Storm Chaser by Mark R. Hunter is a contemporary romance that should keep the readers of this type of genre thoroughly fulfilled. The story revolves around the two main characters: Allie Craine, a photographer, and State Trooper Chance Hamlin. They meet up by chance during a tornado bearing down on Ft. Wayne, Indiana, when Chance almost runs over her standing in the middle of the road. Little does he know that what he thinks is a little girl is a whirlwind in herself and not a runaway as he suspects. As a photographer who takes photos of disasters, Allie rescues Chance, instead of the other way around. As things start to heat up between Chance and Allie, it seems like there is always some kind of disaster that comes between them. Will the storm between them grow, or will it be diminished? Will Allie's secrets come between the two, and will Chance quit being so stubborn about their relationship?
This book will take the reader on a whirlwind and occasional humorous ride keeping up with the adventures of Chance and Allie. With a backdrop of tornadoes, storms, stalkers, firebugs and other catastrophes, we also find an amazing secondary cast of characters. The characters become real in the eyes of the reader and makes one feel as if they are there in the midst of the storms with them. Along with the romance side of the book, one will also find humor and a touch of suspenseful mystery. I found the book easy to read; though not a fast read, it did not drag out and become boring. Not really much of a contemporary romance reader myself, I would still recommended this book for all those who love to read this type genre.
