Faith Nightstar is a cardinal telepath,
an F-Psy whose ability to foretell the future with great
accuracy has made her a protected and isolated asset to her
clan since childhood. Now, instead of visions of business
decisions and commercial ventures, she is constantly bombarded
by those of murder and death. More dangerous to her though,
are the accompanying feelings of need and pleasure. Can she
withstand not only the breaking of Silence but the emotions
she desperately wants to experience?
Vaughn D’Angelo is a jaguar changeling
who lives among the leopards. His strong animal side becomes
fascinated by the solitary Psy he discovers living in a
guarded compound in the forest. The more he thinks of her,
the more he’s drawn to her until the attraction is
overwhelming. His jaguar self demands this woman, but while
he dreams of ways to touch and pleasure her, others are
determined to retain her abilities for their own purposes.
Will his desire for her cost Faith her sanity or will the
actions of others mean her death?

The world of the Psy has been more
revealed in Visions of Heat and the intricate
world building only serves to suck me further into this
series. Faith’s desire for the emotions and physical touch
that might totally destroy her is fascinating and I especially
love her interactions with Vaughn when he gets especially
I recommend Visions of Heat
to anyone who wants to read a compelling story set in a world
of extremes where people can still find love in a middle
ground that may or may not be anything society would approve
of. The hot sex and character relationships sucked me in
immediately and I could not put the book down until I had
finished it – then I immediately started reading it again!
