Among Diana's many passions, traveling is her favorite. She has visited Europe and South America; however, her favorite place to visit is the American Southwest and her home away from home, New Orleans. Her lifelong love of art history is featured prominently in her books. When not writing, Diana loves discovering museums and libraries in whatever city that she happens to be visiting. In her leisure time she enjoys going to the movies and hanging out with her friends.
Diana Marik has been a long time fan of romance novels, in particular, paranormal romance novels. As a former health care professional and educator, she has taught and cherished classical literature for many years. In her debut novel, she shares her love of the paranormal genre with characters that are compelling, intriguing and downright sexy. Readers will be left craving more adventures. With each book secrets are revealed, but more questions arise that will have fans aching for the next installment in the series.
Diana is currently at work on her latest installment of the Seven Deadly Veils Vampire Series.
Meanwhile, Remare, Valadon’s second, will use all his resources to track down the traitor who tried to have his friend and lord murdered. Once betrayed by the beautiful Vivienna, he has sworn never to let himself love another, yet his feelings for Valadon’s would-be lover, Miranda, are becoming harder to deny. He soon realizes his quarry is in Paris, and enemies long silent will surface once again to threaten what Remare holds most precious. After Miranda nearly died at the hands of his enemies, he has sworn never to endanger her life and will stop at nothing to keep her protected. Even if it means defying the High Lord.
Their search will lead them to Nightworld, home of the Rogue vampires and a confrontation with Stryder, the dangerous leader of the Rogues. Together, Remare and Miranda will enter the dangerous world of underground auctions where only the very rich and powerful procure “lost” works of art. Making their search more difficult is the rising heat between the vampire and the Elemental, whose attraction may turn out to be more lethal than the adversaries they encounter.
has become fascinated with Miranda Crescent, a human woman with powers
only Elementals possess. As his enemies conspire against him, he becomes
drawn to her, but knows any involvement with Miranda will only endanger
her life because within the human population exists the Human Order of
Light, a powerful hate group, who would see the eradication of the vampires.
Miranda Crescent is an authenticator of rare works of art who isn’t
afraid of danger. Her best friend is the Were Queen and her mentor is a
vampire ancient. At first, resistive to Valadon’s charms, she will risk her
life to bring him the information he needs to thwart his enemies.
But Valadon’s second, the sexy and sarcastic Remare, believes
Miranda is a member of the HOL working to destroy his lord. The chemistry
between them quickly escalates as they search for those plotting against Valadon.
Putting aside their distrust of each other, Remare and Miranda work hard to
discover who is trying to murder the high lord. But Remare’s first loyalty is
to his lord. He can’t allow himself to care for someone Valadon has marked
as his own…or can he?
I write Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. I’m told my work has great crossover appeal.
What inspired you to write in this particular genre?Inspiration came from discovering worlds different from ordinary life and I’ve also been a Tolkien fan for as long as I could remember.
Do you have a special formula for creating characters’ names?I base many of my character’s names on Impressionists Artists, but sometimes I change letters in the names just for fun.
