Welcome prolific erotic romance writer, Rebecca Royce!

Hi, Rebecca! Welcome back. I am pretty sure this might be your third visit to my blog so it's great to see you back...and also a good indication of how hard you're working, lol!

Good luck with your tour! Let's get started with the questions...

1)   Did you set any goals for 2012?

For writing or the rest of my life? LOL. Yes, in all cases. But, I’ll share the writing ones. I have a list of publishers I’d like the chance to work with and I have a list of books that have been swarming around in my mind that I’d like to write.

2)   What is the best part of the writing process for you?

Seeing the book come out.

3)   The worst part?

The Waiting.

4)   What is the book you wish you’d written?

Anything Nalini Singh writes. She’s brilliant.

5)   Favourite author/s & book/s?

Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling novels. 

6)   Tell us about your latest release?

Darkest Wolf is the seventh book in the Westervelt Wolves series. It is Rex’s story and the second to last book in the series.

7)   Tease us with a blurb/short except

The smells of human overindulgence wafted through his nose, making him want to turn on his heel and go out the way he’d gone in.
Rex Kane observed the scene before him with a strange amount of detachment, considering he was currently seeing his mate for the very first time. Two women--no, witches, he corrected--lay in strangely positioned forms frozen on the floor. Twins, he would guess them to be. Possibly even identical. He sniffed the air. Yep, they had matching scents. They were the very rare, but absolutely possible oddity, of identical twins. He would never be able to tell them apart, not by smell anyway.
His gaze moved slowly over the diner’s kitchen. At the moment, the twin witches offered no threat to him. They’d been frozen. He had no idea how long they’d stay immobile and, truth was, he didn’t particularly care. Witches didn’t frighten him. They annoyed the piss out of him--there was a difference.
The unconscious man, who, unless his nose was completely off, would wake up again shortly, also didn’t bother him. No, the elderly gentleman seemed to be temporarily stunned. He was also human. Not a threat.
But Rex did feel nervous and, considering how rarely anxiety bothered him, he was willing to acknowledge the sensation for a few brief seconds before he would deny it had ever happened completely. He raised an eyebrow and forced his attention to stay on the source of his temporary anxiety: his mate.

8)   What is your favourite attribute of the hero and heroine?

They’re both strong and tough while also being misunderstood.

9)   What’s next?
Right now I’m writing my next Outsider book

10)                  Tell me where you write?

All over my house. The bedroom.  The dining room.  The living room. Sometimes Starbucks.

11)                  Where would you like your career to be in 5 years?

I hope I’m still taking risks and writing stories people want to read.

12)                  Where can we find you?

Darkest Wolf
by Rebecca Royce



Rex Kane has always known he was different than his brothers, down to the fact that when he shifts into his wolf form, his coat is completely black. Always in trouble, he is given one more chance by his brother Tristan, the Alpha of the Westervelt pack, to bring back to their island a witch who can stop some of the magical assault that has plagued their war-torn home. Rex knows he has one last chance to set things right. Everything depends on him and he cannot fail.

Elizabeth Willow has been cursed to look so repulsive no human eyes can bear to view her. Raised in a gentle coven of witches, she is ill prepared for the realities of the harsh world she now lives in. Raised to mistrust wolf-shifters as witch-killers, she cannot seem to help being drawn to Rex. Even if she doesn't believe she is his so-called mate. He can see her as she really is and is the first person to look her in the eyes in years. Although she is not naturally devious, she sees no choice but to use Rex to gain her own freedom and her families' safety.

Together, Rex and Elizabeth will see just how evil the people around them can be. If they can trust their hearts, perhaps they will survive another night. If not, both of their battles will never be won.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
