New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Read: The Brazen by Willa Nash

The Brazen by Willa Nash is now live!

Kerrigan Hale’s personal life is about as exciting as a bucket of tar. With hard work and hustle as her steadfast companions, who needs romance or adventure? Her empire in Calamity, Montana, isn’t going to build itself.
For years, her mentor–and investor–helped make her dreams come true. Until his unexpected death put her fate in his grandson’s hands. A brazen billionaire, he seems intent on ruining Kerrigan’s life.

But if Pierce Sullivan thinks she’ll go down without a fight, he’s sorely mistaken. Pushed to the extreme, she drives to his ritzy mountain lodge to force the arrogant You Can Call Me Mr. Sullivan to hear her out.

No sooner does she arrive than a snowstorm traps her with Pierce. Stranded together for days, she’s in for the battle of her life. Pierce is nearly irresistible by candlelight. Without his suits and fancy cars, he’s almost human.

Except only a fool would let down her guard. And Kerrigan can’t risk her future. Not when she doesn’t know if he’s out to pilfer her dreams . . . or to steal her heart.

Tracey’s Review

It’s not that I haven’t loved every book in the Calamity series by author Willa Nash, aka, Devney Perry, because I have. But there is just something about this latest story, THE BRAZEN, that was extra-special. Maybe it was a strong heroine, who takes absolutely no nonsense from anyone. Or a hero that is a lot of bark, but not so much bite, that has gotten lost along the way and is ripe for redemption. Whatever it is, THE BRAZEN is a book that I loved, that I inhaled, that jumped right to the top of my recent favorites, and is there to stay.

I love all of Willa’s/Devney’s books, because she makes it impossible not to do so. She infuses each story, each series, with abiding passion, friendship, community, and a real sense of home. Picking up any of them is like putting on a favorite sweater, or finding that place that calls to you and lets you know that you’re where you’re supposed to be.

I honestly could not put down THE BRAZEN once I started, and could have happily kept reading about Kerrigan and Pierce as their lives continued to unfold. The two of them just had my heart, and watching them work things out was sweet, sexy, and redemptive, for both of them. Thank goodness for epilogues!

I obviously love this book and the series a lot, and highly recommend them. Small towns, strong personalities, and storylines that keep you guessing make them a joy to read. So, really, grab them and jump in. You’ll be so glad that you did. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Dirt Queen by Nora Blake

Dirt Queen by Nora Blake is now live!

I love you. Always.

Sarah–We hadn’t spoken in years, and more often than not, he was on my mind. When I moved back to town he reached out. I stalked him enough times on Facebook to know he had a wife and two kids. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, but the pull I felt inside couldn’t be ignored. 

Aaron–She was back. I thought I’d never see her again, but there she was. Within my reach. She agreed to meet up at the dirt track when I sent her a message. What would she think of me being a dad? Did she even know?

The unspoken feelings she tried to leave in the past forced her to  keep him at arm’s length.  He was in the middle of a divorce and had two boys they both needed to consider. He was all in but she was questioning everything.

But sometimes…you have to follow your heart and let yourself fall–no matter how things might end. It’d be worth it. Always.

This book is based on a true story.

New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Fallen Jester by Devney Perry

 

Leo Winter loves his life. He works when he needs money. He rides when he craves freedom. He frequents the local bar when he wants a good time. The Tin Gypsies might be a memory, but the bachelor life he lived with his motorcycle club still suits him fine. So when a one-night stand surprises him at a family barbecue and claims she’s pregnant with his child, he’s certain he’s died and gone to hell.

Cassandra Cline took one night off from her structured life. One. And now her wild fling with the local bad boy has turned her life sideways. Her dreams and academic career are circling the drain, and none of it would have happened if she’d stayed far, far away from Leo.

Except avoiding him is impossible, especially when she’s forced to move home to Clifton Forge, Montana. And he refuses to leave her side when a series of strange accidents put her and their baby at risk. But are they accidents? Or is she standing in the middle of a battlefield she doesn’t understand?

Her only allies are people she barely knows. And a man who has the potential to steal her heart.

If only he’d stop playing the fool.

Tracey’s Review

And, finally, Leo Winter’s book is here. I have been waiting to see how Devney Perry would write Leo’s love story, and she knocked it out of the park with FALLEN JESTER, the fifth book in her Tin Gypsy series.

I’d read and loved Devney’s earlier books, but when she said that she was writing an MC series, well, it gave me pause. But I should have known, because this author obviously cannot write a book that I will not fall in love with. With each subsequent book, these characters that I didn’t necessarily think would be “my thing” have most definitely landed squarely among my most favorites. Funnily enough, each book in the Tin Gypsy series becomes my ‘favorite one yet,’ but I have found that, like with one’s children, there is always room for more, and plenty of love to spare.

The books in this series most definitely build on each other, so, while you could read FALLEN JESTER without having read the earlier books, you would miss the backstory and the evolution, which you most definitely do NOT want. The Leo in this book is so different than the way that he comes across in the earlier books, and he just had my heart. So much of his behavior, his attitude, what make him Leo, is brought to light here, and I just wanted to grab him and hug him.

