Blossoming Act

Free sample

Act 1
When Sirenity Freeman moved to New York to begin a new life a decade earlier, she never imagined that she would return to San Francisco. She had left her past behind and moved on to pursue her dream of a better life.

Act 2
The longing to rectify and heal her deep emotional wounds led her to try and seek solace in forgiveness. It beckoned her back to San Francisco, the city where she grew up. The only way she could ever truly be free was to understand why things happened the way they did and confront the one person with the answers.

Act 3
Upon her quest for closure, Sirenity’s best laid out plan got detoured. The roadmap took a turn directing her right into the arms of the leading man opposite her in the play they were performing in.

Act 4
Falling in love was never part of her plan. However, Keefe’s charm penetrated the walls she constructed around herself and left her wanting more than just answers. This budding relationship could force her to disclose her own dark repressed secrets and confront the truth she has kept hidden from everyone. Will it send her running back to New York more damaged and emotionally destroyed? Or will she finally face her inner turmoil and free herself to live a life she never allowed herself to dream of?

About the author

 I grew up in the suburbs of San Francisco and have always called the Bay Area home. Because of my love for the bay area, I feature San Francisco as the backdrop for each novel.


I wrote my first full chapter book at the age of twelve during summer vacation. I have always had a great imagination and put those creative thoughts down on paper. That one story began my passion for writing. I still have the handwritten copy tucked away for safekeeping along with all the poems and short stories I wrote as a child.
 
After I finished writing my first novel as an adult, my mom suggested I publish it. That was something I never thought I would actually do. However, I did want a hard copy of my story for my family and friends, so I searched for a publishing company. Anyway, I chose a company and route that was totally wrong for me. After a few years with that publisher, I bought out my contract, decided to self-publish, and here we are today. It is the best decision I made for my book babies, allowing me to introduce my stories to the world. And yes, they are my stories because certain situations in each story were derived from some event in my life, although I always put a twist on it.

The central themes of my novels revolve around family. I find families to be fascinating, especially when you uncover their layers of secrets. And what's a story without a little romance sprinkled into the pages?
 
I write women’s contemporary, romance, and I’m now planning out an erotic romance series.

I invite you to cozy up with one of my novels and escape into a world of family secrets and a touch of romance. I hope you enjoy the characters and their discoveries as they unlock their family’s mystery while possibly finding love
 
Happy Reading,
Rebecca

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
