Fairest of the Faire!
Fairest of the Faire by Susabelle Kelmer
There was a time when I loved romance novels, they were all I read. That was a long time ago but in order for me to enjoy one nowadays it has to fit a couple of requirements for me. There must be a plot, must have real romance not insta-love, and preferably must not fall into bed right away. So let me say on these requirements the book knocks it out of the park. I started reading and couldn’t put it down until I was finished.
Constance or Connie is a young widow whose husband was killed in a car accident. If that is not enough tragedy for you he also impregnated someone else and had massive debt. Sadly or however you want to look at Connie had set up for the young women having her husband’s baby to get most of the life insurance money before she was aware of just how deep her financial problems were. To get away from that life she moves to her sister in law place and tries to start over. While there she attends a Renaissance fair and ends up getting a temporary job there. Where she meets the oh so hot Gage Youngblood!
I have to say I really enjoyed the romance; it was slow build up and totally believable. Gage and Constance really date and get to know each other before falling in bed. I know that’s not always a big thing for readers these days but I appreciate when an author puts work into her characters and builds a story that is not only plausible but has you shipping the characters. Even though I haven’t been to a Renaissance Fair in a while I love them and love, love that this the setting for the book. It totally speaks to my inner and outer geekdom! So this novel has romance, mystery, a little bit of thrills, renaissance fairs, and sexy time what more can you really ask for! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend that you go forth and read this!
