Someone wants Skye Hunter’s son, Tyler, and they’re willing to kill to get him. On the run for her life, Skye turns to the only person she believes can help her—a complete stranger with a shared past.

David Bishop thinks Skye is crazy. But when he realizes she has the same strange phenomenon inside her body that he does—the ability to move objects with her mind, David is forced to question his life, his childhood and his father’s motives. Can these two lost souls uncover the mystery of their telekinetic powers and save Tyler and themselves in the process?


    Skye's lips parted as he moved closer.  The air conditioner on his damp skin didn't cool his suddenly heated skin.

    She edged backward.

    He inched forward.

    "Okay, Bishop."  The ice cubes rattled in her glass as she set it on the counter with a snap.  "That's close enough."

    "Why?  Am I getting to you?"

    "Of course not."

    He stroked a knuckle along the tender skin below her ear.  "Then why is your pulse fluttering like a terrified mouse?"

    "That must be your imagination."  Her throat flexed as she swallowed, but she didn't step away.


    She raised her hand as if to pull his away, but he caught her wrist and brought her palm to his mouth.  He licked the fleshy part below her index finger, inhaling her distinct lavender and feminine scent.  At her indrawn breath, doubts of her lack of sexual interest in him scattered.  David smiled against her hand with satisfaction.

    Soon.  If not tonight, there'd be another time when he'd have her spilling her hidden agenda from between those delectable lips.

    His grip on her wrist tightened.  He wrapped his free arm around her waist and applied pressure to the small of her back until her body grazed his.  The cool cotton of her shirt and shorts brushed against his bare stomach and legs.

    He released her wrist and caught her chin between a finger and thumb, urging her to look up and meet the hunger he knew burned in his eyes.  "I think you like being this close."

    "Okay, okay."  She jerked her hands into the air.  Her purse, its straps sliding along her arm, swung wildly and banged against her side.  "Just don't shoot." 

    Great.  They'd fled the violence in Boston only to encounter it here in Las Vegas.

    Tension cut into every muscle and tendon across her back and shoulders.  Skye stared past both men to the front door and freedom.  Seeing no sign of Tyler through the glass panels, she inched away from the counter and register.

    Another empty aisle without Tyler.

    Where the hell was he? 

    "Are you an idiot?" the bald man asked the clerk, a boy not much older than twenty.  "Open the damn drawer."


    In horror, Skye stared at the redheaded clerk as she eased further from the trio and the front door.  The kid was crazy.  These men weren't playing around.  Agitation and fury radiated from both.  Neither of them wore masks to hide their identities, screaming their recklessness, stupidity, or savage intent.

    "The cash.  Now," the acne-faced thief growled, shoving his greasy, black hair from his face.
