Drake Anderson is all the man Annalise Duncan ever wanted…
Annalise has it all. The perfect husband. The perfect son. The perfect life. After the father of her son Ayden abandoned her to be a single parent, she finally felt like she hit the romance jackpot. Her boss, Drake Anderson, turned out to be more than just a friend. He’s the love of her life, and an amazing stepfather to her son.
But the picture perfect marriage is merely an illusion…
After seven wonderful years, Drake leaves. He doesn’t give her a reason, or even the courtesy of a return phone call. Six months go by without even a single acknowledgement. Annalise is devastated. Her heart and soul belonged to Drake, and he was the only father Ayden ever knew. She’d dedicated her life to him and the family they built together, and she isn’t willing to let that dream go easily.
When Annalise spots Drake out at a café with a woman, her heart shatters all over again. But it’s not what Annalise thinks. He isn’t cheating on her. There are things about leaving that Drake just can’t or won’t explain. Some things should remain a secret.
He wants his old life back, but Annalise won’t accept anything but the truth…
Drake has to find a way to convince his wife, his Cariad, to take him back, but it may mean facing a truth he wanted to keep hidden. He must prove to Annalise that despite his past, he wants her…

What do you fight for?
BOOK 4 in the GUARDED SECRETS SERIES by @SaraNSchoen releases August 18th!
Have YOU caught up on the bestselling series in Organized Crime?
♒ GUARDED SECRETS SERIES by Sara Schoen ♒
Suicide Mission – Book 1
(FREE ON AMAZON)
||| SYNOPSIS |||
Sara Night lost her family three years ago in a car crash…
She tried to continue living a normal life, going to school, spending time with friends, and even trying to be a part of the family that took her in. She had almost gotten the hang of it, and moved past the suicide attempt.
Then she was torn away from her new family, her old life, and thrown into a world of guns, knifes, criminals, and where every mistake could get her killed. She was needed for what seems like an easy in-then-out mission.
That was until she got caught.
Sara then had to form an uneasy alliance with a cartel member to escape, which reveals her family’s car crash wasn’t an accident after all.
Is her new life worth more to her than revenge?
Or will she die trying to figure out why her family was targeted?
Covert Operations – Book 2
||| SYNOPSIS |||
CIRA agent Jackson Reeves won’t be denied his revenge…
He’s hunted down and killed the men responsible for his family’s fatal “accident”—all except the mastermind, Ash Crest. The problem is someone beat him to it, and Jackson won’t rest until he finds out who, and why. His search is complicated, because he’s several years into an undercover operation to take down the Cardoza Cartel and can’t risk blowing his cover.
Jackson’s sister Danielle is in danger from the very organization he has to pretend to support…
Camden Cardoza intends to take over the Cartel from his father, but to do so he needs a wife, and he has his sights on Danielle. Jackson knows he has to bring down the Cardozas before they claim his sister.
CIRA sends in more agents, including the beautiful and mysterious Night Stripe, whose task is to befriend Danielle and infiltrate the Cartel. Jackson struggles to find a way to communicate without giving both of them away…and falls for her in the process.
Jackson and Night Stripe walk the thin line between their mutual attraction, conflicting missions, and the danger of discovery, as Jackson’s objectives threaten to overwhelm him, putting those he loves in danger.
Can Jackson defeat the Cartel, save his sister, find Ash Crest’s killer, and complete his revenge—without losing his heart, mind, or life in the process?
Left for Dead – Book 3
||| SYNOPSIS |||
Katya Petrov is supposed to be dead…
When Ash Crest can’t finish the job, Katya is targeted by her own father, Volodya Petrov. He decides to take matters into his own hands by killing Katya himself.
He never expected Night Stripe to interfere.
When Night Stripe killed Ash and shredded the files from his office, she hoped his hit list would die with him and the survivors would be able to live without fear.
She was wrong.
