One dream fails, a passion burnt out...
With no set plan and a desire to find a passion, 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 she knew. 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 guy until he discovered his love of music. It wasn't until joining the band that he grew out of his shyness. The oldest sibling and the only boy, he's pressured by family expectations to set a good example. 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.

She snuggled closer, resting her head on his shoulder. Randy slid his arm underneath her pillow and pulled her to him. She nestled in the crook of his arm.
"You definitely grew up. You used to be so gawky. Not any more," Blaine mumbled, her voice now sleep-filled.
He laughed. "Gee thanks." He loved her blunt honesty. If it weren't the truth, he just might have been offended.
"I meant that in the nicest of ways."
He leaned over, brushing a kiss to her temple. "Go to sleep crazy woman."
"Kay. I still want more secrets from you. I keep spilling mine."
His biggest secret was the way he felt about her, which she must have guessed now after the other night. "I'll dig deep down and find a few for you, then we'll call it even."
All he got in response was a deep sigh, signaling she'd pretty much given in to sleep.
As he laid there with Blaine all cuddled up against him, he knew he should get up and go. She was vulnerable. For once, he felt needed for real. Even though Blaine didn't know how she felt, she still needed him. After all these years, he had a feeling she might just start seeing him the way he saw her.

About the Author and Social Media Links
I'm an avid lover of books. I've been writing as far back as I can remember, completing my first "book" by fifth grade in one of those one subject spiral notebooks. I have a passion for music, photography, jewelry and all things creative. I live in Arizona with my husband and son, but dream of being somewhere much colder and stormier. For now, I'll have to live that life through my characters and stick it out with the summer heat.
