The Sound of Love 
Senses of Love Book 1 
by Kyle Shoop 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

"Words that can't be spoken can still be sung." 

Experience the compelling, heart warming romance of Charlotte and John as they express thru music what can't be said in words. 

Charlotte and John grew up as young orphans in the secluded outskirts of a rural town. Each day, they’d sneak out to the nearby forest to escape the cold grasp of the orphanage’s tyrant-ruler. However, the safety that came from their friendship was suddenly ripped apart when they got caught. 

Years later, Charlotte conquered the marketing world in downtown Portland. Having gained normalcy in her life since her days in the orphanage, Charlotte never expected her world to be turned upside down by John abruptly being thrust back into her life. 

But the years since the orphanage had not at all been kind to John, leaving him unable to open up to Charlotte about the details. Can John’s love for songwriting be the key to finally opening up? 

Would the reunited friends discover that John's rekindled love for music also rekindle their long-awaited, and much desired, love? 

"I adored every second of this sweet, heartwarming story." - Amazon Reviewer

Why Write the “Senses of Love” Romance Series

Ever come across an artistic idea that seems so obvious you wonder why it took so long to be done? For example, mixing a children’s story, a fantastical chocolate factory, and little guys called Oompa-Loompas seems like such an obvious idea I can’t believe that it took humanity until 1971 to finally tell the story! Ha. But seriously, I’ve written music and books for many years and I always wished an idea like that would happen to me.

Then it did. It wasn’t the light-bulb moment I had hoped it would be. And I didn’t immediately recognize it as that type of artistic idea until I was in the middle of writing the second book in my series. But once I realized it, I knew. Let me explain.

I set out to write a single book about a compelling, uplifting love story. After having toiled between about five titles for it once my first draft was complete, I ended up calling it The Sound of Love. It involves a musician expressing thru song emotions that he otherwise has a tough time expressing in just words, when he reconnects with a childhood friend under surprising circumstances.

But having completely enjoyed the experience of telling a love story, I jumped write into telling a second – completely different – love story. This one told the story about a talented painter who finds love at first sight but whose love is tested thru the unexpected, heart-wrenching trials of life. Halfway thru writing the story is when the idea hit me, to title it The Sight of Love. It was perfect for the story, but more importantly perfect for what innate idea about love had compelled me to write the stories. Each of us experiences or expresses love differently, yet this singular, compelling idea of “love” can motivate someone to no end – much like the rare golden ticket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

I recognized a pattern – the synthesis of my desire in telling my new stories. A series was born, the “Senses of Love” series. The series will be five books, with each one telling a different love story focused on one of the five human senses. It just makes sense, right? At least, to me it does. My first novel of my series is The Sound of Love and it is free for a limited time only through the blog tour through the link provided. The second novel is The Sight of Love and is also now available on Amazon in ebook, paperback and Kindle Unlimited. The third novel, A Taste of Love, will be released this summer- likely in July. The books can be read in any order, and I hope you enjoy the different compelling love stories which they tell.
