Blurb:   She sees brief glimpses of the future…

Nika and Alena Brennan will do anything to kill a vicious Russian crime boss and they’re using his only son to get to him. Yet when the time comes to execute their plan, psychic Nika hesitates due to an unexpected entanglement with sexy security expert Declan Gallagher. When her sister is kidnapped and all their carefully laid plans go awry, Nika must depend on Declan and her mortal enemy’s son to get her sister back.

He invades her dreams and teases her with sensual pleasures…

As a dream walker, Declan is capable of seeing anyone’s innermost thoughts as they sleep. With Nika, however, he finds himself playing a deadly, seductive game. He knows she’s not who she says she is and he’s determined to find out the real reason she’s in Miami before she gets herself or someone else killed.

Time is running out…

Nika’s window of opportunity is closing to save her sister and find a way to protect their secrets without landing them both in jail. With innocent lives at stake, Nika must decide if the retribution she’s waited a lifetime for is worth losing the man who has won her heart.

Thoughts:  This was the first book I’ve read from Reus that is a stand alone – I’m used to reading either paranormal novels focused around shifters, or strictly romantic suspense.  I was quick to snatch this one up, not only because Reus is one of my favorite authors (be it writing as Katie Reus, or under her alter pen name Savannah Stuart), but because this one sortof feel in between both genres – and because I was eager to see how Reus would write it. But what can I say? As usual, Reus hit it out of the park (so to speak)!

I loved this! I have read similar titles before, but (as always) no matter how much the blurb sounds like other things you may or may not have read in the past, Reus just always manages to stick her own signature on each and every book she writes. They always stand out to me, and Reus manages to separate her works from that of anything else. She consistently plugs out outstanding books. I know that when I am picking up one of her novels, that I am in for a great read. Period.

It was nice to see something a little different from Reus though. In this case think a mash up between her normal romantic suspense with a little bit of the paranormal thrown in (in this case, a little psychic abilities and dream-walking). A little different from her standard – but excellent just the same!
