From New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author, Rebecca York

A woman's voice on the broken radio of an antique car sends Decorah agent Jonah Ranger on a dangerous mission to save her life. She's Alice Davenport, a man is holding her captive, and she's sending out a desperate telepathic plea for help.

Using his extrasensory abilities, he contacts her mind to mind. Jolting his talent to the maximum, he's able to project himself to her prison. But since neither of them knows where she's being held, rescue seems impossible. Still, in the darkness of her cell, he offers what comfort he can.

Jonah figures out how to send his consciousness to Alice's cell, where he looks like a ghost at first.

 

EXCERPT:

Alice pushed off the bed, steadying herself before she took a step toward him. Then, before she could tell herself it was a bad idea, she reached around his body and clasped him in her arms. She hadn't even known if it was possible to hold onto him, but she felt his substance. When she closed her eyes to shut out his ghostly image, he felt even more solid and real. From his appearance, she had expected him to be cold--like a ghost. But he seemed to be the same temperature as the room.

She heard him make a small sound as she felt him circle her shoulders. His arms came up slowly, as though he had wondered the same thing as she about touching.

I can feel you, they both said at the same time.

Yes.

Being clasped in his strong embrace was magic. And if she kept her eyes closed, she could pretend he was well and truly here.

As she laid her head against his shoulder, he whispered in her mind, I'm going to get you out of here.

I know, she answered. And at that moment, against all odds, she believed him.

First, we have to figure out where you are.

Yes. She clung to him, swaying in his arms, marveling at how wonderful something so simple could be. She had had no normal human contact since Hayward had abducted her. This wasn't exactly normal, but it was a lot better than anything she had experienced with the monster who had brought her to this place. The sensation of Jonah's strong arms encircling her was intoxicating, but she needed more.

It is in one man's true nature to remain by the side of the woman he loves, rather than live without her in his own universe...

Landscape architect Logan Marshall is out for a jog - in his werewolf form - when a trap catches his paw. As it saps his strength, he is saved by another werewolf, who - to Logan's amazement - is female.

Female werewolves aren't supposed to exist. But Rinna is a shape-shifter from another dimension who's traveled through a portal to this world. And the trap that ensnared Logan was set by her former captor and was meant for her...

But as soon as Rinna and Logan touch, an electrifying bond forms between them. Unable to resist his desire for Rinna, in all her many forms, Logan will have to earn her trust and travel through both dimensions to save her - and Earth - from the wrath of her enemy...
