Have you read Desert Jewely by Natalina Reis?

desertjewelpromodesertjewelpromo2Rebellion brews inside Milenda’s heart as the date for the Trials approaches. As the heiress to the throne of Natale, she is forced to choose a consort from the survivors of the grueling quest across the desert.

Milenda’s heart belongs to Jaali and wants no part in the ancient and cruel ritual, but the Elders—the true rulers of Natale—will not back down.

Jaali was brought from the far North as a child slave. His only chance to be with the woman he loves is to volunteer for the Trials, no matter how dangerous or how much Milenda objects.

Together they begin their journey of discovery and rebellion against the Elders. But will their love be enough or will they lose everything they’ve fought for?

“This was what home felt like. It turned out she could indeed love and be loved.”

What People Are Saying About Desert Jeweldesertjewelpromo3

“Desert Jewel was a great read. I couldn’t put it down once I picked it up. I enjoyed Jaali and Milenda’s story. It was one wrought with peril. Their love was an enduring one that weathered a lot of storms. I have never read a book by this author before but I would like to read her other books. I like her writing style it flowed well and was very easy to dive into her story.”

“Desert Jewel was an interesting story about love, survival, and inner strength. Another impulse request on NetGalley, I was worried that it wouldn’t be as good as its fabulous cover artwork. However, I found myself staying up late at night just to finish it. I was captivated throughout and couldn’t help but keep turning the pages to see what would happen next.”

“I am almost sure that there is going to be a sequel. The story is far from over. I just can’t wait to read the rest of the story!!!”

“I absolutely loved Desert Jewel! Such an incredible adventure and romance! Both Milenda and Jaali were such great characters you couldn’t help but root for their love. Natalina Reis does an incredible job taking you into this world and making you feel all of the emotions of the characters. Milenda is a strong heroine character, which I always love reading about those types of characters, and Jaali is a strong hero who really cares for Milenda deeply. Milenda and Jaali both fight against the norms forced upon them and they both know what they want in life, freedom and real love. I am so happy I had an opportunity to read this book. It really is a hidden gem!”

We Will Always Have the Closet
by Natalina Reis

Petra Galatas sees the world through rose-colored glasses…

Petra has always chosen to see the best in people. Even her ex-husband’s extramarital affairs couldn’t destroy her faith in humanity. However, as much as she craves love, she’s not ready to trust another man with her heart.

The last place Petra thought she’d meet a guy was a closet in her ex-husband’s house…

While investigating Jonas Linden for millions of dollars in art fraud, Sam Corra’s clues lead him into the most unlikely of places—Jonas’ closet. Even less likely was meeting a woman there…a beautiful woman with honey skin and big brown eyes. Though neither of them divulge the reason they’re there, there’s an instant mutual attraction. And when Sam pursues her, he discovers the beautiful woman is none other than Jonas Linden’s ex-wife.

He’s on a mission to prove Jonas’ guilt. She’s determined to prove his innocence…

Unwilling to believe she had been stupid enough to marry a criminal, Petra attempts an investigation of her own, and unwittingly puts herself—and Sam—in danger.

When they both become pawns in a deadly game, money, art, and love are all at stake.

Author Spotlight Natalina Reis

authorspotlightWelcome to the Limitless Library Lounge where I interview fellow authors from Limitless Publishing. Today, I am chatting with Natalina Bell (pen name Natalina Reis) from Woodbridge, Virginia.

Me

limitlesslibrarylounge

Thanks for joining me, Natalina.  Please take a seat and make yourself comfortable.
I understand you have a novel that is just being released by Limitless tomorrow, January 19th. Can you give me some details about it and any of your other works?

WWAHTC CoverI am brand new to Limitless. This is my first book published with them or ever. My soon to be released novel (January 19) is a standalone romance, titled We Will Always Have the Closet. I am currently working on a speculative novel titled The Jewel which I am very excited about.

That’s great. It’s important to have writing goals. Can you describe yours to us in further detail? What do you hope to achieve in the next few years? What are you planning to do to reach these goals?

WWAHTC Teaser 3 (1)I want to write stories that are well written and entertaining. I want to provide the reader with a dream, a brain vacation, a vision of what could be. I have been writing all my life and being published is a life dream coming true. I hope my writing evolves and that my stories bring as much joy to the readers as they bring me as a writer.

That’s awesome, Natalina. I have very similar goals and have also been writing since childhood. A STONE’S THROW was my first traditionally published novel. I self-published my first novel, CLOUDY RAINBOW in 2008 and then took some time off to concentrate on my work as a librarian and mom, but now I’ve been inspired to keep writing and have already finished a sequel that I hope to publish soon. I absolutely love your term “brain vacation.” I feel that most fiction readers want an escape that provides them with entertainment and relaxation. It’s not that they want to stop thinking, but they want to have a more enjoyable focus away from their day-to-day routines.

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your upcoming book or your writing in general?

My upcoming book is a romance that puts more emphasis on romance and less on the physical side of things. Since I love mysteries I have written a bit of that into the story as well. I find it almost impossible to write anything without at least a touch of romance.

That sounds very much like my book, Natalina. Some people have considered my romantic suspense a cozy because I don’t feature any explicit sex either, and I know what you mean that romance is important in a book. Most people enjoy reading romances and mysteries. I like to think that I combine both in mine, and it sounds like you do, as well.

What advice would you give other authors or those still trying to get published?

Stick to it no matter how many times you get rejected. It took me years and I can hardly believe it’s finally happening. Keep writing, sharpening your skills as a writer, exploring where your stories can take you. Also, join a good non-judgmental writing group. My women’s writing group has been a treasure of resources, critique, support and ideas.

Great suggestions. I agree with all of them. Determination is a very important quality for an author to develop, and writing groups can be extremely helpful. We are planning to start one in March at my library as many patrons have shown an interest (I think my book spurred them to start asking). One of our regular patrons who is 90 years old and is doing well mentally and physically is one of the biggest requesters. He has shared with me parts of the legal thriller he is writing. It’s wonderful that someone of that age is interested in publishing.

Besides writing, do you have any other hobbies or interests?

I love reading, music, art, and dancing. But I also love movies, good television, knitting and COFFEE! I am also a linguist who speaks five different languages and really hopes to learn at least one non-Latin alphabetic language before I die.

Five languages? That’s incredible. I wish I’d kept up my college Spanish. I was an A student. Our library has a database that features many languages that can be studied online at home. I wish I had the time to take advantage of it. It sounds like you have a nice variety of interests.

What do you like most and least about being an author? What is your toughest challenge?

I love that writing gives me such a freedom to dream and have an excuse to go into all these fictional worlds without feeling I am totally crazy. But being an author can be also very isolating. People who do not write don’t quite understand the magic of the art you are often left alone with no-one to share your passion. My toughest challenge as a writer is time. I am a full time teacher and I often have a lot of trouble carving time to write. I often walk around for hours with this insane desire to write, a great idea in my head and not a minute to sit down and actually do it.

I have the same issue, Natalina. I work full-time as a librarian. I’ve made it a habit to write an hour each morning before I go to work and that seems to help somewhat. I wish I had more time to devote to it but between work, keeping up with social media, my family, etc. it’s very tough. I know others have this same challenge.
