QUESTION: In Summer of Irreverence–The Rock Star, where did mega rock star, Malcolm Angel, grow up?
She looked down for a minute, then back to him. “Where did you grow up?”
“Detroit.” He barely moved, his eyes fixed on her.
She chewed her lip, terrified she was overstepping a boundary, but she asked anyway. “City raised?”
“Yup. A rundown part of the city, held together by a bandage. We did not have unobtrusive appliances. Actually, we were lucky we had appliances at all. No dishwasher. No microwave. But we did have a fridge.”
She nodded, staring at his face—seeing the city etched into every line. “Your, uh… parents?”
He shook his head. “Just my mom.”
“She must be incredibly proud.”
“Oh…” Summer’s shoulders slumped forward again. “I’m sorry, Malcolm.”
“It happens. After awhile…they all just begin to pile up, cushioning one another, so the higher the pile, the softer the blow—the less you feel.”
“Like the Princess and the Pea.”
“But the princess felt the pain. No matter how many mattresses there were.”
“That’s the irony of it all, isn’t it?” He reached up and grabbed the back of his neck with his hand.
She studied his face, wondering…wishing she could make his pain go away, if only for a moment.
Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm.
Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.
When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?
I am a bestselling author of gritty romance novels, and a New York City girl at heart.
I am thrilled to bring you, Summer of Irreverence–The Rock Star, the first book in my newest series, The New York Artists Series, featuring strong, talented men, and the surprising women they fall for.
I am the author of The Letting series, Book 1: The Letting, and Book 2: The Coupling; and I also write romance and steamy women’s fiction novels, including, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress.
I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre. I began my career as an award-winning playwright, and I am a proud member of RWA, PAN.
I am addicted to Luna bars, decaf coffee, yoga (yoga clothes), and I find my best writing ideas come from sweat sessions on my treadmill. I love the works of many authors, my favorites include Hemingway and Bukowski. These days I read a lot of Shel Silverstein and Mo Willems—which brings me to my reason for reading these modern masters, the absolute loves of my life: my two young girls, and my husband (who reads grown-up books too.)
