Editorial Reviews


"The author deftly interweaves the plot as it twists and turns until the reader fears for the lives of heroes Jackie and Michael. It's a fast paced, suspenseful read, with diabolical villains, an intrepid heroine and a super hot detective!" - InD'tale Magazine

"The chemistry between the main characters, Jackie and Michael, is fiery and passionate right from the start, but what I really liked is that they were able to keep their heads to solve the mystery even as their relationship blossomed. There are plenty of bad guys and plenty of action in this book..." - Caroline Fardig, bestselling author

"This book LITERALLY sucked me in with the very first paragraph. I had a very hard time putting this book down because it is so action packed!" - Joe Cool Review

"I would summarize 'Spellbound in His Arms' in one word: exciting! This was a fun easy read that had it all; romance, excitement and mystery with Corfu for the backdrop of the story." - The Masquerade Crew

"Sefer spins a riveting tale of deceit, murder, and love at first sight. Not your typical love story, Spellbound In His Arms is perfect for those who enjoy animal magnetism based romances." - Readers' Favorite

From the Author

The Greek Isles Series
The Greek islands--alluring destinations that cast a spell on the visitor from the very first moment--are among my favorite settings. I have written a series of standalone mystery romance novels--The Greek Isles Series--each taking place on a different island.
In this series, dark mysteries mingle with sizzling romances while the impeccable beauty of the enchanting Greek Islands will steal the reader's heart away.
Award-winning,bestseller Spellbound in HisArms is the first novel published in The Greek Isles Series. In this suspenseful tale of murder, deceit, and political cover-up, sexy investigative reporter Jackie Alexander ignites the fury and stirs the passion of mysterious police detective Michael Apostolou. The action unfolds on majestic Corfu in the dazzling aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea.
Bestseller Deadly Secrets is the second novel published in The Greek Isles Series. Stunning Helena Sistakis and seductive Captain Dimitris Nikolaou confront each other--and make sparks--in this suspenseful tale of murder, deception, betrayal, and forbidden love. The action unfolds on picturesque Mykonos in the sparkling sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea.

The Heiress of Santorini is the third novel published in The Greek Isles Series. The startling truth about her billionaire client drives breathtaking insurance manager Alexandra Stewart over the edge. But, it cannot quell her desire for sinfully handsome and off-limits Mark Taylor. This tale of non-stop action, suspense, deceit, and murder unfolds in Atlanta, New York, and on the awe-inspiring island of Santorini--a precious gem in the Aegean Sea that is still an active volcano with spectacular rock formations, impressive lunar landscapes, and breathtaking red and black sand beaches.

Award-winning, Dark Shadows of The Past is the fourth novel published in The Greek Isles Series. Dazzling Christina Connors is caught in a deadly game of conspiracy, murder, betrayal, and vengeance while desperately trying to conceal her real identity. Seductively handsome police detective Dan Mallory puts his job and life on the line to protect this feisty enchantress from the threat hovering over her. The non-stop action and sizzling romance unfold in Atlanta, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia, and the island of Kefalonia--the fascinating setting of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" in the amazing aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea.
Lethal Web of Passion is the fifth novel published in The Greek IslesSeries. Startling legal assistant Eleanna Welsh has a secret... Ever since her father was forced to walk out on them, she's been training in martial arts to confront the evil mind who destroyed her family. Now the time has come, and Eleanna finds herself with an inheritance of a luxury resort on the Greek island of Skopelos and a powerful and seductive partner, Stephanos Ioannou. As danger and passion collide, the mystifying island seems to hide far more secrets than Eleanna expected. A mystery man, a ruthless assassin, an authoritative Contessa and her lifelong enemies weave a lethal web, full of danger, betrayal, and passion.
Harbor in the Storm is the sixth novel in The Greek Isles Series. Stunning Natalie Asimakis returns to Atlanta from a trip to find an anonymous letter that tore her peaceful life apart--her husband, reporter James Cassidy, has been kidnapped. Danger, conspiracy, betrayal, and deadly secrets of her husband's revealed double life place Natalie's life in jeopardy. The only one she can turn to for help is Daniel McKenzie--a prominent attorney with powerful connections. But there is a problem...Natalie and Daniel had a stormy love affair that left scars burned indelibly in her body and soul. The non-stop action unfolds in Atlanta and the amazing Greek island of Skiathos--a paradise with lush pine forests and crystal-clear sapphire waters. Harbor in the Storm will be available Spring 2016.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

Jackie and Michael meet in a mansion on the Greek island of Corfu under gloomy circumstances which do not allow them the luxury of pleasantries. They're both there with a secret agenda and despite their immediate physical attraction towards each other, from the word go they strive to overcome their suspicions and caution.

