#CWW – Traitors of the Black Crown (Black Crown Book 1) by Cate Pearce
I was just totally smitten by the blurb of this one. It’s a new to me author, so I have no idea what to expect but I have heard positive things about it.
Publisher – Hansen House
Genre – LGBTQIA | Romance | Sci Fi & Fantasy
Pub Date – 22 Sep 2021
Goodreads – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/55527555-traitors-of-the-black-crown
Three women will betray the black crown. A Knight. A Duchess. A Queen.
Raena Schinen narrowly escaped when the Queen’s guard murdered her entire family. If Raena’s survival is exposed, she’ll be next. For fifteen years Raena has hidden as a male Knight, “Sir Rowan”, consumed by her vengeful desire to assassinate the Queen.
The moment Raena is close enough to exact her revenge, she is unexpectedly exiled to a foreign land. There she serves the common-born Duchess Aven Colby, whose suspicious kinship with the Queen further threatens Raena’s delicate secrets.
Just as they become united in a common goal to curb a looming invasion, unexpected heat and romance blossoms between “Sir Rowan” and Aven. The peril demands they set out on a journey to form clandestine political alliances, risking the Queen’s wrath, and drawing Raena and Aven closer together.
But no one in the kingdom could have imagined the sinister foe rising from below the surface. In order to save themselves and those they love, Raena, Aven, and the Queen must recognize who are the oppressors and who will unite against the Black Crown.

Shelf Control – Chosen (The Warrior Chronicles Book 1) by K.F. Breene
I adore this author’s books, yet have allowed this to sit unread on my kindle for an embarrassing amount of time. Particularly when I know that the heroine will be amazing, because the author won’t stand for anything less! I’m hoping to move it from my TBR list to read next month.

It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom which has been stolen.
Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she’s been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn’t believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.
It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey.
But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.
War is coming. The only choice becomes: Which side do you choose?
So my fellow book lovers – what are you currently reading and is it from your TBR list?

It’s on my list for reading in May, hopefully life doesn’t throw a curveball and ruin those plans.
Ooo! Talk about intrigue! Traitors of the Black Crown does sound good! Chosen sounds really good as well. I hope you enjoy both of these when you read them. Happy reading, Louise!
