Surprised by the statement, Amato had no idea Jimmy was undercover but then again, he wasn’t the lead on this case.  It sucked being out of the loop.  “Get a warrant for Destiny or whatever her names is and Marchesi.” Following orders, Amato went to his desk and started the paperwork when five minutes later he heard Cohen call his name.  What could be so important he thought to himself?  As he entered Cohen’s office, he saw a clearly stressed out man who seemed ready to chew someone’s head off.  Ready for battle, Amato squared his shoulders and hardened his expression.  “I just got off the phone with corrections and Agent Schivone was taken to the hospital, he was attacked.”  Amato felt every muscle in his body tense as he contemplated going down to that jail and tearing every inmate and guard a…

First Meeting imageFor many years, I’ve continued on this site, though it’s been abandoned by the other authors who started here with me. I’m sure there’s not a lot of following here, so I’ve decided to give up posting here. For those few who might be reading my posts, I will continue to to them on my Dellani Oakes site every Friday.

It saddens me to give up on this enterprise, but the fact is, it’s simply pointless to continue, when there’s no readership to speak of. It feels like the passing of an era.

Starting in December, the First Meetings will end here and begin there. I hope you’ll come visit. ~ Dellani

Fall in Love with True Identity book 1 by Amanda Mackey

Fall in Love with True Identity

I don’t know who I am. I can’t remember my name, where I come from, or how I ended up in the hospital with a bullet wound to my chest. When I think back, searching for a memory, all I see is a big black hole of nothing.

But I recall her voice…the sweet, angelic sound that reached out to me through the coffin of black, pulling me back to the light.

I might not know anything about my past, my life, my identity—but the moment I opened my eyes and stared straight into hers, I knew I wanted her. I knew there was no way in hell I would let her go.

Now I need to piece back together the missing fragments of my life so I can figure out where she fits into it—or if she fits into it at all.

The only problem is if your past is buried beneath a shroud of darkness, you have no idea when it might come back to haunt you.

True Identity will be FREE from November 27 – December 2 Get Yours!
