Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery

* This is a COLLECTION not a SERIES, so there is no need to read them in order. Different characters, different settings. All involve rock star main characters.

It was one of those mornings for newspaper-writer/photographer Hope Creswell.

The alarm clock didn't go off and she cut her finger on broken glass. Not one to let such things get her down, Hope headed into her assignment meeting with excitement, only to leave it stunned. Her new assignment is to trail the sensational rock-star, Chase Hatton, for an article. Chase Hatton! No one knows the power that name holds for her. No one knows of the childhood friendship that blossomed into romance, only to abruptly die on the night of Hope's senior prom. No one knows of the ache that still fills her heart.

What starts out for Chase Hatton as an average publicity trip to Chicago suddenly becomes complicated.

His manager tells him Hope Creswell will be interviewing him in the morning.
He spent eight years trying to forget Hope, and now she would be in his penthouse in a matter of hours?

When Chase opens the door to his penthouse and finds Hope on the opposite side, his heart begins beating a rhythm the rocker has yet to capture in any of his music.

The smoldering embers of their former romance are fanned by their mere proximity. Will they both be burned again? Can Hope ever trust her heart to Chase after what he did? Can Chase bear to see her walk out on him a second time? And what about Hope's boyfriend, Phillip? Where does he fit into the picture that Hope is developing?

A keeper!

Hope Creswell, newspaper-writer/photographer, has a new assignment--follow the sensational rock-star, Chase Hatton and get an exclusive interview. Seems like a dream come true for any young reporter. There is just one problem--Hope already knows Chase very well, and they shared a childhood friendship that had quickly blossomed into a young romance.

Unfortunately, the night of Hope's senior year, the budding romance came to a screeching halt, leaving a hole in her heart that she has yet to fill.

Rock star Chase Hatton's life just got incredibly complicated. His manager has informed him the person going to interview is Hope Creswell. In the last eight years, he has tried to forget Hope; in a few hours his resolve will be test. Can he keep things professional and not want to touch her, hold her, make her his again?

When Chase and Hope meet again after years apart, sparks fly, and hearts beat to a new rhythm.

The second book in the Rocking Romance Collection by M.J. Schiller tells a story of soul mates, of love lost and found again. I love Ms. Schiller's stories; they always make me feel good about love. The story is warm and tender at times, but it shows characters that are real and flawed, as I always expect from an M.J. Schiller novel. It is a bumpy road for these two people to find their way back to each other and it was exciting to be along for the ride. I especially enjoyed the flashbacks to their childhood it made me get a good sense of how they were feeling then.

Ms. Schiller writes a tale filled with second chances and the need to be able to trust in true love. Throw in a side plot with a mafia type businessman and things get interesting.

Another favorite book for me from M.J. Schiller. I just love her stuff, and definitely recommend this if you are in the mood for a fun, sweet love story. It is not necessary to read the first book in the Rocking Romance Collection to enjoy this one.
