Book 5 in the Award Winning Mind Sweeper Series
How many supernaturals does it take to screw in a lightbulb? For this particular case, way more than Kyle McKinley has backing her up.
When she stumbles upon a dark museum, missing artwork, and a dead security guard, Kyle and her team are thrust into a new mystery. One involving demons. But not your run of the mill demons—realm demons. Tougher, scarier, and banned from earth, they are escaping from the realm and wreaking havoc in Cleveland, Ohio, of all places.
Now the Feds have shown up, and Kyle has to deal with the one person she prayed she would never see again. Dalton. How can she keep the truth of their past from him without jeopardizing the case? Especially when the Key of Knowledge is part of the mystery. The same Key that almost cost Dalton his sanity and is now threatening hers. Kyle is just starting to get her life back together again with Griffin at her side. And now the Fates are forcing her to choose. But when a demon apocalypse looms on the horizon, her only choice is to embrace the Key to save the world, regardless of what it might cost her.
Mind Sweeper, book 1 in the series was a Golden Heart Winner in Paranormal Romance and a double RWA RITA finalist for First Book and Paranormal Romance.
I went back into the dressing room. The second dress never made it out of there. No way was I wearing it anywhere in polite society. I reached for dress three, which was a deep burgundy, and slipped it on. It actually looked pretty damn good in a-way-too-short kind of way. The thin straps showed off my shoulders, and at least my bum was covered this time. But I would have to remember not to reach up for anything, or all my secrets would be exposed.
I opened the curtain, and the saleswoman grinned while she held out a pair of slinky black sandals. I slipped them on and presented myself for Doc and Talia’s inspection.
Doc smacked her hands together. “That’s the one!”
“It’s perfect, Kyle,” Talia agreed.
“That it is,” Doc agreed. “Talia, you should buy the gold one. Those two dresses will knock ’em dead, if they aren’t already.”
Talia and I changed while the clerk rang up our purchases. Then we all climbed back into Talia’s Mustang.
“Now, on to the beauty shop,” Doc announced.
Oh, hell no! “You didn’t say anything about a beauty shop.”
Doc grinned. “Of course I didn’t. You wouldn’t have come.”
“I’m not going to any beauty shop.”
“Did I mention there’s an old-fashioned ice cream parlor across the street from it?”
“You have no shame, woman.”
Doc laughed. “And you need to sow some oats, Kyle.”
Talia said. “I agree, you need to have some fun.”
“I don’t need to sow any damn oats. What are you two, the supernatural version of Thelma and Louise?”
“Hardly,” Talia scoffed. “This car is a classic. No way would I drive it off a cliff.”
