Listen To Your Heart

A brilliant career and loving friends weren't enough to heal Dr. Sara Killian's heart. For a brief, magical moment, worldwide pop sensation Dallas Lord was a part of her life. Then he was suddenly and tragically taken away.

But before he disappeared, Dallas gave Sara a precious gift—a beautiful love song written just for her. It's a legacy that will take Sara places she's never dreamed of—into intrigue, betrayal and deadly danger. And, when she meets Adam Lord, Dallas's older brother, she will find herself torn—between Adam, the most attractive and complicated man she's ever known, and Dallas, the man her heart won't forget. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dallas Lord, a 38-year-old rock star asks Sara Killian, M.D., 39, to marry him (perhaps for the wrong reasons), and as a gift, he writes her a song. Then, having supposedly died in a plane crash, Dallas chooses to drop out of sight in order to gain new perspective on his sense of his life and himself (he's tortured by undiagnosed dyslexia). In his absence, a bad-girl backup singer claims rights to the song and attempts to murder Sara. After a brief attraction to Adam Lord, Dallas's older brother/manager, Sara is left to flounder in a midlife crisis as the brothers reunite, neither willing to admit their feelings for her. There's plenty of potential hereromantic story line, dynamic conflictbut Michaels's (Vegas Heat) latest is weakened by a poorly represented locale, abrupt transitions and the hero's maudlin motivations. Michaels is aiming for the heartstrings here, but she manages to hit only a few chords. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Dr. Sara Killian has a brilliant career in the ER, but approaching middle age sets her biological clock to tolling. One evening while she is on duty, she meets the famous Dallas Lord, a rock star la Bruce Springsteen, when he brings in one of his band members who has succumbed to a heart attack on stage. Dallas is a very gifted musician, but he has believed from early childhood that he is "slow," even "retarded." His older brother, Adam Lord, is a shadowy figure who runs the business end of Dallas's career. Dallas and Sara are drawn to each other and, in a very short time, agree to marry for all the wrong reasons. He writes a special song for his fianc e, the Sara's Song of the title, and he up and dies! Or does he? This is a funny, tender, sweet romance, with well-drawn characters and an interesting, twisty plot. The listener is simply compelled to find out how the plot resolves itself and to determine which of the fascinating heroes winds up with Sara. There is something here for all romance lovers, whether you go for alpha males or the teddy bear type. Jennifer Wydra is a very good reader, and this is a fine choice for all audiobook collections. Highly recommended.--Barbara Perkins, Irving P.L., TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Fern Michaels

Fern Michaels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Fool Me Once, Sweet Revenge, The Nosy Neighbor, Pretty Woman, and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy million copies of her books in print. Fern Michaels has built and funded several large day-care centers in her hometown, and is a passionate animal lover who has outfitted police dogs across the country with special bulletproof vests. She shares her home in South Carolina with her four dogs and a resident ghost named Mary Margaret.

Biography

Born Mary Ruth Kuczkir in Hastings, Pennsylvania, Fern Michaels was married and the mother of five before she embarked on her long, successful writing career – a career that began with something midway between a challenge and a command. When her youngest child went off to kindergarten, Michaels's husband imperiously ordered her (in just so many words) to get off her ass and get a job. Long years in the domestic trenches had left her short on marketable skills, so she decided trade off her lifelong love of reading and write a book. Just like that. The domineering, unsupportive husband is history. And Michaels has gone on to pen bestselling romance after bestselling romance. Just like that..

With typical modesty, Michaels does not claim to be a great writer; however, she admits proudly to being a born storyteller. Her bulging bookshelf proves she is all over the map, producing with equal facility hot historicals, lighthearted contemporary capers, adrenaline-laced thrillers, and heartwarming tales of family and friendship. She is especially adept at writing stories about women who prevail in hard times – a reflection, perhaps, of her own struggles in her marriage and early career.

Raised to believe that the fortunate in life have an obligation to give back, Michaels devotes a lot of time to philanthropic concerns. She has established a foundation that grants four-year scholarships to needy students and has set up pre-schools and daycare centers for single mothers. She is also an avid animal lover and has been known to own as many as five dogs at a time.

In 1993, Michaels picked up stakes and moved from her home in New Jersey to a 300-year-old plantation house in Charleston, South Carolina. She and the dogs share the house amicably with a friendly ghost whom Fern has dubbed Mary Margaret. In addition to stopping clocks and moving pillows from room to room, Mary Margaret has been known to occasionally leave flowers on Michaels's nightstand!

Good To Know

Michaels confesses in our interview: "I'm a junk food junkie and a chocoholic. My desk drawers have more junk food in them than paper and pens. I chomp and chew all day long. At night I get up and eat Marshmallow Fluff right out of the jar. In between eating, I write."

Her first "sort of, kind of job" was in market research. Michaels recounts the gig's low-point in our interview: "I had a partner and we were testing a new pressurized drain cleaner. All you had to do was put this can in the drain, squeeze and supposedly the drain would open right up. It did, all right.

"The whole wall collapsed, and stuff that was in there for a hundred years flew everywhere. The lady didn't tell us the drain backed up to her kitchen drain and disposal. The company didn't care that we smelled like a sewer or that our clothes were ruined. The lady got a new bathroom, and we both got fired."

Michaels reveals some of her sources of inspiration: "Inspiration comes from everywhere. The title for Finders Keepers came from a cartoon with two chipmunks that my grandson was watching. I had a title but no story. I finally came up with one to fit that wonderful title.

"Names for characters sometime come from television. I had a character named Metaxis which is odd to begin with. There is a news anchor on T.V. who has that same last name. Sometimes it will just be a word someone says in passing, something I read or saw. There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's almost like, okay, I need something here, stay alert and it will happen."
