He can have any woman, except the one he wants.

“You can't help but fall in love with Neil and Candy. Neil is Candy's knight in shining armor” – Reviewer – April

“It is nice to know that a story can be so powerful that a man can consider a woman's feelings and show her that love can conquer all and be lover's and friends” – Reviewer – Theresa

In THE UNEXPECTED STORM, Candy McRae is barely making ends meet. She's heartbroken and alone with her horses and baby donkey living hand to mouth on the most sought after oceanfront property. Everyone wants it, including the wealthy hunk who owns the estate next door. And when he offers to buy it she refuses. His first mistake was asking her out. His second was not meaning it. Even though he could solve all her problems, she'd rather sell to the devil himself.

Smart and sexy Neil Friessen is quite the catch. He's not only drop dead gorgeous with a body women dream of. He's wealthy, stubborn, arrogant and thoughtful. He attracts women, and million dollar deals, and plans to build a resort on the property next to his. He has the plans, the money, and the resources. The only thing standing between him and his sweet deal is the dark haired beauty who owns the property he wants.

When a storm forces everyone to evacuate Candy refuses to leave her animals, and her property. But it's Neil who shows up, Neil who rescues her. Except by the time he finds her, vulnerable and hurt, they can't get out. Neil is alone with the one woman he's always wanted. And he'll have to choose between this dark haired beauty that fills his dreams every night, and building his million dollar resort.

She could give him everything except the one thing he wanted—A child.

— Lorhainne Eckhart, is courageous to write a story with a "good guy" who is so despicable in his behavior. That does not ruin the story, though; if anything, it adds realism and volume to the plot.” –Susan

—Any book that has me wanting to cry and yell at the characters this much...a story that holds me to it so much I don't want to put it down....THAT is a good book! –Lorna

--“I don't know if I should love him or hate him, but I couldn't put it down”—Amazon Customer

—“I loved this emotional roller coaster.”—Mimi Barbour, Author

Candy knows that her husband wants a baby, but she can’t give him one. When Neil pays for a surrogate and moves her into their home, he tells her not to worry, but she suddenly feels as if she’s on the outside looking in.

Then, one day, she meets a little girl who steals her heart, a little girl with a damaged, scarred soul filled with the kind of despair and hopelessness that should never be in the innocent eyes of a child. But neither Neil nor his family understand her need to help.

As their marriage hangs on brink of disaster Candy is forced to make a choice between her husband and helping this child.
