Megan Miller is a good girl. She doesnt do the groupie thingnot even at a rock festival in England-- and she certainly isnt about to fall for a rock-star look-alike. So why does her temporary neighbor, who looks and acts like her schoolgirl rock idol crush, bring all kinds of illicit fantasies to mind?

Davy Morgan works overtime to keep his music world and his private life separate. His very existence depends on it. But when a beautiful woman tempts him in every way imaginable, he comes too close to revealing his dark secret. And that would be disastrous.

Because everything is not as it seems in Davys world. When the truth comes out, can their newfound love cross the decades, or will it be lost in time?

CHAPTER 1

Megan Miller snapped her laptop shut as the captain announced they were only half an hour out of Heathrow Airport in London. The second leg of the long-haul flight from Dubai had passed quickly, and she'd organized all of her notes and files ready to begin her research at Glastonbury. A shiver of anticipation rippled through her as she realized that in less than an hour her feet would be on the ground in England, and her lifetime dream was about to be achieved — visiting England, going to a music festival, and just experiencing the British music scene firsthand.

The screen on the back of the seat beside her caught her attention and she leaned forward with interest as the credits for a seventies music show ran down. She flicked her own TV on, put the earphones in her ears and scrolled through the music programs, found and selected the seventies show, and grinned when Davy Morgan strutted onto the stage.

How good was that? Megan had spent the past hour reading about him and now she could listen to his music ... and watch him. It didn't get much better than that. The librarian at the university had e-mailed the final articles scanned from the old microfiche copies of It's here and now, the music magazine from the seventies that Megan was using for part of her research. The article was one she hadn't read before and the photograph had caught her attention. It had been the same photograph as the poster she'd had up on her wall when she was a teenager. The lurid headline hinted at a scandal but she ignored it. Her research had shown that scandals for rock stars in the seventies were manufactured on a daily basis to boost record sales.

Hasn't changed much. With today's technology at everyone's fingertips, a rock star couldn't sneeze without it being tweeted somewhere in the world. She'd been fascinated by the seventies music her parents loved, and she'd preferred it over the nineties bands her friends had followed. Her fascination with the era had continued through university, and now formed the basis of her doctorate. Her research on Davy Morgan had come to a dead end soon after 1971. It seemed besides a few tours in late 1971 and early '72, he'd become a bit of a recluse and there was very little to be found on him, apart from his appearance at the Glastonbury festivals for a few years after that, and the popularity of his albums. It was as though he'd disappeared ... the only mention of him was a rumor that he'd retired to an island somewhere to write his music.

Megan reached over and turned the volume up and closed her eyes as Davy sang "For Megan." She'd always loved that song and was sure it had deepened her love of Davy Morgan's music.

Come back to me, Megan.

Together we will conquer time.

It had been the beginning of a journey that was now culminating in the final research for her doctorate on the sociology of seventies music and festivals. She couldn't help the grin that she knew was spreading across her face. She was going to go to her first Glastonbury festival.

Life was good.

After they'd landed and Megan had collected her luggage, made her way through customs, and had her passport stamped, she found a quiet corner and pulled out her cell phone. It took a couple of minutes to find a provider but eventually she had service ... and fifteen messages.

What the hell? They were all from her sister, Kathy, and her stomach clenched as she thought the worst. Rather than pick up the messages, she dialed her sister's number and it picked up on the first ring.

"Oh. Megan, thank God." Her sister's voice broke when she answered the call.

"What's wrong? What's happened? Are the kids okay?" Kathy and her husband, Tony, had two small children whom Megan adored.

"Yes, everyone's fine. But there's something you need to know. It's just awful."

"What's wrong?" Megan put her bag on the floor and slid down the wall as she waited for Kathy to answer.

"The university was trying to reach you and they called Tony." Her brother-in-law was a law lecturer at North Shore University, where she worked as a sociology lecturer and tutor while she finished her doctorate.

"Yeah, what's so urgent?"

"I'll find Tony and he can tell you. He's already dealing with it." The worry in Kathy's voice was beginning to unsettle Megan. "We'll call you back when I find him. He's outside somewhere."

