Secrets Lives


Do you have a secret? That one thing that no one knows about you?

With the releases under Totally Bound’s new imprint, What’s her Secret, and my book Last Call, I have been thinking about what secrets people have.

They can be big or small. They can be naughty or nice.

Secrets can be just about anything.

I’d love to be able to reveal some great mysterious secret but honestly…I got nothing! Lol!

So I thought I’d share about my decision to write and how most people take it.

When asked, I say I write paranormal romance, I don’t really get into the erotic aspect of things. I figure once people look at my website or go to Totally Bound’s they will figure it out. I mean have you seen the sexy covers I have. OMG, they are hot!!!!!!

So I guess for people who don’t know me are probably surprised that I do in fact write erotic paranormal romance.

To the stranger on the street, they have no idea when they walk beside me on the street, that I’m making up a story about them in my head. Either they are going to get ravished by a dominant werewolf or they might be the next victim of the naughty vampire.

Now the people closet to me do know. My husband, siblings, parents, and even my daughter know what I write. Although I won’t let me fifteen year old daughter read any of my works yet. Even the people that I work with, as my day job, know and are supportive.

When I was asked to write a book for the Totally Bound’s imprint What’s her Secret? I was thrilled! I absolutely loved the concept and sat down to start to plan.

I felt that the best way to outline was to think about what I would like to read. If I could figure out what the characters secret was.

It shouldn’t come as a shock to most of my readers that I decided to go with the paranormal. It’s what I enjoy the most. Like I always say to my husband… I read paranormal before it was cool. Lol!

So in my short story ‘Last Call’ we met Piper Maxwell. Piper has spent the last several years running from her past. Working for Jace Anderson, Piper must decide if she’s ready to stop running.

Last Call Blurb:

Haunted and on the run, Piper must decide—trust Jace with her secret, or leave, breaking both their hearts?

Ex-Marine Jace Anderson has followed orders his entire life. Now free of the bonds that held him, he has started over in a new town with his own bar. He’s even found the woman he plans to settle down with. If he can keep her from running, that is.

Piper Maxwell never stays in one place for long. She’s learned to stay two steps ahead of the past that haunts her. Moving on has never been a problem until she meets Jace. Jace calls to a part of her that she long ago buried. And she knows if he finds out what she’s hiding he will run as far and fast as possible.

Jace must convince Piper he will remain by her side always. That vow is tested when Piper’s past finally catches up with her.

Will Jace and Piper be able to find their happily ever after or will the start of their relationship also be the end? 

This short story gives us the very first look at Piper and Jace’s journey. But one of the reasons I was so excited about this new imprint are the special features.

If you buy Last Call from Totally Bound, you will be treated with a special extra. An alternative ending! This is such a different and neat addition that I want everyone to know about!

Now available: The release of Totally Bound’s What’s her Secret box set.

This is also something new that Totally Bound has started to offer. The first six books in the What’s her Secret? Imprint all available together for one low price.

