I am a big fan of stories that feature those with extraordinary mental capabilities so this is a series that appeals to me immensely. Combine that with Shiloh Walker’s ability to create remarkably intense and unique characters who are extremely memorable and I am an extremely happy reader. I love the way there are cameos by some of the intriguing people from previous tales and I definitely hope there will be additional books that feature some of the secondary players from this story. Gus’ young charge is a fascinating combination of powerhouse and impressionable kid who is being honed by all of the stresses he is under and one wonders whether he will shatter from the pressure or get polished into an invaluable diamond. The amazing powers that are described encompass quite a range of abilities and the enigmatic Mr. Taylor Jones continues to manipulate the resources at his command and frustrate his agents, whetting one’s appetite for more hints about his background. I always look forward to more works from this talented author and this book is a wonderful example of her ability to create a vivid and enthralling story and I can only hope that the series continues to grow.
“The Protected” by Shiloh Walker is part of the enthralling ‘FBI Psychics’ series and features people with extraordinary mental abilities. Vaughnne MacMeans appeared in a previous story in this series and has had very traumatic experiences that she is trying to recuperate from. She reluctantly accepts an assignment to ‘babysit’ a pair of individuals who aren’t to know about her task but she is shocked to realize that her mental skills will be sorely tested by an ostensibly simple duty. Gus Hernandez and his young relative are shockingly tense and exhausted but their wary tolerance of their new neighbor is overridden by the danger that she seems to represent. Vaughnne’s reluctant attraction to both of them is tempered by her assessment that they represent just as much danger to her. The question becomes whether their alliance will be more harm than help and whether they will all survive to work out their relationship.
A new tale of danger and desire from national bestselling author Shiloh Walker featuring psychic FBI Agent Vaughnne MacMeans…
AN ASSIGNMENT SHE CAN’T REFUSE
Agent Vaughnne MacMeans would do anything to avoid setting foot in Orlando again. But her new assignment, keeping tabs on a psychic kid who may or may not be in danger, is forcing her right back to the city where her sister was murdered. And she didn’t count on a startling attraction to the boy’s guardian…
AN ATTRACTION HE CAN’T DENY
Protecting Alex is a priority for Gus. Gus may not understand the young man’s “gift” but he knows that some people would kill for it. When a beautiful stranger moves in next door, his impulse is to take the kid and bolt. But Gus has learned never to flee without a plan, and besides…she doesn’t exactly look like an assassin.
A GAME THEY’LL PLAY FOR KEEPS
But when some dangerous people from Gus’s past do catch up to him and Alex, it’s too late to run. His new neighbor is the last person he thought he could turn to, but Vaughnne isn’t just beautiful. She’s fearless. And she’s the only chance Gus and Alex have left.