The sexual tension between them soon becomes too unbearable to resist. As they join forces to solve a murder case, they kiss every now and then with passion, only to regret it moments later, their desire once again overcome by doubt and apprehension about the other's true motives and intentions.

With the breaking news of more than one murder on the island and a vicious, unidentified killer lurking in the shadows, the lives of Jackie and Michael soon become a whirlwind of agony and fear.

This novel is an easy read and can be devoured in one sitting, especially as the author manages to keep the reader on their toes with constant twists and turns in the plot. The climax is delivered satisfactorily with one surprise after the next, bringing the two protagonists to a happy ending.

The first book in Angel Sefer's Greek Isles Series is an intriguing read that will satisfy every avid reader of romance and mystery. The author is masterful in her ability to keep the reader guessing. I’m now looking forward to reading the second book in the series.

As the author of "Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy" about the incomparable Michael Jackson [and of another non-fiction book], I have read very little fiction during recent years. As a literary side-trip into fiction, I read "Spellbound in His Arms" after it was highly recommended to me by a friend. Across the three days that I spent reading Angel Sefer's delightful book, I felt that I had escaped to Greece and an entirely different world of people, places, and plot development.
"Spellbound in His Arms" is a skillful blend of romance and mystery with an intriguing story line. The mansion that is a central site in the story emerges as almost another character in the book. Angel's descriptions of Greece -- Corfu and Athens -- are so vivid that the reader feels present in the scenes. Her development of the romantic relationship is interesting and complex because of its unique aspects -- suspicion, intrigue, doubt, and the strong "push-and-pull" of love that is intertwined with the unfolding of the mystery.
I recommend this book not only to those who prefer reading mysteries and romantic novels but to those who would like an enjoyable interlude from other genres or from non-fiction. Good writing, Angel!

Investigative reporter Jackie Alexander travels to Corfu, Greece and pokes around the Demiris mansion in the middle of the night, hoping to find out what’s behind the string of murders in her family. She doesn’t expect to run into detective Michael Apostolou, though, who has his own agenda for being in the mansion in the dead of night. Then there’s physical attraction, kidnappings, shootouts and intrigue that kept me reading late into the night.

Sefer’s romantic suspense story kept me on the edge of my seat and was hard to put down. There were lots of twists and turns, so I was never sure who to trust and what was going to happen next. I can’t wait to read another book by this author.

This book swept me off my feet to the Greek Islands, somewhere I wouldn't mind visiting. I saw a few tweets about the book and checked it out because I'm a big mystery fan but I like to read books with a love story too. Michael was a great character. Brave, smart, and definitely sexy. The other main character, Jackie, was smart and brave too, in her own way. They made a good pairing. The secondary characters were interesting without being cliches. The author's writing style is straight to the point and concise, exactly what you want for a fact-paced adventure. Definitely a book you'd recommend to a friend.

I read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Another intriguing tale from Angel Sefer and her Greek Isles Series centred on a series of murders, the victims of which are the heirs of the fortune of a Greek tycoon. The story has a feel of the Onassis dynasty, but that isn't the main focus, just the background. The story is itself follows two of the people investigating these crimes, a reporter and a detective and builds around the chemistry and sexual tension between them. Ms Sefer has an absorbing style and casts you into a cauldron of emotions as you become embroiled in her stories. She has an exquisite knack of keeping you interested throughout, throwing in surprises when you least expect them. She also paints a vivid picture of the rich and powerful, and of how money does not always bring you happiness. Excellent book for lovers of romance and mystery.

I finished reading "Spellbound in his Arms" in a single day. Trust me, that was not my intention. My very busy schedule allows me to read while I commute to work and just a bit in bed, before my eyes slide shut and my Kindle hits me on the nose. Well, that wasn't the case here. I stayed up well after my usual bedtime because I just had to finish this riveting story. Angel Sefer weaves an intricate story full of twists, turns, mistrust and unexpected surprises that come down in a torrent from the very first page! The reader has barely time to pause and breathe in the intoxicating bougainvillea aromas or take in the wonderful Corfiat scenery, and yet another gunshot makes investigative reporter Jackie Alexander take flight. Most of the times though, she runs right into gorgeous detective's Michael Apostolou's arms. If only she could be sure where he stands in this web of manipulative, deadly heirs and their victims that keep adding up.

If you enjoy suspenseful romances set against an exotic island setting, "Spellbound in his Arms" is just the book for you.
