I consider Hidden Talents one of her best works. I rarely read a book twice but Hidden treasures will definitely be an exception to the rule.
The price is more than right for this novella; I recommend it to anyone who loves well crafted erotic romances.
Ari can hurt/heal people with her power, and she comes to Resurrection--not realizing until it's too late that she's not in Kansas any more, Toto--to hunt down and kill The Eunuch who has hurt her friends. Luckily for her, Adam and his crew of all-hot, all-the-time werewolf police detectives arrest her before she does any damage. She and Adam are attracted to each other, so what can you do except each other on any horizontal--or vertical for that matter--surface you can find, and NOT in a Lora Leigh squishy Bollywood-type production either. This is good werewolf peen and porn, yo. Me likey mucho.
Adam and his crew decide to use Ari as bait because the The Eunuch wants Ari for his own nefarious purposes because of her special powers which are ramped up in Resurrection. Holly has a great mix of paranormal world building, sweet (yes, SWEET--trust) romance, hot sexxy times, and an actual plot. I loves me some Holly, and I'm hoping this is a series because it was most excellent.
Don't wait around, man--go forth and DOWNLOAD NOW!
Thrown out of her home as a teen by stringently religious parents, Ari found her own family on the streets. Now as an adult, Henry Blackwater, aka the Eunuch, is threatening that family. Ari has come to Resurrection, NY to hunt down the Eunuch, and end his reign of terror. Adam Santini was born and raised in Resurrection,a hidden metropolis of paranormal citizens,and as a police officer he takes upholding the laws of Resurrection very seriously. When Adam gets a call about unauthorized magic, he and his team respond to find Ari torturing on of Henry Blackman's known associates. Adam has been trying to get concrete evidence on the Eunuch for awhile, so sticking close to Ari is a neccessity.....and a pleasure.
That this is a wonderfully sexy, entertaining story should be no surprise to those Holly fans out there. For the unfortunate who haven't had the pleasure yet. This is the place to start. Emma Holly pulls out all the stops in this book. Humor, romance, poignantly emotion moments, and characters that will become part of your literary favorites.
When telekinetic and healer, Ari, tracks the vile Eunuch to the pocket-reality / town Resurrection, NY, she meets Adam, the Alpha Were and lead detective for the RPD. The intro scene with the Were's is too funny (who knew were's could be so amusing and petty at the same time - oh and do NOT pig out on the donuts, lol)
In Hidden Talents you have vampires, elves, fae, were's, gargoyles (gotta love Garth!) among many others. The struggle for Ari isn't just the tracking and destruction of the Eunuch but also learning to trust and love. One note: so few authors give magic personal drawbacks, Emma has a unique take on what it costs to have talents and magic . . . fantastic!
This is one sexy yet deep story about love, friendship, and doing the right thing, no matter the cost. The world creation was amazing, characters very real even with their `unique' natures, and how often do you find an Alpha that blushes? I recommend this to any that love m/f paranormal romance! The sex is hotter than HOT!
One thing that does set this apart from other shifter/were/paranormal fiction is the characterization of the hero. If you read this kind of fiction then you're used to the Alpha male hero. Adam is more endearing because of his self-conscious moments. The smug Alpha male character can get tired. His sweetness makes him a more interesting character especially since he still has to put members of his pack in place.
