Resurrection, NY is America’s only supernatural friendly town, built on an outfolded pocket of Faerie. Werewolf cop Adam Santini is sworn to protect and serve all of Resurrection’s races – including unsuspecting human Talents who wander in from Outside.

Ari stumbles into Adam’s town from the Big Apple. She’s hot on the trail of a mysterious crime boss who wants to exploit her telekinesis for his own evil ends. If she can’t get Henry Blackwater off her back, she and her two most trusted friends in the world had better kiss the decent life they’ve built for themselves goodbye.

Ari’s mission puts her on a collision course with the hottest cop in the RPD. Adam wants Blackwater too, but mostly he wants Ari. She seems to be the mate he’s been yearning for all his life, though getting a former street kid into bed with the Law could be his toughest case to date.

When biology knocks boots with justice, more than bad guys go up flames.



My Thoughts

Emma Holly’s Hidden Talents contains a wonderful mix of reality and fantasy/paranormal creatures and events.  Ari and Adam are your key characters and WOW, are they hot together.

When telekinetic and healer, Ari, tracks the vile Eunuch to the pocket-reality / town Resurrection, NY, she meets Adam, the Alpha Were and lead detective for the RPD.  The intro scene with the Were’s is too funny (who knew were’s could be so amusing and petty at the same time – oh and do NOT pig out on the donuts, lol)

In Hidden Talents you have vampires, elves, fae, were’s, gargoyles (gotta love Garth!) among many others.  The struggle for Ari isn’t just the tracking and destruction of the Eunuch but also learning to trust and love.  One note: so few authors give magic personal drawbacks, Emma has a unique take on what it costs to have talents and magic . . . fantastic!

This is one sexy yet deep story about love, friendship, and doing the right thing, no matter the cost.  The world creation was amazing, characters very real even with their ‘unique’ natures, and how often do you find an Alpha that blushes?  I recommend this to any that love m/f paranormal romance!  The sex is hotter than HOT!
