Backstage, by Harmony Kent

Harmony is a good friend of mine, and one of the other authors at Story Empire. She is like me, in that neither of us can firmly stick to one genre. I think it makes us versatile. She’s here to tell us about her newest book, Backstage. Please make her feel welcome.

Hello, everyone. Harmony here. First up, huge thanks to Craig for hosting me today! He’s letting me visit today so that I can tell you about my latest book, Backstage. It is an erotic romance novel and deals with some of the sexual coercion scandals that have hit the acting industry in the last year.

Here’s a bit about the book for you:

SHE’S A HOPEFUL ACTRESS

Just when Emma thinks she’s found love. Just when her big chance comes. Just as she finds a little confidence at long last. Right then, it all goes horribly wrong.

HE’S HER MENTOR

John believed he had found ‘the one’. But the demons of his past wouldn’t allow him to break the leash, and when he gets the wrong end of the stick, it just confirms all his old prejudices and hurts.

THEN THERE’S THE BIG MAN WHO CAN MAKE OR BREAK A CAREER, AND THE DEMANDS HE MAKES

Derek Prentis is his name. Coercion is his game. He’s the man with the money. The big man who wants to keep Emma under his control and who will do anything to keep it that way.

THE PERFECT STORM OF ROMANCE, PASSION, AND GREED.

AWAY FROM THE LIMELIGHT, IT’S ALL HAPPENING BACKSTAGE.

And here is a ‘sneek peek’ …

In the darkened hospital room, John held her hand. When he saw her awake, he smiled. ‘How do you feel?’

Emma mumbled, ‘Head hurts.’

He squeezed her hand. ‘I’m not surprised. You had a concussion. They think you hit your head on the desk or something.’

‘What about him?’

John scowled. ‘Arrested. Charged. Released on bail.’

Distressed, her voice came out high and rushed, ‘They let him go?’

‘With all his money, he can afford a good solicitor. Anyway, he won’t be stupid enough to come near you again.’

‘You reckon?’

‘Yeah. It’ll make front-page news tomorrow—you mark my words. He’d be stupid to push it.’

Emma groaned.

John leaned over her. ‘What? What is it? Are you gonna throw up again?’

‘I know what he’ll say. I’m a slut. I led him on. You know the drill, John. All he has to do is slander me. Drag up my past. Like you say, with his money … a solicitor and a private investigator.’

John released her hand and stood.

Bewildered, Emma looked up at him.

‘I’m off to speak to the others,’ he said.

‘The other women?’

John nodded. ‘Yeah. If we can prove you weren’t his only victim …’
