Been curious about my books? Want to see what I’m all about? Then check out this companion to COUNTRY HEAVEN, the first book in my new Dare River series set in the South, connected to my bestselling small town Dare Valley series that started with the#1 National Bestseller and USA Today Bestseller, NORA ROBERTS LAND.
Readers have enjoyed the numerous country music songs I wrote for COUNTRY HEAVEN so much (lyrics only, mind you; I’m not Carrie Underwood yet) that I wanted to share a dedicated songbook that highlighted the songs by themselves in all their Grand Ole Opry glory (a girl can dream, right?). Well, I guess I should say that my steamy Tim McGraw like hero, country music star, Rye Crenshaw wrote them… Oh, and I’ve included an extended excerpt of COUNTRY HEAVEN just for you…
The book is set against the backdrop of country music, Nashville, foodie splendor, family, and sweet forgiveness. Oh, and did I mention a bad boy Alpha male and black sheep who finds love and redemption? Here’s a little snippet about the book to whet your appetite: A down-on-her luck cook uses food’s magical properties to tame a bad boy country rock star after he hires her under false pretenses to restore his image. He’s got a secret past. She’s got a tragic background. Throw in their sass and wit, food and music, and you have a five-alarm fire.
Here’s a couple of things people are saying about me and COUNTRY HEAVEN:
