Is It True: Fractured by Deceit by Jami Gray @jamigrayauthor #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Jami Gray, author of Fractured by Deceit, a Paranormal Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Fractured by Deceit by Jami Gray

Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Hunted by a faceless enemy, she turns to him for help…
Megan Rouser survived six months at the hands of a brutal telepath only to emerge with fractured memories and a terrifying premonition of impending danger. Determined to regain control of her life, she turns to the one man who held her together and brought her out of hell…Bishop.
But who’ll protect him from her…
Jacob Archer, aka Bishop, has spent his life protecting others, and as part of the off-the-books psychic ex-military team known as PSY-IV, it’s a skill he’s mastered. Rescuing the determined and intriguing Megan triggers all his white knight tendencies, despite lingering suspicions about her kidnapping. But what happens when the threat he should be watching for is her?
As Megan and Bishop delve deeper into the twisted mind of a madman, will they find a way to survive unseen threats or be torn apart by the most intimate of betrayals?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Nope, this is actually my thirteenth.
this book is part of a series?
Yep! I’m a serious series writer (try saying that five times fast!) This is the fourth book in my paranormal romantic suspense series, PSY-IV Teams.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Of course. Actually, every time I get near the middle, I start worrying about the story. Even worse, as I head into the end, the characters start haunting my dreams.
you did research for this book?
I’m a research fiend, so I could lose myself in research. I have to limit how much time I spend on research. Since this series centers around an off-the-books psychic ex-military team, my writing partners have a bond fund on stand-by for those times I wander into areas I shouldn’t be in.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Nope, everyone’s human. However, to quote the lovely Liam Neeson, most of my main characters have “a very particular set of skills…skills that make [them] a nightmare…”
this book has more than one genre?
Funny enough, PSY-IV Teams is the one series that is straight-up paranormal romance. My other series tend to straddle genre lines.
you speak more than one language?
Not fluently. I grew up on the US/Mexico border so I spend most of my teenage years speaking Spanish.
you grew up where you live now?
I’ve stayed in the same state, yes, but not without some side trips to the Pacific Northwest and Utah. Somehow I always end back in Arizona. My Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor and I will probably attempt another escape in a few years when the Prankster Duo have settled. Fingers crossed we’ll be successful this time.
you love to read?
Holy mama-jamma, do I ever. I’m an avid reader, have been for-freakin’-ever. When I’m not on a project I can devour four to five books a week, but when I’m writing I tend to slow down to two to three.
you are never late?
I wish I could claim that honor, but I do my best not to be. I find that if I’m trying to stuff a bunch of errands into a condensed timeframe, I tend to skate the tardiness line.
you love pizza?
Eh…I like it, but love it? Not me. The males in my house, however, consider it a primary food group.
you love sushi?
That I do, and because the males in my house don’t, it leaves more for me.
you have a pet?
Two beautiful furry girls—Lola and Angel—our rescue-lab sisters. I needed to balance out the gender scales in my humble abode.

Is It True: Fear the Reaper by Jami Gray @jamigrayauthor #RLFblog #Postapocalyptic #RomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Jami Gray, author of Fear the Reaper, a Post-apocalyptic Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Fear the Reaper by Jami Gray

