In just a little over two weeks, Dreamspinner Press will release The Melody Thief, the second novel in the Blue Notes Series. (Yes, that’s me with the ear to ear grin!) Each Blue Notes Series novel is a standalone story that explores different aspects of relationships. For those of you who have read the original Blue Notes, you’ll know that book was about letting go of the past and opening yourself up to the possibilities of love. In Blue Notes, Jason Greene comes to terms with his attraction to other men, and realizes that success doesn’t necessarily ensure happiness.
The Melody Thief focuses on the importance of family and commitments, and what it means to be loved and to love someone in return. Cary Redding, a renowned classical cellist, is the melody thief—a man whose painful childhood has left him with nothing but his music. He lives his life without letting himself feel and dulls his pain with anonymous sex and alcohol.
Cary doesn’t mean to fall in love. He doesn’t want to. But when lawyer Antonio Bianchi saves Cary from muggers on a deserted Milan street, Cary finds himself falling hard. Then there’s a “little” complication— Antonio has a five year old son. Cary isn’t ready for a relationship, and he sure as hell isn’t ready for an instant family. But sometimes what you think you aren’t ready for is just what you need. I hope you’ll enjoy Cary’s journey of the heart as he learns to love and let himself be loved.
