Jealousy. Betrayal. Family secrets.

Appearances are everything in my family. We are the Strongs. Fame is our birthright. Music flows through our veins in a continuous harmony. Flaws are unacceptable.

When my parents got a good look at the freak they’d created, I was hidden away, my existence wiped out.

Until they discovered my secret.

Now I had something they wanted. 

Taking it from me didn’t faze them. They believed they were entitled.

I was just a boy, unable to fight back.

So I did the only thing I could.

I vanished.

That was seven years ago.

Now they are back, and they want something from me again.

They send the sexy and oh-so-tempting Mia Bennett to persuade me, and I’m helpless to resist her.

Mia seems innocent in my family feud, but is she really?

I can’t be sure.

All I know is she makes me feel alive again. She gives me the courage to just be me. She’s the new inspiration behind my music, my heart’s own melody.

But something dark and twisted lurks close to home, and leaves me questioning who is friend and who is foe.

Now I am forced to make a decision that could well break me.

How far am I willing to go for the woman I love?

EXCERPT:
How was I supposed to get close enough to the Reclusive Songwriter to snap his picture? 

Gathering up my bag, I followed the fence line back through the trees toward the front of the property. Finding a spot that gave me a good view of the front of the house, I settled down to wait, hoping he came out the front this time. 

An hour passed. 

Two. 

I tried to get comfortable on the hard ground, reading on my Kindle and glancing up at the house every once in a while. But the man was indeed a recluse. 

I didn’t know what to do. Desperation clawed at me. Should I go back to the front gate and ring the buzzer again, and keep ringing it until the man agreed to speak to me? Right. That was only going to get me arrested. 

I eyed the nearest “no trespassing” sign mounted on the fence about ten feet away. With all the surveillance cameras, he had to know I was out here. I was probably lucky the guy hadn’t had me arrested yet. 

Another hour passed. 

The sun was disappearing over the horizon now, darkness settling in. It didn’t look like I was going to be successful today. 

With a heavy sigh, I gathered up my bag and rose to my feet, deciding to call it a day. 

My skin prickled as something moved on the other side the fence. 

I spun around, my heart smacking into my ribs. 

The heavily-treed yard now deep in shadows, it took a moment for my eyes to take in what had appeared before me. Even then, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was looking at in the low light. He stood as still as the tree trunks surrounding him. 

My hand flew to my throat, my eyes widening. 

Gasping, I stumbled back, tripping over my own feet and falling into the underbrush, my bag landing beside me. 

I tilted my head back, unable to tear my gaze away.

Ohmigod. Ohmigod. 

Oh. My. God.

Sasquatch was real

And I was looking at him right now.

    1. Deb Smith, that's a really hard question to answer. All I can say is inspiration is everywhere and I never know when it will strike. :-)
