Giveaways. Cake. Laughter. Buy books. Read books.
Fame and money rained down on Dess Hampton like a monsoon. She couldn’t imagine needing more—until her golden voice was silenced. Now her quiet days are filled with her guitar and she savors every sunrise. Curious, and as a favor to a friend, she emerges to hear a rumored superstar in the making.
Music pours out of Erika Alvarez through her voice and her fingertips. She’s awed that the reclusive Dess Hampton wants to hear her sing, and then blown away when Dess agrees to sit in for a few gigs.
Dess can tell that Erika is destined for the life that she once had and wants no part of, ever again. But can the magic of the music they make together, and the growing love between them, trump Erika’s ambition and Dess’s fears? How much are they willing to sacrifice for it—and for each other?
About the Author:
Tracey first began dabbling in lesbian fiction while recovering from a tonsillectomy in the mid-1990s, then got more serious about it in 2007, when she began writing her bestselling novel “The Candidate” for Bella Books. Coinciding with Hillary Clinton’s (first) presidential campaign, “The Candidate” seemed to strike the right note with readers, having sold well over 10,000 copies and counting. “The Campaign”, released in 2012, is the successful sequel to “The Candidate”.
Tracey has written several other lesbian romance novels as well, including the war-themed, Lambda Literary finalists “No Rules of Engagement” and “Last Salute”. “No Rules” broke new ground in contemporary lesbian fiction, being the first popular lesbian romance novel set in modern day warfare.
Tracey worked in the daily newspaper business as a journalist for more than 25 years and is now happily semi-retired. She enjoys playing hockey, golf, learning the guitar, and spends her time with her partner Sandra and their two Labrador retrievers on the shores of Georgian Bay in central Ontario.
