Blog Tour: Forever Fae by L.P. Dover!

Hey guys! So I have here an interview which I did with the fabulous L.P. Dover for her new book Forever Fae! I hope you enjoy the interview!

To start us off is there anything you'd love to tell us about yourself?

Well, let’s see......I’m 31 years old and I live in North Carolina with my darling husband and two daughters. I love to read and of course you know that writing is my passion. I went to college and pursued a dental career, and I worked in the dental field for 8 years before deciding to stay at home with my youngest daughter. I long to live in the NC mountains and one day I will have me a quaint little cabin there. I might see if my hubby can throw in a little farm in there so I can have me some chickens, cows, and horses. I have never been a country girl, but hey....I might as well try at some point. J

How did you come up with the idea to write Forever Fae?

I have always been fascinated with the faerie world. I fell in love with Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series, the Faeriewalker series by Jenna Black, and the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton. I knew that if I ever wrote anything it would be about the fae. I don’t really know how I came up with Forever Fae....lol. I just sat in my favorite chair one day with a notebook and pen in my hand and I just began writing. The story just came to my mind and I let it flow right onto the paper.

Who is your favorite character and why?

Oh wow....let’s see. I love all of my characters, but I think my favorite would have to be Merrick. He’s the hot best friend of Princess Calista and he also vies for her heart. I love his smart ass ways, and did I forget to mention that he’s hot...lol. He’s loyal and very protective of Calista which I find very endearing in a man.

Who designed your beautiful cover?

The awesome Lindsay Anne Kendal Graphics Design had designed my gorgeous cover. She is amazing at her work and has also designed my second book cover as well. She is very thorough and will work with anyone until they are satisfied with the work.

When did you start writing?

I had always written growing up by writing in journals and such. I also wrote a ton of poetry and had also written a poem that was used in my sister’s wedding. I remember feeling so embarrassed about it too....lol. As far as my novels I had only started working on them this year.

Is there any particular author/book that helped influence you into being an author?

Yes, there is one specific author that pushed me to start writing. Lucy Swing can take the credit for it J I have become good friends with her and her encouragement was what gave me the inspiration to continue on with my dream of writing. I will never forget it.

What book are you currently writing and could you maybe tell us a little bit about that book please!

Right now I am working on a short story that will be combined with another author’s short story. This is a new project that just came to our attention and we are both excited to publish our stories together. I will tell you this though…..my part of the book is about a VERY HOT incubus.
Could you maybe give us a little teaser from Forever Fae please!

Okay, here you go….

I saw you with Merrick and I know you care about him, but I need to know what you feel for me. If what I saw in the vision is real, we have a deeper connection than I could have ever imagined,” he says softly while rolling wisps of my hair through his fingers.

“Ryder, I don’t know how or why it is happening so fast, but my heart does feel like it belongs to you. When I saw you tonight, I felt it. The connection is there and I see it now, but what if it isn’t real?” I pull away from him to walk closer to the crystal blue water of the lake.
He looks at me bewildered.
“Why wouldn’t it be real? It feels real to me,” he says while making his way toward me. He’s coming closer to me and all I want to do is run into his arms and feel his body surround mine. That’s what my body is telling me, but how do I find out if that’s what my heart truly feels?
I shrug and say flatly, “I just think we might feel this way because of the prophecy.” He wraps me in his arms again and tilts my chin up to look in his eyes. He is worried and I can see the tension around the lines of his mouth.
He shakes his head and lets out an exasperated breath.
“Why are you trying to fight this, Calista? Whatever we feel is between me and you. No prophecy or any amount of magic is going to change the way I feel in my heart.” He cups my face with both hands and brings his face closer to mine. Our foreheads are touching.
He breathes lightly in my face and whispers softly, “My heart tells me this is real, and if we can’t believe in our own hearts, then what can we believe in?”

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.



Author bio:

I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina with my husband and two beautiful girls.I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.
