TOUCH UP is now available for pre-order!

Katey Hawthorne and I are thrilled to announce that TOUCH UP, our contribution to the upcoming ROSE AND THORNS series, is now available for pre-order! It's a standalone novel, but part of the shared ROSE AND THORNS universe. It will be released May 14th, and the reveal of the gorgeous cover by L.C. Chase will take place soon. 



About TOUCH UP: 

Last year, twenty-three-year-old actress Dina Gilbert snagged the lead in the summer’s biggest blockbuster. It wasn’t easy: she’s black, openly queer, and has actual curves she refuses to let people Photoshop. Now, overwhelmed by sudden fame and homesick for Georgia, she’s becoming someone she doesn’t recognize. Maybe that’s why she’s out partying her face off most nights.
Enter Colleen Thomas, an ex-model turned photo editor whose issues with her own body are only surpassed by her issues with other peoples’. Colleen knows the rules but Photoshops Dina’s magazine cover anyway, incurring the wrath of Dina and her fans. And, okay, maybe that cover image was unbelievably sexy even before Colleen’s alterations. So what? Dina’s not fooling anyone with that girl-next-door, I-eat-Snickers-in-my-Golden-Globes-dress BS. Colleen knows a train wreck when she sees one.
Tensions rise even more when Colleen and Dina have to work together at the Rose Social Club’s annual charity gala. When they realize they have something in common, no one is more surprised than they are. The sexual chemistry doesn’t hurt either. Their differences could either be a source of strength—a life raft in the heaving waters of Hollywood—or the makings of a titanic crash.

About the Rose and Thorns Universe:


The Rose and Thorns Ladies Social Club—where fame, sex, scandal, and sisterhood are always in vogue.

Pull back the red velvet curtain for a peek at the glitterati’s most salacious and long-lived secret society.

Founded in the dark, dangerous days of Hollywood during the Hays Code, The Rose and Thorns Ladies Social Club began as a haven for famous “female adventurers”—women who love women—to mingle, network, find a lover for the night or for life, and above all, to be their authentic selves away from judgmental eyes.

Actresses, models, politicians, dancers, athletes, heiresses . . . the Rose and Thorns welcomed them all, and its membership is rumored to have included some of history’s most compelling women. This latest generation is no different.

Decades have passed, the Hays Code has fallen, women’s place in society has shifted, and the nature of fame itself has changed. But the Rose and Thorns remains: a place where the famous, the infamous, the wealthy, the powerful, the beautiful, and the talented still meet in secret . . . until now.
