Linda Winstead Jones
Out of control…For years Echo Raintree has battled against the visions of disaster that sweep over her without warning. Now she’s determined to vanquish them. And there’s only one man who can help: wizard Ryder Duncan.Ryder has one objective: protect his daughter, Cassidy, from those who would use her exceptional powers for evil. Trusting Echo, with her ties to the infamous Raintree clan, seems reckless. But when Ryder’s village is invaded, Echo could be Ryder’s only hope of keeping his daughter safe. And, as the pair work together to defend Cassidy, an unexpected and fierce desire begins to burn between them…
When are you going to kiss me again?
The answer to that unasked question should be never. But damn, there was something irresistible about Echo Raintree. Instead of being horrified, she actually gave in to a small, secret smile that spoke volumes. She wanted him as much as he wanted her. The only difference was she had no idea how dangerous a deepening connection between them might be. For her. Dammit, he had to keep the woman out of his brain!
As powerful as she was—and lack of control aside, she was quite powerful—she could be more. The weather power that revealed her mood; her ability to see into his mind; her clear empathic abilities. If he didn’t know better he’d think she was like him. A sponge. A receptor.
A dangerous creature.
The two of them together could rule the world. Or burn it down around them.
“Echo …” Should he send her away or embrace her? Teach or shun? Pull her to him or make sure there were always thousands of miles between them?
