Check out this new cover for the upcoming "Her Heart's Surrender" by Allison Merritt. Talk about steamy!
Here's a little from Allison on her musical inspiration for this book.
"Music plays a big role when I write. If I can get quiet time to get some writing done, then I've got my Windows music player queued up. For Her Heart's Surrender, I was mostly into musical scores. Here's a little peek at some of the tunes that inspired the scenes in this Viking romance.
The Angel of Death from The Vikings score. Because, of course, Vikings. Although, I have to admit, I've never actually seen The Vikings. Only part of one episode. I'm waiting to get it on DVD so I can watch the last couple of seasons. This music is seriously tense, which works for a lot of the scenes in Her Heart's Surrender.
Courtyard Apocalypse from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Again, very tense music great for the battle between the Saxon army and the Vikings during the book.
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. Yeah, it was on one of those Twilight movie soundtracks. The one where they get married or something, right? Let's don't talk about that. Okay, it's a great song for writing a wedding scene, which I'll admit, I listened to while I wrote Hella and Ealasaid's wedding. More for him than for her, because...well, you'll have to read the book to find out why he feels so strongly about her.
Home from The Lone Ranger score. A huge favorite of mine for any historical romance. This song has seen me through lots of scenes, mostly the tender ones where there's some playful banter or a touching moment.
Game of Thrones score season one – Love this. There are plenty of tracks to listen to and match up while writing particular scenes. Since this show helped inspire my desire to write a Viking romance, I have to give the music credit."
