Main Characters: Angelina & Blade

Ironically, it all starts with a popular book about BDSM. When Angelina Jameson steps into her boss’s office armed with an acid article about ‘Billionaires, BDSM and Blah-blah-blah’, she thinks her career will take off. But her career aspirations drop into second place when she finds herself face to face with her nemesis.

Blade Spencer is the new editor-in-chief of Unabridged—the literary magazine where his ex-lover Angelina works. For three years, since she fled small town Jamestown without a word of explanation, they haven’t heard from one another. Now, when they meet again, the past and all the feelings they once had between them come rushing back, making them realize their love has never died. But can they reconcile their new circumstances and the changes that have occurred during the three years they were apart? Neither is the person the other used to know.

Then there is the faceless shadow who hunts them from the dark, driven by obsession and greed…

*This book contains strong language and explicit descriptions of sex.


It was quite late when we decided to conclude our meal and go home for a more intimate
celebration. The waiter brought us the bill, smiling pleasantly and asking if we were satisfied
with the service. He congratulated us on our engagement, admitting to me that he was Blade’s accomplice in surprising me with the ring. I assured him I was elated, and Blade gave him a very generous tip, thanking him again for his help. Then the waiter led us to the exit, where we got into an elevator.
We were walking on the narrow sidewalk toward the parking lot, when Blade’s phone
rang. He stopped to answer, but I, carried by the momentum, moved forward to cross the street. Suddenly, I caught one movement from the corner of my eye, and then everything happened as though in slow motion.
The car had shot out like a silent, deadly hunter from the darkness, with its headlights off.
I barely put my foot onto the street and it lunged in my direction, at such a high speed it looked blurry even as I turned my head toward it. It was too late though. My brain had time to realize that I was going to be struck before my body could react. I only felt a tremendous push that shattered my bones and rattled my teeth, while the screeching of tires scraped at my eardrums. The last thing I heard was the sickening sound of my head cracking against the pavement. Then everything went dark.

Angelina had the best story idea! She was so excited to talk to the editor-in-chief about her take on the new book sweeping the world. She was thrilled to give a satirical look into the BDSM movement made mainstream thanks to the current best seller. The feminist in her cheered her on as she wrote the article and while she knew people would object to the story, it would start conversations. That was the whole idea.
Strolling into his office she was shocked to see, her boss not in his chair. Instead, the handsome face from her past looked up to her from his desk. What the heck, Blade Spencer was now her new boss. She had walked away from him 3 years prior and it had been one of the hardest things she ever did. What is he doing here and why did he still affect her so badly? When he makes it apparent he isn’t going anywhere, she has to figure out how and if she can work with him. Is this a second chance for them and who is out there hoping to tear them apart?
Good story and enjoyed the idea of the magazine. Writers featured with short stories, sounds great to me. 3.5 stars

Author Bio

Not long ago, to my surprised delight, somebody described me as being “charming, witty, supremely talented and dangerously fun”. I don’t know how accurate this description is, but I’m curious if the readers will find some of these features reflected in my writing. Speaking of my writing, I must mention that living in Romania – which is considered a projection of the enigmatic and much controversial Shambala, the supposed spiritual center of the Earth – is quite a source of inspiration. I have a native inclination to the occult and paranormal, to mystery and philosophy. The woman in me is a romantic and sensual creature. All these considered, I could describe my writing as being captivating, intriguing, sensual in places and, on the whole, a surreal experience. Enjoy!
