Tracing the path of Skilar Parks, a preacher’s daughter from a small town, ‘The Wrong Shade of Lipstick’ is a twisted tale of secrets, revenge, jealousy and that first sweet taste of love.
"Coming up in a small town and as the local preacher’s daughter, Skilar Parks found herself constantly struggling to find her own identity. Before unexpectedly, her past and her present began to collide and secrets that she thought would stay hidden forever; were out in the open for everyone to see. Paying the price for her indiscretions is more than Skilar could handle and jealousy soon gets the best of her. The unthinkable become her first thought, the unbearable becomes her first actions, and the unsaid seemed to be the very thing that everyone was talking about. Just because it’s in the dark, is it necessarily hidden? Or can you fumble around long enough until you somehow stumble across it? The lights are on and with secrecy, history, and disloyalty suddenly all around her, Skilar quickly learns that no one can be trusted…not even the people she trusts the most."
As the author explains, there is an underlying message to everything she writes.
“Although my first wish is to entertain, I also want to teach lessons through my novels that inspire and motivate,” says Hardin. “My first readers have told me how much they relate to Skilar – and what a compliment! She’s a real woman, with flaws, emotions and a big, big heart.”
Continuing: “I think we can all remember falling in love, struggling with our identity and making that first major mistake that could cost us everything. When people have their backs up against the wall and they feel threatened or exposed – they become their true selves. It’s electrifying and very exciting to write about – and hopefully, to read about!”

About B.M. Hardin, in her own words
"A Native of Gastonia, NC. Though I am a Business Major, I've always loved literature. Writing has always been a passion of mine. I've always had a way with words and the gift of "gab" So i felt it only necessary to share it with the rest of the world.
It's a beautiful feeling to be able to do the thing you love the most. When you find that thing that gives you more joy than doing anything else, pursue it; chase after it and dont stop until you catch it. Never give up on your dreams because believe me...Dreams do come true!!"
