Spotlight Sunday: Dani Renè

It’s that time of the week again! Our Spotlight Sunday author this week is  Dani René. So without further adieu let’s dive in. 

About Dani: 

Hey darlings,

I am an indie author and freelance graphic designer. I started focusing on writing in January 2015 and after a few fan fiction stories, I decided to publish Ace of Harts it was my first full length novella. On a daily basis I have a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in my mind. If I am not on Pinterest or Instagram looking for my next muse, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook. So head on over, I love meeting new readers and authors.

When I am in the cave, I am happiest. If you can’t find me sitting behind my trusty MacBook writing about hot alpha males, I am probably drinking coffee at a coffee shop, or wine tasting one of the few hundred wine farms in my home city of Cape Town, in South Africa.

I have an addiction to reading (who doesn’t?), TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream. I am constantly looking for a new book to get lost in and new book boyfriend to fall in love with. My favorite authors include – M Never, K Webster, KL Kreig, Meghan March, and that’s just to name a few!

Much love xo

Now it’s interview time! We asked Dani a few questions about life, writing and a few silly things in between. 

TBBB: Where are you from? 

DR: Cape Town, South Africa

TBBB: What’s your favorite movie quote?

DR: I have two, and they’re from very different movies lol

“I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”

“They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom.”
TBBB: Okay, back to books, what genres do you write?

DR: Contemporary & Erotic Romance and I also busy with a series that’s darker than my first few books.
TBBB: What is your inspiration?

DR: My inspiration comes from everywhere, from life, friends, family, but mainly from my own life. They say you write what you know… And for me that’s very true. I get inspiration from music and movies as well, I’m perceptive to a lot around me. An idea or inspiration can come to me at random times. 
TBBB: What made you write your first book?

DR: The characters were just so damn loud! LOL. I actually started writing fan fiction stories and my first published book was actually my fifth fan fic, people begged me to get it published and I listened. And I guess as they say the rest is history
TBBB: Tell us about your latest book?

DR: Shattered by Love is a second chance romance, we meet the characters in my second book Broken by Desire, and after a people asked for Jayce’s story, I decided to sit down and write it. His first love, Ivy, is the girl that got away. There is a complex twist in the story that broke them up and we meet them when they find each other 5 years later. There are way too many surprise twists in this one to explain any more of the storyline, it’s a book you need to head into blindly. Does it have an HEA? I don’t know, you’ll have to one click to find out 😉 It’s available on pre-order for $0.99 until August 28.

Cerulean eyes pierce me.

A touch that scorches me.

Words that entice me.

With a reputation of the bad boy rock star,

I know he’s bad news.

He’s infuriating, persistent,

and drop dead gorgeous.

The man that has

women’s underwear dropping,

with a click of his fingers,

has his sights set on one woman.


I need to keep my distance.

I need to fight the attraction.


Chestnut eyes lure me.

A smile that tempts me.

Words that bait me. 

The innocence in her eyes is like a drug.

Her feisty personality is a turn on.

The more she pushes, the more I pull.

I don’t back down from a challenge.

To have her in my bed is what I want.

And I always get what I want.


I need to make her mine.

I need to make her see the real me.

For five years, I’ve lived with my secret.

Hurt. Remorse. Sorrow.

A shattered soul.

He was my life. My love. My world.

Until he let me walk away.

Broken hearts, shattered by love.

Secrets. Deception. Lies.

Can shattered love be mended?
