Blissfully Sweet Event with Tracy March


Award-winning author Tracy March writes romantic thrillers, and lighthearted romances inspired by her real-life happily ever after.

Always up for travel and adventure, Tracy has flown in a stunt plane, snowmobiled on the Continental Divide, ziplined in the Swiss Alps, and been chased by a bull in the mountains of St. Lucia. She loves Nationals baseball, hiking in the Rockies, Saturday date nights, and Dairy Queen Blizzards—and rarely goes a day without craving pizza.

Tracy lives in Yorktown, Virginia, with her superhero husband who works for NASA.


Pumpkin Spice What?!

I’m cool getting autumn off to a tasty start with a pumpkin spice latte, but I’m wondering if the pumpkin spice craze might’ve gone a little, well, crazy. Here’s a short list of some items I’ve come across that made me go hmm…
  • Pumpkin Spice Hummus
  • Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn (Candy Corn is perfect just the way it is!)
  • Pumpkin Spice Seltzer Water
  • Pumpkin Spice Dental Chews for Dogs (Dogs!)
  • Pumpkin Spice Toothpaste (Just ick!)
  • Pumpkin Spice Body Powder
  • Pumpkin Spice Chicken Sausage (Really?)

If you’re up to your teeth in Pumpkin Spice, how about giving another awesome autumn flavor a go? Sweet potato! These Sweet Potato-Pecan Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting deliver melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. (And it’s impossible to eat just one!) Oh, that reminds me. There are also pumpkin spice potato chips—for real!

You’re going to love those cupcakes, I promise. And while you’re waiting for them to come out of the oven, why not start reading TEMPTED IN THE TROPICS, my sweet and sassy, make you happy, enemies to lovers story? Find out how a feisty bakery owner and the new dishy doctor in town become enemies during their first conversation.

“Contemporary, heartfelt and chock full of lively characters who make it magically delicious. An unforgettable, quirky romance.” —an RT Book Reviews TOP PICK!

Whether you stick with pumpkin spice, mix it up with sweet potatoes, or indulge in both, I hope your autumn is super-tasty. And if you’ve got some scratch-your-head pumpkin spice items to add to my list, I’d love to hear about them!


The only thing they agree on is the sultry heat between them.

Paige Ellerbee's life is far from perfect after moving back to small-town Maple Creek--there's her struggling bakery, Sweet Bee's; her aging father; and the fact she's practically the only single girl in town. But when Lane Anderson, the town's hot--and young!--new doctor, moves in next door, she wouldn't mind receiving some intensive care...until their first conversation starts a feud.

Lane came to Maple Creek to lay low after inadvertently being associated with a pill-prescribing scandal. When the gorgeous blonde next door asks for his help with a program that could raise eyebrows, he has to refuse. He's been burned in the past when blinded by love, yet Paige's feisty personality has his blood running hot.

When a little matchmaking lands Lane at Paige's best friend's wedding in St. Lucia, suddenly the romantic island vibe tempts them to kiss and make up. A temporary truce might be just what they both want--but forever love might be more than they can agree on.
