Cadence (Ruby Riot)
Author: Lisa Swallow
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 5, 2015
Tegan Hughes joins Blue Phoenix and Ruby Riot on tour, and drummer Bryn isn’t the only one who notices his little sister isn’t a kid anymore.
Jax Lewis is the guitarist for Ruby Riot and the band are rising to success. He’s hot property and loving every minute of his new found fame. Now, he’s on tour supporting Blue Phoenix and living his rock star life to the full. Until Tegan walks into his world and puts the brakes on.
Tegan Hughes is taking a year out and has her sights set on touring Europe with her big brother’s band. Blue Phoenix drummer, Bryn isn’t happy when his sister arrives unannounced at his hotel in Lisbon, but Tegan isn’t the type of person to take no as an answer.
With her big brother breathing down their necks, Jax and Tegan attempt to keep a handle on their growing attraction but that proves harder than they thought. Jax is used to getting whoever and whatever he wants and after kissing Tegan once, he knows one thing…he wants more.
The problem is, Tegan isn’t rock star girlfriend material. She has ambitions of her own and refuses to let anything stand in the way of her plans. But when Jax and Tegan’s relationship becomes public knowledge life becomes a hell of a lot more complicated.
Cadence is the first standalone book in a new rock romance series, Ruby Riot. The series is a spin-off from the Blue Phoenix books but you do not need to read the Blue Phoenix series first.
Top Seven List
In the book, Ruby Riot and Blue Phoenix are on a European tour. I lived in Europe when I was younger and thought I’d list my top places.
In no particular order… My readers may recognise some of these locations from Cadence and my other books.
1. Amsterdam, Netherlands
Jax and the band visit Amsterdam which ends in drunken confusion. I lived on the Dutch and German border for a number of years and loved this part of the world. Amsterdam is a city of contrasts and not only about the nightlife! I only stayed a couple of nights but would love to visit again.
2. Berlin, Germany
When I was a teen, I visited Berlin with my parents. This was when the city was still divided by the Berlin Wall. I had mixed feelings about the city back then and would love to return and see the modern day Berlin
3. Interlaken, Switzerland
I’ve visited here a couple of times and this really is a beautiful part of the world. I loved catching chairlifts up the mountains (no way I could walk!) and somewhere there’s a photo of me standing inside the mouth of a glacier.
4. Edinburgh, Scotland
Shortly after I graduated from university I attended the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and stayed with a group of friends who were performing in a show. The atmosphere and history of the city sticks in my mind. Another place I’d like to return to!
5. Rouen, France
I’ve never visited Paris but travelled to a few places in France. I taught English to French business people in Rouen. Living there was strange, very different to visiting as a tourist!
6. Pembrokeshire, Wales
This has to be on the list! Blue Phoenix are from St Davids in Wales and although I never lived there, I did live nearby. Amazing beaches (a little colder than the Perth ones I visit now) and I have great memories of walking my dog along them as a child.
7. Venice, Italy
I only have vague memories of Venice as I was a child when I went, but the images stay with me. Especially my younger brother getting attacked by pigeons in the famous St Marks Square! And my disappointment at not taking a trip on a gondola.
Lisa is an Amazon bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romance. She is originally from the UK and moved to Australia in 2001. She now lives in Perth, Western Australia with her husband, three children, and Weimaraner, Tilly, who often makes appearances on Lisa’s social media.
Lisa’s first publication was a moving poem about the rain, followed by a suspenseful story about shoes. Following these successes at nine years old there was a long gap in her writing career, until she published her first book in 2013.
In the past, Lisa worked as an English teacher in France, as an advertising copywriter in England, and ran her own business in Australia. Now she spends her days with imaginary rock stars.
She lived in Europe as a child and also travelled when she left university. This has given Lisa stories which would sound far-fetched if she wrote them down, and maybe one day she will. These days, Lisa is happy in her writing cave, under Tilly’s supervision.
