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 Her Hard

Title: Rock Her Hard
Author: Alyson Hale
Genre: Steamy Rockstar Romance
Editor: Brittney Coon
Jace:
I’ve done some stupid sh*t in my life, but this time I don’t know if I’ll be able to talk my way out of it…
When my band manager asked us to travel to the US on a personal errand, I never imagined I’d get caught up in a scheme to reunite a father with his estranged daughter. Our deal was I’d seduce her into coming on the road with us, and then he’d have a chance at winning her over and getting his family back. Getting Kyri Calloway’s attention was easy. Our chemistry was white hot the moment we laid eyes on each other. The only problem is it’s become so much more than that…
Kyri:
When I was called upon to serve the Filthy Bangers on my first night working at the pub, I thought it was some kind of cruel joke. Jace Hawthorne has been my fantasy for as long as I can remember. His deep, bassy voice and god-like body keep drawing me back in, even though I know falling for a rockstar is the worst thing I could possibly do. I know firsthand how greed and ambition can corrupt a man.
I’ll be safe from heartbreak if I keep all the romance in my life fictional. Jace feels anything but safe, so why can’t I stop falling back into his rock hard, inked-up arms?
NOTE: This 18+ standalone rockstar romance contains no cheating, a protective alpha male, and a guaranteed HEA–no cliffhangers!

Alyson Hale is a passionate contemporary/erotic romance author from the American South. Her weaknesses are rock stars, billionaires, and alpha males. She is married to a strong, stubborn family man who shows up in almost every book boyfriend she writes. Alyson is also a mother to one human child, one canine child, and one feline child.

Jace and I huddle into the corner booth on the same side, facing away from people. The privacy affords us the chance to really look at each other for the first time since morning. We’ve had such a busy day in Atlanta: sightseeing, making out, venue scouting, and more making out—in dark alleys, in the middle of a museum, in the privacy of the limo—everywhere. I feel like I’ve got a permanent imprint of his lips in mine now, which hopefully will help me cope when he’s had his fun with me and is no longer mine. In the dim lighting, his eyes are shadowed by his dark brows, which brings my attention upward to his hair.
So rich, so soft…
“You can touch it,” he mumbles, a smile growing on his lips.
I let my fingers sink into its dark thickness, and a spell overcomes me. The sweet, musky scent of his cologne and the smirk warping his lips intoxicate me, sending my hormones into a frenzy. He sees his effect on me and leans down, taking my lips in a soft, brief kiss before the waitress comes to take our order.
The waitress is a bit on the short side, but her hair is in a long ponytail and her body is very athletic. She startles when she recognizes Jace in the booth next to me.
“Holy…” Her breath comes out in a raspy rush. She clears her throat. “Uh, what can I get you two to drink today?”
“You got Bourbon?” Jace asks.
“Yes, Mr. Hawthorne.”
“I’ll take a maple-bourbon smash, please.” Jace buries his nose in the food menu, ignoring the silly grin on her face.
“I’ll have a strawberry daiquiri, please.”
“All right, I’ll have those right out for you.” The waitress turns around and I hear her squeal a little under her breath as she heads to the bar with our order.
I turn back to Jace, who’s still looking at the appetizers. The sight of his statuesque profile causes another flutter in my stomach. I can’t seem to calm myself around him. All I can think about is getting him naked inside a locked hotel room and finding out what sex with a rock star is like.
Something tells me it’s wild, unrestrained, and addictive.

“This series just keeps getting better and better…if that’s even possible. No one writes a rock romance like Ms. Jeanisse. She gives you the raw, gritty life of rockers who don’t follow the rules and she isn’t afraid to break your heart along the way only to put it back together again.” ~ Doris 
 
“Amazingly well written!!! I didn’t want the book to end!!!” ~ Amy
 
Zack stood next to a nearby table. He smiled at Abigail’s giddy expression. She was most definitely surprised. Her gift laid just in reach. He had hidden the small box in a pair of socks for the past week.
 
He’d planned to mail it to her. For a change, his usual procrastination worked in his favor. He hoped she liked it. Since he finally made good money, he’d purchased what had spoken to him.
 
“Hey,” Abigail said as she stood in front of Zack. “Did you help?”
 
