What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?

Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.

Until Libby Myles walks into his life.

Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star that's the issue.

Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.

But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …


Here's some background on What Goes on Tour and the author:

What Goes on Tour is single title novel and the idea hooked me right from the beginning. I liked the thought of writing about a rock star who wasn’t like the normal party hard singer with a full entourage that you see in many novels and TV shows these days. 

I’d love it if readers enjoyed the novel and maybe took with them that people are often different from their public persona.

One of my favourite scenes is probably the dancing game scene because I had a lot of fun writing it.

Something unique about me… I’ve recently taken up vintage motocross and I’m the passenger on a sidecar. I’ve attached a photo because people often think that a sidecar passenger just sits on the side but it’s a lot more work than that!

Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when she’d run out of books to read her mother handed her ‘Hot Ice’ by Nora Roberts and Claire instantly fell in love with romance novels.

The love of reading soon turned to a love of writing and she struggled to keep within the 1500 word limit set by her teachers for her creative writing assignments. When she finally decided to become serious about her stories she joined Romance Writers of Australia, found her wonderful critique group and hasn’t looked back.

When Claire’s not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games.

Claire lives in Western Australia, just south of Perth with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs.


Libby has just offered to be Kate’s nanny. She is going to be looking after Kate that night 
as a test run, while Adrian is at his concert and she’s just left. 
Adrian turned away from the entrance and sighed. He was torn. The pain of his 
brother’s death crept up and blindsided him, making him vulnerable. Was that why he 
was considering hiring Libby as Kate’s nanny?
It was true she was good with Kate. Buying her the notebook had been a lovely 
gesture and she was patient and attentive. But he saw Kate gravitating toward her in a 
way she never had with Emily. Emily had been all business – friendly enough, for sure – 
but always slightly stand-offish. Libby was just Libby, interesting and kind.
And that was another problem. He couldn’t deny he was attracted to her and 
he had to add that to the equation. The nanny he hired had to be the best for Kate’s 
well being and nothing to do with him. He’d promised himself he wouldn’t hire anyone 
he was attracted to. But he also didn’t have a lot of choice.
He went to Kate’s bedroom and poked his head in. “You can come out now.” Kate 
jumped off the bed and raced out, looking around. “Where’s Libby?” “She’s gone to her 
room to get ready. She’s going to come back and look after you tonight.”
“Yes!” Kate did a little happy dance.
Adrian smiled. “Kiddo, we need to have a talk.” 
“Uh, oh.”
He led her over to the couches and they sat down. “I need to find you a new 
Kate slouched down in the seat. “Yeah, I know.” She peered up at him. “Can we 
make sure she’s not like Emily?”
“What didn’t you like about Emily?” Adrian asked.
Kate shrugged. “She was a bit boring. She didn’t really like to play games or do 
anything except shop.”
The guilt was sharp and hot. Adrian pressed his lips together. He should have 
noticed. “Why didn’t you tell me?”
“It didn’t really matter. You and I do all the fun stuff.”
In other words, when he wasn’t around Kate was unhappy. God, it had been a 
mistake bringing her with him. He’d thought it was for the best – she’d get to see the 
world, and being in a different place might help her forget for a little while – but maybe 
he’d been wrong. Maybe Susan had been right. The doubt that was never far away 
hovered over him. “What’s on your nanny wish list then, kiddo?”
“What?” She squinted at him.
“If you chose your nanny, what kind of person would she be?”
Kate sat up straight, screwing up her face as she thought. “She’d have to like to 
play games like cards and board games.”
Adrian jumped up and took her notebook from the table. “Games.” He wrote it 
Kate grinned. “She needs to like to go out and do stuff – but not shopping. Go 
“Exploring,” he said as he added it to the list. “Got it. What else?”
“She should be able to cook. Emily wasn’t very good.” Kate twisted her hands 
together. She did that when she wanted to say something else but she wasn’t sure she 
“Spit it out, kiddo.”
“Well, it would be cool if she knew about writing.”
Adrian’s hand paused for a second on the notepad. “Writer. Okay, is there 
anything else?”
“She should be fun and kind too,” Kate added in a rush. “All right. I think I’ve got 
it all. I’ll see what I can do.”
Could he ignore his attraction to Libby for the good of Kate? He had some 
thinking to do.
