Visiting with Carlene Love Flores!!!!

I’d like to extend my gratitude to Antonia for being such a wonderful hostess today. Being on blog tour is fun and a lot of work and when you have such generous and supportive folks offering to help out, there simply aren’t enough ways to say Thank You. The book I’ve brought today is the fifth story in my rock star romance series, The Sin Pointe Novels. Wicked Flower is all about the band’s lead singing bass player, Stefan Calderon. To celebrate its release as well as the series as whole, I got the idea to share some of my favorite Stefan Moments over the yearsat each blog tour stop. Today’s comes from Book 2, Sin’s Flower. Here we have the hero, Jaxon who is also the band’s songwriter, in a bit of a funk. But what I love about this bit is getting to see the process that a Sin Pointe song goes through as it travels from Jaxon’s heart and mind andthen eventually makes its way to Stefan’s heart and voice. I really believe these two guys share a kindred soul which has made them such fun to write about. From Sin’s Flower
He didn’t want to be bothered with anyone else’s shit.  Not while he was figuring out how to become a hero.  He slid his butt down to the floor, back against the padded wall and half sang the words he’d hand over to Stefan to sing from his heart someday soon.  
“I only need her because she’s gone.  I have no idea where she is and I couldn’t care less.  You were always my chosen mess.  I’m not the only one who needs you; wish I could say the same for myself.  I’ll never get another chance if I won’t ask for help.  Just change me, then someone can save me.  I’m the mess.  I’m the mess.”
Jaxon’s toes wiggled in response to the gritty melody.  

And here is the Wicked Flower blurb:
~Editor’s Pick
Sin Pointe front man Stefan Calderon is playing a very dangerous game and his mom’s live-in caretaker, Dani Foster, just landed right smack in the middle of it.
Practically strangers when Stefan rolls into his small hometown looking to patch things up with Mom, his and Dani’s worlds collide with a hot and intense hook up. He knows right away this woman will make the perfect partner for his two weeks in town. But when she realizes whose son he is, and what he’s there to do, sexy times come to an abrupt halt.
That is until they come up with a solution. Rules. Every game needs them. The question isn’t if they’ll break them, but when and how hard.
It’s a wickedly delicious game, one neither of them intends to lose.

Thanks for letting me share with you today. If you’d like to spend more time with Stefan in his own book, you can find Wicked Flower at these lovely places:
