Not what radio DJ Tallulah Lazenby expects to hear from the sex god she was in bed with just hours earlier! Who turns out to be her new boss. Total. Nightmare.
Executive Tristan Bamfield’s reasons for being in London are strictly professional…until he manages to sleep with the woman he was supposed to be firing! And when Tristan has to take charge and get Lula back on air, what was supposed to be one night becomes weeks of tantalizing torture! Because back in the studio those red-hot memories are making Lula a major distraction…and “business as usual” is much easier said than done…
Welcome to the wonderful world of radio. I had a lot of fun writing about my introverted DJ and her battle to keep her job-and her self-control-after she locks horns, lips and more with a hot-as-sin guy who unfortunately turns out to be her new boss!
As an introvert myself, I’m fascinated by the differences between how I function compared with how an extrovert might get through her day. For a long time I thought my natural instinct to hang back in a new situation and my need to take regular breaks at social occasions was a character flaw, but after researching the subject of introversion I was mightily relieved to fin that I wasn’t alone in my quirks.
My heroine, Lula, has been struggling with her quirks for many years, worrying the whole time that her sometimes debilitating shyness outside of work has made her unlovable. It takes a hero as compassionate and patient as Tristan to help her recognise her strengths and make her realise that her idiosyncrasies are actually what make her so special.
I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I loved writing it.
All the best
