Metalsome Hearts (work in progress)

*The cover above is a mock-up and probably won’t look anything like the real cover. I just love to have an idea of what the book will look like. *

Jessica Walker is on the run from a vicious boyfriend who destroyed not only her body but her soul. Fleeing to her parents is impossible because her ex vowed to harm everyone she loves if she leaves.  One choice is to tag along with her punk rock sister as her band tours the country. When that option proves unworkable, a new plan emerges––one provided by her rock star fantasy, Diego Aguilar. But hiding out in his mansion means she’d be living with a man, not just any man, but a rock god.

Diego Aguilar is the most highly respected heavy metal guitarist in the world. When his friend Justine’s baby sister, Jess, appears backstage, he can’t ignore the bruises on her cheeks or the pain in her big blue eyes. Every instinct in his being yearns to protect her––he recognizes her wounded soul, as he possesses one, too. Not one to trust easily, he cannot resist the calling to come to her aid, even if that means risking his own heart.

Now he has a real specter to deal with. The ghostly apparition of a teenage fan visits Rory late at night, bringing with her bone-chilling warnings that send him and his tiny pooch, Pierre, running from his newly-purchased home. With his perfect pad now more Amityville than the ideal relaxed crib he imagined, he calls in the professionals.

Mina Johnson comes to his aid like a knight in shining armor. Or shiny lip gloss. As the founder of Spiriod, a paranormal investigation agency, she’s the perfect person to help Rory with his mysterious ghost girl. At least, she would be, if she weren’t also the woman who spent one glorious, mind-bending night with him years ago, unintentionally breaking his heart in the process.

The former lovers must put aside their lingering feelings to unravel the mystery of ghost girl before a terrible force is unleashed unto the world. As they spend more time together, it becomes apparent Mina is not only the perfect person to help Rory exorcise the literal ghosts in his house, but to help him battle the demons of his past.
