Years ago, Taige and Cullen were deeply in love.  Then fate stepped in, dividing them when no one else could.  Cullen blamed Taige for not being able to prevent his motherís death, and pushed her away.

Since then, Taige has put her psychic ability to good use, using it to help other people.  Sometimes she prevents a tragedy, sometimes she can only provide closure and justice. 

Now Cullenís young daughter is missing and only Taige can help him find her.  Will she be able to save the girl before it is too late?

If you have never read a book by Shiloh Walker, THE MISSING is a great place to start.  In this book, Ms. Walker spins a riveting tale of suspense and romance, topped off with a bit of the paranormal.

My heart absolutely went out to Taige.  This poor woman has been through so much in her life but she perseveres through it all.  She lives her life for others, even though her personal life is lonely and bereft of love.

Or so she thinksÖ

The one thing she does have is some pretty lively and realistic dreams of her ex-lover, Cullen.  She has never been able to forget him, despite the things he said to her at the end.  Really, she blames herself for his motherís death as much as he did, even though she knows her gift canít be directed that way.  Her visions come to her without rhyme or reason, and she can never control who she can save.

Those dreams kept her feelings about Cullen alive and well, so she is more than primed when he walks back into her life.  Interestingly enough, he seems to feel the same way about her.

Cullen may have made some big mistakes, but it is easy to forgive him when it is obvious how much he really cares for both Taige and his daughter.  He is as contrite as can be about the way he treated Taige in the past and will do anything to make up for it and win her love back.

The romantic hurdles are the easy ones here.  The real threat comes in the form of the serial killer who now has his hands on Cullenís daughter and seems to be targeting Taige now as well.  The suspense is high, and the author peppers the story with enough clues to the murdererís identity to keep readers on pins and needles to the very end of the story.

If you like your romance novels emotionally charged and filled with suspense, you will not want to skip THE MISSING by Shiloh Walker!
