About The Author

Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly at golf when she’s not crafting novels. She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and does them frequently and with abandon. She lives in coastal North Carolina and uses that region as the setting for many of her stories.

Adrienne's first book is a contemporary romance, called Seeking Solace

Synopsis

Sometimes to take a step in the right direction you have to run away.
Sarah Collier’s life has always been scripted for her, according to the expectations of her domineering, socially-connected Connecticut family.  Everything always went as planned…until the unthinkable happened moments before walking down the aisle.  On a whim, she does the first thing that comes to mind—she takes off on her honeymoon, alone.   However, Sarah has never acted on spontaneity, so the impromptu trip may not be what Sarah thinks it will.  
The quaint and rustic harbor village of North Berwick on Scotland’s East Lothian coast is typically devoid of tourists in the winter.  So when an auburn-haired stranger who wanders into his pub on a cold, Sunday evening,   Bretton Keith, self-assured and flirtatious pub owner that he is, sees the opportunity for another brief and fun fling to break up the monotony of a village winter.

As Bretton comes to know the sad and beautiful Sarah, he finds it increasingly difficult to uphold his credo of never becoming attached.  Can he forget the mistakes of the past and learn to trust another with his heart? All the while, Sarah is experiencing a new-found freedom to dare think of her life in a different way, to truly consider what it is that she wants and what it is that will make her happy.  Will Sarah be brave enough to risk it on a man who was so hurt by another that he swore off ever falling in love again, or will the demands of her family prove too big an obstacle to overcome?   







Her second book is a paranormal romance, called Revolution
(Click Cover To Purchase)

Synopsis
A woman on the run. A man devastated by a past marked with tragedy. Neither would ever have imagined their lives would change because of a war fought over two centuries ago.
Nate Emerson has spent the last few years wrapped in grief. It’s a weary burden, but one he has inevitably come to accept. Unexpectedly, Nate finds the walls he built around himself tested when confronted with a stranger at his family’s colonial homestead. Could she be the one to show him how to finally let go of the past?
Meg Grey finds herself at loose ends in the historical town of Yorktown, Virginia. Fleeing from a life she’d sooner forget, she simply wants to remain invisible. Spending a few weeks in an old farmhouse on the boundary of a Revolutionary War battlefield seems like the best way to accomplish that, yet Meg soon discovers that she isn’t alone in the old, neglected home. Sights and sounds that can’t be explained. Shadows and apparitions.
Will the spirits of revolution draw two people together, or will forces beyond their control keep them each imprisoned with their own personal demons?
