Author Rec: Tracey Livesay
One of my favorite romance tropes is the surprise baby plot. So it was to my joy to learn that the second book in Tracey Livesay’s Shades of Love series featured that trope! I immediately read it, even though I hadn’t read the first book yet. And I enjoyed Along Came Love and impulsive India so much that I quickly went back and read Love on My Mind. To my joy, the third book in the series, returned to the crazy trope of amnesia in a believable manner. I’ve been lucky enough to meet Tracey at two different book events, Baltimore Book Festival 2016 and an Avon panel discussion/ signing at The Strand Bookstore. She is an eloquent speaker and a very skilled contemporary romance writer. Her Shades of Love series features biracial couples which sometimes seems like an overlooked contribution to diverse romance.

Tracey lives in Virginia with her husband–who she met on the very first day of law school–and their three children.
