An exciting, new Urban Fantasy Romance release.

After seven years on the run, Dr. Kara Cantrell believes she and her son, Alex, are safe. She’s wrong.

Kara settles in the sleepy town of Zorro, Texas, convinced that she and her child have escaped the sinister reach of a supernatural underworld. But the appearance of Damien Morgan, a dangerous, alluring man with superhuman abilities, upends her quiet existence. Damien realizes that Alex is a fledgling Sentinel, and Kara is a matched, psychic conductor for him. She wants nothing to do with him, refusing to revisit the hell she experienced seven years ago. But she has no choice, as her son is projecting his abilities, leaving him vulnerable to unseen forces. Not only that, but someone—or something—is murdering people in Zorro. Kara is forced to work with Damien, tapping into a mystical link that triggers desires both of them must ignore. But as they work together to protect her son, and to track the killer, evil stalks them, reaching out—with the touch . . . of darkness.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Kara has settled in the small town of Zorro, Texas with her son Alex.  She wants a normal life.  She is a conductor but refuses to put herself through that again, after she lost her husband Richard who was a Sentinel.  Unfortunately Alex is showing signs of powers.  When a stranger shows up in Zorro, Kara can feel his power.  She knows he is a Sentinel and refuses to let him know about Alex.  She will do anything to keep her son safe.
Damien Morgan is following the power trail.  He is hunting Belians and Alex is a surprise he encounters as he searches.  Kara doesn’t want her son in that dangerous life, but when a Belian is in Zorro killing innocent people, she has to make some tough decisions.  Her son needs protected and the Belian needs to be stopped.  She has to team up with Morgan and conduct once again.
The idea of this book was interesting but Kara was over the top dramatic.  She was too na├»ve for my liking.  I didn’t like how she believed that past life would go away if she ran far enough.  That was ridiculous.
Morgan was very distant and almost came across as superior in attitude.  The first half of the story was not my favorite.  Once Kara stopped fighting the situation and agreed to Morgan’s help with Alex, things started moving forward.  I constantly shook my head at Kara’s stubbornness and fear.  I wanted to smack some sense into her.

I did like her character at the end of the story.  She was able to turn her attitude around and be courageous.  I liked the final scenes as Kara and Morgan worked together to save Zorro.  The ending was worth the read.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
