More About the Author

I've been writing since the dawn of time. A child prodigy, I made my first professional sale to Jack and Jill Magazine at the age of 7, for which I received $25 (admittedly my father worked for the publisher). Since then I've written gothics, regencies, romantic suspense, historical romance, series romance -- anything with sex and violence, love and redemption. I misbehave frequently, but somehow have managed to amass lots of glittering prizes, like NYT, PW and USA Today bestseller status, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romance Writers of America, and a decent smattering of Romantic times and RITA awards.
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.

Of all the books historical and contemporary I really love and Keep, this is MY FAVOURITE! I have it in a well used paperback, but was delighted to find it in hardback.
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.

A master of the psychosis that rules the human mind, Stuart puts a fresh twist on the darker side of romance. Suspicion, murder and mayhem are interwoven with a strong sexual attraction between the two characters. Who to trust and who to love never become quite clear until the end. A very good novel from a writer who never disappoints.

Ann Stuart's writing is not for everyone, but I usually find her books riveting and a welcome change in romantic reading. The heroes are rough and cruel and the sex scenes (lots of them) are not tender and warm, which is ok as long as there is growth and change in the relationships and the heroes themselves.
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.

Who killed Annie's father, and why,is the question to be answered by this very unique novel. Is James Annie's savior, or her killer? Even though you think you know the answers, the story pulls you in, and doesn't let go until the very last word. Anne Stuart's Moonrise does seduce the reader as well as the protagonists.

Annie Sutherland wants answers. After discovering her father's body at the bottom of the stairs with a broken neck, she is horrified to discover that he has been murdered. Until he was gone, she didn't realize that her father molded her into exactly what he wanted his only daughter to be, docile, elegant, and ladylike. He even went so far as to hand pick and train a husband for her. Even after realizing how much she was manipulated, Annie wants to find who killed the man she had loved forever. So she goes to the only person that she thinks she can trust, the man that her father loved like a son.
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!

So here it is.....this is the third book I've read by Anne Stuart. I appreciate her willingness to go places and do things with her characters that many authors don't have the courage or talent to do. I've read A Rose at Midnight where the heroine was the "dark" character, and I've read Nightfall which might be the most memorable and haunting book that I've ever read.

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!
