Drakon's Prey by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome NJ Walters author of Drakon’s Prey, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Drakon’s Prey is the second book in the new Blood of the Drakon series. A drakon is the son of a dragon and a human woman. I started this series with the premise of four drakons, all half brothers (same drakon sire, different mothers). They are 4000 years old and they have an enemy who will stop at nothing to capture and control them. Not only do drakons have great wealth, but their blood will cure all disease and prolong the life of the human drinking it. This is Tarrant’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. No surprise there. I love all kinds of romance—paranormal, historical, contemporary, and romantic suspense. I also like nonfiction and tend to read a lot of self help/spiritual books as well.

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

That’s a tough one. There are so many. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series is right up there. She’s tough and smart, but has a tender side, which she shows very reluctantly. I’ve read the entire series and am always waiting for the next book.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on another drakon book for the series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Lots happening in the coming months. My new publisher, Entangled, will be rereleasing my entire Samhain Publishing backlist (over 30 books), which was taken down with Samhain Publishing closed. I also have a new drakon book—Drakon’s Plunder—on July 3rd.

I’m thrilled to be part of an incredible anthology—Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology. My story is “Roadside Assistance.” It is available on June 13th, and can be pre-ordered for only 99-cents on Amazon.

The remaining three books in my Dalakis Passion vampire series will be rereleased between now and the end of the year. And there will probably be more.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Blame it on the Moon by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalLove…when you least expect it.

D.C. native, Livia Quinn, lives and writes by the bayou in Louisiana. She’s written eleven books in her Storm Lake series, both paranormal and military romance. While working as a plant manager, computer trainer, mail lady, professional singer, and small business owner she stocked her brain full of great characters and fodder for her stories and is eager to share them with her readers.

Blame it on the Moon

It’s the height of the Para-moon and Sheriff Jack Lang is up to his ‘6’ in alligators. Defending those weaker than himself is in his DNA which is what drove him to become a Navy pilot. Now, who is he kidding? Alligators he could handle! But supernatural bad guys?

Ragtag doesn’t begin to describe his band of temporary ‘heroes’. If he has to go to war with the group that showed up at dawn, he might as well start cutting up white sheets and attaching them to garden stakes.

With Tempe and the other Paramortals ill or incapacitated and the sudden appearance of beings he’s never heard of, will Jack be able to keep Destiny out of the hands of their enemies for the rest of the power down and—very important—keep the humans in the dark? It’s only twenty-four hours. If worse comes to worse, he has a dragon on his side and a few surprises up his sleeve. “Yippe, ki, yi…”

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours and things don’t always go as planned.

Take These Broken Wings

Blame it on the Moon by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalStrap in ’cause it’s a wild ride through Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…

Five months ago, Sheriff Jack Lang would have sworn there was no such thing as vampires, tempestaeries, djinn or dragons. That was before he met Tempest Pomeroy, his sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. He’d fallen for her before he found out about her “special abilities”. But that wasn’t what turned his life upside down. No, to say Jack’s world had gone FUBAR was like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure.

Tempe had been afraid her supernatural nature would be a problem for Jack, who’d mistaken Destiny for a “Mayberry-like” small town, but that didn’t explain why he’d left her in favor of haunting the highest levees in the parish. Sure, he’d received a shock, but what was it going to take to get him to return to his life and to her? A stubborn man is one thing; a grumpy, depressed twenty-ton dragon was a bit more of a challenge.

Blood Moon, book 6, will be available for preorder in July.

Candi is the co-host of the wildly popular radio show Candi and Company with over 900 thousand listeners began her venture in the paranormal at the tender age of two, when she witnessed her first apparition. From that moment on the paranormal seemed to follow her. No matter where she moved, the house she lived in the house next door, or the house down the street always seemed to be haunted.

She often wondered if she drew the spirits to her. Little did she know that she was indeed a magnet of sorts. It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she found people who could not only explain her gifts, but would also help her hone them. Armed with this new knowledge she began to openly explore hauntings and other paranormal phenomena.

Growing up in Indiana lent her the opportunity to explore many famous haunted places including the Hannah House, which was once part of the Underground Railroad. A little over two years ago she moved to Tulsa, OK and has began to explore the haunted landscape in a new state.

