Black Hellebore--Nicole Zoltack


Hello all! Would you please welcome Nicole Zoltack to RBTL today.


 Nicole has a new book coming out October 21, and it sounds awesome! She's here today to tell us all about it. 

Thank you so much for hosting me today, Jessie!

BLACK HELLEBORE is a superhero romance. Nicholas Adams loved Justina Paige more than anything else in the world. When she died, he basically ruined his life. Every year, he returned to her grave and place a black hellebore flower on her grave. A decade later, Justina’s twin, Julianna, finds him at her sister’s grave.

Now the twins may have looked identical – blond hair, blue eyes, slender builds, five foot seven – but the similarities ended there.

Justina was the more adventurous one out of the two, striving to have fun at all costs. She had a tendency to be reckless and never followed the rules. She never knew what she wanted to be when she grew up and thought the world was gray. Or rainbow colored. Justina and Nick constantly got into trouble, and she loved him.

Julianna was more studious. She always followed the rules…until Nick shows back up in Falledge. She grew up wanting to be a reporter and viewed the world in black and white. Justine and Nick were her best friends. Now, she’s trying to get Nick and the straight and narrow. And trying not to fall for someone she’ll always consider her sister’s.

Nicholas never thought he’d be able to move on past Justina’s death. And he definitely didn’t intend to start thinking of Julianna as more than a friend. He’s stuck and doesn’t know what to do.

Are you more like Julianna or Justina?

Once a year for the past decade, Nicholas Adams returns to Falledge and leaves a black hellebore on his girlfriend's grave. While departing Falledge, he chases after a man sneaking into the laboratory and dies for his trouble. A witch brings him back to life, but Nicholas soon realizes he's not the same man. Turns out, magic combined with a black hellebore in his pocket changed him into a kind of a super man.

His girlfriend's twin, Julianna Paige, is Falledge's deputy, struggling to solve several murders. Nicholas, and his alter ego the Black Hellebore, helps her, even as she helps him move on and even start to love again.

Unfortunately, Nicholas wasn't the only one changed in the laboratory explosion, and now there's a supervillain bent on destroying Falledge, and killing the Black Hellebore. But falling in love might prove more dangerous than any supervillain.

Aislinn of Bairbhe dreams of becoming a lady knight to honor the death of her fallen brother. To her mother's horror, King Patrick grants Aislinn's wish and she begins her long years of training.

Through the years, Aislinn and Caelan grow from sparring classmates to good friends. They both know that someday Caelan will marry for the sake of the kingdom, but even that cannot keep them from falling in love. 

The threat of war with the Speicans is a constant threat, and one that grows more frightening as she and Caelan train toward their eventual knighthood. Aislinn has committed herself to serving Arnhem, and has promised herself as King's Champion when Caelan claims the throne. She is willing to give up everything... her childhood, her life, even her heart for Arnhem. No matter the pain it brings.
