Review & Giveaway: Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend by Kerri Carpenter

The Faerie Queen’s review Five words to describe Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend? Adorable. Low angst. Day-dreamy. Quick. Luke and Lola meet at Luke’s high school reunion, where Lola is pretending to be someone else at the behest of her best friend and roommate. Lola was recently dumped, and Frankie wanted to get her out of her funk, so why not take a page out of the Golden Girls playbook by crashing a party? Luke promises to not rat Lola out…as long as she helps him with a little problem: his family reunion. Due to his own issues, he’s sworn off commitment, but his family aren’t on board with that decision, so clearly the best thing to do is bring a pretend girlfriend along, right? (Let’s all collectively roll our eyes at this…) The number one thing I learned from this book is that I need to watch The Golden Girls. Each […]

Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: The First Time at Firelight Falls by Julie Anne Long

The Faerie Queen’s review Again, I have been surprised and delighted by a book. I mean, I was already on board for a book about a single mom and a principal – just think of the sexual fantasies wrapped up in that one – but I wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did. If I ever become a single mom, I want to be Eden and have hot-as-sin relationship with the principal. Plus, then I’d have the coolest kid and some awesome family around me. Because, honestly, Annelise was awesome. She’s 10, she’s clever, she’s polite, and she has an awesome relationship with her mom. They’re friends. And, you know what they say, kids say the darnedest things, which applies to Annelise 100%. I know, I know. A romance book shouldn’t be all about a kid, but 1 of my stars is genuinely because of what a […]

Interview & Excerpt: How to Forget a Duke by Vivienne Lorret

Hey everyone! Today, we’re joined by Vivienne Lorret, author of How to Forget a Duke, for a special Q&A and an excerpt! Learn about Vivienne’s writing process, what she’d tell her younger self, and more. You can also find out more about her book, read a short excerpt, and enter a giveaway at the end! An interview with Vivienne Lorret If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be? So many things, but most of all—be fearless. Of course, it’s difficult to start off this way when your internal editor is breathing down your neck. So, before you begin to write, take your internal editor by the hand and explain that you have to do this without her. Then write what you want to say, what’s in your heart. Pour it all out onto the page and don’t hold back. Keep going until every single word contains your DNA. Then, and […]

Review: His Outback Temptation by Annie Seaton

Review: His Outback Temptation by Annie Seaton

The Faerie Queen’s review This one was a really weird one for me. For a romance, it didn’t really hit the mark. But then I did appreciate some of the things it did do. So what do I mean? Let me see if I can break it down. Sebastian (Seb) is the last of four grandchildren to come home to the farm that his grandparents handed over to Seb and his cousins. As a photographer, he’s travelled the world, but now’s the time to come home, or so he thinks. On his plane is the Italian Isabella (Bella), who is visiting her dad in Prickle Creek before going off to Windsor, England to follow her culinary ambitions in a posh pub. In a somewhat problematic “meetcute”, the two find each other in the airport and decide to go back to Prickle Creek together. From a modern life standpoint, I liked […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Sweet Home Highlander by Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Sweet Home Highlander by Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan

The Faerie Queen’s review So, something to know about me. I love Sweet Home Alabama. (I watch it almost every year.) Yet, somehow, it didn’t dawn on me until a third of the way through that this book is Sweet Home Alabama, except set in 1820s Scotland. You’d think the name would tip me off, eh? So many things were similar, from the reason Aisla returns for a divorce so she can marry someone else to the way she slips right back into her old accent when worked up. I was absolutely delighted. So the premise of the book is that two Scottish teens fell in love over the course of a few years, eloped, and then had a pretty bad start at life together. After a particularly terrible event, Aisla leaves, going to live with an aunt in Paris, where she stays for six years and befriends a Frenchman. […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton

Con artist meets charity fundraiser in One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton, and we’ve got the first chapter right here! About the book Chapter 1 Was she desperate enough to stand on a barstool in a crowded pub and ask for money? Finley Cartwright sipped her second Midori Sour and considered the state of her desperation and the amount of courage that was contained in a green cocktail. She hadn’t meant to overspend on their new Dollars for Daughters website, or be the cause for her stressed business partner, Lenny Bradshaw, showing up for work that morning with her shirt on inside out. Now they had to choose between paying for their gorgeous, new, electronic home or the rent on their pokey, made-of-old-bricks office. The charity was supposed to be Fin’s way out of waitressing and sweating on her agent finding her a TV commercial or getting a callback after an […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Back to the Start by Elle Keating

A second-chance sports romance? Sign me up! Today, we’ve got the first chapter from Back to the Start by Elle Keating! After you’ve dipped your toes in, scroll down to the end for an awesome giveaway! About the book Chapter One Jake Stand up straight. Stare dead ahead. Smile at your sister. Jake McGinnis watched his sister, Carina, sway to the music. Her fiancé of only five minutes brushed a lock of hair behind her ear and wiped away the tears from her still-flushed cheeks. But they were happy tears. Which meant Josh Graham was a lucky man. As long as Carina’s fiancé kept a smile on her face, he was allowed to live. “Look how happy your sister is, Jake. I’ve never seen her so in love,” his mom said. Though Jake towered over Lucrezia McGinnis by at least eight inches, he would always be her little boy. It wasn’t […]

Excerpts: The Hunt for an Alpha tour, featuring Bitten Under Fire by Heather Long and Wolf of Her Own by N.J. Walters

We’ve got a double-whammy for you today! As part of the Hunt for an Alpha tour, we have excerpts from two new wolf shifter books: Bitten Under Fire by Heather Long and Wolf of Her Own by N.J. Walters! Excerpt Cottonmouth and cracked lips woke Bianca. Her eyelids weighed a ton, and her knuckles burned. Then the twinges along her back added insult to injury. Awareness following discomfort, Bianca jerked as her eyes opened. Beeping machines, a hiss of oxygen, dim lighting, and a swaying sensation all surrounded her. “Hello there,” an unfamiliar voice greeted her. The woman who appeared in her line of sight wore a uniform, her blonde hair perfectly tucked and pinned. “I’m Corpsman McGinnis, and you’re aboard the USS Seahawke. Do you know your name?” “Bianca,” she began, but the word came out strained and choked. Coughing, she closed her eyes and grimaced. “Easy, take a sip of […]

What happens when your best friend gets divorced, and his ex-wife comes to you? Find out in Screwed by Kelly Jamieson! About the book Excerpt Their eyes locked together. Cash went very still, his hand on her back, warm and strong. “What?” Callie slid off the stool, her body brushing against Cash’s, went onto tiptoes, and touched her lips to his. “Sex,” she whispered. “I need sex.” She gripped his T-shirt in both hands and pulled herself closer, pressing against him. He sucked in a sharp breath, and his hands went to her hips. “Callie…” Her eyes drifted closed, and she pressed her mouth to his. “Mmm.” A groan rumbled in his chest as she licked his bottom lip, then kissed him again. And he kissed her back, his mouth opening. He took control of the kiss immediately, and her knees went weak. She clung tighter to him as her head […]
