Unscripted Teaser memory blank

Tate rests against the wall again. “You know how to keep a guy hanging, don’t you? I’ve waited for your call. I need to know what you’ve decided about the marriage.”

“I was busy. Calling you was on my to-do list.”

He laughs at my pointed look. “Touché. I haven’t heard from my lawyer, so I presume you’re okay with the arrangement I suggested?”

Now. Here. Who’s in control? I pause, and we eye each other the way we did in character, as Brit and Dev, and I attempt to communicate I won’t take any of his crap. His mouth twitches in amusement.

“Myfanwy? Answer?”

I look over to the glass doors and balcony, aware I’ll possibly regret my next question. “How long do you want to stay married, Tate?”

“November?”

“That’s three months!”

“Correct.” Tate sets his glass on a table close by, then crosses his arms over his chest. “You know what confuses me?” I shake my head. “There’re hundreds of girls out there who’d give everything for a piece of Tate Daniels. Why aren’t you grabbing the opportunity to get your hands on me?”

I scoff. “Seriously, Tate? Why would my lack of interest in you be different to six years ago?”

“Come on. Based on your repeated attempts to get my clothes off in Vegas, you clearly wanted the full experience.” His eyes glint as he focuses on my mouth and moistens his lips. “I’m willing to oblige now you’re sober enough to remember.”

I step closer. Did I behave like that, or is he lying? “Not happening.”

Tate uncrosses his arms and leans into my face again, warm fingers touching my ear as he moves hair away. “One night with me, and you’ll be begging for more. And you know it.”

“Wrong.”

“Are you sure?” His lips brush my ear, and I focus on keeping my breath even. Here we go again, Tate turning up the intensity. “Because I’ve waited a long time and so have you.”

“Tate?” I ask in a low voice.

“Yes?”

“Step away so we can discuss the issue.”

He laughs as he moves back. “Step away and discuss the issue,” he mimics. “Man, you’re uptight sometimes. You do realise that makes me want you more? Always did.” He pauses, and the grin grows. “And now we have each other, finally.”

Tate doesn’t touch me, but his proximity triggers arousal, even without his suggestions. Jesus, I hate my body sometimes.

“Why are you behaving like a jerk?” I hiss.

“Because I don’t like being jerked around.” He moves his face closer to mine again. “Don’t play me. You’ll lose.”

I tighten my mouth and meet his challenge, ignoring my heart thumping a heady mix of lust and anger through my veins. We’ve been here before, many times, Tate attempting to wear me down and into his bed. He knows—we both know—the sexual spark between us arced the first time we performed on stage opposite each other, and it was almost acted on. What happens now we’re in the position again?

“If I agree to stay married until November, I have some conditions.”

“Sure.”

I don’t let go of the challenge, or succumb to him. “The marriage remains secret.”

“Suits me.”

“And you offered me money?”

Tate’s attitude lifts, eyes shining. “Cool. How much?”

“I don’t want your money.”

“You’re confusing me.”

“A million dollars for—”

He snaps his head back. “What the f*ck? I thought you said I couldn’t buy you?”

“Let me finish!” I retort. “I’ll stay married to you if you pay a million dollars to charity.”

“I don’t have a spare million dollars!”

“I bet you do. I know how much you were paid per episode for the last show you were in.”

He barks a short laugh. “Try a quarter of what they rumoured.”

“Have you spent it all?”

“No.”

“Well, then. Didn’t you say your agent wanted, and I quote, ‘someone who does charity work and shit like that’? How much do you want me to agree to this, Tate?”

He blows air into his cheeks. Ha, that smacked away his smug. “Half a million?” he offers.

“Three-quarters.”

“Half.”

I don’t know what I’ll enjoy more, his reaction to this or to what I’m about to say next. “Fine, if you agree to my other condition.”

“Which is?”

“I can pretty much guarantee this one will be the deal-breaker, and you’ll have the papers on my table tomorrow.”

“Try me.” He cocks an expectant brow.

“No sex with other girls until we’re divorced.”

Tate blinks and looks at me as if I asked him to join a cult. “Okay, you can have a million dollars for your charity.”

I laugh. “This is in addition to, not instead of, however much you donate.”

“Seriously, Myf? I can’t do that!”

“Okay. I’ll call my lawyer tomorrow and—”

As I attempt to pass him, he curls a hand around my arm. “You cannot expect me to give up sex for three months.”

“Why not?”

“Can you?”

“Easily.”

“Liar.”

