Review & Excerpt: Hot for His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

The Faerie Queen’s review When I first learned about this book, I knew I needed to Get My Hands On It. A romance between two bloggers? Hell. Yeah. In what universe would I not want to read this??? (And then to learn the author is a mom and blogger, like the heroine? It means this book is going to be authentic af. Well, as authentic as a romance novel can be.) READERS. Nothing prepared me for the perfection that is Reid. As a recently single person considering what I want in my next relationship, I think all future prospects have been ruined by Reid. He’s kind, considerate, intelligent, caring, funny, romantic, hot af… He’s completely accepting of the fact that Andi is a single mom with lots of responsibilities. He can cook – or grill – and well. He’s looking for a real, meaningful relationship. He is a blogger and understands the work that […]

Review & Giveaway: Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

Review & Giveaway: Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review I am straight-up addicted to this series. Alex can’t write these stories fast enough. You can read my review of book 1 and book 2 if you need to see why. Let’s first talk about the plot, and then I’ll get to the boys, yeah? Well, this might be the most exciting of the series so far. I loved the first, and then the second was a little less thrilling, but things ramp up this time round. It’s been discovered that Lera is more powerful than anyone gave her credit for, but she has no control over that power, something crucial for her to survive the trials. But it’s no longer just the trials that she has to worry about, as danger from the outside – particularly Mors – is catching up on the new quint. And while there are hints of malice from the Lunos […]

Excerpt: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

Excerpt: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

It’s a new month and therefore a fresh start. To kick of October right, I’ve got an excerpt for you from a faerie book I’m immensely excited for: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy! I can’t wait for October 22nd… Just look at that cover! About the book Excerpt There are so many people in here. Royals and social climbers of the Winter Court, I try to see into the edge of the room, cast in shadows, but the light surrounding me blinds me from it. The applause continues as I make my way onto the stage, in front of the table where the Vasara’s sit, with Cade to the left of his father who is just an older, slightly greying version of Cade, and Rowan to the right by his mother. I curtsy as tradition dictates and hold my submissive position until I am released by King Earon’s words. “Emilia […]

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

The Faerie Queen’s review You can read my review for the first book, Survival of the Richest, here, but below are the main points: The complexity of the relationships between the main characters was incredible. I couldn’t untangle the love triangle. The chemistry between all three was intense. Money was a massively toxic influence in everyone’s lives. Well, dear readers, The Evolution of Man was thankfully great for all the same reasons. I really felt for Harper. In the first book, she lost her father to a sudden heart attack. In this book, she must sit back and watch as her mother succumbs to late-stage cancer, too late for treatment if her mother even wanted it. There is so much pain in this book, and really, the whole book is about her dealing with it in various ways. First and foremost, she seeks out physical distractions from the two men her in love/lust […]

Review: A Nordic King by Karina Halle

Review: A Nordic King by Karina Halle

The Faerie Queen’s review Once again, Karina Halle proves why she’s an autobuy author for me. I have loved every single book I’ve read by her since I was told to read Smut two years ago. Plus, her covers are always beyond sexy and just pop. Right from the start, this was giving me The Sound of Music vibes. A young woman (26) gets a job as a nanny for a grumpy older widower’s (40) children, and she brings life and joy back to the household. There was even (really bad) singing. As a fan of TSOM, I was completely ok with this connection. Of course, there were some differences. For a start, the widower in this case was the king of Denmark, and he didn’t use whistles to communicate with his two daughters. In fact, Aksel loved his girls and was very affectionate with them… when he saw them. And the nanny […]

First Chapter & Giveaway: Summer of Scandal by Syrie James

Summer may be fading away, at least here in the northern hemisphere, but Avon Impulse is sneaking in some more summer romance in the form of the recently released Summer of Scandal by Syrie James! Get started with chapter 1 down below to see if this historical romance is up your street, plus enter to win a paperback copy of Runaway Heiress, the first book in the series! About the book Chapter 1 Bolton, Cornwall, England June 21, 1889 The brisk wind bit Madeleine Atherton’s cheeks as she stepped down from the train. Cornwall might be known for its temperate climate, but it felt more like November than June. At least the rain had stopped—for the moment. The rural station at Bolton was much smaller than Madeleine had remembered. Just a redbrick building that resembled a cottage, with a single wooden bench facing the tracks. The platform was empty. Beyond the station […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Rose in the Highlands by Heather McCollum

Runaway Englishwoman meets Highland chief in A Rose in the Highlands by Heather McCollum, the first in her new Highland Roses School series. To get you excited, I’ve got a wee excerpt – the couple’s less than friendly first meeting… – and a giveaway for an Amazon gift card! About the book Excerpt Black soot scorched upward around the door, the glass windows burst out, the remaining shards like jagged teeth set in a series of open-mouthed screams. Had the captain mistakenly set her castle ablaze? She flattened her hand to her chest and straightened as James came to the door. “The storm is upon us, milady. Best to get you three inside. I will help ye in while Thomas holds the horses.” “Thomas won’t be able to hold the horses by himself if they spook,” Evelyn said, placing her hand in James’s. “We will be fine.” Had he not seen the soot?

Review: A Love Letter From the Girls Who Feel Everything by Brittainy C. Cherry & Kandi Steiner

Review: A Love Letter From the Girls Who Feel Everything by Brittainy C. Cherry & Kandi Steiner

The Faerie Queen’s review As a girl who feels everything, and deeply, I was both scared and excited to read this collection of poetry. I don’t read a lot of poetry, so I can’t say how it compares to other volumes. That being said, I believe poetry, more than other types of writing, is a very subjective experience. That’s not to say other writing isn’t subjective, just that poetry is so completely about feelings and experiences, and is so succinct in expressing these, that it targets your own feelings, and you’ll get the most out of poetry if there’s a connection between what you’re reading and what you’re experiencing. For me, this was very much the case. Like I said, I am very emotional. I’ll own that. I hate that being emotional – and therefore vulnerable – is thrown around like an insult, like you’re weak and out of control […]

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Shameless by Cherrie Lynn

The Faerie Queen’s review This is a novella for those of you who want an espresso shot of the brother’s best friend trope. Meredith gets a kick up the backside while on holiday with her brother and friends, including Cam, her brother’s best friend since childhood. After crushing on Cam for a long time, she makes her move, but will Cam be receptive? Because it was so short, I didn’t get too invested in the story. Novellas can be a struggle because there’s not a lot of time to introduce the reader to new characters and develop their relationship. Luckily, for this one, while it did feel a bit rushed at times, I was glad that there was a long history between the two main characters, and that they’d had romantic feelings for each other for a lot of that time. I personally had an issue that others might not. […]
