We are heading into the Fall. Who are my Pumpkin Spice everything lovers? Sadly, like most us, we didn’t get any family vacation this year. Facebook was happy to let me know how much suckier my summer was this year. While I am a huge lover of Fall colors, usually I am not happy to see the summer go (I am not a fan of snow) but at this point I am done with gardening and am ready to put my shovel away and to start some indoor projects.
One thing I missed this year, besides the beach, was the NY Renaissance Faire. We usually take a trip over and we constantly check the weekend weather for a perfect day. We enjoy the shows and the shopping. Our house is filled with quirky treasures from the artists. So this year, I was happy to have a copy of Well Played which is Book 2 of the Well Met series by Jen Deluca. This series features the local small town Renaissance Faire. Reading all the goings on is as close as we will get this year but I was excited to have this “virtual” trip.
So, of course, we must have Well Met (Book 1) as this week’s Friday Giveaway. I loved Simon and Emily and enemy-to-lovers but loop-holed costumed flirting.
This giveaway is for a U.S. Kindle copy of Well Met. Just leave a comment to be entered.
All’s faire in love and war for two sworn enemies who indulge in a harmless flirtation in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author, Jen DeLuca.
Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him?
The faire is Simon’s family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn’t have time for Emily’s lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she’s in her revealing wench’s costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they’re portraying?
This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can’t seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon, or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.
