Enslaved for millennia by the masters of the Welsh faery realm, the fierce Celtic warrior Rhys is doomed to wander the earth forever. But when a brave beauty unwittingly breaks the enchantment, he is drawn into a strange new world…and an all-consuming desire.
Sensible Morgan doesn’t believe in magic—until a mysterious being saves her from a fate worse than death, and life as she knows it changes forever. Now the man of her dreams has become flesh and blood, igniting a spark in Morgan’s soul which science cannot explain. But even a love that transcends time may not be strong enough to withstand the power of an ancient curse.

First Thought when Finished: Storm Warrior was an awesome audiobook to fill in the hours of the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon! Just enough romance, action, and fun!
Story Thoughts: Automatic Hook Alert: Put a freaking vet as your lead character and I am almost guaranteed to read the story. This was the perfect occupation for Morgan and a great backdrop for Storm Warrior. Needless to say there is a lot of fae “messing around” going on and a whole lot of “magic doesn’t exist” thoughts. That combines to make a story that is both fun and annoying at times. I love how Rhys’ story played out because it never felt rushed or forced. I felt that Dani stayed true to both of the leads and that made Storm Warrior that much more interesting because there were some major hurdles to overcome!
Character Thoughts: Rhys was an awesome leading man. I loved his protectiveness, giving attitude, and gratefulness. He was very unique in the way he approached things (alpha yet not overbearing)and I fell in love with him from the beginning. Loved Morgan though she annoyed me at times. She was strong, smart, caring, and really good with animals. Dani took her occupation and made it part of the story. Morgan’s friends were the bomb diggity! They were smart, unusual, and fantastically fun. Old man and little dude (their names are slipping my mind)were great friends to Rhys and he needed that! The characters really shined and made Storm Warrior great.

I am a fan of Justine! I think she has great timing and does a great job with characters that have accents. She nails Morgan and does a pretty good job on Rhys. Overall, this was a good book on audio!
Final Thoughts: This was my first Dani Harper book but it won’t be my last!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
