Book Blurb:

Bounty hunter Rafe Montana is a Seer, descended from the fabled Atlanteans. He uses his inherited power to “see” criminals across the globe and track them down, and he’s just started on a new case. Danny Cangialosi is accused of disappearing with a stolen car…but for the first time in his life, when Rafe goes looking, he is unable to “see” him. Instead, his search leads him to Danny’s stubborn, meddling, and very cute stepsister, Cara McGaffigan.

Cara is looking for Danny, too, but not to turn him in. He is her brother, after all, and she’s convinced he has a good heart. If she can just find him before the cops do, she’ll figure out a way to get him out of this. But Cara didn’t count on a scorching-hot bounty hunter getting in her way.

Despite instant chemistry, Rafe and Cara know they’re never going to see eye-to-eye when it comes to Danny. What they don’t know is that Danny didn’t just steal a car—he stole a precious stone, a stone right out of the legends of Atlantis. It holds powers they can only dream of…and its owner wants it back.

This is the first book I’ve read by Debra Mullins and it won’t be the last. I love paranormal romance but this took a slight twist and took you back to the history of atlantis which I loved. The hero Rafe Montana is running from his past and trying to control who/what he is and the heroine Cara McGaffigan is trying to find her stepbrother who has jumped bail after stealing a car from his boss which turns out to have a stone that many people are willing to kill for. Cara soon finds herself doing things unconsciously and Rafe realizes that someone has been bending her to their will. Eventually they end up working together to find Danny, Cara’s stepbrother, as Rafe is the bounty hunter assigned to find him. As their adventure begins Rafe realizes that Cara’s life is endanger and that she has a strong link to his crystal and the “Hunter” side of him. The attraction they have for each other is strong and they soon find out that she is the one thing that can tame the Hunter and energize him in seconds rather than the days it takes which is what they need while they fight their enemies. Debra Mullins keeps you on your toes with false leads, has you believing someone is a bad guy only to find out they are one of the good guys and keeps things twisting back and forth to the very end. I’m hoping there are more books to come because I’d love to read more about the Montana family and the other Atlanteans that we are introduced to .

Grade: A+
