DO YOU BELIEVE IN EVIL?
Rose Early is searching for her missing sister Joan. The only clue she has is a horror novel with her sister's notes in the margins. The author of the book lives only a few minutes away and Rose can't resist seeking him out. She understands why his book affected her sister: the author creates an evil so palpable it shakes even skeptical Rose.
Vic Drummond, the writer, knew Rose's sister, and agrees to help Rose find her; Rose expected him to be reclusive and strange, but she didn't expect him to be quite so . . . attractive. As their search intensifies, Rose finds herself inexorably drawn to Vic, but it seems to Rose that their feelings for each other are being influenced by some outside force-she knows love at first sight doesn't exist.
As they come closer to finding Joan, Rose and Vic journey from the local church to a mysterious sex club whose members dress in demon costumes. The more they learn about what Joan was doing in the days before her disappearance, the more questions they have, until Rose must decide: Does she believe in real evil? And does she believe in real love?
I was born in Gillingham, Kent, England, and then moved to suburban Philadelphia where I still live. I have a great husband who always picks up the slack for me! I also have a handsome son and a beautiful daughter . . . they take after their dad!
I love reading and writing both historical and paranormal romance, but whichever genre I choose, I like to include a puzzle for the reader to solve along with the characters.
I’m super excited that my books are being reissued as ebooks. As someone who is addicted to reading, I’m never without my ebook reader. Here’s what’s happening with my books . . .
My “lords” are coming out now. You can download the books by clicking on their titles.
My “Tolemac Wars” series is coming this summer and fall:
VIRTUAL HEAVEN in August
VIRTUAL DESIRE in September
VIRTUAL WARRIOR in October
I want to thank my many readers who kept in touch with me during my hiatus from publishing while I was undergoing a battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I’m happy to say I feel great and am in remission again. If you ever need a charity to adopt, I highly recommend the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The medicines I received did not exist five years before I was diagnosed! They are making strides against blood disorders every day.
Check me out on Facebook and if you join my mailing list, I’ll let you know as each of my books becomes available for download.
“Ann Lawrence. . . captures the reader on the first page.” —RT Book Reviews
“Ann Lawrence has shown her versatility as a writer,
alternating between a virtual fantasy series and her
medieval historical romances. The common denominator between
the two is the strength of her heroines, and the courage of
her heroes, as they fight seemingly insurmountable odds to
grab the brass ring.”
—Leslie Tramposch, ParaNormalRomance
