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.

3 stars for Unabridged
This is the story of Blade and Angelina. A story that started when they were young and still in high school. They were madly in love with each other and thought that it would last forever. But the whispering and gossip were too much for Angelina to ignore. They all knew she came from nothing and was therefore nothing. Her mother was a struggling single mom and they didn’t have much. Not wanting to bring down Blade, Angie did something drastic. Now years later, they unexpectantly meet up. But will things be just as they were? Have there been too much time to heal the past?
“Blade Spencer had been the only man I’d ever loved. He’d been my first love and my first lover. The brief time we’d spent together had been the most beautiful period of my life. I remembered picnics in the forest and walks in the summer rain. Strolls in the park and stolen kisses. Hours of making love and promises of eternal bliss. But our relationship hadn’t ended in eternal bliss. ‘Hello Angelina,’ he said in his deep, husky voice, startling me out of my reverie.”
This story was cute, but I had a hard time keeping my interest. Story seemed to drag on and I didn’t understand how quickly they came together.

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!
