Hello! This month the snark is strong in me. I thought what better way to give us all a few laughs by having a snarky character. Hopefully there will be some books here you haven’t read. If so, maybe a re-read is in order. I know some of us could use a mood lifter. As always, Happy Reading! And stay safe. – Quare Eligere
I’m just a girl trying to survive. Dying? Unexpected. Coming back to life? Even more so. Now these four snarky demons are haunting me. Shirtless.
It turns out you can die and live again. At least I can.
When a night out goes murderously wrong, I chose leaping to my death over getting tortured. Except it turns out I don’t die like everyone else.
I’m a phoenix — or so they tell me. Apparently I need training at the Phoenix Academy.
What I really need is to get rid of the four demons haunting me wherever I go, showing up when my heart is beating fast — whether I’m nervous, afraid, or well… other things.
But I also wouldn’t mind learning how to light things on fire with my mind or take out a man twice my size with my bare hands. All things the instructors at the academy want to teach me… if I can survive long enough.
Because there’s something deadly lurking in these halls, and it’s coming for me next.
Welcome to the first year at Phoenix Academy, a place where the paranormal lives — and dies — and lives again.
This paranormal reverse harem contains mature themes, a few violent scenes, and no choosing. Reader discretion advised.
When a sassy and disillusioned phone operator gets a hold of the power of Cupid, watch out!
A mysterious caller…
Locke Casey is nothing special. Sure, her job as a phone operator job is a little unusual, but it pays the bills, and as a broke, twenty something college student, she doesn’t have much room to be picky. She is used to odd calls from strange men thanks to her job, but when one begins quizzing her about love, she finds her life turned upside down.
An unbelievable turn of events…
Turns out the creepy caller might actually be Cupid. For some unknown reason, the god of love passed on his powers to Locke, which makes no sense considering she’s never been in love and considers the whole concept overrated. Talk about an unlikely candidate!
A mission to save the gods…
Having Cupid’s powers alone might be more than she can handle, but with her godly benefactor doing a disappearing act, all the gods are in a flurry, and it’s up to Locke to save Olympus. All in a day’s work, right?
Battlefield Love is the first in a series, a slow burn reverse harem paranormal romance with sexy, godly avatars and steamy scenes.
In a world where witches hate the Fae, Gabriella has just broken the borders between the races wide open…
Gabriella is a bad witch. Well, she’s not evil, she just sucks at magic, and when she turns eighteen, the unthinkable happens: she grows a pair of wings.
Human born Fae are nothing new. An oddity to be sure, but witch born Fae?
They’re a whole other ball of wax.
When she’s summoned to the Eight Wings Academy at twenty-five, the doo-dah hits the fan as harsh truths are revealed to her about the Fae. But no matter how hard Gabriella tries to flunk, to escape a society forged on lies, she can’t do it.
And it isn’t because she’s a brilliant student, either.
She sucks. Hard.
Something, or someone, is making sure she passes, keeping her at the Academy against her will, ensuring she heads straight into the warrior caste and into a troupe with three other Fae.
Except her troupe?
They just happen to be her Virgo—her fated mates.
And where Virgo are concerned, they have the final say on whether she claims them or not.
She’s FAELING FOR THEM, but can she convince them she’s a good catch? When she knows, point blank, she isn’t…?
Find out in book ONE of the Eight Wings Academy trilogy.
FAELING FOR THEM is a paranormal, omegaverse, Why Choose romance.
My name is Vinna, and I’ve been keeping a lot of secrets.
You would too if you’d experienced some of the weird shit I have: red-eyed monsters chasing me, markings on my body appearing out of nowhere, a strange power that crackles colorfully over my skin from time to time, and don’t get me started on the weapons I can conjure up almost out of nowhere.
Lucky for me, I have yet to meet someone whose ass I couldn’t kick, inside the ring or out. I put that to the test when I run headfirst into a fight that brings all my secrets, and reality as I know it, crashing down around me.
Now, I’m looking for answers and trying to piece together what the hell is going on. Paranormal is my new way of life. It’s not going to be easy, and I’m not exactly welcome.
That is, until I meet the boys, and trust me, they are anything but boyish.
I’m up against elders who think I’m too powerful, a family who views me as a threat, and something lurking in the shadows that’s been coming for me my whole life.
There’s not a chance in hell I’m going down without a fight. I’m not lost anymore, and I’m about to show this world exactly what I can do.
Witty servant meets the brother of Chaos and one prank gone wrong later they’re all in the kind of mess that is unravelling an entire magical kingdom.

