Arianna Hart is going on my ‘authors to watch’ list. She tells very good, very sexy stories without sacrificing emotional growth and relationship building.
Talia is an empath who must shield herself from others emotions. Most of the time it works, with two exceptions. She can’t block especially strong senders, and she can’t block the strong emotions of those she cares about. So when her good friend and co-worker is kidnapped by a man who exudes evil, Talia is determined to do everything she can to help catch this devil.
Finn is a cop who is desperately trying to find a lead, any lead, on the wacko who has kidnapped a series of women. Although none of them have turned up dead, that still leaves the ominious question of what he IS doing with them! When he learns of Talia’s empath abilities, he knows that it doesn’t matter how attracted he is to her, he’ll have to use any help he can get…especially once the Mayor’s daughter joins the ranks of the missing.
Not one of her strongest stories, but still had a lot of good points. Hot guy afraid to ‘open up’, shy girl who needs to ‘close down’. He’s so strongly attracted to her, he makes bonehead relationship mistakes. She doesn’t just take it, she makes him pay!! Just a fun read.
