Review: The Trouble with True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke

Review: The Trouble with True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke

The Faerie Queen’s review I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but contemporary romances have typically been my thing. You see, I adore Jane Austen, and though her books are very tame by today’s standards, they nevertheless have a power over me, one that brings me back time and again for more Darcy. (I love other classics, too, but I am an Austen fangirl.) I had an unfortunate experience with the first historical romance I read, back when I first became a blogger three years ago, and it has coloured my view of the genre. I have, for the most part, avoided it since then. This book was completely unputdownable. I haven’t eaten in 16 hours, aside from a couple pieces of dark chocolate. I managed to pull myself away long enough to get 5 hours of sleep and go to the bathroom when I couldn’t hold it in any longer. […]

Excerpt: For the Sake of His Heir by Joanne Rock

Excerpt: For the Sake of His Heir by Joanne Rock

Today seems like a good day for a snowball fight, and we’ve got just that thanks to this excerpt from For the Sake of His Heir by Joanne Rock! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Brianne was busy scooping up another snowball, scraping red gloves through the foot of accumulation on the wooden deck. She’d traded her wool cape for a red down parka and boots. A gray knit cap was pulled low over her eyes, her ponytail covered with snow and hanging bedraggled over one shoulder. His loafers would be ruined, but he had no intention of leaving the aggression unanswered, especially after he’d heard that laughter of hers. Had she moved on from their earlier disagreement? Or simply found an outlet for her frustration with him? He’d thought dinner would smooth things over between them, […]

Review & Excerpt: Nailed It by Cindi Madsen

Review & Excerpt: Nailed It by Cindi Madsen

The Faerie Queen’s review When I signed up for this tour, I didn’t realise at the time that this was a follow-up to 12 Steps to Mr. Right, one of the first books I reviewed on Love in a time of Feminism. If it had dawned on me then, I would have been even more eager to get started, as I knew while reading Savannah and Linc’s story that there was a little something something going on between Savannah’s brother and best friend. I remember hoping there would be a sequel featuring them, and voila. Cindi Madsen delivered. The chemistry was delicious in this. Home renovation lent itself to numerous innuendos, and Cindi took full advantage. There were plenty of sexy scenes, as well as just funny, banterous ones. (Is that a word?) And while Ivy was battling with her inner relationship demons, Jackson was so sure and stable and wonderful. He gave her […]

Review: The Cowboy’s Rebellious Bride by Laurie LeClair

Review: The Cowboy’s Rebellious Bride by Laurie LeClair

The Faerie Queen’s review This wasn’t a bad book. But it wasn’t a good book either. It was just, on average, a meh book. The plot was a bit of a disaster. People thrown in here and there for the sake of drama without it really making sense for the story. Like Tabitha, Cody’s ex, suddenly showing up out of nowhere, HOURS after a run-in with another ex. And all out of town. What really are the chances of that happening??? Characters also behaved in strange ways, like Hannah’s weird leap of logic towards the end. The plot didn’t flow, and there’s no way around that. The book also seemed really preachy. The most bizarre characters, the Fruit Spinsters (they’re called Clementine and Peach), tried to protect Hannah’s honour by not letting her see Cody alone before the wedding (um, I’m sure Hannah wasn’t a virgin given her previous forays).

Review: Perfect Ten by Kelley R. Martin

Review: Perfect Ten by Kelley R. Martin

The Faerie Queen’s review This was so quick and easy to read! With a charming hero, a feisty heroine, and several sex scenes packed into the 125 pages, it was nice and naughty train read that I really enjoyed. So much so that I gave it 4 stars. That is, until I realised something. This blog is called Love in a time of Feminism, so you’d imagine we’d like ladies with substance round here. On the surface, there is a bit of that; Caroline doesn’t take shit from men, and she’s determined to support her retired mother and student brother. But dig a little deeper, and what do you find? A heroine with conveniently no dreams or aspirations of her own. Not once was what she wants in her future really discussed, aside from where she wants to live. Makes it super convenient for her to give up her life, doesn’t […]

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 […]
