After Dark Review of A Storm of Passion by Terri Brisbin

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: "In the first of a breathtaking trilogy set against the stark beauty of medieval Scotland, one man discovers a surprising past, a remarkable gift--and a terrible destiny. . . Once, Connor believed that his ability to see the future would grant him everything. Instead, it landed him in a prison of his own making. Summoned by the Lord of the Isles to serve as his counselor, Connor gains wealth and prestige, but with every vision, his own sight dims. Even so, Connor doesn't grasp the terrible consequences of his gift until he's wounded by a young woman who blames him for her family's massacre. Moira curses herself for failing to kill the Seer--especially when she learns her punishment is to be given to him as a slave. Far from the proud, arrogant tyrant she imagined, Connor is a tortured man with a dark sensuality that tempts her night after night. But freeing him from a strange power that is spiraling out of control will mean forsaking her vow and risking her heart for the one man she has sworn to destroy."

My Review: This was exactly the book I was in the mood to read. I great mix of historical romance, steamy heat and touches of magic. I really enjoyed the characters and learning their strengths and weaknesses. At times the story got a little drug out and we didn't get as much into the political intrigue as was occurring around the characters as I would have liked. I think that would have added more to the story. I did however find the conclusion to be very interesting and introduces the characters from the next books beautifully. I will definitely be adding those to my to be read list!
My Rating: A very interesting book, I wasn't expecting it to be all that it was and was very pleasantly surprised.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.
