Guest Post with L.P. Dover, author of Forever Fae and Betrayals of Spring

Forever Fae Synopsis:
He leans down, lips parted, and then our lips connect... We didn’t know that this one kiss has FOREVER changed the Land of the Fae.
According to the Prophecy proclaimed many years ago, Princess Calista of the Summer Court is destined to change the Land of the Fae from the evil determined to destroy it. Her powers are phenomenal, and she secretly trains for battle with her handsome warrior friend, Merrick, who unbeknownst to her protects her heart as well, in hopes of keeping it for himself. At least, until the seductive Prince Ryder attends the Guardian Ceremony and instantly sends a fire burning through her veins and a connection so deep they both discover a love above anything imaginable.
No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does. He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae.
Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul? Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be.

Betrayals of Spring Synopsis:
The smell of rain vastly approaches as we are lying on the ground in a sea of flowers. They surround our bodies while the fresh Spring wind caresses our skin with its soft, gentle touch. Combined as one, we stare into each other’s eyes as we bask in the pleasure of our love and OUR land.

The Land of the Fae has flourished bringing a new beginning and a new court, the Fall Court. Five years have passed since then along with the dreaded day that Meliantha, Summer Court Princess and one of the powerful Four, was betrayed and broken-hearted by the sexy and alluring Winter Prince, Kalen. Spurned by the man she loves, Meliantha has turned and fallen into the arms of the fierce and handsome warrior, Finn, who understands she can never love him, but wants more than anything to mend her broken heart.
The Winter Solstice Ball is approaching, meaning Meliantha will have to face the Winter Prince and make it out of there with her heart intact. But what does she do when Prince Kalen acts as if nothing ever happened and seems more in love with her than ever before?

The dark sorcerer has planned his twisted game of lies and deceit well, and has enjoyed making himself a player without anyone’s knowledge. The game is almost over and the players are exactly where they are needed to be. Will Meliantha figure out his twisted game and save all the players? Or will the dark sorcerer once again obtain the power of the Four and take everything away from her…..even her one true love?

Topic: Stories about any book conversations or events based on things
that happened in real life. 

Forever Fae:
There were a few instances in Forever Fae that are actually some of my own favorites and dreams. Calista loves Italian food, spaghetti being her favorite. I mention it a couple of times in the book, not to mention Ryder is an expert with cooking it as well. In my life with my husband, he HATES my spaghetti. Needless to say, when we cook it, it has to be his way. Except, if I know he’s not going to be home for dinner I’ll make it my way.

Another thing about Forever Fae is that I love the fall time. I knew I wanted to base it with the fall. At the end, during the marriage bond, I depicted the ceremony the way I had my wedding, minus all of the magic that took place. I always wanted to get married in the fall time and I made sure to do that. My husband and I had ours, surrounded by our families, with the fall leaves floating around us as the wind blew them off the trees. It was beautiful, but my dream wedding would have been like the one in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves when Robin married Marion. Now that would’ve been epic.

Xylia, is another character that I kind of base myself on. She has this little fetish of coloring her hair all sorts of colors. I’ve had my fair share of doing this to myself. There was even a time when a botched color job left my whole head pink. It was very interesting to say the least.

Betrayals of Spring:
When Meliantha went to the Winter Solstice Ball she ended up wearing a dress that would definitely make her stand out amongst everyone else. I did the same thing when I went to the ninth grade prom many years ago. To be honest, I didn’t do it on purpose, but I found this dress that I really loved. Everyone else ended up wearing black and white while I strolled in wearing my bright red one. Needless to say, I stood out like a sore thumb.

Meliantha’s purple eyes are a secret desire of mine. I’m a freak about eye color, so I guess that’s why I make a big deal about everyone’s eyes.

I’m obsessed with wolves, werewolves, and shifters. I didn’t know how wolves would fit in with the whole faerie world, but I made sure to at least add them in anyway.

Okay, here’s another instance revolving around food. One of Meliantha’s favorite foods is pumpkin bread. I am in love with pumpkin bread, and most of the time I make it myself. Sometimes, however, I’ll get me some pumpkin muffies from Panera.

Meliantha’s best friend reminds me so much of my best friend growing up. Her name is Melissa, but in the book I called my character Elissa. She’s not a big reader so I don’t have to worry about her ever figuring it out.
