A highly renowned series of romance novels written by author Barbara McCauley is known as the Secrets! series. This series consists of a total of 15 books published between 1999 and 2007. Every book in this series features a different set of two main characters, who indulge in a romantic relationship and undergo several ups and downs as the series progresses further. Some of the essential characters depicted by McCauley in the series include Lucan Blackhawk, Julianna Hadley, Nick Santos, Maggie Smith, Killian Shaughnessy, Cara Sinclair, Callan Sinclair, Abigail Thomas, Melanie Hart, Gabriel Sinclair, Reese Sinclair, Sydney Taylor, Raina Sarbanes, Lucian Sinclair, Evan Carter, Marcy Pruitt, Dillon Blackhawk, Rebecca Blake, Kiera Blackhawk, Sam Prescott, D.J. Bradshaw, Alaina Blackhawk, Alexis Blackhawk, Jordan Grant, and several others.

McCauley has set the stories primarily in Texas. The debut book of the series is entitled ‘Blackhawk’s Sweet Revenge’. It was released in 1999 by the Silhouette Desire publication. The story begins by showing that Lucas Blackhawk returns to his hometown to take revenge from Mason Hadley, father of Julianna Hadley. Mason had stolen the ranch of Lucas’ father and had framed him in a crime he had not committed. Lucas’ father died in prison, which hurt Lucas badly. Lately, Mason has been borrowing money from Lucas’ company by putting all his assets as collateral and not knowing about Lucas. When Mason is not left with any more assets and is not in the situation of repaying, Lucas arrives to take everything from him.

Julianna has never made any boyfriends or girlfriends because of her shyness and the ruthlessness of her father. She had developed feelings for Lucas when they both were teenagers and always wished for his return. But, Lucas thought that just like Mason, she hated him too for his half-Indian ethnicity. When Julianna learns that Mason has signed off the house of her grandparents to Lucas as collateral, she approaches him and begs for the house. Lucas decides to make Julianna his wife and asks for marriage. She becomes very happy to have him as her life partner. However, Lucas didn’t have any feelings or emotions for Julianna. For him, the marriage was just another way of making Mason suffer. In his attempt to take control, Lucas could not see the Julianna suffering. So, he develops a soft corner for her in his heart. The latter part of the story shows how they end up together after overcoming various obstacles in their path of love.

The next installment of the series is called ‘Secret Baby Santos’. It was also released by Silhouette Desire in 1999. The central characters of this novel include Maggie Smith and Nick Santos. The story starts by introducing Nick Santos as a handsome and charming man. Maggie Smith is shown as a shy girl, who always fantasized about Nick. When she gets the opportunity to take Nick Santos as her first lover, Maggie takes it with both hands. She also loses her virginity to Nick. He sees her as an ultimate seductress, but doesn’t remain with her for long. Unknown to Nick, Maggie becomes pregnant and eventually gives birth to a son. A few years later, they come across each other again and decide to reunite. Maggie becomes very happy to get Nick back in her life again. She tries not to reveal the secret of their son, but Nick becomes aware of it later. He seems mesmerized by the beautiful Maggie Smith, captivated by her passion, and charmed by her beautiful son. Maggie was worried that Nick might leave her again if he learned that her son was the result of their passionate night of romance. But, he accepts both Maggie and her son with all his heart and goes on to live happily with them.
