Product Description

**WARNING: This book contains dark themes, including violence of a sexual and physical nature that could trigger emotional distress in readers.**

Chloe Parker has the world at her feet. Her career in magazine publishing is flourishing, and she’s about to marry the man of her dreams, billionaire philanthropist Miles Durant.

But one month before her wedding, she receives a countdown card. No sender. No return address. No message. Only a piece of lace stained with blood. As the wedding gets closer, the cards keep coming, every day without fail.

It seems, while she’s counting down to the happiest day of her life, someone is doing a countdown of their own. Chloe fears she’s in danger, but she can’t turn to the cops for help. There’s something in her past she wants to remain hidden, a dark secret that could destroy the life of her dreams.

To make things worse, Miles is becoming increasingly impatient and suspicious about her past, to the point where he’s so angry he becomes a man she doesn’t recognize.

While working to keep her relationship intact, Chloe must find out who wants to hurt her before she loses everything, or ends up dead.

*This story unfolds over three volumes.*

Secrets and Tears (Fatal Hearts Book 2) is now available here:

Holy s*** is how i'm going to start this review!.. With a huge WOW added as this book has just compleately knocked me on my ass and left me with a ache in my jaw as it has just dropped and hit the floor!!!
Chloe owns her own magazine called Sage and it is extremely successful. She is also engaged to billionaire Miles and they have 30 days left until they get married... And her life takes on a darkness that will leave you, like me... At a loss for words!!! She recieves a hand delivered envelope of which contains a card... On that card is the number 30 along with a piece of lace soaked with blood... And this is just the beginning of the twists and turns and huge rollercoaster ride that is this brilliant book!!!
As i refuse spoilers in my reviews... I will recommend everyone not to miss out on this brilliant story and READ THIS BOOK NOW!!! It's going to be one kickass series!!!
Everything you need to keep you reading is contained in this book including emotions that range from each and every direction with each page i turned. I got compleately lost in it and couldn't put it down once i started until i had finished the very last word. It ends on one hell of a plot twist cliffhanger that i for one am absolutely desperately waiting for Ms Lavelle's next in series because i NEED to know what the hell happens next!!!... MIND BLOWING!!!

OMG!!! What another fantastic series from Dori Lavelle.

Dori had me at the prologue on Secrets and Lace. It scared the sh*t out of me just reading it, but I devoured the book in one setting.

Dori's style of writing will hold you captive and you will want the book to go on and on. Yes, there is a cliffhanger and it will make you wonder how I missed that.

Chloe is the owner of Sage magazine which she has made famous by exposing the most humiliating secrets of others. However, she also holds a secret of her own and is afraid she too will be exposed when she starts getting count down notes right before her wedding to the billionaire Miles Durant.

Will Chloe tell her fiancé what is going on with the notes or does she try to hide this from him? In order to find out who is behind the notes she must return to her home at Misty Cove and face the past. Does she find the answers to the questions or do more questions arise?

This review will not give you spoilers, all I can say is this is a must read book.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves dark suspense thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars lots of filler without the thriller 6 June 2016
By epicbookaddict - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ok this was a mistaken purchase on my part. I thought I clicked Steel and Lace by Adrian Leigh but got this instead so I thought what the hell, I'll read it.
First of all to write 1st person you really have to nail it for it to come across tight, this did not. The story was interesting but it ends about 2 chapters where the story should've begun. You see the twist coming but not right away. I think the author thought the first part of the build up would be the story arc but honestly I skimmed (a lot!) and don't feel like I lost anything along the way, it was mostly filler. I won't read the next one as I have a good idea of how it will play out already. It's a quick read-or maybe that's because I did a lot of skimming. Lastly this is not a dark romance, closer to the end it becomes a pale shade of gray perhaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book was an absolute page turner! 11 May 2016
By Author K Webster - Published on

Wow! This story completely took me by surprise. I went into it blind, assuming I knew what type of story I thought it was and boy was a pleasantly surprised that I really had no idea!

From page one, author Dori Lavelle draws us readers in with an interesting story. Chloe is hiding from her past, running a successful yet not necessarily respectable company, and marrying one of the richest and good looking bachelor's in the country. What could go wrong? Well, when special deliveries keep showing up, Chloe must dive right in and figure out if her past has finally come back to haunt her.

This book was an absolute page turner that I read in one sitting. I had to know what was happening. The author did an excellent job of leaving bread crumbs along the way and kept me guessing. I'll definitely snatch the next book as soon as it goes live so I can get more of this exciting story!

If you like romance with a huge suspenseful element, you'll love this story! I highly recommend it!

Wow! I'm not sure how to say it other than wow. Dori has done it again. She leads you in, sets you up with SOME background, never really telling you what's what, then BAM, drops the hammer. AND THEN YOU HAVE TO WAIT! Lol, again, wow. I cannot wait to continue this story in book 2. Holy cow!
