BLURB

Cord Spellman might be everyone’s Prince Charming, but I’m only his fake Cinderella.

Since my dad died and my mom bailed, I’ve been living in a trailer park, barely making ends meet. I can take care of myself, as demonstrated by my acceptances to a handful of elite music graduate programs. So what if funding my success has meant sacrificing my college social life?

That’s why Cord’s offer is perfect. The hot hockey star has playoffs coming up. He doesn’t have time for girls, especially his cheating ex who’s determined to get back together with him. He needs to focus on his game, so he asks me to divert the attention—as his fake girlfriend.

I pretend to be in love with him and get a taste of the party life before graduation. Cord is free to concentrate on hockey. But when the line blurs between what’s real and what’s fake, can we create our own fairy tale ending?

EXCERPT

“Thank you for sticking up for me.”
The way she says it, it sounds like it’s a rare occurrence, and I wonder exactly what this girl has to deal with in her life. I’ve seen her around and know she works at the library, but I assumed she’s like all the Chesterboro kids, raised wealthy or at least well-enough off. She certainly has the confidence of the rest of them. But Hannah looks like someone used to relying on herself.
I have the sudden raging desire to be someone she can lean on.
To avoid all that, I pop the trunk, slide out, grab her guitar out of the back, then slam the trunk closed. She joins me, hiking the same leather bag she’d carried on Friday onto her shoulder. “Have a good jam session.”
She wrinkles her brow and nose as if trying to figure something out. “It’s a composition class.”
“Writing?”
“No.” She laughs, and the sound hits me in the groin. “Music composition.”
“So writing music. Like I said.” She laughs again, and the sound makes me so happy, I immediately want to hear it again.
“Right.” She shrugs her guitar onto her back. I hadn’t realized the case had straps like a backpack. “Thanks again for the ride.”
“No problem.” I step back and clear my throat.
She grins. My gaze drops to her mouth, lingers. I stifle the sudden urge to step closer, to get into her space, to cover her lips with mine. She’s lovely, sure, but I’ve met lots of pretty girls. There’s something about her, though, a thread of steel that makes me want to learn everything she’s trying to hide behind her walls.
Except she said she wasn’t interested, and getting any closer to her isn’t an option for me. I’ve got playoffs coming, and it’s my last chance to impress scouts. My life doesn’t need any more complications. That means it doesn’t need Hannah Marshall.

“Monica said the dude was ogling you like you were a three-course meal and he hadn’t eaten in a month.” “Like I said, she exaggerated.” Right? Nope, I silently screamed to myself. I wasn’t going to start questioning it because it didn’t matter. Not at all. She looked at me, her expression pinched with skepticism. “Was she also exaggerating when she said she thought you’d stroked out for a minute and lost the power of speech when he came up and introduced himself to you?” I snorted and took a gulp of my margarita, smiling as I admitted, “No, she might have been spot-on with that one.” Luna’s head fell back on a laugh. “At least you’re willing to own it.” “It’s not my fault! There isn’t a woman on the planet who could help it,” I exclaimed. “I mean, the dude had dimples, for Christ’s sake. Dimples.”

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all. Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says. In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand. Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Rock Star Romance Series by Erika Kelly

Series: Rock Star Romance Series
Author: Erika Kelly
Genre: Rock Star Romance
Release Date: July 15, 2021
Cover Design: Serendipity Formatting





You Really Got Me is a slow burn, friends-to-lovers, rock star romance with explosive sexual chemistry and a soulful rocker who falls for his bandmate’s sister. “Slater Vaughn might just be the best book boyfriend I’ve ever come across.” – Obsessed with Romance
I Want You To Want Me is a slow burn, enemies-to-lovers, rock star romance about two people who’re bad at love but want to be good for each other. “This is one hell of a book. I just couldn’t put it down. This is definitely a MUST READ!!”
Take Me Home Tonight is a slow burn, friends to lovers, rock star romance about a vibrant, passionate woman who brings a wounded musician back to life. “The book is emotional and tremendously sexy— Kelly’s rendering of Calix’s grieving parents is particularly well-done — but it is Mimi’s strength that will linger long after the finish.” – Washington Post Best Romance Novel 2016
More Than A Feeling is a second chance, rock star romance bursting with off-the-charts chemistry and heat. “Absolutely loved it! I finished this book last night, but I’m still smiling this morning. It’s that good!”

If Emmie Valencia can get her brother’s band to the next level, her career will be set. So, if she has to live with five hard-partying guys, it’s worth the sacrifice. And the sizzling connection between her and the cocky, smoking hot, lead singer? Not a problem. She’s been there before and has the broken heart to show for it. She won’t make that mistake again.

Slater Vaughn’s not what he seems. Sure, he’s hot, he’s sexy, and no one can captivate a crowd the way he does. But there’s another side he doesn’t show anyone…except Emmie. She sees right through him, past the wounds, down to his soul. And once he falls, there’s no turning back.

