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 […]

Excerpt: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

Excerpt: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

It’s a new month and therefore a fresh start. To kick of October right, I’ve got an excerpt for you from a faerie book I’m immensely excited for: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy! I can’t wait for October 22nd… Just look at that cover! About the book Excerpt There are so many people in here. Royals and social climbers of the Winter Court, I try to see into the edge of the room, cast in shadows, but the light surrounding me blinds me from it. The applause continues as I make my way onto the stage, in front of the table where the Vasara’s sit, with Cade to the left of his father who is just an older, slightly greying version of Cade, and Rowan to the right by his mother. I curtsy as tradition dictates and hold my submissive position until I am released by King Earon’s words. “Emilia […]

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

The Faerie Queen’s review You can read my review for the first book, Survival of the Richest, here, but below are the main points: The complexity of the relationships between the main characters was incredible. I couldn’t untangle the love triangle. The chemistry between all three was intense. Money was a massively toxic influence in everyone’s lives. Well, dear readers, The Evolution of Man was thankfully great for all the same reasons. I really felt for Harper. In the first book, she lost her father to a sudden heart attack. In this book, she must sit back and watch as her mother succumbs to late-stage cancer, too late for treatment if her mother even wanted it. There is so much pain in this book, and really, the whole book is about her dealing with it in various ways. First and foremost, she seeks out physical distractions from the two men her in love/lust […]

Get started with chapter 1 down below to see if this historical romance is up your street, plus enter to win a paperback copy of Runaway Heiress, the first book in the series! About the book Chapter 1 Bolton, Cornwall, England June 21, 1889 The brisk wind bit Madeleine Atherton’s cheeks as she stepped down from the train. Cornwall might be known for its temperate climate, but it felt more like November than June. At least the rain had stopped—for the moment. The rural station at Bolton was much smaller than Madeleine had remembered. Just a redbrick building that resembled a cottage, with a single wooden bench facing the tracks. The platform was empty. Beyond the station […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Rose in the Highlands by Heather McCollum

About the book Excerpt Black soot scorched upward around the door, the glass windows burst out, the remaining shards like jagged teeth set in a series of open-mouthed screams. Had the captain mistakenly set her castle ablaze? She flattened her hand to her chest and straightened as James came to the door. “The storm is upon us, milady. Best to get you three inside. I will help ye in while Thomas holds the horses.” “Thomas won’t be able to hold the horses by himself if they spook,” Evelyn said, placing her hand in James’s. “We will be fine.” Had he not seen the soot?

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Shameless by Cherrie Lynn

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Shameless by Cherrie Lynn

The Faerie Queen’s review This is a novella for those of you who want an espresso shot of the brother’s best friend trope. Meredith gets a kick up the backside while on holiday with her brother and friends, including Cam, her brother’s best friend since childhood. After crushing on Cam for a long time, she makes her move, but will Cam be receptive? Because it was so short, I didn’t get too invested in the story. Novellas can be a struggle because there’s not a lot of time to introduce the reader to new characters and develop their relationship. Luckily, for this one, while it did feel a bit rushed at times, I was glad that there was a long history between the two main characters, and that they’d had romantic feelings for each other for a lot of that time. I personally had an issue that others might not. […]

I purred, and the vampire’s heart started pumping. The panther snapped his head toward the vampire lord and bared his teeth in a half-snarl. I hadn’t been mistaken. The panther heard the vampire’s heartbeat as well and he wasn’t thrilled. The vampire stumbled back, clutching his hand over his heart. An instant later, he realized his own reactions and quickly removed his hand from his muscled chest. His expression became unreadable once again. He stepped toward me aggressively and stopped a foot from my cage. I didn’t back down, […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: The Elusive Earl by Maddison Michaels

Ever gone on holiday and accidentally become engaged to two men? Yeah…me neither… But that’s what happens to the heroine in The Elusive Earl by Maddison Michaels. Enjoy the prologue below, along with a giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card! About the book Prologue Mendicino, Calabria, Italy—1833 “It was the most glorious treasure the world had ever seen. Gold, silver, rubies, diamonds bigger than a man’s fist, priceless statues and urns, all carried on the backs of the loyal army of the great Visigoth king: plunders and spoils from King Aleric’s successful sacking of Rome.” Isabella Maria Penderley stopped short with a start, hovering just outside the slightly ajar door of her baby daughter’s bedroom. A calm and melodic voice was recounting the tale of the fabled lost treasure. It was the voice of a man she had dreaded ever hearing again. Slowly, she pushed open the door until the […]

I’ve got an excerpt from you, plus the chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card at the end, so start scrolling! About the book Excerpt Zade moved so he stood just slightly in front of me as if protecting me. Odd. Did I need protection from Jase? “Just making sure our little gem doesn’t get herself in trouble.” Zade cocked his head to the side. “Isn’t that what we agreed on?” The tranquility-breathing dragon stood inside the arched doorway, glaring at Zade with a mean scowl—his eyes so dark they almost appeared black. “Yes, but that doesn’t include you seducing her.” “Since when do you meddle in my extracurricular activities?” Zade challenged him, with an edge […]
