One of the best books I've read so far this year. Which is pretty cool considering it was a book I randomly bought at B&N while wondering the store one day. I thought it sounded interesting and though I hadn't read the author before (I've since read one other book by Walker), I'd heard good things of her books. And this ended up being a great buy. I was thoroughly hooked on this book from page one until the end.

Taige Branch and Cullen Morgan met when Cullen's parents started vacationing at t

Fabulous! Riveting. Grabs you by the heart and throat and won't let go. "The Missing" is Shiloh Walker's latest release and it's a hell of a book! It's a bit darker and much deeper than any other of her works I've read (and that's quite a few) and in a totally good way.

Taige has always been different. Her psychic gift manifested when she was a very young child, but understanding her 'gift' took quite a lot longer. Her current career, finding lost and taken children, came about after a heartbreak
Awilk -never sleeps-
Shiloh Walker is one of my favourite authors, and this book will keep her that way.

I liked how the book started from when the two main characters were teenagers and reading how they met and that the love between them grew over the years. The first time Cullen and Taige made love was beautiful and it made me wish that I had been that lucky in my life.

When the drama starts, I could understand why Cullen acted as he did, even though I wasn't very happy with him.

The main part of the story did let me
The Missing is a contemporary romantic suspense/thriller. I add thriller because some moments were so intense that I felt like I’d popped a bunch of caffeine pills because my hands were shaking as leafed through the pages lightning fast. Taige, the biracial beauty of a heroine, has psychic abilities and uses them to save lives in the Alabama gulf vacation community that she considers home. Her parents are deceased, so we begin the story with Taige as a teen living with her crazy preacher Uncle t ...more

Loved this story!!
Taige and Cullen's story was amazing ..(but did his name have to be Cullen..seriously?)

Look forward to reading more from this author!
This romance novel actually attempts to walk the line between romance and mystery. The plot is much more developed than any bodice ripper plot but it was still pretty far fetched, and I don't mean the psycho thing, I mean the ending.

Taige, the main character and resident psychic, had a pretty crappy upbringing after the death of her parents. She has psychic abilities that segregates her and tortures her. Basically all she had that was good in her life was a woman named Rose and her son who was

Wow. I read this book without stopping, straight through the night. I loved everything about it. The book was haunting. The paranormal elements were a bonus but the real draw was the love story. I'm not into sappy reads either. I like action, danger and a bit of horror. I like the relationships to be physical and hot. This book had all of this but toned down and beautifully woven together. This is a keeper book for me.
Okay. I picked this up at a bargain book store during the Hay-on-Wye festival last year. It was 2 so I figured, “Why not?” Oh, and it was shelved under the YA banner.

It was miss shelved!

I had barely bent the spine of this one before the narrative took a turn for the hot 'n' steamy! This is definitely for more mature readers. It's not filth or anything, just an enjoyably risqué crime/romance/paranormal read.

The relationship between Taige and Cullen is touching. And I don't mean that in a dodgy
3.5 Stars~~~Well done, well written romantic suspense with a psychic twist. This had all of the elements that should rock me. I just didn't 'like' the characters as much as I could have. I think I never forgave Cullen for the events of the past. Nevertheless, it is an exciting read with a twisted serial killer. I really, really dislike Taige's boss and am interested to see where the series goes after this.

So I started this a long time ago and could not get through the prologue I was like ok ok get to the point can we move on please. So I set it aside. I finally picked it up again yesterday and basically started it completely over even though I vaguely remembered a few things. The length of the prologue is long because it helps us understand Taige and Cullen and how their relationship developed. I did like the book, but I felt like the circumstances of his child being kidnapped and the end result ...more
This one was humid sexy. Like I'm on the gulf shore of Alabama and I'm a broken, sad girl falling in love with a rich boy whose gonna save my life and touch my skin and its gonna be electric and heartbreaking before its over. This was my first book by Shiloh Walker and I'm ridiculously impressed, and shocked I haven't read anything by her yet.

It's no surprise that I've got a thing for the south. It's what makes me fangirl over a lot of Sandra Brown's books. I love the heat. The sticky seduction
Sometimes the mood strikes me for an intense contemporary romance, nail biting suspense and leap-of-the-pages characters, which is all poured in to my mind with imaginative storytelling. On such an occasion The Missing popped in to my view from my shelves. I cracked the spine, started reading the first chapter and from there, Shiloh Walker delivered all I wanted from a PNR suspense.

The story begins in the summer of 1992 with a blossoming vacation romance between young adults Cullen Morgan and Ta

This is my first book by Shiloh Walker that I've read and I have to say this it definitely won't be my last one. I've heard many good things about Walker and I decided to give her novels a try which is how I found out about her contest that would give me a try to sample her work. I won this ARC of her upcoming release The Missing , which comes out in two days on Tuesday November 4th. I loved it so much that I finished it in 8 hours max after I started reading it and I'm sure that is one of the ...more
This is my third book by Shiloh Walker, and once again, she does not disappoint.

