Alyssa Fontaine's life, loved ones--everything familiar and dear--are brutally taken from her. Taken captive by two men, she endures a horrific nightmare. A new life is forced upon her and even a new name. Just when it appears that no hope is in sight, she is saved by an unlikely twist of fate. Trapped in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains, life will open its arms to her again and she will embrace it. She will find love such as she never knew existed.
Sierra is a heart-wrenching story of the power of the human spirit to survive amidst impossible circumstances and severe losses. It is a story of survival . . . and hope.

Read my outstanding review here!  (Yes, I am tooting my own horn--why not?  The author told me that my review is her favorite review of her book, as of now!  I had better enjoy it while I can!)

  7. I learned upon finding herself with an empty nest, she began to write the stories that were always wandering around in her head, quickly finding that she had a passion for writing, specifically romance. Whether it’s paranormal, contemporary, or suspense—you’ll find all sub-genres of romance in her line-up. :)

  11. All the great reviews make me want to sit down and read the book right this minute! However, it also sounds like a book that requires a huge emotional investment, so I guess I better choose the timing more carefully.

  35. I like that she started writing after becoming a empty-nester. I interact with that age-group a lot through my church work and I hear "I'm too old to do that" a lot. Your life is just getting good at that age! It nice to find examples of women undertaking a new path at that life-stage.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like that her books are clean and she is a grandmother! She looks good for being one :)

    ReplyDelete

  41. This is what I posted on Taylor Dean's website.

    I've heard many good things about your books. I'm hoping that I can be a giveaway winner on one of the blogs where I can read it and write a review about it.
    Your story to becoming an author is great. You certainly do NOT look like you could be a grandmother!!!!
