After we step out into the chilly night, I take Jorge’s hand. “So where are we going?”
He points to Adam and Fiona’s house. “You up for walking?”
“I think I can do a quarter mile.”
He offers me his arm with a wink. “My lady.” It’s the same thing he said the first time he led me to his bedroom to have sex. If nothing else, this night will probably end with that particular activity.
I take his arm and we walk out of the pool of the light over the porch. It’s a cold night, but clear. Snow crunches under our feet as we walk, our steps in sync. Through our connection, I feel his comfort walking next to me, and it reminds me of other walks we’ve taken at night. It’s good to have a boyfriend with a cat’s night vision.
Will he soon by my fiancée with a cat’s night vision? A thrill of anticipation runs through me. Underneath the ease of walking side by side, enjoying each other’s presence, I pick up a note of anticipation, or maybe even a bit of anxiety, from him too.
“I hope you don’t mind that our dinner is at my brother’s house. It’s practically impossible to find a private room on Christmas and I wanted us to be alone. I also know how much you love my cooking.”
She’s unready to face her past, but she may have no choice.
It may be her best friend who gets surprisingly accurate hunches about the future, but Chloe just knows something big –and bad—is about to happen. She telepathically communicates with animals and shape-shifters, but her growing psychic abilities are beginning to scare her. She suspects her mother also had abilities, and when those powers grew beyond her control, she left her daughter and husband when Chloe was only ten.
Despite her worries, she won’t let anything interrupt her trip to Scotland to meet her shape-shifter boyfriend’s family. Meeting Jorge’s close-knit family and spending the Holidays with them is worry enough!
When his sister goes missing, her disappearance is linked to a shadowy organization that knows exactly how to hide her from her shape-shifting relatives’ tracking ability. What they don’t count on is Chloe’s psychic gift.
In the rush to find Jorge’s sister, Chloe loses control of her ability and accidentally harms an animal’s psyche. Ridden with guilt, she’s afraid her ability just might destroy her relationship with Jorge. She isn’t ready to find her mother and face her past, but she may not have a choice if she wants to ensure she never harms anyone again.
