About the Book:

She’s loved him forever…

The last thing traveling nurse Evie Steele expects to find aboard the RV housing her mobile health clinic is her brother’s best friend. As always, Deke’s close proximity stirs her forbidden desires and long-suppressed dreams. But his sudden reappearance in her life and curious interest in her patients makes Evie wonder what he’s hiding.

…but now his secrets could destroy them both.

Special agent Deke Conrad is in big trouble. Not only does he have a thing for his friend’s little sister, but what should be a routine mission is turning into a tour of temptation and survival. He fooled himself into thinking he could keep the beautiful and dynamic Evie in the dark while he used the cover of her Med Mobile to track down a merciless wildlife trafficker. But he didn’t anticipate the lure of her scent or the warmth of her smile…or the string of dead bodies littering their path.

When Evie winds up in his enemy’s crosshairs, Deke must unleash every weapon in his arsenal to save her, including his heart. But will he be too late?

 My thoughts:

 

ROAMING WILD by Tracey Devlyn is an amazing Romantic Suspense. “Steele Ridge” Book 6 , but can be read as a stand alone. If you enjoy family saga, then I’d suggest reading the other 5 books in the series. However, not necessary to enjoy this story.

The hero was a ruggedly sexy, strong and a protective, alpha male. The heroine was feisty, brave and brazen, a true heroine. I loved Evie and Deke, their story was intriguing in itself, but when added in the suspense, and mystery, WOW!

The conflict was enough to keep me turning pages. I was emotionally invested from the first page to the last. The plot flowed seamlessly and continuingly. Fast paced and action packed with conflict, danger around every corner and the wildlife aspect was a plus for me. I enjoyed the fact Evie had issues, with panic attacks, as one who suffers from them occasionally, the author nailed it!

An intriguing story with all the drama, emotions, conflict, suspense, mystery and romance a great Romantic Suspense should have to impress readers and keep them returning to Steele Ridge. Simply flawless, in my humble opinion!

A must read for Romantic Suspense lovers, and fans of the “Steele Ridge” saga. Tracey Devlin is one of my favorite Romantic Suspense authors. She writes such thrilling, page turning stories, with emotional turmoil, as well as family oriented stories. The twists and turns were surprising, intriguing, and impressive. Another hit for Tracey Devlin!! Can’t wait to visit “Steele Ridge” again, and learn what is in store for readers and the Steele family. I adore the Steele family!

SAMANTHA HOLT~~WHEN A ROGUE LOVES A WOMAN ~~#Giveaway & #Review

When a Rogue Loves a Woman
Rogues of Redmere book 2

Notorious rogue, Lord Nathaniel Kingsley always tended to leap without thinking. Becoming a smuggler, adopting a sheep, getting engaged to Miss Patience Grey….
Patience has no need for a fiancé, or a husband. For once in her life, she wants to prove she’s just as good as a man and she does not need Nathaniel Kingsley getting in her way. With her brother injured, it is up to her to continue her family’s work…and that means tracking down a French spy and ensuring said spy will turn.
Unfortunately, no one believes she can do it alone. Which is where Nathaniel comes in.
Nate is happy to be of service. Why pass up the opportunity to repay an old friend, especially with a little intrigue along the way? Find the spy, play escort to Patience, return home to continue smuggling. Easy.
Or at least it would be if the stubborn Patience would let him do his job. The breeches-wearing woman is determined to do it all alone and, he has to admit, there’s something quite distracting about a woman in men’s clothes.
Can he keep his attention from her long enough to complete their mission and persuade Patience to let him do his job and protect her? A job he’s beginning to find he’s enjoying a lot more than he thought he would…

