About An Indecent Longing:
Dorrie Haverstick is the one woman Ian Keller wants with a burning passion…and can’t have. Her connection to the man responsible for his father’s death makes her poison. That doesn’t make him want her any less.
Dorrie’s life is filled with secrets. Her beloved father runs the Russian crime family in Philadelphia but keeps her existance a secret. To acknowledge her would put her in constant danger and destroy her reputation as a physician. But his money funds her medical practice and she’s the on-call doctor for his men.
Decorated vet Ben Shaw knows his cousin Ian’s transition from the shadowy world of black ops into regular life has been difficult. But when he sees Ian’s interest in Dorrie, he sees Ian’s salvation in her eyes. There’s only one problem: Ben falls hard for the quiet, driven Dorrie.
Does Ben take Dorrie for himself? Or does he step back and wait for Ian to make his move? Either way, someone’s on the outside. Unless they can agree on one indecent solution…
Get Your Copy:
Ian and Ben are both jazz fans and that comes from my love of the music. I didn’t always appreciate jazz but, in my other life as a music critic, I cover the Berks Jazz Fest in Reading, Pennsylvania. I’ve gained a huge appreciation for standards and big band as well as smooth jazz.
So if you’re looking for a playlist for this book, start with the Great American Songbook: George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, sung by Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Sarah Vaughn and Nat “King” Cole.
“Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,”
“I Got Rhythm,”
“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”
“Cheek to Cheek”
If we’re talking big bands, these are a few goods ones:
Harry James’ “One O’Clock Jump”
Duke Ellington’s “It Don’t Mean A Think (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”
Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing”
And if we’re talking smooth jazz, you can’t go wrong with these:
Rick Braun’s “Tijuana Dance”
Chuck Loeb’s “Pocket Change”
Gerald Veasley’s “Love Letters”
