Confidence Tricks by Tamara Morgan
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Genre: Contemporary

Asprey Charles never intended to become a thief.
As the youngest son in the illustrious Charles line, Asprey grew up believing he would one day take his place in the family art appraisal and insurance firm. And by 'take his place,' he meant continuing to enjoy his playboy lifestyle, spending family money on his Cessna and shirking every responsibility that dared come his way.

But when a life of crime is thrust upon him, Asprey is happy to slip on a mask and cape and play a highwayman rogue. After all, life is one big game—and he's excellent at playing.

Poppy Donovan has been a thief for as long as she can remember.
Born on the wrong side of the tracks, Poppy hasn't had very many opportunities to better herself in this life. That's why she sees her recent release from jail as a fresh start—no more crime, no more cons. Too bad the resolution doesn't stick. When she learns that her grandmother lost her savings to a low-life financial advisor who preys on seniors, she vows to dip her toes back in the game one more time.
It's all going just fine until the necklace she intends to pawn to fund her con gets stolen by a handsome, mocking, white collar thief. A handsome, mocking, white collar thief who, it turns out, has the potential to steal a whole lot more than money. If Poppy isn't careful, this blue blood with no business on her side of the tracks is going to run off with her heart...and that's the one thing she can't afford to lose.

Where to Buy*:  
Sorry, there are no buy links up yet. Keep checking Tamara's website for more information though! :)
More Info:


When Tamara revealed the cover earlier this week, I just HAD to use it--it's goregous! I love the way the couple are posed, and especially how the heroine is reaching into his back pocket (sure, she's a thief, so one would assume it's to steal something--but hey, he's a sexy man, so who knows, it could be more.... *wink* ).

I LOVE Tamara's previous works, and though this one will not be part of that series, I am still dying to read it. Not only does the book sound great, the cover's delicious and I already know that I love Tamara's stories. This one will be going on my (rare) pre-order list as soon as links go live. :)

Oh, girls, all three of you are missing out big time! Shame on you. But if you promise to add her books to your list, I'll forgive you! :)


The_Book_Queen said...

Now it's too bad that we have to wait until Feb! :(

Oh you are a busy lady, aren't you? ;) I've thought about separating into two blogs, one for YA and the other for adult, but I'd never have the time! But I'm glad to see you've done it, love the new blog, and I'm glad to hear that you'll be joining the fun twice (I hope?). :)


Unknown said...

Is it okay if I do lusting for covers with my adult blog and YA Blog. Thanks..I hope I am not in over my head adding a YA blog. We I did Wickedly Delicious I was only reading Adult Romances but lately I have been seeing good YA books and thought for me it would be easier for different blogs I like to keep Wickedly Delicious only Adult.

The_Book_Queen said...

Not a problem at all! :) I'm happy to have you on board--twice. lol. :)

In the future, I may consider it. With some of the erotica I read, I feel weird sometimes posting the occasional YA review on here...But since I review more adult than YA, I'm okay with it for now. Who knows what the upcoming years will bring though? ;)

Thanks sweetie. It will be most likely not every week. Just when ever I come across a cover I really enjoy like Immortal City.
