by
PE Kavanagh

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A grieving heiress.

A celebrity psychologist.
A decade of friendship.
UNDONE
BY ONE BOLD MOVE.

When Camille first met Jackson she was too young. 
Too innocent. 
Too traumatized.

Friendship s less than what she wanted, but all she could handle.

Ten years later and she’s a different woman. Strong, successful, brave. 

At exactly the wrong moment, one bold move threatens everything.
The safe harbor of Jackson’s family.
The unconditional commitment of his friendship.
The collection of secrets she never knew existed,

Claims and confessions come hard and fast as Jackson and Camille navigate
all that has never been said. 

Each step they take, closer to the truth and each other, demands another
layer of secrets must fall.

COLLECTING SECRETS is a steamy standalone contemporary romance with no
cliffhanger. You will meet characters who will reappear throughout
the series.





Coming Home
Friends & Lovers Book 2

For Ramona Barrett, a lot has happened in fifteen years.

Her maniacal grandfather finally died.
Her father sobered up and got his life in order.
She built an enviable life based on righting her family’s wrongs.
And the chubby, awkward boy who used to be her best friend is now a man
she hardly recognizes. 

Lucas Winston recovered from his law-school fiasco and is now the hottest
chef in DC. The elite clamor for a seat in his restaurant, the
power-hungry vie for connections to his powerful family, and an old
friend demands a forgotten promise be honored. Everyone wants a piece
of him.

Except Ramona. She can’t see that he’s never stopped loving her. That
they are meant to be together. Even if he is about to marry someone else.

If you’re looking for smart, sexy characters in a layered,
emotionally-gripping story, Coming Home will take you there. 

This my, standalone contemporary romance has no cliffhanger, but
includes characters you will meet throughout the series.




COLLECTING SECRETS Excerpt

This was not the first time Camille had looked foolish, but it might have been the first time she didn’t care. Unable to find her room key or hold back the torrent of tears, she plunked down onto the ugly hotel carpet in front of her door and sobbed, loud and hard. With nothing but the back of her hand to wipe away the tears and snot, the scene quickly escalated from tragic to gruesome.

Heartbreak was no stranger. But this break-up was beyond humiliating. How dare he? She had given him everything and he claimed it wasn’t enough. He’d stood in the cold marble lobby and yelled at her. Accused her of cheating. In front of everyone.

Humiliation mingled with anger and desperation, halting any effort to pull herself together. They’d flown across the country to attend this wedding and now she’d be conspicuously dateless in a room full of happy couples. She tried to take a breath and choked on a new wave of tears.

A soft crush of footsteps stopped in front of her, but Camille had no interest in lifting her head off her knees to look.

“Hey, Cam. What’s wrong?”

She knew that voice, as well as the gentle stroke of his hand in her hair.

“Camille. You’re scaring me. What’s going on?”

His worry pierced through her pain and, with great effort, she tilted her head up to see her best friend’s face inches from hers.

His eyes flashed to fear. “Camille! What happened? Are you okay? Talk to me!”

It took so much energy to form words. “Calm down, Jack. I'm okay.”

“You don’t look okay. Did something happen with Charlie? Where is he?”

The questions were coming too fast for Camille’s throbbing, blurry head. “He dumped me.” There, she said it. Out loud.



PE Kavanagh, Author
I believe that everything we experience exists as a story within us. 


My journey as a writer includes the award-winning poem I penned at the
ripe old age of seven, decades of hiding and doubt, and then finally…
finally!... realizing that art needs to be shared. Storytelling is
part of my heritage, even though I denied it for so long. The stories
I created - true and imaginary - have saved me numerous times.

My characters come to me, like old friends excited to tell me what's new. 
They represent the world I see and the world I want to see.

More than anything, I care about recovery from life’s setbacks…
getting back on your feet after life has brought you to your knees…
and my characters fight the hard fight for the lives they know are
waiting for them.

I’ve drawn my inspiration from the many flavors of my life experience.
Once a sad, shy girl, I’ve also been an MIT-trained engineer,
biotech executive, professional dancer, yoga teacher and business
owner, school founder, spiritual counselor, entrepreneur, and author. 

And I own a magic wand that I’m certain will work one day.

When I’m not typing, furiously trying to capture the stories that pour
from me, you can find me loving my people to excess, globe-trotting
to the next great adventure, and sporting bright red lips as a tango
diva. And of course on my digital homes: pekavanagh.com and
boldsoulcoaching.com.
