Bella Settarra Biography
In Bella’s world all the heroes are gorgeous hunks and the heroines are always beautiful. Having said that, she firmly believes that ‘handsome is as handsome does’ and that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. (She is also a big fan of clichés as well as alliteration!)
She has been hanging out with her ‘imaginary friends’ for a couple of years now and finds the profession exhilarating and intriguing. Her stories are all Erotic Romances, although they vary considerably in subject-matter.
She loves writing Cowboy Romances and was thrilled when the first book in her 'The Men of Moone Mountain' series, (Etopia Press), entitled 'Ménage on Moone Mountain', received a nomination for the Ménage Romances Fan’s Award 2015 and became an ARe Bestseller, and the third book in this series, 'Ménage on Ryder Ranch' was also nominated for the Erotic Ménages Romances Award 2016 . The fourth book in this series, 'Ménage at the Mode Boutique' is now also available in digital format. She is currently writing another Cowboy series, 'Midnight in Montana' (Siren Publishing), the first of which, 'Dallas at Midnight', is already available.
Her 'Collar and Cuffs' series (Etopia Press) also received an ARe Bestseller Award for 'Waiting on Summer'. This series was set in a BDSM club in Miami, and was a joy to write.
Her writing career began, however, in the fantasy/myth genre, with her first series 'Sirens and Sailors' (Siren Publishing). Although this was a series of six novels, it actually started out as a short story! This was a delight to write and was proof positive that her High School Classical Studies lessons weren’t entirely wasted!
She has also had a couple of short stories published in 'Men for Hire' and 'Men for Hire 2' (Luminosity Publishing) and even had some rather raunchy poems included in 'Coming Together in Verse', a book which raises money for a not-for-profit animal rescue charity.
Not everyone is perfect – but it’s the character flaws which make them interesting, she believes. As in life, things don’t always run smoothly, but it’s the twists and turns which provide the drive to keep going, even when it just feels like an uphill struggle. Bella is currently fighting her own battle against breast cancer – a battle which she is determined to win – and believes that all women have the right to feel sexy even when they are battle-scarred.
