New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Flame by Aleatha Romig

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance, Spark, set in the same dangerous world as Secrets and Twisted. You do not need to read the Web of Sin or Tangled Web trilogy to get caught up in this new and intriguing saga, Web of Desire.
“What matters most is how you walk through the fire.” ~ Charles Bukowski 
No longer simmering and crackling beyond our realm, the fire smoldering in the distance roars to life. The blaze has the capacity to scorch and destroy everything and everyone in its path.  
All that I’ve known and believed was obliterated the moment Madeline spoke a truth I’d never suspected. With one sentence, one plea, my life has taken an uncharted turn. Through the smoke and soot, I search for answers.
A man, an outfit, and my brothers-in-arms have been my solace, my calling, and my reason to live. Now that I know there’s more, what will the future hold? 
The Ivanov bratva wants Chicago. I want what they possess. With the Sparrow world at war, and Madeline’s declaration, she and I are surrounded, trapped by the inferno. 


What will remain when the flames cease and we are left surveying the ashes?

Tracey’s Review
After the ending of SPARK (Book 1) left us all standing there with our chins on the floor, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on FLAME, the second book in the Web of Desire series by author Aleatha Romig. Where in the world was Aleatha going to go with Patrick’s and Madeleine’s story, and would it be as action-packed and twisty and turny as in SPARK? Well, of course, the answer to my questions is, yes, absolutely, and along the same twisty turny path that had me flipping pages in the first part of the story.

FLAME gives readers more of the back story between Patrick and Madeleine, especially the things that Maddie has gone through and done to save herself and all that is important to her. The lengths that she’s gone to are intense, and are a testament to the love and strength that drive her.

Patrick is alpha with a capital ‘A,’ and even more so once he finds out more about the secrets that Maddie is harboring. He and the Sparrows are definitely the ones that I’d want in my corner if the going got hinky, and with his not-so-vested interest in Maddie, he’s the perfect man for this job.

FLAME is the perfect follow-up to SPARK, and leaves plenty of room for action and answers both in ASH, the upcoming last book in this series. 4 easy stars for Patrick, Maddie, and their far-from-over story. If you haven’t been Aleatha’d, now’s the time. ❤️

Spark is Book 1 of the Web of Desire Trilogy and is available NOW!

Ashes is Book 3 of the Web of Desire Trilogy is up for Pre-Order!

Hi and thanks for visiting! I’m a former medical writer (unsurprisingly, writing romance is much more fun than writing about pediatric heart surgery) and therapist (I was terrible at it). I have a couple of degrees that have proven completely useless, and I now live in Washington, DC with my three kids.

New Release + Release Blitz + 6 Star Review: Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros

Release Date: February 25
How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are? 
Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.
But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.
But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.
If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…
Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

Tracey’s Review
It didn’t take but a page or two of GREAT AND PRECIOUS THINGS by author Rebecca Yarros for me to know that this book was going to wreck me in the best possible way. Rebecca’s beautiful words, a world that I fell immediately into and became a part of, and a story that broke my heart and put it back together, make this a great book, and I was riveted, from beginning to end.

A decorated war hero back home in a town filled with people that have never understood him, Camden Daniels’s real strength is the lengths that he will go to for those that he loves, even when that love is not returned. Black sheep, town bad boy, the Daniels boy that will never measure up to either of his brothers, Cam knows what others, including his own father, think of him, but he’s ready to face his demons in order to help his family and the town that he loves. Cam had my heart from early on, and I absolutely adore him.

This book is, at its heart, a love story, but not just one of romantic love. Familial love, love of a place, and self-love are themes that Rebecca weaves throughout this beautiful book. Angst, anger, hatred, desire, love, reconciliation, heartbreak, all of these elements are here, and the story wouldn’t be the same without them. GREAT AND PRECIOUS THINGS is a book that will remain with me for a very long time, and have made me an immediate fan. My first 6-star read of this year, I cannot recommend it highly enough, and I look forward to my next great read from Rebecca. ❤️

Meet Rebecca Yarros

I’m a hopeless romantic and adore all things chocolate, coffee and paleo. No, seriously, I need to have a caffeine IV put in. I’ve adored reading all my life, and writing naturally evolved from my love of late nights and promises of one more page.

I’m also a military wife of sixteen years. During my husband’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was devouring a book a day, and during his third deployment, I finally wrote my own. With a somewhat ironic timing, I received my book deal for Full Measures during his fourth deployment, and published a month after he returned home. We’re currently preparing for his fifth deployment, so check out the blog for the latest!
On the homefront, we have six kids. Yes, you read that right—six. If I’m not writing or playing guitar, I’m usually tying hockey skates for our four boys, or sneaking in John Hughes marathons with my two daughters. We fostered and adopted our youngest daughter from the foster system and we’re passionate about helping others do the same through our non-profit, One October! We’re always busy navigating the winding road of our daughter’s recent autism diagnosis, getting our boys to hockey, prepping for a deployment, and generally trying to stay sane. We’re die-hard Mets fans, but our hearts call Colorado home.
If you’ve read all of that, haven’t fallen asleep, and still want to know more about me, check out my blog:!

For some, the bravest thing a person could ever do is to admit that they’ve fallen in love.

Saying the words out loud changes everything and there’s no way to take them back. It’s impossible to pluck the words out of the air and slip them into their back pocket to keep the truth safely tucked away.

The best feeling in the entire world though, is to know, irrevocably, that the person they fell in love with, fell just as hard in love with them. That’s what makes a romance, a romance.

