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 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.

In Scotland, Sigurd covets power; there is nothing this avaricouse individual would not do to gain more affluence. He even sells his stepdaughter Isabel to lairds or with connections willing to buy. She acquiesces to Sigurd's pimping her in return keeping her sister Thora safe from this abomination and his family business.

Sigurd's latest mark is Duncan a healer with ties to the king. Isabel stuns Duncan with her touch as he can feel it, which goes contrary to his otherworldly skills that always have diminished his senses. Duncan takes the whore to his holding to learn about the woman. She fears his kindness as men are nice when they want something. Watching him tenderly heal and seeing the aftermath of how much is taken out of her host, Isabel feels trapped as she is falling in love but must protect Thora even at the cost of her heart.

The fourth Storm paranormal medieval romance (see A Storm of Pleasure) is a terrific tale of good and evil; yet the key is the impact on innocent pawns. Action-packed in and out of the boudoir, fans will enjoy the war for Isabel's heart soul between the kind healer who she loves and the malevolent stepfather who she loathes as her sibling is the bait.

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.

Having LOVE, LOVE, LOVED! the first 2 books in this series, I waited with baited breath for this book. Unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. In the first 2 books I understood why the characters loved each other and how the relationships developed. I felt the characters hurts and thought what a different kind of romance from the usual drivel written these days. In this one I didn't get the connection between the two characters. I was so sick of everyone refering to the heroine as a "whore". This was constantly drilled into my head even by the heroine numerous times. What interested Duncan in her? Just the curse? She had no backbone and just seemed like a victim. It seemed as if the author was as bored in writing this as I was in reading it. I didn't get why Isabel just didn't kill Sigud and save her sister that way instead of whoring for him. After all she keeps saying she is going to kill herself anyway when her sister was safely married. I just didn't get the heroine's actions and why she did what she did. Check out the other 2 books but skip this one.
