Leah’s husband killed himself, but not before sending an e-mail to his brother in order to continue tormenting her, after his death. Mac has not been in touch with his brother or his family since he left school, but decides he believes the e-mail. The best way to check up on Leah and gain custody of his niece is to blackmail her, right?

Toward the beginning of Secrets and Seduction, I was fully prepared to hate Mac and wanted to slap him. The jumping to conclusions based on the say-so of someone you don’t really like resonates in a lot of businesses and relationships around the world. The author kept you on your toes guessing what Leah’s secret about her husband would be. My thoughts kept jumping around about what it could be.

The chemistry between Mac and Leah will scorch the pages so keep fans or ice handy. Neither is sure where things will take them because of so much distrust between them. Leah thinks Mac is like her late husband, but Mac starts getting confused because Leah isn’t acting at all like he was told. A very real life situation comes to a head between them and you are left wondering how it is going to get resolved. Leah’s love for her daughter will tug at your heart. I could relate to Leah so much when she was interacting with her and you could see Mac start to soften, because of Charlee. I think the author did resolve the situation between Mac and Leah credibly. All in all, this should get a place on the bookshelf.
