Fallen Raven, Book One

Seventeen-year-old Aurora Vitali didn’t have the best life in Las Vegas, but it was a place to call home. When her father scores a win after so many fails, he abruptly moves the whole family to the Upper East Side in New York City. Aurora is quickly seduced by the glitz and glamour of her new world, where designer clothes, limos, and beach parties are the norm.

Her first day at their elite school, she meets Enzo Alfera, one of the royals. He’s rich, gorgeous, and so dangerous. The magnetic pull she feels when he’s near is absolutely irresistible. She’s warned to stay away, and that’s exactly what she plans to do. Except every time their paths cross, neither one of them can deny their powerful attraction.

Going against their parents’ wishes, they give into their burning desires. He’s dark and cunning. She’s sweet and innocent. Together, they are explosive.

But their parents have plans of their own. The choices they make to get ahead threaten to pull Aurora and Enzo apart. Now the star-crossed lovers have to decide if their forbidden love is worth going against everything and everyone.

Enzo knows what he wants. And he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep Aurora for himself. If he fails, it could destroy them both.

Fallen Raven, Book Two

Interview with Diana A. Hicks

How many books have you written and which is your favorite?

Between my two pen names, I’ve written 25 books. I don’t have a favorite, but I do think about Fallen Raven Duet a lot. That book broke me. 😩

If you’re planning a sequel, can you share a tiny bit about your plans for it?

The Fallen Raven Duet is part of the Crime Society World. There are 3 other duets in that series.

Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?

The Fallen Raven Duet is a boxed set. This is a complete story. The story is best enjoyed if you read book 1 and book 2 in order.

How did you come up with the title for your book?

There are five original families in the Crime Society World. Each family has a crest with an animal that represents the family. The Alfera family’s crest has a Raven on it. Since the story depicts the fall of the Alferas…

How long did it take you to write this book?

A year. Like I said, this duet broke me.

What does the title mean?

It refers to the fall of the Alfera family and Enzo more specifically.

What did you learn when writing the book?

Love always finds a way.

What surprised you the most?

I knew the book would be dark from the beginning. But I I was surprised by some of the twists and turns it took. It got dark. Did I mention this duet broke me? LOL

Have you ever killed off a character your readers loved?

Yes. I still think about that and wonder if I can pull off one of those plot twists where the character just fakeds his own death. LOL

What do you do to get inside your character’s heads?

I listen to music and think about their backstory, friends and families…and how much they need their love interest to survive.
