When I asked Robin if I could be on her blog and received her response, I almost fell off my chair. I couldn’t believe she said, “Yes.” Robin is unbelievably amazing and I’m very happy to be here today.

Thank you so much, Robin, for hosting me today and letting me share with your readers my new release titled, Ariel’s Song. (Thank you for being here, Evie! And thanks so much for your very kind words! I’m delighted to have you here!)

To celebrate the launch of my new release, I have a tour wide giveaway and I’m also gifting an ecopy of Ariel’s Song to one lucky commenter at each blog stop. (You heard Evie guys! Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered. I’ll randomly select a winner on Sunday, November 17th.)

So, who inspired my hero?

 

Have you heard of David Garrett? Yes? No? If you’ve heard of him, then you know he’s a fabulous musician. He rocks out the violin like no one can. If you haven’t heard of him, you’re missing out. Trust me when I say the moment you listen to one of David’s songs for the first time, you’ll want to go back for more. It happened to me and that’s what inspired my hero, Colin, for Ariel’s Song.

 

About Ariel’s Song:

Colin Hoskins, famous classical violinist, is tainted by his past. Angry at life, unable to move beyond the betrayal of his dead fiancé, he’s sworn off performing or falling in love ever again. All Colin wants is to be left alone, except no one listens. Especially the pretty little assistant he can’t fire and his body burns to claim.

Stranded in a foreign country, bankrupted heiress Ariel Parks needs a job to fund her way home. Assistant of sorts to the musician she’s fantasized about for years sounds like a dream job. She never imagined the gorgeous genius would be a reclusive beast. But the real problem is the way every nerve in her body tingles at the mention of his name.

Sneak Preview:

His lips curved into a smile as he straightened to his full height. “I think you’re bluffing.”

The sunlight coming through the windows in his study, caressed his shoulder-length golden brown hair tied in a ponytail, bringing out the natural gold-plated highlights. Damn his beautiful hair. How could a man be a genius in music and so gorgeous at the same time? Life sucked.

Ariel held his gaze. “Does it matter?” This job would make a difference between having a roof over her head and ending up homeless by the end of the week. She cringed at the latter. She didn’t want to back down or let her anxiety get the best of her. Not yet. She glanced at the entrance. “I don’t hear anyone else knocking on your door.”

Colin stepped toward her. “Maybe I already hired one of them.”

Ugh, such arrogance. The man she’d dreamt of didn’t resemble the one standing in front of her. Every word coming out of Colin’s mouth took a degree off her hottest musician thermometer. Damn it. She was bankrupted and stuck in Bibury, England. Ariel needed a job, like yesterday. She’d give it one more try before admitting defeat.

“Now, who’s bluffing?” If he’d hired someone she wouldn’t be having this conversation with him now. Ariel tried to add distance between them, except she ran out of room and bumped into his desk.

Colin glanced at her hands on his desk then fixed his gaze on her. “Why are you here, Ariel?” He stepped forward, towering over her by a good six inches.

  1. elena k

    I am not married yet but I would choose moon and I by steve vai because I have the best memories listening to it with my boyfriend and because steve said that this song was inspired and written in my country greece. thanks for the giveaway. this book looks great!

  2. I liked you on FB and I did a must read on GR. I’ll pick up the book in a minute as it sounds delightful. Congratulations Evie and wishing you huge success! : )

    • Robin

      Hi Robena! Thank you for stopping by – and extra thanks for the book love for Evie! It does sound great, doesn’t it? I’m swooning over Colin already.

      • Hi, Robin!

        I’ve been swooning over David Garrett … err, Colin? For months now and I’m going to a concert this coming Jan!! I’m super excited because I’ll get to meet him –> David Garrett.

  3. Alicia Reynolds

    Congrats, Evie! I absolutely love the unique musician concept! Your book looks wonderful! Here’s to many, many sales :-))

    • Hi, Alicia!
      Thank you for stopping by. I’m glad that you love the musican concept. And yes! Cheers to many, many, many sales :)

  4. I must go find and listen to this violinist! Thanks for telling me about him.
    I was married in a judges chamber, so no songs playing, but my daughter and son-in-law had their first dance as marrieds to THE BOOK OF LOVE by Peter Gabriel. What a gorgeous moment that was.

    best wishes with your new release, :-D

    • Hi, Lynne!

      I was married like you, in a Judge’s Chambers ;) But a song we always dance to is “Sway” by Michael Buble. Love, love that song.

      When you mentioned your daughter’s wedding song, I could only imagine how magical that moment must’ve been.

      Thanks for the good wishes on my release, and do check out David and let me know what you think.

  5. Hi Robin! Hi Evie! “Ariel’s Song” sounds awesome. I love a brooding bad-boy with a good heart despite his wounded soul. ;)

    Hubby & I were married at the courthouse, so no wedding song for us, but if I had to pick one now, I’d go with “In My Life” by The Beatles. It only gets more true as the years pass.

    • Hi, Sam!

      The Beatles are a great choice. It feels good to know I’m not the only without a wedding song. LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by ;)

  6. Our wedding song was Thank you by Led Zepplin. The chorus was printed on our invitations.
    Words to start a life-long marriage to:
    “If the sun refused to shine-
    I would still be loving you.
    When mountains crumble to the sea-
    There will still be you and me.”

    I added Ariel’s song to my GR to be read list, I liked quite some time ago on FB. Books about musicians seem to be a theme for me lately… can’t wait to read this one too! :-D

    • Hi, Kerry!

      Those are beautiful lyrics and what a creative way to have it printed on your wedding invites.

      Thanks for adding Ariel’s Song to your TBR ;)

  7. Robin

    Hey everyone! Sorry I disappeared there. Very long day at work! Thank so much to everyone who stopped by! And huge thanks to you, Evie, for being here today!

    My hubby and I did our first dance to Popsicle Toes by Michael Franks. Totally different and fun – and we loved it!

    Wow, three of you here got married in a judges chambers/courthouse. I think we need to throw a wedding party! LOL

    • Robin,thank you so much for hosting me today. *mwah* It was lots of fun being here today.

      Yes. I agree all three of us should throw a wedding party. LOL!

      (((Hugs)))

  8. Kate Willoughby (@Kate_Willoughby)

    Congrats on the release, Evie! I followed you on Twitter. We played Elvis’ “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.” It’s a classic.

    I enjoy the tortured artist trope and your book sounds like it would fit the bill!

  9. Congrats on the new release. Ariel’s Song sounds intriguing.

    We played Faith Hill’s Breathe at our wedding. Why? I can’t even remember the reason. I guess we liked it. Our song now is Let’s Fight by Thompson Square :-D

  10. Hi Robin! Congratulations, Evie, on your new release! I love books with music/musicians in them. My sister sang for us at our wedding, a song called Beautiful in My Eyes, by Joshua Kadison. It still brings me to tears. What a beautiful gift! Good luck with the tour!