While she waited for them to call back, Megan racked her brain trying to figure out what was wrong. She'd finished all her student marking and had entered her marks, despite having a problem with her log-in and password to the grade center. It had taken a while to get her password reset and she'd actually worked in her office to finish up the grades yesterday before she'd headed to the airport. It had turned out well because she'd caught up with her friend Beth, whose family cottage Megan was staying in at Glastonbury.

"You can catch the train from Paddington Station to Castle Cary. There'll be buses to the festival but if you grab a taxi at the station, you'll be able to go straight to Violet Cottage," Beth had instructed. As soon as she heard from Tony, she'd head off to find Paddington Station and make her way down to Glastonbury.

Finally the Queen tune that heralded an incoming call rang out, and she pressed the pickup button.

"Tony?"

"Megs, I'll cut straight to it." Tony's voice was grim. "The vice-chancellor contacted me when they realized you'd already left for England. You're going to have to come home."

"What the hell are you talking about?"

"They've suspended you from your job while an investigation is under way."

"An investigation?" The words came out as a squawk and a couple of heads turned in her direction. "What sort of investigation?"

"They've sent you a letter with some serious allegations about your behavior in the sociology department. It involves falsifying marks and taking money from students to change their grades."

"That's absolute bullshit." Megan's head was spinning and she put her hand up to her throat.

"And that's not all. They say you've plagiarized material for your doctorate."

"Greg Cannon." Megan pushed herself to her feet and walked over to the large window overlooking the runway. "It was Greg Cannon, that slime bucket. Wasn't it?" She leaned forward and her forehead touched the glass as she listened to Tony.

"There's a meeting next week. If you want to fight it you're going to have to come home."

"What if I don't come home? For God's sake, Tony. I've only been here five minutes."

"If you don't fight it, it will be seen as an admission of guilt." Tony sighed. "You've got no choice. If you don't come home and fight it, you'll have no job to come home to."

"I knew he was up to something. That bloody man weaseled his way into my bed, and he was way too interested in everything I was doing at work." Megan gritted her teeth as her suspicions fell into place. "He wanted that promotion and I was a certainty over him."

"So you think Greg's responsible?"

"Isn't it strange that my log-in and password wouldn't work all of a sudden? They've been fine for three years. He obviously got hold of them and logged in as me and changed marks or something."

"Maybe I could ask for an audit by the IT department?" Tony's voice held the first shred of hope since he'd called.

"He's smart enough to have covered his tracks, but I suppose it's worth a try if you think they'll do one."

"I'll see what I can do. God knows, it's the last thing you need after the last six months," Tony said.

"Okay, see what you can do and I'll call you in the morning after I get down to Beth's family's place. We'll figure out if I have to come home right now."

Could she trust Tony to handle it? Could she stay in the United Kingdom for a month and go home to the whole thing being fixed? The research for her doctorate on the sociological aspects of the Glastonbury music event through thirty years of festivals was the final step toward her thesis and she couldn't afford to give up this opportunity now that she was here. But the flip side was, if she stayed and was found guilty, the work would be for nothing. If she lost her job at the university, she'd never get another academic job anywhere else.

"Are you still there, Megan?"

"Sorry, I was thinking."

"So you'll trust me to handle it for a couple of days?"

"Absolutely. I trust you. All the grading paperwork is in folders in my study at home. Hopefully, it will discredit all the lies he's told about my marking. The stuff about my thesis I'll deal with personally, when I come home. Tell Kathy she was right. She tried to warn me about that jerk." Megan looked around the terminal. It was surreal having this conversation in an airplane terminal in England. All of her excitement about being here had disappeared in an instant. "Any questions you've got, e-mail me and I'll sort them out. I'll go to the media if I have to. And I'll deal with Greg Cannon when I get back. I am so off men ... for life." Then she realized how Tony was going out on a limb for her. "Sorry. Brothers-in-law excepted."

Having a lawyer in the family had been handy when their parents had died in the car accident last year, and she and Kathy had had to sort out the mess of their estate. Tony worked part-time in his family law firm, but his first love was academia and he spent a lot of his time at the university lecturing as an associate professor.

"So e-mail me with anything else you think of when you get there," Tony said.

"Shit." Megan thought of the conversation she'd had with Beth yesterday when her friend had given her the directions from London. "There's no Internet in Violet Cottage. In fact, Beth's Aunt Alice apparently never had a phone connected. I'll have to go into the village to the public phone."

