Being called creepy can be hard on your self-esteem -- even for an attractive, independent woman like Raine Tallentyre. That's what happened when she made the mistake of revealing her paranormal abilities, bringing her most recent romantic relationship to a hasty end. Her aunt Vella, a gifted but troubled soul, told her years ago to keep her talents a secret. And now that poor Aunt Vella -- her last blood relative -- has died, Raine has resigned herself to a lonely life ... But when she journeys to Shelbyville, Washington, to clear out her aunt's house -- trying to ignore the locals' comments about the "witch" and the "crazy lady" -- Raine's highly developed sensitivity leads her to a horrifying discovery: a young woman, bound and terrified, in a basement storage locker. The victim has survived, and the culprit is on the loose. Without warning, a new man enters Raine's life -- investigator Zack Jones. Surprisingly, Zack isn't repelled by her powers: in fact, he has his own. While Raine hears voices, Zack sees visions, and within hours of their meeting, Raine experiences an intense, thrilling intimacy -- mental, emotional, and physical -- that she never dared to expect.

Was a little different. The story line was a little weird with the abilities of a " character called a witch". Reading another one of her books and it along the same line as this one. Just weird!

another of the arcane series. I enjoyed this book as well it did keep me somewhat on edge as Raine stumbles into danger.

This was okay. The romance between Zack Jones and Raine Tallentyre, each with psychic abilities, gets into the cheesy, chick flick type mode.
