Introducing R.M. ALEXANDER
Veil of Secrecy and The Right One
Release date July 29th
Blurb for Veil of Secrecy (Shadows, #1)
arrives in Sullivan, Montana with simple goals: relocate, settle an estate, and
manage her own antique store. Her parents and friends back home called it
running away. That’s just fine with her.
Rachel’s curiosity leads her into the forest,
and she finds creatures who know more about her ominous heritage than she does.
The creatures only exist in nightmares – grotesque mutants and shapeshifters.
They seek vengeance for hideous crimes in genetic engineering, and Rachel is
the prime target for retribution. While Rachel searches for the truth behind
the family she never knew, a bounty hunter stalks her every move. Only
Leonardo, a figure shrouded in the shadows, offers protection. A were lion with
the perfect blend of human and feline features. Terrifying. Impossible.
When Rachel’s home is ripped apart and a friend
attacked, it’s clear there is no safe haven. She is no longer running from her
past, but trying to survive to make it to her future.
Excerpt from Veil of Secrecy:
“My name is Leonardo. Please, do not come any closer.” The voice changed
locations without stirring a single branch or crackling a single dried leaf.
Rachel turned, scanning her surroundings. “Why won’t you let me see you?”
"Do you need to see to know you are safe? Is it not enough that you are
well after hours of unconsciousness?
Surely, if I intended to harm you, I would have done so already.”
Without menace, the voice changed locations again, now almost directly behind
scrutinizing the fading shadows for an outline, a hand or foot, anything to
provide a hint of identity. “Yes, but then, how can I thank you for saving my

Rachel glanced to
the trees, noticing for the first time the tanagers and morning jays no longer
sang. Only stark silence, a forest frozen with anticipation. Rubbing her arms,
she dropped her gaze. Why does it feel so
hard to breathe?
“You should leave
now. There is nothing to fear in the sun – the Others hunt only at night.”
“The Others?” She
slowly rotated, waiting for an answer or a clue, wondering if she was speaking
to a ghost. She almost smiled at the
absurdity of the thought.

east along the stream. You’ll come across a marked path which will lead you
swelled into her chest. “How do you know where I live?” Watching her, following
her, made him a stalker. A threat.
A charged lull
passed. “Do not come into these forests at night. They are not safe. And I can not guarantee your safety.”

Big dreams take strength and determination.
Cami Lockhart’s dream is on the verge of becoming a reality. Lockhart
Sanctuary, a refuge for abused and confiscated cats, is what Cami has worked
for her entire life. But a dream that big requires a daily commitment. Cami
yearns for someone to share the dream with, and knows everyone in town thinks
Alex is the perfect man for the job. There’s one problem. She wants fireworks
with every kiss, not just a friendship with a hint of something more.
Sometimes what you wish for is closer than you
Alex Reynolds shares Cami’s passion for the sanctuary, and at her head
ranchhand, spends every day helping her dream come true. He longs to tell Cami
she’s held his heart since childhood, but losing a lifetime of friendship is a
big risk to take. Being by Cami’s side at the sanctuary is better than letting
go, but Alex knows someday he’ll want more.
Risk losing everything or fight for the dreams
to come true.
The sanctuary is put
in jeopardy when ignored threats take a painful turn. Cami and Alex must each
chose to stand and fight, or lose everything they dream of.
Excerpt The Right One
“Hey Alex! Which way are we going
with this?” Mason, the youngest of the crew at only twenty-four, interrupted
the tirade of thoughts, the final roll of fencing forcing a heavy lean.

not, but keep that kind of talk for some place else, not here.”
Mason repeated and then fell silent.

felt about her. If she was, she’d be his. Playing the field would help him find