"Use your cell phone." Tony was on the ball. "And if that doesn't work in the English countryside, you should be able to find an Internet café or something."

"Okay, I'll be in touch tomorrow, somehow." A measure of calm had returned as Megan realized she could stay. For a while at least. "And Tony? Thanks. I really appreciate it."

She disconnected, tucked her phone into her bag, and picked up her suitcase.

This whole mess could mean the end of her career and her passion. The timing sucked, but she would go back and sort it all out when the month was over. She had to fight it, but now, she would try to focus on Glastonbury as best she could, get her research data, enjoy the festival, and try to block out the mess until she came home. It was in Tony's capable hands.

CHAPTER 2

"Shit."

David Morgan hitched his guitar up on his shoulder and cursed for the second time that night. The band practice session had gone late because the pyramid stage had been only half set up when they'd gotten to Worthy Farm in Pilton at midday. The organizers had tried to find the best site by using a witching rod so they could set the stage above the magical ley line that was supposed to run through here from Stonehenge. It was said to be lucky.

David strode across the field trying to shake off the anger that consumed him. Everything had gone wrong today. Bear, their drummer, had been late because of the crowds gawking at the musicians along the road into the farm. Someone had let slip that Bowie and the Stones were rehearsing, and by the time he and the band had set up and rehearsed, it had been pitch dark despite almost being midsummer.

If they'd asked him where to put the stage, he could have shown them straight up. But he was not in the mood to talk to anyone. Holly Love, their publicist, had handed him the latest issue of the Taunton Times and he'd thrown it onto the stage floor in disgust when he'd read the bullshit the journalist had written up about Emma's death. Last year, when he'd agreed to foster the bad-boy image to promote sales, he'd naively thought all he'd have to do was lounge about in leathers and have a few scantily clad girls hanging off his arm.

Not be associated with a drug overdose death of someone I grew up with ... and had once thought I loved.

It had taken David three attempts to get back home across the fields and by the time he got there he was royally pissed off. He'd spent an hour wandering around in the long, damp grass before he'd finally found the time gate so he could make his way across to the back garden of Rose Cottage. Someone had been there, because when he came around the side, the small front gate leading to the narrow, hedgerowed road was open.

No matter how much he protected his privacy and tried to hide, some groupie always managed to find him.

No matter where ,or when he was.

After the first festival, and Emma's death, he'd moved down to Glastonbury and settled into a vacant cottage outside the village to take refuge from the publicity and the journalists who constantly chased him. Music had flowed, and he had written new songs, day and night. Alice McLaren lived next door and she'd shown him the way to his future. At first, he'd been skeptical, but the day she'd taken him to the standing stones, a new world had opened up for him — an opportunity to escape the misery of his life and the relentless pursuit of the press — and he had embraced it.

When Alice had first told him about the ley line behind the cottages, he'd thought it was just new age hippie ramblings, but she'd taken him over to the three large markers in the field. She'd placed his hands on the bluish-gray stone. He'd jumped back as they'd hummed and moved beneath his fingers. The next day he'd gone exploring alone, and had slipped through to the future for the first time. When he'd come back, Alice had explained it. Her family had been traveling through the time gate for centuries. Listening to her explanation of ley lines and time slips had saved his sanity. For a few hours, he had thought Emma's death had pushed him over the edge and he'd had some sort of breakdown.

Carefully, he'd put the past behind him and explored his future. It was as though he'd come home, taking him away from all the rabid fans and groupies who constantly followed his band, or any band. When he had discovered the success of the band, and the wealth he'd accrued since the seventies, it had almost done his head in. The day he went up to London and recognized the elderly banker — who was still the same man who'd set up his accounts forty years ago — everything had fallen into place for him. Clive was the only other person, apart from Alice and the guys in the band, who knew his secret ... but now Alice was gone.

He'd made his decision to stay in the twenty-first century and only went back through the time gates for the festivals, some touring, and when the band was recording in the studio. But living near the time gate had unsettled him, so he had bought an island in the Caymans. Davy Morgan became a recluse and the press soon lost interest in him.

He cursed again, as his toe stubbed something large on the front porch. He took a step forward and tripped over a small bag. As he fell, he twisted to protect his guitar and landed on something soft, which expelled a soft oomph.

