Prodigal Son (Truth Seers #1)
by Debra Mullins
What is it about:
Bounty hunter Rafe Montana is a Seer, descended from the fabled Atlanteans. He uses his inherited power to “see” criminals across the globe and track them down, and he’s just started on a new case. Danny Cangialosi is accused of disappearing with a stolen car...but for the first time in his life, when Rafe goes looking, he is unable to “see” him. Instead, his search leads him to Danny’s stubborn, meddling, and very cute stepsister, Cara McGaffigan.
Cara is looking for Danny, too, but not to turn him in. He is her brother, after all, and she’s convinced he has a good heart. If she can just find him before the cops do, she’ll figure out a way to get him out of this. But Cara didn’t count on a scorching-hot bounty hunter getting in her way.
Despite instant chemistry, Rafe and Cara know they’re never going to see eye-to-eye when it comes to Danny. What they don’t know is that Danny didn’t just steal a car—he stole a precious stone, a stone right out of the legends of Atlantis. It holds powers they can only dream of... and its owner wants it back.
What did I think of it:
This is a very enjoyable read.
The romance is the focus of the book. The search for Danny, the enemies who are after Rafe and Cara: they're all there to make sure Rafe and Cara get to know each other and fall in love.
Not that this is a bad thing. The whole action/mystery story line is like a nice crispy taco shell that keeps the juicy, tasty filling together.
I liked the paranormal elements of this story, and learning more about Rafe, his family, and other paranormal beings. The world building was nicely done, and was intriguing. I also like getting a glimpse of the lead characters of the upcoming books in this series.
All in all this is a very nice Paranormal Romance and I will most certainly read the next book soon.
Why should you read it:
It's a very enjoyable PNR read.
