Excerpt: Make Me Want by Katee Robert

You might remember that the Faerie Queen reviewed and thoroughly enjoyed The Bastard’s Bargain, and she’s looking forward to reading more of Katee’s work, starting with Make Me Want. Enjoy an excerpt below, and enter to win one of five digital copies! About the book Excerpt “What the fuck, Lucy?” “Hmm?” “You know exactly what I’m talking about.” He pulled her dress up, though he didn’t need the confirmation. “You come in here with that cock tease of a dress and you aren’t wearing panties.” Jealousy and desire twisted viciously through him. “Were you going to give Aaron a little show?” “Oh, please. Give me a little credit.” She lifted her chin. “I’m proving a point. You, Gideon Novak, don’t get to make my decisions for me. I […]

Review: Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe

Review: Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe

The Faerie Queen’s review I loved this book because it surprised the hell out of me. I didn’t expect to enjoy a book about a male stripper. I didn’t expect to love a self-proclaimed man-whore. I didn’t expect said stripper to throw out so much wisdom about what women deserve, particularly in the sack. I didn’t expect to learn about my own damn anatomy from a book about a male stripper/player. I didn’t expect to question by own prejudices. But, my people, I did. Keane Morgan initially grated on my nerves. He came across as self-important, and his frequent use of terms like “babydoll” made me shudder. Maybe I should have paid more attention to the blurb; Maddie was just as annoyed with Keane at first, but he won us both over, slowly but surely. Well done to Lauren Rowe for making me fall in love with a male stripper […]

Excerpt: Just Say (Hell) No by Rosalind James

Excerpt: Just Say (Hell) No by Rosalind James

Fun fact. The Faerie Queen happens to love rugby, and a recent release happens to cater to that: Just Say (Hell) No by Rosalind James! Enjoy an excerpt from the book, enter the giveaway, and look forward to a review next month as we explore sports romance! About the book Excerpt Nyree knew it was two kilometers to Achilles Point. She didn’t look at her watch to see how long it was taking. The point was, she made it. She puffed her way up the final incline, which felt more like a mountain, tried to tell herself, Gorgeous sea view, and failed. Maybe it was the black spots that were swimming in her vision. She bent over from the waist to haul in a few precious breaths and focused on not being sick. When she stood up again, she saw him. He’d just run the stairs from the beach. She […]

Review: His Outback Nanny by Annie Seaton

Review: His Outback Nanny by Annie Seaton

The Faerie Queen’s review I’m going to need to keep an eye on Annie Seaton, because I really enjoyed His Outback Nanny. I mean, I couldn’t stop. Having read a few nanny-turned-lover stories recently, it seems I have developed a taste for them. And I already know I love a good fake relationship story! His Outback Nanny very much had traditional gender roles at its heart. Ned was The Farmer, strong and hunky, the physical labourer and strategiser. Meanwhile, Jemima took the role of housekeeper, cook, and gardener, plus doing the most work to take care of Ned’s children, though he came in to lavish love on them. (Basically, he wanted to do all of the fun stuff while she handled the messy stuff.) And for their personalities, this division of labour did make sense. I can appreciate that not everyone wants the same kinds of things out of life, and despite […]

Excerpt: Baby on the Bad Boy’s Doorstep by Victoria James

As terrified as the Faerie Queen is of having children, when gorgeous men are paired with adorable infants, something inside her melts. Well, tonight’s little treat for you all is an excerpt from a book that not only has a baby, but a hunky bad boy! Quite literally… Baby on the Bad Boy’s Doorstep by Victoria James! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt “You know that nothing can ever happen between us,” he said, pulling back slightly. Her arm fell and humiliation swept through her, harsh and fierce. “Of course,” she whispered, waving a hand, praying that she’d be able to look and sound convincing. “That would be so stupid. I’m leaving. You’re starting a life here. There’s no way we could work, this would be all wrong. Right?” He stood up abruptly and ran a hand through his hair as he walked across […]

Guest Post: Nicole Sobon, author of Collide, on her journey to publication

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Nicole Sobon, author of Collide, the first in a novella series! Today, Nicole will be talking about the road to release. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Publishing Collide I’d always enjoyed writing and spent most of my teenage years writing songs and poems that I typically only shared with close friends. However, around 2010, I decided to try my hand at writing a book and signed up for NaNoWriMo. To my surprise, I completed the challenge and ended up with a very uneven, and far from finished edition of Capture, the first book in my Lunica City Duet. While I knew I still had plenty of room to grow and was in no way ready to approach publishers, I continued to write each and every day, finishing my second novel – Program 13 […]

Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

The GingerSnap’s review The saying goes that when one door closes, another opens. Applied to romance, it goes: when one book sucks, the next will be amazing. That has absolutely been true for me this week. This book is insanely good. Like, couldn’t-put-it-down stayed-up-way-too-late-reading-it I-want-to-read-it-again kind of good. The story begins with Naledi Smith, an overworked graduate student who suddenly starts receiving what she thinks are spam emails from the African country of Thesolo, claiming that she is, in fact, the future king’s betrothed. She writes these emails off as a nuisance, but Prince Thabiso and his assistant, Thabiso, are not joking about her destiny. When these emails go unnoticed, they both fly to New York to meet Nebi, but hijinks happen and Thabiso ends up impersonating a trust-fund kid from indiscriminate origins who quickly falls in serious love, and lust, with Nebi. But once Nebi knows the truth about her […]

Review: The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand

Review: The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand

The GingerSnap’s review I love chocolate. I love Paris. I read the first book in this series and didn’t hate it. That means I should’ve at least found this book tolerable, right? Wrong, friends, wrong. I hated this book so much that I had to bribe myself with banana bread to actually finish it (“You can only get another slice of banana bread if you get to 75% first”, I told myself). This book tells the story of Jamie (Jamie? Which is her real name? Unsure, since it switches in the book) Corey, who has come to Paris to recover from injuries sustained during her humanitarian work with fair trade cacao farmers, and Dominique Richard, one of Paris’ best chocolatiers and a perpetual grouch who takes an immediate liking to Jame/ie when she sits silently in his cafe for days in a row, sampling and savouring his confections. What makes […]

Excerpt: Love Over Lattes by Diana A. Hicks

How’s everyone’s Sunday going? On this day of rest, get your drink of choice and enjoy an excerpt from Love Over Lattes by Diana A. Hicks! Stick around to the end for the chance to win a signed book and goodie bag (US) or a digital copy of the book (international)! About the book Excerpt The path next to the pool ushered us by the grand staircase and down more steps toward a courtyard. Tucked in the corner was the cottage. I hugged my belly to keep myself from squealing or jumping up and down. It was perfect. And too good to be true. “Why are you doing this?” I asked. “I need to rent the place, and you need a place to stay. I’m doing it for the money.” “Because you obviously need more of that.” “Everyone needs more money. That’s what money does.” He dug his hand in his back […]