Excerpt

“There would have been many a heartbroken lass had you really been engaged,” Drake said. His grin grew wicked. “I was looking forward to offering my comfort and condolences.”
Nate shook his head and ignored his friend’s jest. Instead he turned his attention to the ale in his hand. It would be his last for a while. He’d need a clear head for what was to come, especially if he was to keep that minx under control. If her own mother could not make her wear a dress, what chance did he have?
Either way, he was looking forward to the challenge. Smuggling was all well and good but they had only gone out once in the past month and all had been quiet. No excitement to be had. He was rather looking forward to the chance to indulge in some espionage and adventure.
Of course, Jacob Grey was aware of their illicit activities. Being a government agent had meant they had helped him before. He was one of the few residents of Penshallow who quite understood who was behind all the smuggling that took place in their small fishing village. Most thought Knight the face of it—the big, brooding, scarred hulk of a man opposite who spoke only when absolutely necessary.
At present, Knight’s attention was on something near the bar. Nate flicked a glance over but could see nothing of interest. Only the usual overly drunk patrons gathered while Louisa, the innkeeper, worked her hardest to keep up with demand.
Other patrons littered the room, gathered around small tables. Some had cards in their hands while all had drinks. The Ship Inn was not the most savory of places but it was out of the way and the food was good. Not to mention Louisa was uncannily good at ensuring the customs men never came near the place. She had saved their skin many times and they repaid her help generously, ensuring she had a good supply of excellent French wine.
“You were a damned fool, signing up for this,” Nate’s brother said, thrusting a finger at him.
“What was I to do? You were off enjoying yourself with Hannah. Far too much it seems.” His brother’s gaze darkened and Nate immediately ceased any idea of talking of Red’s fiancée. Hannah was currently installed in lodgings in the village while they awaited the license for their marriage and to finalize all the details. His brother was, unbelievably, utterly in the love with the woman. It was not such much the woman he had fallen for that surprised Nate but that his brother had the ability to fall so heavily for her. Red had always been too busy to think of love or even marriage.
Drake leaned in. The captain fixed Red with a slight smile on his lips. “Face it, Red. While you were distracted by petticoats, Nate held down the fort. I don’t blame him for offering to help, after all, are we not in this to help the crown?”
“Since when are you so noble?” Red demanded.
“Since I have a pocket full of coin,” Drake said smugly. “Things have been going uncommonly well of late. I don’t see why Nate cannot help Jacob Grey and be back in time for our next outing.”
“Uncommonly well?” Nate’s brother lifted a brow. “After Knight’s illness and the storm that near tore your ship in half, you were complaining of curses. Now you think things are going uncommonly well?”
Knight glowered. The giant of a man sat with his arms folded, a great scowl etched upon his face that in some lights looked as though it could be made of granite. Were it not for being friends with him, Nate would give him a wide berth. The man looked like trouble and, potentially, he was. No one really knew anything about him apart from the fact he was useful muscle and a damned hard worker. Though Nate suspected there was something more under that silent exterior. What that was, however, he was not sure.
“It was not an illness,” Knight protested.
Drake laughed. “You vomited on my boots, Knight. What would you call it?”
Knight fell back into silent mode and glowered some more.

MY THOUGHTS 

When a Rogue Loves a Woman by Samantha Holt is an amazing Regency Romance.  While, Book 2 of “Rogues of Redmere , it can be read as a stand alone. 

Not only will readers find everything a Romance reader desires, it has desire, spies, friendships,  smuggling, a French Spy, and an adopted sheep, who yes, acts like a treasured pet, which it certainly is treated as such.

Lord Nathaniel Kingsley, a notorious rogue and a sometime spy, when needed, by his friend. As a second son he must find his own way. Miss Patience Grey, is a fiesty, bluestocking, sister to Nate’s friend and spy master. Wishs to make this trip into France alone to encounter the French spy and get the information she has for the British, she also wishes to prove a point to her overbearing brothers and her mother…She can perform her duty alone.  But her brother insist Nate’s accompany her on this mission,  as her husband. But no believed the plan would work. Can the lovely Patience,  win her true love and her match? Will Nate finally meet his match, with Patience? Can they find what both are seaching for, a HEA?

