The Sealed With a Kiss series was Carmen's first venture into the world of writing. It started as a duet, which then turned into a trilogy, and now has a total of sixteen books planned.
The first three books in the series, the original trilogy, follow Zoe's journey with the love of her life, Elijah. The first book, My Lips Are Sealed, is a student/teacher romance that tells the story of how they met and fell in love. The second and third books, My Heart Is Sealed and My Future Is Sealed, are a combination of second chance romance and romantic suspense. They pick up five years later and tell the story of them finding each other again, getting engaged and married, and trying to find a stalker who seems to be hell-bent on destroying their life together. Secrets are revealed and the couple's new life get turned upside-down on the path to happily ever after.
The fourth, sixth, and seventh books (My Fate Is Sealed, My Soul Is Sealed, and My Dreams Are Sealed) are Elijah's version of his story with Zoe. However, it's not just the same story in different words. Elijah has his own tale to tell about what they went through, and it's darker, grittier, and a whole lot steamier.
The fifth book, My Bonds Are Sealed, and all books after the seventh book are standalone books about Zoe and Elijah's friends and family. Each book falls into a separate sub-genre and may be read as a standalone, although some events will make a lot more sense within the context of the rest of the series.
