Cass Weatherfield would do anything to forget the night her overwhelming powers resulted in a fatal accident, and for five painful years she has hidden from the New Orleans community of shadowminds who trained and loved her. But when her telekinetic ex-lover, Shane Tanner, arrives, begging for her help to find his missing sister, Cass knows she can’t run from her past forever. Returning to New Orleans, Cass feels her powers — and her attraction to Shane — growing out of her control once again. (CARINAPRESS.COM, dl $3.99)
