Love Rocks Book Tour & Giveaway: Rock n Roll Promises by AmBear Shellea

I'd like to welcome AmBear Shellea, author of Rock n Roll Promises, Chaos Unleashed and Revelation. She is here to promote her newest release Rock n Roll Promises, book 1 in the Rock n Roll Paraphantasy Series.  

We have picked random questions and thrown them at her so she has to answer them as quickly as she can.  Grab your coffee, get comfy and here we go.

1.       Which of your books is your favorite?
It would have to be this one, Rock n Roll Promises.  I think because it has been the most fun to write. I really got to let my rocker smart ass side loose.

2.       Which of your characters is your favorite?
Oliver Zane “Ozzie”.  He is the ultimate hard rockin’ bad boy with a quick wit and smart mouth!

3.       What childish things do you still do as adult?
Coloring! As in crayons, markers and color books. I love to sit in the floor with my nieces, various ages, and my daughters, who are 19 & 17, and just color.  We have a great time.

4.       You are planning the most awesome dinner party of your life. Which 3 celebrities/historical figures (past or present) would you add to your guest list to keep the dinner talk interesting?
Well before I answer this question, hold on to your hats because this is going to sound very weird.  Here goes, my three guests: The most AWESOME Rock Band ever, AC DC. The king of Country, George Strait and the creator of one of the best cars ever designed, Shelby GT 500, Carroll Shelby.

5.       Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?
Terry Goodkind and his Sword of Truth series, which is awesome!

6.       What’s the best thing about being an author?
I would like to say something profound like fulfillment or the sense of accomplishment and these are mind-blowing feelings but in the everyday: I get to work every day in my Jammies, if I choose, and NO ONE cares! 

7.       What’s your favorite line from any movie?
“Go on Smart Ass and do it” This is from my all-time favorite movie, A Christmas story, which I watch oh so many times, from October to January.

8.       What's your favorite thing to do in the summer? Fall? Winter? Spring?
Oh, there are so many things; it’s hard to say just one per season. Winter is pretty easy, decorating for Christmas! Lights, tree, gifts, can it really get better? Spring would probably be…okay decorating. Playing in flowers and transforming my house from Snow to flowers.  Fall would have to be going to the pumpkin patch and finding the perfect little pumpkin. Summer, oh summer, I love laying out and soaking up Vitamin D!

9.       Describe your ideal romantic date.
I have actually had one of my ideal dates. My hubby and children conspired to pull it off.  It was actually just a few years ago.  So here’s how it went down. Hubby and I went out to my favorite Steak place for dinner. Afterward we went for a walk and later returned to home where…wait for it…When I opened the door were cutouts of different shaped colorful hearts scattered along floor trailing to the bedroom. Inside our room, our initials, also in different shaped colored hearts formed the words “I love u J&A” taped on the wall, streamers falling from the ceiling and two wine glasses and our favorite bottles of drink upon the fireplace.  Yes, it was fabulous.  No ladies, I have not married “Prince Charming” per say, but he is my charming prince, sometimes. This city girl loves her Country Boy! This kind of date does not happen all the time; this was for our 18th wedding anniversary.

10.   What's your favorite love story movie?

The notebook! I am not one for “chick-flicks” but I loved the notebook. It is one of the few movies I have ever cried during, but who didn’t?  That is a real love story!

Thanks to AmBear Shellea for the interview!  Continue reading for more information on Rock & Roll Promises and the Giveaways!

Goodreads Synopsis:



 Fulfilling a promise leads to searching her soul, her past, and the one night that changed her life forever...

 Young, vibrant and with her whole life in front of her, Anna, who had recently traveled to Australia, is looking forward to ringing in the new year at her favorite bar. Dressed to the hilt, ready for a great night, she meets Sebastian-Tall, mysterious and handsome. Her one stand turns into a one life exchange! The beginning of a new existence.

 Anna finds her new life holds more than even she knows. It promises rock n roll, sex, love and secrets and a new set of rules. She embraces her new found self and learns to adapt. Anna, and her bestie, Paige, move back home to the states and live as normally as they can. As they say, best laid plans and all-Life has a different plan and yet another set of rules- Rules that even she breaks. The creation of a whole new animal.




This is nice. 

 A soft glow illuminated the room due to the sporadically lit candles. The flame light bounced off the curtains framing the bed. She noticed the walls were a deep maroon color until halfway down then they were a beige color beneath white trim. The cream carpet was plush and added softness to the area. The bedroom was small but perfect for the task. Her silk teddy moved easily upon her frame as she walked to the bed.

 Big and comfy!

 The black sheets felt like silk against her body as she crawled on her hands and knees to the big plush pillows at the end of the bed. Her long, brown curls played around her shoulders when she moved. They were as soft as the sheets beneath her. Her nerves pricked at her skin and her pulse raced when she heard his footsteps down the hall.

 Now or never. Here he comes and a promise is a promise. Her heart raced in anticipation. The big fluffy clouds of white cotton shook slightly in her nervous grasp as she snatched them up and stacked them against the headboard. She rolled onto her back and posed playfully upon the pillows. She put one knee up with a heel on the bed and laid the other to the side, slightly bent. It left just enough of a gap between her legs to show a small peek at what she promised. 

She wore exactly what he had asked for: the dark red and black teddy. Her cleavage sat mounded high upon her chest, barely covered with the satiny fabric. Under her bust line, the fabric cinched together in a laced pattern and ran all the way down her stomach, making a V-shape between her thighs. Black stockings covered her legs up to mid-thigh and fastened to a black garter belt.

 I hope he likes my heels. I think they set the outfit off nicely. They look like something a porn star would wear. Oh, how I love six inch spikes! 

With her left hand above her head and the right one on her inner thigh, she waited for the door to open. I hope this is over quickly. I know I can handle this, but I would definitely be happier to endure less of him.

 The creaking sounds of the door opening filled the room. Thank God, he is ready. Finally!

 The door swung wide and there he stood, tall, buff and naked.

 Oh, la la! This might not be so bad after all. His clothes hid the sexy beneath them. He was but a few heartbeats away. With her eyes fully focused, she traced his frame. Shadows cast by candlelight played upon his tanned skin. His broad shoulders moved his muscled arms slightly as he walked closer. Streams of water ran from his dark black hair down his sculpted chest and slid the length of his frame, down his stomach, flexing his tight abs as he moved. Strong hips and toned legs carried him to the end of the bed. His clean, shaved face was smooth and it softened his hard features. 

 Chocolate mousse eyes...gorgeous. Bad boy all the way. His body is so hot, I bet I could fry eggs on those abs. “I have waited a long time for this, Anna.”

Author Info:

Although I have always enjoyed writing, the dream to become a writer came when I read A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, in the sixth grade. My early works, not published, were in the form of children’s stories I would read to my two daughters. I divide my days between the real world and the ones I’ve created. My life and my characters keep me very busy in my Mid-Western scene, where I live with my husband, and my children (both human and furry).
