Lest We Forget...

 
 
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
 
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
 
~John McCrae

Weekend Book Club--The Mistaken Billionaire by Lexxie Couper


This week I read THE MISTAKEN BILLIONAIRE by Lexxie Couper. It's part of her The Muse series but can definitely be read as a standalone story. As of this posting it's still on sale for 99-cents.

This book is just plain fun. It has it all--a strong heroine, a sexy hero, a case of mistaken identity, and a second chance to make a first impression.

If you love a good sexy contemporary romance then this is a book you should try. 

BLURB:

Thomas St Clair is used to getting exactly what he wants, when he wants it. So when a mysterious woman shows up at his door with his runaway dog and her presence drives away his writer’s block, he’s willing to put up with her secrets if it means she’ll stay around.

Mila Elderkin once had a promising career in journalism, until her dreams were shattered by a rising star in the literary world. When fate lands her at that same man’s door years later, and he doesn’t recognize her, it seems she’s been offered a chance for a little fun. Mila’s not out for revenge, especially not once she starts to see the man beneath the persona. But the past has funny way of creeping into the present, and secrets don’t lie quiet forever.

Each book in the The Muse series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Series Order:
Book #1 The Stubborn Billionaire
Book #2 The Mistaken Billionaire
Book #3 The Irredeemable Billionaire

Guy Fawkes NIght

Today is Guy Fawkes Night, aka bonfire night. If you're having a bonfire, please be safe. It's a strange holiday. It goes back to November 5, 1605 when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while placing explosives beneath the House of Lords in London. It had all kinds of political and religious implications at the time. I remember it as the night of the community bonfire when I was a kid.
 
Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

Weekend Book Club--Delta Redemption by Elle Boon

This week I read DELTA REDEMPTION, the sixth book in the SEAL Team Phantom series. Elle Boon just keeps on getting better. Murder, betrayal, action, intrigue, spicy sex, and heartfelt emotions. This book has it all.

*This book can be read as a standalone story*

Jase had his life mapped out in front of him. He was the leader of SEAL Team Phantom and planned to continue moving up in the ranks, until he met his mentor’s daughter. Falling for Brooke Frazee wasn’t on his agenda, but from the moment he saw the Admiral’s daughter, all bets were off.

Brooke’s life wasn’t always easy, but she dreamed of someday finding her happily ever after. She never planned on falling for a military man like her father, until she unexpectedly meets Jase Tyler at her door. The thought of being with him both terrified and excited her.


Jase knew Brooke was the woman for him. After declaring their love for each other they were forced to part ways, for reasons Brooke will never understand. Jase is left with his heart in shreds as he’s shipped off on a mission, unsure of his return. Will war make him forget everything he’s leaving behind or will his mission leave him branded as a traitor?

Brooke was shattered when Jase left, but she was forced to move on with her life even though her dreams had changed. She’s not prepared when the man from her past walks back through the door, or for the secrets they uncover while on the run from danger.

Jase, no longer a member of Phantom Team, but not knowing who else he can trust to protect what he holds dear, calls on his former SEAL Team. As they reunite as a unit and work together, they find out that nothing is what it seems. If Jase and Brooke live through the coming days, will their love be able to endure when the dust settles?

An Interview with a Vampire

This interview with Damek was published several years ago, but since the book was recently released, and it is Halloween month,  I decided to share it once again. Enjoy!
 
 
Interview with a Vampire

By N.J. Walters
 

I sit quietly and stare out over the cavernous space, which is empty other than the two people working behind the long bar dominating one side of the room. With the music silent and the overhead lights on, it looks more like a warehouse than one of the most popular nightclubs in Chicago—Inhibitions. I’m thrilled that the owner of the club has agreed to see me. Just because Damek and I know one another doesn’t mean my welcome here is assured. He likes to keep to himself. Always has.
 
The surge of power hits me and jerks my head around. Dressed, as always, in a designer suit tailored to his lithe build, Damek strides toward me. His black, shoulder-length hair is smooth as silk and gleams in the light. The firm set of his lips bothers me and I wonder if he’ll even talk to me.
 


NJW: Thanks for seeing me.
 

He slides into the seat across from me and studies me with his dark, hypnotic eyes. I glance away.

 
DAMEK: You said you wished to interview me.

 
NJW: I’d like to ask you a few questions, to allow readers to get a better insight into you and the way you think.


DAMEK: Is that wise?
 

He raises one eyebrow and leans back nonchalantly against the back of the leather bench seat. Not for one second do I believe he’s relaxed. Beneath his suit, his muscles are coiled and ready to attack at a moment’s notice. I swallow hard.


