Driven by Fire
by Anne Stuart
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Pro bono lawyer Jenny Parker is the only true innocent in her family. The daughter of a New Orleans crime lord, she’s tried for years to make her own way, but family ties always manage to pull her back in line. When her youngest brother gets involved in human trafficking, Jenny wants to believe him innocent and tries to protect him, even though it means covering for his crimes.
Matthew Ryder knows Jenny is hiding something, and he couldn’t care less about her motives. As a member of the Committee, a covert anticrime agency, he’s dealt with the worst the world has to offer. To him, Jenny is just another criminal. But when she asks for help, things turn dangerous quickly, and though he can’t trust her, he can’t turn her away.
Now, Jenny and Ryder must head to South America to stop the trafficking ring. To find the truth, they’ll have to survive untamed jungles, hostile rebels, crushing betrayals, and—perhaps most dangerous—the fire of their undeniable attraction.

I’ve been writing since the dawn of time. A child prodigy, I made my first professional sale to Jack and Jill Magazine at the age of 7, for which I received $25 (admittedly my father worked for the publisher). Since then I’ve written gothics, regencies, romantic suspense, historical romance, series romance — anything with sex and violence, love and redemption. I misbehave frequently, but somehow have managed to amass lots of glittering prizes, like NYT, PW and USA Today bestseller status, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romance Writers of America, and a decent smattering of Romantic times and RITA awards.
I live on a lake in Northern Vermont with my incredibly fabulous husband. My two children have flown the coop, but the three cats do their best to keep us from being lonely.
In my spare time I quilt and play around with wearable art, and the rest of the time I write write write. Apparently women of a certain age get a rush of creativity, and I’m currently enjoying it. Too many stories to write, not enough hours in the day.
There aren’t many authors who can write a never-do-well hero as good as Anne Stuart.
Matthew Ryder is arrogant, stubborn, and too handsome to be ignored. He is a member of the infamous Committee, a covert operative filled with alpha heroes and heroines who work to rid the world of evil.
He knows Jenny Parker is hiding something and will do whatever it takes to stop the child slavery ring that his crew uncovered.
Jenny is a member of a family of corruption but chooses to make her life count for something good. She knows her little brother can’t possibly be involved in a slavery ring and will do whatever it takes to clear his name.
Let the fireworks begin!
He gripped her tighter and growled in her ear: “If you put up a fuss I’ll drop you and let you roll down two flights of stairs. And while I might find the sight amusing and potentially interesting, I don’t think you’d enjoy it.”
“So instead we get to reenact Gone with the Wind?”
