When Southern California radio deejay Desiree Germain hosts a contest on the air, she is immediately taken by the smooth, deeply masculine voice of caller number twelve, Kyle Harrison. Later that afternoon, the man behind the voice walks into her studio, and Desiree is instantly smitten.

Kyle Harrison is not only devastatingly handsome, he is a brilliant, extremely wealthy entrepreneur from Seattle who is used to getting what he wants. Desiree can't help her attraction to Kyle—and if the intense way he looks at her and keeps delaying his flight back to Seattle is any indication, it seems her feelings are more than reciprocated.

They embark on a thrilling, passionate love affair that plays havoc with the life Desiree has struggled so hard to carefully control. With a divorce under her belt and her career finally going places, she is concerned that their whirlwind romance is doomed to long-distance failure.

It might take a Maserati, dozens of red roses, and a lot of airplane tickets, but Kyle is determined to sweep Desiree off her feet and claim her as his own—forever. Can Kyle convince Desiree to risk her heart and her career for love?

"A wonderful book that I read into the early morning hours and left me with very pleasant dreams!" -Paulette's Papers

"I loved it! Desiree and Kyle had an instantaneous connection. The chemistry between them is intense and the love that develops is truly heartwarming. I adore stories that are inspired by or based upon music. Songbird is such a beautifully written, almost lyrically told story about two people overcoming their fears and the profound love they share for one another. I definitely recommend you check this book out!" -The Book Hookup



Dear Reader,

It is with great pleasure that I share with you this newly edited edition of my first published novel.

This story is especially meaningful to me because it was inspired in part by my relationship with the man I love. Just like Desiree and Kyle, Bill and I had a whirlwind courtship, lived in different cities, and were faced with the challenges of a long-distance relationship. I'll never forget how devastated I was each time he or I had to get on a plane and leave. But from the moment of our first meeting, we each recognized our missing other half. We've been married now for many wonderful years, and I am grateful for every minute.

I hope this story will touch your heart and make you smile!
