This one is a clear winner. I freaking LOVED it! It had ALL my favourite elements in ONE book. Normally i'd read different books to quench my thirst for different things. How awesome is it that i found not just this one book, but an entire series. This must be my book payday after searching weeks and weeks for just one gut twisting read. This book has:
Second chance love.
Sweet, amazing hero.
Sassy, kick-ass heroine.
Great writing.

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

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 meet as teens and form an intense connection. For Taige, Cullen is the only boy who accepts her strange and wonderful abilities while for Cullen she is the most exotic and enchanting girl he has ever encountered. But when Taige's gift fails to protect Cullen's mother, he finds it impossible to forgive and the two go their separate ways. Now Cullen is a widowed father desperate to find his kidnapped daughter and Taige is the only one he can turn to

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
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

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

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

What an intense read! Romantic Suspense, Paranormal (Psychic), 2nd Chance Romance and Great Writing are BOOK HEAVEN for me!!

The first half had a bit too much angst for me. I flooded our bedroom reading it. Had to move to the Den for the second half while my room dried. Angst & me just don't get along well at all!

The second half got much better though as the couple began speaking after their lengthy 12 year separation. Their break up was brutal and scarred them both for many ye

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 dodg

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.

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 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
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

The Missing is the second book by Shiloh Walker that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed Broken so when Ms. Walker asked if I would put together a book tour for the re-release of The Missing, I couldn’t say no.

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive at first with the psychic element of the book but I was okay with the way things panned out. I wasn’t turned away by it; instead it drew me in.

I felt for Taige, really felt for her for all the trials and tribulati

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.

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

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

THE MISSING is the story of Taige Branch and Cullen Morgan. It's told in 2 parts and spans a time-period of 16 years. Part 1 shows us how Taige and Cullen meet and a lovely young love sparkles between the girl of mixed heritage with an extraordinary psychic gift she doesn't want and the handsome all-American boy who comes to her town every summer on vacation. Teenage Paige is very mature for her age, probably because she's always had only herself to depend on and teenage Cullen is sweet

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

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

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
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

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.

I love romantic suspense with psychics. Really, it's one of my catnips. Here...well, it was just ok. Actually, it was overall really good until we get to the climax, then it went from good to 'oh come on'.

The story is told in an interesting way. Part One is the past, the characters falling in love as teenagers, then breaking up because of tragedy. I thought that part went on too long or maybe I just felt it was too mushy. Instead of seeing how the hero learns of the heroine's gift, we are told a
