Police dispatcher Shannon Malloy didn’t think her day could get any worse. But it does. First, her ex-boyfriend takes his latest flame to Jamaica – where he’d promised to take her – and then a disturbing 911 call tests the bounds of her professional skills. To top it off, her best friend is determined to set her up with the new homicide detective – a cop, just like her two-timing ex.

When the anonymous 911 caller takes a too-personal interest in her, Shannon is forced to let new homicide detective Hugh Montgomery into her apartment and her life. Her Christmas holidays heat up as a stranger stalks her and a detective pursues her heart.

Police Dispatcher Shannon Malloy stared at the illuminated button on her console. The 911 caller's words bounced around in her head like a ping-pong ball in an empty room. Just when you think you've heard it all...

She grimaced and wished for the hundredth time she hadn't volunteered to swap shifts with Trisha. The evening had gone from bad to worse, first learning Kyle had taken his latest flame to Jamaica--where he'd promised to take her--and now this.

Sound of a bullet. Jeez. Full moon, Friday night, and all the crazies were out. What could be better?

Shannon adjusted the microphone boom of her headset and squared her shoulders, drawing her professionalism around her like a thick sweater. "Sir, you've reached the Police Emergency Center. Would you please state your name and emergency?"

The man's voice rasped into her earpiece. "Name don't matter. Nobody'll remember me."

"What's the nature of your emergency?"

Silence. A heavy, thick silence that made the hairs at the back of her neck stand on end. Maybe this wasn't just a prankster.
