The rhythm of love Lina Smith-Todd is a winning bid away from owning a piece of musical history. The auction heats up when she discovers that her chief competition for a piano owned by Thelonious Monk is the man who once shared her bed. But the priceless baby grand isn't all that the seductive, supremely confident musician intends to possess. Rashad MacRae wants a second chance to be with Lina. Rashad's passion for music was inspired by the legendary Monk. But if walking away with the prize means losing his shot at a future with Lina, he's ready to concede defeat. To entice her back into his arms, Rashad has to find a way to regain the self-sufficient attorney's trust. And now a family revelation could cost him everything. Can doubt be swept away by the promise of an everlasting love song they both know by heart?
I am on a roll! I read Every Beat of My Heart by Kianna Alexander on the same Sunday afternoon as His Loving Caress and Cappuccino Kisses. I need to reward myself more often when I have productive Sundays like that last one. Obviously my form of rewards includes a book (or 3) haha.
These two dated briefly but due to Lina’s trust issues from her previous marriage and Rashad’s reluctance to bare his soul within the first five minutes (ok I’m exaggerating, it was more like a couple of months), these two ended. Rashad still wants her and seeing her at the auction house for the piano seems like a strike of good luck on his end. To get her back though and show her that his love for her is true and worth letting go of his mistrust, he may need to give up the priceless piano he so desperately wants.