NJW: I think so.

 
He inclines his head in a gracious nod, but I can sense his irritation. I’ve always been able to sense his moods.
 

DAMEK: Ask away.


I want to start with the question most asked by readers, but I hesitate, not sure how he’ll react. Still, I did promise to do this interview. I take a deep breath and plunge onward.
 

NJW: You’re good friends with Craig Lawton. A lot of readers wonder why you didn’t end up with him.


A deep chill fills the air around me at the first mention of Craig’s name and I wonder if I’ve gone too far. I know how protective he feels about that particular human. He frowns and then a slow smile momentarily crosses his lips, giving me the briefest glimpse of sharp, pearly fangs.


DAMEK: I’ve always found humans fascinating. After all, I used to be one. But it is hard to watch friends die out one by one as the centuries pass and it became easier to allow no one close. Craig is different, his mind agile, his loyalty unsurpassed. As for ending up with him…I am attracted to his mind, not his body. I much prefer females when it comes to sex.


Okay, so I navigated that particular minefield without having it explode. I decide it’s best to move on to the next question.
 

NJW: You’re a vampire, a species that usually keeps to itself. But you’re also friends with the Striker brothers and the Haven werewolf pack. How did you become friends with them?
 

Damek tilts his head to one side and studies me.
 

DAMEK: Such an inquisitive mind.

 
I shrug, unable to deny his claim.


NJW: If I weren’t, your story would never have been told.
 

DAMEK: True enough. The story is personal and not one I’m willing to get into, but let’s just say that times have changed in the past century. With the rise of technology, the paranormal bounty hunters have been able to mobilize better, which is not a good thing for either species. Joshua and Isaiah Striker passed along some information to me back in the nineteen nineties that was instrumental to my avoiding a pack of rabid vampire hunters. I owed them.
 

NJW: But it’s more than that.
 

DAMEK: It is. I find I like the damn troublesome werewolves. Plus, there is no denying their impeccable taste in women.


One corner of his mouth turns up in a smile and I can feel how much he likes the werewolves…and the women.
 

NJW: Yet, the wolves haven’t always extended trust to you.
 

I know I’ve hit a sore spot when his smile fades and his eyes tinge with red. I swallow hard and try to slow the racing of my heart.
 

DAMEK: Tread carefully.
 

NJW: Sorry, but it’s true. And it’s unfair.


I’m indignant on his behalf. Damek’s done nothing but protect and help the wolves, and when he needed their absolute trust, he didn’t get it, at least not from everyone. The red fades from his eyes and they warm slightly. I know that he’s read my thoughts and I feel my face heating under his regard.

 
DAMEK: Thank you.


NJW: You’re welcome.
 

I don’t want to push my luck and decide it’s time to wrap up this interview.
 

NJW: One final question. Your life has changed a lot in recent days. Are you planning on staying in Chicago or are you going to relocate anytime soon?
 

DAMEK: Much has changed, but I like this city. I enjoy the people who live here and have no plans to leave in the near future.
 

I note he doesn’t mention the Haven pack or Craig Lawton specifically. Nor does he mention Sonia Agostino, but I can see by the warning in his dark gaze that she is totally off limits for discussion. That’s okay by me. I want readers to delve into his book and discover that particular story for themselves.
 

NJW: Thanks for taking the time to talk with me.
 

DAMEK: My pleasure.
 

He rises, inclines his head in a courtly gesture and leaves me seated at the table. He stops at the bar momentarily before heading to his office.
 

My interview with Damek is done and I release a slow breath. As much as I love him, he’s not an easy man to be around. Not surprising considering he’s a one-thousand-year-old vampire. There is so much he could tell me about the history of the world. He’s lived it. But he keeps his thoughts to himself, self contained and powerful, a necessity that’s kept him alive as long as it has.
 

I look up as I sense someone approaching the table. One of the bartenders places a glass of red wine on the table in front of me. “Compliments of the boss,” she tells me before walking away. I pick up the glass and sip. The wine is fruity and full-bodied, with just a touch of something I can’t quite place…

 

NOTE: If you want to find out more, check out Damek’s Redemption by N.J. Walters, now available from Entangled Publishing.

Eternal Brothers is back!


Eternal Brothers, book four of the Dalakis Passion vampire series, is now available. 

I absolutely love the new covers for this series.

When an anonymous late-night tip sends reporter Sophia Daring to the cemetery, she isn’t prepared for what she finds there—a grisly murder scene and the body of a woman completely drained of blood. Sophia’s never been scared off a story before, but this time all the clues point to one disturbing conclusion: this was the work of the mysterious and dangerous Dalakis brothers. And just as unsettling for the fiercely independent Sophia is the irresistible pull of the stranger also working the case, the sensually compelling Zane York.

