I’d like to welcome my guest today Rebecca Royce. As a teenager, Rebecca would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.
She’s in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She’s been told she’s a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In Rebecca Royce’s world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
1. Give us an elevator pitch for your story, Love Beyond Loyalty
Okay, I’m so excited to tell you about my new story! I think you’re going to love it. It’s the third book in a series called The Outsiders and in this book, one of the characters who has been walking the line between good and bad finally makes a decision. The war becomes intense and the romance is hot. Interested?
(Did I do that right? LOL. Never done an elevator pitch before)
2. Your hero isn’t keen on following rules. Are you a rule follower?
I am. I really get nervous and upset if I think I’ve done something wrong. It is a rare day that I become a rebel.
3. Your heroine can communicate with animals. What made you decide on this ability for your heroine?
I always wish I could talk to my pets. Honestly. And, to a certain extent, the characters tell me about themselves, not the other way around.
4. What characteristics do you think are important for a hero to possess and why?
Strength, loyalty, honor. A strong set of shoulders and a big heart.
5. Why do you write romance?
I love happy endings.
6. What is the best advice you’ve ever received as a writer?
Treat it like your job. Work at it, keep improving.
7. What are you working on right now?
I am writing the third book in my Young Adult series.
And now, a question for you from Rebecca – What is one supernatural creature you don’t think has been used enough as a romance hero?

Gabriel Ward has no problem with the fact that he’s an Outsider. Hell, he’s always known he was different. What he takes issue with is the idea he has to follow any destiny at all. He’s taken care of himself-and others-since birth. There’s no way he has to start following rules now.
Loraine Peacock can speak to animals. Other than that she thinks she’s just a regular woman making her way in the world. She figures its not that weird. Many people have unusual abilities.
But when Gabriel and Loraine are forced together by a destiny he denies and she is ignorant of, they will both finally have to accept their Outsider legacy and help the others in their quest to defeat the ultimate evil—a demon bent on world destruction. That is, if they can both survive to find their way to the most important part of their destiny: love.
“Are you going to tell me what happened to you? You just stood there and let that wave slam into you. I thought you were dead but Futon knew you were alive.”
Futon? He regarded the dog. A medium sized border collie with black spots stared back at him. His heart sped up. He‘d heard that name for a dog before. In fact, it was the same damn dog.
“I know you.” He pointed at the creature. “But the last time I saw you was with an old woman on Magazine Street in New Orleans.”
Gabriel had been working for a shady lingerie storeowner on the bad side of Magazine Street at the time. Trying to find out what Sebastian wanted with the man, he would later uncover that the demon had employed Trent, the owner, to kill virgins by bleeding them to death. Gabriel still didn‘t fully understand how it benefited Sebastian and he wasn‘t sure he ever would. On his second day, he‘d been hassled by an old woman on the street who‘d told him Sebastian was in New Jersey and that he needed to hurry up and get there.
She‘d spoken of fate and a lot of mumbo-jumbo he hadn‘t understood. It had turned out that she was right and he‘d high-tailed it off to New Jersey to help stop Sebastian‘s assault on the Outsiders. The woman had been with Futon.
The woman shook her head. “There are lots of border collies around this area. You must have seen a different one because Futon never leaves me.”
