Guest romance authors April Fifer and Danielle Hylton-Outland

Please welcome authors April Fifer and Danielle Hylton-Outland


Unattainable… what’s so great about it? Everything! We all love the unattainable relationship. Paranormal Romance is built on this very subject. (In our opinion.) As Paranormal Romance lovers, we can’t help but cling to the stories of love and loss or can never be. We so badly want to beat the odds. Who says a vampire and a werewolf can’t fall in love and make it work?  So what that the odds are stacked against them and that they are from different worlds. Love will find a way. Isn’t that what we all believe? In Flesh and Feathers we thrived off this concept, and what better way to create it then to have a love triangle between to extremely hot, paranormal heroes? Azaleigh loves Kale… Kale loves Azaleigh… Gage loves Azaleigh… Azaleigh loves Gage. It’s a mangled mess where emotions and feelings flood the characters with no possible good outcome. Or is it? As we shake our magic eight-ball, we pray that they answer is “yes.” (The magic eight-ball knows all. LOL.) There is nothing sexier than two characters who are completely consumed by each other, trying to beat these odds. It’s much like our normal lives. We struggle with strife everyday… maybe we don’t have problems such as blood thirst verses uncontrollable body manipulation, leaving us a little more furry than before. But as humans, we struggle with the unattainable. We covet; we need; we want. It is all very simple. And what we want is to be coveted, needed, and wanted by something extraordinary because we see ourselves so… very… ordinary. (At least we do.) During our journey in writing Flesh and Feathers, we became Azaleigh. We felt her needs and wants, and we found ourselves feeling the same way. We fell in love with Kale and Gage, just as she did. And at the end of the book, our hearts sank. Our relationship with the characters were unattainable. We couldn’t talk to them, or touch them, or explain our feelings to them. This is what keeps us going. The need to achieve what you can’t have is overwhelming. But yet we want it that way. It’s no fun without a fight.

We want to thank Bitten By Paranormal Romance so much for having us today. We are huge fans of their site and appreciate them letting us be a part of it.

April and Danielle

Flesh and Feathers:

Azaleigh's life is simple until, by chance, she meets Kale. Charming and handsome, Az is immediately drawn to him. But long kept secrets lurk in the hearts of those Az holds most dear, and dangerous plans are unfolding around her. As her life begins to crumble and Kale disappears, Gage, charismatic and striking, arrives, providing a calm port in an increasingly violent storm. But with every narrow escape from a far from human bounty hunter who's after her life, Az begins to unravel a secret with the power to change her forever. In an increasingly hostile world of Angel and Fallen, Azaleigh must navigate her own path, chose her own side, and ultimately protect her heart. Faced with two gorgeous men, an enemy she doesn’t know, and a future she cannot understand, Az must make a choice—the man she loves, or the man she cannot live without.
