The last thing the sassy, headstrong VP executive wants is an Alpha male who breaks all the rules, but when she meets Antonio De Luca, her steely façade starts to crumble under his gaze. He's exactly the kind of man who can unravel her straight-shooting reputation and she's not so convinced that's a bad thing.  As they grow closer, her ability to resist her desires begins to waver.

Before either can settle into their new roles of parent and newly-minted Don of the De Luca Cartel, people from their sordid pasts take their vengeance a step further.

 

Distinguishing friend from foe, acquaintances from hired guns is only the beginning of the trouble they’ll face. If Antonio can’t bring this madness to an end, he may very well lose not only his new title, but lose the family he fought so hard for.

Welcome, Chiquita! Thank you for joining us today and taking the time to answer a few questions!

 


Where were you born/grew up at?

 

I was born and raised in Memphis TN, went to college in AZ and currently live in California

 

 

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!

 

I won an award for a short film that I wrote and directed. Also, have my own production company.

 


What are you passionate about these days?

 

I'm Passionate about creating stories that are different from the norm of what your use to dealing with a variety of characters that get themselves in situations and I have to find a way to pull them together again.

 


Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

 

First series “Antonio and Sabrina Struck In Love an amazon best selling series

 


What is something unique/quirky about you?

 

I write film and tv screenplays on top of romance novels.

 


What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

 

I enjoyed the back and forth fight that Sabrina put up with Antonio. She wasn’t falling for the flowers and sweet talk that men tend to do to get the girl.

 


How did you come up with the title of your first novel?

 

A fun fact is that my book is based off my first screenplay I wrote ten years ago.

 


If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

 

I would like Tika Sumpter to play the lead because she plays many diverse roles and can go from comedy, to drama in a second.

 


Describe your writing style.

 

My writing style is Drama, raw, spicy, real.

 


What is your favorite part of this book and why?

 

Favorite parts are the scenes with Sabrina and her girlfriends. We all have that friend that will call us out on our shit and get us into situations that sometimes benefit us or we end up in trouble and Sabrina is often in situations because of Janice, but she means well and will fight anybody that hurts her friend.

 


If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

 

I would spend time with Janice and we’d go to Happy Hour and gossip about what’s happening in her life and mines. She has a way to make you laugh, cry, and build you back up to be strong and love yourself.

 


If your book had a candle, what scent would it be?

 

 

My book scent would be cotton candy. Sweet with a little kick to leave a lasting taste in the air

ABOUT THE BOOKS


Addicted to You
SAPD SWAT Series Book 2
by Nikki Mays
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Comedy

 


Michelle is my addiction. She’s sweetness and light wrapped up in a delicious package. Almost as delicious as the confections she makes. Until now, I’ve kept my distance to make sure my darkness doesn’t taint her.


She’s better than a killer who sits behind a scope.

 

I watch her from afar. Getting dragged under her spell a little further with every sweet smile and mischievous grin. I know I’ll cave one day, give into the craving to be near her. Being in her presence is a feeling like no other, one I can’t seem to resist.

 

Unfortunately, I’m not the only one living under her influence. While I was watching her, someone else was watching too. But she belongs with me, no matter what anyone else wants.

 

Now I need to make sure she gives me my next fix of her, even if she’s too stubborn to admit she wants to. She’s my addiction, cure and redemption all rolled into one. Her soul calls out to my own. I’ll make sure she’s as addicted to me as I am to her. She’ll crave me - if it’s the last thing I do.

Surrender to You
SAPD SWAT Series Book 1

 

 


Mellie:

 

Mellie has been hypnotized by a pair of gorgeous green eyes, attached to a very yummy package for months now. Unfortunately for her, her brain goes on hiatus anytime Morris Jackson is around. Looking like a bobble head whenever he asks her anything isn't the best way to go about getting a man like him interested. Not like ruggedly handsome men go for quirky, accident prone introverts like her. Plus, even if she did have a snowballs chance in hell with him, him being her brothers SWAT teammate doesn't bode well for her. A girl can dream though!

 

Morris:

 

Those blue eyes sucker punched him the minute he looked into them. It felt like the ground had literally gone out from under him. Mellie is everything that he could ever want and everything that he shouldn't have. Even if he didn't know that she's too good for a guy like him, her brother would never be okay with it. He is over protective and proud of it. But at some point you have to say screw the consequences and go after what you know is meant to be yours.

 

 

Too bad someone wasn't happy for them when they found their way to one another. Someone will make sure they don't stay together by any means necessary. They'll even kill to get what they want.

What is something unique/quirky about you?

