Release: SECRETS AND RUIN (Jacky Leon 9)

Finally. It’s finally here.

Well, it’s been out for about 24 hours, but I’m finally getting to the blog. And the newsletter right after this.

I’m catching up, promise!

Onward to why we’re all here:

SECRETS AND RUIN!

JACKY LEON BOOK 9!

books2read.com/JackyLeon9

Dirk, my werewolf nephew, is going home.

Sending Dirk back to his father is complicated, but I have to do it. Even if it’s for a short time, I know that father and son need to talk about what’s changed between them. They need to talk about what the future holds for both of them. One year. That was how long we wanted to keep his new status as a werewolf as secret as possible, before we involved the family. That one year is up, and now, it’s time to face the music. Niko is only the start.

However, secrets are insidious things. They can stay hidden for decades, even centuries. Dirk and I kept have been keeping several, but we’re not the only ones. When too many secrets finally come to light, we’ll be left standing in the ruins of more than one family.

It’s too late to stop this, but I’m Jacky Leon and I’ll be damned if the secrets of generations past ruin the family I’m building in the present.

Secrets and Ruin, Jacky Leon Book 9

I’m so excited to have this book in the wild for everyone. It was hell to get out, 2 delays just like Tainted Blood (Everly Abbott 3), but it’s out now.

You might notice… there’s no active preorders going on right now! Why is that? Well, first I need to ask Amazon if I can do more preorders. See, when an author publishing through Amazon needs to delay a book more than once (for a maximum of… twice, and only 30 days per delay), they revoke preorder privileges for 1 year. I can (and will) ask for those back, as I get back on proper schedule.
But also, I don’t plan on posting any preorders until I have a few first drafts done. So, it could be a bit of a turnaround to get to that. A couple months. Keep an eye out, but the hope is that I get my preorders back, have some books finished and preorders will go up before the end of May.

So, with all that said, I hope you enjoy Secrets and Ruin!

I loved the book! Completely worth the wait. I downloaded with kindle unlimited and read it then bought it. You get paid for both, right?

I just finished reading this and I’ve always been meaning to write/post this but I have great admiration for the imagintion of authors and putting their work out there; taking the ordinary and turning it into something extraorrdinary. The ideas, character development and world building are excellent.

Families are complicated and like Anne Bishop wrote in the Black Jewels series: while this body can trace its bloodline back to you, it doesn’t make you family, you do an exemplary job of highlighting this in your books. Family is more than blood. While we can’t choose who you are related to, you can choose you let into your life.

Thank you for another excellent read and further insights into the world of the Tribunal 🙂

Just finished another great story in Jacky’s life. Thank you for a wonderful world! I really love all your series, though Jacky’s world is my current favorite from reading this book! Again thank you for making this happen, even when faced with some personal struggles.

Thank you! Amazing book. Loved it. Your challenges come through I’m the depth of the characters but the hope she finds was so good. I hope you are also finding a positive way forward.

I’m not an author so don’t really understand why pre orders are needed? Would it reduce your stress to not have a schedule and it goes up when it’s done? Ilona andrews have stopped mentioning what they are working on and when it will be released until its done and I can totally see why.

Anyway, I hope you find your joy, healing and a pathway through Amazon that works for you. I’ve finished it on Kindle unlimited but now off to buy it. So good. Just waiting for them to approve my 5 star review.

I was waiting with bated breath for this book and it did not disappoint me. 5 stars! Fantastic book.

I have kindle unlimited, but I bought the book because I want to keep it. I did the same with all the others. Now, I am waiting for the audiobook. I have bought all the previous books in kindle and audio format.

Thank you so much for this chapter of Jacky’s adventure. I am already looking forward to the next one.

Just finished binge reading this book as this is one of my favorite series of all time. I’m sorry to hear about all of your struggles but am very grateful that you are still writing your wonderful books for us. I have a chronic illness and reading is my main outlet. If there is anything your readers can do to help you please let us know. I’ve read some of your other series as well and thoroughly enjoyed them. ❤

I just finished it. Again a very good story with the characters to love and admire. It was fascinating to have Jacky stand on her own, without leaning on Heath for moral support. Thabk xou.

I have just downloaded my copy..I’m hoarding it for a bit..because I’ll finish it off in one sitting and then there won’t be any to read immediately after 🙂
This world you’ve created is absolutely wonderful…thank you so much. I have enjoyed every minute of reading and rereading them.

I arrived late to the party. Loved the chance to see Jacky building tighter bonds with her boys. It’s heartwarming to see the familiar “all in” support from Landon.
And what a great and unexpected ending! Big things await Jacky and her siblings after this! Another display of family stepping up and making things right.

Beautifully done! I’m looking forward to the next adventure.
