The Music Behind What the Heiress Wants

It's release day, readers, and that has me thinking about how I came to write What the Heiress Wants - and the answer to that is: musically!

Our house is filled with music, so I suppose it's no surprise that my books are filled with music, too. The kiddo still goes to sleep every night to her favorite lullabies, there is always music playing in my office, and RadioMan is completely incapable of doing yard or garage work without music. I'm in the middle of writing my Billionaire Cowboys trilogy - 3 books, 3 brothers and 3 feisty females! - and I'm finding that several songs are overlapping between the books.

Those songs - like Elvis' A Little Less Conversation (a song that always reminds me of Las Vegas) and Dierks Bentley's Sounds of Summer (a song I'm slightly obsessed with right now - fit the overall 'brother/family' theme of the series, and they also fit the books' settings (Las Vegas). But, each book definitely has its own feel.

Here are a few of the songs that are specific to What the Heiress Wants, the second book in the series:

Tim McGraw ~ She's My Kind of Rain (this is Connor's theme - he never thought he'd fall in love, but Miranda makes him re-think that stance!)
Sade ~ The Sweetest Taboo (this is Miranda's theme because she's failed to separate her personal and professional lives before...and lost...but she can't resist Connor)
Shania Twain ~ She's Not Just a Pretty Face
Jake Owen ~ American Country Love Song (the love theme for Connor and Miranda)
Maroon 5 ~ Maps
A Thousand Horses ~ Smoke
Dierks Bentley ~ Say You Do
Chase Daniels ~ Gonna Wanna Tonight

Ooh, and here's a peek at the video for Dierks' Say You Do (isn't is perfect for a romance novel?):

What type of music takes you to your happy place?

Kristina Knight's latest contemporary romance, What the Heiress Wants, is available now, plus you can pick up the first book, What the Bachelor Gets, for only $0.99 for a limited time. 

The Billionaire Cowboys trilogy by best-selling author Kristina Knight continues with What the Heiress Wants.

Denver publishing heiress Miranda Clayton craves more from life than society parties and shopping sprees, but her tycoon father refuses to take her seriously. Her solution? Beat him at his own game by going to work for his top competitor, Connor Reeves, in Las Vegas.

Connor isn't fooled by Miranda's new plan for a second. He knows exactly who she is; what he doesn't know is why she's pulling him into her games. After their first meeting, Connor knows what he wants - Miranda in his bed! But the more he's around his new vice president, the more he wants something deeper than a short-term fling. The question is does the lady want Connor - or his business?
