An Uncommon Love (Romantic Realms Collection 2) by MJ Schiller

Princess Adriana had her life all figured out…
Or, to be more precise, she had her life all figured out for her. Before she was even born she was betrothed to Garin, and that was perfectly acceptable as he became her childhood friend, and then, eventually, the person she would swap kisses with inside the palace gardens. She never questioned it, never had a reason to, until the day a commoner was brought before her father, the King, to be punished.
…until the day her eyes conncected with blacksmith Seth Hobb’s across a stone courtyard.
When he creeps into the castle at night to thank her for freeing him, they begin to build a relationship with one another that is often as explosive as it is endearing. But fate ends up separating the two and they must undertake a long and arduous journey to be reunited.
But with everything against them, can an uncommon love like theirs survive?
Even then, can Adriana make Seth see her for herself and not as the princess he imagines? And if she does, will she ever be able to convince her father that, despite his objections over Seth being a commoner, there is nothing “common” about him at all?

Dangerous Addictions by Naomi BellinaWant some free books? Nab a few good reads on #FreeBookFriday Naomi Bellina #RLFblog

With the aid of an inexplicable but opportune super-power, he’s determined to conquer any hurdles to gain back his freedom. Except one hot mess of an obstacle he can’t get around.
A terrorist attack poisons the water and leaves hundreds of thousands of Americans dead. Countless more are left with diminished brain function. As the government seizes control, order is restored in the country but freedom is taken away. A nation is quarantined, all citizens regulated to stay within the borders.
For Riley, a genius hacker, that lack of freedom, particularly travel restriction, is not acceptable. When he suddenly develops a bad-ass power and learns he can manipulate electricity, he sets out to use that power to gain back control. The discovery of a murder forces Riley to team up with Danika, an enigmatic woman with her own freaky power and scary secrets. When they find that the dead scientist was working on a machine to uncover more people with superpowers, the adventure begins as they attempt to track the device.
Death and danger shadow the pair as they travel to the waterways of Florida, the mountains of Colorado and places in between. With each of them following their own agenda but compelled to work together, they search for answers in a world shaped by devastation, and discover love, and buried pieces of themselves along the way.

Guest Post with Naomi Bellina

Do werewolves get old?
One of the best parts about reading
paranormal books is seeing how each author creates her world. You have to make
rules for your kingdom, then stick with them. Supernatural beings can have many
characteristics. How can they be killed? What are their weaknesses? Their
strengths? Do they live forever?  I want
my were-creatures to age. Yes, they live longer, healthier lives than humans
but they do grow old. And it sucks! That’s one of the themes I had big fun
playing with in Sins of Long Ago.
Imagine you’re an alpha werewolf,
used to being in charge, to getting what and who you want. One day, you start
to notice lines on your face that weren’t there yesterday. You move a little
slower in a fight, want to come in sooner from a moon run. You’re aging, like you
knew you would, and like us regular old mortals, you start to think about
serious shit. The fun and games of youth are over and your thoughts turn to the
future. To family, friends, and maybe leaving behind some kind of legacy.
I had a challenge with one
particular scene in Sins. My editor
asked me to change it, because it made Vincent, my hero, look kind of sleazy.
The scene is important because it helps show his vulnerability when he’s
treated differently than he expects, due to his “mature” nature. I rose
to the challenge and came up with a great compromise that my editor and I both
loved. Vincent keeps his morals intact but I still got to make him suffer a
little at the hands of a wily woman.
I hope no matter what your age, you
enjoy reading Sins of Long Ago as
much as I enjoyed writing it.

About the Book

Title Sins of Long Ago
Genre Paranormal Romance
Author Naomi Bellina
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Werewolves and humans don’t mix.
Until danger forces an alliance and desire demands satisfaction.
Leading his pack of werewolves
keeps Vincent plenty busy, and now with a predator out to harm them, life is
more perilous than ever. The last thing he needs is a woman to complicate
matters, especially one who sets his body and soul on fire. She’s a human and a
witch — totally the wrong woman for him. Even if he could take a mate for his
own, he refuses to put her in the danger his life has become. No way can they
ever be together. Werewolf-style love is fine anyway. No permanent partner, no
bullshit, no heartache.
Genevieve has never known true
love. Cursed by an enraged woman long
ago, females in her family are doomed to go insane if they fall in love. Life
has been fine without a man around– until a hot werewolf drops in and captures
her heart. Though they have plenty of obstacles to overcome, Gen knows they can
work past them. Tell that to Vincent, as he struggles with old pack rules about
love, sex, and consorting with humans.
As Vincent searches for a killer,
deals with death among his own, and tries to keep his hands off Gen, she
attempts to end her family curse. Together, they must find a way to break free
from the sins of long ago.