So, it’s a cruel twist of fate that right when Emmie lets down her guard and falls in love, she scores a national tour for the band. They’re opening for the sexy, wildly talented, It girl of the moment. A woman so similar to Slater…it’s like they were meant for each other.

But Slater’s not giving up. He’s all-in. Which means, if Emmie wants her happy ever after, she’ll just have to take a leap of faith.





Even more than wanting to be a rock star, Derek Valencia wants respect in the music industry. But right when his band hits the big-time, the guys spiral out of control, and the record label threatens to pull its support. So, when their manager hires a minder to keep them in line, Derek’s pride takes a hit. Still, he can’t refuse the help, not when he’s this close to getting everything he’s worked so hard for. And he can’t help the blazing attraction for the babysitter he’s so intent on disliking.

What does Violet Davis know about love and trust? She grew up in the foster care system, shuffled from one home to another. But when she falls for the bass player in the band she’s been hired to look after, something changes in her. She wants him more than she’s wanted anything in her life. For the first time, she’s in love.

Derek’s finally found something that matters more than music—and he’s not letting her go. Not for anything.

But can a woman who craves stability really make it work with a man whose life is spent on the road with his band?




Calix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef.

Mimi’s temporary gig is great, but she has her heart set on auditioning for a televised cooking show. There’s just one problem: she only has a week to acquire the skills necessary to survive the competition. Luckily, the band’s new keyboard player can teach her exactly what she needs, in the kitchen and in the bedroom…





When Cooper Hood left Snowberry, Montana ten years ago, he swore he’d never go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band’s national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom’s got a whopper of a secret to reveal.

Daisy Charbonneau’s in trouble. The talent she hired for her resort’s annual Huckleberry Festival’s just bailed on her, and she’s desperate to find a replacement act. Luck turns her way when she discovers her high school crush is back in town — and he happens to be a rock star.

As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more — but who falls in love in two weeks?

Especially when Cooper’s never coming back to town, and Daisy’s never going to leave it.







Award-winning author Erika Kelly writes sexy and emotional small town romance. Married to the love of her life and raising four children, she lives in the southwest, drinks a lot of tea, and is always waiting for her cats to get off her keyboard.

Title: Hooked

Author: Emily McIntire
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2021


BLURB

Once upon a time, there was a little boy.
His belly full of laughter, his life full of joy.
Until one day something changed; stripped his innocence away.
The hole inside making space for the devil to come and play.
His dreams gone forever, he grew up way too fast.
An endless night of crocodiles and watches made of glass.
He grew into a villain, the taste of vengeance on his tongue.
Craving to make his enemies pay for the misdeeds they had done.
Instead he found a darling girl and refused to let her go.
For what better way to make a man pay, than to steal his little shadow.

EXCERPT

“Beautiful,” he says.

It’s one word, but it caresses me like velvet, my insides purring at his approval. “You too.”

He smirks. “You think I’m beautiful?”

His tone is playful, and it ignites that same foreign fire from the first night we met, when I wondered what it would feel like to be a different type of Wendy. My eyebrow quirks. “What, you think a man can’t have beauty?”

“A man can have many things, darling.” He steps in closer. “But the only beauty I hope to have tonight is yours.”

My stomach flips, butterflies bursting like a cannon. “Your mouth should be illegal,” I mutter. “So… where are you taking me?”

Angie laughs. “Who cares where he’s taking you, girl? Just go.” She makes a shooing motion with her hands.

James glances her way before resting his palm on my lower back. “She’s right, you know. You should relax, let me wine and dine you properly.” He leans in, his lips skimming the top of my ear. “And if you’re a good girl, maybe I’ll show you the real reason why my mouth should be illegal.”

Heat floods my body, swirling through my insides and pulsing between my legs. I huff out a surprised breath, my fingers pushing against his chest. “That’s extremely presumptuous.”

His eyes sparkle, his hand never leaving my back as he moves me toward the door. “Just letting you know what’s on the menu.”

He leads me outside to a blacked-out Audi. My hand reaches to grasp the handle, but before I can, he’s there, opening the door and helping me in. My heart skips. Such a simple gesture, but one that makes me feel special. Taken care of.

“I feel like I should be offended,” I say as he slides into the driver’s seat.

He grins, starting the car but leaving it idle as he twists to look at me. “Why?”

“You just told me to be a good girl, and you’d… you know.”

His brow rises. “I’m not sure I do.” He moves quickly, leaning over the console, his body crowding me until I press back against the seat. He skims his nose up my neck, and my stomach cramps so tight I lose my breath. “Because I want to put my mouth on you?” His lips dance from my ear down my jaw until they’re hovering above mine. My heart slams against my chest. I am so out of my element. “I promise you’d like it,” he whispers.

And just like that, his body heat disappears as he moves to his side of the car and reverses out of the lot.
