Inside the Secret Society of the CHOSEN

Welcome to the MFRW Rainbow Blog Hop -- and by extension, to the Tarthian Empire. This blog post features Science Fiction Romance.

The Chosen serve the immortals known as Sempervians. Like any group, it has its hidden alignments, mistrust, and mistakes. It also harbors enemies and spies within its ranks -- some known and tolerated, others hidden behind layers so convoluted even the ones who live forever haven't figured them out.

Chosen is an acrostic for:
Called to serve
Honored to protect
Obedient to the vow
Safeguards of the truth
Enablers of life
Neutralizers of threats

This won't give away the plot -- just the focus of the stories. The Tales of the Chosen trilogy at Liquid Silver Books focuses on relationships among Luc Saint-Cyr, Wulf Gabriel, Alitus Vivaldi, and Rheyn Destoiya. It's a complex tangle, and begins with Luc and Wulf, jumps to Alitus and Rheyn, and ends with Alitus and Wulf.

In Wulf, immortal Luc Saint-Cyr rescues his Chosen, Wulf Gabriel, and their relationship as lovers begins. In Alitus, the relationship of Alitus with Rheyn (another immortal) alters when she is required to test Alitus before he can become her Chosen. In the final book, we meet Jawk, the Chosen of an immortal whose identity is obscure until the end of the story. Jawk's hidden agenda slices through the cozy partnerships previously established, and sets the immortals at one another's throats. Things will never be the same between any of them.

Here's a quick peek at each book.
Lust. Power. Forgiveness. Can a romance live forever?
To survive, superstar Wulf Gabriel must depend on the one man he swore he would never trust again - the most powerful and feared man in the empire - the Harbinger. Saving Wulf is simple; gaining his trust will take reaching into the Harbinger's own dark past and facing a truth he's avoided since the night Wulf's father died. ...Because of him.

His combined talents in bed and politics take him from the Conqueror's favorite pleasure slave to her personal assistant.

Forbid My Heart 
In the secret society of the Chosen, being gay or straight is no different from being brown-eyed or blue-eyed. No one notices. But disloyalty? That's an offense punishable by death. No trial needed. In this trilogy, everyone's loyalty is questioned. How can you tell which follower is loyal to which leader? Factor in leaders who have dual allegiances, and knowing who to trust takes on a whole new level of danger -- especially if you live forever.

Other books featuring these immortals and their Chosen include Surrender Love, and Forbid My Heart from Loose Id.
