Lady Primlore Presents

In Hana’s opinion, matches as a business venture is the dog’s bollocks.

Orphaned and newly homeless, Hana faces a night in a snow-laden alley, with nothing but her ratty cloak to cover her. Until the casual strike of a match opens a door to the fae realm of lords and ladies—though Hana is mostly interested in that fat roast duck on their banquet table.

Except Fred—her rival match seller—has accidentally travelled through the fire with her, and he doesn’t trust the fae one bit. Especially when the fae queen sets Hana to visiting realm upon realm, searching for shiny, pretty things to add to her enormous collection.

And Fred is determined to take care of Hana, no matter how much she swears at him.

Can Hana leave her rags behind forever and find a luxurious home with the gold-obsessed fae? Or does the annoying match boy with patches on his elbows have more to offer?

How to Train Your Goblin King

Erin Vere

Floss is most definitely NOT marrying the Goblin King, even if it saves her a trip through the labyrinth.

Floss, an aspiring law student, has enough troubles to ruffle anyone’s bustle. Her school of choice won’t let her in because of her gender, her equal rights league is hopelessly ineffective, and there aren’t enough calming tonics in the world to stave off her panic attacks.

Now her niece is missing, the roguish Goblin King keeps proposing, and sinister forces threaten Floss’s city. She’ll have to brave a dangerous labyrinth and question everything she believes in to save not only her family, but an entire kingdom down below.

If only the Goblin King wasn’t quite so distracting, she might actually be able to do it.

If you like sensible heroines, ridiculously handsome heroes, fantasy creatures, and dreadful puns, you’ll love this romantic gaslamp romp by Erin Vere.

Grab How to Train Your Goblin King, the first standalone in a series of hilarious fairy tale retellings.
