Book 2 of the Urban Fantasy Romance series, The Sentinels
Since a brutal attack on her sister eleven years ago, Marla Reynolds has been emotionally frozen—but one man’s passion could melt her defenses . . .
For the past eleven years, Marla has avoided relationships with men. Then she meets Luke Paxton in a Houston bar and is upended by an intense attraction she doesn’t understand. But Luke does—it is an energy he must harness to achieve his goals. He is a Sentinel, a member of an ancient superhuman race. His purpose on Earth is to track unimaginable evil, and he needs Marla—willing or not—to help him focus his psychic powers. Kidnapped by Luke, who insists he’s a reincarnated Atlantian and that she’s a matched conductor for him, Marla thinks he’s totally crazy. But his superpowers and the undeniable link between them convince her otherwise. She agrees to work with him to track down a bomber that’s leaving a path of destruction across Texas. Luke tries to resist his growing feelings for Marla, but as he draws her deeper into a supernatural world, he finds himself torn between protecting humanity—or yielding to the fire of her touch . . .
