While Sidney helps her sister through a whirlwind of wedding planning, she can’t help but cross paths with Vaughn, who is exactly the kind of man she doesn’t want to date. James is one of the most talented writers in contemporary romance today, and her writing sparkles as these two verbally spar like Hepburn and Tracy.
Author Kristen Ashley has built a huge readership over the past two years. Fans know that her novels will have plenty of steamy romance, hilarious hijinks and tough alpha heroes. In Rock Chick, Indy Savage finds herself in some trouble when someone shoots at her and one of her employees. She needs a place to lay low for a while, so she crashes at her best friend’s brother’s apartment. When Lee comes home early, he assesses the situation and decides to mobilize the guys from his private investigation firm to get Indy out of trouble. Indy has been in love with Lee Nightingale since he held her hand at her mother’s memorial service when she was five years old, and she’s shocked when he suddenly makes it clear that he wants them to be together. Rock Chick is the first in Ashley’s enormously popular Rock Chick series, originally published in e-book form. Fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series will fall in love with Ashley’s Rock Chicks!
