Love Entwined - Danita Minnis - Character Interview with Roman

Hi Danita and Roman. Thank you for dropping in on us today.

Hi Diane! Thanks so much for having me and Roman on today. It’s so nice to have Roman all to myself – well, almost. It’s just so hard prying him away from Amelie, that gorgeous witch and love of his life.

Can I ask Roman a few questions?

Roman: Diane, I’m all yours

Roman, would you like to tell me what you do for a living, because you sound very rich.

I am. But more than that, I am the driving force behind Cardiff Jewels. My jewellery sells on its name alone. I have no competition.

What was your first impression of Amelie?

Roman leans back in his chair with a wicked grin: Ah, I thought you would never ask. The first time I saw Amelie she was wearing a sexy as hell navy blue suit. The white silk blouse that covered her beautiful breasts was not at all angelic. I thought she would look rather nice lying naked in my bed. She does, by the way.

Describe Amelie. Look, feel, smell.

Right now, I would say she’s dinner. But to answer your question; when we’re out and about, people tell Amelie she resembles the Scottish actress Isla Fisher. I can see that, but I also see Amelie’s delicious curves. I tell you they are hot as Hades and make for one scorching ride. She smells like fine chocolate - and you know what they say about fine chocolate: you can’t eat just one. 

Do you feel the need to protect her – or ravish her?

Roman: Can I have some water? It’s getting hot in here. (Danita hands Roman a glass and he takes a long gulp of water.)

At Danita’s concerned look, Roman assures her: I’ll be fine. Um, how long is this going to take? Danita: Not much longer.  Get back to the ravishing.

Roman: You know me too well. It’s not that I don’t want to protect Amelie - that goes without saying. She’s in Yorkshire with me on a jewellery designing assignment and couldn’t be safer. But Amelie was made for love and – where is she, by the way?

Danita: Just a few more questions, Roman.

You sound like you enjoy having fun. What are your favourite sporting activities?

Roman gives Danita a pained look. Danita grins: Just go with it.

Roman: In a word – Amelie. But we do start the evening with a few laps in the pool. I competed at university.

How would Amelie describe you?

She would tell you I’m an arrogant CEO, a wicked lover, and her Roman Warrior. All true.

What is your biggest flaw?

Like Amelie, I don’t remember our past life and so I can’t remember there are demons stalking us through time. The il Dragone demons are our eternal enemies, they want their high priestess back but I won’t give up Amelie.

How old are you? And what are you doing tonight … no, scratch that, it’s okay, I was getting carried away. Just the first part of the question, then.

Ah, Diane, before Amelie I would certainly have taken you up on that offer! I’m thirty-four, 6’ 4” with blue eyes you could swim in, I don’t have one secret love child to speak of, I’m filthy rich as noted earlier and I’ll even hire someone to do your windows. Sorry, I can’t help flirting – I’ve been at it for too long.

What do you consider your best feature?

Roman winks at Danita, who rolls her eyes.

Roman: Well, for that I must refer to Amelie at a recent swim session, and I quote: “He was superbly endowed. God-like, more than a man should be.”

Roman grins. I don’t make this stuff up.

What’s your favourite drink – alcoholic or not?

I’m not much of a drinker, although I like a good Scotch when I’m trying to loosen Amelie up for the night. Not too much, though, or she’ll fall asleep on me.

Thank you Roman. Have a cup of coffee and relax. I’ll just stroke your knee while Danita tells us all about her new book, Love Entwined.

Love Entwined

Amelie’s goal is the top of the jewellery designing world. Her orderly life comes undone when jewellery tycoon Roman steals her away on assignment to a remote English estate. He wants Amelie all to himself but St. Clair Manor’s ghost has waited for her much longer than he has.

An unseen gunman takes a shot at Roman and he blames a business rival. But Amelie and Roman are to blame, for falling in love 200 years before in a time neither of them remember.

From the heartbreak of pre-Revolutionary France to modern day corporate wars, Amelie and Roman uncover a history of blood jewels, lust and demons.

When Amelie discovers her inner witch she learns the real reason she was summoned to St. Clair Manor. Il Dragone will kill to get her back. Amelie will kill if they do.

“Amelie Laurent, may I introduce you to Roman Cardiff.” Harold gestured toward the Burberry divan in the corner.
She closed her mouth and turned, hand extended. The apology died on her lips.
Dieu. He was a Greek god in a dark tailored suit. Very tall. Different in reality. Cooler than she expected. There was arrogance in his square jaw. His aquiline nose and thick, black brows made him look like a predator.
His expression would have seemed harsh except for the warmth of the sky blue gaze traveling slowly up her body. The eyes gave his features a seraphim quality. They leisurely toured the peachy-pink lacquered toenails peeking through the front of her navy pumps, and then moved up the curve of her hips. She felt those eyes like a puff of warm breath when they grazed the swell of her breasts above the white silk blouse.
She was an innocent doe being circled by a panther that was higher up on the food chain and more resourceful.
Clearly, he wanted to take a bite out of her. His imperial stance said it was his due. His nostrils flared as he inhaled her scent.
Amelie looked down at the large hand holding hers. Warm, like a glove.
Finally, his gaze met hers.
She did not move, but something sinful shivered inside her. It was the part of her who knew this man. But these feelings weren’t hers—they belonged to that other woman. The one who waited for him at night in her bedroom.
He is real. But he could not be her dream lover.
With an unholy smile, Mr. Cardiff lifted her hand. Full lips moved over her skin in a warm caress, and she was filled with craving.
She jolted out of her reverie, tried to pull away, but he held her there. Her hand relaxed in his.
Stop this, you don’t know him!
