2014 RITA Finalist - Best Historical Romance
Clara Becker is a supremely gifted composer--a talent of little to use to a woman in 1830s England. Her compositions only have worth when they are published under her brother's name, yet this deception barely enables them to scrape out a living in the poorest quarter of London.
Darien Reynard, the most celebrated musician in Europe, pursues success with a single-minded intensity. When he comes across Becker's compositions, he knows that this music will secure his place in history. Darien tracks the composer down and, with some difficulty, convinces the man to tour with him. Mr. Becker agrees, but with the most unusual condition that he bring along his sister...
Darien's unexpected desire for Clara jeopardizes the entire tour, but Clara must protect more than her heart. If he discovers her secret, her family's new found fortune - and their very reputation - will be destroyed.
Set against the glittering backdrop of 19th century musical celebrity, Sonata for a Scoundrel is the first in the Music of the Heart novels from USA Today bestselling author Anthea Lawson. The second, Mistress of Melody, is now available! amzn.com/B00OE9I6MC
