Overview

From New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author, Rebecca York
Was it attempted murder or a boating accident? Either way, the hard-driving Jordan Campbell is in a coma. When Frank Decorah asks nurse Hannah Andrews to use her psychic talent to connect with Jordan, she knows it's a dangerous job. Once she's on the case, whoever tried to kill Jordan will likely turn on her. But as she digs into the man's background, she can't refuse Frank's assignment. Now she's risking her life---and her heart.

Because of her psychic abilities, Hannah gets into Jordan's coma dream and confronts him.

EXCERPT:

He turned to face her, standing so close that their bodies touched, and the thought she'd had earlier came back to her. Could she wake him by forming an intimate bond with him? Or was that just an excuse to do what she'd been thinking about for days?

Raising her face, she stared into his dark eyes. For a charged moment, neither of them moved. Before she could change her mind, she cupped the back of his head, lowered his face, and touched her lips to his.

At first he didn't respond. Then he accepted the contact and moved his mouth against hers before settling and pressing. She returned the pressure. When his tongue stroked the seam of her lips, she parted them.

As she did, she felt a surge of heat as his breath mingled with hers. His tongue dipped into her mouth, playing with the inside of her lips, then the line of her teeth. She had wondered what kind of lover he would be. Now she knew he was good at kissing.

And what other talents did he have?

Her breath caught as his hands glided down her back and cupped her bottom.

When he spoke, it was against her lips. "Don't lie to me. You came to my bedroom in that provocative outfit to make love with me."

"No."

"Then what?"

"What I said. To wake you."

He laughed, but the sound wasn't nearly as harsh as when they'd been discussing Richard. "You're waking me all right." To emphasize the point, he pressed his hips against her, and she felt the erection straining at the front of his slacks

Perfect for this time of year. This book is part of the Ten Christmas Brides box set. The story had a paranormal twist into the romance scene. Hannah, a nurse that could connect with her patients in an unusual way, was hired to care for tycoon Jordan; a man in a deep coma after a terrible fall. No one could explain why he was in a coma but this is where the story became interesting. It is a fast paced story that takes you into the life of Jordan and his family who clearly had an agenda from the moment Hannah arrived at the house. Soon her own life was in danger and the author did a good work creating enough suspense not to make it overly dramatic. The ideal story for this time of year. It had a wonderful cast of characters, each wrapped in mystery as Hannah tried to safe Jordan's life from impending death. With a romantic ending that gave you a good feeling at the end.
