REVIEW

"A Must Read for Paranormal Fans!"

Emily is a psychologist (the Monster Doc), who treats the Others (supernatural creatures.) She can read the Others' minds and this is how she helps them. She is asked to work with the police in solving a case where it is believed an Other is responsible.

Colin is a detective and a shifter. No one knows he is one of the Others and he'd like to keep it that way. When he realizes what Emily can do, he fears she'll reveal his secret. He confronts her, planning to convince her not to say anything. He didn't expect the immediate attraction to her. The animal side of him wants to claim her as his, which confuses his senses. She's human and a lady out of his league ... or so he thinks.

Emily doesn't push him away when by all rights she should stay clear of him. Shifters are unpredictable, violent, and possessive. So why can't she keep her hands off him?

Ms. Eden's story is intense with the sizzling romance and the race to find the killer. Colin and Emily both have a past where they need time to heal and trust and the two are a perfect match. Emily understands the beast that Colin keeps reigned in at all times. He can be himself with her without fear of rejection and she in turn can trust him not to hurt her. He's all about protecting his mate. I was immediately drawn into the paranormal world where the preternatural live among the humans, blending in as much as possible. I liked how the Others had hang-ups—like a vampire who can't stand the sight of blood and shifter who is afraid to shift because of a tragic event in his life.

This tale has it all: tantalizing romance, humor, a mystery to solve and a monster to catch. This is a definite keeper on my shelf!

SUMMARY

When night falls, passions rise...

**A PNR Reviewer Top Pick**

In her sexy and suspenseful new novel, Cynthia Eden introduces readers to a seductive world where powerful night creatures ignite dark, dangerous hungers.

Emily Drake is a psychologist with a very special talent, thanks to her empathic power, she can touch the thoughts and emotions of her patients. And Emily's patients, well, they aren't exactly typical either; they're Other - vampires, demons, all of the creatures that humans fear in the darkness of the night.

When one of the Other starts killing humans, Emily is pulled into the investigation. Colin Gyth, the lead detective on the case, doesn't trust her, and, since Emily senses he's a Shifter, a being born with the ability to transform into an animal, the feeling is pretty mutual. Never trust anything born with two faces - that was Emily's motto. However, she and Colin are forced to put aside their misgivings and work together once Emily officially joins the investigation as a profiler.

While Emily and Colin search to unmask the killer, an unexpected passion grows between them. Burned in the past by those he'd trusted, Colin had never thought he'd let a woman get to close to him again, especially a woman with a dangerous power like Emily's. Yet he finds that he can't resist her. There's something about the reserved Doctor Drake that calls to him, and the beast within the man recognizes his mate. But when the killer sets his sights on Emily, Colin will have to risk his life in order to protect the woman he craves more than anything else, and Emily will have to use her gift to look into the very heart of evil in order to defeat the monster hiding in the shadows.
