About the Book


ASIN ‏ : ‎ B08GC3WWQF
Publisher ‏ : ‎ Montlake (July 1, 2021)
Publication date ‏ : ‎ July 1, 2021
Language ‏ : ‎ English

From the award-winning author of the Dreamland series comes a new dark romantic fantasy about a young woman finding hope in her powers of destruction.

The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadlior. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.

Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan—and themselves.

Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?

Praise for The Song of Forever Rains

“A spellbinding read…A dark, lyrical fantasy that merges vast worldbuilding with the best of romance tropes.” —Kirkus Reviews

“It’s so easy to lose yourself in Mellow’s evocative and engaging prose. Song of the Forever Rains blends excellent world building, wonderful character dynamics, and slow burn romance. I’m already looking forward to the sequel.” —Charlie N. Holmberg, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

“A story so immersive, it will haunt you long after the last page.” —Staci Hart, bestselling author

Review

Isn’t this book just so pretty? And it’s an amazing read as well! There was such a unique premise and I really enjoyed the start of this new series. And the world building for this one was just enough to give me all I wanted to know while also leaving me wanting more!

What I liked most about this book was that it gave us such a promising start and left me feeling as if there’s still room for the story to continue! Sometimes I feel as if the first book in a series throws everything and anything at you and wraps it all up with a neat little bow that I am left feeling that I don’t need another book. But not this one! I am ready to see what comes next and see all of the characters (especially our side ones) further developed.

I really had high expectations for this book because, I know it’s terrible for me to say this BUT, the cover drew me in so much. And I was extra pleased to find that I enjoyed the book just as much while reading it!

Dakota McDonald swore after “The Great Homecoming Disaster” that she’d never allow her romantic life to be a plot line in her parents’ HGTV show again. But when the restaurant run by the family of her best friend (and secret crush), Leo, is on the line, Dakota might end up eating her own words.

Leo Matsuda dreams of escaping his small town Arizona life and the suffocating demands of working in his family’s restaurant, but the closer he gets to his goal—thanks to the help of his best friend (and secret crush) Dakota—the more reasons there are for him to stay.

Praise for Every Reason We Shouldn’t


“A rich, emotionally layered story…..Wonderful.” ―NPR

“This book is like a warm hug filled with all the things I love. I started smiling from page one and couldn’t put it down.” ―Courtney Milan

“Whether your first ice skating romance was The Cutting Edge or Yuri!!! On Ice, you will absolutely love this book. Full of complicated family relationships, sparkling friendships, and a completely delicious romance, Every Reason We Shouldn’t is an uplifting love song to everyone who’s ever lost their way, and then had the courage to find it again.” ―Lindsay Ribar, author of Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies

“Sure to take the gold.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Readers will enjoy the well-developed characters, witty dialogue, and cringe-worthy romantic fumbles right through to the awfully neat, but very happy ending.” ―School Library Connection

“Compelling… an obvious choice for fans of classic love stories that play out on the ice, but also for readers looking for a nuanced story of self-discovery.” ―Booklist

Review

Ok, my HGTV loving self found this book to have such a cute and unique plot. I mean, it’s one thing to have a story surrounding a reality tv show, but make it HGTV and I’m there! It was a cute and fluffy romance too, which honestly my brain needs right now.

This is one of those books that you can pick up and just enjoy reading. I always want to say that books like these are ones you can read without thinking too much, but I don’t want that to sound bad haha! It’s just a book that I can read for fun and not feel as if I have to go out and change the world when I’m done (I guess THAT’s a better way of putting it!).

I found this book to be one that I read very quickly because it was a story (and romance) I was really intrigued by! And I feel as if the characters were a bit more fleshed out than you typically see in a romance, so I really appreciated that as well!
