About the Book:
“I had my first psychic dream when I was nine. Psychic implied power, and powerful wasn’t a word I’d use to describe myself. I couldn’t foretell the future or conjure visions at will, but I couldn’t think of a more fitting word to describe what I sometimes saw in my dreams.”

For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher’s Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn’t prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she’s been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They’ve turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media’s headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.

“I’m over there,” I said, indicating my beat up Honda Civic. I slid behind the wheel as he sank into the passenger seat.

“Thanks for the ride.”

“No problem.” The air crackled with awkward silence. I started the car and backed out, trying to come up with something to say to break the ice. Aidan's words went a long way toward the opposite.

“Why’d you freak out over a lighter?”

My hands tightened around the steering wheel. “What lighter?”

“And I’m the one with the concussion? You know what I’m talking about. That guy lit up and you lost it. You bolted the second you realized what you’d said.”

“Where am I taking you?” I asked, easing up on the accelerator once we approached the first turn-off into town. “I don’t know where you live.”

“Keep going south. I’m on the outskirts.”

I pressed down on the gas pedal and pushed the speed limit. The car hummed over the wet pavement. Neither of us said anything for a while, and just when I thought he’d let the subject drop, he spoke again.

“You know something, though I have no clue how or why.” His arm brushed mine, causing my stomach to roll. He was too close. The awareness was exhilarating and terrifying all at once.

“You’ve lost me, Aidan. What am I supposed to know?”

“Did McFayden tell you?”

McFayden? He was speaking in riddles. “Who?”

“The sheriff’s son.”

“Judd?” I asked in disbelief. Was he serious?

“The sheriff isn’t stupid enough to let something like that slip. It had to be his son.”

I burst out laughing—the kind of laughter one faked in order to hide something. Like the truth. “You think Judd and I talk? I don’t even know him.”

“He knows you.” The weight of his stare heated my face. “I’ve seen him watch you. Makes his girlfriend bat-shit crazy.”

“You’re the one sounding crazy right now.” I sneaked a peek at him. “What happened tonight?”

His sigh filtered through the car. I heard his clothes rustle as he settled into the seat. “I don’t remember.”

“Are you sure you’re okay?” I asked, noticing how he’d closed his eyes and taken to massaging his temples.

He didn’t answer right away. “Yeah.” Another sigh. “Take a right at the next street.” I followed his instructions. “I’m all the way at the end.”

The pavement turned to gravel. His street was deserted, save for a few trees on either side. As we bumped over a pothole, I realized that if Aidan suspected me of knowing something, then there was something to know. And how did he know whatever that something was?

About the Author: Christina Jean Michaels was born in Paradise, California, but she has found the true home of her heart in Eugene, Oregon where she finds plenty of inspiration for storytelling.

When she was young, her mother said she hated words. Now she can't imagine not writing. She became an avid reader when she was thirteen and discovered the world of Sweet Valley High. About a year later she realized she could play God and write about her own characters. She has been writing in some form ever since.

 She lives with her husband and their four children—three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
