My Favorite Romance Couple: The Doctor and the Rock Star

When my fellow authors and I decided to chat about favorite authors from our own books this month, my first thought was….I have to choose just one??!! As you can imagine, when we spend so much time with our characters, it can be tough to pick a favorite.

But, if I absolutely have to choose, I’d have to go with Paige and Jared from my book Getting Lucky with the Rock Star (Holiday Encounters Book 3).

Paige Jordan is confident, strong and ambitious…and she has a secret. She’s spent most of her life working towards being a doctor, and now that she’s in her first year of medical school, well, saying she hates it is putting it mildly. For her, admitting it’s not for her is life admitting to failure and for a while she struggles to find a way to do something she loves while staying true to herself.

Jared Sloane is the lead singer for the rock band Sliding Violet. Paige meets him by chance at a hotel bar, and he becomes her second secret. When the sparks fly between them, they decide to see each other whenever he’s in New York—which seems to happen more and more often after he meets Paige. Paige doesn’t even tell her closest friends about her relationship with Jared, not wanting to share the one thing in her life that brings her joy these days.

When I started writing about Jared and Paige, I was expecting their biggest issue to be Jared’s ego. I figured he’d be the typical rock god who would have a few things to learn from down to earth Paige. But the opposite ended up being true.

Jared turns out to be a good guy who just happens to be a rock star. He works just as hard as Paige, and he goes out of his way to show Paige how much she means to him. As he came to life on the page, Jared just made me melt. It’s not hard to see why Paige falls so hard for him.

Ready to fall in love with Paige and Jared, too? You can find them on Amazon, either on their own or as part of the Holiday Encounters anthology:

How about you guys? Who is your favorite romance novel couple of all times? I’d love to hear your favorites!

Happy Reading!

  1. They sound like a really great couple! I don't know if I have a favorite couple (outside my own writing). Recently, I finished 'The Golem and The Jinni' and I really liked their coupling, how the relationship built and expanded so slowly. It was real sweet :)

    1. See, I have the opposite problem. I could come up with a lot of fav couples from OTHER writers (J.D. Robb's Roark and Eve, Mac and Barrons from KMM, a couple of Kristen Ashley's couples, the list could go on and on) but choosing one of my own is so hard!

      I haven't read the Golem and the Jinni. I'll have to check it out!
