Cody’s the sexy drummer extraordinaire of the hard rock band Oblivion.
Kitty’s the little sister of one of Cody’s band mates and she’s had a secret crush on him for years.
When the band are back home for a few days, the chemistry between them is both unexpected and undeniably off-the-charts.
She quickly realizes that the prospect of having what she’s always fantasized about is a very real possibility.
He quickly realizes that although he feels this mind-blowing attraction towards her, she’s the little sister of one of his band mates - he would get his ass kicked from here to hell if he ever laid a finger on her!
But can Kitty convince him? After all, no one else needs to know, a one-time hook-up might suit both of them…or could it ruin everything?

Excerpt – Sexy Ink
Everyone else is already up and they look like they’re just about ready to leave for the day. As soon as I walk into the room mine and Cody’s line of sight connects and we lustfully hold our gazes as I stroll towards the kitchen. He must have just showered too because his hair is still damp. He looks absolutely edible. The electricity between us is definitely still there. In fact my desire has been fueled even further by all the erotic dreams I had last night and now we’re in the same room again my cold shower seems to have been a complete waste of time. By the way he’s looking at me it makes me wonder whether he’s been thinking about me too.
The next thing I know I hear my brother Nikki growling angrily as he stomps towards me pointing at my leg, “What the fuck’s that?” he snarls.
Shit, I’d forgotten about my tattoo. About three months ago I got a colorful tattoo. I think it looks cool and I’m told it’s extremely sexy. I glance down at my leg and then glance back up to Nikki who’s still pointing angrily. I mock surprise by holding my fingers to my lips, widening my eyes and inspecting my thigh as I snark, “Oh my gosh, I think it might be a tattoo! How the hell did that get there!”
Nikki scowls and admonishes, “I know it’s a fucking tattoo Kit but what the hell’s it doing on your thigh?”
Nikki’s attitude annoys me. “Don’t be such a hypocrite Nikki, you’re covered in ink. Anyway, I think it looks sexy.”
Cody gets up from his seat and saunters casually over to me. His eyes run over my leg, carefully inspecting the ink on my thigh. He steps so close to me that we’re almost touching and I can feel the heat of his body radiating off him. He smells divine, fresh from the shower, all musky and clean. I’m struggling to control my urge to reach out and touch him.
He moves his focus to my face and winks at me self-confidently, “Looks as sexy as fuck if you ask me sweetheart.” His fingers gently glide over my thigh, but as quick as he’s there, he’s gone and is strolling back to the other side of the room where he slouches back down into his armchair. My skin tingles at his touch and that small amount of contact definitely leaves me wanting more. I hope like hell I’m not visibly panting!
Nikki scowls at him. “She’s my god-damned little sister Sticks. I don’t want her to look sexy. So keep your opinions to yourself…and your fucking hands for that matter. Don’t think I didn’t see that dickhead.”
Nikki’s comment doesn’t affect Cody in the slightest as he mumbles, “Not my fault she’s scorching hot, I’m just admiring the view and saying it how I see it.”
Bonus Scene – Strip Club
This scene is for those of you that have read and loved Book 2 in the Oblivion on Tour series, Bolt From the Blue and want to see some more of Nikki and Trixie. This is a scene from Pure Torture where the band and their ladies are enjoying an evening at a strip club…
Some more drinks are delivered and we settle down for the next song. The DJ’s booth lights up and he announces, “Well folks, I’ve noticed we have a few ladies in the audience tonight…” The rowdy group of men in the club all whistle and cheer. Cody squeezes my thigh tightly. The DJ continues, “So I thought we’d have one for the ladies…there’ll certainly be some fires in the ladies panties shortly, so everyone please welcome Rick the fireman onto the stage!”