- Dual or Multi POV after book one

Too slow burn for me to read, but I hear it’s full of snark.
My name is Ava Dawson. Ever since I was young, I have had this strange “gift” of invisibility. I can’t explain it, nor can I always control it. It affects my work, my personal life, dating—all but my mother and best friend seem to be affected. No matter what I do, I seem to always be forgotten.
Until I meet these gorgeous guys during a girls’ night out, and there’s something strangely alluring about them. An ancient curse brings us together, while a group of supernatural “Collectors” is threatening to tear us apart. They’re targeting people with special abilities like mine, and all four men have taken it upon themselves to protect me. But with their complicated pasts, I can’t help but feel protective of them, too. I’m trying not to get in over my head, with these men, and the magic.
But I have to admit, It’s nice to be seen after years of being invisible.

“Hang on to the edge of your seat. Queen of Gods is a fast-paced story of vampires and druids. This dark, decadent, delish take will keep you up at night, and you won’t regret one minute.” Eliana S. Peters, author of Savory Seduction

I’m not so different from most people.
Like everyone else, I have life goals.
Goal #1: Become a real girl instead of this invisible ghost thing I currently am.
Goal #2: Convince the four men I’ve been haunting for the past five years to pick me to be their new toy after goal one is complete.
Goal #3: Figure out who/what I am and why I can’t remember anything past the five years I’ve been haunting this quad.
Goal #4: Eat popcorn.
See? Perfectly normal. Sort of.
Gotta start small, after all.
It’s not like anyone else is perfect either.
**Dark humor galore
I always thought I was just weird. Or that weird things happened around me. But it turns out coincidence doesn’t exist. Neither does the normal life I thought I knew.
When they come for me, I’m not ready.
It’s a miracle I survive at all.
Not miracle. Magic.
Apparently, that’s a real thing.
And I have it in spades.
Don’t get too excited. Turns out, there’s a lot more to being a light goddess than white gowns and hot werewolf bodyguards.
The rules say I can only choose one guardian to protect me.
Fate has decided to send me two and I can’t imagine sending either of them away.
Not to mention the hot god I can’t stop thinking about.
The thing is, I’ve never been good at following rules.
Gather round close, for I have a secret to tell.
Late at night, while everyone is sleeping, dreaming of white knights and fairytales. I’m making friends with the monsters.
They call to me, like finds like, right? My biggest secret, I’m the scariest monster I know.
I think I’m the bad guy.

Fairy Tales aren’t just for children anymore…
When I was a little girl, my mother told me I was a princess, and that one day, I’d be surrounded by princes. Together, she said, my princes and I would do great things.
But that was before I knew about heartbreak or godawful stepmothers. That was before my entire world became a living hell.
Now, I’m not a kid anymore, and I don’t believe in bullshit like fairy tales and happy ever afters. By day, I attend the University of Freiburg. By night, I stalk the forest, searching for the monsters that stole my mother from me and ruined my life. After all these years, I didn’t really expect to find them. It’s not as if there are witches and charmed cottages and handsome warriors just hiding the Black Forest, am I right?
Yeah, you guessed it. I’m wrong. There’s far more hiding in the shadows than I could have imagined, and nothing will ever be the same again.

One female criminal genius. Three brilliant, passionate detectives who stand in her way. Let the seduction begin…
My family expected me to play sacrificial lamb for their supernatural cult. Through a desperate bargain with a demonic fiend, I escaped—into a criminal underworld that saw me as easy prey.
I’ve proven them wrong a thousand times over. These days, what I want, I get, by whatever means necessary.
Now my fiendish friend is coming to collect its fee: my soul. I don’t intend to pay. Unfortunately, the key to my freedom lies just beyond my reach. To steal it before my time runs out, I’ll need to con the finest investigative minds in London into executing a perilous heist.
Sherlock Holmes. John Watson. Garrett Lestrade. Each at the top of their game; each with a weakness I can exploit. Each so passionate both in the field and between the sheets. I answer to no one and I left my conscience behind years ago, but the more time I spend with them, the more the edges of my steeled heart soften.
We could rule the world if we worked together. But these men will never see the real me as anything but a villain. When the chips are down, I have to betray them—or I’ll lose myself to a greater horror than they could believe exists.

