Overview

When freelance advertising artist Kelli Ann Harrison agrees to oversee the final phase of construction on her brother’s glamorous Lake Tahoe house, she intends to make a holiday out of it: lend her brother a helping hand and at the same time enjoy the area’s winter sports.

An unexpected encounter at a holiday mixer, however, leads to a job offer that throws Kelli’s plans into disarray. Grant Pembroke, founder of Pembroke Advertising, is in town to bid for the lucrative Cassera’s Casino account. Impressed by Kelli’s talent and artistic vision, Grant makes her a proposition that’s too exciting to refuse: team up with him to forge an ad campaign for the bid.

Kelli is determined to keep things professional, but that won’t be easy, considering the high-voltage charge that sizzles between them from the start. With his creative ingenuity and broad-shouldered, dark-haired good looks, Grant makes it very difficult for Kelli to concentrate on her work — especially when it becomes clear that his feelings for her go far beyond the workplace.

They make a wonderful team. But Grant is as headstrong as he is talented, and at times the two of them clash. Can business and pleasure mix? If Kelli and Grant play their cards right, can a whirlwind love affair last forever?

Written in 1986, Propositions, is the newly edited book two in The Harrison Duet series by best-selling author Syrie James. Kelli Ann Harrison, the sister of Kyle Harrison, our hero from book one, Songbird, is a Seattle freelance advertising artist who is supervising the last construction details of her brother’s Lake Tahoe luxury vacation home. Determined to add some fun in the mix while in this casino resort town, she literally runs into a tall, dark and handsome stranger.. “He stood just inches away, still gripping her arms with his head tilted down to hers, so that despite his height, she couldn’t help but stare directly into his eyes. They were a rich, vibrant blue, like the Tahoe sky, surrounded by think, dark lashes; quick intelligent eyes, which at this moment sparked with irritation. Despite this—for some inexplicable reason—she felt a sudden, wild fluttering inside her—a feeling of momentous, impending change. ‘Fate,’ she thought, and realized, too late, that she’d said it out loud.” Grant Pembroke, owner of a San Francisco advertising company, is in Tahoe to land a big casino account. When Fate interrupts, not only does he become awed by Kelli’s beauty and artistic talents but they both seem to have met one another’s intellectual and creative match! So of course what intelligent, hot bloodied man wouldn’t think they should pair up and work together on winning this casino campaign?! Kelli struggles to remain professional; how can she resist him, let alone concentrate on the work at hand? “She said she didn’t want this. She’d tried to resist. But she saw in his expression such heartfelt tenderness that it stripped away her defenses. She didn’t want to think, only wanted to feel.” As the deadline draws near, it seems they have fallen madly in-love. But is it love? Can it really be love after only a few days? Syrie James points out in the Author’s Foreword: “In some ways, reading the book is like stepping back in time, to an era before computers and cell phones took over the world and changed the way we do everything. The basics of the creative process, however, remains the same, as do the joys we experience in a new relationship, on the road to falling in love.” This poignant, steamy romance will have you believing there can be love at first site—and like our hero says, “When you know, you know.” I loved, loved, loved this perfectly crafted, lush, love story. Ideal read to curl up with these bleak winter days and escape! Let me be the first to petition for Syrie James to continue with this series-- the Harrison clan has at least four more sisters, parents and grandparents she could tell their stories!
