About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Tracey Devlyn wanted to be the next Dian Fossey and explore the wilds of Africa, but that was before she met chemistry and calculus and realized a business major, rather than a science degree, might be a better fit.

With an enthusiasm for research that translates into creative (and disturbing) plot twists for her characters to navigate, it’s no surprise that her suspense-laden stories excite her readers and offer a glimpse of the nefarious nature lurking behind her sweet smile. Despite the thrilling, emotional ride Tracey gives her readers, she enjoys an annoyingly normal lifestyle with her husband and rescue dogs at her suburban home outside Chicago.

4.5 Stars I'm a big fan of this series and this book was another winner! I couldn't put it down. Just ask my sleepless self. I just had to know what was going to happen next. I was on the edge of my seat pretty much the whole time I was reading this book. I loved Evie and Deke. They had great chemistry. They've had a thing for each other for a long time will they finally act on those feelings? There is danger lurking. Can they stop it before more lives are claimed?

An excellent addition to the series! As with the other books, Roaming Wild could absolutely work as a standalone, since the main focus is on the primary couple, Evie and Deke, this time around. The other 5 Steele siblings all make appearances, though, and the nonstop suspense and drama of this installment are likely to inspire you to give the others a try, though--just sayin'. ;) Deke and Evie are a great couple--solid chemistry, and they've known each other for years while Deke, her oldest brother's best friend waited for/dreaded Evie's growing up. He's got some hangups--Evie's so much younger, in addition to the whole younger sister of his best friend issue; and he's ready for a family when she's just starting a masters degree--on top of all of that, his (secret, real) job makes relationships difficult (though others in similar situations somehow manage--in his favor, he does realize the contradictions in his hangups even while sticking with them, so there is that).  There's an excellent suspense story here too, in addition to the relationship one--and both combine to make a book it's hard to put down. If you've read the other series books, you'll love this one; if you haven't yet, it's a great place to start! One more Steele sibling to go--can't wait! Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The reign of the Steele family continues as we get to know little sister Evie better! This family is super close-knit and fun to spend time with as we toil along from one adventure to another. There was a bit of a slowness to this story for a bit, but once we got deep into the mystery, it came to life. Great characters, good mystery and a happily ever after! The youngest Steele sibling has been crushing on big brother Britt’s best friend for as long as she can remember. He’s a hunk, he’s sweet and he for the most part he treats her like another big brother … but every once in awhile she sees that look in his eyes. She knows he wants her just as much as she wants her, she just has to make him admit it! Special Agent Deke Conrad does want Evie … but they have so much going against them. He’s older, he’s her brother’s best friend and he has way too many secrets to be able to pull off a happy ending. When circumstances arise that send him along on a mission with Evie and fellow traveling nurse, close quarters have him sharing an RV with Evie … and up close and personal is all it takes for their true feelings to explode! When danger from his secret life puts Evie in it’s target, will he be able to keep her safe and solve his case … and at the same time forge a future with her?

Tracey Devlyn brings us a fast paced and thrilling adventure with Roaming Wild. She mentions at the end of the book that she has never written a military style book before and I think she did wonderful in her first attempt. The idea of a elite black ops team within the US Fish and Wildlife Service was novel and interesting. The chemistry between Deke and Evie was off the charts and I couldn't help but root for Deke. He had given up so much because of his job and because of his friendship with the Steele family. I was really happy to see them finally accepting their love for each other. The suspense of the story was also riveting and I was glued to the book from start till end.

Evie Steele can stand up to any man. After all she has brothers who gave her no peace. This is why she won't let Deke Conrad refuse to acknowledge their attraction. He's determined to ignore their chemistry. He doesn't want to put her in danger. He's a special agent for the Federal Wildlife Service on a dangerous assignment. Will Evie ever get her man? This is an exciting and suspenseful story. Their romance adds to the drama as the enemy targets Evie. Deke is afraid he's not worthy of this feisty woman. Their battle of wills is amazing. I couldn't put this book down. There is so much action and so many unexpected twists that I couldn't wait to see what happens next. Deke and his team fight the wildlife traffickers who have no respect for animals or humans. I was shocked by their ruthless disregard for life. The story has violence that shocked me. I wanted right to prevail. Deke and Evie are compelling characters. I liked them. As always the Steele Family stands together to help as does Deke's team. Tracey Devlyn wrote an amazing story. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

