until someone ends up married.

Found in Oblivion #1
Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott
Releasing Aug 22nd, 2016
Rainbow Rage Publishing


Michael Shawcross is living the dream, opening up for his idols, Oblivion, on his band Warning Sign’s first tour. Until an overzealous fan goes too far and his hard-partying ways catch up to him in the form of an ultimatum from his manager, Lila Crandall.

Clean up your image—or else.

Single mom Chloe Adams is in Vegas for a rare girls’ night out. She wasn’t ever supposed to be attracted to another rockstar. In fact, she’s in rockstar rehab, and the cure for her addiction definitely isn't a sexy, smart-assed guitarist with wicked fingers.

She never expects to accidentally end up his wife. Or to have her new husband suddenly decide that she’s the solution to all his problems. And surprise…he’s happy to show his appreciation in a number of interesting, inventive ways.

Pretending their marriage is real might just be the hottest proposition she’s ever been given.

But what happens when a lie becomes the truth? 

BEYOND OBLIVION - A Rockstar Romance full of sexy fun set within the world of our Lost in Oblivion series! You never know who you'll see show up in the books.

The watery tones of the song seemed to infiltrate her skin. Her hips followed the silky rhythm as she lifted her arms. She closed her eyes just enough so the twirling lights became streaky trails dragging her away from reality. Her fingers brushed over crystals dripping off the overhead lighting fixtures of the bar.
She had enough vodka in her veins to ignore the fact that Michael Shawcross was at her feet. When his fingers skimmed over her calves and around to the backs of her knees, she opened her eyes and met his hooded gaze.
Silver winked from his eyebrow, and the shadow of a beard emphasized the angular lines of his face. He was absurdly handsome. Too attractive to be honest. No man should be that hot and be even remotely attainable.
And yet there she was. On the bar, with the calloused tips of his fingers dragging up the backs of her thighs.
She slid her fingers into his hair. The super short strands sifted around her short nails until she got to the denser wavy section on top. Just enough hair to twist, so she did. She tugged his head back, pressing her knee to his shoulder.
He reached up for her, gripping her waist with his huge hands. His long fingers made her feel tiny. Wanted.
His eyes screamed hunger.
No. Not for her. He wasn’t for her.
Rockstar.
Wrong type.
So much the wrong type.

Too bad the crackling arc of attraction between them wasn’t freaking listening.
Her breath shuddered out as she slid down his body, her breasts rubbing against his firm chest. Muscles everywhere. The breadth of his shoulders wouldn’t allow her to encircle all of him. She held onto what she could, her toes dangling off the floor.
His mouth was right there.
So close that she could taste the tequila shooter on his breath. The bite of lime would still be on his tongue. Her nails dug into his shoulders.
She wanted that lime.
Wanted his afterburn.
She couldn’t remember the last time her skin felt so tight and responsive. She didn’t want to question it. Didn’t want to play it safe.
Safe made no sense tonight.
She covered his mouth. This was no teasing kiss. They’d been teasing since the start of the night. Foreplay had simmered in the air between them, pulsed in the lights and music that followed him around like its own forcefield.
Power and haunting charisma drenched in charm.
She felt the curve of his smile before their tongues tangled.
Slick and dominant, he brought every one of her wants into the foreground. She’d believed the lies she told herself. That she didn’t need a touch. She could live without it. The starvation diet never worked. As soon as she had a taste, the craving became all-encompassing.
Hot. Worse than any drug she could imagine.
Need eroded sense. Sense floated away the moment his taste infiltrated her body.
He demanded participation with a tempting wind of lips and tongue. Just when she thought she would need to rip herself away to breathe, he adjusted their kiss for a teasing hint of oxygen.
Just enough to feed the beast building inside her chest.
Without warning, he scooped her up and carried her across the room. He dropped suddenly and she went free-falling into his lap. Startled, she tried to find her footing, but he pulled her astride him.
“Feel that?” He dragged his lips over her chin to her jaw and down the column of her neck. “Feel how hard I am?”
She sucked in a breath. Please don’t talk. Don’t make me think.



USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn likes music and men, so she figured why not write about both? When she's not writing, she's screaming at men's college basketball games on TV, playing her music too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.

USA Today bestselling author Taryn Elliott is obsessed with rock stars, men, and her unending playlists--maximizing these things seemed like a very good idea. When she's not writing, she's losing hours to hot men on TV, and/or a graphic design project. Multitasking is her middle name.

