CFBI agent Jasmine McLellan leads a psychically gifted team in the hunt for a serial arsonist?a murderer who has already taken the lives of three innocent people. Unleashing her gift as a Pyro-Psychic, Jasi is compelled toward smoldering ashes and enters the killer’s mind. A mind bent on destruction and revenge.

This was a crime fighting mystery with a side order of psychic abilities and romance. As a police procedural, it is exciting with a slight futuristic vibe. It is a bit disconcerning to read a “future” story set in 2012, but it is still fun and exciting.

The psychic abailities in the story were unique and interesting. I loved how everyone’s individual abilities worked together to create a coherent team. I would love to read more about each person’s abilities as I am sure they each have a story in their past. The team members also have a history together that is only hinted at, but I want to know more about.

The romance in the story is steamy and hot. There is one sex scene, but it is not overly graphic. The romance feels slightly cookie-cutter as there is nothing really unique about two stubborn people fighting their attraction to each other.

Overall, this was a fun read that worked better as a paranormal procedural than a romance. I’d love to read more about the team and their investigations, although it would be better without the stereotypical romance butting in.
