Excerpt: One and Done by Melynda Price

Happy release day to One and Done by Melynda Price! We have an excerpt and a giveaway to get you excited about this new holiday getaway romance! About the book Excerpt “Balen, are you homeless?” His brow arched. Autumn wasn’t sure why he looked so surprised she asked. It wasn’t a very far leap. The writing was on the wall—his friend making that crack about him being a jobless beach bum, him volunteering to spend the week with her…and now here he was, needing a place to say. She wasn’t an idiot. One plus one usually equaled two. Balen studied her until the tension in the room grew stifling. “Is my socioeconomic status an issue for you? You’ve got the spare room and I happen to be in need of one for the next week. I thought… Look, if staying with you is going to be a problem, I can leave.” […]

Excerpt: A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North

Heya! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Melody watched him walk away beneath her damp lashes. She’d never really paid much attention to Daveed before. He’d been one of Heath’s friends and always hanging around the periphery of their group, but had sort of kept to himself. Now, though, he’d come to her aid in her hour of need—or more like day of desperation—and a girl couldn’t ignore such chivalry. As the silence between them grew more awkward by the second, she got up and wandered over to the table, which was covered by papers and post-it notes. Daveed didn’t look up at her at all, so she finally pulled out a chair and sat, forcing a tremulous smile. “What are […]

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

The Faerie Queen’s review This novella was a surprisingly good read! It started out a bit weird, but then I got into it. At 120 pages, it’s very quick, and as you can imagine, things don’t get as developed as they could. I could have actually read a full version of this, but then I also loved how easy it was to get through. I could just enjoy it without getting too bogged down. I was also not feeling too great when I started it, but because it was quick and light, it was a great pick-me-up. The story is told over twelve chapters and swaps narration between Adriana, a “governess”, and Alexander, a duke. Adriana is quite scrappy but very caring underneath it all, while Alexander is your typical brooding hero. After discovering that Adriana isn’t who she says she is, Alexander threatens to throw her out on Christmas […]

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

The Faerie Queen’s review Waaay at the start of this year, I reviewed Some Kind of Magic, starring scientist Eden and down-to-earth rockstar Adam. I was pretty excited when the author reached out and asked if I wanted to read the next book in the series. This time, the focus was on Eden’s musician brother and a photographer looking to make a name for herself. One of the minor niggles I had with the first book was that, despite showing a great relationship, it didn’t have quite enough sizzle for my tastes. I went into book two hoping that, given how much of a flirt Micah is, this book would hit the spot. Our two leads are Jo, a photographer working to make it as a paparazza, and Micah, Eden’s brother and rockstar with a string of casual relationships. Micah showed how he was the less cynical of the two by […]

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 […]

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

The Faerie Queen’s review Nothing like a book to expand your mind past the stereotypes and beliefs you had for another kind of life. That’s one of my favourite things about reading: exploring other people’s lives and trying out new ways of thinking. And that’s what happened in this book. Much like Braden had to face his contempt for TV shows featuring hunting, I had to face my issues with hunting itself. I mean, Bambi, guys. Luckily, this book was written in such a way that I was hooked on the characters and their attraction, enough to distract me from the fact that they enjoyed killing things. But more than that, it showed me that while there are idiots who go around doing it irresponsibly, there are people who go hunting for the challenge, and who don’t do it just to hang up trophies but actually use the animal for […]

Review: 69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer

Review: 69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer

The Faerie Queen’s review If you want pure fluff, ok, you can read this. I mean, I did sort of enjoy the book. But I couldn’t help thinking while reading that there were a lot of other, better books. This was so formulaic and lazy that I’m sure I could have gotten the same romance kick and more elsewhere. Let’s start with the easiest thing. This book was rushed. Yeah, you could say it was a “quick read”, but really, it just wasn’t very developed. Right from the beginning, I felt like only the bare minimum was thrown in to get the plot going. No time was taken to really let us know who the various characters were, what their lives were like, etc. But hey, I very quickly learned about Bossman Cole… Without any scene-setting, the book started with Cole’s assistant quitting because he wouldn’t let her take the weekend off to […]

Review: Breathless by Leigh LaValle

Review: Breathless by Leigh LaValle

The Faerie Queen’s review My my my. That was sexy. I mean, there was plot and character development and all that, but wooow was the chemistry amazing. Leigh kept me wanting more between the characters while giving up a teeny bit of heat here and there so I could never relax. I craved more and more, so I was definitely on the same page as Jake and Hannah. I really liked both characters. Jake was completely swoonworthy, and I loved how he had this rawness to him and could be both assertive as well as respecting Hannah and getting explicit consent. Hannah was super relatable in that while she was a yoga instructor, she defied the stereotype, loving junk food and soda. I could also relate to her need to maintain control over herself and her life. I have the same struggles, especially since my last relationship ended. Also, can I […]
