Meet the Characters of Thornwood Fae
Catherine prefers plants over people and would rather spend hours with her hands in the dirt. Neighbors have often remarked on her knack for growing things. But they couldn’t see the small fae creatures who visited her, and coaxed plants to grow to please her.
She’s learned to ignore the fae, but they never stopped visiting her. The ghosts were worse, whispering sinister secrets in her ears and now all she yearns for is a normal life…
Despite centuries of service to the thorn crown, Ray was cast out of Faery for one careless mistake. Admittedly, one that lost the princess. As a result, the Thorn Court turned their back on him, including his father. Embittered by his plight, he’s spent centuries in the human realm, under assumed names surrounded by humans he can’t bother to remember the names of.
The greatest risk to his life is dying of boredom. That is, until the most peculiar Lady Catherine arrives, catching not just his attention but a dangerous figure from his past. Their interest in Catherine can’t be coincidence, and Ray suspects she’s connected to the missing Thorn princess and his chance to return to Faery.

Convinced they are hallucinations, she ignores them. Then music lures her out into the misty forest, where she discovers a thorn covered door to nowhere, guarded by a handsome stranger, Ray Thorn…
Once a member of the Thorn King’s honor guard, now Ray lives in exile for treason and tasked with protecting the entrance to Faery. After decades in the human realm, faces, names, and years blur together. Until Lady Catherine accidentally summons the Thorn Door and he finds an opportunity to return to Faery…
Though she tries to resist, Ray tempts Catherine into the mesmerizing, deadly world of faery, upturning everything she believed, including how she feels about him. Torn between a desire for a ‘proper life’ and the allure of beautiful, wicked faery, Catherine must choose: will she follow her head or her heart…
