The Winemaker's Dinner

Without further ado, please allow me to introduce to you my friend, first time novelist, fellow coauthor of The Winemaker's Dinner, and soon to be obsession of women worldwide, Dr. Ivan Rusilko. Before we get to the good stuff like the sexy pictures of the Good Doctor, I'd like to take a minute to introduce you to the novel we've spent the past 4 months tirelessly laboring over. It all started 5 months ago when a follower on Twitter posted a link to her website which included a brief bio and many, many pictures of Ivan. The first thought that crossed my mind was that he would make the perfect hero in a romance novel. I friended him on Facebook, but it took me almost a month to gather up the courage to actually approach him about the subject. Being the good sport that he is, Ivan agreed to allow me to use him as a character in the book. Somewhere along the lines it transitioned from him loaning his name to the book to him becoming actively involved in the writing process. Shortly thereafter, we realized that we made one hell of a writing team. The ideas started flowing, the characters began to grow, and in turn, we both made the decision to dedicate ourselves to making this one of most epic love stories ever written. Once we found our groove, the book started writing itself.

The Winemaker's Dinner is loosely based on the past romantic triumphs and tragedies of Ivan's personal life. Not only did he loan him name to this book, but he also loaned his memories and experiences to the plot line, making it a one of kind story. The story itself follows the romance between Dr. Ivan Rusilko and the object of his affection, Jaden Thorne. Set in Miami Beach, Jaden and Ivan embark on a romantic journey that will have you laughing, crying, and sitting on the edge of your seat begging for more.

Ivan's full bio will be posted shortly, but in the meantime, here are a few tidbits to drool over. Ivan Rusilko is a former two time Mr. USA 2008/2010, former Mr World contestant, competitive bodybuilder, South Beach physician who is soon to be debuting a world class medical spa, wine enthusiast, wine maker, photographer, nutritionist, personal trainer, writer, and all round sexy awesome guy. Seriously, is there anything this man doesn't do? The answer is NO!

And now for the good stuff. Ladies, are you ready???
