I wasn't planning on reading the entire book b/c of the paranormal element. It was better than I expected so I read the whole thing. This Napier book is like a mini-paranormal romance. It's not too out there in the paranormal scheme of things. Heroine has a gift of sensing dark memories & events when she touches or reads about a negative incident. Her major discomfort with it is more of the focus of this book than her using her powers. She thinks she's a freak & doesn't believe that Hero would want someone like her. Getting to know heroine & new evidence via her psychic powers re: his long-lost daughter is making cynical Hero question his views about life & romance. I felt his struggles & liked that Napier didn't make him change too much or it'd have been unbelievable. Heroine's character development was also linked with her r/s with Hero & her accepting her supernatural gifts more. I liked the resolution of Hero's missing daughter. It was handled sensitively & showcased Hero's emotional development.
