Rhythm of their hearts
Slick lines and sweet nothings have zero effect on ambitious real estate developer Julie Dominick. Her love rules have thankfully saved her from dealing with messy relationship complications. But since R & B superstar Dante Wilson hired her to open his new Malibu nightclub, he’s determined to add some pleasure to their business dealings. And Julie’s strategy to protect her heart may not stand up to his seductive appeal.
Growing up in a music dynasty, Dante enjoys all the female attention that comes with his fame. For the first time, he knows what it feels like to be brushed off by someone he’s falling for. When his usual moves fall flat, he has to show Julie the real man behind all the glitz and glamour. Will it be enough to convince Julie that it’s better to break the rules rather than risk losing love’s passionate melody?
If you have young kids you probably spend a lot of your television time watching cartoons and kids’ shows (it can’t just be me). Little did I know that a guest appearance by a group called Nuttin’ But Stringz on my kid’s favourite show would not only inspire me to create a Pandora station, but later a book. Dante Wilson is the hero in A Malibu Kind of Romance and an R & B superstar. He’s been in the music industry since he was thirteen, and now he want to try something new. I knew immediately the music he wanted to play would be similar to the music of Nuttin’ But Stringz, who play a blend of classical, hip-hop, jazz and R & B.
While you’re reading A Malibu Kind of Romance, if you have a hard time “hearing” the music, check out the group. Maybe you’ll get a little inspiration, too.
