Doch Mitch k�mpft um seine gro�e Liebe. Und nicht nur er allein. Auch seine Freunde und seine Familie wollen ihm dabei helfen, Nadine zu erobern. Das ist allerdings leichter gesagt als getan, denn es gibt jemanden, dem das Gl�ck der beiden ein Dorn im Auge ist ... Rockin' Midnight - Tame The Heat Liebe kennt keine Entfernung! Der vierte Teil der Reihe kann wie seine Vorg�nger eigenst�ndig gelesen werden.

Rockin' the Bronx
Author: Larry Kirwan
Publisher: Larry Kirwan
In this big, passionate novel the Bronx is burning in 1980-82. John Lennon is being stalked, Bobby Sands is dying, the Reagan Revolution has begun and AIDS is about to be identified. But life goes on in the immigrant bars of Bainbridge Avenue as Sean arrives from Ireland searching for his girlfriend, Mary. He finds a lot more than he's looking for, including Danny McCorley, a hard-hitting, book-loving, construction worker with a shadowy past in the Irish Republican movement and a secret... In Rocking the Bronx Larry Kirwan delivers a brilliant mash up of a novel that is part coming of age tale, part portrait of the artist as a young man, and part immigrant saga. His portrayal of young Irish loose on the hard streets of the Bronx in the 1980's is powerful and evocative and his characters, whether they are experiencing elation or desolation in a strange land, are deftly drawn. This novel serves as an elegy for a lost time and place - the vibrant and chaotic New York City that thrived in the shadows of the Age of Reagan. It is the kind of book that will stay with you long after you put it down. Thomas Kelly (Empire Rising) With language that is electric and at times even startling, Larry Kirwan deftly tells an authentic New York story: about the Bronx of the early 1980s; about the lost children of Ireland; about sex and drugs and the healing gift of rock and roll; about our ache for connection. Not a single word is false; he has the gift. Dan Barry (City Lights: Stories About New York) This is a Bronx tale full of raucous life and unvarnished reality. It captures a time when the Bronx had become a synonym for urban decay and conflict, and a new generation of Irish immigrants struggled to get a toehold on America. There are no ethnic niceties in these pages, no phony-baloney version of multicultural harmony. This is the urban American of the 80s in all its raw squalor and splendor. Every page sparkles with memorable characters and lyrical accuracy. Peter Quinn (Banished Children of Eve) "A tale of the tunes, the beats, the rhythms and the blues of two closely-related islands, Ireland and Manhattan, connected by an Atlantic of bittersweet stories. This is a sixteen-wheeler, power-chord boogie of a book, which will delight all Black 47 fans and many more besides." Joseph O’Connor (Star of the Sea) "Rockin' the Bronx has a headlong momentum and street-level immediacy, teeming with drama, romance, and politics." -- Philadelphia Inquirer A tremendous rock n roll saga ... The prolific Kirwan offers writing about the transformative and curative powers of music and performance that is brilliant on its own, but his lovingly rendered portrait of American and Irish social and political realties in the 1980s is both brutal and magical. --Library Journal

From USA Today bestselling author Terri Anne Browning. With one promise her life was changed... Saying goodbye to my mother also meant saying goodbye to my life in Virginia. After reluctantly making a promise to my mom, I was California bound with the father who I haven't seen since I was four years old. I was miserable living under the same roof as my step-monster and the two step-bitches from hell. My only saving grace? Lucy Thornton, daughter to Demon's Wings' drummer, Jesse Thornton. Without her friendship-and her odd rocker family taking me in as one of their own-I was sure I would have lost my mind after the first week. A blast from her past... I never thought I would see Jace St. Charles again. Honestly, after the way he'd broken my heart, I would have been just fine without having to see his face for the rest of my life. With Lucy's close friendship with Harris Cutter, owner of the hottest new club in SoCal and Jace's new boss, I was forced to see that damn face often. Forced to see the way every girl seemed to trip over themselves to get close to him. A second chance? Being tossed into one situation after another with Jace made it hard to fight the fact that I wasn't as immune to him as I wanted to be. But, damn it, I was only human and he was hell bent on winning me back. Rocking Kin is the third book in The Lucy & Harris Novella Series.
