Publisher's Summary

Out-of-work violinist Erica Timberly decides enough is enough. She leaves her abusive boyfriend and flees the big city, but then, her car breaks down in the middle of the night. 

Though wary of men, she accepts help from Dylan Haynes, a stranger driving by on the road, and soon recognizes him as the sexy former drummer of her favorite indie rock band. Maybe, just maybe, her run of bad luck is finally turning around. 

Music teacher Dylan Haynes knows Erica is in trouble, and her black eye is only the first clue. The stubborn yet vulnerable woman needs a friend, but he's determined to give her everything she deserves. 

Will Erica listen to the music in her heart and trust Dylan, or will her past always threaten her future?

A Great Listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. Amber Dalton has written a great romantic suspense filled with action and a fulfilling romance. The narrator's voice was perfect and enjoyable to listen to. She made the characters come alive. I highly recommend this audio book.

A visit to Deerbourne Inn

Lyrical Embrace is another story in the Deerbourne Inn series and I was glad to get the opportunity to listen to it. The small sleepy town of Willow Springs in Vermont sounds like a lovely place to live and given I’ve lived in the big city, I’m pretty sure I would enjoy the slower pace of life. The fact everyone knows everyone else might be annoying, but in the end I think I’d enjoy knowing all my neighbors.

Dylan Haynes grew up in Willow Springs and although he ventured out into the world for a while, he’s happily come home. When he picks up Erica Timberly on the side of the road where her car has broken down, they discuss country living.

“I’ve never been to Vermont until today. I gotta tell you, I’m not impressed.”
Dylan laughed. “Wait until morning. Once you see my little town, you’ll never want to leave. I left a while back, and although I enjoyed seeing a bit of the big, bad world, there’s no place like home.”
Erica scoffed at that. She couldn’t help herself.
“You don’t agree?” Dylan slowed the vehicle as he rounded a curve.
“No, I agree. For some people, home is heaven. For me, home means yelling, fighting, and people stabbing you in the back.”
“Is that what you’re running from?”
“Running?”
He shrugged, but tension suddenly filled the air. His voice gentled. “You have a black eye, Erica. Your travel bags are stuffed to the point of bulging.”

Pretty quickly Erica’s dilemma is laid bare – she’s running and with her car out of commission, and she’s stuck in Willow Springs. Good thing she’s got a friendly neighbor to show her around. Dylan is happy to play tour guide, soon discovering he likes Erica. She’s guarded, to be sure, but there’s also a spark he’s drawn to. When she discovers his true identity, she’s intrigued, not gobsmacked. He likes that because he doesn’t like to be reminded of where he’s come from. They are both musicians and their love of music draws them even closer together. In the end, though, it’s Erica’s past that catches up with her and she needs to draw on Dylan’s strength – physical and emotional.

The book is a romance so there is a happy ending, but man did Erica and Dylan have to go through a lot to get there. I enjoyed the story and am glad I listened to it. Georgia Allens narrated the book and she did a great job. She’s a new-to-me narrator and I definitely will listen to more of her books. This Daulton/Allens find was a good one.
