In case you missed my squee of spooky delight these last two years, I've loved both of Hester Fox's gothic historicals. While her debut, The Witch of Willow Hall, leans more into the "what the hell is happening?!" style (with an HEA), her second novel, The Widow of Pale Harbor, has a more prominent romance to go alone with the dead birds and scary happenings. As I get into more of my Spooky Season reading, I'm looking forward to the third gothic from Fox, The Orphan of Cemetery Hill, out September 15.
We are so excited to reveal the cover of Alexandria Bellefleur's debut romance, Written in the Stars, and to share an early excerpt with you.
Did you catch Allie Therin's debut m/m 1920's paranormal romance last year? Because we did. If you read Spellbound, you'll want to get in on this giveaway of the sequel, Starcrossed. And if you didn't, now's a great time to grab that first book! (It's only $1.99 as I'm writing this on 5/5/20.)
My introduction to Robin Talley's books was her most recent, Pulp. Pulp tells the story of a lesbian writing lesbian pulp-fiction in the 1950's and a present-day teen lesbian researching that publishing era and learning about herself in the process. This book broke my heart a few times and also gave me hope for the future. Talley writes queer historical and contemporary fiction, spanning time periods and conflicts, and while not all of it has a true Happily Ever After, she excels at eliciting emotions... even when they're uncomfortable.
Last year Veronica Scott gave Felicia Davin's Edge of Nowhere a glowing recommendation, so when we heard that the second in the Nowhere series was coming out this December? Yeah, we were interested. *eyeballs emoji*
I'm getting ahead of myself, though. First, let's talk about the book! Then we'll show you the cover, and THEN an exclusive excerpt!
Dakota Gray (AKA Melissa Blue) writes some truly excellent filth. In fact, that's the name of the series in which her latest release (out TODAY!) exists. The Filth series started with Perv, which is about a man who lives to go down. The heroes are also pretty darn anti-hero-y, so Dakota Gray wrote a thread about the genesis of this latest book, Adonis Line, and how she wrote it while reading all the #metoo news. We also interviewed her a while back, if you want to read more about her other books!
Remember our review of Love Grind last week? Today is release day, and we're excited to share an excerpt with you!
This Halloween, love bites back… hard.
Chastity Adofo knows a monster when she sees one. As soon as Luke Anthony wanders into her family’s coffee shop, she recognises the evil lurking beneath his charming smile and fantastic arse. The handsome werewolf is determined to have her—but she’s determined to cut out his heart.
Little does she know, Luke’s plans for her are far more pleasurable than murder. And when the full moon rises, all bets are off…
Warning: Mating the Huntress is 30,000 words of red-hot, Halloween-themed romance. This book contains one flirtatious, cursed creature of the night, one badass, knife-happy heroine, and forbidden lust at first sight. Please read responsibly!
