DIK Welcomes Tracy Wolff to the Island!

Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to be here today—I have a huge shelf full of DIKs (yes, I have a tendency to go overboard on almost everything) so this blog is near and dear to my heart. Since I’m here for three days this week, I thought I’d start by introducing myself and talking a little bit about the books I write. I’m a relatively new author, meaning my first book hit the shelves eighteen months ago—which is why many of you probably haven’t heard of me yet. Since my first book, a Harlequin Superromance called A Christmas Wedding, I’ve had six more books published, with three more to come this year—which has led for a very busy writing schedule this last two years. Anyway, with no further ado—here’s what you need to know about me and my books.


Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

My Books:

Tease Me: April 2010

The “edgy and erotic” (Shannon McKenna, New York Times bestselling author of Tasting Fear) author of Tie Me Down and Full Exposure offers another steamy novel of sex, lies, and sultry games.

You can look, but you can’t touch…

Burned once too often, true crime writer Lacey Richards has sworn off love. Instead, she explores her deepest desires through her anonymous—and very provocative—blog. Anonymous, that is, until her dark and ultrasexy neighbor discovers her dirty secret.

Stockbrocker-turned-carpenter Byron Hawthorne gave up life in the fast lane, hoping to start over in a new city. When he learns his alluring neighbor is the one writing the sizzling blog that keeps him up all night, he can’t resist offering to fulfill her fantasies in the flesh. But Byron isn’t the only man provoked by Lacey’s writing. Now Lacey doesn’t know who she can trust—and who she can dare to tease.

Dark Embers, Book 1 in Dragon’s Heat Series: July 2010

Written in a compelling voice, DARK EMBERS introduces a sexy and intriguing new world. I’m looking forward to seeing where Tessa Adams takes her dragons next. — NY Times Bestselling Author Nalini Singh

King Dylan MacLeod is one of the last pure-bred dragon shapeshifters in existence—and ruler of a dying race, the Dragonstar clan. It falls to him to protect his people—and their ancient magic. He has one more duty: to provide an heir.

Like all dragons, Dylan can only procreate with his destined mate—for whom he’s searched for five hundred years. His dark, rampant sexual appetite has earned him quite the reputation, all in the pursuit of his one true match.

But his search is delayed when a deadly disease sweeps through the Dragonstars, and Dylan must venture to the human world to find a cure. He tracks down renowned biochemist Phoebe Quillum, never imagining the beautiful scientist will be the mate he’s been seeking for centuries. But no sooner do they meet then Phoebe and Dylan are besieged by an obsessive, overpowering sexual desire.

Their passion turns to something truer—and they know in their souls and bodies that they’re in too deep to get out. And when Phoebe is kidnapped by Dylan’s oldest enemy, he must risk everything to reclaim the only woman he’s ever loved, or his clan will be wiped out forever.

Beginning With Their Baby: July 2010

Camille Arraby is impulsive, creative and completely commitment phobic. An artist who works odd jobs to pay the bills, she takes impetuousness to a whole new level—she’s managed to live her entire adult life without putting down roots or taking on responsibilities. But why would she when there’s a big world out there dying to be explored and she’s only seen about half of it? Carpe diem is her catch phrase, which is why she goes home with the tall, good-looking guy she met at a friend’s art exhibit. One night stands aren’t her usual thing, but this guy is just too delicious to let slip through her fingers. One night turns into six weeks, and suddenly she’s looking into the eyes of a guy thinking about commitment. That’s all it takes for the girl voted most likely to sail around the world to take off with a wink and a wave. Love is fine—as long as someone else is falling into it.

Matt Jenkins is haunted by dreams of Camille. From the moment he first saw her, he wanted as much as she would give him—and probably a whole lot more. An architect who is used to bringing order to even the most chaotic project, Camille is a challenge he just can’t resist. And when he starts to fall for her, the control freak in him does something it’s never done before—it surrenders to the inevitability of falling in love. But when Camille takes off on him, unwilling to even give a relationship between them a try, he gives up on her. He’s been burned before—badly—and the idea of chasing after another woman who doesn’t care enough about him to stick around isn’t his idea of a good time. So he writes her out of his life … until the day she shows up, pregnant, on his doorstep.

Opposites attract, but how do two such different people put aside their differences and try to build a life for themselves—and their child?

Well, that’s a brief overview of three of the different types of books I write (I also write YA paranormal for Walker. My first book, Tempest Rising, which is about a girl who must chose to be human or mermaid, hits the shelves next March).

I’m an across the board writer, largely because I’m such an across the board reader. I love everything, which you’ll realize later this week when I give my list of DIKs. So I have to ask—what’s your favorite type of romance novel?

Oh I can't narrow it down to one particular type...I really enjoy all the sub-genres of romance...if I had to pick my top three would go something like this (in no particular order)
*romantic suspense
*erotic romance
*m/m romance

Hi Anna,

I love romantic suspense, too (and obviously feel the same about erotic, since I write it ;). In fact I just finished reading all of Karin Slaughter's backlist. I found her a few weeks ago and absolutely love her! Thanks for stopping by!

Sullivan McPig said...

for me that would be Supernatural and Historical Romances.
I might give contemporary a chance once in a while but only if it has something exotic added to the mix.

Welcome to the island Tracy! It's great to have you here.

Currently, I am enjoying more urban fantasy and mystery/suspense romance. But I love em all and go from YA romance to Sci-fi romance then to historicals and off to erotics!

Variety is the spice of life as they say!

Hi Tracy
Can't wait to read what your DIK's are. I gravitate towards (not in any order - just by mood) hot romantic suspense, contemps, erotica & M/M and prefer third person POV. If it's a fave author though I will try another genre. I plan on trying Dark Embers as the excerpt I read was awesome.
Have fun on the island.

Tracy said...

It's great to have you here Tracy!

I'm ALMOST an across the board reader. I really love contemps, historicals, westerns, and paranormals - both m/f & m/m. I do read some Sci-fi and fantasy but it's not really my thing on a regular basis.

Nice to see that you write as diversely as you read. :)

Lea said...

Welcome to the island Tracy!

May favorite sub-genres in romance are dark paranormal erotic and erotic suspense / erotic romance. It's a tie and it depends on my mood.

I have to say I read a great Tracy Wolff book recently (Full Exposure), erotic and suspenseful - awesome read.

Looking forward to your visit tomorrow Tracy!

Sullivan McPig, I love, love, love Paranormals, especially shifters and witches.

MsM-- OMG, I just read Patricia Bigg's entire Mercy series. They were fabulous, fabulous UF!

Hi Mary :) Thanks so much-- Has the ARC of Dark Embers arrived yet? My editor said she'd started mailing them out.

Tracy and Lea, thanks so much for having me! This is such a fun blog and I'm excited about being a part of it :)

I like romantic suspense.
I have been reading really good reviews about "Tease Me". Would love to read.

Mary G said...

Hi Tracy
I wasn't sure what was happening with the ARC with me being in Canada. I will look out for it.
So nice that they will send it.
Thanks for letting me know.

Welcome to the island Tracy!!!! HEY honey!!!!!!!!!!! I can not wait to see how you spend your days here!

Unknown said...

Hey Tracy! *waves* I'm like you, I can't narrow it down what I read, I like variety, and if a novel is well written, I might become fan of a new genre I never thought I would enjoy.

I love all kinds of romances: paranormal, historical, contemporary, in urban fantasies, erotic romances. These are my most popular choices :-)

Thank you,
