Sandra Kitt, Author Arabesque $4.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7860-0024-1
Parker Harrison was a restless musical prodigy when he met Alexandra Morrow, a college freshman with dreams of becoming a famous opera singer. Then Parker leaves without a word, the she is distraught. Ten years later, when the two meet again by chance, Parker is an accomplished and renowned musician, dissatisfied with his empty life. Alexandra's singing career has been a struggle, as has her love life--until Parker forces her to question her goals and her heart. Christine, Alexandra's beautiful but self-absorbed younger sister, is an unconvincing obstacle for the two lovers, but Kitt more than makes up for this weakness. This auspicious launch of Pinnacle's new multiethnic Arabesque line features solid African American characters, unlike stereotypical romance figures who substitute lust for any real motivating substance.