The music pounds, hard and heavy. It’s in stark contrast to the slower sultry songs that the girls have been dancing to. A hot looking guy in a fireman’s costume comes romping onto the stage. He’s not wearing much already, so I’m not quite sure what he plans to take off! He starts his performance as he thrusts and gyrates in time to the music. The Oblivion guys all look at each other and shake their heads in utter disgust. Cody comments “What the Fuck man!” The others all agree with frowns and cursed mutterings.
Me, Eve and Trixie have all started paying a little more attention to what’s happening on the stage. The three of us stand up and dance excitedly to the music, much to the revulsion of the Oblivion guys who look like they honestly don’t know where they should look.
Trixie leans over to Scott, waves her hand in his direction and yells above the volume of the music, “Scott, give me a few dollar bills.”
Scott reaches into his pocket and hands Trixie some bills. Trixie grins and waves them in the air, trying to get the attention of the sexy fireman.
Nikki scowls and doesn’t look very impressed, “That no fuckin’ touching thing goes for you too Trixie!”
Just as the sexy fireman starts to dance his way towards Trixie, Nikki swipes the bills from her hand and shoves them defiantly down the front of his own jeans.
Trixie’s laughing as she yells at him, “Hey!”
Nikki grins back at her and challenges, “No touching. If you’re gonna be putting your hands down anyone’s pants, it’s gonna be mine.”
Trixie doesn’t miss a beat as she quickly straddles Nikki’s legs, reaches down, undoes his zipper and goes in search of the missing bills. Nikki isn’t perturbed at all. He just sits there with a larger-than-life smile across his lips. His hands rest securely on Trixie’s hips as he allows her to search while thrusting his hips in time to the music.
After a few more seconds than would have been necessary to just grab the notes, Trixie removes her hand from Nikki’s jeans, complete with a handful of bills. As quickly as she’s removed them, Nikki swipes them from her again and tries to hand them back to Scott.
Scott reacts in utter shock as he howls, “Shit no! Don’t fuckin’ give them back to me! I know where they’ve been!”
Trixie tries to grab the notes out of Nikki’s hand but he’s too quick.
The Oblivion guys are laughing as Scott exclaims, “Come on Nikki, the poor fireman’s been shaking his ass in your girl’s face for the whole song, he deserves some cash.”
Nikki grimaces but stands up and waves the bills at the sexy fireman. The dancer comes sauntering and dancing towards Nikki. He obviously wants his tip so he shakes his ass right in Nikki’s face. Nikki growls and sneers, “Shit I don’t know whether to give the fucker the money or punch his lights out.” He quickly decides that the best course of action is to get rid of the dancer as quickly as possible, so he hurriedly stuffs the bills down the back of the dancer’s underwear. The sexy fireman turns around and grinds his crotch in Nikki’s face. Nikki glowers at him angrily and quickly returns to his seat, prompting fits of laughter from the rest of us.
All this distraction has meant that we’ve missed the majority of sexy fireman’s performance. His song quickly finishes, the ladies in the club all clap, whistle and cheer. Then the stage is quickly filled with a group racy female dancers who are dressed in skimpy cheer leader costumes. They flip and flounce around the stage, managing to easily recapture the attention of the mainly male audience.

Why Do Women Love Rock Stars?
Despite the fact that they have heartbreaker written all over them, rock stars are irresistible. Here’s my take on why…I’ve included a few snippets from my Oblivion on Tour books to demonstrate.
1. Appearance – they look good!
Let’s start with the obvious – they look hot!
And because women are inexplicably attracted to bad boys, rock stars definitely fit that bill.
(From Pure Torture)
He looks as sexy as ever. His brown hair and cock-sure red mohawk always drives me crazy mad. I’ve frequently imagined what it would feel like to run my fingers through that spiky hair. I wish I could walk over to him and do exactly that right now. He looks effing hot! He’s wearing faded blue jeans and an old Oblivion T-shirt. But the main thing I notice is the way he’s looking at me. Every part of him is screaming with uncontrolled desire.
