Overview

Tessa D'Angelo was tougher than she looked. She survived her beloved D.A. dad being linked to a drug scandal, and his unexplained "suicide." But what she couldn't survive was the stalker who wanted to silence her questions. Enter Jack Chaney, a brooding special agent, who spirited Tessa away to a self-defense boot camp. What single woman wouldn't want to be stuck in the wilderness with a paramilitary George Clooney look-alike who could get the job done without breaking a sweat?

Meet the Author

Since her first publication in 1987, Nancy Gideon's writing career has been as versatile as the romance genre itself. This Portage, MI, author is a Top Ten Waldenbooks' bestseller for Silhouette, has written an award-winning vampire romance series and has had two original horror screenplays optioned for film. She received a Career Achievement Award for Historical Adventure and K.I.S.S. Hero awards from Romantic Times magazine and received RT nominations for Best North American Historical Romance and Best Historical Book in a Series and won a HOLT Medallion.

Nancy's love of history, gift for storytelling and her background in journalism has helped to keep her focused. She begins her day at 4 a.m. while the rest of the family is still sleeping. Although the pace is often hectic, Nancy enjoys working on diverse projects-- probably because she's a Gemini. One month, it's researching the gritty existence of 1880s Texas Rangers, then it's back to the shadowy netherworlds of vampires and movie serial killers.

As the mother of two almost-independent sons, Nancy spends her "spare time" cheering on her guys' hobbies of radio control airplanes, filmmaking and the restoration of a 1938 Plymouth Coupe. When not taking care of a menagerie of animals, including an aged Australian cattle dog, a lazy cat, a tankful of pampered fish and three African clawed frogs (adopted after a Scouting badge!), she works full-time as a legal assistant, setting depositions and plotting potential thrillers.

Nancy loves to hear from her readers. Visit her at her web site at: tlt.com/authors/ngideon.htm.

Tessa D¿Angelo refuses to accept that her recently deceased father would have been working for drug lords and ultimately committed suicide in spite of the evidence that overwhelming condemns her father. Instead she believes he was to into justice for all so she keeps looking for counter proof. However, her inquiries cause concern for someone who beats her up in her home warning her next time she will be dead..................................... Family friend Stan Kovacs sends Tessa to military trainer Jack ¿Lone Wolf¿ Chaney. He reluctantly takes her on in his hell of a boot camp. As he dishes out all he can and more, she keeps coming back for additional punishment as Tessa refuses to quit her investigation and refuses to ever be a frightened victim again. Though he swore her quest was stupid and he would not get involved in watching her die, Jack falls in love with his student and cannot help but keep her safe which includes from himself though Tessa loves him back................................. WARRIOR WITHOUT A CAUSE is a fabulous romantic suspense tale that stars a wonderful courageous protagonist who is more energetic than the energizer bunny is. Jack is an intriguing dedicated professional who does not believe in lost causes so he cannot comprehend why he is working with Tessa. Adding to the training camp from hell subplot are a fine romance and an especially fun mystery of her father¿s death as suicide seems the only solution to this locked door thriller that grips readers from the moment the intruder assaults Tessa until the final rescue......................
