Desperate times call for daring measures.
At least that’s what I tell myself for packing up and hitting the road with America’s newest and most popular rock band, The Oppressors. The lanky tattooed men are suspicious. Before I stepped on the bus with them, they’ve always made me nervous.
Something’s not adding up, though. There are strange events I’m noticing around them.
- The hazy, vacant stare of the woman in their dressing room.
- And the blood on her shirt.
- The beat less sound of Liam’s heart when I lay my head on his chest.
I don’t think it’s safe to be close with the band, and most certainly not fall in love with one. So why do they make me feel like I’m a part of them? Their close-knitted trio.
What happens when I figure out what I’m dying to know?
This is a dual POV steamy vampire romance standalone that centers around bonds of love and friendship. 18+ dark, explicit sexual scenes, and lots of blood.
“What is the Inspiration for Heartbeat Girl”
Music. Without a doubt, music. And probably some good ole reverse harem. I know what you’re thinking. Heartbeat Girl isn’t a RH. In the book world, I think for anyone to consider a book ‘reverse harem’, our heroine needs to be romantically involved with all males, eventually. That would never be the case for Heartbeat Girl. Our hero is far too possessive for sharing. But, I wanted to add elements of that trope into this book.
A lucky lady surrounded by three men who care and look out for her, even having romantic feelings for her.
I’ll be honest. I’m a huge anime fan. Don’t shun me! In a lot of reverse harem anime, the girl is surrounded by several men who like and care for her. She only ever falls for one, but that doesn’t stop any of the others from loving her. That’s the feeling I wanted to go for. Add a rock band of vampires. And there, I created The Oppressors.
Heartbeat Girl became all the things that I love. I know I can’t be the only one that can’t resist a good book or show where our heroine has all these males around her, pining after her or befriending her.
So, what is the inspiration for Heartbeat Girl, you ask? My own pleasures in which I hope others enjoy, too!
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where possums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.
