More About the Author
I live on a lake in Northern Vermont with my incredibly fabulous husband. My two children have flown the coop, but the three cats do their best to keep us from being lonely.
In my spare time I quilt and play around with wearable art, and the rest of the time I write write write. Apparently women of a certain age get a rush of creativity, and I'm currently enjoying it. Too many stories to write, not enough hours in the day.

WOW!! Anne Stuart is always SUPER but this one is absolutely a knockout!!!
Annie Sutherland is fast finding out her life was built on nothing but lies. Her father had been murdered. The former head of the CIA hit squad (though she does not know this), left her instructions,that she should seek out his former 'pet' James Mc Kinley...and man she thought she knew, and once even may have been falling in love with.
Only nothing is as it seems, and nothing was as it seemed. James is holding up on an island, looks like a man haunted by demons. Gone is the conservative bureaucrat she adored, leaving her facing a tortured fugitive - but one that is armed and extremely dangerous. Suddenly, the Texas accent is an Irish brogue, hinting he hold secrets that could mean her life.
Annie and James are thrown together on a cross-country trek, which eventually leads to Ireland and back again to the US, all on the quest to solve the murder of her father . Is James a cherish lover or the man assigned to kill her?
Stuart crafted a knock out of a book that should not be missed.
WISE Readers and Writers Book of the Month January 2000 and Book of the Year 2000
Not so in Moonrise: The heroine is a cluless wimp who does not learn anything from start to end. She is afraid of the hero but wants him, without realizing anything about herself or him throughout the book. The hero loves her but hates her, drawn to her but hates her, wants to protect her but hates her... Its tiresome.
And lastly - the plot is unreasonable, and you end the book still not knowing what went on and why. Leave this one alone and read instead Ruthless.
James McKinley is doing all that he can to keep himself alive. When Annie turns up on his doorstep in Mexico, he tells himself that it would be easier on both of them if he would just kill her. He can't do it though. He watched her grow from a child of seven to a woman of twenty seven, and he is unable to take her life in the many lethal ways he knows how. This infuriates him. He felt he lost his soul so long ago, and that this blond haired angel can make him feel anything again fills him with a rage that he embraces.
James and Annie travel the globe to uncover the conspiracy around Win Sutherland's murder. When the murderer was uncovered I was so shocked that I didn't comprehend for about a half a page! The only thing that I think could have been better was the ending. I am curious to see how Stuart would depict her darker characters taking a stab at a normal life, with a normal relationship.
Above all, this was a great book. If you try this and like it, also try Nightfall by Anne Stuart!
Moonrise takes the idea of a "dark" romance to a whole new level. Nightfall was also very dark, but what I appreciated about Nightfall is that the reader is given a look into the relationship so that despite the "darkness" of the plot, you could believe in the couple. Not quite so with this book.
James McKinley is one tough guy! He is a killer, admittedly, and is cold as ice. He agrees to help Annie Sutherland get to the bottom of her father's murder. The suspense in this novel is it's greatest strength, and I dare you to figure out what's really going on before finally Stewart just outright tells you!
Although it is implied, I NEVER believed that Annie could love this man or that he loved her. This was devastating for me as I am a "romance is my number one priority" type of girl. I NEED to believe that a couple, regardless of how dysfunctional, truly care for one another. All that I believed was that James could kill Annie at any point of the book, and that Annie was stupid to be putting her life into this "loose cannon's" hands.
This is supposedly Stuart's greatest work, but it doesn't hold a candle to Nightfall IMHO!

I love Anne Stuart books! I can't get enough of them! This one, however, was painful to get through. The plot was good but it was pages and pages and PAGES of the same dialogue. Read morePublished 1 month ago by SCQ

Troubling book, I'm not sure what genre this really is. Soft core snuff porn maybe? The characters are unlikeable, their motivation is unbelievable, and unless you're truly... Read morePublished 14 months ago by O. Knutson
