A makeup artist for the Phantom of the Opera with a tragic past. A mysterious man hiding a scar worse than the phantom from the Broadway show.
Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—the famous director of Phantom.
Why didn’t somebody ever tell her that marrying your director was a bad idea, especially when he has a wandering eye?
Desperate to get away after enduring several years of heartache and scars, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.
A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possess a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night for the theater.
But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down.
When Anton helps Linden open up to the world around her, Linden wonders if the small town of Snow Valley might hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart.
If you like sweet romance and second chance love stories, then you’ll love THE SECRET OF A KISS, A Snow Valley Romance.

“Hold still,” Linden Adair murmured to the Phantom of the Opera—also known as Phil Stephens in real life.
Under the glow of the lighted vanity in the dressing room, she mixed up the special makeup paste with practiced hands. Every night she created the horrifying famous facial scar on Phil, and it came out grotesquely beautiful. It was one of her finest makeup creations she’d ever done.
But tonight, when Linden leaned in close to Phil to apply the rubber prosthetic stuff, her chest constricted and her breath hitched.
Every step she took in getting the actor ready for tonight’s Phantom of the Opera performance felt like it would be her last. But that was crazy. She was only going on vacation. After years of not taking a vacation. She deserved her saved-up days. There was no reason she shouldn’t visit her best friend, Anne, in Seattle.
So why this weird sensation that she might never see this beautiful theatre or the other actors and stagehands again. What if tonight really was her last night?
Linden had kept her trip a secret and now it was bursting inside of her, but she had to play it cool and not say a word. She didn’t want the news to get back to the director, Mark Denly—also known as her ex-husband—that she was leaving for a month. The director of The Phantom of the Opera, the most famous show on Broadway, would blow a gasket.
