Sharon K. Garner (River of Dreams) returns with a new adventure romance! A double cross that keeps on giving, a Brazilian ex-mercenary who wants to live in peace, a children's book illustrator who's thrust into a danger she doesn't understand with a man she doesn't want to love. Sanctuary is set in the vast agricultural, cerrados area of Brazil. Emily Noble wants to find her missing brother -- a man who has been living a hidden life as a mercenary. The trail leads her straight to Christovao Santos, the man who recruited her brother. All three have been targeted for death. All three have secrets. And the killer knows them all.
Sharon K. Garner, a proofreader/copyeditor and a former library cataloguer, has published several novels and numerous short stories for adults and children. She lives near a lake in Pennsylvania with her EMT/welder husband, who has learned not to twitch when asked such questions as, "How do you disable a big piece of equipment?" or "How long does it take to bleed to death?" Two cats, one that leads her life like a television commercial for cat food, the other like life is going to sneak up and bite her, complete the household. In her spare time the author reads English mysteries and does walk aerobics, both on a regular basis. She's also been known to work as a temp to support her writing habit.

I love to write about warm, exotic places. I often get scene and plot ideas from researching my settings, but my books often come to me via an opening line, usually dialogue.
Emily Tally Noble's name came to me in a dream. Her first line, the opening line of Sanctuary, is, "Please don't make me shoot you."
The first line of River of Dreams is, "If that plane won't fly, amigo, you'd better be able to walk on water." The first line of Chapter One of The Spaniard's Cross is, "Bloody hell!"
Researching the cerrados of Brazil was thrilling. It truly is a frontier, with vast farms, in the tropical highlands of that country. It was a perfect setting for this life and death struggle.
Enjoy the adventure!From the Inside Flap:
Emily Noble's brother has gone missing, and his trail leads straight to trouble in the form of Christovao Santos, a Brazilian ex-mercenary. Thrust into dangers she doesn't understand, Emily finds herself drawn to Christovao--a man who wants to live in peace in the vast agricultural area of Brazil called the cerrados. He doesn't want trouble, let alone love. But Emily's brother shows up and the secrets he and Christovao have been hiding are about to be uncovered just long enough for them to be killed. The man who wants them dead has secrets, too...and he's not about to let them be shared by anyone.
