As a youngster, Bella Settarra used to dream of becoming an author, and wrote many tales, poems and letters. However, as she grew up she wasn't able to write so much, as exams, work and family overtook hobbies such as writing, so it looked as though her stories were to become a thing of the past. That was until she was very ill in March 2013, after undergoing surgery related to cancer. While lying in a hospital bed contemplating her life, she realized that her biggest regret was never fulfilling her dream of becoming a published author. Determined to succeed and make her family - as well as herself - proud, she resolved to write a publishable book within the next twelve months. In November 2013 her first novel, Last of the Sirens, was published, and went on to become the first of a six-part serial. Just a month later, fate dealt her another bad hand when she was forced to leave her day job as she could no longer cope with the ever-increasing hours she was expected to work while struggling with ill health. Writing became her life-line, turning a pleasurable hobby into a fulfilling career. Now able to once-again enjoy life, she finds that writing gives her the freedom to work when she is able and rest when she is not. It encourages her dreams and nurtures her ambitions. She also has more time for her family, and for her love of driving around the English countryside in her open-top car, listening to country music. Bella's imagination knows no bounds, and she has gone from writing a mythical series, Sirens and Sailors, to writing about cowboys and a current work in progress about a group of restaurant staff. Her novels include MM, MF, MFM and MMF as well as various elements of BDSM, but, most importantly, they are about love. She hopes that you enjoy reading her stories as much as she enjoys writing them, and loves to hear from her readers via her blog, email or social media. bellasettarrabooks.blogspot.co.uk email@example.com https://www.facebook.com/#!/bella.settarra
Amaranda is a young Siren ready to take her place as a temptress on the beautiful island of Refrainia. Then she meets a young sailor named Eban Gal and everything changes for her.
Last of the Sirens is a romantically happy journey full of twists and turns. Just when you think you know where the story is leading, it suddenly veers off into a new and wonderful direction. I enjoyed experiencing the discovery of love (and at times --evil) through the innocent eyes of young Amaranda.
Sirens are not the only fantasy beings in the story, but as with the Sirens, the descriptions wonderfully bring the mythological creatures to life. I hesitate to reveal any more as I don’t want to spoil the fun and wonder for other readers.
Ms. Settarra’s biography at the end of the book says she’s working on the next title. That’s great because I can’t wait to read what happens next on Refrainia.
