Finding a Fresh New Paranormal World with Rebecca Royce

Bookin' It Reviews is very proud to present via Sizzling Promotions EYE CONTACT, a paranormal romance book by Rebecca Royce. Ms. Royce is here today to present a new thrilling paranormal world to us and has already received three five star book reviews. This book is based on a new and dangerous world filled with adventure and laced with the thrill and mystery of love! Join us and let's take a look!

Please help me welcome, Rebecca Royce!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework.  I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.
I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend.  We live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.
I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing.  I've been told I'm a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
I'd love to hear from you!

Finding A Fresh New World

Rebecca, you might ask me, how on earth did you end up writing four active series at the same time?  Well, I would answer, I’m not sure.  And that is the truth.  But each story needed to be told and I was powerless to stop my muse from telling them.

All drama aside, I am so happy to be writing my newest series, The Conditioned, with Decadent Publishing. For me, it is a brand new world.  It takes place ‘now’ but not in the actual ‘now’ but rather a world where, in the past, the government made the decision to start locking up psychics in what essentially amounts to internment camps.  I had to ask the question: How Can You Fall In Love In A World That Wants You Dead Just For Being Born?

Unlike the other series that I write, there is no clear cut ending to this series. Instead, I am surprised by each book and just as surprised as the readers to see how each book will end. Where is The Conditioned going? I’m not sure but I’m hopeful that you’ll come along for the ride!

I particularly like the fact that, given that the book takes place in a ‘now,’ I can call upon all of the technology we have in our world while having the freedom to find out new things because the world is not technically ours.  And, to be honest, I hope it never will be.

Come join me and meet Addison and Spencer.  Their journey is the beginning!

The Conditioned, Book one
Thirty years ago, after the breakdown of an oil negotiation, the President of the United States decided that all people born with unusual abilities, which he would now refer to as “the condition”, would be locked away from the general public where they couldn't harm others. Parents and loved ones of these people, most of whom were children, were forced to turn them in upon penalty of death. Formed to keep the institutions secure, the Committee for the Protection of a Free Society now rules these institutions with an iron fist.

The granddaughter of one the Committee members, Addison Wade has lived her life wary of the institutions and all they represent. A woman of secrets, she is forced to turn to Safe Dawn, one of the facilities designed to hold conditioned people, when her nephew is kidnapped and, despite her best efforts, cannot be recovered. She knows the last thing anyone in 'Safe Dawn' will want to do is to help a Wade with any problems, but she is desperate and out of options.

Spencer Lewis is famous for being the premier conditioned ‘locator.’ There's no one he can't find and he has a soft spot for missing children. But, Spencer has been through a trauma and locating Jeremy Wade may be dangerous both to himself and to those around him. In addition, he takes one look at ice cold Addison Wade and wants nothing more than to knock her down a peg. Never having turned down an opportunity to help a child, he reluctantly agrees to help recover Jeremy.

In a world where nothing is as it seems and every person they encounter has his own agenda, Addison and Spencer will find that the only people they can trust are each other. But how can anyone fall in love living in a world that wants you dead just for being born?

  1. Thank you so much for having me today!

  2. I am in awe of the fact that you write four series and are constantly coming up with plot bunnies for more that you generously donate to your friends.

    I am writing only 1 series and in the development with another and I find that challenging. You are amazing!

  3. Hi Rebecca!
    Very interesting excerpt! I don't think I could handle four series at once. (But wouldn't it be great if I had the opportunity to give it a try!) Good luck with your blog tour!

  4. Sounds like a good read this is a new author for

  5. Four series?

    I need a nap just thinking about that.
