Former Navy SEAL Remy Begnaud can really
make a girl feel all tingly inside. Literally. All his life,
Remy has been able to call storms. Lightning, rain, hail,
tornadoes and hurricanes come at his command, and sometimes
without it. Mother Nature is very demanding of him. He never
wanted the gift, but he’s got it. When a storm is brewing
outside there’s also a storm brewing inside Remy, which can
only be released by intense sex which has always frightened
the women in his life.
Parameterologist Haley Holmes works for
ACRO, the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives. Although she
doesn’t have a rare gift such as telekinesis, or being a
medium, she loves her job. Her boss has sent her to Bayou
Blond, in Louisiana, to investigate Remy Begnaud to see if the
reports of his abilities are true, and if so, to see if he can
be recruited for ACRO. She’s heard that he’s a firecracker in
a storm and Haley have never shied away from sex, and she
doesn’t plan to start now.
Remy and Haley meet with a bang, and it
doesn’t let up from there. He’s skeptical at first, but when
ACRO’s rival, the Itor Corporation, shows up to try and
recruit Remy, all hell breaks loose, and Remy realizes that
he’s found the one way he can control his gift: making love
This is a tough review for me to write.
When I started reading Riding the Storm, I
thought, “If this is going to be a lot of sex scenes mixed

The morning after the storm, when Remy
and Haley were getting to know one another after their night
of passion, I settled in for what became a fantastic read. I
liked these two characters separately, and loved them
together. Their chemistry is electrifying and will sting the
reader, in a good way.
Riding the Storm is full of
hunky alpha males and strong, independent women who know what
they want and aren’t afraid to go after it. For me,
Riding the Storm went from a I-have-to-read-for-review
book to a I-can’t-wait-to-finish-it-and-start-the-next-one
book as quickly as a tornado moves through Texas.
Ms. Croft has crafted a Joyfully Reviewed
Recommended Read for me, and I’m anxiously awaiting the second
book in the ACRO series.
