Book 4 of the Wounded Heroes Series

As a child, Anne always had a very vivid imagination. When most kids on her block were playing with their dolls and army men, Anne and her detective friends were busy solving make believe crimes in the neighborhood. Each day was a new and exciting adventure with danger lurking around every corner. Then in high school, after discovering the wonderful world of romantic suspense, Anne decided to put that imagination to better use. She has since penned more than a dozen novels of Romance, Mayhem & Faith, including the award winning and bestselling FIRE AND ASH (LRC’s 2010 Best Thriller/Suspense winner and TRR’s 2010 Best Inspirational winner), SABOTAGE (recipient of a 5 heart review from The Romance Studio as well as a Sweetheart Award winner), and JOURNEY TO REDEMPTION reissue (top ten in P&E Readers Poll as Best Mystery in 2009). Her heroines are usually strong willed, witty, and often very opinionated…combinations that often lands them in situations where death seems imminent. When she isn't working on her next novel she enjoys spending time with family and friends, and traveling to foreign countries to experience new cultures and adventures. Born and raised in Oklahoma, she now makes her home in Kansas.
