The Next Best Thing Blog Hop: Reynner

By Georgia Lyn on November 7, 2012 in Blog

I’ve been tagged by my writer friend, Celia Breslin to answer some questions about my current work-in-progress as part of the The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. It’s a great way to discover new authors and books.


1-What is your working title of your book?

     Darkness Undone

2-Where did the idea come from for the book?

First off, I love Reynner, he appeared briefly in my first book, Absolute Surrender. After reading various legends of the pantheons, the one from the Sumerian pantheon caught my attention. A goddess who’d send her consort to Hell… what would stop her from sending a lover who spurned her, there too? My Machiavellian mind went to work and Darkness Undone was born.

3-What genre does your book fall under?

Paranormal romance.

4-Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Honestly, I have no idea. But it wouldn’t be fair to put set images in readers mind when they can form their own, now would it? But I’d go for unknown actors. It would be fun.

5-What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A fading realm, a warrior bound and the woman who’d save them both…

6-Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

It’s at querying status right now, so, I’ll be sending out to both agents and publishers of my genre.

7-How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Amazingly, six weeks for the rough draft.

8-What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Ah, I can’t compare my book to anyone else’s. It’s for paranormal romance lovers –the kind I want to read. 🙂 My stories have a different spin to them.

9-Who or what inspired you to write this book?

My daughter ♥ Her absolute faith in me. And of course, my hero, Reynner.

10-What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

What happens when a mortal takes on a goddess in a battle of life and death? More, it’s about choices in life. And yes love, redemption. And, of course it’s sexy hot 🙂


A fading realm, a warrior bound, and the woman who will save them both…

Bound to a vengeful goddess, immortal warrior, Reynner, has little time for the fairer sex. The last thing he wants is to be aligned with another female, even if she is the key to finding an artifact and saving his realm. But his stone-cold resistance is tested, his attraction undeniable for the feisty mortal, until she demands the one thing he cannot give her…his trust.

Eve Leighton keeps away from intimacy of any sort after an accident in her teens left her with a painful ability to see into another’s mind through physical contact. When an ice-cold warrior claims she is his world’s savior, she’s intrigued, until she dares a look into his soul and sees a man who’s been cruelly betrayed. She agrees to help him and loses her heart. But the man is an unassailable fortress. With quiet determination, she chips away his barriers and a passion darker than night pulls them under.

As his enemies closes in on the hunt for the artifact, Reynner must overcome his own personal demons as battles are fought to claim the woman he loves or lose her to a vicious goddess. And Eve has to face her own mortality and fight for a love of a lifetime.

SNIPPET taken after Eve tends Reynner (he’d been wounded) she checks on him and unintentionally ‘sees’ something of his past he never wanted her to.

‘“What the hell did you do?” Reynner’s snarl vibrated off the walls and snagged at her fading thoughts. The pain, the shock, became too much for her fragile mind to process. Her breath escaping in tiny gasps as she lay across the bed. Eve struggled to get her mouth working. To form coherent words and push through the thick fog hovering, waiting to haul her into a void.
“I’m so s-sorry.” Her voice broke, unable to see past the horror.
“You were in my mind—you were in my fucking mind!”
“Don’t lie—I felt you!”
Terrified, Eve managed to roll off the bed, before he grabbed her. She fell to the floor and landed on her bottom, pain jarring up her spine.
Her bones jarred, pain spiked through her spine at the impact, dissipating the edges of darkness. “I didn’t mean to, it was an accident.”

Naked, he leaped over the bed. She scooted back.

Like a wild animal with death in his eyes, he crouched in front of her. Tears crowded hers. Eve tried to find the man she knew, but nothing of him remained in his tortured gaze.’

I’ll leave you with that, and back to my writing cave 🙂

have a great day.
