Linked by Deception by Jami Gray

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When it comes to the relationship game, she’s learned her lesson well…

With her ability to weave illusions, Jinx Thorne grew up running successful cons with her grifter father, until the day he taught her how easy it is to deceive those you love. Armed with that hard-earned wisdom, she retreats behind her emotional walls determined to avoid a repeat lesson. When she’s partnered with the seductively charming Rabbit, his friendship does the impossible, eroding her defenses and leaving her on shaky ground.

With his patience at an end, he’s about to change the rules…

As the PSY-IV Team’s tech wizard, Rabbit Tessier can manipulate all things electronic, yet that’s not his only area of expertise. As an acknowledged flirt, he enjoys his role as the team’s heart-breaker, but after he’s partnered with the intoxicating queen of illusions that satisfaction wans and he’s done playing games.  As they undertake a dangerous mission where things could go sideways in a blink, he’ll take the biggest gamble of all and lay his cards on the table.

When the mission forces them to play intimate criminal partners, will they risk the jump from illusion to truth as they race through a maze of conspiracies and lies before the clock runs out?

QUICK

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

I do actually. My first love is Urban Fantasy, but like a truly enamored stalker, Paranormal Romance is right on its heels. I enjoy working with PSY-IV Teams as it’s fun to mix romance and paranormal abilities to see what shakes out, but this year I’m working on a new Urban Fantasy series because I need a break from the emotional roller coaster that happens when romance is the main story.

And because I love dystopian themes, I tried my hand at a Dystopian Romantic Suspense series that somehow keeps getting put into Post-Apocalyptic Romance, which I’m okay with. Who doesn’t like the idea of love in the time of Mad Max?

How do you come up with ideas?…

I’m one of those writers who comes up with a character first  so my stories tend to emerge from there. I love gray characters, like the gunslingers of the old west who swagger just on the side of right. When your character has flaws, it gives you a deep pool of possibilities to play with. When I started the PSY-IV Teams, I was binging on military themed romance (one of my favorites) and I kept wondering what happened if you blended those elements with unique and unusual paranormal abilities? By their nature these men and women carry a deep-seated need to protect others, but what happens when that protection comes at a high cost? I really get a kick out of putting my characters through the wringer.

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

Creating characters my readers can connect with. I grew up writing in roles from my favorite stories for me (which explains the minor in theater) because reading was my escape. My hope is that I’m able to provide that same creative escape for those on the other end of the page.

When did you write your first book?…

You mean the one that will never, never, never see the light of day? Fourteen. I actually spent all four years of high school writing my first book. It was close to two hundred pages—handwritten and typed on an actual typewriter (I know I’m dating myself). I still have those pages and took them out during one of my writer retreats to share with my crew of ink slingers. Mortification was off set by much laughter, but it was freakin’ hilarious.

FUN

Leather or lace? Oh definitely leather, even though it chaps. Lace itches.

Black or red? Black, it goes with everything and doesn’t show dirt (or blood)

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton. Satin tends to turn into Slip-N-Slide.

Ocean or mountains? Mountains for sure. But if you asked my other half, he’d push for ocean. Makes our discussion on future living locations fun.

City life or country life? Hmm…I’m going to have to do country as I tend to be a homebody.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, preferably with a good book and/or my Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor.

Dogs or cats? Dogs, most definitely dogs. I have a starter kit of two right now, both fur rugs are labs–one white, one black. I adore my Fur Minxes.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

Death and chaos can devastate even the best-laid plans…

As the leader of the Amanusa, Natasha Bertoi thrives on chaos, but when tragedy strikes the Northwest Kyn, leaving bodies and betrayal in its wake, not even she is prepared for the fallout. With the Northwest houses in an uproar, and the Wraiths hungry for blood, all her carefully laid plans are put to the test as she wards off the greedy clutches of the ruling Kyn Council. Her plans and pawns are moving along nicely, until he disrupts the game.

A dangerous attraction lures the two predators into a deadly game, where one wrong move could destroy all that Natasha holds dear.

Read Beg for Mercy by Jami Gray @jamigrayauthor #RLFblog #postapocalyptic #romance

Jami Gray, 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.

Beg for Mercy by Jami Gray

Genre Post-apocalyptic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Choosing a side has never been so dangerous…

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.

An assassin by trade, a loner by nature, Mercy is sent to infiltrate the Cartels and unmask the identity of their new silent partner. Instead, she discovers a darker plan threatening to crumble the entire Southwest and ends up with a hefty bounty on her head. Still, she’s determined to stop the impending attack at any costs, even if it means partnering up with a member of the notorious Fate’s Vultures.

After enduring a brutal, blood-soaked lesson on the savagery of civilization’s scavengers, Havoc is well acquainted with the consequences of battling predators. But as a member of the nomadic band of arbitrators known as Fate’s Vultures, he’s determined to cement the necessary allies to oust the biggest threat looming on the horizon. When an enigmatic woman crosses his path, her secrets and troubling loyalty light the fuse on an unexpected craving and his insatiable curiosity.

In order to trap a common foe and derail an impending threat, Havoc and Mercy must turn the tables to hunt a predator. Can an assassin and a mercenary find their balance on the thin line of loyalty, or will it snap under the weight of their wary hearts?

Shadow’s Edge by Jami Gray

Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters…
It takes a monster to hunt one, and Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, is the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural shares a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and suggests someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking.
Partnering with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be as challenging and dangerous as the prey she hunts. When the trail leads back to the foundation, which warped Raine’s magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head.
Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder, and betrayal, to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.
