Torie has loved reading since she was old enough to hold a book in her lap. While her friends were out playing, she was generally curled up nearby falling down rabbit holes, catching second stars to the right, and stepping through wardrobes into mysterious lands and countless adventures. When those stories ended, she made up her own and kept going. This later translated into a strong passion for writing that has helped her keep her feet on the ground while her head stayed firmly in the clouds. Lover of Dr. Pepper, all things chocolate, and Duran Duran, her dreams finally became a reality with the publication of Timeless Night, followed six months later by Timeless Desire, Books One and Two of her award winning New Camelot series.

You can also see her work in "My Bloody Valentine", an anthology published by Breathless Press in 2014.

Torie lives in Southern California with her family and a houseful of pets who rule the roost.

 One lost world. A dreamer full of secret sins. A man running out of options. Tick tock goes the tinker's clock when delusions mirror illusions.

Madly erotic and impossible dreams have turned Edee Carroll's waking hours into an embarrassingly nightmarish reality. Carnal passion and a curious nature lead her through the doorway of a doctor specializing in her
problem. There are some doors that should never be opened and when the road is paved with crooked desire and dangerous secrets, it doesn't matter which direction the truth leads. Time is running out and there's a thin line between satisfaction and suffering.


She smelled of pure arousal, the spicy scent filling his head with hunger and a potent need to devour her with greed. Oh, Harey had been right about this one. Despite her plain face and boyish body, she harbored a vast, untapped libido he and the others could live on for a couple years to come until nothing remained but the fragile husk of her delicate humanity. No mind, no soul, merely a vessel of hollow madness.

We're all mad here.

Thanks to her freakish, satyr-like power, Jessica Moore was denied her dream to join the Gryphons, the magical law-enforcement officers protecting humanity from the pred races. But after the Gryphons tried to arrest her for murders she didn’t commit, Jess is no longer interested. Too bad—they are.

Now that they know what she can do, they want Jess on their side. If she doesn’t agree to help them solve a new case, they’ll charge her with every magical crime she’s ever committed.

Nine people are dead. The cause? Exhaustion. The activity? Never-ending sex. Someone sold them tainted F, an illegal aphrodisiac made by satyrs. No surprise, Jess’s satyr allies aren’t pleased with her investigation. Worse, it strains her tenuous relationship with Lucen, the one satyr she counts as a friend.

As Jess delves into the shady satyr business world, she unravels a scheme more sinister than dirty drugs—and her relationship with Lucen unravels right along with it. Only the truth will save their friendship. But not before it turns Jess into an ambitious killer’s next target.

Warning: Contains blackmail, betrayal, and sex that’s literally to die for. Plus plenty of bad stiff jokes to go with it. Remember, just say no to magical drugs.

We start off DIRTY LITTLE MISERY with the Gryphons calling Jess in and blackmailing her into working for them. As you can imagine, not everyone in her life is happy to have her on the inside, and it just so happens that not everyone on the inside has Jess's best interest at heart. I thought that Jess handled the situation and being in the middle of two different worlds pretty well. It definitely isn't easy but she pulls through and everyone is better for it by the end of the book.

There are a lot of bombs dropped on Jess throughout the book. She knows a tad bit about herself going into the story but by the end she knows a whole lot more. It really throws her through a loop to learn how she gained her powers and who is behind her having them.

DIRTY LITTLE MISERY brings a little bit of a love triangle. We already know Lucen, but we are now introduced to Jess's new partner. Her relationship with Lucen isn't always easy for her so when her partner shows interest she questions what it would be like to be with him. I won't tell you what happens and who she is with in the end.  

I enjoyed WICKED MISERY so I was happy to get a review copy of DIRTY LITTLE MISERY. I had a few tiny issues with some confusing scenes in book 1 and I am happy to say that did not carry over into book 2. The action was intense and the danger and mystery behind Jess's case brought along lots of drama and suspense.

I gave it 4/5 stars