Ruled by the Moon
by Naomi Bellina 

By Naomi Bellina

I’m minutes away from hopping on a plane leaving St. Louis Missouri.
I’ve been visiting my mom and sister and I’m waaaaaay past ready to go home. For
one thing, I’m freezing my butt off! Time to get back to Florida. I grew up in St.
Louis and I knew without a doubt, it was not the place I wanted to spend the rest
of my life. Now before you St. Louis dwellers start blasting me for picking on your
city, let me say, there are many wonderful features of this area. Fans love and
support their sport teams, for sure. St. Louis offers a wide variety of good food
and entertainment, a fantastic highway system, nearby wineries to make you drool
and the most beautiful autumns you’ll ever see.
But not for me. I longed for something more in whatever place
I lived. I can’t describe what that something was, but knew I’d recognize it when
I felt it. In Ruled by the Moon, magical people such as witches and werewolves are
drawn to Nocturne because of powerful ley lines that run through the area. I’ve
always been fascinated with ley lines so I did some research and found they could
very well be running through my fictitious Midwestern United States town. Check
out this Google
page for some great maps of ley lines. They’re everywhere! According to Wikipedia, ley lines are
“…supposed alignments of numerous places of geographical and historical interest,
such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops and water-fords.”
I believe they’re spots that contain certain kinds of power.
On this visit to St. Louis, I checked in to see if I could feel
energy from that strong line running through Missouri. Nope. At least not anything
I could pick up. Or maybe, the energy that flowed was exactly what I found unpleasant.
Maybe it affected me on some level I wasn’t even aware of. I live in Florida now
and though there are many qualities I love about this state (it’s soooooo much better
to be here in February), it’s still not quite my perfect home. I’ve always been
drawn to mountains and after a recent visit to Taos, New Mexico, would love to explore
that area. Maybe one day.
How about you? Do you have a place that resonates with your soul?
Thank you so much for visiting today.

About the Book

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A psychic vet, a secretive werewolf, a menace stalking the shifters.
Welcome to Nocturne.
Dylan is a werewolf with a problem. He shifts at the new moon
as well as at the full moon. He was born a werewolf, not made like most shape-changers
and due to these unique traits he’s avoided joining a pack and has given up hope
of having a normal life. Morgan is a veterinarian, ready to be on her own for a
good long time after leaving a cheating, spineless husband. She has a plan for her
life that doesn’t include a bossy, furry man.
Both are drawn to Nocturne, a town filled with magic due to a
strong convergence of ley lines in the area. Morgan and Dylan recognize a connection
when they meet, but neither one is looking for romance. After a harrowing encounter
with a panther shape-shifter, they must combine forces and work together to uncover
a menace that threatens the town. If they can learn to trust each other and let
their guard down, they have a chance to solve the mystery and open the door to love.

Don’t Say No 
I read a book some time ago that featured taggers, or graffiti
artists. I found the subject fascinating and had to do more research. According
to an article at the Center
for Problem-Oriented Policing
, there are four major types of graffiti, all problematic
and some gang related. Then there are other articles like this one at Smashing
Magazine
, that portray graffiti as art. Check out the examples they show here,
or these by female
street artists.
I wouldn’t mind having some of this artwork on the building
at my business.
If I did decide to decorate the outside of my shop, how would
I go about finding a graffiti artist? An Internet search brought up a Facebook page, a Tumblr page, and many
more sites all over the world. Not too many in my area, but I’m sure I could hunt
one down, possibly listing themselves as a mural artist.
Beautiful as it is, sometimes the pictures are done without permission.
In Don’t Say No, unwelcome graffiti is painted all over the outside of a spa on
grand opening day. Curse words, not beautiful pictures. My hero and heroine come
up with a creative solution to solve the problem.
Have you ever seen graffiti that you’d like painted on your walls?
Thanks so much for reading.

