Heart Storms by @ncsamuelson is a Beach Reads Event pick #romance #beachreads #giveaway


Author: N. Christine Samuelson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Blurb:

Three people’s lives collide in a perfect storm of heartbreak and ruin, betrayal and love. One woman and two men are drawn to coastal South Carolina to an oceanfront Victorian B & B inn. With losses from lies, secrets, cheating spouses, racism, divorce and abandonment, the last thing all three characters want is love or relationship.

However, as they move into and through the emotional storm of their lives, destiny brings them together in an extraordinary way. But will they be destroyed or transformed by their fates?

An enchanting seaside inn complete with mystical elements inspires the characters’ lives, and helps them on their journeys. Their passionate triangle must be broken for them to move on, but who ends up with whom, or do they, and when?


It had been a very long time since Gabriel shared details of his life with anyone, let alone a woman. But it felt right with Jade. Even more so, as thunder shook the heavens outside and lightning blazed over the ocean, Gabe felt his insides rattle, his dark places illuminate, and his soul churning until his secrets strained to be let out to someone he could trust.

Now the devil’s and the angel’s voices on both shoulders rang out in unison, each trying to drown the other out. But Gabe heard them equally. The angel’s voice urged him to be genuine, caring and honest—because with telling the truth he’d never be sorry. The devil’s voice told him to lie to look good, then seduce and lust after her, then let her go and if he didn’t, he’d be sorry. But with the devil’s words came the glare of lightning, and thunder growled over the bar shaking Gabe to his core.

Rain poured down in sheets and Gabe knew he didn’t want his life to be an eternal storm, forever threatened with disaster. He wanted his life to be the way he felt inside this room—safe and warm with a beautiful, caring woman to share it with. It was time to listen to the good angel, and so the story of Gabriel Montoro poured out of him as profusely as the rain from above.
