Another one set in the 80s! Susan’s gonna go nuts. She has a hard time believing they are over. Note from Susan: Untrue. Music’s better these days.</em

It’s 1983, Los Angles, and Trace Dellon, lead singer, knows exactly what he wants; the white heat of the spotlight. When his band, Black Light is offered a record deal, Trace grabs for it, eager to move up from their club gigs. He will do anything it takes to make it.

Asia Heyes, bass player knows what he wants too. It’s not the fame or the adoration of fans and groupies. It’s Trace. It’s always been Trace. Though it’s been unspoken between them- his other lovers-his audience-push Asia aside.

With the contract, comes Albrecht Christian into their lives. He is a man with everything but what he needs to live: the energy that runs just under Trace’s skin. But even Trace isn’t enough, and Albrecht finds himself starving

When everything crashes with a bullet, they all learn the truth. Rock and roll, like magic requires both love and sacrifice. Then Black Light’s fragile trajectory to greatness really begins.

So… love triangle!

What else is there to say? I strangely don’t see a lot of love triangles in Rock Fiction; I guess too many authors are considering the groupies or the music or the fame to be the third arm of the triangle. Not so much here, huh?

Will this reek of the eighties? Was it okay to be gay back then? (Yeah, Susan just groaned at me.) Seems maybe it’s a sensibility of the current times being slapped onto the past. I know a lot of people had trouble with it in Cherry Cox’s book, so…

Only one way to tell. Bring it on!


Well, right off the bat, this one’s different. See how?

It’s written by a man. Why is it that men don’t write romance more? They have no issues writing romantic songs.

So here’s what we’re drooling over today:

True love never ends … or does it?

Finally, Cody has a shot at superstardom.

But for this aspiring rock star, going for his dream means leaving Emma, the love of his life behind forever.

Will true love be enough to sustain them?


He’s a broke aspiring rock star scarred by his past.

She’s a feisty rich girl hiding a secret.

Opposites in every way.

But true love has a way of finding you.

A way of healing the broken hearted.

A way of giving hope to those who’ve given up on love.

So… what is it with vague back cover copy? Am I reading this right that it’s a triangle of sorts? He’s got to choose between his girls?

Works for me.

Bring it.


So here’s the cover for this one. Outside

Doesn’t look like Rock Fiction, now does it?

But here’s the description:

When handsome California surf god Lincoln Savage suddenly rolls into Ocean Beach like a rogue wave, shy beauty Simone Bianchi’s foundation is shaken. No longer under the thumb of her domineering father, she’s made a simple quiet life for herself and her fluffy fourteen pound Havanese pup running a surf shop in her hometown of OB. Long ago she gave up her dreams for a future with Linc.

But now the notorious lead singer of the Dirt Dogs has returned, and Simone is reluctant to admit that she’s still vulnerable to his killer dimpled smile and easy charm. She finds that although she’s stowed away the mementos, it hasn’t been as easy to erase the memories of their epic summer love.

It seems he hasn’t forgotten, either.

Is the recording contract he’s offering merely a pretense?

Or does he have something more in mind?

Does he really believe that they can just pick up where they left off, despite all the bad luck and heartache?

And is she willing to risk everything again for one last chance at love?

So… surfer god, or rock god? Can he be both?

Bring it. Bring it soon!
