Author/Reader Match with Mary Burton



Contemporary romantic suspense merges my love of both the romance and the suspense/thriller genre. RS enables me to present protagonists pursuing justice amid life’s scarily dark side while daring to embrace their own happily ever after. My latest romantic suspense, THE DOLLMAKER, is out 11/15/16 from Montlake.


Writer and wrangler of three miniature dachshunds seeks readers who share her love of page-turning romantic suspense, are ready to tackle a medical examiner heroine full of hope and determined to win back a hardened homicide cop hero, and to follow the pair as they pursue a very scary villain with a passion for ink.

What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • Not afraid to stay up past bedtime
  • Likes fast-paced page-turning suspense
  • Likes a hero with a few rough edges
  • Prepared to pull out the tissues when emotional heartstrings are pulled
  • Loves to match wits with the detective and killer to see whodunit
  • Enjoys a HEA with a touch of justice

What to expect if we’re compatible:

  • More books to come in The Forgotten Files series
  • A backlist to suit any binge reader
  • Giveaways on Facebook and a newsletter with news, promotions and Killer Recipes

THE DOLLMAKER by Mary Burton

Forgotten Files #2


Dr. Tessa McGowan had never seen anything quite like it. But the mutilated bodies on her exam table tell a stunningly macabre tale: someone with a twisted mind is kidnapping women and altering their faces to resemble real, life-size dolls. As a forensic pathologist, it’s her job to aid the agent leading the case—even if that agent is her estranged husband.

Twelve years ago an unspeakable tragedy destroyed Dakota Sharp’s world. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he’s devoted himself to capturing killers. His only regret is that it cost him Tessa. Now, as the Dollmaker case brings them together—and raises his suspicions that he’s crossed paths with this deranged psychopath before—they may just have their second chance. But it seems Dakota’s not the only one who wants to make Tessa his own…

She may be the Dollmaker’s next target, but Tessa has no intention of winding up as another toy on his shelf. Can she and Dakota stop this ghastly killer before his next deadly playdate?
