by Karyn Gerrard
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Published: July 12th, 2013
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Heat Level: 4
Irishman Brogan Byrne is at the pinnacle of rock music success in 1974. Handsome, charismatic, with a three-octave voice, you’d think he had it all. But Byrne sinks to new depths of depravity with women, liquor, and drugs.
Carly Montgomery is an ambitious record executive offered an opportunity to be manager for the last leg of Byrne’s tour. Though she’s detached and tough as nails, Carly’s cool facade comes under attack. Somehow Byrne manages to slip by her frosty defenses.
Brogan, for his part, is broken inside. A memory weighs on his soul and affects his actions. Is Carly the one woman to help him forget his guilt and heal his heart of rock?
CONTENT ADVISORY: This title contains FMF, and MFF sexual situations (very brief, does not include the heroine) and bondage.
This is a re-release. New additional scenes.
It’s a pleasure to welcome Karyn to the blog today to talk about her latest contemporary romance Heart of Rock \m/ Let’s make her feel welcome. Take it away, Karyn …
I decided to set HEART OF ROCK in 1974 because at heart, I’m nostalgic. Also, if I was going to set a story in the 70′s, I wanted to do it before disco (not a fan) caught on in a big way.
I will no doubt age myself, but I was a tween in 1974, so I remember a lot.
One of the top selling songs in 1974 was Kung Fu Fighting by one-hit wonder, Carl Douglas. Yep, I had the ’45 record. Though classified as Funk, it had that annoying disco beat that soon took over the music charts. 1974 is also when ABBA hit the charts. (not a fan) However, on the upside, Canadian rock group, RUSH, hit the charts as well!
My hero, Brogan Byrne, is a rocker all the way. (And Irish!)The name of his rock group? —wait for it— Byrne n’ Flame. Sorry. Couldn’t resist.
This erotic romance is not about the technical ins-and-outs of the rock music world, but rather a story of boy meets girl. Girl (heroine Carly Montgomery) doesn’t take any guff; her tough outer shell is a protection from past hurts. Boy isn’t exactly likeable a lot of the time, and carries a lot of baggage. Brogan may just have found the one woman to help him carry the load.
