Chelsea's Review: The Lady and the Thief

The Lady and the Thief by Megan Derr
Publisher: Less Than Three Press, LLC (June 27, 2018)
Series: Deceived, 5
Genre: Fantasy (Historical?) Romance -- Queer, F/F


Adeline has been at the mercy of others her entire life: the aunt and uncle who constantly remind her she should be grateful they took her in after her parents died of a tragic illness. Her guardian in the city who constantly reminds her that she should be grateful they're giving her a coming of age in the city. The suitors who make it clear she should be grateful they're lowering themselves to even consider her.

The only person who's ever made her feel wanted was Lisette, the maid she once fell in love with. The maid who fled in the night with stolen goods, including the pearls that are all Adeline has left of her mother.

Then, while at yet another ball where she feels alone, out of place, and trapped between choosing happiness or doing what’s expected of her, Adeline encounters the beautiful Lady Wisteria—whom Adeline knows better as the maid Lisette…

Whatcha Reading? (August 18th)




This week was crazy for me. (I swear, I have to say that every week, it seems. But it's true. Welcome to my life.) My grandpa, whose health has been slipping even more in the last year, hit a low and went to the ER; they then admitted him to the hospital, where he's been all week. He's doing a bit better, yes, but he'll never be "better". Mostly I'm just hoping they can help to balance all his problems and get things under control again, while maybe also working on increasing his strength with some PT, both in the hospital and after discharge. 


Update: Found out at 10PM (Friday) that his levels went to "possible  heart attack" so they transferred him immediately up to the city hospital, more than an hour away from me. Because of my vision loss, I can't drive and I have no one else around anymore who does. So I'm now stuck down here with no way to get up to him and . . . fuck. I just want life to leave me the hell alone. I'm having flashbacks to my grandma in June (same hospital and all....).


Needless to say, I've not been around much this week. I skipped 2 days of deals, have fallen behind on all other blog work and scheduled posts. I'm trying to remind myself that it's okay, nothing is going to fall apart just because I'm "behind" on blog stuff. But I'm not going to lie: being behind like this only adds to my stress levels. *sigh*


I've been saying it a lot, this week especially, but I'll say it again: thank you, romance community, for being so amazing and supportive. For being there, in my pocket, when I needed you. For offering me your kind words and shoulders to lean on. Thank you for those who shared affiliate links and encouraged others to use them, for those who bought me a Ko-Fi, or gifted me a book to escape into. Thank you.


On with my reading week: I finished 4 books and DNF'ed another at 69% because I just did not give a single fuck about it.

Chelsea's Review: For Real

Remember, since this is a Royal Pick, come back on August 30th for a chance to win an ecopy of your own!



For Real by Alexis Hall
Publisher: Aleixs Hall (March 26, 2018) *re-release*
Series: Spires Universe, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Erotic, BDSM) -- M/M

Dual 1st POV


Laurence Dalziel is worn down and washed up, and for him, the BDSM scene is all played out. Six years on from his last relationship, he’s pushing forty and tired of going through the motions of submission.

Then he meets Toby Finch. Nineteen years old. Fearless, fierce, and vulnerable. Everything Laurie can’t remember being.

Toby doesn’t know who he wants to be or what he wants to do. But he knows, with all the certainty of youth, that he wants Laurie. He wants him on his knees. He wants to make him hurt, he wants to make him beg, he wants to make him fall in love.

The problem is, while Laurie will surrender his body, he won’t surrender his heart. Because Toby is too young, too intense, too easy to hurt. And what they have—no matter how right it feels—can’t last. It can’t mean anything.

It can’t be real.
