Title: Dissonance
Author: Shira Anthony
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Catt Ford


YOU’RE AN idiot. What the hell was he doing, agreeing to go home with a man he’d met just over two weeks before in a subway station?

Nothing you haven’t done before. Well, it wasn’t so different from the hookups he’d had in the past, was it? If you ignored the subway part of the equation.

They took the local to 34th Street, then exited near Penn Station. From there they walked about five blocks and then down a side street. At one point Galen offered Cam his jacket, but Cam flatly refused. Bad enough that he needed rescuing like some pathetic animal. He wasn’t yet so desperate that he’d take someone else’s coat.

“This is mine,” Galen said as he pointed to a silver Honda with New Jersey plates and rust that edged the doors and wheel wells. “Not much to look at,” he added with his now familiar shrug, “but she gets me where I need to go.”


Galen laughed, then ran a hand through his hair, appearing a bit uncomfortable. “Yeah. If she sinks, I go down with her.” He opened one of the rear doors and set his trumpet case inside. Cam caught a glimpse of a stack of sheet music on the backseat, although it was too dark to make out much. Galen unlocked the passenger side—no automatic locks here—then pressed his lips together and shook his head. Short white hair—fur, no doubt—covered the black vinyl seat.

“Sorry about that,” Galen said as he brushed it off. “I usually vacuum the car after Max and I go hiking, but we got back a little late today.”


Galen grinned. “My dog.”



British lord Cameron Sherrington has hit rock bottom. The love of his life, opera sensation Aiden Lind, is marrying another man, and Cam knows it’s his own fault for pushing Aiden away. Then someone tries to set him up and take away his family business. Facing arrest by US authorities on charges of money laundering and with no money to return to London, Cam decides to run. But with no money and no place to stay, it’s not exactly the Hollywood thriller he’d imagined.

When Cam hears Galen Rusk play in a lonely subway station, he’s intrigued. But his assumptions about Galen are all wrong, and their unusual relationship isn’t exactly what Cam bargained for. Add to that the nightmares that dog him nightly, and Cam’s world is shaken to its core. Cam figures he had it coming to him, that it’s all penance due on a life lived without honesty. He just never figured he might not be able to survive it.

Note: Blue Notes Series novels are standalone stories, and can be read in any order.

About the Author:

In her last incarnation, Shira was a professional opera singer, performing roles in such operas as “Tosca,” “i Pagliacci,” and “La Traviata,” among others. She’s given up TV for evenings spent with her laptop, and she never goes anywhere without a pile of unread M/M romance on her Kindle.

Shira is married with two children and two insane dogs, and when she’s not writing she is usually in a courtroom trying to make the world safer for children. When she’s not working, she can be found aboard a 36’ catamaran at the Carolina coast with her favorite sexy captain at the wheel.

  1. I’ve been holding back on reading the series because it sounds so good and I want to read it all in one sitting (in a one week span anway, lol). I’m really looking forward to reading them. Thank you for the giveaway!
