A TOP PICK 2007 from Romance Readers at Heart

A RR@H Reviewers' Top Picks For 2007


Author: Deborah MacGillivray
ISBN: 0505526921 10/2007 PARANORMAL

It was all part of the plan. While his brother was in Scotland dethroning the Lady of Falgannon, Jago Mershan was headed to Kentucky. There he would do his share in avenging his father on the Montgomeries. Only, there was a monkey wrench in the works.

Just looking at his alleged enemy's granddaughter made Jago think of his classic black '67 Harley Electra Glide, a motorcycle with clean lines and sleek curves that promised the ride of a man's life. Asha was all woman--and the only woman for him. He'd bet she could go from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye...and not even her claims of paranormal happenings in the diner she ran could put him off. He knew magic: He had a special name for the sights, the sounds, the tastes and smells of that perfect ride. There might be a storm coming, but it was one of passion, and together he and Asha would be...Riding the Thunder.


RIDING THE THUNDER is the second book in a series, following THE INVASION OF FALGANNON ISLE. I read the first book, falling completely under the spell of this tale of revenge and love. RIDING THE THUNDER is Jago and Asha’s story, and continues the story that began with the generations that came before them. The Mershan brothers and the Montgomerie sisters have been thrown together by fate. The fireworks that explode between them, as well as the strong attraction they share, keep Jago and Asha together, at least long enough to make this story one of the most interesting romances I’ve read in a while.

When Jago reaches a small town in Kentucky and finds Asha running The Windmill, a restaurant in the middle of nowhere filled with a cast of quirky characters, he gets more than he’s bargained for. Although he has vowed to help his oldest brother bring the Montgomerie sisters down, Asha is captivating. Jago falls for her, quickly becoming embroiled in a mystery involving a pair of long-dead lovers, a possessed jukebox and too many other unusual (and charming!) details to divulge.

My recommendation? Read Deborah MacGillivray’s RIDING THE THUNDER – you won’t be sorry! This book is fast-paced with a host of loveable characters. I fell in love with everything about this story, right down to the fat, late-named cat. It’s a keeper!
