Tracey’s Review

Oh, hi. I’m just over here, trying to put my heart back together. You know, the usual follow-up to finishing any book by A.L. Jackson. Once again, Amy has wrung every possible emotion out of me, written a book that destroyed me and built me back up in a way that only she can, and I am loving it.

I knew. I mean, having read the first two books in the Falling Stars series, I knew that Richard Ramsey had some dark secrets, secrets that he was holding close, secrets that had the power to destroy everything that he held dear. What I wasn’t expecting was his depth, the way that his heart beat for so many people, and the lengths that he had gone and would go to to share that love. I fell in love with Richard, in all of his beautiful brokenness.

Violet. I do believe that I fell in love with Violet, too. Carrying such a heavy weight in her heart, she’s proven herself stronger than the despair that changed her life to bring beauty to the world around her. Her heart beats with the amor, amor, amor that helped make her the person that she is, a bringer of light and love.

I’m not going to lie, there are dark things in this book, things that broke my heart. But, as much as it is almost physically painful to get through her books sometimes, Amy, bless her, is a bringer of light and love, too, so take solace in the knowledge that there is joy on the other side. FALLING INTO YOU is light and darkness, gain and loss, pain and joy, and it is one of the most intense books that I have read lately. It’s also, no surprise, one of the best books that I’ve read this year, and is, of course, an immediate favorite. If you haven’t dived into this world, you are truly missing out, and the members of Carolina George should be very high atop your TBR. Do yourself a favor and get to know them all. ❤️

P.S. Do not read this book before you have to be anywhere, because you will be a blubbering mess. ❤️

Blakely Foxx is about to turn the big 4-0 and Slade Henderson thinks she’s hotter because of it.

Flirting with 40 by K. Bromberg is now live! 

An all new flirty, lighthearted, standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg guaranteed to make you swoon. Blakely Foxx is having one of those years.

There isn’t enough wine or ice cream in the world to convince her things will turn around. When Blakely meets Slade Henderson, she’s left wondering why an early-thirties, hotter than hell, cardiothoracic surgeon would take an interest in her.

Not only is he helping her get that promotion, but in the process, he’s encouraging her to find the parts of herself she’s lost over the past few years. Slade shows her that good guys really do exist, but who knew the hardest part about turning forty would be realizing the man you thought was a rebound, is actually your happily ever after?

Tracey’s Review

It has been a hot minute since I’ve read a book by Kristy Bromberg, and I could not have found a more enjoyable way to dive back in than FLIRTING WITH 40. I’m not going to lie, this book is pure unadulterated pleasure, and I enjoyed every single page.

As a woman of a certain age, I identified with Blakely. Not only did her husband leave her for a younger woman, Blakely has had a hard time remembering that she is all of that and a bag of chips. For real, she’s smart, savvy, beautiful, funny, and, yeah, she’s almost reached the Big 4-0, but with maturity and her experience, she has seriously got so much to offer.

It takes a chance encounter in a bar with a very attractive and attentive man to kick off her journey back to herself, and what a way to go. Slade is my absolute favorite new book boyfriend. With plenty on his own plate, he jumps in to help Blakely see herself the way that he sees her, and regain the confidence to go for the things that she both wants and deserves in her life.

Kristy had me from the first page with this book, earning it a spot among my top favorite reads of this year. If a book grabs me by the heartstrings and won’t let go, while still managing to be sassy and sexy, too, it’s a keeper. FLIRTING WITH 40 is 4.5 stars of delightfulness, and a definite must-read for fans of contemporary romance with some angst thrown in. I could read books like this all day long, and if Kristy’s writing them, I’m all in. Make a place on your TBR for this one, and enjoy. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Vibe by Liza James

Release Date: September 10
 

This wasn’t the life I was meant to live. 


According to my family, to The Nation, I should be working on my ascension. 

 

But I couldn’t. Not after everything I’d seen, everything they made me do.

 

After everything that had been done to me. I had to run away.
Now, it’s been years of living on the outside in a life I thought I had finally pulled together.

Until I met her. She changed everything for me.Slowly, the cracks of my facade began crumbling, revealing the secrets I hadn’t realized were buried around my seemingly mundane life.

I should run again, but with her by my side? I think we can tear everything down together.

 

TRIGGER WARNING: This book confronts serious issues that can be potential triggers, such as rape, drugs, and violence. It does contain scenes in which sexual content is written in explicit detail.

