Spotlight on #ParanormalRomance: Georgia Lyn Hunter's BREAKING FATE

Hi Everyone!

 Summer is almost here, hurray! My vacation time is coming soon, but at the moment I'm prepping ORIGINS, the third installment in the Tranquilli Vampire Series, for a late summer/early fall release. My publisher is giving the series a design makeover, too: new covers for HAVEN, DESTINY, and ORIGINS, woot! Stay tuned for a sneak peek later this summer. Meanwhile, if you'd like to read an exciting paranormal romance series featuring sexy alpha warriors and kickass women, check out my author-pal Georgia Lyn Hunter's FALLEN GUARDIANS series. A while back I posted the scoop on the first book in the series, ABSOLUTE SURRENDER, so here's a look at the second book, BREAKING FATE.

An immortal without a soul is bad enough. But when his only tether to remaining honorable is his addiction to bone-crushing pain, it makes Blaéz a dangerously loose cannon.i>

A Guardian sworn to protect mortals from supernatural evil, Blaéz straddles the edge of darkness as his needs grow. When a good deed brings him to the doorstep of a female unlike any other, one whose touch ignites emotions long lost in the hellish pits of Tartarus, he’s determined not to lose her. She belongs to him. But she’s human. Forbidden. And bringing her into his life may just destroy them both.

Darci Callahan has given up on love. But when a lethally handsome stranger suddenly appears late one night, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the captivating man with the pale, empty eyes—a man who awakens in her a desire she never believed possible. Except Blaéz brings more than unexpected passion to her life, he brings danger.

In this treacherous new world of gods and demons, Darci soon discovers a heart-shattering truth and the twisted games the gods play. Caught in the crosshairs, she’s forced to accept that, sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you have to love them enough to let them go…


(PG) Excerpt: A scene between Michael, the Guardian’s leader, and Blaéz after he’d deliberately missed a meeting. (He went after the heroine)

Michael strode inside, circled the heavy equipment, and sat across from Blaéz on a workout bench. The old tee he wore looked like the moths had had a great time feasting on it. It didn't surprise Blaéz that the archangel was still here when he rarely stayed at the castle. It was expected after Blaéz had missed the “chat” last night.

Well, he’d been busy...stalking. He couldn’t make the meet.

Michael’s eerie blue eyes settled on him. They appeared like shattered sapphires, as if he’d lived through a brutal torture. The jagged pieces never quite fit anymore, allowing a strange silvery glow through.

“What’s going on?”

Time for his grilling. With no way to escape this one-on-one with the snarly male, Blaéz said, “You know what I am. Why the questions now?”

Michael picked up a three hundred pound weight and began his arm curls. “For centuries, every few months you disappear for days at a time. I gave you space, understood you needed it. But that time in Tartarus has long passed. You’re losing all your cognitive skills, ones that make you a Guardian. Sure, you do the job, but there’s a lack of care now.”

Blaéz heard the unasked question. Maybe he should have felt guilty that he cared so little about his own health, his life. After all, Michael had given up more than his status as the leader of the archangels, lost something irreplaceable to free him--free all of them from that hellish hole. And he’d chosen to stay on as their leader. Why anyone would want to take charge of moody, temperamental fallen ex-gods, Blaéz had no idea.

Still, he could never reveal the reality of what he’d done...still did, or where he disappeared to every few months. Days he could never speak off. The truth would crush the warriors.

He functioned on autopilot in his role as a Guardian. Nothing more than an automaton. It’s why meeting Darci, and the emotions that had unfurled so briefly, yanked him by the balls.

“You're becoming self-destructive,” Michael snapped.

He was way past self-destructive.

He reeked of Hell.

Couldn’t the Arc smell it on him?

Blaéz brushed the sweat from his brow and pounded harder on the fast moving belt. A slow burn started in his thigh muscles, followed by a trickle of pain. “It’s been three and a half millennia, you think I'm a loose cannon, then take me out.”

Movies About Writers

Even before I was a writer I loved movies about writers and other creative people. I find it fascinating to see how their lives affect their work.
Here are some of my favorite movies about famous writers.

J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the most famous fantasy writers of all time. His Lord of the Rings series is a favorite of readers and moviegoers alike. Tolkien, in theatres now, follows the author through his hardships as an orphan, to his time in school—where he forms lasting friendships that change his life. It also gives us a glimpse into how his time spent fighting in World War 1 had a heavy influence on his work.

Becoming Jane is a wonderful film that stars Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen. A wonderful look at the struggles she had on her journey to being one of the most loved authors of all times.

