About this ebook

Enjoy this steamy cowboy series by USA Today Bestselling small-town romance author Erin Wright…

Sometimes, the notes sound all wrong…

Mega-country music star, Zane Risley, appeared to have everything...until a car accident took his wife and crippled his son, Skyler.

Now he's lost. He's looking for any way to get back to the music, and to get his son to stop being so damn angry all the time. The way Zane figures it, a therapeutic horse ranch in Idaho is exactly what Skyler needs.

Feisty and strong have always seen her through…

Louisa doesn't take shit off anyone, including the kid of some Nashville star who’s just landed on her client list. Nursing is her passion, and she can help heal Skyler's broken body, if only he would let her. He's fighting her every step of the way, though, and his deliciously attractive yet broody-as-hell father certainly isn't helping matters.

The strength is in the melody…

Putting Skyler first, Zane and Louisa have to decide if two people from opposite sides of the track can make love work in a small town. Healing hearts is one thing, but an instant family is quite another...

Strummin’ Up Love is the first novel in the Musicians of Long Valley Romance series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. For fans of Julie Capulet, Nicole Fribourg, or Olivia Reign, this is a HOT romantic story with a guaranteed happily ever after. It does have some strong language and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

With layers upon layers of pain, guilt, and remorse, this romance takes one on a roller coaster of emotions as Zane firstly loses his wife and then finds himself having to deal with his son's paralysis and violent outbreaks of temper. Having found a horse therapy camp where Dr Whitaker has had good results, Zane removes both himself and his angry son to the small Idaho town of Sawyer, where the residents are just people waiting to become family. After another failed attempt at keeping an in-house nurse, Zane employs Louisa in a last-ditch attempt to get the help he needs. Skyler has a mean streak but doesn't take into account Louisa's younger siblings who have been her training ground for dealing with pranksters. The plot of this novel is emotional and painful, pulling the reader into the lives of the characters and making one feel their deepest feelings. All of the characters have flaws, but they are all real people dealing with the fallout of real problems. I found myself falling in love with Zane and wanting to cheer Louisa on as she makes a stand and refuses to accept the easy way out of dealing with problems. I was also delighted to meet up with the Miller family once again and the lives of the people in Sawyer. Although this book forms a part of an ongoing series, it is nevertheless a standalone and comes to a happy and well thought out conclusion. I received a copy of this novel as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

Zane Risley, a country western singer, rapped on the bathroom door to hurry his wife, Tamara, along. He absolutely did not want to be late for the CMAs but it seemed inevitable now! She had been in there for hours already, fussing with her hair and makeup. He would gladly leave without her, but the gossip rags would go wild over that. They finally got into the limo and started the trip as the snow fell. But as his son, Skylar, excitedly explored the limo, they were involved in a bad accident and Tamara was killed. Louisa Vargas was living back home in her mom’s small house with her ton of siblings. Living with Matthew had been what she wanted – even though she was only deceiving herself. Her mom told her to call her Aunt Carmelita, which was unusual since they didn’t see her often. She wanted to tell Louisa about a 12-year-old boy who ended up a paraplegic from a car accident 18 months ago. Zane needed someone to help take care of his son for the three summer months he was attending Dr. Whitaker’s horse therapy camp. Since Louisa was an RN who had specialized in spinal injuries, she would be perfect for the job. The unit she’d worked in was one of the premier spinal cord injury units in the US with people flying to Salt Lake to be treated there, so she was definitely the right person to help. Skylar has not been the perfect patient. His father, who had been on tours with his successful music career had not really developed a deep relationship with his son. He loved him, but he didn’t know how to be a dad and turned his son over to others to care for his needs. So Skylar pulls pranks on his caregivers until none want to take the job. When Louisa arrives, she is exactly what both Skylar and Zane need. She handles his pranks as only a woman who grew up in a loving family with a ton of siblings can – no screaming or yelling, just a quiet handling of the issues with fairness and love. Skylar begins to trust her as she approaches everything with a true desire to help and inspires him to want to try harder. She also sees Zane’s pain and guilt and what it has done to him, and she helps him to see what he has been doing to himself. Will Louisa’s loving touch heal Zane and Skylar? Will she allow herself to be drawn into their lives since she has become so important to them both? Is there a HEA for this beautiful woman and the two males she has come to love? This is such a beautiful, loving story about friendship, trust, loyalty, and healing. The characters are simply amazing, the kind of good people everyone should have in their lives. The story line is outstanding, providing hope and love and the empowerment to reach out for what you need to achieve! Immerse yourself in this amazing book – it will touch your heart in the best way possible.

This is the first book in the Musicians of Long Valley Series and is a great start to the series. Well written with strong characters and an engaging plot. A county western music romance that will have your Kindle humming. A great book that was hard to put down once I began. Zane was down on life and love since a wreck took his wife's life and left his young son a paraplegic. Tamara, a gorgeous nanny brought life back to all of them. The chemistry between them was electric and she brought so much compassion, encouragement and empathy to his son. A beautiful story that was well-written and a joy to read. The characters are well-developed and likable and the storyline is engaging.
