Romance or fantasy with characters who change species/visible outward appearance. Were-creatures.

Stone by Linda Mooney @LindaMooney #RLFblog #paranormal #fantasy #gargoyleLinda Mooney, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I also write sci-fi, paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary romances. I also write humorous naughty romances as Carolyn Gregg, and horror as Gail Smith.
How do you come up with ideas?
Sometimes a picture or a song will give me the germ of an idea. Other times it might a bit of dialogue. And sometimes I’ll be challenged to write a certain type of story. Those are the most fun.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Simply sitting down and immersing myself back into the story. I always edit the previous chapter before starting the next one.
When did you write your first book?
When I was five years old. By the time I was in fifth grade, I was writing almost continuously (and I still have some of those spiral notebooks!) However, I didn’t submit my first manuscript and get published until 2005.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Soft cotton
Ocean or mountains? Ocean (I’m fortunate to live near the Gulf of Mexico.)
City life or country life? Country life. Slow and easy.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home.
Dogs or cats? Dogs! (I have two dachshunds.)
Tell us about Stone
Garenth had been awakened to retrieve an ancient artifact that was crucial to his well-being. He had few memories of what his life had been like when he had been a man. What memories that were left were filled with blood and excruciating pain.
That part of him was over now. The talisman had been taken from its sacred burial place, and it had to be returned as quickly as possible. It was up to him to follow through with his mission so he could return to another thousand years of sleep.
Brielle Van de Camp knew an extraordinary find when she saw it. The small clay figure was the key to a potentially earth‑shattering revelation about a previously unknown time in man’s ancestry. She would bet her life on it.
Unfortunately, others had gotten wind of the talisman, and they were equally determined to claim its promise for themselves. If Brielle wasn’t willing to part with the figurine, they had no compunction about prying it from her dead fingers.
They never counted on having to face the guardian of the statuette, who turned out to be more than a creature of mythology.
Warning! Contains a magic talking rock, a mother idol, boo-lets, a cell phone app, deadly intruders, a ruthless businessman, a key card, and a warrior trying to cope with an ages-old curse with the help of a woman who must be a blessing from the gods.

Prince of Fools by Nancy Gideon @NancyGideon #RLFblog #paranormalWelcome Nancy Gideon author of Prince of Fools, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Prince of Fools is the third installment in my four book “House of Terriot” dark shapeshifter series. The Terriot clan was initially introduced as villains in my “By Moonlight” shapeshifter series, their warrior family ruled by the brutal iron-fist of Bram the Beast until overthrown by rowdy, rock-n-roll brawler son Cale in a move that divided the House and its twelve princes. The deliciously dark and dangerous brothers caught my creative attention, seducing me into giving them their own spin-off series and I’m totally loving each connected yet capable of standing alone book.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read anything and everything but my go-to has a touch of suspense and a hint of the paranormal. Dean Koontz is my all-time favorite author.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That would be a favorite couple, Eve Dallas and Rourke from J. D. Robb’s “In Death” series. Their relationship is constantly evolving and never ceases to fascinate. They inspired me to write my “By Moonlight” series with a continuing hero and heroine, something not unusual in Urban Fantasy but rarely done in Romance.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m getting ready to start Prince of Dreams, the fourth and final “House of Terriot” book which features the youngest prince, who prefers to use brains over brawn in the fight for his family’s survival until forced to decide between their path and his love for their enemy’s daughter. The heroine is a fortune teller whose gift is from a source she doesn’t understand and I’m loving researching the Tarot and other divination arts.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Prince of Dreams should debut in the spring of 2018 along with the reissue through Tell-Tale Publishing of my very first novel, Sweet Tempest, a historical regency written as Lauren Giddings. I’m planning at least one more book with Max and Charlotte, the fan favorite couple from my “By Moonlight” series as well as bringing back my “Bass Family of Texas” western historicals written as Dana Ransom. Lots of exciting and varied reading to watch for!

Please tell us about your latest book.

NJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Wolf in her Soul by your NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRDo you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write romance, but within that genre, I’ve written paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, and contemporary. Romance is such an open and diverse genre that allows me to explore pretty much anything I want. I love it.
How do you come up with ideas?
Ideas come from everywhere—an overhear snippet of conversation, an online quiz, a magazine article, a television show. Many times the ideas come not from one source but a combination of several.
The idea for my Hades’ Carnival series came from an online quiz about which carnival ride I was most like (a carousel). I started wondering about carousel animals and asking what if questions. What if they were really immoral warriors trapped by a curse? What if there was a special woman who could set them free? That idea became a seven book series.
My Salvation Pack series came from a random thought. What if five men separated from their pack and started their own? Why would they leave? What would be the consequences of their actions?
The possibilities are limitless.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Just doing it. I’m a pantser and not a plotter so I love to watch my characters’ stories come to life. I love creating worlds and stories. It’s such a gift. I’ve always said I feel as though I’m just taking dictation. All I have to do is show up and let my characters do all the work.
When did you write your first book?
I wrote my first book back in 1995. I’d always been a huge reader and decided one day that I could write a book. I wrote two actually, tried to find a home for them, and failed. I did get some great feedback from some wonderful editors who took the time to point out some problems with my writing technique. I put the stories away and forgot about writing until late 2003 when I started another book in response to an online contest. I didn’t place in the contest, but the book Annabelle Lee (recently rereleased as Uncovering Annabelle) was published in 2004. And the first two books I wrote—Discovering Dani and The Way Home—were eventually published as well.

Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her—the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He’s just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she’s the assault victim on a case he’s working on, and there’s a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she’s his mate.
Hannah Burdette has a secret she’s never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who—or rather, what—she is. There’s a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her “impure” blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn’t have to be alone anymore, she’s wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

Kara James QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

I write paranormal romance. Specifically shifters: merging werewolves and Rugby and dragon and other shifters with MMA.

How do you come up with ideas?

I think of a character first usually, then what if’s come next. For my Wolf Binding series, it was: What if a rugby teams goes off on holiday to the Transylvania Mountains and become werewolves? How would they cope and hide their secret from the world?

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Discovery. I know the characters, the general idea of the storyline and how it will end, but not all the stuff in-between.

When did you write your first book?

Wolf Binding is my debut paranormal romance/ shifter book.

Xander (A Dark Assassin Novel #3) by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #PNRWelcome Valerie Ullmer author of Xander (A Dark Assassins Novel Book There), a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?
I love creating the world of the Dark Assassins and Xander was the only one who truly believed in finding a mate, even before Kai had found Liv, the first of the assassins to find his mate. I love how each of them, although tough and bad in their own way, are sensitive and fall in love deeply.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love romance. It depends on my mood, but generally contemporary and paranormal romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I love Elizabeth Bennet. She can admit when she’s wrong and her love story with Darcy is nearly perfect!
What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on two novellas, both in the M/M contemporary romance genre. One for a boxed set and one that is a continuation of a relationship in my first M/M release, Unexpected.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Well, the novella in my Unexpected series will be released at the end of September and Jade, the fourth book in my Dark Assassins series, is going to be released in October.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Half-human, half-shifter.

Xander has secretly yearned for a mate for most of his immortal existence, and yet after three of his friends found exactly what he’s always wanted, he’d come to believe that he’d missed his chance at happiness.

Until he heard her voice.

Frost is a wildlife biologist and tracker and she has been assigned, despite her adamant protests, to lead mercenaries into the mountains of Snowfall, Colorado for the sole purpose of killing immortal shifters. In order to protect those who have no idea the kind of danger they are in, she agrees. As she leads the armed men on a wild chase around the snow-covered pines, she could sense that she was running out of time.

Until she heard his voice.

Xander understands exactly who Frost is the moment he hears her thoughts. With the help of Kane and Gunnar, they eliminate those in her group as they try to keep her safe. But during the fight, she is hurt and all of his protective instincts flare to life. As Xander learns more about her, he realizes that Frost might be the key to the creation of the immortals, both vampire and shifter.

But when she becomes a target from those who want to destroy the Dark Company and Xander’s family, how far will he go to save her?

Meet Ezra Easton from Drakon's Plunder by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome Ezra Easton from Drakon’s Plunder by NJ Walters (Blood of the Drakon, Book 3) a new paranormal romance.

