Guest Post & Giveaway: Rebecca Royce - LOVE BEYOND LOYALTY
Hi Everyone. Please help me welcome Rebecca Royce back to AsianCocoa's Secret Garden today! Rebecca's new novel Love Beyond Loyalty was released in January. Since tomorrow is Valentine's Day, Rebecca is going to tell us about one of her romantic Valentine's moments.
I think one of the most romantic Valentine’s Days that I can remember is when I was living in New Orleans, with my husband. We weren’t quite married yet so I suppose it would be better to call him, at that point, my fiancé. But just for the record, he did become my husband.
He took me to dinner in a restaurant that had, at one time, been a church. They hadn’t done much to the ambience of the place. You really felt like you were eating in a very old church. It was a really neat experience because I’m not used to eating dinner in such an unusual setting.
We ordered a bottle of white wine and the food was so good. When we are out and see that bottle of wine on the menu now, we order it for the memories. This might not seem like much of a Valentine’s memory. I mean, its kind of typical, right? We went to dinner. What’s the big deal?
Well, well were young. We didn’t do this type of thing very often because we couldn’t have afforded to. But, that night we did. And I remember just feeling so lucky to be with him and that we had our entire lives in front of us. The whole evening, well…it still makes me sigh.
What is your favorite Valentine’s memory?
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 live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.
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.
