From the publisher’s site:
They met in a steamy Florida bar—then spent a night of mind-bending passion. Two secret agents who each possess unique telekinetic gifts—and whose combined sexual powers leave neither of them unscathed. For ex-Navy SEAL Wyatt Kennedy, assigned by the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives to the most treacherous mission of his career, the woman in black leather and lace has just become more than a one-night stand. Because Faith Black is the sole barrier to the success of his mission—and not even Wyatt’s legendary seduction skills can penetrate her deep cover.
Faith’s psychic gifts make her one of the world’s most dangerous women—but she hides a secret pain she shares with no one. Until Wyatt. And Faith has an agenda of her own: using her unique powers to save someone close to her—a move that pits her against a man she thought she’d never see again. For as a deadly hurricane is unleashed across the eastern seaboard, desire reignites between Faith and Wyatt, exposing secrets that thrust them both into harm’s way. With the hurricane sweeping closer—and their erotic hunger for each other growing—these two wary hearts must come together to heal, to trust . . . and to harness the power of a storm that could consume everything in its path.

My thoughts:
Agent Wyatt Kennedy is a telekinetic with the ability to seduce without ever physically touching the intended target. It’s a handy skill in his job for ACRO and one he’s good at. When he’s sent on a mission to stop and destroy the weather machine that their nemesis is using, the last thing he expects is to fall for a woman. Especially a woman like Faith, who has similar goals and a talent of her own that she’s willing to use to ensure that she walks away the winner.

The story that Faith Black tells is that she’s a free agent, working on her own for those willing to pay for her time and skills. That’s not entirely true, but she’s a wild card and possible danger to Wyatt and his mission. For Faith this job is personal, because if she fails and returns empty handed someone’s sure to pay the price.

This is the third installment in the ACRO series, and like its predecessors it will keep readers glued to every erotically action-packed page. It’s easy to see how well Sydney Croft works as a creative team. The authors build a world populated by strong characters with extrasensory gifts and they reveal just enough weakness to keep them believably human. With thrilling adventure, turmoil and danger behind every door, the agents of ACRO make Seduced by the Storm the most passionate to date.
