Congratulations to "Jennifer H.", the winner in Scarlett's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

I am a total sucker for rock star romance and rock star heroes, which got me to thinking about why I love them so much.

Is it the bad boy image and the promise of a wild, crazy, reckless night of passion? The wicked smile and gravelly voice? (After all, music is sexy… musicians are sexy.) Or is it the softer side? There’s nothing quite like a broken hero on an emotional journey to fix himself to get your heart fluttering. Match that rock star intensity and passion with a love story that’s full of upheavals and ups and downs, and you’re in for a real rollercoaster of excitement and anticipation.

There is something HOT and addictive about getting caught up in the fantasy of bagging and taming one of these gorgeous, sometimes broken, men. And who doesn’t want to get swept up and whisked away from life for a while? I know I do. It’s why I love the rock star romance genre!

And it is why I had to write a rock star romance series of my own. I hope you love the Preload boys, especially Nik and Jenny’s second chance romance. Happy Reading.

NIKAN REBUILT by Scarlett Cole

Does the past ever really stay in the past? Find out in Scarlett Cole’s NIKAN REBUILT, the steamy, third standalone in her rockstar romance series, Preload. After years of no contact, Nik and first love Jenny’s connection still blazes between them. Will they have their second chance at love? Or will the weight of their past crush their future together?

Title: Nikan Rebuilt
Author: Scarlett Cole
Series: Preload #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 2, 2018
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press SWERVE
Format: Digital and Paperback

From the queen of heart-pounding, sexy, emotional romance Scarlett Cole comes Nikan Rebuilt, the next novel in the Preload series. 

Does the past ever really stay in the past?
Nikan can never be complete. He's got a rock group made up of the family he built for himself, more money than he knows what to do with, and a stream of groupies falling over themselves to date him. But none of them are her. The one regret that still plagues him, still taunts him with what he could have had.
Jenny is a survivor. Now running a group home after overcoming life in a cult lead by her manipulative father and watching her mother drink the poison he fed his followers, she fights to keep the light in the eyes of every boy who walks through her doors. Far from simple young love, Nik taught her to trust, showed her how good life could be. Before he formed the band. Before he became a famous rockstar. Before he destroyed it all.
A chance meeting after years of no contact shows the connection still blazes between them. But will they have their second chance at love? Or will the weight of their past crush their future together?

About Scarlett Cole
The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.

  5. A Life Less Ordinary, huh? I have words of the year that often change. I've had Balance, Ruthless, Cleanse, and Just Do It (if I must think of it as one word, then I'd go with Nike) so far. I continue to strive for Balance with family and friends (and, yeah, work too, LOL). I have Cleansed not only my computer files and desk files, but friends and family too (they really can be a drag). Just Do It, though, seems to be my continual mantra. I don't always heed my desire to do so, but when life isn't dragging me down, then I DO Just Do It. It can be putting things away upstairs rather than leaving them on the stair step for the next trip upstairs, it could be taking 5 minutes to clean the front entry way, or it could be finishing up work before starting on supper (because I'm in the groove/rhythm and don't want to start over). I could never tattoo my mantras, but I appreciate your dedication to making it a priority in life. Well done!
