Anne Manning

Anne Manning believes she was a Texan in a previous life. Most of her books are set in her beloved Texas, where she has lived with her family since 1999. Her household also includes three persnickety cats and a ferret named Arturo.

Anne was a finalist in 1998 in Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest and saw that novel, Presidential Liaison, published the next year to critical acclaim. Other works by Anne Manning are Rustler's Bride, Ripples (finalist in 2001 for the EPPIE for Best Paranormal Romance), Bloodlines, and The Raven's Lady, which won the 2000 EPPIE for Best Paranormal Romance.

Anne is a member of Romance Writers of America, San Antonio Romance Writers, and EPIC, the Electronically Published Internet Connection, which she has served in many capacities, including as President.

"Romance has to be the best possible world for an optimist. There's always trouble, but there's always a happy ending. And hope for happiness is the greatest gift a writer can bring a reader," Anne says.

A deranged plan to keep them parted even after they are again free to love one another leads to murder and puts the child they all love in danger. Can Colter and Kitty save their son and at last have the life they threw away with a single nightís indiscretion? Or will a dead man succeed in keeping them apart?

Warrior horseman Brandubh mac Dougal vows no other woman will fill the emptiness of his life but the tall, lushly beautiful woman who vanished from his sight as he reached for her. Crossing a millenium, Eibhlin falls into Brandubh's arms. Then she must decide whether to return to her own time or to remain with him, to be his lady.
