Dariel's Book Talk Wednesday: Character Interview with Danita Minnis's Falcon

Falcon On Crimes of Passion

I’m a level-headed guy, always knew right from wrong. I’ve done both when necessary since the age of seventeen. You would think that kind of life would land a kid in trouble. Not me. Killing is one thing I do well. Getting in and getting out? I do that even better. 

I didn’t know trouble until a certain long-legged Brit came into my life and I became anything but the calm, systematic Falcon, the highest-paid assassin in seven countries. That’s when killing became a crime of passion. In my business that’s a death sentence. I need a cool head for what I do or I won’t be doing it much longer.

Unfortunately, il Dragone knows my weakness: Angel. They know her better than I do. About two hundred years better. They know me too and I find myself at a disadvantage.

They want Angel and will never stop coming for her. But how do you kill something that won’t stay dead, something that remembers from lifetime to lifetime? That’s my frustration and my fear for Angel.

Born to a witch who has lost her powers and a father whose ancestors have been hunting il Dragone for centuries, Angel had no idea what kind of enemies were waiting for her when she entered this world. But she’s got me now, and I won’t let them have her. Not this time. 

That’s why I live to exterminate il Dragone. I will find a way to make them stay dead. Even if it kills me.

Falcon’s Angel – blurb

Sleeping with the Enemy? Sometimes Love is the Best Revenge

A thief and an assassin. Lust at first sight.
Sounds ideal until all the lies between Falcon and Angel bring them dangerously close to the end of their lives.

Angelina wants to go unrecognized when she leaves her family’s Yorkshire estate to play in a symphony in Italy. When she starts running she has no idea just how much she is running from: a stolen Stradivarius, a birthright of mysterious powers and a past that got her killed over two hundred years ago. 

Falcon wants the Stradivarius in her possession, and goes undercover to track down a thief. But he is not the only killer in search of the violin.

il Dragone, a devil-worshiping cult, wants revenge for a past only they can remember.

Falcon’s Angel is a paranormal romance of love that ended in tragedy in eighteenth century France. That love is tested in a fight of good versus evil some two hundred years later. This time around Falcon and Angel have an opportunity to put a stop to the cycle of murder and mayhem, if only they can remember.

Danita Minnis Bio
If you asked Danita Minnis which is easier, writing songs or writing novels, she would say it was the former. Melodies and rhymes are second nature. What her characters want is another thing entirely. With her debut novel, Falcon’s Angel, she learned to listen to her spunky heroine and sinfully confident hero. They’re funny and in danger, and that’s just the way they want it. Lesson learned: don’t try to save them.
When she’s not writing, Danita exercises her lungs at her son’s soccer matches and their favorite theme park, because everyone knows it’s easier on the stomach to scream your way down a roller coaster.
