Taming the Storm

Lyla Summers hates men. Okay, maybe hate is a strong word ... Lyla intensely dislikes men.

Her father has let her down her whole life. Her brother betrayed her in the worst way possible. And her past relationship experiences with men have been less than great.

Lyla is focussing all her energy into her band, Vintage, so when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around for her. The last thing she wants is a man getting in the way.

Tom Carter loves women. Okay, love might be pushing it … Tom enjoys screwing lots of women.

When tragedy befalls his best friend, Tom finds himself making a promise to the big man upstairs – he’ll change his ways, if he saves the woman his best friend loves.

Tom’s prayer is answered. Now he has to change. Which means no sleeping around.

After Vintage’s manager breaks her leg skiing, Tom steps in as tour manager, and Lyla finds herself on tour with the man whore of rock.

Put one perpetually horny Tom and one sex resistant Lyla together, equals a recipe for disaster. Or so you’d think...

But an unexpected friendship is formed. A closeness neither of them expected. Putting one chastity belt and one lamp that is in desperate need of rubbing, to the test.

Will the sex storm that is Tom Carter, finally find himself tamed by the rock chick with a hardened heart, or will he go back to his womanizing ways...?

MUSIC INSPIRATION

Stand out track: Thought I’d Died And Gone To Heaven - Bryan Adams

I was just over half-way through writing TAMING THE STORM and I still hadn’t found Tom and Lyla’s song, and I was starting to panic I never would. Then my husband surprised me with tickets to see Bryan Adams in concert. Of course all of my Bryan Adams albums came out and I immediately started listening to them. Nearing the end on one of the albums, a song I’ve loved forever, started to play, and I just knew immediately that it was Tom and Lyla’s song. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it myself before then! It couldn’t be more Tom than if I’d wrote the song myself. I owe a big thank you to my hubby for leading me to Tom & Lyla’s song.
