Excerpt: Dark Wish by Yumoyori Wilson

Reverse harem time… We’ve got an excerpt from Dark Wish by Yumoyori Wilson! If you enjoy the taster, this book is available on Kindle Unlimited! About the book Excerpt Oh, hell no. I’m not getting caught up in that. Nope, no dark flames burning me to ash please. Spinning around, I strode forward in the opposite direction. I could feel the stares at the back of my head, but I didn’t give two flying fucks. I went back to my cell, grabbed my dust filled blanket and huddled in the corner. Might as well ride this invasion out in the comfort of my musty, cramped cell. “Did she really just go back to her cell?” A voice questioned, with a sound of amusement. I could hear footsteps approaching as I continued my hiding attempt. I tried to make myself as small as possible as I curled in a ball, tightening the […]

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 […]

Guest Post & Excerpt: Mara Gan, author of Joined, on her writing routine

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Mara Gan, author of Joined! Today, Mara will be talking about her writing routine. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Mara Gan’s writing routine I have a full-time job apart from writing, so I tend to daydream a lot of my stories for a while before I get around to writing them down. But when I write, either for my job or for my life as an author, I make myself a cup of green tea, read a little bit of news on my laptop, and turn on Netflix. I often stray toward Friends or Star Trek: The Next Generation, because I know all the episodes so well that it doesn’t distract me into paying rapt attention, but I like having a little bit of conversation noise in the background. For whatever […]

Playlist & Excerpt: Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder

It’s two for the price of one today! I’ve got a playlist AND an excerpt from Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder! About the book Playlist For every book I write, I create a playlist before I sit down to compose a single word. I listen to the music all the time—in the house, in the car—because it’s my way of keeping the story moving in my head. I use it to connect with my characters – at least who I think they’ll be once I start writing. Here’s the playlist for Meeting His Match. Put Your Hands on Me – Joss Stone After You – Meg Myers Hero – Enrique Iglesias I Want to Be Loved – Etta James Woman – John Lennon I’ll Trust You – Josh Abbott Band Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional Collide – Howie Day The Story – Brandi Carlile The Shoop Shoop Song – Cher […]

Review and Excerpt: The Duke by Katharine Ashe

Review and Excerpt: The Duke by Katharine Ashe

The Faerie Queen’s review Talk about a slow burn. This book made me wait. I’ll admit that I am not the most patient with books, and I did find this really difficult in the middle, but I’m glad I stuck it out because the last 30% was worth it. I don’t really read historical romance, but it’s a very popular subgenre of romance, so I naturally have to try a book every now and then. I find that it can be a bit OTT with the language of the time, and the last one I tried reading for review basically took a bunch of Austen characters, gave them new names, and threw them into a different historical setting. Yes, there are commonalities that are acceptable across the genre, but there should also be originality. And I think that’s why I made it through The Duke when I haven’t been able to with other […]

Excerpt: This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell

Excerpt: This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell

Hiya! Today, we’ve got an excerpt of This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell, plus a giveaway for digital versions of the first two books in the Heroes of Fortune Valley series! About the book Excerpt Carly sat on a chair in Stone’s office, streaks of mud on her chin, cheeks and nose. Blond hair wild and unruly. Short dress muddy. Even her sandals had been through the wringer. She looked like she’d been in a fight with a…well, a pig. Which told him two new things about this woman: she did not give up easily, or mind getting a little dirty in the process. Good to know. He wiped mud off her chin with the wet towel Emily had given her and bit his lower lip. “There’s an old saying. If you wrestle with a pig, you’ll get dirty. And the pig will only—” She held up her index finger. “Don’t […]

Excerpt: Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt I’m not a light sleeper. I never wake up in the middle of the night. Which is exactly why I’m surprised when my body is startled awake out of a peaceful sleep. It’s like I could sense his warm body missing from mine. I’m alone. I sit up on the edge of the sofa hearing nothing but silence. The living room is dark, the television is off, and the only light I can see is faintly coming from under the door of Cash’s bedroom. Could he be awake? I tiptoe down the hallway and push open his door a crack to see him sitting on the edge of his bed, an empty glass […]

Excerpt: Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool! I actually picked up the book earlier today through Kindle Unlimited because I’m a sucker for gruff guys (in books…because I’d give them a slap in real life). First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Life had a way of expunging your expectations. But it also had a way of rebuilding them. I met a hero the day I walked into Klayton’s tattoo shop, broken and terrified. My heart was tattered, and my mental state was a plain of rubble in my skull. He wasn’t your typical hero. But atypical was exactly what I needed. I needed strength to combat my weaknesses. I needed love to fight my terror. And I needed someone to look at me like I was […]

Deleted Scene: Between You and Me by Lynn Turner

So not quite an excerpt today… We actually have a deleted scene for you this time from Between You and Me by Lynn Turner! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Deleted scene Christmas Eve Finn removed the large gift box he’d hidden in Emanuela’s closet and set it on the bed in front of her.  He sat at its edge, his obvious anticipation of her opening it almost as great as hers. “Happy Christmas Eve, Emmi.” She smiled and, at his nod, lifted the lid.  “Whoa.” She reached in, carefully lifting the model house from the box.  It was alabaster in color, and the detailing was incredible. She recognized the floor-to-ceiling windows at the south end and gasped, turning it to admire the familiar wrap-around deck.  There were grooves indicating the planks of wood the deck was made […]
