Erica Hayes On The Appeal Of Fallen Angels In Paranormal Romance

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, OCTOBER 26, 2012 | PERMALINK

In Erica Hayes' recent release Revelation, medical examiner Morgan Sterling isn't a believer, but when she meets fallen angel Luniel, the two must work together to stop a dangerous zombie virus from taking over their city. Luniel is after the demon princes responsible for unleashing the plague and must convince Morgan that the cure for the disease is more than medical. With more winged heroes gracing the pages of out favorite paranormal romance stories than ever before, we asked the author why angels make such appealing heroes. 

They slaughter innocents. They turn cities to salt. They smite their enemies with a ready sword, stained to the elbows in the blood of unbelievers and heretics. They're the relentless, remorseless bringers of holy vengeance, and they take no prisoners. Kind of like the Terminator with feathers.

Would you ever really want to meet an angel?

5 Habits of Highly Successful Sci Fi Romance Couples

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, OCTOBER 11, 2012 | PERMALINK

Fighting aliens, conquering new planets, commanding ships and flying through the galaxy are all in a hard day's work for many sci fi romance heroes and heroines. But how do the men and women of sci fi romance find time for relationships amidst all the space trekking and futuristic adventure? Author and genre blogger Heather Massey is here today to share 5 ways sci fi romance couples make it work:

Nurturing a romance can be tough even during the best of times. But what about when aliens are attacking Earth to steal all of our natural resources? How can a couple even begin to plan a date? Or imagine the challenges of executing a simple “getting to know you” conversation when an evil galactic empire is bent on the destruction and domination of one’s whole entire world!

Evil mega corporations don’t make it any easier with their Big Brother control issues and life-threatening products. Those types of workaholic villains can put a serious dent in a couple’s ability to carve out some “we time.”

Yet science fiction romance couples always achieve a Happily Ever After or Happily For Now no matter what the obstacles. How do they accomplish such a nigh impossible goal? What’s their secret?
