Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy-dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor’s closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of a catastrophic mental fracture…
Sophia Russo is a Justice-Psy, cursed with the ability to retrieve memories from men and women so twisted even veteran cops keep their distance. Appointed as Max’s liaison with the Psy, she finds herself fascinated by this human, her frozen heart threatening to thaw with forbidden emotion. But, her mind filled with other people’s nightmares, other people’s evil, she’s standing on the border between sanity and a silken darkness that urges her to take justice into her own hands, to become judge, jury…and executioner…
My obsession continues.
I love this book, this series. What a master this author is, weaving a story where there is so much uncertainty, so many surprises, and so much sensual passion.
The resolution is so uncertain, this author creates a situation that has no answer, no fix. And just when she has me doubting things can ever work out, a way appears. I love that.
No author has surprised me as much as this one has. One surprise in this book had me gasping out loud. Never saw that coming. No one's allegiance seems clear, at least among the Psy. I have no doubts where the changelings stand but I was pretty shocked at some of the turns among the Psy. I love that EIGHT books in, I still don't know everything and this world still holds me captive.
Then the way this author writes so sensually. Sophia can't handle being touched. How does romance happen without touch? Oh it does. Sexy and hot, Max is patient and looks out for his J until touch can happen. So worth the wait.
This the second one in the series that I've read without the central characters not being a changeling and I continue to be amazed that I love these stories anyway. The changelings are still there at every turn with there protective ways and pack mentality. And Max may not be a changeling but the man is an animal in so many ways.
I love these books. I've discovered the cache of free short stories that go with this series on the authors website. And it's my next indulgence.
Don't miss these books; they are the ultimate sensual indulgence for paranormal lovers.
