About Thin Love

Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding. 

Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction. 

She sacrificed everything for him. 

It wasn't enough. 

But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been. 

Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled. 

When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.

Excerpt
When I see her get up to dump her trash and return her tray, I follow her. I watch her throw her head back, letting out a frustrated groan, her hands balled into fists at her sides.
“Frustrated about something, Ace?” I say, making her jump.
She turns to me, her face draining of color. She pushes her hands into the back pockets of her shorts. “Jesus, Iceman. You trying to kill me?”
I growl and close the space between us in two long strides. She takes a step back. I prowl forward, and she retreats until her back hits the wall. A slight smirk of satisfaction carves over my lips. I place my hands on either side of her face, against the wall, remembering the way I’d trapped her against the wall of her bedroom.
I don’t let any part of my body touch her, letting the closeness press against us instead.
“W-what are you d-doing?” she stammers, her chest rising and falling like she can’t breathe.
Yeah, try and get away now, sweet, sweet, Ace.
I lean down, letting my chest graze hers, and she shivers.
“Tell me, baby,” I say, making sure to keep my voice low and seductive, staring into my favorite eyes. I could easily get lost in her beautiful gray. “Why are you running away from me?” I bury my nose in the curve of her neck, where I know my hickey is hidden, and inhale deeply.
Her body arches toward me in response. I run my nose along her jaw. God, she’s so beautiful, and her smell . . . I’ve never smelled anything sweeter.
Something vibrates between us, and I push back slightly. Ace’s chest rises up and down as she breathes, taking in deep gulps, her eyes closed.
“Baby,” I say, kind of entranced by the sight of her. “Your phone’s ringing.”
Her eyes fly open and, without looking away from me, she answers her phone. “Hello?” she says, her voice sultry. “Oh, hi!” Her eyes become big and round, like they do every time she’s caught off guard. “One sec.” She covers the phone with her hand and says, “I need to take this.”
I nod. Before I can stop her, she walks briskly away and disappears around the corner. I thrust my fingers into my hair and pull at it. Leaning my back into the wall, I sigh, telling the excited parts of my body to calm the hell down.
“You can’t ignore me forever, Ace,” I say to no one in particular. “Not when I’ve finally got you.”

About Dirty Little Misery

Lust can be downright lethal.
 
Thanks to her freakish, satyr-like power, Jessica Moore was denied her dream to join the Gryphons, the magical law-enforcement officers protecting humanity from the pred races. But after the Gryphons tried to arrest her for murders she didn’t commit, Jess is no longer interested. Too bad—they are.

Now that they know what she can do, they want Jess on their side. If she doesn’t agree to help them solve a new case, they’ll charge her with every magical crime she’s ever committed.
Nine people are dead. The cause? Exhaustion. The activity? Never-ending sex. Someone sold them tainted F, an illegal aphrodisiac made by satyrs. No surprise, Jess’s satyr allies aren’t pleased with her investigation. Worse, it strains her tenuous relationship with Lucen, the one satyr she counts as a friend.

As Jess delves into the shady satyr business world, she unravels a scheme more sinister than dirty drugs—and her relationship with Lucen unravels right along with it. Only the truth will save their friendship. But not before it turns Jess into an ambitious killer’s next target.

Warning: Contains blackmail, betrayal, and sex that’s literally to die for. Plus plenty of bad stiff jokes to go with it. Remember, just say no to magical drugs.

Miss Misery, Book 2

About the Author
Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.

She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.

Tracey is represented by Michelle Humphrey at the Martha Kaplan Agency and finds referring to herself in the third person to be very weird.

Inspiration


Sometimes people ask me why I’ve based my Chilton Crosse series in England.  And my simple answer is, “I just love England.”  But the longer answer is that when I was seventeen years old, I took a three-week tour of the British Isles with my grandmother.  We rode a double-decker bus in London, walked through Shakespeare’s home, threw crusts of bread to the ducks in the Lake District, watched girls dressed in tartan skirts dance to Scottish music in a pub, drove through Ireland’s Ring of Kerry, then kissed the Blarney stone.  We toured cathedrals and walked the magnificent grounds of castles and their breathtaking manicured gardens.
