About the book Excerpt A car came into view and he pushed aside all dreams and worries. Since the make and model of the car matched what he’d seen in a picture sent via text, it meant Paris and Donella had arrived. Exiting the car with their supper in hand, he waited for Paris to park and he met Donella’s gaze through the front windscreen. With her hair pulled back and a smile on her lips, she was bloody beautiful. Donella jumped out and tried to casually stroll over to him. Biting back a smile, he said, “You’re late.” He took in her […]

Excerpt: Dream by Carly Phillips

Excerpt: Dream by Carly Phillips

Hey readers, I am so tired today. I made the mistake of starting to watch Mean Girls last night at 11pm, so I only got a little more than 5 hours of sleep last night. I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Anyway, today I’m excited to share a little piece of Dream by Carly Phillips! This new second-chance romance is releasing on October 16, but preorder links are ready for you. 😉 About the book Excerpt “I didn’t mean to drag you away from Kimberly. You two seemed to be hitting it off.” He didn’t pull his hand away from her face, struck by the tinge of something in her voice. Jealousy? And if so, why did it please him that she cared? “Kimberly was like a leech who wouldn’t let go. She even used her sick brother’s story to hang on to me. I wasn’t doing anything […]

Review & Excerpt: Hot for His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

Review & Excerpt: Hot for His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

The Faerie Queen’s review When I first learned about this book, I knew I needed to Get My Hands On It. A romance between two bloggers? Hell. Yeah. In what universe would I not want to read this??? (And then to learn the author is a mom and blogger, like the heroine? It means this book is going to be authentic af. Well, as authentic as a romance novel can be.) READERS. Nothing prepared me for the perfection that is Reid. As a recently single person considering what I want in my next relationship, I think all future prospects have been ruined by Reid. He’s kind, considerate, intelligent, caring, funny, romantic, hot af… He’s completely accepting of the fact that Andi is a single mom with lots of responsibilities. He can cook – or grill – and well. He’s looking for a real, meaningful relationship. He is a blogger and understands the work that […]

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

The Faerie Queen’s review You can read my review for the first book, Survival of the Richest, here, but below are the main points: The complexity of the relationships between the main characters was incredible. I couldn’t untangle the love triangle. The chemistry between all three was intense. Money was a massively toxic influence in everyone’s lives. Well, dear readers, The Evolution of Man was thankfully great for all the same reasons. I really felt for Harper. In the first book, she lost her father to a sudden heart attack. In this book, she must sit back and watch as her mother succumbs to late-stage cancer, too late for treatment if her mother even wanted it. There is so much pain in this book, and really, the whole book is about her dealing with it in various ways. First and foremost, she seeks out physical distractions from the two men her in love/lust […]

Review: A Nordic King by Karina Halle

Review: A Nordic King by Karina Halle

The Faerie Queen’s review Once again, Karina Halle proves why she’s an autobuy author for me. I have loved every single book I’ve read by her since I was told to read Smut two years ago. Plus, her covers are always beyond sexy and just pop. Right from the start, this was giving me The Sound of Music vibes. A young woman (26) gets a job as a nanny for a grumpy older widower’s (40) children, and she brings life and joy back to the household. There was even (really bad) singing. As a fan of TSOM, I was completely ok with this connection. Of course, there were some differences. For a start, the widower in this case was the king of Denmark, and he didn’t use whistles to communicate with his two daughters. In fact, Aksel loved his girls and was very affectionate with them… when he saw them. And the nanny […]

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Shameless by Cherrie Lynn

Review, First Chapter & Giveaway: Shameless by Cherrie Lynn

The Faerie Queen’s review This is a novella for those of you who want an espresso shot of the brother’s best friend trope. Meredith gets a kick up the backside while on holiday with her brother and friends, including Cam, her brother’s best friend since childhood. After crushing on Cam for a long time, she makes her move, but will Cam be receptive? Because it was so short, I didn’t get too invested in the story. Novellas can be a struggle because there’s not a lot of time to introduce the reader to new characters and develop their relationship. Luckily, for this one, while it did feel a bit rushed at times, I was glad that there was a long history between the two main characters, and that they’d had romantic feelings for each other for a lot of that time. I personally had an issue that others might not. […]

First, find and rescue three marines. Second, make sure his men got out alive. Mission failed. On all accounts. Major Dylan James Sarich closed his eyes tight, trying to erase the memories. But even if he could make the images disappear, he’d never be able to stop hearing his men, good men, scream while being tortured. The smell of burnt flesh lingered in his nostrils. It had been four weeks since he’d woken up in a hospital in Germany, having no idea how he’d gotten there. Now he sat in the back of a small, private jet, donated […]

There’s also a giveaway at the end for a $20 Amazon gift card and digital copies of the book, so don’t forget to scroll all the way down. About the book Excerpt Why did he suddenly have a heartbeat? I purred, and the vampire’s heart started pumping. The panther snapped his head toward the vampire lord and bared his teeth in a half-snarl. I hadn’t been mistaken. The panther heard the vampire’s heartbeat as well and he wasn’t thrilled. The vampire stumbled back, clutching his hand over his heart. An instant later, he realized his own reactions and quickly removed his hand from his muscled chest. His expression became unreadable once again. He stepped toward me aggressively and stopped a foot from my cage. I didn’t back down, […]

Review & Giveaway: In Too Deep by Dani Collins

Review & Giveaway: In Too Deep by Dani Collins

The Faerie Queen’s review What I’ve learned about Dani Collins is that she doesn’t do just fluffy romances. Her love stories may feature elite athletes and wealthy people, and they may have their happy endings, but she does not hold back from dealing with real-life issues. If you read the previous book, From the Top, you will have met the couple starring in In Too Deep: playboy charmer and professional snowboarder Trigg and the new manager Wren, aunt and guardian to Trigg’s daughter, Skylar. I couldn’t imagine how Wren managed to “parent” Sky. At 24, I would not have been able to care for a child full-time, let alone a 12-year-old, and she’d been doing this for years by this point. Just knowing that fact made me believe Wren was strong and brave as hell, and she went on to prove that while she wasn’t perfect, she was trying her hardest to do […]