Renegade had been undercover with the Russian mafia. It was a dark, dangerous, and deadly mission, especially for those unfortunate enough to be in his way. Disbanding the Cardoza mafia took time. But now, with Renegade’s cover blown and other CIRA agents under protection, it’s only a matter of time before Night Stripe is exposed.
Leaving one man alive was his only mistake.
The goal is to remove Volodya from power and save Katya, but Night Stripe didn’t plan on going back to save her teammate—and being captured in the process.
She’s alone, trapped, and fighting to survive. Can Night Stripe save herself, protect Katya, and finish the mission she started so many years ago? Or will she be left for dead?
♒ RAGING FIRE COMING 18TH AUGUST! ♒
||| SYNOPSIS |||
CIRA agent, Spit Fire, has a mysterious past…
No one knows what she went through before joining the agency, just like she wants. She walked away, she survived, or did she? Even after establishing a life at the agency, there’s something she can’t let go of—the need for revenge. She fights to keep innocent lives safe, but in her world, safe is only an illusion.
Especially when Camden Cardoza reveals her worse nightmare has come true…
Her stepfather, now under the alias of Harley Sanchez, is the new leader of the Cardoza Cartel. Harley knows she’s an agent, he’ll be expecting an attack from CIRA, but he won’t expect her to come alone. Spit Fire isn’t willing to risk more lives than the Cardoza Cartel has already destroyed. She’ll put an end to him to give others a chance to live. After all, he ruined her life and now she’s hell bent on returning the favor.
Revenge and the need to protect other members of the CIRA have always been her first priority.
For Spit Fire, this is her life and her family.
Family…that was always the problem.

@carissaannlynch gave SUICIDE MISSION & COVERT OPERATIONS by @SaraNSchoen FIVE STARS !!
SUICIDE MISSION: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “I loved the book. It has so many twists and turns, and well drawn characters, it kept me entertained with every page. I loved Sara, her development as a character and person throughout the book. I love stories where you get to see someone fall and then rise, and Sara is the kind of character you can’t help relating with and rooting for every step of the way. I loved the other characters too, but Sara was my favorite so far. I’m so excited to read the rest of the series!!!”
COVERT OPERATIONS: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “This series is action-packed, but its got a little bit of everything else in it too – romance, mystery, suspense, drama! The story is so well drawn and the world building Schoen constructs is incredible. I am in LOVE with this series, and I heard a rumor that there’s going to be a few more books, so I’m excited to commit and read them all!”
Check out this #REVIEW of The Guarded Secrets Series by @SaraNSchoen: “The reality feel that sits in this story is remarkable. You can tell that the author has put her soul into her writing and giving the readers a story and characters that so many can relate to. The entire series is really something that was so easy to sit back, relax and find yourself lost in.” – Stormy Nights Reviewing & Bloggin’
♒ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ♒
Sara Schoen began writing in middle school, but did not officially dedicate herself to writing until high school when encouraged by her writing partner. Before then, Sara had not thought about trying to publish her works because it seemed unlikely that anyone would take a chance on someone so young. Despite her previous thoughts, she published her first book, Amber Alert, at the age of nineteen, and began rewriting and editing a spy series that she spent years writing when she was younger. With a lot of hard work and determination, now that same series, which is close to her heart, is a bestseller.
Sara is a Biology Major with a minor in Environmental Science and a minor in Spanish at James Madison University, and spends her time writing, studying, and ghost hunting. While writing is a great hobby that turned into a passion to share with others, school is her priority.
Throughout her publishing journey, Sara has had an amazing support system from her family, friends, and significant other, who were with her every step of the way. She hopes to continue to write, and wants to inspire others to reach for their dreams no matter how far they may seem. She truly believes that dreams can come true at any age, if you put in effort and chase after what you want.

Jemma Bowers hasn’t kissed anyone in over a thousand days. She knows—she’s counted.
For twenty-year-old Jemma, rules are not meant to be broken…even if she’s the one who created them. Friendships have boundaries, relationships mean trouble, and don’t even get her started on sex. Haunted by the death of her mother and her father’s abandonment, Jemma finds herself hungry for something meaningful and permanent, but is afraid of what may happen if she pursues it.
