Twelve men. A virgin queen. One arranged marriage.

Three men.
Too many betrayals.
A multitude of secrets.

They circle me like the walls in this tower.

Because Landon Astor isn’t who I thought he was. My history entwines with his in ways I don’t want to believe are true. And speaking of histories…Sebastian’s past struts in sporting a pair of stilettos and an attitude to match th

Gemma made me so happy when she gave me Gemini as an ARC,too!
Because this series is so damn good!
It makes my head spin and my heart ache.
It haunts my mind,going over each and every detail,over and over.
Writing a review without giving too much detail will be tough,but it wíll be honest!

Novalee is staying at the House of Landon this month,and it starts with a bang!
Devastating secrets are shared,secrets apparently her lady Faye knew about and that hurts.
Her remaining lady,or should i say returning

The last two books weren't amazing, but I'm pretty amazed at how bad this one is even in comparison to them.

The characterisations are thin as wallpaper, there's plot twist after plot twist which are all equally unbelievable and come out of NOWHERE, there's random angst thrown in for the hell of it which doesn't have any productive effect on the plot... even the sex scenes were limited in quantity and quality. Really no redeeming features about this particular instalment.

Gemini is the third part of this series and in each part, we are getting deeper and deeper into the Zodiac legend and how these men tick. Novalee has been put into this position through no fault of her own and these men know it. They refuse to let her out of it because of some superstition that benefits them not her. Selfishness is the main event when it comes to these 12 men. Novalee has to navigate through lies, deceit, and sexual tension that will bring heartache to her.

Wake me when its over and I will read it ALL then.

This was a tiny little chapter that did little to add to the overall. Probably would get a better rating that way. This felt like a waste of 20 minutes.

Gemma James! You drop a bomb like that and leave me hanging? Ugh, woman!

Gemini is "episode" 3 in the Zodiac Queen Series. You MUST read Aries and Taurus first.
This episode is SO enlightening. We learn so much about NovaLee, her circumstances, her lady's maids, family, faith, curses..
SO much... Yet it reads SO fast. I started it this morning at work and then finished it at lunch. So good, you can't help but speed through. It's not as risque as the others, although there are definitely panting dro

Omg. These books can’t be long enough. What other reason can there be for me devouring this book in under a couple of hours.
Oh yeah that’s right. It’s because it’s bloody brilliant.
The third instalment of the zodiac series.
We see Novalee enter the house of Gemini where secrets are revealed to her left, right and centre and not all is as it seems at all.

Gemma James leaves us with yet another explosive cliffhanger. I cannot get enough of this series.

This is becoming book crack

So the plot thickens and I’ve compulsively bought the remaining books available in the series. This is seriously like a one hour television show/drama... “Next Time on Zodiac Island...” and I’m just binge watching mentally self-produced Netflix of my very own lol

But I’m buddy reading with one of my besties so the experience is 100% more fun and I love it. Another wickedly awesome installment.

Discoveries to keep us on edge

While new discoveries have been revealed it also brought the intreage of who will win, what will they win her heart or throne.

If you have not started this series I recommend to check it out this series is full of twists intreage, with revealing secrets the plot now unfolds more than a RH or the triangle I believed it to be.

I'm finding this series interesting but confusing at the same time.
I'm also feeling so bad for the princess and what she is having to endure.

I need to start off by saying that I’m not overly patient and this series novella format is really not my thing where each installment is less than 100 pages. That being said, I am completely intrigued with the underlying mystery of the Zodiac Brotherhood.

Novalee is left in the care of her uncle after her parents pass. He has arranged for her to be auctioned off to one of the 12 members of the Zodiac Brotherhood, but first she has to spend one month with each of the men. In book 3, we meet Lando

Novalee & Landon House of Gemini
5 Stars

Holy crap this book, this series is getting so freaking heavy with plot twists, suspense, and more sexy times. I can hardly contain myself! Novalee is once again put through the ringer but rest assured she'll prevail... well at least I think she will.

