SECRETS Vol. 3 by Ella Steele is Out Today!

SECRETS VOL. 3 by Ella Steele was released today!


“When Anna admits she’s falling for Cole she can’t believe his response. He pushes her away with an excuse that seems too flimsy to be real. Crushed, Anna continues working at Cole’s Long Island studio, but she can’t stop thinking about him. It isn’t until Anna is called into the dean’s office that the real trouble starts. To make matters worse, Edward keeps popping up at the worst times reminding her of everything she wants to forget.”

Genre: Mature YA/ New Adult

SECRETS VOL. 4 will be released Fall 2012.

Dude, what the heck is Mature YA/ New Adult? It means that it’s more mature than YA (like 12-yr-olds shouldn’t read it) but not in the general adult mass of books. The heroine in the SECRETS series is a 22 year old college student named Anna Lamore. It’s a coming of age love story for people who like the pacing of YA books, but want hotter romance than YA typically offers. So to sum up, this is a steamy read not for little kids.

Nook & Kobo links coming soon. Paperback to follow.

Thank you to all my awesome fans who wanted something a little hotter than my YA books.  And I know I’ve said it already, but SCANDALOUS is not a kid book.  It’s a hot, sexy adult romance with sexual content inappropriate for younger readers.  That’s why my adult books are under a pen name.  Anything by Ella Steele is a mature book with adult content.

And yes, the woman on the cover has no bodice on–that’s paint!

Description: “Millionaire Jack Gray earned his fortune creating erotic art for discerning clientele. He doesn’t use a brush to depict these hauntingly beautiful portraits—he uses bare skin. A sterling reputation is the only thing standing between Jack and poverty as he skirts the thin line between fine art and cheap sensationalism. To ensure that his character remains beyond reproach, an assistant observes his sessions.

While interviewing for a new assistant, Jack hears her voice—Abby Tyndale—the girl who got away. The last time Jack saw her was over a decade ago. After years of romantic tension she had nearly kissed him, but then disappeared without a trace. He hasn’t seen her since. Until now. When he learns that his lost love joined the clergy after she fled to West Texas, his heart sinks. She’s forbidden, forever set apart by her vows.

Jack’s life quickly spins out of control as Abby grows closer to him, and worsens when his client list is stolen. The financial blow alone is damning, but it’s the scandal brewing beneath the surface that he fears the most. Jack and Abby’s livelihoods rely on their reputations. A single scandal will destroy them both. While fearing a contrived scandal, they have courted a very real one as their romance reignites.

This erotic romance is an addictive tease that will leave you breathless and begging for more.”
