In Colorado during a blizzard, Stephen Mulder, distrusting law enforcement, hires Raiker Forensics to help rescue his eleven year old daughter Ellie. He specifically asks for Macy Reid who rescued Ellie when Art Cooper abducted her and was going to auction her. Macy explains to her boss Kellan Burke, who is also on the case, her rescue was a fortunate by product of breaking up a children trafficking network. Macy and Kellan shared a one night stand, but seeing him again makes Macy realize she still wants him. Kellan believes Macy has the keys to solving the kidnapping as her past as an abducted child seems tied to this kidnapping. He knows he must bully her to rescue the child, but fears if he goes to far the woman he loves will loathe him. The latest Mindhunter romantic suspense (see Waking the Dead and Waking Evil) is a superb investigative mystery with a supporting romantic subplot that remains in a critical secondary role. The story line is fast-paced as Kylie Brant hooks the audience from the moment the Raiker's team gathers at the Manassas Regional Airport to begin the flight to Denver and never slows down keeping readers guessing who is behind the snatch and why. Deadly Intent is a strong thriller.

Eleven year old Ellie is kidnapped.for the second time in her life! Her parents immediately contact Adam Raiker of Raiker Investigations, also known as the Mindhunters, because Raiker is the one who found Ellie the first time. Raiker calls in Macy Reed, who works for him as a forensic linguist, to work on the case. She is perfect to help with this case because she is excellent at what she does, takes her work seriously, but more importantly, this case is personal. You see, Macy was also a kidnap victim and can't imagine what Ellie must be going though having it happen twice so she has a special stake in this case. Kellan Burke is assigned as Macy's partner. Burke, an investigator who in Macy's opinion is somewhat of a wise guy, enjoys teasing Macy about her being British and so prim and proper. This makes Macy a little crazy and she wishes they didn't have to work together but in fact, they wind up working quite closely with each other. In their pursuit to find Ellie, Kellan realizes that Macy just might have to face her past in order to save this girl. For her to do this, Macy must put her trust in Kellan. This winds up being a great help to Macy; much more than she would have expected. The chemistry between Macy and Kellan builds and adds another delightful dimension to the story but these two also know they have an important job to do, so that must keep this in check. When Macy directly ignores an order from her boss by talking to someone from her past, Kellan is the one to rescue her from this. All this adds to their relationship, and brings Macy and Kellan closer than ever. This Mindhunters Series just gets better with each installment. In this fourth book, Kylie Brant gives readers all they can ask for-mystery, suspense, romance, and enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages late into the night! I, for one, will be eagerly waiting for the next Mindhunters book.so write on, Ms. Brant!
