Excerpt: One Night by Allie Everhart

Happy Monday! To get the week started, here’s an excerpt from One Night by Allie Everhart. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt AMBER “So…can I come in?” Dylan laughs a little. “Oh, um, I um…” My brain still isn’t working. I can’t even form sentences. What is he doing here? The thought leaves my mouth. “What are you doing here?” I step aside to let him in. “I told you, I had to give you something.” He still has that smile as he comes into my apartment and closes the door. I hold up the envelope. “You already gave it to me.” “I could’ve just left that at your door. That’s not what I came here to give you.” “I don’t understand.” He steps up to me and his hand cups my cheek, his eyes moving over my face. “You’re even more beautiful than I remembered.” […]

Excerpt: Abroad Book Two by Liz Jacobs

Happy Friday! We’ve got another excerpt for you today, this time from Abroad Book Two by Liz Jacobs! As usual, we’ll start with some information about the book, and you’ll find a giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt A shift next to Nick, then a sigh. He froze. Had he woken Dex up after all? He waited as Dex moved behind him, and then the futon shifted. Dex was up. Nick turned over, only to see him escape quietly out of the study. Nick took advantage of it and shifted into a position he could maybe fall asleep in, provided he could shut his fucking brain up. God, sleeping next to another person was stressful as hell. He and Lena did it rarely enough that he had never managed to get used to it. Dex didn’t seem to have this problem. Again, Nick’s lack of experience made him squirm. Dex […]

Introducing Reverse Harem Month!

Introducing Reverse Harem Month!

As announced on Twitter, Love in a time of Feminism is kicking of 2018 with the theme… Reverse Harem! What is Reverse Harem? You probably know what a harem is, but just in case, it’s a term to denote either the area of a man’s home designated for women (wives, concubines, and female servants), as well as the group of women themselves. With regards to fiction, you’ll most likely read it relating to the group of women, all centred around one man. By logic, a reverse harem is the opposite: a group of men, centred around on woman. It might be worth noting that reverse harem does not necessarily have to involve romantic relationships and can be used to simply describe a main cast consisting of one girl and multiple guys, but given this blog is dedicated to romance, we’ll stick to just the romantic relationships. Reverse harem is more commonly […]

Excerpt: A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North

Heya! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Melody watched him walk away beneath her damp lashes. She’d never really paid much attention to Daveed before. He’d been one of Heath’s friends and always hanging around the periphery of their group, but had sort of kept to himself. Now, though, he’d come to her aid in her hour of need—or more like day of desperation—and a girl couldn’t ignore such chivalry. As the silence between them grew more awkward by the second, she got up and wandered over to the table, which was covered by papers and post-it notes. Daveed didn’t look up at her at all, so she finally pulled out a chair and sat, forcing a tremulous smile. “What are […]

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

The Faerie Queen’s review This novella was a surprisingly good read! It started out a bit weird, but then I got into it. At 120 pages, it’s very quick, and as you can imagine, things don’t get as developed as they could. I could have actually read a full version of this, but then I also loved how easy it was to get through. I could just enjoy it without getting too bogged down. I was also not feeling too great when I started it, but because it was quick and light, it was a great pick-me-up. The story is told over twelve chapters and swaps narration between Adriana, a “governess”, and Alexander, a duke. Adriana is quite scrappy but very caring underneath it all, while Alexander is your typical brooding hero. After discovering that Adriana isn’t who she says she is, Alexander threatens to throw her out on Christmas […]

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

The Faerie Queen’s review Waaay at the start of this year, I reviewed Some Kind of Magic, starring scientist Eden and down-to-earth rockstar Adam. I was pretty excited when the author reached out and asked if I wanted to read the next book in the series. This time, the focus was on Eden’s musician brother and a photographer looking to make a name for herself. One of the minor niggles I had with the first book was that, despite showing a great relationship, it didn’t have quite enough sizzle for my tastes. I went into book two hoping that, given how much of a flirt Micah is, this book would hit the spot. Our two leads are Jo, a photographer working to make it as a paparazza, and Micah, Eden’s brother and rockstar with a string of casual relationships. Micah showed how he was the less cynical of the two by […]

Excerpt: Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

The holidays are slowly starting to creep up on us. I know that I, for one, like to read a few holiday-themed books, especially right around Christmas. If you’re anything like me, you might be on the prowl for some new reads, and I’ve got one for you. Today, you can try a taster from Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis! First, here’s a bit more about the book. About the book Excerpt At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.” “Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands. He was looking at her like . . . well, she wasn’t sure what was […]

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

The Faerie Queen’s review Nothing like a book to expand your mind past the stereotypes and beliefs you had for another kind of life. That’s one of my favourite things about reading: exploring other people’s lives and trying out new ways of thinking. And that’s what happened in this book. Much like Braden had to face his contempt for TV shows featuring hunting, I had to face my issues with hunting itself. I mean, Bambi, guys. Luckily, this book was written in such a way that I was hooked on the characters and their attraction, enough to distract me from the fact that they enjoyed killing things. But more than that, it showed me that while there are idiots who go around doing it irresponsibly, there are people who go hunting for the challenge, and who don’t do it just to hang up trophies but actually use the animal for […]
