2012 Double RITA Finalist Joyce Lamb!
Joyce Lamb started writing romantic suspense novels as a teenager, plunking her dad’s electric typewriter on her bedroom floor and pounding away at it in her jams. Her latest release, True Shot (book 3 in the True trilogy), earned a starred review in Publishers Weekly and four stars from RT Book Reviews.
Joyce also oversees USA Today’s romance novels blog, Happy Ever After (usatoday.happyeverafter.com), which features interviews with authors ranging from best sellers to the self-published and book reviews of every romance genre from inspirational to erotica.
Joyce’s second novel, Caught in the Act (now available as a 99-cent e-book), was a Rita finalist in the romantic suspense category, and True Vision (Book 1 in the True trilogy) won a Daphne du Maurier award for romantic suspense and a HOLT Medallion for Best Book by a Virginia Author.
Joyce’s latest book is TRUE SHOT:
Samantha Trudeau has spent the past ten years using her intense psychic abilities to put bad guys behind bars. She’s always believed she’s one of the good guys, until fellow spy and best friend Zoe reveals a shocking secret about who they’ve really been working for. When Zoe’s gunned down, Sam goes on the run, because now her employer is coming after her. With no one to turn to for help, she flees to the only place she thinks she’ll be safe.
Journalist Mac Hunter has had a rough year. At the insistence of his good friends, sisters Charlie and Alex Trudeau, he’s going to crash at their family cabin for some much-needed rest and relaxation. But when he arrives he’s stunned to find the third Trudeau sister, Sam, wounded and unconscious on the cabin floor. Things go from bizarre to dangerous when men with guns show up.
Now, Sam and Mac are on the run together, trying to outsmart a demented government agent who has sadistic plans for Sam. As the heat builds between them, her past threatens their very survival. This unlikely duo — a man who uses words to fight his battles and a woman who’d rather use a Glock — are in for the fight of their lives. And in their growing partnership, perhaps they’ll have a true shot at love.
“True Shot is absolutely awesome! Ms. Lamb excels in the romantic suspense department. I’m always thrilled when I get the opportunity to read another Joyce Lamb, edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding, romantic thriller.”
—Night Owl Reviews
