St. Jared’s Memorial Hospital Book 1
A mob boss finding his dead lover alive six years after her death, shocking.
Learning they’ve got a five-year-old son…deadly.
Six years ago Sanai Ward fled her life in Florida when her lover’s infidelity nearly brings her life to a fiery end. Scared and devastated, Sanai starts over from nothing, determined to create a safe and happy life for the child she discovers she’s carrying.
Single parenthood isn’t easy. But the joy of watching her beloved Nazario thrive is more than enough motivation to ignore the ache in her heart for the man that shattered her soul.
Dante De Luca is a passionate man who’s had his life stolen from him. Six years ago he was in love and happy, until his woman was killed in a fire. Sanai was gone. There was nothing left in the ashes but the locket he’d placed around her neck. Too angry to deal with his loss, Dante seeks to make the rest of the world pay for his broken heart by forming an unholy covenant with an unspeakable ally. He knows he’ll live to regret it, but signing away your humanity to the devil seems meaningless when your soul is already gone.
When an accident involving a family member draws Dante to New York, and forces an unexpected meeting between he and Sanai, Dante has to decide what’s more important. His rage and revenge, or the safety of the woman he once loved and the health of their son?
Just when Sanai’s deception is beginning to sting less, Dante is faced with the fallout of his own lies. Will she forgive him? Will they survive them, or will their lives become tragic casualties of the dangerous lies he told?
I love Secret baby plots. Done Right both the Hero and the Heroine have a second chance to build something strong. I ll be honest this my First La Quette Novel and it will not be my last. I loved both Sanai and Dante. I feel if this book was ever an audiobook I would be harder on the talents playing both Sanai and Dante . Overall If you like secret babies Mob Bosses, Alpha males and suspence you found a winner in ” Lies You Tell”.

This bestselling Erotic Romance Author is the 2016 Author of the Year Golden Apple Award Winner, 2015 Swirl Awards Bronze Winner in Romantic Suspense, and 2015 Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award Finalist in Erotic Romance. LaQuette—a native of Brooklyn, New York—spends her time catering to her three distinct personalities: Wife, Mother, and Educator.

She loves hearing from readers and discussing the crazy characters that are running around in her head causing so much trouble.
