Author Biography

I write fantasy for teens and adults. I'm an avid reader and enjoy authors such as Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, PC & Kristin Cast, Richelle Mead, LJ Smith, Suzanne Collins, Derek Landy, Obert Skye, and Brandon Mull to name a few. I absolutely love vampires but I enjoy fantasy of all kinds.

I'm addicted to Oreos and White Knight drinks from Perks. When I'm not writing I enjoy traveling, playing board and card games, killing zombies on the Xbox 360 with my hubby, listening to music, playing guitar, going to concerts, and spending time with friends and family.

My favorite color is green and the uglier the shade, the better. I get bored of my hairstyle easily which has resulted in me having many colors of hair in the last ten years. My hair is currently red, but who knows how long that might last.

I live in Southern Utah with my husband and son. Readers can expect more from me in the areas of Rock Fiction and Paranormal Fantasy (perhaps even more mashups of the two) in the not-so-distant future.

Reviewed by Laura Carter for Readers' Favorite

Being in love with a vampire is never easy. Having fought for their relationship, famous rock star Trey has only a few weeks to wait until he can be made immortal by his girlfriend Aurora. But the course of true love never runs smooth, and despite the troubles they have already faced, Trey and Aurora must continue fighting against those who do not wish them to be together. Trey has to deal with the release of his latest album while trying to avoid those who have already tried to kill him and things won’t necessarily get any easier if he manages to become a vampire.

This is the sequel to the amazing "Blood and Guitars" and I was eagerly waiting to read this book and I am glad to say that it didn’t disappoint. While most second books fall flat, Heather Jensen has risen to the challenge and created a sequel that has even more action, romance and suspense than the first. The relationship between the two main characters matures and deepens and other secondary characters are well developed. As with the first book, music plays a large part of the storyline with most of the book being about how Trey juggles his music world – band practices, video shoots and album releases – with the world of the vampires. I love the music element of the book as it is part of what makes it unique. This is a lovely sequel to a great first book and I feel that Heather is most certainly a leading author in her genre. I have loved both books so far and now I am very excited for book 3, "Fangs and Fame".

I want to thank Readers Favorite, and specifically Laura, for this amazing review of Immortals And Melodies. Reviews are such an important part of spreading the word about a book, and I couldn't be happier about the praises sung here for my writing. Thanks again, Laura! I hope you'll enjoy Fangs And Fame as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Like it's predecessor Blood and Guitars, Immortals and Melodies continues the love story theme mashed up with the rock star life. This book is more on Trey and the play of emotions he has over the changes in his life. I was happy that Trey & the band finally had closure over Wes' death and his relationship with his dad is on the mend. There were parts that I found a little long, like Trey's hospital confinement and Aurora's recovery from Malena's attack but other than that I enjoyed the direction of the story.

Book Passion for Life

I enjoyed the second instalment of this series. Aurora and Trey are sweet characters and I like reading about their lives. They are great together and their love is pure and beautiful. What they go through in this book makes me like them even more as they face dangerous - life threatening situations, beautiful situations & heart-breaking situations needing only each other and their love to get through it, so sweet. There isn't really a character I don't like in this (apart from the obvious) they all seem genuine nice people, Trey's band especially. In the first book one of my complaints was that there seemed to be a couple of threats set up but not acted upon. . . . . well, now I get why that happened because it set up the main storyline for this and blended both books together and I enjoyed seeing that plotline come to fruition. I enjoy the combining of some of my favourite things in this book - rock stars, music, vampires & art - makes for an interesting read particularly with the bands recording, rehearsal, video making process and how hectic things are for them. I would however like to see some more vampire action, yes I liked what we get but I wanted more and not just the dangerous stuff either. The vampires are interesting characters and in my opinion underused especially Damir - there are some interesting developments in this about him & his father which seems to indicate something that Aurora and Trey could become involved in especially seen as his father seems every bit as enamoured with Aurora as the son. I'm also interested in seeing where the whole `super powerful Aurora' theory is going to go - I'm expecting big things in the long run. So, all in all - a good progression from Blood & Guitars that satisfied my need to know what happens next for them but has left me excited to see where things are going to go for them all now that the tour is about to start and other things, especially that ominous note at the end. 3.5*s

"Immortals and Melodies," Heather Jensen's follow-up to "Blood and Guitars," continues the tale of Aurora and Trey--a vampire and a human who risk everything for love.

