      Tristan Loren is the first to admit he’s lived a privileged life.
      However, the top schools, the best games and phones and cars, the finest of whatever his heart desired has come with strangers yelling for his attention and camera flashes in his face.
      His classmates have visions of college life in the fall following senior year, while his fantasy is a normal existence. Whatever normalcy is, he’s sure it’s not graduating with honors–and his virginity.
      Aside from having a paranoid mom who has made it her mission to see that he’s never alone with a girl, he wants his first time to be with someone who doesn’t know him as Jack Storm-of-the-multi-platinum-Jackal Junior.
      Chasing the vision of a woman and a world who doesn’t know of him takes him from the sunshiny suburbs of Dallas to the snowy streets of Detroit.
      When he sees Sash in person, the girl he’s texted, phoned, and Skyped for the better part of a year, he’s drawn to her secret smile, and the tattooed half sleeves decorating her arms. Her fiery, fun personality and musical skills make her seem the soul mate he’s been seeking.
      But Sash has her own secrets—secrets that make him wish he’d never met her. Falling for Sash and finding his own identity may cost him more than what’s in his wallet.
A Shit Storm can stand alone but for fans of Six Silver Strings Series, this novel includes scenes with characters from G-Strings and D-Strings with several appearances of Jack and Marissa Storm.

 She’s intent on what she’s doing, and my curiosity gets the best of me. A weird feeling fists my heart. Like, what if she’s chatting with some guy at midnight as she had to me off and on for months?
Easing around behind her chair on the pretext of taking the empty bottles and trash to the kitchen, I pause and feel a shocked breath leave my lungs.
Instead of checking social sites on her tablet as I’d assumed, she’s drawing.
A dragon with its wings spread wide. Fire shooting from its mouth and nostrils. Panicked people on the ground. It’s terrifying and beautiful.
Her spine straightens, and she pauses, realizing she’s being watched. But she doesn’t turn around.
Without saying anything, I move into the kitchen and trash what’s in my hand. When I return, she’s powered the device off and is removing a stretchy glove that covers her pinky and part of her hand.
“It’s beautiful,” I say, as I sit on the couch.
She shrugs and remains quiet, staring at the dark tablet. I am about to apologize for looking, when she raises her eyes.
“What’s your dragon, Trey?”
“My dragon?” I shift my gaze and my body slightly away from her bubble of space. I know what she means. After seeing the picture, the people fleeing the monster, some turning to look over their shoulder, some intent only on what’s ahead and running away, the double meaning is obvious.
Your dragon.” Lifting a foot to her chair, she leans forward, resting her chin on her bent knee. “Everyone has dragons.”
“Yeah. I guess they do.”
“You don’t have to tell me.” Blowing out a breath, she looks disappointed. Not upset as if she wanted my gossip. Saddened because I won’t confide in her.
I understand where she’s coming from. Late at night, we had typed our secrets to one another into a cyberspace vortex. It had been easy to spill my thoughts and feelings onto a laptop keyboard, or to lie on my bed at home and speak to her on a Skype screen.
I had told her a lot of stuff, including my breakup.
But I had never shared my dragon.

Lisa Gillis lives in Texas among family and loves it all, from the beaches deserts to the sprawling metropolises.  Her loyal, loving musician husband inspires her fictional men, and her beautiful-hearted son brings the light to her world.

Writing is her passion, and she strives to blend the perfect mixture of fantasy and reality into her books. While listening to music, the little voices in her head become the fascinating characters in her novels, and each series, including Silver Strings, is infused with her love of music, bands and concerts.

When she’s not writing or making her own music on her guitar or drums, she’s catering to her spoiled, hyper and lovable chocolate lab, Bailey.

    • clynsg,

      There are 10 mandatory entries with two simply being visiting a Facebook page, sending a tweet and adding to Pinterest. The other couple take a few seconds. 3 entries are totally optional, and the giveaway itself is optional. You enter tons of giveaways and do far more tasks to win soap (writing blog posts is pretty time consuming , so I have to wonder why these simple tasks for this giveaway (which take less than 5 minutes) are so vexing?

  44. I would get a new shirt. The book sounds great!

  45. I will put gas in my car, sounds like a good read to me.

  46. I would use the cash for medical expenses and give the guitar picks to a local musician. I think the book is great.

  47. I would pay bills with the prize winnings. I think the book looks very interesting!

Your turn!
