Book Review of Star Crossed by Jessica Wayne and Meg Anne

My Dear Readers,

When I heard that Jessica Wayne was going to co-write a new book, I was intrigued from the start. Jessica Wayne is an awesome Author of Fantasy Romance and Romance Suspense. I have read  a lot of her books. I have reviewed her books as well.

Most of my reviews are on Amazon but this one was here so I am adding the link here. Book Review of Concealed by Jessica Wayne. A Tethered Duet by Jessica Wayne was my first book by this author but Concealed and Collateral Damage will always be at the top of my list just like A Tethered Duet. Don’t worry, all of Jessica Wayne’s books are awesome including the one that I will be talking about today.

Five🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Stars for Star-crossed

To be honest with you, I could not put this book down. I read three or four chapters a day. Reading this book has been shocking to me in unexpected ways. Lucas and Skye are both different, so different from each other that no one could ever imagine that they could fit together. Lucas is a detective and Skye is an awesome artist. Their lives could not be more different. But somehow throughout the book, their destinies merge together.

Skye is determined to help Lucas solve a crime and along the way they find out that solving this crime may not be as easy as they think. Lucas discovers some shocking things about himself and at that moment it seems like fate may pull him away from Skye forever but somehow it pulls them closer and despite the fact that the murderer is out there, Lucas and Skye start developing feelings for each other. No matter how hard they try to suppress the new feeling of love, it seems to be a helpful factor in their fight for justice.

Meg Anne and Jessica Wayne weave a story like nothing I ever read before. The characters jump out of the book and demand to be heard. The idea of how magic is incorporated into the story is incredible. A druid on a killing spree, there can’t be anything better. I want to say that this book has been the best book I read that came out of a collaborative work. Somehow, these two authors made it work and the characters are even more vivid than normal. Lucas and Skye are a couple that should stay away from each other but the more I read about them, the more I think that they belong together.

For a long time, I thought writing with another Author was not a good idea. But Jessica Wayne and Meg Anne make it happen and it is magical. If there are two authors who blend together, it’s these two ladies. I would love to see them write more books together in the future because I’m hooked on this series  and can’t wait to read Book 2 and 3.

Blurb:

Crime scenes with ritualistic murders are starting to pop up everywhere, and the only thing Lucas knows for sure is that the mysterious Skye is at the center of it all.

An ancient power rises determined to end them both.

Thrown together by fate, and a destiny slowly spiraling out of their control, they will have to learn to trust each other or the next deaths might be their own.

Let’s Celebrate Love on Valentine’s Day

valentines-day-gift-ideas-for-her-1050x700My Dear Readers,

Today is February 14th, Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is meant for lovers, right? In a traditional way, yes. But, since I am still single and no, I’m not ashamed to admit it because it’s who I am, I am trying to look at love from all different angles. Love has different meanings for everyone.

On February 14th, if you are like me, try to think about the different people in your life: your parents, your siblings, your friends, your other family members, anyone who you love. A day that centers around love is a great day. I believe that to love and to be loved is the best thing in life. When I look around at my friends, I can sometimes see that they have found someone who loves them and that alone gives me hope that one day it will happen for me.

20190214_032027My grandparents were married for 63 years before my grandmother died and you know what? Their love story is the greatest love story I have ever heard. Love always finds a way. I believe in true love because of my grandparents and I know that people who are meant to be together will be.  My deepest wish always was to find someone who would love me like my grandfather loved my grandmother. They were one of a kind people but they taught me a lot about true love.

One day, I do hope that love will finally find me as well. I write about true love and I want to live it someday. As the song goes, “Someday my prince will come, someday I will find my love and what a thrilling moment it will be when the prince of my dreams comes to me…..” if only that was true. But I guess I won’t find out today. Love will come when it’s ready.

But for now, I love my family and friends and my FANTASTIC readers. So, no matter what you do today, know that someone loves you. Someone cares about you. Someone wants you to be happy. True love never disappoints so let it come and treasure it. I love you all so much. Thank you for being here with me and joining me as I write my books!

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours truly,

Diana Rose

Getting Ready for My First Book Signing at Kingsborough Community College

My Dear Readers,

So as luck would have it, I have been invited to do two book signings in 2019. I’m so EXCITED ABOUT IT! Can you tell how excited I am? I hope so because I am over the moon excited. No, I’m not exaggerating. I really can’t wait. In  case you haven’t read my 2019 plans, you can read them here: Release Plans for 2019-2020 (Can change).

Now, I will have some fun things to do like ordering more books, more flyers, bookmarks, and pens and possibly other things to decorate the table.