Jordan Capshaw can’t fight his addiction. Not even if it will cost him his career…
When Jemma finds Jordan drunk and barefoot in the street, she convinces him to get in her car. Aside from the fact he’s the lead singer of her favorite band and pretty much the rock star of her dreams, she quickly realizes his addiction is a monster neither of them can control.
Who knew choosing between a rock star and a fireman could be so difficult?
Emotions run high as Jemma soon finds herself caught between the troubled rock star and her growing affections for Vic Harper, a swoon-worthy firefighter from her past. But when her grandmother passes away, leaving her with no other family, Jemma’s world falls apart.
To save herself from further heartbreak, she risks it all by breaking her own rules, and putting her heart on the line.
After all, the heart just might be the biggest rule breaker of them all.

My writing room never looks like this…normally there are at least four cups sitting on my desk. Most times my chair is full of washing. I hang it there after taking it out of the tumble dryer (yep my life is non-stop glamour) and it’s never that tidy…I’ve shoved everything else underneath my desk which was silly as you can still see it!
However, out of my tiny window, I can see my window box which I cram full of flowers. On my desk are flowers from my garden. As long as I can see beauty, and in my humble opinion flowers are stunning…I can write.
I have to write in complete silence which is hard with two teenage children who float in and out with their music blaring (I urge them to wear the expensive headphones they both demanded at Xmas only to be met with a shrug, “don’t know where they are” response) I resist the urge to enter their teenage caves, pick my way across their floor (a minefield of discarded clothes, food wrappers, and stuff) to locate them and ram them on their ears.
But I don’t’ need to be at home to write. I get idea’s in the car or doing shopping. I note them down on my phone for later. I think it’s important to get as much stimulation as possible as writing is a very unsociable profession. Being at a party recently gave me a great idea for a 45-minute comedy play. It’s important to live your life as well as write. Balance is the key 🙂

★★ THE DARKNESS WITHIN ★★
★ SYNOPSIS ★
The house next door holds a horrifying secret…
For as long as Claire Anderson can remember, the house next door to hers has been vacant. After the last owners passed away, the house fell into disrepair; practically unlivable conditions. She had even began to grow accustomed to the creepy little house next door.
But now the house holds a darkness with who’s living there and the secrets he has…
Her new neighbor, David Greer, is attractive, middle-aged, and friendly. At least, that’s what Claire’s mom, Jasmine, thinks, but Claire can’t ignore the bad vibe she gets from him. Maybe it’s because she’s not used to having a neighbor, or maybe it’s because her mom seems to have a thing for him. Then again, it could also be the strange looks he gives her when others aren’t looking. Claire isn’t one hundred percent sure what it is about him that gives her the creeps, but she sure as hell has to find out, and preferably before he gets too close to her and her mother.
Can Claire figure out what David is hiding behind the walls of his decrepit new home, or will she fall victim to the darkness within?
He readjusted the mask on his face as he walked closer to Holly’s shaking body. Her back was pressed flat against the wall and, despite the fact that her hands were tied behind her back; her feet were free of binds. When she saw that he was coming toward her, she began to kick her feet relentlessly; her mouth opened wide but only muffled sound came out.
Kneeling down in front of her, a smile stretched across his chapped lips. He held one hand behind his back, a knife gripped tightly in its clutches. He didn’t want her to see the knife yet. First, he was going to toy with her. He would be robbing himself of one of his favorite parts of the experience if he didn’t make her squirm first. He liked feeling like he was the one in control of his victim’s future. Because of him, they either lived or died. Some people might call it a God complex, but he called it self-assurance. It was his way of knowing that he mattered, and he knew that Natalie would be proud of him for taking initiative and doing what he loved. Toying with these girls the way he did, fueled his hunger, and made him feel. He was never as happy as he was when he was with his girls.
