Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the
"Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in
love with. It's our great pleasure to present Terri Osburn.
I write contemporary romance novels with heart and humor, typically in a small
town setting. But my newest release, RISING STAR available Sept
12th, is set in the gritty and glittering world of the Nashville country music
scene, and features a spotlight-reluctant country radio DJ falling for an up and
coming country singer.
I’ve been a romance reader for more than three decades and can’t believe this is
how I get to make my living. I’m a northerner transplanted to the south more
than twenty years ago and will stay here, far from extended winters. I hate to
be cold! Last year I moved back to Nashville, which is truly the city of my
heart. One early reviewer of RISING STAR said I wrote a love letter to Nashville
and country music. Though that wasn’t my intention when I started the book, I
love the sentiment and hope readers will not only enjoy the love story between
Charley and Dylan, but maybe fall so in love with the setting that they just
have to pay Music City a visit.
What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:
A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing
what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley
puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger
in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself
one night of no-strings fun.
But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy,
and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label
books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he
woke up alone, and when he can see her again.
With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their
fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he
also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their
dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the