2. They woo you with lyrics
How many times have you heard a song that captures your mind? For women attraction is not entirely about looks. Men have to be attractive on both the eye and the mind. That’s why women love rock stars – they wear their hearts on the sleeves – they write songs about their emotions and how they feel. What girl doesn’t love a guy that talks about feelings?
(From Heaven Sent)
All five guys strum together combining their different sounds into a perfect harmony. Then Ash starts to sing, his voice is soft but raspy at the same time and oh so sexy. He looks down, staring straight at me then he moves his gaze away focussing on the guitar on his knee. The crowd light up their cell phone torches and sway as Ash sings. The other four band members quietly sing in the background. As I listen, the words of the song register. He describes having to let the love of his life go and the heartache and sadness that the loss causes him. It continues on to express hope that one day he will find his love again.
Ash sings the song with such intensity and feeling. I know from the words of the song that it’s one he wrote with me in his thoughts. My heart aches and I just want to jump onto the stage and hug him into my arms.
3. Women are attracted to talent
It doesn’t matter what talent it is, but there is something very special about a guy that can play a musical instrument or sing a song.
(From Bolt From The Blue)
Each of the guys slowly comes into sight, seeming to materialize from nowhere. The crowd all holler and clap but the noise is drowned out by the guitars which are wailing a melodic tune as each band member makes their way across the stage to their positions.
I can’t take my eyes off Nikki. He’s taken his shirt off and is just wearing dark jeans and black boots. My body instantly reacts as I take in the sight of my striking Rock God. He’s in his element, this is where he belongs. He looks so natural, like this is precisely the place where he’s supposed to be.
Nikki takes his position close to where I’m standing and turns and winks at me. A sexy smirk tugs at his lips. He knows perfectly well how hot he looks and I’m sure he’s purposely teasing me with his sexy-as-hell body and self-assured attitude. It’s taking every ounce of my self-control to stop myself from darting across to him to close the agonizing distance between us. I have an over-whelming urge to jump him right here, right now.
I turn to look at Eve and Kitty and they’re both just as transfixed on their men. I look around the stage and appreciate how incredible this group of guys really is. They’re all absolutely amazing musicians that just ooze talent.
4. They’re confident
Confidence is attractive to most women. Rock stars tend to be confident – hell wouldn’t you be confident too if you were a rock star?
(From Pure Torture)
Suddenly Scott bursts into hysterics. He’s laughing so much he can barely contain himself. We follow his line of sight to see what’s amused him so much. Cody is confidently strolling into the room. He’s wearing a crazy as hell outfit. He has black ripped jeans, which admittedly are fairly standard attire, but he has matched it with a T-shirt that looks like it’s been shredded to pieces. It’s completely disintegrated and it’s hanging in threads. He’s also wearing what looks like his whole collection of jewelry – three eyebrow rings, a lip ring, chains with pendants around his neck, a series of wrist bands and some rings on his fingers. He has black stripes painted on his cheeks and although his mohawk is still bright red, the rest of his hair is bright blue.
Scott screeches, “What the fuck man? Why the hell are you wearing that?”
Cody shrugs his shoulders, not caring what others think. With a cheeky smirk on his face he confidently and loudly states, “Why am I wearing this?…”
The guys all reply in unison, barely able to control their laughter as they exasperatedly ask, “Yeah why?”
Cody grins and raises his arms out to his side, “Because I’m a fucking rock star that’s why!”
5. They’re passionate
Passion is attractive. Having passions in life simply makes you hot.
(From Pure Torture)
My life feels like a never-ending treadmill of hotels and travelling. The only time I feel truly alive is when I’m on stage. Now that’s real adrenaline. That’s what I live for. Music courses through my veins instead of blood. Music and the band mean everything to me. Absolutely fuckin’ everything.
6. They’ve got the moves
If they have good moves on the stage, then perhaps they have good moves elsewhere too?
(From Heaven Sent)
The guys perform all their hit songs and the whole crowd enjoy the show. During one song the rest of the band fall silent and Ash and Nikki perform a guitar duo. They purposefully pace across the stage towards each other, their eyes predatory. The riffs from their guitars resonate in perfect synchronization.
