Calisa Rhose presents ~ For love of a tale by Juli D. Revezzo
It’s not Tuesday, but my Tuesday guest asked for today while on tour promoting her first Wild Rose Press book. Who am I to turn down a favorite guest? So with nothing more from me, here’s Juli D. Revezzo sharing Passion’s Sacred Dance!
By Juli D. Revezzo
Like many writers I have been a storyteller from a young age. Everything had a dash of fantasy here, a little bit of rhyme and music there, but in all forms, there was always a story in my mind—and in my house, the Hobbit, the Classics, modern day romance it was all there, even storytelling songwriters.
In the intervening years a burning love for the Arthurian tales always existed. When I think of a hero, those are the men (and women) I think of. So it seemed second nature when I sat down to write Passion’s Sacred Dance, my debut paranormal romance novel for The Wild Rose Press, that I might take my cue from the stories I’ve loved forever. These are stories that have stayed with us from the moment they were spoken by traveling minstrels in the fire-lit halls of the Middle Ages. Yes, love works into it too. If we didn’t love what we do, as writers, do you think we’d stay up ‘til all hours, agonizing about finding just the right word?
The lifelong love of these heroic tales and honorable warriors and maidens fair soon turned to an interest in the Celtic myths and Legends. I blame that for the beginnings of what became Passion’s Sacred Dance. The story of a battle between the Tuatha dé Danann and their old enemy Balor of the Evil Eye tied up in knots in my mind with the current Urban Fantasies and paranormal romances I was reading at the time, and out walked a woman in a business suit, with a sword-wielding knight in jeans behind her. “Do we have a story for you!”
What could I do but what I’ve always done, and write it down? Would you like to know how the story turned out? Here’s a little taste.
Battling mounting debt, Stacy Macken is determined not to lose her historic art gallery. When Aaron Fielding appears and offers to help, she fights to keep the attraction sizzling between them from clouding her judgment. He may be her savior in disguise–but can she trust him?
Aaron intrigues her with tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, sworn warriors who protect humanity from the monsters seeking their destruction. If Aaron can prove what he claims, she would give up anything to help–even the gallery he claims is sacred ground. But with her property set to stage the next epic battle, she needs answers. An old family diary will confirm the ancient legend is true, if only they can find it in time.
If the battle is lost, the enemy will take control of Earth for the next five hundred years. Stacy and Aaron’s budding love might only complicate things.
Passion’s Sacred Dance can also be purchased for Kindle from Amazon and coming soon to other venues. I hope you’ll check it out and enjoy the story I had to tell!
