Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Three-Way Split by Elia Winters

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Three-Way Split by Elia Winters

The Faerie Queen’s review I know I’ve gotten into reverse harem this year, which you could argue can be a form of polyamory, I’d say the subgenre is still very much a sensual/sexual fantasy geared towards women who like the idea of multiple men fawning over them. And who can blame them? It is a lovely fantasy! But I seem to have stumbled upon a menage romance that is actually about polyamory, where the two men are not there to worship the woman but actually have a relationship between them. And it helps to know that the author has actual experience with polyamory. Because the end result is a book that’s both red-hot and pretty educational! I think the first big thing to note about Three-Way Split is that the book is very heavy on the sex. I mean, I’m not going to complain because it was really sexy, but this definitely counts […]

He appeared a second later with a bottle in one hand, two lemons in his other. “Tequila.” I snorted out a laugh. “My favourite cocktail mixer. A shot of tequila with a dash of good intentions and you have a cocktail aptly named ‘What the Fuck Have I Done?’.” Stuart laughed as he trudged up the stairs. His towel was long gone; just his tiny scrap of swimwear remained. “Well, two What the Fuck Have I Dones? coming right up.” He sat back beside me and held up the bottle. “What even is […]

Excerpt: Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels

Excerpt: Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels

Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow & Corinne Michaels was released this week, and you can get started with an excerpt right here! When I first learned about this book, I was drawn to it by the prospect of some serious emotions. Two people who are incredibly attracted to each other but don’t think they’re right for the other, thrown together by a shared tragedy? Sounds like a great read, and I’m so excited that it’s available now to see just how hard it hits me in the feels! About the book Excerpt “Ian,” my bartender, Toby, calls with his hand out. “What’s up?” “You have a call.” He pushes the phone toward me. No one calls the club for me other than vendors, and it’s eleven-thirty at night, so whoever it is can wait. “I have to deal with something now, send them to my voicemail.” He shakes his head. […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Unleashed by Bella Jacobs

Happy Monday! Last week, Bella Jacobs released the first book in her Dark Moon Shifters’ series, Unleashed. You guys are in for a treat, as I’ve got an emotional excerpt for you, plus there’s a giveaway with three prizes to win! About the book Excerpt Kite’s breath rushes out, his shoulders sagging with a relief that makes me feel like I’ve done something more important than answer a question. “Good. Keep trusting me, bird girl, and I’m going to show you a whole new world. A world where you can be the powerhouse you are on the inside.” The backs of my eyes begin to sting, but I’m smiling when I say, “There’s no cure, Kite. I might never go back into remission, let alone get better.” He pauses, seeming to debate something silently before he whispers, “But then again, you might.” Before I can assure him that hope is a lost […]

She stood on her board until the water leveled out and jumped right into his arms. “That was the most amazing experience I’ve had in a long time.” I can think of a couple of other amazing experiences, he thought to himself, but […]

Review & Excerpt: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper

Review & Excerpt: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper

The Faerie Queen’s review Here were my reasons for taking an interest in a book about an adult woman falling for the boy next door…who is in high school: It’s so wrong, but that only made me more curious, and books are a safe place to explore ideas like this. I’ve already done the older man thing with Wanting Mr. Cane by Shanora Williams, but the older woman thing seemed even more out there. (Thanks, patriarchy, for making the weird factor uneven on this…) If it did all work without being completely skeevy…how did Leddy manage to pull it off? I needed to know! I’m a sucker for a good boy-next-door trope. I think we should start off with one very important point: when they meet, Kristy is 32, and Ash is 17. BUT!!!!! Nothing happens between them until Ash is 18. And when Kristy guesses Ash’s age as 22ish, he […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Love, Across the Divide by Krystal Ford

Ok. Look. I know the political situation in the US (and the UK, to be honest) is a bit tense. Where Republicans and Democrats could previously mostly get along, there seems to be a bit of a civil war happening now. That’s exactly what Krystal Ford tackles in Love, Across the Divide, and we have an excerpt for you! I’m currently reading it, and it’s getting quite a number of strong emotions out of me, which probably means it’s doing its job. It’s definitely making me think more seriously than other romance novels! About the book Excerpt He turned to her, holding out a bag of corn tortillas. “We are making tacos.” He put her in charge of prepping the toppings, then disappeared into the fridge. When he emerged, his hands were full. “Tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cilantro, avocado, cheese.” She took the ingredients one by one from his hands and set everything in […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole

We’re kicking off August with an excerpt from Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole! The third in her Love Over Duty series, fans of alpha heroes and workplace romance won’t want to miss this hot romantic suspense. About the book Excerpt “Where are you hiding my baby girl?” a large voice boomed from the Caesars Palace hallway. Valentina nodded her head in the direction of the doorway. “You should go find him before he disrupts any of the private tables,” she said with a smile. Amy wandered to the door and found her Stetson-clad father looking into one of the rooms. “I’m right here, Dad,” she said as she hurried to him and hugged him in the hallway. He smelled of leather and cigar smoke. Maybe it was because she’d lost her mother so many years ago, but it was impossible to explain the feeling of safety that washed over her when she was […]

I know we just shared an excerpt, but this one is completely different. This one is for you Reverse Harem fans, from Of Ashes and Sin by Ariana Hawkes & K. N. Knight! And don’t miss the $30 Amazon gift card giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt The guys went into the pool again after breakfast, their bronzed bodies glistening in the sunlight, but I kept my clothes on and took a walk around the perimeter of the area instead. I was edgy in a way I couldn’t explain. Yes, I was restless, but it wasn’t just that. I looked over at the three of them. Oran was swimming, his muscular back and tight buns showing on the surface of the water, while Zain and Rael were stretched out naked, two perfect specimens of manhood. I laughed hollowly. This would be any woman’s ultimate fantasy. Am I crazy not to just relax […]
