Publisher's Summary

Rhys Bellamy is the front man for the wildly successful 13 Shades of Red, a band hailing from New Orleans that is just a bit more than they appear. He's sexy, caustic, and on a path of self-destruction that has everything to do with the fact that he can speak to the dead.
A man hounded by the death of his fiancée, Rhys is a lothario of the highest caliber. His life, his band, and his agony celebrate his lost love, Phaedra, and it has made him a very popular man with the ladies, even if they will never mean anything to him. Too bad Phaedra has never and will never contact him.
When the band's first US tour meets with some unforeseen management issues, Saffron Richards is brought in to take care of it. A veteran of the business, Saffron knows all about Rhys and his reputation and doesn't want to become another notch on his belt. Too bad fate has it in for the both of them and gives them an attraction neither can deny.
Life on the road with an up-and-coming band has its problems, from bosses to groupies to just plain old flat tires. Phaedra, who has been watching from the mists and reveling in the misery of her lost lover doesn't want to see him happy.
Phaedra crosses the veils on All Hallow's Eve to reignite the love that Saffron has set to ash in Rhys. Phaedra is not giving him up without a fight. Not because she loves him but because she doesn't ever want him to forget.

I liked this little supernatural rock and roll story, and am glad I have the other 2 books waiting in my library....Rhys can see and talk to the dead...he doesn't like it, but it is his curse and calling...He is a rock star, and his band has some other very interesting super natural people in it too...Saffron is hired as the band manager, after the previous manager OD's and has an instant attraction to Mr tall dark and broody Rhys...he wins her over and they sleep together...learning they really do like each other...but Rhys is haunted by the dead ex Phaedra, and she is not happy...Good story and I will be continuing this fun and very interesting story!

Any additional comments?

This was a new author to me and a genre that I have not read a lot of. Initially I was a little lost, but I quickly became involved. I really enjoyed this book.
Rhys Bellamy is a troubled man, almost destroyed by the death of his fiancé. What hurts him the most is that he can see and speak to the dead and yet Phaedra has not come to him in death. The lead singer in the 13 Shades of Red band, he has spiralled down a road that he may not be able to come back from.
Enter Saffron Richards who is hired to manage the band. She is determined to avoid the serial ladies’ man and concentrate on her job only, but she doesn’t count on the insane attraction that she feels for the tortured Rhys nor the fact that the attraction is mutual.
I enjoyed the interaction of the two main characters . The sex between these two was hot and erotic and the paranormal twist that was woven throughout the story kept me reading to see what was going to happen next.
I look forward to reading more from S.A. Price and to be honest I am rather anxious to see what happens to the other members of the band.
