Monday Mayhem – Duranies Rock On!

Posted on Jul 2, 2012 by Margaret Ethridge   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’m on vacation this week (which means I am busy typing and editing), so I asked my good friend and fellow Duran Duran junkie, Karen Booth, to stop by and talk to you about her smokin’ hot new release. Check it out here:

If it wasn’t for the pesky brunette vs. blonde thing, I might make a guess that Margaret and I were separated at birth. We are both Midwest girls, both writers, lured to the South by our husbands. Margaret and I also share an adolescent love that never managed to go away, a vaguely unhealthy preoccupation with Duran Duran.

When I first befriended Margaret and found out she is also a Duranie, my only thought was this: “She’s so awesome. We could be such good friends. As long as she’s a Simon girl. If she’s a JT girl, this might not go well.” Ah, silly me. Of course Margaret had to be a JT girl (John Taylor for those not up to speed on Duran Duran vernacular). Dammit.

Alas, Margaret and I have learned to set aside our friendly JT rivalry. Neither of us will bad-mouth the other in his presence. We would never send him disparaging tweets. If we happen to show him a slightly unflattering picture of the other person, that’s purely by accident. Besides, he’s a rock star, he’s bigger than life. Surely there’s plenty of him for Margaret and I to share.

My brand new (smoking hot, if I do say so myself) book, Love My Way, comes complete with a hunky-on-the-outside and sweet-and-geeky on-the-inside rock star named Peter. He’s dead-set on snagging my heroine, Katie, but she isn’t ready to risk her heart for a rock star and she definitely isn’t willing to share. So, I want to know which rock star you want all to yourself, the one you aren’t willing to share. One responder will win an e-copy of Love My Way!

Love My Way

After her fiancé penned a “Dear Katie” letter, Kate Stillman vowed she’d never give a man more than one night. Free from emotional entanglements, she’s had some hot one-night stands, her heart has stayed off-limits and her photography career has skyrocketed. It’s the perfect plan until a Miami getaway brings her face-to-face with Peter Barrett.

Hunky rocker Peter has been pursuing Katie from afar ever since she photographed his band. In the flesh, it’s clear it was more than flirtation. Katie gives in to their sizzling chemistry, thinking Peter will appreciate her one-night rule. Instead, he balks and extends an invitation for a second night of pure abandon, an offer too tempting to refuse.

When they part, Katie realizes her rule protected her heart only too well. Time away from Peter leaves her wanting him more. Every steamy late-night phone call makes her wonder if she can love again. But when Peter returns and her trust is tested, Katie must overcome her past to learn that love her way was never the way at all.

    Great. Now I will have to fight 2 of my twitter friends when I tell them that NKOTB is better than Duran Duran. 🙂

    Sounds like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Hi Karen! I LOVE the sound of your book! The rock star I want all to myself is…um, Sting. It’s true. I think the man is a sexy beast, and the voice. Guh! I’ve been known to subconsciously undress myself whenever I hear a Sting song. 😀

    Ooh…Sting! He’s into tantric too, you know. I mean, just in case you get bored with his musical genius.

    Heather, Heather, Heather…I thought we laid the DD vs. NKOTB thing to rest a long time ago.

    Karen,
    Never!! 🙂 I still love you though. It is better this way. One less person to not have to fight off your man.

    Never was into Duran Duran. Journey was my band of choice. Plus I had some really *white bread* guilty pleasures. Barry, Neil, John Denver, Max Davis. Oh and Chicago. Nothing like a great horn section.
