Publisher's summary

In the early '90s, Scarlet, a painter and high fashion model, finds herself working in some of the world’s most famous fashion capitals. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of The Westies, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom. What ensues is an unhinged ride of a novel following the audacious lead female protagonist as she navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and downs of dating a legendary musician from one of the biggest rock bands in history. 

A riveting and heartfelt journey of figuring out one’s own path and championing that aspect to finding their dreams. Rich in spirit and relatable for all those who have ever had the courage to chase their dreams and pursue an unconventional path in this glorious world. A pause-resister, frequently injected with laugh-out-loud humor, this is a front-row-seat-of-fun debut that is being heralded as the earnest generation of authenticity of a '90s voyage. Susan Holmes McKagan shines in The Velvet Rose.

Great ROCKING story!

What a great pumping story! Very well written and loved the different styles used for the two point of views of the lead parts. It brings you back to the 90s and gives a true insight in rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle! And Barrie Kreinik did an amazing job with the “vocals”!
