Thianna D. is a writer by day and supernova by night. Or at least that’s what the faeries tell her. And who is she to deny those pesky *cough* lovely little creatures?
She lives in the Pacific Northwest, though her heart belongs elsewhere. In the meantime, until she can return to the place she calls home, she happily lives in a city that still thinks it’s a small town. Thankfully, it has given her muse lots of amusing places to start a story.
She is the M/F Romance with a hint of spice side of A Thia Thing.

Whyborne and Griffin, Books 1-3
on April 18, 2014
I rec’d these three books on Facebook as I reviewed them. I’m posting those reviews here almost in their entirety.
5 stars! I'm tellin' ya! You have to read this book. Suspense, mystery, M/M erotic romance, takes place in a creepy museum with an amazing cast of characters. A phililogist (Whyborne) who is shy and stutters and grabs your attention right off, his love interest (Griffin) who has his own sordid past and yet is a an amazing character, Christine the lone female doc who is trying to make it in a man's world and is Whyborne's friend, family secrets, a brotherhood cult, an evil genius brought back from the dead, and half human creatures that suck the blood out of their victims to survive.
Another rec! This time Book #2 Threshold of the Whyborne & Griffin series. Definitely 5 stars. Whyborne and Griffin, along with their feisty friend Catherine are in for a bit of a shock when they travel to Threshold to do a little work for Whyborne's father. Seems his mine is having 'problems'. These problems turn out to be creatures from outer space that look like HUGE crustaceans and spend their time cutting people apart and sewing them back together in unlikely combinations. Added to their fun is an ex-lover of Griffin's who isn't happy with Griffin & Whyborne being together, jealousy on poor Whyborne's part because the man's gorgeous, flirty saloon girls who adore Whyborne, people changing personalities overnight, people disappearing and reappearing as zombie-esque creatures, Pinkertons, a mine, creepy-crawlies, the chance to travel to other galaxies in a bodyless state, and Griffin and Whyborne having to hide their relationship by sleeping in different beds? And why aren't you reading it yet?
Whyborne & Griffin, best series I've read since I found Falls Chance Ranch last June...and in a completely different way. So, a HUGE 5 stars to Stormhaven, book 3. So, what happens in Stormhaven that makes it worth reading? Well, while in the other two books we had an evil sorcerer returned from the dead and curious aliens who had no respect for humanity, in this book we've got a lunatic asylum and a dweller in the deep (gotta love fish men). So, after a murder most foul which an associate of Whyborne's has been accused, Griffin takes the case, only to have to step into Stormhaven Lunatic Asylum to interview the accused. Not only does the asylum bring back memories he wishes were long dead, but he runs into the man who declared him insane. It's a race against time as Whyborne fights off dreams that are plaguing him from the dweller and Griffin tries to put on a happy front for his visiting family even as they work to try and prove Alan's innocence. For once, all their work may not be enough. Great story, fantastic twist at the end, men in dressing gowns, girls who hear voices, an annoyed Christine, a decision that must be made, things that seem as they are not, lots of Griffin/Whyborne loving, and new magic spells to explore. May 6th when #4 comes out cannot come soon enough.
Read this series! It's SO AMAZING!
Eidolon: A Whyborne & Griffin Short Story
on April 18, 2014
Just finished the Whyborne & Griffin short story Eidolon. 5 stars! This little gem is from Griffin's POV of their first Valentine's day...which is unfortunately interrupted by a new client, a talisman, and the fact it needed to be returned before dark or anyone in the vicinity of it could be in mortal peril. What a way to screw up the V-day Griffin had planned. And yet, the two find a way to make up for it. Sweet, hot, scary...a combination the author is really good at.
I suggest you read the other Whyborne & Griffin novels first. Though this does make a nice little romantic interlude...scary creatures and cackling old guys aside ;)
Heart of the Dragon
on July 13, 2014
I quickly became a fan of Jordan Hawk's with her Whyborne & Griffin series. I bought Heart of the Dragon on a whim- it sounded good. And wow, I am so glad I did. I'm quickly coming to the opinion that if Jordan L. Hawk writes it, I'm going to love it. I love all three characters, especially Kai.
The only downside? It was way too short :)
SPECTR: Volume 1
on July 13, 2014
A fan of Hawk's from her Whyborne & Griffin series, this one I looked at several times before I downloaded the first one for free. By the time the first book was done, I purchased this 3-volume set because yet. It's that good.
Artist Caleb who finds himself inhabited by a dragul, Special Agent John who can't help be attracted to the poor guy. He's also guilty because he feels at fault for what happened to him and his family. Add in ghouls, demons, a religiously insane group out to kill all 'mal's, government agencies, sex, and you have yourself quite the story.
Download the first for free if you aren't sure, but once that happens, I'm positive you'll be downloading this whole volume. And probably the next 3 in the series.
I'm hooked on Hawk.

Most books about the same characters tend to lose their sparkle. Somehow Jordan L. Hawk keeps each new book fresh and exciting. Hoarfrost, book 6 of Whyborne & Griffin takes our intrepid duo as well as Christine and her fiancé Kander to the wilds of Alaska. Why? To stop an ancient umbra from breaking out of its seals on the longest night of the year.
Once again Ms. Hawk sprouted an amazing story with twists and turns. This time, though, she did something a little different. While she has written short stories from Griffin’s POV, most W&G are from Whyborne’s POV. In Hoarfrost, she did alternating POVs between Whyborne and Griffin. I have to admit, I struggled with it. They were both 1st person POV and half the time I kept trying to figure out who was the person telling that particular part of the tale. That is the only reason this got 4 stars rather than 5. Because it continued to be confusing all the way through.
It’s still a tremendously wonderful story, though darker and less ‘fun’ than other stories have been. I found the same humor within Whyborne’s POV, but it was missing from Griffin, which makes sense because the man is still in a tremendous amount of pain from all the loss in his life.
I applaud this new character – the reverend who is also a member of an arcane order. I look forward to see what comes about with him. And, of course, the wedding of Christine and Iskander – surely that will be fraught with amusement, especially with Whyborne standing up with her! And lastly, does anyone wonder if Whyborne will ever figure out why Miss Parkhurst is so good to him? :)
I look forward to the next installment in Whyborne and Griffin. Even though I am sure they will be attacked with creatures unseen, hopefully it will once again be filled with the whit of one Percival Endicott Whyborne.
