Entangled in Love Valentine Guest Blog and Giveaway with Boone Brux

To celebrate Valentine’s Day several of the characters from my Bringer and the Bane series have gathered to answer the tough questions about love and relationships.

Please welcome our cast.

Rhys and Ravyn, the main characters of Shield of Fire.

Luc and Jade, the hero and heroine of Kiss of the Betrayer.

Icarus and Sha-hera, Demon Bane, and mortal enemies of the Bringers as well as each other.

This should be interesting.

First question, what was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?

Ravyn: I’d have to say it was when Rhys saved me from Vile, the Demon King. He’d been a jerk that week, so I figured he’d written our relationship off. It was a lovely surprise to wake up and find him hovering over me.

Rhys: (Nods) I was rather amazing—in a romantically heroic way.

Luc: I once had a woman name her breasts after me. The right was Luc and the left was Le Daun. It made love making very interesting. 

Jade: (Clears throat) And narcissistic I’m sure.

Luc: All right then, what was the most romantic thing anyone ever did for you?

Jade: None of your business.

Luc: Come on, give it up.

Jade: You lead off with naming breasts and expect me to share a special memory? Forget it. Can you go to someone else please?

Icarus: I don’t understand what you mean by romantic.

Sha-hera: I once had a man tell me he loved me.

Icarus: We’re you getting ready to kill him?

Sha-hera: No.

Icarus: Was he enthralled.

Sha-hera: Not even a little.
Icarus: Then you’re lying.

What would be the perfect Valentine’s Day date?

Ravyn: A day of doing nothing but lounging around Alba Haven. No fighting or training. No chores. A lovely dinner with friends followed by an evening in Rhys’s arms.

Rhys: I’m good with that.

Luc: I like Ravyn’s idea, but I’d add an abundant amount of wine and maybe some dancing girls.

Jade: (Crosses arms and pins Luc with a glare.)

Luc: And an evening spent in Jade’s arms?

Jade: Are you asking permission, because after that, my answer is no. You’re going to live a sad and lonely life if you don’t brush up on your relationship skills.

Icarus: The perfect date would be sucking six or seven souls and then having everybody leave me the bloody hell alone.

Sha-hera: I have to agree with Icarus on this. Several soul suckings, but instead stomping off to be alone, I’d engage in a hearty sparring session with my succubae. I’m always so exhilarated after absorbing souls, especially if they’re innocents. I need to work off the excess energy.

What is your favorite gift you’ve given or received?

Ravyn: Most definitely it was the dagger Rhys gave me. Sure, we were in the heat of battle, but it saved my life.

Rhys: No question, the best gift I ever received was Ravyn’s maidenhood.

Ravyn: Best gift I ever gave as well.

Luc: (Reaches to take Jade’s hand) Every moment I spend with Jade is a precious gift.

Jade: The fact that he’s willing to lie through his teeth to keep the waters calm is the best gift Luc can give me. You might have noticed that we butt heads at times. (Leans in and kisses Luc) But we’re trying.

Icarus: The best gift I’ve ever given myself was when I ripped out Sha-hera’s throat and sent her back to the Shadow World. (heavy sigh) That was a great night.

Sha-hera: The best gift I ever received was when the Demon King publically humiliated Icarus, stripping him of all authority, and put me in charge. (heavy sigh) That was a great day.

Thanks to all of you for taking the time to share your Valentine’s thoughts. It’s been very enlightening.

Protecting humans is the Bringers’ duty. Sending demons to the Shadow World is their pleasure.

In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only home she’s known, she stumbles headlong into the clutches of Icarus, a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating.

When Rhys realizes the woman he’s rescued from the Bane Demon is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death.

As the Demon King’s desire for ultimate power escalates, fathers are slated against sons, and foes are made allies. The Bane threat upon them, Rhys and Ravyn must quest to unite the last of the Bringers—and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.
