Meet The Cast: Dark One’s Mistress by Aldrea Alien

Hey! Today, please join us in welcoming the cast of Dark One’s Mistress by Aldrea Alien! But let’s first set the stage, shall we? About the book The Main Cast! Clarabelle Weaver Age: 17 Height: 5’6 Hair: Waist-length and the colour of fresh blood. Eye Colour: Brown Build: Average Status: Apprentice Seamstress / Mistress Background: Clara is the only living child born to Marian and Thomas Weaver. Typical of Everdark residents, she remained under both the care and unpaid employ of her widowed mother when her father’s health failed him. Classically trained in the way of the Goddess and the Great Lord’s Law, she is, at first impression, little different from her peers, if perhaps a bit sharp of tongue. Although training in the same profession, she shows little interest in the task and is prone to bookishness. Great Lord Lucias Age: 25 Height: 5’11 Hair: Black and shoulder-length Eye Colour: Dark […]

Excerpt: My Maker’s Keeper by Tiffany Current

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of My Maker’s Keeper by Tiffany Current! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt My eyes went to the clock. Ten seconds left in the game. As the time ticked down, my shoulders tensed, sensing something so familiar and so close. I stood up, scanning the crowd. When my eyes met hers, I instantly recognized what she was. A vampire. A striking one. She had short, bright pink hair, porcelain skin, and wore a tight jumpsuit under her leather jacket. She didn’t look a day over eighteen, but her face told me she was a vampire not to be messed with. Beside her sat another vampire wearing a similar leather jacket. He was a few years older, with dark, luscious hair and inviting lips. He looked like […]

Review: Dark Desires by Eve Silver

Review: Dark Desires by Eve Silver

The Faerie Queen’s review I read Dark Desires as part of my challenge to read a different subgenre of romance each month, and the first month happened to be gothic romance, just in time for Halloween. I wasn’t entirely sure what “gothic romance” was going in, so I did some reading and basically got “old school mystery with a dark, dangerous, brooding hero”. Apparently, Jane Eyre falls into this category? Yeah, I didn’t know that either. Anyway, I chose Dark Desires for two reasons: It was a fairly recently published gothic romance, and I really wasn’t feeling a desire to read old school stuff. Partly because I wanted steaminess. Don’t judge. Also, it was free on Kindle. Eve was doing the whole ‘make the first book free and they’ll come back to pay for the rest of the series’ trick. It might just work for me… Let’s see! Full disclosure: […]

Guest Post: Sylvie Parizeau, author of Incandescently, on skipping to the end of books

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Sylvie Parizeau, author of Incandescently! Today, Sylvie will be talking about her love for epilogues. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Give Sylvie the happy! Bonjour! As you know by now (spoiler alert if you haven’t read my full bio), I am epilogue obsessive compulsive. And as Éolie once said to Liam in one of their deleted scenes: “Liam, it’s a compulsion. I swear; I start to read fully intending not to skip ahead, but I can’t help it. I need to know how it ends before I can enjoy how the characters get there. I cannot bear anything less than a happy ending. Everyone deserves a happily ever after.” Guilty as charged. I am one of those who read the end… right after Chapter One. So by now, you’re either, gasping, cringing, totally […]

Excerpt: Almost Wrong by Aubrey Parker

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Almost Wrong by Aubrey Parker! If you’re looking for some steamy step-sibling taboo romance, this one is for you. We’ve got two different excerpts, the second of which is pretty explicit, so proceed with caution, and maybe a fan. 😉 First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt The Tame One “I guess we should talk,” Angela says. I’m still wearing my tux shirt and pants, because going into the other room to change when she has nothing to swap seems rude. But at least I’ve ditched the jacket and tie. My sleeves are rolled up. She touches my forearm and gives me a chill I haven’t felt in forever. “About what?” I ask. “About us.” I run a multibillion-dollar empire. I could buy and sell countries. People […]

Excerpt: Girl Within Girl, Unraveling by S.P. Aruna

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Girl Within Girl: Unraveling by S.P. Aruna! First, here’s a bit more about the book! About the book Chapter 1 – KATRINA That morning, April 11, 2016, could very well have been a turning point in my life, the morning I awoke and didn’t know where I was, and even more frightening, who I was. In my bed, I was rising out of a foggy void that separated dreams from drowsy wakefulness, when, in a flash of alarm, I bolted upright to sit up, frantically looking around me. I could almost hear the whirring of the cogs in my head as my mind searched its recesses for the answers. My surroundings slowly focused into a scene of familiarity: my Hemnes six-drawer dresser, my Morvik wardrobe with the full-length mirror, the Gaugin print hanging on the white stucco wall just beside […]
