Overview

Booklist said about Found Wanting: “Top-notch suspense as believable characters in an action-packed plot will enthrall readers. Like Tami Hoag and Iris Johansen, Lamb weaves the textures of romance and suspense together in a satisfying read.”

Detective Mitch Kane is hired by millionaire Layton Keller to find his son and the woman who took the boy fourteen years ago.

But Mitch soon discovers that Alaina Chancellor isn’t anything like he expected. Before he knows it, the boy has been kidnapped and Mitch is protecting Alaina from hit men while trying to help her get Jonah back.

But Alaina has been hurt before, and she doesn’t trust anyone easily, especially a detective hired by her son’s father.

Unfortunately, she has no choice but to rely on Mitch, and as they race to save Jonah, they discover that both their lives have been found wanting.

Meet the Author

I started writing as a teenager, plunking my dad's electric typewriter on my bedroom floor and pounding away at it in my jams. I'd just finished reading Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon and found the unhappy ending inspiring. So, naturally, I decided to write romance novels, where the ending is guaranteed to be happy. You can’t imagine how relieved I am that you will never, ever read that first novel, which was edited using scissors and rubber cement. At least the fumes were good.
The day I sold my first novel, Relative Strangers, I almost hung up on my agent’s assistant, thinking she was a telemarketer. See, I’d given up on getting published and had decided to learn how to play the piano. Apparently, the universe was not impressed by my (in)ability to tickle the ivories.
My second novel, Caught in the Act, was a Rita finalist in the romantic suspense category. Nora Roberts won that year. She said she was “shocked,” so I must have had her worried.
My other novels include Found Wanting, soon to be an e-book, and three Berkley Sensation titles that are available now: Cold Midnight, True Vision and True Colors. True Shot, coming in December, is the third in my paranormal romantic suspense True trilogy.Besides writing, I love to play tennis and board games and grill out with friends. My guilty pleasures include The Real Housewives of New York, Project Runway and So You Think You Can Dance. I don’t have time to be ashamed.
I have two adorable puddies, Maddy and Allie, and plan to someday have a dog named Boo.
