Once again, Karla Brandenburg gives her readers an intriguing paranormal romance.
She presents believable normal to paranormal experiences with informative history to make the reading flow smoothly.
The story is not in excess of characters. Each one has a purpose whether active as the heroine, Marissa, and the hero, wolf: or emotional, preternatural as with Great Uncle Balk, the Secret Keeper.
Marissa has a good life with a successful bakery and coffee shop. While on her frigid trek to start the breads, donuts and her famous sticky buns, she has a moment, not the first 'quiet moment' as described by her mother and Uncle Balk. As she approaches a stop light, she notices a majestic five point buck standing in a misty meadow and time seems to stand still for a moment. It is just the two of them, eye to eye...special...cosmic. Reality returns as her new car is suddenly rear ended by the handsome Wolf Harper, heir and executor to the Harper Electronics, Inc. and Harper Estate.
Today, this her 25th birthday as a gift from her Great Uncle Blat, he passes on the family legacy. She is a Kundigerin, a secret psychic power she possesses which, with but a touch, allows her to know things about the person. But it is a 'by the seat of your pants' situation as her beloved Uncle dies before providing much tutelage.
With the realization of her legacy and a budding romance with Wolf, the dangers that accompany her newly realized powers begin. First, with a break in at her apartment followed by attempts on her life. At the same time, Wolf finds the monetary problems of Hangar Inc. are a result of inventory diversion and reabsorbtion. With the aide of Marissa's insight and Wolf's bravery and love, they wage war on the unknown players set out to sabotage the manor and their livelihoods with some surprising assistance.
