Spear’s Search, Assassins of Gravas series Book 1, by NJ Walters is available today. It’s the first book in an exciting new science fiction romance series Assassins of Gravas. NJ, 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.

Spear’s Search by NJ Walters

Genre Sci-Fi Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Spear el Gravaso–prince of Gravas and assassin–is on a mission to find his brother. His hunt had led him to an auction of Gravasian weapons that can only belong to the missing man. He needs to secure the items, get any information he can, and kill all those involved. Nothing and no one will stop him.

Sass was taken from a harsh life on the streets as a child and trained to be an assassin by the powerful Artemis. The lives of those she loves is on the line if she fails her mission–to win the auction of Gravasian tech. Only one problem–Spear is in her way.

Their battle escalates, as does the explosive heat between them. When it comes down to it, they can fight each other and one of them will die or they can join forces. But can they trust each other?

Why did you write this book?

When I finished the Marks Mercenaries series, I thought I was finished with the world I’d created, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the hero of Salvaging Abby–Vaden el Gravaso. In that book, I’d mention his family and that one of his brothers is an assassin. The world of Gravas is known for their deadly assassins. That got me to thinking about Spear and what his life might be like. One thing led to another and the result is Spear’s Search.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, obviously. I read a variety of subgenres: contemporary, historical, romantic suspense, paranormal, sci-fi. Basically, whatever takes my fancy.

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

That is so tough. There are so many wonderful characters I could probably list a couple dozen off the top of my head. I do love the Eve Dallas character from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. Following her over 50 books has been an incredible journey.

What are you working on at the moment?

Right now, I’m working on the next book in the Assassins of Gravas series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ll have more from the Assassins of Gravas series as well as the next book in my Forgotten Brotherhood series. Burning Ash, book 3 of the Forgotten Brotherhood series, is due out September 21st.

Read a new sweet SciFi: A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #MM #RLFblogI’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a new book. A Stolen Heart is my latest in the Antonello Brothers sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire.

A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves’ Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc’s immortal ex–the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Amber Daulton, author of Timeless Honor, a Time Travel Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Timeless Honor by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Jaye Ramsey decided to prove to her eccentric grandmother that time travel only existed in movies by vacationing in Bolivia with her friends. When she woke up in Hawksatter, England, 1735–the same town her grandmother supposedly vanished from as a young woman–Jaye found refuge at a hunting lodge but the strapping, reclusive baron who took her in reminded her all too well she was a lone woman at his mercy.

Accused of murdering his newly-wedded wife a decade earlier, Lord Lucas Kenway closed the family farm and shut out the world. He never expected the little spitfire he claimed responsibility for would turn his quiet life upside down. Pushed together by fate and his meddling servants, Lucas wanted Jaye on his own terms and refused to surrender his hardened heart.

Then a mysterious wise man offered Jaye a way home.

Should she return to the future and the only life she’d ever known, or stay in an uncertain past as a stranger in a new world?

Is it true:

This is your first book?

Nope. Timeless Honor is my sixth publication.

This book is part of a series?

Yes. It’s book three in the Mirrors of Time series, in which five authors each wrote a story. I enjoyed writing for this series so much that I wrote a second story, titled Timeless Beginnings, which is separate from the series but serves as a prequel for Timeless Honor. Both of my Timeless books are standalones.

You lost sleep while writing this book?

I always lose sleep when I’m writing. My mind just won’t shut down as I envision each scene and come up with dialogue.

You did do research for this book?

Oh, yes! Tons of research about the Salar de Uyuni (the salt flats in Bolivia) and about the Georgian era in England.

Some characters in this book are not human?

Most of my characters are human, expect for a few hunting dogs. I’m not sure how I would classify the mystical old wise man. He was supernatural, sure, but human? It’s hard to say.

This book has more than one genre?

True. It begins in modern day (a contemporary), but then the heroine travels through history (time travel) and winds up in the past (historical). So, technically, it fits into three sub-genres of romance.

You speak more than one language?

LOL! I wish.

You grew up where you live now?

True. I would love to move elsewhere, but my hubby and I have a good situation where we are.

You love to read?

Duh. I’m an author. Books and me? We’re tight.

You are never late?

Most of the time. Usually, I’m early.

You love pizza?

