She’s perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her. Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of MacAllister Booke—a researcher who’s come to investigate the rumors of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there’s something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is—and find the courage to open her heart.

He knew a lot of people thought he was a man more suited to a dark and dusty library. He often was, but he was just as much at home in a tent in the jungle, so long as he had enough battery power for his equipment. Satisfied with his living arrangements, he headed outside to unload the Rover. On his second trip he stopped to watch the sheriff’s cruiser pull up, and Ripley climb out. “Deputy Todd.” “Dr. Booke.” She was feeling vaguely guilty about giving him a hard time on their first encounter. Which she wouldn’t have felt, she thought resentfully, if Nell hadn’t scolded her about it. “You’ve got a lot of stuff here.” “Oh, this is only part of it. I’ve got more being sent it tomorrow.” Nosy by nature, she looked in the back of the Rover. “More than this?” “Yeah. Lots of neat stuff.” She turned her head. “Neat?” “Lots of it.

Not just his mouth, she noted, but his eyes as well. “Some people think so.” They hauled the rest of the boxes and bags in together. “It’s going to take you a week to unpack.” He scratched his head, scanned the piles now crowding the living space. “I never mean to bring so much, but then, you never know what you might need.
