Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
Series: Arcane Society #5
Genre: Contemporary paranormal romance (not quite enough sex or violence to be in the "sexy pentacle tattoo" genre)
Copyright Date: 2008
Cover: A translucent hot man wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, and sunglasses looks over his shoulder. You can see a beachfront cityscape behind and through him.
First line: "Martin was going to kill her."
Best part: The theme of damaged people moving beyond their pasts and creating family.
Worst part: The plot felt very familiar. You think for a whole series she could at least come up with two plots and alternate them? In one, people take a formula that enhances their psychic abilities but also makes them insane. In the other, perhaps, people kill each other for sheer meanness, money, or anger?
Recommended for: Fans of Krentz. You do not have to have read other books in the series.

Grace Renquist is living a lie. She changed her identity and hid the extent of her psychic gifts after she killed a man in self-defense.
Luther Malone is down and out. A former cop, his last assignment left him with a permanent limp and a new awareness of his own mortality.
The assignment that brings them together is much more dangerous than it appears - is the same true of their instant attraction for each other?
More of the same, and the same is good - up to a point. B-. I think it's one of the better books in the series but they are starting to blur a bit in my mind.
