Wicked Wind (Solsti Prophecy, #1)
by Sharon Kay
Nicole Bonham has a special gift. She can alter the wind, creating disturbances in temperature and the surrounding environment. She has never understood where her gift came from, or its purpose. Having lost her parents at a young age, she has always felt a little out of place in the world. Still, anchored to the earth with her sisters, and their equally unusual talents, she has been attempting to live the life of a normal young woman. But as night falls, Nicole's interests are anything but normal. And as she and her sister, Brooke, are exploring the darkest nooks of Chicago's vast underbelly, she is unaware that she is being observed and pursued by the Lash demon, Gunnar. A formidable alpha male, Gunnar finally makes his move to approach Nicole ... and her life will never be the same.
Wicked Wind is an incredibly well written tale. With a fresh perspective and a whirlwind plot, this was a brilliant paranormal tale with a twist! Characters with depth and range filled the pages--some were lovable, while others were loathsome, but all offered meaningful contributions to the story! And I loved the story! Gunnar epitomized the role of an alpha male with shiny dark hair, and crystal blue eyes ... swoon! I loved this guy! And his protective nature was breathtaking. As for his female counterpart, Nicole, she was an ass-kicking female lead, with plenty of quirks and flaws, making her an awesome match for the fearsome and gorgeous Gunnar.
A brilliant story! I loved this book, and can't wait for the next installment in the series!

Kelli and I both wanted to read this sizzling hot book! Here is her take on it:
I read all through the night and woke up wanting to start reading again. I am so happy to have a book to gush about after a bit of a dry spell. I have to say, I love the paranormal lead men! They are so swoon worthy, haha! Seriously, really I mean it. And the lead female held her own, too. No simpering females here!
Gunnar and Nicole both acknowledge an intense attraction to one another that they act upon at once! How refreshing, none of this "Oh no, really, I shouldn't". They realize they can't keep their hands off of each other, so they don't. The result? Super hot passion, off the charts! This is the first book in a series, and I say, "bring them on!" Not only is it a steamy read, but a great story with well developed characters and believable parallel worlds. I loved it!
