12 Days of Christmas - Day 3

I accomplished a good amount of shopping yesterday.
The family convened around the tree at 7pm to decorate and were scattered by 8:30. Overall, a success! :o) Today will be another day of shopping for me. While the DH hangs with the guys watching football I’ll be shopping for him!
Now on the fun stuff!

Today’s question: What is the name of the Limo driver? Hint - it's in the excerpt.

Ever wonder about the face behind the voice of a radio DJ?
Nina Walters has. She can’t get enough of disc jockey Ty’s sexy baritone. He has her masturbating to his voice daily. When he challenges his listeners to a contest Nina can't resist the challenge, the opportunity and will use every advantage she has or can find.
Ty is offering a dream date, with him, to one lucky winner. He’s positive no one will guess the answer correctly. So, when Nina does he’s floored. Being a man of his word, he goes through with the date. Sparks fly, but secrets linger. Will their heat for one another be enough to ride the waves of deception?

Nina struggled to keep up with him. She couldn’t imagine why he was ignoring her. She hung up on Cindy with no explanation. She needed to find out what was wrong with Ty. She watched him climb into the front of the limo. When she reached the door she pulled on the lever.
Locked. She knocked on the black-tinted window.
No response.
She knocked again, this time louder.
Still no response.
"I know you’re in there, Ty. Please come out and tell me what’s wrong," she pleaded.
Why was he ignoring her? What had she done? Besides waiting for him to come out of the bathroom, she’d thought they were having a good time. What had changed his mind?
Jasper opened his door and stepped out. "Ms. Walters, let me get the door for you." He opened the back door and waited for her to step in.
"I’m not getting in until Ty explains to me what the hell is going on." Her voice grew louder as her frustration mounted.
"Ms. Walters, please."
She knew she was making Jasper uncomfortable, but she didn’t care. She couldn’t understand what was going on.
"I’m not moving, so either you have Ty get his ass out of the car and talk to me, or you can leave me here."
Jasper closed the door and disappeared into the limo, leaving her standing there.
Just fucking great. Was he going to take her seriously and leave her? He wouldn’t would he? This was ridiculous. Was he some kind of weirdo? Did he do this often? They’d shared an incredible day. What the fuck was going on?
She counted to one hundred. No one exited the limo, but it didn’t drive away either. Maybe that was a good sign. She paced the length of the limo racking her brain. She couldn’t figure it out, unless…
Oh shit!
Had he heard her conversation with Cindy? She hadn’t said enough to have him understand—had she? She’d continually looked over her shoulder to see if he was coming. Had he snuck up on her and listened to her private conversation? That would have been rude. But still, she couldn’t wrap her thoughts around what would make him so mad. She hadn’t said anything incriminating. If she had and he was pissed Cindy could lose her job.
That would be the nightmare of all nightmares.
When she reached two hundred and still no Ty, she went back to his side and knocked on the window.
