Spotlight on LETHAL LIES!

Hi everyone!  I'm thrilled to share my latest release with you!  LETHAL LIES is my third book with Harlequin Romantic Suspense, and so far, it's been my favorite one to write.

Here's the story blurb:

Trusting the man she loves could cost her her life 

Putting her faith in someone who lies for a living isn't the safest thing Dr. Jillian Mahoney has ever done. But to stay alive, she has to believe the undercover agent—who's kidnapped her to prove his innocence—isn't a traitor to the FBI. And to help him, she must deny their intense attraction as they run from two vengeful killers. 

Her captor, Alex Malcom, has lived a life of lies—some worse than others. Still, there's one truth he's reluctant to disclose to Jillian, the woman of his dreams. One that could stop their relationship cold.

I did a lot of research for this book, especially on the subject of inner city gangs.  Alex has been working undercover for the FBI for several years, and he's managed to infiltrate one of the more dangerous D.C. gangs.  I wanted to have a good understanding of what gang life is like, so I read a lot of books and watched a lot of documentaries (much to my husband's chagrin).  It's a fascinating subject, but one I'm glad to read about, rather than experience first-hand!

As for Jillian, she's an emergency room physician.  My background is in biomedical research, so I had a pretty decent idea of her job and what she would do in a given situation.  Best of all though, my brother is a doctor.  I lost count of the number of texts and emails I sent him, full of questions and asking for his opinion on different scenes.  Bless his heart, he was so patient about it all.  Still, I'm sure he breathed a sigh of relief when I turned the book in! 

If you're in the mood for a holiday romantic suspense, I hope you'll give Lethal Lies a try!
