Tracey Cramer-Kelly - book author

Tracey Cramer-Kelly started riding motorcycles at the age of sixteen. A month shy of her eighteenth birthday, she left for Army basic training. She spent five years in the Army National Guard as a combat medic, where she fell in love with helicopters. She went on to get her helicopter pilot license outside the military, and has spent time with search-and-rescue teams in Idaho.

In 2019 she returned to school to re-certify as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), and currently works at various sporting and music events when she's not processing orders for the family business (Leader Motorcycle) or working at a substance abuse counseling center.

Tracey lives in small-town Minnesota with her husband, two kids and two cats. They are a true "soccer family" (she even worked as a referee for two years). She enjoys downhill skiing and spending time at the family lake place.

Striking Out…

Jamie Lawson always believed he’d make it to baseball’s big leagues, but when a tragic accident leaves him maimed, and his wife dead, Jamie heads back to his small Minnesota hometown with his dreams shattered. Six years later, he’s opened his own chiropractic clinic, but guilt and grief still haunt him. The closest he comes to baseball these days is coaching little league and umpiring for the town’s Fourth of July softball tournament. He certainly doesn’t have room in his life for the pretty stranger who shows up at the tournament and then boldly asks him on a date.

The Boys—and Girls—of Summer

After an ugly divorce, grade school teacher Kira Walker needs a break to reassess her life and come to terms with being single. Spending the summer with her sister, she attends the holiday softball tournament. But how can she keep her mind on the game—and her goals—when the umpire is such a distraction? She might be up for a summer fling if it was with Sexy Umpire Man.

Sliding into Home…

Kira’s got her own share of past hurts, but as the summer—and the romance—heats up, her playful nature coaxes Jamie into rediscovering parts of himself he thought he’d buried with his wife. Kira has thrown Jamie a curveball. Will he let her walk, or will he embrace the possibility that his glory days just might be in the future, with Kira?
When Major Aaron Bricewick is rescued from Afghanistan terrorists, he thinks the worst is over. But his personal journey is just beginning…

The first surprise is the amputation of one of his legs.

The second is the woman he left behind, now a widow with a 4-year-old son – and his new prosthetist (artificial limb maker).

He vows that losing his leg won’t derail his career. But maintaining his outward appearance as a got-it-together officer becomes increasingly difficult as he faces one personal demon after another – and sees his career aspirations slipping away. And though he has no intention of expanding his life to include a woman, his heart has other ideas – and he finds himself questioning the very foundation of his personal beliefs.

When violence – and unexpected redemption – touch his life again, Aaron must make a stand. Which will he choose: duty or love?
From a tragic past…

Police officer Ian McCleary knows from personal experience what abuse looks like. Thanks to his best friend’s family, he managed to escape his childhood—and the small town he grew up in. Now he’s back to protect and serve those who knew him as a kid. That’s all the more reason to stick to business and toe the professional line—even as his growing attraction to Rachel tempts him to cross it.

To a dangerous present…

Rachel gave up her dream of becoming a nurse, but she still craves marriage and a family with all her heart. Josh seemed like the answer—but now she’s hiding a secret that could destroy those hopes, too. She doesn’t dare accept help from anyone, not even the handsome police officer who steps in to help her. But Ian’s kindness makes her feel things she can’t ignore…

Can they create a new future?

When Ian’s past shows up on his doorstep, his world is thrown into chaos. He’s determined to protect those he loves, but can he protect his own heart? Does Rachel have the courage to leave Josh? Can she convince Ian to let down his walls and forge a new future together
U.S. Army Rangers Cory Foster and Chase Richards are at the top of their game. They’ve seen it all. They know it all. Or so they think.

And when he meets Doctor Madeline Wright she makes it clear she doesn’t date military men – or the family members of her patients. But when a beaten and bloody Cory shows up on Maddy's doorstep, she can’t turn him away.

Chase has been infatuated with Ella Foster for years but, as his best friend’s sister, she is strictly off-limits. But when Cory asks him to watch over Ella while she recuperates, Chase gets more than he bargained for. Ella has wanted Chase ever since he appeared as her knight in shining armor during an attempted rape. But he’s so far out of her league, she’s sure she can never have him.

All she needs is an open road…

Hollywood movie director and single mom Gina Devereaux isn’t about to let her past defeat her. It’s hard work but she’s firmly on the path to making her dreams come true.

It gives him a glimpse of what life could be. Will their fragile new feelings for each other survive the media frenzy when they return to the set?