He couldn’t meet her eyes, afraid that would portray his feelings. “Yeah. Happy birthday.” He reached over and lifted her gift. “I got you something.” When he turned, his gaze drifted to the new tattoo. Oh, fuck! He groaned to himself but hid it well. “That’s beautiful.” He stared at her cleavage. The tattoo was prominent.
 
“Thanks.” She threw her arms around him and cringed when her breasts pressed against him. “Was hoping you’d like it.” She pulled back a bit. “Should I open it now?”
 
Kyle appeared behind her and glared at Zack. “Food’s ready.” He waited until she let Zack go. “Your dad’s looking for you.”
 
“OK.” Abigail smiled and followed Kyle, who she noticed was angry.
 
Zack sighed with relief. Then he realized she hadn’t taken his present. He put it back on the table and sat down. His stomach was doing flips. Food would likely worsen it. His gaze fell on her. She hugged partygoers and laughed. She’s happy, and that’s all that matters.
 
His eyes roamed her body unconsciously and stopped at her tits several times. The tattoo was eye catching and looked amazing on her.
 
“Should I make you a plate?” Shane asked Abigail as she greeted more guests. “We got most of your favorites.”
 
She smiled, excited. “After presents?”
 
“Eighteen hasn’t changed you, huh?” Shane hugged her. “How about you open my gift, then we eat?”
 
She jumped in his arms. “You bought me another present?” She thought the tattoo was her gift. “Can I open it? Please?”
 
“Yeah.” Shane led her to a table with a few wrapped boxes. He selected the ones from him. “Hope you like it.”
 
Curious, she tore the paper. When she saw the box, she squealed. “You really got it? You said I was too young.”
 
“Trying to throw you off.” Her happiness meant everything to him. “This too.”
 
Abigail was beyond grateful. He had bought her a professional camera and lenses. “I can’t believe this.” She hugged him fiercely. “Thank you so much!” She hoped she had the chance to use it that week.
 
“You can open a few more later.” Shane directed her toward the food. “We got vegetable lasagna.”
 
“You’re the best, Daddy.”
 
Most of the bands set to play that day attended the party. Alcohol prevailed, but the drinkers were respectful of the occasion. Music played in the background. Everyone had good clean fun for a change. It didn’t compare to the parties they normally had. Shane was grateful it had worked out so well.
 
Soon after they handed cake out, the party started to wind down. Crew members needed to finish setting up the stage. Zack figured he should help, so he followed Dave toward the exit.
 
“Wait!” Abigail ran up to him when he reached the door. “You’re leaving? I didn’t open your gift.”
 
He smiled. “Right, sorry.” Instinctively, he checked to see if anyone was watching them. No one paid them any mind. He pulled the box out of his jacket pocket. “It’s just something that made me think of you.”
 
Excited, Abigail tore the wrapping and stared. Her pulse raced. He got me jewelry? She opened it slow. “Oh my God!” The pink heart diamond pendant was gorgeous. “I love it.” Unable to hold back, she jumped on him and wrapped her legs around his waist.
 
It shocked Zack when she kissed him. However, he automatically embraced her. His cock swelled when she eased her tongue into his mouth. He didn’t resist and delved his into hers. A soft moan slipped out as her hand gripped his back. Then he came to his senses and forced her to her feet.
 
“I’m sorry.” Zack backed away from her. “That was… That was…”
 
She grinned. “Amazing. I love how you kiss.” She moved closer and freed the necklace from the box. “Put it on me. Please.”
 
With shaky hands, Zack laid the pendant on her chest, then closed the clasp. His gaze went to her breasts again. The heart settled right between them, nestled perfectly. “Wow.”
 
“It’s perfect.” She hugged him again, that time on her feet. “I love you too.”
 
His eyes opened wide. “Wait, no. That’s not what it means.” He stepped back. Fear gripped him. “It’s just a birthday gift.”
 
Her reaction made him realize how extravagant and significant the pendant was. He’d purchased it without thinking of that. The impulse to please her had overruled his mind.
 
“I’m sorry if you misunderstood.”
 
Her eyes watered for a few seconds. “It’s OK. I love it.” She hoped it meant he wanted to be with her. “Thank you.” She turned and rushed to the bathroom to get herself together.
 
Zack watched her until the door closed. He hated to hurt her. I need a drink. He sighed. No. I need to work. As planned, he left and headed for the stage.
