FAMILY SECRETS, set in Texas, year 1975 is a faith-based, historical, romance. What are the secrets? Which man will win her hand? Is it possible for Rebecca to forgive and reunite with her estranged family? Is Marshall capable of forgiving the intoxicated man who killed his wife and baby? Will Sam forgive himself for drug abuse and find someone to mother his child?
Here's an excerpt. Rebecca has managed to keep Sam from knowing about Marshall, but Sam shows up unexpectedly and finds Rebecca with Marshall.
Rebecca stood. Did her face show the fury she felt? With great effort, she kept the rage in her voice to a minimum. "Gentlemen, have you forgotten I’m here? You’re talking about me as if I weren’t at the table. I think the two of you are egotistical maniacs. You sound like athletes judging each other before entering a contest. What am I? A prize to win? Forget it! This is totally unreal. At this moment, I don't want to see either of you again! Ever! You got that?"
She stormed from the dining room before either man could get to his feet.
Marshall widened his eyes as Rebecca spun off. He turned to Sam. "That went well."
Sam grinned. "We deserved it."
Sam shook his head. "Nope, have you?"
"I can't say I have." Marshall guffawed.
Sam joined him.
My latest book, Family Secrets, is one of my favorites! I've written over a dozen books, but this one has my heart. Do I say that about all of them? Maybe, but I really do like this one. Like Rebecca, I'm in love with Marshall and Sam. And KC, the sweet, funny child? How could I now love her?
Family Secrets will be available on Amazon July 12. Please buy, read, and review. I hope you enjoy my characters as much as I do.
