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

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 romance with no choosing required, look no further! Just beware: Once you enter Roseborne College, there may be no coming back...*
I don't see a series page, so I'm listing them below. -Paige
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.
MFMM Reverse Harem novel with adult themes not recommended for those under 18.
When the Elorsin brothers venture onto our estate in search of a mysterious bird, just in time to catch me on the wrong end of my master’s temper, they somehow also acquire me.
Acquire, kidnap, rescue – is there a difference?
Sure, four of the scariest immortals in existence may actually have saved my life, but blending in as a servant in the Elite training castle that I now call home is almost impossible with these four powerful, dark, and broken men focusing their attention on me - and it’s not always good attention.
Not helped when the trickster among them suggests playing a potion-prank on the psychopath currently in line for the throne. He shouldn’t be in line for the throne. Pax, aka Scary Kidnapper Number One, should be. But whatever or whoever tore this distant world apart, they did so with enough ferocity to leave Pax in a permanent foul mood - and the others aren’t much better.
Either my kidnappers, I mean rescuers, leave me alone - which will mean leaving me to be discovered by a king who has a nasty habit of sucking the life from his servants.
Or they claim me for themselves and protect me from an unstoppable prophecy, a secret slowly decaying the Veil - and each other.
If you’re ever in my shoes, I recommend revenge involving food and the boots of a certain growling alpha male, followed by kicking the nearest dethroned immortal prince in the balls.
⚠ Warning: laugh out loud funny with potential drink snorting. ⚠

They say I’m the danger; they haven’t met my men.
Demon-beasts claim I have a power that threatens their plans of mass destruction. Joke’s on them since I have no idea how to use it. That doesn’t stop them from coming after me, though.
Hot, broody, wolf shifter, Kol and his friend Grim are the only things standing between me and the creatures trying to kill me. They say they’re my best bet to survive. But there’s another who wants me too.
With wild eyes and a warrior’s heart, Helix hunts me relentlessly and says he won’t stop until I belong to him instead.
The elders say I can only pick one as my guardian against the dark forces who want me dead. The thing is, I’ve never been good at following orders. Unfortunately, if I break this rule, I risk destroying the entire world. How am I supposed to follow my heart when the darkness wants to rip it to shreds?
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.
When a sassy and disillusioned phone operator gets a hold of the power of Cupid, watch out!
Love is for suckers.
Love is overrated.
Love makes you vulnerable.
Locke Casey knows all too well about being burned by love. But Cupid’s powers are taking hold whether she likes it or not! Now she's got the feels for the sexy and broody Rane, the mischievous and evasive Mads, and Byron, her college love who broke her heart. Opening her heart to love, and tapping into her Cupid powers-the good, bad and downright ugly-terrifies her. But a girl's gotta do, what a Love God wants her to do...
Battlefield Love is the first in a slow burn series with multiple love interests that will leave you breathless, protective alphas that won’t let you go, and a second chance at love.
Thoughts from Paige
Shoot, 54% through the sample and I'm feeling anxious for our MC. I'm getting a "the call is coming from inside the house" vibe. AHHHH. Love it.
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?
This is book one in a reverse harem series. Recommended for readers over 18.
"I absolutely LOVED this post apocalyptic fantasy!"
"Absolutely loved this book. Snarky, sassy, and sexy Kara saves three fae men from a tower by accident. With her witty banter and snarky attitude Kara takes you on adventure with these three men while trying to control her feelings about them. Hilarious and laugh out loud fun. A must read!"
"I can’t wait to read book two, all the action, adventure, magic, sex, and attitude, it’s amazing!"
