Annie Seaton | Musical heroes and some are semi naked!

February 25, 2014

Annie SeatonHOT ROCKI had one of those wonderful moments a few months… one of those great creative hits when the inspiration for your next story blitzes in via your heart.

I was travelling to the Australian Romance Writers’ Association conference on the beautiful Gold Coast -now if you want to see naked heroes.,. just go to the beach there any time of the day- but I digress.

Before I collected my travelling buddy, I was listening to a favourite CD from the 70s—at full volume as I do when I am in the car.

I was bopping along listening to David Bowie sing one of my all time favourites at full volume (and concentrating on my driving of course) and a story line just appeared along with the music. By the time I collected my friend, the whole story was there and for an organic writer that is most unusual!

So why do we find our rock heroes sexy and why does their music get the creative juices flowing? How do they ooze sex appeal when some of them are not particularly handsome and don’t fit the usual sexy stereotype.

Some of the top bands today are in their sixties and they still draw a crowd. I was privileged to see Bruce Springsteen live last weekend and he still has it.

Is it the bad boy image?
Because they are mega rich?
Because they sing to us of love?
Is it the big hair?
Is it the tattoos?
Is it the glam factor?

Or does Nickleback’s recent song give us the answer.

‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses, drivin’ fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ’cause we just won’t eat

And can you guess… the hero of my latest release HOT ROCK, Davy Morgan is a rock star!

So now tell me why do you think they keep the appeal? One commenter will win a $10 gift card of their choice

For me it’s the passion they put into their craft… and the sexy looks as well!


Megan Miller is on a dream trip to research her doctoral thesis at a rock festival in England. When she arrives in town she’s stunned that her temporary neighbor is the spitting image of her 70’s rock idol, too bad he’s also a world-class jerk. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?

Seventies rock star Davy Morgan is a man with a secret: rockin’ in one time and living in another. He holds his privacy close to his heart, so when a beautiful girl who not only loves but truly understands his music moves in next door, he works overtime to keep her at a distance. Easier said than done.

Megan follows Davy to the rock festival, but it’s not what or when it seems. The lure of the music draws them closer, but can their newfound love span across the decades, or will it get lost in time?