Candi lives with her husband, and furry children in Tulsa. She is passionate about the occult, saving and rehabilitating horses, horseback riding, magic, all things mystical and has her Reiki Mastery.

She uses her own paranormal experiences as well as her own life traumas to write from a grounded and realistic perspective about subjects that are hard to talk about and even harder to feel for yourself.

Is It True: Day for Night by Stacey E Bryan @StaceyEBryan #RLFblog #Paranormal #ComedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Stacey E. Bryan, author of Day for Night, an urban paranormal comedy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Day For Night is a Los Angeles-based urban paranormal comedy. Rife with pop references and scathing commentary on L.A., we follow main protagonist Rae Miller, a 38-40 something wannabe actress who has recently been voted off her reality TV show, as she languishes at a crossroads. She barely has time for self-pity, though, when the unthinkable happens: she witnesses an alien abduction in broad daylight!

Worse, Rae soon discovers that aliens aren’t the only otherworldly beings inhabiting the world, and after escaping a terrifying almost-abduction herself, she succumbs to a sexy Nosferatu’s silky assurances, becoming undead in order to up her alien Ultimate Fighting skills.

While not a strict romance, Day for Night does contain romantic elements. While Rae juggles constant male attention, only one person truly has her heart, although he refuses to have sex with her. I would say the heat level stabilizes at “smoldering” for most of the novel with one brief hot scene which, I although I used the rating PG13, the language that passes between them is definitely R.

Rae is not your usual protagonist since she’s somewhat older and also mixed race, two topics that are significant for anyone living in L.A. and/or trying to survive in The Biz. Some of her life is behind her, and she’s not quite sure how that happened. She’s also resentful that her love-life has stalled, and the dating scene is not only unfulfilling but, she discovers, downright dangerous!

The title Day for Night was taken from Truffaut’s movie title in order to reference the Hollywood environment, although “day for night” comes to mean something very different for Rae after her “Hail Mary” transformation into something…other.

After all, we all have a little bit of Rae inside us: when faced with the incomprehensible, in all likelihood, what would the average person do? Come on, be honest. They’d thank God for Jack Daniels and denial!

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Yes. My first published book. But then, who doesn’t have several other novels stuffed away into drawers and boxes? It’s probably best that those never see the light of day.
this book is part of a series?
Yes. It’s standalone, but I feel like I left enough elements hanging somewhat that a few folks might be thinking, “Lucy, you’ve got a lot of ‘splaining to do!”
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, I lost some sleep and pulled my hair out and went crazy sometimes.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Small facts throughout like the names of the moons of Jupiter, what the chemical make-up of chlorophyll is, the definition of antimatter. Stuff that’s good for Jeopardy!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. Some characters are definitely not human, and some of them are even yearning to be human.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. It’s an urban paranormal comedy peppered throughout with romantic, mystery, and action-adventure elements.
you speak more than one language?
Yes. I can speak passable Spanish, having studied it from age 9 throughout college. It’s a crime, though, that I’m so rusty at it.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. Born in San Francisco, grew up in the San Fernando Valley, lived in NYC for a while, then came back home. On a side note, scarily, I left NYC right before 9/11 happened.
you love to read?
Yes. Reading is almost like breathing oxygen. I need it in a way that makes me super-glad that I never started smoking or took up gambling.
you are never late?
No. I’m often late. It seems to happen when I say to myself, “Oh, I’m making good time with this,” and invariably jinx myself.
you love pizza?
Yes. I think pizza’s one of the best things ever invented in the history of Earth.
you love sushi?
No, I do not love sushi, and I never will.
you have a pet?
No. I only have the memory of my beloved black cat, Mr. Smith, who acted like a dog and followed me everywhere.

Stacey E Bryan Social Media

Stacey was a tomboy growing up, fond of gymnastics, climbing trees with Mr. Smith (her cat) and reading. While on vacation with her family when she was 13, a broken toe resulted in an inability to wear high heels when she got older (or at least not for very long), further alienating her from accepted feminine standards. After receiving her English degree at UCLA, she worked at a dude ranch, for a resume writer in Beverly Hills, in the classified ads department of The Reader, and eventually ended up captioning for the hearing impaired. She has written about tortured artists, suicide, and anorexia nervosa, but has found that light, humorous writing is a lot more fun, thus the foray into aliens and vampires in a Los Angeles setting. When she moved to New York, she found her husband in Brooklyn, and they eventually moved back to L.A. where they both write between bingeing episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and True Detective years after everyone else has already seen them.

