Nashville by Heart

(2016)
A novel by

 

"Sweet, wild, and a little bit crazy, with a loving heart that shines on every page."
Joanne Kennedy


A sweet, fairy tale romance from #1 Amazon Best Selling Author Tina Ann Forkner!

A small town girl, a chance at stardom... or a chance at love. Does she have to choose? Gillian Heart moved to Nashville to get a record deal - not end up on some playboy's arm. That's why she tells herself she can't get too personal with sexy music agent, Will Adams. Will makes her heart flutter, but he's also broken plenty of hearts in this city.

Will thinks Gillian has what it takes to make it in Nashville, but he can't help being wildly attracted to her in a way that has little to do with music. She inspires him to change his ways, but he's still wary about mixing business with pleasure. He did that once before and got burned.

But neither Will nor Gillian can deny the spark between them. As things heat up, Gillian dares to imagine a life with Will - even though she knows he's not a forever kind of guy. And then Will makes a move - bringing back memories of the father who abandoned her - that makes her question him and her whole life in Nashville.

Can Gillian get over the disappointments of the past and find her place in Nashville, and with Will?

Fans of sweet romances by Lucy Kevin and characters with a lot of heart found in books by Samantha Chase will enjoy this happily ever after story.

Author Interview

What was your inspiration for NASHVILLE BY HEART? My sister moved to Nashville when she was twenty something. She worked in the music industry, met her true love, and fell in love with Tennessee. She let me sit in on music recordings and took me to the best music spots in Nashville. A few years ago, we brainstormed the idea of romance novels set in Nashville featuring a Southern girl as the lead.

What is the novel's steam factor: sweet romance, sexy romance, or hot & steamy romance? As a women's fiction author, I'm afraid I'm never going to be considered hot & steamy except by my husband. NASHVILLE BY HEART is a love story that falls somewhere in the medium heat category.

How does setting play into this Southern romance? Nashville is this mecca for country music where you can order grits & fried chicken and visit antebellum homes while also enjoying a fast-paced urban lifestyle. At night, the down-home feel and the liveliness of show business converge, and that's what my heroine loves about Nashville. But it also overwhelms her, and she gets homesick for the small town where her roots run deep. She's trying to make it as a female musician, a girl with a guitar, but doesn't want to lose who she is.

Do you believe in happily ever after? Of course! That's why romance fiction is fun to read. We can focus on the romantic side of the relationship, and after the end we feel like the couple will be happy. It reminds us that we can find forever love and be happy too.

How is NASHVILLE BY HEART different from your other books? I mainly write women's fiction, and readers of THE REAL THING and WAKING UP JOY enjoy the drama and struggles of the characters I've created. NASHVILLE BY HEART is different - it's a fairy tale romance that takes place in the bustling music scene of Nashville. I'm hoping that romance readers who like happily ever after stories will enjoy my sweet romance story!

What do you enjoy reading? Lately I've been reading a lot of YA with my daughter. I also read a lot of book club fiction & women's fiction.
