Summary

For men in mid-life crisis, women in dull jobs, or anyone seeking adventure, Absent takes you on a wild ride.
 
Carter Sutherland, a former high school science teacher, is now a think tank executive living near D.C. His world is precise and analytical; his demeanor, reserved. Because he is partially color-blind, his black-and-white perspective is both literal and physical—until he meets client Tracee Green—a synesthete who sees words as colors.
 
When she offers to take him on 4 sensory-rich, cerebral journeys to improve his perception and emotional intelligence, he readily agrees.
 
With the power of suggestion and questionable beverages, Tracee Green guides Carter to pivotal eras in time where he assumes the personas of his alter-egos: Arturo, Arthur, Kar, and RT. With each journey (both sensual and gut-wrenching), he learns about himself and the world around him—insights he applies to a camouflage project at work.
 
There’s no denying that Carter is attracted to his vision guide, who delights in teasing him with innuendos and blurred reality. And there’s no uncertainty, that his wife, Sarah, isn’t thrilled with him visiting Tracee at the Green Light Foundation.
 
The plot turns when Carter starts to suspect the Green Light Foundation is a front for something else. With the help of his son, an investigative reporter, a subplot is revealed.

    Lady Evina Maclean has heard much about Rory Buchanan’s skill as a healer. What she hasn’t heard is how good the brawny Highlander looks bathing in a waterfall. But Evina can’t afford the distraction, for her ailing father urgently needs care. Only when she’s rendered Buchanan unconscious and dragged him back to her family’s castle does the truth emerge—it’s not Rory she’s kidnapped but his brother Conran. 
    Other ladies try to ensnare Conran with flattery. Evina hits him over the head with the hilt of her sword to save her kin—and Conran likes the spirited redhead all the more for it. He’s learned enough from his brother to heal Evina’s father, but there are other dangers swirling around the Maclean clan. And while the beautiful, independent lady has sworn not to marry, this wrong Highlander may be just the right man for her.

    Shiloh Harrison was hoping for a few days off to recover from a particularly nasty assignment, preferably with the help of the talented hands (and, well, the rest of his body too) of her sexy boyfriend, Vincent. But when a group of vampires takes an entire trailer park hostage, there’s nothing to do but make her apologies and get to the scene. 
    Such is the life of a Federal Marshal in the Paranormal Investigators Unit. 
    Yet this isn’t like her typical track-and-nab case: something is going on that has vampires scared, and it takes all her strength not to imagine what could frighten such powerful creatures. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have that option. Her boss is MIA, someone is snatching vampires, and there’s a ticking clock that can only end one way: a bloodbath. 
    Unless she can stop it. 
    The first book in a new series, Stray Magic is a dark and sexy mystery, with enough twists and curves to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
