New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels is back with a beautiful, bittersweet tale of two lonely people who find heart-healing love, only to be torn from each other's arms. For everyone who loved Dear Emily, here is another poignant Fern Michaels novels to savor--a story of love, grief, passion, renewal--and incredible second chances.
A brilliant career and loving friends weren't enough to heal Dr. Sara Killian's aching heart. For brief, magical moment, world famous rock star Dallas Lord was part of her life.
Then he was suddenly and tragically taken away.
But before he disappeared, Dallas gave Sara a priceless gift--a beautiful love song written just for her. It's a legacy that will take Sara places she'd never dreamed of--into intrigue, betrayal and deadly danger. And, when she meets Adam Lord, Dallas's older brother, she will find herself torn--between Adam, the most attractive and complicated man she'd ever known, and Dallas, the man her heart won't let her forget...
Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines a biography this way: A biography is the written history of a person's life. Fern Michaels isn't a person. Fern Michaels is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I was born because according to him I was `a dinky little thing' weighing in at four and a half pounds. However, I answer to Fern since people are more comfortable with a name they can pronounce.
I've been telling stories and scribbling for twenty-five years. I hope I can continue for another twenty-five years. It wasn't easy during some of those years. As I said, I had to persevere. My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot. She said when God is good to you, you have to give back. For a while I didn't know how to do that. When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels Foundation. The foundation allows me to grant four year scholarships to needy, deserving students. I then went a step further and opened pre-school and day care centers with affordable rates for single moms who are having a hard time of it. Doing Fern Michaels allows me to do this and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for being so good to me. I don't know what I'm the most proud of, the books I write, the scholarships, the pre-schools or the fact that I put my kids through college on my own with no help from anyone. Probably the latter because when all else is said and done, the only thing that matters is family.
Is Fern Michaels a great writer. No. She is however, one hell of a story teller. When people ask me what I do, I say, "I scribble and tell stories." It's a great way to make a living. The Dutch have a saying, `If you can't whistle on your way to work, you don't belong in that job.' I whistle all day long.read more

Dallas Lord, a 38-year-old rock star asks Sara Killian, M.D., 39, to marry him (perhaps for the wrong reasons), and as a gift, he writes her a song. Then, having supposedly died in a plane crash, Dallas chooses to drop out of sight in order to gain new perspective on his sense of his life and himself (he's tortured by undiagnosed dyslexia). In his absence, a bad-girl backup singer claims rights to the song and attempts to murder Sara. After a brief attraction to Adam Lord, Dallas's older brother/manager, Sara is left to flounder in a midlife crisis as the brothers reunite, neither willing to admit their feelings for her. There's plenty of potential hereromantic story line, dynamic conflictbut Michaels's (Vegas Heat) latest is weakened by a poorly represented locale, abrupt transitions and the hero's maudlin motivations. Michaels is aiming for the heartstrings here, but she manages to hit only a few chords. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
