The Fear

Book 3: Secrets of the Harper Sisters

A Steamy Second Chance Romantic Suspense

Paperback (Available 19/10/22)
Signed Paperback Pre-order

The fear for me was the second my heart stopped as I stared dead into the eyes of the man who destroyed me and everything I had worked so hard for my whole life.

I’m Cassandra Harper. This year was supposed to be my fresh start. The change I needed to repair all the damage after my dreams were shattered and actually make something worthwhile of my life. That was until I found out he was back.

Brandon Lewis. He left me as a nobody, with nothing to his name. He’s returned a smug, cocky, ex-professional football player. Loved and adored by all.

I would just stay the hell away from him, but as my luck would have it. He’s now the new football coach at Palm Springs High. The very same school where I have just started teaching dance, making him impossible to avoid.

He makes his intentions obvious right from the beginning. He’s not going anywhere, and this time he knows what he wants—me.

Having him around makes me crazy, and my well-practiced act starts to slip. I’m not the girl I was back then. I have secrets because of him, deep dark secrets that I have hidden so well until now, and I would do just about anything to keep them that way. And that means keeping him away as well.

Am I right to be scared? Will Brandon destroy me again? Or could he actually turn out to be what I need to live my life again?

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite by this amazing author!! Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2022

“It is with absolutely certainty that Ms. Steel can write no wrong. From the few books of hers I have read, they have been absolutely amazing and I have loved them all. This one being my favorite. Or maybe with each book they just get better and better. Because with this beginning, every bit of the juicy middle and that what the ever living hell ending-how could it not be my favorite?? I mean, I honestly don’t know where to start with the gushing.

Beautiful but heart-stopping, THE ESCAPE was a well told and suspenseful romance. And while Axel and Jasmine get their happily ever after, it was a jaw dropping ending that was the perfect lead in to the next book. And guys, I am eagerly anticipating what is to come with that story. 5 Stars!!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic suspense – Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2022

“If you are looking for a hot and spicy romantic suspense book, I highly recommend this book. It has all the things you could ever want. Good girl offered the opportunity to be bad and then an absolutely scorching path to a HEA. Jasmine and Axel have this push and pull relationship. They both know it’s not what they want it to be, but they just can’t stop. Jasmine gets thrown into the middle of some crappy family dynamics that she knows nothing about. That makes the story that much more interesting. The chemistry between the two is out of this world. I also loved the relationship between Hendrix and Axel and how well they worked together and pushed each other. It was a beautiful display of a sibling relationship. All I can say no is go read this book! Different then the first in many ways but so good!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book Reviewed in the United States on May 19, 2022

“Once again we got an absolutely amazing, super steamy and intense story by this great author. I was hooked from the first page and can’t wait to read more.

The chemistry between Axel and Jasmine was explosive from the start and I just loved them both. Jasmine wanted to find her perfect love and Axel just wanted something temporary to fill his needs and once they shared the perfect kiss it all changed. But Axel made a commitment to never marry and love again because there is too much of a rivalry between families who were once close. He must protect who he cares the most even if it cost him his one true love.

I loved this story so much and now I can’t wait for the next book in the Harper sister’s to come out”.
