In Love With My Djinn by Nicki Pascarella is a Spring Break Bookapalooza pick #romantasy #romcom #giveaway



Title: In Love With My Djinn

 

Author: Nicki Pascarella

 

Genre: Romantasy/RomCom

 

Book Blurb:

 

After catching her fiancé in a compromising position, a heartbroken Regina Reynolds calls off her wedding last minute. Instead, she spends her beach honeymoon with her eccentric grandmother, a fake service dog, and her goofy best friend. As if this isn’t a sharp enough stab at her aching heart, the social media muckraker she caught her ex-fiancé with is snooping in her private life and trying to steal her journalism job.

 

 Then there’s the infuriating man who follows her home from a walk on the beach. He makes a home in her bathtub and endears himself to her companions by entertaining them with Scheherazade-like stories. Fazil watches Regina with his spectacular smoldering eyes, goes to war with her ex, and does everything within his power to cheer her up. Unfortunately, he also calls her “Master” and insists that she make ten wishes so he can be set free from his twelve-hundred-year-old curse. The crazy situation provides her camera-carrying stalker with extra ammunition in her quest to destroy Regina’s life. And so, no matter how much this mountain of muscles sends tingles to her toes, she can’t fall for this bizarre man—unless he really is a sexy, magical genie?

 

Excerpt:

 

Although the step was high, and I didn’t want to fall on my ass in front of the tourists milling about, I pushed Fazil’s helping hand to the side and attempted to scale the vehicle on my own. I placed my flip-flopped foot in the precise center of the first step and pushed. My body gracefully lifted, and I was almost in the carriage when Chelsea Benton appeared in the crowd. My glower took so much energy that I lost my balance and toppled backward. My life passed before me as I hurtled toward the pavement. I braced for the crash but instead landed in Fazil’s outstretched arms. 

 

He held me to his chest. “Are you okay?”

 

I rebounded from the fear adrenaline. “Thank you.”

 

“You must be careful.”

 

In one swift move, he cradled me in his arms. He hoisted me into the carriage and gently placed me on the seat across from Val, then settled into the short bench beside me. The space was so tight we were less than an inch apart. 

 

“We’re ready,” Grandma called to the driver.

 

The befuddled man placed his hat on his head and climbed onto the driver’s seat. “First up, historic Queen Anne’s Drive.”

 

Val let out a happy squeal. Grandma smiled and scratched Lenny between the ears.

 

When Fazil relaxed into his space, his thigh pressed up against mine. An electric current surged from my leg, through my core, up to my neck, and whooshed out of me in a gasp. 

 

“The first house on our tour was built by shipbuilder Angus Williams. Take note of the widow’s watchtower on the third floor,” called our driver over his shoulder.

 

Fazil whispered in my ear, “Are you okay, Little Nymph?”

 

Absurd girly hormones flitted about my entire body until even my toes and fingers hummed. I tensed my body attempting to stop them. It was no big deal. Nothing to worry about. Endorphins from my recent fall simply had me out of whack.

 

“The houses are so beautiful,” Val said. “Almost as pretty as your house, Nancy.”

 

Grandma’s expensive teeth glowed in the moonlight.

 

“Little Nymph, do you like the lampposts?” Fazil’s words tickled my neck.

 

My answer was a bobbing nod.

 

“They are like a thousand fireflies lighting a path through the night,” he coed in a soft, seductive baritone.

 

I trapped my moan in my throat as I squirmed in my seat.

 

I missed the rest of the tour since my eyes were closed, and I had to concentrate on not hyperventilating.

I wrote In Love With My Djinn with the intention that readers could lounge on the beach, laugh, fall in love, and forget about life for awhile. The story takes place on a fictional New Jersey Beach. It is one hundred percent silly fun.
