The Heracian Affair Playlist By Liv Olteano

I always use music to get into the mood of a scene. In my mind it plays out in 3D and everything, and I have a clear sense of what feel the scene should have. So I gather up the songs to give me that mood and lose myself in the music for a while. Then I write. Always works.
Here’s my playlist for some of the important moments of The Heracian Affair:

1. Rizzo’s theme:  Nancy Sinatra – Bang, Bang

2. Conrad’s theme: Coldplay – Lost! 

3. First meeting: Garbage – You Look so Fine 

4. Arriving on Heracia: Stereophonics – Maybe Tomorrow

5. Rizzo finds out about Conrad’s past: Duffy – Stepping Stone 

6. First time together: Bruno Mars – Locked Out of Heaven 

7. The Zax theme: Wumpscut – Evoke 

8. Prisoners: Shane Mack – More Then This 

9. May be their last time together: Adam Lambert – If I can’t have you 

10. The recuperation capsule: Staind – Excessive Baggage 

11. Visiting Conrad as he recuperates: Muse – Map of the Problematique

12. First meeting - again: Depeche Mode – I Feel You 

13. Rizzo and Conrad’s theme: Adele – Love Song 

What about you? What’s your theme song? :-)

Book Description:

Even years after Rizzo Berg’s lover and Dom died in combat, the memories torment him. Following a particularly disappointing date, Rizzo goes to sleep in his apartment only to wake up on a spaceship with tall, gorgeous, alien Captain Conrad D’Ollet of Heracia, a man so deliciously dominant Rizzo’s knees turn to jelly. 

Apparently the Heracians need help, and Rizzo is a humanitarian through and through. Spending more time around Conrad is totally not one of the reasons he wants to lend a hand. 

Soon Rizzo finds himself completely conquered and blissfully owned. But neither he nor Conrad is willing to risk his heart, let go of the past, and dare to believe in a future that won’t end in catastrophe.

About the Author:

Liv Olteano is a voracious reader, music lover, and coffee addict extraordinaire. And occasional geek. Okay, more than occasional.

She believes stories are the best kind of magic there is. And life would be horrible without magic. Her hobbies include losing herself in the minds and souls of characters, giving up countless nights of sleep to get to know said characters, and trying to introduce them to the world. Sometimes they appreciate her efforts. The process would probably go quicker if they’d bring her a cup of coffee now and then when stopping by. Characters—what can you do, right?

Liv has a penchant for quirky stories and is a reverent lover of diversity. She can be found loitering around the Internet at odd hours and being generally awkward and goofy at all times. For The Win.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
