Here is New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen’s classic novel of unforgettable romance and unrelenting suspense–a ravishing thriller of a woman with a secret irresistibly drawn into the glittering world of a famous man whose past may be murder….

Taking the stage that evening, Daisy Justine had no idea that she was auditioning for her life. Watching from the darkness beyond the footlights was the world-famous composer Jason Hayes. The reclusive genius was seeking a new star to play the tragic heroine in his latest work, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello.

From the moment he heard her sing, Jason knew he’d found the star he’d been searching for his whole life. But coaxing her from Geneva to the bright lights of Broadway wasn’t going to be easy. For she’d made a promise to another man that she couldn’t break–nor disclose to anyone, not even Jason.

Jason has only two weeks to change Daisy’s mind. But the closer he gets to her, the closer danger comes. For there’s more than just artistic temperament behind Jason’s legendary seclusion. He, too, is harboring a secret, stalked by a killer who’s followed him for decades. Now he’ll do anything to protect Daisy from the greatest threat of all–herself. Daisy’s determined to catch the ruthless sociopath who’ll stop at nothing to ruin their lives. And she’s baiting the trap with the one victim the killer can’t resist.

    " An Unexpected Song by Iris Johansen (copyright 1990) is a story of Daisy Justine, a woman with a name that aptly describes her nature: charmingingly innocent, yet strong and courageous. Daisy is an actress in a play that unknowingly auditions for a world-famous composer, Jason Hayes. He is convinced that Daisy will be absolutely perfect for one of his latest works. However, no matter how Jason tries to cajole Daisy to be the star of his show, she stands firm in her resolve and convictions. There is something going on in Daisy's private life that she refuses to travel abroad. The play that Jason wants her to star is in somewhere else. She will not tell Jason what it is that is keeping her close to home. But, Jason says and does whatever he can to convince Daisy that she simply has to play this part! Iris Johansen will not only capture the reader's attention with this story but she'll capture their hearts as well. There is the perfect amount of drama, suspense, romance, and passion to make it an absolutely thrilling love story! Anna Todd "

    " Probably a better book if read when originally published. Now it seems really dated and just too alpha. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 1/3/2014

    " Giving it 2 stars because there is way too much sex in this book for me. Just wanted to warn those that feel the same as I do. It was a good story, but would be a lot better without all that in it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 12/20/2013

    " A great big blech. Near-rape is so not a turn-on in any way shape or form. Didn't bother to finish. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Darlis | 12/11/2013

    " Is this a Harlequin Romance novel? I couldn't take all the throbbing, probing emotionalism of this. Jeez! What a waste! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim Towell | 11/12/2013

    " Weak plot. More of a woman's book, but still weak for Iris J. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Genelle | 11/2/2013

    " Good book, but alot of dirty talk. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine US | 9/22/2013

    " Generic romance- felt old (which makes sense considering its original publication date). But it passed the time "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 5/19/2013

    " Not the usual Iris Johansen mystery thriller. This is a romance book and is quite steamy at times. The book read more like a Harlequin Romance and the plot was very predictable (not the usual Johansen). But for what it is, it was an enjoyable, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ariel | 5/14/2013

    " this story is amazing and give me goose bumps "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen Lopez | 8/3/2012

    " It was okay if you like romance. I pretty much guessed the ending without having to finish it but it's not really my kind of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti Loveless | 7/14/2012

    " Just finished this one. It is full of mystery, beauty and lust. Quite steamy in parts. It stimulates the emotions with complete sadness, hurt, loneliness, danger and sheer happiness. I laughed out loud and shed some tears and at the end, I didn't want it to be over. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Betty Gray | 2/24/2012

    " Tried to read this to mother and got so very bored I didn't want to complete it...so, I'm not going to. "
