Endless Chase is here!

The wait is over...

ENDLESS CHASE, the final book in the sizzling Dalakis Passion vampire romance series, is finally here!


Since the night her parents were brutally murdered, Katya Markova has been driven by a dark quest for vengeance. When her search for the killers leads her to the heart of Transylvania and the ancestral home of the Dalakis, she hopes to finally take her revenge and put her horrific memories and the souls of her parents to rest. Then she meets the mesmerizing Chase Deveraux, and his intensely passionate touch threatens to weaken her resolve as she surrenders to his sensual promise.

With his life in disarray, Chase has retreated to the remote castle of the Dalakis clan to sort things out in isolation, but instead is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious Katya. Instantly spellbound by her tough warrior exterior and compelling beauty, Chase finds that Katya captivates him like no other woman has before—until he learns of her dark intent and is torn between his own needs and those of his family.

Because Katya is enmeshed in a world of lies and deceptions, and has brought that world to the Dalakis doorstep. As their unquenchable passion spirals to incredible sensual heights, Chase and Katya will be forced to make a choice, one that could destroy the Dalakis clan for all time or unite the desperate young lovers for eternity…

This is a revised edition of a previous published book.

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?
