(Guest post by Carlene Love Flores)
Greetings fellow book and music lovers! Thank you, Miss Nikka, for playing hostess today. Being on tour is so much more fun when we have fine establishments like your lovely web home to crash at for the day. So here’s a big ole smooch from the guys and me.
As I said, I’m not alone. I’ve brought Stefan Calderon along. He’s the bass playing lead singer of Sin Pointe. He’s been very patient while his band-family got their books. Now, his story, Wicked Flower, is finally here! It is the fifth book of the series and the first to be rated erotic rather than just romance so thank you, Stefan, for that hotness. To celebrate its release, I thought it would be fun to share some favorite “Stefan Moments” at each blog tour stop. While this is Stef’s story, his drummer Will ended up playing a big role too. I love these guys when they are together. Please enjoy a bit with the both of them as they first arrive and see their accommodations for the next two weeks at Mrs. Calderon’s home. From Wicked Flower…
“This is gonna be us,” Stefan said, pausing at the third and final room of the modest house. They peeked in together. They both stared at the single bed. “Looks like you’re finally gonna get your chance to cuddle with me, stud.”
Will hit him hard. The guy had ridiculously strong hands, especially when they were balled into fists. At least Will didn’t have his sticks. “Don’t know what you’re talking about. You know how many floors I’ve slept on? Toss me a pillow and blanket and I’m good.”
Stefan could only guess. “Fuck you. You’re not sleeping on the floor. I’ll see if Mom has an air mattress and if not we’ll buy one tomorrow.” He’d go tonight but thunder had now joined the lightning which flashed in the bedroom window. If they lost power, his Mom shouldn’t be alone and the nurse had yet to come back. He’d be sure Will slept on the bed tonight since it would be wasted on Stefan. Too much to digest for a good night’s sleep tonight.
“Oh, a shopping trip. Sweet. You know I love me some Taggert’s.”
Stefan grinned, remembering the late night phone calls he often got from Will, always wanting an opinion on snacks, candle scents, sheet thread counts, and teeny bopper books. A thought hit him. Will spent a god-awful amount of time alone. “Hey man, you found a place yet?”
“Nah. Not yet. You?” Will asked.
“I’m close. I was having fun drawing it out and looking with Triple Red but I think I’m gonna get serious about it now. Find one big enough to hold us all,” he let out at the end.
“Who? You and your harem?”
Will knew better than that. Stefan didn’t have live-in girlfriends. Visitors, yes. He scratched his head. “Not exactly. I’m thinking about bringing my mom back with me. You know, maybe get a place with a house in back for her. Kind of like what Lucky and Tris did for Grace.”
Out loud, the statement surprised him too.
While Mom should be the only woman on his mind right now, the troubled young lady he’d held a few hours ago wouldn’t leave him. But that was crazy. He had to see that for what it was. Two paths crossing for a minute in time. A very hot moment in time but one that was gone now. He’d had lots of those to speak of over the years. So why couldn’t he smile this one off like he always did and move on?
Fuck, I’m turning soft.
He looked over at Will who was sitting on the edge of the bed, thumbing through the DVD’s he’d bought at the truck stop. A shrink-wrapped copy of “Road House” lay on top with some teeny bopper werewolf drama underneath it. What he’d love to let a “We need to find you a woman” rip, but he didn’t.
“And my main man,” he said instead. “Think about it. You, me, my mom. Good times to be had.”
“And her nurse,” Will added.
“Her nurse,” he said and subtly wagged his eyebrows at Will who barely smiled. What had his mom said her name was? “Daniela.” He said it with his father’s Spanish accent.
“Sounds right up your alley,” Will said, effectively dismissing Stefan’s hint.
And here is the Wicked Flower blurb:
Sin Pointe front man Stefan Calderon is playing a very dangerous game and his mom’s live-in caretaker, Dani Foster, just landed right smack in the middle of it.
Practically strangers when Stefan rolls into his small hometown looking to patch things up with Mom, his and Dani’s worlds collide with a hot and intense hook up. He knows right away this woman will make the perfect partner for his two weeks in town. But when she realizes whose son he is, and what he’s there to do, sexy times come to an abrupt halt.
That is until they come up with a solution. Rules. Every game needs them. The question isn’t if they’ll break them, but when and how hard.
It’s a wickedly delicious game, one neither of them intends to lose.
Thanks for letting me share with you today. If you’d like to spend more time with Stefan in his own book, you can find Wicked Flower at these lovely places:
