As I mentioned on Sunday, I just sent my WiP, a contemporary romance tentatively titled Let Me Be Your Prince, off to my first reader.

High school teacher and single mother, Reese Ingram, has been friends with playboy actor, Jace Brodie, more than a decade. Over the years Reese became increasingly attracted to Jace, as an empty nest looms in front of her, Jace changes the rules to their friendship. But will Reese risk being just another notch in Jace’s bedpost to satisfy that attraction?

Today, I’m sharing a few of the songs that inspired it.

  • You by Switchfoot spoke to me when first trying to get inside Jace’s head.
  • All of the lyrics for Lost by Faith Hill really strike a cord with me when thinking of Reese and Jace’s story.

Is it obvious to you
When you walk into a room
Your face is all I see
And my heart races so fast
I never knew a rush to feel like that
Every time you’re touching me

I never did believe in anything
I couldn’t hold between my fingers
But the way you make me feel
It’s just so real the way it lingers

I get lost inside your stare
Lost when you’re not there
When everything I have doesn’t mean a thing
If it’s without you
If it’s a dream, don’t wake me up
I’ll scream if this isn’t love
If bein’ lost means never knowin’
How it feels without you
I wanna stay lost (forever)
(I wanna stay lost forever with you)

No, this feeling doesn’t end
It’s with me everywhere I am
Hope it never goes away
It’s like defying gravity
Losin’ all control and bein’ free
And I always wanna stay

I never thought that I’d let go
Long enough to fall for someone deeply
Who had the power to erase my fears
And find me so completely

I get lost inside your stare
Lost when you’re not there
When everything I have doesn’t mean a thing
If it’s without you
If it’s a dream, don’t wake me up
I’ll scream if this isn’t love
If bein’ lost means never knowin’
How it feels without you
I wanna stay lost (forever)
(I wanna stay lost forever with you)

Don’t tell me where we’re goin’
I don’t wanna know
I like the mystery (I like the mystery)
I can’t believe we’ve come this far
So far away from where we started off
You found me when I wasn’t lookin’
You found me

And now I’m lost inside your stare
Lost when you’re not there
And everything I have doesn’t mean a thing
If it’s without you
Without you
If it’s a dream
Don’t wake me up
I’ll scream if this isn’t love
If bein’ lost means never knowin’
How it feels without you
Yeah, if bein’ lost means never knowin’
How it feels without you
Oh, if bein’ lost means that I’m never
Gonna be without you
I wanna stay lost forever
I wanna stay lost forever with you

  • Everything about Secret by Seal grabbed me by the throat and wouldn’t let go.

What song is speaking to you? I’d love to hear from you πŸ™‚
