IMPRISONED – The Secret She Keeps book IV of The Silent Seduction Series, continues the story of what began as an innocent Friendship Request on Phazebook that led to flirting, spiraled into Lust, then quickly developed into what seems to be an unstoppable Love Story, only to be cradled by Narcissism.
The Journey will pick up at the end of ‘EXPOSED – A Crack in Her Hidden Fortress’ book III, leaving off after the discovery that Maxi had been Living Two Lives. Her lives where not split by day & night. Her lives were split between Two Realities. The Atlantic Ocean separating us seemed like the smallest of barriers when I was willing to go to the moon for a cup of coffee and conversation.
Day to day, she existed as a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a primary school teacher. She lived in an idyllic village and appeared happily settled in life with her marriage, family, friends and community. She was “the sunshine” of her village and her family. But for her, she was dying inside. She had not wanted to get pregnant. She did not want to get married. And she did not want to be limited to a small village in Germany. She, like many suffering from depression, put on her mask and was walking through life miserable on the inside. She was in an unfulfilling marriage void of love and passion. Her family was controlling, especially her parents. She loved her children, but fought against motherhood. Her life was much like the weather ‘an der Donau’ (on the Donau River) …flashes of hot & sunny, but mostly cloudy with a high probability of rain or blinding fog.
With us being worlds apart, literally & figuratively in space and mind, we originally agreed for her to come back to Boston for a visit, where we fell in love some 18 years ago. It would be romantic for both of us, and safe for her to keep me separate from her family. But when would she be able to leave her new baby, Sebastian? Maybe, it would be easier if we came up with a better plan? I am a clever man… what do you think I proposed?
Without Yearning, there can be no Longing. Without Lust, there can be no Desire. Without Sorrow, there can be no Love. Without the Devil, there can be no God. The Silent Seduction Series is based on a False Reality, a Real Fantasy and a True Story. Character names and certain identifiers have been changed to protect the Innocent, the Young and those unaware of how History is writing itself Every day. There are those of us that are Observers and those that are Oblivious to what is Happening right in front of them.
Author’s Note: This book is NOT your traditional romance story. I can say that without even giving away the ending. It is written from the male perspective and utilizes the wonderful aspect of hindsight entries of my thoughts as we travel this journey together. We have all been deeply in love. We all have some regrets. But can you remember the exact moments in detail? WHAT IF you could change the slightest thing, uttered an “I’m sorry” a little faster… or opened your eyes to what you chose not to see? While she may be his Wife, she is MY Mistress. I own her heart. When she built walls around herself in an attempt to conceal her deceit, the inevitable event happened to open a Crack in Her Hidden Fortress. But, her mistakes began long ago with the Secrets She Keeps.
IMPRISONED – the Secrets She Keeps is BOOK IV in The Silent Seduction Series… you will need to understand that you are potentially missing the details of WHAT IF? the Rekindle book I is the prequel where it all started. MAXI – his Wife, MY Mistress book II forged the Affair letting you know how we got to where we are today. In the series, yesterday isn’t as important as tomorrow, until you start looking back. EXPOSED – a Crack in Her Hidden Fortress is book III is where Maxi gets exposed and can no longer hide.
This is the first time The Silent Seduction is being released in reflowable format (mobi & ePub). Like I said, it’s not traditional in any way. In the fixed format PDF, there are emojis expressing our feelings for one another as we pour out hearts out staring at a screen, waiting for a response. Sometimes, as simple and as important, as sending a beating red heart to say goodnight or an I love you. In the reflowable versions, I am forced to insert <beating heart> instead of the symbols, but the meanings are the same. I understand the need and desire to read on eReaders with all of their benefits. That is the trade-off. But I have heard that the reader can imagine the emojis, and more importantly, the emotions of the emojis effortlessly once the reader is engulfed into the story.
Also, WARNING: there are open bedroom scenes included in the entire series. These can be very detailed, but at the same time, they can be entirely skipped over, if the reader is sensitive to the physicalness of two lovers that cannot keep their bodies apart. Feel free to skip ahead of those scenes and just read Maxi’s reaction to how I seduced her. It will all make perfect sense.
One more warning: I may, no, I definitely do use colorful language when there is conflict. These are real, raw emotions and are not filtered for the general audience. These are adult books only and meant to appeal to those that are curious as to what happens behind closed doors. Will you join us?
IMPRISONED – the Secrets She Keeps is written from the perspective of me, the main character, Tommy. Along the journey, you will find thoughts from me serving as ticklers to indicate a conflict from the past or coming in the future. Some call it hindsight. When it is happening, it is blindsight.
The next installment of The Silent Seduction Series will be released on Sunday, August 1st in Fixed Format eBook (includes colored emojis), Reflowable Format eBook (black & white to fit all eReaders) and paperback.
