Josselyn has just spent the last three months in intense Line of Defense training so she could join Malcolm’s search party.  Little did she know the archangels had no intention of letting her bring back into Heaven an angel who had opened a portal between Heaven and Hell, at least not before saving God’s creations from the tight grasp of Lucifer first.  Three months have passed since the angel Rhyan released nine repented demons from Hell, and now innocent people are dying, but their souls are not going to Heaven. Josselyn’s mission is to find the demon
responsible for stealing the souls and bring it to justice before Lucifer gains enough power to rise and claim Heaven and earth as his own.  Her whole world is shaken when she discovers
what tool Lucifer is using to track down the one key to the release of his eternal damnation. Thoros is one half-souled immortal she prayed she would never see again. The ex-Prince of Lust had stolen her heart and crushed it with a cheeky smile. Now, not only is she being forced to put her damaged ego aside and face the only man that has ever hurt her, but she has to work with him in order to complete her assignment.

Is she strong enough to keep from falling in love with him again? Or is their love the only thing that can keep Lucifer from getting the one thing he wants most? Heaven.

Excerpt:

He shoved another armload full of socks and t-shirts on top of jeans in a duffel bag, then turned to walk to the bathroom to retrieve personal hygiene items. He barely glanced up to acknowledge Isaiah, arms crossed over his chest in a comfortable stance, leaning on the doorjamb.
“Going somewhere?” Isaiah asked coolly.
“As far away from here as I can get,” he responded from the darkened bathroom.
“You do know there is a meeting about to begin downstairs, right?”
Thoros nodded once as he re-entered the bedchamber, not bothering to look at the archangel. He tossed the items in the duffle with the rest of the things he would need for his extended journey. “I am aware of the meeting. I am also aware that she does not want or need me there.” He looked left then right, and then paused only another brief moment before zipping the bag closed and tossing it over his right shoulder. Thoros meant to walk through the doorway, but Isaiah stood upright and blocked the only exit with his body. Well, there was always the window. He thought about turning and diving through the glass and wondered briefly if he would clear the cement and land in the water of the underground swimming pool. The cement would hurt like a bitch. Hell, who was he kidding? The damn glass would hurt! He knew fleeting wasn’t an option. The angel would have already put a halt on that shit. Letting the pack fall to the floor, Thoros rolled his eyes toward the ceiling and huffed. “Out of my way, old man. She made it clear she doesn’t want me. If you didn’t hear her, I can give you a recap: it was a whole lot of ‘get lost’.” “Old man? I’ll have you know I look younger than you. Especially as of late. You should exfoliate more, and moisturize.”
“You knew what I meant.”
“That I am thousands of years old?
Yes,” Isaiah nodded as his lips pursed together. “I am that. That also means I probably have a lot of wisdom, and listening to me would more than likely be in your best interest.”
“Listening to you has done nothing but piss me off, angel.”
“You have to go with her. You have to know that it is difficult for her to trust you when she has thought all along that you’ve betrayed her.”
Thoros’ jaw locked down tight and he spoke through his teeth as anger burst from the depths of his half-soul. “Yeah, and whose fault was that? You could have told her at any time in the three months we’ve spent apart that I was the one who saved her. That I am the one she is destined to be with. But no, instead, you were a coward who let her dream day and night about going in search of the lost angel, a male fate never intended her to be with!”
Isaiah moved out of the way to let him pass and Thoros jumped at the chance, grabbing his duffle and rushing through the doorway. “I see. You are just going to take the easy way out? Never look back? Never see her again?”
“Oh, I’ll see her again,” he said, but didn’t bother slowing down or looking at the archangel. “I’ll see her every time I close my eyes.”
“She deserves for you to give her time, Thoros. If you truly love her, then you must know that walking away is not the answer to your problems.”
Thoros froze as his boot landed on the third step from the bottom of the grand staircase. Love. He allowed himself a moment to think about that word. His
skin flushed hot and his foot slipped to the next step, causing him to lose his balance and having to reach out for the banister to steady himself. He believed
she was his soulmate and that he wanted to be with her—but love? No. Love? Never. He had never been in love before. Was this what this horrible feeling was?
And what happened if the one you allowed yourself to fall in love with didn’t love you back? What the hell happens then? 
Right. Broken heart. That’s what the
horrible feeling was. Fan-fucking-tastic!
He had never expected to experience it before, but he never imagined it would actually hurt. He rubbed at the
center of his chest and fought the hot sting of tears that filled his eyes. He looked around him, all of a sudden dizzy. Wiping at the sheen of sweat that had
broken on his brow, Thoros swallowed hard and concentrated on calming the erratic beating of his heart.
“Do not give up on her. Your time will come, son.”
He turned around and looked to the top of the stairs at Isaiah, blinking the angel into focus. “And what if it never
does?” he whispered around the lump in his throat.
“You will know you tried and will never have any regrets where she is concerned.”
“I already have regrets where Josselyn is concerned. I regret ever having met her.”
Thoros turned and stumbled down the remaining steps, and then crossed the foyer and opened the front door.
“It’s for the best.”

