Following a lifetime of captivity and torture, fate tosses Kyley into a world of freedom and opportunities, danger and espionage. During her inspirational journey, discovery of life’s offerings shores up her determination to conquer the fears that keep her from exploring a world where romance is more than a fantasy.

Her continued hard-won freedom hinges on the abilities of the paranormal group that rescued her. Always looking over her shoulder, she knows Roth must reacquire her to complete his plan for mass annihilation and anarchy.

Taylor’s telekinesis and special-ops training granted him seamless passage to work with Kenner’s paranormal unit. When he rescues a young waif from the clutches of her psychopathic guardian, he’s unprepared for the emotional backlash created by their connection.

The knowledge that her emotional baggage includes years of abuse dictates he help her conquer her triggers and fears. Aware she’s not encountered a kind touch, much less any expression of passion, he represses his own desires in order to teach her that not all physical contact includes pain. He longs to free her adventurous streak and inspire her to achieve emotional as well as physical confidence.

Since being adopted by her psychic warriors as a kid from the streets, Kiera’s never doubted her place in life or the direction of her path. Her unusual upbringing included weapons training, unique fighting skills, and how to maximize her paranormal abilities. After pulling Carlin, a computer prodigy, from death’s grasp, she learns you don’t always get to choose whom you love. Her destiny is twofold. Protect Carlin from the monster who wants to destroy the USA and find her mate—a man who will save her life, more than once.

A chance meeting between Kiera and Kyley sets off a chain of events they couldn’t prepare for and might not survive. Can the girls work together and prevent Roth from destroying the ones they love?

“Stop fidgeting, Kiera. You’ll make her nervous.”

“I can’t help it, Nich. What if she doesn’t like me?”

“Open the door and find out.”

When she did open the door, nothing could prepare her for the vision standing two feet away. Momentarily speechless, she gasped at the living reflection standing before her. Thoughts of what to do next failed her.

“Hi, I’m Nicholai. Come in, please.” He stepped back and gestured them all inside. A casually dressed man stepped across the threshold while the others held back. On either side of the door, Kiera’s white shepherds greeted Taylor’s shepherds in welcome appreciation.

“Hi, I’m Kenner.” The soft-spoken gentlemen shook Nicholai’s hand and then hers. “I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to meet you, Kiera.” In spite his words, the atmosphere felt thick, clogged with the uncertainty of what was to come. And what’s with this handshake?

“Come on, Kyley. It’s all cool.” Parker stood to Nicholai’s side with a wide grin on his face. “You’re never gonna want to leave this place.”

A low growl startled Kiera from her frozen state. The gentleman holding her sister’s hand glared daggers at Parker. “Buddy…” The word drew out in warning.

“You must be Taylor.” Kiera held out her hand and watched indecision flit across his face. Will he growl at me too? With apparent great reluctance, he let go of Kyley’s hand long enough to shake hers only to take Kyley in hand once again afterward.
