Sizzle and burn:
Being called creepy can be hard on your self-esteem - even for an attractive, independent woman like Raine Tallentyre. That’s what happened when she revealed her paranormal abilities, bringing her recent romantic relationship to a hasty end. Her aunt Vella, a gifted but troubled soul, told her years ago to keep her talents a secret. And now that poor Aunt Vella has died, Raine has resigned herself to a lonely life.
But when she journeys to Shelbyville, Washington, to clear out her aunt’s house, Raine’s highly developed sensitivity leads her to a horrifying discovery: a young woman, bound and terrified, in a basement storage locker. The victim is alive, and the culprit is loose. Enter investigator Zack Jones, who isn’t repelled by her powers: in fact, he has his own. While Raine hears voices, Zack sees visions, leaving Raine to experience an intense, thrilling intimacy that she never dared to expect.
There’s one complication, however: Zack is working for the Arcane Society, the secret organization dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena that shattered Raine’s family with an act of betrayal long ago. As a killer makes her his target, Raine and Zack must rely not only on their powerful abilities but on each other as well.
Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she’s got zero field experience; she’s a librarian, for heaven’s sake. She’s not expecting much from Malone, either, who walks with a cane and isn’t so good with a gun. Nice résumé for a bodyguard.
But even before they reach their hotel in Maui – where they’ll be posing as honeymooners – Grace and Luther feel the electric charge between them. Problem is, they need to remain vigilant day and night; because it soon becomes clear there’s more going on here.
Rogue sensitives – operatives for the underground group Nightshade – are pouring into the resort. Grace understands how dangerous these people can be...especially with those para-hunters at their sides.
