Embroidered Fantasies by NJ Walters

Genre Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

With her abusive ex-husband safely behind bars, Roxanne Sykes is trying to carve out a quiet life for herself. Just as she’s beginning to feel free to explore her new possibilities, word reaches her that her cruel ex has been released from prison. When he shows up at her door bent on destroying her, it’s only through the magic of a well-loved tapestry that Roxanne is whisked away to safety–and into the world of a warrior she’s known only from her fantasies.

Radnor Craddock has known only a life of violence and brutality at the hands of his older brothers. Now that they have fallen in battle, Radnor and his twin brother Sednar can finally put their house in order. Just as their efforts are bearing fruit, fate smiles upon them again by delivering a potential tapestry bride to their doorstep. Well aware of what they must do to win her hand and her heart, the brothers dedicate themselves to granting Roxanne every imaginable pleasure, driving her to sensual heights unlike any she has ever known.

With each new erotic encounter stirring a loving bond between the three, Roxanne is tempted to accept the promise of the tapestry and make a new life and new home with the brothers. But she has trusted before and been painfully wrong, and she’s frightened by the whisperings of the brothers’ violent past. Unsure of herself and threatened anew when her merciless ex finds his way to her once again, Roxanne must trust her heart as the brothers vow to protect her and destroy her ex–and to give her a life and love she had never dreamed possible…

Why did you write this book?

When I wrote the first book in this series–Christina’s Tapestry–I’d intended it to be a standalone title. But the world of Javara was so fascinating and the possibilities limitless, and I just kept on writing. The older Craddock brothers are villains in the earlier books. It made me stop and wonder about the younger brothers. This is their story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course.

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

That is so tough. I have so many characters from fiction that I love that I can’t choose just one. So let’s just say that one of my favorites is Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. She is one kickass heroine and her storyline has been carried over more than forty books. She’s grown and evolved through the series. I grab each new book when it’s released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a new paranormal series for Entangled. I’m quite excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m in the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology due out April 30th. My next Blood of the Drakon book–Drakon’s Knight–is releasing June 24th. And the next Tapestries book will be out in about three months.

Stressing Aaron Belton from Passionate Destiny @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance #paranormalromance #PNRLet’s meet Aaron Belton from Passionate Destiny, a paranormal erotic romance, by Dee S Knight. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your latest book.

Passionate Destiny by Dee S Knight

Genre Paranormal erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Margaret Amis-Hollings moves to an old house in Virginia, never suspecting a ghost has first dibs. Soon her life is intertwined with a soldier from long ago and with his descendant, Aaron. Living with a ghost is one thing. Dealing with Aaron is quite another. They share the present; they might share a past. Do they share a destiny?

Stressing Aaron Belton

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.
Please tell me about your hero.
Age: Mid-thirties
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Palmyra, Virginia
Profession: Former professor, now carpenter and historical restorer
Ethnicity: Southern gentleman
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):
What does your hero look like?
Eyes were the darkest blue, hair the deepest black, teeth the whitest white. And straight. Over 6 feet, muscular due to hard work and not a gym. Dimples.
Who is the significant other in his life?
Margaret Amis-Hollings, new owner of River Peace.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Relaxed backyard barbecue, with all the fixings and beer to drink. He likes smaller groups with close friends and easy conversation.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
He’ll spend some time playing with the children running around, stand around the grill with the guys and shoot the breeze, and later sprawl in a deck chair at the fire pit holding hands with Margaret. He’s casual and comfortable, but also ready to help out when needed.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He’ll mingle and mix. Even in more formal situations he wouldn’t be allof. He’s very comfortable with who he is.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
Beer. And not a fancy foreign brand. He’ll try a local microbrewery, but his usual choice is simply a Sam Adams or a Bud.
How much drink is his usual?
Aaron cares too much for family and friends to drink much. He’d never take a chance on hurting anyone through word or action by drinking too much. He might have a couple of beers but he’s just as happy with sweet tea.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
He wouldn’t go to hide or to avoid anyone. And he wouldn’t go to drag someone back. He might go to check to be sure they’re okay—and in the case of youngsters, to be sure they aren’t getting ready to make trouble. ;)
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He’s definitely the guy others migrate to. He’s intelligent and with a good sense of humor. Aaron is generally a really great guy but in his mind he’s just normal.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
He’ll break it up. If the fight is verbal, he’ll try to calm things down by changing the subject. If the fight is physical, he’s big enough and strong enough to step in and force the combatants apart. At the kinds of parties he attends, there are often children around. Aaron wouldn’t put up with bad behavior around his kids or Margaret.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He would definitely do the tossing.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
Nope, he’s a family man—and he was even before he met Margaret because he has parents and siblings nearby. He won’t stay late.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
He might be exasperated but he’ll be polite and rational. He’s a scientist and engineer and staying calm and rational is part of his personality.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
He rushes to discover the cause.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
Stopping the brutality.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
He won’t hesitate to stop one person assaulting another. And if it’s a woman—or certainly a child—bearing the brunt of someone else’s anger, he’s likely to be a bit forceful when stopping the assaulter. Just to be sure he (she) stops acting badly, you understand.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Aaron doesn’t just fight with his fists, he fights with his intelligence, too. So first he makes sure the person he’s tried to rescue is away. Then he might try a fast escape himself. He’s no fool. Staying to fight a battle he can’t win if the first victim is gone, if not smart.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?
He’s polite but not friendly. If things go too far he’ll be a bit terse and as soon as he can he’ll escape the situation.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
Aaron isn’t one to jump in and undermine someone else. If he can he’ll speak to the younger person privately or he’ll deal with things as best he can without making a scene. On the other hand, he won’t be taken advantage of by being in an awkward situation. If things pass the point of politeness, he’ll excuse himself.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
“It’s all mind over matter. Get the job done and then you can rest.”
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
“You can do whatever you have to do.”
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Aaron has lived a pretty charmed life. He hasn’t had many upsets and no disasters that teach the hard lessons. But he recognizes that not all things are equal or fair. He changed his life in order to help make things as fair as possible for his family and community.
What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?
He’s a really good guy. Margaret describes him as looking like Superman and he kind of fits the mold. There are some genuinely good people in the world, and Aaron is one of them. But he’s still fun and interesting. And sexy ;)

