Book 1 of 2 Release date_ 3_19_2019
Finding Cade (Dream Catcher Series Book 1)


RELEASED: 3/7/2019

I have this gift, an ability to transcend myself while I sleep.

I never interact with anyone in this out-worldly place. I simply…watch.

I’ve heeded my aunt’s warning to not interfere while I roam freely around the world in my dreams. But that all changes when I find an injured man fleeing his captors.

Now, every night when I fall asleep I manage to find him. I can feel him—his presence caressing my skin. The more I see him, interact with him while I’m in this trance, the more I start to realize that there’s a reason I found him. There’s a reason I sense him wherever I go.

He’s in trouble. In the real world his life is in danger while the shadows keep his soul trapped in limbo. 
I have to figure out how to help him, how to rescue him from the darkness.  I need to save…Cade.

He watches me, scrutinizes my every move. Why? Because he doesn’t trust me. He doesn’t trust in this ability that I have. But yet, he’s still here which means he’s intrigued, maybe even a little curious to see how this will all play out. While living under the same roof proves challenging, I find it even harder to remain unaffected by him. With every glance, every subtle touch I can feel the attraction grow between us…until it’s too strong for either of us to ignore. Now I’m no longer helping a man I found stranded in limbo. I’m helping a man I might be falling in love with. But there are forces at work determined to destroy him, and I need to use every ounce of strength I have to put together the pieces and solve the mystery that surrounds Cade. If I don’t…he won’t survive.
