Synopsis for Kiss & Tell- Closed doors don’t always keep secrets...
Alexis Woodford fled Charlotte, NC, stripping herself of mistakes and regrets holding her captive from the drama-free life she longed for. With her skeletons tucked discreetly in the confines of her new home on Bald Head Island, Alexis forges on, guilt free…and smitten with her neighbor – scrumptious actor Roan Carter.
Impossibly addicted to the benefits of bachelor life on Bald Head’s beachfront community, Roan Carter inexplicably finds himself caught up in monogamy with feisty Alexis, quickly romancing and pledging forever to his stunning bride in a seaside wedding void of the Hollywood frills he left behind. But when his past crashes the honeymoon, will Roan lose the love of his life forever…or will it be Alexis’s own indiscretions which pull them apart?

About her book:
Sometimes you don’t choose the streets, the streets choose you. The streets had been Omari “O” Sullivan’s playground since he was a teenager. Loyalty meant everything to him, so he kept his circle small. That along with his ruthless behavior is what kept him on top. Shit gets real for O and his crew when they go to war against an unsuspected kingpin. Can the crew survive when boundaries are crossed and shots are fired? O quickly learns the lesson that all money ain’t good money, and the debt you repay could be with blood.
