Brittney was radiant, a goddess of sunshine and surf who’d just conquered her fear and ridden victoriously toward the shore. She stood on her board until the water leveled out and jumped right into his arms. “That was the most amazing experience I’ve had in a long time.” I can think of a couple of other amazing experiences, he thought to himself, but […]

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: Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole

We’re kicking off August with an excerpt from Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole! The third in her Love Over Duty series, fans of alpha heroes and workplace romance won’t want to miss this hot romantic suspense. About the book Excerpt “Where are you hiding my baby girl?” a large voice boomed from the Caesars Palace hallway. Valentina nodded her head in the direction of the doorway. “You should go find him before he disrupts any of the private tables,” she said with a smile. Amy wandered to the door and found her Stetson-clad father looking into one of the rooms. “I’m right here, Dad,” she said as she hurried to him and hugged him in the hallway. He smelled of leather and cigar smoke. Maybe it was because she’d lost her mother so many years ago, but it was impossible to explain the feeling of safety that washed over her when she was […]

DNF Review: Condemned by Marianne Morea

DNF Review: Condemned by Marianne Morea

The Faerie Queen’s review I was meant to publish this review on release day, but it’s always painful when you’re hopeful about a book and then discover it does not suit you. I was eager to read about vampires who lived through extraordinary historical events, and I liked the idea of an academic struggling to come to terms with the existence of creatures she’s considered legends. The biggest stumbling block from the beginning was how Dominic came across. Instead of a dark, sexy hero, he came across like a wise, old man. Yes, he is wise, and he is old, but when writing vampire heroes, you need to portray them as experienced but still as youthful as the day they “died”. At best, I could see Dominic being like Ned Stark. Instead of a hot vampire romance, Dominic initially came across as creepy old man lusting over a much younger woman. […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Of Ashes and Sin by Ariana Hawkes & K. N. Knight

I know we just shared an excerpt, but this one is completely different. This one is for you Reverse Harem fans, from Of Ashes and Sin by Ariana Hawkes & K. N. Knight! And don’t miss the $30 Amazon gift card giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt The guys went into the pool again after breakfast, their bronzed bodies glistening in the sunlight, but I kept my clothes on and took a walk around the perimeter of the area instead. I was edgy in a way I couldn’t explain. Yes, I was restless, but it wasn’t just that. I looked over at the three of them. Oran was swimming, his muscular back and tight buns showing on the surface of the water, while Zain and Rael were stretched out naked, two perfect specimens of manhood. I laughed hollowly. This would be any woman’s ultimate fantasy. Am I crazy not to just relax […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score by Cat Sebastian

Queen of LGBTQ+ historical fiction Cat Sebastian is back with A Gentleman Never Keeps Score, and we have an excerpt! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Now that he had this stranger in his library, Hartley was having misgivings about the soundness of his plan. First, this man was significantly larger than anyone needed to be. The Hepplewhite chair hardly contained him. Hartley had good reasons for not feeling particularly at ease around large men, but this man didn’t seem threatening. He sat in that chair as if it were a church pew, his hat politely on his lap. Hartley started to lower himself into the matching chair beside his guest, but then thought better of it and perched on the edge of a table, enjoying a false but comforting sense of height. Second, it was unwise to trust […]
