Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

If Moira knew that other people were trying to kill Connor, she might not have stabbed him. Moira blames Connor, Lord Diarmid’s seer, for the death of her family, but her one and only attempt to avenge their murders with Connor’s blood is a failure. Diarmid is convinced Moira is connected to earlier attempts on his seer’s life, and when she is captured, he is determined to get the truth out of her. Although Connor doesn’t believe that Moira is part of the plot to kill him, she is the only woman whose passion can help ease the terrible price he pays for his visions. Which means Connor is not about to let Moira go, no matter what she says. Brisbin begins a captivating new trilogy set in medieval Scotland and adds a dash of the paranormal to her already boldly sensual and richly emotional brand of romance. --John Charles

I finish reading this book in a day an half.
lover of "Scotts"
I have been a fan of Terri Brisbin's earlier books but this one just seemed to drag on with far too many explicit sex scenes and the story going nowhere.

I was as much a captive as Conner and Moira and, because of that, I was able to feel what they were feeling.

I read romance novels as a source of stress relief, especially now with the world in chaos and the changes within our own country...ebooks are wonderful and cheaper than a psychiatrist couch, healthier than drinking. I have enjoyed other novels that Terri Brisbin has written and though the books in this series were more expensive; the subject seemed intriguing, so I purchased the first two of the trilogy.

The author has combined historical romance with the paranormal. Hannah Howell has begun a series using the same combination with a family that has been blessed or cursed with special gifts and the plots and characters are well done. Unfortunately, I can not say the same about A Storm of Passion which is about a "Seerer" named Connor and a young woman, Moira. Moira is seeking revenge for the death of her family and clan because of information that he provided during one of his first episodes of clairvoyance. Conner unwittingly caused the attack six years earlier that changed Moira's life.

It is a simple plot; but, I began to dislike the characters and by half way through, the novel was uninteresting. I found the "romance" to be too explicit, from the beginning and then repeated throughout the book. Conner's second sight was used by a wealthy and powerful lord in order to increase the man's power. Before the episodes of "seeing" he has enormous sexual drive with the ability to bring women to him with the willingness to do what ever he desires.

If you enjoy historical romance with detailed information about a time period and a more gentle approach between the characters with a plot that is interesting; I suggest that you read one of this author's earlier books.

Format: Paperback
Storm of Passion is a paranormal romance that works on many levels but the story does have a tendency to drag in the middle. The leads have a scorching relationship but not necessarily a romantic one until the last part of the novel.

When she was a teenager, Moira saw her family slaughtered. She survived by hiding and overheard the marauders say that the Seer had shown them where to find her village. Moira is filled with hatred and revenge and makes it her life mission to find the Seer and kill him. Moira is unlike many romance heroines, she is no maiden. She has quite literally used her body to discover the whereabouts of the Seer. She has no qualms about doing so either.

The Seer is named Conner and he resides in a castle with a violent, angry Lord who uses his skill to enhance his own power. Conner is tormented by his visions and one way he escapes is through sexual encounters. This is in fact, how Moira and he first meet, when he mistakenly believes her to be a strumpet sent by the castle Lord.

Moira and Conner have a very very passionate interlude. Moira though still harbors great hatred toward Conner and he perceives this but is unaware of its source. Their physical chemistry is undeniable but Moira distrusts Conner and blames him totally for her families' deaths. Her assassination attempt fails and lands her at his mercy.

The tension in this book really comes from two sources; someone besides Moira wants Conner dead and Moira's struggle between hatred and compassion for the Seer. Moira is cold and almost emotionless at first. Her feelings tend to be dark and destructive and repetitive.

Conner's feelings are well described, better than Moira's actually. Conner knows that Moira is unlike any other female he has bedded.

Format: Paperback
Mistress of the Storm by Terri Brisbin is a scorching romance! Emotionally riveting and powerfully passionate, this book is a fantastic read!

Isabel has been mistreated by her step father, Sigurd, for many years now. So long as Isabel obeys him, he agrees to keep her sister Thora safe. With Thora's safety and happiness the most important thing to her, Isabel has willingly accepted her role as Sigurd's whore to give her body to any man he chooses. One night, he offers her to Duncan of Skye in order to convince him to become a part of Sigurd's evil plans for power. They spend a passionate night together, but Duncan realizes that will not be enough.

Now Duncan has arranged for them to spend one month together. Isabel seems to ease the quiet uncertainty within Duncan and he cannot understand why. She does not know it yet, but Duncan is gifted with a special healing ability. A blessing that is slowly killing him and causing him immense pain but shockingly Isabel's presence is easing that pain. If Duncan's life is coming to an end, he knows he must spend every last minute with Isabel...and before his time is up, ensure Isabel is safe from her evil stepfather forever.

The biggest question with this novel is whether or not you can come to love Isabel. It is not a secret that her evil stepfather forces her to use her body for his gain and she has become a shell of a person because of it. She has such a low opinion of herself that you come to feel very sorry for her. She only measures her worth by how enjoyable the next man thought she was in bed. With all that being said, I found myself going in the complete opposite direction and discovering Isabel is a remarkable character.
