Slipping The Past

It’s fifty years and the future and things are fabulous…for some. Shared technology from an advanced extraterrestrial culture has resulted in genetic enhancements in humans. With the technology, people are also able to acquire or inhabit different bodies. This becomes huge commerce and after the prisons are empty, the rich and greedy are looking for new sources for bodies. So criminals of the past are identified, and Enforcers, who are enhanced psychics, identify the bodies their souls currently reside in. On those persons eighteenth birthday, their soul is moved to a crystal for an infinite power source, and their body is "available." But what if you are one of the damned? Your eighteenth birthday isn’t celebrated, you run.

Jocelyn Miller has been on the run for years. Blind, but unsure why, she has second sight. She can see auras and jump into other people and use their vision to guide her. When Enforcer Gabriel Solaris comes after her she is struck with the sensation that she has known and loved him forever. And he feels the same. He gives her a week to prove her innocence of past crimes and save her soul. And save his as well. Some love lasts forever.

What a fabulous story. Intriguing and different I had trouble putting it down. The tension between Gabriel and Jocelyn was fantastic and just part of the allure. The story was fast-paced and creative and gave me chills. Pursuing her innocence rubs her accuser, a psychic with a zero percent failure rate, the wrong way. But her accuser is mad himself, and has his own agenda where she is concerned. Jocelyn’s brother Nate was a fabulous character in the story, and I hope to see him in another book in the future. The emotion and angst as well as the uncontrollable urge to be together made Jocelyn and Gabriel unforgettable.

Book Blurb for Slipping The Past

Some love affairs last a lifetime…others never end.

Fifty years into the future, if you’re one of the damned, you don’t run for your life, you run to save your soul. Jocelyn Miller is wanted for crimes she committed before she was born. Homeless, blind and out in the elements on one of the coldest nights of the year, her desperation results in a bad decision. When Jocelyn and her brother Nate rob a convenience store, Jocelyn comes face to face with her worst nightmare and greatest love, a reaper named Gabriel.

Gabriel Solaris is an Enforcer, a genetically enhanced psychic often referred to as a reaper for his ability to take souls, and he’s charged with collecting Jocelyn’s. When he finds Jocelyn outside the store, he’s sure she’s up to something illegal. Proving it isn’t necessary. He holds a warrant and it’s all he needs. But the closer Gabriel gets to Jocelyn, the more he begins to question his duty and why he believes her claims of innocence. When Jocelyn tells him she loved him once, Gabriel loses control and kisses her. Instead of taking her soul, he gives her a week to prove innocence in her past-life crimes, something he has no authority to grant.
