Seduced by the Storm by Sydney Croft

If you love action, suspense, intrigue, mystery and hot erotic romance, than the latest in Sydney Croft’s ACRO series is definitely the book for you! Seduced by the Storm is the third book released in the series, and it is action packed with all of the above qualities. I also realized belatedly that Sydney Croft is also Larissa Ione, whose Demonica Series is also worth checking out! Now, on to the story…

Wyatt Kennedy is an ex-Navy SEAL that now works as an Agent with the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives a.k.a. ACRO. He has the power of Telekinesis as well as an ability to seduce anyone by releasing highly potent pheromones. Wyatt is fiercely loyal to ACRO and while on a mission to destroy a computer that can cause terrifying weather phenomenon he meets Faith Black. Faith is also an agent, however she works for a different agency. One based in England and one that not even ACRO knows about. Her mission is to steal the same computer that Wyatt is sent to destroy, however, neither of them knows about the other…

Wyatt and Faith meet in a bar one evening while on the same mission and have an instant connection. They share a night of passionate romance that seems like something more than just a one-night stand. Wyatt’s powers however, keep anyone from remembering sex with him after it happens, so when he runs into Faith the next day, and she remembers him, Wyatt knows there is something “special” about her. The two of them embark on a mission together, slowly falling for each other while both trying to do the right thing for their Agencies. Can they manage to work together without falling in love, or worse, perhaps even killing each other?

Seduced by the Storm is exceptionally steamy AND well written. I also love a side story going on between two other operatives- Annika and Creed. This was almost like two love stories in one book! I enjoyed the amount of suspense and action that carried through until the end. The story didn’t lose steam as it went on; in fact I think it gained momentum. Wyatt and Faith’s relationship builds as the story progresses and I couldn’t help but root for them the entire time. There were definitely some angst-worthy moments that kept me reading long after I should have been in bed! This was a very satisfying installment of the ACRO series by Sydney Croft, and I cant wait for “Taming the Fire” which is the fourth book in the series and is scheduled to be released in the Summer of 2009.
