Force of Nature is classified as a paranormal romance. The book opens with Markey Neville enjoying the breath-taking fall scenery in Roanoke, New York. Here is a woman who seems to be at peace with her surroundings. Immediately, the reader is jolted out of this calm and beautiful space by a disturbing flashback from Markey's past. Three years before the book begins, Markey and two friends were attacked by gang members in a dark alley during a night out. Through the flashback, the reader learns that Markey has the ability to manipulate the air and she fuels this ability with anger. Even though she saves her friends from harm, they call her a freak. It is because of this incident that Markey has moved to Roanoke to start fresh. Markey's peace does not last long, however. During a trip to the bank to cash her first check at her new job, the bank she has chosen gets robbed. Markey tries her best not to lose control, but the bank robbers' brutal treatment of an old man and a young mother creates an anger so intense that the power physically hurts to keep contained.
Enter Trip Lindaur who steps into the center of Markey's hurricane and helps her gain control of her power and direct it for the first time. Afterward, Trip takes Markey home and watches out for her. He is the first person not to call her a freak, but a “force of nature.” Trip tells Markey that he knows someone who can help her gain control of her gift and takes her to Thorton and his side-kick Jesse who perform their work in a large white building surrounded by a razor-wire fence. Trip is leery about leaving Markey alone, but he promises himself he will return to check on her...
From the very beginning, Robin Leigh Miller creates action-packed suspense and this intensity does not let up until the very last page. The book is a fantastic blend of paranormal action and romance; the romantic interactions do not detract from the suspense, but rather accentuate the urgency and terror for both characters when they are faced with their separate demons. From start to finish, this book will not disappoint!
