Kimberly Rose Johnsonabout this book: Kayla is a hopeless romantic and co-owns a flower shop. She had hoped to meet the man of her dreams there, but didn't consider that most men who come into her shop already have a woman in their lives.
The day before Valentine's Day, Derek, the new UPS guy, walks into her shop, she is smitten, but there is more to Derek than she realizes. Can she look past his huge secret or will the past he is hiding come between them?
Derek is in town to take care of his mother who is having health issues, and he's hiding out from the paparazzi. He wants to leave his singing career, and fame behind, but when his past catches up to him, and Kayla finds out who he really is, his world tumbles out of control. Can he fix the mess his life has become and still have the girl, or will he loose everything?
This book was inspired by my dislike of Valentine's Day. I sat down at the computer to write on Valentines Day and couldn't get it out of my head how much I didn't like the day. I chewed on this for a little bit and realized there was a story there and Kayla was born. I love music. I went to college with a vocal scholarship and taught piano lessons for years. My love of music inspired Derek's character and much of the rest of the story.
A Valentine for Kayla would appeal to women ages 16 to 75 who enjoy a sweet romance. This book is a clean read that an avid reader could easily finish in an afternoon. It's a fun and easy read.
This book was written for Harlequin's Love Inspired, Heartsong Presents line. I submitted about a dozen title ideas and ultimately the editors had the final say. I'm not sure they even used one of my suggestions.:) Regarding the cover, I filled out a cover art facts sheet and gave three ideas with examples of how I envisioned the cover. I absolutely LOVE how this cover turned out.
