Harmony’s Echo, Texas is a small town being put on the map. It all started with Baby Stetson when Avery Callimer finally gets the answers she’s longed for and finds the courage to chase her dreams.
Then, in The Melody In My Head, a woman on the run finds her place in this tiny map dot of a town. Lead guitarist Jameson finally has to face his past and has a chance at love….
Coming in July 2014, readers will learn about Blaine Grant, Jameson’s sister. You met her in The Melody In My Head, where there’s a glimpse of something going on between Blaine and Baby Stetson’s keyboard player, Randy.
Now their story is almost here. And today, we’re revealing the cover for The Key To My Heart. Are you ready?
One dream fails, a passion burnt out…
Blaine Grant hightailed it out of Harmony’s Echo a year out of high school to find herself. Finding a passion didn’t come as easily to her as it did for others around her. Now, Blaine has come home for good with mistakes she’d like to forget, but the past doesn’t want to forget her. Everyone thought she’d been selfish to not come back when she was needed the most, but Blaine never let anyone know the emotional hell she went through.
Another dream is just beginning to see the light…
Randy Hughes has always been the shy nice guy. He’s the glue that holds his family together. He’s the one who takes everyone in when they need it, and he’s the one whose own dreams are ignored. Now that big things are happening for the Baby Stetson band, Randy has to decide how to handle his family when his dreams are on the line…
A friendship is changing.
One spur of the moment, impulsive move leads Randy and Blaine into a dire situation that may bring them together, or pull them apart, just when he’s finally able to gather the courage to tell Blaine how he’s felt about her all these years…
Revisit the characters you’ve come to know in small town Harmony’s Echo, as more changes settle upon them.

Excerpt from The Key to my Heart:
“So, was that the end of my payback?” Randy grinned when he walked back inside after helping his sister get the kids to the car.
“Oh come on, it didn’t turn out that bad. You cleaned up pretty good with your moves.” Blaine laughed.
“Wanna know what I noticed?” Randy asked softly, standing so close. Another jolt of electricity shot through her.
He moved closer. “For a little while, you looked like there was a bit of passion there. With your dancing, I mean. Your eyes lit up when you were teaching me some of those moves.” His voice went even lower, husky. Sexy. Randy moved his hand and gently caressed her cheek. The look in his eyes was intense, full of…hell she couldn’t even figure out what. “I think you still have it in you.”
“ I-” Blaine was at a loss for words. He had a point. She had been enjoying herself. Randy made a great dance partner and even though he was very awkward at first, teaching him turned out to be a blast. She’d forgotten for a few hours how much she didn’t want to dance again. “You’re right. I did enjoy it. When the idea popped up in my head at first, I wanted to smack myself for saying it. But the way they all calmed down and got so in to it, and watching you turn into a one left foot kind of dancer, I did enjoy it. “
He still had his hand on her cheek, gently rubbing with his thumb.
Blaine took that moment to lean close and kiss him again. “Thank you, Randy. You’ll never know how much tonight helped me, even when I was supposed to help you.” She whispered after pulling away.
Randy finally moved his hand from her cheek, instead placing it on her shoulder. With his other arm, he pulled her closer. Without another word, he pressed his lips to hers. As she wrapped her arms around his neck, Blaine closed her eyes, losing herself in his kiss. He tightened his hold on her. “Blaine.” He uttered before his tongue plundered in her mouth, exploring.
Waves of need wrapped around her.
Then she pulled away. Abrupt. She opened her eyes and stared at Randy. She sucked in a breath. “What was that?” Crap, that sounded so utterly ridiculous.
“Well, I’ve only heard rumors, but I think that was a kiss.” Randy raised a brow as the left corner of his lips twitched upward.
