From the Editor

As an editor, I occasionally find an author with talent so remarkable that it would be a disservice not to share that talent with readers. Loreth Anne White is such an author.

Her newest novel, A Dark Lure, presents a well-crafted, deeply atmospheric psychological thriller that pushes the boundaries of romance. A heinous villain—a stomach-turning serial killer—returns years later to hunt his lone survivor, a woman who bears the scars of her narrow escape. This chilling tale defies our expectations of a traditional romance novel because first and foremost it’s a survival story.

But it’s a survival story made possible because of love, in many shades. Love for oneself. A parent’s love for a child as well as a child’s love for both a parent present and a parent departed. And the tenuous, unlikely romance between a scarred woman and a differently scarred man who sees her light within, both of them made stronger by a shared understanding of love lost.

While Loreth’s all-too-human characters journey through uncomfortable and deeply troubling psychological terrain, hope shines through the shadows, rippling across the twisty narrative. This masterful writer uses the hunter resolutely stalking its prey not only as a plot element, but also as a metaphor to set the story’s pace, making the reader feel like a fish on the line. It’s a truly talented author who compels her reader to want to be reeled in—slowly, skilfully, exquisitely.

A DARK LURE now available for pre-order!

Now available for pre-order!

Twelve years ago, Sarah Baker was abducted by the Watt Lake Killer and sexually assaulted for months before managing to escape. The killer was caught, but Sarah lost everything: her marriage, her child, and the life she loved.
Struggling with PTSD, Sarah changes her name to Olivia West and finds sanctuary working on Broken Bar Ranch. But as her scars finally begin to heal, a cop involved with her horrific case remains convinced the Watt Lake Killer is still out there. He sets a lure for the murderer, and a fresh body is discovered. Now Olivia must face the impossible—could the butcher be back, this time to finish his job?
As a frigid winter isolates the ranch, only one person can help Olivia: Cole McDonough, a ranch heir, writer, and adventurer who stirs long-dormant feelings in her. But this time, Olivia’s determination to shut out her past may destroy more than her chance at love. It could cost her her life.
