Sizzle and Burn (The Arcane Society, Book 3)Sizzle and Burn by Jayne Ann Krentz
When Raine Tallentyre made the mistake of revealing her paranormal abilities, her most recent romantic relationship came to a hasty end. Her Aunt Vella, a gifted but troubled soul, had told her years ago to keep her talents a secret. And now that poor Aunt Vella-her last blood relative-has died, Raine has resigned herself to a lonely life. But when she journeys to Shelbyville, Washington, to clear out Aunt Vella's house, Raine's highly developed sensitivity leads her to a horrifying discovery: a young woman bound and terrified in a basement storage locker. The victim has survived, but the culprit is still on the loose. Without warning, a new man enters Raine's life-investigator Zack Jones. Surprisingly, Zack isn't repelled by her powers: in fact, he has them himself. While Raine hears voices, Zack sees visions and within hours of their meeting, Raine experiences an intense, thrilling intimacy-mental, emotional, and physical-she never dared to expect. There's one complication, however: Zack Jones is working for the Arcane Society. This secret organization, dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena, shattered Raine's family with an act of betrayal long ago, and she's not about to trust them now. But as a killer makes her his target, and a cabal of psychic criminals known as Nightshade operates in the shadows surrounding them, Raine and Zack must rely not only on their powerful abilities but on each other . . .

I liked this book.

Predatory Game (GhostWalkers, Book 6)Predatory Game (Ghostwalkers Book 6) by Christine Feehan
Saber Wynter is running from her past when she meets Jess Calhoun, an ex-Navy SEAL who is physically and emotionally compromised by his own mysterious and violent history as a GhostWalker. What Jess senses in Saber is a kindred spirit, a lost soul desperate for sanctuary. He offers her a home, job, and a haven where she can safely reveal the secrets that shadow her. But danger follows her, too. Now, the riddles of both their pasts are about to collide, shattering the promise of their future with the ultimate betrayal.

Great book. A lot of time this series is hit or miss with me (I love the Norton twins books) and this was one that I really enjoyed. I think one of the main reasons I liked it was that the hero was in a wheelchair. I find very few books where that is the case, so it always intrigues me.

I like Feehan's Ghostwalker series, it's not even my usual cup o'tea (I liked the twin's stories too). But I've decided to wait for the audio book of Predatory Game to show up on Audible. The previous one is there now (which I already read) so I'm hoping it won't be long before this one shows up.

I think this series would be perfect for a comic book adaptation.

I have not tried audio books. I am too visual, I have to see the words.
I think that you are right, they would make a great comic book. Very X-Men

I have her Dark series to get into at some point this year. If I like it I will give this series a go as well as it sounds interesting. I love your Last Unicorn avatar by the way, it was (and still is) my favourite film as a child.
