Love is a flame we embrace with open arms.
Kiera’s years of training with her psychic brethren instilled the confidence to face any threat, paranormal or otherwise. After adopting her from the streets as a kid, the all-male band of warriors is all she’s ever known—or wanted until she meets Carlin.
Her twofold destiny includes protecting the life and work of a computer prodigy, and a mate who will pull her from death’s clutches. Though honor and duty are firmly ingrained in her character, her penchant for practical jokes keeps her warrior brothers in a constant state of anticipation and suspicion.
Over the past few months, she’s acquired an invisible, vicious stalker whose savage attacks leaves her with bruises and scars.
Carlin, an electronics genius, has developed software and hardware that could destroy any institution or government. His search to prove the impossible lands him in the cross hairs of a psychotic stalker. After reaching the pinnacle in his field, he yearns for a family, kids that will drive him to distraction and a wife to whom he’d dedicate his life.
Since kidnapping Kyley as an infant, Roth has allowed his sociopathic OCD free reign, knowing that fate has decreed he will one day rule the masses. Until the time he unleashes biologic, chemical, and financial terrorism, he collects people with psychic abilities.
Holding Kyley prisoner has amused him, knowing one day she’d develop the talent needed to set his terrorist plans in motion. Since puberty, when her talents emerged, he’s kept her in line with inventive methods of sociopathic playtime and a constant flow of suppressant drugs.
With the guidance of her tutors and a lenient guard, Kyley has learned that her way of life isn’t normal, but recent events have taught her not to ask for help. If she has any hope of a normal life, or life at all, she must escape—soon. Once Roth sets his plan in motion, he will no longer need her—alive.
Christmas is only weeks away. Only this year, chaos will rise and destroy the U.S. unless Kyley can escape and find a force strong enough to stand up to her psychotic guardian. One night, while in a restaurant, a situation arises that forces an ultimatum, escape or die.
Taylor’s strong telekinetic power and military background allowed him to blend in seamlessly with the paranormal force working to help others with psychic abilities. When he happens upon a terrified young woman in a restaurant, helping her escape the clutches of her companion sets him on a new path filled with death and destruction. When he becomes aware that she’s survived years of torture, he suppresses his own desire in favor of helping her deal with the triggers that could send her into a state of catatonia.
From the moment Kiera saves Carlin’s life, fate sets in motion a series of events that opens her world to the sensuous allure of danger and desire. Can she keep Carlin and his work safe while evading the clutches of the psychopath stalking them?
