A FAERIE STORY by BARBARA ELSBORG

5 Wonderful stars! (M/M/M)

“Is that what you’re searching for? Happiness? Peace?”
“Aren’t we all?” I want to be needed, loved. That would make me happy, give me peace.

A Faerie Story by Barbara Elsborg is like three stories in one, we say that because the three male characters; Keagan, Aiden and Pascal had such immense stories to tell that it felt so comprehensive it was not just about one man’s journey. It was three journeys which culminated into one epic story. As per usual Barbara Elsborg throws down the gauntlet on how many agonising rounds of pounding your heart can take before it shatters. There is not one single character who doesn’t bring an emotional story to the mix. Rather, each character carries internal or external scars as well as burdens from their past, with one or two more horrific than the other. We cried so many tears.

Combining a story of paranormal and mystical settings with an intense love affair between three men is quite the feat. It felt so real and tangible, it was as if we were there. And oh how we wanted to be. We wanted to gather these three lads up and bring them home.

KISS AN ANGEL by SUSAN ELIZABETH PHILLIPS

5 'I'm absolutely in love with this book' Stars!

"You're such a damned romantic. Sometimes when I see you looking at me, I have the feeling you're not seeing me at all. Instead, you're seeing the way you want me to be."

One of my reading pleasures is revisiting SEP's stories I've read and loved. Imagine when I discovered one I hadn't read before! It was like winning the book lottery. Seriously, these books are like a nice warm hug, they're like coming home and I loved this book so, so much! I loved Daisy, Alex, the circus setting and the circus animals…oh little Tater completely stole my heart!

If you haven't yet experienced the incredible work of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, you really are missing out. I could sit and read an SEP book every day. They're emotional, passionate, sweet, humorous, swoony - well, everything you could want in a romance book! Another winner from one of my all-time fave authors.

SEP has a knack of writing a really good hero. One who makes us work for his affection, for his love, they're as tough as they are soft, as prickly as they are loving…once you scratch beneath the surface, that is. And Alex Markov struck quite the wounded hero who was certainly a bit of an arse, but to see him crack….oh just take my heart and shred it right now!

Daisy Devreaux, what a doll! Sure she could be a bit whimsical, and she had the tendency to lead with her heart - but scatty Daisy was an absolute sweetheart. There was a time I was reading with choked up emotion clutching my heart because Daisy’s hurt was so palpable and I felt it.....I mean I really felt it. So absorbed was I in the moment I didn't even realise the tears were streaming down my cheeks.

BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE (A League of Extraordinary Women #1) by EVIE DUNMORE

"This is not a game to be won."
"Well, it certainly seems like a tremendous defeat to let you go."
'Don't let me go.'

What a wonderfully rich, swoony and interesting debut from Evie Dunmore. We’ve been on a bit of a historical renaissance lately and couldn’t wait to start Bringing Down the Duke. The era and the theme particularly sparked our interest, and the passion we experienced was palpable. 

Ladies, just wait until you experience the passion and chemistry between Sebastian and Annabelle! It's tangible and felt like a living breathing being of its own!