Drakon’s Plunder by NJ Walters

Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She’s stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her…

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.

Introducing Ezra Easton

Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A tiny village long turned to dust
Profession: Marine Salvager
Ethnicity / Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I’m 6’8″ with shoulder-length brown hair and turquoise blue eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is the blue of the ocean off the coast of my home and outlined in the same turquoise as my eyes.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a water drakon, which means I’m as at home in the water as I am on land. Maybe more so since there are less people in the ocean.
Who is the significant other in your life?
That would be Sam, which isn’t short for Samantha. It’s Sam. There is no one else like her in the world.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
All of the above. I’ve lived a long time. Plenty of time to read and explore. I’ve seen places on land and in the ocean that no human has ever seen. I have a huge collection of artifacts that I’ve personally collected from all over the world, from all different time periods. The ocean is full of the stuff.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I have plenty of money and own my own island off the coast of…well, you really don’t need to know exactly where it is. What’s the point of living a long time if you can’t be comfortable. I don’t need a lot of fancy things. I have my home, plenty of food, my privacy, and most of all, I have the ocean on my doorstep.
On what special skills do you rely?
I’m a drakon. That means I have a lot of special skills. The one I enjoy the most is being able to shift into my dragon form, take to the ocean, and swim.
What is your family like?
There is only my brothers…half brothers really. We were all abandoned by our dragon father almost four thousand years ago. After that, our mothers and villages cast us out in fear. It’s made us close. There isn’t anything we wouldn’t do for one another. And now I have Sam. I pulled her from the ocean and I’m keeping her.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a drakon. Of course, I can keep a secret. I’ve been keeping a big one for thousands of years.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
I’d get rid of the Knights of the Dragon and everyone like them. All we want is to be left in peace. All they want is to capture us so they can drink our blood, which cures all disease and indefinitely prolongs the life of the one drinking it. Those guys have become a huge threat, not only to me and my brothers, but also our women. They have to be stopped. We’ve always tried to live and let live, but they won’t leave us alone. This time, we’re not backing down.

Four ways to Spot a Witch by Kryssie Fortune @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #urbanfantasyKryssie Fortune shares four ways to spot a witch.

1. Is the witch female?

Women are easily tempted to sin. Remember Eve and that damn apple? It taunted her from the tree branch while poor, innocent Adam ignored it. Historically, women were seen as morally week. Making a pact with the devil opened up a women’s wildest fantasies. Sometime, when struggling as an uneducated peasant, those fantasies were all she had.

Forget science and facts. Although… Okay, witches and flying go together. Ever wondered why? Most bread in the middle ages was rye bread, but that goes moldy fast. That mold’s interesting. It’s called Ergot. Too much is lethal. Smaller amounts are hallucinogenic and can give the illusion of flying. Most witch suspects were healers or herbalists, and they’d include Ergot in their potions. Rub that potion on your broomstick and straddle it, pre-flight. Middle ages remember. No underwear. Their bare genitals absorbed the potion, making them writhe and contort as it sent orgasm speeding though their body. Afterwards, they would think they’d been flying

2. Does the witch have a pet?

Don’t ever be lonely enough to take in a stray cat or dog, no matter how many purrs or puppy-dog eyes they give you. Witch hunters will claim the Devil sent the pet to her. Some believe the creature can shape shift. Historically witch hunters were warned to be on guard for small snakes, birds, cats, rats, dogs, and griffins. It makes you wonder how many griffins they found.

Pets or familiars didn’t only belong to women. During the English Civil war, Prince Rupert of the Rhine commanded the Cavaliers’ cavalry. By the age of 23, he was an experienced soldier, and everywhere he went, he took his huge white poodle, Boy, with him.

Parliamentarians thought the dog was Prince Rupert’s familiar, or even the Devil in disguise. They even claimed the dog could catch bullets in its mouth. Boy held the rank of Sergeant-major-general. After the cavaliers lost the Battle of Marston Moor, parliamentarians shot Boy, some say with a silver bullet. So, devil’s familiar? Werewolf? Or just a well- loved dog? You decide.

