Summary

Gone But Not Forgotten

Davy. . .Connor. . .Sean. . . Three brothers who have conquered their demons, but they've never forgotten their long lost brother, Kev, whom they believed to be dead. When the McCloud brothers discover Kev is alive, they won't rest until they find him. . .

Beaten and tortured almost to death, Kev Larsen was found eighteen years earlier in a warehouse alley. He survived his brutal ordeal, but his memories before that night were completely erased. When he nearly dies from trying to save someone from drowning, the brain surgery he has to save his life triggers fragmented, terrifying memories. With only these memories and the name of his torturer to guide him, Kev is determined to unlock the secrets to his past.

Edie Parrish has always been good at not letting anyone get too close to her. If someone were to learn of her unusual gift, her life would be immediately jeopardized. But when Kev Larsen discovers who she really is, Edie has only one choice: to trust him. And soon, Edie can't resist her consuming desire for him--even though she knows she'll have to pay a price for it.

Now Kev and Edie must race against time and place their faith in each other to stop a deadly legacy. . .

Booklist Review

In her hardcover debut, McKenna blasts readers with a highly charged, action-adventure romance featuring Kev, a badly scarred man who 18 years earlier was rescued from being beaten to death but lost his memory. He has always imagined an angel, and suddenly, after surviving a fall, he remembers a name that leads him to a photo of his angel, Edie Parrish, who turns out to be graphic-novel artist and disinherited heiress who draws a character called Fade Shadowseeker, who looks like Kev and has experiences much like his. However, Edie drew the incidents in Fade's life before they actually happened. This extra-steamy romance pits Kev and Edie against diabolical businessmen and scientists who are working on a deadly mind-control method. Kev's adopted brother has his back, but his long-lost biological brothers, their wives, and friends track him down, leading to misunderstandings and revelations.--Tixier Herald, Diana Copyright 2010 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Kevin McCloud, believed dead for 18 years, resurfaces in fantastic fashion in McKenna's latest red-hot McCloud sizzler (Edge of Midnight; etc.). After recovering from an injury suffered while trying to prevent a drowning, Kev, now 40-ish, begins remembering what happened leading up to the traumatic events that left him an amnesiac and is lured back into the dark web cast by the evil scientists intent on completing the now-dead psycho scientist Christopher Osterman's devious mind-control invention. When Kev meets graphic novelist Edie Parrish at a book signing, they forge a connection that's deeper than romantic; as it turns out, Edie has psychic powers, a history with Osterman, and believes Kev may have inspired the hero of her graphic novel. McKenna's steamy style, sci-fi twists, and possible family reunion makes this the best McCloud update yet, but readers who aren't already well versed in the series will want to start with the earlier volumes.

Library Journal Review

Without knowing why, Edie Parrish has always been Kev Larsen's talisman, and he has always been her muse. When destiny introduces the couple, they finally feel complete. But just as their dreams start to become reality, their nightmarish past revealing who they really are and why they know each other may not only drive them apart but kill them. Verdict Marking the author's Brava hardcover debut, McKenna's sixth entry (after Extreme Danger) in her popular series featuring the McCloud brothers reintroduces a lost sibling and blends an intensely terrifying psychic thriller with a mind-blowing erotic romance-shelve only in your adult collections. Series fans will love this, but it also stands well alone for new readers who enjoy romantic suspense with a paranormal flavor.-Debbie Haupt, St. Charles City-Cty.
