Interview with Drago De Luca from Seducing the Tycoon
Mr. De Luca, thank you for joining us.
Drago, please. And it is my pleasure.
Please describe your ideal woman.
*Hand to chest with a low groan* My favorite subject by far. And the easiest to answer. My ideal woman is one who wears confidence like a second skin. I love when a woman challenges me, pushes me, but is also comfortable having me close. If you can intrigue me with your mind, entertain me with your humor, and ease me with your care, I’ll be helpless to resist you. And make no mistake, I expect to have to work hard to meet your own expectations. And believe me, I’m a very hard worker. *brow wiggle* Tall, short, curvy, athletic…the female body is a work of art. One I love to explore over and over and over again.
What is your idea of the ideal dream date?
This is a tricky question because my ideal dream date is only ideal when it’s what we both want. I live in a small renaissance town in Italy called Ferrara, and exploring my city is one of my true passions, but nothing beats a jaunt into Rome on my private jet. There is something quite decadent about making love while flying thousands of feet over the most beautiful country in the world. The trick is, how do we spend our time once in Rome? Should we bar hop for a city wide Prosecco tasting? Or crawl through the catacombs by moonlight? Or…should we skip Rome and read together by the fireplace? I love a good Scotch and a great book.
What superhero would you be, and why?
Hmmmmm…what super hero would I be? The Marvel super hero Dragon Man might suit because I’m known in the Italian business world as The Dragon. I’m a corporate carnivore who takes no prisoners, though I’ve learned to look at the heart of the matter before consuming those I set my sights on. Sometimes a business needs direction not devoured. But the thing that drives me mad is a businessman who doesn’t protect and grow his business. That’s when I swoop in. Besides, Dragon man can fly and you already know how I feel about sex in flight, and he’s so hot he could melt himself. *wink* So climb aboard, ladies.
If you had to give yourself a nickname, what would it be?
The nickname I already have is The Dragon. Part of it originated from my first name Drago, part of it from my prowess in business. But let me remind you, there’s business in the streets and business between the sheets—and I have an extremely strong work ethic in both.
You only have six months to live…what do you do?
*shakes head* Oh wow. That is a heartbreaking question. Honestly, if I only had six months left to live, I’d have to make sure my Nonna was set up to be taken care of. She’s the one woman in my life who I know truly loved me, and I already let her down once before. That is something I’ll never do again. So I’d need to spend my time with her, make sure she knew how thankful I was to have her, and make sure she had no worries once I was gone.
Drago, we look forward to seeing the romance play out between you and Chase Huntington in Seducing the Tycoon. Anything in particular we should watch out for?
If I’ve learned anything, it’s that you’ll find your HEA in the place and person you least expect it. So keep your eyes and heart open.
Thank you for joining us today!
Grazie. Ciao…I’ll see you in Ferrara.

The Merediths live in the D.C. area with their two large fur babies…until the next adventure calls.
He’ll play dirty to protect his assets—but falling for the competition was never the plan.
International tycoon Drago De Luca has the world at his feet and he knows it. But back home in Italy, his beloved grandmother’s family inn is on the verge of closing down for good, thanks to hotshot American heiress, Chase Huntington, and her new hotel. Drago has to protect Nonna’s inn, even if it means getting close enough to Chase to convince her she needs to leave. But the more time he spends with Chase, the more he’s drawn to her passion, her love of his culture, and the way she looks in those Louis Vuitton heels.
Chase Huntington would give anything to enjoy her time with charming, sexy-as-hell Drago in the style capital of the world, but she has to make sure the new Huntington hotel opens successfully. How else can she prove she’s not just fashionista with a fortune—she’s an heiress savvy enough to take over the family’s biggest hotel back in California? But somewhere between boutiques and business plans, she falls head over Louboutins for Drago. But when Drago’s true motive for spending so much time with her comes to light, it could destroy everything Chase built and everything she thought she found in Italy.
