Synopsis: Opera gets magical!
The Bel Homme Quartet saga continues in Book #2 with this mystical standalone story…
British member Jamie Stratton joined the world famous pop-opera singing group called “Bel Homme” for one reason only: money. It’s a year later now, and he’s rolling in it. But Jamie also possesses a spiritual side he can’t deny. He was raised by his gran at the most legendary place on earth: Stonehenge. She manages the gift shop there, and Jamie grew up in the flat over the store. His grandmother is an eccentric old bird who reads her Tarot cards and predicts true love is coming into Jamie’s life.
Jessica Evans is an American psychic medium from Illinois who’s always believed in astral protection—but then she’s assaulted by a man who does devastating harm to her family. While she lies near death in a coma, she dreams of a stranger who is her destiny. When she finally wakes up and needs a safe place to heal, a hometown tie to the American member of Bel Homme gives her access to the group’s secure compound in Royal Tunbridge Wells, England.
That’s when Fate steps in and brings Jamie and Jessie together. But in the midst of their timeless romance, Jamie must deal with a crisis involving his grandmother while Jessie is once again confronted by her brutal attacker—and Jamie is the only one who can save her.
Love or money: which would you choose? It’s Jamie’s turn to decide.
I’ve got to admit, I had my doubts about this one. Coming in mid-series can always be tricky but I gave it a shot and, boy, was I ever glad that I did! While there are admittedly a few minor details in need of editing, there is no doubt that Cindy Irish has created a heartwarming tale that will bring a smile to your lips and tears to your eyes. With so few stories that elicit an emotional response from their readers, Love’s Timeless Melody has definitely proven to be the exception. So, sit down a spell & read a while. You’ll be glad you did!
