Guest Post: NJ Walters, Author of Wolf in His Heart

This morning I have a guest post from N. J. Walters, author of the Salvation Pack series!

How did you come up with the idea for this story?

Sage Gallagher was first introduced in Wolf on a Mission, but he was still a teenager. I knew when I was writing that book that Sage, and his twin brother Reece, would need to have their own stories. There was no way I could let them go without knowing what happened to them. So Wolf in his Heart jumps forward a decade, allowing both of them to grow up and become the men they were meant to be. Sage is quiet and thoughtful. He is like a werewolf in all ways except for one major one—he can’t shift.

The idea for this story came from Sage and Rina themselves. I don’t know if most non-writers can understand, but the characters tell me their stories. Once I knew both of them and understood the unique challenges they were facing the story flowed from there.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Guest Post: Fire Danger by Claire Davon

This morning I have a guest post from Clare Davon, author of Fire Danger.   Grab a cup of coffee and check it out!

The evolution of Fire Danger by Clare Davon

My recently released paranormal romance Fire Danger, the first in a projected five book series, started life about ten years ago. I’d had this idea for immortal-but-not-unkillable Elementals loosely tied to the four elements whose job it was to protect the human world from their Demonos counterparts. I wrote the first hundred pages in a fever, ideas flying out of my head and onto the paper.

Well. The project stalled when I hit a point that required a far deeper knowledge of world politics than I had. I had ideas about diamond mines and political maneuverings and…it just bogged down. I tried to slog through it, I even wrote around the sticky point and crafted the end (which has remained largely intact) but I couldn’t break through that wall. There were other reasons too, my vagueness around Challenge and what it actually meant chief among them and I wound up putting this book to the side. It was something I wanted to get back to but time went by as time is wont to do. It was always there in the back of my mind like a mantra “finish the Elementals. Finish the Elementals.”

Spotlight: Born of Magic by Missy Jane

Born of Magic (Gargoyle Masters, Book 2) by Missy Jane

Date of Publication: July 12, 2016

Blurb

Guarding the kingdom is child’s play compared to guarding their hearts.

Gargoyle Masters, Book 2

As his month-long guard duty comes to an end, Master Wynnston should be looking forward to well-deserved time away from the king’s castle. Instead, he feels strangely reluctant to leave. When Zephara of the Pastelle race arrives, he realizes why.

The stunning, silver-eyed ambassador is the woman his heart, body, and soul have been waiting for. She’s also a powerful wizard who will endure the test of the Twenty. Wynn has never been afraid to woo a strong woman, but winning and keeping Zephara’s love will test him to the limit.

Meanwhile, pure chance has finally led Master Kephas to find the runaway Princess Theodora. But before he can return the frightened, skittish beauty to her father, he must win her trust—and her heart.

Physical strength will do Wynn and Kephas no good as they face their challenges. And two women will search deep within themselves for the strength, courage—and tenderness—to bring two powerful men to their knees.

Review: Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh

May Contain Spoilers

Riley and Mercy are the featured couple in Branded by Fire.  Both are dominant and rank high in their packs.  Mercy is a leopard, and Riley is a wolf.  I have to admit that I have a thing for the ShadowDancer wolves.  I just love them.  While I like the DarkRiver leopards, they can’t hold a candle to the wolves, so I’m always happy when the wolves are prominently featured in the stories.
