"She must decide ... the cold life she knew or his love"

In DREAM SHADOW Grace has lived the life of a military
operative since she was in her teens. She knows no other
life. She's a psychic tracker with a flawless record but
she knows little about anything else.
Sheriff Brice Campbell wasn't optimistic about psychics but
he had heard of her success and he needed help. The former
ranger pulled strings to get her to his county to search
for a little girl who was kidnapped. It doesn't take long
for Brice to be very intrigued by the prickly hands off
woman who for some reason turns him on like no one else.
Major Jason Jacobs has been with Grace forever and even he
didn't like the way she was treated but until she fought
back there was nothing he could do. He was military to the
bone. But this military man was about to meet his match in
Beth, a retired general's daughter who discovers she has
seen something that could get her killed.
The child is found rather easily but something is wrong. A
blanket is found in the cabin and it doesn't belong to that
little girl, nor is any other child missing. And what about
the hatred that she felt emanating from the area? That was
the least of the emotions she felt now that she had met the
sheriff. Should she give into those feelings, but what
could come of that? She's be dragged to the next job
without as much as a thought to what she wanted from her
life. They had taken away her name and given her nothing
but protection from outside sources that would use her
abilities... but were they much better?
DREAM SHADOW is fantastic! There are a number of reasons to
read this book and anyone of any genre would be intrigued.
You have the military men, a hot sheriff, the growth of a
woman who hadn't really been allowed to live, the evil of
greed and an explosive ending. There is also the very
interesting added bonus of a second romance between the
Major and Beth. Author Mary Wine has been put on my must
read list and I'm sure others will find her stories just as
intriguing as I did.
Sheriff Brice Campbell never met a psychic worth a dime.
Until Grace. She’s the real deal, an Army psychic tracker
with a flawless record for finding her target. And
somewhere behind her bristling defenses is a woman he’s
determined to coax out into the light of day.
Grace’s legendary ability to keep her emotions walled off
from her gift is the key to her success. Unfocused equals
unproductive. Only this time, her target is a child that’s
gone missing. Worse, an unexpected attraction to Brice is
messing with her concentration, big time.
Desire sends them both up in a firestorm of passion, which
only makes it painfully clear that the Army’s secret weapon
has one embarrassing flaw. In matters of the heart, she’s a
Brice is more than willing to help her navigate these
unfamiliar waters, but bringing her heart out of the
shadows exposes her to danger neither saw coming. And from
which no army can save her.
Warning: Contains a small-town sheriff who isn’t going to
let a few emotional walls get in his way, and a woman who
can’t help but let him take hers down, brick by brick.
