About Secret Desire
The problem with twins is that they look so much alike…
By day, Claire Robertson is a staff writer for a small publication in Seattle. But when the lights go down, she writes sizzling and oh-so-naughty erotica. She keeps these stories safely tucked away, hiding her secret fantasies of her hero, Dustin Murray. The man who stole her heart six years ago. And then jumped into bed with her twin sister.
Dustin never forgot Claire, or her twin sister’s lies that tricked him into sleeping with her. Nor has he forgotten that her sister’s threats have kept him silent for six years and cost him the woman he loved. Now that Claire’s returned home, Dustin isn’t about to lose her again. But it’ll be another thing to convince Claire he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to win her back.
When Claire accidentally sends the wrong story to her editor, things really heat up. With hot the new black in publishing, her editor thinks he’s struck gold and queues the story for publication. The last thing Claire needs is for everyone to learn that she’s got secrets of her own…

Meet Dustin Murray
As an extra special treat, Susan has left us with an interview with her desirable hero, Dustin Murray.
Dustin, Why are you back in Mill Spring?
I returned when I sold my company’s cellphone technology licenses. I’m required to provide consultation services for a year. Limits my motocross riding because extreme sports aren’t covered by the required life insurance policy as part of the patent sale.
Do you plan on returning to Palo Alto?
I’ve a condo there that will be sold if Claire isn’t interested in living there.
What’s it like with a girl friend who write erotica?
Definitely a turn on. She reads to me and it’s all I can do from not throwing her down, and giving her something to think about. But seriously, I told her I’m proud of her. The people with problems aren’t in her corner and not to worry. Without getting too personal, what happened with Fran way back in high school? I made the mistake of asking her about Claire. Then the shit hit the fan. Fran came on to me and I wasn’t interested. She asked what was so special about Claire. Her own sister. That pretty much did it. After that, it got worse. She had some of her friends invite me over and I got drunk. Afterwards, I don’t remember much except waking up next to her. She was a mess. Like she’d been in fight and said I did that to her. She said either act the part of her boyfriend or she’d go to her father. Eventually, I found out about Fran and what was going on in town. It was a nightmare for all of us, but Claire never knew the truth until I told her the part that mattered.
Why didn’t you ever go after Claire when she left?
She’d never forgive me. At least that’s what I thought. I didn’t want to hurt her further, not when the truth was so awful. I knew eventually I see her again. What do you see happening between you and Claire in the future? Marriage. I’m asking her but giving her a chance to get over grieving. Then I fully intend to ask her.
