Guest Post & Giveaway! Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione Blog Tour!

To celebrate the 4th book in the Lords of Deliverance series, Rogue Rider, I'm very excited to have one of my favorite authors on the blog today!  Trust me folks if you haven't read anything that Larissa has written yet you are missing out on something good!

Hi there, Hanging With Bells readers! I'm excited to be here with one of my favorite bloggers, Bells, who asked me to list my top five favorite scenes in the Lords of Deliverance series. I love lists! So here goes, in no particular order:

#1. The bar fight scene in Rogue Rider. I had so much fun with that, because it was a pivotal scene that revealed Reseph's peacemaking side...the side that shows he knows exactly how lethal and self-confident he is. That self-confidence means he has nothing to prove and no insecurity about walking away from fights. Not that he didn't kick some ass anyway, of course. *g*

#2. The upside-down tree sex scene in Eternal Rider. Need I say more? :)

#3. The scene between Decker, Kynan, and Arik in the military dorm room in Immortal Rider. I've always loved "guy" scenes that involve dudes razzing each other and knocking back beers. So that was a fun scene to write.

#4. The scene in Lethal Rider where Thanatos learns that Regan is pregnant with his baby. I loved writing his shock and confusion, as well as his mixed feelings for Regan. He hates her and was prepared to kill her, and then suddenly, he has to protect her. That scene is just the beginning of his turmoil until the point where he learns the truth about what happened the night the baby was conceived.

#5. Again from Rogue Rider (which was my favorite book to write overall,) is a scene toward the beginning between Reaver and Harvester. She visits him in Sheoul (hell,) and the sparks fly. I just love those two together. I also really loved writing the scene where Reseph fully wakes up and pins Jillian to the mattress as he tries to figure out what's going on. Perfect scene to show exactly who Reseph is at heart -- and how his one-track mind works!

So those are some of my favorite scenes in the series. I hope you all loved them too!

  10. Ooh, I can't wait to read this series, but I have to catch up on the Demonica series first. I haven't finished that one and I am a little OCD about reading them in order-lol. I am loving that one so far, so this can only get hotter!

  16. I LOVE THIS SERIES! I have not read the Apocalypse: Lords of Deliverance Compendium yet. I wanted to wait until closer to the release of Rogue Rider. I can't wait for Reseph's book. I was somewhat surprised when I saw your comment yesterday that he was your favorite Horseman to write. The waiting is so hard on this book~ I can't wait to finally get to see the real Reseph.

  17. I love all of your books. This series is freaking amazing!!! I feel like I have been waiting forever for this book and am so excited to read it!

  19. Since I've been introduced to the Demonica and LOD series by a very good friend, I've also introduced pretty much everyone on my road to them! They all feel the same as I do Hot hot hot!!! Most weren't really readers and I said here's a book that will change that! Soon after they were coming to see me for the next one!
    I anxiously await Rogue Rider!!

  20. I'm Italian, so I can't participate, but no problem, since I preordered rogue rider and read the entire series..it's wonderful! :) I fell in love with every rider :)can't wait for Reseph :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love this series. I think my favorite scene is when Wrath states that the next time they call him to call when it is a kegger.... I think it was in Than's book. I also loved the scene in Than's book where Reaver sacrifices himself. You are an awesome writer and the characters live on long after the book has been finished. I got my hubby hooked on the series too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I could no sooner pick a favorite scene than I could pick a favorite character. I love the Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series for their well rounded characters, story lines, and blood pressure raising cliffhangers. I am always a little stir crazy when I wait for the next book.

  23. I feel guilty, I love chatting with Larissa on Twitter but I have yet to read any of her books. *hangs Pixie head in shame*

  24. OMG, I can't wait for this! But I don't want the series to be over..

  25. The release of each book comes with such bittersweet excitement it's crazy!! The thrill of the next chapter in the story and the guarantee of a great read is wonderful, but with each book that comes out, there is the bittersweet sadness that it is one more book closer to the end of the series. LOL The world Larrisa created is so vital and the characters so endearing that you never want to let them go.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Both of Larissa's series are outstanding and I can hardly wait for the 20th. And for those who really love her characters you should go to her website and read the little follow-up snippets for the couples! They are great additions to the collections.
