The concept of this story was a party two political candidates bidding for the same office, try to ignore the sparks flying between them, give in to temptation and embark on a secret sizzling affair while on the campaign trail.

Another Drake finds his true love. As with her other books, author Zuri Day gives you hope and belief that love does indeed conquer all. This book was an awesome read, I loved the storyline, with love & politics making good bed fellows, and it was easily readable in one sitting. Whenever I pick up one of her books, I know that I'm practically guaranteed to fall in love with the characters' story, and that the book won't disappoint me.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great

Secret Silver Nights is another great book in the Drakes of California series. Niko and Mo's story is wonderful. Sometimes the political aspect in a book can get boring really fast but Zuri Day didn't put too much emphasis on political stuff. She was still able to show the readers what happens during a campaign and how some politicians play dirty. But the love story was still there. I can't wait to read about the other Drake siblings.

Shockingly boring.

I love zuri day work. so I was shocked that this book was boring. Monique and Niko have no chemistry at all. I've fallen asleep multiple times while reading this book. And that's unknown for me. I'm use to her characters having some kind of spice or sizzle. this book fell way short of that.

This book was an excellent read that had quite a different storyline that led to a happy ending. Both Niko Drake and Monique Slater ran a good clean race to see who the Mayor of Paradise Cove would be. There were also a few kinks that took place before the race was won and most definitely some hot and steamy nights that produced a wonderful love story. Awesome read for me!

Sometimes Secrets are a Great thing.

This is book 4 of the series, it stayed true to the family lines. It was interesting how the candidates were able to build relationship while running for office. An avid fan of Zuri, I have fallen for the Drake family.

Secret Silver Nights

From the very first book that I read by Zuri Day I was hooked! She has a way of making you feel like you can see, feel, and touch the love that the characters have for each other! Another great book by her. I Loved it and you will to!

I could not put the book down...the love they have for one another is beautiful...even though they were both running for mayor, they learned how to put the race aside & love each other...when you have that feeling anything is possible...

This was one of the weaker books in the series for me. The backstory for Niko and Mo didn't really make sense. I feel like it would have been better if the first time they ever met was during the campaign. Outside of their backstory it was a decent read.

This was a very good book to read. I love the plot and the idea of how they fell in love. Her descriptions are so good that I could imagine the characters as I read them. Love, love, love this author!

Recommends it for: All romance junkies
Politics and love equal distrust, secrets being told and or sold, and lack of communications. This is the position Mayoral candidates Monique "Mo" Slater and Nicodemus "Niko" Drake find themselves in,

Nico Drake and Monique "Mo" Slater are political adversaries. They were also adversaries in a college debate. What Nico didn't know is that Mo had feelings for him while in college. Someone is playing dirty, trying to ruin Monique's reputation and keep Nico from winning the Mayor's race.

Zuri Day is a hopeful romantic. She believes in happy endings, half-full glasses and dreams coming true. That's why she's thrilled to be a contributing writer to this of her favorites!

Zuri doesn't remember exactly how old she was when she picked up her first romance novel, but she does remember it was love at first sight. "It was probably a Harlequin," she recalled during a recent inte
