Elaine Llewellyn has forced herself into
becoming a workaholic so that she is just too tired to have
the visions that come to her. A great solution until her boss
takes the matter out of her hands and forces her into an
extended vacation. Elaine is worried that with nothing to do,
the visions will come back to haunt her. Faced with either
just waiting for the visions to hit, or find something to do,
Elaine decides to travel to an out of the way B&B during the
winter. However, Elaine was not planning on the vicious
winter storm that forces her to abandon her car.
Damon Thorne is known as a very private
artist who paints from his physic visions. Damon has seen a
woman who will come to him and will change his life forever.
What he doesn’t know is when she will appear or what the
circumstances will be. Damon is not at all surprised when,
during the middle of a winter storm, out of the darkness comes
his mystery woman.
Elaine and Damon meet when the lights go
out. Elaine believes that she might have lucked out and found
her B&B, Damon senses just how close to the edge Elaine is and
does not explain the entire truth to her. Over a simple
dinner, the sparks fly until Elaine escapes to her room, only
to discover that she doesn’t want to escape from Damon. Damon
accepts Elaine’s invitation, believing that this night will
only be the first of many, but first he will have to tell her
the truth. One long, dark and stormy night can make a
difference in how Elaine sees not only her gift, but her
entire life if Damon can only help her see.
Only Human is a darkly
delicious story that centers around a really stormy winter’s
night. Elaine only wants to escape the “gift” she has hated
most of her life, and has gone to health threatening lengths
to do so. Damon embraces his gift and uses it to his
advantage in his work. One long night of sex, explanations
and understanding leads Elaine and Damon to a love that many
do not find. Elaine was so emotionally fragile when she met
Damon and he was so loving and gentle with her until she
understood that gifts are not good or bad – they just are.
Damon captured my heart with his understanding of Elaine and
her concerns. Elaine showed me that love could truly heal all
wounds. I couldn’t read fast enough and closed the book with
a sigh. If you have been following the Torrid Tarot series,
than Only Human is a must read and if you
haven’t been, then I would suggest that you begin the series
with Ms. Teglia’s story of The Star card.
