Character Interview with Mica Thomas
Laurie: I understand you had a pretty rough year. How are you handling all of the changes?
Mica: (Shrugs) Rough? Sure. You could say that. After my mom died, I thought things couldn’t get any worse, but then Scott came along...Well, that’s ancient history now. I’ll kick the crap out of him if he shows up again! (Laughs) Probably I should thank him though. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have met Sean and the guys. I wouldn’t change that for anything. They’re family.
Laurie: Declan seems pretty sweet. What about Killian? Do you ever want to kill him? He’s pretty harsh, isn’t he?
Mica: (Laughs again) Killian? Yeeaah. He’s something else, isn’t he? I can’t think of too many days when I don’t want to strangle him. (Leans forward and lowers her voice) But you know...there’s something about him...he’s powerful in ways Sean and Dec aren’t. I’m still a little afraid of him, but don’t tell him that. His head would explode.
Laurie: Speaking of powerful, what’s it like to have psychic powers all of the sudden? You seem to be handling them pretty well except for that time with Dani. Did your eye ever heal?
Mica: (Chews on her lip) Don’t remind me! I was such an idiot to try that with her. Dec erased her memory, thank God, but mine’s still here. I’ll never forget that night! My brain still hurts when I remember it, and yes, my eyeball is perfect again. Thanks to Raphael, I can heal myself now. (Grins) The other powers are wicked though! Remote viewing is awesome and I’m getting better at using it. I can’t teleport though. That bites. I wish I could do that.
Laurie: Soooo, Sean seems to have some interesting powers. Does he use them in bed?
Mica: (Blushes) Wow! That’s pretty personal! He’d kill me for saying anything, but let’s just say the heat of his saol feels pretty amazing--everywhere. Whew. Yeah, let’s stop with that. (Fans herself and looks at her watch)
Laurie: Time to go? Okay, one last question. Raphael. Who is he and what has he told you about your destiny?
Mica: Raphael is an archangel. He’s the best of all of them, really. Kind, gentle, brilliant, of course. He’s got a way about him that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. I just love him to death. He’s great. (Glances at her watch again) He also scares the hell out of me. There’s power in him that sits just under his skin. You can see it in his eyes. I’d never mess with him. You’d be toast. As far as my destiny goes, he’s pretty damn vague on it. I’m assuming it’s got something to do with Sean since I’ve got his powers now. Maybe we’re destined to save the world before bedtime? (Pauses and listens)
Laurie: Is Killian calling you?
Mica: No, Sean’s on his way. I can feel him. Thanks for the interview! Gotta run.
Sean appears behind Mica and puts both hands on her shoulders. His eyes are burning, but he nods once before they vanish.

Mica Thomas is Sean O'Cahan's worst nightmare. Part angel, all Primani, he's a ruthless protector with unusual talents. Jaded by the weakness of humans, he takes a hands-off approach to his charges. His job's to protect her. That's all. But Mica's got other ideas. He's strong, but she's stronger. Will his one moment of weakness destroy them both?
Mica doesn’t believe in quaint notions of fate and destiny. She’s a live-in-the-moment kind of girl until she’s attacked and left for dead. When Sean and his friends appear out of thin air to rescue her, Mica knows there’s more to them than they’re saying. Secrets and lies pile up but she can’t walk away from him.
As the clock ticks, Mica is drawn deeper into the Primani world until there’s no way out.
Laurie Olerich is the author of the new Primani series. Part urban fantasy, part romance, part paranormal...Three things she can’t live without! Laurie spent most of her life in the Northeastern United States and in Western Europe. She now lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her son and Dalmatian duo, Domino and Rambo. Desperate to escape the heat, she lives vicariously through Mica and her Primani by setting their adventures in the mountain coolness of New England and the rainy days of London. Before throwing caution to the wind and diving into a writing career, Laurie dedicated 20 years to her country by serving in the United States Air Force. Much of her time was spent around men with guns and cool toys...this explains her obsession with both.