We first meet Taige Branch and Cullen Morgen as teenagers, when Cullen and his parents holiday at the beach side town where Taige lives. Taige, as with many of Walker's characters, has had a tough life. Her parents died when she was young and she was sent to live with her uncle, who mistreated her. To complicate things, Taige lives with the burden of a psychic gift.

Cullen is instantly attracted to Taige's exotic beau

Ironically I have TWO books on my bookshelf from Shiloh Walker that I have yet to read, but I checked out The Missing and The Departed from the library a while ago, so I have to get them read....and I think I am really going to enjoy reading ALL of Shiloh Walker's books!

This was a great read. Full of suspense and romance and sex and two characters that I just adored, even though I wanted to KICK CULLEN'S ASS at one point! I actually shed some tears while reading this one....mostly because of al

Taige was born with a gift that allows her to help children that are going to be, or have been kidnapped. She lives with her uncle, Leon who hates the ground she walks on and thinks she’s a demon spawn. But sadly Taige is no stranger to feeling out of place being biracial and living in Alabama (Or was it Florida?), or at least this was true until she meets Cullen. Cullen saves Taige from getting raped one night and from that day on they’re together...until Cullen’s mother gets brutally murdered
Erotic Horizon
As a child nothing was right in Taige Branch world – from how she lived to who she lived with, It all boiled to a nightmare with only brief patches of colour in her world. That is until she met Cullen Morgan and his family one summer and then she lived only for the summers.

Taige had a gift, but as a teenager it felt more like a curse and she was not equipped to handle it. Cullen accepted her – HER – gift and all and he made life bearable – that is, until she was not able to save someone importan
Jane Stewart
Well done romantic suspense. Heroine uses psychic abilities to save lives and catch bad guys.

Per Publishers Weekly “A sweet love story alternates with an exciting manhunt. Romantic suspense fans will find much to like in Taige, a fearless beauty, half-white, half-black, who's not just another medium clone.” I agree. There are other characters with psychic abilities as well. This was a nicely done story with some interesting plot twists and events.

The Missing is only my second Shiloh Walker read and it served as a good reminder that I really need to pick up more of her books. In spite of my “paranormal/romance burnout” I flew through this book yesterday and could not put it down. I was cursing Shiloh Walker and updating my goodreads status at 4 am, wondering where the night had gone.

Taige, pronounced like Paige with a t (I asked!), has a unique gift. Ever since she was a little girl Taige has had visions or dreams that help her find missi
It actually gets a 3.5. For some reason, I didn't like it as much as The Departed. Maybe had I read this one first, I would have liked it more? Hm. Either way, it was good, but I think I didn't connect with these characters as much as I did with Dez and Taylor in The Departed. Still, this book was good. More sex, haha, but still, pretty good. But like I said, I think I like The Departed better. I love those crusty, seemingly-cold guys like Taylor Jones who have a back story, who have a woman tha ...more
One thing I learned for sure: Shiloh Walker knows how to throw an emotional punch right into your heart. The Missing will grab your heart from the start and not let go until you read the last page. I think it is an unique talent Mrs. Walker has there. Her books are always full of heartbreak, thrill and they have their share of sexy times, too.

In The Missing we meet Taige in her teenage years. She already suffered a lot and still does most of the time. Not only does she hear and see monstrous thi
I don't normally read books where the plot is about missing, abducted, abused or molested children. It is my personal Kryptonite. I relaxed that stricture for this book because a) it was made clear that that plot is off screen for most of the book, not front and center and b) when it does happen as part of the plot the child in question is found pretty quickly and finally, c)I like to support authors who write IR or multicultural romances whenever possible.

This book had some really good element

Taige Branch is a psychic who freelances for the FBI, her specialty is finding lost or kidnapped children. When Taige was young she lost her parents and was sent to live with an Uncle who hated her and called her a demon every day she was in his presence. The summer she was 16 she finally met someone who she could connect with, Cullen Morgan, a rich boy who came for a vacation. They were inseparable that summer and every summer for the next 4 years, then Cullen experienced a tragedy that he blam ...more
The Missing was release in mass market paperback in July, and let me tell you, if you have not picked up this book, you need to. The book is essentially divided into two part, the first being when Taige and Cullen first meet as kids. Taige is a local girl, living in the small town with her psycho uncle where Cullen’s parents have a summer home. The two meet on the beach, fall in love, and spend their summers together.

During that time, Taige confides in Cullen about her psychic gift, which allows

This is the very first interracial novel i have read and honestly i enjoyed it a lot. I mean i didn't know about it well till 1/2 the book was finished but even then i was not tempted to stop reading.
The story is about a psychic girl who falls in love with the 'rich white boy'. This only leads to her falling to fast and too hard and then being left with a broken heart. Basically not to give away the whole gist of the story but they meet again after 12 years because he needs her help with a famil
Shelleyrae at Book'd Out
A lot better than I was expecting, the romance is hardly as syrupy as the description seems - and the story itself is a lot darker, with child abduction and abuse and attempted rape, though the HEA is there . There were a couple of plot points that didn't quite work for me - most notably when Cullen cuts Taige from his life - it didnt fit his established character which overall was a little flat anyway (and I am afraid that the name Cullen is now irrevocably asociated with Twilight for me LOL). ...more
