Having the luck of the Irish, Gerry O'Keith has a beautiful fiancé, a high-paying job, a secluded lakeside summer cottage, and a big, black Harley. He also has a keen interest in fine art, and strange, arcane artifacts like Tarot cards. On a trip to the lake, he picks up a unique deck of Tarot cards from a strange, old gypsy - and very quickly learns there's more to Tarot than meets the eye!
Queen of Storms grabbed my attention right at page one and didn't let go until I finished the book. Actually, I am still thinking about the book and Gerry and Cassie.
I've always been intrigued with tarot cards so I was very anxious to read Ms. White's book.
There isn't much background on Gerry and Cassie but that doesn't detract at all from the storyline. The story moves along quickly and there is great detail in the description of the tarot deck backs and the cards themselves, one in particular- Queen of Storms.
The card seems to have a life of it's own and it quickly draws Gerry into the unknown world of the Queen herself. During a storm, Gerry sees the Queen and gives chase as she runs away. He is drawn in to her exquisite beauty and can't seem to quit thinking about the card and the woman.
Cassie is a little creeped out by the mysterious deck and it's ability to seem alive. Cassie has to leave the lake house when her mother is injured and taken to the hospital. She can't believe what she sees when she returns a few days later.
Queen of Stars is a quick read that is well written and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat not knowing what to expect next. The sex scenes are hawt and takes your breath away.
I love how Ms. White is able to bring surprises into the plot the reader never sees coming. I strongly recommend this book to everyone. I am looking forward to reading the next book, Temptation.
