For fans of Karen Robards and Shiloh Walker, Anise Eden brings us the mesmerizing sequel to her paranormal romantic suspense novel All the Broken Places.
Cate's enemies aren't just surrounding her―they're inside her head.
Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself―aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.
Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life. The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers.
But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal―and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons―or her own life will be at risk.

Author Anise Eden writes The Healing Edge paranormal romantic suspense series for Diversion Books. She spends most of her time tucked away in her writing nook imagining things that aren’t there. On those rare occasions when she emerges from seclusion, Anise may be spotted in coffee shops, staring at her laptop screen and silently moving her lips as she reviews bits of dialogue. Although Anise claims that she’s the one in charge, the characters in her head do sometimes make her laugh out loud at inappropriate moments.

I wouldn’t say that I get ideas in a particular place. Rather, my ideas are triggered by a variety of sources of inspiration—memories, life events, museum exhibits, a phrase I overhear, or a song. Then those initials sparks spin out into story ideas. Some flame out; others, I write.
2. Do you have a dream cast for your book?
Yes, as a matter of fact! I keep my dream casting ideas on Pinterest; you can find them on my book boards at http://pinterest.com/aniseeden. I found photos of Kat Dennings and Joe Manganiello that do a great job of representing how I picture my two main characters, Cate and Ben.
3. How do you handle writer’s block?
If I get stuck somewhere while writing, I usually switch gears and do something completely different for a while. That lets my brain chew on the problem while I keep myself busy. Another strategy is to work on another part of the manuscript, even doing something as simple as proof-reading. Eventually, a solution to the block comes to me and I can get back to writing.
4. What inspired you to write this book?
ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW is one of those books that just flowed out of me all in one piece. It was originally inspired by thinking about how our relationships with loved ones can overcome so many obstacles, in some cases even transcending death.
5. What’s the hardest part of being an author?
For me, being an author means that I am frequently in a state of distraction, pulled away from the present moment by thoughts about my books. This doesn’t bother me at all—in fact, I enjoy it—but it can make other things difficult, like staying tuned in to a conversation or engaging in a complex retail transaction (such as ordering a cup of coffee).
