Tessa Branigan, the heroine of Rock Star Kisses, has been through much heartache and I think it's time she found her happily-ever-after. She also needs to overcome her complex about her weight and see herself for the beautiful, caring, and compassionate woman that she is.
It seems that most of the books in this series have had more than one romance in the storyline, and this book is no exception. When Freckles entered the scene, I knew I had to follow the same pattern. And what a kick she is! I'll not give a spoiler, but I will say that her hero is about to have his world turned upside down.
I tried to bring many of the characters from past books into this one, which proved challenging at times. I calculated that the story time lapse between the epilogue in Dream Kisses and the beginning of Rock Star Kisses is about twenty years. The actual years it has taken to bring this story from concept to book six, is about five.
Dovie hasn't lived a perfect life like handsome cowboy, Toby. In fact, she has major physical challenges that have kept men away from her. However, her greatest challenge will be opening her heart to a man who loves her unconditionally.
Justin Barnes left Hope Falls ten years ago, in the dead of night, and didn't think he'd ever set foot there again. That was just fine with him, except for one little complication: Amanda Jacobs. He had fallen in love with her unruly blonde curls and sparkling sapphire eyes, but she had been a teenager then, five years younger than he - too young for him to act on his attraction. Still, he'd missed her every single day of those ten years. When Justin receives a phone call that his former mentor has passed away, he knows he has to return to Hope Falls. Justin just has one question - will the girl that once adored him have grown into a woman that can't stand him? Or will she still be the only thing in the world that feels like home?
**Author's Note: Each Hope Falls full-length novel can be read as a stand-alone**
Lilah Parker yearns for her family, but in her infrequent letters to her sister Hallie, she has lied about her occupation.

However, fate has other plans for these mismatched lovers as they travel from New Orleans to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Oh, and along the way, Lilah gets kidnapped by bandits.
The book can be read as a standalone.
