Capturing Cara: Dragon Lords of Valdier Book 2

Cara Truman is a pint-size pistol whose inquisitive nature has gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion. Her next adventure takes her further than she even expected when she ends up on a journey out of this world.

Trelon Reykill thought he had his hands full. A militant group of Curizans had captured his brother Zoran, he was busy trying to fortify the Valdier defenses against the Sarafin Warriors, and his dragon was roaring for him to find a mate. He was furious about the first, excited about the second, and pissed about the last. The last thing he expects to find on the primitive planet his brother has taken refuge on is his true mate.

Now, he has a whole new set of problems…capturing Cara long enough to make her his. His symbiosis loves her, his dragon wants her, and he can’t catch her. On top of all that, someone is trying to kill her.

His solution: Capture Cara and love her so well she will never want to escape him – if he can.

She is ready to call it quits and head back home to Wyoming where her father lives. She never expected her last flight for Boswell would end with an unplanned trip out of this world. Trisha isn’t sure at first what is real and what isn’t; all she knows is she is determined to get back to her dad no matter what it takes.

Kelan Reykill is the fourth son in the royal line of Valdier. Commander of the V’ager, one of the largest Valdier warships, he prides himself on his strict self-discipline, his ability to remain in command in any situation, and his skill at handling any challenge. That is, until he meets a stubborn human female from the primitive planet his older brother sought refuge on. Now, all he can think about is how to get the female into his bed and under his control while staying in one piece.

When she is taken from him, Kelan will track Trisha to the ends of the universe and further because he knows one thing – she is his true mate and he will do anything; kill anyone, who tries to harm her.

Interview with Laurie Roma

Author Spotlight – Laurie Roma

Laurie Roma

First, I want to thank the fabulous S.E. Smith for graciously inviting me to be a guest for her author spotlight!

I love all book genres, especially all types of romance, but there is something about sci-fi romance that captivates me and makes me want to write it. As an author—and also a screenwriter—imagining scenes in a sci-fi/futuristic story are fueled with endless possibilities. While science fiction settings can be daunting to create, I love the freedom that comes with world building from scratch, and conjuring ideas onto a page that only exist in our imaginations. The future is whatever we want it to be, and that is what made the 3013 series so fun to create!

3013: MATED (3013: The Series Book 1)

All of the books in this series are set in the future during the year 3013. The first four books are; 3013: MATED and 3013: CLAIMED, written by me, and 3013: RENEGADE and 3013: STOWAWAY, written by Susan Hayes. There are also future books coming from Kali Argent and Jenika Snow, the two other authors that are part of the series. For the authors of the 3013 series, we are able to invent new technology, create new species, and travel the universe—all while focusing on the indomitable force of true love. Each story uses the same world as a backdrop, even though each book has a different leading cast. I am so pleased to share the 3013 world with Susan, Kali and Jenika, and I hope that as the series grows, our readers will fall in love with our world as much as we enjoy writing the books.

3013: SALVATION is Skylar Aris, Arik V’Dir and Dominic Stryker’s story. Skylar was introduced in 3013: MATED, the first book of the series, although her part was very small. This story has been so much fun to work on, taking me to new planets and space stations. Their love story is not an easy one, but ultimately all the trials and tribulations they go through will make their love stronger.

3013: CLAIMED has a special place in my heart. I fell in love with the heroes, Commanders Jax Spartan and Sullivan Archer, while I wrote 3013: MATED. I knew I wanted them to have a woman who could hold her own against them, and Serra Lysander is strong enough to do just that. I love characters that are flawed, who bring their own issues into a relationship because it makes them real. With that said, I’d like to think everyone can relate to the characters in my story, despite the fantastical settings of the 3013 world. Whatever happened in the past or how many obstacles life throws in anyone’s path, everyone deserves love and a chance to find their own happily ever after. Just as I was able to give Jax, Archer and Serra their happy ending, I wish that for all of you. Happy reading, and thank you for joining me on a journey into the future…

Blurb:
As one of Earth’s greatest leaders, Commander Jax Spartan lives his life by a strict code. Dedicated and alpha to the core, he is the epitome of what every Elite solider aspires to be. Second-in-command Sullivan Archer rules by his best friend’s side, and together they form an unstoppable force that few are foolish enough to challenge. Jax and Archer have always known they’d share their chosen, but their hearts have already been claimed by the woman they’ve vowed will belong to them.

Alliance scientist Serra Lysander is a genius who has kept the planet safe with her inventions. She’s lived a sheltered life, separated from society by her brilliant mind and her overprotective mother. The only time Serra has truly ever felt accepted is with the two men that will cost her everything…

When danger leads Serra straight into the arms of Jax and Archer, they will do anything to keep her safe, even claiming her despite the fact she is off limits. With the future of the Alliance on the line, will their love and dedication be enough to save them, or will they be too late to stop the growing threat from destroying them all?

