“What do you want, Nicole? Right here, right now, in this moment, what do you want?” I ask, putting it all on the line… pride, love, all of it.
She rolls her eyes. Damn, this girl. She’s fucking amazing. I grin.
“Dumbass, a true dumbass,” she tells me. Then she leans forward, her face right a breadth away from mine. “What do I want?” she asks.
“You. Every single dumbass, stubborn, idiotic piece of you,” she tells me.
“As far as declarations of love go, that one needs some work.”
It’s time for the Kingston triplets to be born.
I’ve heard stories of how women have their water break or go into labor in their home. That’s not how it happened with Lucy and our babies. As long as Lucy and the babies are okay, I’ll be okay–even if we are surrounded by the Russo Famiglia.
But nothing has been normal for us from the day we met. So why would it start now?

The first Rockstar Christmas—told Xander style.
A Very Xander Christmas 2 (Rockstar #6.5)—short story
Coming December 2015
The second Rockstar Christmas—told Xander style.
I have an announcement.
Don’t hurt me, but I’m going to be pushing back the release date of Ballad by a couple of weeks to October 8th. Moving took much more time than I expected and, honestly, we are STILL unpacking and organizing things. It’s insanity.
Also, This book is different. I’ve never written a book like this before, so it’s challenging and I want to get it right. I refuse to put out a book that is shitty just for the sake of meeting a date. I’d rather push back that release date and give you the book you deserve.
If you are planning on yelling at me, all PMs should be directed to Janelle. LMAO KIDDING!!!
Thanks for understanding.
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…”
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…
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.
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.
Janelle is the best PA ever. For real. Not just because she makes me homemade fudge and cookies (she just sent me about 4-5 dozen snickerdoodles!!!) but because she puts up with me. I’m not the easiest person sometimes. I can be demanding and I like things to be done a certain way… and she’s cool with it. She never complains. Ever. Even when she gets shit jobs to do for me… not one complaint.
This is why I’m going to ask you to take a minute or two to cast a vote for Janelle Schindler. She’s up for Best PA and I swear on everything I am she deserves to win this award. So, I’d be super grateful if you could take the time to put a checkmark in the box.
Thank you all so much!
