Cassian Anders will be the youngest governor in Illinois history… If he wins.

That’s all everyone seems to talk about these days. Jolie Coldwell isn’t one of them. As a journalist, her priorities comprise digging up dirt on crooked politicians and local cover-ups.
When her latest exposé on a congressman lands her in hot water, her days are reduced to covering the senior center’s casino night.

Unexpectedly, news breaks: the on-air investigative segment needs a replacement. This promotion advance could her career.

She needs a breaking story. She needs it now.

The road to office is ruthless compared to the courtroom. Without warning, Cassian Anders’ popularity rating falls, threatening his position on the ballot. He will do whatever it means to secure votes. Now, not only is he engaged, but he’s getting married to his non-existent fiancée…

He’s never relied on luck, but when a convenient but unorthodox wife falls into his lap? He makes her a deal.

He needs a wife. He needs it now.

Will Jolie and Cassian be able to fool the public long enough? Can she handle the public poking around in her past, one she would rather keep under wraps… Above all, can she be a model first lady or are they destined to be a scandal?



“You wanna know why I am running for governor?” he began.
“I’ve sat. Watched. Defended in the courtroom, the very people this state is supposed to protect. I’ve been in the trenches with you all.” He pointed to the crowd. “I’ve seen the disadvantages in working-class neighborhoods compared to the elite on the Gold Coast and Millionaire’s Row. I’ve seen families struggling to make ends meet, and youth struggle to stay out of street violence.”

Cassian paused for a second.

“Everything we care about is under siege by Governor William Radcliffe.” The crowd booed. “Our very identities do not fit in the governor’s plan, nor will they ever. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Englewood. Chicago’s murder capital. I’ve experienced poverty and crime, and I know the beauty there. I see amazing potential if we were to invest in the people there, not ignore them like Governor Radcliffe has.”

 A calm, collected feeling rolled over Cassian’s body, obliterating the nervousness he’d felt. The crowd watched him with anticipation. It thrilled him. Fueled him.

The crowd roared.

“Illinois is losing jobs and opportunities. Creative minds.
The fiber of our communities. If we continue to let Governor Radcliffe lead, there won’t be a state for us to call home.”

Cassian looked down in the crowd. He shouldn’t have noticed, but he did.

In the center of the room, he spotted a woman. A beautiful woman.
As they locked eyes, he recognized her. Jolie Coldwell. He couldn’t forget the fierce reporter.

He observed at her closely, his practiced speech faltering.
She wore a pure white, double-breasted blazer dress. From his position on stage, he could see it stopped mid-thigh, showing off the sexy, thick brown thighs. The dress wrapped around her curvy silhouette with decorative button details down the front that led up to her tasteful cleavage.

Jolie lifted her chin, meeting his gaze straight on, a small smirk on her lips. That’s when he realized he had stopped talking. Clearing his throat, he returned her steady gaze, and something intense flared through him.

“I’m not here to only make history. I’m here because I love the people of this state. I want to remind everyone We Are The Change.”

Thunder with a Chance of Lovestruck
(Grimm Cove Book 5)
by Mandy M. Roth
Genre: Paranormal Women’s Fiction, Romance Novel

When Detective Drest Bright meets his newest charge, sparks literally fly. There is no denying the instant attraction he feels for Rachael Frankenstein. But she’s off-limits, and he knows as much. Her family has been a thorn in the side of the Nightshade Fae Hunters for over a hundred years, and they aren’t about to let him run off into the sunset with her without a fight. But if it’s a fight they want, it’s a fight they’ll get because this lovestruck Fae will do anything he can to be with his mate again.

Author Interview:

Q: Can you tell us a little about your newest release, Thunder with a Chance of Lovestruck?

A: I’d love to! Thank you for asking! Thunder with a Chance of Lovestruck is the fifth book in my Grimm Cove series. It follows the nearly forty-year love affair of Detective Drest Bright and Rachael Frankenstein.


Q: Frankenstein? Like Mary Shelley’s classic tale? 

A: Yes! Exactly like that! I took inspiration from Shelley’s work because I have a deep love for her novel. Rachael is a descendant of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. In my books, the Frankenstein family has been under the watchful eye of the Nightshade Fae Clan. They’re known for policing supernaturals. They imposed sanctions on the Frankenstein family after Victor created a monster and brought it to life.

The Nightshade Fae strictly prohibit any kind of romantic relationship between their Hunters and their chargers. Since Drest is Rachael’s assigned Hunter, no hanky-panky is allowed between them. Spoiler alert: there is totally hanky-panky between them.


Q: What part of the book was the most fun to write?

A: I loved getting to write scenes with the villain. I’ll often go back in when the book is at the halfway point to make a villain even more wicked. It’s also fun to write scenes that include characters from previous books in the series world. I like to do updates about them this way.


Q: How much research did you need to do for your book? 

A: There was a ton of research that went into it, but I love doing research, so I don’t mind. If anyone is interested, I have the sources I used listed on my website in a blog post.


Q: Why did the book order change for the Grimm Cove series? 

A: Originally, Willa and Jonathan Harker’s story was going to come after Starry with a Chance of Nightshade (book four), but that book took on a life of its own. By the time it was finished, it was painfully clear to me that Drest and Rachael needed to have their story told before Willa and Jonathan.


Q: Are Will and Jonathan still getting a story? 

A: For sure! It’s titled Wind with a Chance of Wolfsbane, and I’m hoping to release it very soon.
