Dante Tieri *swoon* He is just plain yummy!! But, of course this is another one of Angel Payne’s amazing storylines that take you away from the everyday, and into her beautiful and kinky mind of passion, destiny and undeniable, life-affirming love.
Dante and Celina are drawn to each other on a visceral level that shakes them both to their core, but Dante isn’t going to give up, even when Celina’s brick walls close around her heart and her emotions.
Again, Angel draws us into an emotional tug-of-war between 2 people created especially for one another and shows us their journey to their unexpected HEA. The web she weaves with words, is simply astounding! Her characters are so richly developed, their stories sophistically plotted, and her writing is unquestionably something special.
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.
She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), and the popular W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, as well as several stand-alone titles. The Cimarron series launched in 2015 and will continue in 2016.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and gym-ratting (where her skin does NOT look as amazing as this airbrushed picture!).
