Resonance - eBook.jpg

Blurb

I gave the rumor mill fodder for a lifetime the day I walked away from a lucrative music career without explanation.

People can talk all they like; my record stores are my lifeblood now, and I’m devoted solely to keeping them afloat in the digital age. There’s just one little thing distracting me: an earth-dwelling sunbeam named Owen Harper. I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired him. In fact, maybe I wasn’t thinking at all.

Quirky and excitable, he’s a walking, talking danger to fragile objects. His energy alone could power a small country. That’s never been my style. Hell, I was probably cutting my first album while he was cutting teeth. He wants a music career, and I’m done with all that. We couldn’t be on more opposite paths.

He’s other things, too, though. Things that keep me up late at night. Things that make me forget I’m supposed to be simplifying.

And damn does he love to push my buttons.

Now I’m struggling to resist his pull, drowning in the memory of his skin under my hands, his mouth on mine. His laugh.

When a long shadow from my past comes calling with an offer I’d be stupid to refuse, there’s more on the line than the survival of the shops I’ve dedicated the last fifteen years of my life to.

Because those fragile objects I mentioned earlier? One of them might well be my heart.

Resonance is the second book in the Rhythm of Love series but can be read on its own. It’s a steamy slow burn bisexual age-gap, boss/employee romance with lots of banter and two obstinate heroes who really, really don’t want to want the very thing they both need.

Excerpt

Spewing that tirade at his bewildered expression felt good for all of a handful of seconds, long enough for me to leave the room, head down the hall, and straight out the back exit.

My stomach lurched as I scurried across the parking lot to my car, and I cast one last glance over my shoulder at the neon sign before tossing my case in the back seat and then sinking into the front and resting my forehead on the steering wheel. I blinked rapidly against the gathering sting in my eyes. Brush it off, inner cheerleader suggested cheerfully.

I groaned and the voice went silent. About damn time. I’d liked the Sparrow. Too bad I couldn’t show my face there again anytime soon. Probably ever.

I thumped my head against the wheel a couple of times and waited until the burn in the back of my throat faded before digging out my phone and opening my messages.

Owen: Done

Ru: How’d it go

Owen: I tripped running off the stage

Ru: Shit

Owen: But I didn’t wet my pants because 97% of the water in my body had already come out of my palms and forehead by then

Ru called me at that point, and I answered with what I thought might be a Guinness World Record–worthy sustained “fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.”

Ru chuckled good-naturedly, the jerk.

“I’m not really in the mood for vocal interaction right now,” I told him.

About The Author

FB_IMG_1567650711131.jpg

Neve Wilder lives in the southern US, where the summers are hot and the winters are…sometimes cold. She is a mom to three rambunctious weebeasts who have joined forces in a mission to carpet the family home with toys and small items that really suck to step on at six in the morning.

She reads promiscuously across multiple genres, but her favorite stories always contain an element of romance. Incidentally, this is also what she likes to write. Slow-burners with delicious tension? Yes. Whiplash-inducing page-turners, also yes. Down and dirty scorchers? Yes. And every flavor in between.

She believes David Bowie was the sexiest musician to ever live, and she’s always game to nerd out on anything from music to writing.

And finally, she believes that love conquers all. Except the heat index in July. Nothing can conquer that bastard.

I’m totally on board with this musical romance

Summer of HushSummer of Hush by R.L. Merrill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was in two minds about accepting this ARC request for a number of reasons, not least because it was about the metal scene and I’m seriously picky when it comes to that particular genre 😉 and also because I was a journalist who did a lot of music reviewing during my career.

But let me state here and now for the record that I’m fully on board with The Summer Of Hush because I really enjoyed this excellent examination of life on the road with a metal band.

There is a lot of depth to this narrative especially considering it takes place over a relatively short time period.

Both Silas and Krish are likeable characters and I loved that this was an interracial romance and that Krish’s Indian heritage wasn’t overlooked.

I will say that it didn’t hit 5* for me only because I didn’t really think the angsty bits for why they couldn’t be together actually made much sense.

And by that, I mean there was an additional weight given to the fact Krish hadn’t come clean about being The Guru that I didn’t feel was given enough time to sink in as to why it would be an issue – him being a sort of journalist, him not telling the truth when he found out Silas was a big fan – but they’d literally met like two days earlier.

The second reason was that it felt like I’d stumbled into a series without having read the other books, which isn’t the case as this is book one.

But there’s loads of background stuff which has happened and which is constantly referenced or coming back up in the plot that it seemed like I should have read a Prologue first.

Having said that, it never spoiled what was going on with Silas and Krish and it set up lots of possibilities for more books and yes, I definitely want to know what’s going on with Brains and Paul, as well as Jordan’s baby brother Jake and sullen guitarist Burke.

My first book from this author but not, I suspect, my last.

#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.

The past few years have been a bit chaotic for Cougars new associate coach, Lancaster Hart. After an amiable divorce he began living his life as the gay man he’d kept closeted for far too long.

With the recent move to Cayuga, he’s away from his support system and properly made sweet tea. Despite a roster filled with new friends and associates, he’s spending his nights alone.

As his team gears up to make a run at the Calder Cup, Lancaster discovers that not everything in upstate New York is wine, woodlands, and chilly conservative ideals.

At a summer music festival, he first lays eyes on Townsend Harris, folksy/blues singer by night and mayoral office assistant by day. Lancaster is enraptured with the man’s powerful sultry voice. Also, Town just might be the most beautiful man he has seen in all his forty-one years.

The two hit it off at an informal meet and greet after the show, where they spend the night talking and sipping wine. One evening of conversation and an incendiary goodbye kiss leads them into a scorching love affair that might be exactly what Lancaster has been searching for his whole life.

