5 Stars Wonderful conclusion to the prequel

In A Bride for the Taking, author Lorraine Nelson skillfully and memorably completes the arc that began in the previous book in the series, Cameron’s Quest. Whether Ms. Nelson is writing a romance that is hot or sweet, she delivers a highly enjoyable read filled with unforgettable characters, tight dialogue and page-turning plots interwoven with true romantic suspense, a loyal, loving family, and wonderful vignettes of the Canadian West and ranching life.
This title is full of powerfully sweet love, as Rena Kerrigan, during her first visit to her father’s Canadian home, falls in love for the first time, with Canadian cop Michael Grayson, who has close ties with the Manning clan. Michael tries not to fight his equally growing attraction for the red-headed Rena, but he can’t help but remember what happened to the last woman he loved—and lost—in the line of duty. And duty never has been closer, as Michael races to try to solve the mystery behind who and why someone has set up his step-uncle, Cameron Manning, as a callous murderer. The assignment is all the worse, for Cameron is Rena’s newly discovered dad—and Rena herself is a target, as she uses her new-found psychic ability to try to save the two men in her life.
With Lorraine Nelson, you don’t have to worry about reading a book that, once you strip away the bedroom scenes, you have no story line left. True love, a loving family, humor and suspense are the bedrocks of Ms. Nelson’s novels. And this title, as well as the prequel, go to show that this gifted author knows just how and when to turn heat into sweet, leaving you delighted with the read and looking forward to the next adventure.
5 Stars gifted book for honest review. [...]

Rena has developed psychic abilities. She can communicate with her father in her mind. She also has visions of what everyone thinks is a murder scene if she touches something from the scene or if she visits the scene. Her father is accused of killing someone and Rena works with Michael, the head of the local police, to try to figure out the case and to clear her father. The suspect suddenly has a psychic connection to Rena as well and starts reading her thoughts to find out where they are in the investigation. Rena and Michael make a good team uncovering clues to the case, but Michael has a secret he is keeping from Rena that is keeping them from investigating the feelings that are growing between them. Can they get past all the ugliness and solve the case? And will they ever work through Michael's issues and fall in love?
When I started this book, I didn't know it was part of a series. It was a little difficult figuring out who was who and what was going on because I felt like I had come into the story in the middle. As I read, I started understanding the story and by the end, I was left with wanting to read the rest of the series. It was very well written and edited and the characters were easy to relate to. I give this book a 5 star rating!
