Shona Husk’s sexy new adult series about emerging rock band Selling the Sun concludes this month with a story about a woman who doesn’t want to connect, a man who’s forgotten how and the friendships that save our lives.

Dan Clarke knows he doesn’t have a problem, regardless of whatever his band members, his friends, his family and everyone else thinks. Drinking isn’t keeping him from doing what needs to be done, and it helps keep the anger and pain of his ex-girlfriend’s betrayal at bay. If only she would stay away as well, but, since the band’s return to Fremantle, she’s everywhere-on the phone, in his apartment, at his parents’ house-begging for another chance, reminding him of how good they had been together, holding him hostage to the past. It’s no wonder he needs a beer now and again.

Indigo Matthews is all about control: she trains hard, she works hard and she plays hard. Men are for fun, not forever, and she will never end up like her mother, trapped and miserable.  A huge Selling the Sun fan, Indigo knows when Dan wanders into her bar that he is a conquest that she has to make. But their connection is stronger than just sex, and regardless of her credo Indigo finds herself going back for more. Then truths about Dan’s life start to emerge, and Indigo finds herself in the one position she swore she’d never find herself.

A DUI, a drunk one night stand and an ultimatum from the band bring Dan’s life to a halt. Picking up the pieces is something he can’t do alone, and there’s only one person that he trusts to give a damn. The one person that he hurt the most. Indigo.

Q. Do you plot or just follow your muse?
A. A little of both. I like to know my characters and the main plot points before I start writing, but how I get to those main points is a mystery and there is often a bit of scene shuffling in the middle to get it all together. 

Q. Coffee, tea or wine?
A. Hot chocolate. I don’t like coffee or teas (except peppermint tea) and I don’t drink very often—I don’t mind a good chocolate martini, I have had bad ones ☹

Q. Where did the idea for this story come from?
A. Out of Chances is book 4 in the series. When I wrote book 1 (Out of Rhythm) I know all the characters really well, but I hadn’t planned on writing their stories (of course when Escape Publishing asked for them I said yes). Dan was in a difficult situation. And I could’ve forced the story to take another route, but I haven’t shied away from writing real issues in this series (it’s NA and people are finding their adult feet, mistakes are made and people have to move on, that’s life). Dan was a complex hero, although some people may not see him as heroic at all, he does grow and change and realize his mistake which shows a strength of character. 

Q. Where is Fremantle, WA and why there not somewhere more well-known?
A. Fremantle is near Perth Western Australia. I chose to set the books there instead of Sydney or Melbourne because I love Freo (as the locals call it) and it has a great live and local scene. Lots of great bands got their start there, so it seemed like a good starting point for my fictional band Selling the Sun.

Q. You seem to like heroes that are a little broken…why?
A. I don’t like my heroes or heroines to be too perfect. Flawed people are always more interesting—and we are all flawed in our own way. Even though I might write paranormal or sci-fi I want the characters to be relatable. When writing contemporary romance I want the reader to feel as though the character could be a friend or their neighbour or someone they went to school with.

Q. What’s next?
A. I’m working on Ripley’s story (he is one of Dan’s friends). I’m also working on the sequel to Desire to Fall (science fiction romance), which is getting quite dark.

Her hand snuck over his hip and into his back pocket. ‘Is there anything useful in your wallet or do we need to go to the bedroom?’

‘I’m good either way.’ He tugged her closer.

The length of him pressed against her. Her panties offered no protection.

‘You want to leave the shoes on?’ He smiled against her lips.

‘I can.’ She tugged his wallet, it felt like leather, out of his pants and opened it up. He didn’t try to stop her. She felt around while he distracted her. Eventually she found what she was looking for. Two of … he was hopeful. She put his wallet on the kitchen counter. ‘So, should I turn around like this?’

Indigo twisted in his arms so her butt rubbed against him. He nipped at her neck as his hands moved lower to grab her hips. He ground against her.

Her heart kicked over. She didn’t want to waste the time it would take to walk to the bedroom. His fingers slid into her panties and then lower. She bit her lip and closed her eyes as his fingers danced over her sensitive flesh.

‘I’m fine with here,’ she murmured.

‘Me too.’ He pushed her panties down and she stepped out of them. The heel of her shoe briefly catching.

In stockings and shoes she felt more exposed than she did naked, but she wasn’t going to back down now. She rested her elbows on the counter and wiggled her butt. His zipper ratcheted down. The tearing of the packet was too loud. Her breath hitched and it felt like hours crawled by while she waited. Then his hands were tracing down her spine and smoothing over her buttocks.
