Twentysomething Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.
However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will he just break her heart?
I never listen to music while writing because I need to concentrate, but I do become obsessed with certain songs while I’m writing certain books. I’ll listen to them over and over in the car or on my iphone, picturing the characters, thinking about scenes, letting my imagination go crazy, then write all those ideas down. So music definitely inspires my writing. Here are a few of the songs I was obsessed with while writing Sweet As Sin. (Links open Amazon Music window.)

If you’re like me, you find rock stars irresistible. There’s just something fantastic about a man who can make tattoos and a pair of tight leather pants into an entire outfit. Here are my top five reasons I find rock stars so sexy, in no particular order.
Lord save me from men who know how to swagger. That cocky, you-know-you-want-me walk tells the ladies that not only does he think he’s the best, he’s got the goods to back it up. He oozes self-confidence, and you can’t wait to watch him go to work. On you.
There’s magic in his voice, his eyes, his fingers…and I’m not just talking about between the sheets! Rock gods must have talent galore to rise to the top of their profession. He’s not just another pretty face, he’s a gifted musician and songwriter, and all that talent is a massive turn-on.
Admit it; his glamorous lifestyle is a major plus. The parties, the private jets, the fifty-city world tour…what girl wouldn’t want to hop along for the ride of her life? But beware if you’re the jealous type; women literally throw themselves at his feet. You’ll be stepping over swooning groupies everywhere the two of you go.
He’s got pull, and it shows in a million ways, both big and small. Whether it’s a private audience with the President or a private night at Disneyland (because he bought out the whole park for your first date), a rock star can get anything he wants. This Prince Charming really can make all your dreams come true.
He’ll whisk you off to exotic island locations on a moments’ notice. He’ll shower you in expensive gifts. He’ll write a song just for you…or maybe an entire album. Every day with your rock god will be more interesting than any other day you’ve ever had. And if you’re really lucky, he’ll pop the question and give you that happily-ever-after you deserve.
