About the author:
Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is a romantic suspense author with a unique point of view. Her adventure novels take place in locales across Europe and the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and extensive time as a global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger.
Ms. Alonso-Sierra's writing career began circa age thirteen with a very juvenile science fiction short story, but the writing bug hit, and she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature teacher (and not necessarily in that order-she likes variety) and holds a Masters in English literature. She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to discover new places to set her novels.
Ms. Alonso-Sierra is currently working on her third novel, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Amber.
The Book of Hours
Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra
For artist Gabriela Martinez, psychopaths do hit twice.
A manuscript, a secret, and only a few hours to live.
When Arnold Wickham, an unscrupulous art dealer, catches a glimpse of Gabriela's new work, The Book of Hours, he is like a man possessed. Now, he will do anything in order to claim it, and nothing, especially not Gabriela, will stand in his way.
Richard Harrison has been gifted with a second chance to protect Gabriela, the woman he loves. In the shadow of this new threat, however, the stakes are now much higher, and there is much more to lose. And if Richard doesn’t stay one step ahead of the danger, their lives, their love, but especially, their future may very well go up in flames.
Set in California and London, The Book of Hours is a story about greed, obsession, family duty, and, especially, deserved second chances.
