    A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band’s publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

    What she doesn’t know is that David is a one-woman man...and he’s madly in love with her. David’s determined to prove he’s worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea’s about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

Excerpt: Rock Courtship (Book 1.5) A Rock Kiss Novel
“Beer—whatever you have on tap,” David said to the grizzled bartender and grabbed a stool, his eye on the rugby game in progress on the TV screen bolted above the bar.
He’d hardly taken a sip of his beer, the dark liquid bitingly cold, when he felt a presence at his back. Instincts honed by a childhood in one of the toughest areas of New York had him focusing on the mirror behind the bar to check out the situation before he turned. A big, bald, and heavily muscled male with a spiderweb tattoo on his neck was standing behind and just to the side of David, a smirk on his pockmarked face.
Belly heating, David turned with a slight smile. “Problem?”
The bald man bared his teeth and, laughing, looked to a table to his right. “Hear that, boys?” he called out to his friends. “The pussy rock star here wants to know if there’s a problem.”
Laughter and shouts from that particular table, while the rest of the men in the bar went quiet. David didn’t move, taking a measure of the players without letting it show. “Always know your opponent” had been one of the first things his father had taught him—Vicente Rivera didn’t believe in turning the other cheek; he believed in teaching his sons how to put bullies on the ground and keep them there.
“Yeah, there’s a problem,” the bald guy said, shoving at David’s shoulder. “This is a real bar for real men. Not pussies.”
Like that, then. Good. He was in the mood to do some violence. Lifting his beer, David took a long drink, then slammed it down… and punched Bald Head in the jaw at the same time that he kicked out with his foot to connect with the other man’s knee. The jackass went down like a ton of bricks.
Roaring in rage, the man’s friends came at David.
He grinned and started to show them what this “pussy rock star” could do.
It wasn’t until they’d broken a table and several chairs, and the bartender had called the cops that David realized Thea would have to deal with the fallout from this. Fuck, fuck, fuck, he thought as he was shoved into a cell alone, his erstwhile opponents in the cell opposite. Sliding down the graffiti-marked wall to the floor, he thought about the phone call the desk sergeant had said he could make and decided against it.
Fox had Molly with him—the band’s lead singer had been waiting for his girl to arrive since the instant Schoolboy Choir set foot in the city. As for Noah and Abe, they both had their own plans. He knew any one of the three men would drop those plans in an instant to come to his aid, but since the cops had made it clear he’d be spending the night in a cell no matter what, why mess up their plans?
“You do or say anything that’ll hit the media, you call me. Day or night. I hate surprises—so don’t you dare surprise me.”
Thea had given that order to all four of them when she’d agreed to act as their publicist. Her up-front nature and dedication to her job was part of the reason they’d hired her; Thea was the best and she didn’t take any shit from her clients. He wasn’t doing himself any favors by not calling her.
Right then, David couldn’t find it in himself to care. It wasn’t as if she could hurt him any more than she already had. And Jesus, how long was he going to carry this torch that was burning him alive? “Fuck, fuck, fuck,” he said aloud, banging the back of his head against the wall.

This story was such a feel good read from the beginning that I was smiling and loving it throughout the entire book.  The author has a way with developing her characters and creating a world that will keep you involved to the very end.  I loved the rocker theme and it just makes you think that even those who are in the "lime light" have feelings too.  Although I would've like to have a little more controversy woven into the story, this book was anything but loving and developed a wonderful inspiring story.  Way to move me, Nalini! ~ TSRBR

Would I recommend this author: Yes!  I have never read anything by this author, but she has a quality about her writing that intrigues me.

~Cover Reveal: An Indecent Affair Part V by Stephanie Julian~

Indecent Affair Part V 96dpi

Title: An Indecent Affair Part V

Author: Stephanie Julian

Date of Publication: October 14th 2014
About An Indecent Affair Part V:

Kat had seen it coming. She should’ve known better. A relationship with two men would never work. But she’d let herself hope. And now the pain of failure is crushing.

Tristan and Adam are trying their damnedest to make things right and win Kat back but family, work and the fraying of their once-solid friendship are taking their toll.

When the dust clears, will Kat, Tristan and Adam be able to rebuild? Or will everything they’ve worked so hard for come crashing down around them?

Available for Pre-Order!


“Did you enjoy being in the army?”

A flicker of surprise crossed Adam’s expression. “Yeah, I did. And I was good at it.”

“Because he’s a sneaky bastard.” Tristan deliberately needled Adam. “And he’s a decent shot.”

Adam’s mouth curved in a grin. “Better shot than you.”

Tristan rolled his eyes. “Now you’re just fooling yourself.”

Kat smiled, watching their banter as if it were a tennis match. Sliding off her shoes, she tucked her legs under her and leaned back in the chair. As she resettled, she noticed both men return their attention to her.

“How did you meet?”

Her curiosity grew, fueled by the interplay between them. They knew each other so well, they’d developed a shorthand. She wanted to learn it, wanted to be on the inside with them.

When Tristan smiled at her, she felt drawn inside that small circle.

“When the newly minted Second Lieutenant got assigned to my platoon.” Adam’s smile widened. “Fresh out of West Point and already a Grade-A prick.”

Tristan didn’t look at all offended by Adam’s dig. “I may have had a somewhat elevated opinion of myself at the time.”

“Lucky for us, you proved yourself in the desert.”

She knew they’d served in the Middle East for several years, but it had been more of an abstract concept than a fact. Now, her stomach clutched at the thought that one or both of them could have been killed. Which was ridiculous because they were here now. Safe and sound.

But would they always be?

“Can I ask about your work?”

She had their complete attention again, their focus a little unnerving. Adam’s so intense, Tristan’s so…inviting.

He nodded. “Of course.”

“We just need you to understand that we have confidentiality issues,” Adam interjected. “Just like you do with clients.”

She nodded. “I understand. So…what exactly do you do?”

“We run a private security firm.” Tristan’s tone implied it was that simple. Which she knew it wasn’t, thanks to the DeMarcos.

“Which means…”

Tristan paused to think about his answer, but Adam leaned forward, tapping his finger on the table to get her attention.

“Maybe you should tell us what you already know. Then we’ll fill in the holes.”

Would they understand that she’d had them investigated only because she was curious about them? And not that she was prying into their business? Was there even a distinction to be made there?

“I know you provide security services, but you also do something called kidnap and recovery.”

Adam’s eyebrows rose but he didn’t look surprised. “That’s not something we put on our website.”

“I didn’t get that from your website.”

“No, you had us investigated.”

Adam didn’t sound angry so she nodded. How would they take that?

A second later, Adam’s lips curled in a tiny grin and Tristan outright laughed.

“Good for you, sweetheart,” Adam murmured. “Another woman would’ve just taken us at our word.”

“I like to know who I’m dealing with.”

“Good policy to have.” Tristan cocked his head to the side then, his gaze narrowing. “And did you get the answers you were looking for?”

“Not really, no.”

Tristan spread his hands and leaned back in his chair. “Then go ahead and ask. Anything you want.”
