Expert:

Born with an empathetic healing ability, Shaye’s life has been filled with the rejection of people who didn’t understand her gift. With only a few close friends, she lives a nomadic lifestyle as a traveling nurse.
Shaye knew she was different since she was a child, but never really understood it. When her latest assignment brings her to a small town in Tennessee, she never expected it to change her life. Spending a day exploring, her powers draw her to the large house on the outskirts of town. Shaye finds a man being tortured and uses her gifts to save him. As she recovers from healing him, she discovers that she is his fated mate. Growing up human, her worldview is blown wide open when she is introduced to a world where magic and paranormal creatures exist, including vampires, werewolves, and Fae.
Her mate, Rolf, is caring and protective. Although Shaye saved him once, he is still in danger. His father wants to either use him for his power or kill him if he resists. With multiple attempts to end Rolf’s life, can Shaye, Rolf, and their friends defeat this monster or will their love end before it fully begins?

PROLOGUE

Shaye had always been able to sense things others couldn’t. She could sense when people were in pain, everything from a simple papercut to someone dying. As a child, her parents encouraged, well, really forced, her to hide her abilities. They thought it was unnatural. Her mother had blamed it on her being born on Halloween at the witching hour. As she grew older, she tried researching to find out more about herself, her abilities, how to control them. From what she could tell based on her research, she thought she was a sort of empath, mostly dealing with healing and a dash of telepathy thrown in. The telepathy was extremely weak. She could feel others’ pain when she was close to them but could only pick up on someone’s pain from far away if they were really projecting. She didn’t seem to have any other telepathic gifts, no reading people’s thoughts or talking to other people in their minds.

Unfortunately, when she was younger there had been no one there to teach her to shield herself, so she felt people’s pain every day unless she was extremely isolated. As she grew older, she felt that she had been given this gift for a reason and intended to help as many as she could. At age eighteen, her parents pushed her out of their home. She found a temporary home in New Orleans where she attended LSU for nursing. Shaye had been lucky enough that her friend from high school had left with her; they both attended LSU and they had supported each other through college. It was the New Orleans culture that enabled her to embrace her gifts. She was able to make a few contacts that taught her the basics of shielding herself and even gained a few close friends. It also helped that New Orleans had so many gifted people living there that could shield themselves, so she was surrounded by at least a little bumper of protection from their pain.

After graduation, she felt a calling to leave her adopted hometown and became a traveling nurse. Most places didn’t have as many gifted people as New Orleans, so it was hard to stay in one place for too long if there was a high population density. Even with the basic shields, the pain could become overwhelming. Once it became too much, or people began to notice how quickly her patients improved, she would move on. People often feared what they did not understand, and she didn’t want to attract too much attention. She had made a few friends on her travels across the country and kept in touch with them as often as she could. Some were normal people who simply accepted the extraordinary, others had unusual skills like she did. Each one brought something new to her life and kept her grounded when she thought the pain of the world would drive her insane. They had all grown adept at shielding themselves from her and were the only ones she could be near at times.

Today was looking to be a good day. She had about a week off before starting her new job and had managed to get a full night’s sleep and meditated enough that her minor shields were in place again. There was an outdoor market with a new coffee shop that she was eager to try. Eventually, her shields would start to wear down again. It wasn’t often that she got a day like this, so she intended to enjoy it for as long as it lasted.

However, fate seemed to have a different agenda for her today.
