Sasha Summers kicks off her new Kings of Country series with Jace, a sexy contemporary romance that gives readers a glimpse behind the curtain of fame, fortune and country music.
Jace Black is an oilfield roughneck who won big on a national TV competition, granting him enough fame to open the door to the music scene. His cup continues to runneth over when he’s introduced to Krystal King, the June Carter of her famous family of country royalty. “Ashes of My Heart” is Krystal's most personal, most important song ever—and her people gave it to Jace and her twin sister, Emily, to record. At a critical professional juncture when it was supposed to be her time, Krystal not only has to let Emily steal the spotlight, but also deal with Jace. He’s big, he’s talented and probably worst of all, he’s handsome. He’s also crazy about Krystal. When an unexpected lineup change thrusts them together—and into in the national spotlight—Krystal jumps at the chance to claim her song, even if it means she has to spend more time with country music’s new golden boy.
Summers has crafted a compelling story with an interesting plot and relatable, incredibly likable characters. The music business is tough, regardless if it’s your first day or your 10th decade. Krystal is a second-generation singer and songwriter, and has spent her life surrounded by fame and fortune. It’s both a blessing and a curse, because her business is the family business, and her decisions are rarely her own. By contrast, Jace was thrown into the deep end as an overnight sensation, but rather than finding it difficult to keep his head above water, he’s able to stay faithful to his true self despite the glitz and glamour of his new life.
Just like her talented hero, Summers proves she is a rising star in this glitzy contemporary western.
