Giveaway and Release Day Party with Kay Dee Royal and her new book: Savage Smoke

Ittttt's Party Time!!!  I have my friend Kay Dee Royal on tonight for a night time release party!!  So if your ready for a "wereing" good time, you have come to the right spot!  Take it away Kay!

Ideas Come Together and a Series Gets Born

Hello Nikki *big hugs*, hello everyone :) Thanks for having me here today and giving me center stage to blat about my Lycan International Investigation Series, all to do with wild paranormal erotic romances, dangerous investigations, crazed criminal rogues and vampires, and to keep it all coming at a good fast pace with every event worse/better than the one before. *grins – rubs hands together*

I’m Kay Dee Royal, author of Savage Smoke – Book 2 (and Staring Into the Eyes of Chance – Book 1) and my ultimate passion is writing erotic romance, whether it be paranormal, fantasy, or contemporary.

This series idea started with a friend who had lost her husband suddenly. She had married the man of her dreams straight out of high school. After the funeral, she found out about her husband’s philandering – I juiced up these tidbits to fit my story.  She’s fifty-something years old and loves everything to do with wildlife, living on a large piece of property which is more like a wildlife reservation.

Meet Olivia, main character for book 1, has a philandering husband only doesn’t know it until he dies, when she swears off all men. She’s fifty-five and owns and operates a wildlife refuge and preserve – plus I added a bonus, she was born with the ability to communicate with animals, psychically.
The Lycan International Investigation Agency is part of my personal draw to investigation shows and books – I threw a paranormal spin to it…and along with that came a dysfunctional family.

What? Paranormals can have dysfunction, too;)

The crux of two brothers – Werewolves – the youngest—sole survivor of the second litter, his mother dies in his childbirth—makes Alpha, and the oldest—a runt from the first litter, who should have been chosen—turns resentment into a deep black hole. I’ve discovered there’s no end of what I can create with this little morsel.

I love reading erotic romance, so of course, Lycans…all species, seem to all have an over-abundance of sexual urges, which always comes across as natural among their packs, meaning lots of occurrences. *grins*

You’ll see my warning on Book 1 and Book 2…told you it continues to ramp-up…in everything, including the sexy explicit partsJ

Thank you for listening;) Now, I have a question for you…
I’m getting ready to write Book 3, Smoke ‘n Bliss…Smoke will do anything to get what he wants. Even if it means kidnapping, impregnating, slaughtering, drugging, or anything else required in making it happen.

I had him dead to rights…seriously, dying in Savage Smoke. I played hell writing the last chapters because his lights were out for good…but, he kept kicking and yelling, insisting he should get the chance at redemption, AND he demanded something else, too. Something he never had before…and it was his due to claim it.

Do you think there’s a chance in hell Smoke can actually pull it off…redeeming himself for Book 3?

Savage Smoke Tags : Paranormal, Erotic romance, Lycan, Kodiak-were, Werewolf, Vampire, Shifters, Dangerous, Supernatural, Investigation Agency, LIIA (Lycan International Investigation Agency), Series, Book Two
Savage Smoke – Book 2 Lycan International Investigation Series
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Sizzling HOT! Warning: Lots of two-somes, three-somes, even more-somes, like it stimulating, arousing, and positively natural…or supernatural.
Tagline: Will Trevor rescue Lindsey in time to save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want saved?

Chance and his LIIA pack of agents search for rogue Lycan mastermind, Smoke, kidnapper of Lindsey and fifteen other human women he plans to use for procreating his own army.Trevor, Chance’s right-hand Lycan, wants his mate back, but believes she’s fallen for her captor. Lindsey loves Trevor but believes he’s given up on her.Will Trevor come around in time to rescue Lindsey and save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want back with Trevor after spending so long apart?

Also available at many other fine e-book stores.

So far, Smoke didn’t share Lindsey with other males, but she was aware of the orgies inside the central building. She heard a few women talk of them. Some even liked them, being surrounded by hard-bodied men hung like rocket launchers. Those women went at it without the use of the stimulation drug Smoke used on everyone else.

She was used to the little needle pricks and welcomed them. It made acting the part with Smoke so much easier, believing in her heart Trevor made love to her, but guarding that fact from Smoke by holding Trevor’s name in the secret place, locked safely away.

Lindsey understood some of the sexual attraction. She had that once, but she couldn’t go there in her mind. Smoke searched her thoughts almost daily and always found if she’d tapped into any memory nuggets of people she loved. He possessed psychic abilities others didn’t. Already, the thoughts of Trevor that had emerged she’d need to bury before Smoke returned.

If an orgy ensued during their pack meeting, Smoke would be preoccupied for a good while. She reached her arm underneath the mattress, where a few weeks ago she saw Smoke slide his journal. Lindsey had fallen asleep with her back to the fireplace. A crack of thunder wakened her in time to witness Smoke closing a journal and placing it beneath the mattress they shared.
              Lindsey touched its leather cover, wrapped her fingers around it, and hauled it out.

He chooses to neglect his duty of finding a primal-mate after watching his father become an empty shell over the loss of his.
A murderous rogue pack draws Chance onto Olivia’s wildlife preserve, sending Olivia’s animal sensitivities into overdrive. Chance and Olivia discover a sizzling force driving them together.

