RJ Scott on Undercover Lovers ~ Blog Tour, Guest Blog, Rafflecopter Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank RJ Scott for stopping by today.

Bodyguards-4

Title: Undercover Lovers
Author: RJ Scott
Publisher: Love Lane Books
Cover Artist: Meredith Russell
Genre: M/M Romance

 

Blurb:

Even if Ross and Kyle make it out of this alive, will the secrets in Kyle’s heart stay safe?

Kyle gets caught up in a case that is entirely unrelated to Bodyguards Inc. Not only does he abruptly need time off, but he has to have absolute trust and complete support from Ross without being able to tell Ross a thing.

CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer needs Kyle’s help with a case of a geneticist and a missing formula. Trouble is being led right to Kyle’s door, endangering the life of the team he has built and the man that he loves.

Going undercover, with Ross as his husband, is the worst kind of torture in so many ways, but it is the only answer. Kyle and Ross may well live through this but Kyle is convinced his heart won’t survive.

THINGS I LEARNED FROM WRITING ACTION SCENES

Similar to writing sex, an action scene needs to be choreographed. In my head I know exactly how a scene will go, but getting those scenes on paper is altogether a very hard thing ™. I begin by sketching the highlights with words. This can be as simple as, see bad guy, gun, lose gun, kick, floor. Then I expand the scene by starting again. I have the plan in my head and I simply sit and type away until I have a rough scene. Then I read it and focus on how it looks in my head, before adding in the extra parts like motivation or character expansion.

How a character deals with an action scene is also very telling. In  Undercover Lovers Ross is put in a vulnerable and deadly situation. How will he handle this? He’s not trained, he isn’t an ex soldier, or ex black ops, or an ex cop, he’s just Ross the OCD guy with a love of stationary. And, what will Kyle think having the man he loves in peril?

Action scenes can often be empty of storyline, they just occur, and that is fine if either side there is meaning to the action scene. I find most of my character defining moments occur in a gun fight, or an argument, or when the bad guys seem to be winning.

DO you have a favourite action scene in a book?

About the Author

RJ-ScottAbout RJ

RJ Scott has been writing since age six, when she was made to stay in at lunchtime for an infraction involving cookies. She was told to write a story and two sides of paper about a trapped princess later, a lover of writing was born.

 

As an avid reader herself, she can be found reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror. However, her first real true love will always be the world of romance where she takes cowboys, bodyguards, firemen and billionaires (to name a few) and writes dramatic and romantic stories of love and passion between these men.

 

With over seventy titles to her name and counting, she is the author of the award winning book, The Christmas Throwaway. She is also known for the Texas series charting the lives of Riley and Jack, and the Sanctuary series following the work of the Sanctuary Foundation and the people it protects.

 

Her goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.

  1. I really enjoyed the Texas and Sanctuary series(es?) and this one has been on my list for a while. The book sounds like it will be great!

  2. Thanks for the post and contest! I can’t think of a favorite action scene, but I do thing it must be tough to write them so the reader does not get lost. If I can follow the action and also learn more about the characters and/or story arc – that is the best!

  3. I have quite a few action scenes I can think of offhand. One of my favourite being from JF Smith’s book Latakia although it has quite a few action scenes, including hostage rescue, and has navy seals. Then another from one from another of my favourites Guarding Morgan (by RJ Scott).

    Thank you for an interesting post on the thoughts behind scene development, as well as for the giveaway contest 🙂
