The Christy Award
Hideaway by Hannah Alexander
Steeple Hill Books Romance
by Hannah Alexander

Hideaway by Hannah Alexander, the launch title for Steeple Hill women’s fiction, has won the 2004 Christy Award® for Best Romance! The second book in the Hideaway series, Safe Haven, will be available in August 2004.
As an E.R. doctor, Cheyenne Allison is used to handling emergencies on a daily basis — until her own sister codes on the trauma bed. Devastated, Cheyenne retreats to an isolated farm in Hideaway, Missouri. But peace and solitude are in short supply in this picturesque Ozarks town. A dangerous vandal has the community terrorized, and Cheyenne finds an unexpected demand for her medical skills.

Mayor Austin Barlow is convinced the culprit resides with Cheyenne's charismatic neighbor across the lake, Dane Gideon, whose ranch for foster boys has given rise to previous violence. Cheyenne distrusts Austin, while Dane inspires her respect, and perhaps something more — although she can't share the faith that sustains him as the violence turns deadly. Then Cheyenne, already pursued by a past nemesis, becomes the vandal's target, and she can only hope that Hideaway will prove her sanctuary…and perhaps a place to call home.

"Genuine humor and an interesting cast of characters keep the story perking along...and there are a few surprises...An enjoyable read." Publishers Weekly

"...Hideaway is gripping and romantic. It may also have crossover appeal to fans of medical suspense and of such authors as Tess Gerritsen."
Library Journal

"...special care is taken to be accurate with medical terminology. The author also writes beautifully about those who struggle with the apparent hypocrisy of Christians...Outstanding real-life dialogue...is naturally sprinkled throughout the book."
Laurie Copeland, Christian Retailing

"High-stakes medical issues, compelling story lines, spiritual depth and

characters so authentic you'd know them if you met them on the street, Hannah Alexander knows how to weave stories that hang on to your heart long after you finish the books. Bravo!"
Susan May Warren, bestselling author of The Deep Haven series.

"Hideaway is absolutely the best book I have read this year.... The strength of emotion packs a powerful punch, and the suspense sits on the edge of a knifepoint.... Each and every secondary character is captivating, and the events are traumatic as the story moves quickly through the pages.... The inspirational qualities are by far the most superior I have read.... Hideaway is an absolute must read for everyone.... I am pleased to award this novel RRT's Perfect 10."
