Hey guys! Let’s welcome Lacee Hightower today to celebrate her new release, Intrigue Me! She’s going to share her musical inspiration with us!
- Better Than Drugs- Skillet
This was my main motivational song for this book. Calm the ache, stop the shakes—you clear my mind. You’re my escape from this messed up place. This band is actually a Christian band and I’m pretty confident they’re referring to God in the song, but they also play this on rock stations and to me it reminds me of a certain person who has stood by me through thick and thin. Thus, the inspiration for Intrigue Me.
2. Always- Killswitch Engage
It talks of someone lost to torment, which both main characters in the book are in their own different sense. I am with you always is something anyone longs to hear from a loved one and Intrigue Me has a lot to do with sticking through with that special someone no matter what kind of dark desires they may crave.
3. Do Not Disturb- Halestorm
…well listen to it once and anyone that reads any of my books will know why this was inspiriting.
4. Into the Nothing-Breaking Benjamin
Breaking Benjamin is one of my all-time favorite bands and at least one of their songs has inspired me on each one of my books. For Intrigue Me, Into the Nothing was that song. Dedicated by the band to all the people serving in the military or anyone who felt like they were going into the nothing, that’s exactly what I felt about the two main characters of this story, not only in a sexual sense, but a very personal one as well.
5. Evanescence- My Immortal
This band is a very dear friend of mine’s favorite band. I’m not positive as to the exact meaning of the song, but it reminded me of a special friend who supported me immensely while I wrote this book and since there’s actually a somewhat sad side to the book, it just seemed to fit.

Tangled Pleasures, 1
What’s a person to do when they discover everything they’ve believed is nothing but lies?
I grew up wealthy, a spoiled rich kid some would say, blessed with a natural athletic physique and erotic good looks that could get me into the panties of just about any girl I set my mind to.
I wanted … what I wanted.
And that meant one thing: the beautiful brunette from study hall—but she left me high and dry.
Today, I have a heart made of stone. I’m angry, a professed lifelong bachelor and a sexual sadist.
My soul is a cold river.
Eight years later, she’s back in my life and holding secrets that are ruthless, unforgiveable.
I want to punish her, make her cry, make her suffer. I want to hate her for what she’s done.
But I want my hands on her.
Mine. All mine.
I simply want … Ava Montgomery.
