New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Down Too Deep by J. Daniels


Two single
parents and three adorable kids are about to have a summer they’ll never forget
in this sexy, heartwarming new novel of the New York Times bestselling


Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell spent
nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest
responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with
little Marley, but he doesn’t know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage
throws him a lifeline.



A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking
care of Nathan’s adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she
can. As the days go by and her attraction to Nathan grows, she can’t help
wondering what might happen if they became a family for real. And the closer
everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and
when hearts — both big and little — are on the line, the only thing scarier
than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.




Tracey’s Review

Oh, my gosh, I freaking loved this book! I forget sometimes how J. Daniels absolutely sucks me right the heck in with her books, and, man, I was ALL in for Jenna’s and Nathan’s story. I mean, everything, just EVERYTHING, about this book. I see a book hangover in my future…

It’s hard not to sound repetitive, but, man, I am SO in love with Nathan Bell. My heart just hurt for this man that was so mired in his own grief that he had never been able to look beyond it to connect with his daughter, Marley. When Jenna Savage shows up, she is just the lifeline he’s been missing. Jenna hasn’t had it particularly easy herself, but the circle that she casts is pure light, and Marley and Nathan can’t help but be drawn into it. It’s not long before these two are changing each other in all the best ways.

J. Daniels always writes the perfect mix of angst, steam, and pure unadulterated love, and DOWN TOO DEEP showcases this very well. I was drawn into the story, into the family and friend circle, into the intensity, from the very start, and I did not want to stop reading until the very end. This is what makes a book a 5 star read for me, and DOWN TOO DEEP is not only that, but one of my favorite books of this year.

Nate, Jenna, and their beautiful family will stay with me for a very long time, and I can’t wait to go back and catch up with the earlier books. DOWN TOO DEEP is one for the TBR, reader friends, and I guarantee, it will not disappoint. Make sure to get this one, and enjoy. ❤️

It’s my turn to rise up and save the people who matter most to me.

Tracey’s Review

Well, reader friends, I can say without reservation that Meghan March knows how to keep us invested. WHITE KNIGHT starts off with a bang, jumping right back into the thick of the action that was coming from every direction at the end of BLACK SHEEP. Man, this is mafia romance at its best, with twists, turns, and revelations enough to keep me guessing right up until the very end.

At the heart of it, WHITE KNIGHT is a love story, on more than one level. Romantic love, familial love, the bonds of friendship, they’re all here, and I fell more in love with Cannon, Drew, and all the rest of the far-flung members of their clan. And, at the end of it, Meghan’s done her usual wonderful job of bringing all the pieces together to give a story that I’ll remember for a long while to come.

As this is a duet, it is an absolute must to read BLACK SHEEP first, because you will be lost if you try to jump right in to this book. And, the truth is, you don’t want to miss one juicy detail, one action-packed minute, of the entire story, believe me. These Cassos are one complex bunch, and the surprises keep coming, one right after the other.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, we get the first look at Gabriel Legend, too, so, y’all, don’t be dawdling, make this duet a part of your must-be-read piles. You’ll be glad that you did. ❤️




About the author:

Making the jump from corporate lawyer to romance author was a leap of faith that New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Meghan March will never regret. With over thirty titles published, she has sold millions of books in nearly a dozen languages to fellow romance-lovers around the world. A nomad at heart, she can currently be found in the woods of the Pacific Northwest, living her happily ever after with her real-life alpha hero.

New Release + Release Blitz + 4.5 Star Review: Wrapped Up In You by Jill Shalvis

WUIY - RB banner.jpg

Kel’s been burned once too many times to believe in love, and yet Ivy makes him want things he never imagined. But when her surprising past intrudes, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a lie. Is he willing to fight for a true love story?

Wrapped Up in You, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Jill Shalvis is LIVE!

WUIY high res.jpeg

It’s love. Trust me.

After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.

Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

Tracey’s Review

I probably say this with each subsequent Jill Shalvis book that I read, but I’m going to say it again. This one is absolutely my favorite of the series. And it is, so far. 😍 WRAPPED UP IN YOU was just such an enjoyable read, filled with characters and situations that had me smiling a LOT, and laughing out loud more than once. Figure in the camaraderie, the affection between family, and friends that feel like family, and two main characters that are perfect for each other, and I was absolutely in romance heaven.

Kel and Ivy had me smiling from their first fiery meeting, and, even though they might not have known it, it was clear that there was no turning back for either one of them. Sure, each of them put on an ‘I’m just fine by myself, and I don’t need anyone’ front, but, come on, it’s Jill Shalvis, and it’s Heartbreaker Bay. Nobody escapes the magic of that danged Cow Hollow fountain. These two were goners before they even realized it.

I’ve found that the books in this series always have a little bit of everything. There’s emotion, attraction, angst, and a touch of suspense, and WRAPPED UP IN YOU has its share of each. Rather than end up in a weird mishmash, each piece fits together perfectly, making for one heck of a satisfying read. This book is not only another great addition to the Heartbreaker Bay collection, but to my growing list of holiday reads. The epilogue alone is a gift that will stay with me, and the perfect ending to this heartwarming read. If you’re looking for a feel-good read with a storyline that will reel you in, characters that will steal your heart, and smiles and sexiness galore, this is the book for you. Read it (and the rest of the series!) and enjoy. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 4.5 Star Review: Enchanting Sebastian by Kristen Proby


Enchanting Sebastian
by Kristen Proby
A Big Sky Royal Novel
Release Date: September 24, 2019
The first in an all new stand-alone trilogy set in Kristen Proby’s Big Sky world, Enchanting Sebastian will take your breath away! 

Turning thirty-five doesn’t mean much to most men. For Sebastian Wakefield, it’s the end of life as he knows it. 
When your father is the King of England, thirty-five is the year that a marriage will be arranged, a suitable bride cementing a future you didn’t choose. The obvious solution for escaping the archaic laws of the throne is for Sebastian to leave the country. And where better to go than America? 

Nina Wolfe has spent her career avoiding scandal. As a Hollywood publicist and minor celebrity in her own right, she knows exactly what it takes to keep the media at bay—and what will send them into a frenzy. 

Prince Sebastian hiding out in Cunningham Falls, Montana is an unlikely story. Ending up in his bed, even more so. And keeping their arrangement out of the press might just be impossible. The ring on her finger is about to spark a firestorm that will change her life, and no professional spin will help Nina fit into the world of royalty. 

Only love could write an enchanting new beginning—if they’ll let themselves fall.

Tracey’s Review

One of the things that I love best about Kristin Proby’s books is the sense of community, of family, friends, and the familiarity and love that they create. Always a huge fan of her With Me In Seattle series, I quickly fell in love with Cunningham Falls, Montana, and the people that live there. Now, with ENCHANTING SEBASTIAN, and the addition of the Big Sky Royals, there’s even more to love.

I liked Nina immediately. She’s a go-getter, and, while she hasn’t been used to being part of a tight-knit group of friends, she’s finding her way in Cunningham Falls. When Sebastian Wakefield shows up with one heck of a prospect in mind, I’m not sure that there are many women who would agree to jump right in the way that Nina does.

Neither Nina nor Sebastian are looking for love when they make their match, but, oh, Fate…in typical Kristen fashion, it’s not long before the ‘L’ word is being bandied about, and hearts are falling, falling, falling. I fell in love with these characters and their story myself, because, who doesn’t love a royal love story?!

This is one of those books that just makes your heart happy, and I enjoyed it through and through. And, thanks to Kristen for laying the groundwork for another royal romance, this time between one fair princess and one heck of an alpha protector. ENCHANTING SEBASTIAN took me to my happy place and beyond, making it an easy 4.5 stars worth of a happily ever after, and a definite must-read.

