Review & Excerpt: How to Lose a Fiancé by Stefanie London

The Faerie Queen’s review It’s a weird day when my biggest problem with the book is the cover. And it’s not even a bad cover when you take it as it is. It’s just… the heroine of this book, Sophia, is frequently described as pale, paler than Dion at the very least. So why is this beautiful but very tanned woman on the cover??? Yes, I know that’s a very picky point for me to make, but ugh. Now that my worst criticism is over and done with… I read this book mostly in one sitting. Seriously. I pretty much read it all in one day, aside from the first few percent that I read before sleeping, only getting up for bathroom breaks. I barely ate on Sunday because I didn’t want to stop reading. I had plans for that day! Aspirations! I was going to accomplish things! And yet […]

Audible Escape Recommendations: Rupert Channing’s voice is swoony

Audible Escape Recommendations: Rupert Channing’s voice is swoony

Heyyyy! We’re doing something new since we’re fans of Audible Escape (formerly known as the Audible Romance Package). Audible’s all-you-can-listen buffet of romance is filled with all sorts of delightful gems. Each week, we’re recommending some of our favourite finds! This week, I, the Faerie Queen, need to let you know about two books I binged last week on Audible. The first came to me as a random recommendation from the Audible app, and I could remember seeing it in Goodreads’ sexy covers of the month for September 2018. Once I’d devoured that one, Audible informed me the male narrator, Rupert Channing, had also narrated another book. (Funnily enough, also alongside Erin Mallon, who narrates a ton of romance novels. I now associate her voice with sexytimes basically.) This definitely worked for me, especially in audio form. Fake relationship trope with an Australian billionaire? He can get into my bathtub […]

Review & Excerpt: A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette

Review & Excerpt: A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette

The Faerie Queen’s review Let me start things off by telling you why you shouldn’t read this book. It is absolutely filled with broodiness and talk about how being a parent is the most fulfilling thing ever. So if that really doesn’t vibe with you, you should probably avoid this. On top of that, if you really want to have kids and can’t, this might also be a bit torturous. Now that that’s out of the way, I gotta say that I swooned my way through this story. Well, swooned and lamented being single, but that’s what it’s always like when reading romance these days. All that sweet-talking (and dirty-talking), all those longing looks and banter, all the orgasms. And then you top it off with all the talk about having kids? Some days, I wish I hadn’t decided I might actually want kids after all. I wish I could go […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: He’s a Brute (Tough Love #1) by Chloe Liese

Happy release week to He’s a Brute by Chloe Liese! This one is for those of you who like the alpha male athlete meets fierce female trope. Scroll down for a playlist, a giveaway, and an excerpt certain to get you revved up! (It certainly had me wanting more…) About the book Excerpt Her eyes caught candlelight like gemstones. Jade. Emerald. Glittering dark. She drank her whiskey and hummed while she scanned the menu. We needed to talk, because I’d told myself I wasn’t touching her until I knew more, and I couldn’t go much longer without contact. “I ordered ahead,” I said. “Prix Fixe.” She glanced up at me. “You just ordered without my input? What if I don’t like what you chose?” I shifted in my seat until our knees knocked. Better. “Without your input, yes. But I certainly considered what I thought you’d like.” She stared at […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair

Today, I’m bringing you more of the Hades and Persephone retelling A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair! Enjoy an excerpt to get you excited, then enter the international giveaway at the end! 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 […]

Review: His Peace Her Pleasure by Keke Renee

Review: His Peace Her Pleasure by Keke Renee

The GingerSnap’s review Feminists, do not read this book. I repeat, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. There are so many wonderful books out there. Read one of them instead. Why shouldn’t you read this book? Let us start with a list of all its faults. 1. An emotionally manipulative alpha hero with abusive tendencies. Santiago Garcia, the main male character (I’m not going to call him a hero because he in no way has any heroic tendencies whatsofuckingever), is an asshole. And not just any asshole, but an asshole who thinks that he is the only person who should see, speak to and be around Peaches Ellison, the heroine, because she’s his. Every chapter from his point of view actually made me feel a bit physically ill, because it reminded me that oh yeah, men like this exist. But they shouldn’t exist in romance, unless they’re getting a serious feminist […]

Cover Reveal: A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette

Hubba hubba! The cover I have to share with you today is sexy as sin. Mostly because of the way the light highlights the models’ beautiful bodies. Anyway, there’s more than just the cover to love here. A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette also sounds amazing: a woman hoping for a child is propositioned by her sexy and smart best friend, with two conditions. I need to see how this goes down!

Excerpt & Giveaway: The Honeymooner (Paradise Bay #1) by Melanie Summers

As the April showers really kick in over here in the UK, I am once again dreaming of an escape to somewhere warm and sunny. So it seems only fitting to feature The Honeymooner by Melanie Summers today! I’ve got a funny little excerpt, and there is a killer giveaway at the end. About the book Excerpt “Oh my God…did we…?” I press the sheet to me again, gripping it so tightly, my knuckles turn white. “You don’t remember? It was amazing. The earth moved. And you—you were loud enough that we probably cleared out the entire resort.” He grins at me, then rolls off the bed and starts across the room, giving me a view of his muscly back and behind. Those are some seriously tight shorts. No, Libby! Do not focus on his taut buttocks! You are not that kind of girl. “I’m very sorry, but I’m afraid I […]
