**Winner of the 2016 Human Relations Indie Book Award** Have you ever mailed a fan letter to a rock star? Brenda Dunkirk did, but she didn’t think 80s metal star Keith Kutter would actually read it. She also never imagined Keith would end up living in her house and destroying her marriage.
Brenda thinks she’s the luckiest woman in the world when Keith’s band, Hydra, declares her home their base camp while recording their comeback album. She fantasizes about late night lyric writing sessions at her kitchen table and being the first one to hear all the new songs. With her help she knows the band will get back on top where they belong. Swept up in the glamour of being the rock and roll muse, Brenda risks her already faltering marriage. Tim, her husband, walks out on her and Hydra’s chaos, and to make matters worse her boss is threatening to fire her if she doesn’t get her act together at work. The band will not leave until the album is done--it could be another month or it could be another year.
Ultimately Brenda must choose. Is it possible to be one man’s wife and another man’s muse?
