A Very Xander Halloween

A VERY XANDER HALLOWEEN
A Rockstar Short Halloween Story
©2017 Anne Mercier
 
.
“They’re too young to eat candy. We are *not* taking them trick-or-treating,” Lucy tells them.
Xander pouts. “But… they’d get extra candy because they’re so cute.”
Lucy rolls her eyes. “No.”
“The least you could do is let me dress them up,” Xander replies.
Lucy looks him up and down, arms crossed. Her gaze slides over to Jesse’s and he just holds up his palms in a “don’t even get me involved” pose. She rolls her eyes again and huffs.
“Fine. But nothing permanent and nothing that isn’t organic. I don’t need Kierah or Konnor getting another rash.”
Xander nods with each direction, grinning like a loon. “Excellent!” He rubs his hands together and takes off toward the nursery.
Lucy looks over to where Jesse, Kennedy, and Ethan are standing, looking at her dumbstruck.
“I just made a mistake, didn’t I?” she asks, cringing.
Ethan nods and mouths, “Yep.”
“Crap.”
***
“Dude,” Kennedy says when he walks into Xander’s room thirty minutes later. “Lucy’s going to either love you or hate you for this. There will be no in between.”
Xander nods. “I know, but this is epic, right? I mean, look at them!”
“It’s a good thing they had four of them instead of three,” Ethan tells them.
“Nah,” Xan replies. “I’d have gone a different way.”
“When are you gonna show Luce?” Kennedy asks.
Xander grins big. “No time like the present.”
***
“Lucy,” Xander calls out.
“Done so soon? It better not give them a rash!” she replies.
“Yes, and all organic. No rashes. You ready?” he asks.
“Everyone’s already here, they’re just in the studio. Let me get everyone together because I have a feeling this is going to be something the whole family is going to want to see.”
“Perfect. Fifteen minutes,” Xan responds, then bolts back to his room.
“Oh boy,” Lucy whispers.
***
“Presenting: The Kingston K Quads!” Xan shouts. “Kaid!”
Both of them are wearing black stretchy pants and a black and red tight tee along with black Chucks… and a mustache… yeah, the pornstache kind.
“Oh boy,” Lucy whispers with a laugh.
Then music starts to play. Queen. Bohemian Rhapsody. Everyone snickers. Then Xander starts singing along with it, holding Kaid, back to chest, and maneuvers his arms.
“Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality”
He continues through the entire song, complete with head-banging a baby Kaid.
When Xander and Kaid exit the room, everyone’s laughing and talking about how awesome that was.
***
Five minutes later Xander shouts, “Konnor!”
Faith by George Michael starts playing and everyone grins.
Out come Xander and Konnor with blonde George Michael wigs, fake earrings, white pants, white Chucks, and a white tee that says “Make It Big.”
“Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not every-body
has got a body like you
baaa-bay!”
They both dance and wiggle and giggle, working the room, and Ethan laughs so hard he’s got tears rolling down his face.
When it’s over, Ethan gives them a standing ovation, still laughing.
***
Another five minutes later Xander shouts “KILLIAN!”
Out come Xander and Killian, decked out in Prince’s purple suit, black wigs and a short beard.
Kiss by Prince begins to play.
“You don’t have to be beautiful
To turn me on
I just need your body baby
From dusk till dawn”
They dance and work it and each time Prince sings “kiss”, Xan puts Killian’s hand to his lips and Killian kisses his hand then blows.
“He must have been working on that for a while,” Jesse comments with a grin.
“That is so adorable!” Meggie bounces.
When it’s over, they all clap and cheer.
***
“I am dying to see what he does with Kierah,” Sera says excitedly.
“I can only imagine,” Cage replies.
“It’s going to be amazing!” Meggie tells them.
Closer to ten minutes later, Xander announces, “Kierah!”
Both Xander and Kierah enter the room decked out in ripped fishnet stockings, high top Chucks, a mini skirt black, pink short tank and one of those off-the-shoulder sweatshirts- purple. They’ve both got long messy hair wigs with a ribbon holding the hair back from their faces. Let’s not forget the gloves with the fingers cut out, bangle bracelets, big cross necklace, and dangly earrings.
Everyone gasps and then starts laughing.
When Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” starts playing, the laughter gets louder.
“I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it thru-u
Didn’t know how lost I was
Until I found you-u”
They dance like Madonna, complete with the crawling across the floor (while Kierah’s strapped to his chest) and rolling onto their backs.
Everyone in the room is in hysterics, even Cage. There is no resisting the allure of Kierah and Xander’s antics. Kierah’s as dramatic as he is.
Lucy manages, between laughs, “She’s got flare! It’s both endearing and frightening how much she’s learned from her Uncle Xan.”
Then they’re laughing again, all of them, including Kierah and Xander. Mrs. M and Mr. M bring the boys back in the room to join the fun.
Everyone’s singing and dancing with the kids, enjoying Halloween–Xander style.
Lucy pulls Xander aside and gives him a hug.
“You make every holiday memorable and special.”
He grins big. “Every holiday should memorable and special–Just like me.”

Xander Book 2

Posted October 26, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Xander2 / 2 Comments

I’ve been asked 10,000,000,000,001 times … When is Xan Book 2 coming out? Well, folks… it’s like this. I’m working on it now. I am hoping sometime in November… I have to make sure to tie up all the loose ends because, honestly, I want their happily ever after to be complete with this book.