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. 



New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 4.5 Star Review: How To Love A Duke In Ten Days by Kerrigan Byrne


We are excited to participate in the blog tour for HOW TO LOVE A DUKE IN TEN DAYS, the first book in a new series by author Kerrigan Byrne. Fans of historical romance will fall in love with this book, so make sure to check it out and grab your copy today!


These men are dark, bold, and brave. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past—one that she pays a blackmailer to keep buried. Now, with her family nearing bankruptcy, Alexandra strikes upon a solution: Get married to one of the empire’s most wealthy eligible bachelors. Even if he does have the reputation of a devil.

Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride. Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff. Then, Alexandra enters his life like a bolt of lightning. When she proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps. But her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens every fierce desire within him. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe in his arms.

Maynemouth, Devonshire, 1890
Ten years later

Accept the invitation to Castle Redmayne.
I’m in danger. I need you.—Frank

Alexandra Lane had spent the entire train ride from Lon-
don to Devonshire meticulously pondering those fourteen
words for two separate reasons.

The first, she had been unable to stop fretting for Fran-
cesca, who tended to give more than the appropriate
amount of context. The terse, vague note Alexandra now
held was more of a warning than the message contained
therein.The second, she could no longer afford a first-class, pri-
vate railcar, and had, for the last several tense hours, been
forced to share her vestibule face-to-face with a rough-
featured, stocky man with shoulders made for labor.

He’d attempted polite conversation at first, which she’d
rebuffed with equal civility by feigning interest in her cor-
respondence. By now, however, they were both painfully
aware she needn’t take four stops to read two letters.
It was terribly rude, she knew. Her carpetbag remained
clutched in her fist the entire time, except when her hand
would wander into its depths to palm the tiny pistol she
always carried. The sounds of the other passengers in ad-
joining vestibules didn’t make her feel safer, per se.
But she knew they would hear her scream, and that pro-
vided some relief.

For a woman who’d spent a great deal of the last ten
years in the company of men, she’d thought these painful
moments would have relented by now.

Alas, she’d become a mistress of manipulating a situa-
tion so, even if she had to endure the company of men
without a female companion, there would be more than
one man. In the circles she tended to frequent, people be-
haved when in company.

It had worked thus far.

Alexandra braced herself against the slowing of the
train, breathing a silent prayer of relief that they’d finally
arrived. She’d been terrified that if she’d glanced up once,
she’d be forced into conversation with her unwanted com-

Rain wept against the coach window, and the shadows
of the tears painted macabre little serpents on the conflict-
ing documents in her hands. One, a wedding invitation.
The other, Francesca’s alarming note.

A month past, she’d have wagered her entire inheritance
against Francesca Cavendish’s being the first of the Red
Rogues to capitulate to the bonds of matrimony.
A month past, she’d assumed she’d had an inheritance
to wager.

Their little society had seemed destined to live up to the
promise they’d once made as young, disenchanted girls to
never marry.

Until the invitation to an engagement masquerade—
given by the Duke of Redmayne—had arrived the same
day of her friend’s cryptic and startling note.

The invitation had been equally as ambiguous, stating
that the future duchess of Redmayne would be unveiled,
as it were, at the ball. Included in Alexandra’s particular
envelope was a request for her to attend as a bridesmaid.

The subsequent plea for help from Francesca—Frank—
had arrived in a tiny envelope with the Red Rogue seal
they’d commissioned some years prior.

Alexandra hadn’t even known Francesca had returned
from her romps about the Continent. Last she’d heard, the
countess had been in Morocco, doing reconnaissance of
some sort. Nothing in her letters had mentioned a suitor.
Not a serious one, in any case. Certainly not a duke.

Francesca had a talent for mischief and a tendency to
interpret danger as mere adventure.

So, what could possibly frighten her fearless friend?
Marriage, obviously, Alexandra thought with a smirk.
A risky venture, to be sure.