Stifled (Summoned Series #2) by Rainy Kaye @rainyofthedark #RLFblog #PNRStifled, book two of the Summoned Series by Rainy Kaye, is a dark twist on genie folklore. The series follows an unwilling criminal as he unravels the paranormal bond controlling his life.

In Axiom (a prequel novella) Fifteen year old Dimitri’s life changes when his father is murdered, causing him to inherit a family curse. Now he’s left at the mercy of rules he doesn’t understand and the sinister side of people he thought he knew. Forced to commit crimes that increase in severity, Dimitri struggles to find his place in a world where he doesn’t exist.

In Summoned (book one), twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told – literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker. Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well.

When he meets Syd – assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd – he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming – the wish that will destroy him.

Stifled, Book Two

In Stifled, Dimitri would like nothing more than to live a low-key life in Naples, Italy. His girlfriend, Syd, has other plans. After three months of researching, she is positive she has found a jinn on a killing spree in San Diego, California. Since Syd gave Dimitri the one thing he thought was out of reach, he feels obligated to use his ill-gained talents for her cause.

A few hours back in the US proves that Dimitri and Syd didn’t quite make the clean escape they had thought. As they trail the elusive jinn, someone else trails them. What should have been a simple trip to confirm once and for all if the jinn are living among humans, instead reveals a community keeping dark secrets.

Unfortunately for Dim, the only way out is in.

Nonetheless, he recognizes evil and knows he must fight for the future of his young son, as well as the rest of the world.

Zari, a vampire warrior, helped Grit escape the tower where he had been imprisoned. She had feelings for Grit when they’d first met, but at the time he had been mated to another wolf. Now that he’s on his own, they’re free to explore their feelings as they fight side by side as part of the rebellion against the demons. In the midst of war, their love grows, but danger is everywhere.

Haylen, the demon who resurrected Grit, offers a bargain that may save or destroy the rebellion. Whatever the outcome, Zari and Grit intend to face it together and explore the once forbidden passion between them.

Welcome Tarrant Cooper from Drakon’s Prey, a new paranormal
romance.
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to
write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights
of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose
mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her
hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures,
she can’t turn away any longer.
When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s
secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted
four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of
the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization
knows about him and his brothers.
He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him
killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her
his heart would mean forever.

Introducing Tarrant Cooper

Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A small village in the Middle East that has long
since gone to dust.
Profession: I basically control the airwaves.
Ethnicity/ Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a
drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I’m 6’8″ with short black hair and blue
eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck
to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is silver and
outlined in the same blue as my eyes.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a drakon. That means I don’t like to talk about myself.
The less people who know about my kind, the better.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
My Valeriya. She’s one of a kind and she’s mine. *growls
possessively*
Are you book-smart, self-taught,
widely-experienced?
I’m self-taught and widely-experienced. *laughs* I’ve been
around for a very, very long time. I’ve watched mankind go from mostly
illiterate to everyone having books and information at their fingertips. From
primate communication to now having a good chunk of the population walking
around with a cell phone stuck against their ear.
Do you get by, live comfortably,
live extravagantly?
I’m comfortable in my below-ground
lair. It has everything I need. My biggest expense is my computer equipment.
Money doesn’t mean much to me. I have more than enough for a hundred lifetimes.
And I can always make more.
Are you close to family?
I’m close to my brothers. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do
or no one I wouldn’t kill to protect them. And now I have my Valeriya. She’s
everything to me.
How well do you know your
neighbors?
*snorts* I don’t have neighbors. I live in an underground
bunker in the middle of nowhere. And that’s the way I like it.
What secrets do you know
about people around you that you do NOT share?
Nothing is a secret from me. Information is my passion, my
life’s blood. If it’s out there, I can find it. There is nowhere I can’t go
online. I mostly don’t care what people do as long as they leave me and mine
alone. If they don’t…
What are your biggest
hopes and dreams?
I want to destroy the Knights of the Dragon and live in peace
with Valeriya. The Knights have been hunting my kind for centuries and we’ve
mostly left them alone. This time, they’ve gone too far and I’m taking the hunt
to them.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Grace Risata, author of Ungranted Wishes, a Paranormal Romantic Comedy This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

It would be putting it mildly to say that full-figured Cleo Welch was in a funk. Dead end job? Check. Bank account? Running low. Sex life? Non-existent.

