Songs for WHAT THE HEIRESS WANTS


Our house is filled with music, so I suppose it's not surprise that my books are filled with music, too. The kiddo still goes to sleep every night to her favorite lullabies, there is always music playing in my office, and RadioMan is completely incapable of doing yard or garage work without music. I'm in the middle of writing my Billionaire Cowboys trilogy - 3 books, 3 brothers and 3 feisty females! - and I'm finding that several songs are overlapping between the books. 

Those songs - like Elvis' A Little Less Conversation (a song that always reminds me of Las Vegas) and Dierks Bentley's Sounds of Summer (a song I'm slightly obsessed with right now - fit the overall 'brother/family' theme of the series, and they also fit the books' settings (Las Vegas). But, each book definitely has its own feel. Here are a few of the songs that are specific to What the Heiress Wants, the second book in the series:

Tim McGraw ~ She's My Kind of Rain (this is Connor's theme - he never thought he'd fall in love, but Miranda makes him re-think that stance!)
Sade ~ The Sweetest Taboo (this is Miranda's theme because she's failed to separate her personal and professional lives before...and lost...but she can't resist Connor)
Shania Twain ~ She's Not Just a Pretty Face
Jake Owen ~ American Country Love Song (the love theme for Connor and Miranda)
Maroon 5 ~ Maps
A Thousand Horses ~ Smoke
Dierks Bentley ~ Say You Do
Chase Daniels ~ Gonna Wanna Tonight

Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local police--no, she wasn't a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer's capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along the way, she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just like the characters from her favorite books, she's living her own happily ever after.

QUESTION: What type of music takes you to your happy place?

WHAT THE HEIRESS WANTS

The Billionaire Cowboys trilogy by best-selling author Kristina Knight continues with What the Heiress Wants.

Denver publishing heiress Miranda Clayton craves more from life than society parties and shopping sprees, but her tycoon father refuses to take her seriously. Her solution? Beat him at his own game by going to work for his top competitor, Connor Reeves, in Las Vegas.

Connor isn't fooled by Miranda's new plan for a second. He knows exactly who she is; what he doesn't know is why she's pulling him into her games. After their first meeting, Connor knows what he wants - Miranda in his bed! But the more he's around his new vice president, the more he wants something deeper than a short-term fling. The question is does the lady want Connor - or his business?

Sensuality Level: Sensual  



Excerpt:

Connor tilted his head to the side. “Ground rules like?”
            “No public displays of affection. When we’re at work, we work. There is a lot to do with the new magazine launch, and we’re still not out of the woods with the existing publications.”
            “So you won’t be coming into my office at odd moments with empty file folders and a desperate need for my body?” His beautiful mouth twisted in a wicked smile.
            “As the male form goes, yours is quite good. But I think I can control myself between the hours of nine and five.”
            “So no nooners. Bummer. Any other rules we should abide by?”
            “No nicknames.”
            Connor blinked. “I shouldn’t call you Love Muffin within earshot of anyone in the office. Got it.”
            “You shouldn’t call me Love Muffin anywhere.”
            “No love muffins?”
            Miranda wrinkled her nose. “Definitely not.”
            “No nooners. No love muffins. So far, so good. Rule number three?”
            “We shouldn’t advertise the fact that we had dinner tonight, or any other night. And we shouldn’t mention the kisses from before, either.”
            “Damn it, I was planning on talking about that with the pressmen tomorrow.”
            Miranda pursed her lips. “I’m serious. This doesn’t have to be a state secret, but we don’t need to advertise the fact that we’ve been on a date, either. At least, not until we know where this is or isn’t going.”
