Ringing in the New Year with Laurie Roma!

Laurie Roma lives in Chicago and is the author of the IAD and Arcadian series. She has always loved immersing herself in a good book and now enjoys the pleasure of creating her own. She can usually be found tapping away on her keyboard, creating worlds for her characters while she listens to music. Of course her playlist depends on her mood…but then again, so does her writing.

An avid reader of the romance genre, nothing bothers her more than annoying characters. Seriously, who wants a happy ending for someone that pisses you off? She loves tough alpha-male heroes and strong heroines that have brains as well as beauty. Her novels are filled with both passionate romance and down and dirty lust-driven interludes, as she believes both are essential to a good love story. She loves to hear from her readers and can be reached at laurieromabooks@gmail.com.

3013: MATED
3013: The Series

Alexis Donovan is a woman whose dream of falling in love with the perfect men has been dashed because of her infertile status. Still recovering from a war that almost destroyed the world, human's have fought to rebuild and have once again opened their shields to outside visitors. As a liaison officer for alien races that are visiting Earth, Alexis does her best to ignore what she can never have, but when she is put in charge of four visiting alien warriors, her entire world changes...

Dragons Warriors from Arcadia, Xavier and Galan Tesera and their best friends Thorn and Brydan Volis, have been curious about Earth ever since they helped the humans defeat their enemy years ago. As commanders of their own space vessel they travel the galaxies searching out the unknown, but in their hearts they know they will never truly be satisfied without a mate by their side.

When the four Dragon Warriors land on Earth they are instantly enamored with the sharp-tongued liaison who ignites a burning passion in their hearts, and know that she is the mate they have been searching for who will complete their souls. Will Alexis take a chance on four alien warriors or will the fear of leaving everything she has ever known destroy her chance of finding true love?


“I want you,” she whispered, her voice shaking with nerves. “I do want all four of you, but I’m scared about what will happen…”

“Then let this be enough for now,” Galan replied.

She nodded and watched as both of their silver eyes blazed with a hunger. Her breath caught as Galan’s lips came down to meet hers, taking her in a soft, searing kiss that make her tremble. Alexis angled her head, needing to get closer to him and gasped as she felt Xavier come up behind her, reaching around to cup her full breasts in his large hands.

She lost herself in the kiss, immersing herself in the feel of them, loving their hands on her body. When she pulled back, she blinked in surprise as she suddenly realized that Xavier had removed her uniform top and bra while she had been busy kissing Galan. Her skin was flush with arousal, her nipples hard points that were aching to be touched.

As if sensing what she wanted, Galan lowered to his knees in front of her.

“These are perfect,” he purred moving his head to suck her nipples. Her head fell back on Xavier’s chest, trusting him to hold her up as Galan sucked on one nipple then switched to the other, lashing the taut bud with his tongue before sucking hard. She could feel each pull of his mouth like a lightning bolt that shot straight to her core. Xavier turned her head and settled his mouth over hers, forcing his tongue deep with a growl that made her weak with need.

They were taking her over and she let them. Galan’s hands made quick work removing her boots then he went to work on her pants, also pulling her panties down her legs so she was standing naked between them.

“You are a vision, sweetling. A dream come true,” Galan said reverently.

“Perfection,” Xavier agreed with a rumbling purr. “I cannot wait to feel your beautiful body welcoming me inside you.” Their words made her shiver and she gripped Xavier’s head, pulling it back down to her so she could kiss him again.

More, she needed more.

Sharp hunger drove Alexis to rub her body back against Xavier, loving the feel of his steel- hard erection against her back. They were so much bigger than her, but she felt completely safe in their arms, sheltered between them. A gasp tore from her lips as Xavier lowered his hand between her legs, circling her clit with his finger.

Xavier drank down her moan as he pushed two fingers into her slick heat. She was dripping wet, and it pleased him to feel how much she wanted them. Never before had just seeing a female made his cock grow hard as stone.  He let out a growl as he stared down at her beautiful body, running one of his hands over her lush curves and hips as he used his other to push his fingers inside her. His body trembled with need to take her…to bend her over the couch and ram his cock deep into her tight pussy until he filled her with his seed, but she wasn’t ready yet. They were so much bigger than their tiny mate, and he knew his large cock would hurt her if she wasn’t prepared to take him.

“So wet,” Xavier purred against her ear. “Do you like the pleasure we are giving you, little one? Tell us. Tell us what you want, Alexis.”

“Oh, god. I want you,” she panted, moaning as he began to finger fuck her faster as Galan went back to work sucking on her nipples. “Please, Xavier. Please…”

“You shall have us,” Xavier promised in a dark, heated growl. He wrapped his other arm around her middle, holding her back against him. “We will fill you so full you will not remember what it is like not to have us inside you, but first we need to make you come. Our cocks are large and we do not want to hurt you.”

“I have lube in a drawer by my bed in the other room,” she explained then winced at how that sounded. “Most relationships now are ménage so I’ve been with two men at—”

Both males snarled, cutting her off. “We do not want to hear about you with any other males. You belong to us now,” Xavier growled dangerously.
Alexis felt something inside of her shift. Normally, that kind of statement would have put her back up, but coming from them, it only enhanced her need. She wanted to belong to them. Everything they had said to her was like something out of her wildest fantasy. It was almost unimaginable how four strong Dragon Warriors would want someone like her when they could have anyone they wanted. She pushed that thought away, simply letting herself enjoy the moment as she ground her ass back against Xavier, making him suck in a harsh breath.

“Then take me,” she challenged.


Blog Post

I have a lot coming up in 2014, and I can’t wait to get started! I’m planning on continuing my IAD and Arcadians series, but I am also working on two new series that I will be starting soon. Want to know what they are? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see *wink wink*. I am also very excited to be working on the 3013 sci-fi/futuristic series with a few talented authors that I have the honor of calling my good friends, and can’t wait to delve back into that world. 2013 has amazing, but I’m expecting for 2014 to top it. I’m both pleased and grateful that my readers have allowed my characters into their hearts, and I can’t wait to continue to entertain them with new and exciting stories!

Behind the Scenes

Ø How did you come up with the title?

3013: MATED ties in the series title as well as the subject of the book itself. Since the setting for the series is in the year 3013, each of the books in the series will use this as a signifier. For this book, the main characters are aliens from another planet who are looking for their mate. When the four Dragon Warriors land on Earth they instantly know that Liaison Officer Alexis Donovan is the female they have been searching for who will complete their souls…hence, 3013: MATED.

Ø Is there a message in your novel that you hope readers walk away with?
I love characters that are flawed, who bring their own issues into a relationship because it makes them real. With that said, I’d like to think my message can resonate with everyone… No matter what happened in the past or how many obstacles life throws in anyone’s path, everyone deserves love and a chance to find their own happily ever after.
Ø What are your current projects?
Right now I am currently working on the 1st book for a new contemporary series, and I am also planning my second book of the 3013 series. For fans of IAD, the twins story will be next and I also have the next Arcadian book ready to go. I just need to find the time to write them all!

Ø Name one person you feel supported you outside of family members:

It’s my friends and fellow authors that give me the most support outside of my family. It always helps to vent to someone who knows exactly what you are going through, and they help me stay sane when I hit any rough moments.

Ø How much research do you do?

I do a lot of research when I am writing my books. I need to know exactly how things work in order to be able to write about it, and I want my facts as authentic as possible.

Ø Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

I think covers are essential to the buying process. It is the first thing that captures a reader’s attention and makes them want to read the blurb. I have to admit, I can’t stop looking at my latest cover for 3013: MATED because it is just so awesome!