Need You Now is a collection of four best-selling novels including:

The Dirty Duet by Laurelin Paige
Half Truths by Claire Contreras
Sinner by Sierra Simone

Cover Reveal + Pre-Order: Frat House Confessions – Brody by Bethany Lopez

Frat House Confessions: Brody by Bethany Lopez

Releasing March 30th

Contemporary Romance


She’s looking for someone with a rich character, not bank account…

Emma’s life has not been easy. Rather than using her disadvantages as a crutch, they have fueled her passion for helping others. She believes in working hard, loves her brother unconditionally, and has no time in her busy life for a certain cocky playboy who has obviously never been denied a thing in his life.

He’s searching for something, but isn’t sure what…

Brody may come across as a fast-talking rich boy with a sweet car. He’s secured a position in the hottest frat on campus and has the attitude of a guy who’s never known what it’s like to go without. So, yeah, it’s a pretty accurate description. But there’s more to the youngest Temple brother than meets the eye.

When Brody keeps showing up in Emma’s world, her initial assumption is that he’s still playing games. As his confessions come to light, Emma starts to see beneath the surface, but is it enough to change her perception of him? Will Brody finally be faced with the one thing he can’t buy… Love?

Except Reveal + Pre-Order: Puck Money by Brit DeMille


PUCK MONEY (Vegas Crush #4) by Raine Miller Writing As Brit DeMille
Release Date: March 12th

Add to Goodreads:

What is PUCK MONEY about?

💵 A super nerdy financial manager running from a scandal.

🏒🥅 A smoking hot hockey player with an embarrassing secret.

🎰 Plenty of Las Vegas shenanigans and some really steamy _ _ _ _ i n g sessions.

⚡ Sexy Harry Potter readings.

🐉 Russian accents and Dragon tattoos.



Finally, I take a deep breath and turn, my cup in my hand. But Boris is right there. And I’m me, so my hot cup of tea spills. This time, it’s not on me, but on Boris’ nice, white shirt.

He yelps—because, you know, it’s freaking hot—and immediately pulls his shirt up over his head.

“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” I yell while grabbing a dish towel and running it under the cold water from the faucet. I reach out, dabbing the cool rag onto his very defined chest and abs, working completely on autopilot. It takes a moment for me to realize I’m touching his bare skin.

I back away, the rag still in my hand, my hand still halfway between him and me, and apologize again, feeling helpless. “Shit. I’m such a klutz. I’m so sorry I hurt you.”

Boris takes the hand with the rag in it and catches my gaze. I look away, licking my lips, but looking away from the intensity in his eyes means taking in the rest of him. Oh well, if I must. Powerful shoulders, washboard abs, bulging biceps. There’s a patch of dark hair on his chest, a thin happy trail that leads down underneath his jeans. And that big, beautiful dragon tattoo snaking up one arm. He looks sexy and fit and just the right mixture of bad and good.

Christ. I might pass out. This guy is… He can’t be real.

“It’s okay,” he says quietly. “Accidents happen. I shouldn’t have startled you like that.”

I gulp—literally gulp—and give a weak nod in response. He nods back and drops my hand.

“Well, now I have to read you that book, I suppose,” I say, a half-hearted attempt at a joke.

“I insist.” His short and simple response hits me right between the legs but I force them to move forward anyway, over to my chaise. I sit in my favorite spot on one end, my feet curled under me and pull my gray chenille blanket up over my lap. This is a cue for LuLu, who’s been hiding who-knows-where, to jump up on me with a loud greeting.

“Hello, my sweet girl.” I pet my fluffy white cat as she purrs and rubs on me, happy to have her mommy home again.

“Who is this?” Boris asks.

“This is LuLu, spoiled fur-child.”

He reaches over to give her a pet and says, “Hello LuLu. You are as beautiful as your mother.”

I blush again, not used to being complimented like this. “You’re good for our ego, sir. Maybe we’ll invite you over more often.”

“I would like that.” His delicious accent makes even the simplest phrases sound sexy and potentially wicked.

Blushing again, I look down at the book in my hands for distraction. It’s a sci-fi type of book with a strong female lead and a strong side of romance. It was good. Not one of my top ten, but I can see a dude liking it.

As I start to read, Boris leans his head back against the back of the chaise, closing his eyes. I might worry he’s fallen asleep, but I see his face react as I read. His lips are a distraction as they twitch in response to funnier lines in the book. I want to kiss those lips of his and know what they feel like moving against mine. Badly.

I read about three chapters before a big yawn interrupts me. Boris opens his eyes and looks me over.

“You’re tired.”

“It’s way past my bedtime,” I admit.

“One more chapter and then I’ll go.”

I can’t say no to that, can I? I start up again, but this time he doesn’t close his eyes. He watches me the whole time. Every word. And that dark look in his eyes returns—the one I saw when we were dancing earlier.

Is he…turned on? By my reading?

I finish the chapter and then mark the page. We stare at each other for a long time. I can feel my breathing becoming labored until I can no longer deny what’s going on here. My attraction to this man is intensely powerful. He’s just…good…for lack of a better descriptor. Is it possible the perfect man exists, and his name is Boris Drăghici? There’s definitely something different about him from other men. He’s so much more than his amazing body and that chiseled jawline.


The whole package.

And I’m into all of it.

I want him.




About the Author:
Brit DeMille is Raine’s alter-ego in case you didn’t know.

And she is having an absolute blast writing books that are a little bit different from what Raine usually writes. Brit loves stories about sexy billionaires [millionaires make the cut too] who fall in instalove with young women who may or may not be virgins, and then go on to make adorable babies together. In addition to the billionaires, hot hockey players are at the top of her list of favorite heroes, along with royals and ex-military bodyguards.

The most important thing to Brit when she writes a story is a happily ever after. But during the actual writing of the story, the most important thing to Brit is a cup of hot tea with a splash of milk, and a stash of cherry Jolly Ranchers. A dog or two will likely be in between Brit and the chair at any given moment, which is very handy, because they are the ones who approve everything she writes.
