Check out a preview of CHASING ALYS!

When love’s song takes over, I’m forced to find the beat.

Heartbreak has been my dance partner for years, but I’m done. Love is a complication I no longer want. Especially from a rockstar.

Ryan Evans is the very definition of heartbreaker. Women line up so he can rock their worlds.

Not me. I’m determined to resist his charms.

Who cares if he has striking blue eyes, and a voice that lights me up? Our beats are thoroughly out of sync.

I am definitely, one hundred per cent, never again waking up to a stupid thank you note, for a night that probably shouldn’t have happened, with a guy who’s already on a plane out of here.

Except, there’s something about Ryan’s charming determination that gets past my defences. He creeps into my heart… and my bed, until I’m so wound up in him, there’s only one way it can possibly end…

Heartbreak! Mine. Again.

Chasing Alys is a full length steamy rock star romance. It is the first book following Rhiannon and the first in the True Platinum Series.

Chapter Seventeen Deleted Scene

My editor thought that Ryan had given Alys too many gifts, so we decided to cut the following scene, but I love Alys’s interactions with her colleagues too much to let it disappear into the ether.

“Delivery for Alys Morgan,” called a woman from the kitchen area that connected us to the office next door.

“Right here,” Nick said, pointing at me from his crouched position on the floor at my side.

He was sorting his camera gear into manageable travel cases. I did not envy him having to country hop with two cameras and lights. That was a level of stress drama freed me from.

The delivery woman placed a large paper bag on my desk and disappeared with nothing more than a smile.

“I didn’t hear you order lunch,” Gemma murmured, her focus fixed entirely on the spreadsheet filling her screen. She was squinting at it and rubbing her forehead, the universal sign that the figures weren’t adding up.

“That’s because she didn’t.” Nick shuffled towards me sniffing at the bag. “Smells like Indian.” He reached up for the card and I batted his hand away.

“Don’t you have kit to organise?” I glanced at the clock. “You’re leaving for the airport in two hours. Chop chop.”

Laughing, he settled back on his hunches. “I’m going nowhere until you tell us who this mystery man sending you gifts is.”

That snagged Gemma’s attention, she swung towards us in her swivel chair with her hands clasped together. “Yes, dear Alys, do share.”

I pressed my lips together to contain my amusement. “You two are something else. Can I eat in peace please?”

Detaching the note, I slid it under my notebook. I thought I was inconspicuous with the manoeuvre. Gemma’s stare told me I’d failed.

“The quicker you share, the quicker we get back to work.” Gemma shrugged and Nick agreed.

I sank back in my chair with resignation. “It’s just this guy I met at a gig.”

Nick gestured for me to continue. “Vague won’t get me back to sorting microphones.”

Groaning, I continued. “He’s in a band. I didn’t see them play until later, but they’re pretty good.”

“Have I heard of them?” Gemma asked, swinging back to her workstation. Her fingers hovered over the keyboard, ready to type out a search.

“I don’t know. They’re called Rhiannon.”

Nick shook his head next to me. “Never heard of them.”

“Me either, but…” Gemma’s eyes widened as the search loaded. “I went to school with him. What the hell?” Gemma was pointing at James’s moody face in the Rhiannon line up.

“Is it him?” Nick asked and Gemma’s gaze swung back to me.

“No, it’s him.” I pointed to Ryan.

“Damn, Morgan. You’ve got an eye for man candy.” Nick muttered, eliciting an over-the-top snort from Gemma and a chuckle from the Head of Production across the room.

We all froze. He couldn’t have heard us. We were practically whispering. My eyes flicked to him and my face immediately started burning at the sight of his grinning face.

I sank down in my chair and covered my face. Oh, the mortification.

Gemma tapped my arm in solidarity and mercifully the pair of them went back to work. I dished up the small Indian lunch platter Ryan had sent me and dug in.

Best. Meal. Ever.

And it came with samosas. I was in heaven.

It was a full thirty minutes before I dared look at the note.

A little birdie said you didn’t eat lunch yesterday. Thought I’d help out today just in case. Indian’s your favourite right? – love Ryan x

I’d bet my dance shoes the birdie was Emily. Considering I got Indian out of the deal, I couldn’t find the energy to be mad about it.

My phone buzzed on the desk. Gemma glanced at me briefly as I scrambled to find it. I’d gained a lot of paper today and it was buried under them, somewhere.

Unearthing it, I sat back and opened Ryan’s text with a small smile pulling at the edges of my lips.

“Oh, to be dating a rock star,” Gemma muttered beneath her breath. My glance was sharp, but she just smiled, her nod towards my phone telling me to get on with it.

Ryan: Did you get my present, Red?

Alys: Red?

Ryan: Yeah, it’s my new favourite colour. I love your hair. X

Ryan: You don’t like it?

Ryan: I need to call you something.

Alys: How about Alys?

Ryan: Nah. I like Red. I’m sticking with it.

A nickname. Not even Emily had given me a nickname. My heart swelled and my eyes inexplicably began to burn.

Ryan: The food?

Alys: It was delicious. Thank you.

Ryan: Good. Glad my absence isn’t making you starve yourself.

I rolled my eyes.

Alys: Was that the cocky rock star talking?

Ryan: Yes. Sorry. Can’t take him anywhere.

Ryan: What did you think of the lyrics?

Alys: Lyrics?

Ryan: *eye-roll emoji* Turn the note over.

I flipped the paper and sure enough there was a verse of lyrics scrawled elegantly across the small page.

Do you remember the shift in the air when I found you? / Fire on your face and silence in the hall / ‘Cause I remember the look in your eye that day / Words flow and vision shifts until there’s only you.

“What does it say?” Gemma asked, leaning towards me.

I must have gasped because even Nick had stopped arranging the kit.

He couldn’t mean what I thought he meant. He’d seen me on set months ago. Why would that moment make someone fall for a complete stranger?

I picked my phone back up and decided to play ignorant.

Alys: Pretty. What’s it about?

Ryan: You already know.

Alys: Maybe. Still want to hear it from you.

Ryan: Shy doesn’t suit you.

Ryan: Fine. Day on set when you defended the girl. Told you it stuck with me.

I retyped my reply three times before I settled on making him fill in the gaps. I could make myself outright ask if the lyrics were literal.

Alys: What exactly are you trying to say?

Ryan: You inspire me.

Alys: In the musical sense?

Ryan: Interesting differentiation. What did you think I meant?

I breathed out a sigh of relief. Or I told myself it was relief.
