Mar Brisas Resort was not only Nicole Whitaker's livelihood, but it is part of her heritage and is her life. Thanks to a hurricane and a badly worded insurance policy that cheated Nicole out of the much needed money to make repairs, Mar Brisas Resort is in bad shape and still losing business. With foreclosure at her door, Nicole is doing everything she can to keep the wolves away, her rooms filled and the doors open to her beloved resort.
Quinn McGrath is one of those wolves. Taking over the St. Joseph's project, Quinn finds himself spending time in Florida to seal the deal with the owner of Mar Brisas. But when he meets the beautiful Nicole, he finds he's found "the one" his Irish grandmother told him he would. Now Quinn is torn between landing the deal and getting the partnership at his company, or helping Nicole find a way to save her resort and being a part of her life forever.
Roxanne St. Claire's debut story for Silhouette Desire is phenomenal. Just like a hurricane, it will sweep you up and take you away. Not only do we get to drool over the very handsome, extremely buff Quinn, but we get introduced to his very yummy brothers. Colin and Cameron, an added benefit to the beautiful beach scenery that Ms. St. Claire takes us to in the book. This story shows us that even when your life already has a plan the right person could make you change it all. LIKE A HURRICANE is just the first book in the Desire line that we will be seeing from Ms. St. Claire. Make sure you check out Colin's story, THE FIRE STILL BURNS, coming out in September 2004.
