Can love redeem a monster? The Refuge is home to some of the most violent beings in the universe. Kralj, its leader, reigns over the remote outpost with terrifying ease, ruthlessly squashing any rumors of rebellion, killing anyone who breaks his rules. Primitive, deadly, powerful, he’s a monster, scarred both on his face and his soul. He has never met a being he couldn’t control. Until he meets her. Dita has one mission—to kill the three targets claiming sanctuary within the Refuge. Or so she claims. For the first time in his long lifespan, Kralj isn’t certain of another being’s intentions. The tiny assassin is immune to his powers, her thoughts unreadable. He can’t predict her movements, can’t control her, can’t stop wanting her. Dita is rare, as unique as he is, and, to keep the residents of the Refuge safe, Kralj will have to kill her. But first, he’ll touch her, taste her, show her how passionate the beast inside him can be. Dark Thoughts is a STAND-ALONE SciFi Romance. The hero might be tall, dark, and scarred but don’t be fooled by his appearance. He’s truly a monster. This story is not for readers with delicate sensibilities.

Secrets are little time-bombs just waiting to explode.  After six years and too much self-recrimination, rancher Mitch Landry is ready to admit he was wrong. He’d been in love with Olivia Montgomery but he hadn’t been ready for the lifetime commitment. That was his first mistake. He’s divorced his second. He’ll not make the same mistake twice and he’ll do whatever it take to convince Olivia to give them a second chance. Through hard work, determination and more than a few tears, Olivia Montgomery survived the break-up with the love of her life. She’s rebuilt her life around her business and the son she loves more than life itself. She’s not proud of the mistakes she’s made—particularly the secret she’s kept—but when life serves up manure, you use it to mold yourself into something better.  At a hot, muggy Dallas wedding, they reconnect. Olivia’s first instinct is to play it cool, but after one devastating kiss things quickly flare out of control. A quick night together should dampen those flames but instead only feeds the fires burning and now she’s left trying to protect the secret she’s held on to for all these years.

Cynthia Steffe Launches C.S. Roberts Collection

Cynthia Steffe is making another comeback.
The designer, who previously built a $ 30 million-plus wholesale business selling her contemporary line to stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, is getting back into the contemporary sportswear game with a new collection called C.S. Roberts.
Steffe, who lost the rights to her name to Bernard Chaus Inc. which still manufactures the Cynthia Steffe line, is married to Rick Roberts and will use his last name in the new venture. Steffe continues to be known as Cynthia Steffe personally and professionally.
The collection, which launches for spring, is novelty-driven. “It’s very much what my signature has always been. It’s soft and colorful and probably where I would have taken the Cynthia Steffe collection,” said Steffe in an interview in New York. There’s a large emphasis on dresses and blouses, as well as bottoms to work with them. “It’s lifestyle-driven and has an ease to it,” she said.
Steffe said her core customer is a woman 35 to 50 years old who loves fashion, doesn’t work and likes to shop. She is targeting department and specialty stores with the line and will show the collection to buyers next week and at Coterie this month.

“Now a new generation of readers can discover the magic of Cynthia Wright, and the rest of us can fall in love all over again." – SUSAN ELIZABETH PHILLIPS , #1 New York Times Bestselling Author “Looking for a hero to sweep you off your feet? Look no further…” ~ Kathe Robin, ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE In 1864 Columbia, California, the gold rush is over. Spirited Katie MacKenzie helps her father run a saloon and writes articles for the local newspaper about the Griffin, a Robin Hood-style highwayman who robs the unscrupulous mine owners and gives back to the townspeople.  Roguish Jack Adams, an adventurer with a dark secret, rides into the sleepy Sierra town one summer day and changes everything. A powerful attraction smolders and burns between Jack and Katie despite their efforts to resist, but when a tragic death occurs during one of the Griffin's stagecoach robberies, Katie is haunted by thoughts of revenge.  Can Jack reconcile his life in Columbia with his surprising true identity in San Francisco… and will this couple find their way to happiness in spite of the dangerous secrets that separate them? Journey back to Civil War-era California with Jack, Katie, and historical characters like Samuel Clemens for a passionate & adventurous romance that will keep you turning the pages to the very end!

Cynthia Vincent Latest Designer to Partner With O’Neill

PRINT PLAY: The tribal and floral prints Cynthia Vincent is known for will soon be on the wetsuits and swimwear of O’Neill.
It’s the surfwear brand’s second time partnering with a designer and follows the rollout of fall pieces done in conjunction with Anna Sui, which hit stores a few weeks ago and saw quick sell-through on pieces such as a cream-colored kimono and crochet bikini.
“We’re really careful to partner with someone who will elevate our current looks,” said O’Neill women’s design director Rachael Hill. “There’s definitely synergy there. [The designer collaborations are] not necessarily a departure for us as much as it is an expansion and kind of captivating another customer we wouldn’t get otherwise.”
The collection for summer 2016 is expected to hit retail in April and is organized into three categories: sportswear, retailing from $ 59.50 to $ 99.50; swim, ranging from $ 46 to $ 110; and wetsuits priced between $ 140 to $ 200.
The company’s now turned to its holiday collection, which will also infuse designs from Vincent and could possibly include party dresses, chunky sweaters and giftable items, such as cosmetic bags or footwear. However, Hill said the collection is still in its early stages.
Additional designer collaborations are possible for the future

Cynthia Rowley – a Force to Be Reckoned With

Paradigm Shifters is a series of interviews with a select group of women from eclectic walks of life. It will highlight real life insight on how women have been able to turn weakness into strength. Each interview is the naked truth about breakdowns that inspired breakthroughs. These women have experienced internal changes, which make them quintessential Paradigm Shifters.

