SHE SHOULD BE SEEN, BUT NEVER TOUCHED...

Kerry Smithson's modeling career ensures that she will be admired from afar, which is essential since mere human touch sparks blinding pain and terrifying visions.

Dante Coltari is hired to protect Kerry from those who know who she is—or more importantly what she is—and want her dead because of it. Nothing could have prepared him for the challenge of keeping her safe. But, strangely, his lightest touch brings her exquisite pleasure rather than pain, and Dante and Kerry have an otherwordly connection that might just pull them through.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The outstanding second Amoveo Legend paranormal matches two characters introduced in Unleashed: Dante Coltari, determined president of a personal security firm, and Kerry Smithson, a feisty model who feels excruciating pain and sees frightening visions when touched by anyone other than her best friend, Samantha. Puzzled when Dante’s touch feels good, Kerry soon learns that she, like him, is Amoveo, a shape-shifter hiding among humans. Dante is her predestined mate, and he becomes her first and only lover. But not everyone is happy for the couple: a sect of Amoveo known as the Purists is working to root out and exterminate all Amoveo–human hybrids—like Kerry and Samantha. Working with an engaging group of fellow shape-shifters, Dante and Kerry race to stay alive. Red-hot love scenes punctuate a well-plotted suspense story that will keep readers turning pages as fast as they can. Agent: Jeanne Forte Dube, Forte Associates. (Apr.)

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1

"You are one sexy bitch." Kerry grinned broadly and shut the door to Samantha's bedroom. She leaned back and folded her arms to get a better look at the bride. "Seriously, does Malcolm know how freaking lucky he is?" she asked skeptically. Kerry bent down and smoothed out the train of Samantha's simple ivory gown.

"Oh he does, and so do I." Samantha smiled serenely and adjusted the bodice of her strapless silk wedding dress. Kerry stood behind her best friend and removed the one or two kinks in the delicate veil. She smiled at their contrasting reflections in the oval antique mirror. Kerry was a good head taller than Sam. Sam's hair, swept off her neck, was as blonde as Kerry's was black. Samantha had always been beautiful, but today she was truly radiant.

Tears stung at the back of Kerry's eyes. Her best friend, her only friend, was getting married. She took a deep breath, wrapped her arms around Sam's waist, and braced herself. It was always a gamble touching another human being. Samantha was the only person Kerry could bear to touch. Everyone, including Sam, thought it was a germ phobia. The truth was much more complicated.

It was far more frightening.

She embraced Sam and saw the one image that always burst into her mind, an enormous gray wolf. As odd as it was, that unique image gave her comfort. Since they were children that was the only thing Kerry saw when she touched Sam. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case when she touched other people. Kerry let out a heavy sigh, a mixture of relief and comfort as Sam gave her arms a squeeze.

"I'm not going to Mars, you know. I'm just getting married." Sam laughed. "Now I'll be two houses down the beach instead of one. At the very most I'm a phone call away."

"That's what they all say." Kerry sniffled and released Sam from the embrace. She turned quickly and wiped the tears away, feeling foolish for such a display.

"Besides, you're the famous model," Sam said with a teasing lilt in her voice. "You know... always jet-setting around the world on photo shoots. We only get to see each other a couple of times a year anyway. Who knows? We may see each other more now."

Sam took Kerry's hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze. The wolf image burst into Kerry's head, but at least there was no pain. She could almost tolerate the visions. It was the crippling pain that terrified her. Kerry's body stilled, and she prayed her friend wouldn't notice.

"I promise nothing will change! Look at it this way, every time you come to your parents place for a break at the beach, you can count on me being here."

"He better not be one of those Neanderthal types that won't let you have a girls' night out. I mean I don't even know this guy. Are you sure this is it? You've only known him for a month."

Even as the words escaped her lips she knew what the answer was. In truth, she'd never seen her friend this happy. Ever since Samantha met Malcolm, she glowed. Kerry had heard about that but hadn't witnessed it until now. Her lips curved. She had always been envious of Sam because she'd been raised in a household with real love and affection. Sam's family was a far cry from the icy environment of her own childhood.

Sometimes she wondered if her parents' cool behavior was a reaction to her unusual... sensitivity. They hadn't tried to embrace her or touch her in years. They had tried a few times when she was a child, but whenever they did she screamed bloody murder and wouldn't speak for days. Soon they just stopped trying. It saddened her to know that they never would've adopted her if they'd known how different she was.

To top it all off, she didn't exactly fit the preppy, upper-crusty mold that the Smithsons were cut from. She towered over everyone in the family and was built more like an Amazon than a delicate WASP. In every picture she stuck out like a sore thumb. Tall, big-boned, dark-haired, dark-eyed... loner. They didn't know human contact brought not only horrifying images, but excruciating pain.

