Available in eBook here!

Read for FREE August 5, 2016 only!

Contemporary romance filled with extreme suspense and thrills!

Laura Jane Hermanson’s “Bigger the Secrets” is such a tale of unbelievable love and loyalty plus secrets of narcissism that it spent over 400 hours on Amazon Kindle Scout’s Hot & Trending between May 11 & June 10, 2016. There are several reasons why:

1. The novel’s setting is beautiful San Diego’s beaches, Gaslamp District, SDSU, local military and more. A San Diego girl falls hard for a tall handsome and ridiculously rich business man. Ironically, murder binds them together. Journey with them as they explore deep secrets, great passion, thrills and suspense.

2. Although the novel is about a lead character from San Diego, early within the plot, the novel favorably casts a young intelligent rich black athlete who was racially profiled and murdered. His untimely and senseless death triggers every event of suspense & thrills, while at the same time, it inspires all contemporary romantic events which follows. Most insights of police brutality actually come from a black man from MS. who has worked in law enforcement and who knows firsthand the racial tensions which are forever churning underneath the surface. Fact is, although my source has a BS in Criminal Justice, he has been racially profiled several times himself personally as well.

3. “Bigger the Secrets” is steeped in a heavy dose of good old fashion diversity. There’s a mother-in-law who hails from Northern China & a father-in-law who is a native son of France. Thus, the novel positively features such stories about the Great Wall, China’s fascinating silk and amazing places and food, etc., plus French business and fashion success too.

4. The novel was deliberately written with an extra heavy dose of suspense, this is a provocative contemporary romance novel which is designed to entertain an open-minded and forward thinking audience just like all other books on the market within its genre.  However, unlike all the other books out there, “Bigger the Secrets” is designed to attract and hold the attention of both women and men alike.

5. It was written with the concept in mind that this will be a literary work for women to share with men and not have the poor guys feel like jamming their fingers into their ears so deeply that the fingers on their right hand reach all the way through and makes contact with the fingers on their left hand, (LOL).  All kidding aside, I made this a guy friendly book while being especially careful not to alienate the extremely important lady’s audience because after all, ladies are the bread and butter. As such, I loaded this novel with the following assortment of hot topics: sexology and voyeurism, desires of a super model and rich men, drama and unthinkable mysteries.

If you listen closely to the tea leaves within your soul, you should be able to hear your subconscious voice telling you that, if anything at all, this novel feels somewhat like a cross between the classical works of the following genres: First of all, Louis L’Amour, because he inspired me to write fiction that is full of action and adventure. Secondly, E.L. James, because she inspired me to be bold, open, and honest enough to include contemporary sexual content within my writings, and yet, I purposely steered clear of the Fifty Shades of Grey formula. Third, Stephen King, because he inspired me to think, what-if? Therefore, during and after your reading of “Bigger the Secrets” you will find the novel to be filled with action, adventure, boldness, openness, honesty, what-ifs, and--oh of course--great romance too. For mature audiences only. 

Themes: Girl grows up in San Diego and becomes a young supermodel before she transitions into becoming a full-time college student. Ultimately, she reaches the age that she becomes a professional sex therapist--the best in her field. She meets the perfect man who has everything, and by worldly standards, he is everything. However, when it comes to sex and love, though, he is a mess; therefore, she makes it her number one mission in life, to fix him.
Triggering theme: Lead male character’s best friend got shot and killed at the hands of police. The lead male character then uses vast access to wealth and power to exact revenge against all guilty of that murder. In doing so, he orders video recorded murders of enemies, thereby, putting his new girlfriend in the awkward position of having to make the choice of keeping his secrets or alerting the authorities. If not,  that makes his girlfriend accessory after the facts.

Book blurb: A savvy San Diego girl falls hard for a tall handsome and ridiculously affluent businessman whose destiny consists of becoming the sole heir to the throne of his family owned high-end silk international clothing brand. She is a sexologist at the top of her game, and he is a pro athlete. It so happens, the two of them match together like oil and water, yet they can’t walk away. Ironically, murder provides the lithification which binds them together like bedrock. They are propelled predominantly by deep secrets, great passion, and of course, a murdering priest--what else? It has sexual content like “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
