Never make a deal with a Fae. You’ll end up on your knees, begging for your life.

Flynn, the cruel bully.
Trent, the thirsty vampire.
And Cole, the dark Fae prince. I hate him most of all.

How am I supposed to kick their asses in the arena and the classroom with all the mysteries and dangers lurking in the stony halls? And why is my sister keeping so many secrets—including the identity of the man she's seeing?They want me out of the academy. They’re beautiful. Devious. Relentless.

I'm worse.
I'm a Winslow witch, and I've got enough fire to burn them all.



Never make a deal with a Fae. You'll end up on your knees...
I didn't listen. I made a deal with the Fae prince that plagues Dark Falls with his sinful presence.

Cole Desirys now thinks he owns me, his psycho best friend hates me, and I loathe myself for the foolish promise I made.
From what I understand, breaking the terms of our agreement could have me killed, shunned, or turned into a slave of some kind. I’m still fuzzy on the details.I feed on the power I have over him.
I don’t care if it makes me wicked too.

It's all fun and games until someone dies.



The Academy has fallen to the enemy.

Cole had to flee to Faerie. His best friend Flynn—my bully and tormentor—holds all the answers. My family secrets are like a noose, slowly tightening around my neck.

To vanquish my demons, I’ll break all the rules. I’ll kneel before my dark prince and infiltrate his world.

Mortals shouldn’t eat Faerie fruits.
Every witch knows the rule.

Can I handle just one bite? Or two? What about a taste of forever?

Book Review for Esme Cahill Fails Spectacularly by Marie Bostwick

 Esme Cahill Fails Spectacularly  by Marie Bostwick

 

Publication May 30, 2023

Genre:  Womens Fiction


Taken from Goodreads:  From the author of The Restoration of Celia Fairchild, comes a novel about the meaning of family and the places we call home. If you love "southern summer" fiction authors like Mary Alice Monroe and Kristy Woodson Harvey you'll love this delicious novel about family, friendship, and finding your true path in life.


Esme Cahill thinks she has failed spectacularly: fired from her New York City publishing job, divorced from her husband, and possessing little more than a broken-down car and a pile of unfinished manuscripts, she drives home to Asheville at the request of her late grandmother, Adele, who had begged her, just before she died, to return to the place she grew up.

There she discovers the once-charming lakeside retreat run by her family is sliding toward financial ruin, so with the help of her grandfather, George; estranged mother, Robyn; and a travelling chef Dawes (maker of the world's best grilled cheese sandwich) they set to work. In the attic, Esme unearths a trove of museum-worthy art quilts, sewn by Adele. Piecing together the inspiration behind them, Esme discovers a forgotten chapter in her family history and her grandmother's untold story, that of a gifted artist who never received her due.

This is an always-emotional, sometimes humorous, very human novel of what it means to be family--the ties that bind us together and the unintentional hurts that can rend us apart. And, along the way, Esme learns that failure can be the first step toward the life you're meant to find.

 

My Thoughts:  Nothing has worked as Esme had hoped, so she heads back to her family lakeside retreat.  There she finds a mother that she is not close to, a grandfather who is struggling, and the retreat that has fallen into disrepair.    She sets herself up to stay for the summer and get everything back in running order.   Of course, things do not go as planned and surprises happen. 

 

I really enjoyed this book. Esme is not a poor me character, she is a character that works hard for what she has and is not afraid to go for what she wants.   I enjoyed watching her work through her life and figure out what was important.  The choices she made were not always easy and often caused her extra work, but they were the choices that she felt good about, most often they were the right choices.   I liked the fact that as the story went on, her life seemed to come together and not always as she thought it would.   


Esme Cahill Hails Spectacularly is a fun book.  I read it pretty quick and enjoyed each page.

Release Blitz for Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson

 

Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson is now live!

 

A jaded single dad. A woman returning to her small-town roots. Neither was prepared for their paths to collide…

I should have known I was in trouble when I backed my old, beat-up truck into the shiny Range Rover.

The driver looked like a gorgeous fallen angel – one who’d been booted right out of paradise for being a giant prick.

Good thing I’ll never have to see him again.

Except when I show up for my new job to teach a little girl how to ride her horse, I find the same icy blue eyes glaring back at me.

Paisley Dae is completely reckless. She’s also the best trainer in this small town. And Evelyn gets the best.

Protecting the little girl is my one focus.

Only the sassy trainer in her cut-offs and cowgirl boots quickly gets under my skin. Distractions are dangerous, but she soon becomes everything I crave.

One reckless night of giving in, and Caleb and I spiral into a web of passion.

But when I begin to unravel the secrets hiding in this place, I find there is more riding on this job than I thought.

Caleb and Evelyn are worth any sacrifice – only Caleb has to decide what he will sacrifice for me…

Cover Reveal for Fighting Fate by Diana Muñoz Stewart

 



Fighting Fate by Diana Muñoz Stewart

(A Spy Makers Guild Novella)
Publication date: June 20th 2023
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Synopsis:

Risking herself to rescue others. No problem. Risking her heart on love? Problem.

Dada
As a Guild operative, I’ve seamlessly taken on dozens of false identities. Going undercover as a nun? No problem. But when my routine mission turns into a hunt for a vicious serial killer, I’m forced to join forces with Sion Bradford. Problem. The sexy, ex-soccer player doesn’t, for one minute, believe I’m a nun. Too many lives are at stake to tell him the truth. So, why am I struggling to keep the faith?

Sean
Learned a lot since leaving sports to go chase down degenerates. Mostly, how to spot a liar. Not that I need that skill when it comes to Dada. The woman’s every shade of hot, knows self-defense, and is a great kisser. Plainly, she’s rubbish at being a nun. Still, joining forces with her to take a killer off the streets is a no-brainer. I’d risk Hell itself to stop this lunatic and keep her safe.

As things heat up between Sean and Dada, their search for a serial killer turns into a deadly cat and mouse game. With time running out, they come face-to-face with the truth about each other and an unexpected and vicious murderer.
