J.D. Monroe

Today I’m happy to welcome J.D. Monroe to the blog. She’s answering a few questions and telling us more about her books. Please help me welcome J.D.!

Featured Author Q and A:

Can you tell us a little bit about your writing: What genres do you write? Do you prefer to write one genre over another? 

I love paranormal, fantasy, and sci-fi romance! Anything that takes place in a magical or futuristic world is right up my alley. If it’s too realistic, I don’t want it! 

What is your newest/upcoming release? Tell us about the book and series.

My next release is The Rogue’s Curse, book 5 of my Cursed Blood series. This series is a paranormal romance series featuring complicated, damaged vampire heroes who suffer from fairytale-inspired curses. 

I love this series because it ticks so many boxes for me – paranormal romance, badass vampires, smart heroines, a magical world right under the noses of the mundane world, found family, and plenty of steam!

The Rogue’s Curse features Paris Rossignol, a fan favorite character from the previous books. We’ve gotten glimpses of his flirty nature and his fierce loyalty, always with the sense that there’s a lot more going on under the pretty face. There’s also a ton of excitement going on in the vampire world, with rival courts and vampire hunters contributing to the chaos. 

It releases on October 26, and I can’t wait for readers to meet Paris and his beau, Misha!

What is your favorite thing about the Coastal Magic Convention?

I love Coastal because it has such great programming and incredible author guests but in a cozy, relaxed setting. I love that readers and authors can connect through the events both online in the months leading up to the event and in person. It’s a great experience for everyone!

I have a super cute calico cat named Matilda. She is super sweet, and she started out as my “porch kitty.” She belonged to my former neighbors and came to visit me all the time. After a while, I would come home and find her already laying on my porch waiting for me!

When they moved, they asked if I wanted to take her. And now she’s my Chunky Calico Princess! She’s very sweet and affectionate.

What are a few of your favorite reads from 2023?

Right now I’m reading some nonfiction marketing books (not terribly exciting) as well as some excellent fantasy romance and some regular fantasy. I’m reading Blood of Elves from the Witcher series, and restarting A Court of Thorns and Roses since I never finished the series!

The Rogue’s Curse by J.D. Monroe

Book Cover of The Rogue's Curse by J.D. MonroeLove is the cruelest curse of all.

Paris Rossignol has watched his court suffer for centuries, only to find hope as fate brings soulmates to his loved ones. One by one, he watches his brothers find love and break their curses. He has fought and bled to unite them, but still he is alone. His curse still haunts him, stealing his sleep and threatening his sanity. 

With Atlanta under attack by a vicious vampire king, there’s no time to think about true love and soulmates. Now serving as the right hand of a new vampire court, Paris bears the burden of protecting his family by taking down the greatest threat he has ever faced. Outnumbered and outmatched, the vampires of Atlanta are losing the war against Carrigan Shea. Devotion trumps Paris’s wounded pride and forces him to accept help from the Sanguine Crown.

Help comes in the form of Misha Volkov, a handsome blood witch with a dark past. Misha is all business, but he can’t help being curious about Paris and the secrets behind that charming smile. And when he gets a glimpse of who Paris really is, he has a new mission to make Paris his.

Together, Paris and Misha will take on the battle of a lifetime, but every curse comes with a cost. And this time, it may be too much for either to bear.
