Birthday Feature: Meet Author Johnny Ray

Today instead of my normal Monday post, I wanted to introduce you to an author I became acquainted with through Twitter. Today’s his birthday, and to help celebrate I told him I’d highlight some of his romantic tales. Happy birthday, Johnny Ray! 

About the birthday guy:
Johnny Ray is an award-winning novelist, adventurer, and a true social animal, especially if he has coffee in the morning and wine at night. Fun fact: Johnny loves to dance, particularly salsa and tango, and is a former dance champion.

I’ve selected three books of his to showcase today. Check them out on Amazon!

Her Honor's Bodyguard
Romantic Suspense

Vance had always been extremely proud of Noella, and just because his life had been ruined, he saw no reason why she had to have the same faith. When his dad died, leaving him and his mother penniless, he dropped out of law school and ended his relationship with Noella, but in doing so, he stopped a scandal that could have ruined her family. These secrets he would never let her know. Ironically, years later, she would be instrumental in ruining his career with the Tampa police force.
After Noella finished law school and started pursuing her goal of working up the ranks in judgeships, she never considered inviting another guy into her life. When someone attempts to threaten her into vacating her seat on the bench, she knows of no one else she really trust as much as Vance, who now has a successful bodyguard and private detective business.
She knows that Vance might hate her for her part in his dismissal from the police force, but what he will never know is that she actually saved him from going to prison. Additionally, she now thinks he was framed, and perhaps by the same people who are threatening her. 
As the number of attacks on her life increases, Vance soon has no choice but to offer her his protection, and in spite of everything, when they see each other again, their old attraction for each other returns. She wants the truth. He wants the truth. However, making the ultimate sacrifice is not always easy to understand, whether given or received. Ultimately, could they now trust each other with these secrets?

The Journey to Whitestone
Paranormal Romance

As Jacquelyn Parker struggles with her life spinning out of control, resulting in a bitter divorce, and her career ruined, she is sucked into a sinister world of late-night sleazy bars. It is her last minute prayer that fortunately finds its way to the Dream Master who controls the gates to Whitestone, a side door to heaven, and the next step in enlightenment. From her dreams she learns that she only has one chance to reunite with her one true love and advance to the next level of enlightenment.
In order for Jacquelyn to master the four steps of enlightenment and find her true love, the Dream Master summons the assistance of other enlightened ones who teach Jacquelyn various philosophies from the Tai chi to the Karma Sutra to guide her path.
After centuries of missing her true love in time and space, Jacquelyn has only one last chance to get it right, and live the ultimate happy ever after life. If she is unsuccessful, however, she will have to live with the tragic failure forever.

Models and Lovers
Contemporary Romance
Buy on Amazon

Thomas (Tommy) Conseco, the frightfully delicious owner of one of the top modeling agencies in New York City, demands respect which he has so
rightfully earned. Aspiring models from around the world would sacrifice anything to become one of Tommy's "girls" fully knowing he can make them a legend, or send them home crying. Tommy has one rule he has followed without exception. He never gets personally involved with
anyone in the modeling industry, and as far as sex with his models and
employees is concerned, it's strictly off limits.
Balarie Danson may not have the glamorous looks of a super model, but she's bright, attractive and terrific at her job booking talent for the agency, especially the male models. She's heard the rumors, but the sparks flying between them are telling her Tommy's looking for more than her talent as a booking agent. But Balarie is also looking for more than a one-night stand. So if Tommy intends to break his long-standing rule and seduce this woman into his bed, he'll also have to let her into his heart because Balarie won't settle for anything less than a love that lasts forever.

On Mondays, I gab about pretty much anything! For more gab, please join me on Twitter or Facebook. I love talking to people.

J. Rose Allister is the author of more than twenty-five books, primarily romance and erotic romance. A former editor and submissions director, she now works as a mild-mannered hospital secretary by day, naughty writer by night.
