Series: Hurricane 1.5
Author: Jenna-Lynne Duncan
November 23, 2012
I was lucky enough to have read and reviewed Hurricane for Jenna-Lynne back in September of 2011. I've been not-so-patiently waiting for the sequel. I fell in love with Adriana, the strong and accepting heroine, and her two heros - Hayden and Luke Boudreaux. To say I was ecstatic when asked to review this novella is an understatement.
Tempest takes place during the time of Hurricane, only told from Hayden's point-of-view. I love getting to know characters on a personal level, and Tempest did just that. Hayden knows what he's supposed to do, but then he realizes he absolutely cannot follow through on a task that would free his entire family from a curse which had plagued them for centuries. He's found his one. His only one and nothing's coming between them, unless Luke...well, you need to read the books to answer that question.
I've always been fascinated by New Orleans, Voodoo, and Mardi Gras. Okay, the Voodoo fascination is in relation to fictional reading only, to tell the truth, it freaks me out just a tad bit; but I'd love to visit New Orleans during Mardi Gras. The first novel, Hurricane, transported me there. I lived the culture and became quickly fascinated with everything surrounding Hurricane Katrina. The erratic weather, the fear of being trapped, the heartache of losing everything. Tempest doesn't go as in depth but I loved it just the same.
What did I love most about this little novella? The interactions between Hayden and Luke. You don't only get to know Hayden better, but Luke also. You find out what drives his actions from start to finish. Much of the major storyline is bypassed, so I suggest you read Hurricane first, then move right on to Tempest!
