Great chemistry between the MCs, Burke and Storm. I really liked both, she's very strong and smart and he knows exactly what she needs.

I had completely forgotten that I had a copy of Taken By Storm sitting on my bookshelves. I purchased this one years ago after having read and enjoyed Return of the Rogue by this author.

For some reason I though that Storm was going to be the hero in this story. I was looking forward to reading about a Highlander with a Scottish burr. I was wrong, Storm is actually the heroine and she is the one who is Scottish. She's the leader of a group of men who rescue and bring justice to those in need. On
Burke Longton is in Scotland to find his half-brother, Cullen and gets into trouble when he is accused of a crime he did not commit. He is Taken by Storm when a tiny woman, known as Storm leads a motley crew into the prison and executes an escape for him and several other prisoners. She agrees to help him find his brother and the adventure begins with lots of danger, suspense and romance that develops between the Scottish beauty and the brash American.

Taken by Storm is full of adventure, danger,

This books was a whole lotta meh. The language was flowery, but not ridiculously flowery enough to be entertaining. (view spoiler) because "OH NO NOT ENOUGH DRAMA" and "Oops, gotta make sure we can have a sequel!" I was also hoping for SO much more action than we got. Seriously. Just. Meh.

The heroine was too manish for men - abrupt to the point of rude when barking out commands.

Yah, I am a bit old fashioned, but I like those historical stories where women are women and men are men.
Cute read. Some of the dialogue was repetitive and stupid but I liked the story. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars. Wouldn't be a keeper for me though.
