After popular southern California deejay, Desiree Germain, makes a thoughtless joke predicting a stock downturn of a soda company, she takes a call from a disgruntled listener, Kyle Harrison-- who happens to be the new owner of said soda company. To her surprise, Seattle businessman, Harrison later walks into her studio and he is not at all as she expected. "Where was the fat, balding business executive she envisioned, the man who smoked cigars and wore half a dozen diamond rings?" No, this man was overwhelmingly gorgeous. And he came to ask her to dinner! Who could resist such a rich, handsome, sexy and funny man willing to wine, dine and even pilot her away on amazing private airplane adventures? Warning: smolder alert. "His mouth came down on hers in a single expedient motion, the force of his lips matching the depth of passion in her voice. A moment later, they took a simultaneous, ragged breath, their eyes locked, glimmering with delight in the newness of what they had just found." Who knew the author of "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen" could write such provocative, sultry romance?!
Despite her struggle to stay in control of her emotions and precarious radio career, a sizzling affair heats up, threatening to throw her carefully composed life into a tailspin. "She felt tears start in the corner of her eyes and a rush of affection welled in her throat. Twice she'd told him to stop, forced him to leave when his desire for her was all too evident. Still, he was willing to call it off now if she was uncertain." Kyle is a powerful man who knows what he wants and is not opposed to making decisive plans without discussion or her input. The question is: how long will he excuse her hot, then cold responses? Does he have the patience for a long distance relationship? "...I don't want to be torn, day after day, between you and my work. I want to be together, live in the same house, share the same bed. I want to spend mornings and evenings with you, make love to you every night, and wake up beside you every morning. I want to make a home together, raise children together. I want a full-time partner... for life." And can strong-minded Desiree give up her hard won career that seems to have just taken flight, all in the name of love?
"Songbird" hits all the right notes with this lyrical, poignant love story. Syrie James' realistic characterization of two strong personalities and colorful description of the mid-1980s harmonized beautifully - and kept me turning pages well into the wee hours of the morning.