 

I count steps whenever I take the stairs. I can still tell you how many stairs are at my parents house from counting them so many times while I was growing up.

 

 

What are some of your pet peeves?

 

I can't standing having the radio volume at an uneven number. My husband purposely does it when he wants to annoy me.

 

 

 

Where were you born/grew up at?

 

I grew up in a small town in New Jersey. It's literally 1 square mile.

 

 

 

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

 

With my kids. I wouldn't leave the house. I would spend the entire day cuddled up with them.

 

 

 

Who is your hero and why?

 

I would have to say my parents. They have always been amazing and showed me what a loving relationship should be.

 

 

 

What kind of world ruler would you be?

 

If you ask my husband and kids, probably a dictator. In my defense though, I usually have to fix or clean up after everyone. It's easier if everything is done my way.

 

 

 

What are you passionate about these days?

 

Baking! I absolutely love it. I even make all of my family's birthday cakes, decorated with homemade buttercream and fondant.

 

 

 

What do you do to unwind and relax?

 

Lay in bed with a book. That's my "ME" time.

 

 

How to find time to write as a parent?

 

I tend to write when my kids are napping or after they've gone to bed for the night.

 

 

 

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

 

I'm a total introvert

 

 

 

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

 

I don't think that there was any defining moment. I've always liked to write, but I never really shared that with anyone.

Cade opened the door to his office and stepped aside so that Nova could enter. Nova pleadingly looked up at him. When he didn’t budge, she walked past him and stopped in the middle of the room. He closed the door and locked it behind him. Stepping up to her, he reached down and untied the skirt that all the servants were required to wear and let it drop to the floor. The standard underwear that each were given only covered the essentials and Cade couldn’t help but admire the curve of Nova’s hips and bottom and the line of her bare legs as the skirt fell. He took her hand and led her over to his desk. Leaving her standing there, he stepped around behind it and took the cat-o-nine-tails he had shown her before off of the wall.


Nova could feel her heart race with fear and a slight bit of anticipation. Where the hell did that come from? She hadn’t exactly expected that. As he came around the front of his desk again, he trailed the cat across her nearly bare rear end. Something clenched in Nova’s stomach and in her throat.


He nodded towards the desk. “Bend over.” Nova hesitated only long enough for Cade to cock his head to the side. “Nova, I won’t tell you again.” Cade stepped behind her and lifted her arms above her head as he helped ease her down across the smooth wood of his desk.


He ran his hand lightly over her before she felt a sharp sting across her backside. Nova bit at her lip to fight back the gasp and scream she felt boiling inside of her. Her mind was doing somersaults as it tried to pinpoint the exact sensation she was feeling. The next strike caught her just across the upper thighs and the smooth slope of her ass. Nova couldn’t avoid the gasp of breath that she took this time. Cade brought the leather straps down against her skin again, bringing bright red marks across her cheeks that could even be seen through her panties. Nova could be wrong, but she thought she heard a mild groan out of him as he ran his fingers lightly over the marks. As Cade brought those straps down upon her one final time, Nova’s brain fizzled out on her. She audibly let out a moan that she hadn’t meant to and she couldn’t deny the feeling between her legs that she was absolutely confused about. Cade smiled to himself as he slid a hand between her skin and the fabric that barely covered it. “Like that, did you? You’re not supposed to like your punishment, Nova. I might have to try harder next time.” He used his hand to push her underwear down slightly. His bare hand came down hard upon her already bare ass and then slid down between her legs, feeling the wetness she couldn’t deny. “I am definitely going to have to try harder. You enjoyed this way too much." He pulled her panties back up and picked up her skirt, laying it on the desk next to her. “Get dressed, Nova. I’ll take you back to your room.”


Cade took a couple of deep breaths as he hung the cat back on the wall, attempting to calm the desire inside himself. He hadn’t been prepared for Nova’s reaction, nor for his own. Once he had a sense of control, he walked over to the door and held it open for her. They walked to her room in silence. Once there, he opened the door for her. When she turned to close it, he placed his hand on top of hers. “Nova, don’t think that I don’t understand. I know exactly what you are going through. I’ve been in your position. I had to learn the hard way to control myself. Mason is right, you just have to learn to play the game.”

1. What book do you think everyone should read?

 

Everyone should read Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene. It’s an emotional rollercoaster, but it’s the best book I’ve ever read. I remember reading it when I was about eleven or twelve. I had just seen the movie with Bruce Davidson and Kristy McNichol. I immediately went to the bookstore and bought the book. I read the book in one sitting and spent the next day...well, I can’t tell you that or it’d give away the ending. Just read it! It’s powerful! It’s technically a Young Adult book, but anyone can read this book and be moved by it.

