Storm Buchanan has a special talent for mind control and it comes in handy while working as an investigator for her uncle’s private agency.   She is able to persuade most people to do what she wants them to do.  Because Storm can force her will on any date and then she gets bored, knowing he is not functioning on his own.  That is, until she comes across Rafe Savage, who works for a competing agency….Westlake Enterprises.    

Rafael Savage, a former police officer, has worked as an agent for Westlake Enterprises for a few years.  He has become very comfortable with his co-workers, whose talents are mind control, foretelling the future and they show respect for his gifts.  When he runs across Storm, looking for the same stolen items, he surprises her, restrains her and she tries to uses her powers of persuasion on him.   Rafe tells her to stop trying to change his flow of thinking.  Little do they know how much they both will be affected in the near future by having to work together to stop the villain. 

I was a little thrown by the title Storming His Heart because of this story being suspense but after getting through a few chapters, I begin to understand the title better.  This is the second book in the Westlake Enterprises series, continuing from the first book with some of the main and secondary characters  The simple fact that the two companies doesn’t work well together and spy on each other bodes problems which may be detrimental to both.   

Again, Ms. Harte spins a very creative tale of murder, suspense and a villain who is determined to have his way, regardless of the damage done.  Our villain is a former employee of Westlake Enterprises and very gifted, with a lot of knowledge of his former co-workers.    

Rafe and Storm both have very strong personalities and show a vulnerable side as well.  These two characters had a positive connection that didn’t show until later in the book and was a real help when trouble arose for them.  I am not sure who I admired most since they both knew what they wanted and went after it until they achieved their goal.   

I am happy to say that this book is just as intriguing as the first one, and I am looking forward to reading the next story.  Read and enjoy.
