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.

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....
When I got the email about this book I totally freaked. I have been a huge Maya Banks fan for years. When I got the book in the mail??!! I fell in love, the cover is amazing I loved it and of course the story sounds intriguing.  When I got this it as listed a romantic suspense without letting me know there is a hint of paranormal/ psychic mystery involved and when I read that I was even more hooked. 

As I was reading I kept looking at the few pages left and started freaking out. Like OMiGawd nooo I can't wait for the second book to come out *which is in January 2015* to know what happens.  I do want to know more about the brothers, Eliza & Dean, I could really love more from them.

The story was action packed and moved quickly.  From the beginning we knew once Caleb found her he unleashed something he had no idea was out there.  The story resolved well but man I was wondering how long each person will take to know what was happening.  The thing that bugged me was why no one else asked who the heck was filming.  Simple question right??

There are a few loose ends but I figure the next two books will answer those questions.  And I can't wait to see what happens then.  I do give trigger warnings for those who need it.  I do wish the side characters were more developed and fleshed out, as I'm sure they are going to be integral to the other stories.  Even though I loved the story it felt like for a while the main characters weren't completely fleshed out.  Things were stated like we knew the characters from other books but since this is a new series that's not possible. 

I loved the action and the twists and turns Maya took us on and I can't wait to read the others in the series. This flew by and I enjoyed everything. I don't want to give too detailed a review because anything can be a spoiler, but just know the characters were wonderful, I loved Ramie, she was hurt and hiding from the world and what her powers could do, but she couldn't leave someone else in the kind of hell that she had known. Caleb at first was ruthless simply because he couldn't believe that someone who had her talents would seclude themselves when people needed her. As they grew and learnt more from each other and about each other Caleb began to understand the cost of Ramie's "gift". 
It's a fantastic fast paced read and I highly recommend it my loves and of course, 
Happy Reading