This is Evie Steele's story. This book is part of the Steele Ridge series. I absolutely love this series. In this book Evie who has secretly been crushing on her brother's friend Deke for years, but he is older than her and seems to only think of her as his friends little sister. Deke has been in love with Evie for years, but doesn't want to risk losing his friendship with her brother and her entire family. When Deke returns to Steele Ridge he discovers that Evie is all grown up and is busy with her career. As fate would have it Evie is working on a traveling medical van and Deke ends up traveling with her and the rest of the crew so that he can write about them, or at least that is what he tells them. Deke and Evie are a great couple, things heat up, and Deke's job brings danger to Evie and th rest of the people on the medical van. Deke's brother Dylan is also in danger. This one has a lot of twists and turns, action, love, humor and interesting turn of events. It will keep you guessing and turning the pages for sure.

Deke Conrad has met his match with Evie Steele. Strong-willed Evie is determined to make Deke hers, even if doing so puts them both in danger. Roaming Wild is an amazing romantic suspense story that kept me captivated from the very beginning. Danger lurked around every corner and there were several tragic events that had to be analyzed and linked together to identify and find the enemy. I loved Evie and Deke's story. The entire Steele Ridge series is awesome! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

The Steel Ridge series grows more riveting with each new story...Ms Devlyn had me completely captivated from the onset, literally taking my breath away with the perfect combination of romance, intense intrigue, and familial loyalties. There was not one aspect of Derek and Evie's story that didn't surpass all expectations of what this sixth book in the series held. Their draw to each other was as heartwarming as it was heart stopping. Derek's strength and Evie's boldness created a unique couple who drew me into their depth of the long held pull towards each other. Ms Devlyn provided a roller coaster ride that was perfectly crafted to keep me hanging on page after page so completely engrossed in what action was just around the corner. Each aspect of the story was so believable that at times I needed a break to catch my breath before continuing. There is a certain sadness in knowing that only one more book, Jonah's story, remains in the series. The Steels have become a pseudo family...that'll be sure missed. This ARC book is a complimentary copy provided by the author. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

Deep breath. That is exactly what I had to do when I finished reading Roaming Wild by Tracey Devlyn. My heart was beating out of my chest and I almost couldn’t blink or read fast enough for fear of missing something near the end of the book. Devlyn writes a dark, romantic suspense filled with evil villains that make you shudder but balances it out well with a romance between life long friends. Roaming Wild is Evie Steele’s story. If you have read the other books in the Steele Ridge Series you have met Evie already and know she is the youngest sister of four brothers and a sister. She doesn’t back down from things easily and is sick of being treated like a little girl. As the best friend of Evie’s older brother, Britt, Deke Conrad has played it cool with Evie, not wanting to mess things up. His job as a Special Agent takes him away for long periods of time and requires him to keep secrets. Evie is just starting her nursing career. Deke is a decade older than Evie and would like to start a family. They are in different places, according to Deke and just doesn’t think it will work. Evie won’t give up. Devlyn writes a very creative mystery with many different connections and somehow keeps it all straight, allows the reader to easily follow along, and entertains us from start to finish. She really takes your emotions on a ride, so make sure you are ready! Devlyn always brings me new and exciting careers for her characters and I end up with a new appreciation for things in life that I know nothing about. In this story, she teaches me about wildlife trafficking. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Nor did I know about Special Agents other than those in the FBI or CIA! The romance between Deke and Evie is fun to watch. It’s not super flashy or sexy, but it fits the two of them and how long they have known one another. I love Evie’s tenacity and Deke’s soft spot for Evie. He doesn’t even stand a chance. It was a nice give and take between the two of them with a few passionate moments that were exactly what we needed to give us a break from the evil Harwood family. If you are looking for an original, emotional, romantic suspense give Roaming Wild a read.