Fast paced, well written, with engaging characters,  a few laughs along the way and a great storyline.  And absolutely masterfully and intriguing story. “When a Rogue Loves a Woman”, will have you glued to the pages as you find these characters are simply irresistable. I enjoyed the interaction between Nate and Patience, they had that pull of attraction from the beginning.

Once again, Ms. Holt has written a heartwarming, as well as, a stimulating tale of challenges,  intrigue,  romance and love. Ms. Holt has never disappointed me with her stories.  I can’t wait to read more of this exciting series,  “Rogues of Redmere”, the ladys who tame them and the adventures in their futures.

Highly recommended for fans of  Regency Romance,  spies, friendships,  mesmerizing stories, a adopted, cute, sheep,  and a written tale, are sure to adore this story.  Well done, SamanthaHolt! ! A definite must read Regency Romance!

The Kill List: Jamie Sinclair # 1
Released: December 2, 2014

In this taut debut thriller, Nichole Christoff introduces a savvy private investigator with nerves of steel—and a shattered heart.

As a top private eye turned security specialist, Jamie Sinclair has worked hard to put her broken marriage behind her. But when her lying, cheating ex-husband, army colonel Tim Thorp, calls with the news that his three-year-old daughter has been kidnapped, he begs Jamie to come find her. For the sake of the child, Jamie knows she can’t refuse. Now, despite the past, she’ll do everything in her power to bring little Brooke Thorp home alive.

Soon Jamie is back at Fort Leeds—the army base in New Jersey’s Pine Barrens where she grew up, the only child of a two-star general—chasing down leads and forging an uneasy alliance with the stern military police commander and the exacting FBI agent working Brooke’s case. But because Jamie’s father is now a U.S. senator, her recent run-in with a disturbed stalker is all over the news, and when she starts receiving gruesome threats echoing the stalker’s last words, she can’t shake the feeling that her investigation may be about more than a missing girl—and that someone very powerful is hiding something very significant . . . and very sinister.

The Kill Shot: Jamie Sinclair # 2
Released: March 17th, 2015

In an explosive thriller for readers of Lee Child, Alex Berenson, and Brad Taylor, P.I. and security specialist Jamie Sinclair finds herself caught in a dangerous game of international cat-and-mouse.

Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.

Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now.

INTERVIEW AND RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY WITH LUBA LESYCHYN …

MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PROUDLY PRESENTS….

LUBA LESYCHYN!

There is presently no cover image for this title.

Good morning, Luba and welcome to My Book Addiction and More!

MBA&M: Please give our readers a little insight into Luba Lesychyn?

 

Luba: Luba Lesychyn, pronounced le-si-shin by the way, is undeniably but shamefully a chocolate addict. I have tried everything from acupuncture to hypnotherapy and meditation to rid myself of the addiction, but it’s still with me. Fortunately, I’m not just ‘my addiction’. I am an intense culture hound and travel whenever I am able. I’m also very physically active–I teach yoga and run, take dance classes and martial arts oriented cardio classes and I do the gym rat thing too, i.e. weights and machines. And somewhere amidst all this I write. I’m tired just thinking about it.

MBA&M: What was the inspiration behind “Theft By Chocolate”?There is presently no cover image for this title.

 

Luba: Years ago, a friend gave me a copy of Sophie Kinsella’s Confessions of a Shopaholic. Being a shopaholic myself, I laughed my way through the book. Then I thought to myself, “I’m probably not the only chocoholic on the planet. Maybe I could spin a funny yarn about all the ridiculous things I’ve done to get my hands on chocolate and, at the same time, share the amazing world in which I had worked for so long, namely a museum. It was a long haul from there including seriously honing my writing skills for many years, but I am so proud of the final product, and I am certain it will make readers laugh.

MBA&M: Give our readers a little background on “Theft By Chocolate”?

