A Perfect Storm, by Lynn Raye Harris
Okay, maybe there is no such thing as a perfect storm, but my June book does have storms! First, there’s the storm between Prince Cristiano di Savaré and Princess Antonella Romanelli – and then there’s the literal storm that threatens to destroy the island they are sheltering on.
I do love a good rainstorm. I even love a thunderstorm when there’s absolutely no possibility of a tornado (since I live in tornado country!). There’s something about curling up on the couch or in the bed with a good book and listening to the rain hammer down.
I like watching rain gush from the gutters, the contrast of the bright green grass against the darkness of the storm, and I like the rivulets of water chasing down the windowpane. I wouldn’t like it every day, but there are just some days when a storm is perfect.
I’m not so sure that Cristiano and Antonella would agree with me. Cristiano has come to the Caribbean island of Canta Paradiso with one thought in mind: getting Antonella’s cooperation in a deal that ultimately means he will be able to take over her country.
Sounds like he’s got his work cut out for him, right?
Antonella is rightfully wary of this handsome prince. He’s too arrogant, too entitled, and too irritating. And she’s not about to cooperate with him on anything.
Until a hurricane closes in on the island and the two of them have to take shelter together from the storm. A lot can happen when there’s nothing but wind and rain and the possibility of death looming over your head.
It’s a perfect storm of circumstances that bring Cristiano and Antonella together. Their journey isn’t easy (what fun would that be?) but I think it’s worth it in the end. I know they agree with me!
RT Book Reviews awarded THE PRINCE’S ROYAL CONCUBINE 4 ½ stars and a Top Pick recommendation! Rhomylly Forbes said, “This is a first-class tale taken straight from today’s headlines. The characters are multidimensional, and the reader will cheer at the excellently crafted ending. And the love scenes are definitely hot!”
I hope you enjoy the story! Now tell me, do you like the occasional storm? Do you have any favorite ‘stormy’ romances?
