Where The Blue Thorns Grow by Maya Riley

Blurb:

What do you do, when everything you’ve ever known disappears in the blink of an eye?

As children, my twin brother and I read about a mountain range called the Carbolitas. It was the only place in the world that had these blue thorned flowers. We made it our life’s dream to make it to the top and see these strange and rare flowers. Until, I watched my twin brother, Clif, fall 4,000 feet to his death during a climbing trip gone wrong.

After Clif passed, I decided I was going to achieve our dream, even if it killed me. Lucky for me, I had a team of guys who’s sole focus was to keep us all safe.

We are going to do whatever it takes to make it to the place where the blue thorns grow, no matter what.

Author Cassie James #interview

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, y’all! My name is Cassie and I’m a full-time author and a reality TV junkie. When I’m not writing, I’m usually acting as professional servant to my dog, a three-year-old Great Pyrenees with serious attitude. (I swear, you’ve never heard a dog huff more than mine.)

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve known I wanted to write romance since the day I picked up my first romance novel. It was a Harlequin novel in my great-grandmother’s upstairs bedroom and I was absolutely not old enough to be reading it. But then I picked up another… and another… and well, I never put them down. I knew there was nothing I loved more than books, and nothing I wanted to write more than romance. I still have a handwritten copy of the first novel I wrote—a young adult romance so cringe worthy I hope it never sees the light of day!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Confession: I have a serious fear of a world where humans are overthrown by artificial technology. Yeah, I’m scared of robots, y’all. That means I spend much more time obsessing over them than I probably should, which is how my good friend and co-writer, Christine, and I started the discussion that led us to the idea that became The Thorns of Rosewood series. And yes, I do realize how bizarre it is that I chose an android for a main character—but I’m all about facing my fears!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on two projects right now. The Proxy, book two in The Thorns of Rosewood series, which I’m working on with a co-writer. Also, Saviors, which is the fourth and last book in my Pawns of Patience series.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Mumbling aloud. Sometimes, when I’m trying to get a line of dialogue just right, I’ll sort of say it under my breath the way I think my character would say it, just to see what needs to be tweaked. And yes, sometimes I do (very bad) accents.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

More books! There might even be a little something supernatural in the works…

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Do the work! Before I was a writer, I spent some time working in the film industry, and the one thing that has always held true is that one thing sets apart some dreamers from others. Their willingness to work. It isn’t always easy but if it’s really what you love it is so, so worth it.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Thanks you times a million. I love writing books, and I love even more that I get to share them with all of you.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Let’s see, my real name is Erin, so feel free to call me that. If you call me E. M., I probably won’t even look up! 🙂 I’m obsessed with murder mystery shows, fairly certain I saw a chupacabra once, and have a 14-year-old senior dog named Max who doesn’t even like me.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, always! I remember writing my first little story in Kindergarten that the teacher had to transcribe for me. It was titled The Three Witches. All throughout middle school and high school, I was obsessed with reading R. L. Stine (mainly the Fear Street series), so when I first started writing in high school, I wrote books like his.

I was told I should get a real job instead of being a writer, so I went to school to be a Librarian, did that for a few years, but for the past two years, I’ve been writing full-time, and I love every minute of it. I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So, kind of a cool story. I had this running daydream in my head all throughout middle school and high school. In this daydream, I was a famous basketball player. In fact, I was the first and only girl to ever play for the NBA. I placed myself in games, won championships, met Prince William, basically, this daydream was my retreat from the real world. I kept adding layers and layers. Eventually, I didn’t need the daydream so much, but when I thought about this daydream again, I realized what a great story it would make. Instead of putting myself in the NBA though, I put my MC, Tessa, in high school and had her challenge the boys for a spot on the boys’ team.

It’s got a lot of “girl power” aspects to it that I really love. I couldn’t be happier with the way the series turned out. 🙂

°

°

What are you working on now?

I actually just released the third and final book to The Ballers of Rockport High series, so I’m just about to start on my next series. The book is titled FREE FALL. It’s about a girl who falls in love with her brother’s best friends, who just so happen to be amazing football players.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I write in complete silence. I can’t stand any sort of noise while I’m writing. I also write in timed sprints, which helps keep me focused for a certain amount of time with tiny breaks in between.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep delivering quality books to my readers that they can’t wait to get their hands on. 🙂

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Keep writing. If it’s what you truly love, keep at it. Research, research, and research. There are always places you can find the information you seek about how to do something specific in the publishing world, whether its ads or book covers, or editing. It’s hard work, it won’t come easy, but it pays off.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you guys so much! So many amazing things happened to me recently, and it’s all because you guys are reading and recommending my books. I’m just so thankful to have readers like you guys! ❤

I survived the Blood Moon Ceremony… barely

Our pack is in ruins, ravaged by a traitor who left us to pick up the pieces.

