Brought to you by:
A fae beast. A wild beauty. A curse that could doom them both.
As town greenwitch, Aster’s dedicated her life to defending her people from the nightmarish fae of the forest. Yet despite her best efforts, each year a girl is taken as a tithe by the Beast who rules the Folkwood. None ever return.
And this year, the Beast claims Aster.
Trapped in a cursed palace, taunted by mischievous, invisible servants, Aster despairs of ever making it home. Then the Beast offers her a bargain—if she can restore his rose garden and break the curse on his court, he will set her free.
But healing the enchanted garden requires more than just growing flowers. It forces Aster to open her heart and face the shadows of her past to discover a power of her own…
In doing so, she sees a softer side to the Beast’s savage beauty and dark magic. As feelings blossom between the two of them, Aster faces an impossible choice: her people or her heart.
Can Aster break the curse? Or will she doom the Beast—and her people—forever?
A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, An Enchantment of Thorns is the first in a new series of interconnected fairy tale retellings that feature strong heroines, swoon-worthy heroes, clean romance, and magical happy ever afters. Readers are comparing this new fae romance to A Court of Thorns and Roses, Uprooted, and The Cruel Prince.
Today’s Thriller of The Day
Who really killed Maisie Earnshaw?
Within the walls of the high-security psychiatric facility, Crowmont Hospital, reside many violent offenders. To nurse Leah Smith, no matter what, all offenders are patients first and foremost. When Leah is appointed as nurse to Isabel Fielding, she is determined to remain professional despite the shocking crime Isabel allegedly committed in her past.
Years ago, six-year-old Maisie Earnshaw was found face down in a duck pond, her body mutilated. Isabel–at age fourteen, found covered in Maisie’s blood–was convicted of murder.
As Leah spends time with Isabel, she comes to know her as a young woman with a sweet, gentle nature, someone she could never see as a murderer. Leah begins to suspect members of the Fielding family of framing Isabel as a young girl, and she’s not the only one. True crime blogger James Gorden thinks Isabel is innocent too.
Is Leah allowing her own dark past to taint her judgement as she grows closer to her patient? Or has a young woman been unjustly robbed of her childhood?

Live a Healthy, Happy, Long Life and Prosper Without Stress: The Life Transformation Paradigm: Seven Lifestyle Shifts to Live the Life You are Designed to Live
We are designed to live a life of happiness and peace. Happiness and peace allow us to live healthy, long, and prosperously. The emphasis on the accumulation or higher earning of money to achieve peace and happiness has created a society and a world in which everyone is running around overly busy and stressed and overloaded with responsibility. At the end most cannot find peace and happiness because they are in too much debt, are chronically ill at a younger age, and most do not come out winners at the accumulation game. We are a sickened society from the results of so much stress from pursuing peace and happiness by following the wrong paradigm of living.
There is a different way, a different model. The Life Transformation Paradigm helps you find peace and happiness first so that the other things everyone wants more of, including you, can be obtained with much less effort and stress. The Life Transformational Paradigm turns conventional wisdom on its head. First you find and enjoy peace and happiness, and then you can live the life you are designed to live. You are designed to live happy and at peace, healthy, long, and prosperously. This book is about this model and how to work with it so you can start living the life you are designed to live.