Hi Nikki - thanks so much for having me:) You have an amazing site...and I appreciate all of your time and effort in sending me off with a fun book release party.

You Nikki deserve boxes of the stuff for what I put you through today:) Hugs!

Angela - I'm on board with you - he definitely needs to show some remorse...big time to get my vote OR definitely lights out! *grins*

Of course it would help if he'd give me my pen back.

Pommawolf Emeraldwolfeyes said...

Thank you Nikki for the invitation!
I love anything wolf, and wolf shifters are my first and foremost favorite paranormal. It's in my northwest native American ancestor's blood I
How I missed Kay Dee Royal's series i don't know...but it's now on the top of my gotta have list.
As for redemption..I think it's possible if the heart is strong, and if the person is willing to make a meaningful self sacrificing action. One never knows what it will be...but it will mean everything in the end.
Thanks for the giveaway!


Gabby said...

I kind of agree with you guys, Smoke has to willing, really willing to change in order to get my vote!

I like to think that just about everyone deserves redemption, in my opinion though they have to really try to earn and we as humans have to be willing to except that they're trying to change and be willing to help them!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Unknown said...

Everyone deserves redemption,but they have to be willing to change for the greater good.
Thanks for the chance to win.


Susan W. said...

Obviously he's willing to do anything to get his way but can he follow through on any atonement he might have to make for his past wrong doings? He deserves a chance if he's truely remoseful.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Hi Darcy - thanks so much for stopping in...and so glad you want to read my series (Chance stole my heart).

Hi Sherry - for the greater good - love it:) Good luck in the drawing.

Hello Susan - Remorseful is the real test for him...holding onto hate and resentments for so long...I'm hoping it's possible. Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment - good luck in the drawing.

LorettaLynn//Temprance said...

Maybe, I mean everyone should have the chance. This sounds really good, thank you for the chance

Sheri Fredricks said...

What a great concept for a series! And I love to read a series. Thanks to Nikki for introducing you to me. Looks like an adventure to read!

Anonymous said...

Hi Lorretta - thanks so much for stopping in and giving me your take on redemption...he should have a chance. I guess that's why he survived to Book 3:) Good Luck in the drawing.

Hello Sheri - I'm so glad this looks like something you'd like to read:) I'm so glad Nikki offered me this chance also:) Good Luck in the drawing.

Unknown said...

I believe everyone deserves a chance at redemption. However they must be remorseful for their actions. If he is willing to acknowledge his wrongs and correct those that he can then sure. Thanks for the invite Nikki!

Brenda said...

If he shows true remorse for his actions and truly--deep in his soul--wants to change, then it is totally doable.
His crimes may be great, but we all change over time.
LOL, when I was younger, I had no prob putting a worm on a hook. Now, there's no way. Not because it grosses me out, but because I feel sorry for the worm. LOL, not the same as kidnapping, etc, etc, but now I have empathy and I feel remorse for hurting and killing another living creature.

Excellent post!

susan said...

He really must show he has feelings to really want to show feelings toward others before he is given a second chance. I was so hung up on this story..which is not really my habit but really got into the story. I would love to win this so I could really wrap myself into the books. sue Leech

If he shows remorse and is willing to change, then he deserves a chance.

Everyone deserves a second chance if they are able to see the error of their ways.


Unknown said...

Everyone deserves a chance!

Unknown said...

If he shows remorse for what he did or can make up for it somehow, yes. We all deserve a second chance. But if he doesn't, no.

Thanks for the giveaway!

divavixenqueen said...

If he tries to do everything he can from
not doing what he did before and
help people then yes, he deserves a second chance.

Hi Starla - thanks for the comment...thanks for stopping in:) I agree on the remorse...

Brenda...I know exactly what you're talking about - I love fishing and grew up doing it with my father. It never bothered me to clean them - now I'm constantly sending blessings to them for giving up their lives to sustain ours. I also feel empathy for living things...even spiders (if my DH isn't around - because nothing with 8 legs lives around our place for long).

I agree with others, he needs to show some remorse.

Anonymous said...

Hi DL - Yes...I agree with the remorse part of it...seems to be the common thread to redemption:) Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Good Luck in the drawing:)

Unknown said...

He deserves the chance at redemption, but he really needs to prove that he deserves it, and it's not going to be easy

Mary Preston said...

He deserves a chance at redemption. Will he take it though?

Anonymous said...

Hello K Sher - you're right, it isn't going to be easy for him to redeem his reputation, his soul...part of his and my fight over who should carry the pen...X'ing him out would have been the easiest way out for I give him that - he wants redemption bad:) Good Luck in the drawing:)

Hi Mary - Yes...according to him, he's going for it, but will it be enough for you and me to say, hell, ya, he did it:) LOL Thanks for stopping by:)

Anne said...

Everyone deserves redemption.

Becky N. said...


Thank Ya Girl, for the Invite!! I do believe Everyone Deserves a "Second Chance," after that, however, if they blow it...?! Hmmm?!

Amanda Ray said...

I believe if someone is remorseful of what they have done, they definitely deserve a second chance.
