She’d give anything to lose control.
A Westlake Enterprises story
Storm Buchanan’s talent for mind control comes in handy as an investigator for a private agency, but it’s hell on her love life. Men bow to her every whim, so there’s no challenge. Where’s the fun in that?
Maybe that’s why she can’t trust herself around Rafe Savage. The smug, sexy, annoying investigator for a rival firm is the one man who seems impervious to her power. Worse, when he kisses her, she all-too-willingly slips under his control.
Rafe’s gift for seeing into the future doesn’t usually blindside him…until it comes to Storm. The beautiful seductress assaults his control on all fronts, and the spontaneous flashes of her life in danger have his every instinct on alert.
When attempts on both their lives escalate, Storm and Rafe must stick together to find a madman bent on vengeance. While it’s no surprise that their enforced proximity has their bodies going up in flames, neither expects lust to melt into love. Or that they’ll need every ounce of their combined skills to fight for a future that could die before it’s born.
Rafe Savage spells temptation for Storm Buchanan. There are so many reasons she shouldn’t want Rafe. He’s a member of competitive firm and he’s the same jerk who compromises her mission, but after a taste of passion from him, she’s willing to give them a try, especially since Rafe seems immune to Storm’s psychic abilities.
Storm and Rafe have beautiful chemistry in this sexy romance but with the fast paced action plot, their romance got lost in the shuffle. There were a few tantalizing previews that kept the romance plot moving along but in between those parts were a bit murky.
While the action scenes kept me riveted all the way to the end, the world building left a bit to be desired. This is the second book in the series (I didn’t read the first) so it may be one of those series you have to read in order to get the greatest readability from. Saying that, the sex was hot and the attraction between the characters was off the charts scorching hot. Ms. Harte wows with sex scenes that will make your heart pump.
Storming His Heart is a great book for people who want to give a new series a try. Ms. Harte has created an exciting and sexy tale that is a fun read as well and I recommend it for action adventure lovers who like a little extra psychic twist with their stories.
