A fangirl nurse. An ill-fated rocker. When she steps back in time to save him, will their affections spell happily ever after?

2007. Evie Reid has dedicated her life to helping others heal. Aspiring to return to school and become a doctor, the full-time caregiver spends her few spare moments as president of a now-defunct rock band’s loyal fan club. But she never imagined her two passions would crash together with a single chance to travel ten years into the past and prevent the troubled lead singer’s shocking suicide.

1997. All Bellamy Lovel feels is cavernous loneliness. Still blaming himself for his father’s death years prior, the frontman masks his pain with the cocky flash and fly aloofness everybody expects. And the last thing he needs is some lame personal assistant to keep him on the clock, especially not the wacko that practically tackled him just for standing too close to a ledge.

Thrust into the thankless position of keeping her idol out of trouble and on schedule, Evie struggles to hide her intentions and suppress her growing feelings. And surprised to find a woman who actually keeps it real, Bellamy can’t help making space amidst the darkness in his heart for her warm tenderness.

Has tragedy already been written into their love story, or will their passion prevail as an all-time number-one hit?

Two Worlds Collided is the standalone first book in the exhilarating Rock Star Romance series. If you like fascinating personalities, touching compassion, and hilarious shenanigans, then you’ll adore Karen Michelle Nutt’s backstage ballad.

Writing Quirks by Karen Michelle Nutt – Guest Blog and Giveaway

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Karen Michelle Nutt will be awarding a $20 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Writing Quirks

One of my writing quirks is that I talk to my characters and test out bits of dialog as I write. I even try out the hand motions and facial expressions that would work best with the banter. When my husband strolls by my writing area, which could be the couch with my laptop, he lifts his eyebrows and chuckles, but after thirty-five years, he’s used to me talking to myself and doesn’t interrupt.

Another quirk of mine is my coffee cups. Yep, I mean cups in the plural sense. I’m a little possessive over those decorative mugs and don’t want anyone else using them. I have different themed cups to put me in the mood for what I’m about to write. I use the Disney Haunted Mansion cup with its ghosts and ghoulies when I’m penning paranormal tales. For my stories set overseas, I reach for my Irish Claddagh cup as if I could channel those Irish characters a wee bit better. A holiday cup is in order for those Christmas stories where rich hot chocolate may be the drink of choice or hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks. I brewed Earl Gray tea in my beautiful mermaid mug as I wrote Mermaid Cove and Seaside Sundaes. However, my Rock Star Romances needed a music-themed cup. I chose The Guardian of the Galaxy mug that rocks with its vintage cassettes themed on the porcelain.

Why do I need so many mugs, you might ask? I’m convinced that I write better with the appropriate cup by my side.

80s rock star, Haley Rose, and her boyfriend went missing without a trace on October 31, 1988, and were eventually presumed dead. Three decades later, thirty-year-old, Rowan Beckett, recalls things only Haley Rose would know, and she can belt out songs in the same unique fashion. However, Rowan couldn’t be the missing rock star since Haley would now be in her fifties. Could Haley Rose have come back reincarnated as Rowan Beckett? Or is Rowan as delusional as her family suspects?

Enjoy an Excerpt

He didn’t know what was wrong with him. He never felt an attraction toward a woman as intensely as he reacted to Rowan just now. It was like the air had been sucked out of the room, and she was his lifeline. If he glanced away, he’d perish. No, that wasn’t entirely it. If he even blinked, he feared she’d cease to exist.

“Would you like a cup of coffee while you wait?” Katie thankfully spoke up, drawing Rowan’s concerned expression away from him and his weird-ass meltdown.

“Tea if you have it,” Rowan replied.

“Coming right up,” he blurted out a little too loudly, but it finally snapped him out of his bizarre trance. He hurried away or rather sprinted if truth be told. He needed to gather his composure, or Rowan would surely hightail it right out of here with the wrong impression of him, and he’d be out a manager. Worse, he would never have a chance to grasp why he wanted to know all there was to know about her.

Was it hot in here? Shit, he was sweating. Anxiety would do that to a man, but what was he so anxious about?

By the time he returned with the tea, he would have thought Katie and Rowan were friends catching up on old times. Rowan was telling Katie about how she carved giant pumpkins last Halloween to look like Frankenstein’s Monster and the other to look like Dracula.

“Earl Grey latte with a splash of vanilla,” he announced his arrival and slid the cup toward her on the bar.

Rowan’s face paled, and she stared at the cup as if he handed her some exotic concoction, she should be wary of sipping.

“Is something wrong?” he asked, concerned over her odd reaction toward a cup of tea.

She finally met his gaze, her big blue eyes wide and curious. “How did you know this was the way I take my tea?”

Hark! Ye Merry Readers

Christmas music on an old wooden table with Christmas lights romantic scene with selective focus

In my short story, Fake Marriage with a Dash of Desire, featured in Hot Western Nights, my heroine of the tale loves to sing, and at Christmastime, would surely partake in good cheer by playing Christmas carols. Believe it or not, some of our most popular Holiday songs were written in the18th and 19th centuries.


Charles Wesley wrote Hark! the Herald Angels Sing in 1739 and appeared in John Welsey’s collection of Hymns and Sacred Poems. The original hymn began with “Hark how all the Welkin rings”; however, in 1782, the lyrics became “Hark! the Herald Angels sing/ Glory to the newborn king”, which is how we sing it today.


O Tannenbaum (Oh Christmas Tree), written in 1824, was a German Christmas song based on a folk song. Tannenbaum is a fir tree, and though the lyrics speak of faithfulness and the symbol of constancy, this song became a favorite at Christmastime.


Joseph Mohr composed Silent Night in 1818. Sometime before Christmas Eve, Mohr brought his ‘Silent Night’ Lyrics to Franz Xaver Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the Christmas Eve mass. (A river flooding had damaged the church organ.) It is unknown what inspired Mohr to write the lyrics, or what prompted him to create a new carol. An interesting tidbit: It wasn’t until 1995 that researchers uncovered that Mohr had written the words in 1816, and Gruber composed the music in 1818. Until then, they thought Haydn or Mozart had been the composer.


What’s more, everyday issues can be overwhelming to a parent who usually expects the thrill of breaking the last board on the last try and advancing to the next belt level and we have experienced the utter agony of no-change. levitra 20mg australia There is always some kind of medication that can beat impotency efficiently and can help you to make your sexual intercourse last longer and satisfied. cialis online without prescription The former governor general has expressed his desire to tadalafil pills take the correct dose.

Sandys. The lyrics are olde English and thought to date back to the 15th century. Unfortunately, the author is unknown. It is reputed to be one of the oldest carols. This haunting and mysterious carol is one of my all-time favorites.


Enjoy the rendition of the song on YouTube performed by Annie Lennox. The imagery is unique with its Victorian Christmas-card-feel but with a twist of medieval and pagan qualities.


God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
