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?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Any reader who enjoys a well written, action-packed romance that can steam up the windows will appreciate Lawrence."-The Romance Reader

"Lawrence weaves dazzling, sizzling page-turners."-Word Museum

"Imaginative, stirring, fun, and oh, so, sexy."-Kathleen Nance, author of More than Magic on Virtual Heaven

"With a plot as detailed as treasured tapestry, Ms. Lawrence continues to seduce us into her opulent world of strong, admirable characters and a story that embodies the best of the romance genre."-Romantic Times BookClub Magazine on Lord of the Mist

"Ms. Lawrence is definitely one author to watch as she goes up the spiral staircase to romance heaven."-Belles and Beaux of Romance

"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." —ParaNormalRomance/PNR

Publishers Weekly
When American photographer Rose Early arrives in the English village of Marlton in response to a frantic summons from her sister, Joan, she discovers that Joan has disappeared; Joan's cottage is empty except for a cardboard box with photos intended for a book she was working on for All Saints Church. At the bottom of the box is a horror novel titled Do You Believe in Evil? by V.F. Drummond. On the last page, Joan had written, "I believe." Unnerved and perplexed, Rose tracks down Vic Drummond, which is easy since he's in Marlton closing up his recently deceased Aunt Alice's cottage, but getting answers from him is a little more difficult. It seems his aunt died under mysterious circumstances, along with several other members of All Saints. Now auntie's spirit is trying to warn him of some impending danger by way of ominous, undeletable messages on his computer screen. Rose and Vic quickly become sexually involved and go at it like two people, well, possessed. With its paranormal energy, English ambience and steamy sex scenes, this book won't disappoint fans of Lawrence's previous supernatural romances (Lord of the Mist, etc.). Agent, Carolyn Grayson.
