Book Description:
Lane Garret is a dead ringer...
Newly single, cheaters decoy Lane Garret is excited about her fresh start and believes everything is at last on track. Unfortunately, her fantasy of the good life is blown away…along with one of her marks. While on a date, Lane not just witnesses a murder but almost becomes a victim. Saved in the nick of time by one hot detective, she wonders if someone wants her dead.
On forced leave due to a pending Internal Affairs investigation, Jackson (Jax) Thornbird agrees to do a friend a favor. Tricked into decoy security, Jax decides one night will be easy enough, but things go awry. When shots are fired, he grabs the girl and leaves the scene of the crime—a rash decision that could ruin his career. However, Jax has a hunch the intended target wasn’t the dead, cheating husband.

It was too dark to see the woman’s face, but Jax recognized something about her. Streetlights ran over the car, creating a quick shadow before slipping back into the night.
He couldn’t get a good read on her face.
Even with her strange blonde hair and oddly matched clothes, Jax remembered the decoy.
This woman reeked girl-next-door wholesomeness, but without direct light he couldn’t place her, underneath the heavy makeup and the two-times-too-small Hello Kitty tank she wore.
“I know you,” she said. It came out in a hushed whisper while they sped down Wacker Drive. The underground tunnel had dangerous twists and turns.
“I-I-I remember—” she stuttered with a bit more panic lacing her voice.
A sedan whizzed past them, missing the sports car by mere inches. To overcompensate for the close call, she jerked the wheel too hard, careening them into a massive spinout.
Adrenaline thrummed through his veins, and Jax reached over to grab the steering wheel.
“Put your foot on the brake,” he instructed as they continued to spin in the opposite direction. She didn’t utter a single word, not even a peep, while Jax maneuvered the car into the slide.
Almost too late to save them, Jax noted very few cars passed them before they spun out over the median divider.
“I know you,” she wheezed. The woman dropped her head on the wheel.
The car idled in the middle of the road as Jax tried to calm her down. “You’re going into shock,” he told her. “I need you to take three deep breaths, hold for five seconds, then exhale. Come on, I’ll do it with you. One.” Getting close to her, he inhaled and waited before he released.
After a moment she began to follow his lead. Once they got through their first repetition, she had calmed down a bit. “Hot,” she said before she snatched the blonde wig off and shook her dark hair loose. The light from the street caught her eyes. Jax gazed into her dazzling green globes.
“Yeah,” he admitted as he stared at her. “I know you, too.”

Lets Learn a Little about Amber Malloy:

What is your writing environment?
Everywhere and anywhere. It used to be at the home office only, but now I can get it in anywhere.

Who is your perfect hero and why?
A perfect hero is someone that has spurts of vulnerability. It doesn’t have to be all of the time, just once and a while.

What authors have caught your interest lately and why?
Same old standbys—Sue Grafton, Dean R Koontz—but I have found some new indie writers. Jana Deleon is one of them.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?
Something epic on the creepy meter.

Top 3 things on your bucket list?
Here’s the thing … the last time I heard someone say bucket list, they died. Therefore, I don’t do bucket list.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
A Chicago doctor got hooked on drugs. His license was revoked, so he started to take tissue from dead people and put them into patients on the transplant list.

What is your favorite scene in your new release?
Almost all of the interaction between Lane and Jax is really cute. I can’t pick.

What are you working on now and when can we expect it to be available?
I’m trying to knock out a Grimm fairytale contemporary. We’ll see how it goes.

What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Reading, movies, and travel.

What would you consider a perfect date?
Laughter, good food, and wine.

What is one interesting fact about you that readers don’t know?
Just one? Let me think about it and I’ll get back to you.
