Happy Release Day to Nika Rhone! Learn some fun facts about Nika in this short Q&A. Leave a question on the blog for a chance to win Can’t Help Loving You!
1. What genre(s) do you write?
So far, it’s all been contemporary, but I’ve got ideas swirling in the back of my brain for both historical and paranormal that I won’t be able to ignore much longer.
2. Coffee or tea lover?
Tea. Lots and LOTS of tea.
4. Do you have pets?
We have one old guy named Rebel, who unfortunately has always lived up to his name. LOL. He’s a rescue dog we think is a hound/retriever mix, who knows exactly how to work the whole cute-dog look for maximum biscuit effect, especially when I’m trying to read.
5. When I wake up every morning I… Make a cup of tea and sit down at my computer to write. I’m a creature of habit, so I find I can’t write at any other time of the day. Unless, of course, it’s the middle of the night and a character wakes me up because they just won’t shut up. Then I have no choice. *g*
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
I still have the small stone scarab and metal ankh (there’s that Egyptian thing again) I got from a museum gift shop as a kid. I can’t keep from misplacing my car keys every other day, but those two things I’ve managed to hang onto for over 40 years.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
Reading is my hobby, although my husband would say it’s my vice. As for skills, I wish. I always wanted to learn how to knit or quilt, but I just don’t have the knack (or maybe the patience?) for either.
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
I’d love for them to fall in love with the characters as much as I have, to feel their highs and lows with them. I love when a book can make me laugh or cry or get that angsty pang in the middle of my chest. If my readers do any of those things, then I’ve done my job right.
9. What inspired you to write Can’t Help Loving You?
This is the third book in the Boulder Bodyguards series, and the hardest one to write because Lillian is such a different character from her best friends in the first 2 books. She’s bold, brash, impulsive, and has a joie de vivre that was almost exhausting to keep up with once the words started coming, but now that the book is done, I kind of miss her.

Police officer Rafael Delgado struggles to put both his shattered leg and life back together.

But after acts of vandalism finds him acting as her unofficial bodyguard, he’s suddenly presented with the very temptation he’s tried so hard to avoid.
When their simmering attraction boils over into steamy romance, Rafe and Lillian find that despite all the reasons they shouldn’t be together, only one thing can keep them apart – the person who won’t stop until all of Lillian’s dreams go up in smoke.
