About the book Excerpt Persephone sat in the sunlight. She’d chosen her favorite spot at The Coffee House, an outdoor table just out of view of the shop’s window. Shade trees and box gardens teeming with purple aster and pink and white sweet alyssum lined the crowded pedestrian street. A light breeze carried the scent of spring and the honeyed air was mild. This was her season. She should have felt more relaxed. But her eyes drifted to a bunch of narcissus flowers that sat in a slender vase on her table. It was a sparse bouquet, and one flower’s petals were crisp and brown, curling like the fingers of a corpse. The narcissus were the flower […]

About the set Excerpts Hunted “Get undressed,” Oryn broke through my thoughts, letting go of my arm and pulling at my sleeve. “Hey.” I slapped his hand away. “Don’t manhandle me. Understand? And no one is taking my clothes off but me.” And Nero, it seemed. Crap. “Sharlot, this—” “It’s Scarlet.” I rolled my eyes. “Your garments carry your scent and will slow us down. We need a distraction.” My pulse was racing as I looked back, praying the wolves weren’t close. Oryn stood there, his gaze wild. Yet mine dipped down his body because I had zero control. Oh, sweet heavens. He was bigger than Nero in the downstairs department! “Hurry. Later you […]

Excerpt: Royal Service 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 King Phillip Gregory Humbert Alcott knelt beside his favorite vintage Indian motorcycle, grease coating his hands, and wished he could stay there forever. Or better yet, finish fixing it up and then just ride off into the sunset. Unfortunately, the sun’s current angle in the mid-afternoon sky put the kibosh on that plan—not to mention the gaggle of women halfway down the drive, any one of whom he was supposed to marry. Phillip loosened the rear axle nut with a grunt, putting more effort into it than was strictly necessary. A strand of […]

Review: Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge

TheGingerSnap’s review Truth be told, I knew there was basically no way I wasn’t going to like this book. It has all of my catnip: Jane Austen retelling, strong female friendship/sisterly bonds, and lots of scenes of people drinking tea. The book is a retelling of Sense and Sensibility set in modern-day Austin, Texas. Jane Woodward and her sisters Celia and Margot have lived above their quaint tea shop in San Francisco for years, but after their elderly landlord dies, Celia breaks up with her boyfriend of forever, and they’re forced to leave their home, the girls make the move to Austin, Texas. Celia reconnects with a long-lost relation, Ian Vandermeide, who’s more than willing to put the girls up in his property’s casita in Austin while they get back on their feet. When they get to Austin, Jane and Celia realise it’s much harder to find a new space […]
