The Betrayed Trilogy, Book Two
He’s not who he says he is…but neither is she…
Wealthy, privileged, the product of too much money and too little responsibility, Ash Lancaster routinely pretends he’s someone else so he’ll be valued for more than his bank accounts.
Talented, beautiful, tormented by a past choice she deeply regrets, jewelry designer Arianna Sorensen guards her heart and her privacy from the outside world.
When Arianna and Ash meet, the passion is real, though the rest may not be. She thinks he’s a motorcycle-riding photojournalist with nothing but a camera and two saddlebags to his name. He thinks she’s a blue-blooded, orphaned sophisticate with a fat trust fund.
However, lies have a way of catching up and causing their own damage. Fate forces Ash to perform the first selfless act of his life to protect Arianna from being blackmailed about her past. The price? He must walk away and forget about her. Two years later, the threat is gone and Ash returns, determined to win back the woman he’s never forgotten and even more determined to get her to admit what she’s been hiding. He reveals his true identity and pledges a future built on trust and honesty. But Ash expects the truth from her, too. Can Arianna open up to him when the last thirteen years have been built on a lie? And if she doesn’t, will she risk losing him again—this time for good?
Will her actions save her marriage or destroy it?

It’s only when she reveals a painful secret from the past that Cassidy learns to accept the love her husband freely gives.
At long last, Lori “Naughty” Sullivan falls in love in ALWAYS ON MY MIND, the new book in Bella Andre’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling series about the Sullivan family.

He’s convinced himself that all he’ll ever need again is the blue sky, a thousand acres of pasture, and the crashing waves of the ocean. Until one day, Lori Sullivan barges into his life and promptly blows his emotionless and solitary world to shreds, driving him crazy as only a woman nicknamed “Naughty” can. But will Lori be able to convince him that it’s safe to love her…and that forever isn’t actually out of reach?
