I'm a recovering English major and a reformed reporter who enjoys making up stories much more than writing about real life. I write sexy series that combine heat with heart. The Salon Games series (BY PRIVATE INVITATION, NO RESERVATIONS, upcoming OVER EXPOSED) and AN INDECENT PROPOSITION are contemporary erotic romances. I also write five paranormal erotic series: Magical Seduction, Lucani Lovers, Forgotten Goddesses, Darkly Enchanted and Lovers on the Fringe. And I write the straight contemporary romance series, DeMarco Investigations.
I'm happily married to a Springsteen fanatic and I'm the mother of two sons who love me even when they don't have any clean clothes and dinner is whatever they can find in the fridge.
The first novel in a steamy spin-off series from the national bestselling author of the Salon Games novels...
On the surface, Sebastian "Baz" Valenti is a rock god with the lifestyle to match. With his drop-dead gorgeous looks and his band, Baseline Sins, at the top of the charts, he can have any woman he wants. But the constant touring and recording has taken its toll. Now he’s turned to scoring films, a gig that has introduced him to the one woman he really wants but can’t have...
Trudeau Morrison is all business all the time. As the managing director of ManDown Films, it’s her job to keep Baz focused on business too. It’s not an easy task, considering Baz has made no secret of his desire for her. But Tru doesn’t want to get involved with a rock star, even if he is the hottest man she’s ever met.
Trouble is, once Baz gets an erotic taste of Tru, he’s not going to give her up. Now he just has to show her that rock-steady is nothing compared to rock and roll...
