Has it been seven days already? Huh! It has been! Nifty. Before I get onto the book faire, I wanted to let you know that Booked for Kidnapping is now available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and Kobo. While Google Play will be getting distribution, books will not be loaded into that system until release day. We’re sorry about that. Google Play doesn’t play nice, and it’s less stressful on the female to only have to deal with it once, when publishing post release.
So, while there isn’t a Google Play preorder, the book will be available at that distributor when it releases.
Accounting for things like taking time off work, here is the female’s primary project schedule for the next few years.
If a series or book you want is not on this list, it is a play project and will be worked on as the female has time and desire. Please don’t ask when it will be happening. The point of the play projects is that they are not on a set schedule, and she is doing them for fun.
In short, these are the books the female thinks will pay the bills or has slotted in to complete an ongoing series. Everything else has been moved to play project territory, and she does not have any ETAs on them.
When one of the play project titles is completed, the preorder will be set up and you’ll find out about it.
2020‘s schedule is already available for preorder, but it boils down to this:
Outfoxed, the Flame Game, Murder Mittens, License to Kill, Wild Wolf. (Wild Wolf releasing in mid January 2021 but being worked on in 2020.)
- Dirty Deeds (January 2021; contains the first completed arc in Doggone Mess. 2022 will have the extended edition of Doggone Mess.)
- Client from Hell (March 2021)
- Catnapped (May 2021)
- Booked for Kidnapping (september 2021)
- Up in Smoke (Outfoxed #2)
- Pirate Magic (magical pirate unicorn pony)
There are no precise dates for anything following Booked for Kidnapping; they’ll be set up for preorder as they are finished.
- Doggone Mess
- #3 of the Booked for series
- Death’s Door (Outfoxed #3/series finale)
- Dual Nature (Duet finale)
- Edge of Midnight (Wolf Hunt #3, Witch & Wolf Finale.)
- On Pointe (Mag Rom Com)
- Lost at Sea (Magical pirate unicorn pony #2)
- #4 Booked for Title
- Something Sekrit (New genre.)
- Dragon Her Heels (Mag Rom Com)
- Flight of the Desert Rose (Magical Unicorn Pirate Pony Finale)
- Booked for Finale (#5)
- Second Client From book (unless the second one is done as a play project sooner, in which case finale.)
So, that’s that. If your favorite book/series isn’t on the list, it’s a play project, and it’ll get done when it gets done. Thank you for your understanding.
Onto the book faire!
As always, please do all of your checks to see if you’ll like the book before buying. We have not read any of today’s titles.
Ritual Island by J.P. Uvalle
Genre: Paranormal Romance
The vacation of a lifetime is about to be cut short…
Blaire and her best friend are eager to cash in on their all-inclusive win and cruise off to Bora Bora for a life-changing vacation.
But nothing on the ship is as it seems.
Something sinister is at play…
…and Blaire may be its next victim.
Surrounded by shifters with insatiable appetites, she’s about to take her chances in the sea itself.
Shifter King Dorian is accustomed to being obeyed and feared–and needing no one.
But when he meets the woman intended as his latest sacrifice, he realizes just who she is…
…and just what it means for his future.
Can Dorian throw away his only chance at love to restore powers that ensure his reign on Ritual Island as its one true king? Or will he follow his heart and risk everything for love with the woman fated to be his mate?
Ritual Island releases on September 25, 2020 and is available for preorder at Amazon. $0.99.
Warnings: 18+ for sexual content. We are not aware of any other warnings with this title.
Our thoughts: According to the cover, this is a smut mountain entry, and while that’s not a bad thing, the female has not ventured onto smut mountain recently. We do like tigers, but we aren’t really all that keen into human sacrifices, so this one sends us mixed signals. The description makes it feel like it might be a little triggery for those who absolutely do not want non-consent material. That wasn’t in the author’s disclaimers for this title, but the description is definitely giving us that vibe.
Non-con/non-consent is not our thing, although we recognize there are many folks who don’t mind it playing around in their fantasy material.
