Excerpt & Giveaway: He’s a Brute (Tough Love #1) by Chloe Liese

Happy release week to He’s a Brute by Chloe Liese! This one is for those of you who like the alpha male athlete meets fierce female trope. Scroll down for a playlist, a giveaway, and an excerpt certain to get you revved up! (It certainly had me wanting more…) About the book Excerpt Her eyes caught candlelight like gemstones. Jade. Emerald. Glittering dark. She drank her whiskey and hummed while she scanned the menu. We needed to talk, because I’d told myself I wasn’t touching her until I knew more, and I couldn’t go much longer without contact. “I ordered ahead,” I said. “Prix Fixe.” She glanced up at me. “You just ordered without my input? What if I don’t like what you chose?” I shifted in my seat until our knees knocked. Better. “Without your input, yes. But I certainly considered what I thought you’d like.” She stared at […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair

Today, I’m bringing you more of the Hades and Persephone retelling A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair! Enjoy an excerpt to get you excited, then enter the international giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Persephone sat in the sunlight. She’d chosen her favorite spot at The Coffee House, an outdoor table just out of view of the shop’s window. Shade trees and box gardens teeming with purple aster and pink and white sweet alyssum lined the crowded pedestrian street. A light breeze carried the scent of spring and the honeyed air was mild. This was her season. She should have felt more relaxed. But her eyes drifted to a bunch of narcissus flowers that sat in a slender vase on her table. It was a sparse bouquet, and one flower’s petals were crisp and brown, curling like the fingers of a corpse. The narcissus were the flower […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: The Honeymooner (Paradise Bay #1) by Melanie Summers

As the April showers really kick in over here in the UK, I am once again dreaming of an escape to somewhere warm and sunny. So it seems only fitting to feature The Honeymooner by Melanie Summers today! I’ve got a funny little excerpt, and there is a killer giveaway at the end. About the book Excerpt “Oh my God…did we…?” I press the sheet to me again, gripping it so tightly, my knuckles turn white. “You don’t remember? It was amazing. The earth moved. And you—you were loud enough that we probably cleared out the entire resort.” He grins at me, then rolls off the bed and starts across the room, giving me a view of his muscly back and behind. Those are some seriously tight shorts. No, Libby! Do not focus on his taut buttocks! You are not that kind of girl. “I’m very sorry, but I’m afraid I […]

Review & Excerpt: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole

Review & Excerpt: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole

The Faerie Queen’s review I did something very silly and jumped from reading book 1 to book 3.5, but whatever, I really wanted Reggie’s story. I will definitely be going back to read the other books because this series is fab though! Anyway, we met Reggie in the first book as a badass lady who runs a website for geeky women to safely celebrate their geekitude. (Because the internet and the real world aren’t always too kind to nerdy women…) Reggie is killing it with her website, but she’s starting to slip up because she can’t sleep. Before she even started the website, she stumbled across a livestream of a guy who liked to talk while solving puzzles, and his voice used to calm her enough to sleep. She used replays of those livestreams until months before when they were all deleted. Now desperate, she hunts down the guy’s email […]

About the set Excerpts Hunted “Get undressed,” Oryn broke through my thoughts, letting go of my arm and pulling at my sleeve. “Hey.” I slapped his hand away. “Don’t manhandle me. Understand? And no one is taking my clothes off but me.” And Nero, it seemed. Crap. “Sharlot, this—” “It’s Scarlet.” I rolled my eyes. “Your garments carry your scent and will slow us down. We need a distraction.” My pulse was racing as I looked back, praying the wolves weren’t close. Oryn stood there, his gaze wild. Yet mine dipped down his body because I had zero control. Oh, sweet heavens. He was bigger than Nero in the downstairs department! “Hurry. Later you […]

Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: Lera of Lunos by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review The series is now over! Last year, I discovered reverse harem, and one that stood out to me was Alex Lidell’s Power of Five. You can read my reviews of Power of Five, Mistake of Magic, and Trial of Three to see how this series kept delivering just what I wanted! And not just beautiful, colourful covers. Remember when the trials were Lera’s biggest problem? Well, the final trial was nothing in comparison to the real struggle introduced in Trial of Three. There were basically two tense plot scenes: the final trial in the first quarter and the showdown at the end. I honestly had no idea how that final showdown would work out, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out, even though one point was a bit …convenient. (I have questions, m’kay.) You’re probably then wondering what was going on in the middle of those […]

Review & Excerpt: The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Review & Excerpt: The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

The Faerie Queen’s’s review This book was an utter delight. So much so that I did not want to stop reading, even when I had to get off the train to see friends or go to sleep so I could function at work the next day. Because, dear readers, the banter in this book was excellent. Andrew was such a tease at times, the innuendos flowing gloriously. And Poppy kept falling into his little traps, until she was winning points of her own. I was in heaven reading their dialogue. What I loved most about Andrew was that, even though he found Poppy rather annoying at first, he was always a gentleman. But not too much of a gentleman. He could play around with his words, but he always ensured he didn’t take things too far, and that at the end of the day, Poppy was safe and sound and not too unhappy with […]

Review, Excerpt, Playlist, & Giveaway: Feels Like Falling by Elle Keating

The Faerie Queen’s review Well that was a lot more angsty and messed up than I was expecting. Before I get started, this book comes with a massive trigger warning – and I don’t care if this is spoilery because it needs to be – for child abuse and rape. The instances are described and explored in enough detail to (hopefully) make the most sheltered, blessed-with-a-perfect-life reader squirm uncomfortably. That being said, I did enjoy reading this book. Enjoy doesn’t really feel like the right word, actually… I felt compelled to read it is probably more appropriate. Even with all the darker parts bringing things down, I needed to know that Luke and Peyton made it through ok. Luckily, the connection between them was strong, the heat palpable. While a lot of scenes upset me, there were plenty that made me feel uncomfortable…in a good way. A few things did […]

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

The Faerie Queen’s review First thing’s first, this book is clearly dedicated to me. You can read the dedication in the Amazon preview, and there you will find a description of me. Second, this gif basically sums up my expression over and over during this book. Here are just a few of my creepy grin triggers… Being a romance novel, the most important aspect is the relationship between the hero and heroine. Well, this book had me on edge. The chemistry. It was insane. And they didn’t dooooo anythinnnnggggg for ages except stare at each other and have intense silences and sparks and uuuughhhhh. My heart. Every time I thought they’d actually act on the very palpable attraction, they’d Do The Right Thing. Ryker was a damn boy scout, really. Even when he messed up, he was quick to apologise and try to make things right. Aside from The Secret, they were […]
