Guest Post: “Paranormal Heroes” by N.J. Walters

Drakon's Promise N.J. Walters

I’m a writer, but I am also a reader. I love to curl up with a good book and lose myself in a story. Like any reader, I have my favorite heroes. They’re usually the emotionally or physically wounded, the anti-heroes, those tough men who don’t believe they could ever be anyone’s hero. Flawed and sometimes broken, they nevertheless stand head and shoulders above the usual leading men.

There are far too many to list them all, but here are five of my favorite paranormal romance heroes.

  1. Rhage from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I admit that I put off reading this series when it first came out because the blurb from the first book just didn’t hook me. But it kept getting such great reviews I ended up reading the first three books one after another, and I fell in love with the brotherhood, but most especially with Rhage. He’s handsome, but it’s not his looks that drew me in. It was his tortured soul and his huge capacity for love. How can you not love a vampire who can morph into a purple dragon to save the people he loves?
  1. Kaleb Krychek from Nalini Singh’s Heart of Obsidian. I was a huge fan of her Guild Hunter series, but had never read any of her Psy-Changeling series. Then I read about Heart of Obsidian and bought it, even though it meant starting in the middle of a series. Kaleb is arguably the most dangerous man on the planet. The only person he ever loved was kidnapped and it has taken him years to find her. The ones who took her from him will pay, even if it means he has to lay waste to the world.

Q&A: N.J. Walters of WOLF IN HIS HEART

Wolf in his Heart N.J. Walters

We love a good Paranormal Romance. Is there anything more intriguing than an incredibly beautiful man who can transform into an equally beautiful animal or awe-striking creature whenever he wants? What goes into writing something so out of this world? Luckily, N.J. Walters, author of Wolf in His Heart, out today, is here to answer our questions about what influences her work!


FAVORITE MOVIES:

 

What are your five favorite movies with romance or romantic elements?

Some of my choices might surprise some people, but my absolute favorite movies with romantic elements are:

  1. The Crow. I know it’s dark and violent, but at its core it’s a love story.
  2. Ladyhawke. It’s heartbreaking.
  3. Jane Eyre. I love a dark, wounded hero.
  4. P.S. I Love You. Heartbreaking but a true love story
  5. Titanic

 

Describe your favorite scene from each one (you can include a Youtube clip if you want as well).

The Crow—My favorite scene is near the end of the movie where Eric and Shelly are finally united and at peace.

Ladyhawke—My favorite scene has to be the transformation one where they almost touch.

Jane Eyre—My favorite scene is again near the end when all seems lost for Rochester and Jane returns to be with him in the end.

P.S. I Love You—I don’t have a favorite scene. I love the entire movie.

Titanic—Jack gives Rose the strength to not only survive but to become who she was meant to be. My favorite scene is the one where he sketches her.

Is there anything sexier than a man who likes to cook?

Most women are charmed by a man who knows his way around the kitchen. I think it speaks to our primal instincts. Our men no longer have to hunt for food. (They can, but most men just head to the supermarket and pick up a pack of steaks to toss on the barbeque.) By cooking a special meal, a man is showing his woman and his family just how much he cares.

I knew the first moment Gator Rollins stepped onto the pages of Wolf at the Door, the first Salvation Pack book, that he was special. Even though he seems laidback, he’s earned his nickname. He’s fast and deadly when it comes to protecting those he loves. He’s one tattooed, badass wolf.
