Book Tour! Tempting Tempo By Michelle Mankin

Sager Reed, the strong and silent bassist of the rock band Tempest, is well acquainted with loss. The thoughtful artist’s own tattoos only hint at his turbulent youth. He buries his guilt about it deeply within his troubled heart.

Melinda T. Belle, the daughter of a dysfunctional rock legend, as a rule avoids emotional entanglement. In fact, she has turned her back on nearly everyone and everything she has ever known. Now she is alone, trying desperately to find fulfillment in the one dream she has left, competitive skiing.



It is finally time for the story of the sexy, strong but sweet, gentle soul that is Sager.  He proves to us all that sometimes we are so much deeper beyond what you see on the surface.  Tempting Tempo is one sexy, emotional read that had this book whore not wanting to put down her kindle.  I was drawn into Melinda and Sager’s storyline and not only did I feel so much love for both of these characters that I was invested into their happiness.   Sometimes there are those characters who stay with you for a while after you finish their book and Sager and Melinda have done just that.  Temping Tempo can be read as a standalone in the series but I personally say to read them all because I have really liked them all!


“Let it go, Bluebelle,” I chastised myself aloud as I passed the tower with the unloading sign. Lifting the bar, I slid forward at the designated area, pointed the tips of my skis upward and leaned slightly forward as soon as my skis were completely on the ground. I stood, balanced and glided away with the chair providing the push. I was alone once I reached the turn to the snow cross course. I paused to take in a few mouthfuls of crisp clear high altitude air as I stared out at the amazing view. Top of the mountain. My favorite place to put things into perspective. The world spread out before me, an endless stretch of blue sky and grey mountains. The clouds below looked like a river of puffy cotton balls between snowcapped peaks. The early morning rays transformed last night’s snow into a carpet of glistening crystal.

Don’t think about Sager. Don’t think about the past, and whatever you do don’t you dare feel sorry for yourself. You got by on your own before April, before Tempest, before…him. You can do it again. It’s better this way. Safer. A heart can only take so much battering around before it runs out of reasons to keep beating.

Rock stars, myths, and legends collide with paranormal romance in a totally mesmerizing way in the MAGIC series.
