Tour: Excuse My Fairy by Kinley Baker (Guest Post)

Please give a warm welcome to romance author, Kinley Baker! 

Thank you for hosting me at Reading Between the Wines Book Club! I’m so excited to be here because I can sense the love of romance, and I’m right there with you.

I’ll read anything with a romance element and a happy ending. Any genre works for me. I laughed when I was checking out the site because I can relate to your bios about the whole getting an eReader because someone got annoyed by the late night reading light.

That’s how things worked out in my family, too. Although my husband still doesn’t appreciate waking up at 3 a.m. only to see I’m still reading. I can’t help it. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with contemporary romance! Roni Loren kept me up really late with two of her books recently.

It’s so hard to go to sleep when I just keep thinking one more page!

Since you all have a lot of experience with romance, I was hoping to learn some new contemporary romance recommendations. The last few books I read were the Carina Press holiday anthology,a few Shannon Stacey, and Ruthie Knox. Loved them!

I’m also willing to trade recs! If you’re ever looking for paranormal, just ask me on Twitter. I’m always looking to chat with romance enthusiasts (@kinleybaker). I have a feeling you’ve probably read J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh and Larissa Ione. If you haven’t, they are fabulous authors.

I’ve been so lost in the strange-but-awesome world of the paranormal, that I feel completely out of the loop when it comes to contemporary.

I actually attempted to write a contemporary recently, and it was an eye-opening experience. Being restricted by reality concerning conflicts was challenging, but also educational. I’m always trying to make sure my fantasy characters have something people without powers can relate to.

There’s something so honest and potent about contemporary relationships. I love that feeling when you know something is going to go wrong.

You’re reading thinking… Oh no… Oh no… Don’t do it… Don’t it…

And then there’s this moment of: Nooo…

The character did it. 

But you feel so deeply for the character, you enjoy that moment. It makes the happy ending even sweeter.

My favorite part of romances is when I can really see how perfect a couple is for each other. By the end we understand why they fit.

What’s your favorite part of romances? Do you have a favorite subgenre? If you have a favorite book, I’d love to hear it. I’m really all about the reading lately.

Excuse My Fairy 
Kinley Baker
Her magic breaks all the rules. He breaks all of hers.
Draybeth is broken. Her fairy powers don’t work, her magic is completely dysfunctional, and not even her bad attitude and soft heart can win her back into Fairy favor. Exiled from their land, she struggles to make a life for herself in the human world. But when her bar burns to the ground and she meets one of the Impassables--the devastating Lawman Barrett--things become even more of a struggle. An arrest, murder, and abduction challenge everything she’s worked for, and worse, the Impassable Lawman appears to be her destined mate. But darkness stirs deep within Dray’s heart, and she’s not about to drag the gorgeous lawman down with her.
Barrett never expected to find himself mated to a fairy, let alone one with such a wicked temper and a short fuse. Being an Impassable, he should be immune to fairy magic, but Dray’s magic burns through him like lightning, just as everything else about her ignites him, body and soul. The fairy’s power over Impassables threatens everything this new realm was built upon, and as a Lawman, Barrett’s job is to make sure those threats are eliminated. But his feelings for Dray make him question just where his duty lies.
