Ella 1

Readers, Ella Frank’s new book is a Fantasy Romance. It sounds really good.

Ella BookBook Blurb: “Tell me about this place. This…Arcania.”

What if your life as you knew it ceased to exist?

That is the question Naeve Brannigan and her three sisters are faced with on the eve of their 25th birthday.

Continuing a tradition they’ve hidden from their mother for years, the four women arrive at a tarot shop to have their futures told.
Only this time their futures aren’t predicted—they’re forever changed.

They’ve awoken in a strange time and place with no knowledge of how they got there. All they have to go by is the word of a man who claims to be family—a family they’ve never heard of.
He tells them of a world they could never have imagined. One that has been cursed by an Empress fueled by old revenge—revenge their mother appears to be at the center of.

As they fight to survive the people and dangers of an unknown land, they slowly begin to unravel its mysteries to find that they hold the key to saving this world…this Arcania.

The question that remains for each of them is: Who do you become when the you that you always were is no longer?

Why not read this type of romance?

Why not? Is the topic for today. Friend/Blogger/Writer, Nancy over at Rakes, Rogues and Romance got me hooked on reading m/m romances. I thought I would never be into that kind of romance book, but then I really started thinking about why I like them and it hit me like a ton of bricks- The male characters are similar to the men in historicals that I read and love. Now hear me out… The men in historicals are more feminine for a lack of a better word than the men of today. They are all about being gallant and romantic (in the books I read). It’s ok to dance, write poetry, dress in bright colors and fight for the women they have affections for. This is the reason why so many of us read historical romance. The men in m/m romances are not that different from the historical men we love to read about. Their love stories are just as romantic and gallant as the historicals and that is why I have fallen in love with reading them.

I have spent the last couple of weeks finding new authors that write m/m romance and with the help of Nancy, I was able to read a few books that just knocked my socks off. These stories are hot erotic romances. I don’t always read the sex scenes but the romance is spectacular. I encourage you to try this type of romance becuase you are missing out on something so amazing.

17798649TRY (Temptation #1) by Ella Frank: I have read Ms. Franks contemporary romances and have reviewed them. I really enjoyed them but holy hotness TRY was one steamy romance. Logan and Tate are spectacular and I was blown away by the romance these two have for one another. Logan has his own demons that plague his relationships but what he finds in Tate is the courage to overcome them. No question about  Logan is all things a rouge and rake could ever be. I loved this book! Purchase TRY on AMAZON and B&N. Connect with Ella Frank via her website, Facebook and Twitter.

18513700Double Full (A Nice Guy Novel #1) by Kindle Alexander: Sometimes years and distance can’t extinguish a love that is so right but fear can stop you from acting on it. Colt and Jace are two young men that found a strong love and connection in college but when a controlling father steps in they are separated for ten years never knowing what could have been. After ten long years of thinking “what if” they get a second chance but it won’t be easy but when love is strong it can withstand anything. I loved this book and author. I am reading her backlist because of how awesome it is. The romance between Colt and Jace is sweet and pure. Their love story made my heart smile. Purchase DOUBLE FULL on AMAZON and B&N.

Again, I ask, why not read this type of romance? These books are phenomenal when looking at the characters, plot and romance. I look forward to reading more from these authors and more m/m romances. I want to thank them for opening my mind and heart to a new type of romance that I thought I would not understand but I was happily proved wrong.

A big thank you to Nancy for encouraging me to read something new. 🙂

Review: Edible (Exquisite #3) by Ella Frank

Holy buckets of hotness is what you will feel when reading Edible by Ella Frank. You’ll want to read this book by the pool or beach as you will need to cool yourself off….often.

16249388Rachel Langley is a shell of her former self. She has the appearance of a self-confident, talented pastry chef and she is, but she is living with a secret from her past that consumes her. She can’t seem to get passed this dark secret that seems to control part of her. Rachel withdrawals from her family and friends and finds a way to gain control by frequenting a nightclub called Whipped.

Cole Madison exudes power and control. This Viking look alike owns the room when he graces it. He is a man that knows what he wants and always get its. Behind the strong confident man there is a loneliness that he desperately wants to avoid and not pay attention to.

From the moment that Rachel and Cole meet there are sparks. Cole knows that he will have her, while Rachel is determined to be anywhere but near Cole. Though the Gods have something completely different in mind for these two.

Holy smokes- this book was intense! Not only is there tones of sexual chemistry but there is an emotional story behind it. This story isn’t just about intense hot sex scenes but about a story of family, love, loss and truly accepting oneself. Sometimes you can be in crowd full of love, but feel completely alone. Both Cole and Rachel are in need of understanding and acceptance of who they are and why they are who they are. This story has it all; laughter, love, hot sex, sarcasm and a powerful cast. This is the third book in Exquisite series. It can be read as a standalone, but to understand the dynamic on all the characters it is a good idea to start with the first book in the series, Exquisite. OH and you’ll learn a little bit about carmel sauce!

Purchase Edible and other books by Ella Frank on Amazon.
