Review: Arctic Heat (Frozen Hearts #3) by Annabeth Albert

The Faerie Queen’s review Let me kick things off by saying that if any of the following rock your boat, preorder this book immediately: forced proximity, sharing body heat to stay warm, grumpy-sunshine pairing, M/M romance. On the flip side, this book does need a few content warnings for cancer, abusive relationships, grief, negative reactions to coming out, and snow-related accidents, including car crashes. Yeah, there were a few quite scary incidents. In Arctic Heat, we have two rather different personalities. Owen Han is an “aggressively extroverted” reformed businessman tackling a bucket list after facing his mortality. He loves talking to people to the point of craving it, which made spending seven months largely isolated in Alaska an interesting choice for him. On the other hand, Quill is incredibly introverted, wilfully isolating himself with his job. Interactions with people are done when necessary for the job and are quite perfunctory. […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Stand & Deliver by Rhenna Morgan

The Faerie Queen’s review Ugh, I wish I’d read the other books in the series first because I feel like I missed out on a lot of the banter and lead-up to this book! I signed up for the tour because I was intrigued by the idea of a female security specialist butting heads (and bumping other parts) with a very alpha coworker. I could see the potential for steamy banter a mile away! I could completely see where Gia was coming from. In such a stereotypically masculine industry, she felt the constant need to prove herself, not showing any hint of femininity except what was needed for a job. And given the profession, she couldn’t just act like a guy; she had to always be strong and tough, never showing vulnerability for fear it would count against her. If she was going to have a man in her life, […]

Review & Excerpt: Hot Response by Shannon Stacey

Review & Excerpt: Hot Response by Shannon Stacey

  The Faerie Queen’s review What a way to start a book… From the very first scene, I was on Team Gavin. He was so charming and caring and gaaaaah. I wanted him. His cockiness never came across as arrogance; it was just fun and endearing and sexy. He and Cait talked about how he might joke too much, and that sometimes he didn’t know when to quit, but I never saw that. Gavin was basically perfect; flawed, but nicely so. And maybe one of my favourite things about him? He had so much respect for Cait’s professional competency; there’s a scene that I wanted to share but won’t for spoiler reasons, but a man letting a woman take charge is definitely swoonworthy. Another win for Team Beta! And why did he have to have such a great smile? “See, you’re doing it right now.” “Doing what?” “That smile that probably makes […]
