What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?

Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.

Until Libby Myles walks into his life.

Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star that's the issue.

Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.

But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …

Our Author Interview

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book?

That’s a tricky question because when I’m writing, I constantly fight the urge to make the situation too easy for my character or to have them act like I would act. If I was Libby I would have stood up for myself a lot quicker than she does. 

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

Marilyn Manson. I was watching a music video show and saw Marilyn Manson on it. I wondered how and why he came up with that kind of persona. My mind immediately started off in a whole series of what if questions and Adrian was born. 

Why did you become a writer?

I have so many ideas and stories floating around in my head, I just have to get them down on paper. I love the whole process of creating characters, creating worlds and throwing obstacles in the way.

Do you have a favorite author or authors?

Nora Roberts has to be my favourite romance author. I also loved Enid Blyton as a child.

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series? 

I love reading series and would love to write a series as well. In actual fact I’m currently in the process of jotting down ideas for a sequel to What Goes on Tour.

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

My mind has gone completely blank of any of the heroes I adore! Oh, I do love Westley from The Princess Bride. He has sensitivity but also a great sense of humour and an adventurous spirit.

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?

Anything I can get my hands on! At the moment I have a box full of romance books which I collected at the Romance Writers’ of Australia conference last year and I’m making my way through them. I also read a lot of fantasy and paranormal.

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?

 I love hearing from my fans. It’s such a joy to know that someone liked reading my story. As a fan, I know how exciting it is when someone replies to your message as well. I think interaction with my fans may help sell more books, because they may be inclined to spread the word that they liked my book, but it’s certainly not the reason I do it. If readers do want to interact with me I’m on Twitter @clairebauthor and on Facebook 

Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when she’d run out of books to read her mother handed her ‘Hot Ice’ by Nora Roberts and Claire instantly fell in love with romance novels.

The love of reading soon turned to a love of writing and she struggled to keep within the 1500 word limit set by her teachers for her creative writing assignments. When she finally decided to become serious about her stories she joined Romance Writers of Australia, found her wonderful critique group and hasn’t looked back.

When Claire’s not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games.

Claire lives in Western Australia, just south of Perth with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs.
