About the book: Release Date June 8, 2015

We first met Bianca and Jakob in Illusion, stranded on a desert island and thrown into one another’s arms. But each of them has dark secrets yet to be uncovered…

In this new e-novella tied to the Swept Away series, New York Times bestselling author J.S. Cooper reveals even more surprises about the dangerous Bradley family…

Jakob knows Bianca’s appearance at the Bradley, Inc. stockholders meeting was no accident. He knows her family ruined his mother’s life. And he knows that he can’t keep his hands off her. But it’s what he doesn’t know that might put both of them in deadly danger.


REVIEW: MASQUERADE is the second prequel novella in J.S. Cooper’s adult, contemporary Swept Away romantic suspense series focusing on Bianca London and Jakob Bradley. Throughout the series the reader had been pulled into Bianca’s search for the truth about her mother’s death and her father’s connections to Bradley Inc.

Told from first person point of view (Jakob), MASQUERADE follows Jakob’s need to uncover the who and what of Bianca London. Bianca’s family is tied indirectly to the death of Jakob’s mother, and the Bradley connection to the London family borders the unethical and illegal. Jakob and his half brother David are convinced that Bianca is out to destroy the company name, and a plan is set into motion to extract all of the information Bianca knows about their family connections.

MASQUERADE reveals all of the players in a game that will see Bianca London caught in a game of cat and mouse-but who is the cat and how many mice are trapped in the Bradley maze. The premise follows the set up and potential take down of a woman whose life is about to unravel; where betrayal is around every corner; where the people she loves are not the people she has come to know.