Except for when she touched Samantha. There was something special about Sam. Thank God.

"Hey!" Sam snapped her fingers and brought Kerry out of her trance. "Hello in there? You okay?" Sam knitted her brow worriedly at Kerry. "Maybe we should've postponed the wedding? I don't think you're quite yourself since..."

Kerry put her hand up in protest before Samantha could finish her thought. "Don't even think about bringing up that ugliness, especially today! I'm fine. I don't even remember any of it. I mean it!" She clapped her hands and quickly changed the subject. "Hey, why are we standing around here? You've got a big hunk of man waiting to marry you underneath that beautiful tent on the beach."

Sam smiled and gave a quick nod, knowing her friend well enough to know the subject was closed. She picked up her bouquet of red roses and headed out the door toward her new life. Kerry held Sam's train off of the floor, a traditional maid of honor duty, and followed her down the stairs. She tried to concentrate on the smooth fabric between her fingers, instead of the fact that she'd just lied to her best friend.

She did remember.

She had a vivid memory of one thing from the day she was attacked. A pair of eyes had been fixed on her, eyes that glowed like embers in a fire, accompanied by a deep guttural growl. Every night since the attack, her dreams were haunted by that memory. As she walked into the bright September sunlight, she couldn't help but wonder if she would ever sleep soundly again.

***

The music from the lively band flowed lightly around Kerry and the rest of the wedding guests. She sipped the cool, crisp champagne as she watched Samantha dance with her new husband and could practically feel their happiness mixed with the late summer breeze. Her gaze drifted over the intimate group of guests gathered around the bride and groom. They all had that same serene look while they watched Malcolm and Samantha share their first dance as husband and wife. He towered over her as he twirled her around the dance floor, and the sound of her laughter peppered the air.

The two of them hadn't taken their eyes off each other for one second. If Kerry didn't know any better, she'd swear they were reading each other's minds. She chuckled quietly and sipped her champagne from the delicate crystal flute. The guests were limited to only thirty or so close friends and family members. Her own parents had sent their regrets from Europe, which was something of a relief. Kerry could only handle them in limited doses and didn't want their chilly demeanor ruining such a beautiful day for Sam.

"May I have this dance?"

The deep voice rolled over her like sudden thunder in the distance. She jumped with a yelp and splashed champagne onto her red satin gown. "Shit," she hissed under her breath. Kerry brushed at the droplets, which were now making dark stains on her dress, and shot an irritated glance at Malcolm's best man, Dante. "I don't dance." Something about this guy threw her off balance. Kerry prided herself on her ability to stay in control, and this guy rattled her.

"I'm sorry. I didn't realize I'd have that effect on you."

The amusement in his voice made her want to punch him square in the mouth.

Or kiss him. Shit, she was in trouble.

She glared at him through narrowed eyes and put on her most stuck-up and obnoxious tone, hoping she could frighten him away. "Don't flatter yourself, Tarzan. I got startled. That's all."

He had moved in next to her without a sound. How long had he been standing there? He didn't go away, but instead, he moved in closer, just a breath away from her. The warmth of his body whispered along her bare arm and all the little hairs stood on end. She was terrified he'd touch her and at the same time worried he wouldn't. She quickly turned her attention back to Malcolm and Sam, trying to ignore him, but failing miserably.

He was a difficult man to ignore. At five foot ten, she was usually taller than most men, and this guy towered over her, even in her Jimmy Choos. He was massive, well over six feet tall-a solid wall of muscle. He had a handsome, masculine face with the most enormous amber eyes she'd ever seen. His thick auburn hair was almost the exact same color as his eyes.

Not that she'd noticed him or anything.

Kerry scolded herself. There was absolutely no point in getting all hot and bothered over some guy she'd never be able to touch. I must be the oldest living virgin that isn't officially a nun. She drained what was left of her drink.

Her goal was to be as horrible to him as possible and get him to go away. Dante smiled as though he knew she was doing her best to upset him, and she could feel his gaze wander down the length of her body.

"You'll dance with me. Maybe not today," he whispered seductively into her ear. "But eventually... you and I will dance."

Kerry turned to give the arrogant bastard a piece of her mind, but he was gone. Vanished, it seemed, into thin air. Her breath came quickly, and her eyes darted around the tent. Her body still quivered from the soft whisper, laden with innuendo. She was horrified that everyone in the tent would see how he'd thrown her entire body into overdrive. Her cheeks burned with anger, fear, and lust-a potent combination. Kerry straightened her back in an effort to calm her quaking limbs as a welcome voice wafted over her.