About the Book

Mixing business with pleasure has never been so much fun
Amber’s life sucks. Her ex got her thrown out of college, then
fired from her job. When she’s hired for a mystery shopping assignment, she hopes
this is exactly what she needs to kick-start her life and get her back on track.
Jaeger is all business when he hires Amber to check out the spa
he’s purchasing. If she can help him prove that the venture will be a success, then
he can build his own future, not the one his family has mapped out for him. Becoming
attracted to his sexy spy isn’t part of the plan.
Amber can’t see how she fits into Jaeger’s world, and he’s too
uptight to ever fit into hers. Circumstances bring them together, in bed and out,
but when a secret from his upper-class life is revealed, Amber must decide if she
can trust him. Or is her life going down in flames all over again?

Her Wild Protector 
There you are, on a tropical island, with a guy who practically
kidnapped you. He says he has a plan to protect you, and so far he’s done a good
job of keeping you safe from two men, one who turns into a cheetah and another who
becomes a panther. Oh, and both of them tried to kill you. This guy is sexy as hell
and the more you learn about him, the more you like him, but that doesn’t change
the fact that he’s irritatingly bossy. Throw in the minor problem that there are
killers after you and you have a pretty good reason to be off-the-charts stressed
out.
How about a session of Tai Chi? This non-aggressive form of martial
art has many benefits, including improved posture, better flexibility and what you
so desperately need, stress reduction. So when the hot guy (who looks even hotter
when he’s doing Tai Chi) suggests you join him in his workout, you agree. And surprise!
After forty minutes of moving through the forms, you’re calmer than you have been
for days.
Tai Chi is a great form of exercise. I’ve done it a few times
and wanted to learn a bit more for the scene in Her Wild Protector, where Marshall
and Tara engage in this activity. I thoroughly enjoyed doing the research. Here
are a few websites to check out if you want to see it in action:
A nice video on YouTube, showing a gold medal champion do The
24 Form:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejB-jBtZqqU
A very nicely put together video of a regular guy doing a Tai
Chi warm up. At least I’m assuming he’s a regular guy. He could actually be a marital
art master!
Watch Jet Li rock his Tai Chi in this movie clip
How about you? What’s your favorite way to reduce stress?

About the Book

Book Title: Her Wild Protector
Since waking up on the floor of her apartment after an electrical
shock, Tara has felt…different. Colors a little
off. Shadows where they shouldn’t be. But hot guys glowing blue light and a cheetah
drinking a cup of coffee? That’s not something you see every day. And why doesn’t
anyone else seem to notice?
The pillar of blue light is Marshall, a Metamorph—a human who
can change at will into an animal or energy form. His human form is damn fine-looking,
but that doesn’t mean he isn’t crazy, with his stories about belonging to a secret
government agency and rogue Metamorphs trying to kill her. Plus he wears sunglasses
indoors—who still does that? But when there’s a panther scratching at her door,
she has no choice but to trust Marshall,
even if it means her life will never be the same.

Her Wild Protector
If you’ve never watched someone do Tai Chi, grab the next opportunity
and check it out. It’s a beautiful, graceful martial art form that Merriam-Webster
defines as “an ancient Chinese discipline of meditative movements practiced
as a system of exercises.” In my story Her Wild Protector, Tara says it looks like yoga on barbiturates. She’s kind of
a smart ass!
Tai Chi can be done by just about anyone and while it looks like
nothing much is going on, it takes a fair amount of energy to perform. There are
many benefits to moving through the forms, such as improving posture and increasing
flexibility. There are plenty of good articles on the subject and here’s the link
for a gorgeous video on YouTube, showing a gold medal champion do The 24 Form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejB-jBtZqqU
I decided to have my hero, Marshall, practice Tai Chi for several
reasons. It relieves stress because it’s good exercise and it requires discipline
to practice regularly. Tai Chi is also sexy, in my opinion. It takes control and
slow, steady movements. I imagine all that power and energy used for…you know,
other purposes. Of course, I had to find a few more videos of good-looking guys
doing Tai Chi. *sigh* Research is rough sometimes.
In this one, a home-made clip, not only does the man show nice
form (to me, anyway), the snow, trees in the background and the hint of sun make
a nice video.
Last but not least, check out the trailer for Tai-Chi Master
with (yum) Jet Li. Though a lot of this movie is fighting, you can see a few seconds
of group Tai Chi being done. It’s mesmerizing!
