April Cover Extravaganza: Divine Temptation

Divine Temptation


That night, Maggie’s consciousness clung to the wispy vapors of a dream even as her eyes opened under her satin sleep mask. She sensed his presence and pushed herself to sitting. Fumbling to pull the mask down, she looked immediately to where he stood in the corner of her bedroom, just as he had the night before. This time she noted that he didn’t glow; no halo or anything else illuminated his form. Yet somehow, while her dresser and armoire stood in shadow, she could inexplicably make out his every detail.
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. "The comment I get most often from readers of Three Daves is how well they relate to the characters, how genuine they seem. And the greatest thing is that it doesn't seem to matter whether they went to college back in the 80s or are there now---they say the experience is genuine. I love hearing that."
