Wicked Flower by Carlene Love Flores

     London Saint James. Now that rolls off the tongue nicely.
     Ert. Screechy Brake Sounds.
     Stefan Calderon, give me back the keyboard. Thank you. Now get back in your book. Sorry about that, London. What Stefan was supposed to say was Thank You for being such a wonderful hostess to us today. Seriously, thank you from the bottom of both our hearts. Mine and Stefan’s slightly dark and cracked one. You know I’m a huge fan of your writing and so I’m honored to be here.
     And, as has already been let out of the bag, I’m here today with a man whose name is Stefan Calderon. He’s the bass playing lead singer of Sin Pointe. He’s been very patient while his band-family got their books. Now, his story, Wicked Flower, is finally here! It is the fifth book of the series and the first to be rated erotic rather than just romance so thank you, Stefan, for that hotness. To celebrate its release as well as the series as a whole, I thought it would be fun to share some favorite “Stefan Moments” from the books at each blog tour stop. Today’s comes from Book 3, Sin’s Haven. Here, Stefan has just told the hero and band webmaster, Ben, that he isn’t gonna make it to the annual band camping trip. Owing Ben for breaking that news to the guys for him, Stefan helps his friend out with some sage lady advice. Please enjoy, from Sin’s Haven
     He was half joking when Ben told Stefan it was gonna cost him.
     Luckily, Ben heard Stefan laugh on the other end.
     “Okay, shoot. What’s your price?”
     “I need your advice. About a woman.”
     “You finally hook up with Erby?”
     “Not exactly.”
     Ben filled Stefan in on his Haven dilemma.
     “So, walk her home when she finishes up. Treat her nice. And don’t fucking get drunk this time.”
     Spoken how only Stefan Calderon could put something.
     “Yeah, thanks. But what about the other night? How do I bring up the fact I didn’t cover up my stuff?”
     “Benny, that was very unwise my friend, but it’s done. Look, you’re a good guy. I know you’re worried about that. But I guarantee you a grown woman like this Haven of yours is probably on the pill or she wouldn’t have left you a note saying you fucked her good. She enjoyed it, brother. Which means she’s not hung up on the fact you weren’t covered up.”
     “That’s not exactly how she put it.”
     “Okay, that’s my version of it. But do you see what I’m saying? She didn’t sound too worried about it so you shouldn’t be. And your worst case scenario isn’t that bad. You’ve got Daddy Material written all over you, big man. Kids love you.”
     Even though most of what he’d said was all kinds of jacked up, Ben was glad Stefan had called. He was right. Ben had to deal with whatever might come which was why he had to be here in person to meet with Haven.

And here is the Wicked Flower blurb:
  ~Editor’s Pick
     Sin Pointe front man Stefan Calderon is playing a very dangerous game and his mom’s live-in caretaker, Dani Foster, just landed right smack in the middle of it.
     Practically strangers when Stefan rolls into his small hometown looking to patch things up with Mom, his and Dani’s worlds collide with a hot and intense hook up. He knows right away this woman will make the perfect partner for his two weeks in town. But when she realizes whose son he is, and what he’s there to do, sexy times come to an abrupt halt.
     That is until they come up with a solution. Rules. Every game needs them. The question isn’t if they’ll break them, but when and how hard.
     It’s a wickedly delicious game, one neither of them intends to lose.

Thanks for letting me share with you today. If you’d like to spend more time with Stefan in his own book, you can find Wicked Flower at these lovely places:

  1. Fine, go ahead...(He's been bugging me all morning to say hello himself.)
    Hello London.
    What? That's all you've got, Stefan? Looks like someone's got an uncharacteristic case of shyness or maybe he's just still sleepy. I better go check Stef's temperature. Meanwhile, THANKS for having us today! Mwah!
