novel with one brief hot scene which, I although I used the rating PG13, the language that passes between them is definitely R.

Rae is not your usual protagonist since she’s somewhat older and also mixed race, two topics that are significant for anyone living in L.A. and/or trying to survive in The Biz. Some of her life is behind her, and she’s not quite sure how that happened. She’s also resentful that her love-life has stalled, and the dating scene is not only unfulfilling but, she discovers, downright dangerous!

The title Day for Night was taken from Truffaut’s movie title in order to reference the Hollywood environment, although “day for night” comes to mean something very different for Rae after her “Hail Mary” transformation into something…other.

After all, we all have a little bit of Rae inside us: when faced with the incomprehensible, in all likelihood, what would the average person do? Come on, be honest. They’d thank God for Jack Daniels and denial!

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?
Yes. My first published book. But then, who doesn’t have several other novels stuffed away into drawers and boxes? It’s probably best that those never see the light of day.
this book is part of a series?
Yes. It’s standalone, but I feel like I left enough elements hanging somewhat that a few folks might be thinking, “Lucy, you’ve got a lot of ‘splaining to do!”
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, I lost some sleep and pulled my hair out and went crazy sometimes.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Small facts throughout like the names of the moons of Jupiter, what the chemical make-up of chlorophyll is, the definition of antimatter. Stuff that’s good for Jeopardy!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. Some characters are definitely not human, and some of them are even yearning to be human.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. It’s an urban paranormal comedy peppered throughout with romantic, mystery, and action-adventure elements.
you speak more than one language?
Yes. I can speak passable Spanish, having studied it from age 9 throughout college. It’s a crime, though, that I’m so rusty at it.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. Born in San Francisco, grew up in the San Fernando Valley, lived in NYC for a while, then came back home. On a side note, scarily, I left NYC right before 9/11 happened.
you love to read?
Yes. Reading is almost like breathing oxygen. I need it in a way that makes me super-glad that I never started smoking or took up gambling.
you are never late?
No. I’m often late. It seems to happen when I say to myself, “Oh, I’m making good time with this,” and invariably jinx myself.
you love pizza?
Yes. I think pizza’s one of the best things ever invented in the history of Earth.
you love sushi?
No, I do not love sushi, and I never will.
you have a pet?
No. I only have the memory of my beloved black cat, Mr. Smith, who acted like a dog and followed me everywhere.

Stacey E Bryan Social Media

Stacey was a tomboy growing up, fond of gymnastics, climbing trees with Mr. Smith (her cat) and reading. While on vacation with her family when she was 13, a broken toe resulted in an inability to wear high heels when she got older (or at least not for very long), further alienating her from accepted feminine standards. After receiving her English degree at UCLA, she worked at a dude ranch, for a resume writer in Beverly Hills, in the classified ads department of The Reader, and eventually ended up captioning for the hearing impaired. She has written about tortured artists, suicide, and anorexia nervosa, but has found that light, humorous writing is a lot more fun, thus the foray into aliens and vampires in a Los Angeles setting. When she moved to New York, she found her husband in Brooklyn, and they eventually moved back to L.A. where they both write between bingeing episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and True Detective years after everyone else has already seen them.

Is It True: Ariel's Super Power of Love by Liz Adams @lizadamsbooks #RLFblog #romancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Liz Adams, author of Ariel’s Super Power of Love, an erotic superhero adventure. 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.

Fifty Shades of Wonder Woman? Better than that!

Ariel Garrison is nothing like the Wonder Woman character in comic books—no tiara, no bracelets, no magic rope, and no invisible plane—but she does have superhuman strength, a secret she must guard with her life as she spends her graduating year in St. Petersburg, Russia, in a foreign exchange program. Planning to work for the CIA, Ariel has one guiding rule: never fall in love. Doing so could give her enemies leverage and put her lover’s life in jeopardy. When the dangerous liaisons with her host family lead to irresistible temptations, will her superpowers be enough to protect the one she shouldn’t love? Or will she lose her man and her lifelong dream of pursuing justice?

WARNING: In Ariel’s Super Power of Love: The Erotic Wonders of a Super Heroic Woman, Ariel is a vengeful sleuth who pushes her own boundaries redefining what’s right and wrong in every situation, including the bedroom. One reviewer complained that there was too much sex. Ariel’s racy journey of lace and lingerie includes solo F, M/f, F/f, M/f/M/M, and a stage performance that would make Miley Cyrus blush. For 18 years and older.

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

Genre: An Erotic Superhero Adventure

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?
Nope, but it’s my first ebook that finaled in a contest.
this book is part of a series?
No, it’s a standalone (but she isn’t alone most of the book, much less stand!)
you lost sleep while writing this book?
That’s a personal question! But yes, and those were some of the best hours of lost sleep I ever enjoyed.
you did research for this book?
Tons, yes!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. She’s superhuman, and would like to be someone’s pet.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. There’s the thrill of the chase after her father’s killer, so it’s more than the erotic romance.
you speak more than one language?
No.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes.
you love to read?
Ironically, no. I got C’s in English for my horrible analysis skills, and honors in English for my creative writing skills. So I spend more time thinking about how to evoke the emotion than reading.
you are never late?
Ugh. Almost never, but when I am I hate myself for it!
you love pizza?
Yes!
you love sushi?
Meh.
you have a pet?
Yes. Though he’s technically a cat, he’s more of a cat-dog-koala. He always greets us at the door like a dog, and hangs on our shoulder like a koala.
