Nikki Lynn Barrett presents The Key to My Heart

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...


“Where do you want to belong?” Randy finally asked.

   “What's with the philosophical responses?” Blaine shot back, totally caught off guard by what he'd asked. What got her the most was how she didn't know the answer.

   Randy chuckled, thankfully he didn't seem offended. “I'm the oldest of a bunch of sisters, Blaine. I tend to ask a lot of those kinds of questions.”

   “And they still go to you for advice?” She cracked a smile.

   “Maybe I trap them. Kind of like how you're all the way up here with me, no way out, and now you have that question in your mind.” Randy replied. He reached across and brushed her hair away from her face.

   “When did you become so evil?” Her voice came out hoarse.  Blood rushed to her ears. All she could think about were his lips, so close. So sexy. So..Oh God, what was happening to her? Was she starting to fall for Randy Hughes?

   “Apparently the same time you've not been fearless. We're seeing sides of the other we haven't before.”

   Wasn't that the truth?

   “We're totally missing the view.” But she never took her eyes off Randy's face.

   “We could always ride again.”

   Yeah. They could. And right now, she could lean over and...

   Holy hell. Randy beat her to it. His lips crashed over hers.  Blaine's sigh caught in her throat as she closed her eyes, wrapped her arms around Randy's neck and kissed him back.

   Hard, fiery kisses. Fingers tangled in hair. At one point, Randy caressed her cheek.  He moved away from her lips, and planted soft kisses along her jaw and her neck. She uttered another moan, titled her head back until she needed his lips back on hers.

   Need exploded in her. Raw, heated passion.  She couldn't think. Only feel. Randy wrapped his arm around her and pulled her even closer, if that was possible. The Ferris wheel jerked again, and Blaine felt them descending. They pulled apart, breathing heavily.

   “Ferris wheel kiss. Total small town appeal.” She had nothing else to say, so of course, Blaine cracked a blunt, stupid comment.

   “I know, I know. A little cliché.” Randy's lips were moist as he pulled away. His arm still around her, he touched her cheek gently with his thumb.

   “Sometimes, cliché is underrated.”


Revisit the characters you've come to know in small town Harmony's Echo, as more changes settle upon them.
