Overview

In Shelley Ann Clark’s seductive debut novel, two damaged souls discover that when they’re together, their bodies hit all the right notes.
 
Rock diva Emme Hayes already broke up one band after sleeping with the lead singer, and she swears she won’t let sex screw things up again. The problem is, her new bass player—a lean, muscular, tattooed mystery man who makes her want to demand his absolute attention—has her so worked up she can hardly carry a tune. Emme promises he’s off-limits. She just doesn’t know how she’ll be able to confine the heat to her love songs.
 
The moment Tom McKinney lays eyes on Emme strutting around the stage of his blues bar—all curves, eye liner, and teased blond hair—he knows she’s one of a kind. So when she offers him a two-month paid gig to tour with her band, Tom can’t say no, despite family troubles and the bar’s precarious finances. Onstage and off, the music they make thrums in his soul, but Tom has too much going on to get involved—even if he burns to let Emme play his body like a fine-tuned instrument.

Praise for Have Mercy
 
“The words ‘Yes, ma’am’ have never been as electric as they are in Have Mercy, deployed by Clark’s sharp and clever pen.”RT Book Reviews

“A glittering debut . . . Shelley Ann Clark’s voice has a beat and rhythm as memorable as the musical world her characters inhabit. Intense, joyful, and thoroughly satisfying. I can’t wait for more from this promising new author.”USA Today bestselling author Megan Mulry
 
“Sultry as a spotlit ballad, Have Mercy delivers with heat, emotion, and atmosphere. An impressive debut!”—USA Today bestselling author Ruthie Knox
 
“A sultry steel magnolia who brings a strong man to his knees, one night at a time . . . Have Mercy, indeed.”—Mary Ann Rivers, author of The Burnside Series

“The emotional aspects are so good; it’s the kind of writing that can make [anything] seem hot, just because the characters are enjoying themselves so much.”—Dear Author
 
“An extraordinary debut . . . I am expecting great things to come from [Clark] in the future!”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
 
“I would highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a light erotic novel with interesting characters.”—She Read

“[A] dynamic debut . . . Have Mercy is original but familiar, dark but not melodramatic, with sexy, steamy, smart and lovably flawed characters.”—Suburban Eclectic Review
 
“Honestly, if you like happily-ever-afters and hot sex, I don’t see how this book wouldn’t work for you. It’s just so damn cute.”—The Naughty Librarians (five stars)

    I've never read a book where the man was submissive but steamy non the less. Wish their was more to the story ended without letting us know what happened. Good read though.

    Fantastic!

    Emme and Tom stole my heart and made me fall in love! This is short read but complete. Emme and Tom both have baggage they must work through, but the love is constant. Forget that thisis Shelley Ann Clarke's first book...it was just a darn good read. Enjoy!
