Behind the soft smile, perfect manners, and helpful air, Constance Ray is a woman struggling to make it through the day. After her husband is killed in the Korean war, his death leaves her lost, knowing she can never be the woman she was before. Although, when a handsome navy officer shows up with a final word from the grave, Constance can’t ignore the message. She also can’t continue to be indifferent to the man who brought it, or his involvement in the war – the one for everyone’s right to be treated equally.
Nathaniel Kelly never means for it to happen, especially not with Constance. He is supposed to fulfill the final wish of the man he owed his life to, but he can’t help it when he instantly falls for the soften-spoken, bereaved preacher’s daughter. But as much as he wishes to court her, to love her, his loyalty to his friend and his obligation to make up for sins of the father, stand in the way. Remaining true to his friendship, and his mission, is hard when pride for the movement unites Nathaniel with Constance and his passion for her finally sets her free.

From the author of the Kellington and Emerson Regency romances, comes the fourth book in the Jasmine Cottage series set in the early Victorian era.
Lily Winslow has had a difficult time making ends meet since the death of her parents a few years earlier. She has sought work as a companion, but it has been difficult to find a position with a ten-year-old brother in tow. She finally finds a job in a lovely home, but her employer keeps risking his life in pursuit of conspirators who wish to kill the queen.
Oliver Wadsworth has been a spymaster for well over a decade. Known for being calm under pressure, his entire life is upended when Lily Winslow moves into his home to care for his grandmother. As he tries to protect his family in a race to find the conspirators in a deadly assassination ring, he realizes he has a lot to live for.
WHERE SOULS EMBRACE is the story of finding love and blending a family. It’s very little history with a fair amount of graphic language of a sexual nature. It’s also a great deal of fun.

Title: Cherished Wings
Author: Tracey L. Dragon
Genre: Historical Romance
When Sara Kennedy returns to her small hometown in Western New York and visits her dying grandmother, Fran, in the hospital, she asks her about the pair of World War II Navy Wings she found in her dresser drawer.
Her grandmother reluctantly shares with Sara the powerfully love story she had not spoken of in over fifty years. As the tale unfolds, Sara finds herself caught up in a time where things were simpler, yet more complex—where love and war were not compatible.
A story so poignant, it rocks Sara’s world and changes her life forever.
Cherished Wings was inspired by my own mother’s story. Although she never spoke of it, my sisters and I all knew of the World War II wings she kept hidden in her dresser. The wings belonged to a beau who was killed during a mission. Upon my mother’s death, I did not find the wings, but I did, however, find a small envelope containing his photos, one which was cut to fit the size of one of her lockets. She also kept the glass top of an old bottle of French perfume called Bamboo. It was from these items that the idea for Cherished Wings was sparked and the characters Fran and Jack were created. I hope you fall in love with Lt. Jack McOmber as much as I did while creating him. Please visit my website: traceyldragon.com. I would love to hear from you.
