A LITTLE NOTE ABOUT REFRAIN

Posted July 15, 2019 by Anne Mercier in 2019, Anne Mercier, Refrain, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Teaser / 0 Comments

I’m going to warn you now… Refrain isn’t like any other book I’ve written before. It’s mostly Ethan and Linc, but you also get a touch of Summer, Sera, Cage, and even Damian.

The Rockstar storyline still has a lot of open threads that I need to carefully close off and tie with a pretty bow… or a bomb or bullet. No lie… there’ll be some tragedies. It’s not all glamour and gloss now that other “families” besides just the Russos and Manzinis are involved.

Be sure to refresh yourself and reread …
Interlude
A Very Xander Christmas 3
Duet 
Xander: Part 1 
A Very Rockstar Holiday Season 
Xander: Part 2 
Pulse 
before reading Refrain. All of these books take place during part of the same timeline.

The next three books: Refrain, Melody, and Strings are going to make for one hell of a finish for the series.

REFRAIN (Rockstar Book 16)

Linc and Ethan’s Story (m/m romance)
RELEASE DATE:  July 22, 2019 <- Corrected
No preorder.

As a child, I trusted no one.
Then I found my best friends.
They gave me a family and saved me from a life of abuse that still has me messed up.

Then one of those best friends captured my heart.
Lincoln, tough yet tender, a walking contradiction.
He loves me too—flaws and all.
He’s the most patient man on the earth and understands my PTSD.

What he doesn’t understand is why our being intimate makes me feel “dirty”.
He’s not one of the men who abused me and he’d never hurt me. I know this. I believe it.
Still, the “dirty” creeps in even though I know what we do together is anything but.

He’s here now and he’s going to stay.
It’s time for me to talk to someone professionally.
I need to shed my unhealthy past in order to have a healthy future with the man I love.
If I don’t, I just might lose the best thing that’s ever happened to me—and there’s not enough therapy in the world to get me through that.

MELODY (Rockstar Book 17)

Meggie & Trace’s story (m/f romance)
APPROX. RELEASE DATE: Late September

WHEN TRACE’S PAST COMES BACK TO HAUNT HIM,
NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME.

There’s more to Trace Styx than meets the eye.

When his father steps back into his life, it threatens everything he and meggie have made together. It threatens his life, his career, his friends, everything he’s come to hold dear.

Trace hasn’t seen his father since he was kicked out at the age of sixteen, and he’s not going to let this man back into his life. Not now. Not ever.

His father insists, steps over the line in more ways than one, and leaves Trace no choice but to use past secrets to protect himself and everyone he loves.

There’s just one catch – the consequences of what he’s about to reveal are going to change everything for him, for Meggie, and for the group of Rockstars that have become his family.

Everyone around me is falling in love and getting married. Seeing their happiness, I recognize what a lonely existence I’ve been living and I want more.

I am searching for her: my one.
When I walk into Cage and Sera’s new club, Onyx, I can’t believe my eyes.
She’s been right in front of me this whole time.

RECENT RELEASES

THE KISS DUET

Mature Young Adult Romance
AVAILABLE NOW!

If you’re concerned or passing this up because it’s a young adult, I’ve heard more often than not that while the readers aren’t normal readers of YA romance, they thoroughly enjoyed these! Take a chance and give ’em a read!

“I will admit I was hesitant to read this as I normally don’t read YA, but since it’s Anne Mercier I just had to. It’s much different than her other books, but just as good. As with all of Anne’s stories, you get hooked from page 1 and the characters come to life.” – Kathy, Amazon Reviewer

BOOK 1: KISS THIS
BOOK 2: KISS THIS TOO
These links will take you to the book pages and give you all the information you need including purchase links.

THE WAY SERIES
The Way Back To Me and The Way With You

Books 1 and 2, The Way Back To Me and The Way With You, aren’t available for purchase at this time but will be very soon! I’m currently reworking both of them and they’ll be released as brand new books, meaning there’ll be no KU update for the book as the second half book 1 and the much of book 2 are completely rewritten.
I’m hoping to have The Way Back To Me out to you VERY soon! And The Way With You next month.

The Way We Love (Book 3 in The Way Trilogy)

The third and final book in the trilogy, The Way We Love (Sebastian’s book) will be the first book I work on for 2020!

What About Alexa’s Story?

Alexa’s story doesn’t have enough to make it a full book, so I thought it’d be easier to add it to The Way We Love and give you all the information many have been asking for.

What about Cameron?

I do have a spinoff planned for Cam tentatively titled Epic Failure. Possible release date for this book would be in 2021.

EXCERPT – Refrain (Rockstar Book 16)

Posted May 23, 2019 by Anne Mercier in 2019, Anne Mercier, Excerpt, Refrain / 0 Comments

REFRAIN (Rockstar Book 16) excerpt
©2019 Anne Mercier
Unedited and subject to change
 
Linc’s POV
 
We eat our meals, still hearing the camera shutters. I now know why Ethan hates the attention the band gets.
 
“This sucks,” I admit.
 
Ethan smiles softly. “Yes, it does. It’s only going to get worse.”
 
I nod. “I know. You’ll be okay? They may do some digging.”
 
“It’s fine. Everything’s sealed or destroyed. Don’t forget, we’ve got Cage.”
 
“He’s intense. I wish this would be easier for you. I know how you hate this,” I say with a wave of my hand toward the paparazzi.
 
He shrugs. “I’ve been through this kind of thing before with the band, but us? This is going to get worse. Much, much worse.”
 
“Yeah.” Announcing to the world that you’re gay isn’t an easy thing. There are so many anti-gay assholes out there, and I’m worried they’ll hurt Ethan. I can handle myself, but my boy isn’t a fighter. He’s a lover. I rest my hand on top of his on the table and gently squeeze. “If they talk shit, E, let it roll off your shoulders. We know what we’ve got and we’re the only ones that matter.”
 
Click. Click. Click.
 
“This doesn’t just suck, it fucking sucks,” Ethan declares.
 
I nod. “I know, but it’s our life. We just gotta keep it in perspective and ignore all that bullshit.”
 
He nods in return. “I don’t want to know. Cage can deal with that. Celeste said she’d work with Marta on the PR if we needed. Lucy agreed to ‘loan’ her to us.” He chuckles.
 
I smirk. “She’s something. Lucy.”
 
He nods. “That she is. Perfect for Jesse in every way.”
 
“I like that she calls him out on his shit. That’s fucking epic to watch,” I laugh.
 
“You haven’t seen anything yet.”
 
“I can’t wait.”
 
Coming July 22nd.

Refrain release date???

Posted March 26, 2019 by Anne Mercier in 2019, Anne Mercier, Melody, Refrain, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Strings / 3 Comments

I had originally planned for later this year, but I decided to plot out the final three books (Refrain, Melody, and Strings) and write them back-to-back if the voices allow and get them out sooner. I don’t have dates. I won’t even muster a guess, but I’ll be starting on where I left off of Refrain (when I got blocked) starting Monday and I *hope* to have them out at a rapid pace.

Thank you for being patient!

Hugs!

Signature

PS:  I recommend a reread of the entire series before Refrain comes out so everything is fresh in your mind. Starting with A Very Xander Christmas 2 all the way through Pulse have a lot that will relate to Refrain as they are on the exact same timeline. (Books 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15). There is going to be so much to tie up in these next three books!

RE: A Very Xander Christmas Books

Posted November 13, 2018 by Anne Mercier in 2018, Anne Mercier, AVXC, AVXC2, AVXC3, Rockstar Series (ages 17+) / 0 Comments

Hi everyone,

I’m not sure why I’m getting emails from readers asking for me to send them a copy of the Xander Christmas short stories, but they are not free at this time.

I realize there are issues with Amazon search and certain books not appearing for customers, and I apologize on their behalf. I cannot fix this, and even though this is a problem for many, I will not be sending the books out for free.

The links to the three Xander Christmas short stories will be listed below… I hope this helps.

If not, YOU CAN ALSO – email/tweet/post your questions/comments/complaints to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. Their help departments are hard to track down, but once you find them, they’re very receptive. You can try:

I have a present for you! I’m writing a short #Jucy and #Sage story for you all! I’m nearly finished. Just a couple sex scenes and then the final two… and I’ll be uploading it to Amazon. It will be available solely on Amazon as well as in Kindle Unlimited–at least for now. I have no links at this time. As soon as I do, you’ll be the first to know!
