Summary

An Immersive Story of Music, Struggle, and Starting Over from an Award-Winning Author 
 
Michael Sullivan is a talented lyricist and a decent guitarist, but since he was kicked out of his band (and his apartment), he's not sure he'll ever get a record deal. Living with his loser uncle in a beat-up trailer and working a dead-end job, Michael has little reason to hope for a better future. Until the invitation for a swanky New Year's Eve party shows up in the mailbox. It's for his uncle, with whom he shares his name, but his uncle is going out of town . . .  
 
On the effervescent night of December 31, 1989--as the Berlin Wall is coming down, the Soviet Union is inching toward democracy, and anything seems possible--Michael will cross paths with the accomplished and enigmatic young heir to a fading musical dynasty, forever altering both of their futures.  
 
Award-winning novelist Erin Bartels enchants with this story of two lonely souls who have exactly what the other one needs--if they could simply turn their focus from what is ending to what is just beginning.
Available since: 01/17/2023.

    Handsome, dashing and a close friend of the Prince of Wales, Lord ‘Buck’ Melburne has London’s Society ladies permanently swooning at his feet and so his nickname stuck with him.
     
    So, when Lord Melburne goes to his magnificent country seat at the urgent request of a young lady called ‘Clarinda Vernon’, a nearby neighbour of his, it turns out that she despises and hates him and so he is shocked and perplexed as this has never happened to him before.
     
    What could he possibly have done to offend her?
     
    He is even more shocked at Clarinda’s request – that he agrees to marry her, purely to indulge the last wish of her dying uncle. Once Sir Roderick Vernon has passed away Clarinda will, she assures him, release him from his promise.
     
    Despite himself Lord Melburne is really fascinated by this innocent yet feisty red-headed beauty and he is deeply concerned for her safety when he hears of sinister Satanic goings-on in the nearby caves orchestrated by someone who means Clarinda harm and even worse.
     
    When she finds herself prone on the sacrificial Altar amid a terrifyingly depraved Black Mass, it is for his Lordship to save her that she prays to God.
     
    And when at last her prayers are answered, she realises that her hatred has turned to love and that for her too, Buck Melburne really is irresistible!
