Following on from Stephanie's debut romance Rescued (read my review) is Hidden, the story of Colton, McKenzie Ridge's hottest fireman and Megan, McKenzie Ridge's new resident.
Megan only arrived in town a few months ago with her little nephew in tow. Megan opened her florist shop up and settled into life in McKenzie Ridge, but there is something about Megan that has a few residents of McKenzie Ridge watching her closely and it's not just because she is new in town.
My favourite Megan quote from Hidden:
'He was the kind of guy who wanted a white picket fence and a relationship full of forever’s. He already had the white picket fence, but she couldn't be his forever, no matter how tempting he was.'
Megan fell in love with McKenzie Ridge the moment she arrived She fell in lust with Colton the moment she saw him. No, it was more than lust Colton Sparks made her feel, really feel more than any other man ever had and for Megan that was dangerous because she didn't knew how long she would be in McKenzie Ridge.
My favourite Colton quote from Hidden:
'my heart stops at the sight of you. My world stops if you're not in it. Every promise I've made to you, I intend to keep. I have waited so long for you; I will fight to keep you, no matter the circumstances. You never have to worry , that's my job forever.'
What is Megan running from? Can she really trust Colton enough to give up her secrets? Is time running out for Megan?
So many questions, so much intrigue, so many secrets and you will find all of the answers in Hidden, the latest steamy romantic suspense novel by Stephanie St Klaire.
Stephanie St Klaire knows how to write a great steamy romance. I absolutely loved her debut story Rescued and now with the release of Hidden, I am even more in love with her work.
Hidden is more than just a romance. Because it is also set in McKenzie Ridge, reading Hidden was like coming back home. I do read a lot of romances and I have to say, I love a romance series set in a fictional town were each book brings together old favourite characters and new characters. You really get to know the place and the people and if the author is great at writing descriptions you can visualize the town and its residents as you read. With each new book you're adding to your visions of the town and the characters. Stephanie is a great descriptive writer. I also love how she adds a bit of mystery and a few twists and thrills to her stories. For me, this sets them apart from just being about romance.
My review would not be complete without a quote from Granny:
'Well, hot damn! If I knew there was going to be a show today, I would have brought my fan and some dollar bills!” Granny hollered'
I am really excited to read a lot more of her books in the future and in the meantime if you want to visit with Stephanie more join her Facebook group Men of McKenzie Ridge or her fan page.
