“I’m Glad You Came” – the Songs Behind the Book

Is that a wolf in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Seriously though, here’s the still-being-tweaked cover for my next book in the 50 Loving State series, HER VIKING WOLF, which is set in Colorado and will release next week on Amazon. So keep your eyes on this site for more details, which will be coming soon.

Meanwhile, I thought it might be fun to do a post about the soundtrack songs for my books. For every book I’ve written so far, I’ve chosen a Top 40 song that, if I had the wherewithal and the desire to use it for a book trailer, I totally would.

For THE OWNER OF HIS HEART it was “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele:


For HER RUSSIAN BILLIONAIRE it was “We Found Love (In a Hopeless Place)” by Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris


For HER VIKING WOLF it was “Glad You Came” by The Wanted


And for my next novel, THE WILD ONE (aka the Andrew Sinclair book), it’s — gasp — “Wild Ones” by Flo Rida ft. Sia



Wow, that was the first time I saw most of those videos, having mostly listened to them on radio. And I now realize that they really don’t match my books. Just goes to show you how much music can inspire you when you’re able to form your own mind pictures.

But what songs are you just loving right now? I am enjoying the latest Santigold album on repeat, since seeing the music video for its lead song, “Disparate Youth” on Violet William’s author site. But I’m always looking for new music to commute to, so let me have your suggestions.

    I enjoy your reviews very much, honest and detail. I started reading interracial romance novels in 1994 starting with Sandra Kitt. Over the years I encounted many writers of this genre and some are arwful. I prefer paperback instead of ebook and I have spend a deal of money on these writers, when I purchase books I usually come to your blog first and read the reviews. By the way I purchase one of your book ; well done.

      Thanks so much for buying the paperback. I also started with Ms. Kitt’s novels, and even though I make sure to always read the samples now, I occasionally get burned. I chalk it up to cost of reading. You gotta kiss some frogs…