"Well now, missy. I hope you're going to keep coming to visit me even though our girl is married off."

Kerry let out the breath she'd been holding and smiled at Sam's grandmother Nonie. "C'mon Nonie, you're not getting rid of me that easily." Kerry placed the empty flute on a passing waiter's tray and quickly scooped up a fresh glass. Perhaps a little more booze would calm her nerves.

"Well, you know you've always been like a granddaughter to me. You and Samantha are practically sisters, so you can't blame an old lady for worrying." She smiled up at Kerry with twinkling eyes that reminded her of the summer ocean.

"Well, since Sam and Malcolm aren't even going on a honeymoon, and they're living right next door to you... I don't think you'll be that lonely." Kerry took a fresh swig of the champagne and hoped she didn't sound as jealous as she felt. "I have to leave tomorrow for a photo shoot in New Orleans, but I'll be back after that. To be very honest," she said with a sigh, "I'm getting really burnt out and sick of traveling."

"You're going on a shoot already? Well now, don't you think you're jumping back into things awfully fast?" Nonie's voice hovered somewhere between panic and anger. Kerry couldn't quite tell which was going to win out. She couldn't bring herself to look at Nonie, so she kept her eyes trained on the happy couple.

"I'm fine, Nonie. Sheesh, did you and Sam go to the same worrywart school? I'm not in any more danger from AJ. My cousin was obsessed with Sam, remember? I just got in his way," she said flippantly. "He's long gone from here anyway. Every cop in Rhode Island has his picture, and Westerly is a small town. I mean, for Christ's sake, Millie's even got his picture up at the diner with a big danger sign plastered above it. I'd be more worried about Samantha."

Nonie's mouth set in a grim line. "Samantha will be fine. She's stronger than you think, and besides she has Malcolm. I worry about you, Kerry. You shouldn't be traveling by yourself. You just never know what can happen, and I would think you've learned that as a result of recent events."

Kerry rolled her eyes at the scolding tone and turned to face Nonie. She looked into her worry-filled eyes set in a soft, wrinkled face, and any irritation she felt melted away with the ocean breeze. She had the overwhelming urge to scoop the old woman up in a hug but knew the cost would be too great. Instead she swallowed the lump that had formed in her throat and turned quickly to face the calm, blue sea.

Nonie and Sam were the only two people in the world she really loved, and she'd almost lost them both because of AJ. He'd been completely obsessed with Samantha and had coerced Kerry into luring her into his sick trap. Her mind drifted to that awful night. She had fought back as much as she could, but he'd overpowered her. She was disgusted with herself because if she had touched him before that, just once, she would've seen what he was up to. She would've seen through the facade to the evil underneath, but she'd been too weak. Her stomach roiled at the memory of her cowardice.

Samantha's bright laughter tumbled through the air and brought a smile to her lips. Nonie was right. Sam would be fine. If it weren't for Malcolm, AJ would've killed them both. He'd scared the little worm off, and there'd been no trace of him in the weeks following the attack. It was as though he'd vanished from the face of the earth. Samantha had been hurt because of her, and she would never forgive herself for that.

Nonie stood silently by her side as they watched the waves roll gently onto the sand. Kerry wanted to tell Nonie and Sam the truth, but was terrified at what they would think. They were all that she had, and she couldn't afford to lose them. What was she supposed to say? Hey, guess what? I have visions when I touch people. Oh, by the way, it's so painful I want to vomit. How about a hug? They would think she's insane just like her twisted cousin AJ. She cringed at the very thought of it.

If she lost them, then she would really be alone. Kerry pulled the burgundy wrap tightly around her as the cool ocean breeze picked up. She shivered, knowing it wasn't from the wind. Taking a deep breath, she finally broke the silence.

"I'll be careful, Nonie. Listen. I'm going to New Orleans not Iraq. I'll be perfectly safe."

"Yes, you will." Samantha's all too chipper tone came over Kerry's other shoulder. "Malcolm and I have hired someone to make certain that is the case."

Kerry narrowed her eyes and looked warily at Samantha. "What are you babbling about? Has marriage made you lose your senses already?"

"Oh, I make her crazy. There's no doubt about that," Malcolm said softly. He stood behind Sam with his arms wrapped around her waist and nibbled on her ear.

"Malcolm," Sam giggled. "Cut it out. This is serious." Kerry rolled her eyes but couldn't resist smiling at them and fought the urge to look around for Dante. "You two are gonna frighten the guests. Get a room. Jeez."

