"Hot, steamy novellas with something for everyone"

Each December, readers hope to get a SECRETS anthology in their stockings for Christmas. This year will be no different when SECRETS 8 comes out.The stories range from an inherited brothel, to werewolves, to 19th century New York, to the not-too-distant future.

In Jeanie Cesarini's Taming Kate, Kathryn Roman is surprised to find out the kind old lady she has been sharing pints of ice cream with while watching old movies together, was her aunt. What is even more shocking to this advertising exec is that Kitty Romanov also owned a brothel and that Kate is the next legal heir. Kate is determined to unload her brothel, but there is a sexy cowboy who is going to try his best to convince her to stay.

Jared's Wolf by MaryJanice Davidson lets us revisit with the werewolves from Loves Prisoner in SECRETS 6. Jared wants to kill Michael and his pack to avenge his sister's death. Moira, who is half human and half werewolf, is going to make sure that that doesn't happen.

In Alice Gaines' My Champion, My Love, Celeste is put in an asylum by her late husband's children in New York 1888. Robert Albright goes to the asylum at the request of Celeste's friend Mrs. Stewart.

In Kiss or Kill by Liz Maverick, Camille Kazinsky has two weeks to decide whether the robo assigned to her should be reassigned or killed. Things don't go as planned when her former partner is plotting behind Camille's back.

Each story is what you have come to expect from a SECRETS anthology. Hot, steamy novellas with something for everyone, this one will definitely be one that readers will read over and over again while waiting for SECRETS 9.
