Texas Lightning

Guardians of the Gifted

Texas Lightning is a sexy and intriguing quick read. This is an introduction for me into the Guardians of the Gifted series by Alyson Conrad and one I enjoyed. The plot was easy to follow and the characters are developed well for a romance of less than 100 pages. Our hero, Chase, is posing as a Detroit cop visiting Texas, all the while doing his own investigation into paranormal events. The heroine, Andrea, is a tough as nails Texas Ranger working on her own case that, unknown to her, ties into the reason Chase is in Texas. These two have met before and had a brief affair, so sparks ignite a fire that has been smoldering between them to once again consume them in a passion filled adventure. The action and romance will have you quickly absorbed in the story and leaves you intrigued enough about the paranormal elements to want to read more in the series. If you are looking for a quick read then you will find Texas Lightning can satisfy that need with good characters and a plot that flows smoothly.

A story set in the world of the Guardians of the Gifted series

Hot on the trail of the manufacturer of a deadly new drug, Texas Ranger Andrea Sellers is not happy about babysitting a visiting cop from Michigan. Especially since he’s a former lover who doesn’t seem to remember that she ever existed.

Chase McGovern, an undercover paranormal investigator posing as a Detroit cop, is also seeking the source of the drug because it strips supernaturals of their powers. Keeping his true purpose a secret isn’t easy when he’s partnered with the smart and sexy Texan—and keeping his hands off her is impossible.

All it takes is one dinner to charge up their old electricity in bed and out, but will a killer take away their second chance at love?
