What would you do if you were ever in a life threatening situation? Such as a plane crash or a car wreck that left alone and stranded? Would you lie down and die, or would you dig deep, find the courage to pick yourself up and get out of it? What if you were beaten, tied on the back of a horse for hours, then tossed over the side of a cliff, only to find yourself on a narrow ledge with no way down? In Shot Through the Heart, Laramie finds herself in this situation.
When Laramie Porter’s sister-in-law Julie is beaten so badly by her husband she miscarries her baby, Laramie takes her home from the hospital. But just a few minutes after the women arrive home, Julie’s husband, who also happens to be a drug addict and the local police sheriff, shows up at the house on a murderous rampage.
He kills Julie and attempts to murder Laramie. When he doesn’t succeed, he hauls them into the mountains and throws them off a cliff. Julie’s body lands in a pond, but Laramie hits a ledge, where she perches, terrified.
Derrick Garrison is in the mountains moving his cattle when his dog finds Julie’s body in the pond. Creeped out, Derrick at first doesn’t believe his ears when he hears a girl crying for help. But he finds Laramie and pulls her to safety. Before she can tell him anything, a lightning strike starts a forest fire and they flee to a hidden valley.
Fleeing a drug hazed killer, the fire, and a gun-toting old lady bent on collecting a reward, Laramie and Derrick do their best to evade all three . . . and fall in love along the way.
Laramie came to consciousness.
Her head swam, and her thoughts couldn’t seem to come together. When the memory of flying from the cliff’s edge came hurtling back, she smothered a cry. The sensation of grabbing for anything at all, and finding nothing, stabbed her mind.
Her stomach clenched as she lifted her head and looked around.
Somehow, she’d slammed onto a ledge less than two feet wide, and managed to stay on the jagged rock through the night. Far below, mid-day sun glinted off a pond. Julie’s body was out of sight, for which she was grateful. A moan slipped out of her.
She looked up.
Nothing by sheer cliffs.
She glanced to her left.
Only air between her and the ground.
The same to the right.
There was no way down. No way up.
If she jumped, she’d die.
Taking a deep breath, she screamed. “Lawrence. Help! Come back!”
Nothing but silence met her ears.

About The Author
Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there's just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, eight ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!
