About Creole Kingpin:


New York Times bestselling author Meghan March goes back to New Orleans and the world of Lachlan Mount with a dangerous and bold new anti-hero. 


The thing about ghosts is they’re supposed to stay dead. 

That’s exactly what I am, but I can’t stay away from Magnolia Marie Maison for one more day, let alone another year.

We’ve already got fifteen of those between us.

As it stands, she’ll want to kill me as soon as she lays eyes on me. And knowing her, she’s completely up to the task.

But I’m a man on a mission, and I’ve got everything riding on this.

So, here I come, Magnolia. This ghost is ready for whatever you got.

After all, there’s only one way I want this to end—’til death do us part.

Creole Kingpin is the first book in the Magnolia Duet. Magnolia’s story concludes in Madam Temptress releasing April 14, 2020.

Tracey’s Review

So. Former New Orleans madame with one heck of a story to tell…Scary as heck mysterious anti-hero, with just the promise that there’s some redemption down the road. Characters born from the writing genius of Meghan March, one of my absolute favorites. How could CREOLE KINGPIN, the first book in Meghan’s Magnolia Duet, be anything short of amazing? Only possible answer: it can’t.

This story the perfect addition to the world that Meghan created in her Mount Trilogy. Y’all know how much I love me some Lachlan Mount, and his dark ways, and it just seems fitting that these two are orbiting that same sphere. Magnolia, with her kick-ass self, a strong woman rising from the ashes of a past that we’ve only seen hints of. And Moses, a man that honestly scared the bejeezus out of me when we first met him in the Legend Trilogy. These two have “a past,” and it’s got to be one heck of a story to have made these characters into who they are.

In typical Meghan fashion, the questions are not going to be answered quickly nor easily. No, this story’s been 15 years in the making, so a roller coaster ride seems perfectly fitting. You know, all the rises and dips before coming to the end and bringing it all together. I, for one, want to see where Magnolia and Moses go, and cannot wait to get these grabby hands on MADAME TEMPTRESS. Come on, Meghan, put a girl out of her misery…❤️

New Release + Release Blast + 4 Star Review: Maybe Swearing Will Help by Lani Lynn Vale


Release Date: March 10 

Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies.
He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs.
Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact that she could get away with things that he couldn’t. Things that she then blames on him and he always gets punished for.
Fast forward to adulthood, and Ashe is still off limits. Still driving him insane. Still…beautiful.
She never misses an opportunity to give him hell, either.
That has to be why he agrees to do a photoshoot for KPD SWAT that’ll benefit her charity even when he’d rather shoot himself in the foot with his duty weapon.
Ashe never thought he’d agree.
Honestly, she thought she’d ask him, he’d say no, and that’d be the end of it.
She never realized that she’d leave his photo up in her cubicle, and it’d be the last thing that she saw every night as she locked her office door.
When they were kids, Ford used to be that boy that threw dirt at her and pulled her hair.
Now, he’s the same Ford Spurlock, only a whole lot sexier. And a lot harder to say no to.
When he challenges her to one date, she has no other recourse but to agree.
What she didn’t agree to was falling in love with Mr. March. Or wanting to give him everything she had to give.

Tracey’s Review

Ford Spurlock and Ashe Trammell have a long and storied history, meaning, they have known and competed with each other for as long as they can remember. Now that they’re grown, nothing much has changed, except, maybe, for the way that they’re coming to see each other. Their wagers, though, they’re just as fierce as ever, and this one’s a doozy.

I’m a big-time fan of enemies, or, rather, frenemies-to-lovers stories, and MAYBE SWEARING WILL HELP has plenty of this and more. I think that the thing that I like most about books by Lani Lynn Vale is the quirkiness. I mean, yes, there’s romance, yes, there’s some suspense, but I can say for sure that Lani’s characters are definitely not boring or run-of-the-mill, and that’s the real draw for me. I am enjoying the books in her KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series so much, and it’s because I know that I’m going to have the best time while the stories unfold.

