Alyssa Day Q&A and Giveaway: Romance Awareness Month



Just a few weeks ago, I was happily surprised to find that August is Romance Awareness Month! I can’t find an origin, but it’s a real thing, and I’m ALL FOR IT!

To celebrate, I sent an *all call* to some of my favorite romance authors, asking each of them the same questions about romance (their own, their favorites, and their characters). All month long we’ll be sharing the authors’ answers, and EVERY ONE OF THEM is offering a giveaway!


Today’s author is New York Times bestseller Alyssa Day. Readers can find romances in Alyssa’s paranormal worlds, her mysteries, and her contemporary stories.

Today is release day for the newest addition to her Cardinal Witches series, DAMON’S ENCHANTRESS.





What is your simple definition of “romance”?

Happily ever after!

What is the most romantic thing someone’s done for you?

On Navy Guy’s first deployment after our daughter was born, he arranged to have flowers delivered to me every single week.

Do you have any “romance mishaps” you can share?

In college, I had a thing for musicians with long hair. I’d tell you more, but then I’d have to kill you. 🙂

If your own romance was a novel, the title would be…

TALK TO ME, BABY (Navy guys are remarkably quiet…)

What is the most romantic thing one of your characters has done for their love interest? 

I have so many I don’t even know how to choose one. Alaric, High Priest of Atlantis, gave up his magical powers and his job and his entire life for Quinn. (HEART OF ATLANTIS). King Conlan abdicated the throne of Atlantis for Riley. The heroes of my Cardinal Witches series are more funny than romantic, and would laugh at the idea of poetry, but they’re protective alpha males with secret tender hearts!

Do you have a favorite romance trope? (Either to read, or write.) If so, which one?

YES!! The hunky adventurer hero and the brainy heroine. The MUMMY movie with Brendan Fraser was EVERYTHING. I SO begged the universe to let me star in a sequel with Oded Fehr as my leading man…

Who is your favorite (aside from one of your own) fictional romantic couple?

See above. Also Han Solo and Princess Leia.
