Today is the launch date of Bad Fairies, a romance set in modern Boston. The author is Alice M. Cole, the pseudonym of a friend of mine. I was fortunate enough to beta read this book for her, and I really enjoyed it. Caveat: Torrid Books, the publisher, does go in for steamy romance, so if you prefer sweet romances that fade to black, you probably want to give it a miss. Otherwise, it’s just $3.99 in various e-reader formats.
Here’s the description:
Someone is killing Boston’s flower fairies, and Cassie is afraid she knows who: her father, the Rose King, disappeared years ago, intending to kill himself. But the spells he cast to entangle and control his court keep him tied to the living. He can’t die until they do.
Cassie would like to turn to Bran O’Meara, formerly a priest and still a bard. In the old days, he was promised to his God and she was promised to another man. Now they have a second chance. But Bran is tied to the Rose King by spells so strong they have kept him from death for many hundreds of years. Will breaking the spell free Bran—or will it mean death for Bran, Cassie, and everyone in their court?
I’m hoping to have Alice stop by this week to do a guest post. Meanwhile, if this sounds interesting to you, please do check it out.
