sss 24 -- appetite for rockers

SET-UP. 1989. Ryker Conall--American rocker and lead man for a hair band called Sirenic--is back in Australia and looking all kinds of Bon Jovi hot. Sadie had a fling with him back in '84, and he broke her heart when he left without goodbyes.

She's determined not to fall for him again...


Fans squealed and surged toward him, dragging Sadie and her two new friends along for the ride. The stampede hit her back to reality like a slap in the face, and ended her back-to-the-past drool session. She scrambled to break free of the crowd, and reminded herself that her appetite for rockers had gone up in flames when she burned her spandex leggings and thigh-high rocker boots years ago. She cursed and wished she could literally kick herself. Glam rock was dead to her. She was past it, and she should've been way past Ryker Conall. -- Rock You Like A Hurricane, Sirenic #1 with Siren-Bookstrand.(c) JoAnne Kenrick. Tentative release date: 21 September 2011

  1. Such a rude awakening to find out she's not as past him as she thought. The rush and crush of a rock concert crowd is impossible to escape.

    Nice Six, JoAnne! I can't wait to read more. :D

  13. Too cool. I love rock n roll romances. (It's probably one reason I write em.) Guitar heroes, heroines with big hair. Oh, baby.

  22. Love 'back-to-the-past drool session'. This reminded so much of a former co-worker who was heavy into the late-70s/early-80s glam rock scene. She was tall and busty, smart and funny, and dated some well-known rockers. Man, I miss her stories! Thanks for making me smile this morning!

  23. I could "see" your character. Great snippet. From the cover I'm guessing they have a reunion. :)
