A woman shrouded in mystery.
One of the prophesized Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, her touch could heal or kill, but once touched, a man was forever obsessed. Talia Martin had lived a life of isolated loneliness by necessity. She was the government’s secret weapon, brought out, dusted off and, once again, put into service to save captured Navy Seals.
A man betrayed by love
Secret Service Special Agent Nickolas Pane didn’t know when he had been more devastated. Even the infidelity of his ex hadn’t shaken him like discovering his kid brother was MIA, captured by the Taliban in Iraq. Then – a mysterious proposal – an opportunity to rescue his brother and the other Seals on the special ops team. He would die to have her and kill to keep her.
She could find his brother, but had to touch Nickolas to do so. Undercover as man and wife, they traveled across the world, insatiable passion flaring between them. While Talia knew this was a mission from which she would not return, her death would free the man she had come to love. Nickolas, determined to bring her back or die trying, desired her more than life itself. He would never release her, or live without her.

Talia has only ever wanted to live her life in peace, but with the gifts she is so special a treasure the government won't just let her live a quite life when she can be used to help with special missions. Now with the capture of a group of navy seals she is once again called into service in order to help save their lives.
Nickolas will do whatever it takes to save the life of his brother, including something he wouldn't believe possible if he didn't see it, or rather her, with his own eyes. There's a fine line between lust and .... love? Could it be that he has found the woman he wants to spend his life with? Or is it just the obsession brought from her touch?
Talia is strong in many ways having survived a horrible childhood and being able to go toe to toe with the biggest baddest toughest men in the military. But when it comes to her personal life she has the naivety of a child even though she is a grown woman. While I liked her character overall and her sass gave more than a few laughs the level of naive she has in certain areas was just a bit overdone and at times drove me nuts.
Nickolas is tough and sure of himself, and a large and in charge alpha male. When is comes to those he cares about he will do anything to protect them. He also has a sweet and caring side and I just loved seeing all the different sides of him.
This story brings you into a new and interesting world where one woman has powers beyond anything anyone has ever seen and it's quite extraordinary. We go along with the characters as they learn about each other as well as themselves and discover just who and what they really are. This was a great start to a series and I'm excited to see where it goes.
