Here are some books that I enjoyed in April:
The Queen of Ieflaria by Effie Calvin: First of all, the cover is gorgeous! This was a fairly light fantasy romance that sets up an interesting world I'm hoping for more books in. A princess has been betrothed to a prince of another country for years. When he dies unexpectedly, she agrees to marry his sister, who has no desire to be heir to the throne, instead. And there are dragons.
Aberrant Magic series by Lyn Gala: I read the first four books in this paranormal series about a unit within the FBI of magic users solving magical crimes and enjoyed them all. The world building is interesting, and I liked the characters and romance.
Ghost of a Chance by Kris T. Bethke: This paranormal in from DSP's Dreamspun Beyond line. In this world, we're introduced to ghostwalkers who cross over to the other side to help spirits find their way. They have to die to do it, which was slightly shocking to me, but I really enjoyed the world and the romance, and liked our main characters, Blake and Derek very much. I'm looking forward to more books in the series.
The Doctor's Discretion by EE Ottoman: I've been wanting to read this for a while and finally got to it, and I'm so glad I did. This is a historical interracial romance with a trans character. Both main characters are doctors, and it seems that the author put a lot of research into 19th century medicine too. It deals with some heavy themes, but the wonderful characters lighten the heaviness. They fit together wonderfully.
Unmasked by the Marquess by Cat Sebastian: I loved this book. It made me happy. It's a historical romance with a non binary main character. I just loved Alistair and Robin together. Their friendship and romance were lovely, and they are altogether delightful. It left me smiling so much.
Breathless by Beverly Jenkins: This is the second book in the author's Old West series. It stands on its own fine I would think, but the first book, Forbidden, is great as well, so go read both. I liked Kent and Portia, and I liked them together in this book. I'm looking forward to reading Regan's book.
