LOVE in the USA is back! Meet the Hesters—sisters Sonja and Elaine and their cousins, sisters Robin and Theresa. It’s their time to fall in love and Fate has the right partner in mind for each—soulmates these women never saw coming.

I never thought I’d see Jay West outside my TV screen ever again. We first met when he was eleven and I was ten. Our older sisters forced us to play together while they ran upstairs to make unsolicited phone calls to cute boys. Finally, Jay asked me what was the name of the puppet I was holding in my hands. 

I hung my head, embarrassed by what my sister called my perpetual state of geekdom and said, “Skinny Pig.”

He said, “cool!” And from that moment on we became best friends forever—or at least I thought.

Years later I developed boobs and he became a teenage heartthrob. Then came that night. 

Something happened between us—something unexpected and confusing. That was fifteen years ago. We hadn’t spoken since then. Now here I am, staring into his deep blue eyes. He’s no longer a boy and I’m not a girl. I’m a woman and he’s a sexy man, who’s just offered me the position of a lifetime. 

Should I take it? 

If I say no, my mundane life will go on as is. If I say yes, I’ll have to trust Jay West won’t eventually leave me high and dry like he’d done so many years ago.

To the naked eye, the Sterlings are the picture of perfection.

Two generations of strapping men—shrewd and successful business moguls. The women—beautiful, smart and ambitious trendsetters. 

But what lies beneath the Sterlings' perfect and carefully constructed exterior? 

When the matriarch of a powerful family disappears and all evidence points to murder, it will take an unlikely duo to figure out the mystery behind what happened to her. When Rosalie Stetson meets Chance Sterling for what she believes is the first time, she thinks he’s arrogant and cold. Chance remembers Rosalie from their brief encounter years ago on her wedding day to her ex-husband and his spoiled cousin, Peter Sterling. And although Chance had desired Rosalie since the moment he laid eyes on her, he’s still unable to trust her motives. Passion ignites and mystery abounds as this thrilling tale of whodunit keeps you guessing until the very end. 


*****

“Secrets and Chance is a magnetic story that really pulled me in. Z.L. Arkadie has a knack for creating complex characters that grab hold of the reader and take them along for the ride. The author does a great job of presenting an intelligent romance along with an intricately weaved mystery. I am very excited for the next book in this series!” Neila F., Editor, Red Adept Editing

Women.

They’ve always been my weakness. 

There’s a certain line a man shouldn’t cross to get the woman he’s always wanted—especially when that woman belongs to his best friend.

I crossed that line. And now I’ve lost everything that matters.

They say a man has to hit bottom before he rises to the top. I’ve hit bottom—but like a balloon filled with helium I’m working hard as hell to pick myself back up.

Then I meet Carter. She’s irresistible and way too good for me. I’m not ready for her—at least not yet. Plus she’s my buddy’s favorite cousin. I’ve made the mistake of crossing him once, and I sure as hell don’t want to cross him twice. So I’m keeping my distance. But as each day goes by, I’m finding it harder to resist her.
