Who knew the author of "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen" could write such provocative, sultry romance?! The Harrison Duet, each stand-alone, full-length novels by bestselling author, Syrie James, linked by realistic characterization of strong personalities, kept me turning pages well into the wee hours of the morning. Two nights in a row! Songbird, Book 1: "Songbird" hits all the right notes with this lyrical, poignant love story. 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. 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." Despite Desiree's 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. But 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? Propositions: Book 2: I loved, loved, loved this perfectly crafted, lush, love story. Ideal read to curl up with these bleak winter days and escape! This thoughtful yet steamy romance will have you believing there can be love at first sight--and like one of our heroes says, "When you know, you know." 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 thick, 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 blooded 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? Let me be the first to petition for Syrie James to continue with this series-- after all, the Harrison clan has at least four more sisters, parents and grandparents --she could tell their stories! (And the surprise at the end of Book 2, further links the two novels together.) Suffering from the mid-winter blues? The Harrison Duet by Syrie James is a great cure-- grab your favorite cuppa and settle in. I couldn't put them down! Bonus Material: "Jane Austen's Nightmare"is a clever short story originally featured in Laurel Ann Nattress's anthology entitled "Jane Austen Made Me Do It." While sleeping, our dear Jane is beset with characters from her novels, all with complaints on how she has represented their person. I particularly delighted in how the dream inspires her to write "Persuasion".
