A new adult paranormal romance.

Roses & Thorns, a Rose Trilogy short story, take us through Rose and Christian's whirlwind romance as they build the relationship that will see them through the difficult times that lie ahead.

Please note: Due to the age of the characters, foul language, and sexual situations, this book is not suitable for young readers.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


ROSES & THORNS is the perfect follow up to the first book in the Rose Trilogy, Scent of a White Rose. In this short but heart-warming novella we get a deeper look into Rose and Christian’s romance and how it all began. I love that we get both characters’ perspectives on their developing romance and how each interacts within their family circles.

While Rose and Christian’s love story touches your heart, the special bond between Rose and her mother Loraine is exceptionally touching. Tish really captures the love and devotion these two share and really tugs at your heart strings with her vivid writing style. Roses & Thorns moves at a quick pace but makes up for it with plenty of details that tie right into the original giving the reader a deeper look into the Rose and Christian’s bewitching romance!

If you’re a romantic at heart you’ll love this forbidden vampire romance filled with emotion and enchanting characters. ROSES & THORNS is a companion to the first book in the series but is so well written it doubles as a prequel (definitely can be read as a stand alone). One thing’s for sure, once you step into Tish’s captivating world there’s no going back!