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Daniel Goodman is one of a set of triplets—natural, identical triplets, a rare kind of birth. He is a serious man, often feeling estranged from his wild and carefree brother Jonah and his free-spirited parents. He’s also distanced from his other brother Mark, a genius who might or might not realize that he’s unlike most other people and doesn’t seem to care.
Daniel is a man on a mission. For years he has striven for perfection, fighting for the pinnacle of achievement in his world of academia—Headmaster of Westover Academy. Westover, established before the American Revolution, is still one of the most prestigious schools in the country. They accept only boys whose parents fit a certain mold and only those teachers who hold to a stringent set of mores, on and off campus. Jonah considers his brother a prig. Daniel sees himself as doing his best to serve his students. How much better can he serve them as headmaster? That is what he seeks to find out.
Suddenly, into his cut and dried, strictly black and white life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Bad enough that she’s enrolled her son in Westover Academy under false pretenses. More, she runs the town’s most disreputable bar. Worse, much to Daniel’s dismay, he finds himself drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is, after all, a good man.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
As Dee S Knight and within erotic romance I write contemporary and paranormal. I’ve also written a couple of ménage space romps. I write under two different names also, one for sweeter romance and under the third name, all ménage, including historical and shifters.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I’ve often wondered how authors don’t come up with ideas. But the easiest way for me is to go for a drive and listen to country music. If I can’t come up with a new story idea doing those two things, I’m seriously out of it. 😉
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
The most important part is developing the idea, getting it organized in my mind. The hardest part is actually sitting at the keyboard and writing. I’m sure I’m not alone in that, but it’s greatly annoying. I’ve tried the software that allows me to talk but my brain didn’t play well with it.
When did you write your first book?…
It’s hard for me to imagine, but my first book, Impatient Passion, came out on Valentine’s Day 2003. I loved that book. The words just flowed (mainly because I didn’t really know what I was doing) and writing was easy. I formulated the idea, wrote it and submitted it in one month. I’d like to do that again!

Threads of Destiny by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #paranormalromanceNJ 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 your book.

Threads of Destiny by NJ Walters

Genre erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When a magical tapestry brought a beautiful and loving bride into his brother’s life, Marc Garen could not have been happier, even though he’d hoped to win her for himself. But lately his feelings of emptiness have threatened to overwhelm him, as their buoyant happiness is such a stark reminder of the loneliness that haunts his soul. Then a new tapestry appears and hurls him into a strange and violent world—and into the arms of a woman who has haunted his dreams and carries the promise of the love he so longs for.
Kathryn Piedmont is a brave and beautiful scientist, and she’s put her own life at risk to save two men who were part of a scientific experiment and are now marked for death. As the three find themselves trapped and facing certain execution, Kathryn is convinced their fate is sealed—until Marc, the ruggedly handsome warrior of her fantasies, suddenly appears in the flesh and magically transports them to safety.
With all of them now safe in Marc’s world, the three men in turn and together share Kathryn’s bed, each of them intent on satisfying her every sensual need—and each of them compelled to try to make her his own. But Marc knows that Kathryn is the one woman who can quiet the powerful stirrings in his body and his heart, and he will take her to incredible heights of pleasure to claim her for himself and make her his own for all time…

Meet Eve Star from Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romanceWelcome Eve Star from Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight, a new erotic romance.

Eve Star

Age: 30
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Chicago, IL
Profession: Manager of a bar
Ethnicity: American
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human
Please provide a physical description of your character.
5’10”, long, chestnut colored hair, it’s naturally wavy no matter what she does to it. She has brown eyes, and a nice figure—large breasts, full hips and very narrow waist. She’s been told by uncounted men that she’s beautiful and desirable, but she shrugs and says, “I’m just me.”
Please tell us a little about your character.
I left home early on. Never got a degree though I graduated from high school with good grades. Ended up stripping in order to pay rent and found that I kind of enjoyed it. Someone mentioned that money was better in Europe, so I scraped up enough to get myself to Berlin and started off. Before I knew it, I was a huge success, making more money than I could have imagined. I met a few men, too, but none like Luigi. He gave me a home in Florence and then he gave me a son. Then…he took everything but my son away. That’s how I ended up back in the States, managing a bar in small town New Hampshire. I’ll do whatever it takes to care for Timmy and to see that he gets the best I can afford.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Damn if I haven’t fallen for a teacher at the school where Timmy goes, Daniel Goodman. He’s a snob at times, and full of himself, but he’s really a reflection of his name: a good man. I love him fiercely, but he told me sup straight from the beginning, he needs a wife who can fit the role of headmaster’s wife, and that can never be me, not with my history. For now, I’ll take what I can get from him because, well, I love him.
How does your heroine dress?
She made a lot of money dancing in Europe and she didn’t skimp on clothing. So for work at the bar she wears tight jeans and an open collared blouse—better tips . When she takes Timmy to Westover Academy, she dresses in the classy and stylish clothes she brought from Paris and Milan.
How educated is this character? Is she book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
She has a high school diploma but didn’t go to college. She’s life-smart, having learned by hard work and not always in the best of conditions.
What is your character’s viewpoint on wealth? Not necessary, nice to have, important, obtain at all costs?
The man she thought loved her in Italy was wealthy and he treated her to a beautiful house, jewels, fine food—everything she might have wanted. But when he kicked her out for getting pregnant, she discovered true wealth is only good when it provides for and protects those you love. Now she’s happy with what she has: enough money to pay for her son’s schooling and live reasonably well. She’s happy with that.
What special skills does your character rely on?
She knows people, can read them. And she’s very persuasive. She has a clever mind—she tells Daniel that she thinks through chess moves five and six ahead, so she’s strategic and uses that to her advantage.
What is your character’s family like?
Is she close to family?
She is not close to her mother. There’s no word about her father. But she has her child, Timmy, and that’s all the family she needs. All she’s likely to have since Daniel has made it clear that they’re friends with benefits only. She knows she could call on him if she needed help, but is he family? No. Not that she doesn’t dream…
Does she have children?
A son, Timothy Knowles. Knowles is Eve’s real name—Lauren Knowles—but she’s used her stage name for so long, it feels like who she is. Timmy is six and attends Westover Academy as a residential student. Eve has recently become afraid that if she keeps him home she’ll hover too much. But she longs for the weekends when she can pick him up and spend time together.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Eve definitely sees shades of gray. She doesn’t consider herself a bad person because she lived with Luigi and eventually had his child. How could anything that gave her Timmy be bad? That doesn’t mean that she doesn’t recognize a mistake when she makes one. Like falling for Daniel, another man who might want her as a mistress but nothing more. How could she have been so foolish? But was their lovemaking immoral? No, not in her eyes.
If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would she most want it to be, and why? OR who would she most NOT want it to be, and why?
Eve truly would NOT want to see Luigi Donatello, Timmy’s father. If he showed up, it would only mean trouble. He made it clear when he tossed her aside that he was finished with her. His arrival back in her life would mean disaster for her and especially for Timmy.
Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
Absolutely! In her life away from Westover Academy, she is known as Eve Star. Anywhere around Westover she is the fairly well to do, Lauren Knowles. She wanted the best for Timmy, and to Eve, that means enrolling Timmy in Westover. For that to happen, she keeps two personas—and the secrets that go along with the subterfuge.
If your character could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
For Timmy to grow up in a household with two parents and lots of love.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Dee is used to writing about mostly happy characters. I’m not Unhappy, but I do have issues. I think that’s why she chose me to be her heroine. And she needed a more free-wheeling person to be Daniel’s foil. Gosh! I love Daniel! I’m so glad Dee chose me to be his great love.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
She has all these stories in her head. The woman thinks about plots and characters all the time! If I wanted to have a rational conversation with her it would be difficult because she’s always going off on plot tangents for a new book. She’s impossible!
What do you wish your writer would write next?
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Well, I didn’t meet Daniel’s brothers until the end of our book, but I think Dee should write about one of them next. Maybe *tapping finger on chin* Jonah.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thank you for giving me Daniel to love! He’s the best—a true good man—and I’ve never been so happy. Timmy has a real dad now.

Please provide a physical description of yourself.
6’1″, hazel eyes, hair trimmed short and neat, trim figure, clean-shaven, always impeccably dressed
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I teach buys at the prestigious Westover Academy, a preparatory school for boys in New Hampshire. I started there eight years ago after teaching elsewhere for four years and gaining my PhD. I’m bookish and not embarrassed about that. I love working with my charges, both the younger boys who live in my dorm and the older boys, whom I teach English literature. The pinnacle of my career would be to become headmaster of Westover, and that is my current goal and why I need a woman who can fit in to the school culture and help support my dream.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Sadly, my obsession is with a woman who cannot fit into the school culture and would never be accepted as my wife–should I reach my goal of becoming headmaster. She’s Eve Star, a former exotic dancer. Or, let’s call a spade a spade, a former stripper, well-known on the European stage.
If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
What is your birth order?

I’m one of a set of identical triplets. Mother never told us who was born first, middle, or last. Maybe because she didn’t really know herself.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Books. Always books.
Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.
As a child, my palate was simple–pinto beans and cornbread was great. Since dining at school I’ve come to appreciate a good roast. I understand that Eve makes an exceptional roast–I wonder if she would make one for me.
Tell us about your best friend.
My brothers, Mark and Jonah, were always my best friends. I stayed by myself a lot, though, losing myself in books. Here at school, my best friend on the faculty is Stan Baxter.
What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?
Great Britain because so much great literature and poetry emerged from there, and Italy because that’s where Eve lived for years. I’d like to see it through her eyes.
Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?
To live? Lucky Strike. It’s home and I have good memories of there, but people there think of me as one of the Goodman boys. I’ve worked hard to be my own man and I don’t want to be thought of as one of three again.
Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?
What literature teacher wouldn’t want to meet Shakespeare? But also Matthew Arnold because of his great poetry and his critical view on society and culture.
Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?
Sydney Thomas. Her father is an important man on the Westover Academy board and Sydney fancies herself my champion. She’s a nice woman but she makes it known that she has more than a casual interest in me. It’s annoying because Sydney would make a perfect headmaster’s wife but Eve is driving me crazy with desire.
If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
The very early 17th century to view Shakespeare’s plays performed in the original Globe Theatre.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Revising the original storyline. It started years ago as a duo book with Vanessa Hart. She had been writing the part of Daniel’s twin brother, Jonah. When Vanessa gave her permission for me to continue the story alone, I had to fill in the parts she would have written. I also changed the twin story to triplets. There was quite a bit to do from a differing perspective, but I like the new direction.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
He’s the hero in the first book in The Good Man Series, a play on Daniel’s last name, Goodman. I like him–I can identify with him, having taught boys for a good number of years myself.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
How good a man he is. I mean, he can be a snob, but in his heart, he’s good. I like him!
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Yes, Jonah and Mark each get their own books. Jonah is a mechanic who gets a second chance at love–if he doesn’t screw things up again!–and Mark is a true genius who doesn’t recognize that the best thing in his life is before his very eyes.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?
Hmmm… I’ve written futuristic, sweet (under a different name), ménage, and paranormal, so I’m not sure. I do have in mind a series that’s sweeter than The Good Man Series and will be written when I end with the Goodmans.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
That I look like a sweet grandma who knows nothing about erotic romance. So untrue! ;)
Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
The story itself is good–it’s not all sex, though Daniel has healthy male appetites. Reviews have been wonderful and I think the believable characters will draw readers in. That was my goal, anyway!
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?
I love all of you! Thank you for inviting me into your reading world! And thank you, Kayelle for this opportunity!

A few years ago, Dee S Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility.
