Brian Burk has known Tempest Proctor their entire lives. For the past eight years, he has waited patiently for her to realize they belong together.
Tempest Proctor has a monumental problem. Her element, wind, is lashing out at her, denying containment and blanketing her community in a severe snowstorm. Tempest desperately begs for relief, but her entreaties just seem to further anger the winds as icy fists pummel her mercilessly.
Brian finds Tempest, practically frozen to death and catatonic, while plowing the road outside town. He brings her home and cares for her. His touch seems to quell the storm inside the stubborn woman as well as calm the storm raging outside. Brian knows Tempest is the one woman who can truly fulfill him, but he knows she must be allowed to choose for herself. Brian is patient and kind, but Tempest knows her gift well and fears the toll it will exact upon Brian if she succumbs to her desires.
Here is another winner in the Elemental Challenges series by Robin Leigh Miller! Set in the few days before Christmas, the description of the intense blizzard Tempest fought to tame is bone-chilling. The story is fast-paced and the unity of purpose, shown by the sisters, makes it outstanding. As the group banters with and teases each other, they play pivotal roles in helping Tempest come to terms with and accept Brian as her true mate. The sex scenes between Brian and Tempest were gloriously rendered and moving with an uncommon depth of feeling that I find sadly lacking in most romantica. This is a short, scalding read that is sure to leave readers replete and content yet eager for the next round.
Caution: Contains graphic sexual content that may not be suitable for readers under 17.
