Ah music. It soothes the savage beast they say. It also give an author some great inspiration for certain aspects of their characters, sets the mood for a scene, and adds a vital touch of life to any book passage. As with most of my books, I have a playlist of tunes for The Good Green Earth, Colors of Love #3, that reflects the tone of the story as well as gives readers the songs that are mentioned throughout the story. Music is a big part of my process. It pops up all the time in my novels, just as it does in my real life. It’s hard to find me without tunes blaring out of my phone as I do chores, clean, drive, or tend to my authorly admin work.
For this book we’re going to have a lot one certain singer who one of our leading man just idolizes. I kind of do too!

The Good Green Earth
After the Syracuse Stallions clinch the championship, Nathan Zinkan, the renowned wild man of the AHL is arrested for a DUI. Again. When a no-nonsense judge adds a heavy dose of community service to an already stiff sentence, Nathan has to forget a summer of partying and slide on a pair of gardening gloves. His entire future now rides on how well he can behave while helping elderly urban gardeners tend to their tomatoes.
Watching local garden center owner Bran Cavanaugh working without his shirt is a benefit he wasn’t expecting. Pity Bran is also the one in charge of the community garden as well as keeping tabs on Nathan’s hours served. The two men are instantly at odds due to Nathan’s rebellious nature and Bran’s icy demeanor. Yet there’s no denying the attraction that begins to build between the hot-headed athlete and the cool as a cucumber master gardener.
Will their attraction grow into something deeper, or will it wither and die on the vine?
