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 divorce, lies, secrets, cheating spouses, and abandonment, all three people do not seek love or relationship.

As they move into and through the emotional storm of their lives, however, 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 lifts the characters’ spirits and helps them on their journeys. Their passionate triangle must be broken for them to move on with their lives, but who ends up with whom, or do they, and when?


It had been a 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 and his dark places illuminate. His soul churned 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. Gabe heard them equally. The angel’s voice urged him to be genuine 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 her, 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. Gabe 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.

Jade sensed the electricity in the air between them. She’d never experienced such charged energy with any man. Was it his technique, his charm, his sexiness? No—she had experienced those things before and they eventually wore off. What he had was unusual, deep and directly connected to the same elements in her. It was physically impossible to back away from his lips on her cheek.

She turned her mouth toward his, giving him the answer he wanted. He kissed her so softly, with lips warm and luscious. She melted under his spell, a merging of body and emotions that would linger into tomorrow leaving a swath of desire.

What I love most about the holiday season:

“Peace on earth, good will to men” – this is what I love most—the spirit of the season—the feeling in the air of peace, love, compassion, generosity, surprise, joy. Everyone seems happier, lighter, in a congenial mood to talk, laugh, party and be good to one another. People tend to think more about others’ needs and wishes than their own. I love this, and all the ways we express it.

Why is your featured book a must-read to get you in the holiday mood?

Heart Storms is set in a small oceanfront town in a Victorian-style Bed & Breakfast Inn which is charming enough by itself. But a pivotal part of the story takes place through the holiday season. Christmas and New Years are highlighted—the inn is adorned with classic Christmas decorations and a huge tree in the foyer. Festive lights and an outdoor fireplace embellish the inside & out. And throughout both holiday celebrations, the restaurant in the story features traditional Southern dishes and drinks. Everywhere around town, romantic holiday scenes play out under the lights, candles, stars and the sounds of the ocean—sure to put you in the holiday mood.
