#BoxofBooks: September Edition

#BoxofBooks: September Edition

In every box that FreshFiction sends, there are three main elements. First, there’s books (duh), second, there’s a wee note from the author of the featured book to give us some insight, and third, there’s a bag of tea. As someone who believes all the best reading takes places with beverages – the tea is […]

#BoxOfBooks

There are so, so many book boxes out there these days, but most of them combine “bookish items” with books. What sets the Fresh Fiction box apart is that is almost entirely books. Books from authors you love, and books from authors you haven’t met yet. In the July box, for instance (see above and […]

The Legendary Lord by Valerie ...

<i>The Legendary Lord</i> by Valerie Bowman

Before I get going into my general delight of this book, decide for yourself if being historically accurate is important to you. There are some readers who are yanked right out of a historical romance if the idioms or customs are not time-period appropriate and it ruins everything for them. There are others who either […]

An Unseen Attraction by KJ Cha...

<i>An Unseen Attraction</i> by KJ Charles

If you’re a fan of historical romance that reads less like a romantic comedy and more like a gothic novel, I cannot recommend KJ Charles highly enough. This book is the first in a new series, so is also an good place to get in on the ground floor of an expanding universe. Charles is […]

<i>The Daredevil Snared</i> by Stephanie Laurens

The Daredevil Snared is the third installment in Laurens’ recent quartet about the Frobisher brothers. This installment is about Caleb, the youngest brother, and Katherine, a women enslaved at a mine. The series is not one which can be read out of order, so if this is your first introduction to the Frobishers, turn back […]

Chasing Lady Amelia by Maya Ro...

<i>Chasing Lady Amelia</i> by Maya Rodale

Have you ever wondered what reality TV would look like in Regency England? Like, what would the Kardashians be getting up to and how would they be portrayed? Ever wanted to read a book about a Regency scandal that went a little beyond someone getting caught in an orangerie? Then Chasing Lady Amelia is the book […]

What Happens Under the Mistletoe

<i>What Happens Under the Mistletoe</i> – Various Authors

Christmas books! Christmas books! I love Christmas books! Anthologies are hit or miss for me – short stories can go either way. Sometimes they’re perfectly pint size stories, sometimes they’re poorly paced and only serve to frustrate me that they should have been full length novels. I’m always willing to give one a go (after all, […]

Harlot by Victoria Dahl

<i>Harlot</i> by Victoria Dahl

I am an avid fan of Victoria Dahl. I love her style and her sass and so when she announced on Twitter that she was writing an erotic historical short novel, I marked the release date on my calendar and began avidly checking NetGalley in case it became available. Praise be, y’all. It did. Harlot is […]
