Book Description

Jena was always ‘the good Piermont twin’, preferring to nurse others rather than being in the limelight.

Seducing her alltime crush was the bravest and most outrageous thing she’s ever done…and it brought her two adorable baby girls. So telling the unsuspecting father will be tough. But how will he react to her most heartbreaking secret yet?

Beyond the Spotlight Uncovering the real Piermont sisters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Sensitively written. 26 April 2013
By Lucee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a touching read. Expecting it to be a pure romance, I was impressed by the important and rarely highlighted topic it covers of hereditary breast cancer. This serious issue is dealt with so well, I would recommend this book to people in that situation.

The romance between Jena and Justin is sweet and believable, with Jena turning out far stronger than I originally expected her to be. She was a character that developed throughout the course of the book, and her distress at the end is sensitively shown. There are few romance books that are brave enough to have their main character dealing with the dreaded medical drains and description was so accurate, it made me wince!

A brilliant read that has been well researched and beautifully written.

Secrets of a Shy Socialite (Mills & Boon Medical) (Beyond the Spotlight... - Book 2)
Craving Her Soldier's Touch / Secrets of a Shy Socialite (Mills & Boon Medical)
Secrets of a Shy Socialite (Mills & Boon Hardback Medical)

SECRETS OF A SHY SOCIALITE by author Wendy S. Marcus is a Mills & Boon Medical and Harlequin Medical romance release for January 2013.

Jena Piermont came back with twin babies, after a brief time away. Yet she wouldn't say who the babies' dad was.

After much soul searching she told the twin's father that he had fathered her adorable daughters. He was shocked, but why? What had he expected?

Then he decided to do the right thing. But when Jaci decides to tell him her other secrets, would he still be around for her and her daughters?

SECRETS OF A SHY SOCIALITE is a heart wrenching romance. Wendy S. Marcus takes us to unexpected depths of human relationship and trust. She brings this powerful story of genetic breast cancer, elective mastectomy and successive recovery from the surgery with realistic imaginary. I cried with Jena and laughed with her. I went off on an emotional roller coaster with her, and when she wrote letters to her daughters expecting to die, I couldn't help sobbing. This was the most powerfully emotional story I read in a long time. Fast paced and filled with passion and sensuality as well.

All lovers of medical romance will definitely love this book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars!!!! 19 Sept. 2014
By Buttercup - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely wonderful!!! I loved this story from the first page to the last. The characters were engaging and I felt emotionally connected to both the entire time. Their actions and feelings were logical and progressed at a realistic pace. I smiled with each new experience or revelation that brought Justin closer and closer to realizing his feelings for Jena. The author handled the topic of a serious medical issue with delicacy and I was impressed with her taking on such a difficult topic in a romance novel. Kudos to Wendy Marcus. Well done!

It is rare that I read a book where there is nothing that I can give constructive feedback on.

I highly recommend this book.

I absolutely love Wendy Marcus books. I love the story about these unlikely two and the Breast Cancer was so touching how it was dealt with. It was written so realistically and I just hated when it ended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, sexy, heartwarming 12 Mar. 2013
By Amy (So Many Reads) - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Wendy really knows how to captivate her audience in her stories. They are heartbreaking, sweet and sexy all at the same time. She does a fantastic job of moving the plot along at a great pace. I was disappointed when the story was over because it seemed to fly by. In Secrets of a Shy Socialite we learn about Jena Piermont, the so-called shy, obdient twin to her sister Jaci, the wild, independent one. Jena has her secrets and boy do we learn she is not all that shy or obedient sometimes.

Justin is the love of Jena's life. She would do anything for him and needs to share the news about their twin daughters with him, which is one of the reasons she comes back home. The party boy Justin, who never plans to settle down, is quite shocked by the news but is going to do well by his daughters and Jena. We get to watch how Jena and Justin lean on each other for help with new parenting as well as some other, bigger issues that will change their lives. Some of my favorite parts were reading about Justin trying to change the twins' diapers and learning what Jena was like as a teenager.

The physical chemistry between Justin and Jena was hot. They can't deny the attraction they have for each other, even if they think it will complicate things. I love the way Wendy writes an intimate scene by giving just enough details without going too far. They are very appropriate for the story and the characters. The scenes at the end are so good that I think I shed a tear over how sweet they are!

I love reading about family in books, especially sisters. Jaci and Jena would do anything for each other and I really admire Jaci for not pushing Jena too far and for just supporting her in the decisions that were made. Reading a book series is always great because you get to continue with characters from previous books. The appearances Jaci and Ian made in Secrets of a Shy Socialite were fun and we get to relive the fact that Ian has his hands full with Jaci. If you are looking for an emotional contemporary medical romance to read that is sweet, sexy, and heartwarming, I highly recommend Secrets of a Shy Socialite.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical romance, this one tackles a hard subject. Loved it!! 14 Nov. 2013
By Cricket - Published on
I am usually not a big romance reader, but I have to say this book was so enlightening. It is not your typical romance by any means. I loved the strong characters and the equally strong message and lesson this book teaches. I could not put it down and read it straight through. If you like a book with romance, one that will teach you a little something and tackle a really hard subject then this is the book for you.
I'm new to reading Wendy S. Marcus books this one was my first one, but it will not be the last one. I hope she keeps tackling those hard subjects.
4.0 out of 5 stars Just Romance 20 Jun. 2013

I like Wendy Marcus' books because they are true to life, however in this instance the stark reality made me just like this one instead of loving it. I read this book the very week Angela's Joli announcement was made regarding her elective surgery. The jury is still out for me on wether I agree with this type of preventive surgery.