Ashley’s Review

Dark enticing chemistry that explodes off the pages, Vibe has me captivated beyond anything I expected.
Aura escaped her past but hasn’t forgotten it. The nightmares are still vivid and the past is still very real. Adapting to adulthood she’s content, she’s got a handsome boyfriend, a best friend and a successful photography business but somethings still amiss.
Ruby is beautiful. She’s mysterious. She’s sexual.
When Aura and Ruby meet, the universe shifts. It’s aligned in the stars. It’s fate.
Their love is dark. It’s tragic. It’s twisted. It’s real and nothing will destroy it.
This book is F/F but I’m not going to lie, it was hot AF!!!
This book will stick with you long after you’ve finished. Amazingly written and completely intoxicating, you’ll find yourself consumed by this story.
5 stars of twisted perfection.

 

 

 

 

 

Meet Liza James

 

I remember writing my first book when I was just a kid. It was a short children’s story that my mom loved so much, she took the time to get our friend to illustrate all of the pages. 

 

I had decided back then, that when I grew up I was going to be an author. Funny how we grow up and things change so drastically, right? As I got older, I began the age old search of trying to figure out exactly what I wanted in life. 
 
I got married at 18, moved across the world with my husband and spent the next several years trying so many different things in order to find my fit. I fell in love with so many things as well, including photography, calligraphy, music, and letterpress. 
 
But writing and reading have always remained a constant love of mine. Oddly enough, it was the only thing I never spoke about. I kept it very private, starting several different stories and ultimately not finishing them. I never spoke about what I was writing with anyone, or very very few people once in a while. I didn’t even share what I wrote with my family or my husband.
 
This year, a lot of things changed. I found myself coming to a place in my life as a mom, a wife, a friend, but still not as MYSELF. I continued struggling with my own identity, struggling with who I was outside of being a wife and mother. So, I made it a goal to write and finish my first novel in 2019. I decided to CHOOSE my path and create it for myself, choose my identity and allow my passion for writing to come at the forefront of that. 
 
I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a friend and a lover of many many things. But I am also a writer, I’m an author, and loving every moment of embracing myself in all of those things.
 
So, here I am today, writing this blurb about my “story” and laughing to myself just a bit. Because this is just the beginning of what my story was and is going to be, and I’m ready to embrace whatever this new adventure has for me.

New Release + Release Blitz + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 5 Star Review: Quarter Miles by Devney Perry

We are so excited to celebrate the release of QUARTER MILES, the third book in the Runaway series from author Devney Perry. This slow burn friends to lovers romance will give you ALL of the feels, so grab your copy and dive in today!

 

 

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

EXCERPT

“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.

“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”

“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”

“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.

“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”

Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
Yes.

That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.

Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.

I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.

 

 

Tracey’s Review

I am more entranced with each book in the Runaway series by Devney Perry. More in love, more invested, more everything. I have been waiting for QUARTER MILES, Katherine’s and Cash’s book, since I reached the very last page of WILD HIGHWAY, because the promise of another great read was guaranteed, and I was not disappointed.

Unrequited love, forbidden love, friends to lovers, there’s all of this and more in QUARTER MILES. Katherine and Cash are a ticking time bomb, you know the type, just waiting for the right spark to ignite. The kind of unresolved tension that you can literally cut with a knife? Yeah, plenty of that here. Their road to happy is long and twisty, but when they get there, SO worth every bump.

Devney has cemented her place as a queen of contemporary romance, where small towns and family play a major role, and I cannot get enough. Her books consistently rank among my favorites, and are ones that I happily recommend as must-reads. I’m already dying for Aria’s story, FORSAKEN TRAIL, which can’t show up on my e-reader quickly enough. In the meantime, 5 stars for Katherine, Cash, and their heads and tails journey to love. ❤️

Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.

EXCERPT

I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.

“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.

The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin.

My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.

I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.

Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.

He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.

“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.

“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.

He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.

Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”

“Yes.”

“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.

I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”

His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”

Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.

But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.

 

Tracey’s Review

What author is going to take a beloved children’s series and build on it to create something totally new? Devney Perry, that’s who. I mean, I absolutely adored RUNAWAY ROAD, the first book in Devney’s Runaway series. I fell for Londyn and Brooks immediately, and I knew that this series was going to be a ‘move everything around if you have to, but read this’ kind of thing, because, OMG. Emotional and passionate, the books in this series are proving (no surprise) to hook me in from the first page, and keep me reading until the very last.

