Kindle Explosion: Paranormal Novel - Embraced by the Shadows by Mayra Calvani

Three-hundred year-old Ottoman prince vampire falls for a Latina Nietzsche freak fresh out of college.

Embraced by the Shadows by Mayra Calvani breaks free from the depths of passion, love and betrayal and reveals itself through a Kindle explosion.

In a bazaar in Istanbul one evening, ten-year-old Alana Piovanetti sees a man standing in the shadows. He smiles, and over time she convinces herself that it was just her imagination that placed sharp fangs amongst those flashing teeth.

Twelve years later, Alana is surprised when she is chosen to manage a new restaurant opening in her home city of San Juan. She has neither training nor experience to justify her success. But La Cueva del Vampiro has the kind of ambience she adores, for Alana has always had a penchant for the dark side of life. Yet she is also plagued with dreams of dark sensuality, dreams that take on shattering reality when she meets the stunningly alluring, charismatic Sadash.

For Sadash is the man she saw in the shadows so many years before…and Sadash isn’t human…
