Thunder With A Chance Of Lovestruck

Book Five in the Paranormal Women's Fiction book series Grimm Cove® by NY Times & USA TODAY bestselling author Mandy M. Roth

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.

Paranormal Women's Fiction

If you love Frankenstein, Dracula, Gilmore Girls, and Supernatural, you're going to love the Grimm Cove series!

Author's Note:

It’s highly advised that, if you’ve not already done so, you read Starry with a Chance of Nightshade before continuing with this book. There are events and scenes that happen in Starry that impact this book greatly.

Drest and Rachael’s love story spans decades, a large portion of which takes place outside of Grimm Cove. I could have jumped right into the present day with them, but it would have denied you a chance to be there when their love first blossomed and to watch it unfold. I hope you enjoy this wild ride as much as I enjoyed writing it.

what people say

“Romance, villainy, death, monsters, magic and sex. It's all in here and given the gap between books it helps centre us right into the world of Grimm Cove and the interconnected lives of the powerful women destined to live there.”

Theresa, Amazon UK

Great writing, great story, and great characters what more could you need”

“Drest and Rachel's story broke my heart and then stitched it back together (not in a Frankinstein way of course...that's not allowed).”