When they meet, they turn and lean against each other so they’re back-to-back supporting each other’s weight. They’re completely in their own zone. Their eyes are closed, letting the music flow out of them rapturously.
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but it’s a very sexual and sensual move. Trixie looks over to me fanning her face dramatically and gasps, “Fuck that’s hot!” I nod my head in agreement, barely able to take my eyes off the two rock gods erotically duelling on stage.
Tell us about you
The first thing you need to know about me is that I genuinely believe in true love and soul mates. I met my wonderful husband when we were still at school. I was sixteen, he was seventeen, we are high school sweethearts. Now more than thirty years later, we are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful children. We live in picturesque New Zealand and I consider ourselves lucky to live in this magnificent part of the world.
I do have a full time job, but in my spare minutes I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading and of course my other major ‘hobby’ is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!
What books do you write?
My Oblivion on Tour Series follows the five band members of the hard rock group Oblivion. Each book in the series follows a different band member and their quest for love. They can be read as stand-alones.
Book 1 - Heaven Sent - Ash and Eve’s story
Book 2 - Bolt From The Blue - Nikki and Trixie’s story
Book 3 – Pure Torture – Ash and Kitty’s story
Books 4 & 5 will each tell Scott and Hansen’s stories.
What are your books about?
Hot sexy rock stars and the girls that steal their hearts!
What’s the best thing about being an author?
Doing something that you love! Also, it’s a real thrill when others enjoy what I write. Writing is a very solitary thing, but sharing it with others is incredible.
How do you get inspired to write?
I listen to a lot of music which inspires me heaps, but the main thing that inspires me is the characters themselves. They are constantly in my head just dying to tell me their story.
How do you write?
Although I’m a definite planner with everything else in my life, I tend to write by the seat of my pants – the characters talk to me and tell me their story. It might be little snippets of something they might say, or a particular scene they want to share or even the whole story line. I tend to have a general idea of where the story is going to go, but the actual story and details change as I start to write.
I often get asked what inspires me and I always tell people it’s sort of like if you’re watching a really good movie. You’re enjoying it immensely but for some reason you get interrupted and have to pause the movie for a while. Your mind carries on thinking and comes up with various scenarios as to what might happen when you resume watching the movie. Writing is sort of like that for me…only I write down what my mind is telling me might happen.
When do you write?
In every spare minute I can grab! I try to write every day. I get up very early so I squeeze in some time before work, I write on the train and in my lunch break. I also try to write some evenings but the majority of my writing is done on weekends.
What made you sit down and decide to write something?
I started writing in early 2014. After spending many years writing business documentation, and constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, I decided to try my hand at fictional writing. After penning my first scene I discovered that I enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in my imagination. That story resulted in my first novel, Heaven Sent .
Do you aim for a set amount of words per day?
Although the stories I write are not planned in any major way – everything else is planned, scheduled and organised to meticulous detail – including how many words I need to write each week to reach my targets.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Just do it. Don’t wait. Start now!
I waited so long before I discovered how much enjoyment and pleasure I get from writing. I wish I’d started earlier but I guess that means I’m just going to have to write faster to make up for lost time!
What do Oblivion sound like?
Hard, heavy and as hot as hell! I have a number of bands that inspire my imagination including Like A Storm, Hinder, Bring Me The Horizon, Seether, Royal Blood and Chevelle.
What do you like to read and who are your favorite authors?
I’m an avid reader and tend to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. I have so many favorite authors and I definitely couldn’t mention them all here, but the list includes SC Stephens, K Bromberg, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Sylvia Day, Chloe Cox and Olivia Cunning. Whenever any of these amazing ladies release a book it’s an instant one-click for me!
What is your favorite motivational phrase?
I have a million phrases and quotes that motivate me, in fact my desk and walls are covered in them, but my current favorite is: “What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.”
