Release Day! A Secret Rose

A Secret Rose is my first novella in the Thunder City Series. Like Blood Surfer, it’s a romance. This time, however, I’m telling the story of Scott’s oldest brother, Nik. Nik reunites with Daniella Rose after ten years, but Dani has a secret:

Nikolaos Blackwood swore he would bring to justice the drug dealer known as Dodger. As Ghost, one of Thunder City’s alternative human defenders, it was Nik’s responsibility to keep his high school classmates safe. That included notorious bad girl Daniella Rose. Ten years later, he needs to locate Daniella to deliver an urgent request from her estranged family.

Dr. Daniella Rose finally believes she can lead a normal, happy life and focus on her relationship with Nik Blackwood — the one man she’s always wanted but could never have. Now that she’s back in Thunder City, she’ll do anything to keep him —  except reveal her hidden Alt ability to shapeshift into Dodger, a secret identity she killed before graduation.

When a drug lord from Dani’s past threatens Nik’s life, Dani knows she’ll have to resurrect Dodger to rescue her man, even if exposing her secret could cost her Nik’s love —  and her life.

Devil’s in the Details

3d render book whiteThis is a quasi- A Secret Rose post/Top Five post. A few smidgy things that I had to decide on while I was writing. A Secret Rose.

What sort of bouquet would Nik bring Dani on their first date? Roses would be too heavy. Nothing white, because marriage is the last thing from his mind, and nothing red because he doesn’t know he’s in love yet. Dani looks delicate. Of course, looks are deceiving, but I figured pastel colors would be the way for Nik to work his way into Dani’s heart. What sort of pastel flowers do you think are in the bouquet?

What sort of wardrobe does both Dani & Nik wear? I mention that Dani favors pencil skirts. They can be both sexy and work appropriate depending on what sort of top is worn with it. Nik favors three-piece suits. He doesn’t even realize it until Dani points it out to him.

What sort of cars do Dani & Nik drive. Well, Nik does drive, or so he claims, but not often. I never did figure out what sort of car he owned. Maybe I’ll know by the time Blood Hunter debuts. Dani drives a compact coupe. I tend to shy away from naming brands in my books, so I’ll let you decide on the brand. What sort of compact coupe would a sexy siren like Dani drive?

Dani orders a Reuben sandwich, which isn’t exactly diet friendly. Where does she put all of those calories? Does it have something to do with her superpower? I’ll let you figure that one out.

Dani favors action movies, but I don’t specify which ones. I figure she’s watching superhero movies during her movie marathon – I know, how meta is that? My vote – Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Man of Steel. Which superhero movies do you think she’s watching?
