Wow, just wow. I’m not sure where to begin....
Chelsea has loved Asher since she was sixteen and no matter how hard she tried to hate him or forget him she was never able too. After five years Asher walks back into her life. She does her best to keep him at a distance, but when he gets a job at Tapestries she can’t avoid him any longer.
After some advice from a co-worker she decides to try to be friends with Asher, hoping that she can control her feelings and keep the stone fortress around her heart in place.
When tragedy strikes Asher is there for her and that one night they spent together will change her life forever. Asher is once again gone from her life and shredded her heart. She had no idea why he cut all ties with her when their friendship was going so well
When she meets the new bar manager she is floored by the good looking Viking and the instant attraction she feels toward him. Placing Asher on the back burner she pursues a relationship with Tage. When everything was going so perfect in her life she was hit with a bomb that risked ripping it all from her.
Many months later she runs into Asher and his reason for running from her was like being punched in the chest. I didn’t see it coming and my heart broke.
I can’t ruin this read for you and tell you what happens between her and Tage or Asher. You will have to read. I will tell you that I couldn’t put this book down, nor could I read it fast enough. It was great.
5 HUGE Stars!!
“Go dump a cold drink on his crotch,” Willow suggested as we watched the disgusting display from the shadows across the room. “That’ll cool him down.”
I shook my head. “I’m not going to stoop to his level. Trust me, ignoring him will hurt him worse than if I spilled a drink on him. That’s why he’s working here right now. I was doing my best to pretend he didn’t exist, and he can’t stand that. It’s the Asher Pratt Theory of How The World Revolves Around Me. He thought because he took me to the hospital, it negated all the other shit he’d done to me. ”
“He is gorgeous though.” Willow clucked and shook her head. “I can see how something like that could burrow into your psyche and stay there.”
Wild Angel (A Rock'n Tapestries novel, #2) - Coming 2014
A young guitar prodigy trying to discover who she really is. A husband fighting to hold his family together. A wife struggling with the feelings she has for a musician who’s been dead for nearly nineteen years.
And a man who will battle from beyond the grave to protect his only child.
Nicks Sorenson, guitarist extraordinaire for the band Wild Angel, has a lot going on during her last year of high school. In fact, she sometimes wonders if someone has painted a bull’s eye on her forehead.
Stone Jensen, lead guitarist for the band Heavy Remedy, shows up everywhere she plays despite the bad blood between them. The high school principal is targeting her with endless detentions for some reason. And she’s starting to think maybe her mother is losing her mind.
A dream seems to set inexplicable events in motion. Things get even weirder when she learns the name of the man who willed her the four guitars she now owns.
Nicks Sorenson is about to find out what you don’t know can hurt you.
Though I write contemporary romance under the name Shari Copell, my real name is Sherry Jesberger. I write a historical fantasy/paranormal romance series under the name S.L. Jesberger.
I am an eleventh generation native of Pennsylvania. My husband Gordon and I raised three lovely daughters, one of whom designs my book covers. Another daughter drew the map in the front cover of my historical fantasy series.
I’ve always had stories swirling through my head. Crazy stuff, totally whack situations. I was a voracious reader as a child, choosing to escape into the world of books. I wrote stories when I was a teen, but quit as I grew up. (Keep in mind, there were no computers then. Writing a book or story consisted of a brand-new notebook and a ballpoint pen.) I found some of these early stories as I cleaned out my grandmother’s house after she passed. Unfortunately, I threw them away.
I started writing again in 2012 after my husband lost his job. Aislin of Arianrhod was published in October of that year. I immediately began to work on the second book in the series, Winter’s Child.
Sometime in the middle of writing Winter’s Child, I had the inexplicable urge to swear like sailor, use modern vernacular, and write steamy sex scenes. I was amused and tried to push it aside. The language in a historical fantasy is obviously much different from a contemporary romance, so I had to behave myself.
I finally just thought, fuck it. I’ll do it. It was during that time that I started to write “Micah’s Island.” I simply needed to purge the wild story that had taken over my brain by then. It was so much fun to write. What would happen if you met a man who had never seen a grown woman before?
I chose the pen name Shari Copell because Micah’s Island was so very different from the Àlainnshire series. Copella was my grandmother’s maiden name—I just dropped the A.
For the most part, people seemed to like Micah, though he was a man of few words. I got some nice (and not so nice) emails about it, mostly from people wanting a better ending. I promptly wrote them one.
I wasn’t sure I would ever write another contemporary romance until Rock’n Tapestries dropped into my head, nearly complete from beginning to end (though I did run some things past Tara Chevrestt, who edits for me. Her suggestions were invaluable.) You just have to indulge your muse when that happens, as it doesn’t happen often.
Though the names and situations have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent, some of the things in Rock’n Tapestries were things that actually happened to me. My husband was wearing a bass guitar the first time I ever laid eyes on him. As Chelsea says of Tage, “ I think I might’ve had to scoop my jaw off the floor.” He’s the skinny dude in the gray tank top and orange guitar on the far right in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lXGyaHNWRI
I hope you’ve enjoyed Rock’n Tapestries. I’m currently having a blast working on a book about Nicks Sorenson, Asher’s daughter. I love this girl! It should be out sometime in 2014.
In the meantime, rock on!
