Arctic Bite by NJ Walters
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Being immortal doesn’t mean you can’t die. It just means you’re damn hard to kill.
When Alexei Medvedev joined the Forgotten Brotherhood–paranormals hired to assassinate other paranormals–he knew it wouldn’t be a cake walk. But his next target is one of Death’s own Reapers gone rogue. For the first time since he started this gig, “damn hard to kill” feels more like “damn near impossible.”
Tracking Cassie Dobbs brings him to a remote bar in small-town Alaska, where this hot-as-hell Reaper is casually serving drinks, as if she doesn’t have a bounty on her head from Death himself. Alexei is dangerously intrigued. Everyone in the Brotherhood knows the first rule: don’t fall for your target.
But Alexei soon has bigger problems to face than an unexpected attraction. They only send assassins after those who deserve to die…or so he’s been made to believe. Now that he’s met Cassie, though, he’s not so sure.
What if everything he’s been told is a lie, and the person he’s been sent to kill is the only one who knows the truth?
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I don’t dine out for dinner. I’m a morning person and I enjoy breakfast. Usually a couple of times a week I’ll take myself out to the local A&W for breakfast. I love it.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
There are so many. How can I choose just one? One of my all-time favorites is Rhage from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. How can you not love a vampire who can shift into a huge dragon who eats his enemies? And the way he loves his mate, Mary, is the stuff of legends.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I have two kinds of perfect vacations.
The first would be in a cabin by a beach (the rocky/beachcombing kind and not sandy) with a stack of books, a journal, and lots of great food, including plenty of chocolate.
The second is an “event” trip. I’ve done several and they’re so much fun. One included a day and night in Niagara Falls followed by three days in Toronto which included a hockey game, Bat Out of Hell the musical, and a day at the ROM (Royal Ontario Art Museum) to see the Guillermo del Toro exhibition. I also snuck in a trip to Kensington Market and a stop at Sweet Jesus ice cream.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance, of course. I love all genres. Depending on my mood I’ll read contemporary, historical, romantic suspense, or paranormal. If it’s nonfiction, it tends to be more in the spiritual/self-help genre.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
It would have to be Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” since the heroine is an actual Reaper. Everyone else might fear Cassie, but not Alexei.
