Author: Julie Archer
Tour Dates: November 27th – December 6th, 2016
A bar, a band and a Thorne between two roses…
Caro and Nate are perfect for each other. Trouble is, Nate is really Alik Thorne lead singer of the Next Big Thing in rock music and his girlfriend, Edie, isn’t really prepared to share him…
Caro Flynn leaves behind the sultry nights of Mallorca to open her own bar back home. Romance wasn’t high on her list of priorities, but a last minute fling makes her think again…
Edie Spencer-Newman always gets what she wants. But when she sets her sights on something a little too close to home, she’s about to stir up a whole heap of trouble…
When the consequences of a tragic accident cause relationships to crumble, will anyone find a happy ending?

“Being the last person on the plane was never a fun experience, and Caro slunk into her aisle seat, trying to be as invisible as possible, as the passengers surrounding her in business class threw poisonous glances her way. Even the cabin crew had been overtly frosty. The business man she was seated next to was already snoozing as the plane took off, and she was grateful for that. The last thing she needed was someone giving her more grief about why the plane was late. When the crew finally came round with the drinks trolley, Caro gladly accepted a glass of wine from the steward, despite the beginnings of a creeping hangover.
She couldn't stop thinking about Nate, how they had talked and talked. And connected. Had things been different, she would certainly have left him her number.
With a sigh, she put on her headphones and pulled a copy of Roccia from her bag and idly began flicking through the pages to pass the time. A short article in the news section about North Ridge caught her eye. She took a large sip of wine a read on, always interested to read about new local talent.
Recently signed to Numb Records, Alik Thorne and the rest of the Blood Stone Riot boys play their last gig at The Vegas in North Ridge next week before decamping to record their as yet untitled four-track EP at the renowned Newcomen Farm studios.
Set for release in the next few months, the band are also to film their first video to accompany the title track, "Bleed Like Cyanide," in addition to playing a number of low-key showcase gigs in preparation for their debut appearance at the Wilde Park Festival.
Caro almost spat out her wine in shock as she re-read the article and studied the picture that accompanied it more closely. There was a black and white photograph of a singer, caught by the camera snarling into the microphone. He was wildly attractive, with chiselled cheekbones, eyes flashing with passion, and bare-chested, showing an array of tattoos and a nipple ring.
She knew she had seen him before.
Knew that she had recognised his voice from somewhere.
In the magazine shot, he was clean-shaven and his hair was shorter, and he wasn't wearing glasses; looking totally different to the man she had left in bed that morning. But she certainly recognised the tattoos, having spent time up close and personal with them.
He had lied.
His name wasn't Nate.
Suddenly Caro was acutely aware of the fact that she had just slept with one of the hottest new properties in rock music.
About the Author
Julie Archer grew up in Hampshire and lived in Reading before moving to the beautiful riverside town of Dartmouth in Devon. She still feels like she’s on holiday.
Julie trained as a journalist, then went into teaching (kept meeting the sixth form students in the pub, awkward!). After that she ‘fell’ into recruitment, spending more years there than she cares to mention, where the most creative thing she did was to create a sexy top line for job adverts! Since moving to Devon, she set up her own business offering virtual administration and recruitment services, worked for an accommodation company and is currently moonlighting in the local bookshop…
Also, COYS, Cats, Metal. Underneath this preppy exterior beats the heart of a rock chick.
