WHY WRITE ABOUT A ROCK BAND?
When Christine Bell Robin Covington and I came together to write this trilogy we knew we wanted an overriding story to bind the books together. An impending wedding, we thought. A will they won’t they situation. And why not make the stakes bigger by having the whole thing play out on the world stage with press, public pressure, fans waiting on the result with baited breath?!
From that was born the biggest rock band in the world, The Rift; Jake Mitchell (lead singer), Dash Mills (bass guitar), Laz Stone (lead guitar), and Rocky Cardano (drums), also known as the heroes of the Head Over Heels books.
From the outside, the guys in The Rift seem have it all; a hot rock band, loads of cash, and mad sex appeal. But since the day Dash – the hero in RESISTING THE MUSICIAN – walked out four years ago the band has existed on a knife’s edge. Can our four bad boys of rock find a way to once again become the family they’d once been?
The women about to enter their lives and change them forever may just make it possible after all.
Resisting the Musician
Bridal shoe company owner Lori Hanover is in way over her head. First, her designer sister has fallen head over heels for the rock star fiancé of a client – talk about bad PR! Now her business is falling apart. Lori’s only hope in saving her company is making the world believe it was true love, even if she’s not so sure herself. Her best bet? A song. For this she turns to the most frustrating musical recluse in America, Dash Mills, a man who could pass for Thor’s sexier brother. And even though this former rock superstar agrees to help, it comes at a price…
When Lori agrees to Dash’s terms, he thinks she’s the one in for a challenge. But the more time he spends with this spitfire bombshell, the more tempted he is to play her—in more ways than one. But Dash left behind the rock and roll life for a reason. And seductive as Lori may be, if she drags him back into that world, this time he won’t forgive himself…or her.

EXCERPTS from RESISTING THE MUSICIAN:
***Note from Desiree: Read them all. They are so good I couldn’t choose just onee
His rumpled T-shirt lifted at his belly to reveal a happy trail and the fact that the top two buttons of his jeans had been left undone, as if he’d rolled out of bed, tugged them on, and headed off into the wilderness.
Also leaving her with the pretty sound impression that he wore nothing underneath.
When Callie had mentioned meeting Jake’s illusive reclusive ex-band-mate a few weeks before, Lori had briefly imagined an overweight, overly-tattooed guy who reeked of bourbon and past glory.
Instead, she’d found Thor.
“What compelled you to ignore the ‘No Trespassing Or My Vicious Dogs will Eat Your Liver For Brunch’ sign?” asked Dash.
In sentences three words and less his voice was riveting. Longer it was rich and smooth, with a hint of an accent Lori couldn’t pick.
“The sign lied,” Lori prevaricated, as if she didn’t have a million things she ought to be doing with her time other than standing in this doorway in the middle of nowhere falling into the slumberous dark eyes of a hulking stranger.
His wide mouth flickered up at one corner. She would have bet a mint the guy was well aware how a smile like that would play with any female within range.
“If you want liver-eaters for dogs,” she said, standing taller to negate the urge to fan herself, “they need discipline.”
One meaty shoulder lifted into a shrug. “Never been that keen on the stuff myself.”
He touched the side of his nose and she wondered how many times it had been broken. And how big the other guys must have been.
