Is the Author of The Thorne Witches Series. 

I want to take a minute to talk about The Thorne Witches series…

If you haven’t had the chance to discover this series for themselves, I’d like to tell you about it the following is taken from T M Cromer’s newsletter.  Please feel free to check out her website for further information:

The Thorne Witches is a series about a family of witches set in rural Tennessee. They go about their everyday life all the while keeping their powers hidden from the rest of their community.

Summer Thorne (Summer Magic – bk 1) is a veterinarian and runs the local animal sanctuary. She takes in all the animals that no one else wants or that have been mistreated by others. There is nothing normal about Summer or her animals. Like all good heroines do, she runs afoul of the town sheriff, Cooper Carlyle, whom she’s always crushed on. Only now, Coop wants to shut her down for the safety of the town. This story is filled with laugh-out-loud humor and hijinks.

Autumn Thorne (Autumn Magic – bk 2) is an activist and maintains the families finances. She’s also the ringleader of the witches and tends to tell it like it is. If you love a strong, kickass character, you’ve found it in Autumn. Her story is about love, loss, and sacrifice. What wouldn’t she do for the ones she loves? But it’s also about redemption and forgiveness. While this story is more serious in nature than book 1, I feel you’ll fall in love with the characters as they develop along with the story arc and enjoy this story just as much, if not more, than book 1.

Winnie Thorne (Winter Magic -bk 3) has a thriving company that produces potions and lotions for those with health issues. She makes magical arthritis creams for the elderly and bakes plate-sized cinnamon rolls that never fail to get devoured. But our dear, quiet Winnie has been holding onto a secret for a long while. She’s been in love with Zane Carlyle for a great many years. And unfortunately for her, they’ve already made a hash of things. Only she’s wiped Zane’s memory so he wouldn’t know about their first go around. Winnie’s story pulls in the humor of book 1 with the angst of book 2 and then adds a little magic of its own. With support characters you’ll fall in love with, this book is a winner for Winter.

Spring Thorne (Spring Magic – bk 4) is the family jewel. She sparkles and shines, and has a genius IQ. Sure, some of us might hate her on principle alone, but I’m betting you’ll fall in love with her in this particular series. Spring isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with the big baddie – or the mouthwatering Knox Carlyle – to come out on top. Her story has a few dark moments for our feisty heroine, but she is a fighter, and I promise, you’ll be cheering the outcome of this particular book.

Holly Thorne (Rekindled Magic – bk 5) is the half-sister to the Weird Season Sisters. This “Prickly Pear” has had a rough go of it, but she’s not going to let that get in the way of what – and who – she wants. With the delectable warlock Quentin Buchanan as her self-appointed bodyguard, Holly has no reason to fear those wishing to do her harm.

While our story arc ends with book five, there will be other books coming in the series that are stand alone.

Alastair Thorne, the man you love to hate in book 1 but fall in love with by book 5, will have his own story called Long Lost Magic (bk 6).

Nash Thorne, the scholarly businessman with an attitude, will thrill you with his story, Essential Magic (bk 7).

And we mustn’t forget the vivacious GiGi Thorne-Gillespie and her wayward husband Ryker. These two will have a second chance at romance in her story. As yet, book 8 is nameless, but I’ll be hosting a book-naming contest in the near future. Be sure to have your thinking caps ready!



Dare Me by Rebecca Shea



The sexy, stand-alone romance from USA Today Bestseller Rebecca Shea

Cover by Regina Wamba

On sale for $2.99 for a short time!

Five coworkers.
Four drinks.
Three glances.
Two fleeting smiles.
One dare.
A dare that will change my life.
That’s all it takes to send me plummeting into the arms of the mysterious Holt Hamilton. Behind his crystal blue eyes is a secret, one that screams danger but calls to me anyway.
My name is Saige Phillips.
I never walk away from a dare.

