Being trapped with a psychopath.

Have you ever been in the clutch of a psychopath?

“Over the course of our lives, we all experience all sorts of relationships. Some are of the platonic or familial variety, while others are decidedly more romantic.

And in these romantic relationships, there are bound to be many ups and downs. Some have more downs than anything that ultimately lead to the demise of the relationship, but what happens when these downs are more than just that?

When they are actually emotionally detrimental to someone in the relationship and it is revealed that it is an abusive relationship they have found themselves in, that is when the person suffering begins to question everything while feeling trapped.

This is what is explored in M.L. Stark’s novel Burning Desire: The Psychopath And The Girl In Black Prada Shoes Part 1.” –Pacific Book Review – Reviewed by: Aly Avina

America Tonight Show

Kate Delaney interviews author M. L. Stark

To begin with, the interview is a part of an important experience. First to expand my visibility as an author. Then to make my message stand out from the media clutter. As a result, it’s therefore a great opportunity for me to get in front of my target audience. Mostly to get me heard. Eventually, also to get me remembered. Following also to get the books out on the market. In fact, for other victims, family, friends or even your partner, for them to grasp abusive behaviour. I want others to read the important message. After all, it’s truly difficult to get out of an abusive relationship––but indeed not impossible.

Kate Delaney is a Speaker, Syndicated Talk Show Host. She is the Author of Forbes Book: Deal Your Own Destiny and 2020 Communicator Award winner for Excellence from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.

April 2021 I’ve the first conversation with Kate. First she conducted a preliminary interview with me for approx. 20-25 minutes. Then Kate summarises she has done interviews repeatedly with 16,000 people during her twenty-years in radio and television. She broadcast from all over the United States and the world. However, I was nervous as a wreck. I told her with a shaking voice. Therefore, she told me: “Do not worry. Everything will be fine.” Immediately, I fully trusted her.


Kate was amazing. I felt immediately at ‘home’ with her. In other words, I felt safe and calm while talking to her. Her high energy, interactive and entertaining way of talking to me was awesome. Kate’s experience moved me beyond any existing thinking and expectations. However, it was an important stage, going on air to discuss and promote my books. It made me feel I could create alternative possibilities. And do more for my books to capture my reader’s interest.

The interview clearly told me that Kate is a top business speaker. Her unique background and common sense straight forward approach opened the heart and mind of mine. I truly wanted to tell her about my story. Especially of what lay behind BURNING DESIRE & BURNING DESIRE FADES: The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes.

They announced the 11 minute recorded interview on over 210 stations in USA, and appeals to over 26 million people. Just to mention a few:

The best book for your next summer read 2021.

BURNING DESIRE and BURNING DESIRE FADES – The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes.

These books drip of emotional abuse. It’s about uncertainty I’ve lived through under the control of a psychopath. With self-esteem, self-worth, and everything at stake, I want to portray the brutal and painful truth. I want to tell you how it is to be with a psychopath. I want to show you how they think––if they actually think. My experience with the narcissist I was in love with mostly showed that he did not care. Nor worried about me. No empathy, because he was only thinking about himself.

The series presents a story that’s fairly common. It also discusses the strengths of empathetic people that a psychopath lack. I want to bring awareness. I want to shed light on how it is to be a vulnerable woman. About a woman who is trying to find herself through a maze of abuse. There is only one way to deal with a psychopath. Had I known better, I would never get involved with one. But it’s easier said than done! Such people are virtually invisible to their targets. And it’s impossible to see through them before it’s too late.

Good Reads Review

BURNING DESIRE – The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes.

“This book was very hard for me to put down and as I read each page I found myself nodding in a agreement with its text. As it is written by a survivor of emotional abuse, I appreciated it greatly as if the author was right beside me telling me their story and what to look out for should it happen again and the reasons why we fall these certain types of people. This book is the last thing your abuser wants you to read. Quick read and provides practical advice on healing as well as walking you through revelations you may not have gotten to yet. ” –Good Reads Review

“Burning Desires Fade was the epitome of a home-run contemporary read. There were times I wanted to reach into the book, grab Mary (not violently! She has enough violence in her life!), and tell her to wake up! That’s how convincing and spot-on author’s voice is. I give it a 5 out of 5, and I’d recommend it to everyone, an eye-opening read!” –Good Reads Review


Welcome to America Tonight Radio Show.

Kate Delaney interviewing Author M. L. Stark.

In this 11 minute recorded interview I want to put words into why I wrote the books. Furthermore, I wanted to tell what was behind the entire story of being in an abusive relationship. Of course there are also some few people who might not understand why I was writing the stories. However, to me it was great for healing the traumatic experiences I’ve had in my life.

Did you know psychopaths are cunning charmers and master manipulators? It’s to the point where you accept the most extreme behaviours as normal. Over the course of my life, I experienced a different sort of relationships. Some of them were platonic. My marriage was of the familial variety, while few of my relationships were decidedly romantic. That was what I thought about my last relationship. Was it one of the romantic kind?
