JORDAN

I stood in the centre of the nose-bleed section at the top of the arena. From here I had a good view of the stage and crowd.

Glancing first off to one side, then the other, I confirmed the requested arena security were in place. Two men at the back with me, two women positioned at the front of the stage watching the audience closely.

I hated gigs like this, and Allison – my boss, knew it. The last thing I wanted to do was babysit a diva rock star who was full of self-importance with his head stuck in the clouds.

Six weeks. Six fucking weeks of strobe lights, deafening music and screaming, unpredictable fans. How the fuck were we supposed to detect any threats and prevent someone from being killed?

When I’d met Dallas Munroe yesterday, my judgement about people in show business hadn’t been wrong. To say he was full of himself was an understatement. So why was I so fucking attracted to him? He wasn’t my type and one only had to pick up any tabloid to find pictures of him being drooled over by some woman. Women I had no doubt he sweet-talked into his bed at every opportunity. Yep, he was as straight as a fucking arrow.

When the crowd began chanting his name, screaming and shouting, there was no doubt the band had just walked on stage. The noise in the arena was deafening. Straightening my stance, I snapped my attention back on the job.

Dallas had a presence on stage which the other band members didn’t have. He oozed sexiness and charisma, dressed in ripped jeans and a white wifebeater which clung to him like a glove, showing off his broad chest and muscular arms.

Ha! If only his fans knew what an arrogant prick the man really could be. Wearing a huge grin on his face, he waved to his adoring fans before performing moves which sent them wild as he moved to centre stage.

The other band members, who I’d been introduced to earlier in the evening, took up their positions.

About the Author

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia and retired after 37 years of Nursing.

My husband of 45 years, together with our elderly Jack Russell Terrier and extremely opinionated 26-year-old Cockatiel, enjoy holidays and travelling.

When we are at home, which is a small rural village, we spend our time renovating our home.

I write a variety of stories including Western Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Male/Male, Ménage and Shapeshifter.

Each book has a strong focus on story line with romantic interest building throughout.

I explore real life issues from kids on the streets to motorcycle war and put my own twist on each one.

Ex military body guard and a rock star, both Alpha males garnering unwanted female attention. The chemistry fairly sizzles off the page. Dallas has a death threat and Jordan is thrown into the celebrity world as his bodyguard.

I enjoyed travelling my country through the pages of this book. Watching these two break down walls to be together. Meanwhile the mystery of the threat lurks in the background. A sneaky peek at characters from another series which you will enjoy reading too.

Great story, I loved it.

I fell in love with Jordan and Dallas. Their relationships and personalities were so different yet perfectly matched.

The Who-done-it perspective of the book had me turning pages and the descriptions of different places in Australia made me want to book a flight. Absolutely wonderful story!

Recommended and rated this book

As a fan of rockstar romances there was much that was familiar about the danger and the overall vibe of the music world. What set this m/m romance apart though was it’s Australian setting, which added a bit of the exotic to the story. Through Ms. Horsnell’s vivid depictions she pulled readers into the lushness of the country, and with characters from another of her series, there was also a familial feel to the story. Add in a bit of suspense courtesy of a crazed fan and you’’ll be frantically turning the pages to reach the conclusion. Jordan Phillips is a commanding former military man who becomes the bodyguard of rockstar Dallas when his life is threatened. He’s a sexy and strong-willed alpha hero who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. He doesn’t coddle Dallas like so many others do which makes for a sizzling connection between the two of them from the very start. Dallas Monroe’s on the cusp of a music tour of Australia when danger comes calling. He may not take it seriously at first but before long the danger becomes all too real. Luckily he has Jordan by his side, and in his bedroom, as he becomes more than a job to Jordan in a sizzling m/m romance that lit the pages on fire. Dallas is immensely appealing and I became very protective of him as readers were introduced to his dysfunctional family, a family who made his childhood hell and made me want to hug him. As a rockstar his time on stage was exhilarating, and it added to the overall exoticness of the story, a it brought out a commanding side to him too. When it came to the suspense, I thought those elements were held in the background more than I’d hoped for. What was there though was well-done and kept me on the edge of my seat. The moment Jordan and Dallas met it was clear they were meant to be, their introduction was combustible and made for many sizzling encounters throughout the story. In their relationship they were mostly equals, but there were times too where I felt Jordan was more dominant. No matter who took the lead though I found them a decadently delightful couple who I was rooting for every step of the way. Alongside this appealing main couple were characters from Ms. Horsnell’s Outback series which was a nicely added element that gave a familial vibe to the story and makes you want to read their stories too. On a whole I enjoyed the rollercoaster ride of emotions found amongst the pages as I was pulled in wholeheartedly to the balance of romance and suspense this author crafted.

Rock Me Longer

I might own the stage,

but no one owned my heart…

until I laid eyes on her.

Burk Jennings had everything a man could want—houses, cars, and an endless supply of willing women. As lead singer of the iconic rock band Licks of Leather, he’d been blessed with fame and fortune. Still, he was restless, struggling with burnout, and pondering hanging up his microphone for some peace and privacy.

Sofia Jackson grew up poor and fast. After clawing her way out of the gutter, she worked diligently to earn a killer reputation in the music promotion industry, ensuring no one would ever have the power to drag her down again. Work was her life, which left her no room for frivolous fantasies, especially those about Burk.

But their forbidden fantasies can’t be contained, and their passion combusts, consuming Burk and Sofia. When secrets are spilled and trust is broken, will betrayal destroy them both?