Isaiah didn’t respond to his thought, so he took a step over the threshold and closed the door gently behind him.

A new cover for the the re-release of Brianna Hawthorne’s Fantasy…

Between Darkness and Light


Shi’ahn and her brother William find themselves transported into a realm beyond anything they could have imagined. Where they had once been powerful individuals, they are now almost inconsequential – at first. Soon though, they discover something monumental, and everything begins to change. Reality is not what it had seemed. As Shi’ahn and her brother follow where events are leading them, it becomes evident that both are destined for greater things.
Shi’ahn does have one advantage that is exceedingly rare – she can hear and manipulate the song of the Universe.

As Shi’ahn and William embark upon their new journey they must survive intrigue, danger, and their growing relationship with the foundations of the Universe itself.

This is the first book in the Universe Cycle.

Brianna Hawthorne has been a tree farm laborer, a choir director, a restaurant worker, a telemarketer (She lasted one day), a transportation planner, a small business computer support worker, a printing specialist, computer help desk technician, a firewall and server administrator, computer security manager, an emergency preparedness coordinator, and now, finally, an author. It’s been one heck of a ride…

But the stresses of her profession and all the political. stuff it entailed eventually drove her to write. After many more years and frustrations, she ran away to the mountains where, aside from trips to the Island that inspired the creation of Shiral, she wishes to remain until the end of her days.

Before the responsibilities of parenthood overtook her, she loved to play role-playing games and being a weekend historian in the Society for Creative Anachronism. Now she concentrates on providing the healthiest home environment for her family as possible. She enjoys growing her own organic foods and herbs, and listening to a wide variety of music.

{November 23, 2013}   Stuck

I’m stuck.  I have ideas that I want to write into stories.  I have so many thoughts running rampant through my head and I can’t concentrate enough to put them on the page so that they’re coherent.  It’s frustrating.  I’m whining about it, which I’m sure isn’t helping.  

I seem to be good at flash fiction…it’s like I can get out the first couple of hundred words then everything dries up…sputters out.  

Any tips on how to get your thoughts from inside your brain to the page would be welcome.  



I LOVE Regency. Another author to for me to drool over.

Excerpt:

The emergency board meeting called earlier that week warranted yet another discussion of damage control. Fifteen well dressed, educated, professionals gathered to name a new chair. They would soon discover the old head was not giving up so easily. David strolled into the board meeting as usual, but today was different. The room filled with subtle whispers and snorts. Bob Gunning, the board chair eager to stretch his authority, spoke. “Son, I believe you are in the wrong room. The unemployment line is down in the blue collar section of town.” The room filled with laughter as Bob’s joke resonated with the crowd. David squared his stance and reviewed the crowd with a hot glance. A sudden shiver filled the air as he retorted. “Quite amusing how you can point a finger in blame when in fact, all of you are fallen angels. Let me tell you how this is going down starting with you Bob.” The demon stared into their souls; his cold, steely, blue eyes surveying each of them and calling them out for what they truly were. “I will gladly expose the affair with the pool boy and not the one that your wife is having, I am speaking directly about you, Bob Gunning.” Suits and skirts squirmed at the revelation realizing that any of them could be next in his plan of exposure. Low rumbles and coughs escaped the guilty while the demon continued his rant. “As for the rest of you, I can tell all your dirty little secrets to the press and trust me I know everything. I can start with who’s been embezzling money from their own company and screwing not one but two of their assistants. Then there’s that matter of who forced the sister in law to abort a child that did not belong to her hubby and the almost drug overdose due to excessive orgies.”
