About the Book

“Full of drama among the beautiful and powerful, the series would make a fabulous soap opera.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

All they need is a second chance…

It’s been three years since Ashiya Waters walked away from Russell—and made the biggest mistake of her life. She knows she shouldn’t dwell on the past. Love isn't meant to last…and nobody taught her that better than her own family. But when her grandmother unexpectedly dies, leaving Ashiya in charge of a multimillion-dollar company, Russell is the only one who can help her…and things get complicated fast.

Russell Gilchrist would do anything to be named COO of Robidoux Holdings—with all of the power and money that comes along with it. He’s been desperate to solve the disappearance of his brother, Roderick, for years, and the Robidoux influence could finally turn this cold case hot—and give his family some much-needed closure. The job is his…if he helps Ashiya manage her new business. He’ll just do his work and get out—that’s the plan. But being so close to the woman who broke his heart is dangerous. Seeing her smile and feeling her touch makes him want to forget the past. But will this second chance at love burn them both?

Critical Praise

Full of drama among the beautiful and powerful, the series would make a fabulous soap opera.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer on Foolish Hearts

"Williams’s novel doesn’t shy away from family dysfunction, and sometimes there are no easy answers, keeping readers guessing until the end."—Library Journal on Foolish Hearts

"It’s fast-paced and steamy, exactly the type of book I want. This whole series is just not one to miss."Smexy Books on Foolish Hearts

"Like the other books in this series Foolish Hearts is fast-paced and balances drama with steamy scenes to keep you hooked."—Women of Color Read Too on Foolish Hearts

The perfect escape. Forbidden Promises is a deeply felt, engrossing, soapy romance that manages to both luxuriate in its angst, while also interrogating something far more wide-reaching and universal than the admittedly sexy taboo appeal of its central conceit.”—Entertainment Weekly on Forbidden Promises 

“Politics, passion, and family drama combine to make a deliciously soapy second-chance, brother’s-best-friend romance. Readers of Alisha Rai’s Forbidden Hearts series or Reese Ryan’s Engaging the Enemy will be tantalized and surprised by the many twists and turns.”—Library Journal on Forbidden Promises

“A romance for readers looking for equal parts passion and family drama.”—Kirkus Reviews on Forbidden Promises

"Enemies to lovers is a favorite trope of contemporary romance writers these days. Some books fly and some books don’t. However, in Careless Whispers, you can be assured that Williams’ skill as a writer makes you believe in her protagonists’ ability to overcome their differences and love deeply."
Frolic, a "Book of the Week" pick on Careless Whispers

"Fans of second chances, reconnecting friends, friends-to-lovers, and political romance stories will enjoy this book."—Harlequin Junkie on Scandalous Secrets

“Williams makes waves with this exceptional tale of forbidden love.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Forbidden Promises -