They decided to combine forces and found that hey...this writing deal is even more awesome when you collaborate with your best friend.

And so Lost in Oblivion was born.

Excerpt:

Stepping closer, he watched her eyes widen slightly, as if she, too, felt that … something between them. She watched him warily, stiffening when he raised a hand to slide her dark, silky hair over one shoulder, smoothing it back to bare her tanned skin. Allowing his fingertips to lightly graze over the top of her exposed shoulder, he heard her slight intake of breath, saw the tiny goose bumps appear on her smooth skin.
“What are you doing, Briggs?” Her voice sounded mostly the same as always—controlled. Yet, he swore he also detected a hint of breathlessness.
Or maybe it was wishful thinking.
“I have no clue, Lee,” he answered honestly, giving a rough sounding laugh. Sobering, he added, “I just felt this urge—like I absolutely had to touch you. Because, for once, you seem so unbelievably touchable.”
She let out a humorless laugh, deprecation in it obvious. “Because I look all girly? That’s why you’re all turned on?”
He knew what she was asking, what she was trying to do, and knew he had to set her straight right then. Closing the remaining distance between them, her back against the wall, his arms braced on either side of her, he bent his head to her ear and whispered, “That’s only part of it. The truth of the matter is that you turn me on regardless of how you look.” When his lips brushed against the shell of her ear, he couldn’t resist a smile when she shivered. “I’m pretty sure you turn me on simply by breathing.”
He felt gratification run through him at hearing her breath come out in a rush. “There’s just something about you, Lee. Something that makes me want to shove you up against this wall and have my way with you.”
His lips dusted along the line of her graceful neck. “Other times, I want to wrap you in my arms and hold you. Protect you from whatever demons you have.” He chuckled softly, breath washing over her skin, cutting off the response he knew was coming. “I know, I know. You don’t need that. You don’t seem to need anything … or anyone. But hell, if I don’t still want to be the one person you do need.”
Inhaling deeply, breathing in her intoxicating scent that was simply her, he backed away slowly, arms dropping from around her. Eyeing her carefully, he held out his arm. “Shall we, milady?”
His breath held as she hesitated, but when she finally reached out to link her arm through his, it came out in a silent whoosh. Patting her fingers lightly, he imitated a John Wayne voice. “You stick with me, Lee, and I’ll take good care of you, lass.”
When she huffed out a breath, giving him the typical eye roll, it didn’t faze him at all. Nope.
What did faze him, what made his heartbeat speed up, gave him the slightest bit of hope, made him feel like he had hit the lottery, had been in the split second before she had given him that eye roll.
Because those beautiful eyes of hers? They had done something they never did, something unusual.
They had crinkled slightly at the corners. And while that might seem completely inconsequential to the average person, for Langley Ford, it was monumental. Because she never truly smiled. Not enough to actually reach her eyes.
But, just then, in their friend’s beach house, he had somehow managed to break through her hardened defenses, to wiggle his way in a little bit. Had managed to make her give the tiniest hint of a real smile.
And, that, right there, gave him hope.

Excerpt:

