Read the series: Arresting Onyx by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspense

In the world of Onyx, take nothing for granted. Amber Daulton’s gritty romantic suspense series, Arresting Onyx, will draw you deep into the dangers and desires of seven couples determined to survive. Amber, 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 series.

Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.

Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.

When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?

Which book is this in the series?

This is book one in the gritty urban romantic suspense series, Arresting Onyx.

How many books do you plan for the series?

There will be five full-length novels and two novellas.

How many books are completed?

All the books are completed, but the later ones are awaiting professional editing and publication. I plan to publish them a few months apart from each other starting this winter.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Each book features a new main couple. All the couples are connected through blood, friendship, and circumstance.

Mia and Mason star in Arresting Mason, and her brother, Jim, is the hero in the second book, Arresting Jeremiah. Mia’s friend, Chanel, stars in the novella, Ryan’s Temptation, which will be coming out soon.

What is the overall theme in this series?

The gang Onyx controls the drug flow in the city, and each couple must contend with and survive their detour into the criminal underworld. Some of the couples, however, plunge headfirst into danger while others just graze the surface. That doesn’t matter to the villains they butt heads with. To the bad guys, everyone not on their side needs to be silenced, permanently.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Arresting Mason (novel, now available)
Arresting Jeremiah (novel, now available)
Ryan’s Temptation (novella, To Be Released in December 2021 via the “Into the Fire” box set)
Arresting Benjamin (novel, TBR)
Trevor’s Redemption (tentatively titled novella, TBR)
Arresting Alan (novel, TBR)
Arresting Bristol (novel, TBR)

What did you like best about writing this series?

The camaraderie between the characters, especially the men and their bromances. Each book introduced a pair of flawed, three-dimensional heroes and heroines who I sometimes think of as real people. To me, they are real because I’ve worked with them and talked with them for so long. I’ve been writing, editing, tearing apart, and rewriting this series since 2013, so I’m more than familiar with the characters and all their little nuances.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I’ve written several standalone novellas, including Lyrical Embrace and Harmony’s Embrace, which can be found in the multi-author published Deerbourne Inn series.

Where can we find links for all your books?

Writing is the fruit of happiness.
Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn’t so Zen.
As a fan of contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter, and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. She probably wouldn’t be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what’s a girl to do when people are jabbering away in her head and it’s hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.

Meet Mason Harding from Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome Mason from Arresting Mason, a new romantic suspense by Amber Daulton.

Introducing Mason Harding

Age: 29
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Aurora, Colorado
Profession: Mechanic
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
Mason has dark brown spiky hair, emerald-green eyes, and a tan from his job. He’s six feet tall, muscled and tattooed, and a few old scars cover his chest.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Mason made some foolish mistakes as a teenager, and then ended up in jail. Though he joined a prison gang, he gave it up after the State released him on parole. He’s doing his best stay out of trouble, but the people from his past aren’t ready to let him go.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Mia Eddison is a feisty boutique owner who sees past Mason’s hard, cocky shell for the kind, vulnerable man he is inside.
How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Mason dropped out of high school but earned his GED in prison. He used a lot of his spare time to read law books and literary classics in the prison library. Though he doesn’t have much formal education, he’s self-taught and highly intelligent.
What special skills does your character rely on?
Mason knows how to fight, and that comes in handy for him when he and Mia are in trouble.
What is your character’s family like?
Mason has an overprotective older brother, Alan, who is determined to make Mason walk a straight and narrow line. He has a young nephew who is absolutely adorable, and a former brother-in-law whom he considers a close friend. He’s not close with his parents, but Mia and Alan are trying to get him to reconcile with his mom.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Shades of gray. He’s made too many mistakes and done too many bad things to see the world as straight forward as black-and-white.
How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?
Most women find him hot and only care about the exterior packaging, and most men find him shady or dangerous. These assumptions are correct. Mason is one sexy man, and he’s hiding a bunch of secrets that could cost him his life. Deep down, however, he’s a good man and determined to do everything in his power to protect those he loves from his past.
Does your character care about those assumptions?
No. Mason doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him, except for Mia and his brother. He wants them to think of him as a good person.
What is your hero’s biggest personal flaw?
His temper. Mason gets angry way too quick and says things he regrets.
What is your hero’s breaking point?
Mason wants to live his life under the radar from cops and criminals alike, but when Mia’s life is threatened, he reverts to his old ways to save her. He would do anything for her, no matter the price to his own soul.

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?
Because I’m sexy. No, not buyin’ that? All right, well, let’s see. I think my writer, Amber, chose to write about me because everyone deserves a second chance at life and to right their wrongs. I’ve made mistakes, I’ll be the first to admit it, and Amber wanted to show my redemption. I can’t thank her enough for it.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
That’s a loaded question. Though I like Amber a lot, she deserves a spanking for revealing all the crap I’ve been through, but the main thing I wish she would’ve kept just between us is the incident in the shower room. I was still in prison at the time, and a few pricks attacked me. Though I managed to fight them off before they got what they wanted from me, it was the most humiliating experience of my life, and not something I wanted blasted all over the Internet. But since you can read about it in my book, I guess I’m all right with telling ya about it here.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
Amber loves writing about me and Mia, either when we’re in the bedroom or just having dinner together. She’s a hopeless romantic. Each time she would write about my past, however, she would cry a little, and I know it hurt her to share my secrets.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Jim Borden, Mia’s arrogant brother and my parole officer, needs a lady love to knock him down a few pegs, and I would love to read that story! My brother, Alan, deserves a story too. He’s raising his son alone after his ex-wife skipped town, and I would do anything to see Alan happy with a good woman at his side.
Listen up, and I’ll let you in on a little secret. Amber is one smart cookie, and she’s already hard at work editing Jim’s and Alan’s stories. Just wait. They’re going to be great!

Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.

When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
Why did you write this book?
I originally wrote this book for a bad boy anthology call, but by the time I was done, I had exceeded the max word count and still wanted to add more scenes. So I forgot all about the anthology and kept revising this story until I was finally happy with it. It’s now book one in the Arresting Onyx series.
For how I came up with the plot, I must thank my subconscious since I dreamed about it. For days after, I kept thinking about the hero, the heroine, and her brother, and the characters wouldn’t leave me in peace until I wrote out a rough plotline. Though I changed quite a bit as I put the dream down on paper (or rather computer), the main premise remained the same.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love to read almost every type of romance book, but my favorite sub-genre is tied between romantic suspense and paranormal, with historical at a close second. Outside of romance, I enjoy non-fiction history books and textbooks, preferably when the subject is about Greece or the Roman Empire.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, and I absolutely love Acheron. He’s my all-time favorite book character.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently editing the second book in the Arresting Onyx series (it should be out next year – hopefully!), and then I’ll move on the other books in the series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Arresting Mason is the only book I have coming out for a while, but I have several books in my backlist that I’m always promoting. Who knows. Maybe I’ll run across another anthology call and actually keep to the word count this time!
