Tobi Doyleabout this book: This book is set, again, in the San Francisco Bay Area. It's where I grew up and I visit my family there often. I liked the idea of writing a book about a "good" bad guy, and Viktor is definitely a guy with good intentions but he is, in fact, the new Mafia boss in town. Lucky's different too, although she's not in a gang or doing anything illegal, she's been surrounded by "good" bad guys her whole life. She can look past the job to see the man - and the man is tall, dark, and handsome. She's not intimidated by his position or power. My favorite scene is the one where she tattoos him, marking him as hers before they even really consciously choose to be together. Of the many things on my "fantasy" bucket list, I suppose a celtic tattoo would be one. I'll never do it because a) I'm too old and the skin is already saggy, b) my husband would freak out, c) hepatitis… no es bueno. So, I'll enjoy art on others and remind myself that the shamrock today would look like a whale tomorrow…
I wanted to write a dark hero. I was inspired after watching Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises. I could pretty much watch Viggo Mortensen do anything and enjoy it. The man does a fine alpha male, and I noticed a lot of his characters are dark heroes. Viktor is dark and brooding, in my mind, looks much like Viggo.
Lucky and Viktor make a quick "guest appearance" in Rebecca Barray's and my book Imperfect coming out this winter though Borough's Publishing.