With the approval to turn Trey into a vampire, Aurora believes the danger to his life is all but over. However, a mysterious opponent continues dogging the lovers' steps, leaving death and damage in his/her wake. Aurora is plagued by questions: is her decision to turn Trey the right decision? Is she strong enough to turn him? Will Trey survive the process? Who can she trust when the people who promise to protect Trey have agendas of their own?

Ultimately, events beyond her control force her hand. The mysterious opponent is closer than she realized. Immediate disaster is averted, but the far-reaching implications may be even worse.

Jensen brings the two-story arc to an effective conclusion, while masterfully setting the stage for the next chapter in Aurora's tale. "Immortals and Melodies" is another outstanding read that I recommend to YA, NA, and adult paranormal romance fans.

This book was better than the first one. Much more drama. Hospitals visits, wood stakes, car wrecks and change of major events!! The band gets the closure they need over Wes's death. The love of Trey and Aurora just grows even more in this book. Then the missing vamp that caused most of the drama.......where did she go and what is she planing? Can't wait for book 3!!!

This book was interesting and overall good. I would recommend to read. Author seems to be good. I have read one other one and was satisfied it that one to.

The second installment of the Blood and Guitars goes to show what time and perseverance can do for an aspiring author! The story line flows and quite frankly, I had a hard time putting it down to go to sleep, work, etc! I am anxious to read what Heather Jensen has up her sleeve in the next installment.

I've read this book about 5 times and i still feel like am missed something each time i pick it up, it's a must read. it is one of the best books I've read in my life. it tops the first book majorly, and i cant wait for Fangs and Fame.

Kaoskitty

this would make a good small film! the more i read the more i got hooked in. I really like the storyline here, as it has enough twists to differ it from other vampire novels. Can't wait for #3!

I love what I have read so far. It is gripping and draws you in. I love that I could get it wireless delivered to my kindle and that makes everything easier.

this cougar (me!) has fallen for trey. speaking as an elderly rocker, i enjoy the blood and guitar books. i love passing-for-human vampires. and i like it that all members of catalyst are really nice people. i am looking forward to reading about trey on tour (also looking forward to learning how to do kindle capital letters- blood and guitars books are only ones i have ever reviewed and this review has taken almost two hours to do cause i lost first attempt but i so wanted to thank the author. thank you).

This book was so much better than the first book "Blood and Guitars." Yeah it's still a vampire book, but the story was so much more than the typical vampire book. In this story Trey and Aurora continue their relationship. Trey knows that Aurora is a vampire and they plan for him to become one also... if he lives that long.

The vampires in these books are not harmed by sun or garlic, they just have extra powers when the moon is up. One myth that is true is that wood is poisonous for them. Trey continues with his album, the cover of which is painted by Aurora and Catalyst prepares to go on tour.

I connected with the characters much more in this album. They were less pedantic and much more relatable. The book had good writing and some very funny points. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters that were `real' and not like the vampires were perfect.

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds. I really enjoyed it.

I don't typically dig on paranormal romance. Thankfully, IMMORTALS AND MELODIES is way more than a paranormal romance. There is romance, but it's supremely excellent romance, not mooshy or sappy....just nifty.
There are thrills, action, and danger to go with watching the love between Aurora and Trey that bloomed in BLOOD AND GUITARS, grow into so much more. The reader gets to witness one of the loveliest ceremonies ever along with gut-wrenching sadness.
Someone does not want Aurora and Trey together and they mean deadly business. And I don't think I can say more without serious spoilers.

'nuff to say that IMMORTALS AND MELODIES is highly excellent. I loved BLOOD AND GUITARS and Heather topped it to the enth with this.
