Deep Blue by Kathleen Duhamel
Deep Blue Trilogy - Book 1
Love is the most addicting drug of all...
“Barely-not-starving” Denver artist and cancer survivor Claire Martin has almost given up finding an older man with a youthful spirit when she meets charismatic New York soul singer Robert Silver of the legendary band Deep Blue. She soon learns that hero worship can be dangerous, especially when the object of her desire comes with a disturbing past.
Robert is smart and sexy with a self-deprecating sense of humor, but he’s also a man who has suffered from panic attacks, drug abuse, a well-publicized stint in rehab and the death of his wife, screenwriter Elaine Jordan. When his demons resurface on tour, jeopardizing his voice and the band’s future, Claire must decide if she’s willing to take the biggest risk of her life—betting her future on a troubled man.

“This delightful tale mixes romance, personal growth, humor, and issues. Will Claire’s self-doubts and Rob’s fatal flaws put an end to her dreams, unless she dares to fight for what Rob as well as she deserves? Authentic characters, from the central couple to friends and family, charming features of Denver life diverse as neighborhoods and art festivals, and tantalizing glimpses into the glitzy, high-pressure world of celebrity stud the story. The color blue holds a multitude of meanings. It can represent freedom, encourage trust or hope, signify sincerity. Then there’s the maxim “between the devil and the deep blue sea.” You’re caught in a dilemma, between two choices, neither of which is ideal. With Deep Blue, the devils surely are the personal demons all must wrestle in order to deserve their happy endings.” —Bonnie McCune, author of Falling Like a Rock
“Colorful and reminiscent of Danielle Steele and Nora Roberts.” —Ruta Sevo, author of White Bird