But really? All we can think about is that poor woman’s back must be throbbing. The female looks at that picture and does a full body cringe.
Her spine would snap.
The Elemental Queen by Gina Manis
Genre: Paranormal Romance (Reverse Harem)
Celine has all the power of the elements as she carries each of their children inside her. Her sacrifice is coming to completion, but she doesn’t want them to be born in a world raging in war.
Her only hope is to follow Lee and give him a chance to claim his crown. With Lindon, the guardian, by their side, they will take on the fierce Fire King, together.
The battle begins before they can even arrive. Clearwater is under siege, and Celine will leave two of the elements behind to protect it. The war can only end once the Fire realm has a new king and queen.
The end is near, and kings will fall as new ones are made. Will Lee be taking his crown, or will it be Brier, his brother?
The deal Celine struck with the Elemental Fire takes a hard twist that she doesn’t see coming. With her kingdom, her kings, and a child in jeopardy, Celine will have to choose to let someone go.
There are no guarantees they will all come out alive in this fairy tale because another sacrifice will have to be made.
This book is enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited Library, and as such, is only available at Amazon. $3.99.
Warnings: 18+ due to sexual content. Reverse Harem. We are unaware of any other warnings with this novel.
Our thoughts: The female is smitten with this cover. It is pink. So much pink. If space were not an issue, she would be tempted to get a print copy of this book because the cover is pink.
She wouldn’t read the book because she doesn’t have any interest in reverse harem novels, but the cover is pink and she likes it.
There you have it, folks. Pink is everything, so sayeth the female.
Lost in the Deep End by Jessica Greyson
Genre: Science Fiction Romance with Vampires
Destined to be together…destined to be apart.
I want her. I desire Elizabeth Langdon unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before, and there is nothing I can do about it. I came to Terra (Earth) on a short-term mission, and then I must fulfill my duty to wed my betrothed to keep the peace on my home planet. Except, I feel nothing for my betrothed and I feel everything for Elizabeth. And I can never tell her. If I form the mind link with her to take her as my mate, she’ll know the dark secret I carry within me – the horror of my race. She’d never look at me the same, and that is something I cannot risk.
Warnings: Potentially 18+. We don’t know. This one is a mystery to us. The description says it is a slow-burn romance with increasing levels of steam throughout the series, so we’re going to slap the 18+ warning on it just in case.
This book is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, and as such, it is only available at Amazon. $3.99.
Our thoughts: We’re passing because we don’t like cheat fic. I’ve had to stop a bunch of good series because the main characters display their general lack of loyalties to their partner. Yeah, yeah, betrothals are less than fun, they make for delicious love triangles for those who enjoy that thing, but… the female just doesn’t like cheat fic.
And anytime you give a promise to somebody, even if it’s somebody you don’t like… that was a promise. Of course, if the book opened with the lead character breaking off the betrothal because s/he realizes s/he/it is in love with someone else… that’s okay. There’s no going behind the other person’s back.
The premise/description of this one gives the vibe the male lead is betraying his betrothed, and so… nah. We’re out.
Yeah. The female hates this trope with a bloody passion.
She’s going to her corner and muttering for some reason.
So, yeah. That’s just what turned her off on this one. The cover is really nice, though. Female likes it a lot.
This just is not her cup of tea.
We hope you’ve found at least one book that has captured your interest! Tomorrow, the female will be double checking to make sure she didn’t miss anyone in the faire, but unless she finds a hidden trove somewhere, that’s it! <3
Love, love, love the thought of “Play Projects”, knowing there will be a new book when you are done playing.
Your schedule promises us lots of new reading in the next few years.
I am seriously intrigued about the Magical Pirate Unicorn Pony series you have going on up in the notes. Every time I read that phase I ended up smiling and than giggling.
I so would like to know more about that upcoming project. If they are unicorns and pirates do they have extra swords or do they use the horn on the forehead for defense? I have now started down the slippery slope of crazy thinking. Thank you for that.
