Rock ‘n’ Roll High School 81: ‘Open Arms’ Works Like a Friggin’ Charm

Up to a little mischief on Rock ‘n’ Roll High School today, featuring an interview with the fictional Frank DeLuca, one of the heroes in Margaret Ethridge’s amazing book Paramour. (Yes, there’s more than one hero in Paramour, at least from where I’m sitting.) I was so excited when Margaret told me that this particular book was going to be part of a boxed set. I was even more excited to find out that Frank could do a post for my blog. Frank is one of my favorite romance guys of all time, the classic anti-hero, the guy you love and yet you aren’t completely sure why. You only know that part of you is pulling for him, part of you would like to figure out a way for him to get the girl, even if he has challenges that go far beyond the scope of a normal guy. FAR beyond. You’ll have to read the book to find out exactly what I mean. With seven books for .99, this boxed set is an incredible deal. Paramour alone is worth the price of admission!

Frank DeLuca

Warrenton High. I should have graduated in 1982, but I wasn’t exactly the, uh…studious type. I wanted to work, you know? Currently: Now? Now I do nothing but wait.

Band and/or song that reminds you the most of high school: Uh, that one about Bette Davis. All the girls were into that song. Never could figure it out.

Favorite piece of music memorabilia (poster, t-shirt, etc.) in high school: I took a girl to see Journey on the Escape tour. She wanted matching t-shirts. I wanted her. Amazing what a chick will do if you sing a little ‘Open Arms’ on the drive home.

Band that you hated that everyone else at school seemed to love: Oh, man. Aside from the screeching cat that sang the Bette Davis song? I swear ‘Endless Love’ followed me everywhere. Lionel Ritchie is so annoying.

Best show or concert you saw in high school: I didn’t really see any other concerts while I was in school, but I caught a few awesome shows after I ditched. Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica. Even caught Bon Jovi, but I couldn’t hear most of it with all the chicks screaming.

Best high school make-out song: Ha! That’s easy. ‘Open Arms’ works like a friggin’ charm.

ENCHANTED-3d-MDFrank DeLuca is the not-of-this-world charmer from Margaret Ethridge’s Paramour, which you can get as part of the Enchanted Lover Boxed Set, Seven Novels of Mystical, Magical and Paranormal Romance, out now. It’s a fabulous deal, also featuring books from Maddie James, JC Warden, Cheryl Norman, Jan Scarborough, Cat Shaffer, and JM Kelley!

  1. Thanks so much for hosting my guy today and for your kind words about Paramour! You are a doll!

  2. Oh, Frank. You are such a surly, sexy, pain in the ever lovin’ ass, and I can’t help but adore you. Even though you hate Lionel Ritchie and Bette Davis Eyes–my go-to karaoke song. Fantastic interview! Best of luck with the boxed set! 🙂
