I liked this one.

The World building was awesome, the characters where good. It was an enjoyable read, but I don't feel compelled to go right into book two at this point. I didn't particularly like Kai in book one. I'm sure i'll go back to this series at some point though! :)
2.5 stars

This book had elements that should have really worked for me. But for some reason I had a really hard time getting into and staying with this book. I cannot identify why, so I cannot issue any warnings per se. I think the author's writing just did not draw me in for whatever reason so I struggled to finish.

That being said, this was still a solid PNR with a complex, yet understandable world, a strong bond between the Hero and heroine, lots (and lots) of steamy, sexy scenes and some good

Refreshingly unique, Wicked Wind blows away traditional paranormal romance!

As if a handful of sexy warrior demons isn't enough, this book also delivers the kickass female lead! From page one, I wanted to be Nicole! The gorgeous Solsti who has the power to control the wind. She and her sister take to the city streets to pound on drug dealers and pimps. I was sucked into the book immediately. But it's the moment when this tough girl meets her match in demon warrior Gunnar, and the pages practical

Nicole's power to control the wind swept me up and carried me to a land of sexy demons and a kick ass heroine. If you love paranormal romance, you are sure to love this story. Wicked Wind hooks you from the start and keeps you there. Honestly it's hard to put down.

The way Gunnar and Nicole meet is unique, funny and down right steamy. Their relationship takes your heart on a wild ride of up's and downs and around hidden curves. I never knew what was going to happen next, when I thought it was g

One of the things I love about PNR is that it's a complete escape from reality. You literally leave your own world and enter another where the rules have changed, the "people" are different, the possibilities & plot twists are endless. I'm always amazed by the imaginations of these writers who can so craftily create the most amazing characters, scenery, and over all engaging reading experience. Ms. Kay fits right into this grouping. Many times while reading I noticed how her writing style remind ...more

Nicole Bonham has a special gift. She can alter the wind, creating disturbances in temperature and the surrounding environment. She has never understood where her gift came from, or its purpose. Having lost her parents at a young age, she has always felt a little out of place in the world. Still, anchored to the earth with her sisters, and their equally unusual talents, she has been attempting to live the life of a normal young woman. But as night falls, Nicole's interests are anything but norma ...more

Rating: 4.5 rounded up to 5

This was quite an intriguing read. The opening introduced us to the butt kicking heroines, sisters Nicole and Brooke, and the unfolding events from there just kept me riveted to the pages. I stayed up all night to read this and finished in just over five hours. The world building was also quite interesting. I didn't have any difficulty picturing the surroundings the characters found themselves in. This story took place on both Earth and the demon realm, Torth, in equal

Wicked Wind was a slightly different take on the paranormal world. With so many books out about Demons and so on, sometimes books feel the same. It’s up to the author to really create a world that’s different from the others, even if some of it is the same. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this one. In the beginning I was slightly worried but things picked up, leaving me hooked to the end.

I loved this book. It had so many twists and turns and surprises! I always try to find something to compare books to for others to make it easier to decide if they'd be interested. The closest series would have to be the Immortals After Dark... there are immortals, mostly demons... mabye the Demonica series.

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank Sharon Kay, author of Wicked Wind, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this wonderful book of hers.

This story is really A+, I loved the concept and the well though plot and unique story line. To me this story line is unique because here the author introduced two different dimensions which made the story very intriguing and totally swoon worthy and secondly

I realize now that most of the books that I have been reading lately have been amazing, and I’ve loved every single one of them. Wicked Wind included. I guess I just get lucky with the ARC’s that I gain because this book is also being added to my favorite list. I’m super happy that there will be more books, and my thinking is that I have at least three more books to wait for! :)

This book was quite good. I'm a fantasy person, so this paranormal romance was up my alley enough that I was willing to take a chance! I think your basis for novels definitely influences review, and for me, I quite enjoyed this book, even though, I'm not the biggest romance reader. The idea behind it interested me, and vaguely reminded me of some awesome airbending scenes from Avatar: The Last Airbender TV show, so I was drawn in at that idea.