"What the fuck?" He grunted as his eyes adjusted to the faint light shining from the single lamp inside. He'd left it on after fumbling with the lock in the dark last night. It had taken half an hour to get the old key in the door. Living in an old country cottage was great for his privacy — most of the time — but it had its disadvantages. A night of singing at full volume had strained his vocal cords and all he wanted was a long, mellow whiskey to soothe his dry throat.

Dropping his gaze, he groaned as a pair of red-clad legs moved beneath him and he realized he was lying across a woman. A very well-endowed woman. Wide eyes looked back at him above a white T-shirt stretched tight across her breasts.

"Well, you might as well come in. A good fuck might just improve my night."

A soft gasp followed him as he put both hands on either side of her and pushed himself to his feet before retrieving his guitar from the ground.

Timeless affair with 70's hot rocker! Megan leaves Australia for the Glastonbury festivals and has only just arrived to complete the research on her doctoral thesis when disaster strikes.  She is asked to come home and defend herself against charges that have caused her to be suspended from her position at the University. Meanwhile she runs into a super hot family member of her childhood crush, 70's rocker Davy Morgan.  He is nasty to her to make sure she keeps her distance because his secret is that he really is Davy Morgan.   Megan is torn between her love for the music plus her big chance to be at this festival and going home to defend herself.  Then there is the  interplay between Megan and Davy tearing at them both. The story of a love that crosses the boundaries of time; I loved it!  I did not want it to end and wanted more... the only thing wrong with this book is that I want more... maybe we'll see more of Davy and Megan? I received an arc of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Hot Rock was a sexy, quick, fun read all about Rock and Roll and escape. (It's all you could want in a summer read!) I had no idea that time travel was part of this book until I had started reading it, and while it felt slightly off in the beginning, I really enjoyed that aspect of the story! It's definitely one of the most unique things I've seen in the rockstar-romance genre. After all, what girl wouldn't want to meet the rock idol of her younger years? The characters are well developed and have great chemistry. I would  love to see more from this couple or other characters from Hot Rock!

The story is about Megan who is fighting for her job, and Davy a rock star who travels between 1971 and 2014.  It was a boy meets girl,  then falls in love with girl.  The only thing that was different about this story is the time traveling.  They do have their have their happily ever after.

I was given a copy of this book for a honest review. Do you like hot, sexy rockers? Do you like stories with some time travel in it? Do you remember the 70s hippie scene? Then this is the book for you. I’ve always been intrigued with the music of the 70s and I feel the author captured the whole concert scene from that era. Megan and Davy/David are well written characters that jumped from the pages and became real to me. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the whole rocker and time travel themed books.

Hot Rock was definitely a pleasant surprise for me. I found the extraordinary element in this story to be an intriguing twist.  I won't tell you what that twist is, since it's Davy Morgan's secret.  Davy Morgan is a 70's rock star.  When Megan arrives in England to do research at the Glastonbury music festival, Davy is sort of annoyed by her presence, but as they get to know each other, he finds out they have very similar tastes in music. The chemistry sizzling between them is just off the charts! “Those beautiful eyes. The hunger in them echoes how I feel. How the hell am I going to keep my hands off her?” This is my first read from Annie Seaton. I'm now a fan. If you appreciate romances that feature an awesome and laid back rock music setting, then Hot Rock could be right up your alley!

Time travel met 70's rock music galore!! Rock not like any other rock books I'd read. I admit mix time travel with rocker theme work for Hot Rock. Because it make me know more about rock music in 70's. I don't know anything about rock music, to be honest. What I know just Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Evanescence, Avenged Sevenfold,etc. Yeah, all that new era rock music. Because of Guitar Hero games, I know just a little of 70's rock music. Like "I Love Rock and Roll", and my favorite "More than a Feeling" by Boston. Ms Seaton bring us to Glastonbury Festival, both on 2014 and 1971 , with the journey of Megan Miller and Davy Morgan to find love and redemption for each other. Even I'm a little bit struggle with the fact that Davy (or David) can travel through the time so easily and not affect the past and the future. But their story feel magical for me and I like the ending, with how Ms Seaton make David and Megan's relationship to work. Simply put, I'm satisfied. If you want a rock story that different than you already read now, with a touch of time travel and 70's rock music, you will add Hot Rock on your TBR list

