Read the new SciFi Romance Flynn's Assassin by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceNJ 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.

Flynn’s Assassin by NJ Walters

Genre Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When mercenary and space trader Flynn Marks is approached by a woman in a seedy bar, he assumes she’s not just looking for a good time. He’s made enemies over the course of his life. With his family finally safe and settled, he’ll handle this latest threat on his own.

Cerena Phelps has been tasked with killing a man if she ever wants to see her teenage son again. While she’s no stranger to fights–being a woman bouncer is a tough job–she’s never killed a man. Her plan? Lure Flynn away from the bar, seduce him, and kill him when his guard is down. Not a hardship given her unexpected and intense sexual attraction for her target. When her attempt on Flynn’s life fails, they must learn to trust each other if they both hope to survive and rescue her son.

Describe the perfect vacation.

I love the beach! And not a sandy, sunny beach, but a rocky one filled with shells, driftwood, and treasures washed up by the waves. I have a small collection of beach glass I’ve gathered over the years. I love interesting rocks and shells. After a day beachcombing, I’d love to sit around a campfire and watch the night sky. And on bad weather days, I’d curl up with a good book or two.

What are your hobbies?

I love to read. No surprise there. I also enjoy going to movies. I’ll see over thirty a year in the theatre. I enjoy going to the afternoon shows when it’s quieter. I love a good yard sale or thrift store. It’s the search for that next “treasure.” Not necessarily anything worth money, but something I’ll love.

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

I read a lot of romance over different genres–contemporary, paranormal, futuristic, historical, suspense. It all depends on my mood. I like to mix it up. I also read nonfiction, some work related, but much of it is spiritual and personal growth books.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

That always depends on what I’m writing. Sometimes I’ll read nonfiction books to learn more about a place or a skill. I’ve used maps and guide books to become better acquainted with other counties and settings. I’ve used Google Maps to “walk” the streets of a city where I set a book. I’ve watched many YouTube videos. You can find almost anything you need online.

For example, when I wanted to research the Trans-Siberian Railway I viewed many YouTube videos posted by people who took the train trip. I wanted to see what the trains looked like and how they were broken down by class. I also bought a Russian guidebook (much like the one the heroine uses in the book) for language and travel information. I used all that information and more in Drakon’s Tear.

In a book like Flynn’s Assassin, which is futuristic, much of it came from my imagination. I have to be careful when creating worlds to stay consistent. It’s so much fun but a lot of work as I have to make notes about everything.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Flynn Marks is a dangerous space mercenary, so his ringtone would have to be badass. I’m thinking “Wrong Side of Heaven” by Five Finger Death Punch.

QUICK

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

I love to write all kinds of romance–paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy. It’s fun and challenging to switch up genres, but I always write romance with a HEA.

How do you come up with ideas?

Ideas come from everywhere–a snippet of conversation, an online article, a movie or television show. Sometimes ideas seem to pop in my mind from out of nowhere. That’s the fun of being a writer.

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

The characters. Everything begins and ends with them. They tell me their stories.

When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book back in 1995, but my first book wasn’t published until October 27, 2004. That book was Annabelle Lee, which is available today as Uncovering Annabelle. I just celebrated my 15th year as a published author. It’s been a blast. I look forward to the next fifteen years.

Unexpected Angel by NJ Walters

Genre Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Angelina Astoferus is on the run from her uncle, who wants to marry her off as part of a business deal. Her only hope is to find a spaceship to escape on–and a man willing to take her virginity, since her being pure is part of the deal. A desperate escape attempt leads her to the loading docks of the planet Oasis, where she spies Amos. Captivated by him, when the opportunity to sneak on board his ship arises, she takes it.
When Amos Marks discovers a stowaway on his ship, he knows she is big trouble. He and his brothers don’t need two dangerous enemies–her powerful uncle and the jilted warrior from Gravas–but Amos can’t turn his back on her. He decides to help her with her outlandish plan, but neither of them expects that the physical connection between them will lead to so much more.

How long have you been writing?

My first book was published October 27, 2004. Hard to believe it’s been almost 15 years. The industry, and my writing, has changed so much in that time.

What was your first published book?

My very first published book was Annabelle Lee with Ellora’s Cave. That was back when ebooks weren’t considered “real” books by the New York publishing houses and long before Amazon became a powerhouse in the industry. Amazing how much the world has changed since then.

