Book Description (publisher)

Katja Stoltz  is a risk-taking singer-songwriter hoping to make it in the indie music scene in Dresden, Germany. Micah Sturm’s a brooding uptown banker on a quest.

Driven to the streets, Katja is picked up by Micah – but he doesn’t want what she thinks he does. There’s an undeniable attraction between them, a gravitational pull they both struggle to resist. Katja knows she mustn’t fall in love with this handsome enigma. There’s something dark lurking beneath the surface. He could be dangerous.

And even if her life isn’t on the line, her heart most definitely is.

*not erotica – no explicit sex or coarse language*

This series is an exciting collaboration between Lee Strauss as an Indie Author and several very talented Indie Singer-Songwriters. Four original songs produced by Norm Strauss are featured in Sun & Moon and are performed by award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Kim McMechan. MP3 links are included at the end.

All the songs from the Minstrel Series can be found at Bandcamp.


SUN AND MOON by Lee Strauss is an interesting Contemporary Romance set in Dresden, Germany. #1 in “The Minstrel”series.

What an interesting concept and storyline! Meet Katja Stoltz, a songwriter and Micah Sturm,a banker. One is a brooder the other a risk-taker, together, they make a great team, that is if they can overcome their issues. What an intriguing world to say the least. If you enjoy the TV series, “Nashville” than I think you will enjoy “The Minstrel” series. However, if you are looking for a story with explicit sex, coarse language, or an erotica, than this is not that kind of story. It is a sweet,tender romance, that is sure to hold your interest as you follow Katja and Micah on their journey of discovery and love.  Well written and I thought had engaging characters and an interesting storyline. If you enjoy the music scene, a bit of darkness lurking just under the surface, a secret or two, a bit of mystery, and romance than “Sun and Moon” will be right up your alley. A great story with a HEA ending! NO cliffhanger! Check it out, I don’t think you will regret your choice. I look forward to her next installment in “The Minstrel” series.
