Hello, Readers. Fellow author Harmony Kent is here today talking about her latest book, Backstage which releases later this month. Please welcome Harmony to my blog.
Hello, everyone. Harmony here. First up, huge thanks to Joan for hosting me today! She’s letting me visit today so that I can tell you about my latest book, Backstage. It is an erotic romance novel and deals with some of the sexual coercion scandals that have hit the acting industry in the last year.
Here’s a bit about the book for you:
SHE’S A HOPEFUL ACTRESS
Just when Emma thinks she’s found love. Just when her big chance comes. Just as she finds a little confidence at long last. Right then, it all goes horribly wrong.
HE’S HER MENTOR
John believed he had found ‘the one’. But the demons of his past wouldn’t allow him to break the leash, and when he gets the wrong end of the stick, it just confirms all his old prejudices and hurts.
THEN THERE’S THE BIG MAN WHO CAN MAKE OR BREAK A CAREER, AND THE DEMANDS HE MAKES
Derek Prentis is his name. Coercion is his game. He’s the man with the money. The big man who wants to keep Emma under his control and who will do anything to keep it that way.
THE PERFECT STORM OF ROMANCE, PASSION, AND GREED.
AWAY FROM THE LIMELIGHT, IT’S ALL HAPPENING BACKSTAGE.
And here is a ‘sneek peek’ …
Jeanine led them to a small room at the back. Mel sat in there waiting. When they entered, she looked worried and rose to her feet. Emma hastened to reassure her, ‘It’s okay. Look, I’m sorry about earlier. It just took me by surprise, seeing you. Are you all right?’
Mel retook her seat on the small sofa, and Jeanine and Emma occupied the two furnished chairs. Emma glanced around. The room appeared to be some kind of reception/waiting area. With its walls of warm oak and its thick carpeting, it felt cozy and welcoming.
Mel cleared her throat. ‘I should be the one apologizing. I never should have gone along with him.’
Emma couldn’t quite hold in her anger. The whole thing still felt too raw, especially with the hearing looming. ‘So, why did you?’ Right, because it’s not like you didn’t let him coerce you, is it, dearest?
Mel’s next words echoed Emma’s thoughts, ‘He did the same thing to you.’
Stubborn, in denial, Emma shook her head. ‘It’s not the same thing. And I got out of it as soon as I could.’
Mel jumped to her feet and yelled, ‘This is me trying!’
Her unexpected outburst startled Emma and gave her pause for thought. She couldn’t refuse to admit the truth of it any longer. With a bowed head and a subdued voice, she said, ‘Yeah. You are.’
Mel dabbed at her eyes and sought encouragement from Jeanine, who nodded and smiled. Mel looked at Emma. ‘I plan on going to the police tomorrow. It seems about time I added my complaint to the list.’
