About the book Excerpt “Don’t make me cry, you idiot.” She lifted her free hand and swiped the heel of her palm beneath her eye. He chuckled and hooked his arm around her, drew her in and gave her a bear hug that crumpled her defenses. People didn’t usually touch her, which she […]

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 […]

Review & Giveaway: The Right Fit by Daphne Dubois

Review & Giveaway: The Right Fit by Daphne Dubois

The Faerie Queen’s review Hooray for another ice hockey romance! This time featuring a curvy heroine and a hunky French Canadian with Greek roots. Maxine is trying to recover from the discovery of her fiancé’s adultery six months earlier, while Antony is trying to cling onto his position in a Toronto hockey team. After a couple accidental encounters, they get a bit hot and heavy on Maxine’s couch, and Antony finds himself playing better than ever. But wait! Maxine has been lied to before, and Antony doesn’t clue her in on the fact he’s a pro hockey player. Tension! Drama! But oh so much swooniness! I found it immensely satisfying to read about a curvy heroine. And no, she’s not celebrating her curves, but she is thinking of them in a relatable way. When Maxine goes to her favourite vintage store, she chooses clothes she likes with the intention of […]

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: Discovering You by Kate McBrien

Happy Hump Day! How about a little bit of foreplay from Discovering You by Kate McBrien? About the book Excerpt Justin reached for her hand. “Come here.” Lucy took one step forward, and Justin cradled her face, gazing into her eyes. He leaned in slowly and gave her a gentle kiss. His lips were soft and full as they touched hers. It was a tender kiss at first, but soon the kiss deepened. His kiss should have felt new, but instead it felt like coming home to something rooted deep within her. His fingers wound around her hair, pulling her even closer to him. He moaned as Lucy parted her lips, allowing his tongue access inside, exploring her depths. Something detonated inside Lucy as she ran her fingers through his hair. It seemed as if all the anxiety she usually had around men had evaporated. Justin pulled away, his eyes exploring […]

Meet the Cast: Michelle Hazen’s dream cast for Insatiable

Michelle Hazen is back with Insatiable, the next standalone in her Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll series. When a sex addict lead singer falls into friendship with a hard rock diva, he must fight their attraction or risk ruining her life. Fans of rockstar romances will devour this angsty yet heartwarming story about a bad boy who’s a good man. Today, Michelle is here to introduce us to her hero and heroine, and she’s got some pictures to help you picture them! An Insatiable dream cast Jax If I were casting a movie version of Insatiable, I would know immediately who would play Ava. But Jax is much harder since (don’t laugh) most movie stars aren’t hot enough to measure up. However, I did manage to find some pics of a man who could carry off his sharp, masculine beauty and the weight of the shame and uncertainty that follows […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: A Taste of Pleasure by Chloe Blake

The Faerie Queen’s review Who loves food? Who loves Italian food? Because mmmmmmm. This book made me HUNGRY. For food… and for Toni. A Taste of Pleasure describes the way this book started off. Dani and Toni meet at their friends’ wedding, where Dani has done the catering and Toni has provided the wines. They have a night of pleasure – one they both need with their respective recent romantic experiences. Dani was in a weird sexual relationship with her boss, while Toni was just divorced from his wife (and mother of his daughter). The morning after their encounter, Dani sneaks away, not wanting any awkwardness. It’s not until a year later, when Dani’s career has blown up in her face (she catches the boss cheating, big surprise) and she takes a break with her mom in Milan, where she began her career has a chef. In a weird twist of fate, […]

Excerpt: Freed by Carly Phillips

It’s almost Friday, guys. We’re almost there. To get us through one more day, here’s an excerpt from Freed by Carly Phillips! About the book Excerpt “What are you doing?” The first hint of true panic since he’d been found out sliced into her father’s voice. “I’m leaving.” He rushed over, placing a hand on her suitcase. “Juliette, no. We can work this out. I want to make this right.” “You can’t.” The damage was done by withholding information about her family. “Be reasonable before you storm out. You’ve never been away from home alone. Never held a job. What are your plans?” “And whose fault is that? You’ve kept me dependent on you, but now it’s time for me to be an adult. To meet my sisters and live my own life.” She closed her suitcase and zipped it around before turning to face him. “I can promise you, I […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Galaxies and Oceans by N.R. Walker

Two men must face their pasts and open themselves up to love again in Galaxies and Oceans by N.R. Walker, released this week. Enjoy an excerpt to get you going down below, plus enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card! About the book Excerpt Aubrey Patrick had put out two bowls of minestrone-style soup and what looked like home-baked bread. “Do you make your own bread?” I asked. Patrick sat down quietly opposite me. “Only when I make soup.” “Well, this looks incredible.” It really did. Being cold and hungry, it didn’t get any better than homemade soup and bread. I tasted a small spoonful of the soup. “Okay, wow.” He finally smiled and relaxed. “Thanks.” “You’re a really good cook.” “Just for the homely stuff. I’m not much good at that fancy kind of cooking.” “This,” I gestured to the food he’d put on the table, “is better than any […]
