Since I recently revised my Fantasy Romance Novella and got a fabulous new cover, I’d thought I’d share a snippet:

Cursed – Book 1.5 Legends of Oblivion

Brock thought Celeste, his witch and love, would be safe in his Elvin city… he was wrong.

After the others slept, I laid down beside Celeste. She turned and snuggled her head under my chin. “Your language is so beautiful. Almost like music with its rhythms and melody.”

My hand traced circles up and down her back. “Emir voulan sptrea.”

“What does that mean?”

I eased her chin up and she looked into my eyes. “We are one heart.” I kissed her and relished in the sweetness of her mouth for we could do little else with company.

 

 

 

 

 

Bio Pic 300x400Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and contemporary romance suspense.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.

Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.

Romance Adventures Blog Hop – Take a ride on a Dragon #MFRW_ORG

Welcome to Romance Adventures Blog Hop

(a list of other authors to Hop to is at the bottom of this post)

My latest release: Son of Dragons – Book 2 Legends of Oblivion – a fantasy/ paranormal romance:

9781440581267

Excerpt: After playing offensive, he changed his tactics, used his strength, and pinned her and her wooden blade to a tree.

But her mouth, with its full pouting lips made him lean in. It was as though she were a scorching flame and he a moth. He smelled the scent of flat bread and berries on her breath as she exhaled.

He wet his lips in anticipation. When he lowered his head, her eyes widened. He pushed his body closer to hers and almost moaned when his lips brushed hers. They were softer than silk and roses.

Blurb: 

In a time of false peace, the dead rise as soldiers for the Warloc’s scheme. For thousands of years he has stood ready for the final battle. Though the witch and her cursed Elvin have destroyed his physical body, now with his protégé, he has honed a new way to wage war.

Shunned by her own people and weary-hearted from centuries of lost loves, Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until a prince seeks her aid.

Never has Prince Landon met a woman like Mirhana. Both beautiful and deadly, she haunts his dreams. The battle at hand becomes more enchanting than fighting to remain true to his unseen betrothed.

When a traitor emerges, new alliances are tested and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and find the . . . Son of Dragons.

My Sexy Saturday – What happens after the end?

Welcome to the 56th week of My Sexy Saturday.

What happens after The End? ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MSS54

This week, we’re wondering what happens after you say THE END. What happens to your wonderful characters that you’ve created? Do they retreat silently into the sunset? Do they get more exposure in the next book of your series? This is our thoughts on what happens to those special characters once the story appears to be over.

*********************************************************************************************************

When I wrote The Garnet Dagger Book 1 in my Legends of Oblivion series – I set out to write my first fantasy/paranormal romance novel.

Just one.

I didn’t plan on two or three, or now the current count of four. But when finished Garnet Dagger, the couple – Brock & Celeste – wouldn’t remain silent. I wrote another hundred pages, then Book 2 Son of Dragons emerged, and Book 3 War of Darkness. The hundred pages between Book 1 & 2 were cut out (per my publisher’s request and to focus on the new couple Brock’s sister, Mirhana and her love interest).

Yet, I didn’t feel right leaving Brock & Celeste where they were in Book 1. In Book 2 & 3 they are still characters, but shift to a more minor roll. So I edited, condensed, and turned  those hundred pages into Book 1.5, Cursed.

Brock: Elvin Vampire                   Celeste: Human, Witch

Here’s a snippet from Cursed

Book 1.5 Legends of Oblivion series: 

When we arrived in my Elvin city of Tamlon, I hoped to show Celeste the wonders of my land. And bask in the sun naked with her.

As the others slept, I laid down beside Celeste. She turned and snuggled her head under my chin. “Your language is so beautiful. Almost like music with its rhythms and melody.”

My hand traced circles up and down her back. “Emir voulan sptrea.”

“What does that mean?”

I eased her chin up and she looked into my eyes. “We are one heart.” I kissed her and relished in the sweetness of her mouth for we could do little else with company.
