Book Description
 
Truth (Consequences, #2)Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta.

When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. He thought he taught her to behave-but domination became desire and Claire taught Tony to love.

Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect, yet the reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away—a fateful decision which began a well laid plan.

Unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release—a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened!

Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past—can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?
How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal?

TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES,introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive?

When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future—but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?

Author Interview
 
  
 
Tell me a bit about yourself. What was your childhood like?
 
I’m married to my high school sweetheart. We have three great children—two grown and graduated from college and one still in high school. My family and my writing are my two priorities in life.

I love to travel. That has been a great bonus with writing. I’m so excited to travel and meet readers. It is a very exciting time for Mr. Jeff and me.

My childhood was a long time ago. I was raised by a single mother who did her best. I always wanted brothers and sisters. I’m blessed with siblings from marriage, but I basically grew up an only child. I swore I wouldn’t do that to my child...thus three!
 
As you're also a novelist, who was your favorite author when you grew up and why?

I wasn’t much of a reader until I had to read “The Incredible Journey” for a report. It was the first time a book held me captive. My favorite novel of all time is “Gone With The Wind”. I honestly fell away from reading while my children were little. It was John Grisham who brought me back. I love thrillers. I love trying to figure things out and being surprised.  Since then, my interests have broadened—Romantic Suspense—Erotic—Psychological Thrillers... I enjoy a wide range.
 
Do you have any exciting stories about your latest novel Truth that you think will be of readers interest?

When I wrote Consequences, I did not plan on it being the beginning of a trilogy or a series. I thought it was a standalone book; however, my readers wanted to know what happened next. To be honest, so did I.

Tony and Claire wouldn’t leave me alone. I thought about them constantly. I needed to learn the TRUTH of their story. I mean, did Claire really love him? Did she only go on with their relationship because of Stockholm syndrome? What about Tony? Why would he do what he did at the end of Consequences? Were Claire’s consequences planned from the beginning? How do their ancestors fit into the story? I had SO many lingering questions...the only way to learn the answers was to sit down and write.  I can just say...after surviving the Consequences—everyone NEEDS to learn the TRUTH

What is in your TBR pile?

OMG! It is a mile long! Currently, I’m reading the final book of the Sookie Stackhouse, Charlene Harris Series. I’ve read them all and feel obligated to know how it all ends.  E.K. Blair’s Fading is on the top of my TBR list. I met her briefly at Book Bash. Her book has done remarkably well for her first novel. I’m looking forward to it! There are SO many more...I need to disappear for a month and lose myself to reading! That would be heaven.

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers, like me? What is something that you learned as an experienced writer, that you wish you knew before publishing your first book?

Ha ha! I love that you consider me “experienced”—I don’t. I consider myself new in this amazing world. That said, I’ve learned a lot in the short time I’ve been in the writing world, and I continue to learn more all the time! Just last week I was in Atlanta at the RWA national meeting. I walked away so inspired by the successful authors, I quit my job!

What I’ve learned personally, is to write what you love—write what you know—write what you want to read. You aren’t alone. If you enjoy writing it, someone will enjoy reading it. (and some won’t—but that’s all right).  I’ve also learned that there is an AMAZING network of authors who are incredibly generous with their knowledge. All you need to do is ask.
 
At RWA I learned I need to write—write—write! The truly successful authors are producing books at an amazing pace. That is why I knew I needed to leave my dental hygiene job. It wasn’t an easy decision.  I loved my coworkers, dentist, and patients, but I just couldn’t do it all anymore. I decided writing needs to be my priority.