This is the third book in a series, so not only builds on past books, but paves the way for future plot and action. I am entirely enthralled with this world, and cannot wait to read more of what LLV has up her sleeve. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 4.5 Star Review: Enticing Liam by Kristen Proby

Enticing Liam - RB banner.jpg

Kristen Proby brings an all new story in her bestselling Big Sky Royal Trilogy series!

Enticing Liam, an all new stand-alone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby is now LIVE!

Enticing Liam AMAZON.jpg

Princess Eleanor has had it up to her royal eyeballs. She’s surrounded by suitable men, each more rude and obnoxious than the last. None of them are worthy of her heart—not to mention her virginity. So what’s a girl to do? Flee to Montana to stay with her brother, lay low, and avoid both the media and the men, that’s what.

Liam Cunningham is the head of security in Montana for the royal family. For a man who has seen the worst of human nature in the Army, being in Cunningham Falls is a balm to his tattered soul.

Princess Eleanor, on the other hand, is a royal pain in the butt. She’s proven in the past that she’s a troublemaker. She’s also beautiful, smart, and everything good in life that he doesn’t deserve.

But when Ellie proposes the idea of Liam being her sex coach, how can he resist?

Tracey’s Review

So, after getting a nice alpha-y taste of Liam Cunningham in ENCHANTING SEBASTIAN, there was no way that I wasn’t all lined up to get more of him in his very own book, ENTICING LIAM, the second book in Kristen Proby’s Big Sky Royals series. Was I disappointed? Not even a little bit, friends.

Liam Cunningham is a man with plenty of ghosts, ghosts that have shaped his dedication to keeping those in his care safe and sound. They’ve also made him more than a little afraid to open his heart. But then along comes Princess Eleanor, or Ellie, youngest member of England’s royal family, and Liam’s unexpected charge.

Away from home, Ellie is light to Liam’s dark, enjoying Cunningham Falls, Montana, and the freedom that being there brings. And spending time watching over Ellie shows Liam a side of her that makes falling for her so very easy, even if he does so kicking and screaming most of the way.

I’m never not going to love a Kristen Proby book. Tight-knit family, girlfriend groups, a hot bodyguard, and a royal love affair with a touch of the illicit make ENTICING LIAM a “happy place” read for me. I can’t get enough of Kristen’s worlds, and I really can’t wait to see what she’s got planned for Prince Callum and one very feisty red-headed coffee shop owner from Montana. ❤️



About Kristen:

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 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 cats.

New Release + Release Blitz + Excerpt: Runaway Road by Devney Perry


We are so excited to celebrate the release of RUNAWAY ROAD, the first book in the Runaway series from author Devney Perry. This book stole our hearts, and we know that you’ll love it, too, so make sure to grab your copy today!



Londyn McCormack didn’t have a typical childhood. She ran away from home at sixteen, escaping parents more interested in drugs than their daughter. She doesn’t have loving siblings or an adorable pet. Her only family is the five other runaway kids who shared her junkyard home.

Life pulled them all in separate directions, taking her to Boston. For a short time, she thought she’d found something permanent. But after a devastating divorce, she’s running away again, this time to find a lost friend.

She’s driving across the country in her convertible. As a teenager, the rusty car was her shelter. As an adult, it’s her ride to freedom.

Except one flat tire derails her trip. Her life collides with Brooks Cohen. They walked away from the first crash. The second might destroy them both.

“When was the last time you had pie for dinner?”

“Can’t say I ever have.”

Her fork dove into the chocolate cream. She hummed and her eyes drifted closed when the bite passed her lips. She savored it, rolling it around in her mouth. The woman had a talented tongue—lucky pie. She moaned again, torturing me with the subtle sound.

She swallowed, then shot me a smile that was pure sex. “You’re missing out.”

I snapped my fingers, raising my hand in the air to flag down the waitress. When she came over, I pointed to Londyn’s plate. “I’ll have that.”


