Why We Love Our Paranormal Men by Rebecca Royce, Author of 'Forever: The Dragon Wars'

Today, I would like to welcome Rebecca Royce, author of 'Forever: The Dragon Wars' to the blog. She shares with us her thoughts on why we love our paranormal men. ;-) 

I was sitting on a plane recently, and I am very vocal about how much I hate to fly, and we hit some serious turbulence. We were being thrown around in the sky. Normally, this would send me into quite a tizzy. But, I was reading a really good book that featured a really hot paranormal hero. I didn’t care one bit what the airplane did as long as I got to keep reading that hero.

Why is that? Why do we love our paranormal men so much that they could actually distract me from my most hated thing in the world: air travel? Well, I think its because they are so primal. They can say and do things our husband, boyfriend, man cannot do. (They’d be arrested if they ripped the head off our boss after he hit on us…) Maybe we wish our significant other could behave that way. But there is something about a man—a vampire, a werewolf, a demon who has powers that could destroy the world and yet they are so devoted to their heroine they would never, ever harm that woman. They’d destroy the world first.

Forever: The Dragon Wars
by Rebecca Royce


Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he's lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.

Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she'd been a child at the time and he hadn't noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.

A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?


Read an excerpt:
One lone tear escaped, and she quickly batted it away. She might as not have, as he’d be able to smell her distress. Trying to be as sly as she could, she glanced over at Devin, hoping he wouldn’t notice. He stared up at the ceiling, his gaze distant and removed.

She cleared her throat. “Would you like to shift and go for a run?”

Lena couldn’t think of anything she’d like better than to escape this room. He’d brought her utter and complete pleasure and then shattered her soul.

Devin rolled over, his back facing her, his head turned away. “You go ahead. I can’t shift anymore. Haven’t been able to since I came back.”

He couldn’t shift? A strange buzzing sensation filled her mind. This was important. It had to matter that Devin had been disconnected from his Wolf.

“That’s why you can’t heal your leg? You can’t shift to fix it?”

He turned to look at her, his eyes tired. “It’s pretty disgusting, I know. Trust me, no one likes looking at it less than I do. Twisted flesh, the bone poking out from where it should be—yeah, it’s gross.”

Lena wasn’t exactly certain what was going on, but she’d somehow stepped into a minefield. She hoped she could find her way out. Fast.

“I didn’t say it was gross. I just asked if that was why it wasn’t fixed.” She rubbed her eyes. “What do the doctors say about why you can’t shift?”

“Nothing. They have nothing to say.”

  8. How did you do your research for your book?


    1. For this book, I read a lot and talked to friends who had come back from war. But its a paranormal book and unlike amazing historicals that have to be completely correct, i have the benefit of just having to remain within the confines of the world I create myself.

  9. Very interesting story! I look forward to reading it!
