The House on the Shore Empty
PostSubject: The House on the Shore   The House on the Shore EmptyFri Feb 13, 2009 8:16 am

When Anna MacDonald leaves Edinburgh to find peace in the Scottish Highlands, she gets a twofold surprise: a lost sailor teaches her to love again…while a mysterious stranger has plans to kill her.

Passed over for promotion by her boss—and boyfriend, Anna walks off the job in anger. But being reactionary has its price. Now she can no longer afford the rent on her Edinburgh apartment. So she retreats to the only place she has ever felt happy – her grandmother's croft on the edge of a Highland loch. With no phone or neighbours, and only two border collies for company, Anna sets out to finally achieve her lifelong dream; to write—and sell—the novel that has burned within her for years.

Luke Tallantyre, a renowned Cape Cod artist, has sailed across the Atlantic to escape an artistic dry spell—and come to terms with his dangerous past. When his yacht develops a problem he drops anchor in Loch Hourn. He rows ashore, and knocking on the door of the croft, asks to use the telephone, but the reception he receives is less than welcoming – in fact it's downright frosty.

Anna resents the cranky American’s intrusion to her seemingly idyllic life. Luke thinks she’s an ill-mannered hermit. But an unseen assassin is after one of them. So they unwillingly join forces and embark on an adventure neither ever imagined…including a chance at true love.

Abe,

I'm sat here with a big grin on my face! I really should be working on the next book, (deadlines to meet), but I can't concentrate. I can't wait till my author copies arrive - then I'll carck open a bottle of bubbly!

Congrats and good luck. Abe and I agree about the story line and cover. And you and I agree about how hard it is to concentrate while waiting for first author's copies to arrive.

Jenny, Malcolm,
I'm waiting for my author copies to arrive too. Can't wait to get my hands on them, feel the cover, flip the pages, breathe a sigh of relief and get that feeling of satisfaction.

Thanks Dick.

Shelagh, I've already opened a bottle of bubbly.... one glass and I'm intoxicated! You know how much your good wishes mean to me.
