Now I turn the spotlight on my smart and sexy books…Secrets banner for TRS copy

Over the past 4 months, the five novellas of the Secrets series have all been released. I’m thrilled with how well the SECRETS series has been received so far. Here’s a review that I loved from Melissa over at Romancing the Book:

“I read this book in one sitting, and I had a hard time putting this book down. I loved the two different story lines and liked that they did not compete with each other. This book is like a book within a book. The main and secondary characters were appealing and realistic. I loved the ending of Beth and Anthony’s story, and all the pieces of the puzzle seem to fall in place. Overall, this was a great book. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.”

Thank you, Melissa! And thank you to all of you who read. Period. It doesn’t matter what genre, even if I am partial to romance. 🙂 What matters is that you enjoy reading.

Here’s what the stories are about:

The world is full of secrets.

Drea Fortier, a reclusive philanthropist whose tortured past influences her belief that there can be no happily ever after for her, reaches out to help others in the hope she can transform their pain and give them hope for the future. Drea’s own story, along with that of her assistant, Michael Smith, is slowly revealed throughout the Secrets series.

Book One: Masquerade

Frigid bitch. The words seep into Beth Ritmour’s soul, no matter how hard she tries to deny them. A year after her divorce, they still haunt her. So when a mysterious benefactor offers a solution to her problem, Beth takes a vacation from her job as a dental hygienist and follows a cryptic note to Chicago, where she’s soon ensconced as a waitress at Club Masquerade. Although how she’s going to prove she’s not frigid is hard to figure out when the boss makes it very clear that sex, or any precursors to sex, with patrons or employees is strictly taboo. It’s not an easy rule to follow, especially when one deliciously hot bartender keeps very, very close tabs on her.

Book Two: Ivory Tower

Jenna Wilton is afraid of getting lost. On the brink of moving from a life under the controlling thumb of her mother, to the arms of her husband, she’s afraid she will never have the chance to know herself. When a mysterious note bids her to leave in the middle of her wedding shower, she slips out the back door and into a world where the choices are hers to make.

Book Three: Perception

Laid off from her job and evicted from her apartment, life couldn’t get much worse for Melinda Atkins. Dylan Maguire invites her to stay with him, but the strings attached are more than Mel is ready to take on. After all, she’s ten years older than him. And more years than that separate her and the models he photographs. He will lose interest.
Dylan Maguire has tried everything else to convince the woman he loves that he’s forever material, that their age difference doesn’t matter. He’s out of options. Afraid he’s on the cusp of losing it all, Dylan submits a request for help.

Secrets 4: Pandora’s Shame

Settled in her new career as a teacher, letters threatening to divulge Kate Storm’s past and ruin her future force her to ask for help in an unconventional way. Enter Cole Madison, a retired-Ranger-turned-protector, with the scar on his back validating that women are nothing but trouble. Until he sees Kate.

Secrets 5: Metamorphosis

All the pain, anguish, and terror of Drea’s life coalesce in this fifth and final segment of the Secrets saga. Michael Smith is determined to show Drea Fortier there is life after bad. And she’s had some powerful bad in her life. As he and Drea fight to keep that past from killing her, the Dom in him tries to show Drea that submission can be good. Healing. Loving.

    Pandoras Shame. Kate was member of BDSM club. But left that in past when her dom was more into beating women and that lifestyle was his mask. To hide his abusive nature.

  2. Trix says:

    In IVORY TOWER, perhaps Jenna realizes her Domme tendencies…


  3. Mary Preston says:

    I couldn’t begin to say.


  4. Lace Daltyn says:

    I’m loving the suggestions, folks. I hope you’re enjoying the blog hop!

  5. haley miller says:

    I think in Masquerade, Beth soon decides to forget the rules and starts delving into something with the bartender, where he shows her that she is anything but frigid.

  6. Lee Todd says:

    Ivory Tower feels like it could easily go all paranormal …

  7. Cheryl Rogers says:

    Kate in Pandora’s shame’s secret is that she was involved with quite a few men at one point and she is afraid they will find out.

    I think 3) if he has a sister or a female friend he could ask for help to find away to get her to take notice him.


  10. JeanMP says:

    #4 she was a stripper/escort and a past client is threatening to reveal her secret and she will lose her teaching job.

  11. Kyra says:

    Kate’s secret is that she was promiscuous. She slept with many men, trying to take away the pain of being abandoned by those who should have lived and protected her.

  12. JanD says:

    Ivory Tower: She discovers her inner goddess.

  13. anne3230 says:

    Drea was abused by a former dom.

  14. I think that secret will be that the Drea has had an abusive Dom or marriage and doesn’t trust her heart any more. lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  15. I think Jenna learns the difference between controlling a person and a submissive’s power.

  16. Congrats on all of your success! I love #5. Thank you for the fantastic hop!

    Masquerade – someone hurt her with those words, but all she needs is an understanding man to draw our her inner vixen that’s been waiting to break free.


  19. Lace Daltyn says:
