Body Armor CoverTo say he had a wild side was an understatement.

Nico Micelli showed the world a calm, mild-mannered personality, but under the surface simmered ferocious passions he struggled to suppress. When he accepted a job with the Medici Protectorate, he found it increasingly difficult to temper his emotions. It didn’t help that his charge continuously tested his limits.

Donni Notaro lived under Nico’s protection. She and her sisters were in constant danger simply because of their ancestry. Without the protection of the Brothers, their lives would have been forfeit months earlier. But that security came with a cost—her freedom. Essentially sequestered, she became Nico’s shadow, her clandestine pursuits putting both of them in peril.

To defeat their foes, Nico must not only acknowledge his wild side. He must embrace it. But doing so might take him down a dark path he can never return from.

Book release scheduled for Fall 2017.

Italian WolfHere’s something I didn’t expect to include but was pleasantly surprised that it fits into the plot so organically. I have two favorite animals—the sea otter and the wolf. This story lends itself to including wolves in it. No, despite this being a paranormal romance, they will not be werewolves. Just wolves. Italian wolves, to be precise.

The village of Dozza in Italy is a place that would be of special interest to a designer like Donni.

The center of the town boasts a restored Fortress, which houses (among many other fascinating things) an art collection. Furthermore, the facades of the buildings are painted with various murals, creating an outdoor museum or gallery of sorts.

Prime time to visit is between May and September, because then you can partake in different wine festivals the village offers. Donni is an amateur chef, and she’d really enjoy the gastronomic offerings of Dozza, so Nico picked the perfect location for their date.
