New York Times (#8) & USA Today Bestselling Author

As long as she can remember, Michelle has had a strange fascination with anything supernatural and sci-fi. After discovering historical romance novels, it was only natural that the supernatural and love/romance elements should someday meet in her wonderland of a brain. She's glad they did for their children have been pouring onto the computer screen ever since.

Michelle loves to travel and try new things, whether it's a paranormal investigation of an old Vaudeville Theatre or climbing Mayan temples in Belize. She's addicted to movies and used to drive her mother crazy while quoting random scenes with her brother. Though it has yet to happen, her dream is to be a zombie in a horror movie.

For the most part she can be found writing in her office with a cup of coffee in pajama pants.

CRAVE by Dani René 
Forbidden Series Book #1
Dark Romance
— SYNOPSIS —
Samael
Can love overcome hate?

When I first laid eyes on the perfect little blonde, I didn’t think she’d change my life. 
But the first time I tasted her, felt her, took her, I knew she was mine. 
I laid a wordless claim because as much as I desired her, I couldn’t have her.

I craved the dark, she filled me with light.
I loved delivering pain, she craved it.

Opposites merged by circumstance.
Hearts melded by passion.

Angel
Can light defeat darkness?

I should have feared him. 
Everything about him was drenched in the darkness he exuded. 

But one glance into his cobalt eyes, and I knew I was his. 
My heart allowed him entry, as did my body. And after the first time, my soul recognized his.
Desired what he delivered.

I craved his darkness, he bathed in my light.
I submitted to his desires, he craved my very being.

Running from him wasn’t an option.
Fate bound us in its intricate pattern.

*This is a dark romance, suitable for mature audiences, 18+ ONLY. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. Certain scenes are graphic and could be upsetting to some. This story is NOT for everyone. Proceed with caution. Discretion is advised. This is book one of the Forbidden Series, but can be read as a standalone. Each book will feature a different couple. There is NO cliffhanger.

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dani René —
Hey darlings,
I am an indie author and freelance graphic designer. I started focusing on writing in January 2015 and after a few fan fiction stories, I decided to publish Ace of Harts it was my first full length novella. On a daily basis I have a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in my mind. If I am not on Pinterest or Instagram looking for my next muse, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook. So head on over, I love meeting new readers and authors.

When I am in the cave, I am happiest. If you can’t find me sitting behind my trusty MacBook writing about hot alpha males, I am probably drinking coffee at a coffee shop, or wine tasting one of the few hundred wine farms in my home city of Cape Town, in South Africa.

I have an addiction to reading (who doesn’t?), TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream. I am constantly looking for a new book to get lost in and new book boyfriend to fall in love with. My favorite authors include – M Never, K Webster, KL Kreig, Meghan March, and that’s just to name a few!

Much love xo

Recenzie Întoarcerea (Am murit, din fericire 1) de Theo Anghel

Tanara Oriana moare intr-un accident, chiar in ziua nuntii ei. Pentru oricine, acesta ar parea sfarsitul. Nu si pentru ea. Se intoarce ca recuperator de suflete, insa nu la vechea viata si familie, pentru care trebuie sa ramana moarta, ci la una cu totul noua. Rasfatul si confortul, considerate garantate mai inainte, se duc acum pe Apa Sambetei. Va trebui sa lupte pentru a-i salva pe ceilalti, dar si pe sine. Apar noi prieteni, noi dusmani si… prima iubire?

Exista viata dupa moarte? Unii vor spune ca da, altii ca nu. Dar exista un raspuns la care cu siguranta nu v-ati gandit. Exista recuperatorii de suflete. Smulsi din existentele lor, sunt aruncati in altele, neintrebati de nimeni, fara sa li se ceara acceptul. Trebuie doar sa se supuna legilor celor de Dincolo. Iar unii aleg razvratirea…




My opinion:

Înainte de a-mi exprima gândurile în ceea ce privește cartea asta, aș vrea să mulțumesc din tot sufletul Editurii Quantum pentru că mi-a trimis aceste minunătții de cărți, printre care se numără, evident, și această carte. You guys ROCK! Și tot odată, vreau să vă mulțumesc și pentru tot ce faceți pentru scriitori români ai zilelor noastre și felul în care încurajați tineretul de rând să descopere și scriitori noștri români, care merită promovați până în pânzele albe.

