My latest gift...Haunted Love by Sarafini

My latest gift…

At the start of 2023, I had plans to write, write, write, and be more consistent with this blog. However, it’s been impossible. Between a full-time job, endless travel for leisure and work, being a wife, and simply existing, this was the one thing that always got pushed to the bottom of the list. While all those things I mentioned have kept me away, something much more significant also had my attention. After five years, six edits, and countless days and weeks of burnout, I’m ready to let you guys in on my latest gift.

My debut novel Haunted Love is available now on Amazon Kindle and Paperback.

The book was officially released on April 16. From that time to now, I’ve been working out the kinks as a first-time, self-published author. From start to finish, this process has driven me mad and to the brink, and yet and still has been the most fun, exhilarating, fulfilling thing I’ve ever done. Books have always been my first love, and it took a very long time for me to connect the dots to get to this moment.

I’m super excited about this chapter in my life because it is truly a dream realized. Since the book’s debut two weeks ago, more than 700 pages have been read on Kindle. That’s great news for me since I haven’t announced it anywhere. And it tells me that the story is compelling, interesting, and captivating to my audience.


“The course of true love never did run smooth.” – William Shakespeare

Quincy Mercer has had a chokehold on Sienna Casanova’s heart from the very first day their eyes met. When he abruptly ends things and moves on, it sends Sienna into a tailspin, opening wounds of love, loss, and ghosts. On the outside, she’s a wealthy woman of every man’s dreams. But inside, she bears the burden of loneliness and the ever-present resentment for the men in her life that she’s loved the most.

Years later, she’s recovered. But a one-off trip back home to the Casanova empire in Miami brings haunted affairs from the past that she can no longer ignore. In this tale of sex, drugs, love, and redemption, Sienna’s past and future collide. A father she hates, an unrequited love, and an FBI agent crash into each other, and they all want one thing: Sienna.
