Bookworm Annabelle Hart thinks she’s found the love of her life. But when her fiancé’s philandering ways shatter their happy future, she decides she’s through playing the victim. Now, rather than read about life, she wants to live it—starting with a sabbatical from her editing job in Chicago to travel the world. But the past refuses to let her go so easily.
He thinks he has his life figured out.
After watching the woman he thought he loved walk away from him, Holden Blackburn is still picking up the pieces. Content with his life as the owner of an English Inn, just outside the sleepy town of Alton, he’s living his new and peaceful normal. That is, at least, until Annabelle stumbles into his life, and he’s overwhelmed by a desire to learn all he can about her. Now if only he can get her to stay in one place long enough.
Will they risk their hearts on a new chance at love?
When her past returns in a way she can’t ignore, Anna panics, running from any possible future with Holden. She’s determined to keep her life from falling apart again, but she soon discovers the only place she feels safe is in Holden’s arms.
But some things even he can’t protect her from.
Wendy Owens has done it again! Her stories are told with so much heart it’s impossible to not lose yourself in the beautiful details of her writing and fall in love with her easily likeable characters. DO ANYTHING gives us the story of Annabelle Hart, an assistant editor for a publishing house who has secretly desired to be a writer herself. She catches her fiancé in the act of cheating on her a month before they are scheduled to be married. Her heart is broken as well as her belief in herself, shouldn’t she have seen his unhappiness? Could she really have loved and trusted someone capable of betraying her so badly? She flees the constant reminders of him by deciding to find herself while traveling the world visiting the places made famous by her favorite authors.
Her first stop is England where she soon heads to Chawton where Jane Austen once lived, may as well start with the best, right? There she stays at the Three Horseshoes Inn and Pub owned by a gorgeous innkeeper named Holden. Holden is funny, flirty, handsome, with a very fit and hard-muscled body, and has beautiful blue eyes that make Annabelle lose her ability to think clearly, much less speak coherently. And of course there’s his British accent that makes him impossible not to swoon over.
Holden is equally smitten with the beautiful Annabelle and her bright, witty, slightly shy personality. When insomnia brings Annabelle out of her room one night and into the kitchen for some warm milk she discovers Holden. Their accidental nighttime rendezvous quickly turns hot and heavy, intense with the attraction they both feel and until then had been trying to ignore, until Annabelle flees back to her room. They proceed to spend practically every waking moment together after that night, slowly getting to know each other, and falling in love.
Do Anything is a beautifully written, very sweet love story about two broken hearts finding each other, finding healing, and finding a soul-mate you’d do anything for. Ms. Owens doesn’t make it easy on them, there are plot twists, exes, friends and family to deal with that complicate matters and make the story more interesting. Annabelle struggles to be true to herself and along the way discovers what she wants for herself, which is made easier with the love and encouragement Holden gives her. He really is quite dreamy and made this story all the more sweet by his consistency and devotion. Loved him and loved this 4 stars book!

After several years of creating and selling her own artwork she gave her first love, writing, a try.

Her first series, The Guardians, consists of five books, Sacred Bloodlines, Cursed, The Prophecy, The Lost Years, and The Guardians Crown.
