Taviano is the youngest brother and in Shadow Flight we really see how he’s grown as a man. All of the Ferraros are alphas, even Emme. Just because Taviano looked up to big brother Stefano didn’t mean he wasn’t a badass in his own right. He took missions. He delivered justice. He also had a unique love interest in that, Nicoletta had been rescued by the Ferraros and now lived in their sphere.
I really enjoy writing this series. Most people know that I have a large family and that family means the world to me. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that most of my books have that kind of theme running through them. The Shadow Rider series is about family and with Taviano and Nicoletta’s story you get several layers of it. From the love of siblings, to what makes up family we learn how family can save us in so many ways.
Taviano loves his family, but something from his past kept his apart. Because his secret could, in his opinion, harm the family, he couldn’t share it. But, something in Nicoletta gave him solace and he’d go to her to keep his demons at bay even though it wasn’t the right time for a romantic relationship.
Taviano is a bit of a hothead and the most like Stefano. He’s always been his own man. He’s not one to ask for permission. When things go sideways and he needs to protect Nicoletta, he makes the decision he feels will keep her safe, even though the cost to him is dear. Taviano is willing to pay the price for his decisions, his mistakes and desires.