Once you start this book you will not want to put it down. Every page leaves you wanting to know what happens next….including steamy romance and solving a mystery
cutiephinphin More than 1 year ago
An sweet and unique love story that transcends time… I wouldn't have believed my eyes if I should see my favorite rock idol standing right in front of me and that was how Megan felt, despite Davy claiming himself as David, the nephew of his uncle Davy. Davy was a man living in guilt because of Emma while Megan was trying to find herself especially after a bad relationship. And because of Megan's love of music especially Davy's, they felt a connection that went deep into their souls and even time was no boundary. I loved how the story brought Megan to the past in 1971 and she got to see a glimpse of Davy's world. I also liked that she was in 'history' as being Davy's mystery woman. I especially loved the 'lyrics' in the For Megan's song. It was just so touching my heart melted and I love how the story ended. It would have been what I would do in a heartbeat.

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review*** Most of us will admit to having had a crush on that one musician who sang that one song that just *places hand over heart* gets us right there. We might admit to having that crush enthusiastically or begrudgingly. But for those who've been there, who remember having that kind of a crush, this book is for you. This is a beautiful tale of a love that defies the laws of time, a love that's strong enough to reach through decades and bring together two people who are meant to be together. What touched me the most was David's genuine concern for those he knew in 1971. In a time of love, drugs, and rock 'n roll, he could've immersed himself in his fame and turned a blind eye to those who partied hard with him. But he didn't. And it showed, big time. He'd suffered loss once; it was obvious he would do everything in his power to prevent going through that kind of loss again. He might have had a deep love and concern for his friends, but it was ten times more for Megan. Their relationship was meant to be and when he lost her, he did what he did best to get her back: he wrote a song for her that spanned years and, indeed, brought them together. Ms. Seaton pens a time travel romance unlike any other I've read. I loved the characters, the differences in time periods, and how time really had no hold over their love. David and Megan truly were meant to love each other...whenever they are.

Megan is going on the trip she has always wanted. She is researching her thesis at a rock festival. The town she is at is a little strange and her neighbor may look just like her rock idol from the 70's but he proves right away he is a jerk. Davy tries his best to keep Megan away from him. He has a secret and instead of someone who just looks like Megan's idol he actual is him. He can travel through time and goes back in forth in time to play his music in the 70's. When Megan follows Davy the truth comes out and they find even through time they still love each other. They just have to see if they can find each other when time tears them apart. I like this story as it combines time travel and romance. Throw in 70's music and I am hooked. Megan is having a hard time at work but she still wants to have a great time. She finds her self at an odd place and tries her best to enjoy her trip. When she goes back in time at first she isn't away she has till she really opens her eyes and finds she is actually where one of her loves started. She doesn't like Day at first but is still drawn to him. Davy may seem like a jerk but he isn't he just has a secret to protect. He is afraid what will happen to Megan and he has an image he hates to live up to. The author does a great  job describing the scene in the different times. You feel like you are there yourself. There is the romance between Davy and Megan and the wonder you have if things will work out for them. If you want a time traveling romance be sure to pick this one up.

This book is a great read. Megan and David's story is unique in it own way. What girl wouldn't want her crush to be hers forever and always.

This was a cute romance that draws on the premise that we all would like to hook up with the rock star we worshipped as a teenager. Megan is doing her doctorate on the rock phenomena of the seventies and as part of her research travels to Glastonbury to attend the festival that launched Davie Morgan in 1971 before she was even born. What she wasn't expecting was to meet his look alike nephew (yes...right) in the cottage right next door. Even less did she expect to attend the 1971 festival and witness not only Davie's big discovery but also another little known performer, David Bowie. The concept of ley lines around the ancient stone monuments of Britain isn't a new concept, but Annie Seaton uses them well to allow for the time slip element of her story. The romance between David Morgan and Megan is sizzling hot. The premise/s that keeps them apart is probably the weakest part of the story. I found Megan a little irritating around the time she figured out what was happening and with her mistrust of David. I had to remind myself she was an intelligent educated woman. But hey...time travel may well turn your brains to mush. Overall, I really enjoyed the story. David was totally adorable and I would fangirl him any time. I found it harder to warm up to Megan but she worked for David. The time slip frame worked really well and didn't spark my suspension of disbelief meter. Over all a good read, especially if you are nostalgic for the 70's.

