Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy


To read my 5 star review: CLICK HERE

18005643From Goodreads: Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother’s affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she’s planned. She’s planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.

Dallas Brown lives a life all his own. He doesn’t do relationships, he doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn’t live up to anyone’s expectations but his own.

When Carmyn’s fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can’t seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she’d planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.

As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.

**Due to content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.**
The Wicked Thing Playlist

Some of the songs on this list are on it because the words meant something to the story as I wrote the book. Others because the tone of the song captured the emotion, or mindset, or vibe I needed to write a particular scene.


Angeline Kace’s Playlist for Wicked Thing

1. Wicked Game, Phillip Phillips—This is actually where I got the title for the book. It was originally called something else, but then I found this song and it was perfect for the book.
2. Stay, Rihanna
3. Arms, Christina Perri
4. Home, Gabrielle Aplin—I listened to this song a lot while writing. It’s such an emotionally evocative song that it helped me tap into the emotions I needed.
5. Words, Skylar Grey—This one was right there with Home. Plus, the words of the song really fit a lot of what Carmyn was feeling at certain parts of the book.
7. Be My Baby, The Ronettes—The lake scene. ;)
8. Bourbon in Kentucky, Dierks Bentley
9. Consequences, Vanessa Daou—This song helped me write some of Carmyn’s scenes where I needed to channel certain emotions.
10. Changed by You, Between the Trees—Fitting for what Carmyn was feeling.
11. Find Me, Boyce Avenue—The song Carmyn dances to when her heart is broken. I actually listened to this song on repeat while writing that scene. Also cried through writing it as well.
12. (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life, Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes
13. Cold Blues, The Quaker City Night Hawks—I wrote the majority of this book listening to these guys on repeat. The songs helped me channel Dallas and the location and just everything. When I hear these guys, I think of Dallas and Wicked Thing.
14. Some of Adam’s Blues, The Quaker City Night Hawks
15. Ain’t No Kid, The Quaker City Night Hawks
16. Fox in the Hen House, The Quaker City Night Hawks
17. Rattlesnake Boogie, The Quaker City Night Hawks
18. Yellow Rose, The Quaker City Night Hawks

The Mephisto Mark Synopsis:

Orphaned at six and sent to live with abusive relatives in Bucharest, Mariah learned early in life to box up violent, agonizing memories and put them in permanent mental storage. Now almost nineteen, she has a paying job, a tiny apartment, and a plan to attend university. She loves her independence and is steadily overcoming her past, but when an enigmatic stranger walks into the pub where she works and the trajectory of her life changes yet again, she begins to wonder if she’ll run out of mental shelf space.

The only females unafraid of the Mephisto brothers are the extremely rare Anabo, born without Original Sin. Over one hundred years ago, Phoenix was first to find one, but he made a fatal mistake and she was murdered by his oldest brother and enemy, Eryx. Phoenix soldiered through the next century wrapped up in grief and guilt, his only outlet planning takedowns of those who pledged their souls to Eryx. When one of his brothers brings Mariah to Mephisto Mountain, he’s torn between his instinctive, powerful need to pursue her, and his certainty that he can never have her.

Drawn into the world of the Mephisto, Mariah sees the pain and misery Eryx unleashes on humanity, and the boxes in her mind begin to fly open, one by one. All that keeps her from slipping off the edge is her unlikely, sexually charged friendship with Phoenix. He’s incredibly screwed up; she’s completely broken. It would take a miracle for them to find happiness. Then Eryx brings the war for Hell to a whole new level, forcing Mariah and Phoenix to make a choice that will bind them together for all eternity, or rip them apart forever.

Stephanie-7937-LR-Color with copyrightTrinity Faegen Bio:

Author of the RITA winning Pink Files series, Stephanie Feagan has had a love affair with romance novels since she was eleven and discovered there are kissing scenes in Victoria Holt books. She spent a lot of time in her closet with a flashlight, reading as fast as possible to get to the end, only to start a new book and begin the whole Leave-Me-Alone-I’m-Reading cycle all over again. She still stays up until the wee hours to finish books, now courtesy of a lighted e-reader which she believes is mankind’s greatest invention ever.

Stephanie also writes Young Adult and New Adult paranormal romance as Trinity Faegen. A practicing CPA who loves travel, books, new pencils, old keys, and smart guys, she lives in the oilfields of west Texas with her engineer husband and a mean cat. She’d love to hear from you. She answers to Stephanie, Trinity, Hey Lady, and Mom, and can be reached at or

She’s aware the similarity between her pseudonym, Faegen, and her real name, Feagan, confuses pretty much everyone, herself included. Since so many mispronounce Feagan as FEEgan instead of FAYgan, she thought she’d mix it up when she took a pseudonym and make it easier on people. Now people say FayEEgen, and spell it wrong. Next time she takes a pen name, she’s totally going with Smith or Jones.
