Recently, I picked a whole bunch of independently published author newsletters from a couple of large contests that required it. You might be thinking, “Ew, junk mail. No thanks.” But it is a great way to find new authors and pick up free and discounted books without having to search the internet 🙂 So save yourself some time and money and take the plunge next time you have the opportunity. Anyway, that’s how I found myself offering the author my review and typo hunting services when it was mentioned in a newsletter.
This book is the first in a new series, and the summary really grabbed my attention. A young baker and her friends are trying to live their dream and survive the hardships of adulthood (making this firmly a new adult book) when one stormy night, a flash of lavender lightning reveals an ancient, mysterious castle on a nonexistent hill to our main lady. Then, we are introduced to some fae and a vampire that “live” under a terrible curse. The author does a fantastic job working the older fae into our contemporary world without alienating the readers or taking them out of the story with out-of-date dialogue.
My favorite part of this story was the relationship between Coren and Lucus. The phrase “It’s complicated” assuredly applies here as they try to bridge the gap of centuries, knowledge, and magical bonds. And it all boils down to their story being lustery 🙂
Which perfectly describes this book. Lustery! And I can’t wait for the next book as that ending raised so many questions that I NEED to know the answers to.
What do sexy fae lords, a vampire assassin, and a mysterious castle have in common?
Yeah no, I did not plan this.
When my bestie and I opened a fabulous bakery, I planned to live a long life shoving pumpkin muffins into my face hole and working them off during my self-defense class.
But when a castle full of ridiculously gorgeous immortals showed up on the ley line running through my small town outside Nashville, my life changed.
A lot. Like a lot, a lot.
Because of an ancient curse, the immortals can’t leave the castle without turning to ash. But when the most powerful fae lord uses his seductive power to lure me close, to psychically feed on my aura, he successfully steps out of the castle for the first time.
Now the fae want all of my supposedly special blood to break the curse. Until I can somehow shove the immortals back into whatever magical hole they crawled out of, my life is forfeit.
I have a plan. But said plan didn’t account for the insane feelings I’m starting to have for the alpha of the group…
FAE CURSE is the steamy first book in the Yew Queen Trilogy, and it’s perfect for KF Breene, Laura Thalassa, Annette Marie, Linsey Hall, and CN Crawford fans!
