Author Spotlight – Nadia Braeckel and “Torn Ties”

Please welcome to the blog today a wonderful author, Nadia Braeckel!


Author Nadia Braeckel loves reading and writing romances with spice. The daughter of a Lebanese father and a German-American mother, Nadia sees the world through a unique lens and has a vivid imagination that gives life to her steamy romance characters. Taking inspiration from real-life scenarios, Nadia spins passionate, dramatic stories that leave readers breathless and wanting more, even as they root for the characters to get their happily-ever-after.

Torn Ties is Nadia’s first book, and she’s already busily at work on the second in the series. She resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with her husband and son.



Nadia’s first book is out today – that’s pretty cool, isn’t it?  Check it out:

How can a relationship that starts for all the wrong reasons feel so right?

That’s the question Natalya Zaher keeps asking herself. After all, her daily routine isn’t usually so dramatic…or so damn hot. By day, she works at a local men’s clinic, fending off advances from dirty old men and dealing with her boss’s angry tirades. By night, she sits at home, watching Twilight. Life has been remarkably routine—and lonely—until a chance encounter with a handsome man at the gym turns unexpectedly steamy. The only hang up? He’s already in a relationship. And Natalya wants more…much more.

Alex Bowman isn’t sure what he wants. His long-term relationship has been slowly losing its luster. The sex is dull, and he’s growing frustrated with feeling controlled and demeaned. So when he meets the alluring, radiant young Natalya at the gym, he’s intrigued by her charm and upbeat nature. And when he discovers her sexually adventurous nature, he can’t stop thinking about her…and just how right their relationship seems to be.

But Alex’s girlfriend  doesn’t intend to let her man go without a fight, and she’s certainly not going to play fair. Even worse, Alex has been keeping secrets that threaten not just to destroy two reputations…but threaten to break Natalya’s heart too.

Set in the heart of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Torn Ties is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the last steamy page.


I’ve also got a great interview with Nadia:

Who is your favorite author? I like a bunch of different authors, but not because of their books because the respect I have for their accomplishments and effort they put into their books such as  Nicholas Sparks, E.L. James, Gillian Flynn, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Shari Lapena, James Patterson

How do you describe your writing style? ummm, I would say I’m very sporadic in my writing but I always know the “juice” of the book before I write, I just never know how it will end or begin.

Why should we read your books? Because I write them, keeping in mind, that it’s to entertain and take the reader away from reality and prediction

Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself? Yes

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why? I can’t answer that because so far I have only written one book.

What books have most influenced your life? The Bible

If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why? Gone Girl, because my mind is twisted like that but I feel like it’s even more twisted.

Beatles or Monkees? Why? Beatles, I love their songs

Who should play you in a film of your life? Margo Robbie or Jennifer Lawrence

Nadia’s book is available for sale RIGHT NOW, so go and check it out!
