In this classic novel of love and loss from #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen, a delicate songbird discovers her true colors--with a little help from a charismatic billionaire intent on setting her free. Her dark eyes and haunting voice have earned gypsy-haired singer Sheena Reardon renown on both sides of the pond as "Ireland's Mournful Dove."

Now, at a stuffy New York cocktail party, she spots a friendly face in the crowd . . . and learns that it belongs to a ruggedly handsome, wickedly tempting stranger who knows her better than she knows herself. To oil magnate Rand Challon, Sheena is more than a carefully manipulated stage persona.

Out of the spotlight and under his sensual tutelage, Sheena learns to spread her wings. But Rand must leave it up to his reluctant lark whether to take flight . . . or find a home in his arms forever.
