Author: Ria Dimitra

I was born in Huntsville, Alabama, the youngest of seven children. I've been fascinated by the supernatural from a very young age, and I've had some experiences in my own life that have left no doubt that there's a lot out there we do not and cannot understand.

I self-published my first novel, THE BLOOD WALTZ, in 2000. Ragnell Press published my next two novels, FIEND ANGELICAL (2005) and THE VISCONTI DEVILS (2006).

FIEND ANGELICAL was selected a "Top Pick" by Romantic Times Bookclub and nominated for an award, and THE VISCONTI DEVILS was rated a "Top Pick" by Night Owl Romance and Readers' Favorite.

How far would you go for the one you love? Lisa Klein has been haunted for years by dreams of a lover she could never find in real life. But when one day he turns up at the diner where she works, wearing Victorian clothing and trying to pay for his coffee with a 100-year-old dollar bill, she thinks he’s some sort of nut. An endearing nut, to be sure, and one she finds irresistibly attractive. Is he just a crazy drifter, or is he the real Athanasius Mihajlovic, the unsung genius who claimed to have unlocked the secret to time travel back in 1892 – and then vanished? As Lisa works to uncover the truth to Athan’s story, she finds that it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that love is the greatest discovery of all.

A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

Maggie Pacelli didn't believe in love at first sight. She was about to lose all belief in true love. But that all changed when she met Michael LeClaire, the new curator at the Beinecke Library at Yale. Michael is fascinated with the new tarot deck that Maggie is painting--and he also seems to be fascinated with Maggie. Maggie can't believe how perfect he is for her--or how hard she's falling for him.

A DATE WITH HELL

When Michael shows Maggie the rare 15th century Visconti tarot cards in the Beinecke's archives and reveals to her that The Devil is missing from every one of the surviving decks, Maggie is intrigued. The Devil is the one card she can't decide how to paint. Maggie feels certain that the answer to the riddle lies in Milan.

Unable to dissuade her, Michael accompanies Maggie to Italy on her quest to discover the truth about the missing Visconti Devils. Their search takes them to the Brera, where they meet Luca Arcangeli, a wealthy art collector who may hold the key.

But in Milan at the height of Carnevale, nothing and no one are what they seem--and Maggie will soon find herself at the center of a struggle between the forces of light and darkness that will challenge her beliefs and force her to choose the fate of her soul.

“We share the same blood . . . and the same evil desires.”

Selena D’Agostino needed a vacation. So when she received a mysterious invitation from England to meet long-lost relations at their family castle, it seemed just the ticket.

But nothing could have prepared her for what she would find there. Not only were her newfound relatives not what they seemed . . . it soon became clear that they were not about to let her leave.

And perhaps the most frightening of all was her overwhelming attraction to the seductive, enigmatic Kieran Ramsey, who bore an eerie resemblance to a 400-year-old portrait that hung in the castle . . . a man of dark secrets, with an insatiable thirst for blood and a lust for Selena’s soul that would not be denied.

Originally published in 2000.