I love Devney’s storytelling, but even I wondered how she could follow up the first book in a way that would make the rest just as wonderful. Well, she did it. WILD HIGHWAY is imbued with all of the passion, all of the emotion, all of the ‘tug at the heartstrings and leave me a weeping mess’ intensity that I’d loved in RUNAWAY ROAD, plus some.

Gemma and Easton are second-chance romance at its finest. There is no way in the world that these two weren’t destined to be, because, even in the initial dance, you know, the one where they pretend that the other doesn’t exist, the pull between them was magnetic. Their story is filled not only with passion, but with heartache, with yearning, and, finally, love, and believe me when I say that I was a mess waiting for them to get to their happy.

I can’t get enough of these books, and I am dying to get my hands on QUARTER MILES, Katherine’s and Cash’s story, and next up in the series. In the meantime, 5 easy stars for WILD HIGHWAY, and a wholehearted recommendation to read these books. You will love them, I guarantee. ❤️

DP-SR-Teaser-2

Excerpt

By early afternoon, the crowd at the farmers’ market fades, leaving only stragglers, bargainers, and tourists sampling the charms of small town life.

I’ve had enough people for the week I’m looking forward to the quiet of my own company. All the talking and friendly chatter exhaust me. You’d think vegetables would sell themselves given they’re pretty self-explanatory. Yet folks wanna hear a story about a carrot being grown from the guy who pulled it out of the dirt himself. So I play my part of the happy farmer at the stand. It’s my bad luck I’ve always been charming. Part of my DNA.

My family has lived in the mountains surrounding Green Valley longer than anyone around here can remember. Before there was a National Park or even a Cades Cove, the Hills had established a homestead in the Smokies straddling Tennessee and North Carolina.

Because our last name is Hill, some people like to joke we put the hill in hillbilly. Jethro Winston for example. He’s hysterical. Some people think they have a sense of humor when they’re just being mean-spirited. As my Nannie Ida always says, glass houses provide good views, but then again, so do mirrors.

This is why I prefer the company of Patsy over most folks. She’s smart, a good listener, tidy, and doesn’t give a damn about my family and reputation. She has more class than a lot of the gossips and Sunday church-goers around here.

After I consolidate the remaining produce into crates and load up the van, I fold the tables and collapse my tent. While I work, the face of the brunette ranger floats through my mind.

She looked familiar but I didn’t recognize her name. It isn’t likely our paths have crossed. I don’t get out much and I’m not hanging around the bars or the visitor center in Cades Cove. Normally, one of my cousins covers the stand at the weekly farmers’ market and I can avoid the crowds. This is what happens when I let my guard down and am forced to engage with the public. I get iceberg and Bible quotes. I’ve never been a fan of either.

Bothered I’m still thinking about her, I close and lock up the van.

“Come on Patsy, let’s go for a walk.”

She gives a happy snort and steps closer to where her leash hangs on the top rail of her pen.

When the two of us stroll through town, folks stare. It’s worse when they insist on sharing a comment, tell the same old joke, and, in general, make a fuss. Honestly, I assume at this point people seeing the two of us together would be old news around here.

Guess some folks don’t have enough going on in their lives that they need to make commentary about people minding their own damn business.

I don’t understand what the big deal is about a man walking his pig.

Patsy’s excellent on a leash. Doesn’t pull. Has never instigated fights with dogs. Hasn’t bit anyone. Doesn’t do her business in the middle of the sidewalk. In my mind, she’s much better mannered than any old hound dog.

She’s pretty darn perfect in every conceivable way.

Except the one time she trampled Mrs. MacClure’s flower bed. Even that was my fault for not paying closer attention to where we were walking.

If I had to find fault with her, Patsy thinks she’s in charge. And she’s a little more than spoiled. I only have myself to blame.

“Clarice, please tell me you see that man walking his pig.” A woman shouts to her friend and points from about three feet away.

“I’m not invisible,” I tell her with a flat smile.

“Oh dear.” Her companion rolls her eyes. “You’re a tall drink of cool water, aren’t you?”

