Who says Famine can’t love cupcakes?

Ginny Lack is about to rise as Famine, the next horsewoman of the apocalypse. And to help her gain her powers, she’s agreed to an arranged marriage with a Brit, sight-unseen. Hope he doesn’t mind the dirty-talking grasshopper and her dead twin chasing her down the aisle. Aligning with another powerful Famine family could be her salvation…just so long as no one figures out that the heir to Famine loves to bake.

James Derth is the family black sheep because he’s determined to stop Famine, permanently. He’s so certain his plan to marry and stop the heir to his clan will work, he’s promised the gods results. But when he meets his sweet, curvy, red-headed fiancée, she’s nothing like the spoiled princess he expected. Her kisses are more irresistible than her cupcakes, but if he doesn’t keep his head firmly in charge and stop her rise in ten days, the gods will kill them both.

I've been writing about romance since I first read Cinderella, which is probably why my books are fun urban fantasy romance with a touch of magic, lots of humor, and a dab of geek. I invite you to join me in the quirky, paranormal town of Beckwell where you'll meet animals who sometimes talk, seniors causing mayhem, and real magic found in hope, love, and belonging.

When I'm not writing, you can find me wrangling a very patient husband, two daughters, and a small herd of cats. Find out more over at: www.shellychalmers.com

If you liked the first book then you will LOVE this one. It is so funny and it grabbed me right from the start. I loved the main character. This series just keeps getting better. I can't wait for the next one!

Book 2 is Ginny and her arranged marriage to James also from the famine clans. A great second book the women are feeling a bit flaky but I’m holding on as they seem to grow a backbone throughout the storyline.
My only peeve with this story is the arranged husband is a Brit and a toff to boot but his English words don’t ring true as a Brit myself I’ve cringed a lot at most of his words and feel that the author may have watched too much TOWIE or Made in Essex. We don’t call everyone mate or love aside from that it was good