YES! With extra black olives, green peppers, and onion.

You love sushi?

Yes and no. No, as in I don’t like the food. Yes, as in I love and miss my departed cat Sushi with all my heart. She was such a sweet kitty and crossed the rainbow bridge about 12 years ago.

You have a pet?

I have two cats–Darby and Pepper–who are both 7 years old. I did have a third cat, Sox, but he passed away last month. He was only 3. I’m still grieving over Sox’s loss, but loving on Darby and Pepper soothes the pain.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve written three other books in this series, and it’s been fun to see different aspects of the characters unfolding. In At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, Senth is a young man falling in love for the first time. In For Women Only, he’s in danger and needs saving by his big brother. In Bro, he’s meeting that brother for the first time, at age eighteen. And in A Stolen Heart, he’s all of three years old and stealing the heart of his soon-to-be adoptive father. I mean look at that face. Who could say no to that face?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I bounce around among Suspense, Regency Romance, Sci-Fi, and contemporary gay romance. I love stories with happy ever afters or happy for nows. I also read a lot of non-fiction.

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

Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series.

Who are your favorite writers?

JD Robb, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, JR Ward, Beverley Oakley, Alexa Aston, Heather Gladney, Mary Renault… I’ll stop, but there are plenty more. I read a lot.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m taking a short break from writing because I just finished a huge book. My brain and psyche need a reset. I anticipate starting the next book in about a month.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

On the agenda: I’ve finished Surrender Love and Forbid My Heart, both in the Surrender series. I’m hoping to write Surrender Trust next. Then comes Crystal Clear Truth (Antonello Brothers), and two books in the Bringer of Chaos series: Watch Your Six, and Ghost of a Chance. That’s the plan, anyway. But you know how life is. I didn’t plan to write A Stolen Heart, but it’s one of my favorite stories now that I’ve finished it. It’s the perfect book to read if you’ve never read anything of mine before.

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #TimeTravelRomanceAmber Daulton, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Leonora Harris fled her newly wedded husband’s home in Georgian England, 1725, and took shelter in a cave during a rainstorm. She woke up in a cold, barren land and a handsome stranger with a mechanical carriage offered her shelter.

Undercover American operative Rodger Ramsey never expected to find a runaway bride in the magnificent Salar de Uyuni. Assigned to Bolivia to investigate Communist activities, he just wrapped up his two-year mission in 1963 and followed his heart to the salt flats one last time.

Sparks flew and attraction sizzled. The lost, stubborn woman kicked his protective instincts into overdrive. Rodger took her home with him, determined to help her before he returned to the States, and Leonora flourished under his guidance. Their hearts intertwined. He wanted her, needed her, but could he truly love a woman who believed she jumped two hundred years in time?

Will they find a way to stay together, despite the obstacles between them, or will Leonora survive in this strange new world alone?

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Since Rodger is a CIA agent on assignment in Bolivia in 1963, he doesn’t have a lot of off-time. When he gets bored, he checks on his contacts in the criminal underworld or spies on the Communist party that’s taking charge of the government.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Fruit. Chocolate or junk food is a rarity where’s he’s stationed, so he’s become accustomed to snacking on apples.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Slacks and sweaters.

Does he know how to fix things?

Rodger earned a degree in Engineering before he joined the feds, so he’s very capable with his hands. Which is great for his lady love, Leonora. *wink wink*

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

That’s classified. Sorry. Unless you have clearance? No? Next question.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He’s comfortable around them. He has three younger siblings, so he grew up in a large family.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Wide awake, alert. He’s trained his body to wake at a certain time.

Can he use chopsticks?

No way. He doesn’t have an opportunity to eat Oriental food anyway.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Nope. No coffee. He misses that luxury.

Android or iPhone? What apps would he have on his phone?

“Apps? Robots? What is Kayelle talking about?”

“Shh.” Yeah, sorry. Rodger was responding to that one. I’m shushing him.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven, most of the time.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. He’s too much of a square to take a walk on the wide side. Thank God that doesn’t apply to the bedroom, though, or Leonora wouldn’t be too happy.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Four-by-four jeep. Without it, he never would’ve found Leonora wandering around the flats.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Even though saving the environment wasn’t a widely spread notion back in the ’60s, he doesn’t believe in wasting things.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