Tracey’s Review

I must admit, it’s been a minute since I’ve picked up anything even remotely resembling a historical romance. Visions of swashbuckling heroes, pert young ladies, and stories set in times of yore come to mind. And, yes, there is definitely some of that in this book. But there is also much more. Kerrigan Byrne manages to entertain and titillate, writing within the framework of the genre standard while still managing to create a story, place, and characters that are a breath of fresh air.

I knew that I was going to love the Red Rogues from the moment that I met them. Think Nancy Drew and her gang, but with touches of the lot from Dead Poets’ Society. Alexandra, Cecelia, and Francesca are no wilting lilies, but a series of unfortunate events casts a shadow over their young lives that they never quite outrun. In the meantime, though, our intrepid trio know their own minds and are not afraid to forge ahead, living life on their terms.

And, I have to tell you that, as historical romance heroes go, Piers Redmayne, is the deal. He is a man of passion, and his chief one becomes a certain Lady Alexandra Lane. By turn infuriated, intrigued, bewitched, and beleaguered, this Duke never even saw his lady coming. He is the sort of romantic hero that I can totally get behind, and seeing his sense of duty, self, and love get turned on its ear is everything.

This was my first read by Ms. Byrne, but will absolutely not be my last. HOW TO LOVE A DUKE IN TEN DAYS is a must-read for fans of historical romance with a twist. What twist? A woman who knows what she wants, and a man that will help her get it. Make sure this one’s on the ol’ TBR, and enjoy.

I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other…

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I TRUST her completely.

After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.

In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.

Or can we?

Re: Confessions of a Bad Girl

I am the worst twin sister in the world.
The absolute worst.
How could I do this?

And by this, I mean engage in earth-shattering, toe-curling, bend-me-over-the-bed-and-take-me-hard sex with my brother’s best friend. By the way, did I mention the sex was incredible?

Oh, wait. I did.

But I’m not surprised, because I’ve always liked his company. He’s funny and clever, and he has this irreverent side that’s fascinating and wildly entertaining.

But we were only supposed to go snowboarding.


It all seemed innocuous, right? A day on the slopes in January.

At the end of the final run, the sun had already set, and we headed into the ski lodge and made plans to meet for dinner.

I didn’t even drink at dinner. Neither did he. We just talked the whole time, and there was candlelight. Stupid candlelight. And he was flirting, and he always flirts, but this time . . . this time we weren’t in New York. We were far enough away I could forget everything that went wrong years ago.

Drew Carson turned my world upside down when she walked into my club looking for a job. Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Tracey’s Review

Okay, y’all. Just yes. Meghan March and her not quite legit or above board alpha men are going to do me in every single time. You may have met Cannon Freeman in Meghan’s earlier books, but you haven’t seen him like this. And, true to form, we’ve got a heroine who can more than hold her own in her dealings with the boss man, and mesmerize him while doing so. Drew Carson is a woman on a mission, and she’s not stopping until she’s got all the answers. If only keeping away from Cannon was as easy… BLACK SHEEP has all the markings of Meghan’s best books, with characters that you’ll fall in love with right away, a tautly written plot that doesn’t let up, and, oh, yeah, plenty of those scenes. You know, the ones that make you wish you had a tall cool drink and a fan. But there’s more here than just insta-lust, and this is one book that you will not be able to put down. And, yes, yes she did. As cliffie writer extraordinaire, Meghan brings this book to a close with a bang, one that’ll have you sitting on the edge of your seat and giving your retail site of choice the side eye, as you tap your fingers and wait for White Knight (Book 2) to be released. But, never fear, it won’t be long until you can get your hands on the sure-to-be-awesome wrap-up in this dirty duet. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and give the audiobook a listen, because Andi Arndt and Sebastian York have worked their usual magic, bringing these characters and their stories to vivid life. Because once around with Meghan’s books is never enough, so get yourself set up and enjoy.
