This week we are talking about…

Concurrent session 5B—Rockin’ our world

Hot, sensitive and unyielding, rockstars are the wild men (and women) of the contemporary romance scene. For many people their first object of adoration was long haired guy with the mic belting out stories of love, lust, and heartbreak, or the silent and mysterious type strumming his bass. It’s no surprise that rock stars have become such a popular addition to romance readers shelves.

Rockstars can rock a stage, and the readers! Join Lexxie Couper, Nalini Singh, Kylie Scott and Eden Summers as they share their entry point into the rock lifestyle, sources of inspiration, and how they turn a character’s band into a family unit to spawn multiple storylines. What’s next in their series, who do they love reading, and what rock star they would like to rock their world?
