Jan Crow
Anger and secrets of years past can't stay down. Like the flames of a fire out of control, they surface to destroy the budding relationships. Echo, Athan and Sean must fight to keep the fire going.

    When The Past And Future Collide - Sparks Are Sure To Fly...

    After being separated for ten years, Sean and Echo are suddenly reunited - and the flames of passion between them are just as quickly reignited. Despite the fact that they've been apart for so long, they soon discover that the smoldering heat from their adolescent fling remains just as strong and powerful as it was prior to the abrupt breakup that forced them apart.

    However, each of them has taken on "significant others" during their time apart, which threatens to prematurely spoil their reunion. For Sean, it's his fiancée, Deirdre, a high-powered attorney accustomed to getting exactly what she wants - and who will fight to the death to prevent another woman from stealing him away. For Echo, it's her beloved son, Athan - who just happens to be Sean's, as well - but, due to the circumstances of his conception and birth, she's forced to keep his true paternity a secret.

    Most importantly of all, both Sean and Echo possess hidden, dark secrets buried deep within repressed memories they've strived their entire lives to move past; however, when those secrets re-emerge and begin to affect the new life they're attempting to build together, it could have disastrous consequences for them both...will they be able to reconcile their dangerous pasts with the promising future they both so desperately crave?

    A priceless jewel from early in her writing career, Flames Past displays the trademark literary excellence for which acclaimed author Gracie C. McKeever has become well known. In it, she seamlessly weaves such topics as love, heartbreak, family dynamics, relationship politics, and, of course, the mercurial workings of the heart, into a well-crafted tale reflective of the multi-faceted tapestry of human experience. Despite their God-given "unique" abilities, Sean and Echo are nonetheless flesh-and-blood beings prone to the same feelings and inclinations as us all, and their individual and collective struggles present the reader with a realistic snapshot of the difficulties we all face when confronted with both natural and supernatural challenges.

    Also, in her signature fashion, McKeever embodies her characters with the same full-on, lifelike qualities as all the players in her ever-growing body of writings. In so doing, she prevents the reader from reaching snap judgments about any one in particular - and even manages to evoke feelings of sympathy and compassion for the supposed "bad guys" of the tale.

    Compelling and enlightening, Flames Past is an excellent introduction to what has become a long, outstanding career of one superlative tale after another. Kudos to McKeever for continuing to provide readers worldwide with stories guaranteed to keep them hooked from beginning to end. Highly recommended.
