"Legend Unleashed" (Keeping Secrets, Book 1) by M. Latimer-Ridley
(Young Adult, Urban Fantasy genre)
Book trailer: [link]

"When an infamous criminal is unleashed from his prison, it has consequences for everyone in Carwick. Temperance Levinthal in particular…

Temperance is satisfied with her ordinary life. Dealing with her eccentric, childlike parents is all the excitement she needs. That changes when Alastair Byron returns home.

After a failed matchmaking attempt by her father, sparks fly between her and Alastair-just not the good kind.

They are forced together though, when they are implicated in a grisly murder. Their search for the truth leads them to a secret world beneath Carwick, filled with werewolves, wizards and other magical faey.

However, uncovering the truth is far more dangerous than they’d ever imagined.

There are secrets within secrets.

Even Alastair may be more than he seems."


We just wanted to give a massive thank you to everyone for all the fantastic comments, feedback and favourites we've gotten on our chapters over the last few uploads. We've loved them all! We hope we created a few squee-worthy moments and that everyone has enjoyed these preview chapters.

If you're interested in reading more about what happens to Temperance, Alastair and anyone they may meet :D

We'll definitely be sharing some of our other writing with you in the future, so hopefully you'll like to read that too!
