Author Biography

Cindy started out writing radio commercials.

She now writes other bits of fiction - although creating romantic worlds and pretty rainbows actually feels more real than anything she ever produced on air.

Her writing style shatters all boundaries of the status quo: between the sexy and the sweet. The highbrow and the low.

In The Song That Seduced Paris by Cindy Irish, a French singer meets an American music teacher, and instead of learning pop music, they learn love, romance and sizzling passion. Gabriel Grenier is a successful celebrity in France. He has money, fame and everything he ever wished for. But that does not bring him true companionship. He is alone and wants something in his life that excites him. He wants something new. When Teddy Wilson, an American music kingpin, offers him a position in a group that will be a fusion of pop and opera, he jumps at the opportunity and accepts it.

Annie Morgan, an American music teacher, joins the “Bel Homme” team through her aunt. Still reeling after the death of her husband, she needs to get her life back and she takes this opportunity with big hopes. She did not anticipate the instant attraction she feels for the handsome French singer. He is big, bold and beautiful and she cannot help herself. Teddy warned them both about their attraction. They cannot start a relationship, not if they want to keep their jobs. But can they keep their hands off each other? Or will they keep their distance and just enjoy the music?

Cindy Irish brought us a beautiful romance in the form of The Song That Seduced Paris. Where most writers are concentrating on erotic scenes, Cindy made sure that there was a healthy dose of plot and a dash of charisma in her novel to make it stand out. It might look like a regular romance novel, but you will be surprised. I really liked this novel. I can’t wait for the others in the series. Five stars!

Thank you for my 5-STAR rating, Rabia Tanveer!

But, most of all, thank you for this line: "It might look like a regular romance novel, but you will be surprised."

You saw beyond the erotic pleasure and grasped the heart-saving bliss.

C'est parfait!

It's a steamy, feel-good contemporary romance that I will be reading again and again! This book absolutely deserves a standing ovation. Each and every character was fantastic, and this book set up the whole series quite nicely!

I was intrigued from the beginning! Even the first page is...well...ahem...let's just say I have never seen a book begin quite that way :) It was absolutely not what I expected this book to include, but again, I was VERY interested to see where the story went from there!

And it doesn't stop there! Not only is the love built up between Annie and Gabriel (and a certain other couple that shall remain nameless and you'll have to read to find out), but the love scenes are ON FIRE!!! Cindy includes that element of true love that makes these exchanges between Annie and Gabriel so endearing.

Annie might just be my favorite heroine of all time. She is no-nonsense, smart, VERY funny and yet sometimes, as with the rest of us, forgets to turn on her filter. Some of the things that come out of her mouth are absolutely priceless!

Gabriel is, bar none, THE most romantic hero I have ever read. Ladies, I think you will GLADLY ditch your current book-boyfriend for Gabriel! (I know I did!)

An element is included in this story (twice) that I usually don't like reading about; the deceased spouse. Cindy included and handled this aspect beautifully with such humility and respect that, and I felt, really added to the story. It also added to Gabriel's character with regard to the way he handled it.

I absolutely LOVED every single character in this book. I even found it hard to hate the "villain"! (The conflict was pretty low-stress, which fit in well with the tone of the story)

I am THRILLED that book 2 is out, and I can't wait to read Jamie's story!!!