Tracey’s Review

Londyn McCormack is used to running. She’s been doing it for most of her life, and when the most recent chapter of her life takes a turn for the worse, the open road calls. But life has a way of making us slow down and appreciate things that might go unnoticed if we pass by too quickly. Sometimes our best lives can be found in the most unexpected people and places…

I’m an avowed Devney Perry fan. She writes it, I’ll read it. But I am not afraid to say that RUNAWAY ROAD, the first book in her new Runaway series, stole my heart and won’t let it go. And, you know what? I’m going to make the claim right here that this is one of my favorite of her books, like, ever.

I really like Londyn. For someone with her past, she’s darned good at picking herself up and making the most of things. But, as far as she’s come, she’s never forgotten the people that made up her family of choice, and the time seems right to reconnect with them. But…Life. Fate apparently has other plans in mind for Londyn, in the place of Summers, West Virginia, and the person of one Brooks Cohen.

Brooks Cohen, y’all. Can I just say, yes, please and thank you. He’s the real deal, a man of integrity and passion that makes settling down in a small town in West Virginia seem like the best idea ever. If there weren’t already many reasons to spend some time getting to know and love Summers, West Virginia, he’s it.

RUNAWAY ROAD is one of those books that goes by in a flash because it’s just so completely enjoyable that it’s hard to put it down. The characters, the chemistry, the setting, and Devney’s gift with words made this an easy 5-star read for me, and one that fans of contemporary small town romance with a pinch of suspense are going to love. Do you want it on your TBR? Yes, you most assuredly do. Grab it, read it, fall in love with these characters, and get ready for more Runaway goodness, because there’s plenty more to come. ❤️





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.

New Release + Release Blitz: The Sinful King by Claire Contreras

TSK - RB banner.jpg

The Sinful King, a new, sexy, 100% stand-alone novel by New York Times bestselling author, Claire Contreras, is LIVE!

Copy of TheSinfulKing AMAZON.jpg

If you had any ties to Marbella, it was impossible for you not to have heard the stories about Prince Elias and his debauchery.

Every summer he arrived with his security detail and friends in tow and rented out a row of cottages near the water.

Cottages that belonged to my family.

Each of those summers, my parents sent me away – summer camp and later, boarding school. Anything to keep me away from the royals and their partying.

I hadn’t been home in years, but when I finally come back for the summer, I see that not much has changed. Like all the summers I’d been gone, Prince Elias is back, but this time with an incognito security detail and no friends. This time, there is no partying, no noise, no crowds. No reason at all to even think he was there.

I’m given strict orders not to talk to him, not to even look in his direction, but he makes this an impossible task. I may be doing everything in my power to stay away from him, but there is no one in the world who can say no to the future King of France.

Tracey’s Review

I am not necessarily a fan of royal romances. There, I said it. BUT…When author Claire Contreras writes a book that is a royal romance AND a second chance romance AND a real Cinderella story, I say that I am all in. Triple play for the win, Claire.

I liked Adeline right off the bat. I mean, who hasn’t done things that they wish had never happened? She’s taken herself off to Marbela, the place that feels like a home away from home for her, and is giving the tempest some time to cool down. Adeline is all about doing her thing, and telling it like it is. Yep, even when she’s trash talking the heir to the throne of France, who just happens to be listening.

Was Elias my favorite from the get-go? Well, sure, he’s hot, but not always the nicest guy. But he grew on me. I mean, it can’t be easy to be ‘on’ all of the time, always in the public eye. All he wants is to be the leader that his country needs, while still following his heart. And his heart (and, yep, all of those other parts) wants Adeline.

I was hooked from the beginning of THE SINFUL KING, highly entertained, and rooting for these two to make things work their way. And not only was this book the perfect addition to my TBR, the writing, the characters, and the storyline all combine to create a world that I can’t wait to visit again. If you’re a fan of royal watching, you will love THE SINFUL KING, so make sure to pop it in you’re reading line-up and enjoy. ❤️

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!

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…

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:!