'Roaming Wild' by Tracey Devlyn is book 6 in the " Steele Ridge" series. This is the story of Evie Steele and Deke Conrad. I have not yet read the other books in this series so for me this was a standalone book. Evie is a new nurse who is volunteering to help people with medical care in areas that need it. Deke is a Special Wildlife Agent who is trying to bring down people who are doing illegal trapping. Deke is Evie brother's best friend and is someone Evie has always had feeling for. Deke finds Evie attractive but keeps his distance because of his friendship with her brother and their age difference. But can they keep avoiding their feelings when they meet again? Evie and Deke story has some excitement and it is a fast past read. Overall I loved it. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

ROAMING WILD by Tracey Devlyn is an amazing Romantic Suspense. “Steele Ridge” Book 6 , but can be read as a stand alone. If you enjoy family saga, then I’d suggest reading the other 5 books in the series. However, not necessary to enjoy this story. The hero was a ruggedly sexy, strong and a protective, alpha male. The heroine was feisty, brave and brazen, a true heroine. I loved Evie and Deke, their story was intriguing in itself, but when added in the suspense, and mystery, WOW! The conflict was enough to keep me turning pages. I was emotionally invested from the first page to the last. The plot flowed seamlessly and continuingly. Fast paced and action packed with conflict, danger around every corner and the wildlife aspect was a plus for me. I enjoyed the fact Evie had issues, with panic attacks, as one who suffers from them occasionally, the author nailed it! An intriguing story with all the drama, emotions, conflict, suspense, mystery and romance a great Romantic Suspense should have to impress readers and keep them returning to Steele Ridge. Simply flawless, in my humble opinion! A must read for Romantic Suspense lovers, and fans of the “Steele Ridge” saga. Tracey Devlin is one of my favorite Romantic Suspense authors. She writes such thrilling, page turning stories, with emotional turmoil, as well as family oriented stories. The twists and turns were surprising, intriguing, and impressive. Another hit for Tracey Devlin!! Can't wait to visit “Steele Ridge” again, and learn what is in store for readers and the Steele family. I adore the Steele family!

Loved this story. I have only read two of the Steel Ridge books, and have loved each one as well. This one is not for the faint of heart. But if you are looking for a story filled with suspense, intrigue, whodunit, evil characters, wildlife trafficking, strong female characters as well as hunky male characters, this one is for you. A book that you will not want to put down. The main characters are Evie and Deke. Evie has been in love with Deke for most of her life, but he is 12 years older and best friends with Britt, one of Evie’s brothers. Which meant, best friend’s little sisters where not to be messed with. Evie is about to graduate from nursing school and is working in a mobile clinic that goes to small towns in the mountains. Deke, is a Wild Life special ops agent that frequently goes undercover. He posses as a journalist . It’s been a year since Deke has been back home .This time due to an injury . He too has been attracted to Evie, but feels he’s too old and jaded for her. Plus, she is just starting her career and her life. The bad guys will make your hair stand up but thank God, the good prevails. In the midst of all the drama, and suspense, family loyalties are strong and these two realize that obstacles can be overcome and that their HEA can be achieved. Once again, Ms Devlyn demonstrates her talent and shines in her skill as an author. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Roaming Wild by Tracey Devlyn Steele Ridge #6 Evie Steele knows what she wants and what she wants is Deke Conrad in her life as more than her oldest brother’s best friend. She wants him for much much more and she wants him forever. Deke, being older and working as a special agent in black ops for the Fish and Wildlife Service, has had a hankering for Evie for years but with his job and the 12 years between them has always kept a respectful brotherly distance. The potential for a relationship between Evie and Deke becomes more than just a possibility as they spend time together on the road while Evie and a nurse practitioner dispense medical services to the poor and Deke tags along to “write an article” while also trying to unearth a ring of smugglers of poached animal parts. The Steele family members from other books in the series make appearances from time to time but this action-packed romantic suspense is all about Evie and Deke finding a way to eventually have the HEA they both want. I liked Evie – she was intelligent, knew what she wanted, was strong both physically and emotionally, and was great partner material. She always looked for ways to deal with whatever came her way and never gave up. Deke was an alpha male and leader of his team. He was a good friend, team player, honest, caring, tender and yet tough, and more than capable of dealing with anything that came his way. I had the feeling that Deke’s team would make a great spinoff series for Ms. Devlyn to pursue…since all of the members of the team are bright, attractive, interesting and…single…I kind of hope there is a series about them to read in the future. I would like to thank the author for the copy of this book – this is my honest review. 4.5 Stars
