From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.
In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman's daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party where she is working.
Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.
Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.
All novels Katy Regnery's ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

EXCERPT
(Excerpt from DON’T SPEAK, a modern fairytale by Katy Regnery. Inspired by “The Little Mermaid.” All rights reserved.)
“Hey!”
   She heard his voice before she saw him.
   Had she known the ultimate cost of that simple glance heavenward, maybe she wouldn’t have stopped. Maybe she would have just kept on walking with her head down. But fate held no warnings for Laire Maiden Cornish.
   Shielding her eyes, she looked up at a deck wrapped around the second floor of the mansion, waiting a moment for her eyes to adjust as he came into view.
   There, in the glittering sunlight . . . a boy.
No, a man.
A young man, a little older than she, tall and muscular, with jet-black hair and a square jaw, dark brown eyes, and a deep tan. He wore a robin’s-egg blue bathing suit with Kelly green palm fronds in a small repeat and a pair of sunglasses buried in his thick hair. In one hand, he held a phone up to his ear, and in the other, he slowly swirled a glass filled with ice and clear liquid. He stared out at the sound, concentrating on his call.
“Hey!” he yelled. “Can you hear me now?” He huffed with annoyance, pulling the phone away from his ear and squinting at it before trying again. “Pete? It’s Erik. Can you hear me?” He set the glass down on the balcony’s wooden railing and gave his phone his full attention. Staring down at it, he muttered, “Shit. No reception.”
It’s Erik.
Erik.
His name is Erik.
Feeling a sharp burn in her lungs, Laire realized she’d been holding her breath and sucked in a huge gulp of air as she stared up at him, frozen in the moment, utterly mesmerized.
She had never seen a more perfect, more handsome person in her entire life.
The sun glinted off his dark hair and wrapped his body in gold, making him appear godlike so very far above her. Were she the type to swoon, Laire imagined she would have been a puddle of goopy longing on the ground below him, content to sacrifice her pride for a glimpse at his beauty.
Don't Speak is part of the ~a modern fairytale~ collection, which includes six standalone, completely unrelated novels inspired by beloved fairy tales:

About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Don't Speak (A Modern Fairytale)Don't Speak by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aww. What a beautiful story this was! I'm a fan of Katy Regnery's style of writing. She has a fantastic way with words and writes wonderfully romantic and emotional stories. This little gem was no exception.

This is the latest instalment in her modern fairytales series. They are all unconnected standalone books. The only link is that they are inspired by fairytales. I love the modern twist she puts on them. They are not retellings but fresh stories in their own right, but very cleverly linked to the story that inspired them. I loved the little mermaid connection in this book. It was excellently done.

This story follows Laire, a simple fisherman's daughter from a simple island. But she dreams of bigger things, sure that her destiny is elsewhere. She meets Erik, a governors son, and they spend an idyllic summer together. Until they forced to part, causing heartbreak and pain.

They meet again some time later and the feeling is still there but the heartbreak is as well. Can they get past that and move on?

This book was an emotional roller coaster. It literally pulled me through the whole gamut of emotion while reading. I laughed, I raged, I was sad, I was happy. This author writes such beautifully three dimensional characters that you can't help falling in love with them and feel everything they are feeling. I loved Erik and Laire from the very start and was praying they'd get the ending they deserved. I was sucked in immediately and loathe to let go when I finished. Is it silly to miss characters in a book? Maybe, lol, but I wasn't ready to let them go.

This was sweet, romantic, angsty and heartbreaking in places but what a fantastic ride it was. I was invested in every minute.

This was a fantastic twist on an age old story and if you love beautiful romance then you'll definitely love this.

I'd definitely recommend this and can't wait to read more from this author.

Release Day Launch - Sweet Rivalry By K. Bromberg


SWEET RIVALRY 
By K. Bromberg 
Release Day: Feb 28, 2017 



Ryder Rodgers had a plan. 

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell. 

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant. 

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this! I've read a few books by this author and really liked them so when I heard about this I was eager to read.

This is a novella and considerably shorter than other books by this author but I didn't find it lacking at all. There was plenty of story and character development. If I had one quibble, and it's not a bad one, is that I didn't want it to end, lol.

This story follows Ryder and Harper. We met Ryder in Sweet Cheeks. You don't need to read that to enjoy this but I think you should anyway because it's great, lol. Ryder and Harper were rivals in college and are brought back together when they are both bidding for the same business deal. There old rivalry comes to the fore, as well as some other sparks as well.

I liked both Ryder and Harper. They're both great characters with plenty of depth for a fairly short book. There attraction was pretty palpable and exciting to read. Their banter was witty and the plot pulled me in.

Like I said, this story does standalone. I enjoyed it from start to finish and would recommend. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: 2/26/17


BLURB

thought I knew what Hell was like.
I thought I had been living it all these years on Earth—abandoned, forgotten, and left with a dangerous secret that not only made me the Se7en’s #1 target, but also turned me into a deadly weapon, a threat to every human in my path.
I was wrong.

In order to survive Lucifer’s plans for me, and his unquenchable thirst for more power, I have to surrender my humanity. I have to lose a part of myself in order to find my way back to him.
Back to the demon who saved me, only to break me.
Back to Legion.  

But even supreme evil has its limits, and the real foes never show their devastatingly beautiful faces.
Forget fire and brimstone. They aren’t shit compared to what’s coming.

Centuries-old bonds will be broken. Unlikely alliances will be forged. And innocent blood will be spilled. Blood that will stain my hands for the rest of my mortal days.

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I was wrong.
Hell is coming.
Hell is just the beginning.

Review Tour - Royally Matched By Emma Chase


ROYALLY MATCHED
By Emma Chase
Release Date: Feb 21, 2017



Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. 
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. 
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Royally Matched (Royally, #2)Royally Matched by Emma Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ooh! I super enjoyed this!

In the immortal words of the Bard 'Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them'. Poor Henry here has well and truly had greatness thrust upon him and it not handling it that well, lol. In typical royal tradition of the heir and the spare, Henry was the spare. His brother wasn't supposed to choose love over duty and he wasn't supposed to be king. Well things don't always turn out as planned and Henry is not ready for this. This is kind of proved by the fact that he signs up to a reality TV show, a royal version of the bachelor. He doesn't expect his interest to spark however in the most unexpected corner. Enter the shy, bookish Sarah.

Henry and Sarah were great. They both had their flaws but I love how they grew through the story. I love how they grew together. Sarah is quiet and shy but also pretty strong underneath and really sweet. She's had some bad stuff in the past and I was rooting for her. I enjoyed learning a softer side to Henry instead of the playboy prince persona that he showed everyone else. He surprised me a little but in a totally good way. I loved both characters and was instantly drawn into their story.

There are many laugh out loud moments in this book, but it was also sweet, emotional and romantic as well. The perfect combination. The humour was slightly more subtle and not quite as in your face as some other books I've read by this author but I enjoyed it a lot and it was very well done. The writing was sharp, the dialogue was excellent and the plot flowed along nicely. I was sucked in and read this in one sitting.

This is the second book in the series but the story does standalone. I would recommend reading the first book though as you'd definitely enjoy if you liked this.

All in all a really enjoyable read that I would definitely recommend.