I was so excited when they accepted my book. They wanted me to add about 10K to the story. I told them it was no problem. Then I panicked and went to work. It changed my life.

The book went out of publication for a couple of years after the publisher closed, but it has been released as Uncovering Annabelle.

Tell us about your writing space or home office.

I’ve written all but two of my books in a small 3′ by 6′ corner of my living room. I have a small desk, a desktop computer, and a small shelf. That’s my writing cave. The computer isn’t online. When I sit there, all I do is write.

What do you love most about that area?Do It Write: Where NJ Walters writes @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFiRomance

Oddly enough, I love how small it is. I like being cozy. I like that everything is close at hand. There’s wall on two sides of the space and a privacy screen around the front and part of other side. It really is a writing cave.

If money was no object, what would your home office look like?

Honestly, if money was no option I’d own a house, maybe something 800 to 1000 square feet. (Which is much bigger than my current apartment.) I’d love a small office with floor to ceiling bookshelves on at least two of the walls for my books and personal mementos. I’d have my desk beside a window overlooking a yard. I’d also have a cozy reading area in front of the shelves where I could relax or work on research and notes.

What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?

I’m a bit of a technophobe, so I’m not big on electronics. Other than my desktop computer, I’d say I use my iPad mini the most. I use it mostly in the evenings when I’m curled up on the sofa for checking email or social media. I’ll even watch TV shows and YouTube videos on it.

What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?

There are so many great books on writing. Some are purely technical while others are more inspirational. I’d tell any new author to check out what’s in their local library and local bookstore to get a feel for what’s out there. Stephen King’s On Writing and Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird are both go-to books for most writers and a great starting point.

What do you like to read for relaxation?

I love to read romance, of course–historical, contemporary, romantic suspense, and paranormal. I also love to read nonfiction books. A lot of self help, personal growth types of books. I figure it’s good to balance things out.

Introducing Jericho Drake from Drakon's Knight, by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Jericho Drake from Drakon’s Knight, a paranormal romance, by NJ 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 the story your author wrote.

Drakon’s Knight by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance/Dragon shifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple plan: Kill the leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his target, Karina Azarov, she can’t remember who she is. Worst of all––he can’t kill her. His dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.
Karina has no idea why these Drakon’s have taken her to their home. And she most certainly does not understand why she’s so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he’s strong, intelligent, and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he’s not going to hurt her. If only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these Drakon’s hate her so much.
But if her memory returns, mated or not, he may get his war.. And one of them will die.

Introducing Jericho Drake

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A place that no longer exists
Profession: Assassin and Real Estate Mogul
Ethnicity:
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
What do you look like?
In my human, form I’m 6’10” with jet black hair and black eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern in red outlined in black. The red signifies I’m a fire drakon. The black is the same color of my eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Karina Azarov. Touch her and it will be the last thing you ever do.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I’ve lived a very, very long time. Whatever I need to learn I’ve taught myself or found someone to teach me. Drakons have phenomenal memories. That’s made it easier to adapt and change with the times.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve slept on the hot desert sands and eaten figs. I’ve stayed in 5-star hotels and in the palaces of kings. And I’ve enjoyed both experiences. I have homes all over the world and plenty of money, but I could live without any of it. It’s easy to make money. It’s the people I care about who are important. Okay, and my custom Harley. I do love my bike. It’s the closest thing there is to flying without having to unleash my wings.
What is your family like?
I have four half brothers I’ve never met and three men I’ve called brothers my entire life. We may not be related by blood, but they’re my family. I would die for them.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a drakon. Of course I can keep a secret. It’s what we do, who we are. Not many people know about us and we like to keep it that way.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For years, I wondered why my half brothers didn’t bother to look for me. I mean, they found one another but not me. First I was hurt. Then I was angry. Took me a few thousand years—okay four thousand—to get past it. I decided it was finally time to meet them. I concocted this entire elaborate plan. I was going to kill our greatest enemy and toss that in their face. Yeah, that plan didn’t exactly go as I thought it would.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You couldn’t make it easy, could you? After all my years of waiting, my fated mate had to be my greatest enemy. Only she can’t remember anything about her life. It messed me up for a while. I guess you had your reasons. And since I’m happy with the way things turned out, I’ll let you live.

Embroidered Fantasies, a Romance by by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #romanceNJ 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.

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.

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…
