I positively enjoyed Seductive Secrets. Colleen Connally spins a tale that scoops up the reader and transports them into action, romance and intrigue. There is so much more that makes this story spectacular. It is filled with deception, treachery, romance, intense drama, and detailed characters that pull in the reader from the beginning until the end. The secondary players add great finesse to the storyline. I have to admit it was completely hard to put this book down. Ms. Connally creates an enthralling read that surrounds with anticipation that continues to build, leaving this reader spellbound. - Cherokee

This story kept me on the edge of my seat as Alyce goes through the days trying to learn the truth. The suspense kept my heart racing as Alyce meets someone that knows something about her father. It turns out to be an attempt on her life. I literally held my breath until I knew she was alright.
Later in the story, Haynes takes Alyce through a journey of sensual feelings for Lord Julian. Alyce discovers that she is falling in love. And through the description Haynes uses throughout her story, I experience the same feelings Alyce felt. Haynes was able to make me place myself in this story to feel as if all the action that took place happened to me. I especially like when I read a book and can feel that way.
There is one scene toward the end of the book that made me not able to put the story down--when Alyce is led to old ruins at Colonel Tolworthy’s estate by someone trying to cause her harm. I stayed up late reading the last section of the book because I simply could not quit reading until I knew the outcome.
Someone wants Alyce Hythe dead…

Shunned from London society for being the daughter of England’s most notorious spy, Alyce Hythe desires only to clear her father’s name. For years, she has been hidden away from all prying eyes, given a new identity and told to forget who she was. But strange things have been happening causing old rumors to once more be whispered.

But one eventful night has changed everything Lord Julian believed about his brother’s death. Never did he suspect the woman he has just saved from certain harm is the daughter of that man. Now Julian is caught in midst of a conspiracy and desire for that woman. Thrown together by fate, the two search for answers long denied them and along the way discover a love that can free them both.

  1. So glad you enjoyed it! Love getting feedback!

  2. My first read of yours and I found it very hard to put down, truely great suspensful romance. Looking forward to reading more in this series. Thank you, you are a talented author.

  3. You're too sweet. I do so appreciate your thoughts. I'm working on two new books for the series. Hopefully will have one of them ready early 2013! I'm so glad you enjoyed Seductive Secrets!

  4. I loved Seductive Secrets! Is there connection between book 1 and Broken Legacy?

  5. The books in the Secret Lives Series are stand alone books. The common thread is a tad of paranormal and the need for secrecy. Whereas Alyce had her name changed to protect her identity, my new heroine's legitimate birth is questioned.

    Though I will admit, I loved my characters in Seductive in particular I would love to write a book about. We'll see..

    I'm so happy you enjoyed Seductive Secrets. Hopefully, you will enjoy Broken Legacy as well.
