Giveaway & Review - A Perfect Secret by Donna Hatch

Two Giveaways! International Giveaway for an ebook copy & US only Giveaway for a paperback copy.

Desperate to protect her father from trial and death, Genevieve breaks off her engagement with Christian Amesbury and marries a blackmailer. After a year of marriage, she flees her husband's violent domination only to have fate bring her back to Christian. Just when she thinks she's started a new life of safety and solitude, her husband tracks her down, stalks her, and threatens everyone she loves.
Still brokenhearted over Genevieve's betrayal a year ago, Christian can't believe she's come back into his life--and worse, that she's done it on the anniversary of his brother's death, a death that haunts him. Though tempted to throw her back into the river where he found her, he can't leave her at the mercy of the terrifying man she married.
When her husband torments Genevieve and puts the Amesbury family in danger, Christian will do anything to protect those he loves...anything except give Genevieve another chance to break his heart.

Tifferz Review~
A Perfect Secret is filled with many secrets. Christian has them and so does the lovely Genevieve and her father as well. Love, loss, guilt and heartbreak. Christian rescues a women trying to kill herself and he is shocked and confused at who he finds. The women who broke his heart. Genevieve has endured much at the hand of her husband. Christian is a gentleman and feels the need to help Genevieve. A plan is set in motion and Christian reminds himself frequently that Genevieve is not for him. That she jilted him. A trip to the Scottish border to see Christian’s sister Rachel proves enlightening. Rachel and Genevieve become fast friends. Genevieve becomes a big help to Rachel with her work. Rachel is 32 and unwed. She loves science and has a quick mind and tongue. I really like her. Secret messages are delivered to Genevieve that are positively frightening. So, she finally tells Christian as she feels his life and Rachel’s life are in danger. Another plan is made and this time Christian asks Grant his older brother for help. This is a hard thing for Christian to do, but very necessary. Lord Wickburgh is a mad man and lives are lost and ticks are played. So, will Christian be able to protect Genevieve from her crazy husband? Will they be able to be together? Will all the secrets come out? Will they bring them closer together or tear them apart? Read it to find out. You will be happy you did. This is another brilliant story by Donna Hatch. I found the plot intriguing and I could not stop reading as I had to see how things played out. I was thrilled with all the surprises throughout the story but especially the surprises at the end. A thrilling story that I would recommend to anyone who loves romance.
Just FYI~ This has no swearing or sexual situations.

Chlez Review~
I was SO excited to read this story.  Ms. Hatch has written a wonderful continuation of the Amesbury family.  While this is book 3 in the Rogue Hearts series it can easily stand alone.  As we have met each of the boys, Cole, Jared, Grant and of course Christian, Christian has always been known as the "Perfectly Perfect Christian", so the title is most fitting.  I loved how Christian's story unfolded and was thrilled at the early arrival of Cole and his wife Alicia.   The sisters have been mostly in the background of the previous stories so I welcomed and enjoyed Rachel having such a large part in Christian's story.  I love how these brothers come to each others aid so quickly when the challenges arise.   If you have read either of the books in the series make sure you pick up the 3rd, and I am anxiously looking forward to Grant's story. 

Jewelz Review~
I absolutely LOVED A Perfect Secret! I'll admit - I'm a Donna Hatch fan. I fell in love with the Amesbury brothers when I read her first book: The Stranger She Married and then with the second book The Guise of a Gentleman I was hooked. And I waited, and waited for the next book int he Rogue Hearts Series. Rather impatiently  I might add. Nonetheless, I was not disappointed when Christian's story was finally downloaded to my iPad and I began reading.

Christian Amesbury has it rough. His whole life he's been teased and tormented by his older brothers for being "Perfectly Perfect Christian". How is a rough & tumble boy - and then adebonaire young man - supposed to make it in the world if he's known as "perfectly perfect Christian"? The plight of being the youngest brother! In all seriousness, he does have a secret and he has a heavy weight that he carries with him. Like so many people - Christian seems to have it all, but in reality he carries a heavy burden than not many people know about or see.

Sweet Genevieve Marshall has won the heart of Christian Amesbury, but fate has a way of messing up our best-laid plans. Enter Lord Wickburgh - a more evil individual I can't quite imagine. After a year of marriage to Lord Wickburgh Genevieve is no longer the sweet, vivacious young woman Christian fell in love with. His heart is still broken and he intends to protect it - but he cannot help but be compelled to rescue the young woman he once loved.

All the Amesbury brothers are back - as they should be. These brothers love and support one another despite their differences. And the have such fun while doing it! I just love how Cole and Jared insist on being part of the adventure. And let me just take a moment to say that I LOVE GRANT! I needed his story a few years ago - that man is so intriguing!

So - grab a copy of A Perfect Secret - now! You will not be disappointed. And if you haven't read the first two books in the series, grab them too. This book can be read without having read the first two books, but you'll want to read them all - they are that good!

FYI - this is a clean read
Honest disclosure - we received copies of this book from the author in echange for our honest reviews.
