To start off our week we have a worthwhile series to hear about that should be on everyone TBR list. Lisa Renee Jones is a very busy gal, and we appreciate her taking the time to visit and tell us about some of her fantastic books

Hi everyone and thanks for inviting me to talk about my Zodius Series. I came up with the series many years ago when I use to go to Vegas a couple times a year and not only loved the experience there but the idea of Area 51. I had an editor at a big publishing house read a romantic suspense and she wanted to know why I wasn’t writing paranormal because I had a voice for it. I’d actually already been pondering an idea so that was the push I needed.
I love alpha shifters like Lora Leigh but it was so done. So many people had shifters. So I wanted to be fresh and I kept thinking about Area 51. My ex was Army and his entire family was Special Forces.  I’m a big fan of Resident Evil  so I started thinking what about a genetic experiment on Special Forces soldiers? And bingo. There came the idea.
I originally wrote the series as my Underground Guardians Series and left it behind to write for Nocturne and Blaze and do Various New York anthologies. The characters still stuck with me though so years later I went back to it and realized I’d grown as an author and there was more I wanted to do with the series so I gave it a rebirth as my Zodius Series. I’d written the Guardians way back in 2002 or 2003. So my Guardians inspired my Zodius series but its not at all a connected series.
I’m excited to be going to Barnes and Noble for a signing on the 26th of this month. So come see me in Vegas!
You can find the details here:
And I have a huge blog party going on through the 15th so there is still time to enter.

General Powell from book 1 has returned and he’s developed a way to create and control a new generation of female GTECHs. He plans to use these women to bring both, the Renegades and the Zodius soldiers, back under his command. The world will be his. Now, Damion, a Renegade, who readers met in book two, will be pitted against one of those soldiers, a woman destined to be both his Lifebond and his enemy. Damion will become her only hope of salvation and their trust in each other the only chance they have to save the world from a madman.

  9. I really enjoy this series, and am looking forward to reading Damion. It reminded me of a sort of FBI type romantic suspense with a paranormal twist. I like the smart feisty ladies, too. This combination definitely works!

  10. I loved The Storm That Is Sterling and can't wait to read the rest of the series!
