Secrets are a staple of romance. They happen in many stories. Either the character lies and says he's someone he's not, especially in the Royals genre. Or a person is keeping a secret from the one that they love, as in they are sneaking around. Secrets have a way of creating drama, breaking up the couple or adding a wall between them. The secrets become an obstacle to overcome. As the characters find out the truth or accept it, they find their way to a happily ever after.

Now up for preorder, I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY releases on August 23rd in ebook and print. Be sure to grab a copy today!
Secrets always have a way of coming out.
Mavis Benson made a huge mistake. Scratch that--colossal mistake. Twice. Sleeping with her high school sweetheart’s twin brother definitely wasn’t part of the plan… nor was falling in love with him.
But that wasn’t the only complication Mavis faced. When an unplanned pregnancy upends her life at seventeen, Mavis skips town to spare her boyfriend, Josh Templeton, from the fallout. With only a letter of apology, she disappears, but not before confiding her secret to Josh’s brother, Austin.
When Austin resurfaces in her life years later, he brings the past to Mavis’s doorstep. Josh wants her back, Austin isn’t willing to surrender, and the path to happiness isn’t clear. Caught between both men, Mavis must choose between the brother for whom she broke her own heart, and the brother who picked up the pieces.
I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY is a heart-pounding reveal of best kept secrets. The truth is never easy, and neither is putting down this page turner. Fans of Nora Roberts and K.G. Fletcher will want to get a copy of I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY.
