Mason LaCroix is struggling with his new found abilities, but when the Phoenix Agency tells him his older brother, Nash, is missing, he’ll overcome whatever he has to, to save him.
May Rebassa doesn’t trust anyone. She’s been hurt one too many times and all because of her powers of telepathy and projection, but when Nash LaCroix saves the only person she thinks of as family and is injured in the process, she feels she has no choice but to put her trust in Nash’s younger brother Mason. The man who broke her heart years ago.
The GKA want one thing, they want Mason and his new powers to break their former leader out of a Phoenix Agency prison and they’ll stop at nothing to get that.
Even if it means burning the north to the ground.
Mason’s stomach twisted as he thought of his older brother injured.
Nash had been the one to look out for him and Parker. And he was worried that Nash didn’t want the Phoenix Agency’s help. Lexie hadn’t wanted the Phoenix Agency’s help either and looked how that almost turned out.
“I’m going to have to look at you face to face before I trust you.”
“Funny how you’re suddenly so concerned about trust,” she snarled.
The voice sent a shiver of recognition down his spine and he whipped around and stared straight into the dark eyes of May Rebassa. The woman who haunted his dreams.
The woman who left him, broke his heart, and hated his connection to the Phoenix Agency. He never knew why, but given her telepathic and projection abilities, he was beginning to understand her fears.
“May?” he asked in disbelief.
She rolled her eyes. “Don’t talk to me out loud.”
“You’re the one who broke the connection.”
May looked over her shoulder as if she was spooked. “We’re not safe here.”
“No kidding,” he muttered.
“Kiss me,” she whispered, suddenly getting into his personal space.
“What?” he asked, stunned. As much as he wanted to he didn’t want it. He didn’t want to hurt her, but she ignored him.
She pushed her body against his and locked lips with him in a hot, urgent kiss that caught him off guard. She shoved her tongue into his mouth and he wrapped his arms around her, pulling her body flush with his.
“I hope you’re ready to run. Things are about to get fucked up in here,” she spoke in his head.
And before he had to time to process what was going on there were shouts, screams and gunfire.
May broke off the kiss and pulled him down behind the bar. Mason looked back to see a polar bear, like the one that had come to him, standing in the middle of the bar, on its haunches, roaring like it was about to attack.
It sent chills down his spine.
It was a horrific sound.
“Holy shit!” he shouted above the din, completely stunned.
“It’s just a projection. Come on!” she grabbed his hand and led him outside through the back.
