    Three times the excitement!

    Man against nature is a fascinating subject, and these three talented writers will keep you turning the pages with their heroic tales involving some of nature¿s most volatile and unpredictable weather. Lori Foster brings us a story of Liv and Hamilton, two people meant to be together, despite their different beliefs about life in the military. Liv grew up with distant, cold memories of her family because of her father's military career, and is determined not to follow that path for herself, even if it means she can¿t be with the man she loves. Ham is just as determined that Liv is the woman for him, but will having her mean he must give up the career, the life, he belongs to? When a deadly tornado puts them in danger, will Liv be able to let go of the past and let herself be happy with the man of her dreams, who happens to be career military? Ms. Foster tugs at your heartstrings with this emotional journey of the heart. Cooper and Marty are fearless storm chasers who¿ve worked together in the past, even experiencing a passionate interlude while seeking shelter from a deadly twister, a fierce force of nature that calls to their adventurous spirits like a siren song. After the encounter, they both go their separate ways, believing they are each at different points in their lives. The wedding of a mutual friend brings Cooper and Marty back to a familiar place, yet they never expected to see each other under the same exact circumstances ¿seeking shelter from a deadly tornado. This time, will they make it out alive, and if so, will it be so easy to walk away from each other? Wyatt and Leah were high school sweethearts, and Wyatt believed that they would be together forever, until Leah decides to leave smalltown life for the excitement of the big city. When Leah returns years later, this time back to stay, Wyatt can¿t help but feel resentful of the way she waltzes back into his life so easily, like she never broke his heart. But when a deadly storm strands them on a houseboat, Wyatt realizes he¿s never stopped loving her, and can think of only getting them out alive so he can spend the rest of his life proving it to her. Lori Foster, Donna Kauffman and Jill Shalvis delight with their heartfelt writing, wonderfully capturing the essence of some truly brave heroes and heroines. Whether in the military or some other dangerous occupation, heroes are all around us.

    Love these heroes

    In AN HONORABLE MAN, LORI FOSTER delves deep into the heart and soul of a soldier and the woman who, by loving him, must understand that special love he has for his country. School teacher Liz Avery grew up hating the military life thanks to a father who always put his career and the welfare of his country above that of his wife and daughter. She has been in love with Lieutenant Colonel Hamilton Wulf as long as she can remember. Even though she knows he also has special feelings for her she refused to pursue them vowing to never get involved with a military man. Hamilton, however, has vows of his own to keep and they include convincing the one woman that he has always loved that they can have a life together as long as she is willing to compromise . . . but is she? In BLOWN AWAY, DONNA KAUFFMAN puts two friends who have not seen each other in six years in a very dangerous life threatening situation. The last time that Cooper Harrison and Marty McKenna were together was on her graduation day. It was the day that they witnessed and filmed one of the worst tornadoes in history. It was also the day they made love with a passion that matched the storm they witnessed. They are both headed to a wedding of an old friend when once again Mother Nature stirs up the skies and the passion between these two very compelling characters. Will there be sunshine after the storm for Cooper and Marty? The third story in this anthology is PERILOUS WATERS by JILL SHALVIS. Reporter Lea Taylor knows that when she returns to the town of her childhood she will be facing Wyatt Stone, the man that she walked away from when she was eighteen. When Lea and Wyatt are forced to ride out a storm together on a houseboat in the middle of the lake she realizes that if forgiveness and hopefully a future is to be had between them she must make him understand both why she had to leave AND why she had to return. Living in an area where tornadoes can pop up any time I can attest to the fact that the three ladies did a fantastic job with this book. Not only can you experience the passionate emotions of their love but you can feel the heart pounding gripping terror of being in the middle of one of Mother Nature¿s most vicious storms.

    three fine Buckeye State stormy second chance romances

    ¿An Honorable Man¿ by Lori Foster. In Ohio Lieutenant Colonel Hamilton Wulf informs school teacher Liv Amery that her father died from a heart attack. Ham knows he loves Liv, but regrets his misunderstanding the terrain as he assumed since she was a military brat she would have no trouble with his career. Liv loves Ham, but has felt alone all her life and being a military spouse means more loneliness; Ham has a tough campaign ahead of him but a tornado gives him a chance as they share shelter together.--- ¿Blown Away¿ by Donna Kauffman. Six years ago tornado observers Marty Mckenna and Cooper Harrison shared a night of passion wilder than any storm either have seen; the next morning they went there separate ways. Now Marty and Cooper are following the same tornado near Cincinnati, but this time he plans to never let go of the woman he loves.--- ¿Perilous Waters¿ by Jill Shalvis. Helicopter pilot Wyatt Stone fears nothing except the female traffic reporter he is currently flying over Denton, Ohio. Ten years ago he fell in love with Leah Taylor, but she broke his heart when she left him to pursue her dreams. When they are stranded together with a tornado bearing down on them, Wyatt realizes he still loves Leah, but fears a broken heart again.--- These three Buckeye State stormy second chance romances are terrific exhilarating tales filled with action-packed passionate stories in which the storms of the heart are as wild as those in the sky.--- Harriet Klausner
