Nora Sutherlin is known for her wildly erotic works of fiction. After several successful books Nora wants to write something of a more personal nature. It’s still erotica but this is the story of Nora’s heart. However, it may never hit shelves as she and her new editor are constantly butting heads.
Zachary Easton is a famous editor known for turning books into hits. However, Nora’s personal sojourn has him constantly questioning and reworking. He pushes her like no one ever has and she likes to push him right back.
Lovers old and new are determined to make Nora’s life more difficult. Will she be able to create another hit and find peace within herself?
The Siren is filled with arousing emotions and physical interludes. Nora is a very emotional character whose past is filled with pitfalls that are still haunting her today. Zachary is a British straight-laced editor and he is pushed to his limits by Nora. The Siren was a difficult read for me. I just had trouble getting through it. At the beginning, I felt the promise of an excellent story but it never succeeded in capturing my attention fully.
