Release Day Excerpt & Giveaway: Millionaire B&B by Robin Daniels

Happy Friday! Oh lovelies, I am so excited for it to be Friday. January was a very long, very intense month. I got some reading done, but work fried my brain, so I have no reviews to show for it…yet. But it’s February! And I have a new release to tell you about!!! Today, I’ve got an excerpt from Robin Daniels’ first adult romance! Robin has written a number of sweet and funny YA romances, but she’s venturing into a new domain now. I hope you’ll all join me in welcoming her into the community. Plus, to celebrate the release, there’s a giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card and a signed paperback at the bottom! About the book Excerpt “What’ll it be?” I looked at Miles after grabbing Ethan’s beer and a Diet Coke for myself. “What do you have?” I leaned over and hung on the refrigerator door, […]

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

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 […]

First Chapter & Giveaway: Hush by A.M. Salinger

Happy Hump Day! 😉 And happy release week to Hush by A.M. Salinger! Get started with this steamy novella down below because I’ve got the first chapter for you! Plus, you could win an Amazon gift card and signed paperbacks of the book. About the book Chapter 1 Lana Keele stirred and slowly blinked her eyes open. Searing light filled her vision. She winced and twisted her head, a mumbled curse tumbling past her lips. A wave of dizziness swept over her; her stomach clenched painfully. Lana froze and swallowed the rush of bile shooting up her throat. Hot daggers stabbed at her temples. She moaned softly. It was a moment before she realized she was lying on her front on a bed. She stared blearily at the crisp white pillow in her line of sight before rolling over carefully onto her side. She studied the room she was in with […]

Excerpt: Player by Staci Hart

I’m in the middle of reading Piece of Work starring Rin, and I am loving it. Seriously. I’ll have a review up for you guys soon. In the meantime, the next book in the collection was released a few days ago, and I’m here to tease you with an excerpt, this time featuring Rin’s friend Val! So sit back and enjoy a little piece of Player by Staci Hart. About the book Excerpt The night flew by, time speeding up and sliding past with nothing to mark the hours but his laughter and my smiles and our bodies bouncing around the parquet like we had nothing in the world to do but dance. I had no idea how late it was until “New York, New York” came on with the house lights. Sam hooked me under his arm and guided me out into the chilly fall evening. Like an idiot, I’d come […]

Exiting the car with their supper in hand, he waited for Paris to park and he met Donella’s gaze through the front windscreen. With her hair pulled back and a smile on her lips, she was bloody beautiful. Donella jumped out and tried to casually stroll over to him. Biting back a smile, he said, “You’re late.” He took in her […]

Excerpt: Dream by Carly Phillips

Hey readers, I am so tired today. I made the mistake of starting to watch Mean Girls last night at 11pm, so I only got a little more than 5 hours of sleep last night. I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Anyway, today I’m excited to share a little piece of Dream by Carly Phillips! This new second-chance romance is releasing on October 16, but preorder links are ready for you. 😉 About the book Excerpt “I didn’t mean to drag you away from Kimberly. You two seemed to be hitting it off.” He didn’t pull his hand away from her face, struck by the tinge of something in her voice. Jealousy? And if so, why did it please him that she cared? “Kimberly was like a leech who wouldn’t let go. She even used her sick brother’s story to hang on to me. I wasn’t doing anything […]

Review & Excerpt: Hot for His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

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 […]
