Review: Shock Wave by Dana Mentink
Shock Wave (Stormswept Book 1) - Dana Mentink

Title: Shock Wave
Author: Dana Mentink
Series: Stormswept, 1
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars



When an earthquake rips through San Francisco, the last person journalist Sage Harrington expects to run into is ex-soldier Trey Black. After what they survived in Afghanistan, she doesn't know if she can face him again. But now they're trapped in the bowels of a ramshackle opera house on a mission to find Sage's missing cousin. And they may not be the only ones. Someone is desperate to keep them from discovering the truth. With time running out and devastation and danger all around, Sage and Trey must put their trust in each other to make it out alive. 

Stormswept: Finding true love in the midst of nature's fury.


Favourite character: Trey
Least favourite character: N/A


Mini-review: To be honest, I struggled a bit with this book at the beginning, and I think that was because of Sage's blind decisions to do stuff without thinking it through. Once she calmed down about halfway through the book, I enjoyed it a lot more and I can't wait to reread Antonia's story, as well as Dallas' story.

Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
Shock Wave (Stormswept Book 1) - Dana Mentink

Why can't Sage let Antonia go? She's willing to let a dog die and/or fend for himself, but she has to go stupidly after a woman she's not even sure is in the building? She could've left before all this happened. But, no, every single noise must be Antonia. Despite the fact that someone's obviously trying to kill them.

Stormswept - Sabrina Jeffries,Deborah Martin

This story was wonderful. I just adored Lady Juliana St. Albans. She was fun and feisty and had a hard time having to act like a proper lady. Even though she was English, she was intrigued by everything Welsh, which was suppose to be a lower class. Having followed her Welsh lady's maid, while dressed undercover to a Sons of Wales meeting, she is mesmerized by the main speaker, Rhys Vaughan and of course he is intrigued by her. Juliana and Rhys start spending more time together, and quickly fall in love and decide to elope. Their wedding night was wonderful to Juliana. It awoke certain feelings she never realized she even had. The only problem was in the morning, Rhys was gone and all of a sudden her brothers show up. Juliana spends the next six years waiting for him to return until she is told that he died on a ship. Juliana finally gives up and decides to marry Stephen Wyndham, the Marquess of Devon. At their engagement party, who should walk in by Rhys, coming to claim his wife! Rhys takes his wife back to his place convinced that she had something to do with his disappearance. I loved this part of the story. As the two of them still fought the attraction they had towards each other, they didn't trust each other. As the real story starts to unravel, they both come to realize things that neither of them actually knew. Juliana and Rhys were both strong, proud and loyal characters. I really enjoyed the ride they took to get to their happy ever after.

Review: Stormswept by Sabrina Jeffries writing as Deborah Martin
Stormswept - Sabrina Jeffries



I love a good second chance romance, and Stormswept is a passionate, compelling one. Rhys and Juliana’s story is one of love, betrayal, heartbreak, bitterness, and hope.

When they first meet, Rhys is a Welsh radical and the son of a disgraced squire and Juliana is a young English lady and the daughter of the man who stole Rhys’s family estate. The attraction is instantaneous and the two of them are so young and sweet you can’t help but smile as they fall in love. It’s their innocence – Juliana’s in particular – that is also their downfall, as Juliana’s brothers have Rhys impressed in the navy and she is manipulated into keeping her marriage a secret. I’m so glad we spend a significant amount of time with Juliana and Rhys when they were younger, because that brief happy period for them sets the foundation for the book and brings hope to the dark road ahead.

When Rhys returns six years later, he’s got vengeance on his mind and he blames Juliana for what was done to him. Rhys’s anger and his determination to believe the worst of Juliana makes the road to happily ever after turn into an uphill battle for our kind heroine. Juliana is sweet and generous, but she isn’t crushed by the force of her husband’s bitterness. She goes toe-to-toe with him, and can out-stubborn him when she needs to. Their battle of wills is tempered slightly by the attraction between them that neither can deny. It’s that passion, that great chemistry between them, that keeps Stormswept moving at a fast pace. Add in the infrequently seen (in historical romance) backdrop of Wales and the bits of Welsh history and poetry woven into the story, and I was hooked.

I’m a big fan of Sabrina Jeffries’s writing, so of course I was delighted to read this story, which was first published in 1995 when Ms. Jeffries was writing as Deborah Martin. I haven’t read the original, so I’m not sure how much was revised for this reissue, but the tone of this story is markedly different from Ms. Jeffries’s more modern works. Stormswept still has that 90s historical romance feel, with its darker, less endearing heroes, and I enjoyed the change of pace. I may never have adored Rhys, but I still thoroughly enjoyed his and Juliana’s romance. Stormswept is a rich, emotional read with interesting characters and a heroine you have to cheer on as she fights for the man she loves and the life they could have together. I thoroughly enjoyed Stormswept and I hope to read more of Ms. Jeffries’s Deborah Martin titles.
