Author Showcase - Nicky Wells

Today I’m hosting fabulous friend and fellow Loveahappyending Lifestyle author Nicky Wells, as part of her launch tour for Sophie’s Run, the second book in her trilogy featuring the rock star and the girl next door.




Hi! My name is Nicky Wells, and I am the author of the Rock Star Romance Trilogy. It’s my great pleasure being here on Janice’s fabulous blog and to give you a peek inside my character’s rock star lifestyle, you see I’ve brought them with me, Dan the rock star and Sophie the girl next door. Or rather, I’ve brought you a little glimpse behind the scenes at one of Dan’s recent gigs in Edinburgh. Are you ready to rock and roll?


The truth, and nothing but the bare naked truth?
 
Now this is a really special treat for you; it’s actually an out-take and this scene isn’t in any of the books. BUT there is mischief, innuendo and more in Sophie’s Run, so go on, join Sophie and Dan on their adventures on this second leg of their journey!


Sophie: *enters the Green Room, skids to a halt, mouth hanging open incredulously* What are you doing?

Dan: *flashes her a smile* I’m getting dressed for the gig. *twirls*

Sophie: I can see that but… what are you wearing?

Dan: *takes a careful bow* A kilt.

Sophie: A kilt?

Dan: A kilt. It’s kinda obvious, don’t you think? *twirls again*

Sophie: *giggles* But… why?

Dan: When in Edinburgh, do as the Edinburghians… the Scots do, right?

Sophie: *waggles her head doubtfully* Don’t you have to be at least part Scottish to wear a kilt, legitimately, like?

Dan: *frowns* What’s the problem? Don’t you like it?

Sophie: I do. I do. You’ve got fine knobbly knees and all that. It’s just…

Dan: What?

Sophie: *shrugs and remains silent*

Dan: What?

Sophie: Well… you do a lot of dancing and jumping in your shows. I must make sure I get to be in the front row tonight.

Dan: *frowns some more* Why?

Sophie: *rolls her eyes* Go on then, do me an air guitar solo of… of… White Poison.

Dan: *obligingly pretends to play the guitar, takes giant leaps around the room* Duurrrr-durrrrr-dur-dur-durrrr-roooinnnng

Sophie: I knew it, I knew it! *chases Dan around the room, trying to get a peek* You’re going commando under there, you are, you so are.

Dan: *screeches to a halt* OMG, is that what got you so excited?

Sophie: Why, of course. I’ve always wanted to know.

Dan: You know wrong.

Sophie: *lifts corner of kilt, then recoils as Dan swats at her hand; steps away, singing* I am so right, I am so right, and there is nothing under there but the bare naked truth…

Dan: Wrrraaaggh! *chases Sophie around the Green Room* Come here you Sassenach wench, I’ll show yer the bare naked truth!

Sophie: *stops abruptly so that Dan crashes into her, swiftly wraps her arms around him* Now then, is that a promise or a threat…?

Great excerpt! Really made me smile. :) Especially as my co-author sometimes wears a (Cornish) kilt...!
