Meet my Characters Blog Hop~Meet Rolf from Rolf’s Quest
Hi everyone! I was invited to participate in this blog hop by Shehanne Moore and her adorable but ornery hamsters. You can read her post here http://shehannemoore.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/meet-my-charac…-the-courtesan/ When you stop by, say ‘hi’ the hammies for me. They don’t bit but don’t turn your back on them either.
First, a bit of info about Shehanne Moore:
When not cuddling inn signs in her beloved Scottish mountains, Shehanne Moore writes dark and smexy historical romance, featuring bad boys who need a bad girl to sort them out. She believes everyone deserves a little love, forgiveness and a second chance in life. Visit her blog to find out about past releases and hear more about her forthcoming time-slip historical, The Viking and The Courtesan. http://shehannemoore.wordpress.com/
Thanks for the invitation, Shey! Now, I’m supposed to choose one character from a work-in-progress or a recently published book and answer seven easy questions. Here goes!
Rolf’s Quest is the first book in my new Medieval Encounter series.
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
My main character’s name is Rolf. He is a descendant of Merlin.
When and where is the story set?
It is set during the reign of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitane in the 12th century. Eleanor was a big fan of Arthur, the Round Table and chivalrous knights.
What should we know about him/her?
He is a wizard and court advisor to the royal couple. He is also a shape-shifter. He loves to move through the night as a wolf or hawk.
What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
He is on a quest to break the curse that has plagued his family for generations. Merlin has been trapped in a hawthorn tree since Nimue bewitched him centuries ago.
What is the personal goal of the character?
He must find a woman whose love is true without the use of magic. The twist: she must also be willing to give up everything for him. But will he fight for her?
Is there a working title for this novel and can we read more about it?
Rolf’s Quest is the working title. It is coming soon in the ‘Love Least Expected’ anthology to be released February 2015.
That was fun! Now who to poke for next week … hmmm. How about the talented Valerie Clarizo? Her third book in the romantic suspense series ‘A Nick Spinelli Mystery‘ will be released in February.
Valerie is a writer of romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction novels. She lives in beautiful Door County Wisconsin with her husband and one very spoiled cat. She loves to read, write, and spend time at her cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She’s lived her life surrounded by men, three brothers, a husband, and a male Siamese cat who required his own instruction manual. Keeping up with all the men in her life has turned her into a successful hunter and fisherwoman.
She is a member of Romance Writers of America and the Wisconsin Romance Writers of America. Additionally, she was a finalist in the 2011 Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, Novellas Need Love, Too! Contest.

And perhaps the lovely Kishan Paul? She has a novelette in the same anthology with Rolf’s Quest and her debut contemporary romance to be released in 2015.
I am an aspiring new author currently working on a psychological thriller. A wife and proud mother of two, I love chocolates and all things spicy. I believe there is humor to be found in most aspects of life.
