In Washington, secrets are a commodity best played cold
Julian Baxter and Emiline Woodbridge were perfection together. Everyone knew it, especially his parents, Congressman Edward and Edith Baxter. But Washington politics has no use for happy endings.
Julian's love for Emiline was meant to last but not to survive. To save the Baxter family legacy from destruction, he's forced to break his own heart. They weren't his secrets. They weren't his lies but his sacrifice would force him to chain himself to a woman he barely knows much less likes.
The worst part is that Emiline would never know why he was doing it. He couldn't take the risk that she would try and stop him from executing his plan or, worse yet, forgive him. The cut had to be clean and cruel enough that he would hate himself more than she ever would. Julian Baxter's world darkened the day he walked away from the only woman he would ever love to the woman who would become his everlasting curse.

About the Author
Palessa started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more.
It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with New York Times, USA Today bestselling author Sable Hunter(http://amzn.to/1OzcNA6) to start the juices flowing again.
After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa's first published fiction book with Beau Coup Publishing. She considers herself just a storyteller that sees no reason to shy away from the juicier romantic elements. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.
