Catherine Spangler is a bestselling and award winning author of the Sentinel Series (urban fantasy romance) and the Shielder Series (science fiction romance). She is a two-time Golden Heart finalist and a RITA finalist and has received numerous other awards and honorable mentions.
She is an active member of Romance Writers of America and her local chapter, Dallas Area Romance Authors. A frequent speaker at writers' groups and conferences, she has taught workshops on the creative process, writing techniques, writing paranormal romance, and goal setting.
Catherine lives in north Texas with her husband and a menagerie of critters. She loves reading, taking naps on the sofa with a good football game for background noise, eating chocolate, and playing poker.
Her fun fact: I celebrated the sale of my first book, Shielder, by drinking champagne from a plastic cowboy boot mug. My critique partners brought four of them to my house, along with the champagne. Drinking champagne from those cowboy boot mugs every time one of us sold a book became a tradition, which we still honor.
Dr. Julia Reynolds has made a new life for herself after being brutally attacked and now has discovered her peace is about to be totally destroyed. Julia has made herself a great career at the University of Houston. But there is one effect from her attack that has brought her to the attention of the Sentinels, powerful reborn beings that protect Earth. Julia doesn't really want to deal with their leader either, but has found he is one person who won't accept no for an answer.
Adam Masters is the Head Sentinel of this area and is actually a bit more than that. He knows that Julia would love to turn away from him, but Adam also knows that she is his other half and is determined to prove it to her. Unfortunately it will have to be done while they are figuring out why one of his men is missing in action and what is causing unusual deaths in the area.
Julia is fighting herself almost as much as Adam in denying her attraction to him. Being forced to travel with Adam and work on his project is another great reason to not want him - right? If only her body would listen to her head and not the heart area. Adam and Julia face their fiery passion and intense danger while looking for the missing Sentinel. When the mission is accomplished, Julia is still fighting her passion and Adam. Which might be why she took her attention off of the other danger, even deadlier to her that has been just waiting for a moment to attack. Will Julia and Adam be able to fight off this other danger that threatens their love before it destroys all hope?

Catherine Spangler continues this excellent series with another tale sure to keep your attention from first page to last. Adam Masters is as close as we could come to having a Superman helping protect the earth. Not only does he have super powers, he's one of those men most of us would want in our lives even without the trappings that come with his race. He's a perfect match for Julia Reynolds, a woman who's been through the hell of rape and doesn't want to let anyone close to her again. Their stubbornness throughout keeps us guessing as to whether either will give in.
The great love story between the two is a feast of sensuality as the battle between good and evil rages around them. Matt Stevens is the missing Sentinel. A psychopath has taken over his body to use for a killing spree to please his bloodthirsty god, Belial. Adam, Julia and their friends are superb characters developed in such a way that the reader will enjoy them all. Ms. Spangler has penned a unique sci-fi thriller sure to quench the readers' thirst for a tale rich in scenarios that will give us that extra punch we look for in a great book. - Dee Dailey

Julia is not happy to see Adam. She has buried that part of her life, she thought, a good twelve years ago. No more visions no more horror. Now Adam is back and with him all her visions and the horrible life she thought she left behind. Adam says she is his conductor - the person to channel the energy he creates as a Sentinel. She is not thrilled or convinced. But Adam has to convince her she is his, as a Sentinel without a conductor is doomed to die horribly. Only together can they beat the evil to come and he is not above using sex to get what he wants. Julia has always brought out his inner bad boy and now he is going to use it against her to get her on his team. But when Julia's life is threatened Adam finds his protective instincts kicking in. He will not let anything happen to the other half of his soul. But can he save Julia from both supernatural and human demons that plague her?
This is the third installment to the Sentinel series with Touched by the Light by Catherine Spangler. This is a supernatural thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. The blend of the paranormal and romance to it makes it a must read for any fan of the Sentinel series. Julia is an innocent to most of the paranormal until one freak accident brings out all her paranormal abilities. She really would rather not be part of all the demonic activity but Adam refuses to lose his mate and Julia is definitely his mate. The one person in the world just for him that can ground his powers. Adam is used to being a protector that is what Sentinels do after all. He is strong alpha male, although sometimes really could use lessons on being subtle but overall he is one yummy hero to remember.
Together these two are one unbeatable team. When you want a thriller/mystery romance you really need to read Touched by the Light.