My people need my help to rebuild, yet something went very wrong that night,

and I’m not the same wolf I used to be.

Now, I’m being forced into the Underworld

in a desperate attempt to unravel the darkness coiling within me.

The only creature able to prevent my magical overload

is a malevolent succubus who is sure to demand something in return.

And the way she ogles my men makes it clear she’s not to be trusted.

Let her look at me like I’m her next meal. She has no idea who she’s dealing with.

With my parents whisked into the Void, I have a pack to take care of, and Elders who will stop at nothing to kill me.

But my troubles don’t stop there.

The five delicious men I love are battling demons of their own and need me more than ever.

Can I be the alpha everyone is counting on, or will my failure tear our pack part?

Author Georgia Carter Mathers #interview @RomanceGeorgiaC

Pleas give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am an Aussie writer. I live in a little town called Toowoomba with my 19 year old son and my husband. I hold three degrees. One in psychology. One in creative writing, and one in publishing.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, I’ve always wanted to be a writer.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The inspiration for my current series was watching a demolition derby.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the second book, which is about Amanda’s sister, Mia and her harem.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

No, I don’t have many quirks when I’m writing, other than needing complete silence. At times, I listen to meditation music.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

My hopes for the future is to reach as many readers as possible, and also, I’m a feminist. I hope that one day women may truly be equal to men.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I talk to new authors everyday as I also edit. My advice is to look at the reality of the publishing landscape. You need an iron will and a thick skin to operate in a market with wafer-thin profit margins. Get your marketing systems up and running before you launch. Publishing is an art, but it’s also a business, and one without the other will result in failure. I also encourage them, obviously, to get a qualified editor.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To my readers, I don’t know what I’d do without you. The little responses I get over the email and in my reader group keep me motivated to keep going. For me, it’s all about writing for my readers, who turn into friends. I often get to the point where I am scared shitless of disappointing them. Being a writer is a hard life, and it’s not for everyone, but for those who have the calling, it is totally worthwhile.

April’s Fooles

by Raven Kennedy & Ivy Asher

My father named me after a gun and taught me how to skin and cook a squirrel by the time I was ten. The only feminine influence I ever had growing up was when Dharla Cornburner told me I needed to get laid.

I was raised feral on a solid diet of crazy, so when three hot ex-military dudes show up on my doorstep, making claims about a plague and the end of the world as I know it, I don’t even bat a lash.

They insist I need to go with them, that they’ll keep poor little ol’ me safe. I’m perfectly fine right where I’m at, but I’ve always been an adventurous girl, and the three of them and their muscles look like an excellent place for a me sandwich.

These boys are strung tight almost to the point of snapping. Which happens to be just how I like ‘em. Looks like the end of the world just got a hell of a lot more fun. Let the games begin.

This is a standalone Reverse Harem Romance.

📚 The Contemporary Reverse Harem Collection 📚

by Mika Lane

5 reverse harem stories of badass alpha males and the women they make their own.

The Inheritance

Life was good. I was tending bar, making enough to get by, paying my rent, and enjoying the occasional cocktail with my best gay boyfriend, Matty. And then I got the call.

The old coot who used to hang out in my bar? Turned out he was a millionaire. A multi-millionaire, actually. And he just left me all his money. With a catch, of course. I only get his money if I’m 25 years old (check), and married (not checked; not by a landslide). And–I only have 30 days to pull this off.

We used to call him Grandpa. He’d sit at the bar for hours and never leave a tip. He looked like the last person in the world to have an “estate.” Well, did your mother ever tell you not to judge a book by its cover? And thanks to good old Grandpa, it looks like I may never have to work again.

So what’s the problem?

Grandpa said I had to marry ONE guy. Not FOUR.

The Renovation

When Carter, my hunky neighbor spies me wrestling with a chunk of dry rot on the front porch of my piece of sh*t, moneypit, rundown not-so-home-sweet-home, help seems on the way.

