Published by wikkidsexycool
With the 60’s coming to a close, Simone Westwood Burr is a nineteen year old superstar dubbed the “Siren of Soul” with her funky, cutting edge music. Now married to the ultimate bad boy of Southern Rock, she tries to juggle a career and being a new mother, all while her troubled husband Johnny Burr deals with his inner demons.
Johnny has the swagger and sex appeal that could launch him straight to the top of the country charts, but an assailant from his past has triggered memories that put his career in jeopardy. Overseas, Eli has re-invented himself as an actor in several Italian Spaghetti westerns. Widening his female fan base, he plots his next career move and return to America, but only if he can escape a controlling director with a fetish for collecting pretty young things, like him. In a last ditch effort to escape, Eli must call in a favor from an old lover, who’s now the head of a crime syndicate and none too pleased with having their former relationship revisited.
As Simone, Eli and Johnny face adulthood and the trappings of stardom, the 70’s prove to be just as challenging and as turbulent for them and their still segregated hometown. ©

omething wasn’t right.Although the guests mingling in the salon of top country singer Dory Cartwright’s palatialhome were too plastered to notice, Simone Westwood Burr felt it, and she could see it. But then,why would this mostly white, wealthy crowd even care when the black waiters startedwhispering among themselves, many of them pointing her way? Hiding in a corner she’d stakedout earlier in the evening, resting her swollen feet and her growing belly, Simone had to admitDory’s home put all others to shame. The winding staircase was a dead ringer for the one in

, complete with plush, velvet runners. Confederate memorabilia greetedSimone’s wandering gaze no matter where she looked, from the decorated rebel general withwhiskers as distinguished as his uniform, scowling down at her on a far wall, to the numerous busts on pedestals and Civil War muskets and swords decorating the living room. There waseven a full replica of a Confederate uniform on a headless dummy, as well as the flag Old Glorydraped in welcome over the pillared entryway. She’d overhead a few partygoers say that Dory’scollection was the finest in all the south.“Ma’am?”Simone sat up, wondering if she’d fallen asleep. She gave the waiter a smile but he was all business, taking away her glass in workman-like fashion, wiping down the table where her coaster had been, reserving his brightest smile for the few people who looked over at them. Andhe had light eyes. They were so light she could swear they were blue. It was such a shock shewondered if it was possible that the child she carried could have blue eyes, just like his or her Uncle Eli. When the waiter bent down to flick at an imaginary crumb on the floor, he whispered,“Miss Dory sent me to fetch you, so that you can be with your husband.”They traded stares. With her heart pounding so hard, she swore he could hear it. “Johnny. . .he’s-he’s okay?”Someone walked by and the waiter straightened up, the intrusion making him give a practiced, patented smile. “Hello, nice to see you again sir. Can I get you anything?”
