I read Highland Storms (featuring the big brother of the hero in this book) and really enjoyed it. Monsoon Mists stars Jamie Kinross - whose story was hinted at in Highland Storms, but is explained in this one - and Zarmina Miller - beautiful, damaged and mixed race (which was a big deal at the time).
I enjoyed the story a lot. Zar is spirited without being annoying and she's really, REALLY good at her job. I like that. Jaime is... well, a little too perfect for my tastes - he's a gem expert, he's noble, he can speak several languages, he can hold is own in a fight, he's a skilled but considerate lover. Written out like that he does sound like a pretty great hero...must just be me. Wouldn't be the first time I've been told my taste in men is odd - I'm a beta hero kinda girl.
All in all, it's a lovely book. If you're following the stories of the Kinross boys, you'll really enjoy this. And it's got pirates in it. Who doesn't love a book with pirates in it?
The book is a love story set against an action packed plot. I was as captivated by the company rivalries and jostling for control of the cut throat gem trade as I was by the love story. The romantic side of the story develops slowly as the main characters gradually realise their attraction to each other and hesitantly explore love and desire. I found the love scenes tender and almost innocent as well as passionate – a very old fashioned courtship – which was delightful.
Since I’ve already read Highland Storms and Trade Winds I enjoyed discovering “the other brother’s” story in Monsoon Mists. Readers will enjoy this book as a standalone romance or as part of the trilogy of the Kinross family. I heartily recommend it.
