Rachel de Vineabout this book: Harry is a Dominant, who has had many casual relationships with submissive women, and is not looking for a permanent relationship – until he sees and hears a beautiful young woman singing in a club in London. The woman sang with a throaty and passionate voice that suggested a dissolute lifestyle, but had the face of an angel and a body that made grown men drool when they saw her sing. Harry fell head over heels for Pascale, and was determined that she would be his. Pascale, however, has had a difficult childhood with her mother's brutal lover, Gaston, and when Harry meets her, she is damaged by her past. Eventually Harry begins to break through the barrier that Pascale has erected around herself, but he is wary about dominating her, even though she seems to him to have submissive tendencies. He is afraid of digging up distressing images from her past.
This book offers a complex story that includes murder, suspense, and fear, as Pascale confronts the troubles of her past, but also includes love, passion and some hot and spicy sexual content too, between Harry and Pascale, as they seek to put Pascale's troubles behind them. The story will appeal to people who want a strong storyline, as well as a passionate love story, that will keep them captivated all the way through.
I love the cover, which was based on a stock photograph I found online, which provided the very image of the singer as I had envisaged her when writing the book. I chose the title Songbird because Pascale seemed to me like a fragile little bird, who was waiting to be set free so she could fly.
I have had some very encouraging reviews of the book, to date, including: "A well written story of intrigue and seduction" and "This is a riveting story that is full of suspense, mystery, murder, control, fear, and seeking peace and happiness for a future. The dialog is raw, emotional and honest", and "The descriptive dialogue is the classic word painting, and this author does it brilliantly. There is a story here with great characters and intriguing circumstances."
