BE MY BUTTERFLY by Natalie-Nicole Bates





Graveyard fae Perron Morneau arrives at Crimson Moon Hollow with a dual purpose.

To reacquaint himself with the only woman he ever really loved, butterfly shifter, Lulu Garnier. Lulu was the woman who once saved his life.

At the same time, he plans long-awaited revenge on his first wife, Tullie LaCroix, who is at the resort to marry her long-time love, Neyla Bennett.

Decades earlier, Perron was cast out of the Paris catacombs where he owned and operated a successful mushroom farm. When a virus raged through the catacombs, Perron was infected and cast out. Tullie immediately sold the mushroom farm, took the money, migrated to the surface, and began her life anew, believing Perron to be dead.

Now, Perron must tread a fine line to keep his past life and current plan from Lulu.

When his revenge is nearly complete, whose relationship will still be standing? Will his blind thirst to revenge the past destroy his future with Lulu, the woman he really loves?

Interview Questions with Natalie-Nicole Bates:


1.    Can you tell us a little about your books?


I write mostly contemporary, historical, and contemporary romance. My first published release was in 2011, which was a short story called Antique Charming.

2.   What book did you enjoy writing the most?

This is tough. I would have to say that right now, BE MY BUTTERFLY was my favorite to write.


3.   If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it? 


I never really experience writer’s block, but what I do experience unfortunately is procrastination. Just not being able to sit long enough to write meaningfully. I don’t force it, and the drive returns. I find putting myself on a bit of a schedule helps keep me focused.


4.   Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby writing?


Coffee and either cookies or donuts!

5.    How do you come up with your characters' names?


I usually just let the names come to me. But if I’m looking for something specific – like a character trait or a nationality, I’ll use the baby name sites for inspiration.


6.    If you could be friends with one of your characters, which one      would you choose?


Thaddeus Anderton from the series THE ALBION: 1892, that I share with my very talented author and friend, Jennie L. Morris.


7.    If you had a superpower, what would it be?


Raise the dead.

8.   What writing projects are you currently working on?


I’m currently putting the finishing touches on a paranormal story called TIME OF THE LILACS for The Flower Shop Series. It will release April 25, 2022.