Genre Post-apocalyptic Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When the hunter becomes the hunted, it’s time to reap what you sowed…
The world didn’t end in fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
After vowing to never again put his life on the line for another’s ambitions, Reaper, leader of Fate’s Vultures, has earned himself a formidable reputation. Unfortunately, that reputation isn’t enough to stop an old enemy from retaliating. With bounty hunters sniffing at their heels, Reaper vows retribution and takes the Vultures to the one person no one expects–Lilith, the woman he once loved.
As leader of the Rocky Mountain territory, Lilith has paid dearly for a position that kept her secrets safe. When a looming threat draws close, every devil’s bargain she’s made falls by the wayside and she is forced to partner with the man who walked away.
With no choice but to work together against a common enemy, Lilith and Reaper need to find their way through the minefield of past betrayals and broken promises to ensure a future for those they’ve sworn to protect … before it all goes to hell.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Nope, this is actually my twelfth.
this book is part of a series?
Yep! I’m a serious series writer (try saying that five times fast!) This is the fourth and last book in my post-apocalyptic romance series, Fate’s Vultures.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Of course. Actually, every time I get near the middle, I start worrying about the story. Even worse, as I head into the end, the characters start haunting my dreams. When it comes the world that the Vultures live in, yeah, those images seeped into my dreams more than once and kept me up.
you did research for this book?
I’m a research fiend, so I could lose myself in research. I have to limit how much time I spend on research. To help ensure my world building rang true, I ended up reading a lot of theorical papers on worse case scenarios for world economies, civilizations, and so forth. It was actually pretty darnn scary to delve that deep into some scenarios, but the fact that humans managed to find a way to rise above, keeps the light of hope burning. I hang on to that hope no matter how discouraging the stories playing across our world theater.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Nope, everyone’s human. The difference these characters have been honed by brutal circumstances and a harsh new world, so black and white is actually a murky kind of gray.
this book has more than one genre?
To me, no. It’s a straight up post-apocalyptic romance, but I’ve watched it get categorized as Sci-Fi (I’m not even sure how that’s possible) and Action & Adventure (and I can totally see that one).
you speak more than one language?
Not fluently. I grew up on the US/Mexico border so I spend most of my teenage years speaking Spanish.
you grew up where you live now?
I’ve stayed in the same state, yes, but not without some side trips to the Pacific Northwest and Utah. Somehow, I always end back in Arizona. My Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor and I will probably attempt another escape in a few years when the Prankster Duo have settled. Fingers crossed we’ll be successful this time.

Introducing Jericho Drake from Drakon's Knight, by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Jericho Drake from Drakon’s Knight, a paranormal romance, by NJ Walters. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Drakon’s Knight by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance/Dragon shifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple plan: Kill the leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his target, Karina Azarov, she can’t remember who she is. Worst of all––he can’t kill her. His dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.
Karina has no idea why these Drakon’s have taken her to their home. And she most certainly does not understand why she’s so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he’s strong, intelligent, and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he’s not going to hurt her. If only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these Drakon’s hate her so much.
But if her memory returns, mated or not, he may get his war.. And one of them will die.

Introducing Jericho Drake

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A place that no longer exists
Profession: Assassin and Real Estate Mogul
Ethnicity:
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
What do you look like?
In my human, form I’m 6’10” with jet black hair and black eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern in red outlined in black. The red signifies I’m a fire drakon. The black is the same color of my eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Karina Azarov. Touch her and it will be the last thing you ever do.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I’ve lived a very, very long time. Whatever I need to learn I’ve taught myself or found someone to teach me. Drakons have phenomenal memories. That’s made it easier to adapt and change with the times.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve slept on the hot desert sands and eaten figs. I’ve stayed in 5-star hotels and in the palaces of kings. And I’ve enjoyed both experiences. I have homes all over the world and plenty of money, but I could live without any of it. It’s easy to make money. It’s the people I care about who are important. Okay, and my custom Harley. I do love my bike. It’s the closest thing there is to flying without having to unleash my wings.
What is your family like?
I have four half brothers I’ve never met and three men I’ve called brothers my entire life. We may not be related by blood, but they’re my family. I would die for them.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a drakon. Of course I can keep a secret. It’s what we do, who we are. Not many people know about us and we like to keep it that way.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For years, I wondered why my half brothers didn’t bother to look for me. I mean, they found one another but not me. First I was hurt. Then I was angry. Took me a few thousand years—okay four thousand—to get past it. I decided it was finally time to meet them. I concocted this entire elaborate plan. I was going to kill our greatest enemy and toss that in their face. Yeah, that plan didn’t exactly go as I thought it would.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You couldn’t make it easy, could you? After all my years of waiting, my fated mate had to be my greatest enemy. Only she can’t remember anything about her life. It messed me up for a while. I guess you had your reasons. And since I’m happy with the way things turned out, I’ll let you live.
