The first in the Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series! A pulse-pounding thriller! Ms Connally’s first murder mystery delivers! Suspenseful…shocking…a psychological thriller— leaving readers on the edge of their seat. Cameron Quinn is caught in a web of deceit. Protecting her brother from being framed for a murder places Cameron in untold danger.

A “must read” for any suspense lover!

Blood makes you related; Murder makes you family!

Riley Ashcroft discovers that being born into one of the most prominent and powerful families in Massachusetts doesn’t mean a life of ease. Far from it. Since her father, Jack Ashcroft, took his own life thirteen years ago, she has lived in the shadow of scandal. When her grandmother’s personal secretary is brutally murdered, Riley begins to suspect everything she has been told as a child was a lie. Feeling betrayed, she vows to expose her family’s darkest secrets.

Josh Kincaid, an investigative reporter, is on the heels of a major story. Thirteen years ago, Harrison Taylor’s fate lay in the hands of his lawyer, Jack Ashcroft. In the midst of rumors and scandal, Ashcroft committed suicide and Taylor’s fate was decided. Taylor is a convicted killer, but his grandmother has never stopped believing in his innocence. Now, the woman of meager means has offered a reward for any information that will free her grandson. Kincaid’s interest is peaked, but it isn’t until an anonymous tip suggests that the convicted killer was framed that he takes on the case.

Determined that the sins of the past be revealed, Kincaid and Riley search together for answers to the questions that were silenced by Jack Ashcroft’s death. But there is a killer out there that has already proven he will do whatever necessary to keep those secrets buried.

In this tale of deceit and twisted revenge, the two soon realize that no one can be trusted, not even each other…

Also, I have put Winds of Betrayal under one cover!

Winds of Betrayal, Four Book Collection, is the complete series, which included Winds of Betrayal, The Darkness of Deception, The Heavens Shall Fall, and Set Fire to the Rain.

Winds of Betrayal has been my baby for such a long time and has gone through many changes over the years, especially the titles to the books. The first book alone has been titled Patriot Secrets, The Cry For Freedom, Embrace of the Enemy, Winds of Betrayal 1&2 to simply-Winds of Betrayal.

I don’t believe it will be surprising to know that the Culper Spy Ring has been my inspiration for Winds of Betrayal. But my story is purely fiction. The history, though, I have tried my best to stay true to the facts as well as I could. The time line may have been stretched in places to fit my story.

I have spent so much time with these characters. I feel as though they are family. I started writing this series almost fifteen years ago when all that could be found on the internet about the Culper Spy ring was a single page with only a couple of paragraphs dedicated to these brave men and women. In my research, I discovered just how important spying was to General Washington, but, also, how deadly to those that laid their lives on the line if they were caught.

I am not a historian, but a lover of history. I feel that the sacrifices of those before us should never be forgotten. The American Revolution has always fascinated me. Our Founding Fathers surely need to be admired for laying the foundation for such a great country. I hope I have done justice to their memories.

I truly hope you enjoy my series.

COFFEE TIME ROMANCE & MORE CTRR Award 
I positively enjoyed Seductive Secrets. Colleen Connally spins a tale that scoops up the reader and transports them into action, romance and intrigue. There is so much more that makes this story spectacular. It is filled with deception, treachery, romance, intense drama, and detailed characters that pull in the reader from the beginning until the end. The secondary players add great finesse to the storyline. I have to admit it was completely hard to put this book down. Ms. Connally creates an enthralling read that surrounds with anticipation that continues to build, leaving this reader spellbound. – Cherokee

RISQUE REVIEWS -Top Choice Award 
This story kept me on the edge of my seat as Alyce goes through the days trying to learn the truth. The suspense kept my heart racing as Alyce meets someone that knows something about her father. It turns out to be an attempt on her life. I literally held my breath until I knew she was alright.
Later in the story, Haynes takes Alyce through a journey of sensual feelings for Lord Julian. Alyce discovers that she is falling in love. And through the description Haynes uses throughout her story, I experience the same feelings Alyce felt. Haynes was able to make me place myself in this story to feel as if all the action that took place happened to me. I especially like when I read a book and can feel that way.
There is one scene toward the end of the book that made me not able to put the story down–when Alyce is led to old ruins at Colonel Tolworthy’s estate by someone trying to cause her harm. I stayed up late reading the last section of the book because I simply could not quit reading until I knew the outcome.

Fragmented, Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series

Back when I released Fragmented, I committed to donating a percentage of my royalties to The One Fund, a Boston based charity for the Boston Marathon Victims. Back in December, I made my last donation to The One Fund. Not because I decided not to give, but because it is closed to donations. This is the message that was left.

The One Fund Donations

We are truly grateful for your interest in donating to the One Fund Boston to support those most affected by the tragic Marathon bombings. As of December 15, 2014, the One Fund Boston is no longer accepting donations. However, we invite you to consider donating to other charitable programs and organizations supporting the survivor community.

I believe in giving back to the community and now have decided that my writing will commit to donating to The Home For Little Wanderers in Boston. For more than 200 years, The Home For Little Wanderers has built a reputation for changing and enhancing lives of children and families living in at-risk circumstances.

I bring this up because my attention is turning back to my Colleen Connally writings for a moment. Fragmented is my only contemporary suspense book that I have written to date. I do plan on continuing the series. I hope to have the next book in Boston’s Crimes of Passion out next year. I hope you have a chance to read Fragmented. I do not think it will disappoint.
