Title: Stolen Heart
Author: Kristian Daniels
Genre: Coming of age gay fiction, gay fiction, LGBTQ+ fiction
Life is better with you. As a teen, Elliott Denison grapples with life, love and sexuality. His heart had been shattered every time his parents pushed him away. Life had forced him to be strong enough to endure Stanstead’s biggest bully and strong enough to come into his own as an openly gay man. Now he was 26 years old, and a wave of emotion invaded him as though a switch had been sparked in his mind when Chase Harrison unexpectedly crossed his path. Everything Elliott ever wanted growing up was there in front of him. It doesn’t take long for Elliott to enter into Chase’s life. Then the ugly past rears its head. Only this time, the face is a shadowy online stalker and an anonymous hater.
Gritty and raw, this book will grip the reader and not let go. There is something to be said for the resiliency of the human spirit. This tale could provide inspiration for someone to keep going no matter how the cards of life are dealt to them.
A very realistic and gritty story about the hard-knock life some face just because of their personal choices. In a perfect world, there would be an avenger who took care of those who did things to those who couldn't defend themselves. Too bad a person writing fiction couldn't add that aspect to a story.
Elliot is a hero for a streaming service. This story would be wildly popular and could even be made into a hit movie. A tale that is truly ripped out of the world's headlines. If you like your reading edgy and emotive, then this book is for you. A gay coming-of-age story that will appeal to everyone who enjoys this genre. A strong beginning to what could be a memorable series.

Hello everyone, Kristian Daniel is my pen name. I’m a Canadian author and I’ve been writing stories for fun since I was twelve years old but only wrote my first novel just recently.
My stories are inspired by events that I read, lived and heard as well as what the LGBTQ+ community has gone through and is still going through unfortunately. Being part of this great community myself, I’d like through my stories try to demonstrate that LGBTQ people are normal people like everybody else with feelings and has the same needs as everyone in the world. The need to be themselves, loved, be loved and not be ostracized because of who they are and love. I also want to let young people know that it’s okay to love who you want, it’s okay to be who you are and not be who somebody else wants you to be or act.
I write from my heart and feel what every character feels in my stories.
To all my readers, thank you for reading my books and hopefully they have entertained you and took you to the worlds of my characters.
