DIRTY… SEXY… ROCK STARS!!!
The Dirty series will be available in November 2016! … Beginning with the prequel novella, Dirty Like Us (Dirty #0.5), available exclusively to Diamond Club members (you can sign up here and you’ll get your FREE copy!), and the first full-length novel, Dirty Like Me (Dirty #1).
So why rockstar romance? Well, because rock stars are sexy.
Also, because I grew up on rock music and with this series my inner fangirl is having her day in the sun (and a hell of a lot of fun)! But there is also a deeper reason to write these stories. I started developing this series—about the sexy members of a mega-famous rock band and the women and men who love them—at the end of 2015, and in early 2016, as I began writing Dirty Like Me and Dirty Like Us, the world received a great deal of sad news from the music industry, including the deaths of David Bowie, Prince, and Glenn Frey.
I guess I had truly hoped that the great musicians whose music has inspired me throughout my life—the rock gods of my youth—were immortal, and being faced with the truth was a little… shocking.
The sad news has left me feeling even more compelled to write this series about Dirty, the fictional rock band I’ve come to love so much that I wish they were real! Since I am not a musician, this is my way of getting to express what music, and the people who make the music I love, have meant to me over the years.
Music has always been a huge influence in my life, and never more so than when I was young and in need of that inspiration. If it wasn’t for music in some of those really hard times, I honestly don’t know how I would’ve made it through. For me, music was a light in the dark, the reassurance I needed that there was a whole big beautiful world out there beyond whatever I was feeling or going through.
Like me, the characters in the Dirty series were all shaped by music in some way. As I write these characters and their love stories, I’m so thrilled that I’m getting to serve the incredible gift that music has given me by sharing my love of music through them.
Some of my earliest memories of feeling inspired to write came from studying song lyrics, but I’ve always been motivated to write (and read) by my passion for romance. If you’re like me, there’s nothing that thrills you more in a book than a great (and often hard-won) love story. The common thread in all my books is a strong love story that drives the plot—oh, and did I mention the scorching hot sex that practically sweats off the page?! Yeah, that!
I can’t wait to share the rest of the Dirty series with you. Right now I’m hard at work on the rest of the books, and as in all of my books, you can expect explosive, page-turning chemistry and white-hot sex! The first full-length novel in the series, Dirty Like Me (Dirty #1), which tells the story of Jesse and Katie, will be released in November!
And if you sign up to get your free copy of Dirty Like Us, I truly hope you enjoy this crazy-hot beginning to the story of Zane and Maggie (it wouldn’t be Zane’s without a little crazy in it!). You’ll see more of them, as well as the other members of Dirty, throughout the series.
I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on these books once you read them, so please reach out to me if you have something to say!
