Three years ago, Kara Bianchi’s husband died in the line of duty. The fact that they never started a family is the one thing that she can’t lay to rest. Knowing that she could never love again, Kara decides to conceive a child in a more...non-traditional way. All she needs now is the ideal DNA, and she’s found it in Derek Martinez. Physically he’s a perfect specimen, with dark features so much like her late husband’s. Then Derek suggests changes to the insemination contract, and he threatens to disrupt not only her plan, but Kara’s entire highly structured and ultra-organized world. She would be required to let down her guard and join the living, no matter how vulnerable that would make her. She can do it, she’s a strong woman. It shouldn’t be that hard to resist Derek’s charms. She’d just have to think with her head, and not her heart. When ghosts of Kara’s past surface, Kara isn’t sure that she can trust her heart anyway.
Always a voracious reader, Alanna began writing poetry in grade school, and short stories in high school. She started her first novel, Wyoming Solace, years ago with a legal pad and pencil, often written in the wee hours of the morning when she needed something to do to relax. Before long the story lived on her computer desktop, where it sat patiently awaiting periodic visits from the reluctant writer. After her first release, she moved to romantic suspense and contemporary romance, but keeps the cowboys close to her heart. She loves to write stories to keep a reader guessing, and surprise them in the end. Alanna continues to write love stories, because who doesn’t love a happy ending?
