Now here’s an excerpt from Rock Courtship!

excerpt

“Beer—whatever you have on tap,” David said to the grizzled bartender and grabbed a stool, his eye on the rugby game in progress on the TV screen bolted above the bar.

He’d hardly taken a sip of his beer, the dark liquid bitingly cold, when he felt a presence at his back. Instincts honed by a childhood in one of the toughest areas of New York had him focusing on the mirror behind the bar to check out the situation before he turned. A big, bald, and heavily muscled male with a spiderweb tattoo on his neck was standing behind and just to the side of David, a smirk on his pockmarked face.

Belly heating, David turned with a slight smile. “Problem?”

The bald man bared his teeth and, laughing, looked to a table to his right. “Hear that, boys?” he called out to his friends. “The pussy rock star here wants to know if there’s a problem.”

Laughter and shouts from that particular table, while the rest of the men in the bar went quiet. David didn’t move, taking a measure of the players without letting it show. “Always know your opponent” had been one of the first things his father had taught him—Vicente Rivera didn’t believe in turning the other cheek; he believed in teaching his sons how to put bullies on the ground and keep them there.

“Yeah, there’s a problem,” the bald guy said, shoving at David’s shoulder. “This is a real bar for real men. Not pussies.”

Like that, then. Good. He was in the mood to do some violence. Lifting his beer, David took a long drink, then slammed it down… and punched Bald Head in the jaw at the same time that he kicked out with his foot to connect with the other man’s knee. The jackass went down like a ton of bricks.

Roaring in rage, the man’s friends came at David.

He grinned and started to show them what this “pussy rock star” could do.

It wasn’t until they’d broken a table and several chairs, and the bartender had called the cops that David realized Thea would have to deal with the fallout from this. Fuck, fuck, fuck, he thought as he was shoved into a cell alone, his erstwhile opponents in the cell opposite. Sliding down the graffiti-marked wall to the floor, he thought about the phone call the desk sergeant had said he could make and decided against it.

Fox had Molly with him—the band’s lead singer had been waiting for his girl to arrive since the instant Schoolboy Choir set foot in the city. As for Noah and Abe, they both had their own plans. He knew any one of the three men would drop those plans in an instant to come to his aid, but since the cops had made it clear he’d be spending the night in a cell no matter what, why mess up their plans?

“You do or say anything that’ll hit the media, you call me. Day or night. I hate surprises—so don’t you dare surprise me.”

Thea had given that order to all four of them when she’d agreed to act as their publicist. Her up-front nature and dedication to her job was part of the reason they’d hired her; Thea was the best and she didn’t take any shit from her clients. He wasn’t doing himself any favors by not calling her.

Right then, David couldn’t find it in himself to care. It wasn’t as if she could hurt him any more than she already had. And Jesus, how long was he going to carry this torch that was burning him alive? “Fuck, fuck, fuck,” he said aloud, banging the back of his head against the wall.

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s new contemporary romance novella is pure hard rock and scorching heat…

What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band’s publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

Only problem is, Thea doesn’t date clients—or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she’s not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.

What she doesn’t know is that David is a one-woman man…and he’s madly in love with her. David’s determined to prove he’s worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea’s about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

I adored the first book in Nalini Singh’s Rock Kiss series (my review of Rock Addiction), so I was so excited to read Rock Courtship! And oh my gosh, I’m so happy with Thea and David’s story!! I kind of wish it were a full-length novel so I could get more of them, but their novella is pretty much sweet, sexy, and perfect.

If you’ve read Rock Addiction (if you haven’t, you definitely should!) then you know that David, the drummer of Schoolboy Choir, has always had a thing for Thea, the band’s publicist. Well, it’s more than just a thing – he’s totally and completely in love with her. I was rooting for him to win over Thea in Rock Addiction, and we finally get to have their story told in Rock Courtship. Their story was actually so much more than I thought it would be – it was heartfelt, romantic, funny, sweet, and definitely sexy. I had so much fun reading this book!

Thea is a very take-charge kind of woman – she’s confident, bold, headstrong, but she doesn’t have a good history of dating men who accept her for who she is, so she doesn’t trust men. David, though, knows exactly who Thea is, and loves her all the more for it. But… Thea has a strict policy of not dating clients. It doesn’t matter that there’s some hot chemistry between the two, Thea won’t date David. But David is persistent. He’s the kind of man who doesn’t bulldoze his way towards his woman – instead, he strategizes the best way to win her over, and in this case, it’s writing memos to Thea.

Reasons Why You Should Give Us a Shot
Introduction: In this memo, I, David Rivera, explain why you, Thea Arsana, should seriously consider entering into a relationship with me.

As a publicist, Thea is unable to help herself from reading memos, so it’s really the perfect plan for David to get Thea to listen to him. And I loved them all! David, the Gentleman of Rock, is honest, sweet, romantic, funny, and very very passionate in his memos to Thea. He definitely won over my heart as well as Thea’s this way. These memos made me smile, laugh, clutch my heart – they were just too cute!

Thea gives as good as she gets when she replies to David’s memos with some of her own, and the two of them go back and forth, playfully replying to each other. Thea tries to make David see that they won’t work, but with the memos (and then phone calls), Thea slowly opens her heart to him and begins to trust that maybe he won’t break her heart after all.

These two are just perfect together! David and Thea make the sweetest couple ever. And even though their lives aren’t exactly simple, and they don’t get to see each other 24/7, they still try their hardest to make a relationship between them work.

She was it for him. Today, tomorrow, every day to come.

Rock Courtship was just a sweet, sweet read. I adored David and Thea’s courtship (*wink*). It’s a quick, fun, light-hearted read that fans of the first book won’t want to miss. We also get to see the other members of the band and Molly, which I was really happy about. Now I’m just so excited for the other band members to get their stories!!