The question is rhetorical. Being compared to a refreshing beverage doesn’t require a response, so I remain quiet. Patsy tugs on her leash and releases a frustrated snort that we’ve stopped walking.

“You two have a nice day, m‘kay.” I step off the sidewalk to pass them.

I’d like to say their behavior is atypical. If I hear “You’re like the Jolly Green Giant. Only less green” one more time …

For the record, I am not jolly.

There must be something in the well water around here. We grow ‘em tall in Green Valley.

Does a pig need to be walked on leash for health and exercise? No.

I’m the only weirdo in all of Green Valley who likes to take my daily constitutional accompanied by a sow. Not even Cletus Winston is as much of an oddball as I am. And that’s saying something.

He’s only interested in pigs and boar in terms of sausage. In my opinion, he’s missing out. If we were friends, or even friendly acquaintances, I might suggest we partner up. Truffle salami can be incredible. Or so I remember. I don’t eat pork anymore. Not since I’ve had Patsy. I’d be offended if she ate human body parts around me.

Hogs will eat pretty much anything you give them. A few years ago a pig farmer went missing. Wife said he ran off with his mistress. Everyone believed her until his gold tooth turned up in the muck and mud of their hog pens. Macabre, but true.

I don’t eat pork and Patsy doesn’t eat me. It’s an unspoken pact between us.

Not that she’s some sort of demon pig crazed with bloodlust. Not at all. She’s the best pig in eastern Tennessee. Don’t need a blue ribbon from the state fair to make it true.

This leisurely stroll around town is all part of my ruse.

If someone sees us ambling someplace we don’t belong, they’ll leave us alone, which is the entire point.

There’s freedom in being a weirdo. Folks keep their distance. Sure, there are the asinine comments, but for the most part they assume I’m dim-witted or crazy. Fine by me. With or without my porcine sidekick, I’ve always been different. I learned early on that people like to form and hold onto their own opinions. Pointless to try to change someone’s mind. What they think of me is their problem, not mine.

 

Tracey’s Review

Okay, I’m just going to start off by saying that I absolutely adored this book. First off, it’s Daisy Prescott, and I was a diehard fan already. Add in that it’s part of the interestingly named but totally addictive Pennyverse (named for the book world created by author Penelope Reid), and also Odin Freaking Hill, and I am in love.

Daphne Baum is my kind of quirky. As the most recent addition to the team of rangers at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Daphne is in her element. Her past has made her a wanderer with a love of nature and a heart for the Divine. She’s also more than a little bit awkward, which makes her all the more engaging.

Odin Hill, of the Green Mountain Hills, has a storied past himself. He’s definitely marching to his own drum, and I absolutely love it. What I love even more is him and Daphne together. I honestly think that they’re surprised by each other, and the relationship that develops between them. But once they lean into it, their slow burn had me fanning myself, because it was all kinds of hot. I love a man that knows what he wants, and Odin definitely does, and he goes for it. And, let’s not forget, he has a pig. Named Patsy Swine. Does it get better than that?

Daisy has knocked it out of the park once again, because STRANGER RANGER is definitely on my list of recent favorite reads. Written with wit, humor, quirkiness, heat, and just the right amount of sweetness, this is a book that I would happily recommend, and will read again and again. ❤️

About THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Claire Contreras comes a new story in her Sexy Royals series…

Princess Pilar is tired of playing by the rules. She’s sick of the spotlight and being seen as the uptight goody-too-shoes the media has cast her to be. She’s especially tired of the fact that her brothers are allowed to run off and do whatever they want while she sits inside watching the world pass her by. That’s why she decides that while her older brothers are off on their usual summer holidays, she’s going to quietly pack her things and travel to the one place her parents have always forbidden her to step foot on – Ibiza.

As the star of the French premiere fútball league, Benjamin Drake has it all – the money, the cars, the clothing contracts, and any woman he wants. Problem is, the only woman Ben has ever wanted badly enough to stop partying is Princess Pilar, the one he can never, ever have. Despite his fame and achievements, in Pilar’s world, she’ll always be royalty and he’ll always be a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who got lucky. He’d never be accepted. He knows that. Yet, when he spots Pilar partying at the same club as him, all bets are off. He’s determined to get her in his bed, even if it’s just for one night.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Tracey’s Review

What do a rule-following princess, a sexy futball star, and a summer in Ibiza have in common, you ask? They’re at the heart of THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS, the new novella in the Sexy Royals series by author Claire Contreras.

