New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 4-Star Review: The Scramble by Kristen Proby

Maddie and Dylan heat up Iceland for Christmas!

The Scramble, an all-new heroine scrooge meets hero Mr. Christmas, opposites attract romance from New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, is out now!

There are two things you need to know about me. 1: I’m never late. And 2: I hate Christmas. Yes, I’m a girl who hates the holidays.

My entire, enormous family is already enjoying their holiday vacation in Iceland, but thanks to my busy job and having to meet them there, I’m late. They could have chosen any holiday to fly across the world, but Christmas won, which sent me scrambling because the end of the year is my busiest time. It’s difficult to carve out moments to see the family at all.

So, now, I’m forty thousand feet in the air, trying to get to Iceland before Christmas morning, all while also attempting to get some work done. If only the hot guy next to me would leave me be.

Dylan says I should put the work away until after my holiday and relax a bit. And while his suggestion of spending some time together on the north Atlantic island seems preposterous, I can’t help but feel intrigued when he promises to show me how to enjoy the Yuletide season properly.

After all, I can’t possibly spend every minute with my family.

But how do I just shrug off my duty to my job and throw caution to the wind for a stranger…no matter how handsome he is? Because that’s something else about me: I never throw caution to the wind—even a beautiful, blustery Icelandic wind.

Then again, Mama always said, “Never say never…”

Keep reading for a look inside The Scramble!

“Okay, this is going to be the craziest story I’ve ever told you, and you can’t tell the cousins.”

She blinks at me in surprise. “All right. Give it to me.”

“I didn’t know him until I got on that airplane. And then we fucked in the bathroom.”

She just keeps blinking. “On the airplane?”

“Yes.”

I chew my bottom lip, waiting for her response.

“I know people talk about it all the time but is that even possible? I mean, they’re so small.”

“You don’t need much room.” I smile to myself, hearing Dylan’s words echoing in my head.

“Oh, I like that smile.” She sits up, crosses her legs, and then hugs the pillow to her chest. “I like it a lot. That’s a satisfied smile.”

“Yeah, well, it was fun.”

“Did you just say fun?”

“If you say a word about me not being fun, I’ll come over there and break your nose.”

“You always were violent. I’d say you got it from Dad, but despite being a former SEAL, he might be the gentlest human alive. Okay, so, there were airplane shenanigans.”

“Yes.”

“What else?”

“He just flirted with me, practically the whole flight. And he’s nice. Which is weird.”

“I know they seem to be fewer and fewer these days, but there are nice guys out there.”

“Yeah, well, we seem to be related to ninety percent of them. Anyway, I don’t know much about Dylan other than what he does for a living and that the sex is beyond anything I’ve ever had before.”

“Honey, as a woman well into her thirties, it’s about damn time. I’m glad we talked you into staying the week. Now, you can hang out with Dylan more. Have a vacation fling. If that’s all it is, it’s still time well spent.”

“Huh. I never considered a vacation fling.”

Tracey’s Review

One of my favorite things about the Montgomery family is that it’s so big! This gives me hope that Kristen Proby has many more stories to tell about some of my all-time best-loved characters, because every adventure with them is literally one for the books. Case in point, THE SCRAMBLE, the latest novella in Kristen’s Single in Seattle series.

Like all of the Montgomery women, Maddie is strong, savvy, and committed to her king-sized family, the last of which has her on a flight to Iceland to spend Christmas with them. The last thing that she’s expecting is to meet a man, especially one that will have her stepping outside of her comfort zone in so many ways.

Dylan is a great match for Maddie, getting her to try new things, to make time to enjoy life, and to reevaluate the life that she’s living. Best of all, though, he truly likes Maddie for who she is, and is key in her being able to come out of the shell that she’s developed over the years. As a couple, they are supportive, sweet, and definitely steamy.

Insta-love doesn’t always do it for me, but it just works in Maddie’s and Dylan’s case. And while THE SCRAMBLE takes place at Christmastime, it is the perfect little taste of sugar and spice for anytime, and a great next link in the Montgomery chain that will leave you happy and ready for more. ❤️

About Kristen Proby:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Blurb:
Lights. Camera. Action
I’ve got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.
But Los Angeles is full of hot, young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.
Well, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.
So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I’m not—goodbye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.
‘Liam’ and his talent with accents is enough to get myfoot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.
Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.
On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.
As my — I mean, Liam’s — budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.
While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.
Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard… Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I’m wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won’t see coming.

