The Secrets You Keep Release

 Release Date: October 11

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a full length, standalone forbidden romance set in her Maddison Kings University world.


As a teenager, my naΓ―ve heart beat for two boys…

Two unattainable, older, forbidden boys. The kind of boys mothers warn their daughters about.

Tristan was the guy everyone wanted… but he was also my older brother’s best friend. Smart, kind, and hot as hell, with a one-way ticket straight to the NFL.

And then there was Knox… my bad-boy stepbrother. Only a year older, he made me feel like I was a silly little girl with a crush… until the first time he kissed me.

The hot, soon-to-be-inked-up gangster from the wrong part of town broke every rule, and shattered hearts… I just never expected one of them to be mine.

All these years later, I can barely remember the shy girl I was back then, back before Knox Bowman burned me.

Now I’m a junior at Maddison Kings University, and they just walked back into my life, throwing my world into a tailspin. Tristan is there for me when things go up in smoke. And Knox is there striking matches, tempting me like a ghost in the night with his darkness.

But I’m all grown up now and I’m ready to go after what I want.

And my damaged heart still wants them both.

Things are different now though.

They’re lying to me… and the secrets about my past have the power to tear my heart in two.

Dear reader,
Do you like your alphas possessive and dirty? Well, you're in luck because you'll find two in The Secrets You Keep. Dive back into my Maddison Kings world with this forbidden mfm romance. After all, why should you have to choose between your brother's best friend and your stepbrother when you could just have both ...

Review: The Secrets You Keep

The Secrets You Keep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As of the last two years, dark romance has been my go-to reads. Therefore this story was perfect for my tastes. It has some of my favorite tropes to make a great book. Step Siblings, Enemies to Lovers, Sibling's Best Friend, Smut and who doesn’t love a praise kink? This story gets a four on the pepper scale. What more do you want me to say? I’m not giving the entire plot away. Go grab the dang book and read it yourself!

Aveke Cover Reveal

Tijan has revealed the gorgeous cover for Aveke!

Releasing: October 25, 2022

I watched him in high school. Knew his reputation. Knew he was wealthy, privileged, and mean.
He ran the show back then, a partier and a player.
Then he came back from college, back to the town I never left. He's different now.
He comes into the bar, and I know his routine.
I know which stool he'll pick.
I know his favorite drink. I know which sports team he'll want on the television screen.
And I watch as he gets hit on.
Sometimes he leaves the bar with a woman. Sometimes he doesn't.
But I'm always there, tending to his drinks. He gives me a smile and a polite nod back.
Then one night, after a long appraising stare, he asked, "Ava, why are you single?"
I leaned in, told him a lie, knowing the truth.
What I didn't know was that my world was about to shatter after that night.

Something else I didn't know: would the man I watched all those years help put my heart back together... or smash it into pieces?

** A 42k novella written as a standalone from two characters in the Fallen Crest/Roussou universe.

His cool stare held me captive, eyes inches from mine. “Is your father going to be a problem?”

My lips parted in surprise.

I’d expected innuendo and manipulation. Such a direct line of questioning hit at the very heart of my worries and unsteadied me.

I shook my head and tried to dart beneath his arm. Conner wedged his body in front of the door, blocking my path completely and bringing us chest to chest. I sucked in a shock of air, then narrowed my eyes defensively.

He wasn’t remotely unsettled by my display of irritation. If anything, his intensity only darkened further in the dimly lit basement hallway—a villainous storm threatening to crumble me to my foundations.

“Protective is one thing. I get the sense this is more, and I think I ought to know if it’s going to be a problem.” His eyes narrowed a fraction, the difference between tension and savage ferocity in one tiny twitch of a muscle. “He ever hurt you?” The words were deadly calm.

Oh God. Why was he doing this?

He needed to stop asking questions, and I needed to stop thinking his questions meant he cared. This was all probably about control and power, not me. I had to shut it down. Now. The best way to accomplish that was not to look like a scared little girl.

Taking a small step back, I opened my clutch and pulled out a pen, then took his hand in mine, palm up. It’s so much wider than I expected. Rough and solid muscle. Hands that knew hard work, like squeezing the life out of an enemy.

I mentally scolded myself to focus and wrote two letters across the full surface of his palm.


Releasing him, I peered up in challenge. Conner stepped forward, placing his leg between my thighs and swiveling us until my back was against the wall next to the door. I didn’t squirm or respond, knowing I couldn’t show doubt or weakness if I was going to shut down his questions.

“Not so fragile as they implied, are you?” he purred above me.

I took his tie in my hand, pulling him slowly lower until our noses almost touched, and shook my head slowly side to side. His hands came to rest on either side of my head as he brought his cheek to mine, his hint of stubble creating a delicious friction against my skin.

“Good, because I’m not remotely gentle.” The words were a black promise, raw and demanding and utterly intoxicating.
