In Love by Design by Tracy Ellen

In Love by Design is the third romantic and thrilling volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series.

Anabel Axelrod returns...but the sexy, blonde bookstore owner with a sassy attitude and a brain that never stops doesn't get to prove what a fabulous girlfriend she'll make for even one day before Luke disappears out of town. Let the troubles begin! Instead of getting to enjoy being a girl passionately in love, Anabel’s shiny new feelings and trust in her boyfriend are immediately put to the test. Who is the powerfully charismatic Luke Drake? What are his dark secrets? Does he really love Anabel, or has he been coldly manipulating her feelings to further an intricate design of diabolical revenge that has been in the making for years?

In Love by Design finds the confident Anabel desperately beginning to wonder if she’s wrong to believe in her incredibly hot, yet very tricky Dark Prince. Or is this one fairy tale where love cannot conquer all?

A note from Tracy Ellen: The books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series should be read in order for the most pleasurable reading experience. Thank you.

About the Author

About Tracy Ellen... I was born in Indiana to middle-class parents, the third out of five hellions. I often used my supernatural powers to force my family members to listen to me talk and tell stories. When they laughed of their own free will, I knew the world would someday, somehow be my stage. Then I discovered writing and never looked back. I’m married and still tormenting the man I started stalking at age seventeen. Luckily, I'm speaking about the same man. We live in Minnesota and the historical town of Northfield featured in Anabel’s Adventures is just down the road a jaunt. I like writing about the values and independent spirits of people found in small town living, but definitely with a modern twist. I hope you enjoy my books!

I love strong characters heroes/heroine. Totally badass kickbutt . The three series were all page turners, funny, adult, not vulgar. I love Luke and Anabel. She is the badass. I would be happy if a 4th book comes up.

I can only thank Tracy Ellen for writing such fun characters with great plots and storylines. I wanted to be in Anabel's family. Hell, I wanted to be Anabel! She is a strong, outspoken, soft and frilly - sounds contradictory, but Not! Luke is the consummate man's man. The only thing bad I can say is that the stories ended. Loved, Loved, Loved them and look forward to reading more of Tracy brilliant writing.

Tracey Ellen is an awesome writter. I loved this series. It's perfect. Romace, humor, suspence... great characters, passion, and a crazy wonderful family. Very well written. I only wish there were more books in this series I hated it coming to an end.

The third book is better than the first two. Love Bel's family and friends. And hot, hot Luke! These books are better than the Stephanie Plum books.

I just finished the third book of this series and I am looking foward to th fourth. This is a magnificant writer. She is truly gifted. I enjoyed her wit, humor, and, the amazing way she brings her characters to life. I also love that Anabel is a history buff. This is the best series I have read in a very long time. BRAVO!! :)

Tracy has done it again! Hilarious and irreverant humor in this series. Wait until you read page 215! (on my Nook, at least) Very few authors have made me laugh so much that I was unable to finish reading the page. Just as I thought I could continue reading, I lost it again! I knew immediately what was going to be written as soon as I saw the word "derringer". I thought, "No, surely not! Tracy is not going to say that.......yes, she is and she did! Hilarious! Every woman needs a friend like Annabel. I wish I had one. Tracy, another excellent story. Can't wait until book 4.

I loved this series and didn't want it to end.  I'm hoping that Tracy continues writing about the other characters, and adds several more books to this series.
