The Characters Who Travel the Romantic Road - #6 Riana Rolf and #7 Inga Graff



Allow me to introduce  Riana Rolf and   
Inga Graff

Opera Singer, Riana Rolf


Riana Rolf of Blair McDowell's Romantic Road
Renee Fleming as Riana
Born in 1970, Riana Rolf met Igor in in Vienna in 1997, when she was twenty-seven years old, singing Strauss waltzes for tourists. One night, Igor happened to be in the audience. He waited for her at the stage door and persuaded her to have a coffee with him. Two weeks later they were lovers. He helped her to achieve the career she has today as a foremost diva at the Vienna opera. They drift apart, but remained friends.


Riana is now 45, happily married and singing major roles in the Vienna Opera. Some of her many recordings are in Igor’s collection in the N.Y. apartment he shared with Lacy.

Artist, Inga Graff

Inga Graff was born in 1977 in Rothenburg, Germany. She was 25 years old and a struggling artist when Igor met her. Igor attended a gallery opening featuring her paintings in Rothenberg and bought one. A vase of irises. Then he asked her to have dinner with him. Their affair lasted only a few months and they parted friends, although Inga never stopped loving him.

Escape Rating A - Marlene Harris, EscapeReality.net

"Like her other books, the story in this one operates on more than one level.  The suspense is edge of the seat, while Lacy's inner journey makes her a sympathetic and fascinating character. If you enjoy edge-of-your-seat suspense with a heart-pounding romance wrapped around a story that also makes you think, read Romantic Road, or any of Blair McDowell's marvelous stories.".....More


5 out of 5 Stars - Jack Magnus, ReadersFavorite.com
"Blair McDowell's romantic suspense novel, Romantic Road, is exciting and fast-paced. Lacy is a strong and appealing character whose fairy-tale marriage has abruptly ended, leaving unanswered questions and danger. The quest Igor sets for her leads her and the reader on a marvelous trip through Canada, Austria and Hungary, and the author's familiarity with each of these venues makes Lacy's adventures truly come alive.".....More

"This is my kind of book: a fast-paced romantic suspense thriller with teeth! And the puzzles Igor left that Lacy must follow all over Europe... beautiful! The secrets will blow your socks off!"

5 out of 5 Stars - Celia Lewis, Pres., Romance Writers of America, Greater Vancouver Chapter
"A challenging love story, a deadly dangerous secret, a mysterious quest from New York through Europe, the latest story from Blair McDowell has it all!... I love romantic suspense, and this story was very fascinating to me, not least because of the unusual locales, adding an exotic flavour. I'm already wanting to read the next story by Blair McDowell!"
