Mina never imagined how much her life would change from the moment her parents had been taken from her at such an early age. Determined to find a meaning to the life she’s led, thus far, she’s become something totally unexpected, intent on exacting retribution upon the person who’s taken everything from her. An unexpected meeting soon changes her life forever. Unwilling to sit on the sidelines, she takes matters into her own hands, never once imagining how much she’ll have to endure if she’s to come out of her ordeal unscathed.

Charmaine Pauls and Anna Zaires are forces to be reckoned with when it comes to co-authoring awesome books. Though dark in tone, Darker Than Love is one of those books that gets under your skin and stays there. We’re presented with flawed, yet intriguing characters who are hell-bent on coexisting beneath harsh conditions.

Mina and Yan are like Yin and Yang, opposites that mesh in more ways than one. Alone, they’re each dealing with their own remorse, pains, and heartaches. Together, their innate chemistry rises to the surface and stays there. Both of these characters have dealt with unimaginable tragedies. Neither is sure whether they’ll be able to attain an end to their own means, yet they do. Granted, doing so requires taking drastic measures if the need to do so arises.

The authors have shown just how much these characters are willing to go in order to find their own happiness. Mind you, the road in getting there is difficult at best. A complex world, it’s awesome to see just how much these two authors will go in testing the boundaries that surround each and every character found within this intriguing series. Bring on book 2, please!

SYNOPSIS

An Enemies-to-Lovers Standalone

Once upon a cold, dark night, a Russian killer stole me from an alley.
I’m dangerous, but he is lethal.
I escaped once.
He won’t let me do it twice.

The revenge is his.
The betrayal is mine.
But so are the lies to protect the ones I love.

We’re cut from the same twisted cloth. Both merciless. Both damaged.
In his embrace, I find hell and heaven, his cruelly tender touch destroying and uplifting me at once.

They say a cat has nine lives, but an assassin has just one.
And Yan Ivanov now owns mine.

Anna Zaires fell in love with books at the age of five, when her grandmother taught her to read. She wrote her first story shortly thereafter. Since then, she has always lived partially in a fantasy world where the only limits were those of her imagination. Currently residing in Florida, Anna is happily married to Dima Zales (a science fiction and fantasy author) and closely collaborates with him on all their works.

After graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in Economics, Anna spent eight years on Wall Street analyzing stocks and writing research reports. In 2013, she became a full-time author, pursuing her lifelong dream of writing romance novels.

Dima Zales is the love of her life and a huge inspiration in all aspects of her writing. Every book Anna writes is a product of their unique collaborative process.

In addition to reading and writing, Anna enjoys drinking tea (coconut oolong, anyone?), watching addictive TV shows, and discussing book ideas during long walks with her amazing husband.

She loves hearing from her readers, so please don’t hesitate to contact her through her website or connect with her on Facebook, where she hangs out way too often. Also, please visit her husband and collaborator, Dima Zales, at www.dimazales.com and check out their fantasy & science fiction books.
