When love commands, destiny must obey. Against an epic background and torn between duty and passion, Arria Felix, a Roman senator’s daughter, must choose between Rome’s decadent world and her forbidden
love—Garic, a Frank barbarian noble.

The year is AD 450. The Roman Empire wanes as the Medieval Age awakens. Attila the Hun and his horde conquer their way across Europe into Gaul. Caught between Rome’s tottering empire and Attila’s threat are the Frankish tribes and their ‘Long-Hair’ chiefs, northern pagans in a Roman Christian world, and a people history will call the Merovingians. A young widow, Arria longs for a purpose and a challenge. She is as well versed in politics and diplomacy as any man … but with special skills of her own.

The Emperor Valentinian, determined to gain allies to help stop the Huns, sends a remarkable envoy, a woman, to the Assembly of Warriors in Gaul. Arria will persuade the Franks to stand with Rome against Attila.

When barbarian raiders abduct Arria, the Frank blue-eyed warrior, Garic, rescues her. Alarmed by the instant and passionate attraction she feels, Arria is torn between duty and desire. Her arranged betrothal to the ambitious tribune, Drusus, her secret enlistment by Valentinian as a courier to Attila the Hun, and a mysterious riddle—threaten their love and propel them into adventure, intrigue, and Attila’s camp. Rebels in a falling empire, Arria and Garic must find the strength to defy tradition and possess the love prophesied as their destiny.




A Word from the Author

Author Cynthia Ripley Miller pictureMy connection to the past began with childhood visits to my ancestral home of Tuscany in Italy, but I never thought that my travels as a girl would one day lead me back in time to fifth century Rome and Frank barbarian France.

On the Edge of Sunrise tells an epic story of love in this fascinating, ancient world.

I became intrigued with late ancient Rome and the barbarian groups while teaching history. I discovered that fifth century Rome and France was an era of violent change, rich in drama, and ripe for storytelling. What a perfect setting for conflict, classic themes and an adventurous plot that stemmed from my roots. As a child, I heard stories from my family that pointed to a lineage that traced back into Italian history.

Like my heroine, Arria, seeking her own destiny after the death of her young soldier husband, a sense of purpose, love of history and interest in my roots propelled my writing in this historical and romantic direction, which I cannot fully explain but trusted and followed. Writing the Long-Hair Saga series has been an amazing journey and dream come true.

An intricate scheme to abduct the children of the most powerful politicians on Capitol Hill gets disrupted when Kerry Branson, ex-homicide detective turned private investigator, inadvertently rescues one of the victims on a fog-laden backroad in the Piney Woods of East Texas.

When Kerry discovers the six-year-old boy is the son of a U.S. Senator kidnapped from his Austin home, her call to the FBI is just the beginning of her problems. Pursued by a ruthless band of mercenaries who seem to know her every move, Kerry is forced into an uneasy alliance with the agent assigned to the case, FBI Tracker Ryan Barr.

As the abductions continue, their search for the children will pit Kerry and Ryan against a formidable adversary who uses his wealth and political power to cloak a psychopathic obsession. His manipulation extends deep into the government even to the Office of the President.

A horrific plan slowly emerges—one that has drug cartels and terrorist groups lined up to cash in.




A Word from the Author

Author Anita Dickason pictureHoarding information between law enforcement agencies is nothing new. I decided to put a different spin on the failure to communicate in Going Gone! Children of high-ranking politicians on Capitol Hill have been kidnapped. The intricate scheme behind the kidnappings extends to the White House. The characters are forced to keep the details of the investigation secret. Not knowing who they can trust becomes a delicate balancing act for the Trackers. If they slip, it could mean the death of the children.

Know More

FBI Tracker Cat Morgan has an unusual talent, one she has successfully concealed, even from her fellow agents. That is—until she finds a body with a strange symbol carved on the forehead during a stop in Clinton, Mississippi and crosses paths with the town’s rugged police chief, Kevin Hunter.

Despite his instant attraction to the sexy agent, Kevin is suspicious of her presence at the crime scene and isn’t buying her dubious explanations. He wants her out of the investigation and out of his town.

The discovery of another mutilated body with the same symbol sends Cat back to Clinton, and this time she isn’t leaving. To stop the killer, Cat must find a way to overcome Kevin’s distrust and will face an impossible impasse—truth or lies.

But will either one matter, when the killer fixates on her for his next sacrifice?




A Word from the Author

Author Anita Dickason pictureSentinels of the Night is the debut novel for a new FBI team, Code Name—Trackers. Considered the elite of the elite, each agent has a different ability, a secret that defies logic and reason.

The plot is based on an incident with a serial killer from my law enforcement career. He was convicted on multiple counts of murder, but was a suspect in several others, though it couldn’t be proved. I have never forgotten the dead look in his eyes. It was if nothing was alive, no feeling or emotion. That memory became the basis for the character of the serial killer.

The paranormal ability is drawn from a Native American myth. I came across a woman, Alice C Fletcher (1838-1923). She was an American ethnologist, anthropologist, and social scientist who studied and documented American Indian culture. This was a woman who was ahead of her time in a man’s world. She lived with the Indians and translated the chants used in their ceremonies as well as their stories, and then wrote a book about it. That is where I found my paranormal element.
