Guys with Guitars by Olivia Cunning
I don’t know what it is about guitarists that I find so sexy. Perhaps, it’s the way they take charge of their instrument—fingers pressing flesh, I mean, strings firmly against a solid form. Maybe, it’s the passion they put into each note; each strum; each fingering.
It could be the release of creative energy flowing from their body while they perform.
Or that untouchable, element of mystery that surrounds them. An air of the forbidden.
Oh who am I kidding? It’s the whole package. I love guys with guitars. [Image: Guitar Hottie 1] My admiration for musicians began at an early age. Rock music has been a mainstay in my life for as long as I can remember. I can still remember Iron Butterfly’s In A Godda Da Vida throbbing through the entire house when I was a small child. And The Doors. Hendrix. Black Sabbath. The Eagles. Apparently, when you’re exposed to guitar-rich music as a toddler, it makes a lasting impression. I still can’t get enough of it.
In my debut novel, Backstage Pass, the hero is the lead guitarist of the fictional rock band, Sinners. Brian Sinclair takes charge of his guitar and makes it submit to his will. While, he presses his heroine, Myrna Evans, against his solid form (frequently) she doesn’t submit quite so easily. At least not emotionally. Physically, she’s all systems go and who can blame her? The man is delicious, and tender. Romantic. Creative... both on stage and off.
Brian definitely puts passion into each note he plays. Everything about this man is passionate. Myrna can’t help but respond to that passion, no matter how hard she tries to fight her affection.
Here’s Myrna’s reaction the first time she sees Brian perform on stage:
Myrna couldn’t take her eyes off Brian, not even to blink. She watched him stalk the stage, playing his guitar as if it were an extension of his fingers. It was almost as if he were making love to it. –from Backstage Pass
And later, when he dedicates a guitar solo her before a crowd of thousands:
Myrna no longer felt like she was standing in a jam-packed stadium. Brain was making love to her and recording notes on her body with a pen. On stage, Brian had his eyes closed while he played. Myrna felt a connection between herself and the man on stage. She wondered if he was thinking of her while he played for all these people. –from Backstage Pass What woman wouldn’t melt if a sexy rock star dedicated a unique composition to her? Brian is definitely full of creative energy and nothing makes it flow from his body like making love to uninhibited Myrna. The first time they get intimate, Brian composes a song on her naked body. The same one he dedicated to her on stage. And he doesn’t stop there. He composes song after song with Myrna in his arms. She’s his muse and he intends to make her his in every capacity.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the obsession of a sexy musician? Have you ever wanted to be included as one of the band and see what goes on behind the scenes? Just grab an all access Backstage Pass to the excitement, the fun, the passion and the emotion and go on tour with Sinners. Be prepared for a wild ride!
