Plagued by nightmares, Annette yearns to find her anonymous rescuer -- the man who saved her life from a near deadly assault. Deep inside she is starving for companionship and a mutually respectful relationship. When Mr. Peter Adsley, an abolitionist pastor dealing with his own emotional baggage, agrees to a clandestine meeting, the event appears providential. But self-doubt, deception, and the schemes of a mutual enemy threaten to keep the pair apart. A phantom adversary will stop at nothing to win Annette's dowry for himself, even if it means killing Peter.

"Not only is this a delightful regency romance but it is also suspense filled mystery of the very best kind." Customer review

About Janine Mendenhall

By day, Janine Mendenhall teaches English and is a high school counselor. By night, when normal people are asleep, she writes or watches historical romance movies like Pride and Prejudice and claims that's "research".

At eight, Janine got hooked on "happily ever after" while watching Beauty and the Beast starring George C. Scott. Visit her at, and you'll find the exact scene she held in her mind's eye for thirty-nine years until she recently located it on youtube.

Her husband, Tom, is a computer guru. He and their five tech savvy children attempt to help Janine get connected to the 21st Century when she's on break from writing Never Past Hope* and Perseverance, * the next two books in what she affectionately calls the Triangular Trade Trilogy*.

If you're new in the writing business, there's hope. Janine loves hammering out the details and/or listening when things don't work out. Whether it's flash fiction, which she writes for Splickety Magazines, or romance novels, it's a challenging business which has taken her over ten years to figure out, sort of.
