The Siren Series by Tom Barry
A story of seduction, deception and betrayal…
When the Siren Calls (The Siren, #1)
Restless and neglected, Isobel is suffocating in a stagnant marriage. Suave and charismatic Jay is fighting for survival. An invitation to visit Jay’s resort in the hills of Tuscany sparks Isobel to imagine a life of freedom and excitement.
Dismissing her husband’s objections, Isobel pursues Jay to Tuscany on the pretext of searching for a holiday home. After fighting anguished guilt, she abandons herself in a passionate affair, with her controlling lover encouraging Isobel to push beyond her sexual boundaries.
But all is not as it seems in the idyllic Tuscan retreat, and Isobel finds herself trapped in a web of intrigue, deception, and betrayal. She is one player in a dangerous love triangle, unsure whether Jay is her saviour, or her nemesis. As her world falls apart, she must choose between the woman she thought she was, and the woman she has become.
When the Siren Cries (The Siren, #2)
When a reckless affair destroys her marriage, heartbroken Isobel flees to California wanting nothing more than to rebuild her life. Pursued by two men with secrets to hide, struggling Hollywood actor Ryan and mysterious millionaire Lance, when she is arrested on the Mexican border she must again confront a world of deception and betrayal. Set in the idyllic surroundings of Coronado Island, but against the backdrop of the dark side of life along the America-Mexico border, When the Siren Cries is a sensual romantic thriller. The story plunges Isobel into an alien world in which she is embroiled in drugs and guns, crime and violence, uncertain of who, if anyone, she can trust.
Saving Jay (The Siren, #3)
Jay Brooke is the lean and hungry maverick heading for the top, who gets results his own way. To his admirers he is the future of management consultancy, to the old guard he is a loose cannon who needs to be reigned in. And his new boss, American ball-breaker Sara, believes she is the one to do it. To shaker and mover Jay, she is a second rate woman masquerading as a first rate man, and conflict seems inevitable. But who will win out? Will it be the man who gets results but breaks all the rules, or the woman who wants what Jay has, but doesn’t have what it takes to earn it? There is plenty of intrigue, as well as romance, not least from the two very different women who dream of a future with Jay; his loyal secretarial assistant Emma, and his ambitious colleague, the feisty Louise who will stop at nothing to get her man.
This is a story that packs a punch at the belly of power and privilege. It will resonate with the millions who have worked in big Corporations and professional services firms, and frighten the millions who every year apply to work in them. It will delight and entertain the 99% who despise corporate greed and the fat cats who profit from it. Saving Jay paints an unflattering picture of ruthless ambition, back-stabbing, and an amoral Corporate world.
This book is the “Prequel” version, and takes us upto the inciting incident that sets the full story of Saving Jay in motion. It’s timeline extends beyond that of “When the Siren Calls”, and here we first meet the young, straight-shooting Jay, as he was before injustice, hypocrisy and double standards changed him to the wheeler dealer we see in “When the Siren Calls.” The plot of Saving Jay centres around Jay’s descent into a street-wise womaniser, hustling to get back in the back time, and the woman that offers him redemption.
