Description

Brooding, sexy, restaurant owner, Michael Rossi is determined to unravel the mystery behind the lady in the red coat. One secret can speak a thousand truths. Michael Rossi has an extraordinary talent. Every day, he sets out with his grandfather's camera to capture incredible images like the ones his Nonno used to take in Italy. His girlfriend recently left him with a broken heart and he's grateful for the distraction. One day, he sees through his lens, a beautiful woman kneeling at a headstone. He quietly snaps her picture and retreats to his two-bedroom home in the city, developing the film in his dark room. He returns to the cemetery daily and every day, the woman is also there. Finally, one day, Michael gathers the courage to approach her. It doesn't take them long to fall in love. Nicole harbors a secret, however. A secret that she is ashamed of and that has changed her in ways she can't describe. If spoken, it would threaten the love she shares with Michael. Ultimately, Michael becomes aware that something isn't right. The words unspoken between them, become the most powerful of all.

Excerpt

His male instinct caused him to look behind him to admire her lithe, curvaceous body. He turned back around quickly, unwilling to insult her again. Yet, the woman was scaring him. She blew hot and cold and back again and now she was in his home, relaying a story he would otherwise only see in his nightmares and something was still not right. Stevie Phelps’ story didn’t really explain anything. Despite it all, he was attracted to her. Her smile earlier, lit up the dark room, and, his heart.

About The Author

Despite being a multi-genre author, I enjoy writing dark stories the most. There's something hauntingly beautiful about the dark and mysterious side of life.
