Honey Queen

When I first read the synopsis for this book I was intrigued. I mean, how could I NOT be!?!?! Honey Bee’s and Greek mythology? Huh?
Poor Melaina, she comes from a long line of cursed women, her sisters (the honeybees) don’t know who she is anymore, her mother is an addict, and the next thing she knows she is supposed to be the fulfillment of some prophecy!


I thought I had a lot on my plate!

To make matter’s worse, her instincts kick in and she needs to produce an heir quick! Which means those already out of control teenage hormones are insane!

Every man she comes into contact with can’t resist her, she is in love with Sam who has also been affected by her curse, her only choice is to isolate herself.

OH! Let’s not forget her grandma’s genius (yeah right!) idea to have her mate with someone who is already terminal, because the man she DOES mate with will die anyway.


Only, the plan backfires when she meets this guy, who happens to be gay! The curse doesn’t affect him! Not only that but apparently he is the key to her breaking the curse, and…well..

she’s the key to him staying alive!

All in all I thought this was a good book, and I’d recommend it for a good, easy read! Read on for a blurb and where to buy it!

Love is honey sweet, but it comes with a fatal sting . . .

Melaina Maris needs wings to fly the gap between loving Sam and her family’s ancient curse that forces carnal love and then kills the male lovers. She won’t let the same fate that killed her father befall another. She refuses to allow her goddess-created bloodline to continue. But there’s no easy way out, especially after the curse turns her into the Honey Queen—savior to honey bees—intensifying her charms.

To help her fulfill the curse’s demands in the least harmful way, her grandmother takes her to mate with terminally ill Boyd. But Boyd’s gay. And an expert in mythology. Instead of having sex, Melaina learns how she might summon the goddess who created the first ancestor bee-charmer and cursed her bloodline. Melaina’s magic—tears to save honey bees from endangerment—could be enough to persuade the goddess to end the curse. But an unexpected discovery soon changes that hope,spinning Melaina into a swarm of love, friendship and death.
