Why We Fall for Rock Stars!

Oh rockstars, I do love you so. The tattoos alone are drool-worthy. The fact that you can control tens of thousands of screaming fans with your voice and guitar? Yeah. That too. *fans self*

Taste of Candy by Shoshanna EversIf you’ve ever been to a concert and watched a sexy lead singer do his thing, there may have been a moment (or okay, lots of moments?) when you fantasized about what could happen.

If you got that VIP pass. Or if the bouncer saw you at the backstage door, looked you up and down, and gave you The Nod. The Nod that meant, “sure, go backstage. He’s looking to hook up.”

*squeals internally*

All of this (ahem) over-active imagination of mine got me thinking. What if you won a dinner date with the hottest rockstar around? What if he not only showed up, but wanted to make all of your wildest fantasies come true, just for one night?

And what if things went so well… one night turned into well… more?

That, my friends, is how I came to write Taste of Candy, a rockstar erotic romance novella, back in 2011. It was published, but I got the rights back to it recently — and I did what so many hybrid authors are doing these days. I re-edited, put on a hot new cover, and self-published this backlist ebook.

But just to make it even more fun, I made the book free. Not free for a few days. Free for as long as I can. For as long as Amazon will let me with the price-match.

So if you love rockstars as much as I do, and want to escape for a couple of hours into pure fantasy, Taste of Candy is all yours.
