Ally Moran has always just known about things—things she shouldn’t really be able to know…
Suddenly when she starts having vivid visions about a former friend who is in desperate trouble, the adults in her life think she might hold the key to an ancient mystery.
Jack Ruiz has a troubled past, but is trying to make a fresh start at a new high school…
He just wants to keep his head down and graduate, hopefully before he turns 20. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a feisty redhead and her psychic visions.
While Jack valiantly attempts to keep Ally at arm’s length, she is equally determined to be a part of his life. Who will win this battle of wills?
Can this unlikely couple work together to find answers to Ally’s visions before someone gets killed?

DREAMER, The Seeker Series #2
- SYNOPSIS -
Meet Ally Moran, a 17 year-old who also happens to be psychic. Oh, and she’s getting more psychic with every passing day, so much so that she’s been sent to Ireland to check in with the Seer Council to see what’s up with her freaky new powers.
Jack Ruiz is her 19 year-old boyfriend, a former troublemaker who’s back on track and trying desperately to graduate. His plans did not include falling in love with a psychic trouble-magnet.
Last month they worked together to save a friend in deep trouble and ended up solving a school-wide mystery. But now there’s a new guy at school, Remy Giles, and he seems just a little bit too interested in Ally for Jack’s liking. And why does Ally keep dreaming about a kidnapping? Last month seems like a cakewalk compared to this semester…
Ally's trying to solve a mystery, but Jack is just trying to keep her alive.

SEER, The Seeker Series #3
- SYNOPSIS -
Ally Moran and Jack Ruiz are starting their first year in college and are looking for peace and quiet for the first time in their relationship…
However, it may be too much to hope for.
First, Ally’s long-lost father shows up, making her question everything she thought she knew about her past.
Meanwhile, Rémy Giles and the mysterious Mina have accompanied Ally home from France so they can try to figure out what the newest prophecy could possibly mean.
Is Ally the next Oracle?
And if all this weren’t enough, Ally fears she is being stalked, and she appears to have a secret admirer who is sending her creepy personal messages in the college newspaper. However, no one else has seen this “supposed” stalker, so she fears she may be going crazy.
As Jack and Remy fight to keep Ally safe against the looming danger,
Ally begins to fear for the one thing she can’t bear to lose…her sanity.

- EXCERPT from SEER -"Ally was just telling me that her young man has joined the military. I think that is very noble." Kate put her arm through Rémy's and pulled him along with us deeper into the garden.
"Oh, yes. Jack is all that is noble and good," Rémy said, dripping sarcasm. "He is so good that we mere mortals must bask in his virtuosity. Oww". He rubbed the arm I punched.
"Now, children. You mustn't fight. Don't make me send you to your rooms," Kate teased. "We must make good use of Ally's limited time here to try and figure out what you two have to do with the prophecy. It would be so much easier and make more sense if you were destined to fall in love with each other," she sighed.
I swallowed another bite of sandwich. "I really don't think prophecies should go around telling people who to fall in love with. That's not right. I didn't choose to fall in love with Jack; my heart chose him and I had to go along with it." They both stopped in the path and stared at me. "What?" I asked.
"That was very beautiful, Ally. And very profound. I can see I would be wise not to underestimate you, my dear. Now," she said as she led us briskly down the path, "why have you two been brought together, if not to unite the clans through a marriage alliance?"
The mere thought of marriage to Rémy made me cringe. I mean, he was gorgeous, but we would kill each other in about an hour. "You don't think we can bring the clans together any other way than marriage? That's really limiting, you know? Not to mention medieval."
Rémy snickered and Kate gave him a dirty look. "Ally is correct. And far, far in the future, when I begin to look for a wife, I will require someone a good bit more biddable than Ally," he said.
"Yes," I sneered. "You'll need someone who adores you nearly as much as you adore yourself."
"Remind me why I went to the trouble of bringing you a sandwich?"
"Children," Kate warned.
"Sorry," we both murmured.
"Now, we must use what little time we have for Ally's visit to try and figure out what in the world is going on with you two. We will have to run various tests..."

ORACLE, The Seeker Series #4

Spending her junior year in college in France should be the adventure of a lifetime…
Too bad Ally Morans’s only doing it to keep her family and friends safe from a killer. When Mina goes missing, the illusion of safety disappears and Rémy must finally confront his feelings for her.

Love may conquer all, but the identity of the true Oracle is still up in the air.
Until that’s settled,
no one can have a happily-ever-after…

- EXCERPT from ORACLE -I tried to relax as I watched people hurry by on the busy street. A young mother pushing a stroller stopped and sat at the table next to me, motioning to the waiter for a coffee. She wilted in her chair only to sit up again and fuss with the sleeping baby’s blanket. She noticed me watching and we exchanged smiles in that universal way of women admiring a beautiful baby. I looked away and sighed. Would that ever be me? I was twenty years old, living in a foreign country, and I was lonely. Jack and I communicated every day—text, FaceTime, email, etcetera—but it wasn’t enough any more. I needed to be with him: to hold him, kiss him, live with him, and yes, sleep with him. I was ready to move on with my life, but this unresolved situation with Luc was holding me back. As if I had conjured a response with my thoughts, my phone dinged a text notification. It was from Jack and consisted of a two word response to my email:
I smiled and reached to wipe away a tear as I prepared to text him back.
“Cherié! I thought I might find you here!”
“Rémy! You’re back early!” He kissed both my cheeks before taking the chair opposite me. I noticed he and the young woman at the next table giving each other a once-over and rolled my eyes at him.
“What?” He shrugged.
“You just can’t help it, can you?” I laughed. “Flirting is like breathing with you, isn’t it?”
He shrugged again and caught Marc’s attention to order a beer. “Where’s Mina? I tried to get her on her mobile, but it went straight to voice mail.”
I cocked an eyebrow at him and smirked. “She turns it off when she needs to concentrate. I’m sure she’s at home working. Drink your beer and then we can go see her.” Although we had all improved our mental communication abilities over the past year, we had all also agreed to respect each other’s privacy to a much greater degree, only invading each other’s thoughts in the case of a true emergency, which had not happened so far this year. In fact, this year had been mostly an exercise in boredom, filled with school, training, and waiting.

So first thing I wanna say is that while this is a YA book there were a few intense themes mentioned throughout the book.
Ally is different she know it and accepts it and has always tried to stay under the radar at school and not get noticed, until her gifts magnify and she starts having visions, right in the middle of class. The plus side is almost no one noticed and the only person that did is the swoon worthy new guy who sits right behind her.
Jack hadn't said much of anything to her until then, but once he comes to her rescue the two can't seem to stay away from each other. As they become friends they work to understand her visions and how she can help the person in them all while trying not to drool while thinking about kissing Jack.
Ally is a high school girl with normal boy problems, but is also trying to understand her new found gifts and it's made her quite mature in some ways while you can still see her a a kid learning about growing up.
Jack is a total sweetie who is easy to fall in love with.
The two have both normal and not so normal problems and I loved seeing the balance between them. I also enjoyed all the supporting characters and how there was great depth to them as well so you really feel like you're right there in the story being a part of it.
The paranormal aspect is interesting and was explained perfectly so you never had any moments where you were scratching your head wondering what the heck was going on. Everything was well rounded and this was one I thoroughly enjoyed and am excited to continue reading more of.
Review contains spoilers if you haven't read book 1
Ally has only just scratched the surface of her gifts and is now on her way to learning even more. She managed to deal with the craziness of her visions of Veronica, but is still recuperating from the after affects of everything that happened. And now more gets thrown at her in Ireland, while she is also sucked into another mystery.
The good thing is her relationship with Jack has been figured out, and he's right there to help her as things in her life get ramped up even more.
More mystery and more powers this poor girl has allot to deal with, but she handles it so well and I admire her for it even though she is young. She does still have her teenager moments which make her seem more real, but overall is more mature than ever. Don't worry though she still manages a fair amount of trouble.
Great addition to the series growing from book 1 to show even more of the paranormal aspect and the characters making you fall in love with them even more and making me more excited than ever to read more!
Seer book 3
Ally has gone to France with Rèmy instead of going to Ireland like she was supposed to, but with everything she still has to learn it seamed like the best idea especially since Rèmy grandmother is the current oracle.
Time spent there makes them both realize just how much they still don't know and makes their next steps a bit uncertain. Coming home to New Mexico life is a normal yet still crazy with college and unknown family making an appearance in Ally's life.
Times goes on and you see Ally growing up and her love for Jack grow more and more even when there are things in their lives that are uncertain.
I enjoyed seeing Ally going from young woman to adult and watching as she becomes more of who she is meant to be.
There are still mystery's to solve and once again you will never see everything coming until it is right there in front of you.
I loved seeing old characters and new and seeing more of this amazing world.
Oracle Book 4
It's time to come home, but in doing so everything changes for Ally starting with her relationship with Jack. She finally figured out what was important and is making those things a priority.
Remy and Mina finally figure themselves out as well and for a time everything is good.
But the bad guy is still out there and hes just been waiting in the wings while the final pieces come together and he is ready to attack.
Everyone has grown so much and I loved that there were still twists that kept me surprised. I loved the world that was created and the characters in it!
