Hayden Boudreaux couldn't decide which was worse— that he was falling in love with a mortal or that the only way to break his family's centuries-old curse would be to kill her. Of all that he was certain was the more time he spent with her, the more he knew he would do anything to protect Adriana Alexander, including sacrificing his eternity. What he wouldn't expect was that Luke - his brother that hated Ana, who wanted to kill her - would decide he would want her as his own.
My mini take...
Hayden is so conflicted. He knows falling in love with Adriana is the worst possible idea ever, yet he cannot stop the feelings he is has for her. He is drawn to her and has to be near her. And seeing this side of him makes me adore him that much more, because in Hurricane we saw a different Hayden. We saw a Hayden that could be a jerk at times. So seeing him from his POV sheds a new light on what he was going through to have him acting that way.
Tempest gives readers a chance to crawl into Hayden's head and see what all he was thinking when he first came to New Orleans and meets Adriana. I think that if it has been awhile since you first read Hurricane, like it has been for me, then it is a great refresher for the reader. Duncan goes back through the story in Tempest and we are reminded of everything that took place. It is the perfect book to get us ready for Aftermath…and let me tell you…I am so ready to read it!
