Common School Literature English and American:With Several Hundred Extracts to Be Memorized (Classic Reprint) James Willis Westlake
The second in a sexy, dangerous, psychic romantic suspense series from NYTimes bestseller Marie Harte. She´d give anything to lose control… Storm Buchanan´s talent for mind control comes in handy as an investigator for a private agency, but it´s hell on her love life. Maybe that´s why she can´t trust herself around Rafe Savage. The smug, sexy, annoying investigator for a rival firm is the one man who seems impervious to her power. Worse, when he kisses her, she all-too-willingly slips under his control. Rafe´s gift for seeing the future doesn´t usually blindside him…until it comes to Storm. The beautiful seductress assaults his control on all fronts, and the spontaneous flashes of her life in danger have his every instinct on alert. When attempts on both their lives escalate, Storm and Rafe must stick together to find a madman bent on vengeance. While it´s no surprise that their enforced proximity has their bodies going up in flames, neither expects lust to melt into love. Or that they´ll need every ounce of their combined skills to fight for a future that could die before it´s born. Warning: Beware a heroine with mind control, a sexy hero with attitude, annoying siblings, smug psychics, danger, and a psychotic villain who can´t be caught.
All superheroes get their powers from somewhere. A radioactive spider bite. A science experiment gone awry. I got mine from a surfing accident in Tofino. The ultimate wipeout. I woke up with the most powerful mind on the planet, but a body like a wet paper bag.... Meet Westlake Soul, a 23-year-old former surfing champion. A loving son and brother. But if you think he’s just a regular dude, think again; Westlake is in a permanent vegetative state. He can’t move, has no response to stimuli, and can only communicate with Hub, the faithful family dog. And like all superheroes, Westlake has an archenemy: Dr. Quietusa, nightmarish embodiment of Death itself. Westlake dreams of a normal life of surfing and loving again. But time is running out; Dr. Quietus is getting closer, and stronger. Can Westlake use his superbrain to recover - to slip his enemy’s cold embrace before it’s too late? 1. Language: English.
