Love or betrayal…
Seductively handsome police detective Dan Mallory takes over Christina’s case and vows to protect the feisty enchantress. But when her real identity is revealed, the betrayal is mind blowing.

About the Author: 

Angel Sefer was born in Athens, Greece, and has studied and worked on both sides of the Atlantic. She holds a degree in Economics and divides her time between the corporate world and her true passion: reading and writing mystery romance novels, full of heart-racing action, suspense, twists and turns, and breathtaking romance.

Angel is an award-winning, bestselling author, a blogger, and a member of ASMSG, WLC, and several other writers groups.

She lives in Athens, Greece, with the two loves of her life—her son and her husband.

The Greek islands—alluring destinations that cast a spell on the visitor from the very first moment—are among her favorite settings. She has written a whole series of standalone mystery romance novels—The Greek Isles Series—each taking place on a different island.

In this series, dark mysteries mingle with sizzling romances, while the reader enjoys the virtual experience of visiting some of the most enchanting Greek islands. The impeccable beauty of those islands—where nature exists lavishly in hundred shades of green and blue, and centuries of Greek tradition coexist harmoniously with cosmopolitan activity—will steal the reader’s heart away.

Award-winning, bestseller Spellbound in His Arms is the first novel published in The Greek Isles Series. In this suspenseful tale of murder, deceit, and political cover-up, sexy investigative reporter Jackie ignites the fury and stirs the passion of mysterious police detective Michael. The action unfolds on majestic Corfu in the dazzling aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea.

Bestseller Deadly Secrets is the second novel published in The Greek Isles Series. Stunning Helena and seductive Captain Dimitris confront each other—and make sparks—in this suspenseful tale of murder, deceit, embezzlement, and treachery. The action unfolds on picturesque Mykonos—one of the most beautiful islands in the sparkling sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea—and is supported by a steamy story of forbidden love.

The Heiress of Santorini is the third novel published in The Greek Isles Series. The startling truth about her billionaire client drives breathtaking insurance manager Alexandra over the edge but cannot quell her desire for sinfully handsome and off-limits Mark. This tale of non-stop action, suspense, deceit, and murder unfolds in Atlanta, New York, and on the awe-inspiring island of Santorini—a precious gem in the Aegean Sea that is still an active volcano with spectacular rock formations, impressive lunar landscapes, and breathtaking red and black sand beaches.

Dark Shadows of The Past is the fourth novel in The Greek Isles Series. Dazzling Christina is caught in a deadly game of conspiracy, murder, treachery, and vengeance while desperately trying to conceal her real identity. Seductively handsome police detective Dan puts his job and life on the line to protect this feisty enchantress from the threat hovering over her. The non-stop action and steamy romance unfolds in Atlanta, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia, and the island of Cephalonia—the fascinating setting of “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” in the amazing aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea. Dark Shadows of The Past will be available Spring 2015.

An Intimate Interview with Angel Sefer:

What genre do you enjoy writing the most? Why?
I love action, puzzling mysteries, exhilarating thrillers, and, of course, I adore romance. So, I enjoy writing mystery romance novels, full of heart-racing action, suspense, twists and turns, and breathtaking romance.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?
My stories are always full of surprises, even for me. You see, I don’t plan things ahead of time. Seeing a beautiful photo of a couple or landscape, I get inspired and start writing. The story unfolds from then on and takes me to wonderful places. And every now and then, a new twist / surprise comes to mind and changes things. I love that. The moment I sit down to write, I don’t know where my characters and plot will take me, and I’m just as eager and excited to find out as my readers afterwards.

Who is your favorite hero of fiction?
James Bond

Who or what has been the greatest love of your life?
My son, Dimitris and my husband, Bill.

What is your greatest regret?
Having hurt some people I deeply care about. I was young and restless, and I didn’t think much about it then. But now, I know that all the hardships we go through leave scars in our soul, and I genuinely regret my careless behavior.

Which book have you read the most in your lifetime?
All of Agatha Christie’s books—I could not pick only one even if I wanted to. I’ve read every single one, over and over again, at first enjoying the twists, the turns, the excitement of trying to solve the mystery, and afterwards admiring the masterful way of her writing.
I’ve also read many times Rhonda Byrne’s books: The Secret, The Power, The Magic, and Hero.

What is your favorite journey? Metaphorically or otherwise?
The journey to that special, inner place of tranquility and peace

Dogs or Cats? Which do you prefer and why?
I love dogs—I think they are the most adorable and loyal friends a person can have.

What do you most value in a friend?
I value loyalty and support.

What quality do you most admire in a woman/man, lover/spouse or influencer/boss?
I admire honesty.

What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
My dear author friend Lilian Roberts—author of the popular Immortal Rapture Series

What does your family think about your career as a published author?
They are happy and proud I was able to make my dream come true. My husband is my greatest supporter / fan, and my five-year-old son can’t stop talking to his friends about his mom writing books.

Besides writing, what other interests do you have?
Besides writing, I love spending time with my family and especially my son. When I have free time—which is limited, since I’ve become a mother—I enjoy yoga, aerobics, dancing, basketball, and I practice Wado Ryu Karate.

Which book that you’ve written is your favorite?
Deadly Secrets—the 2nd mystery romance novel published in The Greek Isles Series. In fact, Deadly Secrets was the first novel I started writing at the age of eighteen. The first draft was completed within two years. However, this passion sat on the back backburner for a long time, since university studies and a corporate career absorbed most of my time. It was a lot later when I decided to devote time to my writing, and after I had completed twelve novels, I decided to share them with the world.

Where do you get your greatest ideas for writing?
I get inspired by sitting by the seaside or up in the mountains or looking at beautiful photos of couples or landscapes.

Silence/Music/TV for background?
When I write, I prefer silence. The story plays in the back of my mind, and I hear the dialogues loud and clear.

What is your writing advice to aspiring authors?
To respect their readers, be honest and write from their heart.

I always write what feels good to me and don’t worry what genre sells most right now.