Ever wonder what you'd do if you met your teenage music idol?  On a trip to complete her PHD, Megan, ends up living next door for a dead ringer of 'The Davy Morgan'. First impression is that although he's the spitting image of her teenage idol, he's a real jerk. David "Davy" Morgan is just trying to make a living and relax. It just happens that those two things aren't happening in the same time. Jumping back and forth between 1971 and modern England can result in some interesting complications. After accidentally following Davy through the ley lines back to 1971 Megan has trouble figuring out what is going on. A night of passion and a miscommunication leads to upset.  Megan returns home to straighten some issues out. Davy can only think of one way to let Megan know his feelings. Once her legal troubles are over, Megan is listening to an old Davy Morgan album when one of the songs suddenly has a whole new meaning. Love can conqur all even time. * I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Having grown up in the seventies could not pass this book up when I read the blurb-sexy rock star from the seventies,oh the hype rock groups and the like had back then with glorious concerts in their wake, and knew this author could write about this era wonderfully with no problems being able to pull off one to hold my interest. This is one writer that can take words and turn it into a captivating journey down any road with characters she brings to life with the magic she breathes into them. Megan is on her way to finish her work and thesis that takes her to England to experience first hand music there. Having all her life followed the music and the life and times of Davy Morgan who became a recluse following tours and appearance at the Glastonbury festivals and albums popularity. She loves one song in particular "For Megan" that had actually began her journey long ago. But urgent news from home of a scandal involving a jerk she used to see could threaten her time plus her life but not yet does she let it. There is a cottage she is to stay at but somehow ends up at wrong one. Who should be at this cottage but Davy but he thinks she is there for another reason and she thinks he is at her cottage. Not thinking this could be the one and same Davy she thinks he is a jerk and the fun begins. The humor is quite refreshing as you read this that does go on between these two. The magic is indeed in this one because it is the same Davy with the reasons it is in the telling of this wonderful romance filled with magic in the lines. Read how they get to begrudgingly get to know each other with a event that breaks time. When they come together as one tingles went down the arms for sure while reading it. She learns his secret and the relationship builds for how long only time will tell. But troubles from home come roaring their ugly head and must be dealt with not to be put off any longer . When Davy has not a clue kinda on how to find her you become breathless wondering oh no what now. The significant of the song also revealed which provided more tingles. A love story such as this between this sexy rock star and Megan that defies time and lasts beyond is woven so you as the reader once read will see why I say magic in the writing because how it can touch you through the telling leaving tingles and a warm heart. Would not of missed this for nothing plus would of missed out on all the pleasure this novel gave to me the reader. received a arc for a honest review.

Awesome Book!!! This was a great book; I read it in one sitting because it was so good that I didn't want to put it down. Megan is doing research on music for her thesis and flies to London to attend Glastonbury which is famous music festival. Megan meets the man that is living next door to the house she is staying in and he looks identical to Davy Morgan the lead singer to a famous 70’s rock band. Megan has been in love with Davy Morgan since she can remember, and his music is what influenced her choice in studying music. When Megan meets David she can’t get over the fact how much he looks like the famous rocker, but she knows that can’t be possible since Davy should be a lot older. David tells her that he is Davy’s nephew, or is he. This book has it all, it is well written, and held my attention from the first page. It has time travel, romance, rock n roll, and a wonderful location. I can’t wait to read more books by this author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

A contemporary romance with time travel element. A fast paced story that takes you back into the 70's with rock star Davy and Meghan,who is working on her doctoral thesis. This is a fun, quick and entertaining read. I grew up in the 70's so I really enjoyed the time travel element. I received this book from the author for a honest review.

Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews When I heard about Hot Rock, I wondered how Annie was going to pull off a time travel story. That in and of itself had me wanting to read the book. Trying to put all the pieces together to actually understand what was happening, had me turning the pages. In 1971, David “Davy” Morgan launched his rock star career. For him, the music was important, not the fame. The fortune, he can live with. Davy lives in both the twentieth century (1971) and twenty-first century (2014). He does what he loves and was meant to do in one and lives the quiet peaceful life he craves in the other. Megan has always felt a connection to 70's music and especially the music of The Davy Morgan Band. As a teenager, when all of her friends were listening to the latest bands of the 90's, she immersed herself in 70's music. Now, she has a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to England and attend the Glastonbury Festival as research for her doctorate on the sociology of seventies music and festivals. When Megan and David first meet, there is an immediate attraction. The attraction is so strong and powerful, they don’t have the ability to ignore it. Megan's trip turns out to be confusing and magical all at the same time. It truly shows that love is timeless. Source: Publisher

Megan is obsessed with seventies rock star Davy Morgan, so when she goes to England for her research on the music festival that launched his career, she's shocked to meet his nephew David, who is a dead ringer for the rocker. Davy Morgan has a secret, he travels through time, living in modern England, but performing in the seventies. After too much of the seventies rock lifestyle, he just wants to play his music and be left alone. But he can't get Megan out of his head. Hot Rock is a fun, rocking novella from Entangled Covet. Megan is a feisty and interesting heroine. And, although Davy gets off to a rocky start, treating Megan chauvinistically, he grew on me, and on Megan. While I thought the characters could have used more depth, and I sometimes questioned the believability of their actions, I was thoroughly entertained. HOT Rock is a flirty ride through time, with lots of great music references to boot. A copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way for said review.

Megan Miller, is researching music for her thesis, and she is going to attend the famous Glastonbury Festival. To her surprise, the man living in the house next door to the one she is staying in, looks exactly like Davy Morgan, a 70's rock star. Megan has loved him forever, and he is the reason she decided to study music. David Morgan tells her that Davy is his uncle, because he has a secret that he cannot share with her. When Megan watches David go across a field, she decides to follow him, and ends up at the festival, but not the one she was expecting! This was a great story of love, romance, suspense, and rock 'n' roll. Will time keep David and Morgan apart or bring them together? I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to anybody that loves old time rock 'n' roll with a twist!! I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

As a fan of of Annie Seaton's Romance Abroad Bundle, I wasn't sure what to expect of Hot Rock, especially since time travel and fantasy aren't my thing.  But leave it to Annie to blow my socks off.  Without giving away to much information because I want everyone to experience this sensual masterpiece for themselves, the sexual tension and chemistry, hint of mystery, animosity caused by sexual tension and ultimate conclusion left me on the edge of my seat!  For only .99, this will easily be your best investment of the year and if this is the first Annie Seaton book you read, you'll want to invest more.   Hot Rock has it all:  nostalgia for our youth, rockin sexual tension and frustration, a couple who seems not meant to be but can't stop being and 70's music all jam packed into one sexy book!  Way to go Ms. Seaton.  I hope there is more to come.

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? Review: I loved this time traveling, rock 'n' roll, romance! What a great story and now I am going to date myself for saying this....but it reminds me of the movie "Somewhere in Time".  I know they are really nothing alike, but they both give that good mushy feeling, that you want to curl up and enjoy the romance and the story. I have read quite a few books by Ms. Seaton and I have to say, she has a great imagination because the stories are all so different.  I am really drawn to her voice and writing style and this book goes right along with the other books of hers that I have enjoyed. This is a story about Megan who travels to England to do research for her thesis about the sociology of rock festivals.  When she gets there she runs into David who is a dead ringer for her childhood crush, Davey Morgan.  The spark they have together is instantaneous and no matter how much they fight the attraction you know they are meant to be together.  David/Davey is trying to hide from Megan who he really is but Megan is a smart cookie and has her suspicions.  After Megan accidentally follows David through the gateway, there is no denying that he is really Davey Morgan, rock star.  After that there is really no keeping them apart, even though there are obstacles, misunderstandings and time that try to keep them apart.  The characters are great, they are believable, smart, sexy and make the story all the more enjoyable. If you love time travel, romance or rock 'n' roll this is the story for you! 4 Stars

First, let me say that I was a little hesitant about this book due to the time travel theme. I'm not a big fan of time travel stories as they can get rather confusing to follow. Annie Seaton did a great job. It was fun going back and re-visiting the 70's again. I liked Megan's character although I would have liked to have heard more about the resolution of her "problem" back home. Davy starts off extremely unlikeable, but redeems himself in the end. Overall, this was a well written, well edited (one of my pet peeves) and well thought out book. I highly recommend it. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
