Storm, the eldest son of a heartless businessman is forced to choose a bride. His father wants grandchildren to secure the future of Royal Industries, and he wants them now.
Forced to choose from a specific list of women that’s been promised to the Royal family, Storm holds a masked ball and invites the six women.
Poppy has lived a sheltered life. She has been homeschooled by her overprotective mother. Attending the masked ball is an exciting experience for her until she lands in the arms of Storm Royal. Electricity crackles around them.
Poppy’s delicate new love is shattered when she finds out why Storm really wants to marry her. She’s only a means to an end, another piece of property.
Can Storm win Poppy’s trust while trying to keep his fiery desire for her under control?
This is one force of nature Poppy didn’t see coming.
This is an over the top, insta-love, hot as hell fairytale with a twist of kinkiness.
Each book in The Force of Nature series is standalone & about a different couple.

Poppy by MA Horst (Michelle Horst)
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Author: M.A. Horst
I've read books by Michelle Horst in the past, knowing to a certain degree what to expect, so of course when she came up with her fairytale series, i had to jump on it to see just how she'd transform these stories to make them her own. Now, i have to say this; it took me roughly 20 minutes to read the entire story of Poppy, so it's a short one. I hadn't double checked the blurb of the story before diving into it and i think that came to bite me on the butt since i was left a bit confused. There were times when i honestly thought it had some historical aspects, mostly in the way that Poppy and Storm spoke to one another, and at times with others. It's the insta-love of all insta-loves - Storm fell in love with Poppy with a simple look, not knowing who she is but it is expected that he marry a Flower girl to reunite their two families. Now, most times i don't mind an insta-love type novel, but this one really did make it quite fast and sadly i scoffed at it because personally i don't understand how love at first sight also equates to instant marriage and the knight in shining armor attitude. Again, that's just me since it also happens that i enjoy falling in love with the characters at the same time as they do and i somewhat felt cheated with this one. Maybe the next instalments in the series will call out to me in a better way so that i can actually connect with the characters, which is why i'm still looking forward to reading the next ones.
