When jazz pianist Pete Cochrane looked up from the keyboard into Lisa Sinclair's smoky, almond-shaped eyes, he missed a beat -- or his heart did. Captivated by the exquisite honey-blonde whose lips were the pale pink of a seashell, he began to play Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady"... and mesmerized the elegant goddess. Stunned by the potent appeal of this musical James Bond who caressed the keys the way a woman was meant to be caressed, Lisa vowed she wasn't looking for a fling with a wandering minstrel and resisted the haunting power of his playing -- and the heart-stopping urgency in his embrace. At first Pete had thought her untouchable, a woman whose glamorous business in the South of France put her out of his reach, but Lisa was warm, responsive, ready to explode with sensual hunger, yet needed time to reveal herself to him. Could these two vagabond lovers become one with the wind and join the music of their lives?
