Tempting Tempo - A new release in Michelle Mankin's awesome Tempest Series

Hard to believe that this is Book 5 in beloved author Michelle Mankin's gritty "Tempest" series.  She's created an awesome and believable world of music and showmanship and the attendant hazards, with the Seattle-based hard rock group Tempest (based roughly on Guns 'n Roses) at its heart.  In this installment, Michelle touches on an issue close to her own heart, as well, that of anorexia, and the troubled world of those with eating disorders.  This video is a cool window into Michelle's creative process, and her own struggles with eating disorders.  It's a candid and brave look into a problem that affects so many young women - take a look!


But in addition to a sensitive treatment of this subject, Tempting Tempo brings all the storytelling savvy and strength we've come to expect from Michelle's music infused imagination.  Here's the pitch!

HE SEES HER IN A WAY SHE COULD NEVER SEE HERSELF.
SHE HAS NEVER FELT MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN WHEN SHE WAS IN HIS ARMS.
Sager Reed, the strong and silent bassist of the rock band Tempest, is well acquainted with loss. The thoughtful artist’s own tattoos only hint at his turbulent youth. He buries his guilt about it deeply within his troubled heart.
Melinda T. Belle, the daughter of a dysfunctional rock legend, as a rule avoids emotional entanglement. In fact, she has turned her back on nearly everyone and everything she has ever known. Now she is alone, trying desperately to find fulfillment in the one dream she has left, competitive skiing. 
CAN SAGER OVERCOME HIS DARK PAST AND FINALLY BELIEVE THAT HE IS WORTHY OF HER LOVE?
WILL MELINDA REALIZE TOO LATE THAT HE IS THE ONE THAT REALLY MATTERS?