I pull my arm away, and a smile snakes across my face at his reaction. All those girls at college, all the broken hearts. “I’m only asking you to be a faithful husband since you want to stay married to me. I’m helping you clean up your image, Tate.” I can’t hide the saccharin sarcasm or the fact I love I have him by the balls.

He leans forward, lips close to my ear, and my heart stutters, then starts racing three times the speed as he speaks. “Other girls? So sex with you is okay?”

The alcohol smell on his breath mingles with the spiced scent of the expensive cologne he advertises and triggers a memory from Vegas.

Tripping into Tate and hanging onto his neck as lights blur above me, the casino sounds and cigar smoke surrounding us as we’re locked in the moment. 

Another image flashes:  Tate’s lips on mine, his hands in my hair as we spin together. Or was that the room spinning? I can’t remember that or how his lips felt on mine. I have no recollection how I reacted when Tate kissed me.

And he can’t realise in this current moment I want to know. “No, and I’m not interested.”

“You’re lying again.” Jesus, I wish he’d move his mouth away from mine.

“I have no intention to get into your bed.”

“Too late, you spent the night with me already.”

“Unconscious.”

He bites down on his lip, pissing me off when I shiver. “Did you know what you were doing when you passed out?”

“Lying on the bathroom floor?”

“That was the second time. The first time you were trying to undo my pants and—”

“I was not!”

“How do you know? You don’t remember anything.” He throws me a sly smile in return. “You were very insistent.”

“Bullshit. I could hardly stand. No way would I do that. Not my style.”

“Keep telling yourself that,” he bats back. “Now you’re sober, I’ll show you exactly what you wanted to see and take part in anything you wanted to do, just say the word.”

I struggle for a smart comeback, but the flashback won’t leave my head.

“I bet you’d like my mouth on you,” he continues, rubbing fingers across his bottom lip. “Doing dirty things I’m positive you’ve thought about.”

“Stop there!” Gathering what little strength I have against the effect he’s having, I break his hold on me. “The only betting I do is playing poker in Vegas.”

“Yeah, badly. Your poker face sucked. Still does.”

I run my tongue along my teeth. “You want to bet on something? I bet you can’t lay off sex for three months.”

“Correct. But I bet that sex will be with my wife before three months is up.”

The End of the Blue Phoenix Era

BP Lines - 3

Credit: Jemina @ Booknerdfangirl

Last week saw a bittersweet day for me as I published the last Blue Phoenix book. Call it a cliche, but this series has changed my life – I finally achieved my dream to become a full-time author thanks to Blue Phoenix. So, here’s a blog post with some fun facts and backstory about the series. Thank you for reading and all your support.

Today I’m saying goodbye to the band and moving on to new projects. I feel as if my new friends are leaving town and I won’t see them again!

These are a few questions people often ask me:

Where did you get the idea for the series from?

Almost three years ago, I was half-asleep and a scene started playing out in my head. Two people were involved in a car accident on a country lane in England – a famous guy and a ‘take no nonsense’ girl both running away from their lives.

I tried to push them away, but in the end I gave up, climbed out of bed and switched on my laptop. In the early hours of that morning, I wrote the beginning of a book and only stopped because I was too tired to carry on. I still have no idea where this all spilled from, but it became Summer Sky.

To begin with, the unnamed famous person was going to be an actor but he decided to be a rock star. At this point, I had no idea rock star books were popular! I’d read one years ago but as I mostly wrote and read paranormal romance back then I missed this. In fact, it wasn’t until I published the book I realised the rock star is what caught people’s attention.

Summer Sky was only ever going to be one book and now the sixth in the series and Dylan and Sky’s third book is available (fourth if you count Dylan’s novella). The last three years have been a rollercoaster ride with the books, the band and readers. I’m still stunned by the fact the series hit Amazon bestseller lists and has been so popular and am grateful for the people I’ve met and the opportunities I’ve had since Summer Sky released.

 

Why are the band called Blue Phoenix?
The name was chosen after researching tattoos! Because Dylan’s tattoo features in the story as a clue to Sky (that she completely missed) I wanted to find something that looked good but wasn’t already a well-known band name. I loved phoenix tattoos but the name already existed so I had play around with colours, checked out some tattoos and decided on Blue Phoenix. Fun fact: I now have a blue phoenix tattoo. A lot smaller than Dylan’s!

 

 Why did you choose the names Dylan and Sky?

I wanted a name that had a connection with the ocean (or the sea in this case). Dylan, as you probably know by now, means ‘man from the sea’ and Sky seemed a perfect match for this. Which leads to the next question…

 

Why are the band members Welsh?