*This first-person, male-POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.

Tracey’s Review

If you’re a fan of romance audio, there is no way that you are not familiar with the dulcet tones of narrator extraordinaire, Joe Arden. But he didn’t stop there, because Joe can now add romance author to his resumé, and proudly. THE CHAMELEON EFFECT is Joe’s first solo project, and it just goes to show that the man with the golden voice is a man of many talents.

I’m all for a story that’s got a secret anything going on, and THE CHAMELEON EFFECT has a whopper. Shenanigans aside, though (and there were plenty!), the thing that I liked the most is that this story is written, in large part, from Liam’s point of view, and that’s a rare thing in Romance Land. It made for a very different experience, and really helped make this story stand out.

Liam and Raven have great chemistry right from the get-go, and I love that she’s such a kick-butt chick, one that I would totally want to hang out with. The way that Liam relates to not just Raven, but to his family, especially his niece, Lexi, and his best friend Devontay makes Liam more even more likable, and were some of my favorite scenes in the book.

THE CHAMELEON EFFECT is a win for me, and I hope that Joe’s got more books coming our way. In the meantime, I cannot wait to get this story in my ears, because Joe’s voice was narrating in my head the entire time I was reading, and that, my friends, is a very good thing. Happy reading (and listening!). ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

Wicked as Seduction by Shayla Black is now live!

He’ll protect her…even if he has to take her captive to save her.

Tech wiz and former elite soldier Forest “Trees” Scott had one mission: Rescue the woman being hunted by a vicious cartel and get her to safety. It should have been simple…but the minute he sees the wary beauty with haunted eyes, his desire for her complicates everything. So does her stubborn refusal to trust him. When Trees is forced to abduct her, she vows to hate him–even as he finds himself falling in love…

For six years, Laila Torres has known nothing but brutality at the hands of men, so when the massive stranger with the forbidding mien kidnaps her, she’s frightened–and furious. But the giant’s protective care shocks her. With every word, he proves steadfast. With every forbidden touch, he awakens the woman in her. Soon, she’s facing the terrifying realization that he’s also dangerously close to capturing her heart.

But their ruthless enemies are closing in, threatening everything Laila holds dear. When she’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice, will she trust Trees and their love to save her?

Tracey’s Reviews

It’s been a minute since I’ve read a book by Shayla Black, but I jumped right in to WICKED AS SEDUCTION: TREES & LAILA PART 1 without realizing that theirs is a story that has been building as part of the backstory in prior books in the Wicked & Devoted series. Even so, I had no trouble reading this solely as the first part of their complicated, steamy, thrill-packed story, and can’t wait to see what’s next.

It was nice to see such a spitfire of a heroine in Laila, one that kept Trees on his toes and then some. I’m really hoping that Part Two of their story continues in the same vein, because it really did add something. I mean, it’s nice to have a (sometimes) gentle giant around to save the day, but where’s the fun if there’s no spark?

If romantic suspense with an, ahem, dominant side is your bag, this is definitely the book for you. I would suggest starting with the first books and working your way through, but, as said, if you just want Laila and Trees, this book can be read as a standalone, and as the first part of a two-book package. Shayla seals the deal with a cliffy that will definitely have you (and me!) coming back for more, and Part 2 can’t get here quickly enough. ❤️

 


Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than eighty contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances. Her books have sold millions of copies and been published in a dozen languages.

Tracey’s Review
Winter Stevens never thought that she’d be raising her best friend’s daughter with no help from the father that left her friend when she needed him most. Harry Stone, sports legend, veteran, philanthropist, and, oh yes, player extraordinaire. Winter hates the very mention of his name, and when Harry comes back into the picture, she’s sure that he’s up to no good. But people aren’t always what they seem…

It’s always nice to return to a book world that I’ve enjoyed in the past. As a very happy fan of both the Cocky Hero world created by authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, and the books of Brenda Rothert, it was a pleasure to read POMPOUS PLAYER, Brenda’s contribution to the Cocky Hero Club.

