Blog Tour: Forever Breathing by Heather Allen

Welcome to our stop on the Forever Breathing blog tour.  

We make no secret of the fact that we are huge Heather Allen fans and we are thrilled to be showcasing book three in the Just Breathe series.

Ever Harding has finally found where she belongs, with Jack in the sea. Just when she thought she could start her new life, a new threat forms on the horizon. She must make her biggest choice yet. Is she willing to risk everything to save the love of her life and all she holds dear?

James discovers yet again that his purpose is greater than anything he could ever imagine. He thought he had it all figured out, but sometimes things can be very deceiving. Is he willing to stand up for all he believes is right?

In the final book of the ‘Just Breath’ trilogy, Ever and James find themselves not against each other but fighting together to preserve the freedoms of others. Will they be able to defend the right to choose when the odds are hugely against them? 


The change in Alex was instant. As soon as I saw his face after that kiss, I knew I had him. Knowing I am hurting him without his knowledge, kills me but I soldier on. Jack and the freedom to choose are my priorities and they will remain. We all make our choices and Alex made his by coming here. I have to keep reminding myself of that. 

He was reluctant to take me to see this Roman guy, but I insisted. I need to get it over with. 

We stop in front of a stained glass door. The glass depicts various scenes of mer-people clad in silver and gold armor fighting. It reminds me of the battle we just had back home. It’s forever cemented in my brain. I wouldn’t need anything to remind me, maybe something to help me forget. Alex pushes on the doors and they open easily into a room with a marble floor and black walls. This castle or wherever we are, is quite different than anything I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of art deco style. The one thing I do notice though as I glance forward are three intricately carved golden thrones centered on a raised platform. Unfortunately, the one person I never want to see again is seated right in the middle with a smug look, Metea. If I never saw her again it would be too soon. My confidence takes a nose dive. I wish for the tingle to come or better yet, maybe I can abort the mission and travel back home. I close my eyes for a second, unsure of, what I should do. 

Alex brings me back though. He grabs my hand, squeezes, and leans over whispering into my ear, “It’s okay, I’m here.” 

It works momentarily and I gather some wits, opening my eyes. Alex always helped to boost my confidence. I glance over and he smiles. It reminds me of the first time I laid eyes on this witch, seated in front of us. I square my shoulders, refusing to let her get the best of me again. 

As we approach, there is movement behind the chairs and a very large mer-man with a gruff face and a squared jaw swims out. He is discussing something with a smaller man who seems to be taking mental notes. We stop ten feet from the thrones and he looks up as we do. My confidence falters again when my eyes meet his. 

I lean over to Alex and whisper, “Is that…”

Before he can utter a word, the mer-man speaks up and meets my eyes, “Yes, It is, I am Jaspen’s brother. And you, you are his granddaughter. To what, do we owe the honor of a second Harding visitor within the same day?”

I am flabbergasted. Jaspen’s brother. There is more to this whole thing than I had originally thought. I wonder if Jaspen already knows who is behind all of this. Oh wow, how are we all going to come out of this in one piece?

His raspy voice interrupts my thoughts, “Why are you here?”

I look over to Alex for help. Suddenly I can’t find any words. Some actress I am. I haven’t even been here an hour and I’m already giving myself up.
