"An exciting tale of romantic suspense"
Children's book illustrator Emily Noble takes a leave of
absence from her work with Tot Press to travel from
Upstate New York to the cerrados region of central
Brazil. Her half brother international engineer James
King is missing with his only message being to seek former
mercenary Christovao Santos, owner of Abunancia Farm.
However, she becomes his prisoner as he does not trust
her, believing she is an agent out to kill him especially
since his friend James never mentioned a sibling.
Christovao and Emily talk. She explains the attacks on
her brother and he confirms he too has been assaulted. He
also explains that he thinks the incidents and her
vanished brother are linked to a mission that went bad.
As they fall in love, Christovao and Emily face danger
form an unknown assailant who wants him and James dead and
will use her as pawn to accomplish that quest.
Though there has been an abundance of missing relative
stories of late, fans of terse romantic suspense tales
will appreciate this exciting tale. The story line never
slows down from the moment Emily is captured by Christovao
until the final confrontation with the villain. SANCTUARY
is a terrific thriller that will garner the author plenty
of new readers.
