Secretly by Talya Blaine cover reveal

And heeeeere it is!

Secretly (Transformation Series Book 2) releases in just two weeks, on February 28th, and I'm so excited to show you the cover! THANK YOU to everyone participating in the reveal! 🙏🎉

I'm biased of course, but I love it, and it fits this story so, so well.

A 🏆 Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize quarter-finalist:

The storyline here is more than just the typical "will they or won't they" scenario....The chemistry between Quinn and Jonathan runs the show, but the novel digs into deeper issues, too...
Hot and deliciously steamy, Secretly will tantalize and captivate readers.

Unquenchable chemistry. The rare gift of a second chance. Choices that could destroy it all.

Quinn and Jonathan’s erotic journey continues as sizzling tension tests their “friends for now” pact.

After a desperate call interrupts a failed platonic dinner—and a water main break renders Quinn homeless—she’s left with little choice: Take Jonathan up on his just-friends-no-benefits offer to share his apartment.

But getting closer? A romantic relationship? Not an option. Even after that one impulsive and magical but heartbreaking kiss.

Damn, that kiss. It tells Jonathan all he needs to know about Quinn’s feelings and only deepens his desire to build a life with her. Until her defensive walls throw him back into reality. The reality in which his sweet gig as Spice of Life’s travel show host is on the line. The reality in which he can’t fully accept Quinn’s involvement at Octavia’s dungeon. The reality in which the woman he adores is still wrestling with the past—and not ready to hear the three words he needs to say.

The second novel in the Transformation Series, Secretly turns up the heat: A secret trip to a Parisian chateau dungeon, a last-minute wedding to plan, a bold, perhaps impulsive, career decision. Quinn and Jonathan each make choices that alter the course of their lives. Can they forge a shared future?

A story about discovery and desire, friendship and boundaries, freedom and risk. About the delicate balance between intimacy and autonomy. About the struggle to love again and how we choose to live the second chapter of our lives.

Friends to lovers, slow burn, second chance, fish out of water—readers will click with the themes in this edgy contemporary romance. Features characters over 40 and a sexy beta hero. Mature themes, strong language, kink, dungeon and steamy open-door bedroom scenes.

The books in the Transformation Series are best read in order. Which means you'll want to read Silently (Book 1) first. If you're a reviewer, you can get an ARC (advance review copy) of Silently from NetGalley or BookSirens.

Silently is also available on major online book retailers in paperback and ebook.

ARCs for Secretly (Book 2) coming very soon. Add your email to my list to be notified.

Secretly releases on February 28, 2023, in ebook and paperback (see retailers). Ebook available for preorder now.

Thanks again to everyone who participated! 🙏🎉
