Immortal Rapture Series #MustReads #ParanormalRomance @lilian3roberts

Immortal Rapture Series #MustReads #ParanormalRomance @lilian3roberts

Originally published via ExpatsPost.com, October 14, 2014

Lilian Roberts joined us on Expats a few weeks ago with her Arielle Immortal Journey, Book 5 in The Immortal Rapture Series. Today, I would like to welcome her back so that she can share some insights into the series as she releases Book 6 in the series – Arielle Immortal Fury. As October fades into November, what better time to curl up with a good fantasy, romance novel, right? Her timing is perfect! Lilian lives in Atlanta and, even with her hectic schedule, she took the time to have a cup of coffee and answer a few of my questions. Let’s take a look into the creative process this best selling romance author.

Lilian Roberts


The Writing Process:

Introduce yourself to our readers in 100 words or less.

I am a corporate engineer, wife and mother. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and my golden retriever. I am an avid reader and love to read novels that feature characters draped in passion, mystery, and adventure. I am especially fascinated with the concept of immortality.

How long have you been a published author?

4 years

Do you write in one particular genre, or explore a variety of stories?

I write Paranormal / Romance

Where do you get the ideas for your stories?

I love romance and I create a character or two and from there a story develops.

What is your writing process?

I write very late at night while everyone is asleep. I find that time to be the most creative one for me.

How much/often do you write?

Every day a page or two.

Do you have readers or betas who critique your work before you submit for publication?

I have an editor a proofreader and my publicist.

Why do or why don’t you think this is important?

It is important to make sure your book is clean of errors before it is published. The readers are very smart and they catch everything that everyone else missed.

Arielle Immortal Fury, Book 6
The Immortal Rapture Series


The Road to Publication:

How long have you been openly pursuing writing as a career?

5 years

Do you have an agent?

Yes I have an agent

If yes, how did you go about finding them?

It was totally coincidental. We met on Facebook and became friends. She is an author as well and my book manager.

Everything happens on social media, doen’t it? What do you perceive as the benefits to having an agent?

It is hard for an author to write and also worry about marketing their book. An agent has been in the marketing game for a long time and they know they best ways to make sure that your book is out there and your sales are increasing as the time goes by.

Your new release, Book 6, is part of a fantastic romantic fantasy series, The Immortal Rapture Series. Please tell us a bit about these books

It is a romantic fantasy adventure series for young adults and older. It has everything you could imagine that might enthrall a reader. That includes passion and romance, stunning trappings of glamour and wealth, as well fabulous settings, both contemporary and historical. There’s plenty of intrigue, ancient secrets, super powers, a cast of beautiful people and other interesting characters. At the center of the story, is Arielle, a very special college coed facing fantastical revelations at every turn. At her side is her perfect man, Sebastian, who is no ordinary prince charming. In tart, that’s because he’s immortal, but handsome and rich and a nice guy, too. They can’t get enough of each other, caught up in a love that captivates: body, mind and soul. Part of a close-knit group of friends, many of them have been through a lot together through out the books. Those friendships are almost as integral to the story as the love affair between Arielle and Sebastian. That’s a good thing, too, since there are mysterious forces aligning against them, ruthless villains, and plots afoot.

Are you self-published or do you have a traditional publisher?

I have a contract with a publishing company out of Seattle Washington “Booktrope”

Why did you make that choice?

It was very hard to handle a series of 8 books on my own. Plus the expenses were enormous. Editors, proofreaders, blurb writers, formatting company, and marketing. Booktrope has assigned a team of people that make sure my books are edited, proofread, formatted and marketed correctly. They make sure my covers are designed by expert designers to make the book more appealing. Booktrope has made my life a lot easier and I now can concentrate in writing.

If you could have any job (besides being a writer), what profession would you choose?

From a young girl I wanted to be an engineer and I became that before I started to write and became a published author.

What’s next for Author Lilian Roberts?

I am working on a historical Romance about the British Regency.

Anything you’d like to add or that we should know about you?

Writing has become a passion larger than I thought it could ever be.

Thank you Lilian. Your journey into publishing is truly inspiring. I love the way you have worked to develop your writing, and along the way so many magical meetings and events have coincided. Your story is full of magic and synchronicity. Here’s the blurb for Arielle Immortal Fury, her latest release.

Arielle Immortal Fury

A memory of love…

On her return to the present from a time-travel journey to sixteenth-century Calais, France, college co-ed Arielle Lloyd anticipates a joyful welcome from her immortal fiancé, Sebastian Gaulle. She is stunned to discover that he doesn’t remember their time together there and wonders, has she lost him forever?

