Playlist & Excerpt: Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder

It’s two for the price of one today! I’ve got a playlist AND an excerpt from Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder! About the book Playlist For every book I write, I create a playlist before I sit down to compose a single word. I listen to the music all the time—in the house, in the car—because it’s my way of keeping the story moving in my head. I use it to connect with my characters – at least who I think they’ll be once I start writing. Here’s the playlist for Meeting His Match. Put Your Hands on Me – Joss Stone After You – Meg Myers Hero – Enrique Iglesias I Want to Be Loved – Etta James Woman – John Lennon I’ll Trust You – Josh Abbott Band Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional Collide – Howie Day The Story – Brandi Carlile The Shoop Shoop Song – Cher […]

Review and Excerpt: The Duke by Katharine Ashe

Review and Excerpt: The Duke by Katharine Ashe

The Faerie Queen’s review Talk about a slow burn. This book made me wait. I’ll admit that I am not the most patient with books, and I did find this really difficult in the middle, but I’m glad I stuck it out because the last 30% was worth it. I don’t really read historical romance, but it’s a very popular subgenre of romance, so I naturally have to try a book every now and then. I find that it can be a bit OTT with the language of the time, and the last one I tried reading for review basically took a bunch of Austen characters, gave them new names, and threw them into a different historical setting. Yes, there are commonalities that are acceptable across the genre, but there should also be originality. And I think that’s why I made it through The Duke when I haven’t been able to with other […]

Excerpt: This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell

Hiya! Today, we’ve got an excerpt of This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell, plus a giveaway for digital versions of the first two books in the Heroes of Fortune Valley series! About the book Excerpt Carly sat on a chair in Stone’s office, streaks of mud on her chin, cheeks and nose. Blond hair wild and unruly. Short dress muddy. Even her sandals had been through the wringer. She looked like she’d been in a fight with a…well, a pig. Which told him two new things about this woman: she did not give up easily, or mind getting a little dirty in the process. Good to know. He wiped mud off her chin with the wet towel Emily had given her and bit his lower lip. “There’s an old saying. If you wrestle with a pig, you’ll get dirty. And the pig will only—” She held up her index finger. “Don’t […]

Review: Blame It on the Bet by L.E. Rico

Review: Blame It on the Bet by L.E. Rico

The Faerie Queen’s review “You’ll get hurt again at some point in your life. We all do. That’s the price of living. But what’s the point of living if you don’t at least try?” Fellow readers, I have been on a heartwarming journey about home, family, and finding out who you are alongside someone who loves that very person. It was full of fuzzies. I can understand why this is an Entangled Bliss story as opposed to one of the other Entangled imprints. The focus of the romance was very warm but not hot, if you know what I mean. The steamier stuff was hinted at, but while Hennessy and Bryan did find each other very attractive, it was their respective personalities and vulnerabilities that drew them to each other. I also loved how there wasn’t any messing about, not really. Hennessy was especially direct, and it was unexpected and […]

Deleted Scene: Between You and Me by Lynn Turner

So not quite an excerpt today… We actually have a deleted scene for you this time from Between You and Me by Lynn Turner! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Deleted scene Christmas Eve Finn removed the large gift box he’d hidden in Emanuela’s closet and set it on the bed in front of her.  He sat at its edge, his obvious anticipation of her opening it almost as great as hers. “Happy Christmas Eve, Emmi.” She smiled and, at his nod, lifted the lid.  “Whoa.” She reached in, carefully lifting the model house from the box.  It was alabaster in color, and the detailing was incredible. She recognized the floor-to-ceiling windows at the south end and gasped, turning it to admire the familiar wrap-around deck.  There were grooves indicating the planks of wood the deck was made […]

Excerpt: The Best Man’s Proposal by Wynter Daniels

Today is the release day of The Best Man’s Proposal by Wynter Daniels, and we’re here to let you try before you buy! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Saying a quick prayer that he didn’t have any nosy neighbors with itchy 911-dialing fingers, she kneeled down and peered under the door. The paper was only an inch or two away. If she could stick something long and thin through the space, she could pull it out. Rifling in her purse, she found a nail file. Perfect. On the first attempt, she missed by a fraction of an inch. She held her breath, ready to give it another try. Out of nowhere, an orange furry paw landed on the note. Before she could grab the paper, a triumphant meow let her know that Grant’s cat had moved it […]

Review: With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright

Review: With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright

The Faerie Queen’s review Uh. So yeah. This one was free in a BookBub email, and I was intrigued… This is the first BDSM erotic romance I’ve ever read. (No, I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey, for several reasons.) I was curious to try it, especially given the description (independent woman tries the lifestyle out for a night for ‘research’ purposes) and the reviews (exposes 50 Shades as terrible). So I went for it. WELL, MY DEARIES. I can tell you two things. It was educational. By contrasting Marcus and Julia’s controlling ex, it showed how BDSM does not automatically equal being abusive (though that’s not to say there aren’t abusive Doms). So much care was put into showing that everything is consensual, and explaining how BDSM can work in various ways for various people, all to their tastes. Safety, consent, and communication were repeatedly brought up. I’ve read […]

Excerpt: After the Fall by Katy Ames

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of After the Fall by Katy Ames! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt “Mr. Donovan. This is Grace Fitzgerald from the Seven Winds Resort,” she shouted through the door, digging out her master key. “Is everything alright, sir?” The only answer was a loud thud. “Sir, I understand you’re having an issue.” Though not one that warranted so much noise, she thought. Steeling herself, Grace continued, “Mr. Donovan, I’m coming in.” Grace swiped her key and pushed open the door, stepping into the luxuriously understated living room of the Seven Winds Villa. Looking around, Grace confirmed that nothing was glaringly wrong, at least not on the main floor. Taking a second glance, Grace registered that the villa’s sole occupant had left a wide array of debris […]

Review and Excerpt: The Baby Project by Miranda Liasson

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m bringing you a review today of an excellent romance (despite a questionable cover style…), plus an excerpt AND a giveaway! Check it all out below! The Faerie Queen’s review Busy doctor meets international journalist in this quick, sexy read from Miranda Liasson. And when I say quick, I mean finished in one sitting in a couple of hours. I couldn’t stop! You know when you’re reading a romance and you just want to scream and huff because you just want them to KISS ALREADY? That was me from about 10% in. It was painful. But that’s a sign of good chemistry, right? The sizzling undercurrent continued throughout the book, growing stronger and stronger, with enough heat to make me want to open a window on this cool, rainy, autumn day in London. If I were a doctor, I’d prescribe this book as an emergency pick-me-up. With […]
