The Romance Lives Forever Reader Group allows you to sample my work and fall in love with my characters and their worlds. When you join, you immediately get Bro, the Story Behind the Antonello Brothers. The book comes in epub, mobi, or PDF format. The next day, you’ll get the Tarthian Tour Company Top Stops — the important planets in the Tarthian Empire, plus Thirty Days of Chaos: Illustrated Quotes by Pietas. The most powerful of all the immortal Ultras, Pietas rules his people with an iron fist and a heart of stone. Or so he wants you to believe. Meet the man behind the myths in Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas. Because I value my privacy, I protect yours. I don’t share your email with anyone. You can unsubscribe at any time.
Those characters in the header include unstoppable heroes from my Tarthian Empire series. (Original art by Jamin Allen) L to R: Pietas, Six, Wulf, Alitus, Jawk, Luc, Izzorah, Senth, and Khyff.
The immortal Pietas rules as king of the Sempervians. He considers Six his finest friend – even though he’s human and therefore mortal. Wulf, Alitus and Jawk — the Chosen who support the Sempervians — follow. Pietas calls Luc his right hand. Surrender Love and Surrender Trust, a sweet scifi series coming soon, will feature Luc and Izzorah. Senth and Khyff are half-brothers. Senth is Luc’s adopted son. Everyone shown has a relationship to Luc, and even if they are not aware of it, to Pietas.
