From the New York Times bestselling author of such “sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes a Stark International Novel featuring provocative bad boy Dallas Sykes—the first in a new trilogy in the S.I.N. series.

It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.
The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.

Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.

Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.

We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.

Praise for Dirtiest Secret

“[A] high-octane contemporary, the first in [J. Kenner’s] new Stark International Novel (S.I.N.) trilogy . . . Kenner skillfully builds a top-notch thriller.”Publishers Weekly

“Fans of Kenner’s steamy, decadent and daring plotlines will feel right at home in her new S.I.N. series and revel in the escapades of her tortured characters and their forbidden passion. As always, Kenner delivers a sensual and heady physical relationship, fraught with danger, forbidden love and high-stakes complications.”RT Book Reviews

“Strong writing propels an exciting tale of longing, danger, and forbidden desire. The ending’s twist will leave readers eager for the next installment.”Library Journal

“This book had a little bit of everything. Mystery, suspense, emotion and dirty, hot sex.”—Shameless Book Club

“Kenner wrote Dallas in such a way that you are enthralled with his character from the first page he graces. He’s sexy and extremely controlling but not quite what you think he is.”—Black Heart Reviews

“Seduction and tangled emotions led the way in this first book of the Stark International Novels (S.I.N.) series. With a happy-for-now ending that had a twist at the end, I can’t wait to see what happens next in Jane and Dallas’s intriguing story.”—Harlequin Junkie

“It was literally like [eating] the most decadently sinful piece of chocolate, knowing that you really need to lose those last ten pounds. I do believe that I just found my newest guilty pleasure and his name is Dallas Sykes.”—Hooker Heels Book Blog

  • Dirtiest Secret

    By Sweet- Paradise
    I love Dallas and Jane they have been through hell and back,but that really done mean that they can overcome the memories that haunt them. Together they can overcome what happened to them but being in love with your sibling is what is tearing them apart the most. My heart breaks for them. They kind of love is taboo even though they aren't related by blood. I just hope that they can handle difference of opinion when it comes to rescuing kidnapped victim(s). But, something tells me that's the least of their problems that's to come. Can't wait to read the next installment. Wish it would release sooner.

  • This book was mind-blowing.

    This book was mind-blowing. J. Kenner takes you on ride through a dark, sexy and forbidden story. Dallas Sykes is known as the King of F*ck. He goes through women like most people drink water. He is rich and powerful. Most people don't know of his horrible past, when he was kidnapped as a teenager, except his family and closest friends. Dallas was kidnapped along with his "sister", Jane. While Dallas and Jane are not blood siblings, it just seems wrong. What Dallas and Jane went through while being held captive, no one will really understand except for them. It created a certain bond between these two that can never happen again. Well, never say never. Dallas and Jane stay away from each other, trying to get over their past in different ways but they both still long for the other. As Jane is writing her next book about children who have been kidnapped, her ex-husband tells her that they have a lead on her kidnapping from 17 years ago. Jane decides to go to Dallas to give him the news and this sets off their attraction to one another like it was still 17 years ago. The roller coaster these two are going on is just crazy. To be so attracted to some one whom you know is wrong to be with, but can't is just heartbreaking. As Dallas and Jane decide to try and handle their issues, we are taken along on this mind-blowing ride. Without giving away any spoilers, this story was awesome. I loved the mystery around everything that is happening. I really am enjoying Dallas and Jane. These two have chemistry off the charts. I had a feeling of some of the characters who may be involved in the kidnapping, but it was still a great cliff-hanger to read. I wish July would get here so I can read the next book!
  • Excellent

    By Ddgoldbergs
    A journey that no one should have to face, Jane and Dallas are still fighting emotions 17 years later. Secrets and deception run high but love lingers. Jane needs the air that Dallas breathes. Dallas thinks about Jane daily. Will he allow her in? Will he share his deepest wants and desires? Who can be trusted? Who has the connections to pull off the kidnapping that shattered them? J. Kenner is an incredible writer. A sensitive topic can be difficult to write but she delivered it beautifully. And yes...there's a cliffhanger...
