About this author

Anna Zaires fell in love with books at the age of five, when her grandmother taught her to read. She wrote her first story shortly thereafter. Since then, she has always lived partially in a fantasy world where the only limits were those of her imagination. Currently residing in Florida, Anna is happily married to Dima Zales (a science fiction and fantasy author) and closely collaborates with him on all their works.

After graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in Economics, Anna spent eight years on Wall Street analyzing stocks and writing research reports. In 2013, she became a full-time author, pursuing her lifelong dream of writing romance novels.

Dima Zales is the love of her life and a huge inspiration in all aspects of

“You don’t know?” he whispered harshly. “You truly don’t know that you mean everything to me?”
Hardly daring to believe her ears, Mia pushed at his chest to put a little distance between them so she could look up at his face. “I do?”
“Of course, you do.” His gaze burned into her with an intensity she had never seen before. “How could you doubt it?”
“Are . . . are you saying you love me?” she asked tremulously, afraid to even voice such a possibility. What if he said no? What if she’d misunderstood him, and he would now laugh at her silliness? Her chest tightened in anxious anticipation.
“Mia, I love you more than life itself,” he said, his voice rough with emotion. “If anything happened to you . . . If you were gone, I would not want to go on living. Do you understand me?”
Anna Zaires, Close Obsession

“From the moment I saw you, I knew that I wanted you - more than anyone I've ever wanted in a very long time. And I grew to care about you, even though I knew it was foolish. With time, I hoped that you would feel the same way about me, that if I showed you how good it could be between us, you would realize what you were doing, the mistake that you were making. And you were close, I know...”

“. . . the romantic teenager buried deep inside her was weeping at the perversion of her love story. There was no hero in her romance, and the villain made her feel things that she had never imagined she could experience.”

“Do you want to know why men name their penis? So the most important decisions in their life aren't made by a stranger.”
Linda Howard, After the Night

“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”
Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

“I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style,park your own car out front. My imagination has always topped anything a movie could come up with. Case in point, those darned Harry Potter movies. That was so not what that part-Veela-chick, Fleur Delacour, looked like.”
Karen Marie Moning, Darkfever

Anna Zaires I'm crazy about the Fever series! I've read all of Moning's books :).

message 2: by Anna

Anna Zaires I definitely read Scarlett and loved it! There were also some prequels, but those were pretty crappy and not that memorable (as in 20 years later, I've almost forgotten them). Margaret Mitchell is the best, though :).

Kellie is a bookwhoreasaurus Hey thanks for the friend request!

Yes my Gone with the Wind copy is still the original myy grandma bought for me.. It has fallen apart and pages are missing but I will never get rid of it!

Did you read the 2nd one? Scarlett? I know it's not by Margaret Mitchell but it still made me happy knowing that they had a HEA afterall.. but yeah nowhere near as the first!
