Ro’s Book

by Kymber

A few people have asked me if I’ve ever written anything before. In 2013, I wrote a book in the mystery/romance genre. It’s called Secrets in the Blood and it’s under the author name Kymber C. Hawke.

I started writing this as a short story when I was fifteen years old. I toyed with it over the years but I ended up putting it on the back burner. In 2012, I pulled it out, completely reworked it, and decided to look into the possibility of publishing the manuscript. The end result is this book.

After speaking with my editor, she suggested I put a page up on this blog. Please don’t feel obligated to buy my book; I’m putting this page up for those who have asked and if anyone else finds enjoyment in it, that’s terrific.

So, here it is…

secrets in the blood


Secrets have been buried in a steel town for many years. Cassidy loves her life just the way it is. But when mysterious and good looking West arrives, her world is turned upside-down. West carries the secrets of the steel town. Cassidy is attracted to the stranger but a relationship seems impossible as West’s accusations make him appear crazy and bodies start to pile up. No one wants to believe West; can Cassidy let her feelings go and trust him? Who is the killer? How many bodies will pile up before the biggest secret of all is revealed?
