Summary: 

Twenty-two year old Honor Melanie (Mel) Sullivan has an affliction. Due to childhood trauma and inappropriate social behavior, she is diagnosed with Aspergers, a form of autism. But, Mel knows Aspergers is not her true affliction. She prefers not to gaze into a person’s eyes because she is a soul reader, and what she sees can be frightening. It can also get Mel into trouble.

After a brush with the law, Mel leaves her family home in Southern California and travels to Oregon where she meets Harley-Davidson riding William McCarty (Billy the Kid) and stumbles upon a human trafficking/baby-selling scheme involving a foreign girl from Kazakhstan and others. Even though Mel’s life is in danger, she won’t stop until she finds the answers that will help those unable to help themselves.

~ Except ~

His cheek scrapes across mine, his mouth just inches from my lips.

“Look at me, Minnie,” he whispers. “Tell me what you see.”

I lift my gaze and stare into his eyes, fully expecting to see my own face, possibly streaked with bits of sticky syrup and framed with flattened helmet hair. Nothing scary. Just something I’d rather not experience right now. But someone changed the channel.

My breath hitches in my chest. “Fire,” I say. “I see a smoldering fire.”

Billy’s mouth grazes my cheek. “Smoldering, huh? Let’s make it burn hotter.”

His lips touch mine, tentative at first, until I wrap my arms around his neck and try to climb inside his skin. He deepens the kiss, his silky tongue slipping into my mouth. I’m transported to another place. My world consists of all things tactile. The sound of our breathing. The smell of his leather jacket. The warmth of his body against mine. The softness of his lips. The heat spiraling through my body like wildfire. More. I want more.

I’m brought back to earth by the sound of a honking horn and a raucous shout, “Hey, you two, get a room!”

Embarrassed, I push away from Billy and stare at the ground, trying to get my breathing under control. Billy grabs my hand and kisses the back of it like an errant knight wooing a fair maiden. This strikes me as hilarious and I snort laugh. Also embarrassing.

Billy releases my hand and tilts my chin back. “I’m not leaving until you look at me one more time. I promise you, it’s safe.”

Summary: 

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE IS FOR THE FAITHLESS
One dedicated youth pastor will soon know the reason why

Shortly after relocating his family to the sweet tea-obsessed town of Sumlyn, Missouri, things start to unravel for a dedicated youth pastor. Hawes Trainor has always gone where he’s called without question. And the move to a satellite church from Newhall, CA is no different save for the well-being of his young daughter, Danielle. Affectionately called “D” by her dad, the twelve-year-old soon lands in the local hospital under the watchful eye of the mysterious Dr. Grove. For Hawes and his school teacher wife, Angela, the situation soon spins out of control. He may call the shots, but Angela was nearly selected for the Space Shuttle Challenger, coming within only a few teachers of the fateful mission. She has dreams of her own, yet must put them aside to figure out why D isn’t coming out of the hospital. It’s the end of 1985 and the Challenger is getting closer to launch. Will it be one disaster after the next for the youth pastor of unshakable faith? Read In Defense of Knowing by Charles Mahoney and travel back thirty years to when Ronald Reagan was President and there was still a Cold War going on. Experience good versus evil in this “absolutely chilling” tale from one of the most inventive novelists working today.
