One Man's Music
The music stirred her blood. As a child, Jenna Adams uses the lush, symphonic music and mesmerizing photograph of internationally renowned composer, Eric Ries, as a means to escape her parents' bitter divorce. Vocally gifted and emotionally neglected, Jenna turns eighteen and enrolls in a prestigious music conservatory where she becomes friends with Eric's piano virtuoso daughter. But which man touched her soul? A whirlwind of lust and energy, Eric Ries becomes a very real presence in Jenna's life, offering up seduction, fame, excitement, and most of all music. By her mid-twenties, Jenna's passion for music is thoroughly entwined with her obsession for Eric. When she meets manager Josh Kendal, she catches a glimpse of depth and sincerity, of kindness and dependability-and Jenna is torn between the temptations that have shaped her life and the kind of love she's never had.
