Leesie Hunt has many rules: No kissing. No sex. No dating outside the Mormon faith. When Michael Walden?a deep-sea diver who lost his parents in a violent hurricane?arrives in town, Leesie sees someone who needs her. They fall for one another, even though his dreams are tied to the depths of the ocean and hers to salvation above. Will their intense chemistry be too strong to resist? Leesie and Michael must make the hardest choice of their lives: whether to follow their beliefs or their hearts. Readers will be swept away by this tale of forbidden romance told in online chats, Leesie?s chapbook poems, and Michael?s dive log. It?s as steamy as Twilight and just as clean.

I knew that this book was going to be a good one because I went through every single review on this book that I could find and all that did was fuel my desire to read this book. I'm so glad that ...
Taken By Storm was a book I had heard nothing but good things about. When I finally got my hands on a copy, I figured it wouldn't be able to live up to the hype about it. I was wrong and I wasn't disappointed at all by the book. Michael and Leesie were two completely different people. At the begi...
I can honestly say that I didn't expect to love Taken by Storm as much as I did, which is why I read it so long after it was released. I had heard mixed reviews and never found time to read it. When I saw that Morrison had a new book, Sing Me to Sleep, scheduled to be released in 2010 that I thought...