A ex-cop, Zane has made it his personal mission to prove that the secretive Dalakis family are powerful vampires and ruthless killers. But when his investigation takes him to New Orleans and their latest victim, he begins to suspect that the Dalakis are being framed by an enemy as dark and mysterious as they are. And even as he struggles with his doubts about the family, there’s no doubt about his hungry response to the hauntingly beautiful Sophia. He knows he must make her his own, whatever the cost.

As the smoldering chemistry between Sophia and Zane ignites in a delirious haze of passion, they will find themselves immersed in the Dalakis family secrets and the trail of murder that leads to their door. And as their fears and suspicions war with an unquenchable desire, she and Zane will discover that a secret from the past may pose the deadliest threat yet . . .


This is a revised edition of a previous published book.

Writer Wednesday

I'm part of a group called Upbeat Authors. As the name implies, it's a group of supportive authors trying to share some positivity on social media. Every week there is a new theme.

This week it is: Simple ways to show the important people in your life that you love them.

There are many ways you can do this, but I thought one of the most important ways was to simply spend time with that person. And when you're there, really be there. Turn off the phone, get off the social media, and give that person your undivided attention.

And when they talk, truly listen. That is a gift beyond price.

What ways do you show your loved ones you care?

Teaser Tuesday--Stefan's Salvation



The beast inside him rumbled to life. Every heartbeat in the room pounded in his ears. He could hear the whoosh of their blood pumping through their veins. The sensation was hypnotic. He licked his lips, almost tasting the tang in his mouth.
 
He was hungry and they were sustenance.
 
Closing his eyes, he willed the beast back into submission. It wasn’t easy. Sweat trickled down the back of his neck. As the nights seemed to grow longer, it had gotten harder and harder to even have the will to fight his very nature. It would be so easy to take what he wanted with no consequences.

Weekend Book Club--Life of Lies by Sharon Sala

LIFE OF LIES is the latest book by Sharon Sala. This author is one of the best pure storytellers out there. She weaves complex tales that always leave me wanting more.

BLURB:

Fame, fortune…and a fatal obsession
Sahara Travis is used to being worshipped by adoring fans, but now someone is fixated on her in a dangerous way. After multiple attempts on her life, she reluctantly agrees to hire a security specialist for her protection, though the last thing she wants is some burly bodyguard invading her personal space.

Former army ranger Brendan McQueen's job is to keep the starlet safe and track down her would-be assassin. But when Sahara receives news that her estranged mother has been murdered and her father, the top suspect, is missing, Brendan quickly realizes this is much more serious than your average celebrity stalker.

With Brendan and her devoted assistant, Lucy, in tow, Sahara returns to her family estate in New Orleans to uncover the identity of her attempted killer before he can close in on his final target.

Weekend Book Club--When All the Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz

This past week, I read WHEN ALL THE GIRLS HAVE GONE by Jayne Ann Krentz. (It waited for it to release in paperback.)

I love all her books. Krentz was one of the authors that helped me discover the world of category romance so many years ago. If you haven't read her, you need to.

BLURB:

Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth…
When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished. 

Beautiful, brilliant and reckless, Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.  

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends—women in a Seattle-based online investment club—for answers. But what they find is chilling…

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way…

It's #TeaserTuesday with Wolf in her Soul.

Most people wouldn’t believe in love at first sight. Attraction? Yes. Lust? Absolutely. But he was more than human. He was also a wolf, and he trusted his senses and instincts implicitly. Hannah filled the empty spot in his heart and soul. He didn’t care that she was a half-breed, but he knew his being able to shift and living in a pack might be a problem for her.

Writer Wednesday--Night's Caress by Mary Hughes

New this week!


Night’s Caress
The Ancients Series, book 1
by Mary Hughes

When artist Brie Lark left her vampire ex and her straitjacket of a hometown to breathe free in New York City, she promised herself two things: she’d never go back to Meiers Corner, and no more vampires. The last thing she expected—or wanted—was to be sent back home on an assignment. But her boss at the FBI needs her undercover on a murder case, working with a black-haired, black-eyed giant god of a man who’s her idea of perfection, except for one thing—he’s a vampire.

FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare is an ancient vampire hardened by loss. He’s cut all emotions to protect himself and leads a deliberately steady, almost sterile life. The brash young woman forced to pose as his lover irritates him, with her jangling bracelets and colorful hair. But as much as she irritates him, he finds himself drawn to her lively spirit and he’s tempted to make fantasy a reality.
