Secrets of Those That Are

Katelynn Anthony is a quirky and beautiful Southern Belle, working as a registered nurse in Silver Cove Retirement Center in Hidden Beach on the coast of New York. There she meets the elderly Lera McConnell, a sweet lady she has taken a liking to. Though Katelynn cares deeply for all her charges, Ms. Lera, as she calls her, holds a special place in the Southern Belles heart. They spend many nights talking about Ms. Leras past, about her life as a child, and as a young woman in love. The love of Ms. Leras life, Navar, her guardian, the lord of Go-Barth Castle, a knight of old, was a vampire who was hundreds of years older than she.

While listening to the story of Ms. Leras life, the young nurse is captivated by what she thinks is an entertaining story. Little does Katelynn know that the things told to her by Ms. Lera are neither fictional nor flights of fancy. There is purpose in Ms. Lera telling Katelynn her history because she knows in her heart that she has found the perfect keeper for her secrets. All the while, evil lurks around both women because of the power in the secrets that Ms. Lera possesses and is passing to Katelynn; a cure for the vampire virus.

About the Author

The author, Carly Robbins, was visiting at the rest home where her mother was taking physical therapy. As they walked down the hall it occurred to Carly that some of the wonderful residents living within these walls may have lived fascinating lives. This is where the alluring tale of love, hope, and orchids came to life. Carly has never believed in a world without hope, be it fictional or real. One of the things that always bothered her about vampire stories was the fact that they lost their soul and all hope through no fault of their own.

Great story, amazing characters and wonderful Author.

I absolutely loved this book. Not your typical vampire story. Carly describes the characters so well you feel you know them. So much that you miss them when the book has been read. I had the worst time putting the book down. Could not wait until the second one came out. Now I can't wait until the third one.

A new book for vampire enthusiasts.

Great story and surprising new slant to the vampire. Charecters are strong, vampires are romantic and frightening. Can't wait to read the next book.

A new twist on an old tale. I loved the simplistic approach and the tour that Carly gives of an often violent realm yet she guides you through unscaved. (aka unscathed) Loved the book!

Love it!

While taking a vacation in the Smokey mountains, I found this book in a boutique and intrigued by the title, so much so that I decided to buy it. After finding out some information about it I also had the chance to meet the lovely author, Mrs. Carly Robbins. I loved this book! It had a beautiful story line that had me captivated and, at times, in tears. I definitely will be waiting for the next book and to see what unfolds with Katelynn and Mr. Hottie aka Spider-Man. ;)

Beautifully written. The author has the uncanny knack of pulling you into the story where you'll want to stay until the very end of the book. All this with a southern flair, has made this a "must read" for anyone. I can't wait for the next book to be published.
