Arianna Hart is going on my 'authors to watch' list. She tells very good, very sexy stories without sacrificing emotional growth and relationship building.

Talia is an empath who must shield herself from others emotions. Most of the time it works, with two exceptions. She can't block especially strong senders, and she can't block the strong emotions of those she cares about. So when her good friend and co-worker is kidnapped by a man who exudes evil, Talia is determined to do everything she can t
Police Officer Finn O'Brien is searching for a missing woman when he enters Strange Days, an occult bookstore. There he meets their bookkeeper, Talia Dane. About a month later Talia's friend goes missing and the two meet again. Talia is an empath and feels her friend's fear and anger. She is determined to rescue her friend.

I have decided I like this author. She blends the romance and suspense in a way that I enjoy. This book has a small element of the paranormal in that the heroine is an empath.
Nicely done for a suspense novel in less than 300 pages. The story revolves around Talia, a bookkeeper in an occult bookstore, and Finn, a NYC police detective investigating the disappearance of Talia's girlfriend. The story line was interesting and the characters well enough developed that you couldn't help rooting for them. I never could figure out how the title of the novel related to the contents, though.
Yeah, I'm not impressed at all. The story line was a bit far fetched. Talia the empath and the Detective Finn O'Brien try to crack a kidnapping case, oh and they fall in love. (view spoiler) BLAH
One of the good ones, another quick read!
