From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Mullins (Too Wicked to Love) weaves a believable, spicy tapestry of love, intrigue, and family ties in this splendid paranormal romance. Cara McGaffigan will do anything for her bail-jumping stepbrother, Danny, her only living relative. Anything includes flying to Las Vegas in an attempt to find him before bounty hunter Rafe Montana does. Rafe is a Hunter whose family is descended from a survivor of ancient Atlantis, a man driven by past demons. Together, Rafe and Cara must unravel the mystery of Danny&'s disappearance and find him before he falls prey to sinister forces. Well paced and tightly plotted, this enthralling page-turner matches a strong yet vulnerable heroine with a flawed alpha male to create a deliciously engrossing story. Suspense and romance are wrapped together in such a way that neither overwhelms the other—and they combine beautifully with intriguing secondary characters, sensual passion, and powerful themes of trust and loyalty. Agent: Lucienne Diver, Knight Agency. (Oct.)

Rafe Montana is a bounty hunter with a little something extra. He’s a Seer and it makes him exceptional at his job. However, there are serious shenanigans afoot and Rafe gets caught up in the middle of it along with his new skip trace, Danny Cangialosi and Danny’s step-sister Cara McGaffigan. Now it’s not just a matter of bringing back an errant alleged criminal, it’s a race to prevent evil from destroying mankind.
An interesting concept about Atlanteans, their descendants and how they have powers. I like the backstory and the characters are decently crafted. However, the dialogue lacks at times, the plot drags here and there, and some of the actions stretch the bounds of believability. Like Cara. She can be totally stupid at times which jars when she’s being pretty smart. I mean, come on. All-in-all a so-so read and I may continue with the rest of the books at some point. Right now there appears to only be two more, so maybe it’s only a trilogy.
The image is in color, so Rafe knows that Danny is still alive. The problem is, he cannot see Danny's location. Utterly perplexed, Rafe accepts the otherwise straightforward case, and begins his search for Danny the old fashioned way. He has no idea that the search will make a full circle, bringing him face to face with his past, his family, and with a history that is far more complex than he ever imagined!
I enjoyed the banter between Rafe and Danny's step-sister, Cara. They share an instant attraction. And while they both are eager to find Danny, Cara knows that she needs to get to him first. Eventually, seeing that they share a mutual goal, they join forces. Still, their interactions are strained by the fact that Cara believes Danny is innocent, while Rafe believes Danny is running from the law. But Rafe is a strong, handsome, and protective man with superhuman powers. How can Cara resist such charms? Together, they embark on a journey of danger, discovery, and self awareness surrounding where they came from and (more importantly) where they are going. There were some inconsistencies near the end. But still, this was a great story with some unexpected twists! Note: This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review
