Overview

An epic struggle for dominance is ravaging the Isle of Skye. And in its midst, a man and a woman are locked together by fate-and fantasy. . .

Odious though it is, Isabel knows what she must do: go to the one known as the Healer, seduce him, and recruit him to her power-hungry stepfather's cause. If she refuses, her innocent young sister will pay the terrible price of her disobedience. Yet after just one night with the man she must manipulate, it is clear to Isabel that even if she succeeds, the deceit will not leave her unscathed. For in the healer's powerful arms, her heart is lost forever. . .

Duncan of Skye knows there are those who would use his unusual gift for their own selfish gain. Even so, he yearns to trust the beautiful temptress who warms his bed and fills him with insatiable passion. And when he must choose between her future and his own, he may have to risk everything-even his life. . .

"Boldly sensual and richly emotional." -Booklist on A Storm of Passion

"A passionate and powerful page-turner!" --New York Times Bestselling Author Teresa Medeiros

Publishers Weekly
Brisbin's fourth Storm paranormal historical (after 2010's A Storm of Pleasure) conjures up mythical elements of 11th-century Scotland. Isabel is forced by her stepfather, Sigurd, to prostitute herself as protection for her sister, Thora. When Duncan, a powerful landowner, meets Isabel, he's shocked to realize he can feel her touch despite being afflicted with a power that dulls his senses. Isabel travels with Duncan to his home and finds that keeping her distance from him is nearly impossible as he seeks to learn more about the woman within the emotional walls. After Isabel witnesses his healing powers and the toll they take on him, she becomes conflicted about her duty to spy on Duncan at Sigurd's request. Frequent, explicit love scenes and emotional turmoil lend drama en route to a powerfully moving conclusion. (July)

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.
