BOOK TRAILER:



About the Book:
 
Maggie Brock has everything under control. Even her divorce, though painful at the time, registers only as a minor blip in her carefully constructed universe. Her life in Prairie Oaks has once again returned to a smooth, predictable pace…until an angel shows up in her bedroom.

The angel is just as bewildered as Maggie about why he’s been sent to her, but their unsuccessful efforts to gain understanding of the mystery fade to the background as their relationship grows. Soon, Maggie’s biggest problem becomes the angel himself, as her feelings for him develop into something less than saintly.

While Maggie struggles to keep her desires pure, a nefarious being lurks in the shadows of Prairie Oaks, watching and waiting for the opportunity to fulfill his ambiguous purpose. Preying on her conflicted emotions, the demon manipulates her at every opportunity, but the one to deliver Maggie directly into his hands is the last person she’d expect.


Character Interview with Evan from Divine Temptation
Hi, this is Nicki, the author of Divine Temptation. I’m about to interview one of my characters from the book, and I’ve never talked to one of them off the pages before, so I’m a little nervous. Probably best to get to it before I change my mind, eh? Okay, bring on the angel.

Evan (the angel): You sure you’re ready?
Me: No.
Evan: We don’t have to do this.
Me: Um, yeah, we sorta do. You see these people here?
Evan: I’m sure they’d understand.
Me: Don’t.
Evan: Don’t what?
Me: Don’t get all “I’m gonna show up and be soothing and wonderful and—”…just don’t.
Evan: Why not?
Me: Because this isn’t about me. It’s about you. I am interviewing you.

*A protracted silence*

Evan: Are you going to ask me a question, then?
Me: Yes. How’ve you been since the final round of edits?
Evan: (smiles) I’ve been well. How’ve yo— I’ve been well.
Me: Good. And what have you been doing?
Evan: You know I can’t tell you. And even if I could, you wouldn’t und—
Me: Yeah, yeah, I wouldn’t understand. But you can’t blame a girl for trying, right? So…is this doomed to be the most boring interview ever—me asking you questions and you not answering them?
Evan: Come on, you know me better than anyone else on this Earth. Ask me something you know I can answer.
Me: (smirks) Okay, at least tell me this: now that you’re done “posing” for my story, have you gone back to Abercrombie modeling? (holds up bag with image of beautiful boy on it)
Evan: (laughs) That might be what gave you the first inspiration for me, but we both know I ended up totally different than the man pictured there.
Me: (looks at the bag and sighs) That is no mere man. And I wouldn’t say you ended up totally different.
Evan: (tilts head and raises eyebrow in warning) I would never pose completely shirtless, arms thrown back behind my head while I leer seductively at masses of anonymous retail shoppers.
Me: He’s not leering seductively! He’s…observing…knowingly. Besides, you’re not wearing a shirt on the book cover.
Evan: I still don’t understand why you didn’t ask to have the lower portion blurred out.
Me: It’s just a shoulder; get over it. And before you go trying to give everyone the impression that you’re oh-so-innocent, do I need to remind you of chapter 20? And let’s not forget what you did in chapters 11 and 16. Got a little frisky in 8 and 9 too, if you ask me. Then there was the whole morning after the exorci—
Evan: Point made, and I think you better stop before you give away any spoilers.
Me: Right. Thanks. So, would you like me to give you a small part in the new story I’ve started writing?
Evan: Ehm, no thanks. Not really my style.
Me: You’ve seen it?
Evan: Enough to know there’s not much room for an angel.
Me: Well, the seeds of the idea actually came from a small scene in Divine Temptation. The one with Maggie on Thanksgiving night, when she returned home alone…
Evan: (nods slightly and shifts his eyes toward the floor)
Me: Do you not approve of the new storyline?
Evan: It’s not for me to approve or disapprove, and regardless of what I think of it, I’m glad you’re having fun writing it.
Me: (smiles) You’re a swell guy. Thanks for doing this interview. I think we can end now so that you can be off to…where is it you said you were going?
Evan: I didn’t. But nice try. (winks)
About the Author



Writing wasn't something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves her creative writing time in with the other activities of her busy life with her family in the Chicago suburbs.

Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. Her published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and short stories “Sway” (available as a single), “I Don’t Do Valentine’s Day” (part of A Valentine Anthology), and “Impressionism 101” (included in the debut issue of Insatiable: The Magazine of Paranormal Desire).
