Rock and roll bands are pits of self-destruction, drug abuse, and insanity. And then there are the bad ones. Killer Valentine breaks all the rules: that the back-up singer is supposed to sleep with the lead singer, that roadies and musos must hate each other, that the band is the most important thing in the world and everything else comes second, even sick kids, and that second-guitar players eventually wither away and die. But Killer Valentine is different. Very different.  Read about: • Rhiannon, the sassy, curvy back-up singer who goes on to forge her own career, a female protagonist you’ll love! • Tryp, the drummer, who is falling into a well of despair, but a roadie with a small taste for pyromania fishes him out. This enemies to lovers story is one for the ages. • Cadell, lead guitar virtuoso, who is fighting his own addictions and his secret baby daughter’s fatal illness. His secret baby is a different take on the trope that will make you ugly cry. • Peyton, the hanger-on who should have been a concert pianist, after he ran away to follow the woman he loved but who didn’t love him, and finally gets his own HEA. This second chance lovers book is a hot and steamy romp through the life of a rock and roll star. They’re all rock stars in disguise, and they’re finally all in one book, just for you. Includes: What A Girl Wants (Rock Stars in Disguise: Rhiannon) Somebody to Love (Rock Stars in Disguise: Tryp) The Rock Star’s Secret Baby (Rock Stars in Disguise: Cadell) Santa, Baby (Rock Stars in Disguise: Peyton)

What do Postman Pat, Tommy Cooper, Norman Wisdom and George Best have in common with being abandoned in a Costa Rican jungle after a severe bout of flatulence? Indeed, how are they also connected to trying to buy an Australian brewery just to get a beer, owning twenty-two cars, an American soccer team and a Swiss mail-order pornography company? The common feature is of course a certain Richard Wakeman. The Further Adventures of a Grumpy Old Rock Star takes you, the privileged reader, on a trip of absurd excess, a cultural car crash of side-splitting hilarity and an unforgettable glimpse (again) into the life of one of Britain's most legendary showmen, rock stars and all-time great raconteurs.

"We're like a religious cult." --Or where will you learn Izzy Stradlin's (of Guns N' Roses) deep thoughts on the virtues of vomiting out of a bus going sixty-five miles an hour? --And how live octopuses end up in a bathtub with Led Zepplin's female playmates? Whether you're a Metallica or Madonna fan, you'll get plenty of jaw-dropping facts and anecdotes, along with biographical and career highlights of over eighty-eight raunchy rock 'n' rollers.

Trevor Riggs has already had a dream of a lifetime that not many get to do. Stand up on that stage and sing to those out in the audience screaming his name. But times had changed. You can’t stop growing older... Michelle looked at this man that she had met the day before. Alone except for family; no security around. She had remembered that he had retired from that circus of Rock and Roll a few years earlier. Trev stirred his tea. "Well, just FYI, that's just one part. That part now days is little and circumstantial. There's a lot more... to me than just that one part. I'm bones, organs, and flesh... I'm as human as anyone else. I possess no super powers- no more wearing spandex!” They laughed. “People tend to not see that. That's why it's so hard to meet anybody. They get hung up so bad on that one part." His thoughts suddenly drifted. “I remember back on how magical it was. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't change a thing.” He hesitated, “I want them to love me, for me, not for who I used to be.” Will Trevor get back to the normalcy he longs for?
