The Sealed With a Kiss series was Carmen's first venture into the world of writing. It has grown from a duet into a trilogy, and now has a total of twelve books planned, with five released and the sixth releasing in November. These books span a variety of romance sub-genres: student/teacher, second chance, romantic suspense, friends-to-lovers, female/female, domestic abuse survivor, surprise pregnancy, age gap, and male/male. Trigger warning: the themes of domestic violence, sexual assault, abortion, and attempted suicide are dealt with in some of the books in the series. There will be a trigger warning in the synopsis for the applicable books when you go to purchase them, so be sure to read the synopsis before buying and reading the books.
The first three books in the series, the original trilogy, follow Zoe and her 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 and gets more and more aggressive. Secrets are revealed and the couple's lives 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 story to tell about what they went through, and it's a very different and slightly darker tale.
The fifth book 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 with the context of the rest of the series. Book five, My Bonds Are Sealed, is a friends-to-lovers romance about Zoe's fraternal twin sister, River, and the love of her life, Mason. It takes place in the five-year time gap of Zoe and Elijah's story (hence why it was released between installments of Elijah's trilogy) and includes some light BDSM. Book eight, My Pride Is Sealed, is a female/female romance about Zoe and Elijah's friend Madison and the love of her life, Autumn. Book nine, My Past Is Sealed, is a domestic abuse survivor romance about their friend Kelly and the love of her life, Shane. Book ten, My Choice Is Sealed, is a surprise pregnancy romance about their friend Abby and the love of her life, Nick. Book eleven, Our Years Are Sealed, is an age gap romance about Zoe and River's stepfather, Rob, and the second love of his life, Megan. Book twelve, My Role Is Sealed, is a male/male romance about their friend Grant and the love of his life, Bryce.
