Woohoo!! I recently signed with Harlequin Heartwarming for six more Butterfly Books. This will bring the small-town series to a close, feature some new faces, and also give a few familiar faces (ahem, Mayor Gil Hamilton) their happily ever afters! No release dates yet, but stay tuned!

GONE IN THE NIGHT is a Daphne Du Maurier Finalist

 

Thank you to the Kiss of Death chapter of RWA. GONE IN THE NIGHT was named a 2018 finalist in the DAPHNE DU MAURIER AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN MYSTERY/SUSPENSE!

The Tremayne Romances are Getting Revamped!

I’ve recently regained the rights to my Tremayne Family Romances and will soon be re-publishing them with brand new covers, titles, and prices!  This family-centric trilogy (so far) has light romantic suspense elements (mystery and loads of excitement!) and will now be called THE NEMESIS FILES. As most of you know, these stories are very close to my heart. Book one, NEMESIS IN THE NIGHT, was the first book I ever finished and submitted to publishers (a loooooong time ago). Looking forward to getting them back in front of readers. More information soon!

5-Stars from LaSReviews for GONE IN THE NIGHT!

Readers and reviewers are falling head over heels for Allie’s story and I couldn’t be more thrilled! TY to Long and Short Reviews for their lovely 5-star review of GONE IN THE NIGHT.  

“”Suspense that was thrilling! Romance that was passionate!”

Read the full review here.  🙂

GONE IN THE NIGHT receives 5-Star Top Pick Review from THE ROMANCE REVIEWS

Allie’s book is a hit with early readers! Thank you to Avonna at The Romance Reviews for the 5-Star, Top Pick! <3

 

“Allie projects a calm, even cold, analytical exterior that hides her fear and yet she can physically fight like a SEAL. Max is a ball of anger since what happened to make him leave firefighting. Yet the two of them find a way to get through to each other and the banter is light, fun and sexy, even in their stressful situation. I loved these two together, the friendship of all women carried throughout all three books and the fast-paced plots.  I highly recommend this trilogy! I will be looking for more Anna J. Stewart romantic suspense books in the future.”

More Honor Bound Books Coming Your Way!

I’m thrilled to announce I’ve sold an additional three books in the Honor Bound series to Harlequin Romantic Suspense. I won’t share whose stories they are…yet. You’ll have to read Allie’s story in October first.  🙂  I don’t have release dates, but expect them to start hitting shelves in late 2018 (fingers crossed!).

GONE IN THE NIGHT has its cover!

So honored that Harlequin has such faith in Allie’s story that they’re trying something new with their Romantic Suspense covers! GONE IN THE NIGHT is the first in that line with a heroine only image! Woohoo! While this isn’t exactly the image I have of Allie in my mind, talk about “girl power”. Whoop! 

This book, that will finally reveal Chloe Evans’s killer, will be on sale October 1st. Pre-order your copy from the book page, here.

REUNITED WITH THE P.I. Earns 4.5 Starred Top Pick Rating from Night Owl Reviews!

Thank you to Night Owl Reviews for this amazing 4.5 Star Top Pick review of REUNITED WITH THE P.I.!

I’m thrilled Vince and Simone are striking a chord with readers. <3 

 

 

“The story is multi-layered, with shady politicians, an emotional backstory involving Vince’s brother, and a personal loss that spurred Simone into putting her career over her marriage. 

The plot is intelligent and the story is fast paced with plenty of twists and action. The romantic side worked just the way I like it, with plenty of buildup before the fireworks explode.”
