I never believed in evil.

I never thought the devil was real.

Until I was stolen.


I knew Satan existed.

I was convinced I’d be like him one day.

Until my heart was stolen.

Would she be the one to set me free?

Or will I be the one to steal her life?

This is my first book from the author and I have to admit that this one is a really good introduction to her work! I’m pretty much into dark romances a lot lately, so this one was a nice addition!

“Stolen” is the start of Drake and Caia’s story. Since this is a prequel, it pretty much gives us the back story to what “Severed” will be all about. I really enjoyed it but I wanted to find out more. There are so many things going on and so many secrets that are yet to be unveiled!

Some of the characters are into some really dark things, so be warned! I read some things, that I haven’t before to be honest. What happened in the last chapter left me confused and feeling that everything happened so fast that I needed to read the paragraph again!

This book is very promising and I can’t wait to see how everything is going to be in “Severed”!

Dani is an international bestselling author and proud member of the Romance Writer’s Organization of South Africa (ROSA) and the Romance Writers of America (RWA).

A fan of dark romance that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. It’s from this passion that her writing has evolved from sweet and romantic, to dark and delicious. It’s in this world she’s found her calling, growing from strength to strength and hitting her stride.

On a daily basis, she has a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in her head. From the feisty heroines she delivers to the dark, dominant alphas that grace the pages of her books, she promises light in a world filled with danger and darkness.

She has a healthy addiction to reading, TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream.