Can his team pull off professionally what he’s hoping to do privately as well? Or will capturing their dream evade both the Cougars and Lancaster?

Trevor Cover.jpg

BLURB

Trevor loves his life. He has a great family, amazing friends, his art, and the warm and inviting café where his creativity can come to life. His hard work has paid off, but something is missing. Despite his success, he feels tired and lonely.

Then a sexy stranger walks into the café, and into Trevor’s life.

Jordan’s dream has always been to be a songwriter and singer. Disillusioned, he walks away from his band to pursue his dream on his own. In Trevor, Jordan finds everything he ever wanted in a friend and partner.

Then Jordan is offered the deal of a lifetime. Will he choose love or success? Or can he find a way to pursue his dream without losing Trevor?

EXCERPT

“Can I help you?” Trevor asked while putting cookies and pastries in the cabinet.

A deep and soothing male voice answered, “I would love one of those.” Trevor turned to the customer who pointed at the pastries. “And a cuppa …” Trevor looked up into the warmest grey-blue eyes he’d ever seen. He was struck dumb. He usually prided himself when someone said a cuppa … and left it hanging as if suggesting he should give them free samples of his coffee creations, but all he could do was stare.

The stranger had to know his own sex appeal. It wasn’t that the guy was particularly beautiful, but he had a deep soothing voice, a carefree smirk and a twinkle in his eye, and scruff on his cheeks and chin. Sexy was a more accurate description.

Hmmm … Then, hearing a deep chuckle, Trevor unstuck his tongue and smiled at the newcomer. He grabbed the pastry, plated it, and presented it with a flourish. He quirked a brow and asked, “Would you like to try one of our house blend coffees? Our latte that is to die for. Or perhaps a …”

The stranger put his hand up as if to stop Trevor’s speech. “What exactly is a cuppa?” He leaned against the counter case and pointed at the sign over the list of coffee creations.

Trevor took the opportunity to look at the stranger. Trevor was taller than most guys in the area, but this guy was at least six-four and it made Trevor’s heart race. He always liked his guys taller than him. It made kissing so much better. He loved to feel towered over, maybe a little dominated. This man wore a pair of faded jeans, a T-shirt with a flannel shirt open on top, and what looked like a guitar case tossed over his shoulder. Another weakness of Trevor’s … a musician. Holy shit. A fucking musician.

Laughing at the question, which Trevor got every day from new customers, he gave his explanation. “Well, when someone asks to meet you for a cup a coffee who knows if they actually drink coffee, you know? And no one asks people out for a cup of tea anymore, so it’s a ‘wanna meet and grab a cuppa?’ … Then people don’t feel obligated to get coffee specifically. What cuppa can I get for you?”

“Ah!” was all the stranger said. He studied the menu board, perusing the offerings. Trevor admired his long throat as he looked up. He tilted his head as if curious or fascinated and then he looked at Trevor and shrugged.

“I’ll try the house latte with no foam and extra sugar please, to go.” Trevor wanted to keep him talking, but more people were entering the café and he refused to keep the locals waiting.

“Coming right up!” Trevor went over to the machine to start the latte and couldn’t help but peek at the stranger who hadn’t moved but seemed to be studying the area. Trevor could tell by his expression he appreciated the laidback ambience.

“Would you like your pastry heated, sir?” Trevor inquired while putting the lid on the latte and handing it over to the man.

“No thanks, I’m good.” The stranger paid, left a tip in the jar, and left the bakery. The next three customers were regulars, so it took no thought to get their orders ready. With a friendly smile and some small talk Trevor served them and got them on their way.

He couldn’t help but wonder about the stranger. He’d have to keep an eye out for him. Trevor looked at the tip jar. He always thought a tip jar in the customer’s face was tacky, so he decided instead of tips to pay his employees more money per hour, so the ‘tip jar’ was there for fundraisers he promoted within the community, changing the cause a few times a year to spread the wealth. The customers seem to like the idea, so he kept going with it.

This month the fund raised money for the Medford High Art program at his old high school. He loved getting involved in the community and helping others, his parents were the same way and it rubbed off on him. Art and photography were his second passions. He loved to capture moments on film and recreate them or change their dynamics by putting them in a black and white background.

When Dana and Jacob came back from break he decided to catch one of his own before their next rush by running some errands. As he left the front entrance he heard the sound of a guitar strum coming from the picnic table he had out on the sidewalk. Sure enough, the stranger was strumming while making notes in a binder every so often and then trying what sounded like the same cords again.

Trevor wanted to go over to sit and listen, but he could tell the guy was busy and didn’t want to intrude. He went about his business and when he returned, the stranger was gone. Oh well, maybe I’ll see him again. I hope.

Shrewd Angel 400.jpg

Pax Polo is the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Correction: Was the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Now he sports a black eye and his bros have kicked him out of their band—three weeks before Christmas. It’s an unfamiliar kick to his over-inflated ego, but . . . whatever.

No problem.

Thanks to some stellar eavesdropping, an unexpected angel ornament, and a bribe to open for his favourite band ever, Pax will weasel his way back into his mates’ good graces.

All he has to do is friend Clifford, the neighbourhood man-shrew, for the summer. Distract him a bit so Clifford’s younger sister can sneak around.

It sounds like a piece of beginners Beethoven. Jolly good fun.

Easy.

Because, Pax totally knows how to friend people. He has heaps of friends. This shrew’s no match for his shrewd ways. Or is he?

The Christmas Angel Series

In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.

Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas angel through the years.

Whether it’s 1700s England (Eli Easton’s Christmas Angel), the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding’s Summerfield’s Angel), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk’s Magician’s Angel), World War II (L.A. Witt’s Christmas Homecoming), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker’s Soldier’s Wish), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday’s Shrewd Angel), or 2018 (RJ Scott’s Christmas Prince), the Christmas angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.
