Rock It by Jennifer Chance.
Audience/Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Publication: March 4, 2014 by Random House, LoveSwept
Jennifer Chance unleashes her hot new series with the tale of a smoldering rock star and the fangirl who catches his eye—and finds herself living out her wildest dreams.

Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.

Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.


Excerpt


Dream It Tour: Day 1

Lacey squinted into the early-morning sun as a new car slid into the abandoned parking lot that IMO had commandeered to get the band out of town as quietly as possible. The limo was black and understated, but it still screamed money. Sure enough, Dante Falcone stepped out of it as if it wasn’t actually four thirty in the morning, looking as fresh and unrumpled as the multimedia star he was. He stretched, turning around to look at the opulence his fame and talent had netted for his band, then nodded to the crew members who descended on him, offering him coffee and doughnuts and God only knew what else. Lacey was so caught up just watching the mere magic of him interacting with his people that it took her a few moments to realize he was heading her way. She straightened, squaring her shoulders. I’m a professional. A professional professional. I am good at my job, and I’m only here for my job. Nothing he says will get under my skin, or my clothes, or—
She swallowed, her mind suddenly veering off on a tangent of Dante patiently disrobing her, one clothing item at a time.
Probably better to stop that line of thinking right there.
At that moment, Dante’s head turned to her, as if he could read her thoughts. Struggling to think only of contracts and paperwork and tour details, Lacey plastered on a very professional smile, and waited the remaining few seconds as he ambled up to her. “Glad to see you could finally join us,” he said. “I was beginning to think you didn’t care.”
Despite herself, she stiffened at his teasing rebuke. “Hey, give me a break,” she said. “I had a lot to do to get everything ready.”
“Well, now you’re going to have a lot to do taking care of me.” He pointed a finger at the bus. “This is my bus?” he asked.
At Lacey’s nod, his grin got wider. “Then that’s where you’ll be, too.”
“What?” Lacey shook her head, knowing her voice had been reduced to a squeak, just like that. “That’s entirely not necessary. I can sleep any—be anywhere. I don’t need to be with you every second of the day. I’m not really your manager, Dante, we both know that.”
“Nope, you’re not,” Dante said, agreeing with her just a little too quickly. “But on this tour, you are my handler.” He slipped off his sunglasses, then fixed her with the heat-stoked gaze that had graced a million and one paparazzi photos since the guy had barely been out of middle school. “And Lacey, for the record? I’m in the mood to be handled.”

I come by romance honestly, having spent several years writing adult romance and entering romance contests through Romance Writers of America–including finaling twice in the prestigious Golden Heart contest and winning once. But despite these and other contest wins, my first published novel came not in adult romance, but as a writer of YA historical fiction (you can read all about my Elizabethan spy girls stories, the Maids of Honor, here.)
Still, despite my love of Elizabethan spies, I could never quite give up those super Alpha contemporary romance heroes. So, in the summer of 2013, I decided to see if perhaps I might still have a romance or two up my sleeve.
I wrote a tale about a girl whose biggest high-school and college crush–a rock star–suddenly becomes her biggest client, only now she has to be professional and not betray the fact that she’s completely in love with the guy. It was a fun, sexy, romantic fantasy, and I suggested the idea to my agent… who asked what other ideas I had in addition to this story. Shortly after, the Rule Breakers series was born.
To separate these books from my historical work, I adopted the name Jennifer Chance. I am now pursuing my dreams (pretty much round the clock as it turns out) and am THRILLED to be able to have four e-books coming out in 2014 and early 2015, all with Random House LoveSwept’s New Adult romance line.
As to what will happen from here, who knows? But as long as there is a story to be written and an HEA to be had, I’ll be the one over in the corner, tapping away on my keyboard.
