VBT: FROM WITHIN by J.M Walker!














 



synopsis

We live. We love. We die. He is my ultimate undoing. She is my strength. He will destroy me. She will make me whole. I need him more than the control that he craves. I need her more than I need my next breath. He knows me. She sees me. As much as I want to, I can’t let him in. As much as I’ve tried, I can’t let her go. Together, we need him.

about-the-author


When J.M. isn't working her Monday-Friday 9-5 job, she's spending her time reading, writing and with the love of her life.
She's an all-around Canadian girl. Born and raised in a small city. If you don't see J.M. writing, you'll find her with her nose in a book. Whether it's her words or someone else's, she's drawn to it. J.M. loves stories with Alpha broken males and that need to be ripped apart and put back together again. Men that fall to their knees over a wink or a giggle from their females. Two things you will never find J.M. without; her cell phone and lip gloss. If she has both of those items, you have a happy girl. Since starting her writing adventure in 2013, J.M. has met many people, real life, online, in her head and she loves every single one of them. Without the support from others, none of this would be possible and she's grateful for all that has been given to her.

COVER REVEAL: ROGUE'S CALL (King's Riders Book Three)!!

I am so excited for so many reasons! (One of which is I am FINALLY done with this book...LOL!)

So, this is the 3rd book in my epic fantasy series, The King's Riders and I am super in love with this story as much as the cover, and am glad to FINALLY share it with y'all!

It should be out no later than mid-April!

Here you go!



Here's the blurb in case it's too small to read:

She’s on the run, but doesn’t know it…


Raised in the security of the king’s castle, Lady Elissa Durroc remembers nothing of the death of her family or how she survived it. As an elemental mage with control over all four elements, her powers are rare. And coveted by dark magic. None darker than the mage who killed her parents.

When the king learns the mage knows Elissa is alive, he orders her to Greenwald under the guise of choosing a husband. Her protection falls to Sir Alasdair Kearney, a knight whose prowess on the battlefield is rivaled only by his appetite for women.

Alasdair’s not sure what to make of being a glorified nursemaid, despite Elissa’s beauty and intriguing magic. The rogue has rules. Rules that don’t involve being tempted by his noble charge.

Elissa is drawn to the knight, even though he’s not on her list of suitors. Can she guard her heart and her magic? And when the dark mage comes after her, will it be too late to matter?

Endings



There’s no greater feeling for an author than typing “The End.”

It’s like the culmination of everything awesome. The story’s done, and hopefully the couple rode off into the sunset together for their HEA. In the case of mine, of course there’s a fabulous HEA. My inner hopeless romantic wouldn’t have it any other way.

But as much as authors hope readers share the same journey when they read the finish product, a reader can’t 100% understand what it’s like to write a book (unless the reader is a writer, too. Obviously authors read books. I read almost as much as I write)

When it’s my story, my couple, it’s not the same as when I pick up a book by my favorite author. It’s personal. And in a way, I go on as much of a journey as the couple.

I share their ups and downs, when they cry, I cry, when they laugh, that too. When they succeed, I feel like I do, too.

And when the book is over, I hope they feel like *I* succeeded in telling their tale. Then I can get it out in the world and hopefully readers will love them as much as I do.

No matter the book, I always end up with a crush on my hero, and many times my heroine, too. Even if they make me mad, (believe me, sometimes they do) I love them.

Come to think of it, writing a book from start to finish is kinda like raising kids. You want the characters to succeed as you watch them grow and change. You love them and are there for them through the good times and the bad. To get them to adulthood, and send them off into the world!

After such a journey, and spending so much time with them, typing “The End” can be a tad bittersweet. Sometimes I struggle to let go. Even as much as I love to jump to the next couple, the next story.

I guess I mourn a bit. Sometimes I take a day or two to decompress. And of course over-analyze if the book was actually ready to go to my editor. (After I hit send, of course).

Then those days, I think of them, often dream of them and wonder if I missed anything. Then I put those thoughts off until edits come back…lol.

Even if I start that next book, realigning my focus can be a challenge. The new book’s characters have to get in my face and remind me whose turn it is. Sometimes I need that, too.

No matter how many books I write, I love all my couples, and all my characters. They carry a small piece of who I am with them. That’s another neat thing about writing. They mean as much to me as my readers do!
