In glittery 1980’s Los Angeles, once-famous Broadway lyricist Beau Kellogg is disillusioned, unhappily married and yearning for one last musical hit, while he writes advertising jingles for quick money. Meanwhile, idealistic young singer, Amanda Harary, works a demanding day job at a charming New York hotel.
They weren’t looking for each other… but what they find together is a once-in-a-lifetime understanding, impossible joy and piercing heartache… until they learn that some connections, however improbable, are meant to last forever.
STEALING FIRE is a story for romantics everywhere, who believe in the transformative power of love.
Review: This is not your average romance/love story. Set across the backdrop of the music industry in the 1980’s with all of its enticing charms, dreams and troubles, the two main characters, Beau and Amanda are extremely well developed.
I have to admit that I worried about the title of this book being one that seems rather too popular. My worry was completely unfounded given it perfectly suits the type of relationship That develops between Beau and Amanda as their story unravels.
The book is extremely well written and I could in no way fault the structure and cohesivity of the story. However the story didn’t capture me like, Forward To Camelot… Another of Susan’s books. Hence the four stars.
