Hello Lovlies! This weeks post is a reader request for forbidden romance. This list will include all aspects of the forbidden romance trope, from step-siblings to teachers and whatever else I can find where the characters being together are frowned upon. My TBR is controlled and maintained by a chaos demon named Chet, so he’s probably tickled pink about the following reads.
The following books could be light, dark, comedy, prn, contemporary, et al. Per usual, I will make bold any m/m or f/f that I see in the blurbs for those interested. All blurbs are verbatim from Amazon, and book covers as well. As always, Happy Reading! – Quare Eligere

Her entire life, Harlow has been the cuckoo in another bird’s nest. With an unreliable junkie for a mother and an unknown father, her foster family, the kind, successful, and generous Bostons, are the brightest spot in her life. But even with a foster family like Harlow’s, there are some things money can’t buy- like the ability to fit in with the shallow socialites who act like her lack of pedigree is contagious. Now that she’s finished college and her veterinary degree, Harlow’s life was supposed to take off. She was supposed to get a job and create a life away from the petty drama of the wealthy elite. But when her mother dies and a life-changing secret is revealed, Harlow finds herself flying across the country to face an uncertain future that Kai, Holden, Jaxon, Thomas, Jacinta, Declan, and Oliver are going to make sure she won’t accept. Abandoned Girl is the first in a contemporary, enemies to lovers, reverse harem romance. Please be aware this book is SLOW-BURN. Sex does not happen until book three in this series
Love is more fun when it is Forbidden.
My first kiss happened at a party and the lights were turned off, so I’ll never know who kissed me that night.I just know that no one ever made me feel like my mystery guy, no matter how many I kissed.
That summer, I fell for two hot twin brothers: Chase and Reid.
Everything fell apart when they became my stepbrothers and things between us had to change.
Our friendship ended and was replaced by indifference and distance.
Three years later I’m back in Star Cove and so are Chase and Reid with their two hot and friendly best friends Bryce and Parker.
This is the summer before college and I’m stuck in the past, between my forbidden stepbrothers, the boy I’m dating and a kiss that’s lost forever.
Warning: this book is part of a trilogy and ends in a cliffhanger. This is a story where the heroine won’t have to choose between her different love interests and has hot scenes, swearing and mild violence. Suitable only for readers aged 18+
Mistaken identities, a human in a magical world, and three sexy warlocks. Sounds like the start of a joke, but nope...
It's my life.
After one too many kamikazes on my twenty-first birthday, I've made a few interesting discoveries.
First of all... magic is real.
Secondly... there's a whole supernatural dimension that exists parallel to ours.
Thirdly... I've somehow gotten stuck in that dimension.
There are about a billion things wrong with this picture, including the fact that I don't actually have any magic. Everyone here thinks I do though. They also think I'm a witch named Roxie, the star student at Radcliffe Magical Academy.
Ummm. Nope. Not me. Sorry.
I don't know where the hell the real Roxie is, or how I'm supposed to get back home, but I'm determined to find out.
Unfortunately, I keep getting distracted by three hot-as-hell warlocks I can't seem to avoid. Cross, a snarky bad boy who pushes all my buttons, Theo, an incorrigible flirt with a devastating accent, and Kasian, a teacher's assistant who's totally off limits.
Even though I'm drawn to all three of them, I'm not sure I should trust them.
Because if anybody finds out I don't belong here...
Magic Swap is the first book in the Hidden World Academy series, a fast-burn reverse harem story about a sassy human who's out of her depth and the three men who fall in love with her.
Thoughts from Paige
I LOVE this series. Really cleverly executed, I’ve listened several times. MC is totally fabulous and works her butt off. I felt like I went on the journey with her.
From Book 1: *NOW A COMPLETE SERIES*
My name is Hadley Parker, and today I take control of my life.
Today I start school at Pacific Prep.
This is my new lease on life, and I won’t be wasting it.
I need this, now, more than ever.
I need the education, the promise of a future that I wouldn’t get anywhere else.
These rich kids don’t like me though. When Hawk Davenport decides he doesn’t want me here, his friends back him.
Along with Hawk, Westley Warren, Cam Rutherford, and Mason Hayes rule this school and nobody dares go against them.
They don’t know the real me. I won’t back down.
This is a new adult, dark contemporary romance with four hot guys and one girl. It is intended for 18+ readers. A full list of trigger warnings can be found at the front of the book and include bullying, violent scenes and references to past trauma. This is a completed four book series that can be read on kindle unlimited.
They think I’m half angel and half human. They think I have no magic. They think because I grew up in the human world I’m clueless about what to expect at Seraphim Academy.
I’m not half human, I’m half demon — and this little succubus has come to play.
My brother vanished from Seraphim Academy without a trace, and I’ll do whatever it takes to find him, including infiltrating the school myself.
Even if it means going up against my brother’s best friends, who know something about his disappearance and aren’t talking. They may be angel royalty, but if they think they can intimidate me into leaving the school, they’re wrong.
There’s also the problem of the delicious professor who knows my secret. He’s hiding something too, and I’m going to find out what it is.
But I’ll have to be careful, because if anyone finds out I’m part demon? I won’t just get kicked out of Seraphim Academy — I’ll be dead.
*Seraphim Academy is an angel/demon reverse harem romance with all characters 21+ and plenty of heat!*
The hallowed halls of Arcane Arts Academy are no place for an orphan who peddles illegal potions and lives out of a caravan…and yet here I am.
After my volatile magic nearly killed a bunch of mortals, I thought for sure I’d be carted off to Kalzir prison, but they sent me here instead. Gave me shackles under the guise of mercy for my crimes.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, there are wolf shifters in the woods on campus, secrets hidden in the walls, and a hot teacher who may or may not want me as much as I want him.
But dangerous distractions aside, I’m about to find out that some secrets have claws and if I’m not careful, these ones will swallow me whole.
NOTE: This series was previously published under the same series title of Arcane Arts Academy however, these versions have been altered to include lots of bonus content and all-new chapters from the guys' points of view!

“What a fantastic dark sexy book!” ★★★★★
Magick is real. It’s also highly illegal—not that I’m worried about that.
Sure, I heal faster than most, and I’ve got a sixth sense for brewing tea that can fix just about any problem, but my café isn’t exactly a hotbed of paranormal activity.
At least it wasn’t… until some psycho attacked me and woke up the freaky, forbidden magick inside, earning me a one-way ticket to jail.
Now, a covert magickal university is offering me a deal: my freedom in exchange for help with the Tarot prophecies—cryptic predictions they believe hold the key to stopping a deadly apocalyptic plot.
Predictions only I can decipher.
Because the witch who divined them? She died years ago.
I should know. She was my mother.
Grab your grimoires, girls. Magick school’s officially in session.
All I have to do now is master my crazy powers, decode the doomsday prophecies, outwit a mean-girl coven that puts the psycho in psychic, and survive the temptations of one very naughty professor and three scorching-hot, overprotective mages shadowing my every move.
There's only one problem.
If I’m right about the prophecies?
Survival isn’t in the cards for any of us.
SPELLS OF IRON AND BONE is the first book in the Tarot Academy series, a university-aged academy romance featuring Sarah Piper’s signature blend of Tarot mythology, magick, heart-pounding supernatural suspense, and a badass witch who always gets what she wants, especially when it comes to her men…
