NBTM Virtual Book Tour + #Giveaway: Moscow Nights by RW Buxton @rwBuxtonAuthor @GoddessFish


Moscow Nights

by R.W. Buxton

GENRE: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance


Erin is desperate to save Gerry from shadowy forces that would do anything to prevent him from fulfilling the prophecy. But when she arrives, he’s with another woman and the worst thing is it’s Tina, his former partner at the FBI.

Can she convince him the threat is real, and not just to him, but Mary his young daughter.

Halfway around the world ominous figures hiding in the night plan the unthinkable and Gerry is the only one that can stop them. The threat is genuine but will he believe her? Will he believe in the prophecy?

Erin must face her own past, a past she thought was over. It opens old wounds that send her careening on a path of destruction. Can she overcome them in time to save Gerry or will she lose everything because of a deep-rooted hurt that can’t be healed?


The car roared into the small town. She turned down the main street and headed for the road out of town. Free from the town’s confines, the country road that led to the highway lay ahead of her. She floored the gas pedal. The scream of the engine thudded in her ears. She pushed in the clutch without letting off the gas and crammed the car into a higher gear. The tires chirped as the car surged forward. She calculated in her mind that the drive with traffic took an hour or a little less. She had to do it tonight in record time, less than thirty minutes. Trees blurred past the window. The ramp to the highway now loomed ahead of her. She pressed the brake and downshifted to take the turn. The car slid but held the road. On the highway she could let the car loose. She prayed she would make it in time.

Lights flickered past in a constant succession as she tore down the highway. She glanced at the speedometer. She was nearing 190 kilometers per hour. It wasn’t all the car could do, so she pushed harder. Her head swam with images of Gerry as he faced Dumitru alone. The possibilities of what might happen to Tina.

Interview with R.W. Buxton

What made you want to become a writer?

I can’t say I wanted to become a writer, I’ve just always loved to write and it just sort of happened. For a long time I wrote short stories, although I never submitted any to be published. I’m not sure what changed, but I decided one day just to give writing a full-length novel a try. It was a bit of a lark and I really had no idea that I would ever publish it, much less write two more. The first one was a long arduous work. I didn’t write an outline and just let it go wherever. In the end I wrote a hundred thousand words of which thirty-five thousand ended up being removed.

What inspired you to write Moscow Nights?

After I finished Beverly Hills torture, the second book in the series, I knew I couldn’t let the story end there. There was more to tell, but too much to include in Beverly Hills Torture. So instinctively I knew there was another book to write. When thinking about where to take the characters so they could achieve their goals, Moscow was the first place that came to mind. Erin, the protagonist, was born there although three-hundred years ago, and I thought for her to return to her home would make a great setting. Also, having visited Russia, I knew it was a beautiful country that would make for an amazing setting.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Moscow Nights?

Erin, who I consider the main character, although it’s pretty evenly split between her and Gerry is a vampire. She’s been in love with Gerry almost since the moment they met. Having been turned when she was only twenty-one, she’s never been able to have a child of her own, but Gerry’s daughter is quickly filling that void. Her main sadness is she has to hide away during the day and can’t spend time with Mary in the way she wants. Erin will do anything to protect Gerry and Moscow Nights presents his biggest threat yet.

Gerry, although he loves Erin, continually stands in his own way when it comes to opening up to her. He’s never been able to understand her desire to kill. He can understand why she needs blood, but has never been able to get over the fact that she kills rather than just takes the blood she needs. In Moscow Nights they face this together and with some luck will move past it.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

First would be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’ve been a Sherlock Holmes fan for years. Over the years I’ve read the complete works too many times to admit, and just about any author who has taken on the task of extending those stories. The writing style is so drastically different from modern writing, but I love it. It’s not just the stories but the style that takes me back to those more shadowy days in London.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next books or what you have planned for the future?

There is yet another book in the Erin Kingsly Series. It’s actually written and most of the edits from the beta read are complete. It takes Erin and Gerry to the conclusion of the Journey they started together in Capital Thirst. Although it does conclude the story line started in Capital Thirst, I’m not sure it completes their adventures. We’ll have to see. I’m toying with some ideas, but nothing is set in stone at this point.

In addition to that, since the beginning of COVID-19 I started work on a new series about a young witch and the confusing world she finds herself in as she comes to grips with her new and growing powers. This is primarily why I haven’t finished the fourth Erin Kingsly novel. I find it difficult to switch back and forth. Midnight Witch has been a slow process, though. You would think being trapped at home as we are, I would be writing non-stop. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

Moscow Nights is by far my favorite of the three that have been published. I had a great time writing this. For me the best part was seeing the characters grow far beyond where they started in Capital Thirst. They face their issues and fears and finally begin to create a family around the love they have for each other. They’ve grown significantly since the first book and are Finally at a place where I’m happy. It’s where I wanted them to be at the end of the first novel, but there was so much that needed to happen.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.

I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst, and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.

I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.

For fun you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.
