Storm of DesireBook Synopsis 
Corporate attorney Samantha Greco needs some peace and quiet to come to a decision about her career. Instead, while an icy nor’easter rages outside, she finds herself trapped in a cottage on Fenwick Island with Aiden Rourke, a man she used five years ago when she ran from the heartbreak of her fiancĂ©’s betrayal.

Aiden Rourke has loved Sam for years. For one glorious night she was his. But then she fled, wounding his ego and his heart. Thrown together again, they soon discover time hasn’t diminished their fiery passion for each other. Only Aiden has ever been able to melt Sam with just a look or a touch. But the fear that she’s like her mother, who used men mercilessly, scares Sam to death.

The storm outside is nothing compared to the storm of desire, fear, and guilt raging inside Sam. But during their wild weekend together, Sam and Aiden draw closer and realize their all-consuming passion for each other masks deeper needs and desires.

When the storm ends, will they go their separate ways? Or will they find the courage to face the future together as one?

Book Review of Storm of Desire by Cara Marsi

Samantha is a beautiful but lonely attorney struggling to rise in her career. To sort her thoughts she drives up the coast to her mother's vacant home and is caught in a dangerous storm. What she finds there is more than just a couple frightened cats.

Enter Aiden--a ruggedly handsome, emotionally grounded hunk of man who knows what he wants. He is not expecting anyone to be occupying Lisa's home when he arrives to secure the residence for the raging storm.

What impressed me the most about this book is how beautifully the author paints pictures with words. I could easily visualize how the characters were feeling by their body language and actions. Cara Marsi is truly gifted in the choreography of words.

The first scene caught my interest and I loved the wit with which the author writes. I laughed during Sam and Aiden's first encounter because it was written so realistically that I could picture hers and his response. I won't elaborate so as not to spoil the scene but I loved it! The author did a superb job of drawing me in quickly and holding my interest.

Sparks flew right away between the characters and without a supporting cast these two characters were definitely strong enough to carry the book on their own. The story flowed very well and was a true pleasure to read. I loved the subtle mention throughout the story of the frightened cats during a dangerous storm that lasted a couple of days.

While Sam and Aiden wait out the storm, each struggles with past feelings while caving into their undeniable attraction to one another. The passion is hot, descriptive and extremely loving which I truly enjoyed. Each love scene was written with a deft touch and though very descriptive and not leaving anything to the reader's imagination, the sex was sweet and hot but never offensive.

The characters are very well drawn and you're not left wondering what their thinking. The author does a great job of balancing the emotions of each one. I found myself relating to Sam and her troubled past while cheering her on for all she'd overcome. Aiden is as solid as they come and if all men were as loving, tender and patient as him the world would be perfect. I loved him. He's deeply romantic and tender yet strong in all the right ways.

Sweetly erotic with a generous portion of bedroom action, Storm of Desire is a great read with a very fitting title. Nicely done.