Cass is the perfect match for Leo. She appears to be his opposite, at least as far as their pasts are concerned, but they share a bond that draws them together like the strongest magnet, allowing them to draw the strength from each other needed to be the best, most whole versions of themselves.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that, yes, I’ve truly enjoyed each book in the Tin Gypsy series, and we still have TIN QUEEN, which is Emmett’s story, to finish out the series, but this one, the one where Leo finds his love, does go on record as my most favorite of the bunch. If you have yet to pick up these books, do it now, because they will have your heart. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Off the Record by Kristen Proby

Off the Record: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the thrilling conclusion to her With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

Rafe “Rocco” Martinelli was never one for the family business. Alas, being born into a crime syndicate means doing the family’s bidding and making sure you’re connected–and, yes, breaking a few kneecaps. Rafe would love nothing more than to hang up his enforcer apron and live a quiet life, but as more and more higher-ups in rival clans turn up dead, Rafe realizes he doesn’t have a choice. Especially not when the captivating and gorgeous bratva princess needs his help.

Dr. Annika Tarenkov learned early on that her belongs to her family. She’s a pawn in the long game, a bargaining chip for power and prestige. She gave up the only person in her life she thought she could be happy with, all for the greater good of the family. Now, a newly made widow and desperately seeking answers, she’s forced to confront her past as it converges with her present. But all it does is make her wonder about her future and how she can make Rafe hers again. While being with him is like wrangling a toddler at times, he still makes her heart race and her breath catch. And she wouldn’t feel safer with anyone else.

With the chips seemingly stacked against them, they must work to uncover the perpetrators of the nefarious plot that’s been brewing for some time–before it’s too late.

New Release + Release Blitz: The Belle and the Beard by Kate Canterbary

 

The Belle and the Beard by Kate Canterbary is now live!

Jasper-Anne Cleary’s guide to salvaging your life when you find yourself publicly humiliated, out of work, and unemployable at 35—not to mention newly single:

1. Run away. Seriously, there’s no shame in disappearing. Go to that rustic old cottage your aunt left you. Look out for the colony of bats and the leaky roof. Oh, and the barrel-chested neighbor with shoulders like the broad side of a barn. Definitely look out for him.
2. Stop wallowing and stay busy. It doesn’t matter whether you know how to bake or fix things around the house. Do it anyway. Dust off your southern hospitality and feed that burly, bearded neighbor some pecan pie.
3. Meet new people. Chat up the grumpy man-bear, pretend to be his girlfriend when his mother puts you two on the spot, agree to go as his date to a big family party. Don’t worry—it’s only temporary.
4. Cry it out. Screwing up your life entitles you to wine, broody-moody music, and uninterrupted sobbing. 
5. Get over it all by getting under someone. Count on your fake boyfriend to deliver some very real action between the sheets. 
6. Move on. The disappearing act, the cottage, the faux beau—none of it can last forever. 

Linden Santillian’s guide to surviving the invasion when a hell-in-heels campaign strategist moves in next door:

1. Do not engage. There is no good reason you should chop her wood, haul her boxes, or pick her apples. 
2. Do not accept gifts, especially not the homemade ones. Disconnect the doorbell, toss your phone over a bridge, hide in the basement if you must, but do not eat her pie. 
3. Do not introduce her to your friends and family. They’ll favor her over you and never let you forget it.
4. Do not intervene when she’s crying on the back porch. Ignore every desire to fix the entire world for her. By no means should you take her into your arms and memorize her peach-sweet curves. 
5. Do not take her to bed, even if it’s just to get her out of your system.
6. Do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with her.

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 + 5 Star Review: Hard To Lose by K. Bromberg

Hard to Lose by K. Bromberg is now live!

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, brings you a romance about love, forgiveness, and living every day to the fullest.

I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot–but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head.

But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student.

Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep.

I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden.

And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it.

***

There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment.

Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball.

After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.

The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too.

Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets.

Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.

But sometimes things are too good to be true… and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive.

Tracey’s Review

Well, it’s happened. I have read my most favorite K. Bromberg book of all, and that’s saying something, given my rekindled love for Kristy and her writing. Yep, Gunner and Chase totally owned me, and I have nothing but love for their story, HARD TO LOSE.

I read a lot of books, and there are plenty that I really like, and that stay with me, and among them there are the ones that dazzle me, that just really resonate for one reason or another. When it comes time for my yearly list of ‘Favorite Reads,’ it’s not so hard to pull one together, because they are the books that I am still thinking about long after I’ve read them. When I make the list for this year, there’s no doubt that HARD TO LOSE will be on it, because I am so in love with this book.

Ryan ‘Gunner’ Camden stole my heart in every single way, not the least of which is the way that he loved Chase Kinkade. For someone that has experienced so much pain and loss, his heart, whether he believes it or not, is wide open, and full of so much love and care for others. And for Chase, driven, self-sufficient, successful Chase, Gunner is just the person that she needs, whether she knows it or not. The two of them together smooth out all of the broken, jagged edges, and make the most beautiful whole.

Look, I could obviously go on and on, because this book touched me very much. I have loved the whole Play Hard series, but this book is the one. It’s sexy and sweet and redemptive and healing, and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Do yourself a favor and make this a must-read-soon addition to your TBR. ❤️

Meet Kristy


New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary romance novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow and her mind scattered in too many different directions.

Since publishing her first book on a whim in 2013, Kristy has sold over one and a half million copies of her books across eighteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over thirty times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by the streaming platform, Passionflix, with the first movie (Driven) out now.

With her imagination always in overdrive, she is currently scheming, plotting, and swooning over her latest hero. You can find out more about him or chat with Kristy on any of her social media accounts. The easiest way to stay up to date on new releases and upcoming novels is to sign up for her newsletter (http://bit.ly/254MWtI) or follow her on Bookbub (http://smarturl.it/KBrombergBB)
