N.J. Walters

To win the battle for his soul, he may have to sacrifice the woman who set him free.

Hades’ Carnival, Book 1

Aimee Horner lives and breathes her career as a graphic novel illustrator, but she never expected it would invade her dreams. In recent months, worsening nightmares have pulled her into the darkest corners of Hell.

On a rare night out with friends at a traveling carnival, she finds herself strangely drawn to an abandoned carousel adorned with vividly exotic animals. One steed, a massive white tiger, is a temptation she can’t resist. The moment she climbs upon him, her world changes forever.

More than five thousand years ago, Roric and his fellow shapeshifting warriors were imprisoned in their animal forms, a last-ditch effort by the goddess they served to save them from the horrors of Hell.

With one special woman’s touch, he has a chance at freedom and redemption -- but the clock is ticking. If he is still alive in twenty-four hours, the spell will be broken, and Hell will have no claim on his soul. The only hitch is his blazing attraction to Aimee. If only he could trust that she isn’t merely a distraction sent by Hades -- luscious bait to lure him from his mission.

About N.J. Walters

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel, Annabelle Lee, and life would never be the same.

An Interview with N.J. Walters
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: NJ, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Night of the Tiger and is part of your new Hades Carnival series. What can you first tell us about this exciting new series?

NJ: Thank you for having me at TRS this month!

Welcome to Hades’ Carnival, where a group of immortal shapeshifting warriors are imprisoned in their animal forms on a carousel. Cursed by the very goddess they served -- The Lady of the Beasts -- in order to keep them out of Hell, now the warriors are being offered a chance at freedom and redemption. It will take a very special woman to free each warrior and not all of them will make it. It all starts with Night of the Tiger...

BLURB:

Aimee Horner lives and breathes her career as a graphic novel illustrator, but she never expected it would invade her dreams. In recent months, worsening nightmares have pulled her into the darkest corners of Hell.

On a rare night out with friends at a traveling carnival, she finds herself strangely drawn to an abandoned carousel adorned with vividly exotic animals. One steed, a massive white tiger, is a temptation she can’t resist. The moment she climbs upon him, her world changes forever.

More than five thousand years ago, Roric and his fellow shapeshifting warriors were imprisoned in their animal forms, a last-ditch effort by the goddess they served to save them from the horrors of Hell.

With one special woman’s touch, he has a chance at freedom and redemption -- but the clock is ticking. If he is still alive in twenty-four hours, the spell will be broken, and Hell will have no claim on his soul. The only hitch is his blazing attraction to Aimee. If only he could trust that she isn’t merely a distraction sent by Hades -- luscious bait to lure him from his mission.

HH: How does Night of the Tiger kick it off?

NJ: In Night of the Tiger we learn about the group of immortal shapeshifting warriors who are imprisoned in their animal form on a carousel that just happens to be a part of a travelling carnival run by the devil himself. The warriors have been cursed, but there is a loophole. There is one special woman to free each warrior. In Night of the Tiger, Roric, the white tiger is freed by Aimee Horner and the battle for their very souls begins.

HH: What can you tell us about the books to come in the series?

NJ: The series continues in April with Mark of the Bear. This is Marko’s story. Like Roric, he is freed by a special lady—movie scream queen, Kellsie Morris. Kellsie thinks she’s landed the film roll of her career. Instead, she finds herself in a world where she is no longer certain what is fact and what is fiction. Pride of the Lion and Howl of the Wolf will be released later this year.

HH: What do you like best about Aimee and why will readers be cheering for her?

NJ: Aimee’s life hasn’t been an easy one, but she’s tough. She lives by herself and has carved a life for herself doing what she loves. When the world of her graphic art fantasies collide with reality, Aimee stumbles but she doesn’t fall. Instead, she becomes a full partner to Roric in their battle for survival.

HH: What do you like best about Roric and why will readers love him?

NJ: Roric is completely alpha and makes no apology for it. He’s an immortal shapeshifting warrior who last walked in the world five thousand years ago. He has a code of honor that’s bone deep and has a determination forged in steel. It doesn’t hurt that he’s sexy as all get out either.

HH: What makes their relationship unique?

NJ: Neither one of them is searching for or wants a relationship, but they are both powerless against the physical and emotional bonds that form between them. In the end, they are forced to make the ultimate sacrifice for love.

HH: What do you have in store for lucky readers?

NJ: This is a special series in that all four books will be released in 2013. Mark of the Bear is being released on April 16th.  No date yet for Pride of the Lion or Howl of the Wolf, but hopefully soon.

There will also be a new Tapestries book this year. Readers can keep an eye on my website for more details as they become available.

HH: What do you enjoy most about being a writer?

NJ: There is so much I enjoy about being a writer, but I think the thing I love the most is bringing the stories in my head to life. Seeing the characters come alive on the page and having readers love them as much as I do. That’s incredibly rewarding.

HH: What keeps you writing each day?

NJ: The need to tell the story. My characters are very real to me and I can’t leave them hanging with no resolution in their lives.

HH: Where can readers find you online?

NJ: Readers can find me at:
