Overview

Wealthy, handsome Jason Truitt appears to have it all: he runs an international conglomerate of environmental businesses and research facilities, he lives in a luxurious mansion…and he can’t die. But his uncanny health and failure to age keep him distanced from normal human life. For over a century he’s been searching for the one other person on earth he suspects is afflicted with the same condition. Like him, she has lived under many different names to keep her immortality secret, so in honour of her supernatural ability to induce plant growth by thought alone, he thinks of her as Gaia.

Finding Gaia, however, is only the beginning, for where he has used his talents toward prosperity, hers have brought loss, isolation, abduction, and unspeakable torture. She will need all that he can give to reclaim her own inner strength and rediscover who, what, and when she is.

Meet the Author

Kimberly Chapman has been making things up and writing them down for as long as she can remember. She holds a double major degree in Journalism and Anthropology and worked for a few years as a technology reporter, but she soon found that it was more fun to interact with the fake people who live in her head than interview real-life people about network hardware.

She left her native Canada in 2000 to marry an Australian and live in the United States with him, because love does that sort of thing to a person. They have a young daughter who keeps asking to read this book and has been told not until she’s twenty-five.

When Kimberly’s not obsessively transcribing the lives of the fake people in her head or busy with Mum duties, she can usually be found engaged in experimental cake decorating (which she blogs at http://eat-the-evidence.com), nerdy knitting, volunteering for creative community organizations like Capital Confectioners and The Biscuit Brothers, discussing topics both profound and trivial on Google+, or playing computer games.

Though i've only just read the bonus: The Power Of A Blush 4 1/2 out of 5 and only a little of this the main book i must say it has truly drawn me in to the story as few storys can, The characters are one's the reader can really get into and care about what happens to them! A grate fantasy tale set in both times of old and modern (like Highlander a bit) from a talent writer; i am both honored to have the chance to read such a story and look forward to more fun andventures and sappy romance between Jason and anna!

This book is very well written and got me hooked.It was a little slow paced at first but then it picked up and I really got to enjoy this paranormal romance novel. I think this will be a ebook I will be reading again in the future. If you like reading paranormal romance books then I think you will love this book.

I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I've learned throughout the months that receiving books from authros for reviews can be either hit or miss. They can be either really good, or really bad. Most fall in the middle range. But this book was amazing. If you're looking for massive romance, you won't find it here. Its more fantasy with a romance sprinkled here and there in it. The storyline was unique. The overall book is really well-written. In fact, I'm surprised the author self-published, instead of a company jumping at the oppurtunity. She's really that good of a writer. I felt for the characters, and when it ended, it seemed like this should be continued. Immediately I put my Nook down and looked for the suthor's website to see if there would be a sequel. No news of it though. This book was absolutely amazing, and I couldn't put it down. In fact at work, while a group of us were leaving, one of my friends remarked, "I can't believe you can walk and read at the same time!"

Finding Gaia by Kimberly Chapman Jason Truitt, as he’s known at this time, has lived a really long life considering he was born in 1620. Unknown factors have made him immortal. He heals from injuries and has other unique abilities. Immortality may sound great and all but not when you are alone. Getting to know people just to outlive them all. With all his billions there is one thing Jason desires….his Gaia. A woman he saw at a gathering in 1899 and knew she was like him, he has been searching for her ever since. Anna Vale has kept herself more secluded than Jason. Somehow she had been discovered and captured though. When she is rescued by a handsome man she can’t believe he is anything less than a dream….or another trick by those who have imprisoned her. Kept her away from the sun and plants her body craves to be around. Can she truly believe these rescuers truly only want her to have freedom? Can someone like Anna ever learn to trust? The author has written a unique story. Don and Trisha live in Jason’s mansion with him. He had rescued Trisha as a teenager. They both work for him at Gaia Global as well. Trisha likes to push Jason to his limits especially when he don’t do things as quickly as she wants him too. And Don mostly stays behind his computer being the scientist he is. They have been searching for Jason’s Gaia as well….knowing one day they would be gone and Jason would go on. Alone. Jason and Anna always have to live with the caution of people finding out what they are, especially those who kidnapped Anna before. This book ends on a note that lets you know there is more to come but yet is complete enough that I didn’t feel that I had been left hanging. **Sexual situations and Language

I find the overall plot was a bit dull. When seeing the title I thought it would be mainly about Mr.Truitt finding Gaia, but that only lasted for a very small section of the story. While the rest of the novel was mainly about their relationship after Gaia was found which as beautifuly written as it was the plot lacked the suspese I admire in a novel. However I do believe the book was gracefully written with an abundant amount of unique vocabulary and intriqet character stand point overall a lovely book for someone looking for a book of this type.
