Dear Reader:

Like most writers, I am an avid reader. I started light - Encyclopedia Brown, Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew - but by the time I was eleven, I'd discovered my mom's vast Agatha Christie and Ed McBain collections.

But two things happened on my way to becoming a mystery writer.

First, I discovered Stephen King.

As a thirteen-year-old book fanatic, I learned about page-turners early. I wrote Stephen King a fan letter after reading THE STAND and told him I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. He wrote back and told me: "If you want to be a writer, write." Which I took to mean, why wait until I grew up?

My problem? I never finished anything I started. As soon as I was well into the story and had figured out what was going to happen, I became bored and started a new project.

In high school, I became fascinated with true crime, and it wasn't until college that I started reading my mom's romance novels. They hadn't appealed to me as a teenager, but as a "mature" twenty-one year old, I found them entertaining.

Nora Roberts, Linda Howard, and others introduced me to contemporary novels that didn't involve murder, dismemberment, or deranged clowns living in the sewer.

Over the next decade, I built a career, married, had five kids, but never stopped reading--or writing.

I soon discovered a wonderful blend of suspense and romance with the romantic suspense novels of Tami Hoag, Kay Hooper and Lisa Gardner, and knew exactly what I wanted to write. I could take my mystery reader background, my fascination with true crime, and my desire for a happily ever after, and blend it into a romantic thriller.

I love romance because I want a happy ending. True love should win over adversity, if the hero and heroine are worthy. They need to earn it, because nothing achieved easily is truly appreciated. But I also love intense thrills and chills because they are physical--fear causes the entire body to react, heart pounding, head thumping, hands shaking.

DEAD HEAT, a Lucy Kincaid Thriller, is available now. Coming in July is the next Moreno & Hart Mystery, HIT AND RUN, co-written with Laura Griffin. Spring 2015 will have COMPULSION, the second book in the Max Revere series.

Thank you to all my readers. I appreciate your feedback and enthusiasm.

~ Allison Brennan

This book is a good standalone. The characters will hold your interest throughout. The plot is complex and hard to predict. WHile I like reading and re-reading as a series to see the growth of the characters form the start of the series to the end, I have already preordred the next book in the LUCY Series. I have really enjoyed seeing how Lucy has grown through the books.

Brennan's Lucy and Sean stories never disappoint me. This is a perfect book to introduce a new reader to this series. Don't let it's short length deter you, it's packed with plot twists and turns and non- stop action.

I have read every book Allison Brennan has written and generally love her books. This seemed like a book she was in a hurry to finish. Not a very good read and I love the Lucy Kincaid series so I was disappointed by this latest installment.

I have read every one of Allison Brennan's books! She doesn't ever disappoint the reader. This book was NO exception. Fast paced, full of excitement and very well written! I got the book this morning and read it in an hour. I just couldn't put it down!!

This was the first (and only) Kindle book I've read. I have many physical books at my house to read and am finding that more and more of the series I love have started slipping an Ebook between the hardcovers and paperbacks. I'm still not used to the Kindle and am a long way from exclusively using it. But the book was good.
