Candy has inherited an expensive piece of real estate, but she doesn't wish to sell her home even though she is struggling to make ends meet. All she cares about are her animals.

Neil wants to build a resort on Candy's property, and has offered her huge amounts of money for it. Candy's father warned her not to trust Neil, and she will do all she can to avoid him getting his hands on her property.

Then a hurricane hits, and when Neil checks on his neighbour, he feels compelled to save her from her

An unexpected partnership.

A young woman that has grown up with all the wrong answers and ideas. It is real tough on a child when you are brought up with lies. To be deceived and misguided about how others think about you. The mis-guiding that has you believe that others think less of you and more about their personal gain.
It isn't always the way it seems.

Neil Friessen was a well engineered bulk of a man. He is a wise, courageous, business orientated cowboy. He has his eyes on a very nice piece

I have become a huge fan of this author and this story just reinforced that feeling.
Though this story takes us to Yucatán peninsula, the main character, Neil, is truly a Freissen in his actions and his view of “his woman”. Little did he realize he was going to have to work overtime to get Candy McRae to see things his way.
While wealthy Neil has been trying to purchase Candy’s property in Mexico so he built a multi-million dollar resort , Cindy can barely make ends meet . She lives in a rundown

I've found myself drawn into this series by accident with a free book. And I've ended up buying the series so far and are about to read the rest. There are a couple of sticking points for me as I've always thought writers did research before writing or maybe I'm just wrong but I've been told you should never keep horses with donkeys because they carry lung worm and the baby donkey if two weeks old wouldn't even have teeth yet to even eat grass sorry just saying. I like to read fiction b

I really enjoyed this book. Lots of surprises. And leaving the reader wanting to see answers and what the next challenge is. The characters are real and interesting I like the compassion expressed.

Having lived through several hurricanes (cyclones in this country) I thought the description of the hurricane, the damage it caused, etc were very well done.

Enjoyed the book and series. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

I received an author’s copy and have left an honest review

A hurricane is coming and Candy's place right on the beach is in a direct line with it. Neil Friessen has craved Candy for ages but she won't have anything to do with him. Her father told her terrible and untrue things about Neil which she believes. A hurricane. A baby donkey. Three beautiful horses. A very handsome man. A mountain of debt. A bad fall. Injured horses. And love.

A well written book however, the heroine Candy is weak and sometimes very irritating. I prefer my heroine's smart and strong. That said, Candy and Neil make a good match as he is very patient and willing to sacrifice himself for her. If you like books with lots of angst and challenges for a potential love match, you will enjoy this one. ...more

In this book we see the start of Candy and Neil's relationship. Two people from completely different backgrounds whether a destructive storm and find love at the end. There was lots of action, adventure, romance and emotion. It is a good foundation for the the couple's next book, 'The Wedding'. ...more

Neil Friessen is a good guy, the one out of his three brothers who stays calm in a crisis. He's the one who always gives the women in his family the benefit of the doubt and sticks up for them against the other males.
In "The Unexpected Storm", I'm afraid Neil has met his match in Candy. She is the most aggravating female he has ever met. Slaps his face, gives him the cold shoulder and walks away from him every time she sees him. Until a terrible hurricane catches her unaware and she's pinned do

This is another great book in this series. Throughout reading the books, Neil has been my favorite brother. While Brad and Jed have the macho thing going, he is the fun and thoughtful good guy. He did not change in this book. Candy, on the other hand seemed to be an immature hot head and somewhat unreasonable. She believed everything her father had told her about Neil in spite of the fact he was an alcoholic, lost everything he owned and treated her horribly. On the other hand, Neil treated her ...more

The "heroine" was stubborn, jumped to conclusions, and too stupid to live on several occasions. The "hero" was keeping secrets "for her own good" (bleh!) and also too stupid to live on some occasions. Like all of this authors "heroes" he equates bullying with being protective. ...more

Neil & Candy

Somewhat sad but also happy. Seems like Neil got the girl he wanted. Only sad that she had to lose everything for him to get it..

Just too Mills & Boone for comfort. Or is that Harlequin. Anyway, cliched, done before and relatively dull. I'm sure I've read something almost the same before. ...more
