She practices gratitude every day.

Praise for Degree of Solitude:
…a delightfully happy ending which gave me warm fuzzy feelings.
This is a welcome addition to one of my favourite series EVER.
It is a swoon worthy love story with a little twist thrown in.
Delightfully descriptive language that allows the reader to feel the constricting corsets and breathe deeply of the mountain air.
One of the best series I have ever read.
Every single book in her Scandalous Scions series has been fantastic - you’re instantly transported back in time, surreptitiously a fly on the wall, watching the plot unfold.
Loved this book! You can’t help but root for the hero and heroine in her books!
I totally loved this latest entry of the Scandalous Scions series! It's mysterious and romantic in the best Gothic manner.
I keep thinking that Tracy is soon going to run out of ideas for her Victorian Family but find that yet again I'm surprised.
What always amazes me and brings me back for more is the wonderful feeling of family is important that runs through all of these Degree of Solitude books. So good.
Tracy has written yet another AMAZING book!
Another fabulous, nail-biting addition to a never-a-dull-moment series.
I didn't know better I'd have thought Tracy was actually there in the room, instead of just writing the book.
I absolutely recommend the series, worth your time!
To an undaunted wallflower, he's just the beast next door.
Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now he wants to get even.
Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.
When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.
Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens?
And a two-legged dog.
And a foul-mouthed parrot.
And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog . . .
Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him.
Not if he ruins her first.
