He’s no pushover. And she ain’t no fairy princess.
No one would guess that Sapphy, awesome whirlwind of Maze badassness, grew up sheltered in the Fae realm. Witnessing a murder drove her into the humans’ broken cities to hide, but now she’s back, going undercover to keep history from repeating as the tournament to choose a new Fae queen dawns.
The only pebble in her shit-kicking boot is the jaw-gritting interference of Nathe Amergin, a Fae Enforcer whose solemn violet eyes set her skin to sizzle.
After the loss of his beloved sister, Nathe saved his last shred of sanity by clamping a lid on his emotions and forging a path to justice. When this frustrating, blue-eyed, my-go-or-I’ll-blow female informs him of a possible threat to the realm, his offer of support is genuine, if reluctant.
While he’s willing to work with her to protect his people, this sinful smart-ass skates perilously close to unleashing an avalanche of passion that, as the final choosing looms and whispers turn to screams, could bury them both.
Contains ear-blushing sex between a flighty Fae with a mean air jab and a grounded Elemental who makes her earth move. Add a murderous queen clinging to power, and sabotage that strikes out of thin air. Anyone got ear plugs?
Sophie H. Morgan is a paranormal romance author with a love for hot guys, sassy heroines, and HEAs that seem impossible. When not at the keyboard working out ways to drive her characters into each other’s arms, you can find her rambling about the English countryside with her crazy spaniels, shopping for one more pair of shoes, or devouring yet ANOTHER romance novel with ANOTHER bag of raisin cookies.

Please welcome Whispers author Sophie H. Morgan to Diane’s Book Blog.
What is your favourite part of Whispers?
I love banter between characters, the simmering tension, the quick verbal clashes, the words that convince the other person to fall in love with them. Sapphy and Nathe are opposites, one throwing out teasing entendres, the other stating blunt putdowns. Like flint and tinder, sparks fly. There’s a scene in the castle where they’re going over their investigation, but their conversation turns saucy until it leads to a very intimate exchange indeed!
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
I loved writing the character of Sapphy. She’s full of sass and spice, determined not to show weakness and so assured of herself. She’d put her life on the line for you any day, make sure you were always laughing, and she’d push you to your limits to prove you should be scared of nothing.
Who is your favourite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I have so many favourites, it’s so hard to pick, but if I had to say one, it would be Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She has a true gift for humour, a knack for flinging witty repartee at the reader so they’re crying with laughter. Not only that, she isn’t afraid to tackle serious issues like miscarriages and depression, and twist them so they’re handled delicately but with a light edge so you’re not left under a dark cloud. Her secondary characters are so well-developed that it’s a joy to see them have their own romances in other books. Every time I sit down with a book by SEP, I can never put it down.
What is your typical day like?
When I have the day off from my pay-the-bills job, I try and write for at least an hour in the morning. Then I walk for an hour or so with my mad spaniels, have lunch, let the cells reboot. Then I’ll work on the writing until about three o’clock, have another break, and if I’m feeling inspired, get a few more hours in. I never try and push it – if I don’t enjoy it, that reflects in my writing. And while it’s a business, I also want it to be a pleasurable experience!
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I’m currently working on book 4 of the Divided Kingdom series. Without spoilers, it involves a silent beauty, a disgraced, sarcastic PI, the mob and a handful of sparkling diamonds.
Do you have anything specific to say to your readers?
A writer would be nothing without someone to read their work. I want to say thank you to everyone who bought Ashes, who preordered Whispers, who reviews my work, promotes it, and drops a line to share how much they enjoyed it. I appreciate it so much. Hugs to all.
