Ann Hinnenkamp - Dyad Quest
by Ann Hinnenkamp
Aiden Rawlings has had centuries to perfect the art of staying unconnected. For over four hundred years, he’s served as human partner to one of the immortal Dyads, protecting mankind from their worst enemy—themselves. But all his carefully built emotional walls start to crumble when he finds Jude Kapfer dying from gunshot wounds and asks the Dyads to heal her. They agree on one condition, Aiden must protect Jude and discover who is behind the attempt on her life. He’s only got one problem with that—how can he protect her if he can’t take his eyes off her?
Jude is having a bad week. First, a masked madman shoots her, then, two insanely sexy men show up and heal her and she discovers humans are not alone on the planet. Now, in order to save her life, she must team up with Aiden and allow herself to be drawn deeper in to the mysterious, hidden world of the Dyads. Maybe she should take her chances with the masked gunman. At least he’s human.
Ann started writing at a young age, convinced she was staring in a movie that needed a better script. Decades later, her love for all things paranormal led her to write the Dyad books.
Her plan had been to accept aging with the same effortless grace as any movie star with the last name of Hepburn, but now that her forehead is sliding down around her nose, and her neck attracts every rooster in the yard, she’s given up on grace and put her faith in a good moisturizer and turtle neck sweaters
Besides writing, she freelances as an actor and director in Minneapolis where she’s played everything from Eleanor of Aquitaine, to the third extra on the right with the gap in her front teeth.
Like many actors, she never quit her day job. Her years in the courier business have taught her a few valuable lessons: When designing a floor plan, never put your own office across from the bathrooms. It’s impossible to pick up a monkey at the airport, look him in the eye, and then deliver him to a testing lab. And transporting caskets, even when they’re empty, is just plain scary.
