This book was silly. It seems like the author was trying to write a book that would appeal to fans of as many genres as possible (romantic suspense, action and adventure, paranormal thriller, and even some Viking subplots) but the unfortunate result is a story that seems disjointed and contrived.
Tempest Storm is one of three psychic sisters. When she touches an object, she sees and feels the story and emotions of the object's previous owners, so she always wears gloves to make her life livable. The book opens with Tempest auditioning for Mission Impossible by rappelling into a window to steal a Viking brooch that her psychic sis and mother have been dreaming about. Unfortunately she is caught red handed by a man with whom she coincidentally had a one night stand with a year ago, and left abruptly the morning after. The man, Marcus Graystone, has the brooch that Tempest wants and Tempest has two things he wants: her psychic ability would allow him to finally identify his mother's killer, and he also wants some gloveless loving. The paranormal elements read like bad Kay Hooper, and the romantic parts are cheesy and not titillating at all.
This book is like a Lifetime movie - I knew it was bad, but it was entertainingly bad so I had to see it through to the end. I don't think I will be rushing to the bookstore to pick up the rest of the trilogy anytime soon though.
The Aisling-Bartel triplets are something else - all psychic to some degree. This is Tempest's story. Tempest is searching for a Viking brooch which holds some secret to her families past. The brooch is owned by Marcus Greystone, the man she had a one night stand with a year ago. The sparks fly between these two immediately as they are both strong personalities and neither will give way. When old evil returns to stalk Tempest, Marcus is there as her protector.
I really like these characters. The deep link between twins and triplets has always fascinated me. These three sisters have that going on as well as real psychic gifts. Their adventures are interesting but dragging out what evil is haunting them is driving me nuts.
