WHAT THE NIGHT KNOWS...
Millionaire treasure hunter
Harlan McClaren's last adventure had nearly cost him his life. All he wanted now was to be alone, and this distant port---where nobody knew his true identity---seemed the perfect place. But then an innocently seductive young woman stepped aboard his sailboat and asked his help in solving a deadly mystery....
From that first moment, Emma Purcell was entranced by this mysterious stranger with the haunted eyes and the shadowed past. But she couldn't let herself be distracted from her desperate search---even as she ached to give herself to a man who could be the key to the secrets that had brought her here....
Justine Dare Davis sold her first book in 1989, and followed that up with the sale of nineteen novels in less than two years. Her first four books were published in 1991, and she saw all reach the finals for either the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award or the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA Award. She has since won the RITA award four times, along with several Reviewer's Choice awards and three Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. At the 1998 national conference, Justine was inducted into the RWA Hall of Fame, making her one of a very select group of just eight writers. She also had four titles on the Romantic Times "Top 200 of All Time" list. Her sales now total more than 45, and her books have appeared regularly on best seller lists, including the USA Today list. She has been featured in several local newspapers and nationwide by Associated Press, has appeared on CNN, and on two episodes of a cable television series on romance. She has given workshops for many chapters of RWA, has spoken at several regional and international conferences and has taught at the UCLA Writer's Program. She is also featured in North American Romance Writers, an academic reference on the romance genre. Her limited free time is spent on reading, music, photography, watching the eagles near her home, and driving her restored 1967 Corvette Roadster---top down, of course.
