The Outsiders and Love

If you have read any of my other work, or if you’re just finding me now, you’ll know (or soon discover) that I have a really big interest in soul mates. I love the idea of it, I think I’m married to my own, and I love to tell the stories of soul mates finding each other.

The Outsiders is a bit of a unique take on the subject, for me.  First, I guess I should start to tell you a bit about the Outsiders.  Love Beyond Loyalty is the third book in the series.  The first book is Love Beyond Time and the second one was Love Beyond Sanity. There will be a total of nine books in this series.  

In Time, I introduced you to the Outsiders.

They look like humans but they are not human. With special powers, they have always helped to keep the balance of good and bad in the universe.  But a prophecy that they accidently self-fulfill brings about their near destruction. The only ones left alive are eighteen babies, nine sets of soul mates who are meant to be together as units.  They are stronger together.

However, a terrible mistake separates the group and now most of them have no idea that they are Outsiders or that they are involved in a war against a powerful demon who, every year he is allowed to exist on the earth, becomes more and more powerful.

Each book in this series tells the story of the war against the demon, whose human name is Sebastian.  But this is also a hot series about love.  Because, ultimately, it is the love that they feel for each other that will allow them, if they can, to triumph against evil.


“Are you going to tell me what happened to you? You just stood there and let that wave slam into you. I thought you were dead but Futon knew you were alive.”
Futon? He regarded the dog. A medium sized border collie with black spots stared back at him. His heart sped up. He‘d heard that name for a dog before. In fact, it was the same damn dog. 

“I know you.” He pointed at the creature. “But the last time I saw you was with an old woman on Magazine Street in New Orleans.” 

Gabriel had been working for a shady lingerie storeowner on the bad side of Magazine Street at the time. Trying to find out what Sebastian wanted with the man, he would later uncover that the demon had employed Trent, the owner, to kill virgins by bleeding them to death. Gabriel still didn‘t fully understand how it benefited Sebastian and he wasn‘t sure he ever would. On his second day, he‘d been hassled by an old woman on the street who‘d told him Sebastian was in New Jersey and that he needed to hurry up and get there. 

She‘d spoken of fate and a lot of mumbo-jumbo he hadn‘t understood. It had turned out that she was right and he‘d high-tailed it off to New Jersey to help stop Sebastian‘s assault on the Outsiders. The woman had been with Futon. 

The woman shook her head. “There are lots of border collies around this area. You must have seen a different one because Futon never leaves me.”

About Love Beyond Loyalty:

Gabriel Ward has no problem with the fact that he’s an Outsider. Hell, he’s always known he was different. What he takes issue with is the idea he has to follow any destiny at all. He’s taken care of himself-and others-since birth. There’s no way he has to start following rules now.

Loraine Peacock can speak to animals. Other than that she thinks she’s just a regular woman making her way in the world. She figures it’s not that weird. Many people have unusual abilities.

But when Gabriel and Loraine are forced together by a destiny he denies and she is ignorant of, they will both finally have to accept their Outsider legacy and help the others in their quest to defeat the ultimate evil—a demon bent on world destruction. That is, if they can both survive to find their way to the most important part of their destiny: love.

About the author:

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

  1. I love the idea of soul mates. I am looking forward to reading this story.

  2. One author complained about The Look one gets when you say that you write Romance. What about you do you get some funny looks when you tell people what you write about?
    I got that look when I mentioned my major in Literature, so I'm curious how people react to writers :)


  3. I, too, love the idea of soul literature. I just don't think it's realistic in the real world.

  4. I'm glad to host, Goddess Fish. ;-)

    Lyra, I think there is a "look" for every genre, depending upon whom you're talking to. It takes all kinds....

    Catherine, I believe in soul mates.

  5. Thank you so much for hosting me today. I actually got made fun of on a dinner date with another couple. The husband made such fun of me. He thought he was very clever. My husband actually told him off.

  6. I'm not sure about soul mates ,but it's a nice idea. Deb. P

  7. Stories about soul mates finding each other makes for great reading. It's a subject that crosses genres.


  8. I love stories about meeting your soulmate, especially if it's done with a paranormal context.


  9. I'm not sure I believe in soulmates in real life but I like to read of them in books, the idea is nice.
