Meet Madison Lockwood from Seduction in Seville #RomanticSuspense @olivianightread #RLFblog

Meet Madison Lockwood from Seduction in Seville by Olivia Night.

Author Bio

Olivia Night, a fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI  series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

About the Book

Title Seduction in Seville, The Men of FTI Book Two
Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
In a hospital in Seville, Spain, Patrick Kane lies in a coma. Ambushed and shot while protecting a friend, he fights to survive.
She never thought she would see him again. Patrick, the man who’d brought her back.
Eight years ago, Patrick Kane, a joint partner in Fairlane Trade International, descended into a basement of horrors. That horrible day he rescued many women, but one he would always remember. Her beautiful doe eyes filled his dreams and haunted his nightmares.
Madison Lockwood, a nurse, has struggled to put her past behind her, trying to forget the time she spent in captivity. But she recognizes the man who rescued her and brought her out of that terrifying reality. She owes him her life. Patrick is gravely injured, and Madison vows to see him through.
When Patrick opens his eyes, he instantly knows that he made a mistake leaving Madison after freeing her from the clutches of a human trafficking ring. She is meant to be his. As Patrick tries to win over a wary Madison, the past they both thought was gone for good comes back with a vengeance. One by one, the survivors of the horrific ordeal are being murdered. Patrick knows that Madison will be next if he doesn’t protect her.
Together they must fight for their survival. Seduction In Seville, book two in the Men of FTI series, is a tale of redemption, murder, new beginnings, and love that takes the reader on a wild, exotic ride.

Introducing Madison Lockwood

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Madison Lockwood 
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Madison, Georgia
Profession: Nurse
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Caucasian 
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars. 
Short, curvy, curly brown hair, big doe-like brown eyes, 5’1 110 lbs. 
Who is the significant other in your life? Patrick Kane, the man who saved me years ago. 
Please tell us a little about yourself. I grew up pretty sheltered. I was adopted and my parents were a bit over protected. In college I convinced them to let me join the study abroad program to Seville, Spain. None of us knew how that decision would change our lives forever. 
How do you dress?
I tend to like the classic style, meaning 50’s and 60’s. I like high waisted skirts and ballet flats with skinny jeans. It makes me feel super feminine. 
How do others perceive you based upon looks, and is this assumption accurate?
That I am delicate or fragile. Perhaps at one time it was an accurate assumption. It isn’t anymore. 
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
The exact person who did show up recently, Dardan Kotta. The man who abducted me and kept me prisoner in a large human trafficking ring. 
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For a very long time I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to allow myself to trust or be vulnerable. I still struggle with this at times, but Patrick helps me through.
What past event causes you the most fear?
The months I spent in the basement. 
How emotionally expressive are you to others?
Not very, at least not anymore. With Patrick I am learning to be emotionally expressive again. But right now he is pretty much the only person I feel comfortable being emotional with.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
It is possible to move beyond the things you think will hinder or define you forever.
