Feature and Giveaway: Sea Swept Seduction Series by Tracy Sumner

She is his greatest temptation.
He is her forbidden desire.
A battle of wills leads to love.

Spirited Savannah Conner is passionately committed to stamping out social injustice. Yet when she arrives in the seaside town of Pilot Isle, North Carolina, ready to take up a new cause, she quickly finds herself on the outs with the town constable. Zachariah Garrett is the most arrogant, infuriating, maddeningly attractive man it’s ever been her misfortune to meet. And suddenly, Savannah is fighting a whole new battle – this one against her own yearning for a man who is impossible to resist.

Ever since his wife’s death two years ago, Zachariah Garrett has dedicated his life to keeping the peace. So when he sees the pretty newcomer atop a wobbly wooden crate stirring up the crowd, he doesn’t hesitate to haul her off to jail. But Savannah Connor isn’t any ordinary law-breaker. She’s a beguiling beauty with the power to awaken emotions he thought he’s never feel again, and the tenderness to help him forget his fears…and risk his heart once more.

Places to Purchase:

He left all he loved behind...

Will he be able to return and win her heart?

Elle Beaumont has learned life's lessons the hard way--by foolishly exposing her youthful heart to love, only to have it broken when her true love fled Pilot Island, North Carolina. Now Noah Garrett is back, rekindling dreams she'd given up for lost, and turning her world upside down. Elle's girlish yearning for him has become something more powerful than she'd ever imagined.

A man dedicated to science and rational judgment, Noah rejects all notions of romance...until the girl who used to cling to him like a shadow begins haunting his every thought. But even as he struggles to resist Elle's sensuous beauty and the wildfire attraction erupting between them, Noah cannot deny that their passion is as irresistible and endless as the tides of love.

Coming soon: Tides of Desire
Book 3 in Sea Swept Seduction series

Tracy's story telling career began when she picked up a copy of LaVyrle Spencer’s Vows on a college beach trip. A journalism degree and a thousand romance novels later, she decided to try her hand at writing a southern version of the perfect love story. With a great deal of luck and more than a bit of perseverance, she sold her first novel to Kensington Publishing.

When not writing sensual stories featuring complex characters and lush settings, Tracy can be found reading romance, snowboarding, watching college football and figuring out how she can get to 100 countries before she kicks (which is a more difficult endeavor than it used to be with her four-year-old son in tow). After stops in France, Switzerland and Taiwan, she now lives in the south. However, after spending a few years in “the city”, she considers herself a New Yorker at heart.

Tracy has been awarded the National Reader’s Choice, the Write Touch and the Beacon – with finalist nominations in the HOLT Medallion, Heart of Romance, Rising Stars and Reader’s Choice. Her books have been translated into German, Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish. She loves hearing from readers about why she tends to pit her hero and heroine against each other and that great novel she simply must order in five seconds on her Kindle.

  4. This series sounds amazing. I love stories where the characters get a second chance at loves. The Garretts sound yummy. Can't wait to read these books.


  5. Hi, Tracy! I so enjoyed reading about your Tides of Love trilogy. It's great to "return" to a new book and continue reading about a family you have already gotten to know. I'm glad you had the opportunity to visit Europe. I lived in Paris for six years and was able to travel to so many fabulous places. What a wonderful experience as I'm sure you will agree. I'm so looking forward to reading Tides of Love and wish you continued successes. All the best!

  6. You sound as though you really enjoy writing. I know your stories sound like the kind I would enjoy reading. Thank you.

  7. Connie:

    I lived in Paris for one summer as well. On Rue de Seine! I loved it. I hope you love the books. Tides of Love and Noah Garrett--is my favorite hero that I've written. Though seems Tides of Passion is the most popular with readers. :)

  13. Thanks! Well, as far as the travel goes, it isn't easy, that's for sure. But I'm persistent! And I've been around as a romance writer for a while. Was traditionally published with Kensington and Zebra books -- but now, with the new world of publishing, I'm going it on my own. We shall see. :)

  14. This sounds like a great read! I always love to find a new writer and this has caught my eye! Good luck on your journey; you are far braver than I!

  19. Yes and no. Pilot Isle is based on Beaufort, NC. :) The second marine laboratory was built there -- as in the book. I only changed the dates by a couple of years to work it in. All else is based on actual research. :)

  20. Hi Tracy,
    thank you for the chance at such a great giveaway. i love the 2 books i have in this series already. i have tides of Love and Tides of Passion and they are just wonderful. i am so excited about getting the next one that i have already put it at the top of my have to buy next list. LOL!

    i love the covers on all of your books and wondered if you design them yourself or if you have alot of input in how they will look? i know some authors have little to no say in how their book will look.

  26. I have not read anything by Tracy yet but am definitely looking forward to it!

  27. Thank you for the giveaway. As a fellow mommy and Northerner, do you find writing about the southern romance genre offers you a reprive from the hussle bussle of city life? Kudos for you attempting things with a 4 year old!

  28. These look good, especially Tides of Love!

  33. Tracy I so excited to read your stories! They seem absolutely amazing!

  34. I just love when these contests happen. You are a new to me author and I get so excited to add a book to my "must read" list! lavendersbluegreen(at)yahoo(dot)com

  35. Tracy, Both of these books look great. I'm definitely going to have to check them out.

  36. I love that these stores are set in the Ocean towns on the East Coast. And though we are on opposite ends of the US, there is nothing as romantic as walking through the surf, holding the hand of the one you love!


  37. Congratulations on your series, it sounds delightful. I am impressed by your travels, I don't think I will ever visit that many countries, no matter how long I live!
