February 2008


At the age of ten, Shelby Reed wrote her first romance with Prince Charming — literally! — as the hero, and it's been non-stop story spinning ever since.

Despite the idealistic place from which she embarked, she's partial to writing realistic, flawed, multi-faceted characters, lush emotion, and the ever-possible happy ending.

When not pecking away at the computer keyboard, Shelby enjoys creative projects such as portraiture and decorating, and lives a bucolic life with her own Prince Charming in North Florida.

Ironically, it wasn't a personal fantasy of mine, but I did think it would make a great, edgy idea for a story. My beliefs about sexual freedom have changed so much since, and because of, that novel. It was a milestone in my writing career.(less)

Deadly Lover by Charlee Allden
"Deadly Love by Charlee Allden is a great read for anyone who likes Sci Fi, Mysteries and/or Romance. It is fascinating tale of dangerous relationships with a solid who-done-it at its core that left me guessing until the end of the book. If you’ve..." Read more of this review »
Seraphim by Shelby Reed
"Another great read by Shelby Reed. With lots of romance, sexy and hot scenes and a LOT of action, this romance was just amazing. Very different from her other romance, The Fifth Favor, this one was a little lighter, though it had its dose of angst..." Read more of this review »
Seraphim by Shelby Reed
"I absolutely loved this book I could not put it down. Joachim and Gia's journey to a happily ever after is one of the most emotionally sensual stories I've ever read. This book is about a love that is other worldly, that spans eternity. Shelby Ree..." Read more of this review »

I buy Santino's books the minute the pre-order button appears, and I never regret it. This one, though, might be my favorite so far. It's real, raw, gritty, frustrating, exquisitely erotic, funny, and poignant. I spent all of yesterday reading it cov ...more

“Walking away from you with a broken heart is easier to handle than selling my soul to make love with you. I'm sorry, Adrian. I might be lonely, and naive, and all the things you think about me. But I'm also true to myself, and I won't denigrate my feelings for you. They're much too precious in a world that offers so little love.”
Shelby Reed, The Fifth Favor

“I won't cheapen it by buying what you sell to strangers. I'm not a stranger. I'm the woman who loves you”
Shelby Reed, The Fifth Favor

“I love you, Billie. Give me the chance to make you happy. To show you who I really am – the man who can’t live without you. The man who deserves your heart”
Shelby Reed, The Fifth Favor

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.”
Leo Tolstoy

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

Sometimes, the most beautiful things we find in this life are those we can't hold on to.
Brandon Shire, Summer Symphony

“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”
