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. Long has Lord Julian Casvelyn lived with guilt brought on when his brother was murdered by England’s most infamous traitor. 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.

SEDUCTIVE SECRETS is a FREE ebook. I hope everyone can take the time to enjoy it. I would like to share a few reviews with you. Thanks so much! Have a lovely day!

CTRR Award- 
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

Best Historical Romance I've Read in Ages
Lace and Lavender
Its been a while since I've settled into a historical romance this good. Between the gripping mystery surrounding the scandal of Alyce Hythe's name and her passionate romance with Julian Casvelyn, Seductive Secrets had me hooked. Unpredictable catastrophe and suspicion followed Alyce throughout the novel, at every new page there seemed to be a new development to the scandal surrounding her and I absolutely loved it! Unlike so many other novels I was refreshed by the fact that Seductive Secrets was not predictable; I had no idea where the story was going to go next, every clue to the mystery was a surprise! As to the romance surrounding Alice Hythe and Julian Casvelyn... well lets just sa,y it was very steamy... in a good way. Overall I would definitley recommend Seductive Secrets to anyone who likes a novel where romance and scandalous mystery have a starring role.

This is definitely a must read! I truly enjoyed the story and characters, the perfect mix of romance, mystery, suspense, action and the historical background descriptions. Once you get to know the characters you will be engrossed until the end of the story. I am looking forward to more books from the author, as well as the rest of this series.


Mystery, intrigue, supernatural, love this book has it all!

Nice length. Very interesting storyline. Found all the forbidden love really added to the mystery. Glad the auther didn't hide any of the unsavory secrets of Londons backrooms.. I wish Lissa could have gotten out of her situation before her attorney died, but at least she was left a rich widow. A few times I had to reread pages to clearify some of the information on the traitor, but it all worked in the end. Glad to know there are angels out there looking out for people we love.
