"If you like telepathic/telekinetic love stories, this is definitely for you."
Teo Sandoval, called *El Rayo*, is a recluse, shunned by
the people of his town because they were afraid of his
powers. Teo had telepathic and telekinetic skills, as well
as the ability to heal. When Melanie Daniels comes into his
life, begging for him to help train her young son with the
same abilities, he wants desperately to refuse. She is a
danger to him, because her love threatens to bring up
ghosts of his past, ghosts which he had hoped to exorcise
through indifference. Melanie is running away from the PRI,
the Psionic Research Institute, who want to take her child
and run test after test on him and his abilities. She will
do anything to keep Chris out of danger and out of their
hands, and makes a bargain with Teo that goes against all
Good writing, good story flow, good *story*. I could see
Teo's constant struggle against his love for Melanie, and
it wasn't something that didn't have a purpose. He was
trying to save her, as well as himself, from his love. He
was a great tortured hero, as passionate in love as he was
with his powers. If you like telepathic/telekinetic love
stories, this is definitely for you.

Devil's bargain . . .
Teo Sandoval's unearthly power caused storms to rage and
lightning to tear across the sky. Tall, dark and brooding,
he was called the devil's spawn by some. His laughter held
no humor, and conjured images of smoke and fire. He wanted
nothing to do with society. Until one night Melanie Daniels
swept into his life, pleading for his help . . .
Melanie was desperate. Scared. Fleeing from unscrupulous
scientists who wanted to control her son's telekinetic
abilities. She would do anything to save her baby -- even
if it meant seeking out the compelling man whose caresses
unleashed a dark yearning within her. Even if it meant
becoming the devil's woman . . .