Harry Stone may be one of my favorite of Brenda’s hockey men. Not only has he been a member of the Chicago Blaze hockey team, he’s also served his country, and gone on to continue to help others. Pretty much the whole package, unless you’re Winter Stevens, and you’re convinced that he’s the most selfish jerk you’ve ever met. But the Harry that Winter meets isn’t quite what she was expecting, and it’s not long before she’s having to take a good long look at the man that he actually is now.

Brenda works her usual magic here, crafting a story that takes two very different people and brings them together. Winter and Harry are more than they appear to be, and, once they start working as a team, there’s no stopping them and their feelings.

POMPOUS PLAYER is a nice addition to both the Cocky Hero world and the world of the Chicago Blaze. Sparks, sass, cooperation, and, finally, love, are all on the menu in this book, and Brenda brings it all together to give us an ultimately heartwarming and feel-good read with some spice for the win. A very enjoyable read, and one that I’m happy to recommend. ❤️

Headhunter: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live!

 

Things have never been more intense in New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

As the son of one of the States’ most prominent mob bosses, Shane Martinelli’s always been immersed in society’s shady underbelly. Learning to navigate it and keep to the edges was working just fine until an acquaintance turns up missing, and he fears the worst. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he hasn’t stopped thinking about her. Luckily, as an ex-special operative, he’s uniquely qualified to track her down and keep her safe. Unfortunately, nobody’s making that easy–not the people who took her nor the woman herself.

Ivie Jordan has led a pretty uneventful life, and that’s just how she likes it. Especially since she’ll be the first to admit that she doesn’t do so well in social situations. She’s a proud business owner, and while she doesn’t have family, she does have a network of people who look out for her. Little did she know that being accepted into that fold came with a laundry list of issues. When the worst happens, and she’s forced to rely on the ruggedly handsome alpha hero who comes to her rescue, she discovers her inner badass–and the sultry vixen on her other shoulder.

Too bad the two of them are literally running for their lives and trying to ensure the safety of those they love. There is way more at stake than meets the eye.

It’s time for the hunted to become the hunters.

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Wild Beauty by Audrey Carlan

“Audrey Carlan has a way with words that cannot be denied.” –Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author

Wild Beauty, an all-new beautifully written contemporary romance in the Soul Sisters series of standalones by #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now!

My life has never been easy. Not from the day I took my first breath until now. Only days old, I was placed in a laundry basket and left in front of a firehouse. I never knew who my parents were before being shuffled around from one bad foster home to another. Until the day I arrived at Kerrighan House.

My safe haven.

My home.

I was welcomed with open arms into a world where love and sisterhood were the rule, not the exception. From that moment on, I believed I was safe. That nothing bad could touch me.

I was so wrong.

Neither my success as a full-figured lingerie and fashion model nor my street smarts as a born and bred Chicago native, safeguarded me against walking into the clutches of a monster.

As I try to pull my life back together, I’m brought face to face with a man whose wounds mirror my own. Under his protection, I’m gifted the opportunity to find beauty where there has only ever been pain. And yet, danger lurks, as a new evil threatens to bring me to my knees.

Can my savior protect me, or has my fate been sealed?

Note: Each book in the Soul Sister series can be read as a standalone.

Tracey’s Review

Although Addison Michaels-Kerrighan and her family have been through utter hell, she’s back and ready to get on with her life, with the help of her loving foster family. But when it appears that the madman that terrorized her and two of her sisters isn’t finished with them, she’s going to need the love and support of her loved ones more than ever.

Whoo, y’all, this family. I tell you, they have been put through the wringer, and that’s the truth. After the sweet but angsty start to the Soul Sister series in WILD CHILD, author Audrey Carlan keeps bringing the suspense, the sizzle, and the action in WILD BEAUTY, the second book in the series.

Audrey has done a great job of world building with these books, giving her characters diverse and definitive personalities that come together to make the best kind of family, the one that is created not necessarily by blood, but by choice. The action and suspense are off the charts, and kept me guessing what was coming next, and although I am not typically a fan of insta-love, the romance piece is done quite nicely, and I am totally here for it.