Especially when Tanner, Wyatt, and Dig join the team just before the scumbag bank closes in.

Who knew home repair could get so sexy?

And it turned out my house was not the only thing that desperately needed some attention. They get to work fixing me…I mean the house…right up.

My four guys’ tools were just perfect for sharing.

For sharing ME, that is.

The Promotion

Imagine you want a promotion more than anything, at the boring-as-sh*t law firm where you’ve slaved for years. You’ve kissed a*s. You’ve smiled when you’ve felt like stabbing someone. You’ve pulled all nighters and saved your boss time and again.

And still that’s not enough. There’s one last thing you need to do.

Would you do it?

Because sometimes being the perfect employee isn’t enough.

I needed the help of friends. Strong, sexy, alpha friends named Anson, Cato, Braden, and Von—four hunky men who were ready and willing to help me get ahead.

Turns out my career wasn’t the only thing that needed some TLC.

The Gallery

They say don’t go into business, or to bed, with friends. But what if those friends are four hardcore rich and handsome alpha players?

Did I really think I could keep it clean with guys like that?

And when reality set it, I realized dirty is much more fun.

That’s my kind of business.

Four different men, alpha as hell, and serious as hell about their special, secret nightclub.

The biggest thing they had in common? Me. Well, and what they wanted to do to me behind closed doors.

The Collection

I know better than to trust a bunch of pretty faces.

The charmer: killing me with his hot Irish accent

The rebel: giving his rich family the middle finger

The single dad: raising his baby alone

The nerd: always with his nose stuck in a book

But when these our gorgeous men walk off the runway and into my life, I find it’s not just the hours and lousy pay in fashion that are, um, hard.

And what do these guys have in common?

ME.

Saving Meritt

Stacy Jones and Coralee June

My dad, a small town detective, died last month, but I stopped knowing him over a decade ago when he sent me away. So, I was surprised to learn that he left me everything—including his retired K9 dog, Remy.

Determined to claim Remy and return to my life in Nashville, I wasn’t prepared to see them again.

My best friends. My first loves.

Denver, the sweet but fierce K9 officer with guilt in his eyes. Tatum, the reclusive mountain man next door, hellbent on making me keep my father’s land. And Krew, my charismatic friend, now an unlikely member of a dangerous motorcycle club.

I assumed they forgot about me, but they haven’t. I thought I was over them, but I wasn’t.

The innocence of childhood love turns deadly when secrets are revealed. I’ve learned more about the father I thought didn’t want me, but that knowledge? It may very well get me killed.

Wildest Dreams

by Lucy Smokes

In my Wildest Dreams, I never imagined I’d see him again.

The night I gave my virginity to Preston McConnell was the last night I ever saw him. Six years later and broke off my ass, I take a job at the best special feature magazine in the southern United States. It’s my dream job, and I’m more than happy to take on my first assignment that includes a one-way ticket to South Africa, where I’m supposed to follow a veterinarian who has made a name for himself as the lion whisperer.

I haven’t dated anyone since Preston, and the bitter, broken-hearted girl I used to be is ready to pack up and quit the very second I see him again. It’s only the soft words from Preston’s best friends, Jay and Wren, that stop me in my tracks. Encouragement and a way out presents itself in the form of the two hot as sin safari guides. I can’t let Preston get to me like he used to. I’m here to do a job and nothing more. If he wants to rekindle anything, he’ll have to get used to competition because, in my dreams, I’m no longer flying solo.

No. I don’t want one man. I want three.

🎬 Hollywood Roommates 🎬

by Elizabeth Briggs

Three sexy actors. One curvy English teacher. An impossible rule just begging to be broken…

When my boyfriend dumps me, I need a new place to live, fast. Luckily my best friend offers me a solution: move in with her brother and his two roommates in his Malibu beach house. Sounds good, right?

Except my new roommates turn out to be three of the hottest actors in Hollywood. Each one is gorgeous, rich, and famous—and they’re all off-limits because there’s only one house rule: no sleeping together.

They could have any woman in the world, but to my surprise they each want me. Soon there’s a new rule: whatever I do with one guy, I do with all of them.

There’s no way this can end well, but how am I supposed to choose just one of my sexy-as-sin roommates?

Unless I don’t have to choose…

*This sexy standalone reverse harem romantic comedy is intended for readers 18+ due to mature content.*
