Rocker Leo needs a break. From the band, roadies, everything related to his present life. Wandering the streets of Vienna, he chances upon a poster that just might change his life. Andre Revele, renowned violinist, and Leo's ex-lover, is performing in the city. It's been years since Leo slipped out of Andre's life, but he's never forgotten their passionate love of music and each other.
Andre is shocked when Leo shows up backstage after his performance. He is angry, but he can't walk away. Against his better judgment, he invites Leo to his hotel for a drink. Not sure what he wants from Leo, he knows what his body wants. A night of passionate sex leads to another, until he's lost his heart to Leo again.
When Andre finds his trust in Leo tested, Leo must prove his loyalty by using their one common passion – music – to bind their hearts.

Viki Lyn weaves a wonderful story of past love, regrets, misunderstandings and lover's tiffs, interspersed with steamy scenes of love making and pure unbridled lust.
Leo Hamil is wandering the streets of Vienna on his way back to his hotel when he spots a poster of his ex-lover, Andre Revele, on the wall. Andre, a world famous violinist, is in town for a concert. Leo just has to see him so he visits Andre in his dressing room after the concert. He walked out on Andrew ten years ago but his desire for the man burns just as bright as when they were together. Leo is part of a band called Fourth Counterpoint, a rock band where he uses his classical training to write and perform great music.
From the time Andre invites the flamboyant and vibrant Leo back to his hotel room to everything that leads up to these two men rekindling their relationship, the story itself is like a symphony of notes played out in the wonderful and evocative background of the music world, both men so different in their outlooks and yet so much the same in everything that counts.
Of course, there's always the one person who tries to spoil everything for the lovers, and this takes the form of Andre's manager, Steven, who does what he can to drive a wedge of suspicion and hurt between the two men.
I just loved the ending. It bought a tear to my eye, a lump to my throat that a man would go to such lengths to tell the man he loved just how much he loved him. I'm not going to elaborate on this, you'll have to read the book and find out for yourself.
I really enjoyed this book and I'll be reading more books by this author.

In LOVER'S TRILL, Andre and Leo try for a second chance after years apart.
Andre and Leo were lovers years ago. Leo left Andre with nothing more than a note, but now he's wondering if he made a mistake and wanted to try again.
Andre was shocked to find Leo backstage at one of his shows. Of course he was! His boyfriend just left him one day, without an explanation. And here he comes thinking he can just have Andre back? Um, no.
Well... um, yes. That's kind of what happened, actually. Andre wasn't completely trusting of Leo (for good reason), but they did jump right into bed together. Then, that was followed by a really predictable and obvious misunderstanding that left a bad taste.
Neither character really stood out to me and I can't say I sympathized with them and their attempt at a second chance. I never felt their chemistry or their deep need to get back together.
This novella had some nice moments, but overall fell a bit flat for me.
