Everything Emma Thompson owns fits in a suitcase she moves from one roach infested motel to another. She and Jake, her five year old son who can see the future, are running from the men intent on taking him. Emma will do anything to protect him even when it means accepting the help of a stranger named Will. Jake insists she needs Will, but Emma's never needed help before. And even though she's learned to trust her son, it doesn't mean she trusts Will.
Mercenary Will Davenport lives in the moment. Hauling Emma to South Dakota should have been an easy job, but his employer neglected to tell him about Emma's freaky son and the gunmen hot on her trail. Instinct tells him this job is trouble, but nothing can prepare him for Jake's proclamation that Will is The Chosen One, who must protect Emma from the men hunting her power. A power she doesn't know she has.
Will protects Emma and Jake on a cross-country chase from the men pursuing them, while struggling with memories from his past, his apprehension of Jake, and his growing attraction to Emma. Will's overwhelming urge to protect Emma surprises him, especially since it has nothing to do with his paycheck and possibly everything to do with the tattoo Jake branded on his arm. Rich and powerful men are desperate to capture Emma, and Will must discover why before it's too late.
I give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
This book was fast-paced, heart-pounding goodness! The only reason why I took away a 1/2 star is because. . .there were no sex scenes.
I know. I know.
But there were just so many opportunities to give me a hot and steamy scene. So if you love your paranormal romance clean, then this is the book for you.
Okay so let's discuss the characters.
Emma is not your average heroine. She's a courageous mother, desperatly trying to keep her son alive. I'm a mother with four rugrats, so I immediatly loved Emma.
All and all, this was a great book! Catch the next two in the series:
