When the Siren Calls by Tom Barry


When the Siren Calls by Tom Barry

When the Siren Calls, set in Tuscany, is an adult contemporary romance and business thriller. It is the story of two people, Isobel and Jay, and their passionate and cathartic affair. She is a restless and neglected woman - a modern day Lady Chatterley - struggling to live a life true to herself, not the one her workaholic husband and fickle friends expect. The enigmatic Jay is a gifted but flawed maverick, a powerful and controlling lothario locked in his own fight for survival. When Jay invites Isobel to his idyllic Tuscan retreat she imagines a life of excitement outside her stagnant marriage. But all is not as it seems and Isobel finds herself trapped in a web of deception and betrayal. Hopelessly bound under Jay's spell, Isobel must discover if her lover is her saviour, or her nemesis.


'A pacy, racy romance novel that simultaneously feels like a critique of a particular social scene'
Tom Fletcher The Leaping

'I thoroughly enjoyed the way the strands come together as the novel pushes towards climax. [The sex scenes in When the Siren Calls] are vital, pacy, and never gross or uncomfortable - as the annual Bad Sex Awards shows, this is rare in fiction.'
Matthew Branton The Love Parade

'Wow - Lady Chatterley meets Christian Grey.'