Holly turned her face away when his hand made contact with the skin of her cheek. He sighed as he brushed his fingers gently across the soft skin of her face, trailing down along her jawline to her chin, where he lifted her face to look at him. Her wide, green eyes stared back at him, a tear slipping from the corners before she closed them tight.
“You have nothing to fear,” he whispered, trying to gain her trust. He removed the gag from her mouth. It was merely a precaution while he was transporting her. Thanks to the country setting he chose this time, they were far from the nearest neighbors. In fact, she was the nearest neighbor, and the only person home was her sleeping little sister, whom she had been babysitting. “I won’t hurt you if you cooperate and do what I say.”
The only response that he received from her was a soft whimper.
“Look at me,” he demanded.
Holly flinched away from the harsh tone of his voice. A fat tear welled up in the corner of her eye and rolled down her pale cheek. Her throat was hoarse from the screaming she did earlier, but she still managed to choke out the word, “No.”
“Come on now, Holly. This won’t be any fun for me unless you play along.”
“Leave me alone,” she spat, enunciating every word while trying to turn her head away from him, but he only tightened his grip on her delicate face.
He clicked his tongue at her words. “Now, now. Open your eyes, or I’ll cut your eyelids off. That wouldn’t be any fun for you, now would it?”
She flinched at his words, but to his surprise, her eyes remained shut tight. “Screw you,” she growled through clenched teeth.
Sighing, he shook his head at the frail girl in front of him. “Either you open your eyes and speak to me, or I’ll go back to your house and see if that pretty little sister of yours will. What’s her name? Macy, is it?”
Shaking, her eyes stayed closed for a moment, thinking over his words. After about a minute of silence, she opened her eyes, glaring at him. “I will not be a part of your sick game. I know who you are.”
He tilted his head to the side, staring at her curiously. “You don’t say? What is it that you’ve heard?”
Holly’s glare deepened. “You murder girls for fun,” she spat angrily. “It’s like some sick game to you or something. You’re a monster,” she added; a new found courage, one that he would not allow, overcoming her.
Pulling his hand from behind his back, he pointed at himself with the tip of his knife as he asked, “Me? A monster?”
Her eyes widened at the sight of the knife, but she nodded nonetheless.
He curved his lips upwards into a sinister smile as he brought the knife up to her cheek, dragging it across her skin without actually cutting her. “I’m not going to kill you right now. I just want to play with you. If you do what I say, I might let you live.”
“You might?” she questioned; her voice shaking as she already knew the answer.
He nodded. “Life isn’t guaranteed, Holly.”
At his words, a noticeable shiver went through her. After a second, she whispered, “What happens if I don’t do what you say?”
Instantly he pushed the knife into her cheek, drawing blood and causing her to scream loudly. The piercing sound of her scream hit his ears like a fire alarm, and he yanked the knife away from her face, bringing the back of his free hand up and smacking her roughly. “Shut up!” He absolutely hated when they screamed. Sometimes it made him want to carve out their vocal cords.
Holly’s scream became raspy until she coughed a few times and closed her mouth. She bit down on her bottom lip, causing the skin there to turn a bright red.
“That’s better,” he sighed. Lifting his free hand again, he smiled at how she flinched away from him, but this time all he did was reach up and push her golden hair out of her face. She was just so perfect. He got chills just thinking about what happened next. “So, are you ready to have some fun?”
Despite what her mind was telling her to say, she nodded her head. Behind her back, her fingers were fumbling with the tight rope that was wrapped around her thin wrists, trying and failing to loosen it. The rope was so tight that the only thing she was accomplishing was rubbing the skin on her wrists raw whenever she moved her hands.
“Good.” He raised the knife up again, leaning toward her face with a determined glint in his dark eyes. A smile crossed onto his face as he pressed the tip of the knife into the skin of her forehead. His blood boiled and he grit his teeth as she let out a cry of pain, yet even her scream couldn’t take away his excitement as her crimson blood pooled from her wound. “You’re number six.”
