  1. Stud Muffin...er...Niko thanks you for the interview. He's on a mission right now and asked me to convey his gratitude. Seems Simone, the heroine in book three of this series, has gone off in a snit and gotten herself captured by The Red Hand and taken to Syria. Things are about to get messy, or so he claims.

  2. Loved the interview with Niko....what a brilliantly original way of promoting your novel! Top of the class for out of the box thinking! :) Edith xxx

    1. Thanks, Edith. Sarah and Amie have "Character Quickies" here every Saturday. It's a neat idea, isn't it?

  3. I loved this, too. Smart, sassy. I want more of Niko!

    1. Niko is a complex character. Ruthless at his job, a past player with women, and devoted to his family

    2. Niko sounds like just the right combination of "naughty and nice."

    3. He's perfect for Alyson, that's for sure.

  4. Vonnie, please tell me Mona Lisa'a Room is the first book in this series. I'd hate to think I missed something.
    BTW-I love Niko already.

    1. Yes, it is the first book.

      RAIN IS A LOVE SONG is book two. No release date yet.

      JAZZBEAT OF SURRENDER, which I'm still writing, is the final book of the trilogy.

      Ohhh, I'm thrilled you love Niko. He is a force to be reckoned with. LOL But then so is Alyson in her own way.

  5. I love that the 2nd in Command of the Counterterrorism Unit reads philosophy. Very sexy!
