Secrets (Lords of the City – Book Two)

Who is stalking Blaire and is her new love, Cristiano, involved?

After following other people’s orders my entire life, I’ve finally struck out on my own. I realize that I don’t even know who I am. It’s time I found out who Blaire Daniels really is. I need to discover myself… reinvent myself.

And, if the breathtakingly sexy and handsome, not to mention super rich, Cristiano Leventis is a part of that equation, who am I to complain?

But, is it just coincidence that I meet him now? When I think someone is following me? Or is something more sinister going on? Please don’t let me be falling in love with the wrong man. He seems like such a perfect Mr. Right…

Although this novel is part of the Lords of the City series, it is a full-sized STANDALONE novel with an HEA and NO CLIFFHANGERS.


Alice Ward writes a beautiful story of unconditional love and self-sacrifice. For Cristiano and Blaire, secrets from their past will come back to haunt them but they will also affect the people around them. The plot was exceptionally well thought out and although there was a certain amount of turmoil, I felt an ongoing sense of calm and remained totally immersed in their romance throughout the book…I would highly recommend this book and hope that you too enjoy your time with Cristiano and Blaire.

Instant romance and suspense. Just when you think you know the plot, there is another twist. Hot love scene and wonderful plot! Chantay Doster


A breeze wafted in through my bedroom window, lifting the lace curtains. Down on the street two floors below, a car honked and someone shouted in Spanish. Women chattered and birds chirped. Spring. It had arrived just as gloriously as it always did.

I took a deep breath and gazed at myself in the floor-length mirror leaning against the wall. I meant to hang it weeks ago, but like so much else in the apartment, I just hadn’t gotten around to it. Nearly six months into the lease and I still wasn’t sure how I felt about living alone. It was weird, waking up in the middle of the night and being able to do whatever I wanted. I knew it was good… well, hopefully I would one day see it as good. Besides, it was past time to cross living alone off the bucket list. But it was still odd, just like almost everything else that had happened in my life this past year.

I brushed some of my blonde hair from my eyes and twisted my lips, making a funny face at myself.

“Don’t be nervous,” I said out loud. “You got this.”

I scrunched up my nose, Mirror Me not believing Right Side Me.

“Really,” I stressed to my reflection, giving myself an encouraging fist pump. “Really.”

The one seriously fantastic bonus about living alone that I had discovered? You could talk to yourself twenty-four-seven, and no one else was around to look at you funny.
