Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: The Kissing Contract by Amy Andrews

The Faerie Queen’s review Who would have thought bunnies would be so effective at driving a plot and bringing two people together. I sure as hell wasn’t expecting it, and yet here I am, madly in love with Marshall and Gus as a couple, and as individuals. All thanks to a few bunnies doing what they do best on an island without predators. For a book with ONE penetrative sex scene, this was one of the hottest books I’ve read this year. The tension between Marshall and Gus was off the charts. And it shows that shoving it in is not actually necessary for a good time. My lordy. These two. We’re kept waiting for that one scene, but all the build-up was delicious. That being said, I would have still welcomed more. Other people (and rabbits) were going at it a lot more than these two, and that’s completely unfair to them and […]

First Chapter: Handle With Care by Helena Hunting

First Chapter: Handle With Care by Helena Hunting

Have any of you read/listened to a book by Helena Hunting yet? Because you should. I started off a few years ago with Pucked and have just relistened to it on audio before I continue with the rest of the series. (The whole series is available as part of Audible Escape, so you could listen to all six books for free with a one month trial!) But that’s not actually why we’re here. We’re here to get hyped about Helena’s next release, Handle With Care, the fifth book in her Shacking Up series, hitting shelves on August 27th! And if you haven’t read it yet, I’ve got the first little bit of the book right here for you to enjoy. About the book Chapter 1 What have I gotten myself into? Wren I slip onto the empty bar stool beside the lumberjack mountain man who looks like he tried to squeeze himself […]

Review & Excerpt: How to Lose a Fiancé by Stefanie London

Review & Excerpt: How to Lose a Fiancé by Stefanie London

The Faerie Queen’s review It’s a weird day when my biggest problem with the book is the cover. And it’s not even a bad cover when you take it as it is. It’s just… the heroine of this book, Sophia, is frequently described as pale, paler than Dion at the very least. So why is this beautiful but very tanned woman on the cover??? Yes, I know that’s a very picky point for me to make, but ugh. Now that my worst criticism is over and done with… I read this book mostly in one sitting. Seriously. I pretty much read it all in one day, aside from the first few percent that I read before sleeping, only getting up for bathroom breaks. I barely ate on Sunday because I didn’t want to stop reading. I had plans for that day! Aspirations! I was going to accomplish things! And yet […]

Review & Excerpt: A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette

Review & Excerpt: A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette

The Faerie Queen’s review Let me start things off by telling you why you shouldn’t read this book. It is absolutely filled with broodiness and talk about how being a parent is the most fulfilling thing ever. So if that really doesn’t vibe with you, you should probably avoid this. On top of that, if you really want to have kids and can’t, this might also be a bit torturous. Now that that’s out of the way, I gotta say that I swooned my way through this story. Well, swooned and lamented being single, but that’s what it’s always like when reading romance these days. All that sweet-talking (and dirty-talking), all those longing looks and banter, all the orgasms. And then you top it off with all the talk about having kids? Some days, I wish I hadn’t decided I might actually want kids after all. I wish I could go […]

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

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 […]
