Cape Series.

Gerry, Addie and Cael almost
captured Careen’s murderer but lost Cael in the battle. Is he alive? If so,
will he return? And the bigger question, thanks to Gerry's handiwork, will Cael
remember Addie? Is their love lost with him?

Addie’s family and friends
think she should keep the relationship a secret. Just what she needs, more
secrets and on top of everything else, someone stole the crystal. How is she
supposed to get over the loss of her lover, a lover she'd barely had for only a
few short months and deal with the secret of the lost crystal at the same time?

Aiden wants nothing more
than to help Addie overcome her grief and get over Cael. Or is that all he
wants? What happens when too many people know the secret and someone slips up? 

An unedited Excerpt from A Secret
 For the
umpteenth time, over the past two weeks, Addie recited the words over and over
again in her head, begging, pleading, Cael,
please remember me. Please remember you love me.
Dragging her useless, helpless, and now rail-thin
of a frame from the bed—their bed, his
—she stumbled into the bathroom, hardly recognizing the person in the
mirror. The sunken, dark eyes, her indented cheekbones, only made her brown
eyes look larger and more recessed, giving her face a hollow look. Well, that
was fine, now her face matched her hollow and empty soul.
She couldn’t work, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t
eat. Gerry threatened to give her job to Darcy permanently if she didn’t snap
out of it and get her rear end into the bar soon. She didn’t care. Why should
she? Let Darcy have the damn job. She didn’t need it. She had her trust fund,
didn’t she? She couldn’t face going in there, seeing all those people, everyone
asking how she was getting along … without Cael—the unspoken part of the
sentence. Well, how the hell did they think she was? She just lost the man she
loved. Lost her dad the year before. Who would be next? Who would she lose
next? Maia? The Twins who weren’t even born yet? Unthinkable. But, as the old
saying went, bad things happened in threes. Maybe if she stayed home, away from
other people, nobody else would die or disappear. Her family, friends, they’d
all taken turns checking in on her, Darcy one day, Maia another. Gerry, Cael’s
uncle Bart even stopped by. Someone, once a day would come knocking on her door,
trying to coax her out of the house. “Not ready,” she’d say. “I need time.” How
much time would it take? How much time does a person normally require before
they learn to cope with the loss of a loved one? Learn to cope? She didn’t want
to learn to cope. Addie hadn’t had much time with Cael to begin with. She felt
cheated. Resentful and cheated that she didn’t get to love and enjoy her soul mate
for any longer than only a few short months. According to Maia, Cael and Addie
were fated. She and Cael had joked, laughing about it being a secret fate because of Addie’s
secluded and sheltered childhood. Well, fate was cruel, wasn’t it?

Susan Griscom daydreams often. And sometimes
her daydreams interfere with her daydreams not to mention real life. Because,
let’s face it, her character’s lives are so much more exciting. Sometimes it’s
young adult or new adult or just plain old mainstream fiction and sometimes
it’s paranormal romance, where her playing field delves into a different
milieu than the usual vampires and werewolves. Some day she might write about
fangs and fur, but for now she prefers sticking to strong heroes and heroines
confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and abilities beyond the
norm, mixed with a little romance to get the blood boiling.
Susan lives in the Sierra Foothills in
Northern California with her very romantic husband, her small yippy dog, Riley,
and her humongous black cat, Saké. Her family consists of his and hers; four
wonderful sons and one beautiful daughter, and seven grand angels.
Susan loves when a story takes hold and pulls
her into the fantasy, that's magic.
