Today it is my pleasure to Welcome author Nora Flite to HJ!
Spotlight&Giveaway

Hi Nora and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, Royally Bad!

 

Please summarize the book for the readers here:

Kain Badd looks great on paper: rich, handsome, and he’s even a prince. But after spending a few minutes together, Sammy sees the real him—arrogant, possessive, and too hot for his own good. If she hadn’t agreed to help plan his sister’s wedding, she could have avoided him. Instead, she’s waking up in his bed after an unforgettable night she definitely wants to forget. But he won’t let her.

When Sammy thinks her life can’t get any crazier, the wedding is raided by the police, and she spends her first-ever night in jail. The irresistible Kain isn’t just bad in name—his family is connected to a dangerous underworld. Now she’s mixed up in a power struggle between his family’s empire and their rivals. She has no choice but to put herself back in this filthy prince’s extremely capable hands.

Sammy must trust Kain to keep her safe. She’s just not sure she can trust herself to resist temptation.
 

Please share the opening lines of this book:

Fingers crawled up the outside of my thigh. They might as well have been cutting through the layers of my organza dress, because my skin tingled like he was touching me directly.

Who was he, you ask?

Dressed in a crisp, midnight-blue suit that didn’t fit his bad boy persona—and a cocky smirk that totally did—Kain Badd was the biggest pain in my ass since I’d tried on my first thong. Sure, the guy was cut from marble, and his eyes were the kind of blue that was reserved for Photoshop magazine edits . . . but he was a dick.

 

Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

  • Originally, the Badds were actually called the Royals. But another popular series released around the time I was writing the book, and they had also named their family the Royals, so… I changed it to something that fit even better!
  • I set the book in Rhode Island, which is where I grew up. As a kid, you knew to NEVER go to Providence, especially Federal Hill, because of the mafia activity there. I used a lot of that “common sense” fear about the area when writing this book. Same for the bits about Newport– I loved touring the mansions there! And so, of course, the Badds HAD to have a big mansion there as well.

 

What first attracts your hero to the heroine and vice versa?

Kain is first attracted to Sammy because he catches her dancing freely in her bridal shop. Seeing someone acting to silly and vibrant isn’t something he’s used to. It’s a breath of fresh air.

For Sammy, she’s attracted to Kain at the start because he’s– well, he’s a smoking hot guy with tons of tattoos! Haha. Of course, the things she likes at first are also what push her away; she’s smart, she knows cocky guys might be sexy, but boy, are they trouble.
 

Using just 5 words, how would you describe hero and heroine’s love affair?

Hallmark card set on fire. 😉
 

What can you share about their first kiss…

Sammy thought she could go for it, kiss him, and that would be enough to get Kain out of her system. Spoilers: she was very wrong.

 

If your book was optioned for a movie, what scene would you use for the audition of the main characters and why?

Oooh. I love that question. I’d say the opening scene where Kain’s sister’s wedding is raided by the police, and Sammy has NO CLUE what’s going on as she gets arrested, would definitely be crucial. It’s such a funny moment that really nails home that Kain Badd and his family are total bad news, and sets up the tone for the rest of their story.

 

What are you currently working on? What other releases do you have planned for 2017?

I just finished Royally Ruined, which is book two of the Bad Boy Royals series and focuses on Costello, the oldest son of the family. That’s out in October of 2017. I’m also working away currently at something lighthearted, sexy and fun– it’s about a modern day prince who falls for his dog walker. I hope people love it!
 

Thanks for blogging at HJ!
