Born and raised in small-town, rural Indiana, I now live in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona with an intimidatingly smart and devastatingly handsome husband, two hyperactively cute and talented sons who will one day be Earth's Overlords (never underestimate the power of Legos), and an emotionally needy, neurotic chocolate lab. I enjoy cooking, traveling, gardening, sewing, quilting, and embroidery but only when I'm in the right mood and seldom concurrently (I'm kind of streaky when it comes to hobbies). I adore reading and writing in the same way that I love breathing and eating, gaining a similar nourishment from each.
For the month of October 2012, I will donate 100% of my royalties from "Nine Dates" to one n ten, an LGBTQ youth support organization.

- From the Shadows
on Oct. 23, 2012
A strong debut novel from Annette Francine!
Set in quaint Key West, Florida, the "shadows" of a dark underworld of drug smuggling threaten the peaceful neighborhood of Kendall Smith. But the piratical man she suspects is responsible is not only undeniably sexy, he's not what he seems.
Francine captures the quirkiness of life in such a distinct setting with lovely descriptions, interwoven with thrilling suspense, complex character development, and riveting sexual tension. The drama culminates in fantastic action scenes, leaving the reader breathless. Hero Bryce is a compelling concoction of tortured soul in a hot bod, while heroine, Kendall, is a believable and sympathetic good girl. Her mistakes show she is flawed, not hypocritical, and her reactions are reasonable, not holier-than-thou.
- Eyes of a Stranger

Emotional powerhouse of a novel!
"Eyes of a Stranger" is a wonderful metaphysical exploration of faith, romance, and destiny. A beautifully inspiring love story is deftly woven into nail-biting suspense, mystery, and cunning plot twists. Francine's second release shows more of her great promise, and proves "From the Shadows" was no fluke.
