A brilliant neurosurgeon who saves lives. A priest who saves souls.

A detective who seeks justice. True love changes everything.

Five-year-old Kiara Mitchel started forming a spiritual bond the day her adoptive brother, who was a mere eight years old, entered her life. She became a brilliant neurosurgeon while he became Father Eldar, a Catholic priest. He witnessed Kiara lose a critical patient—the wife of Declan Remington, a hand surgeon—which caused her endless pain, guilt, and isolation. Eldar comforted her through her grief until the death of an abused child paved the way for her to reconcile with Remington, and a simple admission brought forgiveness and an enchanting romance. The abused child tragedy brought Adrian Savage, a handsome detective, into Kiara’s life.

A new friendship developed, but life-threatening challenges compromised Kiara’s day-to-day existence. Honor and ethics led to miscommunications that resulted in confusion and hurt, followed by extreme and intense expectations. She needed all her strength and faith in her abilities when she was commissioned to perform her duties in a far-off and dangerous land, putting Kiara’s renowned talents and safety to the ultimate test. But her determination made her succeed. Kiara was determined to get the upper hand.

A classically trained pianist, Stella von Seidel changed her career at a fairly early stage to journalism and has spent a major part of her life writing reviews, biographies and profiles for a large broadcasting corporation. She has written a recipe book which has not been published as yet but the recipes, especially those mentioned specifically in the book, are available on her website, She has always had a lifelong desire to write fiction books of an imaginative and creative nature, where she uses her experience in gourmet cooking to take the reader on a delightful culinary journey at various stages in the adventure of the novel. She also uses her knowledge of classical music to refer to specific items of classical music.

Stella completed her first novel, Fire and Silk, a contemporary romantic thriller, in February 2021, and her second novel, Beyond the Wild, which takes place partly in the Congo rainforest, was published in April 2021. This, The Rite of Sin, is her third novel. She hopes that you, the reader, will enjoy her originality and creativity in this and her earlier novels that all fall within the genre of romantic thriller. She is currently writing her fourth novel, which will be entitled The Temptation Game.