Landon is a stand up guy and wants nothing but the best for everyone involved. He takes on a role I never dreamed of, but that's why I'm the reader and not the writer

WOAH! Gemini is hands down the best book yet! I could not devour the pages quick enough. Each installment of The Zodiac Queen only gets better than the one before it. I am already so addicted to this series the wait is going to be brutal. Every page of this story kept me on the edge of my seat and my mind spinning. I thought the secrets, revelations, and angst would kill me. I never saw any of it coming till it slapped me in the face. I have to give major kudos to the author for some of the best ...more

4 and 1/2 stars

This series is really beginning to build up momentum! We are hit with a bombshell right off the bat. It seems that the Brotherhood have many secrets and Novalee is smack bang in the middle of this storm. The deeper we fall, the more tangled the web becomes. Landon is quite the puppet master. It seems like he wields great knowledge but how will it work out? I was breezing through this story and I just need to know more. So much is unknown and only little dribbles are coming through

Gemini is the 3rd book in The Zodiac Queen series. From the first book, I was intrigued by this world and I wanted more. After this 3rd book, I am obsessed. I’m an avid reader so I normally see things coming, but I could never guess or imagine what Gemma James had in store for us. I found myself completely engrossed and left wanting more at the end. It was fantastic!

There was great character development in Gemini. Novalee begins to spread her wings, and finds the courage to face these men head o

Must be read in order!

Gemini wasn’t at all what I expected going in, and it wasn’t what Novalee was expecting from beginning to end!
Intertwined fates and hidden truths are seated throughout the book, but unexpectedness from the beginning to the revelation at the end were not the paths I “thought” the plot would follow from the first two books! Mind games are plenty, and I for one can’t wait for Novalee to step up her own game by the end of the series!!

This series is going to kill me! Every time I start to think I know where the plot is going, there’s a new twist. As her time with Heath has come to an end, it’s Landon’s turn to spend time with the Queen, Novalee. But, as per norm for this series, more secrets unveil themselves, leaving Novalee wondering who she can trust and what is going to become of her when it’s over.

This is the third book in the series and you’ll want to read the previous two in order to understand the plot, but in this o

Wow, what a story. Novalee has found herself in the house of Gemini With Landon. He tells her a secret she never thought she would believe. When she learns that Faye knew the secret and didn't tell her, she sends her away.
The secret is one that Landon is not going to tell the others in the Brotherhood but he has to tell Sabastian because he wants him to win Novalee in the final auction. There are other secrets that Novalee learns in this book that will leave you wondering why Evangeline would cu

Gemini is book three in Gemma James’ latest series The Zodiac Queen which is a twelve part collection.

This series follows Novalee Van Buren a twelve year old Queen who has been contracted out by her Uncle to the Zodiac Brotherhood. When she turns eighteen she is to spend 12 months, a month each with each brother before being auctioned to be married to one. But the one catch is she must remain innocent and untouched until her wedding night.

Gemini is the third book in The Zodiac Queen series and it had more twists and turns than a roller-coaster! It's a good thing, since some of my questions were answered sooner, rather than later. I'm engrossed with this series and I can't wait to find out what will be revealed next!

Without giving too much away, Landon was hell bent on Novalee hooking up with Sebastian in this one. And as we learned from the last few books, there's a definite attraction between the both of them. Now, I'm curious t

This is the third book in the series and they must be read in order. Novalee is in the house of Gemini this month. She will be dealt more blows this month. Some harder to handle than others. Landon isn’t someone she has to worry about. He doesn’t present the same danger the others do. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a plan just like the other men. Novalee finds herself in a free fall and one mystery is uncovered. With each house she stays in she learns more and somethings she wished she didn’t ...more

Sebastian and Novalee.

What tangled webs were weaved in practices of deceits for centuries throughout the Zodiac Castle. This 3rd installment is full of secrets that sheds light on Novalee and her entire life preluding to the contract of marriage auction to any one of the Zodiac men. She finds shocking truths, confessions, betrayals, and omissions of truths of some of the zodiac men - Liam, Landon, amd Sebastian.

All I can say is WOW!

Novalee is a young woman who is forced into an arrangement with the twelve "princes" of Zodiac Island by her uncle after an unfortunate event leaves her in his care. In this time she will spend one month with each of them getting to know them. She can not refuse anything that they tell her to do, and they push her to her limits. At the end of the twelve months, there will be an auction to see who gets to marry Novalee and take away her maidenhood.
