SET-UP. 1989. Ryker Conall--lead man for a Glam Rock band called Sirenic--is back in Australia and looking all kinds of Bon Jovi hot. Sadie is doing her best to avoid him at all costs, due to heartbreak he caused her five years earlier. But Ryker is persistent and finally catches up with her....
Reference: bangs = fringe in the States, as in hair fringe.
She quivered in his arms, and gazed into his eyes from behind the safety veil of her bangs. Desire yanked at her insides. How easy it would be to meet his mouth with hers, and to melt into his strong hold. She would have, too, had he not swept her hair away from her face. His face creased with a warm smile. It was the same look he’d given her right before saying “see ya later” and disappearing from her life five years ago.-- Rock You Like A Hurricane, Sirenic #1 with Siren-Bookstrand.(c) JoAnne Kenrick. Tentative release date: 21 September 2011
