When Caleb Devereaux’s younger sister is kidnapped, this scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot.
While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.
Deeply remorseful for the pain he’s caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie’s vanished forever, she reappears. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Now, Caleb will risk everything to protect her—including his heart. . . .
A sizzling story of a woman who risks her life and her heart to find a wealthy man’s missing sister—the first novel in a sexy new romantic suspense series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks.
This was a different type of read for me and I really enjoyed it a lot.
Ramie St. Clare is not like other girls her age. She hiding. And Caleb Deveraux is set on finding her. See Ramie has a special gift, or curse. She is able to find missing persons my simply touching something that belonged to that person. Caleb’s younger sister has been kidnapped and Ramie is his last hope.
So when he finds her in a remote cabin in Colorado, after disappearing for over a year, he thinks he will finally be able to find his sister. The only thing is Ramie wants nothing to do with helping Caleb. Although she would love to, she just can’t go thru the physical pain it causes her. Caleb is desperate and so he forces his sisters scarf on Ramie and what happens next is pure horror for not only Ramie but Caleb too. After Ramie finds his sister Tori, Caleb is wrought with guilt..the pain and suffering that Ramie went through to help him, he could never repay her…Until a year later, when Ramie is the one seeking Caleb out to help her escape the stalker who will stop at nothing until Ramie is in his hands.
I really loved Caleb and his dedication to not only his family but to Ramie too. He understood her for day one. Giving her the love and support that she has been missing most of her life.
This book was full of suspense, tension and a hot romance to help the pages fly by. I love that this is part one of a three part series and can’t want for more!
My name is Maya Banks and I live in Texas with my husband and three children and our assortment of pets. I’m more of a cat person, but my daughter became convinced she NEEDED a dog. So convinced in fact that it became her mission to convince her father and me. She prepared a two page handwritten proposal that detailed WHY she needed a dog, and well, after I sent her to her father (I knew he wouldn’t tell her no) we embarked on the search for the perfect dog. The journey that was two hours away and that I got pulled over for speeding while I was on the phone with my agent who had an offer from a publisher for one of my books… The officer wasn’t impressed. He wrote me a ticket anyway. Thus, I now tell my daughter that her dog turned into one very expensive concession! But isn’t he cute?
When I’m not writing, I love to hunt and fish with my family. We all love the outdoors and go on family hunting trips every year. We also love to travel. One of our more recent trips was to Scotland, which was every bit as comical as National Lampoon’s European Vacation. You know the part about “Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament” as they went round and round the roundabouts? Yeah, that was us, only we couldn’t even get out of the airport in Glasgow without hitting three of those suckers.
Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of a writing career is getting to meet so many wonderful readers. There’s nothing better than dishing books with someone who loves the romance genre as much as I do. Romance readers are passionate and vocal. We love our books, love our happily ever afters, and we love to spend time talking to others about our favorites. THIS is why I love my job so much, and I’m so grateful to readers who gave ME a chance when I began my career. So thank you.
