Copper Lake

by Ann Swann


GENRE:  Romantic Suspense



They call him the Killer Cartographer because he carves the map coordinates of each victim on the femur of the one before. Then he tattoos the information on his skin. Can Detective Kendra Dean bring him in, or will she become his next tattoo?




Without a sound, Woody trailed the tips of his fingers down the middle of her back from the base of her skull to her waist. It was the sort of careful caress she might have expected. “Thanks for the dance,” he whispered.

She looked down at the navy and maroon swirls of the hallway carpet. Then she turned, and he’d been so close she couldn’t draw a breath.

He opened his arms, and she leaned into his embrace, but this time she didn’t rest her temple against his chin.

She looked into his guileless blue eyes, and then she stood on tiptoe and buried her hands in his thick, wavy, hair. She pressed her lips to his and whispered against his mouth, “This will have to be the end of it.”

Woody inhaled her words and crushed her to him as if he would never let her go.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:


Ann Swann was born in the small West Texas town of Lamesa. She grew up much like Stevie-girl in The Phantom Pilot series, though she never got up the nerve to enter the haunted house. Ann has done everything from answering 911 Emergency calls to teaching elementary school. She lives in Texas with her husband, Dude, one rescue dog, two rescue cats, and a part-time box turtle named Piggy. When she’s not writing, Ann is reading. Her to-be-read list has grown so large it has taken on a life of its own. She calls it Herman.