 

Luba: As mentioned, I knew I wanted to write about chocolate and museums. But I am also a huge film fan and I have always loved movies about museum heists, particularly movies like Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. Although I enjoy the newer films that are highly focused on foiling space age technology, the basic cat and mouse plot has an enduring attraction for me. So, I was hoping to replicate that kind of feeling in my book, but with a little bit more humor, kind of a screwball heist story.

 

MBA&M: We understand the main characters are always discussed, but today we would like to talk a little about secondary characters. Please name a secondary character from “Theft By Chocolate”and tell our readers about them?

 

Luba: I’m so glad you asked that question because I am in love with my secondary characters. Not “in love” in love. But they can be so much fun to work with because you can often get away with a little more eccentricity in the secondary characters. If I had to choose one to highlight, it would be Aurelia Alberti. Aurelia works in the museum’s IT Department at the Help Desk where she’s supposed to trouble shoot computer problems for the staff. But on the side, she’s a singer for a Death Metal Band and she has a very black heart. She wreaks great havoc on the life of Kalena Boyko, the main character.

 

MBA&M: Is there any interesting facts you found while researching “Theft By Chocolate” you would like to share with our readers?

 

Luba: Besides the fact that chocolate contains four very highly addictive substances (that’s my story and I’m sticking with it), I happened upon some very interesting facts about a heist that had taken place in the museum where I had been working. The theft had taken place before I started working there, but everyone knew about it. But then, by chance, I met someone who had some insider information about the heist that sent me running back to my novel to do a rewrite.

It turned out that the thief had used an ingenious technique that stunned the security industry around the world. The culprit managed to circumvent what was considered state-of-the art technology in its day, a technology that was being used universally, not just in museums and art galleries, but in banks and businesses. International law keepers realized it wouldn’t be long before thieves around the world heard about the daring robbery and how it was executed. Basically, the planet’s riches, both great and small were suddenly at risk.

But the thief was never identified or caught and that made it all the more intriguing to me. I found a way to construct a fictitious plot around some very real facts and ended up with what you read in Theft By Chocolate.

MBA&M: If “Theft By Chocolate” was to become a movie, which actor/actress do you envision you would cast as your character(s)?

 

Luba: I love your questions. I feel like you know me. Because I have been such a huge film fan from about the age of four, when I write, the story plays very much like a movie in my head. As a matter of fact, my first major piece of writing was a screen play. But back to Theft By Chocolate, I had very early in the process cast Gwyneth Paltrow as Kalena and the dapper Hugh Grant as the devilishly irresistible Geoffrey Ogden.

 

MBA&M: What are some of the things that influence you while writing? Such as music, noises, pictures, etc. if any?

 

Luba: Music definitely influences me. It was while listening to a piece of music at the same time that my phone was accidentally knocked off the hook, and making that annoying sound to alert you to that fact, that I came up with the story for my screen play. As far as these types of influences that impacted Theft By Chocolate, it has to be aromas, textures and tastes of various chocolates I have experienced over the years.

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where they can find “Theft By Chocolate”?

 

Luba: I can be found at www.chocolativore.com as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest (where visitors can check out a visual storyboard of Theft By Chocolate).  I can be contacted through my “Contact” page at the above web site.

Theft By Chocolate is available at over 100 eRetailers. Readers can go to the following link on my publishers web site (Attica Books) for direct links to various retailers.

http://www.atticabooks.com/attica/?page_id=17&ProductID=A0020

Luba, do you have anything else you would like to say today?

 

Luba: Print copies of the book will be available in July. I will post details on www.chocolativore.com and on my author’s Facebook page when I have the details.

Although chocolate lovers will definitely get a kick out of the book, anyone who might enjoy a sassy museum mystery about a woman of a certain age looking for chocolate, love and an international art thief in all the wrong places will have a fun ride. I’ve been getting some great reviews from both my male and female readers.

It’s been a delight to share a little about myself and my work with you. Thanks!
