Excerpt & Giveaway: In Too Deep by Dani Collins

The first kiss is such a Big Moment in a romance novel, or any novel with some romance in it. Today, I’m so excited to share the first kiss from In Too Deep by Dani Collins! You may remember I really enjoyed the previous book in the Blue Spruce Lodge series, From the Top, and you can definitely expect a review of this latest release very soon.

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Review & Excerpt: The Billionaire’s Wake-up-call Girl by Annika Martin

The Faerie Queen’s review I read this whilst in a car with my boyfriend, driving down the winding roads of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way (aka the west coast). And boy, did I have fun! This one is (obviously) for those of you who like your billionaire fantasies. In one corner, we’ve got scientist CEO Theo for a hero, consumed with efficiency and scientific breakthroughs, believing there’s no room for fun and personality in the workplace lest they decrease productivity. In the other corner, we have Lizzie, creative bakery owner turned social media coordinator, desperate for an income to help her recover from the financial blow that was dating a conman. Both are stubborn, and both have personal issues in their pasts. My ultimate favourite parts of the book were Lizzie and Theo’s early morning conversations before he discovered her identity. They were sexy, bizarre at times, and laugh-out-loud funny. So funny! My […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
