ARIES (THE ZODIAC QUEEN #1) by Gemma James
Release Date: October 1st
I can’t believe it!!! I can’t believe that Gemma James captured my wicked heart once again. This story is quick but mighty! It will leave you with so many emotions that you (well me) won’t know what to do with all of it!
Novalee is a queen… the Zodiac Queen and she’s being forced to marry, but she must only pick from the twelve suitors that are slated for her hand in marriage. She must spend 30 days (one month) with each one before they actually auction her off to one of them. Wow… just wow!! Who comes up with this shit? Gemma James, that’s who. Novalee is only 18 years old, but man oh man she’s something else. She has her innocence, but yet she’s snarky as all get out. She makes you laugh and weep for her. I can’t wait to see how she behaves with the other 11 brothers of the Zodiac.
Liam is her first suitor and wowza, this guy can spank me all day long. He’s firm yet kind and he knows what needs to be done to prepare Novalee for the next eleven months. Make no mistake, he wants her for his own, but he only gets a month with her so time is of the essence when it comes to training and showing his affection for her.
I am hooked and can’t wait to read the rest of these month long “get to know ya” encounters. Next up is Heath and holy hell, this guy is scary. I’m a little worried for Novalee on this one and I think Liam is too. Bring on the brut!!!
Twelve men. A virgin queen. One arranged marriage.
The first time I met the boys of the Zodiac Brotherhood, I was forced to my knees for the introduction. Still grieving the death of my parents, I was a child queen, a pawn in my uncle’s agenda for wealth and gain. As my guardian, he had the authority to arrange a marriage upon my eighteenth birthday.
That meeting took place six years ago.
Now those boys are powerful men.
Twelve virile men that want to own me.
And I must spend a month with each one.
Bending and yielding to their desires and commands.
Shedding pieces of my innocence so long as my virtue remains intact.
Because they want a virgin queen after the last month concludes, and my uncle plans to auction me off to the highest bidder.
Out of the twelve men, only one has my heart.
And only one can claim my hand in marriage.
If only it were up to me to decide.