Everything I have ever done has been focused on this underlying theme of shifting the paradigm because “what we think determines what we feel and what we feel determines what we do.” Hence why Seven Bar Foundation and Empowered by You takes lingerie, which has traditionally been seen merely as a tool of seduction, and makes it a tool of empowerment.

I hope after reading these stories you will look at your own situations, struggles and accomplishments through a different lens and, at the very least, be better equipped to change your own paradigm. At the end of the day, we are our own Alchemists turning the silver we were born with into the gold we are destined to become.

Cynthia Rowley – Critically Acclaimed American Fashion Designer

You originally were at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago studying painting. Then you made a shift into the fashion world, what was that shift like?

Yes. I grew up in a family of artists and it seemed inevitable that that’s what I would do. To make art seemed like the natural progression. But, I wanted something a little bit more structured and I naively thought fashion would be that thing.

What’s something that you have to consider now that you never thought you would?

At the time I had nothing to lose. When you have nothing to lose, you do what you feel without any outside influence. Now, I have responsibility, but I feel it’s still really important to take risks and to be as original and authentic as possible.

How long do you think it took you to finally make it?

I don’t know — in many ways I feel very thankful for what I’ve accomplished, and yet I still feel like I have so far to go and I’m just getting started.

You went from Chicago to New York. Who gave you your first break?

Well, there’s a famous story about this woman who stopped me on the train from a department store in Chicago who asked me about this jacket I was wearing. In that “fake it til you make it” mentality, I said, “It’s mine, I’m a designer” and she was like, “Be in my office with your collection.” I sewed all weekend and made five things, brought it to her office, and she was like, “What’s the style number on that one” I said, “One.” “What’s the style number on that?” “Two.” After she had asked me for something — I don’t remember what it was — I finally said, “Okay, I have to confess. I’ve never done it, but if you give me the order I promise I’ll stand by it.” So, she serendipitously introduced me to the world of being a designer. There’ve been a lot of people along the way, but it’s not that somebody takes you under their wing, it’s more the way you see things. For me, it was my own sort of pathological optimism that made little encouragements along the way feel like someone was pushing me.

Was that what kept you going, regardless of all the “no’s”?

Definitely. I just think that I would always think everything was going to be okay. I think a lot of people don’t realize how many “no’s” you’re going to get and how many roadblocks there are along the way. You have to steamroll over them and be in a state of mind in which you aren’t discouraged. Try to find the good in everything. The “no’s” never go away, it’s not like there’s a yellow brick road of “yes’s.”

What are the key components in being a successful entrepreneur?

A lot of risk-taking, having a vision and being able to execute it. You have a short-term vision and a long-term vision. You really have to have that scope and be able to execute it over and over and over, every single day. A lot of people imagine that critical success goes hand-in-hand with financial success. You have to be able to sort that out in your head early on so that you’re not intoxicated by your social or critical success and forget about the bottom line. Financial success needs to be coupled with happiness, that you’re doing something worthwhile. You have to have your head screwed on straight. It’s easy in a creative discipline to say, “Wow, they love me,” but what does that mean ultimately?

Was there a breakdown to breakthrough moment for you that you can remember?

It never is just going along and then disaster strikes; it’s the little things that happen everyday. I’m constantly confronted with a problem and have to find a solution. But, I will say that when I was in school, it seemed like the way it was supposed to be done was you have the creative person and you have the businessperson. I spent a long time thinking I had to find that person. When I moved to New York, I had a breakthrough when a friend of mine in the financial world said, “Why don’t you do it yourself? It’s your company and you should be able to know what’s important on the business side.” It was like a frying pan over the head! Every step was a major eye opener. It’s taken me a long time; the first ten years I was learning the basics. But still, in that time I was transforming into the person I am.

What advice do you wish to give to your younger self?

Buy stock in Apple Computers.

What kind of legacy do you wish to leave behind?

Try something new. In work. In life. In everything you do. The more frontiers that have been broken, the more challenging it is to find new arenas to explore, but being a little scared all the time is always better than being complacent.

With Cynthia’s genuine approach to life and success, it is clear to me why she is a household name. What a testament to tenacity and being true to self. Cynthia is inspiration on legs. We are fortunate to have someone as fierce and humble as her leading in the fashion industry. I have been shifted.