The Sexy Royals series and 1001 Dark Nights is a match made in romance heaven. Having read THE SINFUL KING, I already knew that I was going to like Princess Pilar’s story, and THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS, a sizzly steamy semi-forbidden romance, hits all of the marks.

As French royalty, Pilar knows all about following the rules. But when a summer away from it all brings her and her longtime crush together, Pilar is ready to do a little rule breaking with pro athlete and playboy Benjamin.

What begins as a sexy ‘what happens in Ibiza stays in Ibiza’ interlude turns into something much more, because even though these two couldn’t be more different, what they end up finding in each other is more than just a fling.

Now that both Pilar and her brother Elias have found their HEAs, only one royal sibling’s story remains. I can’t wait to see what Claire has up her sleeve for bad boy Aramis, because it promises to be all kinds of good. In the meantime, grab the first two sexy royals and enjoy. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Stone Princess by Devney Perry

 

We are excited to celebrate the release of STONE PRINCESS, the third book in the Tin Gypsy series from author Devney Perry. We have been waiting for Presley’s and Shaw’s book for forever, and it is SOOOO worth the wait. We know that you’ll love it, too, so make sure to grab your copy today!

 

 

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

EXCERPT:

My realtor would have earned a higher commission if she had mentioned that the woman who lived next door was Presley Marks. “Isn’t this a surprise?”

“Is it?” Presley asked, frowning as I descended my steps and crossed the lawn, meeting her in her driveway. She raised a dark blond eyebrow. “Because it sort of feels like stalking.”

I chuckled. “I swear I had no idea you lived next door.”

But what a bonus. I wouldn’t have to make excuses to stop by the garage to see her. She could tear that insurance waiver to shreds. Presley had to know I didn’t give a damn about that bike they were building for me.

“You bought this house?”

“Yeah.” I reached for the grocery bags she had in her hands. “Here, let me help.”

She twisted away. “I’ve got them.”

“Come on.” I stepped forward and she took a step back. Wait, did she really think I was stalking her? “I’m just trying to help. I mean, I’ll probably start writing down your daily schedule so I can make sure our paths cross at least once a day. But that’s normal, right? For stalkers?”

“Are you being funny?”

My smile flattened. “I guess not.”

 

Tracey’s Review

I fall more in love with Clifton Forge and its residents with each of the books in the Tin Gypsy series by author Devney Perry. I had been looking forward to Presley’s story since the very first book, but I was not prepared for how much I was going to absolutely adore both her and Shaw. As usual, Devney sucked me right in, introducing me to another couple that goes right up on my list of favorites.

Along with great character development, there’s the usual kiss of suspense that is part of so many of Devney’s books, and I really appreciated the way that she continues to weave the stories of each character, each couple, into a beautiful and love-filled tapestry. The Gypsies and their circle are a real family, which is evident in every one of the relationships in these books.

This series just gets better and better, and I can’t wait to see what life holds for each of the characters. Luke’s book is up next, and, I have to admit, I kind of fell in love with him in STONE PRINCESS, so cue the breathless anticipation, because there’s no doubt in my mind that NOBLE PRINCE is going to deliver in the best way. If you haven’t started the Tin Gypsy series yet, you are truly missing out. Grab these books, and enjoy. ❤️

About the Author:

After working in the technology industry for nearly a decade, she abandoned conference calls and project schedules to enjoy a slower pace at home with her husband and two sons.

Tracey’s Review

With a cast of characters as powerful as they are infamous, there was no way that MADAM TEMPTRESS, the second and final book of the Magnolia Duet, could be anything other than fantastic. I have come to expect that Meghan will deliver no less than perfection, and I was, as usual, not disappointed. MADAM TEMPTRESS was all that I could have wanted in this story, and is the perfect second half to this action-packed duet.

Magnolia Maison and Moses Gaspard are Meghan March’s latest power couple, and they have rightfully earned their positions. Small-time players in the New Orleans game, these two have put in their time and risen to their positions of power. And talk about a love story that spans place and time, these two have never stopped loving each other.

There’s plenty of action, plenty of intrigue, and all of the usual suspects, making this trip back to NOLA sweeter than ever. This book, and its predecessor, are definitely not to be missed, so move them right up your TBR and enjoy. ❤️