"What my lovely bride is trying to tell you is that we've taken measures to be sure you're kept safe on this next trip. It's only been a few weeks since the unfortunate events of late. We just want to be crtain that you have an extra measure of security. That's all."

Kerry eyed the three of them one at a time. Each of their faces held steely resolve, and she saw there was no point in arguing. "I can see that I'm being totally ganged up on. Aren't I?"

"Yes!" Samantha wriggled out of Malcolm's embrace, popped up on her toes, and planted a quick kiss on Kerry's cheek. The wolf image whisked fleetingly through Kerry's mind, leaving as quickly as it came, and she shook her head as Malcolm led Samantha back to the dance floor. "It better not be some crotchety old cop or something," she shouted after them.

"I'm not crotchety or a cop." Dante's deep, male voice rolled over her, and she was instantly aware of his body behind hers. So close. Too close. Kerry held her breath and whipped around to face him.

"No way!" She placed her hands firmly on her hips and glared up at him defiantly.

"Inferno Securities has the highest reputation. We've provided personal security for kings and queens. I'm sure I can handle a princess like you." Dante delivered a wicked grin and remained stone still, unwilling to retreat. He smiled as her deep brown eyes flashed angrily back at him.

He might be there to protect her, but little did she know, she was the one who would be saving him.

***

He would be sorry. A satisfied giggle bubbled and threatened to boil over. Their betrayal and disloyalty would finally be punished. They were traitors of the largest proportions, and after all these years they would finally pay for their actions. Imagine the audacity. Choosing that woman over his own kind? Had he learned nothing from the others? He had to know that sooner or later he'd have to pay price. The ultimate punishment would be delivered by the Punisher.

"I like that." The words came out in a rush. "I need to call myself something while I play our little game. Don't I?"

The question hung unanswered in the air. The sounds of the city bustled outside the window as steam fogged up the bathroom mirror.

"The Punisher. That's what I'll call myself, and that is the name that they will fear. It will keep them up at night and have them all looking around every corner."

The Punisher laughed loudly and reveled in the sound as it bounced around the tiled room.

Death was coming.

    In the world created by Sara Humphreys, shapeshifters live quiet

    In the world created by Sara Humphreys, shapeshifters live quietly among us. They are the Amoveo and there are ten clans, including lions, tigers, panthers, coyotes, foxes, bears, eagles, gyrfalcon, and the wolf clan.

    Kerry Smithson is a beautiful supermodel, but beneath the beauty hides a torturous secret. She is an empath and touching not only brings her great pain, but causes her to get flashes into the dark secrets hidden in the souls of those she touches. She has lived with this curse all her life and it has alienated her from even her adoptive parents, who could not touch her without her screaming in agony. What she doesn’t know yet is that she is also a half-breed; one of her natural parents was Amoveo.

    Dante Coltari is the head of Inferno Securities, and he is also Amoveo, a member of the fox clan. He knew from the moment he met Kerry that she was meant to be his life mate. Now he must protect her from threats both from humans and from other Amoveo, neither of which want a further mixing of the bloodlines.

    I was very intrigued by this story since I read those few pages at the end of Unleashed. I could only image that life as an empathy is very difficult and lonely one if you cannot touch another person and I was curious how Sara would tackle this in her book.

    Once again the characters were well written and the story drawn me in right from the beginning. I admit I started doubting the allegiances of some of the major characters (someone had inside information) and I no longer trusted anyone. I wasn’t sure who our antagonist was until the final reveal. She really kept me guessing. This was definitely a very enjoyable story, and I am looking forward to William’s story in the Fall.

    If you are a lover of all things paranormal, then "Untouche

    If you are a lover of all things paranormal, then "Untouched, the second book in The Amoveo Legend Series, by the beautiful Sara Humphreys, should not be missed! Ms. Humphreys captivated me with "Unleashed", the first in the series, and she has kept me completely enraptured with "Untouched". She writes with a familiarity & witty dark humor that you only normally see with long time authors and she draws you in from the very first page.
    Kerry is a beautiful, intelligent, but untouchable high-fashion model, struggling with her psychic talents, which she looks at as being a curse, not a gift.. Dante, an utterly sensual, mesmerizing Amoveo Fox shifter, is full of depth, character & an attraction that grabs you right from the start. The chemistry between Dante & Kerry is deliciously steamy and explosive. The action & drama scenes are so compelling and attention-getting that I couldn't even put the book down until they were over! Kerry struggles to make it through her everyday world, unable to touch people because of excruciatingly painful visions.. Dante was hired by Kerry's best friend, Samantha, to keep Kerry safe on her latest modeling shoot in New Orleans.. From the moment these two start verbally sparring, you will instantly be hooked. Kerry has had to keep people at a distance her whole life & she has no intention of letting Dante in, either. But something about the man captures her attention like no one else ever has before & she can't help but be drawn to him, even as she is trying to deal with a sinister evil that has set it's sights on Kerry & Dante and won't stop until they are dead. Can these two pull together & manage to save each other, their own lives and still manage to fall into that heart stopping, beautiful, forever love that we all dream about? You need to grab this book right away & find out!!
    Sara Humphreys is an intelligent, friendly, funny & beautiful (inside & out!) author who writes truly mesmerizing stories that keep you addicted til the very end... And I'm definitely addicted to this amazing new series & can't wait for the next installment! Thank you, Sara, for bringing the hunky, heroic & oh-so-sexy Amoveo men into our lives!!