Miss Potter is a whimsical and wonderful film that depicts the life of the beloved children’s writer Beatrix Potter. Renee Zellweger plays the lead role. Miss Potter was an eccentric young woman who defied convention and channeled her passion for nature to create books that have endured.

Do you have any favorite films about real (or fictional) writers?

And if you’re looking for a book to read, maybe you’ll check out the first book in my new sci-fi romance series. If you love sexy space mercenaries, you’ll love the Marks family.

Rescuing Rory
Marks Mercenaries, Book 1

Betrayed and sold into slavery after her father’s death, Rory Banks finds herself dancing on the Exos, a deep-space pleasure ship. So when a stranger breaks open her cage and offers her a way out, she grabs it and runs.

Kal Marks and his brothers are space mercenaries and traders who have spent the past ten years searching for their younger sister. Their hunt has led them to the Exos and to Rory, who they hope will have information. But Kal never counted on wanting Rory or on the sexual tension and scorching heat that blazes between them. This mission just got a lot more complicated.

I used to think Keanu Reeves was the worst actor alive. For the life of me, I couldn't understand how he landed the parts he did, in such major films. His accent in Bram Stoker's Dracula was absolutely dreadful. His stoic, emotionless turn in The Devil's Advocate cringe-worthy, and yet, there he was, starring in movie after movie, working with huge stars and directors. And then he became a huge star himself with hits like Speed and The Matrix franchise.

Slowly, with each film under his belt he became better and better. Perhaps he finally learned to stay away from period pieces or any role requiring an accent. In any case, I was able to watch him without wondering who he had to sleep with to get the part.

Makes no difference what I, or anyone else thinks of him as an actor because the general consensus worldwide is that he may just be the nicest person in Hollywood. The more I read about him, the more I realize what a true humanitarian he really is. He's definitely someone I'd invite over for dinner.

Here are a few of his reported amazing good deeds:

He runs a private foundation that benefits cancer research and children's hospitals.

He once drove a stranded motorist home, 50 miles out of his way.

He spent a few hours sharing food, drink, and stories with a homeless man on the streets of LA.

He often buys lunch for all the workers on the sets of his movies.

Can you imagine someone who actually admits he has "enough" money?!

Perhaps the best reason why I'm loving Mr. Reeves right now is due to a clip I watched yesterday with him as a guest on the Stephen Colbert show.

The clip is about 10 minutes long, but it's worth a look just to watch Reeves's response to Colbert's last question about what he thinks happens when we die.

Reeves doesn't attempt to explain his possibly convoluted existential views on death. Instead, he gives a one-sentence answer that resonates with us all, proving he's one of those rare celebrities who really is a simple, humble man: 

"I know that the ones who love us will miss us."

Reflecting upon 10 years in publishing #WritingCommunity

First short story, "The Wait" appeared
 in this anthology of Reunited Lovers. 
Ten years. It recently dawned upon me that my 10-year anniversary of first being published in romance fiction is coming up in June.

What an accomplishment. In that 10 years, I’ve sold more than 40 short stories, novellas and novels to 16 publishers.

On average, I’ve attended three or four conferences a year, which adds up to again more than 40, and I’ve met so many good friends, writers and readers.

To celebrate, I’ll be hosting some parties and contests, and re-releasing my very first short story sold, “The Wait,” retitled “The Vampire’s Wait,” a sexy vampire tale about a couple reuniting. But not everything is the same as it used to be. I’ve learned a lot along the way.

Thank you to everyone who’s joined me along on this journey and stay tuned for more.

Miniman turns 16!! by Jennifer Kacey

Where has the time gone???

I remember wanting him before he existed.
I remember wishing for him to be healthy and shaped like a bullet. :)
I remember feeding him in the quiet of the night in some sacred place called motherhood. The stillness where he was almost asleep again but I held him close because I truly couldn't believe how incredibly blessed I was to be his Mama-d.
I remember praying to Gd to always keep him safe.
I remember the little boy hugs and snuggles that I will NEVER forget. Those times are beautiful and inspiring and so incredibly cherished.
I remember watching him grow, marveling in how fast it was happening. So incredibly thankful I was lucky enough to witness it.
I remember hoping he would grow into a kind and gentle man with a heart of gold and the brains to change the world.

I have loved him for forever and I'm so proud to watch him grow and flourish and find his way.
Happy Happy Birthday to my, miniman!!! ♥

Decadently Yours,
Jennifer Kacey
