In “Vengeful Vows”, Daffodil Simmons knows how the world works. She’s the spider, all the world is a fly. She has spent her life spinning webs, using people for personal gain. And now, she’s about to spin her biggest one yet – for vengeance. She’ll do whatever it takes to get revenge on the two men who abandoned her: her father, and her former lover. When she blackmails her half-sister Leah Westwood’s ex-lover to do her bidding, she tightens her fist around his will and brings him into submission to her plans.
Vincent Miller hates that Daffodil has a noose around his neck, forcing him to do whatever she wants. But he’ll do anything to steal Leah back from Jacob Westwood, the man who destroyed his life, even if it means making a deal with a blue-eyed spider. Yet as Daffodil spins her web, he finds himself entrapped by a silk of a very different kind and intrigued by a woman who only sees him as expendable prey
Everything is going according to plan until another spider, a ghost from Daffodil’s past, begins to interfere with their web. It’s a battle of wits against a powerful foe. When it comes time to make the ultimate choice, can Daffodil lay aside everything she’s ever known… for something even greater? Can Vincent set aside his need for revenge to go after what’s in front of him?

Interview with Parker J. Cole, the author of “Vengeful Vows”
When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
I always knew I’d be a writer. I didn’t start writing novels till I was in my teens. From twelve years old, I wrote short stories and poem. I miss that aspect of my writing ability because it hard for me to write a short story when that’s all I used to do. I guess I’ll have to re-teach myself again.
Why is the theme of this project important?
I was going to work one morning, making sure to be there on time. I noticed a van had stopped right in the middle of the road. Of course, I wondered why the van stopped in the middle of the street. Then I noticed a school of Canadian geese were walking across the street. Most of them young and cute as can be. It was such a heart-warming thing to see and although it wasn’t my plan to stop for geese, I was glad I did. It made me relax and smile.
The theme is important because we think we control our lives with our routines and habits. However, any control we have is an illusion. You can have a plan and something comes along and your plans change. In the same way a school of geese can halt your journey, the tiniest element can change anything.
What did you learn about yourself while writing this book?
I learned to write to keep my sanity. I had a lot going on during the writing of this book. It caused me to lose myself in my world. For the first time, storytelling wasn’t an escape. It became therapy.
How do you find time to write?
I make time, plain and simple.
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
Darlene Mindrup. I love her writing and would be honored!