3. Does the witch have a wart?

Women breastfeed babies. Since I can’t find a reference to a female witch catcher, I assume they were male. Men are fascinated with women’s breasts, right? So, if the poor suspect had a third teat somewhere on her body, then that was a secret place for her familiar to suckle. Clearly men are terrified of women, why else would they need a panel of expert females to help find the hidden wart. Or maybe the men didn’t mind looking at the women’s breasts but not at her more private places.

4. Is the witch annoying?

What? Who decides this one? Does she get drunk and dance naked around the village? Some might call that local color. Does she come begging at the manor door? Surely powerful men had a duty to help the poor. Perhaps, if they were powerful, they were also greedy. What better way to not give alms than to out the poor beggar woman as a witch.

Why my interest in witches? Easy, the Tempest, the heroine in my book, Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf is one. Since she’s scared to touch her powers, she’s not a very good one, but then there’s the exploding cauldron to consider. Or the time an injured vampire crash landed on her carpet. Or the way her demon death spell bounced off a cluster of spider demons. All things considered, she’s probably best leaving her magic alone.

Kryssie Fortune’s Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf

After seven centuries, Elias, a former Spartan turned vampire, finds his eternal bride.

Seth, Elias’s werewolf half-brother, scents his mate.

Vampire and werewolf loathe each other. The only thing they agree on is that Tempest is their mate–and they’re not sharing.

A prophecy will force Tempest, a twenty-first-century witch, to choose between them. As the half-brothers vie to win her heart, they teach her about spanking, the way pain heightens pleasure, and the joy of multiple orgasms.

A vampire can’t survive without his fated bride. A werewolf dies if he loses his mate. Their future rests in Tempest’s hands. Which one will she choose?

Note: While loosely linked to the Scattered Siblings series, this book may be read as a standalone story.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons.

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.

Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.

Her books are all stand-alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

Drakon's Prey by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome NJ Walters author of Drakon’s Prey, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Drakon’s Prey is the second book in the new Blood of the Drakon series. A drakon is the son of a dragon and a human woman. I started this series with the premise of four drakons, all half brothers (same drakon sire, different mothers). They are 4000 years old and they have an enemy who will stop at nothing to capture and control them. Not only do drakons have great wealth, but their blood will cure all disease and prolong the life of the human drinking it. This is Tarrant’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. No surprise there. I love all kinds of romance—paranormal, historical, contemporary, and romantic suspense. I also like nonfiction and tend to read a lot of self help/spiritual books as well.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s a tough one. There are so many. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series is right up there. She’s tough and smart, but has a tender side, which she shows very reluctantly. I’ve read the entire series and am always waiting for the next book.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on another drakon book for the series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Lots happening in the coming months. My new publisher, Entangled, will be rereleasing my entire Samhain Publishing backlist (over 30 books), which was taken down with Samhain Publishing closed. I also have a new drakon book—Drakon’s Plunder—on July 3rd.

I’m thrilled to be part of an incredible anthology—Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology. My story is “Roadside Assistance.” It is available on June 13th, and can be pre-ordered for only 99-cents on Amazon.

The remaining three books in my Dalakis Passion vampire series will be rereleased between now and the end of the year. And there will probably be more.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Gladiator or warrior posing with shield and sword outdoors ready for battle

Play Is It True with today’s guest Kate Hill, author of Fangs and Fists: Grit, an erotic paranormal. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Werewolf gladiator Grit faced his own mortality in the arena, only to be resurrected by a demon. Grit now lives a shadowy existence as one of the soulless, remembering only bits and pieces of his former life. Nonetheless, he recognizes evil and knows he must fight for the future of his young son, as well as the rest of the world.

Zari, a vampire warrior, helped Grit escape the tower where he had been imprisoned. She had feelings for Grit when they’d first met, but at the time he had been mated to another wolf. Now that he’s on his own, they’re free to explore their feelings as they fight side by side as part of the rebellion against the demons. In the midst of war, their love grows, but danger is everywhere.

Haylen, the demon who resurrected Grit, offers a bargain that may save or destroy the rebellion. Whatever the outcome, Zari and Grit intend to face it together and explore the once forbidden passion between them.
