Hidden Motives #1

Behind the door

When the beautiful architect Lara dies at Manhattan lawyer Mark’s hand during a sex game at her summer house in the Hamptons, Carl, Mark’s defense attorney, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Mark has written a detailed account of his steamy, yearlong relationship with Lara.

Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women.

From hot and unusual sex partners to an ambitious mother and interesting and hilarious psychiatric patients, from New York to Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.


Hidden Motives #2

Lara’s Journal

Simone Bennet is on a long vacation, trying to heal from the trauma suffered at the hands of a serial-killer kidnapper. After looking death in the face, she tries to develop a new outlook on life–live in the moment!

Carl, the charming lawyer, is back, asking once more for Simone’s help, this time in analyzing Lara’s Journals, which were discovered by her siblings after her death. In her own words, Lara divulges all her secrets, and a dramatic world of betrayal, passion, and the most unusual sex behaviors are unveiled, exposing the beautiful architect’s troubled life.

As Simone tries to deal with the contents of Lara’s haunting diaries, one of her patients gets himself into a bit of legal trouble, forcing Simone to return early from her vacation. Although she’s happy to be back on her home turf, she finds herself surrounded by a whole new set of problems. A killer is out there, and this time, he seems to be after the people Simone cares about most. Suddenly, people around her are dying, Simone’s one-night-stand-turned-stalker keeps showing up at all the wrong times, her dear friend Edward has a new girlfriend–forcing Simone to analyze her feelings for him and her attraction to Carl.

Lara’s Journal is an emotional rollercoaster filled with old and new funny patients, sex with no boundaries, and unpredictable situations. Strap yourself in, and get ready for one heck of an exciting ride!
