Love Notes: Eight Country Romances
Country music tells a story. The songs come from the heart and soul…musical tales of good times, bad times, and everything in-between.
Whether it’s in a hole-in-the-wall honky-tonk or under the bright lights of Nashville, these musicians have something to say. From star performers in packed arenas to first-timers ready to make their dreams come true, they’ll serenade you with a love song.
Welcome to Love Notes: Eight never before published romantic stories with a country music twisted.
Nikki Lynn Barrett: 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.
