Holiday songs, anyone? Or a holiday cover ๐ŸŽ„?

Did you catch DAMAGED DESIRES this week? I canโ€™t believe Dani and Nash had such a good turnout. If you bought it or downloaded it on Kindle Unlimited, thanks for showing up for them (and me!). I canโ€™t tell you how happy it makes me knowing Dani and Nash are finding a place in peopleโ€™s hearts.

Believe it or not, Iโ€™m going right from Damaged Desireโ€™s release into prep for My Life as a Holiday Album which is coming to you Dec. 7th! And today, I have the GORGEOUS cover for you that Megan at Designed with Grace created for me.

Yโ€™all, I put her through the WRINGER on this one. We went from a retro collage harkening back to the original cover for My Life as a Country Album, to a gazillion different couples. But Iโ€™m SOOOO happy with how it came out. What do you think of it?

Keep reading for the full book description, insights into the characters, an entire holiday album playlist ready to go, and a way to get a sneak peek of the story for FR๐ŸŽ„EE now.

Who loves holiday music? Iโ€™m a little addicted. So, Iโ€™m doing something a little different with the playlist for Holiday Album and my #musicmondays social media posts. Iโ€™m giving you ALL 42 songs on the playlist link NOW becauseโ€ฆumโ€ฆ HOLIDAY SONGS! Then, each week Iโ€™ll feature the songs from one of the six coupleโ€™s stories.

Today, Iโ€™m sharing the songs from Stephen and Khileyโ€™s story. Theyโ€™re childhood friends and soulmates. Theyโ€™ve been together so long that no one can remember a time when they werenโ€™t tied together like strings. It also reminds the family a bit of Camโ€™s relationship with Jake. Their friend and almost cousin, Ty, teases them about being โ€œStephley.โ€ What the family doesnโ€™t know is that Stephen and Khiley have a secret that is tearing at the fabric of them.

๐Ÿ’š Swoony heroes and sassy heroines

โค๏ธ Full length, standalone novel, but six HEAs

โ€œShe was the bow to my present, the universe of stars to my small round Earth.โ€

This holiday, all the children from the original cast of the album series come home with secrets sure to send their parents and their families into a frenzy. Will they be able to keep them hidden, or will they be exposed with a bang that isn't at all the New Year's Eve fireworks that are planned? Edie is so pregnant she's about to burst, but she's come back to her small town in Tennessee minus her Scottish, whiskey distillery owning husband. What she doesn't tell anyone is her marriage may be over before it's had a chance to really begin. Khiley and Stephen have been soulmates since they could crawl. Unfortunately, the secret they're keeping may be the one thing to tear them apart forever. Ty is tired of being compared to his dead, football god of an uncle. He wants to be recognized for his own talent and passion. The chip he's wearing on his shoulder may be the one thing to keep him from getting the woman he loves and his future in the pros. Eliza is ready to step into a future with the one man who's loved her for who she is rather than her famous family. The secret she shares with her Air Force cadet boyfriend is sure to knock everyone for a loop. Joining Watery Reflection has been an experience most musicians would give a right eye for, but to Mayson, itโ€™s a threat to everything he holds dear, especially his relationship with Grace. Can he set things right before he loses her completely? Ginny is the family member who keeps everyone elseโ€™s dreams on course. She's the shoulder to cry on and the conscience to guide the way. But when Cole walks into the room, she sees something she wants for herself. Can she have him without sacrificing her family's happiness? rom award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes six holiday love stories tied together in a colorful ribbon as original as the My Life as an Album series itself. If you loved any of the album series books, you won't want to miss this soul-filling, wintery goodness inspired by Lady A's "All I Want for Christmas Is You."

Need to catch up on the entire gang? Donโ€™t miss the My Life as An Album series box set with all four novels and an exclusive novella thatโ€™s available now on Amazon and FREE in Kindle Unlimited.

Reese knows one thing for a fact. Her best friend and rodeo king, Dalton Abbott, is never going to fall in love, get married, have kids. No way would he repeat his fatherโ€™s mistakes. Heโ€™s left so many broken hearts behind thereโ€™s gotta be a museum full of them somewhere.

But when he shows up at her door the same night sheโ€™s sporting a black eye from her last attempt at the folly called love, she isnโ€™t sure she can ignore the way his body calls to her. The look he gives her from under the brim of his hat promises both jagged relief and pain.

A sexy, HEA My Life as an Album series short inspired the Eli Young Bandโ€™s "Love Ainโ€™t."


Okay, thatโ€™s it for me today. I hope you have a gorgeous weekend full of books, love, and happiness.

Happy Reading and Stay Safe Out There!
