Enjoy December Differences

by Nancy Lee Badger

December can mean different things to different people.

To some, it is the end of the year. To others it is the best time of the year. Many people realize snow and ice are obstacles they need to contend with. Others wonder how they can celebrate Santa when palm trees are swaying outside their condos.

For me, it is too soon after my birthday and Thanksgiving to worry about the Christmas holiday.

I had my son drag boxes down from the attic, and the cat and I will fight over what I want to display and what ornaments he wants to eat, but I will find time to keep writing. Even if snow hits us here in sunny Raleigh, North Carolina, I can visit the NC Museum of Art and enjoy reflecting on the future…spring! Here is one of my favorite paintings hanging there. It is called Morning on the Seine, near Giverny by Claude Monet.

The art at this museum, which is only 5 miles from our home, is extraordinary, especially the 30+ works by the famous French sculptor, Auguste Rodin. It affected me in such a way that I planned my next book series there!

Book #1 of my Warriors in Bronze series is Heaven-sent Warrior. Asleep inside Heaven-sent Warriora bronze statue, a naked Frenchman wakes a century later to save a half-Fae museum curator from a demon bent on ruling our present-day world.

Christmas Shadow – New Release

After falling and suffering a concussion, I wasn’t sure if I could get a Christmas story out this year. SURPRISE!
Newly released, I bring you:Christmas Shadow

Christmas Shadow
Book One of the Shadow Walker-Lycan Hybrid Second Generation Romance Series

Aleksei Sokolov, a Shadow Walker-Lycan Hybrid, is trying to protect his best friend, Daven McCloud. He installs an Isanti security system in Daven’s Beverly Hills estate and assumes his identity. Stepping into Daven’s shoes puts him directly in the path of a killer, but it also puts him in the path of Sheridan Harbrook, who has been contracted to decorate Daven’s estate for Christmas.
One whiff of her elusive scent and Aleksei thinks he’s found his mate, but where is the Lycan Heartmate Bond? How could he be falling in love with a woman who isn’t his mate?
Sheridan Harbrook is struggling to care for her terminally ill mother and keep her business afloat. She has no time for anything else, let alone love. She’s seen Daven McCloud at parties before and thought him an immature playboy. Despite his reputation, she agrees to decorate his estate for his company’s annual Christmas gala.
When she meets with the man she believes is Daven, she can’t help but be surprised at how different he is when he doesn’t have a starlet on his arm. Feeling that she’s misjudged him, she lets him kiss her goodnight, even though the evening was strictly business.
She likes the man and one kiss tells her she could more than like him. But as their relationship progresses, danger surrounds them both. Will involving herself with a client put her in the crosshairs of a murderer and will this Christmas be her last?

The Next Generation

My readers have been asking about the next generation stories that go with my three paranormal series, The Siberian Volkov Pack Romances, The Witch Guardian Fantasy Romances and The Shadow Walker Romances. These stories would highlight the children of the various couples you met before, all grown up.

I’m so excited to announce that the first in my new series, The Volkov Family Chronicles is here! Where else would I start, but with the stories of the children of Siberian Lycan, Dmitry Volkov, and his mate, Violet, from Alpha’s Mate.

Some of the themes really hit home for me. It’s now twenty-six years after Alpha’s Mate and the world has changed considerably for our characters. The world is a smaller place. The same could be said about the world changing for you and me.

Do you remember when the first cell phones came out? They were huge and so expensive only the rich or government officials had one. Now everyone has one and most of the time they are within reach.

Not to mention other forms of technology, drones, AI, social media, cameras, and computers. Everything seems to be caught on camera these days. Making it hard to hide anything from anybody. So if you were a supernatural being, how would you stay hidden from the masses?

This is the world my characters will find themselves. All of my characters from all three of my series. We will journey with them as they find their way. I hope you will be excited to join me.

Katya

Book One of the Volkov Family Chronicles

 

Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Illarion Lebedev has secretly watched over Katya since she was in college. He’s proud of her accomplishments. Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate. But wooing the “Ice Princess” will take more than his good looks and social position. It will take a love strong enough to thaw her wounded heart.

July is a Month to Celebrate!

Heaven-sent Warrior Cover

July is known for celebrations and fireworks. In America, we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July. After the fireworks fizzle out, the real celebration starts! My new book, Heaven-sent Warrior, will be released with great fanfare on Wednesday July 18th. This full-length paranormal romance, set in North Carolina, deviates from my normal Scottish characters and shape-shifting dragons. Intrigued? Here is a taste:

 

 

HEAVEN-SENT WARRIOR

CHAPTER 1

Present Day

Raleigh, North Carolina

Henrí Chevalier materialized in human form, stretched his naked limbs, and groaned. Bones, long unused, slid into place. He arched his back, raising both arms toward the night sky. Aching in a dozen places, he inhaled and savored crisp fresh air.

I am free.

Lowering his arms, he flexed all ten fingers, and shook the numbness away. His last memory was of a cold, damp wall at his back. No longer imprisoned, he relished his newfound freedom. Rubbing phantom pain at each wrist, Henrí soon relaxed, while he slid his fingers over one cheek. As he brushed the light stubble, the tips tingled. Moving his hand lower, he paused on the pulse pounding beneath the skin of his neck.

Life beats here. I am alive again.

A clean, grassy scent lingered on the night breeze. The sweetness made his lips twitch into a slight smile. Such normalcy, he thought, even as he turned in a circle with slow determination to get his bearings. Sleep-filled eyes adjusted to the inky night’s low light. Odd forms hovered near, and he fought the urge to crouch low, into a warrior’s stance.

I shall stand my ground this night.

Odd sensations cautioned him to move slowly. Rounded pebbles pressed into the soles of his bare feet until he tripped over something low and hard. His hand shot out into blackness, slamming against something smooth and icy.

Mon Dieu!” Did God care that he was cold and achy, standing alone in a strange place? As if in answer, clouds moved aside, and the moon’s radiance spilled over a trio of statues. Familiarity made his eyebrows quiver. He brushed loose hair off his face and stared at the hard, cold bronze beneath his palm. His breath caught in his throat, remembering the pain, sorrow, and loneliness. Without love, there was no life. One-sided love did not count. This was not the time to feel sorry for himself.
