In a sensual, emotionally charged novel of love and loss, a tender affair gives two daring storm chasers the strength to overcome shattered dreams and the courage to build a future together.

Drew McGovern is living for two. Her fiancé, Colby, used to savor the feeling of a powerful gale, the rain pelting his face as the sky grew dark—until a shocking tragedy struck him down. Drew’s still grieving his death a year later when she bumps into some of his old storm chasing buddies. For reasons she can’t explain, she volunteers for the next tornado. But when she reconnects with Colby’s best friend, Aiden O’Neal, Drew gets a breath of fresh air that stirs the ashes of her broken heart.

Aiden doesn’t trust himself around Drew. He’s wanted this girl for a long time—long enough to remember the stab of jealousy he felt the first time he saw her in Colby’s arms, long enough to remember the tears that fell as they buried the man they each still miss. Now he’s trying his best to behave himself. But when the wind ruffles Drew’s hair and puts a sparkle in her eye, Aiden can’t resist the urge to hold her close. And when it comes to true love, he’s holding out hope that lightning strikes twice.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

After the tragic loss of her fiance and feeling like she needed to explore a different path in her life, Drew McGovern gets an offer she can't refuse. Her former fiance's storm chaser team wants her to travel with them for a period of time.

Aiden is a member of the team and was Drew's fiance's good friend. The problem with Aiden is that he's been attracted to Drew for a long time, and with the memory of his friend still fresh in his mind, being close to Drew won't be easy.

I adored Drew, she was a strong willed, strong minded girl who did what she had to do to provide a better future for herself and her siblings. I admired her for going after what she wanted without looking back. My heart broke for her when she was confronted with the sudden death of the man she was going to spend the rest of her life with, seeing all her hopes and dreams for her future died with him was heartbreaking. Aiden was a stand up guy, his internal conflict about betraying his friend by finally giving up his desire for Drew was endearing to me. They were both very likeable, relatable characters with great chemistry. And when it comes to secondary characters Tex and Dot made me laugh out loud adding a touch of humor to the story.

When it came to describing the storms the team was chasing, the author did a great job writing said scenes, they seemed vivid to me, transporting the reader to the middle of the action.

With some heat thrown in for good measure between Drew and Aiden, storm chasing has never been this sexy.