The characters were great, a strong male and

Since I love Paranormal Romances, I could not wait to get started reading Wicked Winds by Sharon Kay. At first, I had an idea in my mind of what the book was going to be about, but Kay completely shattered that thought. I absolutely fell in love with this book. This book was HOT!!!!

Are you looking for an alpha male, with a little bit of demon, a female, who can take care of herself, literally? Well Wicked Wind is the book for you.

Nicole and her sisters, two of whom we know and one who we have yet to meet, have powers that they know nothing about. They use these powers to help innocent people. Little do they know they are the Solsti and have a greater purpose, some of which we find out in Wicked Wind. The use of their powers is how Nicole meets Gunnar.

I love reading paranormal romances and let me just say this one doesn’t disappoint.

Wicked Wind by Sharon Kay starts off with you meeting Nicole. Nicole’s parents died when her and her sisters were young. Nicole has 2 sisters and they all have special gifts. Nicole’s gift is that she can manipulate the wind. All 3 haven’t been able to figure out why they were given/have these gifts or what they truly are. Are they human or maybe something different……

This was a very unique paranormal romance that is full of passion, mystery and action. Nicole and her sisters have unique abilities that they have kept to themselves. Nicole has the ability to manipulate wind. They practice these abilities by stalking neighborhoods and intervening to stop crimes. A demon named Gunner spots them in action and follows Nicole out of curiosity. Eventually, with Gunner's help, Nicole finds out that she and her sisters are not human at all but Solsti.

Every once in awhile you come across a story you immediately feel a connection, it just clicks. From the first chapter in Wicked Wind, I knew I was going to love it.

First it has an extremely strong female lead...I'd love to have her power. Nicole and her sister prowl the dank and worst of Chicago's city streets protecting those who need it. During one such patrol, she gains the attention of Gunnar, a Lash demon who is kind of like an immortal peace officer with attitude.

This book is an excellent start to what I think will be an incredible series. Sharon Kay includes all of the paranormal/fantasy elements that I look for in a good book.

Gunnar, a Lash demon, who is responsible for maintaining the peace on Earth as well as other realms crosses paths with a "gifted" woman, Nicole, who turns out to be more than she seems. Growing up, Nicole knew she and her sisters had special gifts, but nothing could have prepared her for the reality of the world she was born into

I love this HAWT paranormal romance! It is a very steamy paranormal romance, with a twist on the paranormal. I mean I love my vampires and shape shifters but it's nice to see a different `world' being created in the words of a book!

I love the connection and dynamics between Nicole and Gunnar. Nicole is quite literally a strong independent woman who's just discovered she is not human. Gunner is very much nit

“They fit together like two pieces of a puzzle, both incomplete until they snapped together.”

This book is an awesome start to the series. The world building was written so well that I found myself envisioning myself in their world. This book has suspense, adventure and a wonderful, sexy romance.

I haven't read many books about demons, but Gunnar is awesome. Gunner is someone you would want on your side and his protectiveness of Nichole was wonderful. The fight scenes were very well written and

5 Stars! I read all through the night and woke up wanting to start reading again. I am so happy to have a book to gush about after a bit of a dry spell. I have to say, I love the paranormal lead men! They are so swoon worthy, haha! Seriously, really I mean it. And the lead female held her own, too. No simpering females here!

Gunnar and Nicole both acknowledge an intense attraction to one another that they act upon at once! How refreshing, none of this "Oh no, really, I shouldn't". They realize

This book is flipping awesome.
I have been reading this book for awhile (not because it's bad, because I really didn't want to stop reading once I started, but my own book came out in the middle of reading it and I was busy. I would have finished in ONE sitting otherwise!)
It's full to the brim of sex, romance, and action.
It's a must read for any paranormal romance lover.
The story grabs you from the get go and doesn't let go until the end. It flows seamlessly and involves your emotions.

I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this book. This book gave you the warrior and romance in both. I really enjoyed that it went back in forth. The book was well written. I have to say that it took me a little longer to read then most books. But it had nothing to do with the writing of the book. I had a few mixed feelings about the warrior part of the book. At some times in the book I felt it had parts of religious in the book. That was the hardest part for me thru the book. There love f ...more
