Character Interview: Jax De Luca
From The Vigilante’s Lover by Annie Winters and Tony West
Q: So what do you do for a living, Jax?
A: If I told you, I have to kill you. (Laughs.) No, really.
Q: Is there anything you can tell me about your job?
A: That it comes with unlimited access to information about you. (Leans forward.) So tell me about this boy you’re seeing on the side.
Q: (Coughs nervously.) Forget the job. How did you meet Mia?
A: I tied her up and commenced interrogating her about her involvement in the disappearance of my comrade.
Q: And…how did she take that exactly?
A: Like a good Vigilante should. With trickery, training, and false information.
Q: So you were impressed by her?
A: Enough that I thought she was in the program. I had no idea she was a civilian.
Q: But you eventually figured that out.
Q: What was the clue?
A: I’d tell you but—
Q: You’d have to kill me. I get it. All right. Safer topic. What is your favorite way to kill people?
A: This is a safer topic?
Q: Sometimes it’s good to know how you’re going to die.
A: (Laughs.) I don’t kill anyone I don’t have to.
Q: You know, maybe we do need a new topic. Where did you get that rockin’ suit?
A: I have a designer in Mexico, Armond Santiago. His work is unparalleled.
Q: Does he do women’s designs as well?
A: Yes, we created an entire wardrobe for Mia. I was particular about the lingerie.
Q: I bet. Must be nice, having your own personal stylist.
A: You should consider one yourself.
Q: (Looks down at fraying sweater.) Only if I had access to unlimited funds.
A: Right. I forget. Do you have any more questions? Six alarms have sounded since we’ve been sitting here.
Q: Really? (Looks around.) Are we in danger?
A: Only if you detain me any longer with your questions.
Q: Yes, well. Okay. Thank you for your — Jax? (Stands up, flummoxed.) Where did he go?

"If Bourne dressed like Bond and acted like Grey, you'd have Jax De Luca." - An addictive new romantic suspense series from the desk of USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy/JJ Knight
Mia trembles as she reads the letter that arrives from Ridley Prison.
Seduction. Bondage ropes. Descriptions of things Mia has never experienced or known.
The man’s words are desperately passionate. He longs for a woman who must have given him a fake address. Mia’s address.
She plans to send the letter back. He’s a convicted felon.
But his words gnaw at her. She’s never done anything dangerous. And no man has ever talked to her like this.
So Mia writes him, pretending to be the woman he desires.
It's her one dark thrill in her dull, solitary small-town life.
The man is in prison for another fifteen years.
It's harmless. She is safe enough.
Until he escapes.
