Rhythms, Passion and a Blue Tattoo (Paperback)
Riccardo Cordileon's Rhythms, Passion and a Blue Tattoo brings us to the music cities of Nashville and Memphis. We follow New Yorker Ryan Rolla and Southwesterner Maggie Matista from Music Row honky tonks to Beale Street blues bars. Steamy romance is mixed with somber secrets and shocking surprises as Ryan and Maggie meet at Legends, roam Printers Alley, dance at Tootsie's, frolic at Opryland Hotel, sightsee at Elvis's Graceland, feast at B.B. King's on Beale Street and fog the mirrors of the Peabody Hotel...their lives threatened in between by man and nature.
Cities like Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans have become the impetus for the witty and inviting storytelling woven into Cordileon's writing voice. In a romance-suspense genre dominated by female writers, the author's "everyman" narrators provide a unique male point of view about love, sex, guilt and the endless struggle for enduring relationships.