Her luck took a turn for the better when she stumbled upon a magic brass pot at a rummage sale. After getting drunk and rubbing things the right way, Cleo found herself in possession of one extremely attractive genie who was very grateful to be released.

What’s a girl to do when a four thousand-year-old genie is far more interested in satisfying her every desire, rather than granting any of her wishes? Well…she does the genie. That’s a no-brainer!

Warning: This full length novel contains quite a few explicit sex scenes (including ones involving candy that explodes, a dirty-talking detective, and an ancient ritual performed with raspberries). Every scene is absolutely consensual between all parties involved. All my stories come with a guarantee that you will crack a smile, find a happily-ever-after ending, and never have to deal with an annoying cliffhanger. There’s also no cheating, no billionaires, no bigfoot sightings, and plenty of character backstory.

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No, it is my fourth full length novel!

this book is part of a series?

No, it is a stand-alone novel.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

Yes, it kept me awake with new ideas for scenes. I fell in love with the characters and didn’t want the story to end.

you did research for this book?

Yes, I had to research Genies and Ancient Egypt. I also researched ritual scenes with raspberries that are Rated R! How’s that for a tongue twister?

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

No, everyone is human. Well, I guess the genie is a genie.

this book has more than one genre?

Yes, BBW, Romance, Comedy, Suspense, Paranormal.

you speak more than one language?

Yes, my German is passable.

you grew up where you live now?

Yes

I would first and foremost like to thank everyone for taking the time to give my stories a chance. My goal is to take you out of your world, and all the stresses that go along with everyday life, and bring you into my world of romance and fantasy. I have a special weakness for hot alpha males and the feisty heroines who love them. Above all else, I hope you got a laugh out of my book. I aim to incorporate as much comedy into my romance as is humanly possible.

My professional biography is as follows (I’m not sure why it’s in the third person, evidently that’s the rule): Grace is happiest when reading, eating Portillos hot dogs, and patiently waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Welcome Claire Gem author of Spirits of the Heart, a new Supernatural
Suspense.
Why did you write this book?
I grew up in
Middletown, N.Y, where there was an abandoned mental asylum. The place always
haunted me. I’ve always been very interested in the history of mental health
care (which is a ghoulish history to be sure!), so it seemed the natural place
to set my next supernatural suspense.
Then, during the
writing of the book, I was visiting the property with my sister/cover designer,
taking pictures for the trailer. One particular building, Talcott Hall, kept
calling to me, though I couldn’t get too close because of the 8-foot high chain
link perimeter. Two weeks later, the building mysteriously burned to the
ground—after standing empty for almost 30 years. It was then I knew that
Spirits of the Heart must be written, to immortalize Talcott Hall.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romances,
particularly those with supernatural elements, especially ghosts. I’m a ghost
hunter at heart.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Films, not
books—Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
What are you working on at the moment?
My next novel is
called Pigments, and is another supernatural suspense. The blurb:
There’s an unsolved mystery in the world of art
history: which painting was Vincent Van Gogh’s last?
Rachel Parrish is a DNA analyst with peculiar a
psychic ability: psychometry. She can access the memories of a person from
something they touched, thereby leaving their genetic blueprint behind. She
also suffers from some unusual phobias. She’s terrified of visual art,
particularly of . . . paintings?
Duncan Nicklas is a sexy museum curator who comes
to Rachel’s aid when an unplanned museum visit overwhelms her. He’s searching
for his soulmate: another, like-minded antiquarian to complete his life. His
initial fascination with Rachel’s gift develops into something more—but she’s
terrified of paintings. He’s a museum curator. How can this ever work?
And then there’s Ethan Fagan—who’s determined to
claim Rachel as his own. To use her abilities to validate an obscure painting
in his grandfather’s collection. To secure his fortune. No matter what the
cost.
Pigments. It’s all in the touch.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to
Pigments, I’m working on a non-fiction book for fiction writers called The Road
to Publication. I’m hoping that will be released sometime before April 1st.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