Danger from afar…

As Sebastian tries to shake loose his disturbing memories and solve the enigma of Arielle’s haunting eyes, the Russian Mafia ups the stakes in their deadly game to steal crucial documents from his company. Then an envelope arrives with photos of Arielle. The message is clear: if Sebastian fails to meet their demands, his love will pay the price with her life.

A love across all time…

Sebastian and his associates join forces with Interpol in a race to thwart the Russians’ plans. In the global battle, the Russians have made a serious mistake. They have threatened the beloved of an indestructible immortal, a woman Sebastian only now realizes he has loved across the centuries.

BLURB
An invitation to magic…
As the love story between engineering student Arielle Lloyd and her Immortal fiancé, the striking Sebastian Gaulle, continues, Arielle is invited to attend a meeting of the secret Veneti Society. She readily accepts as she must learn to use her powerful amulet and mystical book of spells to protect herself from constant danger.
Dangerous mortals…
Sebastian’s company is about to introduce advanced security systems to protect their global operations, but the head of Russian intelligence is determined to infiltrate the company and use it to his own ends. The Russians failed once, but they’ve vowed to stop at nothing this time, even if it means the destruction of all that Sebastian loves.
A journey to the past…
As a gift from her Immortal friend Eva, Arielle is whisked back in time to the 16th century to a glittering ball in Calais. There, she meets Sebastian as a mortal man, before he was given immortality. Although he does not recognize her, their souls connect instantly. But a jealous Immortal wants to possess Arielle as his own and vows to hunt her through eternity — and he’s not the only one. With this new evil threatening her, Arielle’s ancient amulet and her powerful friends may not be enough to keep her safe.”
EXCERPT
The  bodice  was  a  burgundy  color  with  a  soft  velvet  crimson  skirt   that   hugged   her   body   stunningly.   It   was   embroidered   all   over   with   beautiful  stones  and  pearls.  Arielle’s  jaw  dropped  in  astonishment.   Gabrielle  looked  in  the  mirror  and  covered  her  mouth  with her  hand   trying  to  hold  back  a  cry  of  exhilaration.
“Oh…   my…   you   look   amazing!”   Arielle   exclaimed,   unable   to   believe   her   eyes.   Gabrielle   kept   that   happy   smile   on   her   face   as   she   walked  back  and  forth  a  couple  times,  and  then  moved  in  front  of  the   full-­length   mirror.   They   heard   her   let   out   a   cry of   joy   while   Arielle   watched  her  bounce  back  towards  them.
“All   right,   Arielle,   you   are   next,”   Eva’s   voice   startled   her.   Eva   walked   in   front   of   her   with   a   soft   smile.   She   took   a   quick   glimpse   at   Arielle’?s   drawing   and   closed   her   eyes.   The   gown   appeared   out   of   nowhere.   Arielle   had   an   extraordinary   feeling   as   she   stood   in   the   middle   of   the   room   in   the   magical   dress.   It   looked   more   amazing   than   what   she   had   drawn.   She   heard   Gabrielle   and   Eva   cry   out   in   astonishment,   and   she   knew   that   her   choice   was   exquisite.   She   walked   over  to  the full-­length  mirror  and  let  out  a  cry  of  bliss.  The  beauty  of   the   girl  that   looked  back   at   her   was  beyond   anything  she   had   pictured   in  her  mind.
The   dress   was   magnificent.   The   bodice   was   made   out   of   light   blue   brocade   that   accentuated   the   color   of   Arielle’s   eyes.   It   hugged   her   body   tightly,   emphasizing   her   figure.   The   neck   was   a   V-­shape   cut   low   and   decorated   with   beautiful   sapphire   stones   along   the   edges.  Arielle  thought  it  complemented  her  alabaster  skin.  The  skirt   was  made  out  of  several  yards  of  dark  blue velvet  that  hung  open  in   the   front   disclosing   another   beautiful   light   blue   silk   skirt   embroidered   with   pearls.   Beautiful   jewels   lined   the   edges   of   the   velvet   skirt.   The   sleeves  flowed  down  her  arms,  giving  the  dress  a  graceful  look.
Eva   turned   her   immortal   powers   onto   herself   next.   When   she   was   finished  she  looked  more  like  a  porcelain  doll  than  a  real person.
“Eva,  you  look  fantastic!”  Arielle  exclaimed.  “I  don’t  think  I  have   ever  seen  a  person  more  beautiful  that  you.”
Eva   chuckled,   extremely   pleased.   “Oh,   it’s   just   my   immortal   looks,”   she  said,  waving  her  hand  dismissively.  “But,  look  at  the two  of  you!”  she   added,   pointing   at   Arielle   and   Gabrielle.   “You   both   look   unbelievably   gorgeous.”

