For Jonas was not at Verity’s kitchen by accident. She was the key to a chilling secret that had nearly destroyed him…”
This is one the first book of two book series. Gift of Gold I found showed Jayne Ann Krentz’s early collection for the paranormal of psychic powers. Her newer books are displaying the paranormal world and this one gives you a display of a man who has a secret power that gets out of hand until the right woman is by his side.
Gift of Gold was intriguing and exciting with the world of paranormal. You didn’t know what the real reason for the act of revenge until the end. I loved the interaction between the two characters and how they were meant to be together.
Gift of Gold was a fast pace action pack book to read and very enjoyable.