I even made an event for it on my Author Page. Kingsborough career day event.  If you are in Brooklyn, NY on April 4th, please come by, we would love to have you there. It’s going to be a great event. I am so excited about interacting with my new readers. My readers are why I’m doing this. I will definitely write about it in a blog post after.

Now, I have things to do. I have a speech to memorize. This will be the first time I ever make a speech. AHHHHH! I have not made a speech in a long time and I have stage fright so I might just have an interesting experience to write about later. But, you know what? I am going to remember this first book signing no matter what because I always wanted to go sign my book to my Readers. No matter if I mess up or not, I know that I will do great!

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours truly,

Excerpt #3 from Book 1: Forbidden Love

My Dear Readers,

So sorry for not posting this yesterday but to be honest, I posted it at almost 11:00pm yesterday because I really forgot about it. I hope you can forgive me.

Here’s the excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love by Diana Rose

Copyright 2018 by Diana Rose

    “Amy, sweetheart, we are trying to protect you from anything and anyone who could hurt you.  In doing so, we ask you to pack your bags tonight. Tomorrow your father will bring you to the castle that we built just for you. We hoped that you would  move there when you were old enough to live on your own, but we suppose that right now would be a perfect time for it,” said Queen Alyona.

    Amy felt the floor snatched from beneath her feet. She grew hysterical as the realization of what was happening set in. They were sending her away.  A sudden coldness hit her to the core as she stumbled backwards. Her eyes widened and she looked at her mother again. “Mother, say it isn’t so. This isn’t what you and father decided to do to me. I don’t understand why you are doing this. You are such a sweet mother and would never hurt your child, or would you?” At this point, Amy’s voice rose to a scream.. She could not believe her mother’s cruelty. The feeling of hope that once resided in her heart was now encompassed by a black hole of despair. Everything seemed to crumble around her as it was clear that her destiny had been already set in stone.

    Queen Alyona spoke in a stern, authoritative tone–one that made Amy feel as if she was a culprit being sentenced for a crime. “You have no right to question our decision. Everything has been decided upon and the only thing you can do is to leave now. You may not see this today but this is for your own good, Amy. In time you will grow to understand why we did this and you will be grateful for this. But until then, we feel it is best for you to be away from this……Prince Darien. He is not worthy of you.”

🌹🌹Welcome to January 1st 2019🌹🌹

My Dear Readers,

🌹🌹HAPPY 🌹🌹2019🌹🌹NEW 🌹🌹YEAR!!🌹🌹Welcome to January 1st.

Today is the first day of a new year and a new month. I hope that this year will bring new hopes, new goals to achieve, new achievements, new opportunities, new memories and more good things.

This year I do have a lot planned for my writing career. I hope to write more and get Book 2 published this year so you don’t have to wait too long. 2019 is going to be BIGGER THAN EVER for me at least and it starts next week with a Author Spotlight on Jessica Lauryn’s blog. The rest is outlined with dates in the Blog post I made (https://themagicoftruelove.wordpress.com/2018/12/12/release-plans-for-2019-2020-can-change/).

But really this year, I really want to focus on my writing more since I am officially self-published. Time to start my writing career seriously. I have at least two more Series planned. Jessica Lauryn has 18 Series planned and I am looking forward to planning out that many in the near future. But I am telling you that I am going to be closer to finishing The Power of Love Series with these two years and that’s a promise.

Anyway, I do hope 2019 will be better for all of us. At least we have to try.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

ONLY TWO DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased!!!

My Dear Readers,

ONLY TWO DAYS UNTIL THE RERELEASE! I can’t wait and I’m the author.

I never thought that I would come this far with this book. Back then, I just had so many ideas that all I wanted was to get them on paper. But soon I began to enjoy writing and slowly I began to develop my ideas for this story: Book 1: Forbidden Love. During that time everyone around me thought that this story was completely fiction but it’s not really all fiction. Some of it is real.

Now, in two days, you can read the book that will start a series. It’s a story of a family, a story that will follow Prince Darien and Princess Amy through their lives just like we live our lives in the real world. There is so much that this series will talk about that you will not expect and will want to know more. Now, I’m not sure how many books there will be yet but as I write them, I will tell you. This is only the beginning…….

I can tell you that I am going to be writing for a long time.

Get ready because once this book goes on Amazon on October 15th, it is going to be a great read. You don’t want miss it. Of course I will put the links up.

It will be the HOTTEST NEW READ of the Fall season.  I promise.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours truly,

Diana Rose