BUT… I don’t have a date and won’t announce one until he’s in the hands of my editor.

Patience grasshoppers. He’s coming.

To be kept up to date on all announcements, please subscribe to my newsletter!

Xander, Book 2

Posted July 21, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Xander2 / 10 Comments

As you all know, the book has been delayed. As a courtesy to you all so I won’t disappoint you again, I won’t set a date until it’s in the hands of my editor. Then and only then will I post an announcement of the release date. Sorry for any confusion.

I want to assure you, I’m working diligently on Xander and Tera’s book… and it shouldn’t be too much longer.

Thanks for your patience.

As for my health, the kidney infection is finally gone. Whew. It makes a difference in my day-to-day energy level and if I could, I’d dance a jig… but that’d suck all the energy for the day  lol   I’d rather spend that on writing.  Things are slow with kidney disease and there’s minimal improvement in my numbers but, as my doctor said, it’s going to take time. I want so much to get back on track and not be so exhausted all the time… I’m figuring it out with diet, medication, vitamins and supplements so, again, that takes time.  But I will figure it out! I promise.

Hugs!

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT – XANDER: Book 2, The Present

Posted June 15, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Xander2 / 13 Comments

You’ve all been so amazing and supportive of me… I’m gonna give you something in return.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT
XANDER: Book 2, The Present
(Rockstar Book 10)
©2017 Anne Mercier

“I just wanted to force her to talk to me. To look at me. To feel me. Me! Xan. Her husband. Not the drummer for Falling Down. Not the fucked up kid who pushed her away. I wanted her to see me, the man who loved her with every breath he took. She got so upset, I left. But I went back the next day. And the next. I brought her candy. Flowers. I wrote her poems. I wrote her love letters. Finally, I just went there… with just me. I’d knock on the door and she’d answer… I’d kiss her softly and whisper how much I loved her. Then I’d leave.”

“But you went back,” Nicole sighs wistfully.

“Every. Single. Day.”

“For how long?” Summer asks.

“As long as it took.”

Summer frowns. “For what?”

“For her to say it back. It was then she saw me. She felt me. We worked through all of our shit and I saw her as much as I could, we talked every day, but when Lucy married Jesse, I saw what I was missing with Tera. I wanted that. I wanted it every day. So I asked her to come to me on Christmas three years ago. She didn’t answer. I asked her again the year before this last one and she said yes. I’ve been waiting and she’s been working damn hard to overcome—everything. All of it. She’s almost there. We’ve still got some work to do, but I have no doubt in my mind she’ll be there soon,” I tell them, then sit back in the chair, finally seeing them. There are mixed expressions. Grief. Sadness. Wistfulness. Determination. Anger—Sera’s so angry. I know we’ll be having a talk later, likely with Batman as well.

I was twelve when I started crushing on him.

I was seventeen when I met him by chance and our connection was made.

Now here I am, twenty-three, and I’m one of the two actresses in the video for his band’s latest single.

Jesse Kingston is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I’m finding hard to resist. It ends up not being as simple as doing a job and going home. It can’t be when he continually makes his presence known with his not-so-innocent touches and sexy words. There is no avoiding him and after spending so much time with him, I’m not sure I want to.

So, when he proposes a weekend together, knowing I should say no, I throw caution to the wind and instead I say yes. I’m going to ignore the warning signs and do what I normally wouldn’t–I’m going to give in to my desire. I’m going to indulge my fantasies and give this sexy rocker what he wants and something he won’t forget–me.

The only question is: Is one weekend going to be enough? Will our time end up changing this bad boy? Or will it end up changing me?

DISCLAIMER This book contains remnants of a teenage crush. A straight-laced Hollywood actress. A sexy bad boy rockstar. Rockers who live and breathe sarcasm and sexual innuendos. Explicit wild monkey sex and dirty talk. Graphic language, frequent dropping of the F bomb, career changes, bossy parents, panty ripping, and rock n’ roll. Not for the faint of heart.
HEAT LEVEL: WHITE HOT.

LIVE!!! Xander: Book 1, The Beginning – Rockstar Book 9 LIVE!!!!

Posted April 30, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Xander / 3 Comments

Xander: Book 1, The Beginning
Rockstar Book 9

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25562010-xander-part-1

We met at the age of eight. That day on the playground was a turning point in my life. She stole my heart with just a glance as she sang off key.

But nothing’s perfect.

I figured out pretty quickly she was too good for me, so I let her go.
I thought I was doing the right thing–until I realized I wasn’t. 
She was my everything and without her I was nothing.

When we reunited, my heart became whole. My life had meaning. We loved fiercely and completely. Life was perfect.

The more success I gain with Falling Down, the further away I’m pulled from Tera. But she gains success of her own, and the distance grows immeasurably.

She wants me to live my dreams and I want the same for her. We both know our love is strong enough to survive time and distance.

Then the unthinkable happens and nothing will ever be the same again.

It’s ten years later, and we’re still living separate lives. While I know she isn’t comfortable with my lifestyle after everything she’s been through, I can’t be without her anymore.

I need her.

She’s my wife.
She’s my heartbeat.
She’s my next breath.
She’s my everything.

I want to know every detail of her life. I want to be part of it all. I want to work as hard to get there as she did to get here.

She’s always been my girl—even at the age of eight. As I face her now, there’s no doubt she’ll be mine until I draw my last breath as I will be hers.

It’s time for our forever to begin.
