Hello and welcome!
Today I have somebody from a series I adore. It was hard to choose, because all the warriors in the series are my book boyfriends, but this one stood out more to me.
Get yourself a coffee, a glass of wine, (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?) and read on.
What is your full name?
Sir Aidan of Fallenrock
Do you have a nickname?
Dandan. But only Leenie, my friends four year old daughter, is allowed to call me that for female children are a rare blessing and she may have whatever she wants. You may call me Sir Aidan.
Aidan! One of my fave names *sigh*
What is one word best describes you?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Paige took my clothes. We were not expecting company.
I don’t mind, not at all 😀
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes, but she did not do my Paige’s beauty justice. There are no words for such things.
What makes you laugh out loud?
When my bride tried to tell me I’d have to wait a month before I could touch her. They have amusing customs on her home plane. Luckily, on Staria, we do not have such nonsense in order to marry. All I had to do was claim her as my wife.
What is your favourite dessert?
What is your favourite drink?
Ale brewed at the Axe Hitter Tavern.
What is your greatest fear?
Why would I tell you that? Are you sure you’re not a spy for the Caniba?
What is your favourite colour?
The green of Paige’s eyes.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
What I’m wearing now.
What is the perfect romantic date?
Hunting with Paige in the forest. Or, hunting Paige in the forest. I like that second one better.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Not at all. After a lifetime at war I have nerves of steel.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The flowers in Paige’s hair. It means my wife is close.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
When I first saw Paige she was drunk on ambrosia so there wasn’t much time to look before she began to… I’m sorry, my wife is waving her arms behind your head. I’m not sure why.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Lady Paige. She keeps my senses sharp. It’s not easy handling a strong-willed woman, but I do enjoy it. Being constantly at war, Starian warriors don’t think of marriage as love, but rather seizing what moments we can before death. Paige taught me the true meaning of love. In this her ways are better than ours.
What is one word best describes her?
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Unfortunately, no other Starian warrior will find a woman like mine. She is truly a rare gift from the gods.
I suppose the others will continue to go to battle until King Wilhelm orders them to Battlewar Castle to attend a breeding ceremony. I’m not sure they’ll have much luck, though, considering those brides are all bartered for from parallel planes. What if these otherworlders are misshapen or strange in the head? Or worse, cowards? I do not trust this Divinity Corporation to choose women who are right for Starian men. Those Divinity man-aliens are weak and simpering and endlessly talking. They depend on their technologies more than duty and responsibility and the power of a full day’s work. They do not earn a trip through the fairy rings with the gods’ blessings, they build contraptions to force their way where they do not belong. The gods would never bless such overstepping people. Here in Staria we know what is important—duty in battle, meeting your responsibilities as a warrior, as a husband, and as a man.
My love happened by the gods’ will when they ordered fairies to throw her into my arms through a fairy ring. That is how love should happen.
Thank you Sir Aidan for taking the time to answer my questions.
Hope you enjoyed the chat.
Series One of the Divinity Universe
Alternate Reality Romance / Parallel Universe
An outcast because of her psychic abilities, Paige doesn’t expect her people to rescue her when a zealous sect of Faerians sacrifices her to their gods. Thrown through a fairy ring to a new dimensional plane, drugged on ambrosia, she is compelled to seduce the first man she meets. Only when the effects wear off and she’s left with an insatiable husband expecting more than she’s willing to give, does Paige discover the true extent of what the fairies have done.
Ordered by the king to marry, Sir Aidan of Fallenrock is dead set against taking a bartered bride. He believes his people should be patient and wait for the gods to bless them. When the beautiful Lady Paige comes through the sacred rings, kissing and touching him like she knows their joined fate, Aidan’s sure he’s being rewarded–until his new bride tries to back out of their marriage.

My review on Audible: “I think this would be my fave story in the series. I love Aidan, the way he deals with Paige, with patience, acceptance and ardent love. I adore Paige, she is a strong woman, knows her own mind and is not afraid to speak up, deals with everything thrown her way, she is funny at times. I am so happy that they came to form a solid relationship that she has foreseen to last well into their old age.
A great choice in narrators, I LOVE Rebecca Cook’s voice, so versatile, full of emotion and passion. Thank you for the hours of pure enjoyment.” 5 stars
Give the series a try.
In a land forever at war, the Starian men are so busy fighting that their marriage ceremony has been reduced to a “will of the gods” event where they simply pick a woman out of a lineup and claim her as a wife. With women becoming scarce, it’s necessary to trade the offworld Divinity Corporation for brides.
They live a very Medieval-like existence. Instead of medical advancement and technology, all of their focus has been on developing weaponry and battle strategy. With places named for war, such as Spearhead and Battlewar, these men have been left in charge way too long. They are in desperate need of a woman’s touch.
To have a man so devoted as all of them in this series… *sigh*
