Author Brand – Sweet vs Sweet Hot

The Sweet to Your Salt

Maria Bernard – Author of *Sweet Hot Romance.

Brand* – My Books are heavy on the romance with a healthy dose of steam.

Readers have spoken.

Let’s talk Author Brand

Maria Bernard - Sweet

An author’s brand is defined by what readers have come to expect, what they look for and depend on from an author. It’s not always a conscious decision by the writer. It develops over time and as the author’s body of work grows.

The Sweet to Your Salt

I adore the above phrase given to me by a beloved reader. It says a lot with so little words. She enjoys my books in between heavier, dark reads. She sees them as a sort of palette cleanser, takes comfort in the sweeter side of romance that my stories bring. I love Contrasts, and this just about sums up why there’s room for all genres of books. What I get from this proclamation is that my books are the sweet to the saltier reads she also enjoys. Therefore we have Balance. Another one of my favourite words.

After publishing fifteen books, the word I see or hear often when readers review or describe my style is Sweet. Now that word when it comes to book descriptions may mislead new readers into thinking that my books contain closed-door, fade-to-black sexy scenes. But I assure you, that is not the case. The word sweet, in this case, leans toward *Sweet-Hot, open-door sexy scenes.

So be warned. Readers will encounter hot steamy scenes, written in a sweet way.

This isn’t so much a threat as it is a promise…

Rockstars Among Us Book Club

Still going, still growing…

What are you waiting for? Join us and be part of the best little Rockstar Romance community on Facebook!

About RAU:
Early January 2015, I started Rockstars Among Us Book Club. I could not find a Facebook Book Group dedicated to the rockstar genre, so I created my own. I wanted a group where our genre would not be lost amongst the multitudes of other genres.

Rockstars Among Us Book Club

I wanted to form a group where I could invite my readers to discuss and promote my books. However, I did not want to make it only about me, Maria Bernard.

Shortly after creating RAU, I started inviting other authors of rockstar romance. My goal was to create an easygoing, casual atmosphere where authors and readers could get to know each other and discuss favourite books, bands, and musicians.

Through my involvement with the group, I’ve met many readers and writers I now consider good friends. Author Lashell Collins shared a similar vision and is now co-admin for RAU. Together with Author Bella Jeanisse, we have made the group into what it is today.

Rockstars Among Us Book Club is open to all readers and authors of rockstar romance. Promotion by authors is welcome and encouraged (as long as promos are rockstar related). Participation of all members (readers and writers) is also encouraged.

Wherever Girl

Wherever Girl by Maria Bernard

Book Cover by Chloe Belle Arts for Wherever Girl by Maria Bernard Author of Rock Star Romance, Contemporary, New Adult, College, Paranormal Romance Fiction

Reader Reviews –
Pleasantly surprised by this book! Loved it!
“I won this little gem of a book in a giveaway a couple months ago. I finally got around to reading it and I was very pleasantly surprised! I love it when that happens! The story is moving and I feel a lot like Sara, the main character, does right now. I recently lost a parent and I couldn’t imagine losing both parents, like Sara has, at a young age. The book isn’t overly sad since the story basically starts when she decides that nothing is left for her in Chicago (where she is from) and heads to The Outer Banks of North Carolina to get away, and clear her head. Being a North Carolinian myself, this was another reason I connected so well with this book. Anyways, Sara’s situation is quite humorous when she arrives in NC. She wasn’t expecting to find love in NC, but the guy she meets takes her by surprise. I will definitely be reading more from this author. I loved her style and felt really connected to the characters. Well done!”

Like modern day fairy tales
Maria Bernard’s stories are always captivating, like modern day fairy tales. Wherever Girl is a sweet and melancholy love story that proves that not only do opposites attract, they also complete one another. Life is a cycle of endings and beginnings, sorrow and joy, growth and change, and Maria Bernard illustrates that beautifully in this story.

A wonderful story of love.
Maria writes such sweet love stories and this new one is fabulous. I love the location, the Outer Banks, it has a wistful and charming feel. Skylar meets Sara when she is his first guest at his newly opened bed and breakfast. She is trying to find peace after losing both her parents recently. As an only child, Sara feels like she is alone in the world. Skylar also lost his parents 8 years previous and is an only child. He is a gorgeous surfer and rocker and Sara is smitten. A few days of spending time together and Skylar knows she is the one. Sara is sceptical and suspicious of his sudden fondness for her. His friends are wonderful and she does enjoy the days they spend sightseeing and the evenings they spend together. Sara falls for Skylar also, he is so thoughtful and sweet. A few twists and turns and love is declared by both. A brilliant book from a great author.

The Balcony

The Balcony, Rockstar Romance, Paranormal Romance, Angels and Ghosts

The Balcony by Maria Bernard
Rockstar Romance with a Paranormal Twist
Starring: Emma, Wraith, Phantom, and Angel

❥ Excerpt: © 2015 The Balcony

“They crave attention,” Wraith said, looking back at her. “For some reason, you captivate them.” Some reason indeed, he realized, all too aware of her obvious feminine attributes, her shapely legs, the curve of her hips, the softness of her skin. “Perhaps you could try and ignore them, pretend they’re not there.”