A Little Bit About Laurie:
Laurie Roma lives in Chicago and mainly writes contemporary, romantic suspense, and sci-fi romance. She has always loved immersing herself in a good book and now enjoys the pleasure of creating her own. She can usually be found tapping away on her keyboard, creating worlds for her characters while she listens to music. Of course her playlist depends on her mood…but then again, so does her writing.

An avid reader of the romance genre, nothing bothers her more than annoying characters. Seriously, who wants a happy ending for someone that pisses you off? She loves tough alpha-male heroes and strong heroines that have brains as well as beauty. Her novels are filled with both passionate romance and down and dirty lust-driven interludes, as she believes both are essential to a good love story. She loves to hear from her readers and can be reached at laurieromabooks@gmail.com.

Interview with Alanea Alder

Author Spotlight – Alanea Alder

Alanea Alder

First I want to say ‘Thank You’ to Susan for featuring me in her Author Spotlight. It’s an honor to be here. For those who don’t know me, my name is Alanea Alder and I have been a published author for little over a year. You may have seen a picture of me pop up on Susan’s blog a couple weeks ago. We met at RomCon and had a blast at the multiple paranormal themed events they hosted. I had to seek her out since many of my readers had compared my writing to hers. I soon found out that Susan and I both write strong, quirky females. I’ve had more than one reader say “Riley and Rebecca (from my Kindred of Arkadia series) need to meet and take over the world.” I have come to realize that them meeting would probably be a scary thing.

Starting at the end of this year I will be making the transition to being a full time writer. I can’t wait for the days where I can devote all of my attention to writing, especially as I have a brand new paranormal series scheduled to be released starting in September. The series is called Bewitched and Bewildered. The ladies have been bewitched and the men are bewildered.

In book one you meet our delicious Alpha Unit leader Aiden McKenzie. When his mother brings up the topic of grandchildren during a weekly sewing circle the matriarchs of the founding families seek out the witch Elder to scry to see if their sons have mates. They are shocked to discover that many of their son’s mates are out in the world and are human!

Fearing that their future human daughter in laws will end up dead before being claimed and providing them with grandchildren to spoil, they convince their own mates that something must be done. After gathering all of the warriors together in a fake award ceremony the witch Elder casts a spell to pull the men’s mates to them, whether they want it or not.

Aiden is adamant that he doesn’t need a mate and that they would only get in the way, little does he realize Fate is sending him his mate first! He meets his destined mate Meryn Evans and things go downhill from there. In the first twenty four hours she kicks, screams and knocks her bear shifting mate unconscious. They eventually discover that life before finding each other may have been good, but life afterwards is perfect, even if it involves super soaker battles and accidentally discharging hand grenades.

I am having so much fun with this series, I can’t wait for it to hit Amazon. I always tell my readers that when you write something you’re excited about, it’s like purchasing the perfect gift for someone in February and having to wait all year for Christmas. For me it’s like that for every book release. If you’ve enjoyed my rambling even a little bit don’t hesitate to find me on Facebook or follow my Amazon author page. I love meeting new people and sharing my worlds with them.

Interview with Deborah Cooke

Author Spotlight – Deborah Cooke

Deborah Cooke

Deborah is one of my favorite authors. I love her Dragonfire series. If you haven’t read any of them, you don’t know what you are missing! I was having a major fangirl moment when I first met her at RTC in Ottawa this past spring. She is an incredibly talented authors. My sister first introduced me to her books and I couldn’t get enough of them.

Bestselling and award-winning author Deborah Cooke has published over fifty novels and novellas, including historical romances, fantasy romances, fantasy novels with romantic elements, paranormal romances, contemporary romances, urban fantasy romances, time travel romances and paranormal young adult novels.

She writes as herself, Deborah Cooke, as Claire Delacroix, and has written as Claire Cross. She is nationally bestselling, #1 Kindle Bestselling, KOBO Bestselling, as well as a USA Today and New York Times’ Bestselling Author. Her Claire Delacroix medieval romance, The Beauty, was her first book to land on the New York Times List of Bestselling Books.

The Beauty

Deborah was the writer-in-residence at the Toronto Public Library in 2009, the first time TPL hosted a residency focused on the romance genre, and she was honored to receive the Romance Writers of America PRO Mentor of the Year Award in 2012. She’s a member of Romance Writers of America and of Novelists Inc. Deborah thinks a lot about publishing and writing, and also knits too much.

Kiss of Fire

One kiss can change the course of destiny… When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.
