Last November 27, a very talented writer, poet and a very good friend of mine-S. J Warner, released her new stand alone novel called Aphrodite’s Fire. Today I am so glad that she was able to drop by and tell us something about her book.
I can’t wait to read this so let’s hear it from her…
What can I say about Aphrodite’s Fire? Well it is in essence a romance, all be it a dark, twisted, suspenseful thriller with some truly dark moments. The story is based around Luca and Serena, both are from mob families but after the murder of her parents Serena runs away, changing her name to Brandy she tries to escape her past not realising her past is looking for her, that’s where Luca comes in. Think the blurb explains it better. 😉
I’m really proud of this story and the characters that I’ve created and I hope everyone else loves it as much as both my beta’s and I do.
Thank you again for having me over and letting your readers know about Aphrodite’s Fire.
Forced to flee from her past Serena finds herself struggling to survive in the seedy world of strippers, never imagining she could be found.
After changing her identity to hide from those who had massacred her family, her life is far from easy. Just as she begins to feel safe her past catches up with her, a past that remembers her all to well.
One fateful night she finds herself rescued and befriended by Luca, an elegant man that she doesn’t recognise as the threat he could be.
Over the years Luca’s adoration of her memory had kept him sustained as he sought to find the young girl he had fallen in love with. Upon finding her, he finds himself determined to protect her from the dark forces that seek her demise.
What Serena is yet to learn as she finds herself falling in love with Luca is he is in the employ of the very man who needs her silenced.
With warped and twisted enforcers actively hunting them Luca tries to sideline those that hunt her with false information not realising just how close the danger really is.
The two lovers soon find they are snared at every turn. Can they move beyond their pained pasts and the danger of the present to buy themselves a future or will the sadistic enemy they face rip their lives apart?
