Fall_Red Coat
Don’t miss your opportunity to meet local author, Sutton Bishop! She will be signing and selling her book at the 69th Annual Christmas Gift & Hobby Show, on Thursday, November 8th, from 10:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M., at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, West Pavilion, booth #306.

Guatemala—a country rife with civil unrest, human and narco-trafficking, and looters of antiquity is the perfect backdrop for AFRAID TO FALL—a steamy story of romance, adventure, and suspense.

Needing a break from both her personal and professional life, forensic anthropologist Ariana Antony makes a spur-of-the-moment decision to join a research expedition in Guatemala’s Petén jungle.
3D_book_stack_tablet copy
Haunted by guilt, Dr. Luca Fierro is still healing from a tragic accident. His life revolves around research, teaching, and triathlons.

Until…

Ari and Luca first meet. Their attraction is explosive. It is also off-limits.

Can Ari lower her defenses and let Luca in? Can Luca heal his deep wounds and explore new territory with Ari?

What begins as a scientific adventure turns into a life-and-death struggle for survival, forcing them to explore and confront their demons and desires.

*** For Mature Audiences Only ***

Sutton Bishop enjoys having a foot in both worlds—real and make-believe. She’s been writing stories since she was a little girl, her imagination inspired by the rural meadows and woods of her childhood and her travels and life experiences. She has degrees in forensics and anthropology and a minor in world history. She lives in the Midwest with her husband, their four kids, and a passel of pets.

Afraid to Fall is Sutton’s debut romance.