Basically, the reason is because I chose the name Dylan and that’s a Welsh name. Then it made sense because Cornwall is in driving distance of the part of Wales the band grew up in. I once lived in Pembrokeshire, Wales (close to St Davids, actually) but only for a short time as a child.

 

How did you choose the other band members’ names?
By research into surnames and popular Welsh names. Bryn is because it’s one of my favourite Welsh names and because he’s how I picture ‘a Bryn’. Jem – I like J names and wanted something that was short for a name people might not expect him to have. Liam has a gentler feel (to me). It’s tough to remember because if I hear any of the names now I only picture the characters.

 

Where is the cottage and town  Sky and Dylan visit?
The town is fictional but a mash-up of seaside towns I visited as a child in the south-west of England. I usually stayed at camping sites rather than quaint cottages, but definitely had my fair share of dips in the cold sea!

 

Who is your favourite band member?
My answer as always… depends on who I’m writing about at the time. None of the four match my ideal man and how could they if they all have their flaws? I love Dylan’s romantic nature, Bryn’s humour, Liam’s protective and passionate side, and Jem … I couldn’t live with a man like him but still love him.

 

What do the band members look like in your mind?

Another tough one. I think readers will all picture them differently and I didn’t base their looks on anybody in particular. The exception is Liam who’s based on one of my best friends as a teenager. He had Liam’s caring and gentle nature and was also as protective of his distinctive hair! He passed away when I was eighteen and I still think about him. He wanted to be a rock stars I made him into one :) I do have the Dylan & Sky covers framed on my wall so the couple have begun to look like Sky and Dylan in my head now. There are a few images on my Pinterest board for each book if you want ideas on how I visualise Jem and Bryn. And props to the wonderful Jemina for working with me and creating the band in the image above (look carefully at Jem’s tattoos and you might see something Ruby Riot related…)

https://au.pinterest.com/lisawritesaus/

 

Which is your favourite book?

Impossible to answer, of course! Although, when I published Rising and readers’ opinions of Jem completely changed I felt a real accomplishment because I’d managed to open up a character people hated and make him the hero.

 

Who is your favourite heroine in the book? Are any of them like you?

Not really! And again, hard to say. Of course I love Sky but feel sad that sometimes her very British sarcasm is mistaken for bitchiness. Ruby was tough to write because of what she went through and so different to Sky. I love Cerys’s strength and vulnerability, and I’m happy I ‘found’ Avery to step up to the mark and match Bryn’s humour.

 

Does Blue Phoenix sound like any of today’s bands? Did you base them on anybody?

Their sound (in my mind) is a mix of a few. The band started in 2008 so I looked back at who might’ve inspired the guys as teens. They’re lovers of the classics too – Led Zeppelin especially (just ask Cerys). Jem of course likes Metallica, and Slash is an influence on him too. Liam’s a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. Plus I hear Bryn likes Pearl Jam (just ask Jem).
Their sound isn’t as heavy now as in their ‘angry teen’ early days – I would put them in the same kind of place as The White Stripes or looking further back, Pearl Jam. Somebody once told me they think of Dylan sounding like Eddie Vedder and I agree he’d have a very distinctive and versatile voice. Especially after that choir boy training…

Because Ruby Riot are more recent they have a different sound – Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers etc

Here’s the Blue Phoenix playlist I created while writing the books

 

How did you manage to match the different character timelines? Do you have a detailed plan somewhere?

Okay…  I shared this on Facebook last year. Don’t laugh, but this is my whole Blue Phoenix timeline and the only notes I have… Some is blanked out because *spoilers*

12473859_779157122212765_7733121964516475029_o

 

Please tell me this isn’t the last book…

The last book was Reverb! Forever Sky came about because readers’ love for Sky and Dylan was very vocal and I decided to follow their story through to what I feel is their final HEA. Is this it from Blue Phoenix? I’m fairly certain this is the last full-length book for any band member. Novella? Maybe but not in the near future. Short stories? Perhaps… If I could pull off a ‘Back to the Future’ vibe I’d write about the Blue Phoenix children but I’m not sure I can predict 18 years into the future 😉

 

How much do you like bacon sandwiches?

I never thought I liked them enough to make them a character in my books!

 

Can I buy signed paperbacks?
Yes, you can as I stock all the books for signings etc. The problem is postage is very expensive from Australia to the rest of the world. If you decide to buy the paperbacks from Amazon, I will send signed postcards and bookmarks to match them. If you have done this, or would like to order any, please contact me at lisa@lisaswallow.net

Forever Sky is now serialising on Wattpad

Wattpad promo 1 copyThis year has been one of ups and downs in my personal life and my writing schedule is a big mess. Every week I receive messages about Forever Sky asking when I plan to publish. I’m worried about giving an answer because I don’t want to disappoint people if I change the date – but feel bad that so many people are waiting and waiting.

