Safe Surrender

“Sometimes all it takes is love…to heal the scars on the soul.”

Kamilla’s life has been filled with pain, heartache, and loneliness for as long as she can remember. After losing her mother to a cruel twist of fate, she was placed into the cold clutches of the foster system only to be saved by a whole new kind of nightmare. Ever since she was fifteen, Kamilla had known only Rhett. She knew his quirks, his anger, his impatience, and even the agony of his quick fist. There was no anguish the world had neglected to lay upon her innocent soul – no pain she wasn’t strong enough to shoulder, until Rhett crossed a line that cannot be uncrossed.

Desperate to find peace, safety, and security, Kami runs away. Driving deep into the Alberta Rocky Mountains, she finds sanctuary in not only the Donnelley Ranch…but in Kyle Donnelley.

As a beautiful friendship blooms between Kami and Kyle, Kami finds herself surrendering to all that he is. The strength in his kindness heals her. The truth in his declaration gives her something pure to believe in. The patience he employs proves to her she can trust in goodness once again. As Kyle teaches Kami every day that the world holds not only shadows and pain, but light and caresses, she finds herself surrendering her heart to him in a surrender the like she’s never before known. A safe surrender.

About Alannah
I live in Alberta, Canada, where the weather is forever changing (without warning). I am engaged to be married in August 2015 to my high school sweetheart and love of my life. There are no children in my life as of right now, but we do have a handful of rambunctious cats (four) and a testy, rescued Shepard/Husky, who take up a lot of my time.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve adored the written word. English was always my favorite class and that may be biased because I can’t count to save my life, so math was a horror! I remember the very first novel I ever read, Shocking Pink by Erica Spindler. It was the most interesting of the covers on my mom’s bookshelf (probably because it was pink) and I was way too young to be reading that novel. But I fell in love. From there, I read almost everything from V.C. Andrews.

My writing started out as poetry, which then evolved to songs, and later into novels. I was never one for the short stories as I found it too difficult to pack everything I imagined into something so small. I now have fourteen novels published independently. I write both novels for young adults and novels for adults – all romance.

Despite my favorite younger reading material, I now adore writing and reading all things romance.
