Haley Holmes is a parameteorologist working for ACRO. She’s been sent undercover to evaluate Remy; a man they believe possesses the ability to control the weather. If they’re correct, the goal is to get Remy to sign on with ACRO where he can be trained to better control his talents. Haley’s job is to convince Remy that the people she works for have his best interests at heart, and she’ll use everything she’s learned to gain his trust. What she doesn’t take into account is the instant attraction she has for the powerful man or what that might mean for their future.

Remy Begnaud has just left the Navy SEALs after eight years and returned home to see his father. What he finds is a naked woman in his shower who claims to have rented the place from Remy senior. Trust doesn’t come easy, and Remy’s sure that Haley is up to more than checking out the strange local weather. When she finally comes clean about her mission it could be too little, too late. Caught between two groups who eagerly want the use of his abilities, Remy will have to fight for control and come to terms with Mother Nature if there’s any chance of coming out alive.

Riding the Storm is a sizzling paranormal thrill ride. Haley’s trained and confident in her mission, but when the lustful storm known as T-Remy blows in through the door everything changes. In this erotic paranormal tale, Sydney Croft builds an intriguing and detailed world drenched in the supernatural. Lust satisfies the need, passion fuels the want, but only a love filled heart will bring control. This fascinating group of characters will leave readers with plenty to look forward to in the next installment of the ACRO series.