❥ Synopsis:

In this unforgettable tale of loss and redemption, Emma is at her wits end. Having just moved into her first apartment in the Hollywood Hills, the intimidating characters next door are more than she bargains for, especially since her balcony, the very reason she rents the place, is situated right next to theirs.

Wanting to be left alone to wallow in self-pity, soul-destroyed rocker Wraith is at the end of his rope. The last thing he needs to deal with is his sexy new neighbor’s undeniable presence, something that he and his notorious bandmates have gone without for way too long.

When their annoying flirtations get out of control will Wraith finally find it within himself to step in or will he do nothing much like he’s done with his life these last two years? Will he become the hero that Emma desperately needs or is there more to this situation than meets the eye?

Reader Reviews – WOWZER
What an awesome story of loss, pain and love! Emma is craving her independence and rents the perfect apartment. As she settles in she meets her neighbors next door who are very invasive to her privacy and appear at the most unwelcome times and places like her bedroom! She finds out they were once rockstars which explains their long hair and tattooed look. The twins, Phantom and Angel, do have a secret……they are ghosts! The third nighbor, Wraith, is real but falling deeper into depression every day. Can Emma save him? You have to read this story to find out! You won’t regret it!

Amazing read! Maria Bernard is an exceptional writer
Great read! I love the flirting and sexual tension between the characters! If you are a rocker fan, this is the book for you!

I absolutely loved this hauntingly beautiful story…
I absolutely loved this hauntingly beautiful story of selflessness, love and redemption, of the death and rebirth of the human spirit. Melancholy and bittersweet, The Balcony is breathtakingly poignant. In this day and age, no one captures that elusive, true gothic essence quite like Maria Bernard. It’s everything that great gothic romance should be. As with all of Maria’s stories, I felt so comfortable with all of the characters that I didn’t want to leave them when I reached the end of the book.

Loved this book so much!
I have read quite a few books by this author and this is my favorite one. Such a beautifully written story. Wraith is a tortured soul who steals your heart, well at least he stole mine. To me the characters just jumped out of the book and grab you from the beginning. Once you pick it up you really can’t put it down. I highly recommend this book. Well done hon!!

Before Sam realizes what’s happening, their relationship has become serious, something she never intended. And then she discovers Dylan is hiding a dark secret that makes breaking up with him nearly impossible.
Sam is running out of time. She has to leave soon. She has no choice. But leaving Dylan could mean more than just the end of their relationship. It could also mean destroying him completely.

Her family name tainted by her great-grandfather’s crimes of piracy, Meriden Cummings is far from the typical 18th century woman. A social outcast, she works in a carpentry shop in a small village, where the people barely tolerate unconventional behavior.
However, her life takes a turn after a gang of pirates attack her village and her blood reveals an ancient map adorned with Mayan glyphs leading to Death Island. An island legends say is ruled by the Mayan god of the underworld, Ah Puch. Her great-grandfather had sought after the island before he vanished without a trace. Now, Meriden is about to journey across the sea to understand her family history.
There are only a few problems: her growing feelings toward a mysterious stranger linked to her great-grandfather’s past; a greedy band of pirates after her great-grandfather’s legendary treasure; and a contract she has unwittingly signed in blood with Ah Puch himself.

He strives to do the right thing—study diligently, take care of his siblings, represent the family well—so why does he feel so unfulfilled?
Enter Lucia’s friend and teammate Maddie Brooks, who shines at blocking the ball and acing the serve. Too bad this graduating senior isn’t so confident about her life off the court. Her longtime boyfriend has just bailed on her, and med school applications loom large. Oh, and a nerve-wracking tryout for Team USA also approaches.

But will personal biases and family politics smother the slow burn of their attraction? Unless Maddie can learn to believe in herself, and Alejandro can become his own man, their kindling romance hardly stands a chance.
Will either of them be bold enough to try something new? Find out in this emotion-rich story that refuses to shy away from life’s hardest questions. Because love is worth the risk.

This contemporary steamy romance is a standalone story in this series that will whet your appetite and tease you enough to give you love, drama, comedy, and spice.
Thirty-three-year-old Gil Morris works in finance on Wall Street. He finds himself lonely and examining his routine life. He wishes he could shake things up a bit.
Twenty-three-year-old student Addison Nichols works in a popular coffee shop near the financial district. She’s been fantasizing recently about a businessman who frequents the store, but he has yet to notice her. She loves to admire him from afar; however, she isn’t quite ready to make her presence known.
She’s about to crack, though, and do something out of character to finally approach him. She thinks if she pretends to be someone else she can play a role, and do anything and be anything. Just maybe she can be someone else for one night—to have a taste of what it’s like to be with a man like that. Like Cinderella going to the ball, but in this scenario, it’s not a ballroom—it’s a bedroom.
What started out as an innocent fantasy quickly turns into something more because he isn’t interested in bedding her for only one night. Can Addison handle Gil, or does he prove to be “heart” to follow?