    Breathless
    I just finished reading UNTOUCHED, second book in the Amoveo series written by Sara Humphreys.
    I just loved her characters Kerry and Dante! The story begins at Malcolm and Samantha's wedding. Both fear for
    Kerry's safety so they offer her Dante as her bodyguard. If you haven't read the first books, the Amoveo are shape-shifting animal clans who live among humans. Ms. Humphreys's story is filled with romance, mystery and suspense.
    Lots of sizzling scenes and beautiful chemistry between Kerry and Dante. The story is very well written. I noted that Kerry is a plus size model..it's refreshing! I highly recommend this book if you love shape-shifters or paranormal! Looking forward to read UNTAMED.

    Untouched
    The Amoveo Legend #2

    An excellent continuance from Unleashed, I was gripped within the first few pages. Kerry and Dante may be mates, but I love the way Kerry keeps him on his toes and doesn’t just give in. The passion and chemistry is so real between them, that I couldn’t help but be completely drawn into their world and relationship. Well written with plenty of action, I was kept up well past my bedtime reading and couldn’t put it down.

    Enjoyable

    I do love the "fated and nothing can prevent it" theme in the shifters books. Just wish authors didn't feel like every book has to be filled with "battles against evil".

    Another yummy treat

    Wow, I loved this book. I think Kerry was the most realistic character written in most of the books I have read lately. A girl after my own heart, she's a full figured girl who doesn't care what other think. I loved her and Dante's story, and I cant wait to start the next book in the series.

    Great Paranormal!! This book was the first I have read in this s

    Great Paranormal!!
    This book was the first I have read in this series, and I loved it! I have now added all the books to this series to my wish list. I am glad that this book can be read as a stand alone. I loved the characters Kerry and Dante's story. I love paranormal books, and this one did not disappoint. Kerry is a model and is in danger, so Dante is asked to protect her. Of course he jumps at the chance to protect her since Kerry is his mate, now the problem is he has to protect her and convince her that they are meant to be together and life mates.  If you like a good paranormal romance with suspense, then this book is for you. I can't wait to read the next books in this series.

    Theme intriguing but plot/storyline is weak

    The storyline is quite thin probably because it is a series. The characters are interesting, but they have no depth.

    The Soulmate We All Dream Of

    Kerry Smithson is a supermodel with womanly curves that captures the eye of a body guard, Dante Coltari, hired by her friends to protect her while in the city of New Orleans. Dante is completely entranced with the plus-size supermodel, but quickly finds that having her requite his feelings will be quite the task to accomplish. All of her life Kerry has avoided every person's touch, and if she can help it, Dante, although beautiful and exhilarating, won't be the exception. Inexplicably, and much to Kerry's surprise, she finds herself eager to touch him. Kerry also finds that a secret that she's kept her entire life is easy to reveal to Dante, and while romance blooms between the two, little do they know that danger lurks in "The Big Easy".

    Kerry feels that she needs the support of her best friend, Samantha, to give her answers to changes with which Samantha has also had to deal, yet is hesitant to contact her. But when an anonymous note is left at the front desk for Kerry, she sends a pleading call to Sam for help. The pace of the story quickens as they try to figure out who could be threatening the lovely Kerry. Dante will not stand to lose her, but it's out of his hands when "The Punisher" outsmarts them all. Who will save the Amoveo now?

    In the second book of Sara Humphreys' series, "The Amoveo Legend", the author has again weaved an exciting paranormal romance and mystery in the exciting world of shape shifters. The feel of the French-Cajun environment is so realistically portrayed in Humphreys' descriptive scenes that you'll want to hop the first plane to New Orleans. The story is filled with clever quips and an unexpected ending that will leave you wondering what other characters in Sara Humphreys' series are privy to their true Amoveo dynasty.

    "Untouched" is a passionate story of love and need for the soulmate of which we all dream.
