Format: Paperback
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 with Haley.

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 with a little bit of story, then I'm going to be mad." But the more I got into the book, the more I realized that the early sex scenes were the perfect way for Ms. Croft to showcase Remy's talents, and the troubles that those talents have given him.

Riding the Storm is a paranormal erotic romance that pulls the reader into a fascinating world where the race is on to control the world's weather. Remy is a ex-Seal whose sexual desire triggers powerful storms which he can't control. Haley is a parameteorologist who wants to recruit Remy for the agency she works for. But she might have gotten a little more than she bargained for when she and Remy explode sexually.

The chemistry between the two lead characters is powerful and steamy. The book is well-written and engages the reader immediately. The secondary characters, especially Annika and Creed, add even more spice to this novel. Highly recommended for those who enjoy a really good erotic romance.

Like another reviewer wrote, if you like X-men, romance and lotsa sex in your novels, this book is for you. The author has created an interesting world of supernatural humans and the relationships amongst them. I found the heroine(s) to be independent and strong but yet still with the ability to give their hearts to gorgeous supernatural men.

Recommend for people who like paranormal romance with erotic sex scenes.

This book featured a former Navy Seal named Remy Begnaud who seemed to have a connection with the weather. It scared his father and the people in his Louisiana community thought he was cursed and evil. An agency similar to the X-men, ACRO (Agency for Covert Rare Operatives) wanted Remy to join them so they can harness his power and make sure it was used for good. They sent a parameterologist Haley Holmes to investigate his powers and then "bring him into the fold". What Haley wasn't counting on was that the weather brought out Remy's sexual nature, and Haley found herself caught in the middle of the "storm". It was a very erotic ride and I enjoyed it. It wasn't sex for the sake of sex, it fit into the story. It really felt like I was reading an episode of X-Men, which I love. The writing wasn't crass and it wasn't slow. I read the book in less than two days. I look forward to reading book 2 and learning more about both ARCO and their evil counterpart ITOR.

To say Ex-navy SEAL Remy Benaud is a force of nature would be an understatement. Remy is nature, he doesn't understand his gift, all he knows is that under certain circumstances he attracts weather systems and storms gain strength around him. It is because of this extraordinary power that Remy comes to the attention of ACRO. Following an unexpected phone call from his father, Remy is lured to his childhood home on the Louisiana bayou. He enters his house to find Haley Holmes has taken up residence and his father is nowhere to be found. Remy is naturally suspicious of Haley's story as to why she is there and uses his Navy SEAL training as an interrogator to gradually ferret out what her real motivations are.

Haley is a brilliant, career driven parameterologist and ACRO agent who is dispatched to Remy's home to ascertain if he actually does have the power to control the weather and if so to lure him into the ACRO fold. Haley is a scientist whose fascination with the weather is grounded in scientific fact. She does not believe Remy has the ability to draw and control weather systems and she sets out to prove it to herself and ACRO.

When Remy attracts a storm it causes what can only be described as a cataclysmic need for sensual release. As a scientist Haley is curious about Remy, however she is also inexorably drawn by his inherent sensuality and unspeakable power. There is a special link that this couple share and their union is dare I say explosive?

Haley is in a race against time, her agency wants swift results and another covert group of operatives, which is the antithesis of ACRO bent capturing Remy is closing in. The action is non-stop and the plot is full of twists and turns making for an exciting page turning read.
