Annie Hess knew that the roiling clouds overhead had nothing to do with the storm that had already arrived. First the secret daughter she'd turned over to her brother to raise showed up, looking for answers. Then her brother sent Logan Drake, who'd scorned her youthful advances, to retrieve the girl! As Logan provided Annie shelter from the fierce winds raging outside, this former wild child saw how hollow her seemingly perfect life was. But when her secret came out, could the hard choices Annie and Logan had once made for love now lead them to everlasting happiness?
About the Author
"I fell in love with the hero, Jefferson Clay, when I was writing Stay...," Allison says. And readers fell in love too. Romantic Times heralded her first novel with their "Top Pick of the Month," awarding it with a 41/2-star rating (out of five), calling it a "love story packed with emotion from gifted new storyteller Allison Leigh."
Stay... received nominations for Romantic Times Best Books of 1998 in two categories: Best Special Edition, and Best First Series Romance. Allison was even further honored and delighted to learn that Stay... was a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist for Best First Book.
Since then, there have been more releases from Silhouette Special Edition, all equally well received by her readers and consistently appearing in both the Golden Quill Award of Excellence and the Holt Medallion. Her sixth book, Married to a Stranger, will be released in July 2000, and another book follows in December.
Born in Southern California, Allison has lived in several different states. She has been, at one time or another, a cosmetologist, a computer programmer, and a secretary. She has recently begun writing full-time after spending nearly a decade as an administrative assistant for a busy neighborhood church, and currently makes her home in Arizona with her family. She loves to hear from her readers. Please visit her website above or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via snail mail P.O. Box 40772, Mesa, AZ 85274-0772, USA.
