*Book Tour & Giveaway* Courting Chaos Series by Heather Young-Nichols-GUEST POST

Courting Chaos Book 1 
by Heather Young-Nichols 
Genre: Rockstar Romance 

A sexy drummer and a rock god’s daughter on tour together for the summer... what could possibly go wrong?


When Cross Rhodes from Courting Chaos mistakes me for a groupie and tries to kick me out of the venue, I remind myself that touring with my dad isn’t always easy. I don’t fall for rock stars—ever but Cross makes me want to break all the rules.

Summer fun crashes around me when I discover one of the openers prefers his women too young. Unfortunately for him, intimidation doesn’t keep me quiet.


Opening for Kissing Cinder is the break my band needs and none of us can mess this up. Then I try to remove a hot, sassy blonde from the venue and now I can’t get her off my mind. Indie’s off limits. The daughter of a man that can make or break us. What the hell am I thinking?

The only thing I know for sure is that I will protect Indie from my bass player at all costs. 

Courting Chaos Book 2 

Bellamy Harper needs an escape and becomes Ransom’s challenge.


My life has taken a hard turn. So, when my best friend asks me to join her on tour with her dad, I can’t say yes fast enough. I expected to be surrounded hot rock stars. But I never saw Ransom or our intense attraction coming. He’s impossible to ignore but given my crazy ex, I’m determined to keep my distance. That only works for about a minute before my former boyfriend shows up ready to reclaim what he says is his.


The stand-offish red head suddenly on the tour has me falling all over her and she’s everywhere I go since her best friend is dating mine. It takes a lot of hard work to break through Bellamy’s tough exterior and of course that’s the moment my ex-girlfriend decides to screw up my life. The media attention is too much for Bellamy and I can’t blame her. She has her own problems and didn’t ask for this.

With her psycho ex-boyfriend and my secret-keeping ex-girlfriend hindering any hope of a relationship, we’ll both have to confront our pasts if we want any chance at a future. 

Courting Chaos Book 3 

We come from opposite worlds and really shouldn’t work...


I’m used to sacrifice and hard work. Growing up in the foster system didn’t leave a lot of room for error. Then I land a job with one of the richest families in the state that might allow me to have the life I’ve been working so hard toward. When their son, Booker, comes home, I try so hard to keep things professional. Him being around make it impossible to ignore my feelings. But I work for his family... there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed.


When I’m called home to see my sick mother, I sure didn’t expect to find a hot as hell nurse living in the house, taking care of my mother. Paige is smart, sassy, and unimpressed by my rock star status. But my growing feelings could get in the way of getting back out on the road to escape my tense relationship with Dad.

I need to cement my place with the band and Paige can’t screw up her career. Can we find a way to do both? 

Courting Chaos Book 4 

It’s the opportunity of a lifetime and he’s the one person who could derail it all.


Getting a job has been my focus since the moment I graduated from college. And maybe coming to terms with my less than amazing childhood. So, when a job opens up to be the personal assistant of Courting Chaos’ manager, I go for it. Too soon, Dixon begins worming his way into my heart, everything might come unraveled.

Being with him could cost me the job he needs and the life I’ve dreamed of.


Everyone in the band might be catching feelings but that’s not remotely on my radar. I’m perfectly happy living the rock star life as the guitarist for Courting Chaos. With all the drama around the guys, easy is safest. Until everything changes when a joke gets out of hand and I do something I immediately regret. Making amends for my own stupidity might turn into the best thing to ever happen to me.

Being with her might not be the smart choice and certainly isn’t the easy one. Yet here we are... falling. 

Something Irish 
Courting Chaos Book 5 

A hot Irishman and a woman stuck in his country...

Maggie Dwyer and her mother are given a weeklong trip to Ireland when a last minute injury sidelines her grandma. It’s a chance to learn where she came from. When the trip comes to an end, Maggie is horrified to discover that her purse has disappeared. Her driver’s license and passport along with it. Even worse... She can’t leave Ireland with her mother.

Eagan O’Brien, the sexy pub owner Maggie’s been flirting with, steps in to help by offering his apartment to the damsel in distress. Maggie tries to flip her distress into her first successful one night stand.

But getting a replacement passport isn’t as easy as everyone thinks and Maggie stays for two more weeks.

Two more weeks of Eagan O’Brien.

Can Maggie turn that one night stand into something more or will luck not be one her side? 

Heather Young-Nichols is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romances. A native of the great and often very cold state of Michigan, she is better known at home and to her friends as the Snarker-in-Chief. A job she excels at beyond anything she could have imagined. She loves many things, but especially cold coffee, hot books, and baseball. But not necessarily in that order. 


 First I want to say thank you for having me here today! I’m Heather Young-Nichols and I write contemporary and paranormal romance with lots of snark and lots of steam.

Today I decided to discuss something that authors are asked pretty often.

Where does my inspiration come from?

The short answer is everywhere. Ideas come to me and sometimes I don’t even know where they came from. But sometimes, I do.

With Highest Bidder, a story about a college student who decides to sell her virginity to pay tuition, I read an article about a young woman from South America (I believe) who was doing that very thing to help with her mother’s medical bills. The idea nagged at me. I began to wonder… would people really do that? I found out the answer was yes but as I looked into it, Flannery formed in my mind. College is so expensive and more and more young adults have to be creative in their ways to come up with the money.

Another example would be Last Good Thing. I remember this one distinctively. I was driving and the song Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy by Fallout Boy came on. One of the scenes that made it into the book immediately formed in my head. Then I built the story around that one scene.

Courting Chaos was slightly different. Only because the series came together first then I had to figure out the stories. Though I had an idea about Cross even if he didn’t have a name at that point.

I was at a concert, All Time Low, which is always amazing. But as I watched and sang and danced, I knew I had to write a rockstar romance. All Time Low was my inspiration and more to the point, Rian Dawson was the inspiration for Cross.

This was probably just a long-winded way to say that inspiration comes from everywhere. And when I’m bogged down with my schedule, I don’t get many new ideas. It’s like my receptors are closed. Which is probably a good thing given that shiny new ideas are the number one thing to distract from what I’m supposed to be writing.