Nu am mai citit de ceva vreme fantasy, și cu siguranța nu de la un autor român. Am încercat să mă distanțez de genul ăsta pentru că la începuturile mele de cititor devoram fantasy și pe pâine. Așa că am zis că o perioadă bună de timp, și asta a pornit așa din subconștient, nu o să mă mai ating de ceva pur fantasy. Am mai citit cărți care au elemente fantasy în ele, nu mă înțelegeți greșit, sau am m-ai strecurat câte o carte de Cassandra Clare pe ici pe colo, dar doar la atât m-am rezumat. Așa că am fost destul de sceptică și intrigată în același timp când am primit cartea pentru recenzie.
Pot să spun cu toată sinceritatea că mi-a luat ceva până am pătruns din nou în această lume. Pentru că nu am mai fost obișnuită cu acest gen de pur fantasy și să mai vină și din partea unui român... WOW. Mi-a creat o poftă atât de intensă de fantasy pe care nu credeam că pot să o am vreodată.
Personajul principal, Oriana, pe lângă faptul că are un nume cu totul neobișnuit și care m-a atras în prima instanță, e un poersonaj atât de însuflețit, chiar dacă a avut parte de o suferință, dacă pot să spun așa, atât de tragică. A fost atât de unică și de minunată prin felul ei de a fi, încât nu pot să o compar cu nimeni. Și asta e un lucru excepțional de bun, în ceea ce mă privește pe mine. Pe lângă faptul că era pe cât de poate de umană, atât în sentimente, cât și în comportament, i-am adorat ironicul simț al umorului. Și pot să spun că la acest aspect m-am identificat 100% cu ea. Iar lasând la o parte faptul acesta, cred că e singurul personaj feminin aparținând genului fantasy care sparge tiparele preconcepute deja de alți acum multă vreme.

Theo Anghel a reușit să creeze o lume pur fantastică, pline de elemente ale acestei lumi paralele, ascunsă de ochiul chior al muritorului de rând care crede doar în ceea ce e palpabil și în nimic în ceea ce nu e vizibil, și tot odată să ofere o poveste care trece dincolo de granițele fantasticului. Mi-a plăcut enorm că centrul ei de focusare nu a fost povestea de dragoste, pe care vrem nu vrem o întâlnim în orice poveste fantasy și fără de care nici unul dintre noi nu ar putea trăi, ci pe transformarea Orianei și felul cum ea se intregrează în această lume nouă pe  care o cunoaște , dar pe care nu a întâlnit-o niciodată.

De la tristețe din primele pagini, la răzbunare, durere, foamete, amuzament și umor negru, suspans până la cele mai minuțioase elemente ale fantasticului, le întâlnim pe toate în povestea împărtășită de Theo Anghel cititorilor români. Și să nu uităm căaventura nu se încheie aici. Mai avem de descoperit atâtea și atâtea, pe lângă scrisul absolut formidabil și plin de maturitate, drumul parcurs încontinuare de Oriana în descoperirea ei de sine în următoarele volume ale acestei serii. Enjoy! :)

Cartea are  300 de pagini, coperta tip paperback și poate fi comandată de pe site-ul Editurii Quantum.

Favorite quotes:

„If there weren’t so many lies in the world... I wouldn’t write at all.

„Scopurile scuză mijloacele.

Drumul spre Iad e pavat cu intenții bune.”

Ever wondered about the personalities behind your favorite books? Victoria Danann's new podcast with Riley J. Ford has an incredible lineup of authors booked through the spring. No question is out of bounds. Check it out!

THIS WEEK'S BEST SELLING AUTHOR...
VICTORIA DANANN!

New York Times bestselling author of eighteen romances including paranormal, scifi, fantasy, contemporary, and teen. Victoria's Knights of Black Swan series won BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE SERIES and PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL OF THE YEAR the past FOUR YEARS IN A ROW. This past year two of her series took the top two places and two of her books took first and second place Paranormal Romance of the Year category. - Reviewers Choice Awards, The Paranormal Romance Guild.
Her paranormal romances come with uniquely fresh perspectives on "imaginary" creatures, characters, and themes. She adds a dash of scifi, a flourish of fantasy, enough humor to make you laugh out loud, and, occasionally, enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. Her heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, werewolves, hybrids, psychics, or past life therapists. Her heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners... usually.
The rich characterizations come from being a lifelong student of behavior, casually, and a serious student of behavior academically. She also studied comparative religion, myths, and Dark Ages history.
Victoria lives in The Woodlands, Texas with her husband and a very smart, mostly black German Shepherd dog.

THIS WEEK'S BEST SELLING AUTHOR...
ANGEL PAYNE!

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on "swap stories" they'd trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue, to be re-released through Totally Bound Publishing starting late 2016!), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimed Cimarron and Temptation Court series.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
