"Endearing and romantic"
Rayne, the descendant of a despotic psychic ruler, is in
hiding from the government. She must keep her psychic
abilities hidden, due to the backlash against psychics
stemming from her great-grandfather's days in power. She
lives a quiet life in a small rural community, working as a
farmer. She has become part of the community, away from the
prying eyes of the government and the Psychic Sensory
Unfortunately, the government has found her. The Agency
sends psychic Sean McDougal, one of its agents, to
investigate Rayne and determine if she is a threat to the
With Sean's arrival, Rayne suddenly finds her life
completely changed. Sean owns a farm near hers, so they
will see each other often—and the most surprising thing is
that she's found herself attracted to her new neighbour.
As the two become close, another man enters her life.
Suddenly, being a farmer is full of danger, and Rayne must
choose the right man to trust.
After reading another one of the related titles in this
ongoing story, I'd expected this book to have more action
and be more fast-paced. I was surprised to find that this
book focuses less on Sean's investigation, but more on the
growing relationship between Sean and Rayne, making this
story more of a romance than I'd expected. There's nothing
wrong with a romance, of course—it was just a bit
unexpected. Rayne's naïveté about love, sex and romance is
endearing, as is Sean's determination to protect her when
Rayne finds herself in danger.
I felt, however, that the conflict was a bit lacking,
particularly when Rayne finds out that Sean is a PSI agent.
I also felt that the introduction of the second man,
foreigner Anton, came out of left field and was quite out
of place with the rest of the story.
Overall it was an endearing and romantic read. If you're
looking for a book that's more focused on romance and less
on paranormal elements, then this book may be for you.
