Anyone who has been here before knows I love Wendi Zwaduk’s brand of sexy and fun writing. Now Wendi has become schizophrenic….er, what I mean is, she has developed an alter ego of sorts, someone with a hotter and yet at times playful voice. When Wendi writes as Megan Slayer, she keeps me on the edge of my seat and in front of the fan with a big glass of iced water. My favorite from her is the Glow Band series, and what is even more fun with this, is that there are free shorts stories on Megan’s website to go with these stories. There is one book on this list that I haven’t yet read, but I can say I have enjoyed every one that I do have more than once. The Glow Band is a very special group of musicians, some of whom just happen to be a bit more than human, and each will meet their ‘match’ and their happy ever after…eventually! (I will put links to the free stories at their appropriate places in the reading order and a buy link to Changeling Press, where these are available.))
The Glow Band Books by Megan Slayer
She’s everything he needs… if he can withstand the burn.
Atria Moline isn’t your average photographer. She controls fire. Sounds fun, being able to scorch whenever you like? Think again. She’s lonely and desperate for the touch of the man who can dance in her flame–if she doesn’t immolate him first.
Zac “Iceman” Frost controls the stage with his band Glow. He’s not about to back down from Atria’s challenge. He’d got secrets of his own and his sights set on her.
Contains some hot sex between a fire elemental and a sexy water elemental.

Christmas is the time to come together — with candy, shiny paper, and lots of white-hot sex.
Luc loves his role fronting the band Glow. He loves the adoration of the fans, the energy in the crowd, but it’s Christmas. No one likes a Christmas alone.
Taygan’s free spirit resists taming–except when it comes to Luc. Luc’s one hundred percent human. Taygan is all air elemental. He needs his space and freedom, but he’ll do whatever it takes to make Luc happy, including giving up his space and freedom to make Luc’s holiday one he’ll never forget–complete with the real Santa, peppermint candy, and lots of hot sex.
Contains a little rope play, some devious play with a peppermint stick, oh and lots of manlove.

Sometimes the one who drives you the craziest is the very one you can’t live without.
When Taygan walked, Luc thought he’d never see his best friend again. That’s fine. Luc’s busy with his band, Glow, and isn’t really interested in having a love life. There’s just one small glitch. He’s lonely without Tay, and his pride can’t take losing him again. It’s up to Luc to decide, but can he live with his decision?
Taygan thought he could handle his element and have a permanent relationship with Luc – until the need to follow the wind element took over. But being away from Luc is killing Tay’s element. To make things worse, Luc’s not waiting around for Tay any longer. What’s a guy to do when his lover is the very air he breathes?
Opposites attract? Are you kidding?
For Ike Clanton, having competition means winning. Best at the guitar, biggest ride, highest hair, most tattoos. Until he meets Tallulah. She’s nothing like he wants, but she’s everything she needs — he just has to figure it out.
Tallulah never wanted to join Glow. She’s there as a favor, and not to Ike. An Earth elemental and a rock star shouldn’t mix, should they?
Add overzealous greenery and a heaping helping of ego to this mix and shake wildly. Maybe being down to earth isn’t such a bad thing after all.

Love doesn’t always happen according to plan.
Some guys have all the luck and some guys love the pain. Slash Gunderson knows that feeling well. His place behind the drums for Glow is a dream come true. Can he accept his need for kink and the man who makes his heart beat?
Hiram Moline loves his job as the head of security for Glow. He’s also in love with Slash. There’s one major glitch — someone has been sending Slash threatening letters. Hiram’s not about to let anything happen to Slash. Can he convince Slash they’ve got something strong or will the stalker get the upper hand?

Coming Soon from Changeling Press
The next in the Glow Band series.
She’s the key to his destiny, if he’s willing to embrace position of power.
Ansen doesn’t believe he’s alpha material. He lives live on his own terms and keeps feelings out of the equation—until a chance meeting at a Glow concert turns his world upside down.
Willow liked having all access to her favorite band. She lives in the shadows and keeps the band’s fan site running without fail. One glimpse of the dark stranger proves there’s more to live than a laptop screen.
But is he too much of a gamble if her heart is the ultimate prize?
Each of these books has so much to love: hot heroes, a bit of danger and lots of scorching hot sex – in Atria’s story that is literal by the way. There is so much more to these characters. Atria is a fire elemental, and can’t stay with one man or they will become ashes. Zac, lead er and all around hot musicion, is convinced she is his match – the one woman who will offset his ice element with her heat. But another fire element is trying to claim her – can Zac win her for his own?
Taygan is an air element who believes he must be free to go where the winds lead him, even when it is away from Luc. When he realizes his element is only strong when they are together, will that be the tipping point in their relationship?
Ike Clanton is the guitarist who has to be the biggest and the best – but can he learn that sometimes big doesn’t mean better, and Tallulah is nothing like what he thinks he wants – but everyone knows it isn’t good to always get everything you want. Sometimes, to quote the Rolling Stones, you get what you need.
I think my favorite couple is this latest one – Slash and Hiram. Two hot guys into a bit of kink and ready to explore. But first, Hiram needs to find out who is stalking his hunky drummer, so he can finally show Slash just how he feels. I love the emotion running through this one.
This series is hot, passionate and so da**ed fun to experience – whether you like m/f or m/m, there is something here for everyone. Add a dash of danger, a spoonful of tongue in cheek humor, and a ton of hot and sexy and you have Megan Slayer’s Glow Band series.
All of Megan’s books are available at Changeling Press and I have provided links to all of her tempting freebies of the Glow Band books. I plan to award one commenter a surprise gift, so be sure to leave your email address when you comment.
