Warm Hearts by Kristian Parker Release Blitz

Release Blitz. Kristian Parker’s Warm Hearts.

Arvid Nilsen was once a big star until fame chewed him up and spat him out. Now he’s focused on building a career writing the songs instead of singing them.

A chance encounter with busker Cesar Rodriguez in New York sees the two thrown together in the pursuit of that special song which is going to change everything. When Cesar turns up on Arvid’s London doorstep, something sparks that neither of them can control.

Yet one of them isn’t being as honest as he could be. Will this perfect combination fall apart before they can even begin?

His thoughts were disturbed by music ahead. Someone was singing the Frank Sinatra classic That’s Life and they were doing an incredible job. Arvid dashed forward to the block before his hotel. A young man sat on a low wall with a guitar and a woefully empty hat in front of him. A few people had stopped to listen—a minor miracle in these parts.

Arvid took in the singer. He was stunning. Most likely Mexican with jet-black hair and beard. His eyes shone as he powered through the lyrics. Arvid knew that feeling. The incredible high when lost in a song. He ignored the cold and listened to the singer run all the way through. When he finished, Arvid clapped wildly.

“Bravo,” he shouted.

The singer seemed startled for a second, as if he’d forgotten where he was. “Thanks, man,” he replied, blushing.

A few people dropped notes into his hat as they dispersed. Arvid walked over. As he got closer, his heart started racing. That never happened. “Wow. Very good,” he said. “You’re wasted busking.”

The man shrugged. “Have to earn the rent while I wait for that big break. Cesar Rodriguez.”

He held out his hand which Arvid gladly took. That first impact of skin on skin ricocheted around his system. “Arvid Nilsen.” To his horror, his voice cracked.

Get your act together. You’re over forty, for fuck’s sake.



“Surprised to see me?” Cesar asked. His brown eyes shone in the streetlight.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the sixth book in the series – and I am really enjoying the variety of people who live in Queens Crescent and how they have developed a community. Arvid has been a bit of a mystery up until now, so it was fascinating to find out why!

I did find Arvid's nervousness at even contemplating a relationship, after such a long time, both frustrating and utterly understandable. He was so happy to help Cesar succeed and yet, so frightened of being used again. It set up the tension, even if it was pleasantly low level. The idea of creating a Christmas hit was engaging, and I really enjoyed getting some insight into the creative process.

One of those books which help get one into a Christmassy mood and cheering on another happily ever after for a resident of Queens Crescent.



“You have balls. I’ll give you that.”     “My balls thank you for the recognition,” Cesar replied. “However, it’s my mind I’m offering.”


Author Bio

I have written for as long as I could write. In fact, before, when I would dictate to my auntie. I love to read, and I love to create worlds and characters.

I live in the English countryside. When I’m not writing, I like to get out there and think through the next scenario I’m going to throw my characters into.

Inspiration can be found anywhere, on a train, in a restaurant or in an office. I am always in search of the next character to find love in one of my stories. In a world of apps and online dating, it is important to remember love can be found when you least expect it.
