There is no surprise that this book was Winner of the 2001 Golden Quill Award in the Paranormal Romance category. Ms. Clark has a winning series in the Sons Of The Earth and Wind, and book #3 proves it’s just as fantastic as its predecessors!
Summer Morgana Starr is a very unique heroine with an incredible ability to ‘heal and restore the fiery lines of power deep in the earth’s crust’ (quote). Her uncanny talent brings suspicions of witchcraft against her, and even though it costs her a little more each time she uses her psychic ability, Summer (also a psychic sculptress) is a very selfless woman, compassionate, and giving. When her life is threatened by someone seeking revenge (for the death of his brother he claims she caused), Summer’s brother-in-law hires a security agent to protect her.
Michael Forest carries emotional baggage that has caused him to give up hope of love, marriage, and family. When he meets his ‘assignment’, he’s immediately attracted to Summer --- much to his dismay. His head knows there can never be anything between them, but his heart says different.
While Summer and Michael both realize they’re attracted to each other despite not wanting to be, danger stalks them. Summer’s foe will stop at nothing to gain his vengeance, and Michael has two very powerful enemies who want him dead.
Danger, intrigue, romance, suspense, paranormal elements, this book has it all. The incredibly sensuous love between Summer and Michael heat up the pages, making this a book you will not want to put down until finishing it!
As a reader fan and reviewer, I will gladly recommend this and all of Ms. Clark’s Sons Of The Earth And Wind series! Book #1 Tears of the Hawk
and Book #2 A Breath of Heather, are just as great. Look for Book #4 Deserts of The Heart, due out in January 2003. A definite ‘keeper’ that will be read many more times!
