A skeptical reporter who witnesses the unbelievable…
It’s the late 1970’s, and tenacious journalism student Sarah McKenn doesn’t believe the rumors of strange happenings in her small college town of Fort Winston, Colorado. But a supernatural event she experiences while chasing down a story for her school's newspaper leaves her questioning everything. In her quest for understanding, she meets and falls for Chris, the only man she believes can help her unravel the truth.
A psychology student determined to prove his psychic talents are real…
Christian Levine is on the cusp of a bright future as a research psychologist when he agrees to participate in a secret experiment at the request of his mentor. Though it’s the perfect opportunity to prove his psychic abilities, the project turns deadly when Chris discovers the real motivation of the man in control of it all. Chris is forced to choose between his own freedom or saving the lives of his mentor and Sarah─the woman he loves.
A bond that transcends all boundaries…
The chemistry between Sarah and Chris surprises them—a soul-filling passion and a deep psychic connection neither thought possible. Can they discover what their bond means before their lives are ripped apart?
Despite her misgivings, she knew she was falling in love with him and that scared the crap out of her. He was complicated, and was probably leaving the state next year, to go back to New York or wherever his career would take him. She could not afford to be distracted and definitely did not want to have her heart broken. And frankly, this psychic thing between them scared her a little, too. Pulling away from him was the sensible thing to do, and only way she could protect herself. But he kept showing up, and ruining her resolve in the process. She felt his eyes on her while folding her clothes, but he said nothing. When the task was done, she looked up at him, trying to find a way to get him to leave without hurting his feelings. Instead, he pulled her into his arms and kissed her. Well, one kiss won’t hurt, but after that, he has to go.
This book started out slow and a bit confusing until it all came together for me. It took me a while to figure out what was going on and how all the characters came together. When the story started to pick up, I was hooked and couldn't put the book down. Unexplained things are happening and Sarah is determined to make a story out of it. She never planned to get so involved and fall in love at the same time. Go into this book with an open mind, explore the weirdness and relive the 70s all over again.
When you can’t believe what you see…
In the summer of 1978, photographer Zac Daley is the only one who sees a young woman in the lake, crying for help. When she shows up in his photos, and begins sending him cryptic messages, he must find out why.
When you don’t believe what you’re told…
Amanda Bresky has not given up on Zac, even though her parents have forbidden her to see him. They can’t see past his long hair and hippie clothes, and even Zac himself has told her they aren’t a good match. He wants no part of a relationship, and thinks they should just remain friends. But she is determined to break through to his heart, whatever it takes.
When the truth is buried in the past…
Zac’s interest in the mysterious girl in the lake becomes an obsession when she appears, demanding he deliver a message for her. With Amanda’s help, he sets out to solve the mystery, but at a cost neither of them could foresee. Haunted by his own past, Zac is determined to leave Fort Winston, Colorado as soon as possible─but a wayward ghost and a certain hot-blooded redhead are tempting him to stay.
His hands roamed her body, feeling every curve. He wanted to absorb her into his skin, become one with her. Touching her was not enough. He couldn’t find the usual words of protest, did not have the willpower to push her away this time. He knew she wanted to be his, and he wanted to be hers. Logic and reason had no place here, and for the first time, he knew it was meant to be. She pulled away, her lips swollen and reddish-pink. “Please Zac, let me stay this time. Don’t push me away.” He responded by flipping her over, onto her back. He laced his hands in hers. “I won’t. I’ll never send you away again.” And then he kissed her, pouring his overflowing feelings into every touch. It was as though a damn had burst, and he surprised himself with how deeply he felt it. But for now, he only wanted to make exquisite love to her, so no matter what happened later, she would never forget him, her first lover.
This book just jumped right into the story and had no problem understanding any of it. We meet Zac and Amanda in book 1 but only get a glimpse. We get the whole story finally.
Zac is a gifted photographer but there's something that he hasn't healed from. Amanda is determined to show him she wants more then just a friendship. She comes from a very sheltered household. Her mom is bat s**t crazy but mellows out by the end. She takes the role of leader a bit to far and drives Amanda crazy.
I loved this story because a) it has a mystery and b) I'm a sucker for finding out the truth, helping people heal and watching two people fall in love.
This involves a ghost that needs the truth to come and only Zac can help her.I devoured this book. I couldn't put it down for nothing. I did laugh during Peggy's speech on drugs and the name of the county they lived it. That made me laugh hard. This book was entertaining and kept your attention from beginning to end.
When the past seems brighter than the future…
It’s 1986─seven years since Christian Levine last heard from his lost love, Sarah McKenn. When an opportunity arises to leave his crumbling life in California and return to Fort Winston, Colorado, he hopes to rekindle more than memories. If he can find Sarah again, he plans to prove to her their psychic soul connection was more than just a phase two college kids went through.
When the future will save you from your past…
Sarah McKenn is about to leave Fort Winston, moving to Sedona, Arizona for a career opportunity she can’t pass up. She and her daughter Sophie are looking forward to their new adventure, but when two men come back into Sarah’s life at the same time, she has to decide whether to face the secrets of her past, or embrace her future and never look back.
When your life is no longer your own….
Sarah knows she must do what is best for her daughter, but can she ignore the explosive chemistry and weird psychic connection she still has with Chris? Or will her unresolved past destroy her chance for love, and a new life?
He pulled her to him, devouring her mouth with his own. Words still weren’t enough, and he needed her like a drug. Her arms came around his neck, and she kissed him back, making a small sound of desire. His arousal became evident and he pressed against her, backing her up against the counter. Her fingers were entwined in his hair. She pulled him to her hard, and he felt her teeth against his tongue. His need for her was crashing over him in tidal-wave fashion, but somewhere in his mind he knew he had to stop. She pulled her lips away from his, her breath ragged.
“We have to stop. Sophie…”
He was kissing his way down her neck. “I know…God, Sarah, I can’t take it much longer...I need you.”Pushing on his chest with her hands, she brought him back to cold reality. She slipped away from him just as Sophie returned to the kitchen.“Mamma, can I watch cartoons?”As she followed her daughter into the other room, he stood there in the kitchen, still breathing hard. The heat between his legs was dissipating, his heart returning to a normal beat. The craving, the need…that wasn’t going away anytime soon, if ever.
We catch a glimpse of Sarah in book 2 and Zac says something that makes you a little sad but kinda expected happening. I was encourage you to read book 1 first, so that you get how Chris and Sarah met and went thru. Life hasn't been kinda to Sarah in the past 5 years. She lost her mom, had a surprise come from a one big stand and now thanks to a friend passing away, the past is coming back to her. Things weren't going great for Chris either but knowing he gets to see Sarah again is refreshing. He still lives her and is determined to make her see it. There's a lot of drama in this book but it all works out in the end. It was perfect way to end this series. I was a bit unsure about this series at first but I'm really glad I took a chance on it and ended up really liking it. The characters are just one big family and you feel the love they have for each other. Also I loved seeing them grow up and change for the better or at least I hope so for Wes but I guess we'll see.
