#Guest: Rebecca Royce and Forever: The Dragon Wars

Today my guest is Rebecca Royce and her new release, Forever: The Dragon Wars. I asked Rebecca what her best vacation ever was.

A lot of people ask me where I was when I got the first ‘call’ that I had a book publishing.  Well the answer to that is I didn’t exactly get a call, I got an e-mail, and I got it on vacation.  

In Disney World.  
That’s right. I was in the happiest place on earth, with my kids, and I got news that literally changed my life.  Even better, I wasn’t just with my kids, but with a lot of our extended family too.  My husband’s brother, his wife and, at the time, only daughter was there.  My father in law. My parents. My grandparents.  
Everyone was with me for that one perfect moment.  
The only problem? As any author will tell you when you get a contract you have EVERY intention of signing, you print it out and you sign it, quickly sending it back in.  (Unless, of course, you intend to have a lawyer read it and then you take some time to complete the contract.  In my case, my husband is a lawyer).
Anyway, I digress.  I had no ability whatsoever to print up this contract.  I hadn’t brought a printer with me.  The business center in the hotel wasn’t working.  
Imagine if you will, how I obsessed over the fact that I couldn’t get this done I’m walking through the Magic Kingdom, the sounds of Disney playing all around me, and all I can think about is that contract sitting in my Inbox.  Goofy is terrifying my two year old and all I can think about is a way to get that contract printed up. 
The bottom line? It didn’t get done for four more days when I got home, which was fine. The publisher didn’t mind and it was still months until anything would happen with that book anyway.
The best news ever getting that first contract about being published can rapidly destroy a vacation. 

About Rebecca:

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce 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.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They’ve just moved to Texas where Rebecca is discovering a new love for barbecue!

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.

Rebecca will be awarding a $50 Amazon Gift Card to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour


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? 


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.”