Cafe In The Park 18+ NSFW

Thank you for inviting me to your blog today Hunter, it’s lovely to be here.
I’m talking about my muse today. I’ve been asked countless times about what has inspired a story or about my muse. I always have some unexpected (for me) inspiration behind a story. Even a tiny thing can seed a story for me. I hesitate to name my muse as any one thing. Certainly, my muses are far away from the traditional ancient goddesses of the arts. It’s rare for me to have the same muse for two stories. Unless I have the god of dreams whispering in my ear and simply don’t know it, I attribute my stories to experiences, scenes, glimpses of other people’s lives, emotions, sometimes pictures, once or twice, a photograph.
Behind my love stories is always the thread of hope that somewhere in the world real love exists for some people. I always write happy endings. I simply have to. It usually just happens in my story as I write, but if it didn’t I’m sure I would contrive it.
I have a new release book from Siren Publishing, Café in the Park. It’s an erotic romance, which means the bedroom door is open in the love scenes. We get to experience the passion, lust and love each character has for the other. What inspired Café in the Park?
Over the summer, I noticed an upsurge of advertisements for dating agencies. After seeing a few for a leading matching site, I found myself grinning at the models used in the visuals for the person a client might meet. Then the idea for a story of a lonely woman who joins a dating site and actually meets her dream man seeded, but I couldn’t let him be a normal man, because I don’t really believe in the reality of internet or agency dating. Maybe I’ve only heard the horror stories. (smiles) The photos on the dating sites simply didn’t match with the models used in their advertisements and then I thought what if behind one of those photos lay a gorgeous man who had to hide his appearance for some reason?
Chris Donato, my hero, in Café in the Park, had to be different, a fantasy, a paranormal character, so that I could use the idea for a story at all.
I’ve always been interested in ancient history and know a few legends that have grown up around sacred sites across the world. I find Roman history fascinating. I combined a legend I know about a lost Roman legion and a legend from Native Americans to form the basis for why Chris Donato is what he is. The premise of his absolute origins still remains vague within the story because he must retain an air of mystery for me, so let’s just say he is ancient.
I always fall in love with my characters. Chris, and Emily, my heroine, are very loveable. Emily is so recognizable, a pretty, intelligent woman, longing for love and yet without the environment to find it. Chris is the quintessential paranormal hero, a mystery, an enigma, and yet desperate for love because of his life experience. He’s also a modern hero, a singer and guitar player in a rock band, and a competent businessperson. He’s sexy, kind, gorgeous, adorable, and something else…
 Read an excerpt 18+ NSFW
Emily came with a long, low moan, gasping and writhing on his tongue and fingers.
His eyes closed, he breathed in her scent. His cock jerked and grew as she groaned and thrust. This was more than he’d ever felt. It was bliss to hear and feel her come. He thrust his hard cock on the soft side of the sofa cushion.
Her hands teased at his ears as she reached down to hold his head.
Instinctively he knew she wanted to kiss him.
He let go of her clit regretfully and pulled his fingers from the lovely surround of her pussy. He kissed lovingly up her stomach to her mouth. His hand cupping a breast to soak up the softness there, he kissed her between whispers. “You’re so gorgeous and so sexy. I could make love to you forever. Never leave this place, never stop.”
Emily reached one hand to his cock. She shuffled to reach his balls with the other. She traced there, her fingertips moving over his skin.
Streams of sensation sent his hips thrusting in little involuntary jerks.
She tightened her grip on his cock.
“You’re hard again. That’s so yummy. Stand up. Let me suck you. I want to.”
Chris didn’t think he could stand up. His legs felt like jelly, but the lure of having her mouth on his cock was irresistible. He pulled away from her and stood.
She shifted to sit on the edge of the sofa. She brought him between her thighs to kiss the head of his cock.
That alone nearly made him come.
She licked along the shaft of his cock, held him, and sucked at the head as if he was a lollipop.
He moved to her sucks, his hands fisting in her hair. The feel of her lips going up and down his cock and the way she took most of his cock into her mouth made him sweat. He tried not to thrust into her mouth, tried not to grip her head hard. Sweat trickled down his back between his shoulders and filmed on his chest muscles.
She sucked deep until he growled with each one and then his orgasm hit him. It threw him forward into her mouth. The hot shooting cum filled her mouth and scorched the lower shaft of his cock as she held his ass and let him thrust into her mouth.
When the orgasm finished, the need to fall at her feet was so strong he bent to her ear.
“Emily, let’s lie down. I want to hold you close.”
She took his cock from her mouth. Kissed the head and stood.
“We’ll go to bed. Let’s go to bed.” She pulled him along by the hand to her bedroom.
Chris felt so spent, and so loved, with a soft sound of satisfaction, he let her lead him. When they were in her bedroom, he picked her up and laid her on the quilt. He kissed her tenderly before he lay down beside her and gathered her against his body possessively. She was his love now. He would never let her go.
