Rock Me Tonight

By Lisa Carlisle

Third in the Underground Encounters series

rockmetonight_msrLily Everett needs sex, but won’t consider a permanent relationship, because she harbors a secret she’s certain no one will understand. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms.

Keeping her emotional distance proves difficult the more Lily uncovers the intelligent, considerate man hiding behind Nico’s bad-boy persona. Their encounters are hot-hot-hot, but Nico wants more from Lily than sex. When Lily lets down her guard and reveals her other side, Nico’s shock destroys their closeness and they both doubt they can overcome their differences.

What is it about paranormal characters that makes them so irresistible? Vampires, shapeshifters, gargoyles–I can’t get enough of them. And when you pair them with a rock setting, I’m hooked. Something about the dark, solitary figure of the paranormal characters and the bad boy/bad girl image of the rock star draws me in.

I’m Lisa Carlisle and I write a paranormal romance series for Ellora’s Cave called Underground Encounters. Paranormal characters and humans meet in an underground goth club–vamps, shifters, gargoyles, and sometimes rock stars! Here are the two recent releases in the series (each can be read on its own, not necessarily in order).

Bloodlust and MetalBloodlust and Metal

Book 4 in the Underground Encounters series

On the run from a master vampire, young vampire Layla Black flees London to reinvent herself as the singer of an Eighties cover band in Boston. Devon St. Clair is the bounty hunter hired to track her down. As a shapeshifter with extraordinary skills, his reputation is known throughout the supernatural world. Capturing Layla should be an easy gig that will net a nice profit.

The situation doesn’t go as Devon plans. He wants Layla in his bed, but shapeshifters and vampires don’t mix. They should hate each other, but instead they’re keeping the sheets steamy. When circumstances force them on the run together, their preconceived notions are challenged. If they can evade those hunting them and convince his fellow shapeshifters to help her even though she’s a vampire, they just might have a chance to explore where all that hot, sweaty sex can take them.

Summer Seduction Blog Hop with Lisa Carlisle

Hi, I’m Lisa Carlisle and I write hot paranormal romance for Ellora’s Cave. Welcome to the Summer Seduction Blog Hop!

To kick off this hot summer, I had two new releases in my series, both with a rock ‘n’ roll element. What’s hotter than a rock star? I don’t know what it is, but there’s something so sexy about a man crooning on stage or playing an instrument, especially guitar.

I’m giving away a digital copy of Rock Me Tonight or Bloodlust and Metal to one lucky commenter through my Rafflecopter giveaway. Be sure to leave a comment below on who you think would be the sexier hero, Nico or Devon.

A Sexy Saturday with Lisa Carlisle

Good morning. This is my first My Sexy Saturday. Here are seven paragraphs from my paranormal/shapeshifter romance Rock Me Tonight.

That was my hang-up. I knew no guy would be able to handle my secret.

My thoughts were distracted as I strained to hear the opening of the song. He sang so softly at first I barely made out the lyrics. Then his croon turned into a seductive opening of a song I recognized. #1 Crush by Garbage, an admittance of obsessive love . How the hell did he make it sound so tormented and yet so damn sexy all at once?

I had to get a better look and see this guy who was exacting complete control over the crowd. He had them worked up in a frenzy during the last song and now they had settled into a hypnotic sway as they listened to him sing with such intense longing. He delivered it with such a painful croon, almost haunted. That’s when I finally caught a glimpse of him.

Holy hell.

My recent encounters with punk rockers led me to believe they were all a bunch of ugly bastards so I was not expecting someone so—so—like him.

He was wearing a plaid green-and-black cap, but I saw his dark brown hair was cut close to his scalp. He looked so young and innocent at the same time. I pegged him to be in his late twenties. Maybe my age or a couple of years younger than me since I was about to celebrate the first of many twenty-ninth birthdays later this year.

I stood up on the rung of a stool to get a better look and that’s when I saw he was also playing bass guitar. He wore torn camouflage pants tucked into tall, black Doc Marten-style boots and held up by a silver-studded black belt. His torn black shirt sported the Velvet Cocks logo—a rooster wearing a smoking jacket and an ornate V and C, which appeared very Victorian and proper. Misdirection perhaps as to the actual naughty words? Tattoos galore extended from beyond his shirtsleeves. The whole combination gave him a hardcore look of a total badass. Dangerous and sexy.

Paranormal Romance and Rock and Roll – Two New Releases by Lisa Carlisle

Shapeshifters, vampires, and rock ‘n’ roll — a perfect match for a summer read. I’m very excited to share my new releases out at Ellora’s Cave. These are two stories I had a great time writing. I wrote the first draft of Bloodlust and Metal during National Novel Writing Month last November, going to “write-ins” at local libraries to meet up with fellow authors. In Rock Me Tonight, it was a blast to explore the characters. A software engineer who doubles as a rock singer meets a woman with a very different type of double life.  Read on for more. 🙂

Devon St. Clair is the bounty hunter hired to track her down. As a shapeshifter with extraordinary skills, his reputation is known throughout the supernatural world. Capturing Layla should be an easy gig that will net a nice profit.
