Author Remona G. Tanner draws from William Shakespeare’s famous tragedies in her debut novel of love, obsession and greed, “Diamond Infatuated” (published by AuthorHouse).
“I attempted to capture the depletion of a hopeless soul,” writes Tanner, “the kind of depletion one would feel if they lost the only person they’ve ever loved. If the reader looks deep enough in the text of ‘Diamond Infatuated’ they will find the fondness of Shakespeare’s work - pure unadulterated affection and emotion.”
The day Malcolm met LaSydia LaVan was the day he truly began to live. She occupied his state of being from the moment he woke up in the morning until he closed his eyes and dreamed of her. Beautiful inside and out, LaSydia earned the nickname “the Diamond.”
Malcolm, however, was not the only one who coveted LaSydia - Lance wants to keep LaSydia all to himself. As love blooms between Malcolm and LaSydia, Lance grows more unstable. A harmless romance turns deadly when passion collides with obsession in a riveting climax that will leave readers breathless.
An excerpt from “Diamond Infatuated”:
“It was always you, the author of my beginning and my end. Did my heart ever belong to me? It was you that hungered for the soul of me, who had an appetite for something beyond my flesh. How is it possible that we can look at one another and hear each other without speaking? How is it that I felt you years before I knew you? It was always you.”