 

 

2. What inspired you to write this book?

 

Torture, plain and simple. I started to write the characters of Cade and Nova to torture my best friend, Kat Ries. It’s so much fun to write scenes to torture her. It developed into so much more than that because a storyline blossomed. The characters began to talk to me. Suddenly, there was this world developed.

 

 

3. What can we expect from you in the future?

 

There are two more “Obeying The Rules” books to come and the prequel to Spellcasters. Beyond that, I have so many ideas floating around in my head yet to come. Kat and I have a monster of a book to come yet that spawned an entire side project.

 

 

 

4. Do you try to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

 

I just write what the characters dictate. I honestly couldn’t do it any other way. I always hope that the readers will love it, but the characters tell me which direction the book is going to go. In fact, in Obeying The Rules, there is one character that I was surprised that it ended up the way that it did. When I first introduced the character, it wasn’t my intent.

 

 

5. What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

 

Well, it wasn’t exactly a literary pilgrimage, but there was a trip that solidified the idea of publishing my first book. My best friend, Kat Ries, and I had written Spellcasters just for fun to amuse ourselves. The characters were based on our favorite actors. We had planned a trip to a convention to meet one of those actors. During that trip, everything pointed to the fact that we needed to publish our book. There are pieces of jewelry that figure prominently in the book. We actually found them at a vendor booth at the convention. There were other things pointing directly to the book. We walked out of the convention shocked and determined that Spellcasters needed to see the light of day. A few months later, it was published.

As a child who moved frequently, Kitka made friends easily with the characters in books. She would read everything she could get her hands on: from Shakespeare to Anne Rice to Johanna Lindsey to Judy Blume. She always dreamed of joining their ranks as an author. Having written for decades, she has finally found the courage to start sharing her dark, often paranormal, romantic works with the rest of the world. Her wife puts up with obsessively talking about her books and her two children encourage her all the way.

“Again, I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I just need a break. I’ve been telling you, for the last several gigs, that I’m worn out. I don’t feel like I’m being heard. Something is off, and I can’t figure out what it is. I didn’t mean to hurt you or Jacob.” Starla rubbed her temples, and perched on the edge of the office chair. Her coffee threatened to refuse to stay in her stomach. “I decided I needed a vacation, just a week or two. I found a great place and a good deal and I didn’t know the note vanished. I was just over at The Hot Java.”

 

“You mean to tell me you weren’t even a block away? You put me through all of this and you weren’t even out of the state or in another country! Starla that is the most selfish, childish thing you have ever done. That’s not showing love, or kindness.  What the heck were you thinking? That’s not Christ-like, and you know better! What if something happened to you? We were so scared that you’d been murdered or worse. What if….” Janice’s list of dire issues droned on, but Starla couldn’t concentrate on them. The carpet that had started moving in slow circles seemed to be speeding up.

 

Starla tried to cut into Janice’s monologue, but all she managed was a moan before she fell out of the chair onto the floor. Something cold was on her head and everything sounded like a hive of bees and looked fuzzy. “What’s happening to me?” The words seemed thick and difficult to say. Starla wasn’t even sure they came out right. Suddenly, everything went black.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?


I'm an avid reader and I read in multiple genres. I can't pick just one. I love Chrisitan fiction, Sci-Fi and speculative fiction, some historical romance, mysteries and murder mysteries, fantasy and more.

 


Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?


That totally varies. It can be quite or it can have tv shows running or music. My life changes around a good bit so I go with the flow as much as I can.

 

 

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?


I have several going at one time. If I feel like one needs a break, I go work on another one.

 

 

Pen or type writer or computer?


My computer, but I may move to a voice to computer program to help speed things up. I do type quickly, but I think and talk faster than I can type.

 


If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?


This probably applies to many authors, but I'd tell myself the following:
You're going to get crushed by some people when you least expected it to happen. Some of them didn't realize it and they don't understand because they have judged you without perspective or asking you for insight. Shake it off as fast as you can. It doesn't define who you are, just keep pressing forward for the ones who do listen and care.

 


How long on average does it take you to write a book?


The longest was eight years, and the fastest one week. I think average would be six months from writing to final editing and publishing.

 


Do you believe in writer’s block?


I know that I don't have that exactly. I have so many ideas that it's harder to pick which ones need to be written next. If I feel "stuck" on how a story should progress then I tend to go work on another one for a little while. When I got back to the first one it flows rather easily. I attribute my "stuck" places to my story needing to gel a bit more in my mind.
