New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen's romance novel Stormy Vows got the manga treatment by Ohzora Publishing. The one volume manga is titled Arashi no Oka de no Chikai and was released on Monday.
The author's official website describes the original novel:
Fiercely proud of her independence, Brenna Sloan felt her assurance crumble under Michael Donovan's forceful approach. They were both fighters--but Brenna wasn't strong enough to reach out for the love she needed, and Michael knew only how to take--until he met Brenna. With tantalizing persuasion, he overcame her objections, urged her into a sudden marriage, and carried her away. Only after a heartbreaking misunderstanding nearly destroyed their happiness did they surrender to the fiery ecstasy of their passion. But could Michael convince Brenna that his promise to love her was forever?
Comic Natalie adds that Brenna is an aspiring actress who meets producer Michael Donovan at an audition. Artist Chisato Nakamura (The Heroic Legend of Arslan manga) is drawing the adaptation. Nakamura has adapted plenty of English-language romance novels to manga before, including works by Elizabeth Boyle, Kay Robbins, and Robin Kaye.
Johansen's Blue Velvet was also adapted into a manga by Karan Dan under the title Sunda Blue ni Miserarete.
