^^^* COUNTDOWN BLITZ*^^^ Relentless Rhythm by Michelle Mankin

Relentless Rhythm (Tempest #4)
by Michelle Mankin
Publication Date: October 9, 2014
The one she really wants is out of reach.

The one he really needs is already taken.

Dizzy Lowell, rhythm man for the rising rock band Tempest is a wizard on the guitar and a wonder with women. But the hookup specialist hides his emotional scars beneath his suave exterior. He never lets anyone truly touch him.

April Reynolds, the confident bartender of the Diamond Mine, knows her way around a cocktail, but Dizzy has her all mixed up. She knows what’s safe. She’s tired of settling, though. It would be so easy to fall under his spell.

Except for that ring around her finger.

Two searching souls separated by a thin metal band.

Some dreams are dangerous.

Some secrets shouldn’t be shared.

Sometimes what we wish for most can never be. 

*Author note: Each book in the Tempest series features a different band member and can stand alone.*


“You’re one of those guys who doesn’t believe in relationships, I take it?”
“You got that right.” I made a scoffing sound.
“Why’s that?”
Her question blasted me with more force than it should have. I’d been asked that one loads of times. No reason I should tell her the truth though. I feed her the usual lie. “Chicks are only good for one thing in my opinion. And that’s something I’m very good at. So I give them what they want, and they give me what I need.”
“Like a business transaction?” She snorted inelegantly through her delicate nose.
“Yeah.” I lifted my chin and gave her a challenging side stare.
“A mutually beneficial arrangement without the traditional exchange of currency, hmm?”
I nodded.
“Bartering with sex,” she concluded.
It was my turn to raise a brow. I’d heard her dishing out snappy comeback’s to the guys who hit on her in the bar. I knew she was smart, and she’d just slapped me in the face with it. It stung a little bit, but I wasn’t mad. She was just calling it the way she saw it, but sometimes humor had a way of cutting unmercifully close to the truth.
She ran the tip of a finger back and forth over the full bottom lip that I’d imagined tracing with the end of my dick. “Do you offer them a warranty?”

For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn't kill her but the hour and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.
Black Cat Records in Vancouver provides the central backdrop for all of Michelle’s current novels. Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry.
Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the Tempest series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.
When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.
