Psychic Brienne Quaid can handle an object and “feel” the
presence of the person to whom it belonged. As a child, she witnessed how the same
extraordinary powers unhinged her mother and wrecked her parents’ marriage. Afraid of
sharing her mother’s fate, Brie hides and controls her psychic abilities. Now, after years
of subduing her “gift,” she’s haunted by dreams portending death by drowning in a flood.
For sanity’s sake, she flees Los Angeles in hopes of finding security and peace with her
aunt in New Mexico. But a wrong turn during a thunderstorm nearly brings her
nightmarish vision true when she comes within inches of plunging her car into rainswollen
Milagro Creek. She’s rescued by Cal Porter, a man whose tortured soul radiates
anger, pain, and a sadness so deep that it terrifies Brie almost as much as her dark
Eight years ago, Cal Porter was suspected of foul play in the disappearance of his wife
and daughter. Though cleared of any wrongdoing, he’s shunned by everyone but his
immediate family. He’s hiding from the world in a remote desert canyon, writing awardwinning
mystery novels and trying to find out why and how his wife and daughter
disappeared. When he’s forced out of his isolation to rescue Brie Quaid from the
overflowing banks of Milagro Creek, he resents her intrusion on his solitude, but he’s
also fascinated by her eerie resemblance to a character in his latest novel.
Is Cal’s and Brie’s meeting coincidence? Or is fate offering them a chance for miracles
and magic… if they can keep Brie’s fatal vision from coming true?