Look away if you want to live…
My life is a giant crap pile with a cherry thrown on top. I’m an immortal woman cursed to kill people with just a glance. And now I’ve been kidnapped by three mouthwateringly sexy gargoyles, who I’m pretty sure want me dead.
But it gets better…
While I’m trying to make the best of being a prisoner, guarded by yummy eye-candy, I’m also being dragged on a dangerous mission. One that throws me right back into a world which has haunted me for far too long. And if history repeats itself, might end in some seriously twisted scenarios.
Things don’t look good for me. But then, that’s not unusual. What is? I think I’m not just risking my life this time, I’m risking my heart. And that’s one thing that even monsters fear.
MEDUSA’S DESTINY is a full-length romance with a sarcastic heroine, three gorgeous gargoyles (who our heroine doesn’t have to choose between), and a tale full of twists and turns. But be ready for a long night of reading, because these gargoyles are stone-hard!
For hundreds of years, Nightmares have ruled the world.
Descended from the Seven Deadly Sins, these supernatural creatures have enslaved and tortured the human race.
I have lived my entire life fighting back against the monsters that have plagued this world. A deadly assassin and a member of the resistance, I only have one motto: kill or be killed.
When The Damning commences – a fight to the death against the world’s most brutal serial killers, assassins, and torturers – a twist of fate finds me as one of the competitors. Despite my initial reluctance, I find myself eagerly participating.
But what I didn’t count on, however, were the seven princes:
Lupe, a Shifter descended from Wrath.
Devlin, a Genie descended from Greed.
Jax, a Vampire descended from Gluttony.
Killian, an Incubus descended from Lust.
Ryland, a Shadow descended from Pride.
Sebastian, a Mage descended from Sloth.
Dair, a Mermaid descended from Envy.
Our love could never be. I’m an assassin, and they are my targets.
But who ever said I needed to follow the rules? If only I can survive The Damning…
This is a medium-burn reverse harem romance. Expect a kick-ass, snarky MC, seven swoon-worthy heroes, and a lot of bloodshed. This is book 1 in a series.
If life really was a fairy tale, Zakara would never be the damsel in distress. She’d be a thief, and Prince Charming wouldn’t have a clue how to steal the heart of the conniving criminal.
Zakara saves not one, but three men locked inside the tallest tower. Her first instinct is to ditch them as soon as possible, but they have one thing that intrigues her more than wealth:
Fae magic once ruled the world, until it disappeared without a trace. Only myths of the magic wielders linger in their destroyed society.
The three prisoners claim to be fae, but she doesn’t trust them.
She doesn’t trust anyone.
Can Prince Ryder convince the pretty thief to lead them to the Hopeless City? Or will she kill him before they even arrive?
Welcome to Dark River. Population 0.
When Mika McKellen woke up in a stormwater drain while backpacking around Canada, she knew that her mother was right. If you made bad choices, you would end up dead in a ditch. But when she stumbled into Dark River, even her mother could never have dreamed up the residents of this small town in the middle of nowhere, Alberta.
Oh, it had all the usual suspects. Quirky diner owners, untrustworthy outcasts and a Sheriff so hot he’d make any red-blooded woman with a heartbeat beg to be in cuffs in the back of his patrol vehicle. No, the really unusual thing about Dark River was that it was entirely populated by the Undead. Vampires to be specific. And so was Mika.
As Mika adjusts to the life of a Vampire, a dark presence stalks her from the shadows. One of the residents of Dark River was her maker and her murderer.
And they were determined to ensure that Mika never rested in peace.
This is a reverse harem romance with a high heat factor.
Three haunted young men. A terrible curse. One girl who could break it… if this place doesn’t break her first.
From the first time my parents decided that getting their next hit mattered more than keeping me fed, I learned I couldn’t trust anyone—until Cade. My foster brother took me under his wing and sheltered me from the worst of the crap thrown at us.
So when he heads off on an exclusive scholarship and everyone around me starts denying he ever existed, Roseborne College has some explaining to do. I’m not leaving until I get answers.
The school I barge into isn’t what I pictured. The staff claim Cade’s never been here. The students glare like just looking at me offends them. The classes involve more torment than teaching, while sobs and howls fill the night. And three very different, unnervingly appealing guys—one of them a teacher—act way too invested in my arrival.
Some unnatural power holds this place in its grip. The more I dig, the more horrors I uncover. Finding Cade might not be my biggest problem after all. It’s looking like none of us, me included, will escape this place alive.
*Academy of the Forgotten is the first book in a gothic paranormal trilogy with shades of Beauty and the Beast. If you love snarky heroines, damaged heroes, dark secrets galore, and reverse harem romance with no choosing required, look no further! Just beware: Once you enter Roseborne College, there may be no coming back…*
Alexis Ravenel: Peasant. Princess. Pawn.
As a peasant, I was forced to work the jewel mines in order to survive. My life was hard, but my worries were few: affording food to eat, and keeping my pet sloth out of harm’s way. But when a chance encounter with a stranger concludes with me obtaining the power of the gods, suddenly my whole world changes.
When the Storm King finds out—and trust me, he always finds out—he plans to make me a princess by marrying me off to one of his four sons. Which doesn’t really seem like too bad of a thing…at first. After all, the Storm Princes are sexy as sin, rich, confident, and built like the very gods themselves.
But nothing is as simple as it seems, and the luxurious life of the Blackwood royals is nothing but a nightmare I cannot wake up from… and neither can the princes. They grew up knowing and resenting this fact, but I had to find out the hard way…
In the Kingdom of Blackwood, we are all just pawns in the Storm King’s wicked game.
TAKEN BY STORM is the first book in the STORMS OF BLACKWOOD series, a fast burn, RH, paranormal romance. 18+
