You know me. I love my rock stars. I love my romance. So much so that I spend my life dreaming up stories about rock stars and, you know, ordinary girls (like me, for example) and then writing books about it. Turns out I’m not alone with my particular affliction!
Not too long ago, I was minding my business on Twitter, as one does (actually, more like sticking my nose in everybody else’s business, but that’s what Twitter is for, right?) when I started chatting with Lisa. Lisa loves rock. Lisa loves romance. Lisa writes rock star romance. OMG! It was like meeting a sister that I didn’t know I had on the other side of the Atlantic!
So we started looking out for each other and chatting some more (it’s not as dodgy as it sounds, this is a strictly rock ‘n’ roll kind of relationship! Well, exactly!) and it turns out that Lisa is releasing an almighty rock romance box set this summer. In fact, it’s out now! So I’ve invited Lisa to tell you some more about it. Give it up for Lisa Gillis!
ABOUT THE D-STRING SET
Last summer (says Lisa) I debuted my new series Six Silver Strings.
The G-Strings Set starring Jack Storm, rock star, and single mom Marissa Dupleux won you over with a sinfully sexy yet moody musician, and a slightly star-struck heroine. Throw in a couple of dogs, a precocious toddler, sizzling chemistry between Jack and Marissa, and this cast is not easy to leave behind.
This summer I bring you the D-String Set and a whole different decade for your rock star reading addiction.
Matt Loren and Jules Breaux grew up on opposite coasts. However, the first steamy meeting between the two makes it more than obvious that six states wouldn’t have kept these star-crossed lovers apart forever.
Jules, daughter of two jet-setting parents, is a rebel, and a borderline alcoholic in the opening chapters. Matt, who turns up in Los Angeles to meet his estranged father, is responsible in every way. The two are drawn together by their love for music, and talent for composing it. In the creation of a band, they become fast friends-and just as quickly become more. They hide their steamy affair for the sake of the band. At least, that’s their excuse to each other and themselves. As the chapters move along, each have their own reasons for embracing a noncommittal relationship as tightly as they embrace one another when no one is looking.
This hot love affair, and the tension that comes with it, spans almost a decade during a time when saying “I’m sorry” wasn’t as easy as having a cell phone at the fingertips and time when keeping tabs on an ex wasn’t a social network page away.
The series is released as a box set, which means hours of uninterrupted summer reading ahead.
“How many times can I apologize?”
With the chair in her hand, and magazine in other, she couldn’t fend him off when he retaliated by pulling her back against his wet length, and by grabbing her. He couldn’t seem to get enough of the little bit of weight gain covered at the moment by her bikini top.
“Can I help it if I like your apologies?”
Jules tried to glare at him, but she couldn’t. The memory he’d just alluded to was only a few weeks old. They had been alone in his bedroom, and she couldn’t even remember what she had been sorry for. It had been something silly… just an excuse to goof off… to fool around… to go down.
The blush heating her face had to be visible even in the hot sun. Thankfully, both Candi and Marc were somewhere on a wave far behind them as Matt was just coming in from an attempted ride on the board. Several people were scattered on the beach, but seemed to be paying no mind to them. It was a good thing. Because Matt must have remembered the aforementioned apology in detail as soon as he said it.
“You have only yourself to blame.” Jules told him when she felt his plight.
“That’s just not true. I blame you. Surfing in your little bikini. Sitting here in your little bikini…”
His hands had dropped to her waist. Maybe in self-defense to remind her she was a human shield. Water dripped from his hair as he bent his head, speaking his seductive words right next to her ear. Seducing her in front of at least a dozen people, ankle deep in high tide, at high noon.
MEET LISA GILLIS
Lisa Gillis resides in Texas and often references this state in her books. Writing is a recent passion, and she strives in her books to blend a perfect mixture of fantasy and reality. Her love for music, bands, and concerts inspired her Strings Series. When she is not writing those little voices out of her head while listening to music, she is making her own noise on drums or guitar. You can visit her at http://www.rockstarreads.com/
