Detective Shannon Martin believes Autumn Rain's gift is a hoax. But he is desperate to find the missing little girl. Can they put aside their differences and find her before it's too late?

Autumn Rain didn't always possess the ability to read emotions imprinted on objects. If you've enjoyed the Imprints series or are just beginning the adventure, you don't want to miss this new prequel novella about her first case as a consultant to the Portland Police Bureau. See how Autumn came into her ability, and how Detective Shannon Martin reacts when he realizes this crazy so-called psychic might just be telling the truth.

Can they put aside their differences and find a missing girl before it's too late?

From the author:

I hope you enjoy this introduction to my Imprints series. Readers have asked me for this story, so here it is! Though this is a shorter story and as such cannot contain the intricacies of the rest of the series, it is a complete book with no cliffhangers. Enjoy!

About the Author

Teyla Branton grew up avidly reading science fiction and fantasy and watching Star Trek reruns with her large family. They lived on a little farm where she loved to visit the solitary cow and collect (and juggle) the eggs, usually making it back to the house with most of them intact. On that same farm she once owned thirty-three gerbils and eighteen cats, not a good mix, as it turns out. Teyla always had her nose in a book and daydreamed about someday creating her own worlds. She is now married, mostly grown up, and has seven kids, so life at her house can be very interesting (and loud), but writing keeps her sane. She thrives on the energy and daily amusement offered by her children, the semi-ordered chaos giving her a constant source of writing material. Grabbing any snatch of free time from her hectic life, Teyla writes novels full of mystery, romance, and imagination. She warns her children that if they don’t behave, they just might find themselves in her next book! She’s been known to wear pajamas all day when working on a deadline, and is often distracted enough to burn dinner. (Okay, pretty much 90% of the time.) A sign on her office door reads: DANGER. WRITER AT WORK. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. She loves writing fiction and traveling, and she hopes to write and travel a lot more. She also loves shooting guns, martial arts, and belly dancing. She has worked in the publishing business for over twenty years. Teyla writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. She also writes romance and romantic suspense under the name Rachel Branton. For more information or to hear about new releases, please visit

A good start to a series! A girl has been missing for three days and her desperate parents insist that Detective Shannon Martin ask Autumn Rain to use her psychic ability to help in the search. Detective Martin believes Autumn is a charlatan but when she is able to offer information that no one else can, he either has to consider her a suspect in the abduction or accept that she might actually be a psychic. It was an enjoyable read but I wish it had been longer. Just when I was really getting into the story it ended! I would like to read more books in the series to see where the characters lead.. I received a free copy but my review is voluntary.
