Secret Dad by author Victoria Pinder, book 5 of the House of Morgan series, begins with a crime. The new Morgan on the block has big troubles; someone kidnapped Elizabeth Morgan's son. Rafe Soliz, the "go to cop", when the Morgan's have problems, knocks on Elizabeth door. What neither Elizabeth or Rafe realize, they know each other, at least physically. Unknown to Rafe, he's the father of Elizabeth's son. Neither knew the others full name or history as lust took over and Elizabeth ran the "morning after" before Rafe woke. But fate is a fickle lady, as she places all the pieces in their proper places to bring Elizabeth and Rafe together again.
Rafe's hired help, not part of the ultra wealthy Morgan clan's social sphere; now he finds he has a son with a Morgan. Rafe feels Elizabeth is above his reach. However, he will do everything in his power to keep her and his son safe from vicious threats, kidnapping, and possibly harm. Will Elizabeth change Rafe's prejudice against their different social positions? Can Rafe save both of the people who mean so much to him?
My reviews for romance novel, Secret Dad, follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Victoria Pinders latest novel of the House of Morgan, is a winner. Although primarily a family saga and romance thriller, Pinder filled it with prejudice, mystery, and suspense. Pinder grabs the reader in the first few paragraphs and holds them in the palm of her hand. I must tell you, this is the first House of Morgan novel I have read; complicated family's dynamics and plotting held my attention. Pinder crafted a fine mystery thriller romance, filling it with varied characters and emotions.
Also I must say, at times, I became very impatient with Rafe's preconceived notions of class distinctions; his feeling of inferiority because he was not of the wealthy class. At times, I wanted to shake him until his eyes rolled. The son of the Morgan's maid, he can not see past the inequity of their classes. Pinder allowed his character to grow as the story progressed and broadens his attitudes.
Elizabeth's character, insecure in her emotional relationship with Rafe, can't understand why he would want her when he can have her very beautiful rival. She has issues to overcome; raised in boarding schools without family has made her insecure and self doubting. Her son has been the focus of her life until Rafe appeared in her life again. The attraction still burns between these two. However, Pinder gave them hurdles to climb, issues to resolve, and a criminal to find.
With many threads to bring together for the plotting, Pinder skillfully wove them all together to form an intriguing romance novel. The villain's identity was a mystery to me until Pinder revealed the culprit. Secret Dad has a fast paced emotional ending and the epilogue's great.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for romance novel, Secret Dad, I found an intriguing story-line which held my attention. With intriguing plot lines and a smooth steady pace, this book provided hours of entertainment.
SECRET DAD RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
Additionally, Secret Dad's a standalone read. Pinder gives enough background to bring you up to speed, however to give you a deeper understanding of the emotions and dynamics, I feel it would be beneficial to read the previous books.

Miami PD Rafe Soliz is sick of dealing with filthy rich Morgans and their non-stop crises but has arrived at the Morgan residence to investigate a kidnapping at his sister Caro's behest. Rafe is taken aback when the mother of the kidnapped boy turns out to be Liz, who'd snuck out of his hotel room after the best night of his life before he could get her number. Even more shocking is the fact that the missing boy Brandon is Rafe's son. Rafe acts on a hunch and is able to reunite Brandon with Liz. Now that Rafe knows he has a son, he has to find a way to see his son without getting too involved with any Morgan. Although Rafe wants Liz, he knows she deserves someone better than the son of the hired help. Liz wants the gorgeous Rafe more than any other man. Back when they'd first met, he hadn't known she was an heiress, and had liked her for who she was. Will Liz be able to convince Rafe that they belong together? But that's the least of their worries. Brandon's kidnapper's accomplice threaten to kill Brandon if he doesn't get $10 million. Will Rafe be able to keep Brandon and Liz safe?
Secret Dad has angst, excitement, suspense, romance as well as twists and turns. Victoria Pinder paired an intriguing story and engaging characters to make this book a pager turner. I highly recommend this book.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book
Rafe Soliz works for the Miami Police Department and is always assigned to any case dealing with the Morgans. All his life, he has been around this billionaire family. Growing up his Mom worked for the family as a Housekeeper; his sister did as well when old enough. Now his sister, Caro, is dating a Morgan - Dr. Luke Morgan. Rafe would prefer no contact with the family but the state's Governor stated otherwise.
This time, Rafe is sent to the Morgans regarding a kidnapping of the son of Elizabeth Morgan. Rafe didn't know who she was when he went to the residence. When he walks into the room and crying Mother turns around, he is shocked to see that she was a one-night stand he had in Las Vegas two years ago. He never knew te woman's name as she left while he was sleeping and didn't leave a note.
Two years ago when Elizabeth (Liz) spent the night with Rafe, she didn't know that she was a Morgan as she was raised in boarding schools as were her two brothers.
The story becomes even more intriguing as, upon looking at a picture of Elizabeth's son, Rafe recognizes the child as being at the Police station through a different case.
I recommend reading this book to learn more secrets around the family as well as those wishing to be married into the family.