Dani pointed to the far wall of cages, oblivious to his disgruntlement. “Those are all the dogs whose time here expires. Feel free to take them out into the holding room”—she indicated a white door that had a sign reading holding room— “and do whatever you gotta do.”
Turning her back on him, she squatted down in front of a large cage and opened it. Tyler bent down to see a massive gray dog with black spots and stripes. The dog lifted his head slightly, his floppy ears pricking as she cooed.
“Hey, Fugly, how you doing, bud?” Dani’s hand glided over the dog’s head and neck, and he relaxed back on his side with a whimper.
“What happened to him?” Tyler asked.
“Someone hit him with their car. A yard crew behind them stopped and picked him up, brought him here, but there’s only so much I can do. The X-rays show he needs leg surgery, but my regular doctor is off today, and the prick subbing for him won’t do a damn thing to help.”
Tyler came closer, squatting behind her. The dog lifted his head and met Tyler’s gaze with soft green-gray eyes. Rex’s eyes had been a dark brown, nearly black, but the expression in this dog’s eyes was still the same—filled with trust. This dog wasn’t afraid of humans; he expected them to help him, to ease his pain.
Tyler’s chest clenched. Although he’d trained several dogs since Rex, he hadn’t experienced this pull, this kinship. This big, gray dog was calling to him, and he couldn’t ignore it, no matter how crazy it seemed.
“Release him to me.”
Dani spun his way so fast, she nearly knocked him back. “What?”
“Release him to me, and I’ll run him down to my veterinarian. They’ll go over the extent of his injuries and let me know what he needs.”
Dani stared at him, her gaze wary. “Why would you do that? And what about the dogs you’re supposed to evaluate?”
What the hell was he doing? He wasn’t even sure the dog was trainable, let alone what his injuries were.
But he could still remember Rex’s body as it cooled and stiffened in his arms. There had been nothing he could do to help Rex, but he could help this dog.
“If you will run interference for me with that guy, I’ll drive . . .” Tyler hesitated to call the dog the bullshit name. “I’m sorry; he needs a better name than Fugly.”
Dani laughed, but her voice shook a bit as though she might cry. “The workers that brought him in were calling him that.”
“Not anymore. Whatever his name is, I’ll drive him up there, drop him off, and come back here. If his owners show up, you can give me a call.”
“I don’t have your number.” She closed the cage door and stood up.
“The front desk has it, but do you have your phone on you?” he asked.
“Yeah, I’ll go get it.” She left the room, and Tyler studied the dog. He was probably a good hundred and fifty pounds, which wouldn’t be a problem to carry, but if he had more injuries they couldn’t see, Tyler was concerned about jostling him around and doing more damage. He’d ask Dani if they had a stretcher when she got back.
She came back through the doors and handed him her phone. “Here.”
Tyler stood up, staring at the screen saver of a smiling toddler with his arms wrapped around Dani’s neck. Well, shit, that sent whatever attraction he’d had crashing to the ground. He had three rules for hooking up: Be honest from the get-go, no sleeping over, and definitely no repeats within the same week. And then there were the types of women he steered clear from.
No crazies. No attached or married women. And definitely no single moms.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it. He had watched his own mom get screwed over enough times to know that if you weren’t ready, just stay far away.
Clearing his throat, he swiped his thumb over to her contacts and put in his information. “Cute kid.”
“Thank you.”
“He yours?” he asked.
“Yes, he’s mine.”
Was it just him, or did she sound defensive?
“How old is he?” Tyler handed the phone back to her, disappointed that she was off limits.
“He’s almost two.” Dani slipped her phone into her pocket. Her curt responses told him she didn’t want to discuss her child with a complete stranger, and he couldn’t blame her.
Apparently, he was just a nosy, interfering bastard today.
“About Fugly. I was going to just carry him out, but I’m afraid of causing more damage.”
“He doesn’t have internal bleeding, at least not that showed up on the X-rays. Most of the impact from the car occurred on his back end. Plus, I gave him a dose of pain meds when he first came in, and it should last him a while.”
“Okay then, you get the door, and I’ll get the dog.”
Dani unlocked the cage again and unhooked the dog’s IV, wrapping the tubing over the mobile pole by the cage. As gently as he could, Tyler reached in and picked up the dog, who tried to thrash for half a second before Tyler spoke firmly. “Stay.” The dog stilled, and Tyler stood up with him in his arms. “It’s gonna be okay, boy.” Dani opened the doors as they went, but once they got to the lobby, Lab Coat Guy spotted them and spluttered, “What do you think you’re doing?” Dani puffed up. “He’s taking the dog to his vet, since you won’t do anything to help him.” Tyler had to admire the set of balls on Dani as every eye in the room swung on Lab Coat, pinning him with accusation. “I didn’t say anything like that. I told you his prognosis wasn’t good and he was suffering.” “And I wanted a second opinion, so we’re getting one.” Tyler grinned, following Dani out the door. Pausing for half a second, Tyler gave Lab Coat a warning look. “I haven’t had a chance to evaluate the dogs yet. They’d better all be there when I get back.” Lab Coat swallowed hard, and as she closed the door, Dani laughed. “I think he just pissed himself.” Tyler liked her laugh, light and tinkling, like Christmas bells. “You’re pretty terrifying yourself.” “I don’t let bullies push me around,” she said. “Where are your keys?” “Right pocket.” When the warmth of her hand pushed into his pocket and grabbed his keys, he couldn’t help his physical reaction. It was just too close to the groin, and the way she pressed with seeking fingers against him was enough to give him a semi. Despite it being October, it was still in the mideighties in Sacramento, and Tyler could feel beads of sweat dribbling down the sides of his face as she continued her search; he told himself it was just the heat getting to him.
