Book of the Day: Allegra's Shadow
By Dana Sanders Hill
When Mariah St. Cloud becomes a full-fledged member of the walking wounded, she shuts down. She’s learned that men are born heartbreakers, so the biology professor makes work her lover instead. It’s dependable and won’t leave the toilet seat up. But the untimely death of her beautiful, estranged sister Allegra kicks Mariah’s predictable life to the curb, and brings ex-cop Anthony Caine into her everyday existence – intense, protective and far too handsome for her self-imposed celibacy.
Conflict is inevitable. Anthony wants to tumble Mariah’s reserve like the walls of Jericho and keep her safe. Mariah just wants him out of her hair – even as she stands in the deadly shadow of Allegra’s secrets.
About the Author:Dana Sanders Hill is a native New Yorker who moved to North Carolina in 1998, right before Christmas and just before an ice storm hit and she hasn’t moved yet. Thanks to her parents, Dana was an avid reader at a young age. Her mother changed her reading habits when Dana was thirteen by giving her a historical romance novel. In one week, Dana went from reading Nancy Drew to adult fiction and she never looked back. When she was seventeen, she told her father she wanted to write books. He said, “Go ahead.” She’s been writing ever since.
Dana’s first romance novel Twin of Heat was published in 2005. Allegra’s Shadow is her first romantic suspense.
