Overview

Her powers could save her island…or bring their love crashing down.

Hawaiian Heroes, Book 4

Despite her successful career, Lalei Kai-Ho’omalu has always considered herself mere decoration in a dynamic Hawaiian family, with none of their powerful gifts. Destined for life in the background as a useless, upper-crust wife.

Desperate to escape her mother’s latest matchmaking attempt, Lalei acts on her sizzling attraction to a guest at her cousin’s island wedding, making him a bold offer he can’t refuse.

A no-strings, no-holds-barred affair on Nawea Bay with the sexy Hawaiian beauty is just the break California Realtor Jack Nord needs from his fast-paced career—and an inner darkness he’d like to forget. Just for a while.

Their very public liaison is the shocking declaration of independence Lalei intended—with unintended consequences. Stirred to anger by developers set on carving her family’s unspoiled ancestral lands into a resort, Lalei discovers she has the supernatural power to stop them.

But when Jack learns his lover can bring down the rain and throw bolts of lightning, whose side will he take? The money-making machine? Or the woman born to protect her island home?

Warning: A wahine whose real estate may be too hot to handle, and a Realtor who’s determined to seal the deal.

It has been the blessing/curse of the Ho’omalu ohana (family) to serve as the protectors of the Hawaiian Islands.  They have served in this capacity for a long time in a lot of different ways.   Cousin Lalei Kai-Ho’omalu has come to Nawea for Daniel and Claire’s (Rolling in the Deep, Hawaiian Heroes #2) wedding.  She has always felt like the outsider in the closely knit family.  Her mother is a socialite widow whose financial stability has suffered in these rough times and she wants to Lalei to marry well so she can continue to live the she has become accustomed to it doesn’t really matter what Lalei wants.  Lalei has been the good daughter up to now but the man her mother wants her to marry makes her skin crawl.   California Realtor Jack Nord played football with David, Daniel, and Malu and has come for the wedding.  He has seen Lalei at other Ho’omalu functions and thought she was the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, also a bit stuck up.  When Lalei offers no strings sex he isn’t about to turn her down even though she is just using him to get rid of the guy her mother wants her to marry.   While visiting Jack and Lalei learn that developers are trying to carve up Ho’omalu lands for a new resort and using unscrupulous means to do so.  So angered by this Lalei comes into her powers as a guardian and uses them to delay the developers while the rest of the family attempts to get an injunction against the developers. Jack finds himself falling for the Hawaiian warrior woman hidden inside Lalei.  But is he going to be able to handle a woman who can throw lightning?   I adore this unique series.  Lots of hunky Hawaiian men, beautiful wahines, and exotic scenery.  This steamy installment has a lot going on not the least of which is Lalei growing into her skin as a person and a guardian.  I look forward to future  Hawaiian Heroes.
