  • Alexandra has the Stetson hat, now all she needs is the cowboy.  But with three days and over 50,000 faces to search, will she be able to find the man who stole her heart? 

    Ben still can’t believe he was foolish enough to let the beautiful thief walk away with his autographed cowboy hat.  If the heartbreaker dares to show up at Country Time again this year, he’ll not only be looking to get his hat back, but aiming for a little payback as well.

    (232 pages) Sensual

    EXCERPT:

    She stepped closer, filling the gap between them. “Ben, I want—” Her voice pleaded.

    He was drowning in the pools of her eyes and clenched his jaw shut as the hairs on the back of his neck stood up with the remembered comments from Julia. Yeah, you want me, but only because you hadn’t found anything better, right? Anger flared and he narrowed his eyes, adding aloud, “Your parents should have named you Jezebel.”

    “What?” Her eyebrows rose as confusion clouded her eyes. She blinked. “I know this looks bad, but I can explain.”

    He ignored the plea in her voice, put the hat on his head and swallowed. He took a step backward as she came forward.

    “Ben, please listen.” Her voice trembled. “I can explain. I want you—”

    He put his hands on her shoulders to prevent her from coming any closer, but as soon as his palms touched her skin, his hands started shaking. Something was wrong, different, he could see it in her eyes. And the way she looked? This couldn’t be the same angel his heart had longed for—had everyone else really seen what he couldn’t?

    “I don’t want to hear it. I already know,” he snapped, delving into his self-loathing and fortifying his resolve. “You stole my hat—a hat I was going to give my little brother.”

    “No, that’s not how it was.” Alex pressed against his hands and tried to move in closer, her eyes rimmed in tears.

    This review is from: The Perfect Country and Western Story
    When Alex fell in love with Ben a year earlier at the Country Time Music Fest, a family tragedy struck before they could exchange numbers. All she had to connect her to him was his prized autographed Stetson. Now, fast-forward to this year's fest. Will Alex be able to reconnect so she can return his hat and regain lost love? Will they be able to find each other in a crowd of 50,000?

    If you've never been to a music fest, read on. Christine drops you smack dab in the middle of one with romance leading the way. Think pick-up trucks, country music, Jell-O-shots, mud, sassy women, flirtin' men, and mishaps - you have The Perfect Country and Western Story.

      What a great read! Along with a wonderfully romantic story, there was a fun, underlying use of song references...and I don't just mean by title. I highly recommend this book to any romance lover...or country music lover for that matter!

        Alexandra found the love of her life at a music fest a year ago and lost him the same day. A family tragedy tore her away from the event while he'd gone to bring friends back to meet her. Leaving so unexpectedly, she took with her a Stetson autographed by Toby Keith that he'd temporarily had her hold. Guilt has weighed heavily on her as much as her longing to see him again at this year's event. If he comes...if she can find him in a crowd of 50,000...if he'll forgive her for leaving with his prized hat. So many ifs.
        Ben thought he'd found `The One' a year ago, but evidently he'd been wrong. He'd left her alone for a few minutes at the fest and when he'd returned, she was gone, along with a prized hat he'd intended to give to his disabled younger brother. And he hadn't even gotten her name. All he could hope for was that she'd come to this year's fest, with his hat. He was no longer interested in anything more from her.
        But love can be a complicated thing. It can twist a person's emotions around and make them be stubborn at times. And yet sometimes it finds a way to bring people back together. If you enjoy second chance at love stories as much as I do, then this book is for you.

          "I used to wonder if it was possible to write a believable ten-page love
          scene. Christine Columbus' The Perfect Country Western Story has a
          fourteen-pager written so well that I read every word. The scene occurs
          after pitch-perfect escalation of character conflict, plot twists, and
          eighty mile per hour winds, and ends with a twist that made me go back and
          read it again.

          One year earlier, Alex fell in love with Ben at Country Time music fest. A
          family tragedy tore her away before she could return his hat. Hoping Ben
          will come back this year, Alex brings his hat--and her dreams of restarting
          their romance. Ben didn't get this dream girl's name before she
          disappeared with his autographed Toby Keith cowboy hat, intended for his
          disabled younger brother. Now he is back to claim what is rightfully
          his--his hat and his pride.

          Christine's voice is engaging; her dialogue is believable. The Perfect
          Country Western Story would make a great Lifetime Channel movie."
