Jen Frederick returns to her Kerr Chronicles series with Revealed to Him, an intense romance about a woman paralyzed with fear and the man who hopes to heal her.

Natalie Beck has been a prisoner in her own home for years. After writing the plot and dialogue for a successful video game three years ago, she’s been harassed both online and in real life, leading to a harrowing experience that could have ended her life. It took her over a year to step foot outside of her apartment after the incident, but with threatening messages and notes arriving at her home once again, all of Natalie’s progress evaporates.

Enter Jake Tanner, a veteran and security specialist hired by Natalie’s cousin to track down the person responsible for Natalie’s terror and to boost security in her surroundings. However, Jake is not without his own scars, though he wears his on the outside in the form of prosthetics on his right hand and foot.

Jake and Natalie communicate through texts and phone calls, as she’s unable to open the door and allow him into her home. It’s such a subtle and careful dance that they do, as business turns to casual conversation and then light flirting. Their relationship feels so natural that Natalie begins to forget the terror that keeps her trapped inside from morning till night. 

Natalie quickly becomes someone he doesn’t care to lose. 

With today's headlines, Natalie’s fear of Internet threats is easy to imagine. The panic attacks she suffers just answering her door are tense and heartrending. There are only a few people in Natalie’s life, all of whom are seemingly trying to help guide her to recovery. But as Jake and his team start to unravel the disturbing threats left for Natalie, it's revealed that her harasser may be closer than she realizes.

It is touching to see the way Jake cares for Natalie, and while he’s a man accustomed to loss, Natalie quickly becomes someone he doesn’t care to lose. The emotionally charged exchanges between the couple soften Natalie’s deep anxiety as she comes to realize that there’s so much outside of her home that she wants to experience.

Rife with passion and wonderfully paced romance, Revealed to Him asks how much a person is willing to overcome for a once-in-a-lifetime love.
