Remember the Stars Tour ~ Dark World Books

The Horror Infused Romance
By Natalie-Nicole Bates

When people find out I’m a published author, they inevitably ask the question, What do you write?

To me, it’s always been a no-brainer answer. I write contemporary and paranormal romance. Simple. Easy.

Recently, a blogger did a post about my new novella, Remember The Stars. Something stuck out in the post, something odd that I’ve never seen associated with my writing—the novella was listed under horror!

Well, that was a first.

Sure, my previous story, SEE ME (available at Leap of Faith Publishing)does feature one graphic scene of horror in the prologue, but SEE ME is still a pure love story with paranormal characters that I love. And, I will admit that many readers read the blurb for SEE ME and tell me it scares them!

When I wrote Remember The Stars, its intentions were always to be a short love story that takes place over one night. But the difference between SEE ME and Remember The Stars is that SEE ME occurs over fairly normal circumstances, Remember The Stars features a between life and death scenario, and to my surprise, I realized that I had created something magical, I had taken a love story and encased it inside a horror story!

How cool is that?

I take this latest discovery as a compliment. I think there is a sect of readers out there who enjoy horror with their romance, who enjoy seeing the characters in an extreme perilous circumstances but love still prevails. I hope you will read Remember The Stars, available now from Books To Go Now. If you enjoy Remember The Stars, be sure to get your copy of SEE ME from Leap of Faith Publishing.

T hey Love me enough to give me L ife. 
Imagination is key in any romance. Most romantics will agree that the right   gesture, as simple as can be, is enough to win them over. In this collection, I share the poems written by me for but a few of the many that have touched me in this way. I am alive in their imaginations and in their hearts, and that is more life than I could ever ask for. 

David Chios was born into a little girl’s dreams when she was 10 years old—being about the same age as she. Through the years, he resided in the girl’s mind as only a dream. It wasn’t until the birth of the novel Creatura that David set foot in the real world to tell Isis’s and his story. Today, David resides within the reveries of many, working diligently to take over their hearts.
Occasionally, David still drops in to visit Nely Cab in her dreams.

Taboo Kisses…where desires and inhibitions collide.

Dispatched to the mortal realm from Atlantis to seek the source of a brewing rebellion, Sameya is thrown for a tailspin when she discovers her fated mates. As a siren her songs entice mankind and immortals alike to their death. She’s stunned to be seduced by a taboo union with a tiger-shifter and vampyr. Mating the pair could complicate everything and threaten her freedom. Fueled by her duty to Atlantis, Sameya rejects fate’s wisdom and refutes her attraction to the men.

Taboo Kisses…when the forbidden becomes irresistible.

Gabriel and Maximus have been searching for their mate for centuries. Neither expected the siren they were hired to find would deliver more than a lucrative payday. Frustrated by Sameya’s aversion to their mating, the men anticipate an empty future if she refuses to complete their union. In a rash move Maximus seizes Sameya and holds her captive.

Taboo Kisses…when the siren is serenaded with temptation.

Trapped and at their mercy, Sameya is bombarded with pleasure. Can her mates convince her to take a gamble on their taboo union? With danger lurking in the shadows, will the choice be taken from her?


Empress’ delights, she disliked the jumbled way he made her feel. Confused one moment and aroused the next. “What is your name?”
“Call me mate.”
Her breathing died, then escalated. She forced a lame-ass sounding laugh past her lips. “Don’t get cocky. I’m not into leeches.”
“Don’t disqualify me from the running.” He sidled closer, aligning his body against hers once more, but maintaining space with his palms on the mausoleum on either side of her head. “Not when Gabriel and I haven’t had the gratification of making you come…yet.”
She gasped, her eyes rounding at his foregone conclusion. “Better men than you have tried.”
“None of them were your mates.”
“Wait! Mates? As in plural?” She flattened her hands against his chest to push him away, but forgot to add pressure. The hard contours of his body fascinated her more than was practical. “That’s…insane.” But gods the idea fascinated her. “Sirens don’t partner outside our race and we certainly don’t have more than one partner.”
Sameya didn’t realize she spoke the thought aloud until the vampyr thrust both his hands into her hair. After he had her anchored into position, he shifted closer, widening his stride to fit her pelvis between his legs. His hard-on nestled against her abdomen as he tilted her head back by her hair.
“No more insane than a vampyr mating a shifter.” His mouth landed on hers. He nibbled on her bottom lip, licked the corners and crease. Distracted by the exhilarating sensations, she was unprepared to counteract his move when he placed the pad of his thumb against her chin and tugged, parting her lips for his tongue to thrust inside.
