Ok so earlier tonight I posted a book review up over at Bluebird Reviews (read the whole article here: www.bluebirdreviews.com), a web-based music review site. I know I know. It’s a music review site I get it. But Juli Page Morgan’s books are not your average romance stories. In fact none of her books are your typical everyday romance novels. All three books: Crimson and Clover, Athena’s Daughter, and Song Without Words are all part of her Romance that Rocks series and that makes them unique.
I picked Crimson and Clover not because it was a finalist in Book Junkie’s Reader’s Choice Awards (it was), or even because Amazon chose the book to be part of its Kindle Big Deal promotion for December, I did it because I know the author, Juli Page Morgan; a fellow lover of Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin, French onion dip, a coffee lover, and who is a fantastic friend. Juli and I schlepped around Memphis, TN seeing all the musical sites and I know first-hand how much she loves music and its history.
Crimson and Clover is a story entrenched in the late 60’s early 70’s. You can (almost) smell the weed, feel the flower power, and free love coming from within the pages. Jay and Katie’s fire and passion never let up throughout the story, they are a couple you root for. Ms. Morgan researches and strives to be historically correct in all her stories and weaves her knowledge of music and bands right into every page. Her characters leap out of the book and you become enthralled with them. Whether you’re male or female Crimson and Clover has it all and then some.
CRIMSON AND CLOVER
by: Juli Page Morgan
Under Katie Scott’s flower child exterior beats the heart of June Cleaver. Though she digs her bellbottoms and love beads, she longs for the idyllic family life she was denied as a child.
Laughed out of San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury after the Summer of Love for believing rock ‘n roll and white picket fences can coexist she decides to try her luck in the bohemian neighborhood of Ladbroke Grove in London.
When she discovers her new friend Adam is starting a band with Jay Carey, she’s ecstatic. She’d admired the British guitar god from afar for years, and when she and Jay finally meet the attraction between them is instantaneous.
But life with a rock ‘n roll star doesn’t lend itself well to white picket fences. And when Katie Jay the secret she’s carried for two years it may end the dream before it begins.
Juli’s thrilled that Crimson and Clover has been received so well by readers. Since February, Juli’s published two more stories from her Romances that Rock catalog: Athena’s Daughter set in 1975 Memphis, and Song Without Words primarily set in a radio station in New Orleans in 1982. (Gee, wonder where she got that idea? Find out in the full article over at www.BluebirdReviews.com ) In both books, Juli strives to keep the realism that touched so many of her readers in Crimson and Clover. And best of all they’re full of the music that we all love.
Juli’s working on her next book, Sister Golden Hair, set in present day and it’s the first story that doesn’t have a rock guitarist as the hero. This time around he’s a lead singer and you’ll get to meet him March 2014.
All of Juli’s Romances that Rock are available in eBook and paperback at your favorite online retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Tower Books and more. And right now through December 22nd, Crimson and Clover is AMAZON’s big steal deal at .99 cents. Purchase it for yourself, your friends, wives, girlfriends, husbands, etc. Jay and Katie sizzle; you need to read their rockin story. Show Juli Page Morgan a Whole Lotta Love and purchase this book.

Juli Page Morgan is a former rock ‘n roll radio announcer who had the great luck to meet and interview lots of bands over the years. During those interviews she heard lots of interesting stories, but it was when the microphone was turned off and they were just hanging out that she heard – and saw – the really juicy stuff! Incorporating these revelations in her books (with names and locations changed to protect the innocent, and often the not-so-innocent!) lets her remember those wonderful people that briefly rocked through her life, and to take her readers on a hard rocking journey full of love, music and happy endings while giving a “backstage peek” at some of the things that really happened. Her Romances that Rock™ include Crimson and Clover, Athena’s Daughter, and Song Without Words.
Juli lives in Arkansas with her husband. When she’s not writing, she’s recording voiceovers for television commercials, remodeling her old house, and trying to convince her husband the world won’t come to an end if the television is turned off. She also listens to a lot of music at maximum volume and exceeds the speed limit when she drives. Juli’s an unapologetic lover of rock ‘n roll, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, and French onion dip, not necessarily in that order.
