Promises are lies dressed up for the party.
Secrets poison the fairest of fairy tales.
Lies stain the purest of loves.
I’ve paid the ultimate price for my choices. The tendrils of those sins bind me to my past. The remnants of my love hold me captive.
Then he walks into my life, and makes me believe in second chances. He awakens feelings in me I know I shouldn’t have. I yearn for a future without guilt. With him, I dream of a love untainted.
Regret is a far-reaching emotion. It barrels through time like a blazing comet, and its path isn’t always straight. No matter what I feel, I cannot bring myself to regret the time I’ve spent with Cain.
But it doesn’t mean I can have him.
My name is Celia Lemaire and this is my story of broken promises.
Storms Over Secrets is the third book in The Over Series, a group of interconnected standalone novels.

“You’d better be careful, Tink. That’s a dangerous thing.” I keep a solemn expression, looking down and shaking my head.
“Is it now?”
“Oh yeah. Do you know what comes after forgetting to be sad?” Her lips twitch as she holds back her smile and lifts her eyebrows in question. “Actually wanting to be happy. You think you’re ready for that?”
She gently taps the fig to her bottom lip, and she blesses me with watery eyes and a smile. “I don’t know, but I think I’d like to try … with you, I want to try so badly,” she whispers, then takes a bite of her fig, her eyes never leaving mine as she chews slowly.