“Lucia’s Kitchen?” Saige’s eyes widen in surprise as I pull into the valet drive.
“You’ve been here before?” I ask, curious.
“No. I’ve heard it’s amazing but impossible to get a reservation.” She twists her hands together in her lap.
“It is,” I admit. “But my buddy Mark owns the restaurant. Lucia is his daughter’s name.”
She blinks at me. “You know the owner of Lucia’s?”
I grin. “I do.”
“Figures,” she says under her breath.
The valet opens the car door to help her out, and I jog around to meet her. Pressing my hand to the small of her back, I guide her into the fancy new restaurant in Old Town. It’s just down the road from my house and one of the neighborhood’s trendiest new restaurants.
“I thought we were just doing drinks,” she says, raising her eyebrows at me.
“We can’t very well have drinks without having something to eat. I saw the way you stumbled out of Bar 51 last night.” I smirk and she blushes.
“Mr. Hamilton, your table is ready,” the hostess says, and Saige falls quickly into step behind her.
The table I requested is private yet overlooks the outside dining area below us so it doesn’t stand out as isolated. The restaurant is dark with dim overhead lights and accent candles on the tables providing the only sources of light. The atmosphere is modern and upbeat, yet still mysterious.
“Would you like a drink? Perhaps a lemon drop shot? That’s what I saw you indulging in last night, correct?”
Her lips twist into a smile she’s holding back, and she shakes her head. “Uh, no thank you. I’ll take a vodka martini, extra dirty, please.”
I damn near choke when she says “extra dirty,” but the waiter nods his head and looks to me. “Jameson reserve. Neat.”
“Yes sir, Mr. Hamilton. I’ll be right out with your beverages.”
“Reserve?” She questions.
“Only the best.”
She puckers her lips, and I can tell she wants to say something, but she refrains.
“So I’m curious,” I begin and rest my elbow on the table. I know it goes against all forms of proper etiquette, but I honestly don’t care. “Why are we here, Saige?”
Her eyes widen, but she doesn’t hesitate. Good. “Because this is where you chose to bring us,” she deadpans.
I throw my head back and let out an exuberant laugh. She’s beautiful, smart, and funny. Everything I knew she would be and more. Our drinks arrive in record time, and I give the waiter a look to which he quickly catches on and leaves us alone. Saige picks up her martini glass and presses the rim to her bottom lip. Her tongue brushes just over the rim, easing the cool liquid into her mouth.
Her lips. That tongue. Fuck.
“So back to the question at hand,” I say, picking up my own drink. “Why are we here?” I pull a quick taste of the smooth whiskey into my mouth, letting it settle on my tongue before swallowing.
“It’s embarrassing,” she says innocently, her eyes falling to her lap.
“Tell me,” I demand with a smile. “I’m curious why Saige Phillips asked me out for a drink.”
She winces after taking another sip of her martini and pats her chest as she swallows the bitter liquid. “It was a dare,” she admits with a grimace. “It sounds childish, but we were sitting at the table and Emery decided we should play Truth or Dare, and they dared me—”
“To ask me out,” I finish her sentence. I laugh to myself, although I don’t know if I should be flattered, offended, or horrified. Truth or Dare? I scoff internally.
Saige looks absolutely mortified. She lifts her eyes and finally looks at me, answering quietly. “Yes. It’s an app that Emery has on her phone. It’s a drinking game.” She looks as horrified as I felt a moment ago. I smile as she fumbles around nervously with her explanation.
I can barely contain my laughter, and I see her visibly relax. “You asked me out on a dare?” I shake my head.
She nods and grips her martini glass for dear life.
“So what would’ve happened if you didn’t take the dare?” I ask, taking another sip of the smooth whiskey.
“I would’ve taken a shot.”
I study her expression. She’s telling the truth, but why wouldn’t she just take the shot? Seems the much easier choice rather than asking out the boss. “Didn’t look like you had any problem taking shots before you asked me out for drinks,” I quip.
“I had already had a shot,” she fires back at me. “And how would you know if I was taking shots?” She asks defensively.
I study her for a moment. “I was watching you, Saige. I enjoy watching you.” I admit boldly.
She audibly gasps, her chest rising and falling with each quick breath she takes.
I fix my eyes on hers and continue, “And I saw you watching me.”
Her upper lip twitches as she thinks of a sarcastic comeback. I can see the vein in her neck throbbing with the beat of her pulse before she finally whispers, “We shouldn’t do this.” She pulls a green olive off the toothpick floating in her martini, then she pops it into her mouth. The green olive matches her eyes perfectly.
I watch her shift uncomfortably in her chair for a few seconds before I respond, “Why not?”
“Because you’re my boss.” So naïve, sweet little Saige is.
“I’m actually not,” I tell her.
She frowns. “You own the company I work for; same thing.”
I clarify, “I’m part owner of the company you work for.”
She sighs. “Holt, this is just drinks. That’s all.” But her eyes tell me she wants more.
I lean closer to her. “It’s never just drinks, Saige.”

“She made the first move, so I’m all in and ready to play.”
– Oscar (Oz) Strong
Sometimes life gets f&%#ed up. Is it my fault?
I might be a literal genius in biochemistry. I might have made the right choice when I let two of my college chess team buddies talk me into putting my brain and my multiple degrees to work in an unexpected way that has made us ridiculously wealthy. I may be the founding partner who developed our full line of wildly successful, supercharged, pheromone colognes. I might have even been damned smart, coming up with the idea to take our multimillion-dollar company public.
But that doesn’t mean I make the most intelligent decisions when it comes to my personal life.
For instance, I let my parents push me into marriage right after I finished at Columbia.
I should’ve reminded dear old Mom and Dad that their geekster, brainiac son has spent a lot of time at the gym packing on muscle and has learned how to treat a lady, both in and out of bed…so I’m smart enough to pick my own woman.
But naw.
I married a girl because my parents liked her family’s name. A girl who didn’t love me but instead loved my trust fund.
Now that I think about it, smart people really can be obtuse to the point of idiocy. Which is why falling for my new assistant is not only my biggest f&%# up, but it’s also a mistake that could put both of my business partners and our company’s future at risk.
It’s stupid, I know. But then she goes and makes the first move, and fierce competitor that I am, I can’t help but rise to the challenge.
I’m all in and ready to play by her rules. I just don’t realize until it’s too late that the only rule to the game she wants to play is seductive, steamy, sexy…and so positively sinful.

Savage Love by Ella Miles


**Now a Top 100 Amazon Bestseller**

I hate him.

He’s made my life a living hell every day since we were five years old. We’ve been enemies since the day he cut off my pigtails in first grade and I retaliated by drawing on his face with a sharpie.

Our hate of each other grew stronger as we got older. We grew more savage in the way we dealt with each other. We broke bones in fights, sabotaged each other’s dates, and ruined any chance each other had at happiness.
We went our separate ways after college. I never thought I’d have to deal with that asshole again.

But I’m out of a job, so when the opportunity to compete for one of the highest profile PR jobs presented itself, I jumped at the chance. Even if it means I’ll have to compete with Carter for the job. I’ll be more than happy to crush him on the way to my dream job. I’m willing to do anything, savage things, to ensure I win.

There’s just one problem. I forgot how much my body betrays me every time I see Carter. Because despite all the horrible things he’s done, it doesn’t stop me from wanting to do naughty, unthinkable things with him. Will my savage heart be enough to resist his charms?

**Savage Love is a standalone enemies-to-lovers romance on the steamy side.**
