Review - Wicked Wind and Wicked Waves by Sharon Kay

Wicked Wind (Solsti Prophecy 1)
By Sharon Kay


Born with the ability to command the wind, Nicole Bonham spends her life hiding her gift. Deciding to take control of her power, she dispenses her own brand of vigilante justice in Chicago’s worst neighborhoods. Stealth and surprise are always on her side.


Lash demon Gunnar prowls Earth and several supernatural realms to help maintain peace among the immortal species. His chance encounter with Nicole creates a hurricane of sparks between them, and he can’t let her out of his sight until he discovers her true identity. In his two hundred years, he has never seen a creature like her.


Nicole and Gunnar race to discover who - or what - is stabbing the city's most destitute residents and stealing their blood. The fire that forged their bond explodes into white-hot passion, weaving their souls together on an unexpected level. Haunted by the past, Gunnar's fiercely protective instincts battle with her need to defeat the creatures she was born to fight. As they track the mastermind behind the attacks, will Nicole’s unique talent unwittingly send her straight into his lair?

My Review:

I really enjoyed this tale of a woman who has a special ability and decides to use it to protect the weak with her sister.  Nicole is a strong and courageous woman who finds out that there are scarier things in the world than drug dealers and petty criminals. Gunnar is a demon who also protect humans, only he fights the scary supernatural beings and tries to keep their existence a secret.  Nicole and Gunnar's relationship was so entertaining.  The sexual chemistry was intense and very hot.  I thought the story was very well written and the tale was so interestingly unique.  I never felt lost while reading it (some books that build new worlds can be very confusing) though I did get lost in it. If you want to read a romance that has humor, sexual chemistry and a whole world of interesting characters, I highly recommend this book.


Wicked Waves (Solsti Prophecy 2)
by Sharon Kay

Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth.

Kai's duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it. Females? They're drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.

Though the two of them mix like oil and water, Kai senses that beneath Brooke’s frosty exterior hides a vortex of simmering passion. He’s determined to thaw his ice princess.

Forced to work together in the immortal realm, they track a rogue Lash demon at the helm of a widespread kidnapping operation. All too soon, Kai’s dark past catches up to them. Time runs out as a second enemy, bent on revenge, vows to stop at nothing short of Brooke’s enslavement and Kai’s death. As they and their foes stalk each other in a demonic game of cat-and-mouse, will her evolving skills and their fledgling bond be enough to save them?

My Review:

This book takes place not long after "Wicked Wind" ended and is about Brooke, Nicole's sister.  Brooke can control water.  She is a strong and confident woman who wants only to help the demons protect humans and wishes to learn how to control her gift.  Kai is a demon with a secret past who is fascinated by Brooke but because of a misunderstanding (and pride) can't be in the same room with her without antagonizing her.  These two definitely have a sexual chemistry beneath all the barbs.  I love the byplay between these two very strong people, especially as they go on a quest together in the demon world.  This tale was very well written and entertaining.  It is full of sexual heat, demons, adventure and more interesting characters (some I am hoping get their own stories)!  I do recommend that "Wicked Wind" be read first to fully appreciate and enjoy this book and I know you will love that book just as much as this one.
