New paranormal book Arctic Bite by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #PNRNJ 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.

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.

Read the new Paranormal Romance Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #PNRNJ 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 Fury Unleashed.

Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters

Genre PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky–but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer–that’s definitely too good to be true–she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve been thinking about these characters for quite some time. It all started when I wondered who you’d call if a paranormal creature got out of control. Not like regular law enforcement could handle it. And if they were really bad, you’d need someone just as dark and deadly to deal with them. That lead me to the Forgotten Brotherhood–paranormal assassins–misfits who have no place in the world. They exist in the shadows, doing the dirty jobs no one else can or will do.

Maccus came to me first–a fallen angel who’d been cast into Hell and fought his way out. All he wants is peace, but there is a dark side to him that needs to be managed, so he does it in the most productive way possible–he’s an assassin. He’s not the monster under the bed, he’s the one you call to kill the monster under the bed. He’s so fierce both Heaven and Hell fear him.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance is my favorite genre to read. Depending on my mood, I’ll read contemporary, paranormal, romantic suspense, historical, or sci-fi/fantasy. There are so many great books to choose from.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s an impossible question to answer. There are so many I love. 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 fifty 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 the next Forgotten Brotherhood book–Arctic Bite.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

There are more Forgotten Brotherhood books coming. After that, who knows?

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.

Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati @NaughtyLiterati #RLFblog #NewRelease #militaryromance 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 new Naughty Literati book.

Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati

Genre Contemporary Military Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marine On A Mission
NJ Walters

When Mitch McCoy left rural Kentucky to join the U.S. Marines he never thought he’d return. Now he’s undercover with a state drug task force. He’s not only facing his past, but also Sara Hawkins, the woman who broke his heart. This investigation will risk their lives and their hearts.

Sex Bomb
Nicole Austin

From first sight I knew Marine Lieutenant Harlie Savage wasn’t fragile like a flower—she was fragile like a bomb. Definitely not some princess who needed to be saved, either. She was a queen who only lacked a sword, and I vowed to be her weapon.

Her Soldier Of Fortune
Belle Scarlett

Leia has no idea who ex-Marine Major Tate McIntyre is when he saves her life in a dark alley. Yet Tate’s certain Leia is his to have, hold, and protect. He vows to keep her safe at any cost. His only price is her heart. Semper Fi!

The Night Watchman
Katherine Kingston

A disabled vet rescues a woman on a mission to collect evidence, saving her from the men chasing her. As Jace and Shannon race to survive and outwit a traitor, a deep connection grows between them. But staying alive long enough to explore the attraction will take everything they’ve got.

Military Blues
Elizabeth Lapthorne

Luke is struggling to recover from a career shattering IED blast that sees him permanently discharged. Milly’s career self-destructed and she’s moved cities in the hopes of starting again. Can this new life and new relationship be a second chance for them both?

Why did you write this book?

I’m thrilled to be approached to be a part of this boxed set with the other members of the Naughty Literati. Military men and women lend themselves to romance novels. I had such fun writing Marine on a Mission, a action-packed, sexy novella. And you can pre-order it for the special price of 99-cents. Price will go up after release.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course. Within the genre, I love to read contemporary, romantic suspense, historical, paranormal, and even some fantasy. One of the things I love about the genre—it has something for everyone.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

It’s pretty much impossible to pick just one character. I have so many favorites. One of my favorite couples has to be Eve Dallas and Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. They are seriously badass, but far from perfect. Watching the evolution of their relationship over so many books has been a wonderful journey. I grab these books as soon as they’re released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a new paranormal series for one of my publishers. Should have several books in the series releasing in 2020. I’m really excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

As I said, you’ll see two, possibly three books in a new paranormal series releasing in 2020. (More details when I get the final blurbs and dates.) I’m also part of the Naughty Temptations: Collection Four releasing in February. That contains two novellas that have been unavailable for some time. That’s all I have nailed down for now.

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.