So, I came up with a solution:
I am going to serialise Forever Sky on Wattpad, starting April 2nd.

What does this mean? 
Forever Sky is partially written already. Each week, I will add a scene to the book on Wattpad of around 1000 words (sometimes more, sometimes less). This will continue until the book is finished and I will take the Wattpad version down when Forever Sky is published.
As this is an ‘as is’, unedited version there will be some error and later changes but it means those waiting can follow Sky and Dylan’s journey sooner.

What is Wattpad? How do I join?
Anybody can join and read the stories that authors post – there are a huge number of genres and authors on the site, both new and established.
You can sign up here: https://www.wattpad.com
Follow me here: https://www.wattpad.com/user/LisaSwallow
And Forever Sky is here: https://www.wattpad.com/myworks/67467091-forever-sky

As soon as I’m able to, I will also put the entire book up for pre-order on Amazon.

I hope some of you will be happy with this news and follow the story. Any questions please let me know.

 

Summer Sky – Blue Phoenix 1 – *FREE*

SummerSky.Ebook.v2Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing it again – even if he is a six foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.

Sky Davis is fed up of boyfriend Grant taking her for granted and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled holiday and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind.

Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving chaos and speculation behind.

Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach their cars and worlds collide.

Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they’ve travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason – to escape from reality back to a place with happy childhood memories.

Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a summer romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.

Fantasies can’t last forever and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn’t sure she wants to be more than his ‘summer Sky’ but Dylan doesn’t want to let her go.

Returning to the real world and public scrutiny isn’t their only problem. Blue Phoenix bass player, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan’s life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won’t stay hidden, even when they’re paid to ‘go away’.

Summer Sky is a contemporary romance where occasionally more than the bacon sizzles. This is the first in the new ‘Blue Phoenix’ series of rock star romances.

RisingebookAmazonOur demons don’t want to play but they sure as hell recognise each other

Three attempts at staying clean after rehab and Jem Jones, Blue Phoenix guitarist, is determined this time he’ll succeed. Haunted by his recent past, Jem throws himself into the one addiction he still has left: his music. With Blue Phoenix on a break, he looks elsewhere for a place to channel his creativity and discovers up-and-coming band Ruby Riot.

For lead singer, Ruby, breaking into the music scene could break the cycle of abuse that’s controlled her life since she was a child.  Finding release through music, the growing success of the band has set Ruby on the path to regaining her identity and self-esteem.

Ruby Riot brings Jem and Ruby together but they recognise they have more in common than their passion for music. Can this understanding of each other break down the carefully constructed barriers they’re trapped behind? Or is loving somebody too big a risk to take?

When Jem’s past slams into his present, he has to face the reality behind what made him the man he is and why he hurts the people he wants to love.

And as Ruby reaches out to help Jem, she discovers trying to fix somebody comes with the risk of getting cut by one of their shattered pieces.

Rising is the fourth book in the Blue Phoenix series. It can be read as a standalone but contains minor spoilers for the other books in the series.

This book includes scenes of domestic violence that are not gratuitously graphic, but may be disturbing to sensitive readers.

Summer Star – Blue Phoenix 1.5 – A novella

SummerStarebook

“I love the world we’re in, where you’ll always be my summer Sky. I could live here forever.”

Dylan Morgan has lived and breathed his life as lead singer of Blue Phoenix for eight years and now it’s suffocating him. On the verge of a breakdown, he cuts off his signature long-hair and walks away from the band.

Returning to a place from his childhood, Dylan’s life collides with Sky Davis, the girl who doesn’t know or care who he is. Usually girls fall at his feet in a star-struck heap, so Dylan is intrigued by and attracted to the girl who’d rather read about hot guys in books than succumb to his charms.

What follows is an unsuccessful battle to keep his rock star ego under control and his hands off Sky. The harder Sky fights her attraction to him, the harder Dylan tries to get her attention. But a girl like Sky needs more than a smouldering look and a bacon sandwich to win her over.

Dylan and Sky find themselves lost together in the fantasy of a holiday romance by the sea, but the reality of who Dylan is threatens to break the illusion at any moment.

This companion novella to Summer Sky is a RETELLING of part one of the book from Dylan’s point of view. Summer Sky MUST be read first.

***The novella can be read at any point after Summer Sky – it does not contain spoilers for the other books in the Blue Phoenix series and does not need to be read before Falling Sky.***.
