"In the Eye of the Storm" by Samantha Chase

At two a.m. in the middle of a storm, Holly Abrams quit her job...

This contemporary romance by indie author Samantha Chase had me turning the pages and completely engrossed in the story.  "In the Eye of the Storm" is the story of a workaholic CEO who finally sees the light in the middle of a tropical storm when he's trapped inside his home with his assistant.  

Stephen Ballinger doesn't like to be inconvenienced and when Holly announces that she's quitting, he does everything in his power to convince her to stay.  The only problem is that now that they have finally cleared the air about their work relationship, Stephen finally notices Holly in a whole new way and he' s not sure that it's only a work relationship that he wants.

Typical to contemporary romances, Holly has, of course, harbored a secret crush on her boss and once the opportunity to have this secret weekend presents itself, she is right on board and to hell with the consequences.  But at the end of the weekend, there is more than storm debris to work their way through.

This is another category-length novel that would fit in perfectly with the Harlequin Desire line and interestingly enough, it was a finalist in their Editor's Pitch Challenge.  Though Harlequin passed on their chance to publish it, Samantha Chase took the indie route and self published.  Available for only .99 cents on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble, "In the Eye of the Storm" is a sexy, steamy read that fans of Ms. Chase will no doubt enjoy!
