New Release + Blog Tour + 4.5 Star Review: White Knight by Meghan March

 

About White Knight:

New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of untold truths and one man’s redemption in the Dirty Mafia Duet.

 

I never expected to be anyone’s white knight. That’s not a role I’ve ever played.

But when the Casso crime family shifts into uncharted territory, they’re looking for a new hero, and they’re looking for me—Cannon Freeman, the black sheep.

But my time in disgrace is at an end.

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

Even if my family has never given a damn about me, I will not let them fall.

More than anything, I will not let her fall.

One thing I know is true—in my life, nothing is ever what it seems.

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. ❤️

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.

Synopsis:
As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.

Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.

As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.

Michel’s Review

One of the things I love best about author Sawyer Bennett is her diversity. Every one of her series is completely different and has an authentic feel in every book while still having the Sawyer Bennett brand. Her latest new series is in the romantic suspense genre and is loaded with action packed suspense and slow burning passion. Code Name: Sentinel is the second book in The Jameson Force Security series.

Cruce was a former member of the Secret Service when he retired and moved to Jameson Force Security. The President of the United States calls him for a favor. A favor that he can only entrust to Cruce and the Jameson Force Security.  His niece, Barrett Alexander, is a scientist working on an energy project that will change the world. This top secret project has placed her in danger and the source of danger is unknown. He wants Cruce to protect Barrett personally and the Jameson Force to find out who is being the threats.

The closer Barrett gets to the finish line the higher the danger escalates. Crude is forced to take drastic measures to protect her life. He needs to get her out of DC and away from Jameson headquarters. The perfect solution is hiding out on a private island posing as rich newlyweds. Being on a secluded island together is a chance for both of them to see work isn’t the most important thing in their life and down time is necessary. Taking these drastic measures and precious moments will lead falling in love while still changing the world. But first they need to eliminate the danger.

Sawyer Bennett created an action packed romantic suspense that kept me fully engaged until the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet moments as much as the moments charged with danger. The characters came to life and jumped off the pages. I can’t wait to see what comes next for The Jameson Force Security.

EXCERPT:

Maynemouth, Devonshire, 1890
Ten years later

Alexander,
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.
Alone.

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-
panion.

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.

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.

New Release + Release Blitz + 4.5 Star Review: Already Gone by Kristen Proby and K.L. Grayson

AG - RB banner.jpg

Already Gone, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby and USA Today bestselling author K.L. Grayson is LIVE!

ecover AG.jpg

Falling in love is easy…

New Hope, South Carolina is my home. It’s where I grew up, got into trouble, and fell in love for the first time. Scarlett Kincaid was more than the girl next door, she was my best friend, until she decided that small town life wasn’t for her. One minute she was here, and the next she was gone.

The girl I used to fish with down at the creek is now the biggest name in country music. She headlines world tours, has won four Grammys, and I haven’t seen her since. Until today when she sped through town in her fancy car. One look at her big brown eyes was all it took to stir up a whole slew of emotions. Emotions I’d long ago buried and sure as hell don’t have time for.

It’s the aftermath that’s hard…

There are two things in my life that matter. My music, and my dad. Twelve years ago, I packed a bag and chased my dream. Leaving New Hope and escaping the gossip mill was the easiest decision I ever made. I never planned to return, but my father needs me, and he always comes first. So, I did what I had to do. I cut my tour short and came home, despite having a sister who hates me, and a community that doesn’t trust me.

And then there’s Tucker Andrews.

When he propped an arm on the roof of my car, pulled down his sunglasses and flashed his police badge, I nearly swallowed my tongue. Gone is the lanky boy who used to throw rocks at me and pull my pigtails. Tucker is now a six-foot package of brawny, sexy man wrapped in more muscle than I have hit singles. Did I mention he’s a cop and a single dad?

My goal was to help Dad, and get back to my life. But what am I supposed to do when the life that used to strangle me suddenly fits like a glove, and makes me dream of things I never thought I’d have? What happens when the boy I walked away from years ago becomes one of the most important people in my life? I don’t have room for a man much less love.

Right?

Because it’s impossible to hold onto someone who’s already gone.

Tracey’s Review

So, let’s see…small town romance, local girl hits the big time, friends to frenemies to lovers…what in the world would there be not to love? ALREADY GONE, a collaboration between heavy hitters Kristen Proby and K.L. Grayson, is the perfect mix of sweet, steamy, and a wee bit angsty, hitting all the marks and making for a satisfying romance read.

Although I hadn’t previously read any of K.L. Grayson’s books, Kristen Proby is a longtime favorite of mine, so there wasn’t really a chance that I would not thoroughly enjoy this book. The two have crafted a story with plenty of Southern charm that only adds to the enjoyability of ALREADY GONE, and the finally realized love, friendship, and passion between Scarlett and Tucker is swoonworthy, to say the least.

There is just something about the familiarity of friends sliding into that deeper relationship, of the community and heart of a small town, and of two people that are learning to be open and honest enough to share what they’re feeling as they make their way into uncharted territory. The ladies have worked their magic in spades here, writing Scarlett and Tucker, along with their charming cast of secondary characters, in a way that it is impossible not to love, and making ALREADY GONE a delight from start to finish.

She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

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

About K.L. Grayson

K.L. Grayson resides in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO. She is entertained

daily by her extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she

writes in a man. Her entire life rests in the palms of six dirty little hands, and when the

day is over and those pint-sized cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away furiously on her computer. She has a love for alpha-males,

brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy endings…and not particularly in that

order.
