Interlude (Rockstar #4) Excerpt

Excerpt – Interlude (Rockstar #4)
©2015 Anne Mercier

“Here’s a list of actresses and models we’re going to choose from,” Cage says and his assistant passes out the list.
Numbers one and two: Serafina Manzini and Luciana Russo. I lift my eyebrows and my gaze goes to Cage’s. He’s watching my reaction but giving none of his own. Does he remember… he has to.
“Holy hell,” Xander shouts, standing up.
“Dude, sit the hell down,” Kennedy tells him.
“No way,” he says pointing to the sheet. “This is it. It’s like fate. Destiny. Divine intervention. This is so it, Jesse.”
I smirk and I swear I see a twitch of Cage’s lips.
“What’s going on?” Cage’s assistant Dave asks.
“Lucy and Sera, dude. We want them. That’s it. Them. No other options. Make it happen,” Xan tells him.
“Uh,” Dave stammers and slides his gaze to Cage.
Cage nods once. “I’ll do my best but it’s not guaranteed those two aren’t booked during that time. They’re my first choices as well.”
“Jesse,” Kennedy murmurs.
I nod in response.
“Make it happen, Cage. Do whatever it takes.”
Cage’s brows raise briefly.
I sigh knowing he’s not going to give in without me telling him why. “All right. Here’s the story…”

INTERLUDE RELEASE DATE!

You’ve been all so great and patiently waiting for Interlude and I’ve been holding out on you. I’m so ashamed… okay I’m not really ashamed. #SorryNotSorry I just needed to make sure I could make this deadline and I’m pretty sure I can… so here it is!!!!! INTERLUDE (ROCKSTAR #4) COMING JULY 9TH.

You know all those questions you have about Jesse, Falling Down, and Cage? They’ll all be answered in this book. You know all those scenes from Falling Down you wanted Jesse’s POV for? They’ll be in this book. You know how you’ve been wanting them to go back on tour? That’ll be in this book. Introduction to the Blush Babies and so much more! Thanks for hanging in there and being so awesome with the delay!

Past To Present…

INTERLUCE COMINGPAST:
It all starts with a glimpse into the past of Falling Down, when Jesse meets Lucy, and everything you’ve wondered about Cage. Let’s see how they got to where they are right now.

PRESENT:

It’s time to go back on tour…
Being on the road will be challenging for me with the Kingston litter on board. Add in the Blush Baby campaign that is now underway, the never-ending threats to the family, the Jesse-obsessed fans, and the changes that have happened since the last time we were on tour, I can’t help but wonder what else is in store for us.
One thing’s for sure: It won’t be boring.

Interlude Snippet…

Interlude snippet… hopefully coming in May….

Cage – Past
When I enter the limo, I’m not really all that surprised by the scene before me. Cesare Manzini being held at gunpoint by one of our men. Ernesto smirks and rubs his hands together.
“Here’s your present,” Giovanni tells Ernesto.
“Best present ever,” he replies.
“I would love to kill you,” Cesare seethes.
Ernesto snorts.
“You’ll never get that chance,” Giovanni tells him coldly.
“I should have killed you when I had the chance,” Cesare tells Giovanni and I lift my gun and point it at his temple.
“You might want to rethink how you speak to Mr. Russo,” I tell him. “You will show some respect.”
Ernesto smirks again.
“Who the fuck are you, boy?” Cesare asks.
“The boy who’s going to kill you,” I respond flatly.
Ernesto leans back in his seat. “He’s no boy, I can assure you that.”
Cesare looks me up and down, just his eyes roaming over my body while my weapon continues to press into his temple.
“Ah, we are here,” Giovanni announces. I lower my gun but my gaze doesn’t waiver from Cesare. Something’s wrong. I feel it. I can’t pinpoint it, I just know it in my gut.
We make our way into the empty warehouse.
“Are you ready to die?” Ernesto taunts.
Cesare sneezes then whispers, “Are you?” He bends over and in a flash he pulls a small gun from an ankle holster. I don’t hesitate. I pull the trigger before he gets a chance. I watch as blood and brain matter spray across the concrete floor and then, as if in slow motion, Cesare’s body crumples to the floor.
“Holy fuck, Nickels,” Ernesto exclaims.
I stand there, arm in the air, finger on the trigger and I wait for remorse to set it. It doesn’t. Why should it? The asshole was going to kill Giovanni. That just can’t happen. I made sure it didn’t.
“Fast reflexes, Cage,” Giovanni tells me.
“I knew something was wrong.”
He nods. “Always trust your instincts.”
Ernesto look at Giovanni with a smirk. “I told you.”
Giovanni nods again. “So you did.”
I have no clue what they’re talking about and, as I watch them pick Cesare Manzini’s lifeless body off the floor, I really wish I did.
“You’ll train him and we’ll groom him,” Giovanni tells Ernesto.
“For what?” I ask.
“Second in command,” Ernesto replies.
“What? No. That’s your position.”
He shakes his head. “I don’t want it. I knew you were the one for the position as I watched you come up in the ranks. Dedication and loyalty are rewarded.”
Are they fucking with me? I’m not even blood related. Is this possible? Do I want this?
Giovanni is watching me closely. “I know what you’re thinking. You of all people should remember, Cage, sometimes family isn’t always blood. Sometimes family is where you find it.”
I nod, thinking of Joan.
“Do you want this?” Ernesto asks.
Do I? Holy fuck what they’re asking me is insane. They’re asking me to be Giovanni Russo’s right hand. They’re asking me to be second in command to the Russo organization—to la Famiglia.
Do I want the responsibility? Do I want the power that comes with that position? Do I want this, really want this?
“Yes,” I answer and both Ernesto and Giovanni nod.
“Then we begin immediately,” Giovanni tells me.
I expected nothing less.