What’s her Secret? Box Set Blurbs
'Secret Seductress' by Geraldine O'Hara
When you’ve fancied someone for a long time and finally get into the bedroom with him, things start hotting up!
Mandy is known as the girl everyone turns to for a good laugh and some fun, but she’s hiding a secret from the friends she usually hangs out with in the local pub, The Rusty Nail. She’s fallen for one man in their group, Leon, a sexy-as-sin piece of deliciousness who gives off the impression he’s a bit of a rake. Mandy doesn’t care—rake or not, she wants him, but the question is, how do you ask a friend out without ruining that friendship?
Thanks to a quirk of fate, Mandy is able to become someone else—a wanton sex siren who gives her the confidence to be whoever she wants to be in the bedroom. Leon has no idea about Mandy’s desire for him, so in a sexy outfit, stockings and high heels, Mandy’s ready to give him the time of his life.
'The Submissive's Secret' by Natalie Dae
Lori must prepare herself for the flogging of her life.
Lori has been keeping a secret from her friends. She’s being taught the lifestyle by a Swedish Dom, Jaska. Soon it’ll be time for him to let her go, but there’s one issue. She’s fallen in love with him and he doesn’t know it. With two secrets on her mind, plus knowing her relationship with Jaska will soon end, Lori isn’t sure what to do. Their play enthrals her, and she’s found it’s the only thing that makes her feel alive. She has one last scene she’d like to act out with him—and that’s a good and painful thrashing with a tawse.
Jaska collects her and whisks her away to his home. His dungeon is a place Lori feels immediately at ease in, and when she spies the flogging horse, she knows she has to climb aboard. And when she does, she discovers that what she’s experienced with him up until that point is eclipsed by pleasure and pain so great she doesn’t even know her own name…
'Ashes to Flames' by Nichelle Gregory
Ashes to flames… their love has always stood the test of time.
After searching almost a year, Sabria has begun to lose hope she will reunite with her blood-bonded mate, Jai. All she can think about is finding him and reigniting their fiery passion while there is still time. Sabria is overjoyed when she locates Jai against all odds, but her relief is short-lived when she discovers he has no recollection of her and worse yet, he is happily engaged.
Jai senses an immediate connection to Sabria the moment he lays eyes on her. Devoted to his fiancée, Jai is wary of the strange bond between him and Sabria. He wants to keep his distance, but finds himself seeking answers to secrets only Sabria can provide. Blindsided by the truth and an unexpected tragedy, Jai knows he needs to somehow set things right before time runs out and he and Sabria are lost to one another once again.

'Her Secret Ingredient' by Lisabet Sarai
Stir in a pinch to stir up his passion…
When the Tastes of France food channel offers Mei Lee “Emily” Wong a series of guest spots, she jumps at the opportunity to take her culinary career to a whole new level. Ultimately, she wants a show of her own, but first she has to prove herself to Michelin-starred network founder and effective dictator, Etienne Duvalier. A legend in the world of classic French cuisine as well as a domineering perfectionist, Etienne is sceptical about the culinary abilities of a woman from Hong Kong. To make things more difficult, the master chef is also so gorgeous that Emily can't help being attracted to him.
Emily tries to solve both problems by spiking her luscious profiteroles with an ancient Oriental aphrodisiac. Unfortunately, Harry Sanborne, the low-key, bespectacled producer for Emily's show, samples the delicacies she intends for Etienne's consumption. His powerful reaction to her secret ingredient comes as a pleasant surprise to them both. Harry turns out to be far more impressive in bed than on the set. However, he can't do nearly as much to advance her ambitions as Etienne. Emily tries once more to tempt the exacting M. Duvalier with her special cooking as well as her feminine charms. The outrageous results threaten to end her TV career forever—until Harry steps in to save her reputation and claim her heart.
'Secret Identity' by Stacey Lynn Rhodes
Sienna knows anything can happen when working undercover, but falling for a suspect while in her secret identity has got to be the worst mistake she's ever made.
It was the easiest undercover job Sienna Reynolds had ever got into character for. Used to mostly boring, buttoned-up corporate roles, she could bring her real self out to play and instead of hiding her tats and piercings, they were fully out on display. That, of course, made her instantly recognisable to her sexy dance partner from the club last week when he walks in the door. But Sienna's very good at what she does…and it was no coincidence that she had met him then and runs into him now.

The attraction between them is still off the charts, but Sienna has a job to do and part of that is treating as a suspect everyone associated with the business she's infiltrating. One fact she knows for sure—Greg Mazzeo is keeping a secret too, and she needs to find out what it is as soon as possible. 
I love the new box sets. As a reader I am always looking for more stories to pick up.
The new box sets let you pick up several books that are similar in nature and give you the opportunity to try something new!
Coming Soon! What’s her Secret? In Print



If you prefer to hold a book in your hand, I have news for you… In December the first What’s her Secret collection will be available in print!

And I’m still not done!

Last Call was just the beginning of Piper and Jace’s story!

Coming in 2014 Piper and Jace will be back! That’s right, Piper might have defeated the foe of her past but now what? She has no idea where to go from there. Luckily Jace is by her side and has some thoughts about that.

The follow-up book to Last Call will be a novel length story that will show how Piper comes to terms with her true self.

So I hope you will pick up Last Call or better yet the box set of What’s her Secret? Sit back with a glass of wine or whatever your preferred beverage is and get lost in someone else’s secrets. I can assure you, you’ll enjoy all the stories!
