Today we welcome Maya Banks to The Pond to celebrate the first book in her new Slow Burn trilogy.
We meet the Devereaux family in Keep Me Safe – Caleb, Beau, Quinn, and Tori. Caleb is frantic to find Ramie St. Claire, who formerly assisted police find kidnap victims with her psychic gift. In hiding after her last case which nearly did her in, Ramie’s life is about to change even more, running from a stalker who has a special connection to her. It’s Caleb she turns to, to help keep her safe.
Ms. Banks has combined the paranormal and romantic suspense to give readers a fast-paced read that keeps the pages turning late into the night. And wait until you meet the villain in this story. One scary piece of work. I’m only a few days past finishing this book and already I want the next in hand.
When Caleb Devereaux’s younger sister is kidnapped, this scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot. While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.
Deeply remorseful for the pain he’s caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie’s vanished forever, she reappears. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Now, Caleb will do risk everything to protect her— including his heart. . .
