Metal Heart (Meredith Shayne)

Metal Heart is the next book to be published by the lovely and very talented Meredith Shayne! Yes, I must admit that I'm probably the slightest bit biased as I am lucky enough to count Meredith as a friend, but putting that to one side I have been drooling over Metal Heart for a number of months and since it is to be released by Dreamspinner Press on 28 January I thought I would bring it to your attention:
Scott King swore off rock stardom after his band, King Phoenix, crashed and burned. Now in his forties, Scott lives a quiet life as a music producer and session guitarist. But in a box hidden in his wardrobe lie the relics of the past he left behind—a past filled with drugs, booze, and broken hearts. For sixteen years, Scott has had no contact with his former bandmates, so when he’s asked to play at a benefit gig for King Phoenix’s old sound man, his world turns upside down. A King Phoenix reunion means a run-in with Scott’s ex, Ash Walker—and sixteen years ago, believing Ash wanted to leave the band, Scott OD’d and almost died.

Since then, Scott has ruthlessly suppressed his feelings. As a result, he's completely unprepared for the impact of seeing Ash again, or for dealing with his emotions about the band’s demise. He definitely didn’t expect Ash to want to start up where they left off. Now Scott has to decide between his safe existence and the twenty-year-old love song that could cost him his sobriety—and his heart.
And isn't the cover just gorgeous?

    1. Its sounds like lots of angst (which I love). And I like the fact that the characters are a bit older :)

    2. No, he's not. Neither of them are. The ring on the cover is just a ring, not a wedding ring. :)

  3. For the love of God, Blogger does not make it easy to post a comment! And it looks like I have to do it anonymously. Here's my third try:

    Thanks for the plug. :) Not long to go now, this time next week and it'll be out!

    Meredith :)

    1. For some reason I think each program has decided to not play nice with the others, because I was going nuts the other day trying to post on LiveJournal!

      And no, not long to go now! *excited*
