A man with the power to set them both free.
He can summon lightning at will. Emerge unscathed from the center of a tornado. Strip a woman down to her barest defenses through the sheer force of his sexuality. He’s gorgeous, dangerous, and the target of parameteorologist Haley Holmes’s latest mission. Haley has been dispatched to the Louisiana bayous to investigate the phenomenon known as Remy Begnaud–a man with a gift he never wanted: the ability to control a storm’s fury. But even a woman trained in bizarre weather phenomena has no defense against the electrifying power of the ex—Navy SEAL...a power his enemies would kill to control.
With her agency monitoring their every move, Haley’s job is to seduce Remy, gain his trust–and help him harness his extraordinary gift. But who will protect her from this voracious lover who’s introducing her to a new world of erotic thrills—a man who grows increasingly insatiable with each new weather event? Haley knows a big storm is approaching—and with it will come unexpected delights. But so, too, will the storm unleash her greatest fears: an enemy bent on destroying Remy. And her worst fear of all—falling in love with this magnificent man, then having to betray him.
Okay, how freaking hot is that description?
Haley is a parameterologist. She explains weather than seems unexplainable. After intensive training, Haley (and her equipment) was sent to New Orleans to find out if Remy Begnaud really could control the weather. They already knew that Mother Nature seemed to release her fury anytime Remy was in the area. What Haley has been sent to find out is if Remy can control the storm(s). Either way, she was sent to bring him into ARCO before their evil counterpart (an agency I can't remember the name of) take him whether he wants to go or not.
Though Haley was prepared to seduce Remy, she was unprepared for her instant attraction to him. It only takes two days for Haley to fall in love with Remy, something she won't admit to herself. For Remy, this is the first time he's ever met a woman who can accept and even enjoy his intensity in bed. While Remy wants to believe that Haley is the real thing, there are certain things that point to her not being who she says she is.
When the evil agents from the evil agency show up in New Orleans, it's the first time that Remy is actually glad for the "gift" he has. Remy soon has to decide where his loyalty lies. With the agency he doesn't know and the woman he's fallen in love with, or himself. Accepting that Haley's feelings are real, Remy will have to accept that there are other people like him out there.
I thought this was a great start to Croft's new series. There were several secondary characters that I can't wait to read more about.
