Megan Alistair had two things beaten into her early—her psychic gift was valuable, and she was worth nothing. Now she hides both her gift and her heart, and plays a dangerous double game with the art underworld. Her quest? To find the painting whose whispers and shadows have haunted her since childhood.

Rumor tells multi-millionaire Dominic Stone that Megan Alistair is an immoral, money-focused schemer. So when he goes to her with a business proposition to find a missing family heirloom he expects her to bump up the price and then jump at it—and probably jump him as well. He doesn’t expect her categorical refusal. He certainly doesn’t expect to find her attractive. Or courageous. Or vulnerable. Or humorous. And he sure as hell doesn’t expect her to become as important to him as the mystery he needs her help to solve.

Suddenly, for both Megan and Dominic there is more at stake than lost heirlooms. If they don’t trust each other—and dare to love—their past could ruin them and their present could kill them.

Touching Shadows is a full length (90,000 word) Contemporary Romantic Thriller with paranormal elements.
SHADOW SEER
Undercover field intelligence operative Emma Brown is at the top of her game, using her psychic gifts to great effect in a job she loves. But it's not enough. She dreams of surrounding herself with family; lots of kids, close, supportive—the kind of family she never had growing up. When a sadistic killer’s torture ends any hope that she will bear a child, the loss shatters her. Mutates her abilities. Sends her spiraling towards psychic meltdown and vengeance.

Then her estranged sister dies and leaves behind an enigmatic message, and everything she thought she understood about herself, her family, and her background is overturned.

Now Emma must capture the man who destroyed her future, discover the truth about her past, and deal with two very present complications; Marcus, a toddler whose abilities put hers in the shade, and Brandt Alistair, the infuriating fellow-psychic whose unconventional methods push her to the edge.

and building families.

For thirteen years Ellie Holt's undercover work has given her exactly what she thought she wanted: personal autonomy and half a world’s distance from her past. But while her job has had its dangerous moments, Ellie’s real scars aren’t just from the three bullets to the chest or two blades in the back. The worst are from one devastating Jake Granville to the heart.

Now a single mom with a four-month-old daughter, Ellie returns to Dallas for her last assignment: to retrieve evidence that Jake Granville’s godfather is a traitor responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people, including members of her own family.

When multi-millionaire Jake Granville dumped Ellie Holt in the most public and devastating way possible, he thought he was protecting her. Now he discovers the sacrifices he’s made to keep her alive have been for nothing. The woman he loves—and the daughter he didn’t know he had—are still targets. And the killer’s getting closer.