INTERLUDE IS DELAYED

Hi everyone 🙂

I keep getting numerous questions about Interlude and why it’s not on Amazon. Well, it’s delayed. I did put out a couple announcements in the newsletter and one here on my website, a couple on Facebook and Twitter, but for those who missed them, Interlude is, indeed, delayed. As of right now, I don’t have a definite publishing date. I’m *hoping* for May but I can’t promise you anything. Life gets in the way and I really, really don’t want to put out a shitty book so I’m taking a little more time to make sure it’s a book I feel is ready to be published.

I’m sorry for the delay and thank you so much for your understanding.

Hugs and love,
Anne xoxo

Life Just Sucks…

interlude
Hello there, Janelle (awesome PA, Anne’s words not mine) here … I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Interlude is not going to be coming out on the 19th of April. Due to all the things that have been going on in Anne’s life lately. You know “Life Happens” and you know exes are bastards, Anne’s words again.. We don’t actually have even a tentative publish date for you. Sorry but Anne refuses to put out crap work and frankly I wouldn’t let her publish anything that isn’t up to her standards.

So what does this mean? Well it means we are all just going to have to be patient. Yes that includes me too. Now remember she did say that her publishing schedule is subject to change at any time. 🙂 But truthfully you know she is worth the wait. You all know that we won’t be disappointed.

To be kept up to date, please subscribe to the newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/84AXv

Okay now for the happier news. Wha hooo. Anne has been accepted to Claddagh Author Event in Dublin Ireland October 6th through the 9th 2016 http://claddaghauthoreventdublin2016.blogspot.com/

*Author’s Note* – Questions Answered

** AUTHOR NOTE**

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your continued support of the Rockstar series. You all are seriously amazing. I didn’t expect the series to take off like it has, not at all. I wasn’t prepared, but I’m getting there.

While Falling Down and Blush are light-hearted with very little—if any—drama and angst, I thought I should let you know that Amplify has some of both. Neither Sera nor Cage have had an easy life and we learn so much about them and what makes them who they are in this book. I didn’t have a favorite book boyfriend from this series—until now. I absolutely love Cage and I hope you will too. He not only stole Sera’s heart, but he stole mine as well.

For those who’ve asked, yes! Each character will get their own story. This means I’ll be writing this series for years as there are so many. At the end of this book you’ll find tentative* publishing dates for 2015 and 2016 as well as a link to my website where you can find other information such as signings and how to purchase signed paperback copies. Also part of the reason why the dates and titles are subject to change is the fact that the characters seem to have taken on a life of their own and demand, without notice, more of their voices be heard. Such is the case with Jesse and Lucy and I imagine Sera and Cage will do so as well. *All dates are subject to change without notice.

Also, I wanted you all to know that the books will not be available for preorder until maybe around the September/October time frame. I would like to get far enough ahead in the publishing schedule that I don’t have to worry about Amazon’s preorder clauses (which suck). After that, the books should be available for preorder. Until then, I’ll have them out on the release dates listed unless otherwise specified. If there are any changes to the publishing or signing schedules, those changes will be announced in my newsletter and you can sign up for that here (http://eepurl.com/84AXv)

There’s been some unhappiness expressed with the way the books end and this saddens me. I feel like I need to explain how this series works for those who don’t quite understand and are getting frustrated. Hopefully this will help clear up any confusion.

First, I have to point out that this is a series and that means that the series thread of the books will be told throughout many books. If I tried to pack the entire series overlay into one book, it would end up being longer than all of the Harry Potter books put together.

I’ll use this crocheting analogy… Imagine a crocheted blanket as the Rockstar series. Each row is a book. The links holding each row (book) together is the overall series thread. While each couple will get their own book (row) and each book (row) will be unique in overall feel due to the personalities of the hero and heroine, part of the series thread will also be woven into that book and then will continue on into the next book, and the next, and the next tying it all in a pretty little bow until the series ends.

I really hope this helps explain things. If there are any other questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to send me an email at Anne@AnneMercierAuthor.com at any time. I’d love to hear from you!

Hugs and love,
Anne xoxo

If you’re unable to suspend disbelief and escape to the Rockstar Land of Fiction, then this book probably isn’t for you.
As with all the Rockstar books, this book contains mature content and is inappropriate for persons under 18 years of age.
This story contains grief, loss, sadness, darkness, light, happiness, angst, swearing, explicit sex, graphic violence, new beginnings, and soulmates.
I recommend listening to the playlist whenever possible to get the full effect of the story. You may need tissues.
Sera
He’s my protector, my confidante. Then one night he became more. I want him, I need him, and, if I’m honest with myself, I love him. I just don’t know if he’ll ever see me as more than what we’ve always been: friends. I don’t want to lose him but it’s getting harder and harder to keep my feelings to myself. Should I risk it all or play it safe?
Cage
She’s my light, my saving grace. The night we came together I knew I could never live without her. I want her to be mine: my lover, my friend. Maybe, if I can get her to see past all the reasons why we shouldn’t be together, she’ll be my forever. It just might be time to turn it up and go for broke.
