Title: Johara’s Choice

Author: Astrid V.J.

Genre: Fantasy Fairy Retelling

Publication Date: May 26th, 2023

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: 

Locked in a tower with the fear of prophecy holding her parents back, Johara dreams of freedom. However, her time in confinement is spent well, researching the true state of her country. When she realises her father has ignored the importance of ancient ritual, Johara must find a way to break free and avert the gathering catastrophe at the risk of being stamped a heretic, or face the annihilation of her people and their way of life.

Haunted by the horrors of war, Erik has given up hope of ever finding anything truly worth fighting for. With the guilt of his past weighing him down, he’s unable to shake off what has been or move forward to a better future. When a twist of fate allows his path to cross Johara’s, everything changes and he begins to hope there might yet be a chance at happiness. But can he embrace life and the spitfire princess who never does as she’s told, running headlong into danger at every turn? Or will he let that, too, slip through his fingers.

Embark on a magical high-stakes adventure in this standalone retelling of Andersen’s classic fairytale, The Tinderbox.

NOW LIVE!

Award-winning and USA Today Bestselling Author, Astrid V.J. was born in South Africa. She is a trained social anthropologist and certified transformational life coach. She currently resides in Sweden with her husband and their two children. In early childhood, she showed an interest in reading and languages—interests which her family encouraged. Astrid started writing her first novel at age 12 and now writes fantasy in a variety of genres, exploring her passion for cultures and languages. When she isn’t writing, Astrid likes to read, take walks in nature, play silly games with her children, do embroidery, and play music.

Astrid writes transformation fiction: incorporating transformation principles in novels, rather than writing another self-help book. She loves exploring the human capacity for transformation and potential to achieve success in the face of adversity. Astrid is interested in minority group questions, considerations on social standards of beauty and the negative consequences these have, and would like to make the fantasy genre accessible to people of non-white, non-Christian backgrounds. Astrid feels the fantasy genre has become too restrictive with limited representations of race, ethnicity and culture. She seeks to explore other paths on this writing journey, incorporating her background in anthropology and psychology to create engaging experiences, which also provide food for thought on the diverse topics she finds most important. These include: racism, minority rights, cultural diversity, culture change, intolerance, humanity’s environmental impact, the representation of people on the autism spectrum in among the general populace, the human capacity for transformation, and much more.

Blurb

Some women in Wylan had dreamt of this day. Some pined and planned for it their entire lives.

Chosen for the Assemblages of Consorts, Jorah Demir will have the opportunity to vie for the twin crown princes’ affections. Though no one knows which prince will eventually rule, they are two of the most powerful Enchanted in all the kingdom.

Not only is a chance for a crown at stake, but also a small drop of the royal bloodline’s magic. Jorah isn’t interested in either. Both princes are Enchanted, the very type of people responsible for her father’s murder.

From the lowest level of the kingdom and without magic, she is forced to go above the walls of Wylan and into the castle itself. She only has one goal: to avoid the crown princes and not, under any circumstances, form an attachment with either one of them.

Surrounded by Enchanted at every turn, she soon learns not all are as evil as she assumed. And when the king’s magic doesn’t affect her, everything Jorah thought she knew is called into question.

Only a brooding huntsman with a shattered moral compass.
 
A stranger to the kingdom, and an enemy to the crown, Adelaide has two choices— wake herself from this illusion or disappear into the dark winter woods alone.
 
The Black Forest can’t compare to the darkness lurking inside the palace walls.
 
Because the Queen has demanded her fragile heart… But the huntsman wants it for himself.

Cursed Fae Kings Book 3 

A Fairy-tale retelling |Fantasy Romance

By Mona Black

Release Date: November 7

Hosted by DS Book Promotions


Apple, Kobo, Nook – Pre Order

 

 

*Amazon will be available on release

Blurb:

Mina never thought anyone would come rescue her – much less a cursed king of the Fae with no memory of who he is!

 

Locked up in the palace tower, sick and expecting to die, Mina never thought her life would end like this.

A princess with a bright future waiting for her, some prince to sweep her off her feet, marry and find true love.

A small mistake – a walk through a forest where the fairies dance – has put an end to her dreams. She is alone, scared and lonely, put away to avoid the contagion spreading in the palace. She has been forgotten.

Until a handsome man climbs the tower and comes into her room. He says his name is Wolf and that he’s hiding. She couldn’t have guessed that this man climbing is Fae, much less a king – only that he could just as well rescue her or take her life.

Instead, Wolf rescues her and tells her that the only way to reverse the spell and cure her, saving her life, is to cross over to the land of Faerie. He can take her there.

But why can’t Wolf remember who he is and why he’s been stranded in the human world for so long? What is the spell holding his memory prisoner – and can Mina help him in her turn?

She’s falling in love with him, and that’s never a good idea between a human and a cursed Fae…

 

*NOTE: this book is standalone full-length NA romance fantasy novel, featuring mature situations with some dark themes and adult language. The romance is slow burn but leads to steamy scenes. A combination retelling of Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel, laden with forbidden romance, spice and heat. *

Title: A Dowry of Snails and Mud

Author: Brittany Tucker

Release Date: 10 January 2023

Young Adult Medieval Fiction/Royalty Folklore/Fairytale

Blurb

16-year-old, Rhia Caddell, doesn’t know what’s worse-arranged marriages or high finance. 

Now she’s stuck with both when her desperate father agrees to marry her to the oh-so-dainty Prince of Wales in an attempt at royal tax negotiations.

As a farmer, Rhia prefers toiling in the earth over romance.

Life in a fiefdom requires muscle, and what good is a man who can’t outlift her or bring a belligerent steer to the ground?

But now, the pressure has fallen onto her to whoo (or intimidate) her new, royal husband into erasing her village’s debt before the king’s final deadline comes due.

Problem is, the prince has been given the same task-to sway his new wife, the mayor’s daughter, into forking over the gold and finally earning his father’s approval.

For Rhia, losing their new, delicate game would mean turning over the only life and home she’s ever known to the king.

Winning, though, could mean giving up the fragile prince she’s tried so hard, and failed, not to love.

It started with a dare.

It ended with the truth.

All the consequences in-between are what make up this hilarious modern-day risqué retelling of Sleeping Beauty’s Fairy Tale featuring a Greek-God bodybuilder Apollo Galanis and the beautiful bored billionaire but amnestic Tania Taylor.

 

When former Navy SEAL turned physical trainer, Apollo Galanis approaches a beautiful new walk-in guest Talia Taylor intending to welcome her to his gym and offer to ‘spot’ for her. He overhears her on the phone saying, “You double dog dare me?’ Then she guiltily looks over her shoulder and is startled to find him standing right behind her.

 

Consequence #1: Taking a panicked step, she trips over a barbell.

Consequence #2: Flailing as she falls, she loses the grip on her phone and sends it flying.

Consequence #3: She twists to catch it and misses but bangs her head hard on the side of a treadmill.

Consequence #4: Apollo, feeling like a heel for causing her to fall, and with a case of oh-shit-lawsuit-itus, carefully rolls her over. With only a small goose-egg bump over her temple, she smiles up at him, “Well, hello, Mr. Universe.”

Consequence #5: Relieved she’s all right and glad she’s okay, he chuckles and answers, “Hello, Fallin’ Angel.” But then she passes out —cold.

Consequence #6: In the ambulance, she wakes and can’t remember … ANYTHING!
