Iris Johansen's only excuse for these two novellas is that they were her first two books. In "Stormy Vows" the protagonist is obsessed with the lead lady and forces himself on her on more than one occasion. I could not understand how she could possibly fall in love with him. "Tempest at Sea" was only slightly better but both heroines were very young and the men were much older. I really shouldn't have finished this book,but I guess I just committed to it.
