Mari Denae Reawakened Secrets

Author Mari Denae talks about secrets or the unknown.

One of the main topics in Reawakened Secrets, to be released on October 26th, is secrets or the unknown. Here is some bonus material from the view point of the heroine, Claire Brown.

My entire life has revolved around secrets, questions… the unknown. I was unwanted, deserted by my sperm donor before I was even born. Unknown identity.

I grew up in the servant’s quarters at Haven Hill. My only friends were Alice Sinclair and Jackson Montgomery. As children of old money, they were born and bred to be king and queen of the affluent circle I was forced to tolerate. Unknown future.

For a girl with a genius IQ, I’ve been really stupid. Stupid enough to fall in love with Jackson, and desperate enough to hide it from Alice even though she loved him too. Then, one moment of weakness left Alice in a coma and drove Jackson to abandon me without even so much as a fucking goodbye. I’ve had radio silence from both of them for the past decade. Unknown ending?

Over the years, I’ve figured out a few things, but never Jackson. So when he calls out of nowhere to say Alice is awake. My first reaction is relief. A close second is terror. He says she can’t remember anything that happened ten years ago, but I’ve never had the benefit of forgetting—and it’s all because Jackson still has an unshakeable hold on my heart.

I don’t know what will happen next, but there’s no way it’s going to be good. I have way too many secrets and no hope of keeping them hidden much longer. With Jackson and I one eye fuck away from hooking up again, I’m that much closer to destroying the new life I’ve built for myself. The only thing I know for sure is…

Some secrets should never be kept, and nothing stays hidden forever.

Publication date: October 26th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Some secrets should never be kept…

Growing up in the servants’ quarters at Haven Hill, Claire Brown was a poor outcast, living in a world of money and privilege. Her only solace was best friend, Alice Sinclair, and secret desire, Jackson Montgomery. Rich and connected, they were perfect in every way and perfect for each other.

Still, Claire was foolish enough to fall in love with Jackson, and desperate enough to hide it. When Alice found out, there was a terrible accident that left her in a coma. Jackson disappeared, leaving New Haven without even saying good-bye.

Ten years later, Claire has managed to build a life without them. So when Jackson calls out of nowhere to say Alice is awake, Claire’s first thought is Thank God. Her second? I’m screwed. Lusting after Jackson destroyed her. It’s nothing compared to what she’s hiding now.

But nothing stays hidden forever.

Reawakened Secrets is part one of Jackson and Claire’s story.

Part 2, Reawakened Sins and Part 3, Reawakened Seduction will be released early next year.  To be the first to get information on deals, teasers, excerpts, bonus scenes and release dates, connect with the author on Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads.

About Mari

My name is Mari Denae Mari D icon
I am a married mother of three and publishing my first novel is a dream come true. As the nerd that went to bed with a flash light to read the books I swiped from my mom’s room, I have always been an avid book lover. My favorites are hot, alpha male heroes (think Kristen Ashley), suspenseful, romantic thrillers (think Sandra Brown) and poignant, sweet love stories (think Abbi Glines or Colleen Hoover). My plan was always to be a writer of some sort, but somehow real life responsibilities got in the way. Now, I am an accountant with a night time writing obsession.

One Saturday afternoon, I took my girls to see the latest teenage movie. Four days later, I had read all four Twilight books. I was inspired by the innocent romance and ‘Edward Cullen’ (don’t judge). Once I found my way to Fifty Shades of Grey, I was a complete goner. All my spare time was spent reading, writing or blogging. After version one million, five hundred and fifty five of my series Reawakened , I’m finally ready to share it and hope that someone enjoys reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. This one’s for my mother. I hope she’s looking down proud because I finally finished what I started.
