When Caitlyn Deveraux's brother Gage is killed in Iraq, she receives a necklace as part of his personal effects that she thinks is a trinket he'd purchased for her. When she scatters his ashes according his exact instructions and repeats the words he'd written, she accidentally inhales some of the ashes. From that moment on, her life as a quiet librarian is turned upside down.
Jacob Littlejohn was not only Gage Deveraux's best friend, he was his team mate at Team Indigo. He should have been there to protect Gage, but he wasn't. Now he's determined to protect Caitlyn from the men who are after the necklace. It's no trinket, but rather a powerful amulet that could have devastating consequences if it fell into the wrong hands.
Caitlyn doesn't know how to handle the new powers she's received, so she heads back to her village, to her grandmother, to try to understand what's happening to her. In doing so, she brings danger to her people and gets involved in Team Indigo's current mission--the same mission that got her brother killed. She enlists the aid of her people and her three best friends, and together with Jacob and Team Indigo, they set out to stop a power-hungry General.

5 Stars by P. A. Lane
Tori has an undescribable way of creating and developing characters and story lines that grab my attention and hold it until I finish the book. I care for the characters like people I know and feel their feelings. Steamy, but not sexed to death. I got it one day and finished the next after work and had thought of the book during the day. I have read three of Tori's books and can recommend anything she writes. Great job, Ms. Scott!!!

Jolie gave it 5 stars!
This is a story that will knock your socks off. The pages practically sizzled and I couldn't read them fast enough. I'm always a sucker for the old flame story, and this one doesn't disappoint. Highly recommended.
J gave it 5 stars!
I don't normally leave reviews, but I read this story last night and fell in love with the characters. The emotions were well done and authentic. I just bought the sequel because I must know what happens to Reggie and Sam.

Dr. Debra gave it 5 stars!
Absolutely Loved It!
I absolutely loved this book. Tori Scott roped me in with the first paragraph, and I read it through without stopping. I'd never read a Western where the hero didn't love his ranch. Well this hero hates his family ranch. What a unique beginning. The story was beautifully written and heartfelt. I loved all the characters. I loved the small town. I can't wait to read more stories set in this town. Bring on Carol and Jake's story, Tori Scott!

4 Stars By Romance Novel Junkies "Lady Raven Rave"
Logan has left home since he was eighteen and hasn't return since. Now that his father has suffered a stroke, he has returned home to help care for him. While back home, he is worried about his daughter Katie. Megan stumbles upon Katie, who has run away from home. When she returns Katie to her father, she falls in love with Logan and his family.
This was a mellow and sad at times story. I think the author did a great job building a story around this Texas family. Though the story is about Megan and Logan's growing relationship throughout the story, it is also about Katie and the family. Katie is the daughter of Logan. Katie definitely was a child that was very determined, and had her issues dealing with her parents. Logan has issues, but I think everything for him came full circle towards the end, which includes Megan.
Though I mentioned sad moments, this shouldn't be discouraging, as everything brought the story together that gave me different stages of emotions that I went through.
This is my contribution to the Book & Cook Holiday Blog Festival.
This recipe is easy to make and serves 12 if you can keep people from grabbing seconds before everyone is served (not easy). The combinations of crunchy crust and smooth toppings and sweet fillings with the tart cream cheese makes it taste as heavenly as it looks. My picture here does not do it justice. If you want to make it look really special, you can add curled chocolate shavings on top.