The next sister to get her story is pepper pot Liliana, with WILD SPIRIT, and I can only imagine that the sass will be strong with that one, and I cannot wait. In the meantime, if romantic suspense is your jam (and even if it isn’t, because these books are absolutely readable page-turners), you must dig in and meet this WILD BEAUTY. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Bet the Farm by Staci Hart

Bet the Farm is LIVE and available from your favorite online book retailer! This heartfelt, flirty story of opposites attract from Staci Hart is just what you need. Happy reading! 💕

Amazon | Apple Books | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads

Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer. 

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other. 

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.

 

Tracey’s Review

Okay, a lactose intolerant girl inherits half a dairy farm…it’s only going to get better after such a great beginning. Per usual, Staci Hart writes with plenty of soul, infusing BET THE FARM with wit, whimsy, and all of the feels, and I just loved it.

Staci has plenty of tropes going with BET THE FARM…small town romance, opposites attract, resisting the attraction, city girl versus country boy, and they all meld together perfectly in this romantic comedy that had me from the very beginning. Even though Jake and Livi were fighting the very obvious pull between them, I couldn’t wait for them to get it together and, well, get together.

BET THE FARM couldn’t have come at a better time. This is the kind of book that just hits all of the marks, and is a pure pleasure to read. Book slump? Read this book. Need a book to lift you out of the winter doldrums? Read this book. Just love a good rom-com that will deliver all of the ‘com,’ but with plenty of emotion? Read this book. And when you do read it? Enjoy. ❤️

 

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

My shy, awkward exterior doesn’t help. After all, Beacon’s the cool one, not me–I play the cello at Carnegie Hall, and he’s a heartthrob.

The famous frontman of the band Too Far From Grace. Every woman wants him, every guy…either wants to be like him or wants him too.

I decide to play devil’s advocate, and hire Beacon to teach me the dating ropes. Maybe if we work together, we can find me a guy we both approve of.

Except, moving to Baker’s Creek to work on this experiment isn’t working the way I planned. Seems like he’s doing everything to convince me that I don’t need a man. After all, I have him.

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga packed with the perfect mix of angst, tears, and laughs. If you like strong heroines & alpha males, steamy romances, and witty love stories, this series is for you!

Tracey’s Reviews

All right, so straight talk. I’ve only ever read one other book by Claudia Burgoa, and it wasn’t in the Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series. So, I was feeling more than a little bit lost as I got into Beacon’s and Grace’s story in CALL YOU MINE. There is a lot going on here, and some of it seemed to come out of, well, nowhere. BUT…The more I read, the more I loved the zany and very different members of Beac’s family, and the more I loved Beac and Grace, both separately and together.

These two are absolutely and unequivocally two sides of the same coin. I mean, there is no Beacon without Grace, and vice versa, not really. Their hearts beat for each other, and that’s the truth of it. And thank goodness, because they each need the love that they share to make it through some very iffy moments, but that’s all that I’ll say about that, because, spoilers.

Suffice to say that I didn’t quite know where I’d landed when I started reading this book, but I was absolutely and utterly enchanted by the end. I do feel like I need to go back and read the preceding books, both for clarity and for enjoyment, and I strongly suggest that you do, as well. Read them in order, I mean. Because CALL YOU MINE is a treasure, and I think that romance lovers will fall in love like I did, but some background is a good thing. So, go, go forth and meet these brothers, and enjoy. ❤️

About Write Before Christmas:

You’ve probably heard of me.
Reclusive fantasy author turned famous when his series got developed into a mega TV hit.
Except now I’m way behind deadline, and the whole world is waiting to see what I’ll write next.
The pressure is getting to me, and I. Can’t. Write.
Cue: small town where people don’t recognize me.
Cue: my assistant insisting on a personal chef to keep me fed and nothing more.
Cue: finding the first bit of inspiration I’ve felt in months whenever she’s around…
Am I a walking cliche now, or what?
Dani Cooper seems to have her own hurdles to jump this holiday season. Newly divorced, looking for her next move. She’s the first person who’s seen me for me in way too long. And I see her, too–as way more than just an employee, a divorcee, a cook. She’s becoming my muse…
But when my Christmas deadline hits, will it spell the end of us, too?
